    Version 1.1 (2/16/11): I recently replayed this game and reworked parts of 
    the walkthrough. I added an Overview section which contains a map of the 
    island and important locations, and revamped the Heart Piece/Secret Seashell 
    sections to be easier to understand.
    
    Version 1.0 (7/25/02): The first version of this file.

    The fourth Zelda title made it to the original Gameboy portable back in mid-
    1993. Like the first and third ones, it was an overhead adventure, complete 
    with dungeons, monsters, heart pieces, and a wide array of items and places 
    to visit. In this one, Link is trapped on an island and cannot escape because 
    of the sleeping Wind Fish. So, he has to travel through 8 dungeons and 
    collect the Siren's Instruments to awaken the Wind Fish and venture away. 
    This Zelda game is just one of those games that everyone has played at one 
    point or another in the nearly a decade's worth of time since it was first 
    released. So if you have yet to do so, go play it already!

    Though you fulfilled the Hyrulian prophecy of the Legendary Hero and 
    destroyed the evil tyrant Ganon, the land of Hyrule enjoyed only a precarious 
    peace. "Who knows what threats may arise from Ganon's ashes?" the restless 
    people murmured as they knitted their brows and shook their heads. Ever 
    vigilant, you decided to journey away from Hyrule on a quest for 
    enlightenment, in search of wisdom that would make you better able to 
    withstand the next threat to your homeland. Months of difficult travel 
    passed. After a long and fruitful voyage, you breathed deeply the sea spray 
    from the deck of the ship that carried you home to Hyrule. But your 
    homecoming was not to be. Suddenly a squall struck your ship, and though you 
    valiantly fought the waves, a lightning bolt reduced your ship to splinters.
    
    Your world faded to black as you sink into the darkness of the storm-tossed 
    sea with the remains of your craft. But in the cold darkness of the deep, you 
    heard a comforting voice that reminded you of home. It was the voice of 
    Princess Zelda! "You're going to be all right!" the voice said. "What a 
    relief!"
    
    You opened your eyes to find Princess Zelda standing over you - or was it?! 
    Actually, it turned out to be a woman named Marin. She explained that you had 
    drifted with the wreckage of your ship to the shores of Koholint Island. This 
    mysterious island was unique for the gigantic egg, which crowned its central 
    mountain. It was said that a mythical creature, the Wind Fish, lay asleep 
    inside the egg.
    
    You set out in search of your sword and other gear that might have washed up 
    on the beach with you. As you stood in the surf with your recovered sword, a 
    strange owl suddenly appeared and hooted this riddle:
    
    "Awaken the Wind Fish and all will be answered."
    
    "What is the Wind Fish?" you wonder... And what did its awakening portend? 
    Your most mysterious adventure yet, following the riddle of the Wind Fish 
    throughout the uncharted island of Koholint, is about to unfold.

    The game takes place on Koholint Island, as you will find out. The island is 
    on a 16x16 map (256 different overworld screens). If you press Select during 
    the game, you can view the sections of the map you have already visited; all 
    unvisited areas can not be viewed. You get nothing for visiting every screen 
    of the overworld, so don't worry. On the in-game map, you can press A over a 
    space to view the area's name and any important information about that 
    location (if an icon appears in the lower-right corner). The grid below will 
    show where every locale is, as well as the coordinates of many important 
    locations for easy viewing.

    =========
    Overworld
    =========
    
    You start the game in a house in Mabe Village, still unconscious in bed. You 
    wake up and the girl who rescued you, Marin, is talking to you but you think 
    that she's Princess Zelda! After she tells you that you're on Koholint 
    Island, jump out of bed and talk to Tarin, Marin's father. He will give you 
    your L-1 Shield and it'll be automatically equipped on you. After that, leave 
    the house and go west two screens, past Madam MeowMeow's House to the screen 
    with the well. From there, head south for three more screens to reach the 
    Toronbo Shores area.
    
    There, go south until you reach a screen with trees and Octoroks wandering 
    around. Head east one screen to find some Urchins blocking access to the 
    bottom half of the screen. Hold up your Shield and walk into the Urchins to 
    push them back safely, then head east to the next screen. Push another pair 
    of Urchins aside and continue south one screen to the water. You will spot 
    your Sword there, but as you approach, a mysterious owl will appear. It will 
    tell you to go to the Mysterious Woods, among other things. Once it leaves, 
    go forward and collect the L-1 Sword!
    
    Now that you are equipped with a weapon, you can attack enemies and cut down 
    bushes/grass to earn some rupees! Make your way back to Mabe Village by the 
    well you passed on the way. You can cut down the bush there on the ledge and 
    fall into the well, where you will find your first Piece of Heart! You can 
    find a Secret Seashell in the large field of bushes one screen east of Marin 
    and Tarin's House. If you have enough money, you can start the game's trading 
    sequence by getting the Yoshi Doll at the Trendy Game, and complete the next 
    couple of trades in town.
    
    When you are ready, go north of the well and cut down the bush by the sign to 
    enter the forest. You will meet the owl again there. Once it leaves, continue 
    north two screens while fighting the Moblins along the way. At the corner, go 
    east two screens to find a cave. In the first room, open the chest to get 50 
    rupees, then get through the rest of the cave while defeating the Keese and 
    Gels along the way. In the room with the rocks, push two of them aside to 
    reach the exit.
    
    Back outside, grab the Sleepy Toadstool behind the bushes to the left. With 
    it, re-enter the cave and push your way through the rocks, then continue out 
    to the other end. When you emerge again, go north two screens to find a cave 
    blocked off by rocks for now. Head east two more screens to reach a Piece of 
    Heart surrounded by pits (return here later when you can jump over them). 
    Then, continue south and east to reach the Witch's Hut. Give the witch inside 
    the toadstool and she will make you some Magic Powder.
    
    Now, leave the hut and go west one screen, north two, west two, and south 
    two. You will be back at the cave entrance you went through previously. This 
    time, go west one screen and north another one to find a raccoon. Go up to it 
    and use some Magic Powder on it, and it will transform back into Tarin! After 
    he is done talking, go into the northern area and you will find a chest. Open 
    it to get the Tail Key. The owl will appear yet again, pointing you to the 
    Tail Cave by the shore. When it flies away, head back south three screens, 
    west one, and south two to return to the well in Mabe Village.
    
    From here, go south two screens until you reach the first area with the 
    cliffs. Read the sign if you want, then go east three screens. Follow the 
    path around for the next few screens and you will come to the Tail Cave at 
    the dead end. Walk into the keyhole to use the key, which will unlock the 
    cave entrance. Then, go inside.
    
    
    ==================
    Level 1: Tail Cave
    ==================
    
    Starting off, go into the room to the west. Knock the Hardhat Beetles into 
    the pit with your Sword, then collect the Small Key that falls from above. In 
    the west room ahead, defeat the Gels that appear to unlock the door. Open the 
    chest to get the Compass, then go back east two rooms to the entrance. This 
    time, go into the north room and knock the Hardhat Beetle into the pit, then 
    defeat the smaller Gels. Go around and step on the floor switch to make a 
    chest appear. Open the chest to get a Small Key, then go into the east room.
    
    In this room, defeat the Stalfos and Keese to make a chest appear; open it to 
    get the Map. Then, go up through the one-way door. In the next room, simply 
    go west into the following room. Defeat the Mini Moldorm while trying to 
    avoid the Sparks, then open the chest to get a Small Key. Now, go west into 
    the next room and defeat the Mini Moldorm to make another chest appear. Open 
    it to get 20 rupees. If you have Bombs, you can bomb the cracked wall and 
    grab a Secret Seashell inside (you can come back later for it).
    
    Now, go north and into the next room. Here, defeat the Keese, then activate 
    the Blade Trap and stand back. As it retracts, run past and unlock the door 
    to enter the next room. Here, go east, north and west around the room to get 
    to the upper half. When you reach the locked door, push the leftmost block 
    aside to open it. Enter the next room where you'll encounter two Spiked 
    Beetles. Flip them over with your Shield and defeat them with your Sword to 
    make a staircase appear.
    
    Go down the steps into the basement area, then get through the passage while 
    defeating the Goombas. At the west end, climb the ladder to reach a new room 
    above. Here, go north through the hallway until you reach the room with the 
    Blade Traps. Activate them, then run past when they return to where they 
    were, and open the chest to get Roc's Feather. With it, you can now jump over 
    small pits and even enemies!
    
    Now, get past the Blade Traps and leave the room. Use Roc's Feather to take 
    the winged heart while going down the hall so you can get all your hearts 
    refilled. Continue southward to the steps, then go down and through the 
    basement area. When you emerge in the Spiked Beetle room, go east into the 
    next room. Here, simply jump over the pit and go into the southern room. Go 
    south one room and east one more You will see a block at the east end of the 
    room; take the eastern path above the block to reach the next room. Then, go 
    east and north into another room.
    
    Jump across the pit and walk into the block with a keyhole on it to open it, 
    then continue into the west room. Open the chest there to get the Nightmare's 
    Key. Now, backtrack a few rooms back to the room with the Mini Moldorm and 
    the Sparks, then take the lower path to the east room. Unlock the eastern 
    door and continue into that room. In here, you can jump over the pit and 
    continue into the east room (if you go north, you can defeat the Three-of-a-
    Kind enemies and open a chest to get the Stone Slab).
    
    In the east room, you will get to fight the Rolling Bones mini-boss. Simply 
    jump over the spiked log and attack with your Sword to defeat it. After that, 
    take the Fairy and go north into the next room (a warp will appear as well, 
    which you can use to return here from the entrance at any time; this will 
    happen after most mini-boss fights throughout the game, so keep that in 
    mind). Avoid the Blade Traps here and make your way to the other side of the 
    room, then use the Nightmare Key to unlock the door, then enter that room to 
    meet Moldorm, the Tail Cave boss. Read the Bosses section of this guide for 
    help on beating it.
    
    After you beat it, take the Heart Container, then go into the final room and 
    claim the Full Moon Cello!
    
    
    =========
    Overworld
    =========
    
    After you get warped back outside, go west to the next screen and the owl 
    will be there waiting. It'll tell you that you need to collect all the 
    instruments and that you should head to Goponga Swamp. After it leaves, go 
    north one screen and hop over the pit, then continue west two screens. At the 
    signpost, go north to the library and the two kids will stop you. They will 
    mention that BowWow was kidnapped by some Moblins! So, continue north two 
    screens and cut down the bush to enter the Mysterious Woods again.
    
    Here, go north two screens, east one, and north two. You should be at the 
    chset where you found the Tail Key earlier. Jump over the pits to the right 
    and continue east three screens. Jump over the pits and grab the Piece of 
    Heart, then jump to the north and enter that area. Continue east another 
    screen from there to find a cave. Inside, go through the first two rooms and 
    defeat the Moblins. In the third room, you will face the King Moblin. Beat it 
    by dodging its arrows until it charges at you. Move out of the way so it 
    crashes into the wall, then while it's dazed, hit it with your Sword. Repeat 
    that process until it's defeated, then go to the last room to free BowWow; 
    just walk up to the rock it's chained on to free it.
    
    Now, get out of the cave and head east one screen to see the owl if you want. 
    Otherwise, go west and south to the area with the pits. Jump across them and 
    go west three screens. Cut the bushes down around the empty chest and 
    continue west, then north a screen. Head east two screens until you reach the 
    southwest corner of the Goponga Swamp.
    
    As you probably noticed already, BowWow can eat enemies whole, saving you the 
    trouble of fighting them! BowWow can also eat the Goponga Flowers in the 
    swamp which you can not kill on your own (at least not yet). So, head north 
    one and east two screens, having BowWow kill the enemies along the way if you 
    desire. When you reach the cave entrance surrounded by Goponga Flowers, wait 
    for BowWow to eat one, then enter the second dungeon.
    
    
    ======================
    Level 2: Bottle Grotto
    ======================
    
    When you enter this dungeon, just go straight ahead and into the next room. 
    Here, the room is darkened and the doors are locked. To light the lanterns 
    and open the doors, go up the steps and sprinkle Magic Powder in both of the 
    lanterns. They'll light up and open the door, so head into the east room. In 
    this room, defeat the two Stalfos and take the Key that appears after you 
    beat them. Use it to open the southern door, then enter that room. Defeat the 
    Mask-Mimic (hold your Sword button charged, then move around so you end up 
    behind the enemy, and perform the spinning attack to kill it). Open the chest 
    that appears to get the Compass, then exit the room. Then, continue east.
    
    In the new area, hit the crystal switch and go into the southern room. Beat 
    the Sword Stalfos if you want, then hit the crystal switch and open the chest 
    to get a Key. Now, simply continue into the east room. Here, jump across the 
    platforms where the blocks are lowered with Roc's Feather and step on the 
    floor switch to make a chest appear. Open it to get a Key. Then, hop your way 
    to the northern ledge and enter that room. Defeat the Mask-Mimics with your 
    spinning sword attack to make another Key appear behind the blocks.
    
    Now, go back south one room and west one room. Hit the crystal switch near 
    the chest to raise the blocks surrounding it, and continue northward. Cross 
    the line of lowered blocks and turn into the east area. Grab the Key and head 
    back west, and into the southern room again. Hit the crystal switch, then go  
    east, north, and east into a room with two Spiked Beetles. Defeat them if you 
    want, otherwise unlock the door and enter the north room.
    
    In this room, push the two blocks together to make steps appear; go down them 
    to reach the basement. Get across the moving platforms with help from Roc's 
    Feather, then climb into the new room at the west end. In the darkened room, 
    walk around the perimeter to the left, or simply jump across to the middle 
    platform and grab the winged heart overhead. Then, go through the one-way 
    door to find the Hinox mini-boss. Defeat it easily with your Sword, but avoid 
    the bombs it throws.
    
