The FAQ featured preliminary sections like Purpose, and using the guide, as well as appendix sections including items, boss-descriptions, and notes. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Purpose~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(0.3) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This FAQ was written in response to time line theorists. Indeed, FSA has many controversial and conflicting issues with the Zelda timeline, and it remained one of the last Zelda games that Gamefaqs did not have a script for. The guide may also be used for casual readers, as all quotes are the chronological order that matches the progression of the game. I also tried to use as many captions as possible to describe the events that occur. Hopefully, a wide range of Zelda fans will find this guide helpful. The guide is currently formatted using the same line breaks that the game has. Although, if it becomes an issue, I may end up deleting the games line breaks for ease of reading. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Using the guide~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(0.4) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I decided to use a rating system that would help timeline theorists better navigate and find meaningful quotes. Quotes that I give a rating to will have (TMLN X) directly after the name, with X being the rating level. This way if you want to search for important quotes by a specific person, you would type in "NAME(TMLN" in the search box. Or if you want to search for a specific rating level for a specific person, or all quotes of a certain rating, you would search "NAME(TMLN X), or (TMLN X) respectively. Again, X would be either 1, 2, or 3 with 3 being the highest canon, and 1 being a possible Easter Egg. So if I wanted to search for the description of the tri dent, I would search "REDMAIDEN(TMLN 2)" with a space in between red and maiden, because I know that the redmaiden reads the inscription and I know the tri dent is level 2. (Note: I'm using irregular spacing so as not to flood the search results) I realize that doing this in itself is controversial, and could turn out biased, as someone else might give a certain quote a different rating, but I narrowed it down to three levels of canon that hopefully can't be disputed. LEVEL 3: High-Level Canon All quotes marked with (TMLN 3) are indisputable Canon that is widely believed to be universally concurrent throughout the series. It also includes elements that MUST be tied into the timeline. This includes the prologue, and epilogue, Gannon, the Triforce, the Four Sword, and Zelda. After deliberating awhile, I decided the tri dent would be included in this level, as it is widely believed to affect the rest of the timeline. LEVEL 2: Mid-Level Canon All quotes marked with (TMLN 2) are large factors to take into consideration when constructing a timeline. This level will include canonical elements that impact the construction of many people's timelines, but sometimes not others. This includes new storyline elements that are unique to FSA, but could very well be expanded on in future Zelda games. Such level 2 material includes the trident, Gerudo, Zuna, the Pyramid, the Royal Jewels, the Knights of Hyrule, and some of what Kaepora Gaebora says. LEVEL 1: Low-Level Canon All quotes marked with (TMLN 1) are probably inconsequential to the construction of the timeline, and might be called Easter Eggs. I sometimes labeled seemingly irrelevant quotes a 1, because someone could very well end up using them to support random point in some time line discussion or another. Important characters like Zelda and the maidens will always at least be given a 1 rating, even if what they're saying doesn't appear to be relevant to the time line. These types of quotes can still be utilized for deciphering the personality of important characters. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Case Cover Description~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(0.7) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ One Destiny Four Links!

Nobody could stop Vaati, and the people of Hyrule despaired. Then, a brave young warrior carrying only a single sword appeared. When the young lad took out his sword, he split into four separate beings. The legends say that these four beings worked as one and defeated Vaati. The wanderer, united once again, imprisoned Vaati deep in Hyrule and sealed the prison with his own sword. This place became known as the Realm of the Four Sword. After that, a long time passed. Then, the wind sorcerer Vaati broke out of his prison and then snatched Princess Zelda of Hyrule. Zelda's childhood friend, a young boy named Link, claimed the strange power of the Four Sword and fought Vaati fiercely. In the end, he succeeded in sealing Vaati away once again. And so, peace was restored to Hyrule once again. Or so everyone thought... IN-GAME SCRIPT (Hyrulean Adventure) (Adventure across Hyrule, and free the realm with the mighty Four Sword!) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Game Prologue(TMLN 3)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(0.9) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Long ago, in the kingdom of Hyrule, a wind sorcerer named Vaati appeared. Vaati terrorized the people of Hyrule and kidnapped many beautiful girls from their homes. When all hope seemed lost, a young boy carrying little more than a sword appeared. According to the legends, when the boy drew his sword, he split into four, the four-who-are-one worked together to vanquish Vaati. The hero used his word to bind Vaati in a remote area in Hyrule. The people christened the blade the Four Sword and built a shrine around it. There it remained undisturbed for years. Ages flowed by... The wind sorcerer Vaati broke free of his prison and kidnapped Zelda, the princess of Hyrule. Princess Zelda's childhood friend, Link, used the power of the Four Sword to defeat Vaati and seal him away once again. And, for a time, the people of Hyrule believed that their land was safe. Until... _______________________________________________________________________________ VOICE FROM THE LIGHT(TMLN 1) Link... Link... Can you hear my voice? NARRATOR(TMLN 1) Swiftly and suddenly, dark clouds covered all of Hyrule. Ominous clouds that filled all those who saw them with fear... A sense of dread swept across the land. VOICE FROM THE LIGHT Link... Hurry to Hyrule Castle... ~Hyrule Castle~ PRINCESS ZELDA(TMLN 1) Oh, Link... It's you! Thank goodness you came! The six maidens who guard Hyrule are gathered here in the castle. The sky has become so dark and foreboding... I'm worried about the seal that binds the wind sorcerer Vaati. VOICE Princess Zelda! Come quickly! PRINCESS ZELDA(TMLN 1) We must hurry. Come, this way. ~Maidens Sanctuary~ PRINCESS ZELDA(TMLN 2) These six maidens guard the portal to the Four Sword Sanctuary to keep it safe. I'm going now to make sure Vaati's seal remains strong. Now, the shrine maidens and I must open the portal to the Four Sword's resting place. Step back, Link... [Maidens create the portal] Come with me, Link. [Gasp, Shadow Link appears] Ah! Wh...who are--? It can't be... You're...Link?! [Shadow Link encapsulates the maidens, disappearing into the portal; Link follows him through the portal, to the Four Sword Sanctuary.] ~Four Sword Sanctuary~ [Shadow Link taunts Link into approaching the Four Sword] NARRATOR(TMLN 2) This sword guards the seal on the wind sorcerer Vaati. If you draw the sword, you must know what will happen. Will you still draw forth the sword? (No) [Shadow Link continues to taunt Link, until he approaches it again] So you accept the fate of the one who draws this sword? (Yes) [Link pulls it out, splitting into four. Shadow Link laughs and runs away, but as Link tries to pursue him, dark magic spews from the pedestal, and a windy cyclone appears, carrying the four Links away. The sorcerer Vaati appears from the pedestal, (in his beastly eyeball form) and cackles. The screen fades.] [black screen; flapping wings and owl coos can be heard every once in awhile] VOICE(TMLN 2) Link... You have accepted the destiny of the hero... Princess Zelda and the six maidens have been taken by dark forces. However, Vaati's magic has robbed the Four Sword of its power to vanquish darkness. To return the sword to its full strength, find the source of that power: Force Gems. Gather Force Gems wherever they lie, and rescue the maidens and Princess Zelda. _______________________________________________________________________________ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ LEVEL ONE: Whereabouts of the Wind~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(1.0) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ STAGE 1: Lake Hylia~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(1.1) [black screen except for four Links passed out on the ground] VOICE Link! Link! You must awaken, Link! [screen opens to green field, an Owl flies in landing on a perch.] Hoo hoot! At last, you're awake, Link. I am Kaepora Gaebora. KAEPORA GAEBORA(TMLN 2) Mine is the voice you've been hearing since you left the Four Sword Sanctuary. I know you're worried about finding Vaati, but you must not act rashly. Find the six shrine maidens and Princess Zelda, and you will also find Vaati. As for that dark shadow... Let's call him Shadow Link. That one is up to no good. Your sword is weak, but you can restore its power by infusing it with Force Gems. Hoo hoo! First, gather the four who were once one with the L Button or Y button. I must fly, but we will meet again on the road ahead. [Kaepora Gaebora flies away] OLD MAN IN HOUSE Hm? I've never seen you lads in these parts before. I'm spending my retirement teaching my grandkids all about formations. You may not believe me, but I'm a former castle guard! A professional adventurer. Formations are the key to working together and performing great deeds! If you're interested in learning more about it, go on into my backyard! [Move into backyard] OK. We'll get started once you're all standing in the field on the left! GRANDKID 1 If you get into formation and unite your strength, you can do almost anything! You can certainly do more than any one of you could do alone. GRANDKID 2 Oh! Hi there. You know, if you have a Game Boy Advance, you should use it. We always connect our Game Boy Advance systems! It's nice to have a little privacy when you go into a house or a cave. That's what our grandfather always says. But...what would he need privacy for? GRANDKID 3 Press the L Button or the Y Button to change formations! GRANDKID 4 Oh, hello there! Did you come to learn formations from my grandfather, too? If so, you can do your training over there! GRANDFATHER (instructing) OK! Looks like you're ready to get started! I'm going to drill you boys in the art of formations! And... Wait, hold it! I guess I'd better explain how this all works first! Um... I'll yell out the name of a formation! You will press the L Button or the Y Button to form up! That's it!! If you hear a formation name but don't know which it is, watch my grandkids. All right then... Here we go! [do the four formations: Box, Wide, Long, Cross] That's enough! That's the end of the drill! I'll give you some Force Gems for all the hard work you've done! No matter where you go or what you do, remember your formations! Your safety is my number- one concern! [move into house again] GRANDFATHER Listen up! Formations are the foundation upon which adventurers are made. Good formations mean good cooperation, and teamwork is the key to adventure! SIGN The bridge is out! If you just have to see what's on the other side, press and hold the B Button! SIGN Do not recklessly pick up stones and throw them by pressing the R Button! OLD WOMAN IN HOUSE Oh, thank goodness! That stupid door was really getting on my nerves! It