After the short story sequence look around on the island you are standing on and find a plaque that talks about shooting into the morning sun. Use the Song of the Sun to make it night, then wait until dawn and shoot an arrow into the rising sun. A fire arrow will drop down onto the island across the water from you. Go get it. Now go to Kakariko Village using whatever method you like and as you walk in, you'll see...we'll I'll let you see for yourself. Sheik will teach you the Nocturne of Shadow here. Use it to warp to the entrance of the Shadow Temple. Go in the cave behind you and you'll see a ton of unlit torches. Stand on the platform in the middle and use Din's Fire to light all the torches simultaneously and open the gate to the Shadow Temple. Shadow Temple: If you haven't already gotten it, go back to the Quest for Truth section and get the Lens of Truth. You need it for this level. Go down the hall and turn the corner, use the hookshot to get across the pit, and you'll see a wall in front of you. Walk through it. Immediately turn left and follow the wall two face tiles down and walk through the wall again (use the Lens in any area to see where the walls can be walked through). Now go through the hall and door and go through another wall to come to a room that seems to have no exit (but we know better right?) As soon as you enter head right and follow the wall until you find an opening (use lens if you want). Go through the door behind it and then play the Song of the Sun to stun the zombie and kill it, then hunt down and kill the two bats. Get the chest that appears for the Dungeon Map. Now go back out and head right following the wall to an opening behind a walk-through wall with a pot on either side of it. Keep going down this tunnel and you'll end up in a room that looks the same as the last one. The opening to go through next is in the corner on the right with a pot beside it. Go through the door there and you'll face Dead Hand, which is the same guy that you killed to get the Lens of Truth in the bottom of the well. After this easy kill, a chest with the Hover Boots will appear. Snatch your prize then go all the way back through to the first big room that had the statue in the middle of it. Use your Lens and look at the skulls on the pillars around the circle, and see which one does NOT disappear with the lens. Now walk up to the tab sticking out of the side of the base of the statue and push the statue until the tab you are pushing is pointing toward the skull that didn't disappear. Don't stop pushing until it gets there or you'll fall in a pit. Now put on your hover boots and walk across the pit to the tongue-looking platform and go in the door and down the ramp. Kill the laser eye in the middle of the next room by throwing two bombs at it, then stand in the middle of the round platform it was on and play the Song of Storms for a Big Fairy (Big Faeries heal both life and magic but can NOT be captured into a bottle. Also note that all you have to do is leave the room and come back in and you can get it again.). Go through the wall on your right, kill the mummies (stun them with Song of Sun if need be) and get the chest containing the compass. Exit back to the eye laser room and go straight through the wall on the other side. You'll end up in a big room with two Deaths swinging giant scythes around the room (it's not enemies, it's just a giant statue). Avoiding the blades, grab all the silver rupees in the room. Note that one is on a platform that has a hookshot target on the wall above it, so use the hookshot to get to it. Now go through the alcove it opened and get the small key. Return to the eye laser room and use a bomb to blast open the remaining wall leading North. Go through the locked door. In this next passage watch for round small shadows on the ground. They are Skulltulas waiting to drop on you. Kill the three Skulltulas and drop down the ledge ahead and you'll be facing some dropping blades. Dodge the first blade, kill the Skulltula, then go past the second and keep following the tunnel. Now you'll be in a huge room. Take off the Hover boots if you're using them, otherwise you might slide into a blade. Jump over the pit, dodge the blade and jump over the next pit, dodge the second blade and jump over the pit, and just before the third blade watch out for a flaming skull to try to get you. Kill it then dodge the final blade. Now on this island you'll have to kill a Stalfos. Once he's dead, play the Song of Storms in the middle of the island for a Big Faerie. Put your Hover Boots on. Facing away from the last falling blade, turn left and use your lens to see an invisible platform. Hover on over it and the next platform, turn right, and hover on over to the door there. Go through and use your lens to see the big spinning scythes thing. Kill the Shield-eater and look on the walls to find 3 bats to kill. Kill them and the door will open. Go through it to kill a gold skulltula, open a chest for some rupees, and open the invisible chest using the lens for some arrows. (Yes, that was just for two stupid treasures and a gold skulltula but I didn't want people complaining that I'd missed some treasures). Now head back out and hover back to where the Stalfos was. You can use the Song of Storms for another Big Faerie now if you want. Wait until the platform in front of you falls and hover forward as far as you can go to land on it (it's