    After you beat it, take the Fairy and note the warp that appears, and enter 
    the east room. Hop across the pits and grab another winged heart in the 
    southeast corner. Defeat the Keese and enter the north room. Here, be 
    cautious of the Vacuum Mouth in the corner which will affect your movement. 
    Open the chest to get the Stone Slab if you want it, then continue going 
    north. In the next room, open the chest to get 20 rupees. Grab the winged 
    Magic Powder and unlock the west door. There, light a lantern with some Magic 
    Powder, and beat the Boo Buddies to make another chest appear. Open it to get 
    the Power Bracelet, which is another really useful item!
    
    Now, leave the room and lift up the pots behind the chest, then continue to 
    the next room. Go east and hit the crystal switch, then stand on the lowered 
    block in the middle and hit it again to lower the other ones. Then, stand on 
    the lowered blocks to the right and hit the switch again to raise them while 
    you're standing on them. Open the chest nearby to get a Key. After that, 
    continue east for two rooms. When you reach the Keese and Stalfos, defeat 
    them if you want, otherwise go into the room to the south for now.
    
    To get the Nightmare's Key, you must defeat the three enemies here in the 
    exact order I tell you here, otherwise you won't get it. First, push the 
    blocks around so you can hit the Pols Voice surrounded by blocks. Defeat the 
    Pols Voice by throwing a pot at it. Then, defeat the Keese in the lower-right 
    corner of the room. Finally, beat the Shrouded Stalfos and a chest should 
    appear. Open it to get the Nightmare's Key.
    
    With that done, go north to exit the room. Unlock the eastern door and 
    continue into that room now. Defeat the Gel and Pols Voices to make some 
    stairs appear, then go down them to reach the basement. In the first scene, 
    just ride down the stone elevator and continue onward. In the second area, 
    pick up a pot and carry it onto the second elevator to weigh it down. Then, 
    go west and up the stairs to reach the next room.
    
    In this room, follow the path to the southern end, then jump across the 
    middle ledges with Roc's Feather. Unlock the boss door and enter the final 
    room. You will meet the Genie inside; read the Bosses section if you need 
    help. Once it's over, take the Heart Container and go to the next room, and 
    take the Conch Horn!
    
    
    =========
    Overworld
    =========
    
    After you are brought back outside of the Bottle Grotto, have BowWow eat a 
    passageway through the flowers, then go south to the next screen. Use the 
    Power Bracelet to lift up the two stones, then continue south to the next 
    screen. Jump over the pits and continue south two screens, and east one to 
    the Witch's Hut. Jump over the pit there and continue southward for two 
    screens. Lift the stone at the end of the path, then go south one screen to 
    find your first warp portal; jump into it and you will not get anywhere for 
    now. However it is useful to know this location.
    
    Anyway, go west and lift the stones to reach Mabe Village again. Visit Madam 
    MeowMeow's House (it's to the west of Marin's) and talk to her to return 
    BowWow. Once you get your big reward (heh), exit the house. You should have 
    enough rupees on you to buy the Shovel by now, so it's time to head to the 
    Shop. Go in and buy the Shovel (it would help if you did the Money Saving 
    Trick here). You should buy some Bombs as well. When you are done, leave the 
    shop.
    
    Before you proceed onward, you will want to look at the Trading Sequence 
    section of the guide and make sure you have completed it up until the point 
    you get the Bananas. Once you have the Bananas, you will be set to go. Head 
    east from the shop to reach the next area. Cut down the bushes and lift up 
    the rocks and go east to enter the Ukuku Prairie region.
    
    There is a lot of exploring for you to do in this area, and plenty of items 
    to be found in due time. If you want to go exploring now, peruse the Secret 
    Seashells section and have fun adventuring. First, go east a screen to find 
    the warp portal again. From here, go south three, east one, and south one 
    screen. You will pass the Key Cavern and the keyhole; you will be back here 
    soon. When you arrive to the south of there, you will find a house. This is 
    Richard's villa. Go inside and talk to Richard, and he will ask you to 
    collect the five Golden Leaves inside of Kanalet Castle in exchange for his 
    help.
    
    Agree to help, then leave the villa. Your next goal is to reach a monkey 
    standing outside of Kanalet Castle to the east and north (L8 on the grid). To 
    get there directly from the villa, go: east one, north three, east one, north 
    two, east one, north one, and east two. When you get there, talk to Kiki the 
    monkey and give him the Bananas. He will summon his friends and they will 
    build you a bridge, leaving a Stick behind. Take it and go across the bridge 
    to reach a new area.
    
    Continue north for three screens, then when you reach the Telephone Booth, go 
    west one screen. Cut down the bush and go downstairs to enter a hidden 
    passage. Use Roc's Feather to cross the spikes in the second half, then 
    emerge within the castle walls at the other side. Once you're inside the 
    castle's walls, your job is to find the five Golden Leaves for Richard.
    
    First, head right and defeat the Soldier there. Then, go south to the next 
    area and you'll see six holes in the ground. The Mad Bomber randomly pops out 
    of them (usually the one farthest away from you). Hit the bomber four times 
    with your Sword to make him give up the first Golden Leaf. Next, go south and 
    beat a couple more Soldiers, then head west for a couple of screens. Defeat 
    another Soldier, then go west one screen and beat yet another Soldier. Then, 
    lift up a rock and throw it at the tree the Crow is sitting in. That'll make 
    it fly out after you; hit it with your sword a couple times to beat it and 
    get the second Leaf.
    
    Now, go back south and east to the castle entrance again. This time, go 
    inside and continue to the second room. Here, defeat the Gel and two sword-
    less Soldiers to make the next Golden Leaf appear. Take it, then go north and 
    into the next room. Avoid the Soldiers here and go east to the following 
    room. Defeat the Keese and sword-less Soldier, then stand on the switch there 
    to lower the gate in front of the castle for easy access outside, then go up 
    the nearby steps and head west. Go up the stairs at the end to the next 
    floor.
    
    There, go down the steps in front of you and put a bomb in front of the left 
    wall statue. It'll explode and a Soldier will come out so watch out! Beat the 
    Soldier to get the fourth Leaf. Now, go up the steps and continue east, and 
    follow the path until you end up outside of the castle. Reenter the castle 
    via the nearby door to the right. In there, pick up a pot and throw it at the 
    door to open it, then enter the room. You will have to fight the Knight mini-
    boss inside. After you beat it, take the final Golden Leaf and exit the room. 
    Go back outside, then make your way back downstairs through the castle until 
    you are at the main entrance outside again.
    
    From the castle entrance, go south two screens, west one, south two, west 
    one, south three, and west one screen. You should be passing a maze of bushes 
    to the left as you proceed along the narrow path. At the end, you will find 
    Richard's villa again. Go inside and talk to Richard, who will now move aside 
    since you found the Golden Leaves. Push the dresser he was standing next to 
    aside and you will reveal some hidden stairs. Go down them to enter a hidden 
    room below.
    
    Follow the path through this small cave, defeating the Gels along the way. At 
    the first path split, go left and jump over a gap to reach a Secret Seashell 
    in a chest. When you emerge at the other end of the cave, you will be within 
    that maze, known as the Pothole Maze. Please refer to a map I created, found 
    at GameFAQs, for help getting through this area:
    
    db.gamefaqs.com/portable/gbcolor/file/zelda_links_awakening_dx_pothole.gif
    
    After you get to the other side by the owl statue, cut down the bush in front 
    of it and use the Shovel to dig where the bush was. Take the Slime Key that 
    you dig up, then get back around through the bush maze and through the cave 
    into Richard's villa. After you leave the villa, follow the path going north 
    and west until you reach the Key Cavern gate. You should see a keyhole there; 
    go up to it and use the Slime Key to open the gate.
    
    To get inside this dungeon, go back south to Richard's villa, then head east 
    and north again. When you're able to go west towards the water, approach the 
    water's edge and go south. Then, jump across the platforms in the water and 
    head west to reach the Key Cavern entrance. Go inside to start the dungeon.
    
    
    ===================
    Level 3: Key Cavern
    ===================
    
    When you enter this dungeon, lift up a pot and throw it at the locked door to 
    open it, then go into the north room. In there, defeat the enemies to make a 
    chest appear. Open it to get a Key. Then, take the path north of the chest 
    (the right path) to the next room. Walk up through this room and beat the 
    Gels that appear. Open the chest if you want to fight another Gel, otherwise 
    don't touch the chest and continue north and into the next room.
    
    In this room, either defeat or ignore the two Stalfos since beating them will 
    do nothing because you can't reach the small Gel until later in this level. 
    Anyway, go north into the next room and head down the stairs to the floor 
    below. Defeat the Gels here if you want, then use the Key to open the south 
    door and enter that room. There, defeat the Pairodd, the Shrouded Stalfos, 
    and a couple of Gels to make a Key appear. Take the Key as it moves along the 
    moving floor. Then, go back up to the previous room and open the west door. 
    Here, beat the Pairodds and a couple more Gels to make another Key appear.
    
    Take it and the winged hearts if you need the health, then go back to the 
    middle room. Now, unlock the north door and enter that room. Beat the enemies 
    there to make another Key appear. Take it, then go back to the previous room. 
    Finally, unlock the eastern door and enter that room. Go around the room and 
    defeat the enemies if you want, then go up the stairs at the end. In the next 
    room, go around this room and beat all five Gels that come out of the ground 
    to make a Key appear. Take it and go north to the next room.
    
    Here, simply go west to the following room and defeat all the Gels there to 
    open the doors. First, go into the west room and defeat the enemies inside to 
    make a Key appear. Take it and go through the one-way door leading to the 
    north room. Defeat the Stalfos and Gels in there to make a chest appear on 
    the high ledge, which we will come back to. Continue through the next one-way 
    door to the next room. In there, beat the Sword Stalfos and Bombites, and 
    lift the pots to reach some winged Bombs.
    
    After that, go up the steps and head south to the next room. Open the chest 
    to get the Map, and continue southward. In the next room, push the block 
    ahead to get down the stairs, then enter the north door. You will fight the 
    two Dodongo Snakes in here. To beat them quickly, defeat one of them (feed 
    Bombs to them), then go up the steps at the bottom of the screen and go to 
    the next room. Then, go back up and the one you didn't kill will be dead! 
    After you beat them and the warp appears, go into the east room and follow 
    the path around. Then, push the bottom block to the left and the other block 
    upward to make a path. Open the chest there to get the Pegasus Boots!
    
    Now, take the nearby winged hearts if you want, then use the Pegasus Boots 
    and the Sword to ram through the crystal blocks. Then, push the block at the 
    end and go south to the next room. In this room, bomb the east wall between 
    the two candles, then go right through the hole to the next room. In this 
    room, use the Pegasus Boots and Roc's Feather to jump across the pit, then go 
    up the steps and to the next room. Here, go up and jump across the smaller 
    pit, then open the chest to get the Nightmare's Key.
    
    Next, jump off the ledge and go north to the next room. Here, beat the 
    Bombites that count down before exploding, as well as the Gels. Go through 
    the next door when it opens to reach the new room. Beat the Shrouded Stalfos 
    and the Gels, and open the chest to get the Compass. Then, bomb the lower 
    half of the left wall to make a hole in it, then go through that hole to the 
    next room. Here, beat the Bombites to make a Key appear. Take it, then 
    backtrack a few rooms back to the room where you got the Nightmare's Key on 
    the higher ledge.
    
    From here, go west into the next room, then continue south to the following 
    room. Head west one room, then go north to where you fought the Dodongo 
    Snakes before. Step into the warp to return to the dungeon entrance. When you 
    arrive, go into the east room now. Use the Pegasus Boots and Sword to cross 
    the room when the Vacuum Mouth tries to keep you away. Defeat it and open the 
    chest to get a Key, then exit the room. Throw a pot at the northern door to 
    open it, and continue into that room.
    
    This time in here, take the left path up through the next couple of rooms. 
    Run through the crystals with the boots, and then in the following room, beat 
    the small Gel. Now, backtrack to the room with the Bombites and take the 
    right path to the north. When you get to the room with the Stalfos on the 
    other side, beat them and open the chest that appears to get the Stone Slab.
    
    From here, backtrack again to the dungeon's entrance and take the warp to the 
    mini-boss room. Go south and out of the room, then unlock the first keyhole 
    block. Follow the path going north and around the next few rooms, opening the 
    keyhole blocks to reach the stairs at the end. Then, go down the stairs into 
    a basement area. Use the Pegasus Boots to ram the Mega Thwomp, causing it to 
    fall, then continue ahead to the next room. Here, use the Pegasus Boots and 
    Roc's Feather to jump across the spike pit, then grab onto the ladder by the 
    pipe. Then, go up to the top and climb down the other ladder to exit.
    
    In the new room, defeat the Pairodds with help from your Pegasus Boots and 
    Sword. Take the winged hearts if needed, then go to the next room. Ignore the 
    Keese and unlock the north door with the Nightmare's Key to enter the boss's 
    room. After it taunts you from its hiding place, ram the wall to shake it off 
    the ceiling and make it come down. Read the Bosses section of this guide for 
    information on beating the Slime Eyes.
    
    After you beat them, take the Heart Container and go into the next room, and 
    take the Sea Lily's Bell, the third Instrument!
    
