Walkthrough ************** ################################ 1. Quest for the Full Moon Cello ################################ When the game begins, you will awaken (pun intended ^_^) in a bed. The bed is located in Marin and Tarin's House. Marin will speak to you for a moment. When she is done, jump off the bed (press the down button), and go talk to Tarin (the guy). He will give you your shield. Equip the shield in any button you like, and then speak to Marin again. Leave the house and follow Marin's directions; follow the path to the far west, and then travel as far as you can going south, but be careful to avoid the enemies along the way. When you get to the south shore, walk east -- you will eventually run into an enemy that is blocking your way. Push it aside with your shield, and then move towards the sword resting on the beach. Before you touch it, the owl will come speak to you (instructing you to go meet him north at the Mysterious Woods [which you will do shortly]). After the Owl speaks to you, go pick up your sword (and equip it to which ever of the two buttons you like). After received your sword, head back north to where the two boys are playing catch. One screen north of this, there will be a hole-like opening in the ground with flowers around it. Jump into the well (walk up to it). When you fall in, collect the Piece of Heart, and then head north, and the Owl will meet up with you. **Mysterious Forest** Your main objective here is to get some magic powder which will be used to release the racoon from his spell (you'll meet the racoon in just a moment). To do this, you'll need to locate the witch who lives in the woods -- and before that, you'll have to go collect a mushroom located somewhere in the woods. Where, you ask? Keep reading! ^_^ From the entrance to the forest, go up, right, then enter the cave. Work your way through the cave (you can't get the hearpiece right now), exit the cave and get the mushroom. Then backtrack through the cave. From the cave entrance go down, right, up, up, left, up, right, right, down, down, left. Enter the witch's hut, give her the mushroom, and leave with the powder she gives you. When you exit the hut, go left, up, up, left, left, down, down, left, up and sprinkle some magic powder on the racoon. After you figure out that it was Tarin under a spell, go up and get the tail key. After the Owl talks to you, leave the forest. South to the library (where the kids are playing catch), and from there go down, right, right, right, around and left, down, then right. Walk up to the middle stone to insert the Tail Key, and then enter the cave. ------------------------------- 1a. Level 1 ~ Tail Cave Boss: Moldrom Item: Roc's Feather Instrument: Full Moon Cello ------------------------------- When you enter the dungeon, go left. Hit the two beetles with your sword to knock them into the pit. Pick up the key, and then go left. In this room, kill the blobs that hop out of the floor, and then get the COMPASS out of the chest. Now go right, right, up. In this room, stand on the button near the top to make a chest appear which contains another small key. Now go right, kill all of the enemies, and get the MAP out of the chest that appears. Go left, left, kill the bats (four of them), then go up. Kill the worm and then take the 20 rupees from the chest. From here, go up, unlock and go in the door, then go right, around and left, and then push the single block in any direction in order to open the door. Go left, and then kill the spiked-enemies by letting them run into your shield (while you are blocking), and then attack them with your sword. Go down the stairs that appear. Go left, and then up the ladder. Next, go up, up, open the chest to get ROC'S FEATHER. After you have the feather, backtrack to the room where the stairs appeared then go right, right, around and left, down, down, right. Open the chest to get another small key. Then go right, up, jump over the pit, use a key to unlock the block, go up the stairs, then go left, and get the NIGHTMARE KEY our of the chest. Then go right, down, left, then back right on the lower path, then go up. When you hit the enemie(s), they will stop with a symbol on them -- if you can make all three of them stop with the same symbol on them, a chest will appear that contains the STONE FRAGMENT. Now go down, jump over the pit and go right, and defeat Rolling Bones (see Boss Guide). After you defeat him, go up, open the door and then battle Moldrom (see Boss Guide). When you are complete with Level 1, exit the cave and go