farther than it looks). Then wait for it's highest point (you'll have to time it) and hover over to the next big island. Collect all the silver rupees here (there's on inside that eye laser thing so kill it) and go through the door that opens. Follow this passage to a room with falling spikes. Use your lens and look at the right hand wall to see a movable block. Pull it out onto the face tile and then push it in front of you and it will keep the spikes from hitting you. Once it's on the second face tile walk around and start pulling it until it's on the third face tile. The treasure box in the cage to the right has arrows. Climb up on to your block now and hover/hop to the ledge on your left. Now wait until the spiked platform lowers and walk over it to get to the platform on the other side of the room. The treasure box has rupees, but more importantly the yellow switch makes a new treasure box appear on the other side of the room. Hover there using the spike platform as before and get the small key. Leave this room back to the big room. Now look at the left hand corner of the platform you are on (the one furthest corner from you) and you'll see a small rock ramp. Use it to get to a platform with a falling blade. Use your lens to see the ledges behind the blade, then dodge and hover to the platforms and finally to the locked door on the wall. In this room use your lens to see the invisible spikes on the floor. Kill the two zombies and a rupee chest will appear. Now to get all the silver coins here, hookshot to the hookshot targets on the wall. To get the last one, use your lens to see an invisible hookshot target above an invisible platform. Hookshot up and hover walk off the platform to get it. Once you have them all a door will open, go through it. In this room kill all the bats to reopen the blocked door that shut behind you. Climb up the steps and pick a bomb plant then toss it into the hole in the top of the giant skull to blow it up and get the small key it drops. Go back into the last room. Use your lens and look on the ceiling above the raised platform for an invisible hookshot target. Use it to get on the platform and go through the locked door. Now I know this sounds weird but, put on your Iron Boots. This will keep the fans in the tunnel ahead from blowing you away. Make your way through the tunnel until you come to a pit. Watch the fan on the other side of the pit and as soon as it stops blowing, equip the hover boots, walk across, and then reequip the iron boots. Drop down off the ledge and walk across the bridge to the door. You can kill the eye above the door that's shooting fire at you by hitting it with an arrow while the eye is open. In this small room kill the two zombies to reopen the door, play the Song of the Sun (not storms) in the middle of the room for a Big Faerie, open the invisible chest for some arrows, use z-targeting and Navi on the face for a hint, then leave. Use your lens to see a hole in the right wall, then stand even with it. Look at the fan behind you and when it stops, turn around and equip the hover boots. Stand on the side of the bridge closest to the fan. Watch closely and when you start moving from the fan run across to the opening in the wall. The fan helps blow you across. Go through the door. As soon as you walk in this room, look to your right and there's a pile of dirt there. Blow it up with a bomb, then use your Lens to see the invisible chest containing a key. Kill the two mummies for another rupee chest and go through the locked door. Once you're through this door turn left and go to the movable block. Pull it onto the path of green bricks and then pull/push it onto the face tile under the ladder on the opposite side. Climb up onto it and go up the ladder. Hop over onto the ship, stand on the Triforce symbol, and play Zelda's Lullaby. As the ship moves you'll have to fight two Stalfos. When the ship completes it's journey, whether or not you're done with the Stalfos, it will start sinking. Jump off to the left (if you're facing the front of the ship) onto the platform there before it sinks. Go through the door that's on the platform. This next room has 4 doors at North, South, East and West (you came in the East door) and is a small maze of invisible walls. It's inhabited with those hand things like from the Forest Temple. Use your lens to navigate it. The West room contains three giant rotating skull heads that give you some rupees and a gold skulltula. The South room contains an invisible hand monster (use Lens of course) and a chest that appears once it's dead containing a small key. The North room contains two spiked walls that close in on you to kill you. Use Din's Fire to burn down the walls and recover the Boss Key and some rupees. Once you get the Boss Key and small key, return to the room where the ship dropped you off (through the East door). As soon as you're back in this room, look up and to your right to see a high platform. If you have the Scarecrow's Song you can play it to get Pierre to appear up there and then Longshot to him to get across. If not, go to the other end of the platform and look over to a large statue and some bomb plants. Shoot one of the bomb plants with an arrow to blow them up and make the statue fall over the gap creating a bridge. Once you're over go through the locked door. Use the Lens and Hover Boots to walk over the gaps and invisible platforms and go through the Boss