    Hi all, it's flygon344! This is my first FAQ/Guide, 
    so it might not be perfect, but whatever.
    +----------------------------------------------------+
    |'''''''''''''''Version History [VRS]''''''''''''''''|

    |''''''''''''Take 'Em All On Challenge [TKM]'''''''''|
    +----------------------------------------------------+
    This FAQ/Guide is about the Take 'Em All On Challenge
    (I'll refer to it as TEAOC). It's a pretty fun mini-
    game where you get to fight monsters to win prizes.
    +----------------------------------------------------+
    |'''''''''''''''''How to Start [HTS]'''''''''''''''''|
    +----------------------------------------------------+
    The Minigame is located in Castle Town, so go there if you 
    haven't already. The challenges are unlocked as you go
    through the game. 
    Challenge 1: Unlocks when you beat the Wooded Temple.
    Challenge 2: Unlocks when you beat the Marine Temple.
    Challenge 3: Unlocks when you beat the Sand Temple.
    +----------------------------------------------------+
    |''''''''''''''''Preparations [PRP]''''''''''''''''''|
    +----------------------------------------------------+
    Here's the list:
    Challenge 1: At least 5 hearts and a red potion.
    Challenge 2: At least 8 hearts and a purple potion.
    Challenge 3: At least 14 hearts and a yellow potion.
    (You can complete them with less, but this is what's
    recommended.)
    Also, if you run low on hearts, you can play Song of
    Healing to heal yourself.
    +----------------------------------------------------+
    |'''''''''''''''The Challenge [CHL]''''''''''''''''''|
    +----------------------------------------------------+
    Finally, the real stuff!
    Here I will be writing how many room each challenge
    has, what monsters are in them, how many monsters, and
    the recommended way to kill them.
    
    The room description will look something like this:
    
    Room 0
    Layout: Here's what the room looks like.
    Monsters: Here's which monsters are in the room.
    Strategy: Here's the best/fastest/easiest way to beat the 
    monsters.

    +----------------------------------------------------+
    |''''''''''''''''''''Bosses [BSS]''''''''''''''''''''|
    +----------------------------------------------------+
    Here I will list strategies for all the bosses you 
    will meet in the TEAOC.
    +----------------------------------------------------+
    |'''''''''''''Stagnox, Armoured Beetle'''''''''''''''|
    +----------------------------------------------------+
    Run around him on the outline until he uses 
    the horn attack, then run around him and blow the 
    whirlwind on his backside, then slash him. When he begins
    to fly, he'll shoot out some Blastworms, so slash them, 
    then get behind one of them. When he charges at you, blow
    the spikeball into his face, then slash him in the back.
    Repeat until he is dead.
    +----------------------------------------------------+
    |'''''''''''''''Fraaz, Master of Icy Fire''''''''''''|
    +----------------------------------------------------+
    When he turns to fire, Boomerang the icy
    flame in his face and vice versa. When he splits into 
    two, target the fire one with ice and vice versa.
    Then he'll try to be smart and crush the torches. Now
    wait until he shoots something and it'll be stuck on 
    the floor. Then when he turns to the other element, 
    target the stuff on the floor and target him _twice_
    to stun him, then slash him. He'll split again so wait until
    they attack, and take the elements off of the floor.
    When he joins again, he'll take three hits from the other
    element to get stunned, so it's a bit harder. After six
    more slashes, he'll be dead.
    +----------------------------------------------------+
    |'''''''''''''''Cactops, Barbed Menace'''''''''''''''|
    +----------------------------------------------------+
    First, Whip yourself up until you see a tentacle. 
    Use the Whip to snatch a spike from it and throw it in its
    eye to kill it. Continue, kill another tentacle, avoid the
    goo, and fly up to the boss. When you get up, he'll drop his
    tentacles, so you can only move on 1/4 of the arena.  He'll 
    have purple spots on his head that you need to get rid of.
    Pick the Whip, grab a spike, and throw it on the spots that
    covers the eye. Soon he'll withdraw his head and take up two 
    more tentacles, and try to smash you with them. Just run 
    back and forth to not get throwed off of the platform. When 
    the spots that covers the eye are gone, throw a spike into 
    his eye to stun him, then run over and slash him with your 
    sword. Repeat the process. Then he'll always have four 
    tentacles up, which makes it harder. Avoid the goo, throw
    spikes, avoid tentacles. After 5 more hits with the sword
    he'll go down.
    +----------------------------------------------------+
    |'''''''''''''''''Vulcano, Lava Lord'''''''''''''''''|
    +----------------------------------------------------+
    When you get on the playground, he'll try to smash you with 
    his right fist. When he charges, a gloing spot appears on 
    his belly. Shoot it with your bow, and he'll get really 
    angry and try to double-smash you, so roll out of the way.
    A big boulder will drop down. Stand behind the boulder and
    then run away so he'll smash the boulder, which will 
    become a stepping stone. Carry it and throw it on the 
    small volcanoes to the right, then jump onto the cart
    and go for a ride. Now shoot all the glowing spots with 
    your bow. If he puts his hand at you, shoot at it. If
    you don't, he'll smash you down from the cart. When you
    reach the top level, shoot his eye(it's always the eye 
    isn't it? XD). Then he'll get stunned and you'll ride 
    down to him. Now slash his head with your sword. Repeat 
    until he's killed.
    +----------------------------------------------------+
    |''''''''''''''Capbone, Ancient Demon''''''''''''''''|
    +----------------------------------------------------+
    Capbone will raise from the ground and begin shooting
    boulders at you. Use the Sand Wand to stop the boulder, 
    then push it onto the catapult. Make sure Capbone doesn't
    smash the boulder, then shoot it at him. Now he'll begin to 
    shoot laser at you. The third part has armour on it, the
    opening is on the right side of him. Now he'll begin to 
    shoot three boulders at once. Load a boulder and run to the 
    left, Capbone will always face you. Now that you are on
    the left side, shoot an arrow at the crystal switch to 
    launch it, removing another body part. The next opening 
    is on the back. Load another boulder and run to the 
    other side, a little more, and shoot. The last opening
    is in northwest. Run a third of the arena to the right,
    then shoot. Now his helmet will fall off, revealing a red 
    crystal. By this time, you might want to use the Song of
    Healing to heal yourself if your health gets too low. 
    Use the Sand Wand to surround him, if you don't do it 
    completely he will turn around. Then elevate on the sand 
    and slash at his crystal. After about 6 hits he will 
    go down.
    +----------------------------------------------------+
    |'''''''''''''''''''Dark Link''''''''''''''''''''''''|
    +----------------------------------------------------+
    Dark Link can use the bow, the bombs, sword slash, 
    roll, jump slash, and spin attack, while you can only 
    use the latter three. When he holds a bomb, you can slash
    it to damage him. When he decides to use the bow, he'll
    shoot three arrows in a row. Just run and he'll miss.
    If he does a jump attack, run behind him when he lands 
    and slash him. Just avoid the spin attack. When he gets
    hurt 8 times, he'll be beaten.
    (Fun Fact: He has the same music as the boss fight with 
    Bellum fused with the Ghost Ship.)
