Introduction and Credits Michael -- First of all I want to start off by saying that this is the very first FAQ I've ever written, so please bear with me if I make any mistakes. Also please keep in mind that while this FAQ is for the color version of The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, it can be used for the B&W game. CPFace -- This is my first FAQ too. I've taken it over for Michael. I'd like to add that the contents of some treasure chests has changed from the B&W to the DX version, but it shouldn't affect the gameplay much, and this guide should still be useful for the B&W game. Any questions or additions should be directed to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Main Items You will receive many items in your adventure. These are the items you will eventually get, in no real order: ::Items you can assign to buttons:: Shield - A very useful item. Can be used to move sea urchins or deflect attacks. There are two types of shields, and one can deflect more attacks than the other. Sword - Link's basic fighting tool. A twice-as-powerful sword can be gotten after you find all of the seashells. Mushroom - Give it to the witch that's just east of the lost woods and she'll turn it into: Magic Powder - Sprinkle it on burnt out torches to light them. Also works on raccoons. :) Bombs - These weapons work on enemies, and they can blow down walls. You can tell if a wall can be blown away with a bomb if it sounds "tinny" when you poke it with your sword. Roc's Feather - Lets you jump over pits and other things. Power Bracelet - Lets you lift up things that you couldn't before. There is a stronger variety that you get later in the game. Pegasus Boots - Lets you run when you hold down the button. You can crash through some rocks this way. Shovel - Dig up the ground with this. You can buy it in the shop. Ocarina - You'll learn three different songs on it, each with a different effect: Ballad of the Wind Fish - Learn it from Marin. Play it in front of the Wind Fish's egg. Manbo's Mambo - Warp to the pool in front of Tracy's house or the beginning of a dungeon if you're in one. Mamu's Song - Use it to revive the dead rooster in Mabe Village. Bow & Arrow - Very expensive, but necessary. Use it in combination with a bomb for explosive arrows! Hookshot - Attack enemies with it or use it to grapple on to blocks and such to pull you across. Boomerang - Weapon that returns to you. If you have the rooster, equip the boomerang and the bracelet, throw the boomerang, and then quickly pick up the rooster. The boomerang will circle under you, and you can attack in the air. Magic Rod - Shoot fire with this very cool weapon. You can also use it to light unlit torches. ::Other items:: Flippers - Swim with these. You don't need to assign them to a button (you can't anyway). The B Button lets you dive underwater, and the A Button lets you swim faster. Seashells - Collect all of them to get a L-2 sword at the shell house. Gold Leaves - Get all 5 and Prince Richard will give you access to the key to the third dungeon. ::Dungeon specific items:: Map - Helps you find your way in the tricky dungeons, but almost useless without the compass. Compass - Shows where the treasure chests and boss are, and gives a tone when a key is in the room you're in. Small Key - Use once to open a locked door. Big Key - Lets you get into the boss's room. Stone Beak - With it, the owl statues in the dungeon will give you a secret. (In the black and white version of the game, it's a stone slab and fragment that you must find.) ======================================================================== 4. Walkthrough NOTE: When directions are mentioned, they mean from your point of view, not Link's. So when I say go right, that means go to the right side of the screen, and not anything else. For those not clear on your compass directions, here's a compass rose: North | West - - East | South a) Getting the Sword Okay, you start off the game in a bed in Marin and Tarin's house. Talk to Marin, and then Tarin. Tarin will give you a shield. Once you've gotten the shield, equip it, then leave the house. Go left two screens, and then keep going south until you get to a screen with two of those spitting enemies. Then go right. Pass the first urchin, and then hold down your shield button. Push one of the two urchins blocking the path out of your way. Continue south, and then go right. Push the urchin out of the way, and then take your sword. Before you can touch it, a talking owl will come out. Listen to what he has to say (it's important) and then take your sword. Go back to the village, defeating any enemy that's in the way with your new shiny sword. Go the the northwest part of the village, and cut down the lone bush there to enter the Mysterious Forest. The owl will talk to you. Then continue up, defeating all the enemies and collecting any rupees, hearts, acorns, or pieces of power they leave behind. Go up again. and then go right twice. Enter the cave. If you want the rupees in the chest, go around the border of the room and push the lower rock into the pit. Cut down the two plants, and then cut the other one down that's on the left side of the rock. Push the rock out of the way and open the chest. Continue through the cave until you get to a room full of rocks. Don't worry about the heart piece; You can't get it until later in the game. Push the rocks around to get to the exit of the cave. Grab the mushroom when you get outside. Now go back through the cave. When you get out on the other side, go up then up again, then right, and right again. Then go down, down, and right, and enter the witch's hut. Equip your mushroom, and use it in front of her. She'll turn it into a magic powder. Now go back into the forest, and to the raccoon. (The raccoon's one screen left and one north of the entrance to the cave that you went through.) Sprinkle the powder on the raccoon. It'll turn into Tarin, and then go up and get the key from the chest. The owl will come again and tell you to go to the Tail Cave. Go back to the village, and then go down again like you did when you were getting the sword, only this time turn directly right just after you leave the village. Keep going right, and then continue along the path until you get to the tail cave. Touch the keyhole, and the cave will open. Go inside. b) The Tail Cave 15 | 8 - 7 - O 14 | | 9 O - 11-10 12 O | | | | | | O 16 6 - 5 - O - O -13 | | | O O - 3 - 4 | 2 - 1 - E To use this walkthrough, look at the map. The E means entrance, and a number represents a room in which an objective must be completed. Each number on the map corresponds with an objective below. The objectives must be completed in order. An O represents a room in which no objective must be completed. The - and | are symbols that there is a path between the two rooms. For instance, look at the 2 on the map. After that objective is completed, make your way over to the 3 and complete the objective in that room. I think this is a better dungoen walkthrough system because now I don't have to give directions like left, right, etc. LINK'S OBJECTIVES 1) Bat the guys into the pit with your sword for a small key. 2) Get the compass, and kill all of the slime blobs. 3) Push the button to get a small key. 4) Defeat all of the enemies in this room for the map. 5) Get the key from the chest. 6) Defeat the mini-moldorm for 20 rupees. 7) Push the lone block any direction to open the door. 8) Defeat all of the guys by flipping them with your shield and then hitting them with your sword. Then go down the stairs. 9) Get the Roc's Feather. 10) Jump across the pit and touch the key block. 11) Get the Nightmare's Key. 12) Match the suits on the enemies for the stone beak. 13) Defeat the sub boss by jumping over the spiked bar and hitting him with your sword. 14) Defeat the Moldorm by hitting its tail 4 times. If he knocks you into the pit, you'll fall into another room. Climb up the stairs in this room and go back in and try again. 15) Recieve the full moon cello. 16) Bomb the west wall of room 6 to enter this secret room. A secret seashell is hidden in a chest in this room. Note: You have to beat the second level before you can buy bombs. c) Bowwow and the Moblins Once you've beaten the Tail Cave, head back to the village. You'll meet again with the owl along the way. When you get back, two little kids will run up to you and tell you that Madame MeowMeow's Bowwow was taken. Now go back to the forest and go to where you got the key to the Tail Cave. From here go right, and right again. Go one more screen right and get the piece of heart. Go up, and follow the path until you see a cave. Go inside. Kill the moblin in the first room, and the several in the next room. When you get to the King Moblin, he will charge at you. Dodge him, and when he hits in to the wall, he'll be dazed for a few seconds. Now, hit him with your sword. He'll be gone in no time. Go through to the next room and touch the post to get Bowwow. Don't return him to Madame MeowMeow yet. You need him to get into the Bottle Grotto. Exit the cave, and go back the the spot where you got the tail key. >From here, go left, up, and continue right till you get to the swamp. Bowwow will eat the swamp plants to give you a path to the Bottle Grotto, which is in the Northeast part of the swamp. d) Bottle Grotto NOTE: If you need to, hit any orbs along the way to continue, or to get to your next objective. 13 - 14-15 - O - O - 17 | | 12 16 | 11 - O 19-18 | | O O 4 10 | | 3 - 1 - 2 - 5 - 9 - O | | | | 20/E 7 6 - 8 20/E is the same room: entrance, objective 20. LINK'S OBJECTIVES 1) Light the torches with some powder to open the door. 2) Defeat the Stalfos for a key. 3) Bop the bats to open the door. 4) Recieve the stone beak from the chest. 5) Read the owl statue. 6) Get the key. 7) Destroy the *&%^*%$ red guy with a sword spin for the compass. 