    
    =========
    Overworld
    =========
    
    After you get warped back outside again, go east one screen and the owl will 
    fly in again. It'll tell you to head towards the Yarna Desert. After it 
    leaves, climb the stairs and go north, then head west a screen and drop down 
    to the lower area. From there, continue north one and west one screen. Lift 
    the rocks in the way and continue into Mabe Village again. This time around, 
    go north of the shop and lift the rocks in front of the small building, and 
    enter it.
    
    Inside, simply enter the bed and you will fall asleep. You will then get 
    transported into the Dream Shrine itself. There, use your Sword and Pegasus 
    Boots to dash through all the Arm Mimics as you make your way all the way 
    around the shrine. When you reach the first set of steps, go up them and up 
    the next set, and then open the chest at the next screen to get 100 rupees. 
    Then, go back down and ram through the crystal, and go up the other steps. 
    Open the chest to get the Ocarina.
    
    Now, go back down one set of steps and jump off the ledge, and exit the 
    shrine to wake up. Then, just exit the Dream Shrine with your new item. Go 
    south and west to the weather vane, and you will see Marin standing nearby. 
    Talk to her and she will start to sing, and you will play along on the 
    Ocarina. Answer yes when she asks if her song sticks with you, and you will 
    learn your first song, "The Ballad of the Wind Fish"!
    
    After that, you have nothing more to do in the village for now (unless you 
    have 980 rupees, then buy the Bow at the shop). So, go east two screens and 
    lift the stones to exit the village. Continue east one screen to reach the 
    warp area. From here, head east, north, and east to find a tree with a 
    Honeycomb in it. Talk to Tarin and give him the Stick, and he will knock the 
    Honeycomb out of the tree. After he runs away, take the Honeycomb and 
    continue southward. On the next screen, bomb the large rock to clear the 
    path, and go up the stairs to progress.
    
    From here, go east one screen, north one, east one, south two, and east one 
    more screen. You should be at a screen with a sign and a lone bush next to 
    some trees (K11 on the grid). Cut down the bush to reveal stairs leading into 
    a secret passage. Down here, defeat the Shark and enter the second room. Use 
    the Pegasus Boots and Sword to break through the crystal blocks, and go up 
    the stairs at the other side. When you emerge above, go south two screens and 
    head east one screen to enter the Animal Village.
    
    When you enter the Animal Village, go east one screen and south one. You'll 
    see a building there; go inside and meet Chef Bear. Talk to him and give him 
    the Honeycomb in exchange for the Pineapple. He will then tell you about the 
    sleeping walrus by the entrance to the desert, and how Marin is the only one 
    who can wake it! Leave the house and go south one screen, then west one to 
    find a warp portal. Jump in to arrive at the other one, then go west into 
    Mabe Village again.
    
    Back in the first village, make your way all the way west and south past the 
    library and down the cliffs to the Toronbo Shores. Head eastward along the 
    shore as far as you can, then go north and east a screen each to find a chest 
    surrounded by rocks. Remove the rocks and open the chest to find 50 rupees, 
    then go south to find Marin sitting by the shore. Talk to her and sit down 
    for a while. After she is done talking, she will go back with you to the 
    Animal Village.
    
    With Marin in tow, backtrack quite a bit through Mabe Village and through the 
    warp portal to return to the Animal Village. You can also take a shortcut of 
    sorts by going east of where you found Marin and jumping across a wide gap 
    using the Pegasus Boots and Roc's Feather, but then you would have to go 
    through an extra cave of enemies. Either way, once you arrive at the Animal 
    Village, go to the empty area in the southwest section of town, and continue 
    southward. Go south and east a couple of screens to find the walrus blocking 
    the eastern path.
    
    Approach the walrus and agree to surprise the walrus, then Marin will begin 
    to sing. This will cause the walrus to roll back into the water, clearing the 
    path. With that done, Marin will head back to Animal Village, leaving you to 
    enter the desert. So, go east into the Yarna Desert.
    
    Upon entering the desert, go north until you reach the quicksand area. The 
    Lanmola will them emerge and you'll have to fight it. Slash it with your 
    sword whenever it jumps out of the sand until it's defeated. After you beat 
    it, take the Angler Key it leaves behind and you'll automatically sink into 
    the quicksand into a cave below. When you land, collect the Angler Key again 
    and bomb the north wall of the first room to find a Piece of Heart if you 
    want. Then, go east and up the stairs to exit the cave.
    
    Back outside, go south, west, and south one screen apiece to meet the owl 
    again. After it flies off, make your way back into the Animal Village and 
    jump into the warp portal south of Chef Bear's house. When you emerge in the 
    Ukuku Prairie area, head north a screen. Climb the steps and lift the stone, 
    then continue north for two screens to reach the Witch's Hut. From there, go 
    west one, north three, east one, and north one screen to E3 on the grid (one 
    screen east of the Bottle Grotto).
    
    Once there, lift the stones in the way and take the northern path to the east 
    screen. When you see stairs leading northward, follow them to reach the Wind 
    Fish's Egg if you want. Otherwise, continue east for two screens to find a 
    couple of enemies and a stone blocking the path. Lift the stone and go east, 
    then down the steps on the next screen. At the bottom of the steps, go north 
    one screen to the water and continue east for two screens. When you come to 
    the keyhole, use the Angler Key to dry out the waterfall, revealing the 
    dungeon entrance.
    
    Continue east to find the third warp portal; use it to activate it, then 
    return here and head back west three screens to the stairs. Go south and 
    west, then climb the stairs and lift the stone blocking the path. Take the 
    northwest path ahead one screen, then take the stairs leading northward into 
    the mountains. Lift the stones blocking the cave entrance on the ledge, and 
    enter that cave.
    
    Go east to the second room of the cave, then cut down the dried coral and 
    push the stones around to reach the stairs. Go up to the next room and head 
    east to reach some more stairs. Take them to the top floor and enter the next 
    room, where you will find a cave exit. Go out there to find a chest holding 
    50 rupees, then reenter the cave. Use the Pegasus Boots to get through the 
    crystal blocks to reach the far eastern half of the room, then exit the cave 
    there.
    
    Outside again, go south and east along the path until you see a ledge you can 
    jump off of to the south. At that point, drop down and you will land in front 
    of the dungeon below, so enter it.
    
    
    ========================
    Level 4: Angler's Tunnel
    ========================
    
    When you enter the Angler's Tunnel, go forward to the next room. There, beat 
    the Spiked Beetles and the Gel to open the east door, then enter that room. 
    Defeat another couple of Spiked Beetles and a Gel to open the south and west 
    doors. Open the chest to get the Compass, then go into the south room. Here, 
    get across the room and jump over the deep sections of water along the way. 
    Defeat the Water Tektites, then cut your way to the chest and open it to get 
    a Key.
    
    Next, go back out of this room, then go west to the following room. There, go 
    up the steps and continue east for two rooms along the upper path. At the 
    end, go down the steps and open the chest to get the Stone Slab. Now, go back 
    up the steps and into the previous room. This time, go north for two rooms, 
    east one, and north one more on the high path to reach a chest. Open it to 
    get the Map. Then, go south one room and use the Pegasus Boots and Roc's 
    Feather to jump across the pit, and enter the east room.
    
    Here, bomb the cracked block, and then push the solid block into the water. 
    Open the chest to get a Key. From here, go north for two rooms. In the next 
    room, destroy the cracked block with a bomb, then open the next chest to get 
    another Key. Then, jump over the small area of deep water to the left and 
    grab the winged hearts in the air if you want, otherwise leave the room. Go 
    back south for two rooms and west one to the room with the pit. Jump across 
    it and go up the steps, then head west into the next room. 
    
    Head south two rooms, west one, and south another one to the area with the 
    Spiked Beetles and Gel. Defeat them again and enter the east room, then 
    unlock the door and continue eastward. In that room, follow the path around 
    to the northern locked door. Defeat the Water Tektites along the way, then 
    unlock the door and go north for two rooms. When you arrive at the south end 
    of the pit room, jump across it and enter the north room. Use a Key on the 
    block to remove it, then push the block forward and head into the west area.
    
    Here, defeat the Gels when they appear, then go south two rooms and west two 
    rooms. Defeat the Peahats in the way and head into the north room where you 
    will find a chest and more enemies. Defeat them and open the chest if you 
    want to fight another Gel, otherwise continue into the northern room. In this 
    room, ignore the five tiles (this is a puzzle we will solve later) and Water 
    Tektites as you head east. In there, open the chest to get a Key.
    
    After that, backtrack through the last several rooms to the one with a locked 
    door to the north. Unlock that door and you will have to fight the Cue Ball 
    mini-boss. Attack its backside with your Sword until you defeat it. After 
    that, go into the next room. The blocks will move to block the exits, but if 
    you pull the switch in the corner to move the blocks away again. Then, 
    quickly go into the west room. Defeat the Gels and open the chest to receive 
    the Flippers, which allow you to swim in deep water!
    
    Now, go south into the next room. You will see five tiles here; step on each 
    one in the order they flash to open the door. Keep this in mind for the other 
    tile room we passed earlier, as well as the pattern. Anyway, go south one 
    room and swim through the deep water leading into the east room. There, 
    defeat the Gels and watch the Key fall through the hole to the floor below. 
    Head into the east room and defeat the enemies, then go down the stairs. Head 
    into the second basement room and dive into the water to retrieve the Key.
    
    Next, head back upstairs and continue west for two rooms. Push the block 
    ahead of you to reach the west side, and head into the west room. In the tile 
    room, you need to step on each tile in order. This order appears to be random 
    for each game, so you simply need to remember the order shown to you in the 
    room east and north of here. When you step on the tiles in order, some steps 
    will appear, so go down them into the basement.
    
    Down here, trigger the Spiked Thwomp to fall, then run past as it rises up to 
    reach the next room. Trigger the second one and get to the left side, then 
    equip Roc's Feather. Cause the Spiked Thwomp to fall again, then quickly 
    climb the ladder and jump onto it to reach the high ledge. Then, climb the 
    ladder to emerge in the room above. There, go south to the next room and open 
    the chest to get the Nightmare's Key.
    
    Now, go north and drop off the ledge to reach the lower area. Then, go into 
    the east room. Swim across to the middle platform and step on the switch to 
    open the door, and enter that room (if you want, you can go east and north 
    one screen to reach a chest containing 50 rupees; there is a similar chest in 
    the room south of the earlier pit room). Anyway, go forward and use a Key to 
    remove the block, giving you access to the stairs, so go down them.
    
    In the entire basement area, just go left while defeating the Cheep Cheeps if 
    you want, then go up the ladder at the end into a new room. Here, just go 
    west to the following room and push the block in front of you forward. Then, 
    defeat the Gels if you want before entering the boss room to the north. You 
    will see some stairs in here, so go down them to enter a basement area. Dive 
    into the water and go down to meet the Angler Fish boss! Read the Bosses 
    section for help on beating it.
    
    After you beat it, take the Heart Container and go up out of the water and go 
    up the ladders to the room above. Now, just go north into the next room and 
    take the Surf Harp, completing the dungeon!
    
    
    =========
    Overworld
    =========
    
    After you get warped back outside of the Angler's Tunnel, go into the deep 
    water with the Flippers and swim left one screen and enter the cave there. 
    Swim up to the large fish there and when it asks if you have an Ocarina, say 
    yes and it'll teach you a new song, "Manbo's Mambo". This will be song #2 on 
    your Ocarina. After you learn it, exit the cave and swim east for four 
    screens to find another cave. In there, dive in the water to find a Piece of 
    Heart.
    
    Exit the cave and go back west three screens to the dungeon entrance. Go down 
    the stairs nearby and head through the cave to emerge on dry land. When you 
    emerge, go west one screen and step into the warp to return to the Animal 
    Village. Once you get there, go east a screen and you will find that a ghost 
    is now following you around. So, head north into the village and go north and 
    west two screens to exit it.
    
    Outside of the village, go south two screens and west one to find a wooden 
    bridge. Jump into the water there and swim north one screen, then head west 
    two screens past the Catfish's Maw (we will return here soon). West of the 
    dungeon, go up the stairs onto dry land and continue southward for two 
    screens. Head west one screen and use the Pegasus Boots and Roc's Feather to 
    jump over the gap. Then, head west another screen to find the ghost's house. 
    Enter the house and the ghost will look around for a moment before asking you 
    to take it to its grave.
    
    Make your way north and west through the Toronbo Shores region, then 
    northward through Mabe Village and the Mysterious Woods. Get to the Witch's 
    Hut, then head west a screen and lift the rock blocking access to the stairs. 
    From there, go south a screen, then head west and north along the other path 
    to reach the grave. The ghost will tell you to look inside a jar in its house 
    before vanishing (it contains a Secret Seashell if you want to return). The 
    owl will make an appearance as well.
    
    Once the owl leaves, leave the grave area and head up the other set of 
    stairs. Lift the stone out of the way and head east one screen, then south 
    three screens. Head west a couple of screens to reach Mabe Village, and buy 
    the Bow at the shop for 980 rupees. If you don't have enough, fight enemies 
    to gain rupees, revisit past dungeons and open chests you may have skipped to 
    get more rupees quickly, or enter random caves throughout the world as many 
    of them have rupees in chests. You can even steal it, but I wouldn't 
    recommend that if you are trying to go for a no-death game, or don't want to 
    be called THIEF for the rest of the game.
    
    Anyhow, once you have the Bow, head back east to the warp portal in Ukuku 
    Prairie. Jump in to reach the Tal Tal Mountains portal. Jump into it again 
    and you will cycle over to the Animal Village region. Upon your arrival this 
    time, go east one, north two, and west two screens to exit the village once 
    more.
    