Door. Make sure you're still wearing the Hover Boots and fall down the hole in the middle of the room to face... Shadow Temple Boss: Bongo Bongo This boss is easy if you know how to do it. Stand far away from the hands. Z-target one of them and fire off a regular arrow. It will turn blue. Then Z-Target the other and hit it with an arrow. Now as soon as it also turns blue, turn on your Lens and, push B once to take out your sword, then hold down B to start a spin slash charging. Wait until Bongo Bongo's eye is close enough and let the spin go. Start slashing it with the sword until it retreats. Then repeat until he dies. With the Big Goron's sword he should die fairly quickly. Grab the Heart Container and step into the blue light to get out of this tricky dungeon. Gerudo Fortress: After the story sequence get out on the field and summon Epona with Epona's Song. Ride to the West and enter the Gerudo Valley area. If you speed her up enough Epona can jump over the broken bridge in the beginning of this area. If you talk to the man there (he's the boss of the carpenters, the guy you give the Poacher's Saw to in Adult Link's Trading Sequence in section 4), he will explain that his carpenters are in the fortress. Continue on to the fortress right ahead. Let one of the guards see you and you'll be thrown in a cell. Now look up and notice the overhang of your window. Hookshot to it. Then fall down to ground level and go through the door right next to you. Follow the corridor and you'll come to a cell. Talk to the guy in the cell (the first carpenter) and you'll be attacked from behind by a Gerudo guard. I personally just Z-targeted and blocked her first attack and then wailed on her by holding forward and pushing B using Big Goron's sword. Also shooting her with arrows works well. There's probably plenty of good techniques for this fight. You have to watch out though because one of the attacks she has will knock you down and you'll end up back in your cell. Once she's gone she'll drop a key so use it to free the first carpenter. Now continue on past the cell and go outside again. Turn left and go in the door. Turn right in at the corner of this hallway and you'll see the head of a guard poking out over a box. Shoot it with an arrow. Walk to where she was and turn to look down the next hall. From there shoot down the two guards in the next room. Go in the room (there's a Big Faerie that can be summoned using Song of Storm near the stove) and go up the ramp on the far side to an exit. When you are outside again turn right and drop down and go through the door that's there. Now just stand in the doorway with an arrow cocked and in a few seconds a guard will walk by, so shoot her. Now go right, left, right and you'll be at the second carpenter's cell. Talk to him, fight another guard, and free him. Go back out where you came in and drop down one level. Turn left, climb up some vines, and go through the door that's straight ahead of you (NOT the one to the left). This is the third carpenter's room. Same process. Once he's rescued, go back out the door you came in. Shoot the three guards that are wandering around outside and drop down to ground level. Turn left and go into the door furthest left, the one right before the Gerudo in white clothes (Don't worry about her, she's not a guard she just lets you into the Training Center later.) Follow this hall down to the fourth and final carpenter and go through the same process to free him. Now that he's free a Gerudo will talk to you and since you are so skilled, you will get a membership card that lets you wander around the fortress all you want and participate in the activities it has to offer. Also, the bridge will now be fixed. Explore the fortress and try the various games and what not. Don't bother with the Training Ground because you can't get through it without the Silver Gauntlet. Desert Colossus: Once you're done having fun in Gerudo Fortress, head for the big gate. Climb up the ladder next to it and talk to the girl there to get it opened. Walk out into the desert. In front of you will be a river of sand. Put on your hover boots to cross it. Then, follow the flags. This is much easier to do during the day, so if it's night use the Song of the Sun to make it day. After the first flag or two you'll notice a little sign. If you follow the direction the sign is pointing you'll end up on a flying carpet talking to a weird guy that sells Bombchu's for 200 rupees (rip off!). Keep following the flags until you get to a stone structure. Walk up the side of it and read the plaque up there. Then activate your Lens of Truth to see a ghost. Follow him closely as he wanders seemingly aimlessly around the desert. You might have to fight off a couple of desert critters. Eventually you'll end up at the Desert Colossus. Turn right first off and look for two pine trees next to a wall with a crack on it. Blow open the crack to find the 5th Great Faerie and get Nayru's Love. Also on the other side of this area is a sand pit with some palm trees around it and a small rock nearby. Make it night with the Song of the Sun and kill the gold skulltula on one of the palm trees first, then stand on the rock and play the Song of Storms to fill the sand pit with water and it will become a faerie pond. Fill your bottles with the faeries if you need to. Now walk in the front door of the Spirit Temple. Immediately walk back out. Sheik will appear