8) Get the floating powder and step on the button for a key. 9) Get rid of the red guys (again) and then circle back around for the key. 10) Push the blocks together and go down the stairs. 11) Smoke the Hinox with your sword. 12) Get the map. 13) Powder one lamp and destroy the ghosts for the Power Bracelet. 14) Get the rupees from the chest. 15) Retrieve the key from the chest. 16) Defeat the rabbit, bat, and stalfos, in that order, for the Nightmare's Key. 17) Kill all of the guys and go down the stairs. While you're down there, pick up a pot to weigh down the second platform. 18) Kill the genie by first dodging his fireballs by jumping all around. When he stops, and goes into his bottle, hit it with your sword, and then pick it up with your bracelet and throw it against the wall. Repeat three times, and then the genie will be "hopping mad". Slash him with your sword when he materializes until he's history. 19) Recieve the Conch Horn. 20) Go back in the dungeon, and get the rupees at the entrance. e) The five Golden Leaves After finishing the Bottle Grotto, return to Mabe village and give back Madame MeowMeow her Bowwow. Then exit east and follow the path until you get to the warp hole. Then go south 3 screens, east one, south one, and into the house. Talk to Richard, and he'll tell you that he needs you to go fetch 5 golden leaves from the castle. Say yes you will, and then exit the house. Now make your way up and right to the castle. On the right part of the castle there's a monkey outside that wants bananas. By now you should have the bananas from the trading sequence (below). Give the bananas to the monkey and he'll build a bridge across to the castle. To enter the castle, start at the bridge and go north twice and west once. You'll find a bush. If you cut it down with your sword, it will reveal a staircase. This secret passage will take you past the castle wall. Here's a map of the castle area. The numbers are locations of leaves; the letters are other points of interest. The leaves don't have to be gathered in any particular order: Outside Inside - Level 1 Inside - Level 2 O - A - O F - E 4 - 5 | | | | 1 C 2 3 - D G - H | | O - B - O 1) Throw a rock at the bird that's sitting in the tree. When it comes flying at you, defeat it with your sword. 2) When the bomber pokes his head up out of a hole, quickly attack him with your sword to get a golden leaf. 3) Defeat all the enemies in this area to get a golden leaf. 4) Stairs lead to F. In the lower area of this room, there are two strange patterns on the wall. Use a bomb to blast the one on the left and a knight will pop out. Defeat him to get a golden leaf. 5) Defeat this guy to get the final leaf. Remember to use your shield! A) This is the secret passage you used to get past the castle wall. B) Entrance leads to D. C) Left entrance leads to G, right entrance leads to H. D) Exit to B. E) Push the button in this room to open the castle's front gate, making it much easier to revisit. F) Stairs lead to 4. G) Exit to C. H) Exit to C. Throw a pot at the door to open it. It's not over yet! If you take the golden leaves to Richard, he won't give you the key you seek, but he will grant you access to one of the more frustrating sections of the game, Pothole Field. Pothole Field is a maze; when you cut some of the bushes, it'll create a path. If you cut the wrong bushes, it'll create a hole. Don't even think of going there without a shovel. Here's how to traverse that nasty maze: ooo out o-oo--- <---oo-o- | o------ v in oooooo- -oooooooo---o- ---------oo-o- ooo-oooo-oo-o- ooo-oooo-oo-o- o---------o-o- ooo-ooooo---o- ------ooo-- o----- The lines are paths and the O's are holes. When you make it to the finish line, cut down the bush and dig on the spot where the bush was. Huzzah! You can unlock the third dungeon by using that keyhole you passed on the way to Richard's Villa, but to actually enter, you'll have to go around to the pond north of Richard's Villa and use the Roc's Feather to jump from island to island. f) Level 3--Key Cavern O - 13- 12- 11 | | 23 15- 16- 19 | | | | 22- 14- 17- 18 5 | | 4 10 7 - A - 9 | | 21 8 | 3 - 6 O | | 2 O | | 1/E- 20 25- 24 Note: Bring a full supply of bombs to this dungeon. You're going to need them. Link's Objectives: 1) Throw a pot at the north door to open it. 2) Defeat all of the enemies to get a small key. 3) Defeat all of the slimes to open the doors. 4) This staircase leads to A. Get the stone beak from the chest after making the blocks go down. 5) Defeat all the enemies to get a small key. Hit the switch to make the blocks go down. 6) Get the map after making the blocks go down. 7) Defeat all of the enemies to get a small key. There are bird-like enemies throughout the dungeon that will teleport away and throw fire at you if you get too close. The only way to defeat them is to lay a bomb down, pick it up with the same button you used to put it down, and throw it at the bird with the same button. It takes two bombs to defeat them. 8) Defeat all of the enemies to get a small key. 9) This staircase leads to 10. 10) Defeat all of the slimes to get a small key. 11) Defeat all of the enemies to open the doors. The bombs will start to follow you around after you touch them. They'll start to count down from three. When they reach one and start to flash, knock them away with your sword, and they'll explode before they can return. 12) Get the compass and bomb the west wall. 13) Make the walking bombs explode and get a small key. 14) Defeat the slimes to open the doors. 15) The mini-bosses. There are two Dodongos, and you have to get each one to eat three bombs by laying your bombs in front of their mouths. You'll get a fairy for each one you defeat. 16) Get the Pegasus Boots. There will be three stones in your way. Push the bottom one to the left, then push the middle one down. 17) Bomb the east wall between the two torches. 18) Equip the Pegasus Boots to one button and the Roc's Feather to the other. Sprint toward the long gap and jump at the last second to make it across. Takes some practice. 19) Get the Nightmare Key. 20) Sprint toward the strange repelling thing with your sword to get past it and get a small key. 21) Defeat the slime in the left passage by taking the left path from room 2 and dashing through the blocks in room 3. Return and go through the right path and defeat the stalfos to get 200 rupees. 22) Defeat all the enemies in this room to receive a small key. 23) Defeat all the enemies in this room to make a chest appear. Go north and take the other path south to claim the 50 rupees inside. When you get all four keys, return to room 14 and unlock all of the locked blocks. Take the secret passage to 24. To get past the first screen of the secret passage, dash at the block guy with the Pegasus Boots. To make it past the spikes, use the same trick that you used to leap over the pit in room 18. 24) Defeat the enemies to open the door. 25) Defeat the enemies to get a small key. Not that you need it. 26) The boss: Big Eyeball. First stage: Slimes will rain down from the ceiling until you dash at the wall with the Pegasus Boots, making the Big Eye fall from the ceiling. Second stage: Use your sword to aim for the center of the eye. The eye will slowly separate. When the two halves are as far apart as you can get them, dash at the eye with the Pegasus Boots and your sword drawn. This will cut the eye into two smaller eyes. (Yuck!) Third stage: When you touch an eye, it'll jump up to the ceiling, only to come crashing down on you. Watch the shadows and avoid their smashing attack. Hit 'em with your sword enough times (I lost track, and believe me, so will you), and they'll be done for. 27) Get the Sea Lily's Bell. g) A long hike This would be an excellent time to get the ocarina from the Dream Shrine. Go inside and hop into bed. Defeat the strange creatures inside very easily by dashing at them with the Pegasus Boots and your sword. Break the "strange object" by dashing at it. You'll find two chests; one holds the ocarina, the other holds 100 rupees. If you want to learn the 'Ballad of the Wind Fish' (hey, you need it to finish the game), talk to Marin. Prepare yourself for a beautiful scene. Note: if you don't learn the song right away, you can still learn it later in the game. Well, down to business. You need the next key, and to get it, you have to get to the Animal Village. Starting at the warp hole just east of Mabe Village, go east, north, east, south, east (bomb the large skull to continue), north, east, south, south, east. Make sure you give your stick to Tarin on the way! You know you're going the right way if you're following the trail. There will be a bush at the end of the path. Cut it down to reveal an underground passage. When you reach the other side, go south, south, east to reach Animal Village. If you go due south when you enter the village, you'll go along a path that leads to Yarna Desert. At least, you would if the lazy walrus wasn't in the way. He seems to be dreaming of Marin. If you give the honey that you got from Tarin (sort of) to the bear, he'll suggest you get Marin to pay a visit. Conveniently enough, the path south of the bear's home will take you to a warp hole, giving you a shortcut back to Mabe Village. Unfortunately, Marin is nowhere to be found. The note on the table in her house says that she went to the beach. Scour the Toronbo Shores to find her. Another peaceful scene follows, and she decides to join you. Take the warp hole back to Animal Village and let Marin give the walrus a surprise. Go due north to find another familiar face from "A Link to the Past", the sand worm. Its head is its only weak point. Try not to get pulled into the quicksand in the center of the screen, or you'll have to start all over. Defeat the worm to get the Angler's Key. Almost there! Return to the Moblin's Lair, where you rescued Bow Wow. Go north, east, east, east, east, south, east, north, east to find the keyhole. Go east one more screen to find another convenient warp hole. From the keyhole, go west, west, south, north (up the stairs), west, west, north to reach the mountains. Enter the cave and follow it to the end. Enter the cave near Papahl and follow it to the end if you want to trade with him. Otherwise, continue east until you find a dry spot and jump down. Congratulations! You've reached Angler's Tunnel! h) Level 4--Angler's Tunnel 13- 12 | | 20 14 11 7 | | | | 19 15- 10- 8 - 5 O | | | | | O - 9 18- O - O - 6 | | | | A - 17- O 21 | | | | 16- 1 - 2 - 4 | | E 3 Link's Objectives: 1) Defeat all enemies to open the door. 2) Get the compass. Defeat all enemies to open the doors. 