never occurred to me that someone might have locked it from the outside! I'm convinced it was that shadow boy, the one who looks just like you. Strange things are happening everywhere these days. You boys watch yourselves. OLD WOMAN IN HOUSE (again) I don't know... You look JUST LIKE that shadow guy. But you eyes! They sparkle and shine with light! I can tell just by looking into your eyes that you're not bad boys. MAN IN BACKYARD I've started working out so I can do something about all those Octoroks out front. Still, no matter how strong I am, I'll never be able to, say, lift a huge rock alone! MAN IN BACKYARD (again) If I have someone to help lift it, I'm sure it would be as easy as pie. OLD WOMAN IN HOUSE (on way out) Oh, so you want that rod, do you? That shadow boy was after the same thing. I hid it from him, but I think you can have it. You've been so nice to me. And besides, you look like you can be trusted with it. Take care of it, all right? [As you lift a large rock, a strange person appears] ... ... ... ... ... ... Huh?! You... You've saved Tingle! TINGLE(TMLN 1) ... ... ... Ooo...! Th-that outfit! That aura! It's the fairy that Tingle has dreamed of... It's you!! Oh, Mr. Fairy! You coming to my rescue has left me overcome with emotion! Let me thank you by sharing some thrilling Tingle news with you! The oh so Tingle-esque pastime of collecting Force Gems is all the rage now! In fact, I got stuck under here trying to get the Force Gem under this rock. But you saved me! Clearly, it was the power of the gems that led you here to me! Tingle believes without a doubt the good things come from collecting Force Gems! Why, collecting enough Force Gems may even turn Tingle into a real and true fairy! No doubt that's why you're after the Force Gems, too, isn't it, Mr. Fairy? Let's be fair about where we look and share the gems equally, Mr. Fairy! And with that, Tingle must say his farwells! ... ...Don't follow me! Tingle Tingle Kooloo- limpah! SIGN -Swimming Basics- Don't be timid! Jump on in! Press the A Button to swim! Press the B Button to dive! Don't stay under too long! THEIF IN CAVE Shooting folks out of my homemade cannon's my hobby! Hey! You wanna go for a ride? Well, climb on in and press the A Button. You shoot right up like a human cannonball! If you wanna leave, press ? or ? at one of the exits! THEIF IN A CAVE Whoa! Look at you... You guys're identical! Say... The four of you...You're brothers? Or...friends, is that it? OK, listen up. I'm real particular about friends. Friends don't always have to be doing the same thing, you know? True friends can do their own thing and still work things out together. Just press the X Button or the + Control Pad to check up on your friends. And when you want to be with your friends again, press the L or Y Button! Sounds nice, doesn't it? I've got to get some friends of my own. KAEPORA GAEBORA(TMLN 2) Link, those black spheres form a barrier of darkness! The darkness that Vaati created is syphoning the power from the land. If these barriers are left intact across Hyrule, Vaati will grow even stronger. Look! Already, the green fields that once grew here have withered to dust. It is unforgivable, what he has done to the land! The power of the Four Sword can destroy the barriers! Link, you must bring your light and pierce the darkness! KAEPORA GAEBORA (again) You must combine the strength of four into one and fight your way out! STAGE 2: Cave of No Return~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(1.2) GHOSTLY SPIRIT Urrk urrrk... You...have friends... I'm jealous... If you have friends, you can toss 'em across charms... I never had any friends. You're a lucky guy... Urrk urrrk... MAGE 1 Ho ho ho... So, back again, are you? I've a feeling I'll be seeing a lot of you... Hee hee hee... MAGE 2 So, we meet again! Hee hee! GHOSTLY SPIRIT OoooOOooo... SO you've wandered into this cave of no return, too, eh? If you want to escape alive, you must pull a long lever. Grab it with the R Button then line up this way ? and pull. That's just common sense. I was all alone, though, so I couldn't do it... I died all alone... GHOSTLY SPIRIT (again) If you see my children back home, be sure to say hello... OoooOOoo... GHOSTLY SPIRIT OooOOooooOoo... Someone...who looked just like you...did this to me. If you're looking to defeat him check his tunic... You can't hit him if you're not wearing the same color. It's common sense... I'd guess as much from the start, but he still got the best of me... GHOSTLY SPIRIT (again) Say hi to my grandkids back home... OoooOOOOoooo... [Defeat Shadow Link!] STAGE 3: Hyrule Castle~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(1.3) SIGN -Tingle Times- Volume 1 Tingle had an encounter with a charming lady fairy! It was fate! Destiny! I was sneaking along behind her when she went into a castle...and never came out! Surely she's been captured, because she's too adorable for her own good! If you happen to see Miss Fairy, gaze upon her lovingly for me. Oh...and save her, too! Tingle [As Link approaches the entrance, Kaepora Gaebora flies onto a nearby perch] KAEPORA GAEBORA(TMLN 1) Link! There's a terrible fiend in Hyrule Castle. He's leeching power from the maidens little by little. Listen well, Link. To rescue the maidens, you must face the fiercest of foes. Keep your wits about you, and be wary! [With that, Kaepora Gaebora flies away] UGLY CREATURE 1 Who... Who is it? Who's there? You... You're not with those fiends who have taken over the castle, are you? Please, would you help me? I heard the maidens' cries and came running to find the castle a nest of fiends. They captured me and split me in two. That's why I look so horrible right now! Please, I beg of you. Reunite my two halves! Make me whole again! UGLY CREATURE 2 Oh, happy day! Thank you! Now, at last, we can merge as one, and I can return to my true form! Please take me to the barrier that blocked your way. I'll do my best to aid you on your journey! [When you approach the barrier, the two ugly creatures join into one beautiful creature] I didn't think I would ever be allowed to reclaim my true form as a Great Fairy again! GREAT FAIRY(TMLN 1) Thank you so much, brave ones! [A hoard of soldiers enter] Uh-oh! It looks like those soldiers have noticed us. I'll take care of this! [The Great Fairy twirls around and the casts a spell that eradicates all the soldiers] So this is the magical barrier that barred your way? Allow me to take care of this. [The barrier is dispelled] I'll let all of my friends throughout Hyrule know... "If you run into four travelers with one face, tend to their weariness and ease the burden of their travels!" There is a tradition that young, noble gentlemen rescue damsels in distress. And so, I leave the well-being of the maidens in your hands. Take care! [She disappears from sight] BLUE MAIDEN(TMLN 2) Where am I? The darkness...It's gone. I have been freed, haven't I? Link! What's happened to you? Oh, the Four Sword. You've drawn the mystic blade. That means Vaati is free once more, does it not? And you've taken up the mantle fate has given you. How brave! Such determination speaks well of you. You are truly a great hero. Oh... Oh! There's something you must know! The dark shadow that captured us... It looked...just like you! What was it? Link... You must save the princess and the remaining maidens! Travel by sea under my protection to a place called the Eastern Temple. Another of my kidnapped sisters is imprisoned there. Allow me to transform, that I might serve as your guide. Come! We must go! _______________________________________________________________________________ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ LEVEL TWO: Eastern Hyrule~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(2.0) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ STAGE 1: The Coast~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(2.1) BLUE MAIDEN (fairy form) Link, we have arrived! The bond you all share must grow stronger if you hope to meet the difficulties ahead. Be prepared. [A large woman blocks the way to a chest] LARGE WOMAN Hmph! If I can't get through that door, I don't see why I should let anyone else! HUSBAND OF LARGE WOMAN Don't pay any attention to my wife... She can be pretty stubborn. Once she makes up her mind, there's no changing it. Why don't you go around back? There's a tunnel you can use behind the house. The entrance is blocked, but maybe you can blast it open. LARGE WOMAN (from other side) Hey, you! What do you think you're doing? Everyone on that side is my enemy! And don't you forget it! SIGN Adventurers, assemble! Head up for some helpful adventuring tips. THEIF Hello there, adventurers! Do you want to know the secret of adventuring? (Nope.) If you don't want to know, I won't force it on you! Bye-bye, adventurers! (Of course!) You want to know, right? I thought so. Here's the deal! Formation shortcuts! Press and hold the L Button. Then press left, right, up, or down. Try it and see. GREAT FAIRY'S FRIEND Let me aid you on your way. (if you have no weapon or it's already upgraded) All I can do is ease your wariness. MAGE What's he trying to prove? Tossing giant bombs around like that is dangerous. I didn't even know they made bombs that big! Those just can't be good. If you value your life, you'd better flee when you see one of those things. Oh, and one more thing: you and that mad bomber are like two peas in a pod. You're practically identical twins! What's up with that? HEHEHEHEHEHEHE! STAGE 2: Village of the Blue Maiden~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(2.2) SIGN -Tingle Times- Volume 2 Strange days have arrived in the village as one child after another disappears. Tingle bets that they're all ditching school, no doubt playing some charming game. Oooh! Tingle wants to play, too! If you discover the kids' whereabouts, play awhile for Tingle's sake! Search 'til your eyes are bloodshot and weary! Tingle OLD MAN IN FRONT OF VILLAGE(TMLN 1) Oh! Travelers! Listen! Calamity has befallen our town! First whirlwinds, and the mages! What are we to do? We need one who can sense the Moon Gates... So if you run across anyone who can do that, well... Be sure to let me know, OK? KAEPORA GAEBORA(TMLN 2) Hoot hoo! Link, are you now able to wield the Four Sword? It's a sacred sword able to smite the darkness. And that's not all. It also grants you the power to see the shadowy Dark World. The people of this village... They're being spirited away by some force. It may be that the Dark World is drawing them in. Save the villagers, Link! Bring light to their darkness! OLD MAN IN FRONT OF VILLAGE (after Kaepora Gaebora) ... Incredible! You can sense the Moon Gates? ...Then perhaps you can save our village! Then take this Moon Pearl! MAGE(TMLN 2) This world is like a dark mirror of you own... It looks familiar, but in truth it is very different. Much like you four... Eee hee hee hee hee! VILLAGE LADY (next to Moon Gate) Huh?!? Where'd you come from!? I'm not used to kids appearing out of nowhere! No, kids around here usually just vanish! The whole town is in an uproar about it. Guys from the Seeker's Guild are looking into it in the northwest part of town. VILLAGE LADY (again) There's always a huge line at the Seeker's Guild in the northwest part of town. You look awful young. You'd better be careful. I don't want you to disappear, too! SIGN -Force Tree- This tree gives fruit to tremendous Force, or so it is said. Unify your body and spirit and strike the tree. You might be rewarded! LARGE LADY How come the shop next door is getting all that business? I just remodeled my place and everything! People should be flocking here! I'm trying to get people excited, so I'm standing in line for my own store! And I'm not budging! LARGE LADY (after moved) What do you want?! I'm in line here! What do you think you're doing?! You're probably spying for that shop next door, aren't you! Well, beat it! Scram! SHOP BYSTANDER 1 I want to go into that shop, but I can't get by... SHOP BYSTANDER 1 (after Large Lady moved) I'm glad I can finally get into the shop, but...I'm not sure I want to go in. Mostly, I'm just afraid that woman will block the door again, and I'll be trapped! SHOP BYSTANDER 2 Would someone do something about that woman? She's blocking the door! I tried asking, but she just won't budge. I guess I could try shoving her... She looks kinda...heavy, though. I doubt anyone could do it alone. SHOP BYSTANDER 2 (after Large Lady moved) Hey! You got that woman out of the way. Thanks! 