     1. Introduction
      Well, here I am, with another FAQ, fvor SNES this time.This FAQ was
    made for the best game of all time, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the
    Past.It's for those bosses that seem to nag and nag and nag at you...
    and you cant seem to beat. Hey, I know how it feels! That's why I made
    this FAQ, to help cowards like me(lol).No, really, I made this FAQ to
    help people who are having trouble and can't beat the bosses NO MATTER
    WHAT THEY TRY. And so, as I come to the closing, I must give you a
    you want to spoil the whole entire game,because I AM going to spoil it
    for you. You know that, don't you?So, read this AFTER beating the game,
    or if you really, REALLY need help. Understood? Okay, now that we
    understand each other, please let me get to the next section? (Not that
    I'm going to let you stop me)
     2. For Starters
     Okay, here we are ankle deep in my FAQ! I can't seenm to close my
    mouth, can I? Oh, well, I love to talk, and... well, I'm getting off the
    subject, so let me get into what this second section is about.It tells
    you a litle about the bosses.Well, anyway, as in the other Zelda
    games,the items in the big chest are the key to defeating the boss, as
    in the Swamp palace,Eastren palace, and others.All the bosses have
    something in common, that you probably could see- they all have a weak
    spot, or something that will make killing them a WHOLE lot easier.And of
    course, I have a rating for the bosses, on a scale or one to five stars,
    five being VERY hard and one being ridiculously easy.With that in mind,
    let's go!
     3. Light World Bosses
     The light world bosses are easy compared to the ones later on. To help
    you out, I'll tell you the location and how to get there, on top of
    everything else, as you will see in a few minutes.
    1st boss: Ball and chain trooper
    Description: an armored soldier with a spiked ball on a chain
    Location:Hyrle Castle
    How to get there:Defeat the soldier who has the key
    Items needed:Pots, Boomerange, or Sword
    What to do:Throw the pots at him for an easy win,or throw the boomerang
    and hit him with the sword. Watch out for his spiked ball attack!
    2nd boss: Armos Knights
    Description:six moving statues
    Location:Eastren Palace
    How to get there: Kill all the enemies in the room prejourning it
    Items needed:bow & arrow , or sword
    What to do:This boss is pretty easy,all you have to do is hit it with
    three arrows, until you get down to the last one. It will turn red and
    charge at you, trying to stomp you.Just move around and shoot! If no
    arrows are handy, the good ol sword will work just fine
    3rd boss:Lamolas
    Description:Three large centipedes
    Location:Desert Palace
    How to get there: have big key and lantern handy
    Items needed: sword or Arrows
    What to do:This boss is easy too, just a tad harder, not much troble.
    The lamolas with spit out 4 rocks before coming up.Hit them in the head,
    until there is only one left.He will spit out EIGHT rocks. Approach him
    quickly, but with caution, or you will get hit. You can also use Arrows,
    but for less damage
    4th boss: Moldorm
    Decription:A bigger version of the littler worms.
    Location:Tower of Hera
    How to get there: go up the stairs, then drop down the ledge
    Items needed:Sword and/or spin attack
    What to do:This guy is easy, if you know what to do.See that tail? Hit
    it,preferably with the spin attack.Be wary of the edges, or you will
    have to start all over again (ugh). After you hit him five or so times,
    he starts going really fast! One more hit to the tail should do it.
    5th and final boss (of the light world)Agahnim
    Descriiption:A large,evil wizard
    Location:Hyrule Castle
    How to get there:After the cinema,hack open the curtain
    Items needed:Master sword and gool luck(seriously)
    What to do: He is much easier than he seems. All ya hafta do is reflect
    his yellow beams, hack at the blue ones, and get at the sideswhen he
    goes to the top.A couple of hits, and her gives you a message, then you
    are taken to the Dark World.
     4.Dark World Bosses
     Much harder bosses in this part, folks!Time to get down and dirty with
    it.Much harder, as you should know. Same as last time, just follow the
     1st boss:Helmassaur King
     Description:A large helmassaur with a green jewel in his head
     Location:Dark Palace
     How to get there: Big key and lantern
     Items needed:Sword and bombs,or hammer
     What to do:I saved him for the last boss.He is even harder than
    Trinexx! Anyway, first things first. Take off his mask with hammer or
    bombs.threee hits will do it. Avoid his tail(When it starts swinging
    fast) by getting into one of the unspiked corners.After you get off his
    mask,hit the jewel in his head several times for a victory.Watch out for
    the fireballs!