3) Get a small key. Defeat all enemies to open the door. 4) Get the stone beak. 5) Get the Map. 6) Use a bomb to break the cracked block. Push the other block to the right to reach the chest. Inside is a small key. 7) Use a bomb to break the cracked block. Get a small key from the chest. 8) Defeat the slimes to make a key appear. You can't get it yet. 9) This chest contains a slime. 10) Get a small key from this chest. 11) Mini-Boss. Use the Pegasus Boots and your sword. Hold down the button for the Boots as you run around the block in the center of the room and jab the boss's weak back. Watch out, because he may change directions on you. 12) Use the Power Bracelet to pull the handle in the upper-right hand corner of the room. Then, hurry to one of the exits before the blocks close. 13) Get the flippers. All right! Defeat the slimes to open the doors. 14) Touch the tiles in the order that they light up in to open the door. Be sure to remember the order you touched them in! You'll need this knowledge in just a minute. 15) Told you you'd need that knowledge. The tiles are in the same arrangement, but this time they don't give you a hint. If you step on a tile and it doesn't "flash", it means you screwed up; start over from the beginning. This opens a secret passage to A. In the second room of the secret passage, you have to let the thwomp go down, then quickly climb the ladder, jump on its head, ride it up a little bit, and jump onto the ledge. 16) Get the Nightmare Key. Return to 5. Enter this passage. In the second screen, jump into the water and retrieve the key you earned at 8. 17) Push this button to make the door open. 18) Swim out to the chest for 50 rupees. Take this passage to 9. 19) Go down this passage. The boss is one screen down. Just hit the ball dangling in front of his face quickly, and you should be able to finish him off before he can even attack. 20) Get the Surf Harp. 21) Don't forget to swim out to this chest. It contains 50 rupees. i) A ghost story As long as you're in the neighborhood, go west from Angler's Tunnel and enter the cave. You'll learn Manbo's Mambo, which should make travel across Koholint a bit easier. There's no key for the next level; the catfish's mouth in Martha's Bay is wide open, waiting for you to jump in. However, after you do a little traveling, you may notice an apparition following you around. You may also notice that he won't let you enter the catfish's mouth. So it seems that your first task is to put this wandering spirit to rest. If you wander around enough, he'll mention the House by the Bay. He wants to visit his house once more before passing on. So, take him there! Go east from the Toronbo Shores to find the house, then take him inside. Now he'll ask you to take him back to his grave. It's not in the graveyard to the east of the Witch's hut; it's the single tombstone to the west of the Witch's hut. You'll have to go south one screen then take the other north path to reach it. That settled, you're ready to go to the next dungeon. It's a good idea to get the bow and arrow at this point in the game. You don't need it to finish the next dungeon, but you'll need it eventually, and there's some bonuses to get if you have it for this one. Most of the water around the Animal Village leads into the bay. If you swim around, you'll find the catfish, surrounded by a ring of stones. To reach the catfish itself, you'll have to go through that little channel on the left, go to the right-most edge, and press B to dive. Move Link through the little passage below the rock, and then back up to the surface. Swim over to the catfish and climb in its mouth. . . if you dare. j) Level 5--Catfish's Maw 11- 3 O 10- 9 | | 25 14 8 - 18 | | | A - 24- O - B 13 15- 16 | | O - O - 7 | 23- O 5 - 6 | | 21- 20- 22 4 | | 19- 18- O | 2 - 1 - 12- E Note: The annoying pink enemies with the shield in front can only be attacked from behind with the sword. Once you get the hook shot, you can use it to attack them from any direction. Link's Objectives: 1) Defeat all the enemies to open the west door. 2) Get the compass. Take the passage to 3. You'll have to jump from weight to weight with care, since the one you're standing on will go down and another one will go up. Defeat all the enemies to open the door. 3) Push the two top blocks toward each other to make a small key appear. 4) Defeat all of the enemies to make the north door open. 5) You're going to see a lot of this guy. Hit him in the head with your sword. When he crumbles to the ground, immediately put a bomb on his head. Repeat until he gives up. 6) The Skull Master has stolen the hook shot! Don't worry, I'll help you find it. You have to make it to each room where the Skull Master hides, in order, and defeat him. 7) This is the second Skull Master encounter. In the room to the west, go west, return to the east, go north, return to the south, press the button, and go east to this room. 8) Use the east entrance to get to this room. Find all of the slimes and defeat them to open the north door. You'll have to push some blocks to reach the southern part of the room. 9) Skull Master 3 10) Get the map. Defeat all of the skeletons to return to the east. 11) Skull Master 4. Defeat him this time, and he'll cough up the hook shot. 12) Use the hook shot to reach this chest, with 200 rupees inside! 13) Dive into the middle of this patch of deep water to enter a passage to 14. 14) Use the hook shot on the strange-looking thing to create a bridge. In the chest is the Nightmare Key. 15) Use the hook shot to reach this treasure chest with 50 rupees. 16) Use the hook shot to get this small key. 17) Use the hook shot to make a bridge to the chest for 50 rupees. 18) Defeat the enemies to open the doors. 19) Defeat the enemies to get the stone beak. 20) Use the hook shot to easily cross this gauntlet of traps. 21) Use the hook shot to reach this chest, which has a small key inside. At this point, you have two ways to go. If you have the bow and arrow, you can go to 22. If you don't, take the passage from 6 to A. 22) Use the hook shot to pull the bridge across. 23) The mini-boss. Shoot arrows into the spiders' eyes when they open. Avoid the spiders when they lunge. When you enter the passage to the east, use the hook shot on the strange statues coming out of the walls to pull yourself up. It leads to B. 24) Defeat the enemies to open the doors. 25) The boss. There will be four holes in the walls. Stand across from one of the holes, avoid the spiked tail in the center of the room, and when the fish's face appears in the hole across from you, use the hook shot to drag it out. Hit the little heart in its throat as quickly as you can before it disappears. Once in a while, the fish you pull out will be a tail, like the first boss. Defeat it the same way, by hitting the end of his tail. 26) Get the Wind Marimba. k) The Horrible Secret If you haven't already, you *must* buy the bow and arrow now. If you've been careful about spending your rupees, you should have just about enough for it now. If not, look around for some caves; many of these have treasure chests full of rupees just waiting to be plundered. Also, revisit the dungeons and make sure you've got all the treasures. If you're still strapped for cash, go to the screen in Mabe village that's full of grass and start hacking away! If you're really desparate, you might want to consider getting it by five-finger discount. . . Now might also be a good time to finish up the trading sequence, just so it's out of the way. You should also start rounding up those pieces of heart. Your next task is to explore an ancient ruin. It's waited a few centuries for you to arrive; it can wait until you finish up a few side quests. Now that you're ready, it's time to tackle the Face Shrines. There are two of them; the southern Shrine is your first task. To reach it, start at the entrance to Animal Village and go north. Follow the shore as it bends to the east, then look for the first opening to the south. This will put you in the simple maze that leads to the southern Shrine. Along the way, some of the statues may come to life if you touch them. If this happens, an arrow will destroy it. You can find out which statues are "alive" and which aren't by holding up your shield in front of you and touching the statue in question. If nothing unusual happens, it won't come to life. If it bounces off you (it won't come to life if you do it this way), it's a trap. These living statues will often block your path, but it's best to get them out of your way by bouncing them away with your shield before they come to life; that way, you can save your arrows for the battle in the Shrine. It's not a particularly long dungeon; in fact, the second room you come to is the home of the boss. Shoot two arrows at it, then hesitate until it lands on the ground again. If you don't pause, he'll be in the air when you fire, and you'll be out a perfectly good arrow. Repeat until he's done, and be amazed at how simple it was. This next part is optional, but it's rather important to the story. Just go into the next room, light