1st BYSTANDER IN GUILD LINE (starting at front) Whoa there! No cutting in! If you want people to treat you like an adult, you'd better learn some manners!! To the back of the line with you! 2nd BYSTANDER IN GUILD LINE Sheesh! How long am I going to have to wait here?!? 3rd BYSTANDER IN GUILD LINE My only daughter has vanished! Someone has to look for her! Now!!! 4th BYSTANDER IN GUILD LINE My husband and I came here to request an inquiry. I wonder if such a small guild from such a small town can handle such a big task. 5th BYSTANDER IN GUILD LINE Huh? Who, me? Oh, I'm sorry. I'm just here looking around. I just...saw a huge line and figured it must be for something good! 6th BYSTANDER IN GUILD LINE Ohh... My poor, darling grandson. Gone... This whole experience has been awful! I came to ask the guild members for help. 7th BYSTANDER IN GUILD LINE What's going on here! This line isn't moving at all! If this keeps up, I'm going to make them investigate my case for free! 7th BYSTANDER IN GUILD LINE I'm going to ask the Seeker's Guild to let me join them. If they made me a Secret Agent I'd solve all these people's problems pronto! 8th BYSTANDER IN GUILD LINE Hey! No cutting! What, you expect me to believe you just want to get to the other side? Yeah, right! That's what the Cucco said! Well, you're not gonna fool me! 9th BYSTANDER IN GUILD LINE Isn't that girl in front of me cute? There's no way I'm letting you block my view! 10th BYSTANDER IN GUILD LINE Heavens! Such a cute little boy! ...What are you doing with such a big sword? 11th BYSTANDER IN GUILD LINE When is it finally going to be my turn? This is awful! I don't care how long it takes, but I'm not getting out of this line! 12th BYSTANDER IN GUILD LINE Uhh... Please! Someone make this line move faster. I really have to go! ...Huh? This isn't the line for the bathroom? 13th BYSTANDER IN GUILD LINE Ugh! It's just like my dolt of a son to cause me so much trouble! 14th BYSTANDER IN GUILD LINE That lady in front of me is scary. If I were a kid, I might not want to come back home. 15th BYSTANDER IN GUILD LINE I'm pretty, and I have a pure heart, just like a little kid. I came out her to see if maybe someone could kidnap me! 16th BYSTANDER IN GUILD LINE I feel like I've been standing here forever. It's tough on an old woman... SEEKER'S GUILD LEADER(TMLN 1) Hmph! You spotted the entrance. You have a keen eye. This is the office of the legendary Seeker's Guild. We're investigating the sudden appearance of those suspicious mages. We've reason to believe they may be connected to the vanishing children. What do you say? You seem talented enough. Care to help us out? (No) Oh, really... Too bad. We're shorthanded and in a bit of a bind. If you change your mind, stop by anytime! Oh, it's you! So you've decided to help us Seekers after all. (Yes) Oh, you'll help?! That is spectacular! There's something I need you to do right away. Four of out brothers are in the village investigating the weird mages. They must have found some clues by now. Go and speak to the four of them and see what clues they've found so far. The key to this mystery's bound to be in those clues. One of the brothers should be right out here to the left. You have your orders! Come on back when you've gotten clues from all four brothers!! GIRL We spend all of our time here running and racing! There are no adults, so we play and play all day long! If you can reach the goal within 20 seconds, I'll give you some amazing boots! Give it a try? (No) What? Are you chicken? These boots can make you a racing expert, you know! Let me know if you change your mind! So you want the boots after all do you? (Yes) I thought so! Let me explain how this works! The rules are a breeze! All you have to do is reach the goal! Go talk to my friend at the end of the maze. If you get there within 20 seconds of starting, you win! OK, here you go... Ready... GO! GIRL'S FRIEND (if you don't make it) GOAL! Your time is... ___"! Oh, too bad! Try again later! GIRL I've got to get ready. Come talk to me after a bit. Came back to have another go at it, did you? GIRL'S FRIEND (if you do make it) GOAL! Your time was ___"! Congratulations! The boots are over here. Follow me! Oh, and a little advice for you... You'll get back more quickly if you break those cracked blocks over there! Use the boots to race around to your heart's delight! GIRL(after boots) You'd think that racing would be more fun, but... I don't know, I'm bored... SEEKER 1 ... ... ... Hm...so you're a new member of the Seeker's Guild, are you? Let me tell you about the clues our investigation has turned up so far. This odd little mage whispered this to me: "The six..." I'm sure it's connected to this incident somehow! Don't you forget it! SEEKER 2 ... ... ... What was that? You're...a brother of the Seeker's Guild? I see... Well then, listen to the information I've gathered. An apprentice mage disappeared somewhere around here. POOF! Right when she vanished, she whispered something... "Protect..." Now that's suspicious! You would do well to lock that away in your head! SEEKER 3 ... ... ... Oh, so you're here to help with the investigation? That's welcome news! Well then, listen to what I have to tell you! Look! The mage is over there, right? I was hiding over here, watching her, when I heard her call out suddenly... She said, "Beautiful!" suspicious, isn't it? Maybe it's part of a spell or something! What's she up to? SEEKER 4 ... ... ... Oh, so now you're a member of the Seeker's Guild?! Well then, why don't you listen to the clues I've gathered so far! A weird mage is lurking somewhere back here.... I can sometimes hear her talking to herself, and this is what she says: "Deeply connected to this village..." That is most definitely a clue! Go and report this to the chief! MAGE You guys used a Moon Pearl, didn't you? ...I sear! That guy there has been staring at me for quite a while now. Who does that insolent lout think he is? That's just rude! MAGE Eee hee hee hee hee! The girl here has vanished, too. No doubt she is trembling in fear even now! I don't know much about the guild, but watching over us is a waste of time! But let them play cops and robbers if they like! Eee hee hee hee hee hee! MAGE(TMLN 1) You're the boy who awoke Vaati, aren't you? Thank you very much! You've made the world a better place for our kind! You want a Moon Pearl? I suppose it's the least I can do after everything you've done for me. Well, good luck, kid! Eee hee hee hee! MAGE You wanna see if you've got connection to Force Gems or not? (No) Then you're wastin' my time. G'wan, get outta here! (Yes) I see. Then let me spread some Force Gems around outside. I'll give you ten arrows. You shoot 'em with your bow. Any Force Gems you hit are yours to keep. Ready... START! It's done! Eee hee! So, did you feel a connection with the Force Gems? THIEF What's going on here? This used to be one of the best places to meet people. I thought I'd just mingle for a bit, but this joint's as empty as my wallet! Hm... But I don't really want to go next door, either. That strange mage's been over there reading that book of hers forever. Weird! MAN MISSING HIS HOUSE My girl and I were fighting. I took off, and when I came back, my house was gone! I went to her place, but all I found was this strange mage and a Seeker. Where's my house? Where's my girlfriend!?! Ah...I've lost everything... What am I supposed to do now? IRIS My name's Iris! I'm a novice magician. I lost my magic book, and now I don't have the magic to get back home. I tried some spells from memory, and I got this tiny house to appear... But it's so frustrating! Where in the world could my book have gone? SHOP KEEPER Hey! Let's gamble. You won't get into and trouble! Risk 100 Force Gems and see if you can get more! (No way) Wow! Talk about a boring guy! Maybe we can play later? (OK) That's the spirit! OK, now you can open whichever treasure chest you want! SEEKER'S GUILD LEADER Oh, it's you. And you've heard the clues gathered by all our members. ... ... ... Hm...yes...I see... Those strange mages... Yes, that does seem odd... What do you believe the mages' words refer to? (Maidens) ... ... ... Of course... Something's happened to the six beautiful maidens that protect the shrine... That's it, isn't it? Your powers of deduction are truly magnificent! We'll use your findings to continue our investigation! Oh, yes... As thanks for your help, I'd like to give you something. During the course of our inquiry, we dug up a hidden passageway. Try digging by the house of pots in the south- eastern part of the village. You should find a path that will take you to places otherwise unreachable. SIGN Rest area ahead. KID Awesome! You found this secret world, too? Did you notice that there are only kids here? All we do is play and play! No one wants to go home! Not even me! No, sir! Except...the girl in the house with the red roof is always crying. I wonder if she doesn't like it here. KID (again) It's so much fun here! I wonder why that girl does nothing but weep. Don't even bother talking to her. She's no fun. MAGE I can see... I can see... I can see all... I can see Force Gems hidden in the soil! If you seek hidden Force Gems, you must dig with a shovel of steel! RED GIRL Do you want to burn with my flames of passion? (No, Thanks) Hmph! Fine. Whatever. (Yes) Goodness! Really? Then get set to feel the burning of my passion! BLUE GIRL Hmph! You probably like that girl more than you like me, don't you!?! WEEPING GIRL Sniff...sniff... My...boyfriend and I had a fight. It's my fault for always being so stubborn. It can't end over something like this. Will I never see him again? Sniff...sniff... ... ... ... What's that? You... You're going back to your world? ... ... .. Then please help me! Take this letter to him! NARRATOR You took the letter! Savior of romance! MAN MISSING HIS HOUSE ... ... ... What did you say? Is that a letter from my sweetie? Let me see it! Hmm... uh-huh... Oh...ah... I'm so relieved. My sweetie's OK! But she was attacked by a giant tornado and a dark shadow that captured her. Can she be rescued? Hey, you! Do something, please! Sweetie gave me this feather as a good-luck charm... You can have it if you help her! It's great! You'll feel like a bird as you jump around light as a...uh...feather. You can even bound over giant holes! This is all I have left... I want you to have it. MAGE(TMLN 1) That little brat, Iris! I can't believe she's leave such a valuable book just lying around... hey... Aren't you the lads who freed Vaati? What good timing. You know how to get to the Dark World, do you not? If you see my apprentice, a witch named Iris, please give her this book. NARRATOR You got a magic book! It's full of dubious spells! IRIS ...Say, what's that? It's my book!!! Well, I'll be! Pretty impressive for such a little fella. ... ... ... Hm? The guy who owns this house is upset? Oh! I didn't think anyone owned it! I thought I'd just magicked it out of nowhere! I'd better return it right away. here, check this out! As long as I have this book, I can do anything! I really must return this. Abra this, hocus that, shallabazoo! Boo! That should do it! Look back in your world. Then, you'll understand the magnificence of my magic! REUNITED