If you've invested some serious hours into The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild then you'll no doubt recall the first time you encountered a Lynel, a centaur-style monster which packs a serious punch.

Lynels are perhaps the toughest non-boss enemies in the entire game, and it should therefore come as no surprise to learn that some players have made it their mission to find new and inventive ways of dispatching them.

Take Lunisequious Solivagant's approach, for example - the fight lasts 20 seconds and Link doesn't take a single hit. When you can do this, you know you've mastered the game:

Zyzyoro's tactic involves crouching underneath the monster as it swings, which is quite effective:

Some players aren't content with merely overpowering Lynels - they want to humiliate them as well. GirKart64 attacks one of these beasts with arrows, a pot lid and a ladle:

The prize for most amazing Lynel takedown has to go to DeliciousTea Gaming, who manages to beat the monster with no weapon or armour equipped and only three hearts. To get the job done they use a lump of part-metal rock and the Magnesis Rune.