the torches, and look at the picture on the wall (go up to it and press A). Yes, this is the chilling secret of Koholint Island. . . it's all just a dream. When the dreamer awakes, it will vanish. And aren't you on a quest to wake that dreamer? Who is that owl really, and why is he leading you on like this to wake the Wind Fish? Are you going to bring about the destruction of Koholint? Well, you bought the game, and darned if you're not going to finish the last three levels, no matter what the consequences. Make your way back through the maze and head back toward Animal Village, taking note of the island with the statue guy on it. When you find a gap in the "railing", jump into the river and swim back to that island. You'll have to bring the statue to life and then destroy it to reach the staircase it's standing on. Follow the short passageway, put your face key into the keyhole, and make the northern Shrine rise up from the ground. Enter. . . if you dare. . . l) Level 6--Face Shrine 14 29 | | 13 -12 15 37 32 O | | | | | | 11 -10 -27 -26 36 24 21 28 | | | | | | | 9 - 4 - 5 25 35 23 31 -30 | | | | | 3 - 8 33 -34 22 O | | | 7 2 18 -19 | | | | 6 1 - E -16 -17 20 Link's Objectives: 1) These enemies are the Wizrobes (from the original Zelda game, no less). The easiest way I've found to defeat them is to place a bomb somewhere near them *just* as their hat vanishes. If you place a bomb right in the middle of this trio, you should get them in one shot. 2) Collect 50 rupees from this chest. 3) Place a bomb next to this switch, then quickly stand on the upper-right hand corner block before the bomb blows, the switch is hit, and the block goes up. Why'd you go through all that? You'll see in a minute. For now, continue to room 4. 4) Bomb the east wall here. When you return later, you can lift the pot in the upper-left corner to find the button that opens the door. 5) Destroy all the slimes in this room to make a secret passage appear. 6) Ah, you get it now? Defeat the enemies in this room to proceed north. 7) Get the more powerful power bracelet. 8) Get 100 rupees from this treasure chest. 9) Defeat the wizrobes to get the dungeon map. You'll have to do the trick with the bomb again in room 3, only this time, stand on the left-hand block. 10) Get the stone beak, if you really want to. Later, take the passage to 28. 11) Destroy the door with one of the pots. 12) Get the compass. Be sure to get the free bombs! They'll reset when you return after taking the upstairs exit in room 14. Hit the switch to make the door in room 13 accessable. 13) Destroy the door using one of the elephant statues. 14) Get 100 rupees from this chest. Take the stairs to find a secret seashell. Pick up the chess pieces and throw them. If they both land in the correct standing position, you get to proceed, hooray! 15) Defeat the wizrobes in this room to get a small key. If the blocks get in the way, backtrack to the switch and hit it. 16) Throw the statues out of your way. 17) The floor is attacking! Stand in one corner and hold up your shield until the onslaught is over. 18) Throw a statue at the non-locked door to open it. 19) Defeat all of the wizrobes to open the doors. The chest can only be gotten to from the room to the south. 20) Okay, here's how to reach that chest. Enter the room when the blocks are set up such that you can reach the stairs on the left. Climb them, and jump down onto the switch controlled block below. Walk onto the one right next to it, then use the Roc's Feather to jump to the third switch controlled block. Climb the stairs, jump over the trap, and claim your reward: The secret medicine. 21) Get the small key from this chest. 22) Bomb the north wall to reveal the passage. 23) The mini-boss. When it throws its ball at you, pick it up and throw it back with the intention of hitting it. 24) Things get a bit. . . odd at this point. If you go north, you'll find yourself back in room 22. What you want to do, instead, is pick up the left statue to reveal a secret passage. Then, uh, follow it, I guess. 25) The room is attacking again, only this time it's leaving behind gaping holes! Get in the bottom-left corner as quickly as you can and hold up your shield until it's over. You'll get a small key for your trouble. 26) Throw the statue at the door to open it. 27) Again, throw the horseys around until they let you out. 28) Here's a neat trick -- play "The Ballad of the Wind Fish" for the Pol's voices here. Heh heh. . . 29) Get 200 rupees from this chest, then throw the chess knights around until the door opens. (Annoyed yet?) 30) You remember these guys. Beat them the same way as you did in Level 3. 31) Use the hookshot to reach the other side. 32) The nightmare key is in this chest, but it won't open! That's right; you've got to throw a pot at it. See, in the dungeons where you get the power bracelets, they like to make you throw things around. I dunno. 33) Avoid getting sucked in by the suctiony thing. You have to walk around the hole in the room and make all of the slimes come out of the ground. You also have to defeat them, but chances are they'll just get sucked into the hole in the room, if left on their own. 34) You have to defeat this lone wizrobe without letting the evil eye see you too often, lest it zap you to oblivion. I suggest pushing the upper block into the pit, leaping across the pit, quickly laying a bomb, then quickly jumping back. Of course, you have to time this with its appearances. Finally, push the other blocks out of your way and get going. 35) Light these torches to turn the evil zappy things into fairies for a last-minute life boost before the boss. 36) The boss! Uh. . . oh no, there's an evil face hovering in the room! First it'll throw those tiles at you, then the pots. When it's used up all the furniture, it'll make random holes pop up, which are actually pretty easy to avoid. Actually, everything about this boss is pretty easy. All you have to do is lay a bomb on top of the face when it's smiling broadly. You don't even have to aim or anything! But take heed of its words. . . 37) Get the Coral Triangle. m) Raising the Dead Two instruments to go and, as you might imagine, those nightmares have pulled out all the stops to make the last two dungeons the hardest yet. In fact, just getting into Dungeon #7 may be a bit taxing, since you have to fly like a bird to get the key. Let's take this one step at a time. The first thing you need to do is learn a new song for your ocarina. Make sure you have 300 rupees saved up, and go to the signpost maze (due south of the eastern exit of Mabe Village). There's a large gap that you have to dash-and-jump over. Read the first signpost you come to. It'll give you a direction to go in, relative to the sign (not to where you're standing when you read the sign). Travel straight in that direction until you reach the next sign. Read it. If it gives you another direction, you're on the right track. If it doesn't, you have to go back to the first sign and start over. It's actually pretty easy to understand, but hard to explain. Experiment a bit. Once you've visited every signpost in the maze, a staircase will open up, which will take you to the lair/studio of Mamu (who looks suspiciously like Wart). For 300 rupees, he'll jam with you for a while and teach you the somewhat unlistenable Song of Soul, which can raise the dead. Know anyone who needs to be brought back from the dead? I'll give you a hint: it's not the ghost that followed you around earlier. The statue in Mabe Village has the caption "Here sleeps the flying rooster." Hmmm. . . a flying rooster could really come in handy. . . So, push the statue out of the way (from below) and enter his resting place. Find him and play the song for him. Yay! You have a flying rooster! Pick him up with the power bracelet and fly around and stuff! It's fun! When you've gotten that out of your system, take the opportunity to find some more secret seashells. You're in a position to get every shell you need to get the Level 2 sword; check the Seashell section below for details. Finally, it's time to start exploring the mountains. Return to the spot in the mountains where there used to be a waterfall (you leapt from that spot to reach Level 4) and go east. Climb the stairs and follow the obvious path until you reach a cave with a house nearby. The house isn't really important, unless you have a thing for chickens. Enter the cave. In the second room, you have to take the north exit. You might wonder how to accomplish such a task, if you didn't have a flying rooster. Use him to fly over the gaps in this room and the next one. The Bird Key lies in plain sight in the fourth room. Then, just go back the way you came. Now that you've got the key, you're ready to unlock the dungeon. Return to the spot where you leapt from to reach level 4 and this time head due east. You'll reach a cave; this is actually the first in a series of caves that you'll have to traverse. You'll go in a cave and come out in a place pretty close to the next cave. There's nothing really hard about these caves if you know how to use your various equipment. This path will eventually lead you to Eagle's Tower. Stick the key in the boulder with the keyhole, and you're in business. n) Level 7--Eagle's Tower O - O - O - O 6 O O - O | | | | | | O - 5 - 4 - O 10 - 8 - 3 - 2 O -19 O 17 | | | | | | | | | | | | 9 - O - O - O O - O 7 -13 O -18 -20 -16 | | | | | | | | | O - E - O - 1 11 -12 -15 -14 O - O First floor Second floor Third floor Note: This is how the map will look eventually. When you get the map item, it may show you a different picture for the third and fourth floors. Don't worry about it; by the time we absolutely have to go to the third floor, it'll appear as pictured here, and the fourth floor won't even exist. 