left. ########################### 2. Quest for the Conch Horn ########################### After Level 1, the Owl will speak to you. When he is finished, go up, jump the pit, go left, up, and the boys will tell you of a horibble tradegy. Visit Madam MeowMeow's House, (go up then right) and she will inform you that BowWow has been dog napped! **The Rescue of BowWow** From Madam MeowMeow's House, head to the Mysterious Forest. From the entrance, you'll need to work your way to the upper-right of the forest (to the place with a heart piece surrounded by pits). When you reach the heart piece, jump to get it then go up. Now go right and enter the cave. Kill the enemy, go up, destroy the four enemies, go right, and now battle with the Big Moblin. To defeat him, hit him with your sword once he hits the wall and bounces back (in a daze). Do this several times and he will be defeated. Go right, and walk up to the rock to attain BowWow. Hurray! You're a true hero! ^_^ Errr.....moving on. Exit the cave by back-tracking, and then head over to Gopongo Swamp. Don't take BowWow back yet, you'll need him in order to enter Level 2. To get there, work your way around the to central upper-left/right part of the woods (the place with water and flowers). Walk through the Swamp, and BowWow will happily eat the flowers that are blocking your path. When you get to a cave that is completely surrounded by flowers, let BowWow chow down -- this is the entrance to Level 2. When you are ready to enter, go into the cave. BowWow will patiently wait for you to return. --------------------------- 2a. Level 2 ~ Bottle Grotto Boss: Genie Item: Power Braclet Instrument: Conch Horn --------------------------- When you enter the dungeon, don't bother trying to get the chest right now -- Just go up, light the two torches with some magic powder and then go right through the door that opens up. Kill the enemies to get a small key. Go down, and kill the enemy by charging up your sword while you are facing away from, walking towards him (while not facing him), and then releasing the charged sword. Now get the COMPASS from the chest, go up, right, hit the switch, then go down. In this room, hit the switch, take the small key from the chest, go right, jump over the pits, step on the button, and take the small key that appears in the chest. Now hit the switch, go up, kill the enemies, go down, left, up, right, get the key, then go left, left, left, and open the locked door. Go through the door, light both torches, kill both bats, go up. In this room, light both torches, and taket the MAP from the chest. Now go, down, right, right, right, down, right, up, right. In this room kill the bats, and then push the two blocks togeter (in the middle of the room). Go down the stairs, find your way through this part (pretty easy), and then when you re-surface, go up to fight Hinox (see Boss Guide). After you defeat Hinox, go right, jump over the bottom pits, go up, get the STONE FRAGMENT from the chest if you want, continue up (don't get sucked in by the thing in the corner), the go left, light the torches and either kill the ghosts or wait until they leave, and get the POWER BRACLET from the chest. Now go left, pick up the upper-pots, go left (upper path), strike the switch (while standing on the left-lowered blocks), move onto the middle block, strike the switch again, open the chest to get a small key, then strike the switch one more time (so the blocks on the right are lowered). Then go right then down. In this room, move the blocks and kill the Pols Voice (little hopping thing) with a pot, then kill the bat, and last kill the Stalfos (thing walking around). You have to kill them in that order, or the chest won't appear. Take the NIGHTMARE KEY from the chest, then go up and right. In this room kill the two Pols Voices and the bat, and then go down the stairs that appear. In the second screen on the side-scroller, you'll have to pick up the pot and carry it with you onto the platform so that it will go down. Then, go up the ladder, and in the room you re-surface in, hop over the center pits, unlock the door, and prepare to battle the Genie (see Boss Guide). When you are done with Genie, you can re-enter the dungeon to open the chest at the entrance. It is now time to return BowWow **The Return of BowWow to MeowMeow** Exit the Swamp (BowWow will still eat the flowers), and then exit the Mysterious Forest the way you came in. When you return to the house, Madam MeowMeow will thank you for returning her precious pooch, and she will give you a kiss (which will