    Go south two screens and west one to find the wooden bridge, then jump into 
    the water. Swim north and west to reach the Catfish's Maw area once again. 
    This time, swim into the alcove at the southwest end of the rocky barrier, 
    then dive to find a hidden passage. Swim through that passage and defeat the 
    Cheep Cheeps along the way, and emerge at the other end. You will now be in 
    the middle area by the dungeon entrance, so go ahead and enter it.
    
    
    ======================
    Level 5: Catfish's Maw
    ======================
    
    NOTE: You must have the Bow at this point or you can not progress through
          this dungeon!
    
    From the start of this dungeon, go left two rooms while avoiding the enemies 
    in the second room. In the third room, defeat the four Keese and the Iron 
    Mask to open the west door, then go through the door into the next room. In 
    there, open the chest to get the Compass, then avoid the enemies and go down 
    the steps. Here, use Roc's Feather to jump from platform to platform quickly 
    through the couple of rooms in the basement. At the end, climb the ladder and 
    enter the next room.
    
    In the next room, defeat the four Stalfos and cut down all the coral blocks 
    until the whole room is clear. Then, push the top two blocks towards each 
    other so it forms a square, causing a Key to appear. Take it and go back down 
    the steps into the basement. Get through the side-scrolling areas by running 
    to the right on the ground, then climb the ladder at the end to exit. When 
    you emerge, defeat the two Iron Masks to open the door and enter the east 
    room.
    
    Here, use the Key on the north door and enter that room. In this room, just 
    run northward through it to reach the following room. There, defeat the three 
    Stalfos to open the door, then go through it into the following room. In this 
    room, you'll meet the Master Stalfos for the first time. Fight him by hitting 
    him with your Sword, then put a Bomb on the pile of bones to cause damage. 
    Continue that until he runs away. Then, continue right to the next room. 
    Here, don't even waste your time opening the chest unless you want to see 
    that it's empty and Master Stalfos stole what was inside.
    
    From here, go north into the next room. In that room, push the middle block 
    forward and go west to that room. Then, turn around and go back into the 
    previous room. Now, push the middle block to the right and go north into the 
    next room. Return to the previous room yet again and hit the floor switch to 
    open the east door. Then, push the block downward and enter the east room. 
    You will meet Master Stalfos for the second time. Attack him like you did 
    before until he flees, then exit the room.
    
    Push the middle block to the left and go up into that room. Jump over the 
    small pit and defeat the Hooded Stalfos and the Star, then continue north to 
    the following room. There, defeat the Sword Stalfos and Star if you want, 
    otherwise continue west into the next room. There, defeat the two Gels you 
    can reach, then lift up the pot in the middle area and walk along the blocks 
    to trigger another Gel on the other side of the room. Defeat it as well to 
    open the north door. Go into that room to face Master Stalfos for the third 
    time.
    
    Following that fight, go into the west room. Lift up the pots so you can 
    enter the room, then defeat the Stalfos and open the chest to get the Map. 
    Now, backtrack all the way to the room with the five blocks and the switch. 
    There, push the middle block downward and go west to the next room. Then, 
    reenter the room you just left and push the block to the right, and head into 
    the south room. When you arrive, simply go into the west room where you 
    fought Master Stalfos the first time. From here, go south three rooms. In the 
    room you end up at, defeat the enemies to open the door, and head west.
    
    In this room, go to the back and head down the stairs into the basement. Use 
    Roc's Feather to get through the basement rooms, then when you emerge, enter 
    the west room. You will face Master Stalfos for the fourth and final time. 
    Defeat him and pick up the Hook Shot he leaves behind! Now, backtrack to the 
    room with the four Keese and the Iron Mask (or as a shortcut, play Manbo's 
    Mambo on your Ocarina to be warped to the entrance of the dungeon, and head 
    west two rooms).
    
    When you get to this room, take the upper path back into the east room. Use 
    the Hook Shot on the chest to get across the gap, then open it to get 200 
    rupees. Hookshot back across the gap and leave the room, then go north into 
    the next room. Head west this time and avoid the Blade Traps, then defeat the 
    Iron Masks (you can use the Hook Shot to pull off their masks, making it 
    easier to kill them) to open the doors. Then, go into the north room. In 
    there, defeat the Gels and continue into the west room. Use the Hook Shot to 
    cross the pits with Blade Traps guarding them, and go into the room ahead. 
    Hook Shot over to the chest and open it to get a Key.
    
    After that, go back east for two rooms. In the room with the Gels, use the 
    Hook Shot on the small hook on the other side of the pit to stretch a bridge 
    for you to walk across. Go across and head into the north room. Use the Key 
    on the keyhole block, then go left into the room with the two Gohmas! When 
    their eyes open, shoot arrows into them to cause damage (this is why you need 
    the Bow). You can play the Ballad of the Wind Fish on the Ocarina to make 
    them open their eyes instantly. After you beat them both, exit the same way 
    you can in (lower-right path).
    
    Now, go south for two rooms, then east one. Continue into the north room and 
    defeat the Stalfos to open the door, then continue north and east one room 
    each. When you get to the empty chest room, go into the north room and push 
    the block ahead, then head west. Defeat the enemies if you want while dodging 
    the Blade Traps, and follow the watery path into the next room. You will see 
    a deep pool of water in the middle of this area. Dive into the middle of it 
    until you end up in a hidden basement room.
    
    Swim through the two basement rooms while defeating the Bloobers you come 
    across. At the end, climb the ladder to enter a new room. In there, use the 
    Hook Shot on the hook to expand a bridge for you, then go around and open the 
    chest to get the Nightmare's Key. Once you have that key, go back through the 
    basement area and emerge in the other room. Head south and east one room each 
    to reach the block room. Push the block to the right and enter the north room 
    from here.
    
    Jump over the first gap, then get onto the small ledge directly across from 
    the chest on the other side of the pit. Use the Hook Shot to get across, and 
    open the chest to get 50 rupees. Next, go into the east room and Hook Shot 
    over to another chest. Open it to get a Key. Hook Shot back across and exit 
    the room, then Hook Shot the hook to extend a bridge over the north pit. 
    Cross it and open that chest to get another 50 rupees. Once you do that, play 
    Manbo's Mambo on the Ocarina to return to the dungeon entrance.
    
    Back at the entrance, walk into the warp to be brought to where you beat the 
    Gohmas. Then, take the upper-right path to the next room, and go down the 
    steps to enter the basement. Climb down the ladder and go ahead into the 
    second room. There, look above you and use the Hook Shot on the statue head 
    to get pulled onto the high ledge. Continue up the ladder and enter the new 
    room above.
    
    In this room, use the Key on the keyhole block to remove it, then go north 
    and around the blocks. Hook Shot across the gap and enter the next room. 
    Unlock the boss room and go in to meet the Slime Eel. Read the Bosses section 
    for information on beating it. After you beat it, take the Heart Container 
    and enter the next room, then go up and take the Wind Marimba!
    
    
    =========
    Overworld
    =========
    
    After you're back outside of the Catfish's Maw, swim down to the rocks, then 
    into the southwest corner. Dive into the water to reach the underwater 
    passageway; swim through it and emerge at the other side of the rocks. From 
    here, go east one screen and north two, then climb onto dry land via the 
    bottom steps.
    
    From here, go east a screen and north for two more. Continue east for two 
    screens and you will meet the owl once again. It will point you to the 
    southern shrine first, which is where we are heading. So, head east for two 
    more screens, then head southward. Since this area is infested with Armos 
    statues, be sure to follow my directions EXACTLY as I say them in order to 
    get through this area easily. For now, just go straight ahead to the southern 
    area. Turn right and defeat the Gels as you head to the southmost area, and 
    follow the path westward.
    
    In the next area, go all the way west to the barrier and turn northward. Take 
    out your Shield and hold it in front of you as you bounce the Armos statue to 
    the left out of the way, allowing you to progress (if you don't use the 
    shield, you have to fight it). Continue into the next screen, then head north 
    from there. At the path split, go left and use the Shield to move the Armos 
    statues there. Once you get through, continue south and west one screen each. 
    Use the Shield to push aside the last few Armos Knights, then continue 
    northward to the Southern Shrine.
    
    
    ===============
    Southern Shrine
    ===============
    
    Inside here, When you enter the southern shrine, go up into the next room and 
    be prepared to fight the Armos Knight! Equip Roc's Feather on one button and 
    the Bow to the other and you'll be set to fight. Wait until it starts to 
    move, then attack it. Beat it by shooting it repeatedly with your arrows. 
    Jump with the feather when the knight jumps and stomps on the ground. After 
    shooting it around 12 times, it'll be defeated and you'll get the Face Key! 
    Since it's unnecessary to enter the following room (unless you want to know 
    more about the story), just go back down a couple rooms and back outside 
    again.
    
    
    =========
    Overworld
    =========
    
    Back outside, backtrack through the maze of Armos statues until you reach the 
    area with the flying bomb-throwing enemy and Tektites. Once there, go west a 
    screen and equip the Power Bracelet. Defeat the Tektites, then lift the 
    stones and head northward to the next area. Lift the single stone to the left 
    and cut down more bushes, then lift some more stones to continue westward. 
    Then, continue west to find stairs leading into the water (if you bomb the 
    wall, you can find a Fairy Fountain if you want health recovery).
    
    Go down the southern steps into the water and swim south one screen. Get onto 
    the island and touch the left Armos statue to activate it. Kill it with a 
    single arrow, then go down the steps to enter a secret passage. Down there, 
    go through the water and defeat the Sharks to reach the second room. Hook 
    Shot across the large gap and exit the cave to the north. On the new ledge, 
    go around the corner to the next screen. Approach the keyhole and you will 
    use the Face Key to open the shrine's entrance above. Go around and head up 
    the stairs, then enter the Face Shrine.
    
    
    ====================
    Level 6: Face Shrine
    ====================
    
    Starting off, go into the west room. In there, follow the left path into the 
    north room. Defeat the Mini Moldorm if you want, otherwise continue north and 
    west to a room with a crystal switch. Here, defeat the Mask Mimic here, then 
    place a Bomb next to the crystal switch and run behind the upper-right 
    lowered block. When the switch is triggered, the blocks will rise and you 
    should be behind the upper-right one, so continue into the north room.
    
    In here, bomb the eastern wall between the wall lamps and you will reveal a 
    hidden passage. Enter the darkened room, and defeat the four Gels inside. 
    When the enemies are all defeated, stairs will appear, so go into the 
    basement. Make your way through both rooms while avoiding the Giant Bubbles 
    floating around. Climb up the ladder at the end and you will be in a room 
    with lowered blocks (thanks to the crystal switch).
    
    In here, defeat the Mini Moldorm and two Wizzrobes (use Bomb Arrows to defeat 
    them easily). When the door opens, go into the north room. Open the chest on 
    the ledge to receive the Level 2 Power Bracelet, which allows you to lift 
    heavier and larger objects! The pot on the opposite ledge hides a fairy if 
    you want it. Anyway, lift the large statues and head through the one-way door 
    to proceed.
    
    Back in the crystal switch room, hit the crystal switch again to lower the 
    blocks. Place a Bomb by the switch and hide behind the upper-left block, then 
    when the blocks are raised by the switch, go into the north room. On the west 
    side this time, lift the pots to reveal a floor switch; step on it to open 
    the door, then enter the west room. Defeat the three Wizzrobes in here with 
    Bomb Arrows to make a chest appear. Open it to receive the Map. Then, head 
    into the north room. Defeat the Gels, then pick up a pot and throw it at the 
    locked door to open it, and enter that room.
    
    In the next room, simply continue into the eastern room ahead. Open the chest 
    to get the Compass, then defeat the Star and go up the stairs. Hit the 
    crystal switch in the corner, then follow the path going east and south into 
    a new room. Continue east for two rooms, then north one room. You will arrive 
    in a room where the blocks are lowered (if not, then go back and hit the 
    crystal switch again). In there, defeat the Wizzrobes and grab the Key that 
    appears.
    
    After that, backtrack to the chest where you found the Compass. Then, go into 
    the west room again. Pick up one of the large statues and throw it at the 
    north door to open it, and enter that room. Open the chest on the ledge to 
    get 100 rupees. If you need a Secret Seashell, go up the stairs to exit the 
    shrine and end up on an island in the Rapids Ride. Open the chest there to 
    get the shell (or 20 rupees if you have the L-2 Sword). Back in the room, 
    play Manbo's Mambo to return to the dungeon's entrance.
    
    This time, head into the eastern room. Get through the room while avoiding 
    the Blade Traps and throwing away the large statues as needed. In the room 
    ahead, destroy all of the Flying Tiles as they uproot from the floor, and 
    enter the north room when the door opens. There, take a statue and throw it 
    at the east door to open it, then enter the room. Defeat the Wizzrobes in 
    here, then head into the next room to the north.
    
    Make your way north for three rooms, and open the chest you reach to get a 
    Key. With it, backtrack through the last several rooms until you reach the 
    room with a locked door to the north. Use the Key to unlock it, and enter 
    that room. Defeat the Gels in that room, then bomb the north wall to find a 
    hidden path. In that next room, you will face the Smasher mini-boss. Avoid 
    getting hit by the orb it throws, then pick it up and throw it to damage the 
    enemy.
    
    Once you defeat the mini-boss, grab the fairy and note the warp, then enter 
    the north room. There are two statues in this room; lift up the left one and 
    go down the stairs that are revealed. In the basement, use Roc's Feather to 
    get across the rooms, then climb up the ladder at the end to emerge in a new 
    room above. There, get to a plain section of floor and destroy the Flying 
    Tiles as they appear. When they are gone, jump over the pits and grab the Key 
    that appears. Use it on the keyhole block, and enter the north room.
    