1) Defeat all of the enemies in this room to get a small key. Use it to unlock the door. The stairs lead up. 2) Pull on the thing on the right side of the room to make the blocks separate. The ball here is an important part of beating the level; if you ever lose it, it'll automatically end up back here, so keep this place in mind. 3) Throw the ball at the pillar in the middle of the room to destroy it. Throw the ball across to the other side of the switch-operated blocks. Leap into the right-most side of the pit in this room. 4) You should land on the switch blocks that are in the up position. Use the Roc's Feather to leap onto the switch blocks on the left side of the room. 5) Walk across the switch blocks then jump onto the ones that lead to the north (on the right). Take the stairs there up. 6) I hate these things! When you hit them, their "suit" stops changing. If you can get them all to stop on the same suit, they'll be defeated. Defeat them to get the compass. Walk around to room 3 and get the ball again. 7) Use the ball to destroy the pillar. Hit the switch in the room to the south, then pick up the ball and continue. 8) Use the entrance on the left to reach this room from room 6. Throw the ball across the "handrail" thing so that you can reach the ball when you enter from the west later. Use the stairs in room 6, then follow the path to the west until you reach. . . 9) Take the stairs. 10) Use your shield to block the flying tiles. In the next room, pick up the ball and destroy the pillar. Bomb the space on the south wall that's right between the torches. Get to the end of the short hall the space leads to and bomb that spot too. Pick up the ball and carry it to the room south of room 7 (the one with the switch). Throw the ball onto the other side of the "handrail". Return to room 9 and take the stairs. 11) The mini-boss of level 2 rears his ugly head again. Defeat him to get a small key. 12) Defeat these guys again. Get the ball from the room to the east and bring it back here. Throw it across the gap in the middle of the room. Go back around to room 8 and follow the narrow hall that you bombed your way through. Use the hookshot to go to the chest that appeared and take the single bomb inside. Pick up the ball and throw it at the pillar in the room to the north. Jump down the pit and make your way back to the east and up the stairs from the beginning. 13) The blocks should be down, so get the mirror shield from the chest. 14) Unlock the block, climb the stairs, and go to the room to the west. 15) Hit the switch (with an arrow or something) before going up these stairs. 16) The mini-boss. A formation of flying things will line up, then attack. You have to defeat them all with your sword; if one of them escapes off the edge of the screen, you have to face another formation. 17) Push the blocks toward each other to make the Nightmare Key appear. 18) Use the Nightmare Key to reach the next room. 19) Use the hookshot to get onto the upper platform in this room. 20) Up these stairs to the boss. Use your shield and a weapon. The bird will fly by, and you have to hit it. Since this is a side-view room, a long-range weapon will be useful for when it's out of your reach. However, you'll have to practice a bit with the arrows or the hookshot. Besides, it'll be in sword's reach often enough for you to beat it. Sometimes it'll start flapping its wings and blowing you away. Hold up your shield to deflect its fire and concentrate on not getting knocked off the tower. (The Pegasus Boots take too long to be effective, so don't bother with them.) If you get knocked off, the boss's energy will be restored and you'll have to start all over. Don't do that. 21) Get the Organ of Evening Calm. o) The Road to Turtle Rock Just one dungeon to go. There's no wacky side-quests to open up Turtle Rock; all you have to do is brave the perils of the western mountains. Still, there's a few things you might want to get done first. The boomerang is indispensible for Turtle Rock, so if you haven't gotten it already, do so. Complete the trading sequence (if you haven't already) and go to the shore. Two screens to the east of where you found your sword you'll see a bunch of cracked rocks. Bomb this place and go inside. The room would seem empty if you didn't have the magnifying glass. The guy here will offer to trade the boomerang for whatever you put in your B button (though he won't accept some of the more important items). It's best to trade your shovel; it's mostly just good for finding seashells and the occasional dungeon key. However, should you need your shovel back, feel free to return and trade back. Stock up on bombs and arrows, make sure you've got some secret medicine, muster up some courage, and let's go. Start by returning to the cave where you got the Bird Key. Climb the stairs and head west. Use the hook shot to cross the bridges, saving Marin along the way. Cut down the bush to reveal the passage to the western mountains. The going is pretty straightforward at this point. There's a chasm to cross with the hookshot, falling rocks to block with your shield; you should know how to deal with these obstacles by now. Be sure to pick up the boulder in the screen with the tresure chest; there's a secret passage. Sprinkle dust on the well inside to receive a reward. You'll eventually come to a cave with a flamethrower; just hold up your Mirror Shield and walk into it. Eventually you'll reach Turtle Rock. There's no obvious way to get in, unless you've been paying attention to the clues. The last instrument mentioned the Ocarina after you got it. . . Mamu said his song could liven up unliving things. . . so play song #3 for Turtle Rock. Yipes! It'll come to life and attack you! Get your sword swingin' and attack back. The tip of the nose seems to be the most vulnerable spot. Walk down the turtle's former neck hole and enjoy the last true dungeon of the game. p) Level 8--Turtle Rock 36 O | | 34 35 O 30 | | | | 33 -32 -20 - O - O -21 -19 29 | | 23 -22 28 -27 -26 -18 | | | 31 O -10 -16 - O -17 | | | 7 4 - 3 15 - 9 -24 -25 O | | | | | | | 6 - 5 2 - 1 -14 - O -13 -12 | | | | 8 E O 11 1) Defeat the creature to open the doors. Your best chance is with the boomerang. If you throw the boomerang just as you enter the room, you'll usually get it. 2) Defeat the snakes to open the door. 3) This clown again. Defeat him to open the door. 4) Notice the block. If you push it, it'll start rolling straight forward. As long as it's gliding across a hole in the floor, it'll keep filling in space. You can use the control pad to guide it. This object appears in many rooms; your goal is often to fill in all the space with it. Refer to the diagrams below for how the block should go in each room. This room will get you 20 rupees. 5) You know those flashy things you couldn't defeat before? Use the boomerang to defeat them and get a nice fairy to boot. Fun! Also get 50 rupees from this chest. 6) The level 1 mini-boss is back and easier than ever. 7) Defeat the demon of this room to get a small key. 8) Avoid getting sucked into this device, but be sure to get the compass from this chest. 9) There's no way to fill in all this lava; just use the block to reach one of the shores. 10) Take this passage. In the first screen, wait for the fireball to jump in front of you, then jump to the next spot. In the second screen, grab onto a ladder, then move to the safe ladder between the fireballs when the fireballs are down. Wait for them to jump again before moving on. End up in room 11. 11) Get the stone beak from this chest. 12) You'll be reliving a *lot* of minibosses in this level. Beat the ball creature to open the doors. 13) Fill in the space to get a small key. 14) Find a button under a pot to make the doors open. If you really want to. 15) Return to room 10 and bomb the cracked-looking part of the south wall to reach the business area of this room. The three-block wall stands in your way of the chest. Push the top and bottom blocks to the left and push the middle block down to clear them away. Get the map. The third block from the right can be pushed into the lava. Jump across the lava to escape from the upper part of the room. 16) Use the moving block from room 9 in such a way that you go down the narrow hall that leads to this locked block. Unlock it. 17) The staircase here leads to a bonus area with equipment and hearts. Use the hookshot to cross the first lava pit. 18) Defeat all the slimes in this room. Bomb the western wall to open up a passage, but don't go down it yet; you've got some other business to attend to. 19) Defeat these mummies quickly and carefully to get a small key. You don't have to defeat the enemies in the room to the west just yet, but you may find it difficult to proceed without doing it. 20) Reach this room by going straight west from 19. Reach the chest with the hookshot from the ledge (go west to reach the ledge). It contains 50 rupees. Go up the stairs and go outside. (Be sure to get the piece of heart that's sitting in plain sight.) Proceed past the warp hole (or use it to pop back to Mabe for some refreshments!) and re-enter the dungeon at the next opening. It'll be room 21, conveniently enough. 21) Throw bombs from the balcony into the waiting mouths of these monsters. It'll take a lot of bombs and a lot of patience. It's easier in the narrow path to the east, but how are you supposed to lure them there? When you finally finish, a key will appear in easy reach. 22) Shoot the statue with an arrow to make a key appear. 23) Push the blocks out of the way and get the key in the chest, but watch out for the eye! Continuing south will help you fight your way back to room 9, your next destination. 24) Use the block in room 9 to reach this room. Bomb the east wall. 25) This is the only crystal switch in the dungeon. You'll need to hit it exactly once, then make sure you don't leave the dungeon or anything. Also, if you continue your game, make sure the first thing you do is come back and hit the switch. 