The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Shadow Temple Walkthrough By: Ernest 64 E-Mail: Mmmm... see last section. Contents: 1) Introduction. 2) Shadow Temple Walkthrough (including gold skulltullas). 3) Farewell... (credits) 1) Introduction Hi there again!!! One more time, and as always, I'm here to help you... Someone e-mailed me to make this mini FAQ (I'll give you some credit, at the end), so... I'm here to please you my faithful and loyal readers. Skulltullas, keys, and items will be in capital letter for a more confortable and easier search.... This is the first and last version, written in January 25- 26 1999. Ah, as always, see last section for details to contact me. 2) Shadow Temple Walkthrough (including gold skulltullas). How to find it: Well, easy... after beating the Water Temple go to Kakariko Village... you'll see... Sheik, who will teach you the Nocturne of Shadow, use it to warp to the back of the graveyard. Now you're at the temple entrance. Use Din's Fire to light all torches simultaneously to open the door. Enter the temple... Note: I recommend you already have the Lens of Truth from the Bottom of the Well level (if you don't have them, e- mail me and I'll specify...) and the Scarecrow's song (if you don't have it e-mail me or see my Fire Temple Walkthrough here at gamefaqs.com). You don't really need it, it is helpful to get a gold skulltulla and to cross a pit (I'l explain this later)... Let's start!!!! Walkthrough: Turn right and cross the pit using your hookshot. Go forward and you'll go through the wall!!! (using your lens you can see that...). Now you'll be in the "First room". Take a drastic left and go through the wall on the far left corner... Keep going in this room and use your lens to see a fake wall on your right. Enter the door behind it. In this room kill everything (i.e the zombie and the bats) and a chest with the DUNGEON MAP will appear. Now exit and return (using your lens) to see another fake wall on your right. Enter it and you'll be in a room same as last one. Watch out for the flying pots and use your lens to see another fake wall. So go through it (duh, really??) and you'll see a door. Enter it (duh, again???) and kill Dead Hand (Bottom of the Well Boss). Now it's easier because you have the Master or the Biggoron's Sword... After you killed him you'll get the HOVER BOOTS!!!!!! Now return back to the first room and use your lens to see which of the skulls in the middle of the room doesn't dissapear. Grab the statue and push it to the skull that didn't dissappear. If you stop on any other skull you'll fall to a pit. This will open the gate at the other side of the pit. Now equip your hover boots press and hold all the way forward to reach the platform (the one with a silly face that had the gate). Go down this corridor and you'll reach a laser eye thing. Kill it if you want with 2 bombs... go through your right wall. Enter the door, kill the Mummy and get the COMPASS. Exit and go through the wall straight ahead from you (left from the corridor). In this room you'll see an statue with two moving blades (it's similar to the one in the Ice Cavern level). So dodge them and grab all the silver rupees in the room (one is on a platform, so use your hookshot on the target in the ceiling...). after you get them a grating will open revealing a small chest with a small KEY. Exit this room and go to the wall on your left (straight ahead from the corridor). Use a bomb to blow it up and enter the locked door. In this hallway, avoid the Skulltullas (you can see their shadows) and you'll reach a room with falling blades. Keep going forward and you'll reach a platform. Kill the Stalfos. You can play the Song of Storms in the middle of this platform for a Big Fairy. Go left from this platform (use your Lens and your Hover Boots) to reach a door on the far southwest corner. Go through it (Oh, come on!??) and put on your Lens to see another two-blade-statue. Kill the shield eater and all the bats (3 of them) and a grating will open revealing a chest with some rupees and the first gold SKULLTULLA. You don't really need to enter this room, but the title says it: Shadow Temple Walkthrough (INCLUDING GOLD SKULLTULLAS...). Go back to the falling blade room, kill the Stalfos, summon the Big Fairy if you want using the Song of Storms, then (using your hover boots) continue straight ahead to the moving platform (right from the blades). Note: you must wait for the platform to be at its lowest point, otherwise you won't reach it and you'll fall to the pit. Now, on the moving platform, wait until it reaches its highest point, then proceed forward to the laser thing and ground spikes platform. On here, grab all the silver rupees (I recommend you to unequip the hover boots...) avoiding the ground spikes to open the grating. Remember that one silver rupee is under the laser eye thing, so kill it with a bomb to get it... Follow this corridor to get to the "Falling Spikes" room. Use your Lens and look at your right wall and you'll see a block. Pull it out until it gets to the face on the floor. Now push it (this is to avoid the falling spikes) until it gets to the second spike, then go around it and pull it all the way. There's a gold SKULLTULLA in a cage left from the spikes... Now climb the block