    Grab the winged Bombs, then throw the large statue at the door to open it. In 
    the room ahead, there are two horse heads you can throw around. Toss them 
    around until both are standing upright to open the next door. Go into the 
    west room and head down the stairs to reach another basement segment. Use the 
    Pegasus Boots to get through both Thwomp-filled rooms safely. When you climb 
    into the new room at the end, play the Ballad of the Wind Fish to defeat the 
    three Pols Voices. Then, enter the room to the south.
    
    In this room, defeat the Dodongo Snakes using Bombs, then enter the west 
    room. Go north to the edge and Hook Shot across to the other ledge. Unlock 
    the keyhole block and continue north for two rooms. At the last room, lift up 
    a pot and throw it at the chest to open it, getting you the Nightmare's Key. 
    With it, play Manbo's Mambo to return to the entrance. Once htere, step into 
    the warp to reach the mini-boss room again.
    
    Here, go north to the next room and lift the left statue to reveal stairs. Go 
    down them to reach the basement, and get through it like before. When you 
    emerge in the Flying Tile room, head into the south room. There, go around 
    the room to make four Gels appear. Allow them to get sucked into the pit by 
    the Vacuum Mouth, then go through the east door when it opens. In the next 
    room, push the lower block to the right and use a Bomb Arrow to kill the 
    Wizzrobe across the pit.
    
    After that, jump over the pit and push the left block forward to reach the 
    door. In the north room, use Magic Powder to light the two unlit lanterns, 
    causing the door to turn the Sparks into fairies! Recover your health, then 
    enter the boss room ahead. You will meet Fašade inside; read the Bosses 
    section of this guide for information on beating this boss. After you beat 
    it, take the Heart Container and enter the last room to obtain the Coral 
    Triangle, which is the sixth Instrument!
    
    
    =========
    Overworld
    =========
    
    Outside, go south a screen and you will see the owl again. After it leaves, 
    continue down the steps and jump into the water below. Swim west one screen 
    and go up the steps there, then continue west for two more screens. From 
    there, go north one screen, west one, south one, and west one screen each. 
    Continue through the next several screens until you reach the warp portal 
    near Mabe Village. From that point, go west one and south two screens. You 
    will see some pits blocking access ahead. Use the Pegasus Boots and Roc's 
    Feather to jump over the gap, then read the nearby sign once. After you do 
    that, go south and enter the Signpost Maze (make sure you have 300 rupees).
    
    This enclosed four-screen area comprises the Signpost Maze. There are signs 
    all around, but you must read them in a specific order to solve the maze. 
    Each sign will give you a direction to move in, and the idea is that you must 
    move directly from that sign in the designated direction to reach the next 
    sign. Reading the wrong sign will force you to start from the beginning by 
    the pits. Please consult my Signpost Maze Map, found at GameFAQs, to get 
    through this area easily:
    
    http://db.gamefaqs.com/portable/gbcolor/file/zelda_dx_signpost.gif
    
    After you get to the last sign and read it, a staircase will appear nearby. 
    Take it into an underground chamber, and walk towards the large frog named 
    Mamu (it resembles Wart from SMB2 for those of you who remember). It'll start 
    talking to you and offer to play its song only if you pay it 300 rupees. Pay 
    it, listen to the song, then after it's finished, you'll learn the Frog's 
    Song of Soul (the third song on your Ocarina)! Then, go back up the steps to 
    get back outside.
    
    Now, go north two screens to the scene with the large pit. Jump over it like 
    before, then continue north to the following screen. Lift up the stones, then 
    cut down the bushes and go west to Mabe Village. Back in the village, 
    continue west for two screens to find the weather vane. Push it to the north 
    to reveal some stairs; go down them and enter the second room to find some 
    bones on a ledge. Stand in front of the bones and play the Frog's Song of 
    Soul on the Ocarina to revive the Flying Rooster!
    
    Now that you have the Rooster, you can use the Power Bracelet to pick it up 
    and fly around, allowing access across very wide gaps with no points to Hook 
    Shot onto. Anyway, when you are outside, play Manbo's Mambo to warp to 
    Manbo's Pond next to Crazy Tracy's Health Spa (you can buy Secret Medicine 
    here).
    
    When you reach the pond, go east one, north two, and west one screen. Lift 
    the stones in the way, then take the upper path east a screen. Continue ahead 
    for one more screen, then go up the stairs to reach the northern screen. The 
    owl will appear yet again, so listen to what it has to say. When it leaves, 
    lift the stones and enter the first cave there. Make your way through the 
    cave like you did earlier in the game, using the Pegasus Boots and Sword to 
    dash through the crystal blocks.
    
    Take the eastern exit out of the cave, then when you are back outside, head 
    east several screens until you reach the deep water. Swim over to the stairs 
    and follow them to the northern screen. At the top, go west across the bridge 
    for two screens. You will come to another cave and a building in the top area 
    (this is the Hen House). Enter the cave there.
    
    Inside, follow the path into the second room. Then, get to the lower-left 
    corner of the room and use the Rooster to reach the northern exit from the 
    room. In the following room, use the Rooster to get across the large pit to 
    the west end. Then, go to the next room and grab the Bird Key from the 
    platform. With that done, simply jump into one of the holes and you will end 
    up back outside a few screens away!
    
    When you land, head east for three screens, crossing the deep portion, and 
    enter the cave at the end. In here, simply make your way through the cave to 
    the other end and exit (if you want to find a Secret Seashell and more 
    rupees, there is a dry patch in the first room; bomb the north wall and go 
    through the rooms to end up outside on a ledge where the shell would be).
    
    Anyway, when you exit the cave normally, head east one screen and go up the 
    stairs to reach another cave. Get through that straightforward cave as well, 
    then when you exit, go west and enter another cave. Go through the first 
    room, then head up the stairs and follow the upper path southward. At the end 
    of the path, Hook Shot across the gap and continue south to exit the cave. 
    When you emerge, defeat the Tektite and bomb the cracked wall to reveal a 
    Fairy Fountain if you want. Otherwise, go into the northeast cave.
    
    Make your way through the cave and you will emerge at the top of the 
    mountains at last. Go west a screen and you will see a tower with a keyhole 
    nearby. Lift the stones out of the way and use the Bird Key to rotate the 
    tower, revealing an entrance. Then, go inside the tower to start Level 7!
    
    
    ======================
    Level 7: Eagle's Tower
    ======================
    
    Starting off, go east for two rooms. avoiding the Blade Traps in the second 
    room. Defeat the Like Likes in the corner room to get a Key, then unlock the 
    door to continue northward. In the next room, simply go up the stairs to 
    level 2F. There, go into the north room and you will see an orb. This will 
    play an important role for most of this dungeon, so equip the Power Bracelet. 
    When you pick up the orb, keep the button pressed and go to the upper-right 
    corner, then pull the lever back to separate the blocks. Then, run into the 
    west room through the opening. Defeat the Gels, then throw the orb at the 
    first column to destroy it.
    
    After that, grab the orb and throw it across the raised blocks to the south 
    area. As for yourself, jump diagonally over the pits to the lower-right 
    corner and enter the south room. Go around to the west side and back to the 
    previous room, and take the orb with you. In the south room again, throw the 
    orb at the second column to clear it. Next, take the orb and carry it into 
    the southern room. Throw it over the barrier to the outer area, then hit the 
    crystal switch.
    
    Once you hit the switch, play Manbo's Mambo to return to the entrance. This 
    time, go east two rooms and take the right doorway into the north room as you 
    did before. Continue north and up the stairs to 2F again. This time, the 
    blocks will be lowered thanks to the crystal switch, so open the chest to get 
    the larger Mirror Shield. Next, go south and stand on the lowered blocks, 
    then trigger the crystal switch to raise the blocks. While standing on the 
    raised blocks, go into the south room.
    
    In this room, go past the keyhole block and enter the following room to where 
    you left the orb earlier. Leave the orb here for now and continue up the 
    stairs to 3F. There, head north and east a room each to meet the Grim Creeper 
    mini-boss. Defeat the six Big Keese he summons and he will retreat, leaving a 
    warp behind. From here, continue into the next room. Push the two blocks 
    together to make a chest appear; open it to get the Nightmare's Key.
    
    Now, backtrack through the last few rooms and head back downstairs to 2F. 
    Pick up the orb and go into the west room. Here, drop the orb and beat the 
    Three-of-a-Kinds to make a chest appear. Pick up the orb and continue to the 
    next room. Throw the orb on the ground and fight the Hinox (if the orb falls, 
    it will end up in its initial position in the room north of where you found 
    the Mirror Shield; if you fall, you'll simply land on 1F so backtrack here 
    via the warp). After you beat the Hinox, grab the Key and take the orb into 
    the north room.
    
    In here, carry the orb northward through the one-day door to proceed. In 
    there, throw the orb into the corner and defeat the Flying Tiles. Also, 
    defeat the Anti-Fairy with some Magic Powder (it will turn into a Fairy). 
    When the door opens, grab the orb and head east. There, throw the orb at the 
    third column to destroy it. Then, push the block to the right into the pit 
    and throw the orb across to the other side.
    
    Now, look at the south wall and you'll see two torches; place a Bomb between 
    them to reveal a hidden passage. Go into the south room and bomb the next 
    wall as well. Continue into the next room and Hook Shot across the pit to the 
    chest. Open it to get 20 rupees. Since the chest will no longer disappear 
    (this is why you must kill the Three-of-a-Kinds before), drop into the pit to 
    land on 1F. You will land back at the entrance; go east two rooms and north 
    two rooms to the stairs, and go back up to 2F.
    
    Back up here, go into the north room and pull the lever back to move the 
    blocks apart, then continue into the west room. Jump across the pits to the 
    lower-right corner, and continue south for two rooms. Hit the crystal switch 
    in the southernmost room, then go back north a room. Take the upper-left path 
    into the north room ahead. Push the block to the north and enter the west 
    room, where you will find the orb you threw across the pit earlier.
    
    Take the orb and go back into the east room, and push the block ahead to 
    escape. Continue south for two rooms, and throw the orb over the barrier by 
    the crystal switch so you can retrieve it at the other side. Now, hit the 
    crystal switch again, then play Manbo's Mambo to warp to the entrance of the 
    tower. Once you get there, step into the warp to get to 3F. From there, go 
    west and south a room and go down the stairs to 2F.
    
    Back in the room with the orb, grab it and enter the west room. Get to the 
    edge by the pit and throw the orb directly across the pit to the other side. 
    Once it lands on the other end, go west one room and north two rooms. Defeat 
    the Flying Tiles and Anti-Fairy, then go into the east room. Head south 
    through the passage you bombed open earlier, then Hook Shot across to the 
    chest. Grab the orb and enter the north room, and throw it at the final 
    column. It will cause the top floor of the tower to come crashing down, 
    replacing the existing 3F.
    
    Now, play Manbo's Mambo and return to the dungeon entrance. Step into the 
    warp and you will return to 3F. Go into the west room and you will find that 
    the middle area of this floor has been changed. So, continue into the next 
    room to the west and defeat the Goombas there (if you jump on them, they will 
    drop hearts). After that, unlock the boss door to the north and enter that 
    room. Go up the steps and Hook Shot across to the right side of the room. 
    Then, follow the path south and east to some stairs.
    
    Go up those stairs and you will be outside of the tower. Climb the ladder and 
    you will encounter the Grim Creeper again, who will be picked up by the Evil 
    Eagle. You then face the Evil Eagle in battle, so read the Bosses section for 
    help winning. Once you win, take the Heart Container and climb back down the 
    ladder, and go back inside. Now, drop down to the lower ledge to the right 
    and into the now open room to claim the Organ of Evening Calm!
    
    
    =========
    Overworld
    =========
    
    Now that you're outside of the Eagle's Tower, walk straight down and fall off 
    the edge of the cliff. You'll fall into a pit on the next screen, then land 
    in an area of deep water at the bottom of the mountain range. Swim out of the 
    cave and go south one screen, then go up the steps onto the dry land. If you 
    go north and Hook Shot across to the east side, you can enter a building and 
    ride the rapids on a raft if you want.
    
    Anyway, head all the way west until you reach some stairs, then go up them. 
    Go west and lift the stone in the way, then continue north and west one 
    screen each. You should see some stairs leading northward, so go up them to 
    the next screen. Lift the stones out of the way, and enter the cave there. 
    Get through the cave, then dash through the crystal blocks to reach the far 
    eastern exit. Back outside, go east one screen and head down the steps, then 
    continue east for three screens.
    
    There, jump into the deep water and head up the long set of stairs to the 
    north area. Cross the bridge and head west two screens, then head up the 
    steps to end up in front of the Hen House. From here, go west a screen and 
    you will find Marin stuck on the middle of the broken bridge. Hook Shot 
    across to pull her across, then Tarin will call to her and she will leave. 
    Following this, the owl will appear and talk to you briefly. Once he leaves, 
    go west to the next screen and cut down the bush, then enter the passage.
    
    Inside the cave, drop off the ledge and head into the west room (if you bomb 
    the southernmost wall, you can reveal a passage leading to a Piece of Heart). 
    Drop down to the lower ledge and head down the stairs to reach the next area. 
    There, go ahead and use the Hook Shot to cross the wide gap, then continue 
    out of the cave.
    
    You will now have to deal with falling boulders for the western segment of 
    the Tal Tal Mountains. Make your way along the path going west, then up the 
    steps and back east before going up more steps. On the upper plateau, go west 
    and open a chest to get 50 rupees. If you lift the nearby stone, you can 
    enter a room and sprinkle Magic Powder in the hole to awaken a Mad Batter, 
    who will increase your arrow-carrying capacity. After that, go west a screen 
    and drop down to the southern area below.
    