COUPLE MAN Oh! Thank you so very much! I mean, this is all thanks to you, isn't it? My house suddenly appeared out of nowhere, and when I went inside, she was here! Honestly, there are not enough words in the world to tell you how grateful I am! I will never forget you, no matter how long I live! REUNITED COUPLE WOMAN Thank you! I'm so happy for all that you've done for us! Not only did I make it back to this world, but we also made up again! I just hope the rest of the villagers can get help soon, too... OLD WOMAN Because of everything that's been happening in town, I want to get away for a bit. Maybe I'll go to the Eastern Palace. It's nothing like this old village. I really need a vacation, but it's always the first step that's the hardest. I mean, I can't really go anywhere until the rain stops, can I? If you're thinking of going to the palace, you'd better be careful. [Defeat Shadow Link!] HAPPY VILLAGER 1 (starting from far end of screen) You guys saved our village! I guess my eyes weren't that messed up after all! HAPPY VILLAGER 2 Aaaaah... I'll never take the fresh, outside air for granted ever again! HAPPY VILLAGER 3 I can't believe I'm hearing this! Just when I thought everything was normal again! Oh! You're the one who saved the kids, aren't you? Thank you so much! HAPPY VILLAGER 4 Thanks to you guys, me and my boyfriend are getting along great again! And we've promised to be nice to each other from now on! Thank you so much! HAPPY VILLAGER 5 Hey, it's you guys! It's me! You know, Secret Agent One! I just wanted to thank all of you on behalf of my boss, who's just too darned busy. This whole time, we thought it was the mages... But it was just a misunderstanding If it weren't for you guys, we never would have cracked this case. We owe you big! We'd really like you guys to stay here in the village and join our guild. But we understand you can't, so we won't try to force you to stay. But good luck out there! I know you'll pull through, whatever you're doing! HAPPY VILLAGER 6 I was able to return safely thanks to you guys bringing me my book! Of course, my teacher gave me quite an earful for misplacing it... HAPPY VILLAGER 7 Thanks to you, all of the town's children have been returned! We're so happy! Thanks for everything you've done! HAPPY VILLAGER 8 Just playing all the time leaves me feeling a little empty inside. I'm gonna do my chores and study hard to make playing much more enjoyable! STAGE 3: Eastern Temple~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(2.3) GHOSTLY SPIRIT Oooo... Do you ever feel like you're about to get pummeled into oblivion? If you want to get through alive, you need a Moon Pearl. Everyone knows that. I didn't know that. Not until after I'd died... In fact, that's why I died. Tell my wife and son back home that I miss them... Hurrrrk... [Defeat Shadow Link!] YELLOW MAIDEN(TMLN 2) Link! Did you defeat that giant stone eye-thing? Thank you! By defeating that beast, you rescued me from my crystal prison! Thank you, Link. You have my gratitude! The wind sorcerer Vaati has regained his power. When he last tried to conquer Hyrule, he built a Palace of Winds in the Realm of the Heavens. So even now, he's sure to be-- Link! You must first rescue Princess Zelda. Act quickly! I rule over Death Mountain. High stop the peak, the Tower of Flames stands tall. Climb the mountain. One of the maidens must be trapped in the tower of raging lava. Come, Link. I shall guide you. _______________________________________________________________________________ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ LEVEL THREE: Death Mountain~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(3.0) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ STAGE 1: Death Mountain Foothills~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(3.1) YELLOW MAIDEN (fairy form) Link! We're in northern Hyrule, at the base of Death Mountain. Head for the peak! SIGN(TMLN 1) Warning! If you see either Green Link, Red Link, Blue Link, or Purple Link report back at once! OLD MAN(TMLN 1) There's an area near the one-eyed giants called Hebra's Hill. People say that those who enter that region wander lost for all eternity. If you simply meander about with no goal in mind, you'll never reach the summit. You must press on, always focused on your sole intent: to reach the peak! OLD MAN (again) To reach Hebra's Hill, press on straight ahead. OLD MAN IN MOVING HOUSE Oh ho ho ho! At last, at last! I've done it! My lifelong dream... A moving house!!! It's made of a special light, yet sturdy, wood! And fire poses no threat at all! It's absolutely, completely fireproof! Go on and try it! The four of you, step outside and push the house. It'll move! There's one problem, though. Fill the house with furniture and it becomes too heavy to budge. That's why I've had to leave it entirely empty. It's a bit stark, but I like it! OLD MAN IN MOVING HOUSE (again) Test it out! Move it around this empty field! Shove it to your heart's delight! MAGE(TMLN 1) Oh ho ho ho... Such youth... Troubled by the giants are you? We magic users have enchanted two types of medallion. These medallions instantly alter the shape of an evil presence or make it vanish. One of these medallions is in that treasure chest there. It's one that I enchanted myself. You may use it if you like. SIGN Hebra's Hill STAGE 2: The Mountain Path~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(3.2) KAEPORA GAEBORA(TMLN 2) Hoo hoo hoo! Link, there's a colossal bird wearing a mask living on Death Mountain! The giant beast appeared after Vaati stormed the mountain. The mountain's guardians of old--a tribe of Gorons--are troubled by the bird, too. I implore you, go and help the Gorons! They're counting on you, Link! GORON Oh, this is bad! This is very, very bad! Hey! You! C'mon, give me a hand. See that cave? There are water jars in there. Throw 'em and put out the fire. GORON KID There's been this weird bird up on top of Death Mountain a lot lately. It flies around the peak day after day. It's huge! And the mask it's wearing! I've never seen anything so scary! If you go ask my dad, I'm sure he'd crack that mask for you. GORON KID IN CAVE That pot's filled with a lot of oil, so be careful! If you accidentally break it... KABOOM! My dad says you're welcome to use it if you need to burn stuff. GORON ... ... ... What? You made the new road? That's so helpful! Thank you! That new road you built has been a lifesaver! Or at least, a time-saver... I'm gonna take a quick rest, and then I'm headed for the summit. GORON Oh, not good! Someone built a house here while I was gone. That was fast! It's covering the hole I buried my most precious belonging in... If there were just some way to move that house aside... THIEF H-Hey! Did you see one of those Gorons out front? I don't know what he's thinking, but he's been shaking my house like crazy! I planted stakes outside to hold my house in place, but that guy is stupid strong. GORON (after house is moved) Whoa! Oh, whoa! That big ol' house just moved! Yeah, all those stakes stuck around the house were such a pain. But now that they're gone I can just push that house around all I want! KID GORON I can't even believe he's a Goron... It's just shameful! Fire doesn't bug us! Listen, brother! Go give that pitiful Goron a solid thumping! Knock some sense back into his rocky head!! GORON Darn it! Where'd he go! It's a disgrace! Since when is a Goron afraid of fire!? We've been looking for him everywhere. I bet he buried himself again. What are we going to do? He still has the key... UPROOTED GORON 1-4 Yaaaawwwnnn... I was sleeping so soundly... Let me be, will you? UPROOTED GORON 1-4 (again) What is it? Do you need something? UPROOTED GORON 5 Hey! What was that for!? I was trying to hide!! You're a meanie! UPROOTED GORON 6 You found me! Good work! And I thought that was a pretty good hiding spot! [Defeat Shadow Link!] KAEPORA GAEBORA(TMLN 1) The giant bird is just up ahead. It is quite fast, so keep your eyes open. We bird folk like to fly high and gaze down on the land. This area is especially nice. We'll not let beautiful Hyrule be taken by these dark beings. ...Hm? That's Hyrule Castle... I believe you've driven off its darkness already, but... Something's not right. I shall go and investigate! You keep going! Get rid of that bird and save the maiden from the Tower of Flames! We shall meet again! STAGE 3: Tower of Flames~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(3.3) [Defeat Shadow Link!] GORON Oh, this isn't good. I brought my bombs all this way, and then I dropped 'em. They went right into the lava, too. And I thought I had a good plan... I was gonna use them on the monsters around here. You should watch out for them. I mean, if they can toast me, they're sure to burn you to a crisp. Oh, hey! I can teach you an IN-credible way of dealing with those pesky things. What do you say? Would you like to hear it? (No, Thanks) ...Huh? Are you sure? You might regret it later. Well, I won't hold it against you. If you change your mind, just come see me. All it will take is one good toasting, and you'll learn your lesson the hard way. GORON (again) Hey, there, brother! Want to hear my great plan for slaying Dodongos? (Sure) Great! I'll show you! The problem is those things have skin as hard as rock. Even with my strength, it's a waste to hit them. I can't even make a dent! But then it came to me! They may be tough on the outside but weak on the INSIDE! So right when they open their mouths to breather fire, gulp! And then... BLAMMO! What a great idea! ...But then I dropped my bombs in the lava! Ugh! I can't believe it! KAEPORA GAEBORA Hoo hoot! Link! Danger has struck Hyrule Castle once again! The darkness we thought vanquished has returned. Perhaps some dark agent remained hidden, waiting for the right moment to strike. Where there is great evil, though there may also be an imprisoned shrine maiden. You must tell the maiden of this tower! We cannot abandon Hyrule Castle! GREEN MAIDEN(TMLN 2) You passed through the flames to rescue me! Such bravery. You're just like the Knights of Hyrule! You've heard of the Knights of Hyrule, of course! They're the pride of the kingdom! They would lay down their lives for honor! In Hyrule, four sacred jewels can open the path to the Realm of the Heavens. The safety of these jewels has for ages been entrusted to the Knights o Hyrule. And yet, in these dark times, the knights are nowhere to be seen... I cannot hide my fears. ... ... ... Pardon? Master Kaepora Gaebora, you say? Is that so... Well then, we must go to Hyrule Castle! We must liberate the castle! _______________________________________________________________________________ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ LEVEL FOUR: Near the Fields~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(4.0) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ STAGE 1: The Fields~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(4.1) GREEN MAIDEN (fairy form) Link! Hyrule Castle fights an even greater darkness than before! GREEN MAIDEN (fairy form) (next screen) Hm? What's that girl doing out there all by herself? Link, please, you must speak with her! If she stays out there alone, she's bound to be attacked! MALON(TMLN 1) Um, excuse me... Were you just talking to...a green fairy? I saw it! There was a beautiful fairy fluttering around you! Amazing! What Poppa told me really is true! He said that good boys and girls get to meet fairies! Like today! I was coming home after running errands but...I couldn't get back. I mean, it started raining, and the castle guards were moving all the cannons... The cannons are really old, and they're not meant to be used... It was really weird. Say, if you're all going on ahead, take me with you! You're friends with the green fairy, so of course it's OK, right? (No) But why? I'm sure the green fairy