    Difficulty:************** (No joke)
    2nd boss: Arrghus
    Description:jellyfish surrounded by his larvae
    Location:Swamp palace
    how to get there:water fall and key
    Items:lucky charm and hoookshot/w sword combo
    What to do:Circle around when the larvae do, pull them off and kill them
    /w hookshot , then go after him when they are all gone, after each hit
    he tried to smash you, so do it FAST
    3rd boss:Mothula
    Decription:Giant moth
    Location:Skull Palace
    How to get there:Secret passage and hole
    Items:Fire rod and sword
    What to do:You will drop into a room with the moth. The floor will
    moves, but if you have gotten the treasure from the Ice palace already
    <blue mail> It won't take off as nearly as much damage, if you are
    slammed into the spikes.Also, the spikes move, making him the hardest
    boss yet.Aslo, beware of the beams he shoots from his body. Make sure to
    have a bottle of blue potion on hand, and a fairy, as you will need
    both.8 hits with the sword, so this is the reccomended route to take,
    but it's easier to hit him from a distance,with the fire rod, only takes
    about 13 hits to kill him once and forever.
    4th boss:Blind the theif
    Decriiption:Lovely lady, alias ugly demon after exposing in sunlight, in
    the empty boss room.
    Location:Gargole's domain
    How to get there:Lead the locked maiden to empty room with the square of
    light in the center of it. 
    Items:Tempered sword
    What to do:After getting the maiden to the locked room, lead her to the
    center of it where the patch of light is! After exclaming on how bright
    it is, she will turn into Blind the Theif.Hit him as fast as you can,
    and avoid the floating heads that shoot beams at you and circle the
    room. After losing 3 heads, he dies.He's not as easy as he looks.
    5th boss:Kholdstare
    Description:3 frozen eyeballs
    Location:Ice Palace
    How to get there:Drop down hole on the left, in room 6-4, pick up the
    silver block with the Titan's Mitt.
    Items:Fire rod and sword
    What to do: Once you enter, shoot ice sheild 8 times to make the shield
    melt, all the while avioding the falling ice balls that plop down from
    the cieling .Then shoot them as many times as possible,in a sequence
    preferabbly ,avoiding the same ice balls that come down from the
    ceiling. Each eye takes 6 hits with the fire rod.
    6th boss:Viterous
    Description:Large eyeball with little eyeballs surrounding it.
    Location:Misery Maze
    How to get there:Use big key to open the door- many steps to get there,
    but that is enough info to make this a walkthrough!
    What to do: Stay clear of the slime and the middle,as the slime will
    hurt you, and Viterous <the big one> will shoot lightning from the
    center, exactly like Aganhim's surpreme attack the first time around.
    Get rid of the little eyeballs <use spin attack, they come in groups of
    twos and threes> then kill the big one that climbs out of the slime to
    attack you.It only takes a few hits to lay this monster to rest.
    7th boss:Trinexx
    Description:Big turtle with three heads
    Location:Turtle rock
    How to get there:Cane of Somaria and big key
    Items:ice rod, fire rod, sword < Golden preferably>, and sheer good luck
    What to do:Take out the ice head to avoid hassle, If you don't, you will
    be slipping while Trinexx is buisibly freezing you over> by using the
    fire rod, vice versa on the other head, use your sword once you do
    that..It will turn into a snake creature,hit it in the middle < It
    flashes, and that part only takes about 4 hits>.Watch out for that
    "unmovable" head, as when you least expect it, it will move out where
    ever you are, and try to attack you! Be quick and move!
    8th boss:Agahnim
    Description:Crankly old wizard with two ghost wizards
    Location:Ganon's tower
    How to get there:C'mon... you know the routine
    Items:Good aim and sword
    What to do:Aim all  beam attacks at him, don't bother with the
    others. Now he has two clones with him! Don't worry, you can tell easily
    which one is him, the other two are tansparent, but can hurt just as
    much> Aim at the real one, and after ahwhile, he will fall and Ganon's
    spirit will come out of him...poor old guy...
    9th boss:GANON!!
    Description:Evil man in pig suit
    Location:Pyramid of power
    How to get there:Drop into the hole
    Items:Prayer and every other item that's a weapon
    What to do:Hit him with the sword as many times as possible, avoiding
    his attacks,which is extremely hard to do, or use magic cape.. Also use
    Cane of Bryna, as it does double duty, protecting while attacking, as
    you counter Ganon's attacks with the Sword< golden, hopefully!>He will
    then send blasing things at you. Use the Hookshot to foul things up, and
    hit him if possible.
         Then the outer tiles will break off.
    Hit him if ya can,. Then the lights will go out. Light them back up, hit
    him with the sword.He will turn blue, then hit him with the silver
    arrows, as you can kill him with only four arrows of this type, if your
    aim is true.After every turn make sure you light up the torches, or you
    will die. If you have not gotten the Silver arrows, you are in for a
    long and hard battle.After he is defeated, he will yield the
    TRIFORCE!Seeing it spinning is just spectacular... but I will leave it
    up to you.. congrats, you have beaten the game!
    (That good enough?)