    When you land, go around the corner and bomb the cracked wall to open up a 
    cave. Enter it and continue into the second room, where you will find a 
    flame-shooting device in the wall blocking your progress. Hold the Mirror 
    Shield up and walk through the flames, then continue out of the cave. Back 
    outside, continue all the way west through the next several areas until you 
    reach the stone turtle. Play the Frog's Song of Soul (#3 on the Ocarina) to 
    make the head come to life and attack. Hit it repeatedly with your Sword to 
    kill it, then enter the cave, which is Turtle Rock.
    
    
    ====================
    Level 8: Turtle Rock
    ====================
    
    From where you begin, go straight up the hall to the following room. Here, 
    use Roc's Feather and the Sword to defeat the elusive Winged Demon and unlock 
    the doors. Then, enter the west room. In this room, defeat the Snake Ropes 
    while avoiding the laser eye that shoots lasers at you. Then, go north 
    through the door into the next room. Defeat the Hinox in this room like you 
    have many times in the past dungeons, then take the small Fairy that appears 
    and go west into the next room.
    
    In this room, you'll see a weird block in front of you; walk into it to get 
    it moving. Let it go all the way left, then down until it stops, then walk 
    along the path going into the south room. Here, jump over the small gap and 
    avoid the Sparks, then open the chest to get 50 rupees. Now, jump back over 
    the gap and go into the west room, where you'll fight the Rolling Bones mini-
    boss. Defeat it by jumping over the spiked log it pushes towards you then hit 
    it repeatedly with your Sword.
    
    After it's defeated and the doors open, go north into the next room. Defeat 
    the Winged Demon flying around, then take the Key that falls from above. Now, 
    play Manbo's Mambo to warp to the entrance of Turtle Rock. When you arrive 
    there, go north to the following room and jump over to the northern platform, 
    then head into the next room. Here, simply go east to the next room and you 
    will find another of those blocks that create tiles as it moves. Stand 
    directly below it and push it to move, then let it go across to the north 
    side and stop. Then, walk across the new path and jump over the lava to the 
    ledge to the left, and go north to the next room.
    
    Here, head west to the connecting room and go down the steps there into the 
    basement (if you bomb the cracked wall and go into the south room, you can 
    push the blocks around to reach the chest containing the Map). In the 
    basement, jump from ledge to ledge to the other side of the screen. Be sure 
    to jump when the fireballs aren't coming up out of the lava; one way to avoid 
    them is to jump as they drop into the lava again.
    
    In the next area of this basement floor, jump and grab onto the small ladder, 
    then go right along them while avoiding the Podoboos that come from the lava 
    below. Climb the ladder at the end to enter the room above. There, lift up 
    the pots throughout the room and throw them at the snake enemies. If you miss 
    with the pots, just attack them with the sword. Open the chest in the room to 
    get the Stone Slab, then go north to the next room.
    
    Here, you'll have to fight the mini-boss, Smasher. Defeat it by throwing the 
    orb it throws around back at it. Repeat that process until it's defeated, 
    then take the Fairy that appears and go west into the next room. Here, you'll 
    find another one of those tile-making blocks. This time you have to push it 
    around so it covers up ALL the gaps in the floor. Get to the right side of 
    the box and push it to get it going, then have it move in the following path:
    
    Left 2, up 1, left 1, up 1, left 1, up 1, left 2, down 1, right 2, down 1, 
    right 1, down 1, right 1, down 1, right 1, down 1, right 1, up 1, right 1, 
    down 1, and right 1.
    
    A Key will appear upon completion of this puzzle; take it and play Manbo's 
    Mambo to return to the dungeon entrance. When you get back there, head north 
    for two rooms. Head east to the room with the tile-making block. Push that 
    block upward to make it move, then let it go up three spaces, right two, and 
    up one (so the path ends between the two blocks at the north end). When it 
    stops, walk along this path you made. When you get to the blocks, push the 
    one to the right into the lava, then continue north to the next room.
    
    Here, go up and use a Key on the keyhole block, then go east to the next 
    room. Go right through this room and defeat the Winged Demon if you want, 
    then unlock the door with your Key and go into the next room. Here, use Roc's 
    Feather to help avoid the Blade Traps, then go through the one-way door to 
    the north. In the next room, walk around and defeat the four Gels hiding in 
    the room. After you beat them all, the north door will open, so head into 
    that room. 
    
    In there, go up to the area with the cracked floor and defeat the Gibdos 
    while constantly moving around to avoid falling through the floor. Also, jump 
    in the air and grab the winged Magic Powder and hearts. Then, take the Key 
    that appears and go around the blocks and go west to the next room. Here, 
    avoid the Dodongo Snakes and continue into the next room to the west. In this 
    room, jump over the lava-filled gap and stand on the middle platform. Defeat 
    the Gels as you jump across the lava, and unlock the western door before 
    entering that room.
    
    Head around the barrier blocking the boss room and continue ahead. In the 
    next room, defeat the enemies and go up the steps to end up on a ledge 
    outside of the dungeon. Out there, defeat a Mini Moldorm and a Crow, then 
    climb the steps and take a Piece of Heart. Then, continue east for two 
    screens to find another cave. Go back into the dungeon via that cave, and you 
    will now be on the ledge above the Dodongo Snakes. Defeat them by throwing 
    Bombs downward when you line up with them properly. When both are defeated, 
    open the chest on the ledge to get a Key.
    
    Now, go west to the next room and drop off the high ledge. Then, continue 
    west for two rooms until you reach the room with the stairs leading outside. 
    From there, go south to the next room and take out the Bow. Shoot an arrow at 
    the cyclops statue's eye to make a Key appear. Take it and go west into the 
    next room. In this room, walk around and stand right next to the chest on its 
    left side. Push the block in front of you downward, and then push the one to 
    the right of you to the right. Now, open the chest to get a Key. After that, 
    play Manbo's Mambo on the Ocarina to warp to the entrance of Turtle Rock.
    
    Once you get there, go north a couple of rooms, then go east one. You'll be 
    in the room with the tile-making block. Push it upward to get it moving, then 
    make it go up only one square before having it turn right for the rest of the 
    journey. When it stops in the lower-right corner, walk along the path and 
    head into the east room. Go straight to the wall and place a Bomb there. When 
    it explodes and another passage opens, take it into that room and hit the 
    crystal switch in that room. Then, play Manbo's Mambo again to warp to the 
    level's entrance.
    
    Now that you're back at the entrance, go north two and east one room to the 
    tile-making block. Move it up three, right two, up one (between the two 
    northern blocks). Follow that path to the end and push the right block into 
    the lava, and continue into the north room. Next, go east for two rooms, then 
    through the one-way door into the following room. Here, defeat some Gels, 
    then bomb the west wall to open up a hidden path. Enter that darkened room 
    and use Magic Powder in the nearby lantern to partially light the room, then 
    jump across the pit. Defeat the Gels over there and unlock the keyhole block, 
    then enter the next room.
    
    Here, you will find another dark room to navigate. Just go up and left, and 
    defeat a Snake Rope. Then, follow the path into the west room. Here, simply 
    go up the steps and use the Key on the keyhole block, then head east up 
    there. In that room, go right and light a lantern with Magic Powder. Now that 
    you can see, use the Hook Shot on a block towards the bottom of the screen to 
    be pulled to the other ledge. Then, use your last Key and go down the steps.
    
    In this section of the basement, wait until the platform moves as far to the 
    left as possible, then jump onto it. Ride it to the right and jump over the 
    small ledge halfway across the lava. Also, avoid the Podoboos that come out 
    of the lava as well. Jump onto the ledge to the right and enter the next 
    room. Here, jump across the moving platforms, and then go up the ladder into 
    the next room.
    
    Out here, drop off the ledge and go down into the next room to fight Blaino, 
    the new mini-boss. Use your Sword and the spinning attack to defeat it 
    easily; be careful though since if it winds up and punches you, you will be 
    sent back to the dungeon entrance! After you win, go into the north room and 
    open the chest to receive the Magic Rod. Now, go back to the room where you 
    fought Blaino and enter the warp to get to the dungeon's entrance again.
    
    Once there, go north to the next room. Defeat the Winged Demon, and then go 
    west into the next room. Here, beat the snakes to open the door; go through 
    it to fight Hinox. Beat it, and then go west to the next room. Push the block 
    left until you can move it up. At that point, move it up and go into the 
    north room. Here, defeat the Snake Ropes, then take out the Magic Rod and use 
    it to light the two out-of-reach lanterns to make a chest appear. Open it to 
    get a Key.
    
    Now, backtrack a few rooms back to the second room where you saw the Winged 
    Demon. From there, go north and east one room each to reach the tile-making 
    block. Push it up one square and then all the way right to the corner. Follow 
    the path along and go up the southern stairs, and go up the steps to reach a 
    basement room. Use the Magic Rod to melt the ice, then defeat the Goombas and 
    enter the second room. Here, jump with Roc's Feather and use the Magic Rod to 
    melt ONLY the second row of ice. Then, jump onto the bottom ice row and head 
    down the ladder to exit the room.
    
    In this room, go down and unlock the door with your final Key and enter that 
    room to fight Cue Ball. Beat it like you did in the Angler's Tunnel, then go 
    into the north room. Here's another room with that annoying tile-making 
    block. Here, follow my directions EXACTLY and you'll do it all correctly. 
    Start by getting below the block, then push it upward:
    
    Up 3, right 2, down 1, right 1, up 1, right 2, down 2, left 4, down 2, right 
    1, up 1, right 1, down 1, right 1, down 1, right 1.
    
    If done correctly, a chest should appear in the right side of the room; open 
    it to get the Nightmare's Key. Now, play Manbo's Mambo yet again to warp to 
    the entrance. When you get there, go north two and east one room to the tile-
    making block room. Push it upward so it moves, then let it go up one square 
    and all the way right. Walk right along this path to the next room and go up 
    the steps in the northeast corner.
    
    The first thing to do here is climb up to the top of the ladder, then melt 
    the ice directly to the left of your position. Then, go left to the wall and 
    shoot upward to melt the ice there above you. Next, jump up and shoot to the 
    left to melt the row of ice. Jump onto the ledge and take a step to the left. 
    Shoot downward with the Magic Rod to melt the ice and kill a Goomba below!
    
    When you land on the lower platform, go left to the wall and then shoot up at 
    the other vertical row of ice. Next, jump up and shoot to the right to melt 
    some more ice. Now, go right and jump onto the ice block that I didn't tell 
    you to melt. Go right to the wall, then go left and jump in the air and shoot 
    the ice block to the left with the Magic Rod. Then, jump across to the ledge 
    and enter the second room.
    
    Here, climb down the ladder to the floor below and shoot the Magic Rod to the 
    left to melt the bottom row of ice. Then, stand below the second column of 
    ice from the right and shoot upward to melt it. Now, climb back up the ladder 
    and fall onto the lone ice cube next to it. Then, jump left to the steps that 
    the ice blocks make and continue to the ladder. Climb down it to reach the 
    next room. There, simply unlock the boss door and go into the room to meet 
    Hothead. Read the Bosses section for help on beating Hothead.
    
    After you beat it, take the Heart Container and go up into the next room and 
    take the Thunder Drum, the final Instrument!

    Overworld
    =========
    
    Now that you've pretty much completed all of the game's objectives, the only 
    thing left is to go to the Wind Fish's Egg for the final showdown. If you 
    didn't do it already, you can go find the game's secret item, the Boomerang 
    (see the Secrets section for help). Aside from that, to get to the Wind 
    Fish's Egg, first play Manbo's Mambo to reach Manbo's Pond.
    
    Once there, use the Power Bracelet and lift up the stone next to the pond, 
    and go west to the next screen. Then, jump over the pits with Roc's Feather 
    and go north one screen, then east one and north one more. Lift the stones to 
    reach the upper area, then go east to the next area. Go up the steps you see 
    to reach the northern area. If you didn't come here earlier, the owl will 
    appear. After he leaves, go up the stairs to the Wind Fish's Egg itself. Play 
    the Ballad of the Wind Fish on the Ocarina, and the eight Instruments will 
    cause a crack to appear in the egg, allowing you to enter. If you are ready, 
    go inside.
    
    
    ===============
    Wind Fish's Egg
    ===============
    
    Inside the dark egg, walk directly north to the next room. Here, just keep 
    walking and you'll fall into a pit. You'll land in a light room with four 
    different ways you can go. To find the way to go, you will need to read a 
    special book in the Library west of Mabe Village (the Magnifying Lens is 
    required). I will also list them here, though they can be found in the 
    Secrets section as well.
    
        Path 1: Left, Left, Up, Right, Right, Up, Left, Up
    
        Path 2: Left, Up, Right, Up, Left, Up, Right, Up
    
        Path 3: Right, Up, Up, Right, Up, Up, Right, Up
    
    At the end of the path that works for you, you'll come to a pit; drop into it 
    and prepare for the final showdown with the Nightmares! Read the Bosses 
    section for help with defeating each of the Nightmare Shadows. After you beat 
    them, you'll know what to do next. After that, congratulations, you just 
    completed Zelda: Link's Awakening!

    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    ========================
    Selectable Items/Weapons
    ========================
    
    Bomb: You can use this item to blow open holes in hollow walls or defeat many
          enemies. They are very common because you can buy them at the Shop in
          Mabe Village after you purchase the Shovel and enemies sometimes drop
          them when defeated.
    
