In "The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess," Link's spin attack deals a devastating blow to enemies foolish enough to surround him. The move damages and knocks away enemies, enabling you to retreat to safety. The spin attack works whether you're playing as human or wolf Link. The controls to perform the spin attack differ depending on whether you're playing the Nintendo Gamecube or Wii version of the game.
Approach an enemy or let a group of enemies surround you.
Hold down the "B" button for a few seconds to charge the spin attack on the Gamecube. Release the button to perform the attack. Alternatively, rotate the control stick to charge the attack and then tap "B" to perform it.
Shake the Nunchuck left and right to do a spin attack on the Wii. You can't charge the spin attack on the Wii version of the game.
Tips & Warnings
- Once you've done a spin attack, you need to wait a few seconds before you can do the move again.
- The Great Spin move is an upgrade for the spin attack, and it's the last hidden skill you will learn. It widens the range of the spin attack, allowing Link's sword to strike enemies from further away. To get it, go to the Hidden Village. As wolf Link, break the window of the building on the west side of the area. Jump through and you'll go to a hidden spot in Castle Town. Access the Howling Stone to learn the move.