and teach you the Requiem of Spirit. Play the Prelude of Light to warp to the Temple of Time, replace the Master Sword to turn into young Link, then play the new Requiem of Spirit to warp back to the Desert Colossus. Enter the Spirit Temple. Spirit Temple Part 1, Young Link: Go up the stairs and turn left. Talk to the person there. When asked what you want, say Nothing, Really, and when asked if you like Gannondorf say no, and then you'll be asked to go get a treasure. Crawl through the hole, kill the bats and statue guy, and then light a Deku stick with one of the torches. Go through the right hand door and light the torches in there. Then go back and go through the other door. You'll have to fight a Stalfos here (boy they're much tougher and scarier when young Link aren't they?) and also a flaming green skull (stun it with your boomerang and then hit it with your slingshot). Now throw your boomerang to the left of the shock switch across the pit from you. If you aim right it will swing around behind the fence and hit it. Then the fence will fall down forming a bridge. Cross the bridge, watch out for the flying pots, and go through the next door (the chest is 5 rupees or a Deku Shield if you lost yours). In this room walk along the bridge until you're just before the spike thing and then use Din's Fire to fry the guy. Just so you know, these guys copy all your movements, except in reverse. Technically you can lure it into a pillar of fire that appears when you hit the shock switch nearby, but it's easier to just fry them. There's nothing on the other side of the bridge, so just go through the next door. Open the treasure chest here for a key and collect all the silver rupees to make a bridge. Now go back into the first room again and this time climb through the small hole (not the one you came in through, the one between the two torches). Go through the locked door. Kill the skulltulas and climb up the wall. Now you're on floor 2. Go in the room a ways and you'll have to fight two of those lizard guard guys. Use your boomerang to hit the shock switch above you and open the chests that appear. One has Bombchu's in it, the other a Deku Shield or 5 rupees. Aim a Bombchu so it climbs up the wall and hits the boulder up there. This will open the doorway. Go through and look to your left. Push the stone statue you see straight off the ledge onto a switch. Climb the steps in front of you to get to a torch and a door. Light a Deku stick with the torch, drop down, and light the two torches in front of the big statue to get the Map. Go back to the small statue, climb the wall, and go up the steps again, this time going through the door. Go around to the next door, and you're now in another silver rupee-collecting room. You'll have to kill the laser eye guys with bombs or bombchu's to get up to most of them. After getting them all a torch will light. Use it to light the other torches to get a chest with a key. Now move those blocks in the middle of the room around until the one with the sun symbol on it is in the sunlight coming in from the window. Go through the door that opened, up the stairs, and into the next room. Go up to that big metal thing sitting in the throne and hit it with your sword. Now you'll be up against an Iron Knuckle. This guy isn't all that tough. If you get hit though, you're in for some serious pain. Just Z-target and go to right outside his attack range. Then Jump attack (push A) and you'll get off a good hit and the swing he takes at you will miss. Back off and then do it again. If he hits a pillar it will give up 3 hearts. You can also try getting in behind him when he misses a swing if you're good. After a bunch of hits he'll be dead. Go through the door that opens and up a ramp and you'll end up...outside. Open the chest there to get the Silver Gauntlets. Watch the story sequence then play the Prelude of Light to go to the Temple of Time. Get the Mater Sword to become adult Link. Now you have a choice between continuing the Spirit Temple or using your new Silver Gauntlets to go get the Ice Arrows in the Gerudo Training Ground. If you want to continue the Spirit Temple skip down to Spirit Temple part 2, adult Link below. Gerudo Training Ground Go to Gerudo Fortress and talk to the lady in white clothing outside a blocked door. Pay her 10 rupees to get into the training grounds. Once you're inside, turn right and go inside the lion's mouth. Quickly kill all the enemies in this room to get a key. Go through the door that became unblocked. Equip your hover boots. This part may take some practice and you have to be quick. I've been told that if you play the Song of Time two blue blocks will appear that will make it a little easier to navigate. Hover over to the platform to your left. Then on to the one with the switch. Step on the switch, hover back over to the previous platform, continue on to the one in front of you (that still has a silver rupee on it), then turn left and hover to the middle platform, then continue in that direction to the platform with the silver rupee. Immediately turn around and hover back to the middle one, then on to the next one with the silver rupee. Use your hookshot on the target above the high door to reach the last rupee and open the blocked door. Hover over to it and go through. Take off your hover boots now. Stand on the red tile and play the Song of Time, then put on Iron Boots and drop down. Once at the