26) Light up this room. Use your key to reach the next room. 27) Defeat the snake to reach the next room. When you return from the next room, use the hookshot to reach the island where the staircase and locked block are. Unlock the block and take the staircase to room 30. 28) Again, light up the room if you need to and proceed back to room 27. 29) All this work and you've only reached the *mini* boss. This is the toughest mini in the game (of course). His frontal defense is impenetrable, and he doesn't give you much of a chance to get above or below him (the only spots where he's vulnerable). If you stay in front of him too long, he'll wind up and give you a HUGE punch that sends you all the way back to the beginning of the dungeon! Expect a lot of pain and frustration. Focus on getting above or below him when he's just sitting there throwing punches. Bring a piece of power or (better yet) the red clothes when fighting this guy. Patience and practice; that's all you can do to beat this guy. 30) If the blocks are down (return to room 25 if they're not), you can now get the fire rod. This is an outstanding accomplishment. Everything's going to just fall into place now. Pat yourself on the back. Save your game now; no sense taking risks. Take a break. Have a sandwich. You've earned it. 31) All right, you're back and ready to finish this dungeon. Use your newly acquired fire rod to light these torches. A small key will appear. Return to room 9. Go up the staircase. Use the fire rod to destroy the ice blocks in the first room. Jump and quickly use the fire rod to destroy only the top row of ice blocks in the second room. Jump on the bottom row, then jump from the bottom row to where the stairs are. End up in room 32. 32) Unlock the door. 33) Another mini-boss revisited. Only problem is, this guy actually *is* harder because of the gaps along the edge of the room. I usually just sit with him in the corner and keep swinging my sword. Sure, you'll take some hits, but it'll work, and the fairy will probably revive you pretty well. 34) Another fill-in-the-gap puzzle. Get the Nightmare Key. Return to room 24. Go up the staircase. Use the fire rod (jump when you have to) to clear out the top row of ice. Clear the first column of ice from the left by standing on it and using the fire rod straight down. Return to the top and this time as you fall, clear out the block of ice blocking the exit. Go back around once more and this time fall into the tunnel that leads to the exit. In the next screen, go down the ladder and clear out the bottom row of ice. Stand under the second column from the right and blast straight up. Climb onto the ice and use it as a staircase to reach the ladder down. It'll take you right in front of the Nightmare's Lair. 35) The Boss at last. Considering all of the aggravation of the rest of the dungeon, this is over pretty quickly. Just stand at one end of the room and use the fire rod to blast the boss whenever he's in front of you. Enough hits and he'll reveal his squirming center. Blast him more and he's history. 36) Get the Thunder Drum. Block pushing diagrams ^ Up v Down < Left > Right Room 4: v < v ^ v ^ < < < v v v Room 13: v < < > v ^ < > v ^ < > v ^ < > v ^ < > > > > Room 34: > > v > > v ^ > ^ v ^ v < v < v v ^ < ^ < > > > > > > q) End Game Yes, the time has come to wake the Wind Fish. But, even at this stage in the game, there's things to consider. Did you max out your capacity to carry powder, arrows, and bombs? The tricks and treats section tells you where to find one of the magic bats who grants you extra storage space. The Road to Turtle Rock contains another. There's a third that you can only get now that you have the fire rod. Go due east from the House by the Bay until you reach a field of holes and bushes. Burn the bushes with the rod, then jump across the holes. The staircase will take you to a place where you can reach the staircase where the bat lives. Magic powder and bombs aren't as important anymore, but make sure you max out your arrows; arrows are one of the most important items to beat the upcoming boss. Now, go to the library and read the book of dark secrets. It'll give you a series of arrows. Copy these down. The sequence varies from game to game, ensuring that you'll need to read this book. And, since you need the magnifying glass to read this book, it also ensures that you'll complete the trading sequence. I've sometimes noticed that the sequence changes if you save a game and continue later, so try not to stop between now and the time you reach the egg. Stock up, then head to the Wind Fish's Egg. (It's just to the west of the staircase you've always used to reach the mountains.) If you have headphones, plug them in now. Play Marin's song, "The Ballad of the Wind Fish", in front of the egg. The egg cracks. . . you enter. . . The first rooms are dark; nothing to help that. You'll fall into a hole in the second room; nothing to help that either. You'll land in a room, and no matter what direction you go in, it'll be the same room. This is where your sequence of arrows becomes useful. Follow the directions given. If it worked, your last move will take you to a room with a hole. If it didn't, try going back and reading the book again. To leave the egg, simply go south at any time. Okay, it worked and you're at the hole. Jump in. This is it: the final battle. Here you'll find out what's *really* going on with this island and really wake the Wind Fish. The monster here takes on several forms: Form 1: Jelly Sprinkle magic dust on him. Form 2: Wizard He'll form a ball of power with his hands. Swing your sword at the red balls to deflect them back into his face. Make sure you're directly in line, otherwise they'll miss. Form 3: Tail Hit the ball on the end of his tail. Form 4: Ganon Use the spinning blade technique to hit him; nothing else works. Form 5: ???? Hit it once with an arrow Final Form All that other stuff was a warmup. Really. The boss is a central hub with spiked arms revolving around it. Put the Roc's feather on one button and the bow and arrow on the other. Stay right underneath the hub and try to face it at all times. Jump whenever the arms come (you might have to jump to the right over one arm then immediately to the left over the other). It takes practice to do this well. Fire an arrow into the hub whenever the eye opens. You defeat the monster. . . a staircase appears. . . you climb it. . . ======================================================================= 7. Questions & Answers I've gotten *tons* of e-mail from readers asking questions about the game. I've answered as many as I could, but there were questions that were asked quite frequently or that I couldn't answer because the game wasn't in front of me at the time. So, I've decided to start up a Q&A section of this guide. Some suggestions if you want to send me a question: - Don't ask for a walkthrough (i.e. "How do you beat level 8?"). Solutions for all levels and other important sections will appear in this guide eventually. (But feel free to tell me that it's about time I put out the next version! :) - Be specific. Don't say "I'm having problems with Level 5 please help!". Tell me if there's something in the walkthrough that isn't specific enough or if I left something out. - Don't send me e-mail in all-caps or with giant fonts or underlined or in weird colors. Those frighten me. - Please put "Zelda" somewhere in the title of your message. Otherwise, I might miss it. Again, my e-mail address is email@example.com. And now, Q&A: Q: I'm missing a key in Level 3 (Key Cavern). Where is it? A: There's a *lot* of keys in Level 3. It's hard to say which key you're missing without having your game in front of me, but I suggest you start in room A and visit any room that is unlocked to the north, west, or south. Defeating all of the enemies in these rooms will give you a key. Be sure to walk around and defeat all of the slimes hiding in the floor. If that fails, remember that the compass will emit a tone just as you enter a room that's hiding a key. Go around to all of the rooms in the walkthrough that mention a key and see if you've cleaned them out yet. Be patient; there's *more* than enough keys in that dungeon, and I have yet to find a no-win situation. Q: How do I reach the statue of the mermaid? A: Start just west of the Animal Village. Go south as far as you can, then west. Use the hookshot (from level 5) to reach the other side of the gap. The statue is nearby. Q: How do I reach Level 2? A: Start at the chest where you found the Tail Key. Go west, north, east, east to reach the swamp. Let Bow Wow eat all the flowers that get in your way. If you want to return later in the game, the fire rod will burn up the flowers for you. Q: Is there a special ending if you beat the game without dying? A: Yes. Yes there is. If you're playing with the DX version and the Game Boy Color, the special ending is slightly better (JMHO) than the special ending for the original version or for the DX version on a non-GBC (which is the same as the original version). Q: What's the difference between Link's Awakening and Link's Awakening DX? A: The DX stands for Deluxe. Basically, the game is (very nicely) enhanced to make full use of the Game Boy Color's color palettes. There's also a new dungeon hidden somewhere in the game as well as printer compatibility so that you can print out some special pictures that are hidden in the game. You can play the DX version on any Game Boy system and take advantage of any of its features except color and the color dungeon. Q: What is the warp code? A: The "warp code" is a glitch from the original version. Since it's a glitch, it was removed from the new DX version. It's useful for getting past certain obstacles and causing havoc with your game. Use