refill your hearts). Before you continue onward, make sure you are keeping up with game events/items. Look below ^_^ **A Brief Reminder** Throughout the walkthrough, I will insert these little reminders to make sure you don't forget to do little side quests and what not. Before continuing to Level 3, be sure you are keeping up with: --Progressing through the trading game (Section H). Make sure that you have gotten the Bananas from the trading game. --Collecting Secret Sea Shells (Section I) --Attempting to get some Heart Pieces (Section J) --Now would be a good time to purchase the SHOVEL from the shop in Mabe Village. After you buy the shovel, you will be able to purchase some bombs and the Bow and arrows. ################################ 3. Quest for the Sea Lily's Bell ################################ After returning BowWow, and now that you have the Power Braclet, you will finally be able to explore Ukuku Prairie! The Prairie is a vast part of the map, but you won't need to explore all of it now. The main thing you want to do now is head for Richard's Villa. To find it, walk through Ukuku Prairie, heading for the sout-mid section. If you work you're way around, you will reach his Villa soon enough. Enter the Villa and speak to Richard (the frogs are odd...huh? ^_^). He will tell you that you need to go to Kanhalet Castle to retrieve the Golden Leaves he left behind. Well...you heard the man..go get those leaves!! To get to Kanhalet Castle, follow the signs that are posted along the way (by first heading right from Richard's Villa). Once you get to the castle, you'll realize it's blocked off. Head to the right, and give the Bananas (from the trading game), to Kiki. Kiki and a few of his friends will then build you a bridge. Cross it, (pick up the stick), then head up, up, left, cut down the flower, and then take the stairs. Go through the side-sequence, and then go up the ladder. For the rest of the castle side quest, I'm just going to tell you where the leaves are located, and you can get them in any order you want to. ^_^ 1. Outside Castle - Right side - Kill the thing in the holes to get a leaf. 2. Outside Castle - Left Side - Throw rock at tree, throw rock at bird. 3. Inside - 1 room left from entrance - Kill all the enemies. 4. Inside - 1st room, 2nd floor - Bomb left outline in wall and then kill the enemy. 5. Inside - around 2nd floor, then out the door and back in through alternate exit. Throw a pot at the door, then go up and kill the enemy. Once you have all five leaves, return to Richard's Villa. Speak to him, and then push the box he was standing next to. Go down the stairs, take the upper-right path (upper-left for a SeaShell), then go up the stairs. From here, work your way down and around, while cutting down the flowers and avoiding the pits. Go down to the bottom then follow the bottom edge, then stay right and head up. Two thirds the way up the screen, cut left and follow the path. When you get to the Owl statue, stand directly below it and dig where you are standing. You will get the Slime Key. Once you have the key, back- track, and then from Richard's Villa, head north, put the key in the slot, then go down, around and right, then jump on the little islands in the water to get to the dungeon. ------------------------------- 3a. Level 3 ~ Key Cavern Boss: Slime Eyes Item: Pegasus Boots Instrument: Sea Lily's Bell ------------------------------- From the dungeon entrance, take a step forward. Once you do, the door ahead of you will shut. To make it open, throw a pot at it. Once open, go up, kill all the enemies, get the small key from the chest then go up, surpass the chest, then go up, up. Go down the stairs and go up. Kill both enemies, get the key, hit the switch, go down, back up the stairs, open the chest to the left, go down, down, right, open the chest, then go left, up, up, back down the stairs. Go left, up, up, take the stairs, go right, take the stairs, kill all of the blobs and get the key. Take the stairs, go left, down, kill all of the enemies, get the small key, go up, left, kill all of the enemies, go right, right, take the stairs, go up, up, right, up, kill all the enemies, go left and get the COMPASS. Bomb the left wall and go left, kill all the enemies, get the key, go right, right, down, left, down, left, kill all the enemies, go up around and down the stairs, go down and get the map, down, right, down, go down the stairs and push the block, then go up through the opening and then battle the Dodongo Snakes (see Boss Guide). Once they are done, go right, push