What we know about all confirmed bosses in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom trailers and teasers have given us hints regarding the enemies we’ll be facing in Hyrule this time around. It looks like we’ll be seeing a mixture of new and classic Zelda bosses when Tears of the Kingdom releases on May 12. While there’s a lot of speculation about possible returning bosses based on images from trailers, not all of them have been confirmed.

All Confirmed Bosses in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

We’ll be seeing the return of the most iconic villain in Tears of the Kingdom: Ganondorf. Nintendo has revealed his new look, confirming that he’ll make an appearance in the game.

This next boss is a three-headed dragon that doesn’t have a confirmed name, but it does seem like a confirmed boss given its massive size and similar appearance to Demise with the glowing red portions of its body. This enemy appears in the final trailer for Tears of the Kingdom.

There also appears to be an ice boss that takes the form of a giant spider, and you can assume its boss status given its massive size and the fact that it appears in an area that looks like it’s in the middle of an ice storm, creating an apparent boss arena. This boss shows up in the final trailer.

Aside from that, you’ll see mini bosses as well, and a few of them look familiar if you’ve played Breath of the Wild. The confirmed mini bosses that will be making a return are the Hinox, Talus, and Molduga as we’ve seen them appear in trailers.

Like with other bosses, there are speculated mini bosses that will be appearing in Tears of the Kingdom without being officially confirmed. Among them are constructs that seem to be made out of cubes and a creature that looks like an alligator-fish hybrid that’s chasing Link in a trailer.