bottom, kill the clams with your hookshot and start collecting silver rupees. For some of them, you'll have to stand under it and then hookshot to one of the hookshot targets on the wall. You'll have to aim right so that you'll hit the rupee on the way up. Try standing almost right under the rupee. You can also try taking off your boots and swimming to it but you'll be swept around by the current. The highest one is too high to use the hookshot targets so you'll just have to swim around the ceiling to get it. Be careful to avoid the middle of the ceiling or you'll be swept up and have to put the Iron Boots back on in order to get back down. Once you've gotten them all, float up to the surface and get the small key that's now there. Go back through the door. Back in the lava room, use the hookshot on the torch by the high door to get up there. Go through this door. If you kill the enemies in this room you'll get some arrows. Take out your hammer and start smashing all the statues around the walls. One of them has a switch under it. Step on it to remove the fire pillar and get the small key. Another has a gold eye on the wall behind it. Shoot the eye to unblock another door. Go through this new door. In this room you have to stand on the side and shoot the eyes of the 4 statues. You have to do it in one pass, if you miss one you'll have to do them all again. Once you do the room will stop rotating and a chest will appear. Shoot the chest with your hookshot to get over to it. Another key. Now use your hookshot on the target on the wall to get back up. Go back and make your way back to the first room. If you're low on health or magic, go stand in between the two pillars where Navi turns green and play the Song of Storms for a Big Faerie. Now go through the lion head on the opposite side of the room. In the first room kill the two Stalfos, get the fifth key, then go through the next door. In this room, take the first left, then go left again and grab the rupee. Turn around, go up the hill (you'll probably be smacked by a boulder on the way up) to the very top for another one. Now go back down and a ways and take a left. Turn right and you'll see a rupee floating in front of you. Jump off the ledge to get it. Walk forward a bit, look up and hookshot to the target above you for another rupee. Turn around, take a right, take another right, and another right for the last rupee. Turn around, go up the hill, take the left, then turn right and use the hookshot target on the ceiling to get over the flame. Go through the door. In this room if you kill all the wolves you'll get some arrows. The door is fake, you can blow it up with a bomb or hammer. Use your Lens of Truth and look above the door to see a secret hole in the wall and a hookshot target. Hookshot up there, step on the switch, and go through the door. Follow the path around to another door and a small key. Now go back to the room with the fake door and there's also a big gray block there. With your new Silver Gauntlets from the Spirit Temple push the block forward until it falls down, then go through the door. Kill the Shield- eater's here and you'll get some chests with rupees in them (one has 200 rupees). If you open the chest on the pedestal you'll get frozen. Mash buttons to break out of the ice. Use your Lens and find the invisible chest in one of the little holes that the Shield-eater's were in. Open it for the 7th key. Now go all the way back to the first room again, and go through the Lion's mouth that's straight across from the entrance. Take the right hand door and the next door after that. Go down the corridor on your right to get another key. Go back and this time go through the other locked door and in this room, use your Lens and look at the ceiling to find a secret hole. Climb up it via the fence and get a key up there. Now just keep going through unlocking all the doors on that path and you'll get the Ice Arrows. Spirit Temple Part 2, Adult Link: Play the Requiem of Spirit to warp to the entrance of the Shadow Temple and go on in. Go up the stairs and to the right is a big gray block. Push it until it falls down and go into the next room. Kill the eye laser thing and shoot the shock switch in the ceiling with an arrow. Go through the door on the left. Kill the wolves and play Zelda's Lullaby on the Triforce symbol to make a chest appear. Hookshot to the chest to get a Compass. Go back and now go through the door on the right. Collect all the silver rupees in this next room. Use you Hover Boots to get the one floating in the air. Go through the door that opens. Watch out for the Shield-eater and get a small key from the box. Go back to the room with the shock switch on the ceiling and go through the locked door. Watch out for flying pots and a Shield-eater that falls from the ceiling in this hallway. Climb the wall and use your Lens to see an invisible hand monster. Kill it, then use one of the wood poles sticking out of the statue to push it around to the third sun symbol from the left, opening the doorway. Go through it and you're back in that giant statue room. This time the small statue next to you is alive so watch it. Now climb up the stairs and use your hookshot on the small treasure chest across the way from you. Use your hammer on the switch to open the door on the ground level. Go through this door, push the blocks out of your way, and hammer down the switch at the end to make a