How to Beat Captain Fishook

On the ship you will trigger a boss fight with the ghost called Captain Fishook. Captain Fishook is holding Yellow Toad in a painting. To defeat this boss you need to complete a few rounds. The rounds of the fight are:

  1. Mouth in Deck: shoot explosive barrels into the mouth that moves around the deck. Mouth needs to be open when the barrel is shot.
  2. Shark: after you complete the mouth in deck round you need to fight the shark ghost. To do damage to the shark ghost wait for it to attack and get its hook stuck in the deck. Flashlight then treat it like a normal ghost.
  3. Mouth on Side Deck: use Plunger on the target on the right side of the deck to have ghosts appear. Shoot barrels into mouth when open. 2x.
  4. Shark Again: same approach as previous Shark round. Should beat him on this round.

Once you’ve defeated Captain Fishook you will receive the Elevator Button 13 and Polterpup will appear and drop a ladder down to you. Climb the ladder up to the upper deck and go up to the portrait to free Yellow Toad. Take Yellow Toad back to the elevator and head to 13F.