would take me! And you're friends with the green fairy, so you must be a good kid. Please! Take me home! (Yes) Oh, great! Thanks! My name's Malon! I'm from the Lon Lon Ranch right up the road. It's not very far... Thanks, again! MALON (later) Poppa! POPPA Oh... Malon! You're late! The rain's coming down so hard, I was beginning to worry! In fact, I'd gotten so worried that I was about to go looking for you! MALON(TMLN 1) To tell the truth, Poppa, these young boys rescued me! The soldiers in the castle we behaving so oddly, and I couldn't get past them. They were moving the old cannons around...and they even aimed their bows at me! POPPA What? Really? That IS Strange. Something must have gotten into them. What could be going on? I wonder if something's happened at Hyrule Castle. Malon, I'm just glad that you made it home safely. It sounded like a close call! My thanks to all of you for saving my poor Malon! I'd love to give you a token of my gratitude! Hmmm...let's see... I've got it! If you're going to continue your trip, you should go on horseback! This castle guards are sure to be headed this way, and there are more ahead, too. You'll be much safer riding my swift horses, I'm sure! Our farms right next door. We've lots of carrots around, so take some with you. Those horses love carrots! They'll come running if you've got some handy. Thank you once again! I'll never forget what you've done! MALON (again) Thanks to all of you, I made it back home safely! I hate to admit it, but at first, I wasn't sure I could really count on you guys. But it turns out, you guys are the best! You're real heroes! I think I finally understand why you guys are friends with the green fairy. Thank you so much! POPPA (again) We're so scared that we do nothing but sit at home and stare at the walls. Oh yeah, at the bottom of the stairs in front of our house, there's a storeroom. It's full of stuff we never use, so if you see anything you need, just take it! STONE TABLET Carrots for horses! Help yourself! Take a carrot? (No) You don't need that now! (Yes) You got a carrot! Take it out of your crystal ball when you need a horse. SIGN -If you get trapped- The fence is low, so you can lift things across it. SIGN -Tingle Times- Volume 3 Tingle hears that little boys and girls who behave get to meet a fairy here. Perhaps if Tingle does his best to be kind, he may meet this fairy face to face! Here's a good deed! I'll put up road signs! ...Someone's Storeroom then ...Strange Cave ...Someone's House Praise my kindness! Tingle THIEF IN HOUSE Hey! I can't believe you're out with all those monsters around. You know, if I just had a weapon, I'd do something about them... But the problem is I can't even get to the shed where all our weapons are stored! Ooo! I know! Since you don't mind going outside, can you slay all the one-eyed monsters? If you do, you can use whatever you want from the storage shed. Will you slay the monsters? (No Way) What? Why not? Well, come tell me if you change your mind. THIEF IN HOUSE (again) Hey! It's you! Will you slay the monsters? (Sure) Really? Sweet! There are lots of weapons and stuff in the storage shed. I'm sure you'll find a good use for at least one of them! Take whatever you want. Just get rid of all the one-eyed monsters! Here's the key to the storage shed. Take it with you! THIEF (again) I'm counting on you to get rid of the monsters! OLD MAN IN HOUSE Hah... I know what my son says about the weapons in the storage shed... but they're no match for the one-eyed monsters. A greater weapon may lie in the cave to the north, where my ancestors rest. But the earth there has crumbled to bits, making it impossible to get there. OLD MAN IN HOUSE (again) Hmm... There must be some way to get in that cave... STONE TABLET IN CAVE Follow the Great Fairy of the Fountain's counsel to wake the secret power... STONE TABLETS IN SECRET CAVE ... ... ... ... (Looks like an old grave) THIEF IN HOUSE (after slaying monsters) ... What's that? You say you destroyed all the one-eyed monsters? That's great! Thank you! I really should reward you! Uh... Gee... What can I give you... ... Umm... You're headed to Hyrule Castle? ...Oh! I know! There's this giant tree that's blocking the path to the castle... But I dug a huge passageway so I could get into the castle. Once I was done with it, I sealed it up, but you could dig it open if you wanted. Take this shovel in exchange for your help. You can dig holes with it! There's a spot north of our shed where there might be an underground cave. You should start digging around there and try to find it. If you have a hard time finding it, try going to the Great Fairy's Fountain. The fairy there can make this a powerful shovel! OLD MAN IN HOUSE (again) Oh! You again? What? You slew all the monsters? Oh, thank you so much! You can see my son for your reward. Finally, it's safe to go outside again. And it's all thanks to you! BLUE KNIGHT OF HYRULE(TMLN 2) I am the Knight of Hyrule charged with guarding the blue royal jewel. To my shame, I fell under the sway of dark powers and was transformed into a base creature of magic. The jewel was also cursed, and it became a portal to the Dark World. I am sorry for the citizens of Hyrule who suffered... and for Princess Zelda! I trust you are going to the Realm of the Heavens and the Palace of Winds. However, you must first gather the royal jewels to reveal the path to the Tower of Winds. There are three other guardian knights. I fear they too have been changed. Free them from their dark curses and retrieve the jewels! The light must return to Hyrule! I entrust you with the blue royal jewel. And with it, I place in your hands the hopes of all Hyrule! NARRATOR You got a blue jewel! You have three more jewels left to find! STAGE 2: The Swamp~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(4.2) KAEPORA GAEBORA(TMLN 1) Be cautious, Link. A poison swamp lies ahead! Vaati! I curse the name! His actions have poisoned the very land! The creatures who lived here have long since fled the effects of his foul presence. Now all that remains are monsters and floating weeds that lead travelers astray. I believe you can vanquish this foulness and return Hyrule to its former beauty. Link, my friend, take care not to get lost and drown in this poisonous swamp! SIGN -Tingle Times- Volume 4 Tingle got stuck in icky sludge! It was so...slimy! Tingle must write this all down so that the same thing doesn't happen next time. I will gracefully flit from leaf to handy leaf, jumping with such joy. Almost like skipping from Zora to Zora! Tingle GHOSTLY GIRL I came here on a dare, but all of my friends vanished, and now I'm all alone. A ghost told me that they'd all gone home. How mean! Oooh... I'm scared... DAMPE(TMLN 2) It's dangerous out. You shouldn't be wandering around. This shadowy guy gas been stirring up trouble lately. Actually he looks like you! My name's Dampe. I'm supposed to be the caretaker at this here graveyard. Only I can't take care of a single thing right now. I'm helpless!!! These creatures, they are so pleased. They treat our world like their new home. Listen up, boys. Legends speak of a mirror in which a dark tribe was sealed away long ago. I understand it's supposed to be hidden now somewhere in the Forest of Light. The forest's been covered by pitch-black clouds recently. It's a Forest of Dark now. Yep, no mistake about it... Something bad's a-brewin' there. GHOSTLY SPIRIT I came to visit my departed wife's grave. Then she showed up, saying she came to visit MY grave... I wish someone would tell me which one of us is the ghost and which isn't! STAGE 3: Infiltration of Hyrule Castle~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(4.3) WHITE MAIDEN(TMLN 2) Link... Thank you. You carry my hopes with you...as well as all of Hyrule's. Wait... Is that the blue royal jewel you carry? How did you come by it? Is that so? The Knights of Hyrule... So even the jewels are now... Link, all we can do is put our faith in the light and press on overcoming each obstacle that confronts us. My forest has lost its light. Darkness covers it like a shroud. Link, will you go to the forest? Perhaps you will find some clues there. In the heart of the forest is a temple. The Dark Mirror can be found there. Long ago, a dark tribe invaded Hyrule. They were defeated and imprisoned within the mirror. The tribe's mirror prison was then secreted away and hidden in the forest temple to sever its connection to this world. That Dark Mirror must never fall into the hands of those with evil hearts. Link! The mirror is a danger in anyone's hands but yours. No one else can be trusted. Retrieve the Dark Mirror from the palace, and keep it until Princess Zelda is safe. Please. You are the only one we can depend on... First, let us proceed to the forest. _______________________________________________________________________________ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ LEVEL FIVE: The Dark World~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(5.0) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ STAGE 1: Lost Woods~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(5.1) WHITE MAIDEN(TMLN 1) (fairy form) Link, this is the Forest of Light. Or rather, it once was. Now, the darkness grows deep, and the air stagnant. I wonder if some clue might reveal itself here. It seems that many foul beasts are gathering here. Perhaps you might be able to learn something from them. SIGN -Tingle Times- Volume 5 Ooh, everywhere I go, woods, woods, and more woods! Lost Woods everywhere! Here's a solitary road sign just for you! Woods Woods Woods Perfect! Tingle DEKU SCRUB(TMLN 2) Everything's going swell lately! And we have Ganon, King of Darkness, to thank! Huh? Vaati? What's that? No, Vaati's old news. Ganon's the King of Darkness! Forget Vaati! DEKU SCRUB Oopipi! Are you lost? Oopipipipipi! Yeah! Yeah! You'll be lost forever!! [Link stumbles upon Deku Scrubs circled around some type of skull shrine] DEKU SCRUB 1(TMLN 1) (starting at bottom, going clockwise) Soon, Lord Ganon's power will change all of Hyrule's forests into Lost Woods! Once that happens, we'll be able to travel freely! DEKU SCRUB 2 Gwee hee! I locked up the shovel and hid the key to keep strangers from finding it! And let's not forget my impeccable work guarding it personally! There's no way anyone will ever get their hands on the shovel! DEKU SCRUB 3(TMLN 1) Make sure that all who enter the forest remain here! Lord Ganon's orders! But we're trying to build an underground road that will let us go anywhere... Anyway, we've hidden every single shovel we could find! If there are no holes, no one will ever find our road. We're absolutely brilliant! DEKU SCRUB 4 Ah... I love darkness. It's so soothing, so relaxing. DEKU SCRUB 5 Digging holes in woods this big is tough work when your shovel's been taken away. We move four times as fast in Deku Scrub formation tough, so it'll be a breeze. You know, doubt anyone else could come up with such a cunning plan! DEKU SCRUB 6(TMLN 1) Thanks to Ganon, we were awakened from our slumber! DEKU SCRUB 7 The Lost Woods is our birthplace! If you wander lost here for too long, you too can become a Deku Scrub! DEKU SCRUB 8 Uh-oh! I forgot about the hole I dug as a joke the other day... I'll need to sneak away later, grab a shovel, and look for it... DEKU SCRUB 9 I captured the Great Fairy so that if someone steals my shovel... he won't be able to power it up! DEKU SCRUB 10 Where the heck did Decci go?! That slacker should try helping out once in a while! DEPPI THE DEKU SCRUB We're busy getting rid of things in the woods that are bad for Deku Scrubs. This is the dumping ground. No one's allowed here except for magical creatures! DEPPI THE DEKU SCRUB (again) If you want to help, you've got to ask Dekki! Dekki's around somewhere. He likes dark places, so go find him yourself! DEKKI THE DEKU SCRUB Hm. You're