Bio-Electric Anemone: Barinade is the third boss in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. It dwells Inside Jabu-Jabu's Belly.

Speed strategy

The major item picked up in this dungeon was the Fairy Boomerang and you're definitely going to need to use it. This is also the first point in the game where you absolutely HAVE to use Z-targeting, so if you haven't already learned, you'd better. This battle is frantic and confusing, but not too hard - the first time I did it, simply Z-targeting and boomeranging everything in sight served quite well.

To start with you have the electric shocks to deal with. Provided you keep moving at a high enough speed, most of these will miss you. They are signalled by a flash of light from the trumpet that is about to fire at you. However, the camera will probably swivel around to a position where you can't see Barinade itself, making the next bit tricky. You need to Z-target the tentacles connecting Barinade to the ceiling and hurl your Fairy Boomerang in that direction. They do not reattach themselves so you don't have to hurry (except in as much as you should always hurry in a speed run).

Now Barinade is able to move, whirling its first row of jellyfish around it for protection as it chases you. While on the retreat from the deadly electric carousel, you have to turn around and aim a boomerang shot at Barinade's centre. This will stun the creature and cause the jellyfish to stop moving. (If you are very, very quick, you can do this BEFORE they start spinning.) Ignore the first wave of jellyfish and do as many jumping Deku Stick attacks as you can - this will cause the first wave of jellyfish to simply disappear.

For phase three the second row of four jellyfish will fan out to chase you, and now Barinade will be moving much faster and attempting to fry you with electric shocks at the same time. This makes turning around for long enough to draw a bead on its red lower middle becomes a dangerous affair. However, once you manage to stun Barinade, its belly is no longer exposed. That means you have no choice but to take out jellyfish. Barinade will soon recover to chase you, so repeat the stun-attack pattern until all the jellyfish are gone - but if you are VERY fast, you can take out all four in a single stun cycle.

Lastly, keep stunning Barinade and breaking all your remaining Deku Sticks over it until it dies.
