Giant Aquatic Amoeba: Morpha is the sixth boss in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. It is the boss of the Water Temple.

Speed strategy

First note that the arena is not completely symmetrical. The door where you enter can be easily spotted as it doesn't have any spikes on it. The blue warp, when it appears, will be in the very middle of the room. And the Heart Container (which you'll most likely be wanting to collect) will appear directly between the warp and the door. It's very easy to lose your bearings during this fight, so here's how to remember.

On your way in, you can trigger the Morpha introductory cutscene by going to the approximate middle of any of the platforms. But after the cutscene, you'll always be in the same place: the platform on the right as you enter. So, on your way in, jump to the platform on the right so that when you regain control, you can keep your bearings. Then, during the fight, remember where the door is and hence where the Heart Container's going to be for a fast exit.

Beating Morpha is very easy to do at high speed. Longshoot the nexus as normal, then back away from it a little and Longshoot it AGAIN, dragging it further out of the water. Continue Longshooting it roughly twice a second and carefully back into a corner, where you and it will be partially shielded in by spikes. Now move around the nexus to block the exit and lay into it with your sword repeatedly. Make sure your first hit pushes it further into the corner, otherwise you will lose it and it will escape back into the water. If you do this quickly enough, you can slash the nexus many times without it escaping; to the point that you can destroy it within a few seconds, thus beating Morpha nearly instantly! Total elapsed time during the boss fight can be as little as thirty seconds. Have fun!