not a Deku Scrub, so why are you even here? Do you wanna help us? (No) Pfeh! I'm busy here! I don't have time for your nonsense! G'wan, get outta here! DEKKI THE DEKU SCRUB (again) Boy, oh, boy! Took you long enough! If you want to work, all you have to do's say so! Hey! What's going on? Hey! Do you want some work? (Yes) Really? Is that so? That's a big help! I was in deep trouble, 'cuz there weren't enough Deku Scrubs! Now, uh...were you the one who's going to help? I see... Just you, huh? Jeez, I got 50 guys helping me, you know?! I'm just saying you should have a helper... or two...or three. Oh, whatever. C'mon, let's just get started. You ready? I'm gonna name three items, and I want you to remember each of 'em! I ain't repeating myself!! Then you go into the woods, nab 'em, and bring 'em back. And in order, you hear!? [Dekki chooses three random items from the following: water jar, stone, grass, oil pot, sign, or bomb.] 1. Water jar 2. Stone 3. Grass So go take all those things I told you about and get 'em to Deppi in that order! You make any mistakes, and you're fired! now, get movin'! Time's a-wastin'! DEKKI THE DEKU SCRUB (again) Cut out all the chatter while you're on the job! Show some control! DEPPI THE DEKU SCRUB (after talking to Dekki) Don't dawdle! Bring it here! DEPPI THE DEKU SCRUB (with wrong item) Grrrrrr! That's not what you were supposed to bring! You're useless! You're fired!! DEPPI THE DEKU SCRUB (again) You've been fired, so scram! Now! DEKKI THE DEKU SCRUB (after getting fired) That's it! You're fired! You want to get your job back, show me you got guts! DEKKI THE DEKU SCRUB (after leaving and coming back) What? You again? Aren't you the whelp that just got fired? You're back to give it a second shot, is that it? [Dekki gives you another list of items] DEPPI THE DEKU SCRUB (with first item on list) OK! That's one down! Now hurry up and bring the next one! DEPPI THE DEKU SCRUB (with second item on list) All right, that's number two! Just one more to go! DEPPI THE DEKU SCRUB (with final item on list) That's all of them! Your job's finished! Now give Dekki the good news! DEPPI THE DEKU SCRUB (again) There's nothing left for you to give me! Get going and report to Dekki! DEKKI THE DEKU SCRUB (after job's finished) Nice work! You're not as worthless as you look, you know that? That's it! Job's done! You did well, so I'm gonna give you a special reward! A Power Bracelet! Put this on and you can move even the heaviest things! DEKKI THE DEKU SCRUB (again) Hey there! How you doin'? Help us make all woods Deku Scrub-friendly environments! DEPPI THE DEKU SCRUB (after talking to Dekki) You've got promise. That's why you should become Deku Scrubs! SIGN -Deku Scrub Bulletin Board- If you're not a Deku Scrub, stop reading! Now!!! When you're done with the key used to lock the place where we hid the shovels, be sure to put it back where you got it from! DEKU SCRUB(TMLN 1) I adore Lord Ganon, but that shady guy who looks like you ain't so great. He's not one of us, but he still pushes us around like he's some kinda big shot! STAGE 2: Kakariko Village~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(5.2) KAEPORA GAEBORA(TMLN 2) Do you know this village, Link? Kakariko was once home to many kind people. Now however, it's become a rather dangerous place. The darkness that cloaks its people has cost many of them their humanity. It's madness. How much stronger will this darkness in Hyrule grow? Hoo hoot? Dark Mirror? Hoo... So the shrine maidens have said they want you to watch over it? Link... You've proven yourself to be trustworthy and reliable. There's no need for me to fuss about. I entrust the future of Hyrule to you! I'm going to take to the skies and check on the rest of Hyrule. Forge on, Link! Hyrule is counting on you! SIGN -Tingle Times- Volume 6 WAAAAAAAAHHHHH! Tingle's been had! Someone's stolen his precious Force Gems! This village is filled to the brim with thieves! It's not fair... If you see the culprit, please catch him for Tingle! Show no mercy! Tingle WOMAN !!! Wh-What are you doing to our village?!? Hurry up and put those fires out! And then get out of our village! WOMAN (after fires are out) Wait, you aren't that dark, shadowy guy, are you? But, uh, you are the one who made it rain, aren't you? ...Thank you. OLD MAN IN HOUSE ... ... ... ... ... Darling... What will I ever do without you... LETTER ON TABLE Dearest, we've been married now for 56 years, and you've always been so good to me. After I'm gone, please don't let yourself be too sad for too long. If you get lonely, get yourself a cute Cucco as a pet. If you do, perhaps you'll be able to forget some of your sorrow. Good-bye, old timer. We'll meet again one day. OLD MAN IN HOUSE (with Cucco) ... ... ... ... ... Ah, what an adorable Cucco. It warms my old heart. After my wife passed on, I was prepared to spend the rest of my days alone... But now that I've seen that Cucco... Would you...let me take care of it for you? I'll give you this key, and you can even take as many Force Gems as you like. If I have that Cucco by my side, I won't need anything else. OLD MAN IN HOUSE (again) Her last wish was that I adopt myself a pet Cucco. What a little cutie... MAGE IN HOUSE Ohh...there! I can see it! The future... What it holds for you. It's in my crystal. For 100 Force Gems, I'll tell you what I see. OK? (No) What do you mean? Does the future...frighten you? Ah, well... Come again... (Yes) To tickle my fortune-telling fancy, I'll need 100 Force Gems. ...Iddly biddly... ...Babbledy goobledy... Alakawhoopity! Force Gems: # of s Hearts: # of s Total: # of s (if reading is bad) Uncontrollable power will be unleashed! ...Jibba jabba... ...Shoobeedoo... ...Yow! You lost 300 Force Gems... I'm sneaky, aren't I? (if reading is neutral) Common days... Monotonous life... It's all so ordinary... The crystal shows the same old you with no changes at all... It's a shame, isn't it? Let me do this for you. You got 1 Force Gem! And you should be thankful you even got that much! That'll hold you for a while, won't it? (if reading is good) An unexpected blessing may make an appearance! ...Jibba jabba... ...Shoobeedoo... ...Yow! You got 200 Force Gems! Bask In Force light! I'm good, aren't I? MAN BEHIND MAGE The thief whose hideout is under the tree at the town entrance is awful. I think he stole all of my Force Gems while I was out on my apprenticeship. MAN Leave the village and follow a mighty river downstream. and you'll find a temple. You should go there and swear your allegiance to the great king. STONE TABLET INSIDE GROTTO This road splits one fate into two. Welcome to the dungeon of mystery! Those who wish to try their luck for items start here.

STONE TABLET BY GROTTO EXIT Tackling the destiny that lies before you is an important part of life. OLD MAN WITH SHOVEL There are a lot of thieves in these parts. That's why I dug a pit to trap 'em! And it looks like I've caught someone in it! C'mon, youngsters! If you'll dig, I'll point out where that pit is! OLD MAN WITH SHOVEL (again) There! Dig there! OLD MAN WITH SHOVEL (after hole is found) Look at that! Found a pit, did you? Probably nothin' in there but a thief, I'm guessing. OLD MAN WITH CAGE I've built a fence around the village to keep any thieves from escaping! If you want to leave the village, you have to capture ten thieves first. All you gotta do is lift the rascals up with the R Button and put 'em in the cage. I'm countin' on you. OLD MAN WITH CAGE (again) You still have __ thieves left to capture. I know their hideout's around here somewhere. Use the R Button to lift 'em up and put 'em in this cage. Nab every last one of them miscreants even the once holed up in their lair. TREASURE CHEST Too bad! You got nothing! OLD MAN WITH CAGE (after catching ten thieves) Well, I'll be! Did you really capture every last one of the thieves? What a relief that is. Now that they're all gone, I can take that fence down. You can come and go as you please from now on. OLD MAN WITH CAGE (again) Looks like peace and quiet will return to our village. No need for me to look out my window for thieves anymore. What a relief! And we have you to thank for all of this! OLD MAN BY TORCHES You've seen it, of course, haven't you? All the trouble we've been having with fires around the village? What we need is a good downpour, but there's nary a drop of rain to be had. I'd say a rain prayer, but I can't very well use the flame from our own fires. Hmm... Gotta do something, or the village is doomed. What to do... OLD MAN BY TORCHES (again) What I really need is a good flame to use as part of my rain prayer. (after torches are lit) Oh...rain! Blessed. blessed rain... But...this is a bit...too much rain... I don't know why, but this doesn't feel right. ZORA Oh, I'm so hungry... I want to chow down on those fish, but I can't catch 'em! If you can get 10 or more of them in my mouth, I'll give you a reward! Do you want to try? Hm? Do you? (No) I'm famished... Go away! (Yes) I'm really famished, so you've got to do it within a minute! Ready... GO! Hold it! Oh, that was tasty! Here's your reward. I'm stuffed! SICK KID(TMLN 1) Cough cough... Did... Did you put out the fires? I'm always getting sick, and when those thugs started the fires...cough... I had to stay locked away in here for my health. I'd like to give you something for rescuing our village. There's a treasure buried in a pit in my yard. You'll get more out of it than I ever will. So...cough...I want you to have it. (again) My most special treasure, my bug net... It got burned up... It's so sad. I used to dream about going to the forest with it when I got better. [Defeat Shadow Link!] GREEN KNIGHT OF HYRULE(TMLN 2) Bearer of the Four Sword. I am the Knight of Hyrule charged with guarding the green royal jewel. The Four Sword was the seal to Vaati's prison. If you have it, that means the seal has been broken. Yet the one who enshrouded me in darkness was not Vaati! It was... Ah! If the one who enchanted me and turned the jewel into a dark portal wanted Vaati restored... His goal must be to use Vaati to remake Hyrule into a land of darkness. Listen to me, heroes. You must never forget that Vaati is not the only foe you face. I will follow my brother knight's lead and entrust to you this green royal jewel. Now go! You and the Four Sword! STAGE 3: Temple of Darkness~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(5.3) [Several Deku Scrubs stand near the entrance to the Temple of Darkness] DEKU SCRUB 1 (starting from left) We're here to make sure no shady types get into the temple! You guys look like a bunch of weaklings, though. If you go in, you'll get stomped. Ah, but it's a free world... You can go get stomped if you want! Ha ha ha hah! DEKU SCRUB 2 The inside of the temple is a rough place. You'll get torn up in no time! You'd better be prepared! DEKU SCRUB 3(TMLN 1) Hey! Why have you come to the Temple of Darkness? Are you here to see Lord Ganon?! DEKU SCRUB 4 You'll learn how strong Lord Ganon is soon enough! DEKU SCRUB 5(TMLN 1) Lord Ganon told us to keep watch for any travelers moving in groups of four. And there are four of you, aren't there? Geh heh heh... But Lord Ganon would never be afraid of kids like you. He must mean someone else. DEKU SCRUB 6 Whew... I'm beat! I've come all the way from the Lost Woods to pay my respects. DEKU SCRUB IN FOUNDATION(TMLN 1) Grrr! What a bunch of thugs! Blowing up our foundation with your stupid little bombs! That's right! This is the foundation for the glorious Lord Ganon's statue! It's not done yet, so don't go manhandling it, punks! Just be careful, because if there are holes to the north and south of it, it'll move! DEKU SCRUB IN FOUNDATION (after move) Gwaaaaaaa!!! You... You moved our precious foundation! You... You dared to touch it!! What do you think you're doing? You're so mean!! Wahhh!!! DEKU SCRUB 1 We're