the blocks, and get the PEGASUS BOOTS from the chest. Head back to the first room in the dungeon (the one with the slamming door), go right, charge down the path, and then get the small key from the chest. Now go left, up, up, up, kill all the enem- ies, go down, down, left and up, kill the blob and then go back around and get the STONE FRAGMENT from the chest that appeared. Return to the first room, take the warp, go down, right, bomb the right wall, run/jump the pit, go up and get the NIGHTMARE KEY. Hop down-left, and go left, down, left, open the key tunnel and go around opening the locks. Go down the stairs, ram the block, go left, down the ladder, kill all the enemies, go left and up, and battle Slime Eyes. Once complete with Key Cavern, exit and go right, and the Owl will speak to you. ########################## 4. Quest for the Surf Harp ########################## ||*Coming Soon*|| ************* D. Boss Guide ************* Note: A * indicates potion is recommended. A ** indicates potion is highly recommended. 1.Moldorm--Level 1~Tail Cave -Difficulty: 2 Items Needed: Sword, Roc's Feather/Sheild When you begin fighting the boss, hit him in the tail. He will speed up so either block with your sheild, or dodge him with Roc's Feather. It is pretty easy to dodge Moldorm when he speeds up, but just make sure that he doesn't push you off the edge of the platform, or you will fall into the room below and you will have to start the Nightmare all over again! To avoid falling off the edge, stay close to the center of the platform. You can try and hit him when he speeds up, but just remember that you must hit his tail only. -Instrument: Full Moon Cello -Level 1 Sword: 4 hits -Level 2 Sword: 2 hits *(See note at end of FAQ) 2. Genie--Level 2~Bottle Grotto* -Difficulty: 4 Items Needed: Sword, Power Braclet/Roc's Feather * Before the battle, you should get some Potion from Crazy Tracy. When the battle begins, the Genie will throw 8 fire balls at you. Dodge these by simply walking around the room being sure to stay one step ahead of the fire balls being thrown, or you can switch your Braclet with Roc's Feather and jump away from the balls as they are thrown. After he throws the fire balls at you he will go into his bottle. While the bottle his hopping around the room, hit it with your Sword. When the bottle is immobilized, pick it up with your Power Braclet and throw it against the wall. The Genie will come back out and throw 8 more fire balls at you. Dodge them as before. After you have thrown the bottle against the wall three times, it will break and the Genie will float around the room.While he does this you will see double images of him. When the images come together, he will throw a fire ball at you. Dodge it by jumping, and then hit him with your sword. After you hit him, he will split into two images again. Repeat the process of dodging the fire balls and hitting him until he is dead. -Insturment: Conch Horn -Level 1 Sword: 8 hits -Level 2 Sword: 4 hits 3. Slime Eyes--Level 3~Key Cavern-Difficulty: 3.5 Items Needed: Sword, Pegasus Boots/Roc's Feather When you first enter the room, you must ram into the wall with your Pegasus Boots on to make the boss fall down. When Slime Eyes is on the floor, charge at the center of the eye with your Pegasus Boots on. It takes 4 or 5 _direct_ hits to make Slime Eyes split into two. (The hits must be non-stop.) Once it is split, pick one of the eyes and concentrate on it. Hit it once with your sword. After you hit it, it will fly up above the room. Watch for it's shadow and jump away from it. While it is falling, jump once to avoid getting knocked down on the floor. When it is back on the ground, hit it again. Jump to avoid the shadow, and then jump again to avoid getting knocked onto the ground. Repeat this process of hitting and jumping until the eye dies. Do the same to the other eye until it is dead. -Instrument: Sea Lily's Bell -Level 1 Sword: 8 hits, 4 per eye -Level 2 Sword: 4 hits, 2 per eye 4. Angler--Level 4~Angler's Tunnel*-Difficluty: 4 Items Needed: Sword, Flippers (used automatically) When you enter the Nightmare's Lair, climb the ladder down into the water. When the battle starts, hit him with your sword as many times as you can. Becareful to dodge the little fish that swim by you during battle. Sometimes Angler will charge at you. When he charges, dodge him and he will hit the wall. When he hits the wall, rocks will come falling through the water. Dodge the rocks and little fish and hit Angler if you can. Keep repeating the process of hitting