Features

The Thunder Dragon's Lighting Round is, as its name implies, a challenge that Lanayru presents to Link. The objective of the challenge is to either complete all 11 (12 in Hero Mode) boss battles or all of the Silent Realm challenges. The battle against Demise is only re-playable in Hero Mode.

In Hero Mode, all 12 battles are available as soon as the mini-game is unlocked.

Boss Battles

If Link chooses to replay Boss battles, he must face all of the Bosses in succession of each other without the use of bottled items. The only items Link will be able to use are the items he had at the time he fought each boss and whichever Shield he is currently equipped with. At the start of the round, the young hero will be able to choose the first Boss battle. Then the Thunder Dragon will choose the next battle depending on how well Link performed in the battle.

If Link beats his record time, Lanayru will automatically reward him with 50 Rupees. If Link dies, he will only receive the Rupees he has earned by beating his best times.
