Recoverable Materials

Thunderblight Ganon is one of the four Blight Ganons, phantoms of Calamity Ganon that took control of the Divine Beasts.[6] It is found either inside the Divine Beast Vah Naboris or in the center of Hyrule Castle if it is not already defeated. It is responsible for bringing Urbosa to her demise.[7]

Thunderblight Ganon, unlike others are extremely fast while dealing high electricity damage. Link can use Foods or Elixirs with high-level electricity resistance to prevent taking too much damage during the fight. Thunderblight Ganon has three phases. In the first phase, Thunderblight Ganon will speed towards Link and attack him.[8] Link can simply block its oncoming attacks and then retaliate. Once Thunderblight Ganon's health is halfway down, it will change its strategy and stay levitating out of reach. Thunderblight Ganon will drop metal pillars all over the room and strike them with electricity. Link must use Magnesis to grab one of the pillars and shock Thunderblight Ganon with its own electricity. For the third and final phase, Thunderblight Ganon will behave as it did in the first phase but it will attack much more aggressively than before

Once Link has defeated it, Thunderblight Ganon will explode and Link will be rewarded with a Heart Container. Urbosa will thank Link for defeating Thunderblight Ganon and freeing Divine Beast Vah Naboris by gifting him Urbosa's Fury.[9][10]

Other Appearances

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity

Thunderblight Ganon, along with his brethren, appears in Age of Calamity. He appears in Lightning and Wind, along with Windblight Ganon. Like his betherin, he looks different, probably due to being in his prime. He has electrical orbs behind him, and his weaponry is lime green, the same color the electric element is portrayed as. He duals with Urbosa for control over Vah Naboris and managed to gain an advantage over her and goes in for the kill while she was vulnerable, but a time portal from Terrako opens, bringing forth Riju and Patrica where they ram into Thunderblight before he could reach the Gerudo Champion and is defeated by Link and his friends upon arrival. He also appears in Each Step Like Thunder, where he disrupts electrical equipment Purah was using. You eventually fight him, where he's defeated again.
