5.Boss Guide

This is one of a few walkthroughs I'm currently making for this game
it will give you the locations and needs for every piece of heart in 
the game as well as a guide to the bosses. There is one spoiler just after
piece 19.  This is for the Wii version of the game. There is no boss guide
for any Ganondorf forms because you gain no heart containers from him.

=Legal Stuff=

This is my guide written by me and me alone, this is for your personal

For the time being this guide may only be posted on:

However if you would like to host this guide on your website seek my
permission, [email protected]