and jump to the ledge on your left (right from the skulltulla). Now wait until the second falling spike drops down, then use it (hover boots) and hover to the ledge in front of you... step on the switch to make a chest appears, then return (via the falling blade) and get the KEY on it. Exit this room, then go back to the falling blades room (the one with the Stalfos, this is easier if you get confused between falling blades and falling spikes room). Go to the ramp on your left to reach a platform with a falling blade. Dodge it, equip your Hover Boots and Lens of Truth to see an invisible platform. Go to it and you'll see another invisible, but moving platform. Use it to get to the locked door there. Enter it (duh, again???). Now in this room use your Lens to see the invisible spikes on the floor. Kill the zombies for some rupees, and collect all silver rupees by using the hookshot targets on the wall. (there is one in an invisible platform, so use your lens to see the hookshot target and get it). Enter the door that opened. Climb up the stairs and use a bomb plant there and throw it to the giant skull. Grab the small KEY and kill the third gold SKULLTULLA behind it. Now kill all bats to unlock the door. Go back to the previous zombie room. Now put on your lens to see an invisible hookshot target on the ceiling above the locked door. Go through it. Now in this corridor, put on your Iron boots (ya, Iron, not Hover, this is to avoid being blown from the fans). Turn right and wait until the fan there stops, then equip your hover boots to cross the pit. Reequip your Iron ones and cross the path. You don't need to enter the door there, there are some weird chests, a hint (if you're using this Faq you don't need it), and a Big Fairy you can summon with the Song of the Sun. Kill the eye shooting fire at you with an arrow (when the eye is opened). Note: If you get burned what do you do?? Run, don't you? But you can't run with the Iron Boots!!!, so that's a big problem... Well... not anymore. Just swing your sword a few times to get rid of the fire... (good hint, huh???). Now look left using your lens (from looking at the door) and you'll see a fake wall. So face it, equip your hover boots, and when you see you're starting to be blown away by the fan behind you, hold all the way forward and you'll reach the platform... (cool, ain't it??). Enter the door. In this room, look to your right and use a bomb on the pile of sh... (Oops!!) sorry, dirt there. This will reveal an invisible small chest, so use your lens and grab the KEY on it... Proceed to the locked door (get rid of the mummies if you want...). Now you are at the "Big Ship's" room. Take a left and pull the block to the face tile on the floor, then turn around and push it all the way to the stairs. Climb it, them, and you'll be next to the ship. Don't go to it yet. Instead, look to the grating left from facing the ship. Wait until Navi turns green and flies to the grating platform, then play your Scarecrow's song to make Pierre appear on it. Longshot to him to kill the fourth gold SKULLTULLA. Now go to the ship, stand in the Triforce Symbol and play Zelda's Lullaby to make the ship move. While it's moving, you'll have to fight 2 Stalfos, so take out your hover boots if you have them equipped... Then the ship will stop and will start sinking (it doesn't matter if you were or not done with the Stalfos), so jump to the platform to your left (when facing the front of the ship). Enter the door in there. Well... now you are in the toughest room of this Temple, the "Maze Room". Use your lens to see the invisible walls of the maze. There are 4 rooms in this maze (I say four, cause the one you entered from counts as one). One has 2 spiked wood walls, so use Din's fire when they are close enough to get rid of them. This room contains the BOSS KEY!!. Another has three giant skulls, they give you some rupees if you blow them up and the last GOLD SKULLTULLA, behind them. The last one, has an invisible monster (use your lens), so kill it to get the last small KEY!!. Once you have everything, exit. Note: I recommend you to navigate this maze by sticking on the outside right wall, it is easier. Also watch out for the 3 or 4 invisible hand monsters on it... Now, in this room, stand on the bone platform, then wait until Navi turns green and fly to the platform on your right, above. Then play the Scarecrow's song and longshot to Pierre to cross the pit. Another way is to shoot the bomb plants next to the statue with an arrow, to make it fall to create a bridge... Proceed to enter the locked door in there, then put on your hover boots and your lens of truth to see the platforms and reach the final Boss Room Door... Drop down the hole in there and you'll meet... Shadow Temple Boss: Phantom Shadow Beast: Bongo Bongo I don't know, but he looks somehow like Andross in Starfox 64... I recommend you to have a fairy in a bottle... His attacks: well, clapping, smashing, punching.... First, shoot both hands with an arrow. They will turn blue. Immediatly put on your lens to see his face and start charging a spin attack, when he tries to "bite" you, release the spin and he'll be stunned. Once he's stunned slash him with your sword and repeat... With the Biggoron's Sword will be a lot easier... 3) Farewell...