him and dodging him if he charges. To get some extra damage on the boss, use the swinging blade technique. -Instrument: Surf Harp -Level 1 Sword: 10 hits -Level 2 Sword: 5 hits 5. Slime Eel--Level 5~Catfish's Maw*-Difficulty: 5 Items Needed: Sword, Hookshot When you enter the Nightmare's Lair, stay at the door. When the fight begins, the boss will punch a hole in the middle of the room with it's tail. Next it will smash four holes into the wall with it's head. When it's finished smashing all of it's holes, get _behind_ it's tail and stay close behind it all the way through the battle. When Slime Eel's head pops out of a hole near you, grab it with your Hookshot and then hit it with your Sword as many times as you can. After you hit it keep moving, or otherwise the tail will catch up with you and cause you damage. Sometimes when you grab the head with the Hookshot it will come all the way out and move around the room. Move away from it while remaining behind the tail, otherwise you will sustain heavy damage from the decoy and the tail. When the decoy comes out all the way and moves around the room don't try and hit it because it is_just_ a decoy and any damage you put on it won't damage the boss. Keep grabbing the head with the Hookshot and hitting it with your Sword until it is dead. Remember to always stay close behind the tail. A good way to stay behind the tail is to move around the hole in the center of the room. -Instrument: Wind Marimba -Level 1 Sword: 16 hits -Level 2 Sword: 8 hits 6. Facade--Level 6~Face Shrine*-Difficulty: 5.5 Items Needed: Bombs, Power Braclet/Sword/Sheild This is the first battle in the game in which you do not attack the boss with your sword. When you first enter the Nightmare's Lair, even before Facade appears on the floor, go around to all four of the pots in the four corners of the room, pick them up and break them. Facade should appear after you have broken the third pot. When you can, go and brake the fourth pot. When all the tiles start to come up off of t he floor, break them with your Sword, or block them with your Sheild. I recommend that you get into a corner and block all the incoming tiles with your sheild. After all the tiles are gone, holes will begin to randomly appear on the floor. Dodge these as best as you can and walk onto Facade. Don't worry, as long as you stand on top of Facade, you can't get hurt! When you are on it's face, drop a bomb on it. When it explodes the face will disappear for a second or two. When the face reappears, drop another bomb. Stay on Facade and keep dropping bombs until it dies. -Instrument: Coral Triangle -Level 1 Sword: - -Level 2 Sword: - -Bombs: 5 7. Evil Eagle--Level 7~Eagle's Tower*-Difficulty: 7 Items Needed: Hookshot, Shield One thing to remeber for this battle-Never fall off of the tower or you will have to start the Nightmare all over again! When you get on top of the tower, get to the center of it and stay at the center of it as much as you can. When Evil Eagle flies by you, hit it's beak with your Hookshot. This can get kind of difficult because sometimes he flies very high, and sometimes he flies directly towards you. In either case, you must use your Hookshot _before_ Evil Eagle flies by you, or else your timing will be off and he will fly right on by. When Evil Eagle suddenly stops and hovers vertically in the air, this is your cue to use your Sheild. While he flaps his wings, hold your Sheild out to protect you from the feathers, and to prevent you from being blown off the edge. If you are not close enough to the center of the platform when he starts to flap, then you will fall off the edge whether you are using your sheild or not. When he is done flapping, get back to the center of the platform and get ready to hit him again. Try not to get hit too many times by Evil Eagle, because he can take up to three hearts away from you from each hit. Remember to stay close to the center of the platform, and hit him whenever you have the chance. -Instrument: Organ of Evening Calm -Level 1 Sword: - -Level 2 Sword: - -Hookshot: 6 hits 8. Hot head--Level 8~Turtle Rock**-Difficulty: 8 Items Needed: Magic Rod, Roc's Feather When the fight begins, as soon as Hot Head jumps out of the lava, hit him as fast as you can with the Magic Rod. The hits you get on him must be_continous_, or otherwise when he jumps back into the lava he will rejuvinate. If he does go back into the lava, wait until he comes back out and hit him quickly. Don't let up on him even if it looks like he is going to bounce into you; if he touches you while