Once Link obtains 15 Tears of Light in the Lanayru Province (11 in Twilight Princess HD), the Twilit Bloat will appear in Lake Hylia, holding the last Tear of Light. Once encountered, Wolf Link must wait until the Twilit Bloat tries to ram into him with electricity and then dodge it. He must then target it and leap onto its lower section in order to bite it. Link must repeat this process twice more until the Twilit Bloat falls into the water, lying on its back. The Twilit Bloat remains in this stunned position for roughly 25 seconds before it regains mobility. Thereafter, only one Jump Attack is needed to stun the Twilit Bloat again.
When stunned, the Twilit Bloat is visible to the naked eye. Link must jump onto its belly and use the energy field with Midna's help to attack its six tentacles at the same time. Once they are all destroyed, the Twilit Bloat will be defeated. This will release the last Tear of Light Link must collect, allowing him to return light to Hyrule.
- The Twilit Bloat resembles a type of sea crustacean known as a Giant Isopod.