it at your own risk: As you move from one screen to the next, press select to bring up the map. When you return to the game, you'll be in the next screen, but you'll be on the opposite side that you'd expect. I cannot assure you that this will not mess up your game, so use at your own risk. ======================================================================= 6. Level 0--The Color Dungeon Yes, there's an extra dungeon hidden somewhere in Zelda DX. It's not too hard to find if you put your mind to it, and you can enter it pretty much as soon as you find the power bracelet. You can only enter it if you're playing on the Game Boy Color; if you're playing on any other Game Boy system, you'll be stopped at the front door. The dungeon is entirely optional; you don't need to find it to finish the game. However, there's two items of interest deep within the dungeon that you might want to spend the time to get. So, here's how to find it. Go to the library. You'll notice a book up on the top shelf which you can't reach. It wasn't there in the first version, so that should be your first clue. Knock it off the top shelf by dashing into the bookshelf with the Pegasus Boots. It'll speak of a "lost world of color" in the graveyard and present you with a pattern of numbers and arrows. Copy them down somewhere. Your next stop should be the graveyard, just east of the witch's hut where you got the magic powder. Look around for the screen where the pattern of the tombstones matches the pattern that you copied down. Touching a tombstone makes a ghost appear, so you should take care of those first. Then, push the tombstone marked 1 in the direction indicated, followed by the tombstone marked 2, etc. Congratulations! You've found the color dungeon. 17- O 11- 10 | | O - O 14- 15 8 - 9 | | | 16- 13- 12 O | | 2 - 5 - O - 4 | | | E/1 3 7 - 6 1) Speak to the Guardians and tell them what color shirt they're wearing. I guess I don't understand the point of this "challenge". 2) The little things on the floor are ghosts which will jump out at you when you approach them. You can generally defeat them with your sword, but once in a while you won't be able to defeat them for one reason or another. Why? Who knows. Try a bomb; that sometimes works. I really hate this room, and you'll find a bunch of them as you progress. Anyway, when they're defeated, the door will open. 3) Bomb the south wall of the room to the north to reach this treasure-filled room. Each rupee you find here is worth five rupees, so stock up! 4) Use your sword to knock these strange creatures unconcious, then use the power bracelet to pick them up and insert them in the color-coordinated holes. Get the stone beak. 5) Thanks to the owl's clue, you can solve this puzzle. Hit the switch in the upper-left, then the lower-right, and they'll all turn blue. Get the compass. 6) Another floor-ghost room. Fortunately, you can lure the ghosts into the pit in the middle of the room if you're having bad luck with the conventional methods. 7) Get this small key and then get back across the colored tiles before the bouncing characters turn them all into pits. 8) This puzzle again. Hit the lower-right switch once and the upper-left switch twice to get a small key. 9) Another floor-ghost room. Sick of them yet? 10) One of the mini-bosses (there's two of them). Use your magic powder on him, then avoid him as he bounces around. Also watch out for the occasional lightning bolt. This guy's a push-over. 11) Finish an incredibly simple block-pushing puzzle and claim the Nightmare key. 12) The other mini-boss. Whack him with your sword, avoid the spikes in the room, and use your shield to avoid the rocks that tumble across the room after you hit him. He moves too slow to be a direct threat. 13) Find a button under the upper-left pot to open the doors. 14) Defeat all of the slimes in this room to get the map. 15) These creatures again. Get another small key. 16) Hit the switches on the "edges" (not the corners or the center) in any order to proceed. 17) The boss. Whack his bubble head as quickly as you can while avoiding his attacks and the skeletons that eventually appear. Fairly easy, compared to the other bosses in the game. 18) Your reward: Talk to the Fairy Queen and pick your choice of clothes: red or blue. The red clothes will give you offense power, which is like permanently having the effects of a "Piece of Power" item. The blue clothes will give you defense power, which is like permanently having the effects of a magic acorn. Pick whichever you like. If you're unhappy with your choice, you can always return to pick up the other set. Conveniently enough, you can use the benefits of the colored clothes even when you're playing on an older Game Boy system. To see which set you're wearing, press select on the item menu. The letter indicates the color you're wearing. Unfortunately, you can't enter the color dungeon and get a new set on the old Game Boys. ======================================================================= 7. The Ocarina and its 3 Songs You get the ocarina in the old house in northeast Mabe Village. To get it, you need the boots and the bracelet. Pull up the rocks around the door, enter, and hop into the bed. Make your way around the room and crash through the blocks when you need to. You'll eventually get the ocarina from a chest. Here are the three songs, who to get them from, and what playing them will do: Ballad of the Wind Fish - Get it by talking to Marin in Mabe Village. If you play it in front of the Wind Fish's egg with all eight instruments, you can go into the Wind Fish's egg. This song can also be used to kill the hopping bunnies. Manbo's Mambo - Gotten by swimming to the cave just east of the Angler's dungeon. Play it outside to warp to the pool outside Crazy Tracy's house, or play it in a dungeon to go back to the start. Mamu's Song - Complete the signpost maze to meet Mamu. He'll teach you his song, which can be used to bring the rooster back to life under that weathervane. It's also used to bring the entrance guardian at Turtle Rock to life. ======================================================================== 8. Link's Trading Sequence You MUST carry out this trading sequence to get the magnifying glass to read the book at the library. 1. THE YOSHI DOLL - Win it at the Trendy Game in Mabe Village. 2. THE HAIR BOW - Trade the doll for it to the mother in Northern Mabe. 3. DOG FOOD - Give the bow to the little bowwow next to Madame Meow- meow's house and she'll give you the dog food. 4. BANANAS - Go to the alligator's hut on the beach that is south of Mabe Village. Trade the dog food for Bananas. 5. A STICK - Give the bananas to the monkey outside of Kanalet Castle. One of his friends will leave behind the stick when they leave. 6. THE HONEYCOMB - Find Tarin on Ukuku Prarie and give the stick to him. What happens next is funny (You'll see) and after the whole thing you get a honeycomb. 7. THE PINEAPPLE - The chef in Animal Village will ask for the honeycomb and will give you a pineapple in return. 8. THE HIBISCUS - Find the guy (I think his name is Papahl) in TalTal heights and give him the pineapple. He'll let you have his hibiscus in return for your kindness. 9. THE LETTER - Take the hibiscus to the lady goat in animal village and she will ask you to deliver a letter to Mr. Write. 10. THE BROOM - Give the letter to Mr. Write (he's North of the forest) and he will give you a broom in return. 11. THE FISHING HOOK - Go back to animal village (again!) and give the broom to the old lady there. She'll fork over a fishing hook. * NOTE FROM CPFACE * Every single time I have played this game, I found the old lady in Animal Village, just north of the house where you get the pineapple from the bear. I know that she's originally outside of Old Man Ulrira's house, but for some reason, she gets moved here at some point in the game. Many people have written in, insisting that I change this part of the FAQ and say that she's found in Mabe Village and not the Animal Village. I don't see why I should, since I've never found her there! However, so very many people have written in that I think it's worth mentioning that she might be in Mabe Village or the Animal Village, based on conditions in the game that I don't want to worry about. Check in front of Ulrira's house; if she's not there, she's in the Animal Village. 12. THE NECKLACE - In Martha's Bay there's a bridge that, if you dive under it, you'll meet a man fishing. Find this man, and give him the hook. He'll go fishing, and "catch" the necklace, and give it to you. 13. THE MERMAID'S SCALE - Take the necklace straight over to the mermaid (in Martha's Bay also) and she'll let you take a scale off her tail. 14. THE MAGNIFYING GLASS (finally!) - Put the scale on the mermaid statue overlooking the waters of Martha's Bay and go down the stairs revealed. Go up one screen and get that magnifying glass. NOTE: By now you may have discovered an "empty" room on Torbonto Shores. Well, it's not empty. You can see the man in there only with the magnifying glass. He will trade your shovel for a boomerang. It's a smart trade. ======================================================================== 9. Tricks and Treats This section is for useful and secret stuff that doesn't belong anywhere else and also for things you can do just for fun. Tricks: -- 50 free bombs! You need to first buy ten bombs from the shop. You'll also need a power bracelet and some magic powder. Go to the spot in the Mysterious Forest just to the west of the Fairy fountain and pick up the rock, exposing a secret staircase. Sprinkle some magic powder on the well to make a bat appear. When he asks you if you want to carry more secret powder, say no. When he asks you if you want to carry more bombs, say yes. He'll give you the ability to carry more bombs and give you fifty free bombs to