he is in the air, you can't get hurt. When you hit him enough times, his 'lava shell' will break off. All you need to do is hit him a couple more times until he is toast (not that he isn't toasted enough as it is). During battle, always watch out for the lava that he splashes out when he jumps back in. If you get hit by just one drop of lava you will lose FOUR hearts. To avoid the lava that he splashes at you, quickly jump out of the way. Don't bother with your sheild because t can't protect you from lava. (The double star next to the bosses location indicates that I VERY strongly suggest you have some potion with you. This battle isn't easy, and without potion, you could die in less than four hits from the lava.) -Instrument: Thunder Drum -Level 1 Sword: - -Level 2 Sword: - -Magic Rod: 12 hits 9. Final Nightmare--Final Level~The Egg** The Final Nightmare has 6 forms. For each form I will tell you it's name, what items you need to defeat it, how many hits is takes to defeat it, and it's difficulty level. Always stay on your guard, because you fight these last 6 bosses one right after the other. a.Giant Blob Items Needed: Magic Powder When you start this battle, make sure you have magic powder equiped. When the Blob is hopping around the room, walk up to it and sprinkle some magic powder on it. Don't try to hit it with your Sword or anything else because nothing else works. -Magic Powder: 3 hits -Difficulty: 2.1 b. Agahnim Items Needed: Sword, Roc's Feather As soon as he is formed, go to the end of the room opposite of where he is and face him (For example: If he is at the top of the room, you move to the bottom of the room and face him). When he charges up his energy ball and throws it at you, swing your Sword when the ball is close enough to you to bat the magic back at him. Sometimes he throws some other object at you. When he throws it, jump out of the way as best as you can, because it will break apart and damage you. -Magic thrown back at Aghanim: 4 hits -Difficulty: 4 c. Moldorm Items Needed: Sword, Sheild This is a re-creation of the boss from Tail Cave. You attack him the same way; by hitting him in the tail. This time, though, you must hit him more times. He speeds up as before, and if you let him slow down, you will have to start him all over again. Use your sheild if you can't hit him and he is charging at you. -Level 1 Sword: 14 hits -Level 2 Sword: 7 hits -Difficulty: 4.3 d. Ganon Items Needed: Sword, Pegasus Boots Right when he forms, do the charging sword attack with your Pegasus Boots and Sword. Keep charging, even if you take a little damage. If you let up on Ganon, you will take heavy damage. Immediately after you start hitting him, he will throw six bats at you which will damage you if you let them start chasing you. After Ganon throws his bats, he will throw his staff at you and the charge. The staff and the charge both hurt you. If you keep hitting him from the start of the battle, you will take little damage. -Charges to Ganon: 6 -Difficulty: 6.5 e. Lanmola Items Needed: Hookshot/Magic Rod/Boomerang Lanmola isn't too hard to beat, but if you let it start chasing you, you will take heavy damage. To avoid taking any damage, line up with Lanmola before he is even fully formed and hit him with the Hookshot, or Magic Rod, or Boomerang. Trust me, if he chases you, you could take very heavy damage. -Hookshot/Magic Rod/Boomerang: 1 hit (you only need to hit him once with one of the weapons, not all three of them.) -Difficulty: 3.5 f. Dethl Items Needed: Arrows/Boomerang, Roc's Feather This is it. The final battle of the game, and it isn't all that easy. When Dethl forms, jump over it's swinging arms. You will _constantly_ be jumping in this battle. When it opens it's eye shoot an arrow into it, or throw the boomerang into it. After you hit it, it will speed up. It will continue to speed up every time you hit it, which can make this battle very difficult. Unlike Moldorm, Dethl does NOT slow down. When ever it's eye opens again, shoot it as fast as you can. Always stay below Dethl during battle, or else it's arms will deal heavy damage to you. If you have enough heart containers (not hearts, heart containers. I recommed you have at least 11) you should be fine. If you don't have enough have enough heart containers, but you s till have a potion, then you should be fine too. If you don't have enough heart containers and you don't have any potion, then good luck. -Arrows: 16 hits -Boomerang: 1 hit (Using the Boomerang is obviously easier, but try using Arrows for a challenge. When you