    How does Link damage C-Ganon once he turns red? I can quickly get Ganon's health down to a 8th. Unfortunately, he turns a glowing blood red color and stops taking damage. What do i next to damage him?

    *i am too lazy to search through the guide, plus this may help others out.*

    Deflect his beams with your shield (perfect parry) or goron power

    I've beaten Ganon twice, and I don't know the proper way to hurt him in that state. What does work though is Daruk's Protection countering an attack of his in that state, making him vulnerable to be hit with melee weapons. But I'm certain there is probably a proper way to actually hurt him in that state if you have used up your Daruk's Protection (or don't even have it), but I don't know what that proper way is.

    edit: Ninja'd, I understand now, using a shield with perfect parry makes sense and was a skill I very rarely have made much use of, so I can see why it didn't occur to me.

    I am horrible at deflecting beams. I die 98% of the time try. And i use up the magic shield too quickly. It sucks it only has 3 charges and takes hours to recharge. Seriously, whoevers idea it was to make the blissings only recharge if you used their max charges up, should be fired!

    Use urbosas lightning attack and it puts him down and removes the red for a few seconds so you can beat him with ur sword.

    Inside your miiind, and poof.
    The trick is to parry a second after you see the beam glow before shooting, like when a guardian's eye first lights up. Any time earlier and you get hit, any time late your shield breaks.

    I think the recharging system is fair. The trick is to not use Daruk's protection until that part of the fight if you're unable to perfect parry. Its really not that hard to do. Also Urbosa's lightning can hurt him as well in that state I believe.
