Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Has A Weird DLC Boss Weakness

There are a handful of new bosses to face off against in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and one of them has a pretty weird weakness that will allow you to exploit it and beat it rather easily. In fact, there's a quick visual guide to show you just how weird the boss weakness is.

YouTuber Gaming Reinvented has a video tutorial that lasts only 17 seconds. There's no need for a lengthy commentary track or a half hour's worth of tips and tricks. Gaming Reinvented simply starts the video by opening up the inventory, selecting his stash of bananas, and then placing them down on the ground so that when the monk, Maz Koshia, comes for Link he instead gets distracted and starts eating the bananas, leaving Link open to attack him from behind.

Koshia is a monk that comes from a tribe that split from the Yigas, who originally had a weakness for the exotic bananas. So at the very start of the fight when Link places the bananas on the ground, the final boss is compelled to go grab a quick bite to eat. Little does he know that it opens up the perfect opportunity for Link to get in a massive amount of damage while the final boss in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild -- Champions' Ballad is busy bent over eating the healthy snack.

If you were having trouble with Koshia before that point, this little Easter Egg might help you beat him a bit easier than trying to charge in head first.

He's one of the new bosses you fight in the game in the latest DLC outing, which will take you about as much time to beat as the average $60 AAA game. Yes, the DLC is that long and requires Link to first complete a series of trials before having to fight the four main Divine Beasts again for a second time.

For those of you who played through the original version of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, you'll likely know just how difficult it is facing off against each of the bosses on the road to Calamity Ganon at Hyrule Castle. So you can imagine just how challenging it is having to face off against those same bosses again.

Of course, given how hard the bosses and new dungeon trials are throughout The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - Champions' Ballad, it's likely a welcome change to have a gimmick that can be exploited at the start of the fight.

Nintendo rolled out the new DLC for the Switch exclusive during this year's The Game Awards, where conveniently The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild walked away with the award for Game of the Year. So if you've been playing the new DLC since then and have found yourself stuck fighting the boss, you can now use the banana trick to help give you some leverage against the boss at the start of the fight.