use the Boomerang, it must be a _direct_ hit into the center of the eye.) -Difficulty: 4.8 (with Boomerang), 9.7 (with Arrows) ************** E. Mini-Bosses ************** 1. Rolling Bones--In Levels: 1, 8~Difficulty: 2 Items Needed: Sword, Roc's Feather Rolling Bones is one of the easiest mini-bosses in the game. All you have to do is jump over the rolling thing and hit Rolling Bones with your Sword. To damage him more, use the your swinging blade technique. -Level 1 Sword: 8 hits -Level 2 Sword: 4 hits 2. Hinox--In Levels: 2, 7, 8~Difficulty: 3.5 Items Needed: Sword/Hookshot/Magic Rod To defeat Hinox, all you have to do is hit him with one of the weapons listed above and dodge his bombs. Becareful though; sometimes he might come at you and pick you up, and then he throws you. If he throws you onto weak floor, then you might fall through. -Level 1 Sword: 8 hits -Level 2 Sword: 4 hits -Hookshot: 3 hits -Magic Rod: 2 hits 3. Dondogo Snakes--In Levels: 3, 6, 8~Difficulty: 3.8 Items Needed: Bombs Bombs are the only weapons that will harm the Dondogo Snakes. All you have to do is throw the bombs so that the Snakes eat them. An easy way to make sure they will eat the bombs is to wait until they are hudled into a corner, and then throw bombs at them. Becareful in Level 6 because there is always the possibility that you might throw bombs into the pits accidentaly. -Bombs: 6 bombs, 3 per Snake 4. Cue Ball--In Level: 4, 8~Difficulty: 3.2 Items Needed: Sword Yet another easy mini-boss. First of all, get to the left of the block (level 4), or the left side of the lava (level 8). When Cue Ball comes to the top or bottom left corner of the room, hit it in the abdomen (big round part of it's body). After you hit it, it will spin and turn around. Sometimes it will go all the way around the room, or it might just turn around and come back. To get more hits in on Cue Ball, use can use the swinging blade technique. Watch out for the lava in Level 8! -Level 1 Sword: 8 hits -Level 2 Sword: 4 hits 5. Grommas--In Level: 5~Difficulty: 3.9 Items Needed: Hookshot/Arrows To defeat these spider-like creatures, all you have to do is hit them in the eye (mouth?) when it opens. When they open up, they will shoot at you; so becareful. Sometimes they will speed up, and sometimes they will charge at you, so watch out! To make this battle easier, I suggest you concentrate on one Gromma at a time, preferably the one at the bottom first. -Hookshot: 12 hits, 6 per Spider -Arrows: 6 hits, 3 per Spider 6. Smasher--In Level: 6, 8~Difficulty: 4.3 Items Needed: Lv 2 Power Braclet This is one strange creature (It reminds me of a dog). As it hops around the room, it will throw it's ball at you. All you have to do is pick up the ball and throw it back at him. You must pick it up before Smasher does, or you will have to wait until he throws it again. Be sure not to get hit by the ball or Smasher! -Hits by the ball: 4 hits 7. Grim Creeper--In Level: 7~Difficulty: 5 Items Needed: Sword, Sheild I would say this is the hardest mini-boss, although some people would say it is the easiest. To defeat the Grim Creeper all you have to do is kill all six of the birds in one pass. It seems easy enough, but if you miss all six on the first pass, then they regroup in a different patern and it could become difficult. If you don't hit all the of the birds in one try, they will keep coming back until you do (all six come back). You can use your Sheild to block the birds if you want, but it really isn't neccesary. He will run away once you defeat all 6 birds in one pass. -Sword: Kill all 6 birds in one pass 8. Blaino--In Level: 8~Difficulty: 6.9 Items Needed: Sword, Roc's Feather I lied...this is the hardest mini-boss. The only place you can attack this guy is on the side, unless he is getting ready for a punch; then you can hit him on the front side. If you can get to the side of him (which is very hard to do), hit him with your sword as many times as you can. Or, you can just wait until he winds up for an upper cut and then hit him, but be careful!! If he uppercuts you (the punch where he winds up first), it will knock you all the way to the beginning of the dungeon!! Just avoid his front side and you should do just fine. -Level 1 Sword: 16 hits (Extremely difficult!) -Level 2 Sword: 8 ******************** F.

But there is a Game Genie code which allows you to get the Level 2 Sword at the beginning of the game (02C-745-E6E), so I have put the Level 2 Sword thing at the end of every boss for those of you who decided to use the code to get the Sword early.