    Boomerang: This has to be one of the strongest weapons in the game because of
               its power! You can only get it after you have the Magnifying
               Glass. You have to blow open a wall at Toronbo Shores and trade
               the item in your B button for it. (The Shovel should be the item
               that you trade for the Boomerang.)
    
    Bow and Arrow: This is a very useful weapon in the later stages of the game.
                   Unfortunately, it costs 980 rupees in the Mabe Village shop,
                   so you'll have to save up for this item and buy it before
                   entering the Catfish's Maw. You can also find/buy Arrows for
                   the Bow in the shop as well.
    
    Hookshot: This is another quite useful item/weapon, especially in the second
              half of the game! You find it in the Catfish's Maw dungeon. This
              item is helpful because you can shoot it at an object (pottery,
              rocks, chests, etc.) and pull yourself to it! You can also attack
              enemies by hitting them with it.
    
    Magic Powder: This special powder does quite mysterious things when used
                  during the game. You can sprinkle it into a darkened lantern to
                  light it up or sprinkle it on certain enemies to make them
                  transform! You can either get this for free by finding the
                  Sleepy Mushroom in the forest and bringing it to the witch in
                  the Witch's Hut, or by buying it in the Mabe Village shop.
    
    Magic Rod: The Magic Rod is definitely one of the most powerful items in the
               game. Too bad you get it in the last dungeon (Turtle Rock)! You
               can use it to burn the ice blocks throughout Turtle Rock or to
               scorch enemies with! You can also light distant lanterns with this
               item/weapon.
    
    Ocarina: This item has some important uses in the game. You find it in the
             Dream Shrine after obtaining the Pegasus Boots. You can learn 3
             different songs to play on the Ocarina, each with different
             purposes. I'll get into more detail about what each song does, as
             they're used throughout the game.
    
    Pegasus Boots: This is another quite useful item! You find it in the Key
                   Cavern and they allow you to run really fast! You also can use
                   these boots with the Sword to do a "hit-and-run" attack! They
                   have other uses, too, but you'll find them out soon enough.
    
    Power Bracelet: When you equip this item, you can lift up many things you
                    couldn't before! There are 2 different levels of this item:
                    level 1 is found in Bottle Grotto, and the level 2 one is
                    found in the Face Shrine dungeon. This item is definitely
                    essential to getting through the game!
    
    Roc's Feather: This really useful item, found in the Tail Cave, enables you
                   to jump in the air! You can use it to jump over small pits and
                   to reach the Winged Items floating in the air. This is
                   probably one of the most useful items you'll have in this
                   game!
    
    Shield: The Shield is your only protection against most enemy blows. You get
            it in the beginning of the game from Tarin, Marin's father. There are
            2 different shields: one is the normal one, and the other is the
            Mirror Shield, found in the Eagle's Tower, which can deflect much
            more than the regular shield can!
    
    Shovel: This is useful for finding secrets during the first half of the game,
            but becomes useless near the end. It can be bought from the Mabe
            Village shop for 200 rupees, and it can be used only to dig up hidden
            items in the ground.
    
    Sleepy Mushroom: This mushroom, which grows in the Mysterious Forest, can be
                     used to make Magic Powder. It has no real use except for
                     making Magic Powder, so I have nothing else to say about
                     this item.
    
    Sword: This is your primary weapon, which you should always have equipped!
           You find it washed up on Toronbo Shores and is your only means of
           attack in the early parts of the game! There are 2 different levels of
           strength of the sword: level 1 is the sword you find at Toronbo
           Shores, and you get the level 2 sword in the Seashell Mansion after
           collection 20 Secret Seashells!
    
    
    ================================
    Inventory (Non-selectable) Items
    ================================
    
    Flippers: These flippers are essential to getting through the watery sections
              of the game. You find them in the Angler's Cavern. To swim with
              them, hold the Control Pad in the direction you want to go. Press A
              to swim faster and press B to dive underwater for a short period of
              time.
    
    Golden Leaves: These golden leaves are located in Kanalet Castle and Richard,
                   the former prince of this castle, asks that you retrieve these
                   leaves for him. You have to find the leaves in the castle,
                   then bring them back to Richard and he'll open up a secret
                   passage leading to an item you need to continue through the
                   game.
    
    Secret Medicine: This special medicine is a useful item, especially in really
                     tough parts where you usually die. It refills all your
                     hearts when you lose them all! You can only buy this
                     medicine from Crazy Tracy in her house north of the Witch's
                     Hut. The price for this item is cheap though.
    
    Secret Seashells: These seashells are hidden throughout the island. There are
                      a total of 26 shells throughout the game, but you'll only
                      need to collect 20 of them. When you get 20, go to the
                      Seashell Mansion to get your level 2 Sword!
    
    
    =============
    Dungeon Items
    =============
    
    Compass: This item shows you the locations of all unopened chests in the
             dungeon you're in. It also makes a sound when you're in a room with
             a Key hidden inside.
    
    Map: The Map allows you to see all the rooms of that dungeon on the sub-menu.
         Darker colored boxes are rooms you haven't yet entered and lighter
         colored boxes are rooms you've been in.
    
    Nightmare Key: This key allows you to open the door leading to the boss of
                   that dungeon. Small Keys won't open the Nightmare door, so you
                   must have this key to open it!
    
    Small Key: You use these keys in the dungeons to unlock locked doors and
               blocks with keyholes on them. You get these keys by doing certain
               things in some rooms or find them in chests.
    
    Stone Slab/Fragment: The Stone Slab allows you to read a secret from the wall
                         when you find the slab Fragment and check the slab with
                         a hole in it in that dungeon. You can find the fragment
                         in a treasure chest in each dungeon and there are a
                         couple of slabs throughout the dungeon, too.
    
    
    ===========
    Other Items
    ===========
    
    Guardian Acorn: When you get this acorn, your defense power increases for a
                    period of time. You can keep its strength longer if enemies
                    don't hit you that much. If you do get hit a lot; its power
                    will wear off quicker!
    
    Heart: These small hearts recover 1 of your hearts. Enemies usually drop them
           when you defeat them, so they're not hard to find!
    
    Heart Containers/Pieces: You can get the Heart Containers, which adds a heart
                             to your maximum, by defeating the boss of each
                             dungeon. The Heart Pieces are a bit more difficult
                             to find, though. You can find them in many places
                             throughout the game, and when you collect 4 of them,
                             your maximum heart capacity increases by one. Read
                             the Heart Piece section of this guide to find out
                             where the Heart Pieces are located.
    
    Piece of Power: This flashing triangle, sometimes dropped by enemies, doubles
                    the strength of attacks with your sword. They run out after a
                    period of time just like the Guardian Acorn.
    
    Rupee: The currency of Koholint Island and all of the other Zelda games. You
           find them after defeating enemies, in chests, and in many other
           places. You use them to buy items at the shop or for other purposes.

    Armos
        Effective Weapons/Items: B, A
        Description: This statue, seemingly lifeless, comes to life when you
                     touch it. You can get past it without awakening it by
                     holding your shield in front of you and walk into the
                     statue; it'll just bounce off your shield without coming
                     alive!
    
    Beetle
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, M, R, B, A
        Description: These small bugs that are found crawling out of holes in
                     Ukuku Prairie. They are very easy to defeat, so the Beetle
                     is definitely NOT an enemy to worry about!
    
    Bomber
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, M, R, A
        Description: These annoying winged mushrooms drop bombs on you. They
                     usually fly away when you get close and attempt to attack
                     with your sword, so use a long distance weapon to take it
                     out!
    
    Buzz Blob
        Effective Weapons/Items: H, M, R, B, A
        Description: This creature looks harmless from the outside, but he
                     delivers a powerful jolt if you attack it directly! Avoid
                     its shock attack by hitting it with anything else EXCEPT the
                     Sword. You could also use Magic Powder on this enemy to turn
                     it into Cukeman.
    
    Crow
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, R, B, A
        Description: This black bird is only found in 2 parts of the game: in
                     Tabahl Wasteland and just inside the outside walls of
                     Kanalet Castle. It is very easy to beat when you do
                     encounter it, though.
    
    Cukeman
        Effective Weapons/Items: H, R, B, A
        Description: This walking blob can be considered both a bad guy and a
                     good guy in a way. The good part is that if you go up to and
                     talk to it, it will talk, but whatever it says doesn't make
                     sense! The bad part is if you hit it with your sword, it'll
                     shock you just like the Buzz Blob.
    
    Fish
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, M, R, B, A
        Description: This fish inhabits the Goponga Swamp. All it does is swim
                     just below the surface of the murky swamp and jump out of
                     the water every now and then. You can just beat it by
                     attacking when it's above the surface.
    
    Flying Octorok
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, M, R, B, A
        Description: This is a winged version of the regular Octorok. It attacks
                     by spitting rocks from its mouth at you. If you go and try
                     to attack it with your sword, it'll fly to another location
                     and spit rocks at you! Defeat it by using the Spinning Sword
                     Attack or with a long distance weapon.
    
    Ghost
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, R, B, A
        Description: This specter is only found in the cemetery, and it only
                     appears when you touch a tombstone. Defeat them with a bunch
                     of blows from your sword or another one of your weapons.
    
    Giant Ghini
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, R, B, A
        Description: As its name implies, it's a larger version of the Ghost.
                     Luckily, it only appears from one tombstone in the entire
                     cemetery! Defeat it like you did the Ghost and a Fairy will
                     appear as a reward.
    
    Giant Goponga Flower
        Effective Weapons/Items: H, R
        Description: This is an oversized swamp-dwelling flower that shoots small
                     balls at you to attack. You can't harm it directly, but
                     BowWow can eat it! When you don't have BowWow anymore, use
                     the Magic Rod or the Hookshot to defeat it.
    
    Goponga Flower
        Effective Weapons/Items: H, R
        Description: Like its larger counterpart, this flower cannot be harmed
                     directly by most weapons. Have BowWow eat these flowers when
                     you have him or just use the Hookshot or Magic Rod to beat
                     them.
    
    Leever
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, M, R, B, A
        Description: This creature, mainly found in the desert, lives in the
                     ground, but comes to the surface to attack. You can just
                     defeat it with a couple hits from your sword.
    
    Like Like
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, M, R, B, A
        Description: This moving sponge-like creature is really annoying,
                     especially when it swallows you whole! If you have your
                     shield equipped when it swallows you, it'll take it from
                     you! You can get it back by defeating the Like Like, though.
    
    Mad Bomber
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, R, A
        Description: This enemy is only found inside the outside walls of Kanalet
                     Castle. They pop out of a hole, then throw a bomb at you,
                     which quickly detonates, then retreat into the hole. They
                     then reappear in a different hole and repeat the same
                     process. Hit them when they pop their heads out of the hole
                     before they throw their bombs.
    
    Monkey

        Description: These tiles, found in some rooms of some dungeons, come out
                     of the floor and fly towards you! An easy way to defeat them
                     is to either hold your shield up so they crash into it or
                     just cut up the tiles with your sword as they come towards
                     you.
    
    Giant Bubble
        Effective Weapons/Items: N/A
        Description: This large bubble is only found in the Face Shrine dungeon's
                     basement. You can avoid it by just staying out of its way
                     and run by when it passes.
    
    Laser
        Effective Weapons/Items: N/A
        Description: This small, rotating eye is found in certain rooms in some
                     dungeons. When its eye spots you, it shoots a laser beam at
                     you. You can't beat it, so just avoid it by hiding behind
                     stuff so it doesn't see you!
    
    Mega Thwomp
        Effective Weapons/Items: N/A
        Description: This giant Thwomp, found in only one place: the basement of
                     the Key Cavern. Since it's so large and it won't budge for
                     almost anything, use the Pegasus Boots and ram it. It'll
                     cause it to drop down, allowing you access!
    
    Podoboo
        Effective Weapons/Items: N/A
        Description: This fireball from the Mario games jumps out of lava areas.
                     They're very easy to avoid, though. Just wait until it's
                     going back down into the lava, then pass that section before
                     it pops back up again!
    
    Spiked Thwomp
        Effective Weapons/Items: N/A
        Description: This is a large, spiked Thwomp. However, its top is flat and
                     safe to stand on. When you pass under it, it'll come
                     crashing down! To get past, use your Pegasus Boots to run
                     under it.
    
    Stone Elevator
        Effective Weapons/Items: N/A
        Description: In the Bottle Grotto dungeon, there's a stone elevator that
                     just won't budge when you stand on it. The only way to get
                     it to move is to pick up a nearby pot, then stand on it
                     again; it'll weigh down the elevator!
    
    Thwomp
        Effective Weapons/Items: N/A
        Description: This is a normal-sized Thwomp. Like the spiked version,
                     it'll come crashing down on you if pass under it. To get
                     past, use the Pegasus Boots to dart right past them!

                     arrows while jumping in the air with the Roc's Feather when

        Effective Weapons/Items: S
        Description: This boxing glove wearing enemy, found in Turtle Rock, is
                     really annoying to fight, especially when it lands a punch
                     on you! If it hits you with an uppercut, you'll be sent to
                     the entrance of the dungeon! Wait until it winds up for a

                     around the perimeter of the room quickly. It does have a
                     large backside, which is its weakness. When it's about to
                     turn a corner and run towards you, hit its backside, then
                     when it heads back in the direction it came hit it again!

                     area of Yarna Desert. It jumps in and out of the sand, but
                     it doesn't attack! When it pops out, hit its head with your

                     dinosaurs from the original Zelda. These snakes eat bombs,
                     but the bombs also hurt them! Defeat these snakes by getting
                     in front of them and putting a bomb there so they eat it and
                     get hurt. Feed them a total of 3 bombs each to kill them.

                     well! When they open their eyes, they'll shoot a ball at
                     you. Beat them by shooting them in the eyes when they're
                     open. One way to make their eyes open quickly is to play the

                     doesn't attack itself, but it calls 6 Big Keese to appear.
                     To win against this mini-boss, you must defeat all 6 Big
                     Keese before any of them fly off the screen. If any of them
                     get away, you have to try again. After you beat the bats,
                     the Grim Creeper will disappear.
    
