    ive done this about 45 times now and it refuses to give it to me with the quick kill using the boomerang. It doesn't state otherwise, any chance fixing it. I shouldn't need to kill him with the bow and arrow.

    Phew! Finally did this after several attempts and getting the hang of the fight. Some things that helped me:
    > on phase 3 (worm phase) - equipping a shield helped me a lot. He can run into you and you won’t take damage. As long as he doesn’t squeeze behind you, you should be fine (I kept my back to the wall a lot to avoid this)
    > phase 5 - immediately equip the magic rod and shoot him. Phase over just like that.
    > final phase - you can use roc’s feather to jump over his arms. Once you dodge the initial couple arm swipes - if you keep doing a sweeping motion, he’ll stay back and you just gotta be patient for the eye to open and strike him with the boomerang to end the fight.

    Be patient and even if you fail - my suggestion is don’t get frustrated and just immediately restart the game and fight. I think it helps to play the fight out to get use to the flow

    What annoys me about this is just how long the fight is. It's the only lengthy-ish boss battle in the game with the others having at most two phases with little variation. This fight is six and each phase on it's own isn't terrible but doing them all in one row is breaking me. The original Link's Awakening has dodgy hit detection at times. Sometimes the shield blocks a certain attack, other times the same attack will ignore it. Sometimes an attack lands from a distance but other times point blank will miss. Not game breaking when playing the game normally but when trying not to get hit in specific situations can be frustrating.

    I have to laugh sometimes. I literally got to the point where I was about to give up. One more go and then I'll just give up on the Mastered status and donwgrade for completion. Wouldn't you know it I finally had a fight where everything just clicked. I need to wind down now lol.