boot! This can only be done once per game, but it's particularly useful right after you finish the second dungeon. -- Beat Level 8 before Level 6 Sent in by Clayton Reynolds Make sure you have the Secret Medicine, the boots, and the feather. Get to the fire breathing cannon and start running into the flames. Your power will decrease quickly, and when you lose it all, Tracy's medicine will kick in. As soon as you lose all of your power for the first time, run into the flames, jump, and push down hard on the top left of the control pad and you should make it through when your life starts to fill up. You can now reach Level 8 and beat it without having to beat levels 6 or 7 (you'll still need the hook shot to beat Level 8). You'll still have to beat levels 6 and 7 to beat the game. Treats: -- Fun things with Marin Marin is quite a character. When you're walking with her, try these fun things: - Attack a chicken - Keep attacking a chicken (she might say something. . . different) - Dig with the shovel - Play the Ocarina for her - Jump into the well west of Mabe village - Check a chest in someone's house - Throw a pot in someone's house - Play the Trendy Game! -- Things to check Go up to various objects in the game and press the A button. Such as: - The phone in Ulrira's house - The picture that the alligator in Animal Village is painting - The trees in front of Seashell Mansion -- Flying troll guy (from Mike Falcek) You have to have the rooster, the shovel on your B button and the Level 2 bracelet on your A button. If you trade the shovel for the boomerang and press the A button, you will pick up the rooster during the text, and you and the weird guy will float up. When you throw down the rooster, the guy will stay in the air. -- Marin the hen (also from Mike Falcek) In the original version, if you skip level 3 using the "press select when you're moving to the next screen trick" to reach level 6, and you get Marin and the rooster at once, Marin will be a hen. ======================================================================== 10. Secret Seashells Below is a grid, representing your map of Koholint. A letter represents a place where a secret seashell can be found. Every letter has an explanation, telling you exactly HOW to get the seashell in question. = = = = = = = = = = = = R = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = Q = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = N = = = = B = = C = = = O = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = F E = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = A = L M = H = = = = = P = = = = = = = = = = G = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = D = = S = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = J = I = = = = = = K A) Cut down the bushes to find the shell. B) There's a shell in this chest. C) Cut down this bush, then dig in the spot where the bush was. D) Check the Tail Cave walkthrough for the exact location. E) Cut down the bushes to find the shell. F)*Take exactly five shells to the house to get a bonus shell. Come back with exactly ten to get another bonus shell. G) Move this rock to find a shell. H) Enter the cave to the south. Go one screen to the west and bomb the niche in the west wall. Follow the cave until you reach the upper exit. Dig around the entire area until you find the shell. I) Cut this bush to get a seashell. J) After returning the ghost to his grave, go to the house at the bay and find a shell under one of the jars. K) Get onto the ledge, two screens to the north. Under one of the rocks is another shell. L) Dig on the patch of land that's surrounded by the four grassy patches. M) Cut down the bush to find a secret shell. N) This shell is accessable from Level 6. Read the Walkthrough, section l, for exactly how to find it. O) Use the flying rooster to cross this gap and collect the seashell. P) Approach this screen from the west. One of the statues is standing on a staircase. Bring it to life, then go down to find a secret seashell. Q) Enter the cave on the west side of the screen. Inside, there's shallow water and one tile of dry floor. Place a bomb on this dry floor and follow until you reach the chest where the seashell hides. R) The shell is hidden under one of these rocks. S) Take the left fork in the caves under Richard's house to find the shell in the chest. Take 20 shells to Seashell Mansion (location F) to get the level 2 sword. Like in the original Legend of Zelda, this sword will let you throw bolts of energy when you're at full power (your hearts are full). Plus, you'll take down some enemies in one stroke that used to take two. The sword isn't nessecary, but it is useful. * Info about first bonus shell is from Michael Evans's FAQ for the original Zelda game. It can be found at www.gamefaqs.com. ======================================================================== 11. Pieces of Heart This is set up in the same format as the secret seashells. I = = = = = = J = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = G = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = A = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = B = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = L = = H = = = = = = = = D = = = = E = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = C = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = K = F = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = A) Pretty simple. Use the roc's feather to jump the pit. B) Enter this tunnel. In the room with the piece of heart, use the power bracelet to move the skulls out of the way and retrieve the piece. C) Cut down the bushes and leap into the well. There's a piece of heart in plain sight. D) Play the fishing game. The big fish that's hugging the wall that you're standing on has a piece of heart in its belly. Catch it to retrieve it. E) Bomb the cracked rocks here to reveal a cave. In the north section of the cave, on the far east wall, there's a bombable spot. Bomb it to reach a room with a piece of heart. F) Enter this cave and go one room west. Bomb the north wall to open a room with another piece of heart. G) Enter this cave. Press B to dive underwater. There's a piece of heart hidden somewhere underwater. H)*Get in the water. You have to swim around from the other end of the moat. Press B to dive underwater; there's a piece of heart underwater. I) See the Turtle Rock walkthrough (section p) for details. J) Enter the cave under this bush. In the first screen, bomb the little niche in the southern wall. Head east to get the piece. K) Bomb the cracked rocks here and enter the cave. In the first room, bomb the north wall. Continue through this new path. Throw a bomb across the little fence to shatter the cracked block. Go back around the other way and use the hook shot to cross the gap and get the heart. L) Go down these stairs. In the second screen, shatter the cracked block. Use the hookshot to reach the small standing space, then jump to the piece of heart. * Info for this piece of heart is from Michael Evans's FAQ for the original Zelda game. It can be found at www.gamefaqs.com. ======================================================================== 12. Photo Ops My favorite part of Zelda DX is the photos. Some of them are humorous, some of them are touching, and some are the kind of touristy pictures that you'd expect someone to take while vacationing on Koholint. It's not a reason to get the game, but it's a nice touch nonetheless. Here's where to find your various photo ops. This takes the same format as the shells and hearts. (Note: The Photo Ops are exclusive to the DX version of the game. However, you can find the pictures no matter which Game Boy format you're using.) = = = = = = = = = = = = = L = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = A = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = K = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = J = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = D G = = = = = = = = = = = = C F = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = E = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = I = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = H = = = = = B = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = A) Link poses at the photo shop. Just talk to the photo guy. You'll have to take this one before the camera man shows up anywhere else. B)*Link and Marin at the cliffs. When Marin's following you, take her to the cliff in this location. Walk out to the edge of the cliff. C)*Marin squashes Link! When Marin's following you, jump into the well. Ouch! That looks pretty painful! D)*Link, Marin, and Tarin in front of the Rooster's tomb. Approach the tomb when Marin's following you. E)*Old Man Ulrira on the phone. Go up to one of his windows and press A to examine it. F) Link "playing" with Bow Wow. Approach the post that Bow Wow is chained to. G)*Thief! Steal something from the shop. Walk around the shopkeeper in circles to confuse him. Go out the door when he's looking up and you'll steal what you're holding plus you'll get this picture. H) Link and the fisherman. Return some time after giving the necklace to the mermaid. I) Link and Zora. Enter the seemingly empty house after you've found the magnifying glass, and watch the magic happen. J)*Link and Richard in front of the castle. Approach the castle gates *before* you've opened them by pressing the button inside. K)*Link and the ghost in front of the ghost's grave. After returning the ghost to its grave, approach the tombstone. L) Link on a bridge. Just go out to a certain point on the bridge. * Information about these pictures were from Sailor Bacon's FAQ for new elements added to Zelda DX. It can be found at www.gamefaqs.com. ======================================================================== 13. What's coming? Who knows? I've finished up everything I can do on my own.