planning a cool stone monument to put up here! The inscription's been finalized and everything! "1. Put four in a vertical line." That's what it'll say! Is that cool or what?! DEKU SCRUB 2 We're planning a stylish stone monument to put up here! The inscription's been finalized and everything! "2. Break oil pots." Now is that or is that not the very height of style?! Seriously, am I right? DEKU SCRUB 3 We're planning a grand stone monument to put here! The inscription's been finalized and everything! "3. On the left wall." One of the best inscriptions ever, am I right?! DEKU SCRUB 4 We're planning a sweet stone monument to put up here! The inscription's been finalized and everything! "4. Four push together as one." That's super sweet, right? WHITE MAIDEN (fairy form) (TMLN 2) Ah! The Dark Mirror... Someone's stolen the Dark Mirror! That mirror reveals the wickedness within a person and brings it to life. It's an item of terrible, dark power. No good can come from this. Shadow Link!! Could he be your evil reflection, cast by the Dark Mirror? If that were the motive of the mirror's thief... This is disastrous! If we don't get the mirror back, Hyrule will be overrun with evil Shadow Links. The mirror... Who took it? And where? WHITE MAIDEN (fairy form) The red shrine maiden's in trouble! The Mirror! The Dark Mirror! RED MAIDEN(TMLN 1) The white maiden? I'm worried about the mirror, too. Who could have stolen it? And what of the other shrine maidens? Has Princess Zelda been rescued? WHITE MAIDEN(TMLN 2) (fairy form) The whereabouts of the purple maiden and the princess are still... We still have no clear idea of who stole the mirror. However, there is something that disturbs me. When those...things...first entered my woods, they spoke of their dark lord. "Ganon, Ganon," they chanted. It was as though they were...worshipping. RED MAIDEN(TMLN 3) Ganon... I've heard that name before. No wait... It was Ganondorf... But, no... That man was of the Gerudo tribe. I can't imagine these creatures worshipping some desert nomad. There's a Gerudo village in the desert. I doubt there is any connection, but it cannot hurt to check the village. Beyond the village lie ruins and an ancient pyramid. They are so old that no living creature knows very much about them. All I can tell you is that no on who sets foot in the pyramid ever returns. If one of the maidens is there, I fear for her safety. Link... Despite all of this, we must go there. Let us be on our way! To the endless desert sands! _______________________________________________________________________________ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ LEVEL SIX: The Desert of Doubt~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(6.0) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ STAGE 1: Desert of Doubt~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(6.1) RED MAIDEN (fairy form) Take heed, Link. The road you must take is enveloped in a fierce wind. But remember how far you've traveled. You must proceed. You must go forward. You can meet any obstacle that arises. I believe that. A Gerudo village lies due north of here. Go and speak with them. GERUDO(TMLN 1) Welcome. It's been a long time since we've seen any travelers here. This village is our home. We are the dwellers in the desert, the Gerudo tribe. The village is in a bit of an uproar contending with a man who broke our laws. We can't do much for you, but make yourself at home. GERUDO IN TENT(TMLN 2) The pyramid is sacred to our people. To have a criminal such as him enter... His presence stains its holy ground. GERUDO IN TENT(TMLN 3) The Desert Temple was built to keep people away from the pyramid. None who enter the pyramids or the temple have ever returned. They are tombs. Yet the man has gone there by himself. All for the sake of his own mad desire! GERUDO IN TENT(TMLN 3) Once every 100 years, a special child is born unto my people. That child is destined to be the mighty guardian of the Gerudo and the desert. But this child, its heart grew twisted with every passing year. The child became a man who hungered for power at any price. GERUDO IN TENT(TMLN 2) Curse that Ganondorf! He broke our laws and left for the pyramid... I don't know what he plans, but I am worried... GERUDO IN TENT(TMLN 1) Within this desert, an ancient temple slumbers amid ruins. A perpetual sandstorm blows here, a barrier to hinder those who seek to enter. If you plunge headlong into the sands, you'll wind up right where you started. GERUDO ELDER(TMLN 2) Tell me travelers what brings you to these borderlands? Hmm... I see... You came on word of the maidens, eh? Yes, this Ganondorf you speak of is a member of the Gerudo. But his intent is unknown to me. He has flouted the law and fled for the pyramid. To reach the pyramid, one must first pass the trial of the Desert Temple. The villain Ganondorf will no doubt draw his last breath failing this trial. We've blocked the road to the desert to keep other fools from coming. But considering the crisis in Hyrule, we've no reason to stop you brave lads. Go to the entrance of the village and speak to the guards at the gate. GERUTO ELDER (again) The world is in turmoil. The desert and her storms have grown fierce. Please rescue the maidens...and our world. GERUDO AT GATE(TMLN 1) From here on, the sandstorms are brutal. Kids like you will never make it through! GERUDO AT GATE (after talking to elder) ... ... ... Eh? You've received special permission? Well, then... I've no choice, do I? Go ahead. Go on through. Remember though, the storms ahead are terrible. Be careful out there. GERUDO AT GATE (again) The sandstorms grow more fierce from here on. Be careful. STONE TABLET The road to truth will open only for those who oppose the inconstant winds. ZUNA MAN(TMLN 2) Oh, visitors to this village are truly rare, you know? We of the Zuna tribe live in this village. We may not look it now. but we are descended from the wise pyramid builders! ZUNA MAN IN TENT(TMLN 1) The man who came from the south a while back gave off bad vibes. I waved and everything, but the jerk just ignored me! Hmph! ZUNA WOMAN IN TENT I'll give you a sand rub for 100 Force Gems! It's a special massage that's good for the heart! (No thanks.) And I was going to give you a sand massage, too... Oh well! Next time! (Sure.) 100 Force Gems exactly. Here's your massage! Rub rub...rub... Squeeze here... Squeeze there... Rub...rub rub... A bit more here... A bit less there... There you go! All done! Whew! That is fantastic! ZUNA MAN IN TENT(TMLN 2) Do you want to know the secret of the pyramid? When we're young, we're told all the legends of the pyramid! There are many frightening tales about the pyramid. They say there's an evil force... No, wait... They say there's no evil force. Wait...which one was it? Evil force or no evil force? ZUNA WOMAN IN TENT(TMLN 1) I was wandering about and came across this temple in the desert. Eh? Where was it? Uhm...let's see... I had no business there, so I forgot. ZUNA MINI-GAMER Will your Force Gems multiply or dropify? Risk 100 Force Gems and see! What do you say? (Forget It) Too bad... Save up your Force Gems and try again. (I'll Risk It) Excellent! Then open the chest of your choice! (if the multiply) Talk about lucky! 150 Force Gems! (if they dropify) Wrong! You get 1 Force Gem! (if you break even) 100 Force Gems! You broke even! ZUNA UNDER DESERT To go west from here, you must take uniform steps and move slowly. or else! [Defeat Shadow Link!] RED KNIGHT OF HYRULE(TMLN 2) I am the Knight of Hyrule charged with guarding the red royal jewel. Hear now the doom of the knights. We were bested by a foe with a mighty weapon. He cast us into the Dark World, were we and the jewels were lost in shadow. The Tower of Winds vanished, and I... No, WE servants of the crown were turned into monsters! The man that defeated us is also the same man who created that shadowy imp. A man from the desert wastes... He is not Vaati. Your dark twin was sent by him to trick you into breaking Vaati's seal. I wonder were the fiend got the amazing power he now wields. It matters not! None of this allows me to aid Princess Zelda. And yet I cannot go on... Brave ones...I entrust the red royal jewel to you. You now possess three of them. Obtain the fourth, and bring light back to the Realm of the Heavens! STAGE 2: Desert Temple~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(6.2) STONE TABLET To he who would be tested, use both body and spirit to pull the watchman forth. [Defeat Shadow Link!] STAGE 3: Pyramid~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(6.3) ZUNA WOMAN Oh! This is SO frustrating! The floor's filled with holes, and I can't go anywhere! I wish I could fly like a Pegasus... If only I had boots that could do that! RED MAIDEN(TMLN 2) (fairy form) Hm? That writing on those large rocks... It's in an ancient tongue... Let's see if I can read it. ... ... ... Seek...you...the world? Seek you...power? Does your...soul...despise peace and...thirst for... more? Does you soul...cry... for...destruction and... conquest? We...grant you...power to ...ruin...the world. The power of...darkness. Evil...spirit of magic trident. You are...the... King of Darkness. ... ... ... Evil spirit... Spirit of magic? Trident? This indentation is in the shape of a weapon. Do you think the person who took this trident was... Ganondorf?!? The King of Darkness is not Vaati? Does this mean this wicked man is somewhere in Hyrule plotting even now? Link! The situation is even more desperate than I believed! We must hurry! PURPLE MAIDEN(TMLN 1) Link! You've come to my aid? You came to this pyramid of no return just to rescue me? Oh, thank you, Link! ...Princess Zelda? Is this true? So she's still in the clutches of those creatures? My sisters, show yourselves please. [The six shrine maidens gather] SHRINE MAIDENS(TMLN 1) We'll work together to find Princess Zelda! Let our six hearts be one... Now let us call to her! [Princess Zelda appears in a dark crystal] PRINCESS ZELDA(TMLN 1) ... ... ... ... ...Ah! Link?! Is that you? And the shrine maidens! You're all safe... I'm so relieved. Link, I'm in the Tower of Winds. This is no longer the tranquil road to the Realm of the Heavens. Vaati's underlings have turned it into a frozen fortress. Hurry, Link! Vaati's power grows ever stronger, even as we speak... [An evil laugh is heard as the screen fades; the six maidens appear again] SHRINE MAIDENS(TMLN 1) Ah! Princess Zelda! The Tower of Winds!! She is trapped in the Tower of Wind, which has now vanished from Hyrule... Accursed Vaati! The princess is in danger! Link! Quickly, you must get the last royal jewel and bring back the tower! You heroes have crossed Hyrule and gathered three of the jewels. There's only one place left to search. Frozen Hyrule, where the power of darkness keeps spring at bay... The last royal jewel must be there! No matter the cost to us, Princess Zelda must be rescued!!

If we enshrine the royal jewels on the Four Sword's sacred ground, the temple may reappear. We'll go on ahead and guard the sacred ground from our foe until you arrive. The power of darkness has halted the flow of time here, and winter lingers on. We must believe in tomorrow and hold true to our hope. May our passion keep our hearts from freezing! Link, you must first seek out the final royal jewel! Then, we will go to the Tower of Winds, where Princess Zelda awaits.

Thanks to you, we have been freed from the dark spells that bound us. You must now take the four royal jewels past this ice-bound temple and fly to sacred grounds! Then you can enter the tower leading to the Palace of Winds, where Vaati lurks. Deep within the palace which soars above the Realm of the Heavens, a terrible darkness awaits you all. Yet if you do not dispel that darkness, true peace will never return to Hyrule. The fate of Princess Zelda-- and all of Hyrule--rests in your hands!

