    Last phase, not entire fight. (Hence, Ganon, and not Ganondorf as the description says).

    Easy way to do this is to stock up on green potions and deku nuts, green potions for the light arrows deku nuts to stun the face and circle around and hit his tail, yes you can damage his tail with deku nuts.

    I thought this would be harder. Guess I'm better than I thought.

    Just have 40 or more arrows and 2 or more green potion. Shoot a light arrow in the face and use megaton hammer or biggoron sword to damage his tail (just don't be a idiot like me, I switched back to the Biggoron Sword in the second phase... Just keep the Master Sword equipped, apparently the second phase can only be beaten with the master sword... I reseted 3 times because of it and had to face Ganondorf AGAIN)

    I might be in the minority but I've always beat him without magic.

    I've always ran up to him, rolled under his legs while he attacked behind me. 1st phase of Ganon, you have plenty of time to turn around and z target tail, then jump strike with Biggoron sword or hammer. (Have to be kinda close with hammer though due to its reach) Run/roll away and quick turn towards him. Rinse and repeat.

    2nd phase when you get master sword back, he's quicker but same strategy works more or less. A safer strategy for 2nd phase while using this method would be to roll under legs, slash with master sword (no z target), roll/run forward a bit and quick turn. Rinse and repeat.

    He'll be closer when he chases you, compared to 1st phase after rolling away, but it's manageable. Not Z targeting also gives enough time to avoid his 2nd slash, if he does decide to do one.

    Probably not the safest nor fastest way to do it, but it worked for me.

    I agree @thepixeljunkie, I've always done it rolling between the legs. Nintendo Official Magazine used to promote this trick back in the 90s and it's great tactic imo
