The Lynel will drop his weapons, horns, hooves, arrows, and large crystallized charges once you defeat him. As soon as you defeat the first Lynel, the second one will spawn.
Blue Maned Lynel
The next Lynel is actually a Blue Maned Lynel which is a more powerful version of the first Lynel. He also comes equipped with Soldier’s Claymore, which is a greatsword, and his attacks will deal even more damage additionally.

After defeating the Blue Maned Lynel, you’ll get his horns, hooves, arrows, weapons, and large crystallized charges.
White Maned Lynel
White Maned Lynel is the third Lynel that you’ll fight in the Floating Coliseum, and as the name suggests, this is the second strongest type of the Lynel enemy type. The Lynel also wields a Halbred, which has really long range and can damage you from afar.

You’ll get your hands on the Lynel’s horns, hooves, arrows, weapons, and large crystallized charges after you defeat him.
The Silver Lynel is the strongest version of this enemy type, and he comes at you with his broadsword and shield additionally. His attacks are similar to the first Lynel, but he deals much more damage and has a much bigger health pool.

Silver Lynel With Armor
The final Lynel that you have to fight is the Silver Lynel, but this time he comes equipped with armor on top. You can easily break the armor using a hammer weapon in Tears of the Kingdom.
- Aside from the armor, the Silver Lynel also uses the spiked-iron-ball hammer, which is a really dangerous weapon with long range.
- You should stay at as much range and use your best bows to damage the Lynel from afar.