    Hinox
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, R, B, A
        Description: This giant Cyclops enemy is a pain because it can grab you
                     and throw you, thus stunning you when you land. Get in front

        Effective Weapons/Items: S
        Description: This large Moblin living in a cave east of the Goponga Swamp
                     is definitely the king of Moblins just by its size! It
                     shoots arrows at you, then dashes straight towards you. Move
                     out of the way and let it crash into the wall, then hit it
                     with your sword while it's dazed. Repeat that process until

                     appears in 4 different rooms in which you must fight it.
                     Each time you encounter it, attack it by using the sword to
                     make it collapse, then plant a bomb on it to cause damage to
                     it. After a few hits, it'll disappear into the next room you
                     must meet it in. After you beat it the 4th and final time,
                     you'll win the Hookshot!
    
    Rolling Bones
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, R, B, A
        Description: This frog-like enemy pushes a spiked log back and forth
                     across the room. To defeat it, attack it quickly with your
                     sword or another strong weapon and jump over the log when
                     it's rolled. Keep hitting it until it's defeated.

        Effective Weapons/Items: P

                     you. Defeat this enemy by picking up the orb with the Power
                     Bracelet, and then throw it right at Smasher to hurt it.

                     come to life! When the head comes out and moves around just
                     keep hitting it with your sword until it's destroyed.

    Moldorm
        Found: Tail Cave
        Effective Weapons/Items: S
        Strategy: The giant Moldorm is the boss of the Tail Cave. It's only
                  weakness is the tip of its tail. Get behind it, and then hit
                  its tail; that'll cause it to get an extra boost of speed for a
                  moment. After it slows down again, hit its tail again. Keep
                  attacking its tail until you win.
    
    Genie
        Found: Bottle Grotto
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, P, B
        Strategy: This genie is the boss of the Bottle Grotto. It hides inside of
                  its protective bottle so it can't be hurt, but there's a way to
                  hurt it while it's inside. When the bottle bounces towards you,
                  hit it with your sword, then pick it up and throw it at the
                  wall with the Power Bracelet. That'll make the genie come out
                  and throw fireballs at you. After he retreats to his bottle,
                  pick up and throw the bottle at the wall again. Do that 3 times
                  total to make the bottle break and the genie will have to fight
                  you! Hit the Genie with your sword, then it'll spin around and
                  then shoot a fireball at you. Then, hit it again. Keep doing
                  that until it's defeated.
    
    Slime Eye
        Found: Key Cavern
        Effective Weapons/Items: S
        Strategy: When you enter this boss's room, you won't see it. After it
                  taunts you, ram the wall with the Pegasus Boots to make the
                  boss of the Key Cavern fall to the ground. When it does,
                  repeatedly hit it with your sword until you see it splitting
                  into 2 and there's just a small thread holding them together.
                  Then, ram that spot with the Pegasus Boots and the sword and
                  it'll split into 2 enemies! To beat them, hit them with your
                  sword and use Roc's Feather to jump in the air when they come
                  crashing to the ground after you hit them. Keep doing that
                  until they're both defeated.
    
    Angler Fish
        Found: Angler's Tunnel
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, B, A
        Strategy: This giant fish is the boss of the Angler's Tunnel. Its
                  weakness is a glowing tentacle above its head. To beat this
                  fish, hit the tentacle repeatedly with your sword while the
                  fish moves up and down. If you're not quick enough, the Angler
                  will dash towards you to attack. Then, continue hitting the
                  tentacle until it's defeated.
    
    Slime Eel
        Found: Catfish's Maw
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H
        Strategy: When you enter this boss's chamber inside the Catfish's Maw, a
                  giant pit opens up in the middle of the room. Its tail pops out
                  and rotates around in a circle, then 4 holes in the walls
                  appear. To beat this creature, wait until you see the eel's
                  head pop out of one of the 4 holes, then when it opens its
                  mouth, shoot the Hookshot into it while trying to avoid the
                  spiked tail. After you pull the eel out of the hole, hit the
                  flashing heart behind its head a few times with your sword.
                  Watch out because there is also a fake eel and if you pull it
                  out, it'll explode! Keep pulling out and attacking the real eel
                  until it's defeated.
    
    Fašade
        Found: Face Shrine
        Effective Weapons/Items: B
        Strategy: This giant face in the floor is the boss of the Face Shrine
                  dungeon. When you first enter this room, it'll make Flying
                  Tiles come out of the ground and fly after you, then it'll make
                  the 4 pots fly towards you. After you evade all those flying
                  objects, plant a bomb on the face of Fašade. After it explodes,
                  Fašade will disappear, then reappear again. Repeat the last
                  step around 3 or 4 more times to defeat it.
    
    Evil Eagle
        Found: Eagle's Tower
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, B, A
        Strategy: This giant eagle that flies around atop the Eagle's Tower is
                  the boss of Level 7. After it first takes off and it flies
                  onscreen again, hit its beak with the Hookshot as it flies by.
                  When it flies by 2 more times, hit it both times. Then, it'll
                  stop and start to shoot feathers and make strong wind gusts
                  come towards you. Use the Mirror Shield to keep the wind gusts
                  from blowing you off the tower as easily and to block the
                  feathers shot at you. Then, hit it again with the Hookshot when
                  it flies by overhead. Continue to hit its beak with the
                  Hookshot until it's defeated.
    
    Hot Head
        Found: Turtle Rock
        Effective Weapons/Items: R
        Strategy: This fiery boss is the guardian of the Thunder Drum deep inside
                  the Turtle Rock dungeon. It jumps in and out of the lava and
                  surprisingly doesn't actually attack you! The only weapon that
                  can cause harm to it is the Magic Rod, even though it shoots
                  fire! When Hot Head comes out of the lava, shoot it as many
                  times as you can with the Magic Rod. Make sure to ambush it
                  with lots of hits when it is above the lava because when it
                  dives back in, it recovers and you'll have to start over.
                  Continue to use the Magic Rod until you eventually put out its
                  flames and beat it!
    
    The 6 Nightmare Shadows
        Found: Wind Fish's Egg
        Effective Weapons/Items: Varies
        Strategy: The 6 Shadows deep inside the Wind Fish's Egg are the final
                  bosses of the game. There are obviously 6 of them, and I'll
                  provide separate strategies on beating each one below:
    
        Giant Gel
            Effective Weapons/Items: M
            Strategy: This Giant Gel is the first of the 6 Shadows, but not the
                      absolute easiest (Lanmola's Shadow is!). When it appears,
                      it'll make a small hop forward. Go up to it and sprinkle
                      Magic Powder on it to hurt it. Then, back up and it'll take
                      another small hop. Sprinkle more Magic Powder on it to
                      cause damage. Do this one more time to beat the Giant Gel
                      and the shadow will become Agahnim's Shadow!
    
        Agahnim's Shadow
            Effective Weapons/Items: S
            Strategy: The shadow of Agahnim attacks just the same as the real one
                      from Zelda 3 (A Link to the Past). When he casts a spell
                      and a flashing ball comes towards you, hit it with your
                      sword back towards Agahnim to hurt him. When he moves to
                      another area of the room, do the same thing. Watch out,
                      though, because if he casts a spell and a bunch of small
                      shots together come towards you, they'll hurt you even
                      though you hit them with your sword! Keep hitting the
                      flashing balls at him a few more times until he's defeated.
    
        Shadow of Moldorm
            Effective Weapons/Items: S
            Strategy: This shadow is exactly like the original Moldorm boss you
                      fought back in the Tail Cave! Defeat this one the same way
                      as the original: hit its tail and watch out when it moves
                      quickly after you hit it. Keep hitting it a bunch of times
                      until you defeat it.
    
        Ganon's Shadow
            Effective Weapons/Items: S
            Strategy: The shadow of Ganon from A Link to the Past is back as one
                      of the final nightmares. To beat this reincarnation, use
                      the Pegasus Boots to dash into Ganon and stab it with your
                      sword. Keep ramming it while watching out when he calls a
                      bunch of bats to attack until you beat him!
    
        Shadow of Lanmola
            Effective Weapons/Items: R
            Strategy: This just HAS to be the easiest of the shadows! When it
                      appears, just hit it once with your Magic Rod to defeat it!
    
        Dethl
            Effective Weapons/Items: A
            Strategy: This is the last and hardest of the 6 Shadows. It has 2
                      long tentacles that circle around its center area. Jump
                      over the tentacles while trying to stay in front of Dethl's
                      middle area and wait until it opens its eye. Then, shoot a
                      bunch of arrows at its eye while avoiding the tentacles
                      until the eye closes. When it opens again, shoot more
                      arrows into it. After you've successfully shot about 20
                      arrows into its eye, Dethl will be defeated and you win the
                      game! Another quicker way to defeat Dethl is possible only
                      if you have the Boomerang. When it opens its eye, throw the
                      Boomerang right into it for an instant defeat!

    =============
    Item Upgrades
    =============
    
    In this game, you are only allowed to carry a certain amount of Magic Powder, 
    Bombs, and Arrows at once. You can raise your maximum capacity by visiting 
    the Mad Batter, which is hidden in 3 areas throughout the island. When you 
    enter its lair, just sprinkle Magic Powder into the lantern and it'll appear. 
    Here, I'll tell where each one is located:
    
        1. In the Mysterious Forest, go one screen north from the cave in the
           forest. There, use the Power Bracelet to lift up the stone and go down
           the steps to visit the Mad Batter's lair.
    
        2. This location is in the vicinity of the Catfish's Maw, so I'll tell
           you how to get there from that dungeon. From there, swim left a screen
           and climb up the ladder. Then, head south 2 screens and right one.
           Here, use Roc's Feather to jump over the pit and cut down a bush
           you'll fall down a hole doing this, but don't worry about it unless
           you don't have much health). The, use the Pegasus Boots combined with
           the feather to jump over the pit to that space you cut down, then chop
           down more bushes and go down the steps. Get through the watery cave
           using your Flippers, then when you emerge, go left a screen and down
           the steps into the Mad Batter's lair.
    
        3. This last location is located in the Western Tal Tal Mountains area.
           Follow the path up and around until you pass the area where boulders
           fall from the mountains. Then, when you're in the scene with a
           treasure chest and a stone nearby, lift up that stone and go down the
           steps to reach the Mad Batter's lair.
    
    
    ==================
    Making Bomb Arrows
    ==================
    
    When you have the Bombs and Arrows in your inventory, assign the Bombs to one 
    button and the Bow and Arrows to the other. Then, press both buttons 
    simultaneously and you'll shoot an arrow with a bomb on it! It'll explode on 
    impact with anything!
    
    
    ==================
    Money Saving Trick
    ==================
    
    To save LOTS of your rupees when you go and buy some of the expensive items 
    like the Shovel or Bow, you must follow the following steps. You also have to 
    have at least the amount of rupees that item is though. First, take the item 
    from the shelf and go to pay for it. After you buy it and the rupees start 
    deducting, QUICKLY press A, B, Start, and Select simultaneously to get a 
    chance to save and quit. Do that, then when you come back to the game, you'll 
    have the item and most of the rupees!
    
    
    =======================
    Obtaining the Boomerang
    =======================
    
    In order to get the Boomerang, you must first have the Magnifying Glass from 
    the trading sequence, and the Shovel. From where you find the Sword in the 
    beginning of the game on Toronbo Shores, go left one screen. Bomb the wall 
    and go into the cave. Assign the Shovel to the B button, and then talk to the 
    Goriya. He'll trade you the Boomerang for what's on the B button, which 
    should be the Shovel. You can always trade the Boomerang back the same way 
    that you obtained it, too!
    
    
    ======================
    Stealing from the Shop
    ======================
    
    If you want a really expensive item, but don't want to pay for it, you can 
    steal it from the shop. The one problem to stealing is if you ever re-enter 
    the shop, the shopkeeper will automatically kill you! Also, everyone in the 
    game will call you THIEF for the rest of the game. To steal, take the item 
    you want, then run all the way around the right side of the shopkeeper, and 
    then quickly exit the shop with the item. You should make it while the 
    shopkeeper is still looking the other way. I advise that you only do this 
    trick when you're getting the Bow because you should already have bough Bombs 
    and the Shovel earlier in the game and you won't need anything important from 
    the shop after the Bow.

    Wind Fish Egg Paths
    ===================
    
    Inside the Wind Fish's Egg, you'll find a room with 4 different paths to 
    choose from. It's pretty much like a "Lost Woods" (Zelda 1 for NES) if you 
    don't know where to go. Below, I'll list 3 different paths that you could 
    take to get past this part of the egg. Remember that only ONE of these paths 
    will work for your game file, so try each path until one works for you! 
    (Note: These are paths that I found to work, so if none of them work for you, 
    go to the Library and read the book in the lower-right corner. You'll need 
    the Magnifying Glass to do that, though.)
    
        Path 1: Left, Left, Up, Right, Right, Up, Left, Up
    
        Path 2: Left, Up, Right, Up, Left, Up, Right, Up
    
        Path 3: Right, Up, Up, Right, Up, Up, Right, Up