You can also use the momentum of being shot from cannons to do the same. Everyone knows that. Except me. That's the first thing I learned when I got here. Didn't help me much, though... Urrrrk... STONE TABLET Urrrk... I thought I'd finally made it to paradise, but...this place is no paradise. If you whack it, it will appear... A mountain of spikes. [Defeat Shadow Link!] PRINCESS ZELDA(TMLN 1) Link! The Shadow Links will regenerate if left alone! I must act... [Zelda illuminates the emblem on the ground] Link! Now! Defeat Shadow Link! PRINCESS ZELDA(TMLN 1) (after Shadow Link is defeated) At last, the Dark Mirror has been retrieved... [The emblem disappears] The Shadow Link, the one who wrought so much havoc upon Hyrule... No longer will his troubling shade darken our world. The one who stole this mirror and brought forth the Shadow Link... He who plunged Hyrule into darkness draws near! ... ... ... The heroes must be given passage to the final battle. A bridge! [A rainbow bridge appears behind Zelda] PRINCESS ZELDA(TMLN 1) (after bridge appears) The time to face the wind sorcerer Vaati is at hand. There will be many traps waiting for you in the Palace of Winds. Reaching the fiend will be no small task. Yet you, Link, are the only one who can save Hyrule. The maidens and I and the fortunate people whom you have rescued... those whom the darkness claimed, the Knights of Hyrule, and many others... We all believe that you, Link, will deliver us from this peril and bring us peace. And I... I will wait for you. Please, do not forget... STAGE 3: Palace of Winds~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(8.3) STONE TABLET You who are guided by shadows may in turn guide shadows... [Final Battle: Vaati] (no dialogue) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Final Confrontation: Ganon~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(8.4) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ PRINCESS ZELDA(TMLN 2) Link! You've defeated the wind sorcerer Vaati. ...! [Pieces of the palace begin falling] This palace was built on the power of Vaati's magical strength. With its master gone, it can no longer retain its form. We can't stay here any longer! We must escape to the Tower of Winds! [Inside palace, rubble is falling; a voice is heard] GANON'S VOICE(TMLN 3) This was all there was to the wind sorcerer Vaati, eh? Before the Four Sword, you were at your wit's end. Useless cur! I did not steal enough power from the Hyruleans. My blood boils, heroes! It seethes at the sight of you! I thirst for destruction! For the pure release of rage, the power of wrath! Four Sword or no, my trident will reduce you to nothingness! I'm waiting, you worms! [A blue shadowy cloud is seen leaving the palace] ~TOWER OF WINDS~ PRINCESS ZELDA What's going on? Why is the Tower of Winds beginning to collapse? Link! We have to get out quickly! [Zelda now guides Link toward the exit, stopping when there are enemies blocking her path, which Link must defeat] PRINCESS ZELDA (later) There are still monsters about. If Vaati did not call them, then...who did? [Hoard of soldiers appear surrounding Links and Zelda; Link defeats them] PRINCESS ZELDA (later) What is this sense of dread that fills the air? PRINCESS ZELDA (later) While we linger here, the tower is crumbling about us! We must hurry! PRINCESS ZELDA (later) The tower's collapsing... I sense a tremendous power approaching! PRINCESS ZELDA (later) The exit's not much farther! [A soldier with a ball and chain appears, which Link must defeat] PRINCESS ZELDA (later) The exit's nearby! Hu-Hurry! [The floor beneath their feet crumbles and collapses; they all fall] [After landing, the same shadowy cloud from the Palace of Winds appears before Zelda and Link] PRINCESS ZELDA(TMLN 1) What?! That raw patch of darkness, deeper than the blackest night... Is... Is that Vaati? No, it's not the wind sorcerer... No matter, I must use my power to seal it away! [Zelda attempts to use an orb of light to seal it away] Can't breathe... My strength is failing me... The very air around me is growing thin...dying... I only need a bit... more power... GANON's VOICE(TMLN 1) MORE!! Enough! The princess of Hyrule and all her power amounts to nothing! Zelda! I, Ganon, now seal you away forever! [Zelda is taken captive; out of the shadowy cloud emerges a pig like beast wielding a trident...Ganon...duh] GANON(TMLN 2) Gwah haa haaaa! Weaklings! Incompetent fools! You so-called heroes do not stand even a gnat's chance of harming me! Even if you worms attack in a group, I will skewer the lot of you on my mighty trident!! [Final Final Battle: Ganon; midway through the battle, Zelda breaks her bonds] PRINCESS ZELDA(TMLN 2) Ganon... This beast was once of the Gerudo... Once human. He was called Ganondorf! King of Darkness, ancient demon reborn. The wielder of the trident!! [Zelda makes another orb of light energy] Yet now... While Ganon's power has waned... I will pour all of my remaining strength into this ball of light! While it is suffused with power, I will release it and strike! At that time, use this! [Link receives a bow] Fire at the ball of light with all your might! If we combine our powers, we may yet be able to seal Ganon away from the world! Link! You must hold back Ganon until my ball of light is ready!! GANON(TMLN 2)(with glowing orange aura) Do you think to stop me? You have not even a fool's chance of facing my power. Once I am finished here, I shall be rid of your Princess Zelda forever! [When you hit Ganon with the ball of light, he is suspended in the ball of light; the six shrine maidens appear and return to human form around him, casting a light spell] PRINCESS ZELDA(TMLN 1) Now! Hold the Four Sword over your head! GANON(TMLN 1) Gyaaaaaaa! What... What have you done? I am the King of Darkness! I cannot be destroyed by insects like you! Noooo!!! [The light grows more intense, then goes into the Four Sword. Ganon disappears with the light] PRINCESS ZELDA(TMLN 3) ... ... Link. We whom you protected, and all of Hyrule as well... We will struggle together and grow stronger than before. We will work as one, as the four of you have done. We will work...together. Now, the Four Sword... Place the sword that sealed away the darkness on the pedestal. ~FOUR SWORD SANCTUARY~ [The shrine maidens and Zelda surround the pedestal. Link comes forth; four swords rise up and merge into one, which is then lowers into the pedestal. The maidens create a triangular prism around the Four Sword, and then turn into fairies and leave. Link and Zelda then exit together] (For a more detailed ending, check the Zelda endings FAQ) THE END _____________________________________________________________________________ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Appendix~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(9.0) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Items~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(9.1) FORCE GEMS FIRST FORCE GEM You found a Force Gem, the Four Sword's power source!

Boss Descriptions~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(9.2) LEVEL 1 Phantom Ganon Phantom Ganon hurls a ball of energy toward you and you must hit it back and forth until it strikes him. Once he is hit, he will fall on one knee and you must hit him with your sword several times to defeat him. This boss has the same appearance as Wind Waker's Phantom Ganon. LEVEL 2 Stone Arrghus This giant eye encrusted with stone opens and closes. It is encompassed by several small stone eyes. Before you can harm the giant stone eye, you must use the boomerang to retrieve small stone eyes, and then kill them with your sword. Once the small stone eyes are all gone, the giant eye chases you on the floor. You must wait until it stops, and then hit it with your sword. LEVEL 3 Dodongos The Dodongos breathe fire. They're exterior is too tough to penetrate. The only way to hurt them is to throw a bomb in their mouths the moment they open. They will swallow the bomb and it will explode inside of them. Same dodongos as in LoZ and OoS/A. LEVEL 4 Big Poe To defeat Big Poe, you must light the torches and anger him. He then sucks you up and you must battle the small creature inside of Big Poe. This appears to be the same Poe as in WW. It also follows the same two stages. LEVEL 5 Phantom Ganon X 4 Phantom Ganon appears and splits into four. The three false Phantom Ganons throw silver balls of energy toward you, while the true Phantom Ganon throws colored balls of energy that correspond to who must hit it back. When the ball of energy hit Phantom Ganon, he becomes one again, and you hit him with the Four Sword. LEVEL 6 Metal Moldorg The key to defeating this giant Molgorg is its tail. The tail changes color every time it's damaged by the Link with the tunic that matches. After a while, the Molgorg splits into two Molgorgs, each following the same colored tail routine. LEVEL 7 Frostare A giant ice covered eye hangs from the ceiling. Several small ice eyes fly around the larger one. After defeating the small ice eyes using Roc's Feather to jump high enough to hit them with your sword, you can focus one the giant ice eye. You are unable to hit the eye with your sword, so you must step on the four switches hidden in one of the rooms to make more ledges appear. You then hop across and climb the ladder. In the top room, a dragon like thing blocks your path. If you strike it with your sword, you will notice that it hurts the giant ice eye. When the root is agitated enough, the ice eye begins to fly around. Hit the eye with your sword and it will fall to the ground. Attack the eye from above to defeat it. LEVEL 8 Vaati Vaati spins in a circle, creating a cyclone beneath him. Using the proper timing, throw bombs into the wind funnel to damage Vaati. Vaati then protects himself with purple orbs, forcing you to utilize a cannon to stab him from above with your sword. This alternates between the upper and lower levels. (TV screen and GBA screen) Note: There is no dramatic climax when Vaati is defeated. Ganon Ganon twirls around his trident, which makes him invisible and impossible to hit. He then shoots rays of energy out of the tip of his trident. Try to hit him with your sword as often as possible. He sends you to the dark world, where you must defeat stafos to return to the light world and continue your battle. After a while, Ganon will warp Link and himself to a different spot in the room. After he stops spinning, he throws his trident around the room, with a blue blaze where it's traveled. After you hurt him enough, he begins to breath hard and Zelda comes down and is released from her bondage. Now Ganon has an orange glow/shadow. He spins his trident and then shoot green (or multi color for multi player) balls of energy out of the tip of his trident. If you hit enough back and hit him, he will collapse, breathing heavily. Zelda will release her ball of light, which will circle around him until you hit it with an arrow and hit him (or until he regains his strength). When you hit him, he is held hostage within the light orb. He is then sealed within the Four Sword. _______________________________________________________________________________ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Notes~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(9.3) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I made some notes during my play-through of the game, keeping Twilight Princess in mind. Perhaps these notes will spur some cogs in intuitive theorists. -Ominous Clouds covered Hyrule -Vaati's main followers are the magicians/mages -Ganon's main followers are the Deku Scrubs, while the Gerudos shun him. -The Knights of Hyrule were defeated by Ganon and his trident. -There's no mention of a war or the Imprisoning War. -The Dark Mirror sealed away a dark tribe, which sounds a lot like the Twilight Mirror -Kakariko Village taken over by thieves, in LttP, the Dark World is taken over by thieves. -Ganon has the same intentions as in LttP/TP ---> Land of Darkness -Green Knight: REMAKE Hyrule into land of darkness? Probably meant "recreate" -Dark Mirror stolen, slab of rock could be TP's slab only moved.. -Temple of Darkness<=>Temple of Light/Time (Lost Woods/Dark World) -Gerudo only exist in OoT, and FSA -Why is Ganondorf accepted by Gerudo in OoT, but not in FSA? -Same pyramid as ALttP? -Zuna's descendants build the Pyramid, and possibly the trident. -Royal jewels look exactly the same as the Four Elements (TMC) -Jewels function is to revel the Tower of Winds, while Elements function is to power the Four Sword, but the Four Sword doesn't change at all when the Royal Jewels are set, nor is there a said relationship between the jewels and the Four Sword. -Vaati has no dialogue whatsoever, while he was quite the babble mouth in FS/TMC, he might be nothing more than a pawn -Vaati sort of "wisps" away once defeated. No explosion or dramatic climax. -Ganon the demon Reborn? No descriptive origins of trident, or the spirit of the trident, could this be the spirit of Ganon sealed within the trident? -Link has a party at the castle in his honor -Last scene of credits shows Zelda entering a room with a Triforce over the doorway, which glows bright as the screen fades. This is the only reference to the Triforce in the game. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ End and Email~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(9.4) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ My email address: firstname.lastname@example.org Anyone may email me to discuss the guide, point out errors, or discuss time line theories.