moving block for easy access between this room and the entrance room. Go back to the big statue room and use your hookshot on the hookshot target above the door you came in from originally (as adult Link) to get access to the stairs again. Climb up the stairs and jump onto the statue's hand with the Triforce symbol on it. Play Zelda's Lullaby to make a chest appear in the statue's other hand. If you've got good aim you can hookshot to it, or just drop down and climb the other stairs to jump over to it. Inside is a key. Climb up the stairs where you came in and go through the locked door. Kill the eye laser thing with a bombchu, then go through the next door and kill that eye laser thing with a bombchu (it will go down the wall, across the floor, and up the other wall to get it). Kill the weird floating guys with fire arrows or try luring them into the fire that appears when you step on the switch. Go through the door that opens. Ignore the statues and go stand next to the closed door to your right. Equip normal arrows and fire one at the statue furthest from you. As it moves toward you it will step on the blue switch which opens the door, so quickly go through it. Go up the stairs (there's invisible chests in here with hearts in them) and through the door. You'll have to fight another Iron Knuckle. This time is a little different since you're now older Link. If you use the Big Goron's Sword you can stab by pushing forward+A and then quickly retreat to get in hits before he hits you. Using this sword will kill him in a lot less hits then it took young Link to kill him with. If you don't have the Big Goron's Sword wait until after he's done swinging his axe and then hit him. Once he's dead go through the door to end up outside, and this time the chest holds the Mirror Shield. Go back inside and down the stairs to the room with the four statues. Stand in the sunlight and use your Mirror Shield to reflect the light on to the sun symbol on the wall. Go through the door that opened and get the key from the chest. Go back out of this room and then take the door to your right back to the room where those weird floating guys were. Go through the locked door here. Kill the two eye laser things with Z-targeting and a couple of Bombchu's (BTW your new Mirror Shield can now block their lasers!). Shoot down the skulltula halfway up the wall. Now aim your hookshot at the climbable section of wall at the very top and fire it. You'll be pulled up to the top climbable section rather than having to navigate this moving wall. At the top you have two more eye laser things to kill then go through the door. Play Zelda's Lullaby on the Triforce symbol to open the door in front of you, then go through it. All the doors in this room are fake. Blow up the one just to the left of the chest to reveal a gold eye. Shoot it and another block of ice will appear above you. There's a hookshot target on the ceiling above it to use that to get up onto the new ice block, then jump over and step on the switch. Drop down and get the Boss Key, then exit the room. Turn right and go through the door. Watch out for flying pots, and hit the switch behind the grating with a spin slash. Go through the door that opens and kill all the baddies in this room. You can use the Mirror Shield to reflect the light onto a sun symbol above the archway between the two sections of this room to get some bombs. Blow open the wall to the statue's right then push it around so the light shines down the new passageway. Go down there and push the second statue so the light shines back into the previous room through the grating. Now go back into that room, drop down to the floor and stand in the light. Reflect it onto the sun symbol on the wall with your Mirror Shield and you will be taken down to the big statue room again. Stand on the side of the platform furthest from the statue (but make sure you're still standing in the light), hold your Z trigger for a second to get the camera focused on the statue's face, then let go and use your Mirror Shield to reflect the light on to the statue's face. The face will crumble off and a grate will be behind it. Hookshot to the grate and go through the Boss door behind it. Watch the short story sequence and you'll have to fight a third Iron Knuckle. This one is bigger though. First Z-target him and get fairly close. Then wait for him to start to swing his axe. Immediately push Back+A to do a backflip, then push A again as soon as you land to do a Jump Slash and nail him when his defense is down. Then just wait for him to come close and start another swing and do it again. Once he's gone, watch another story sequence then go through the door behind the throne. Go down the hall, through the door, and climb up onto the big square platform. Step in the middle of the platform to initiate the battle with... Spirit Temple Boss: Twinrova First, jump onto one of the 4 side platforms and face toward the big platform in the middle. Keep facing toward the general direction of the witches. Do NOT Z-target. When one of them looks like she's about to fire, face her and hold down your shield button. Her beam will reflect off of the shield. Try to direct it at the other witch by moving the shield. If they fly over and start hovering above your platform, jump to the middle platform and reflect the attack, then jump back onto your platform. After you've gotten them to hit each other enough times, they'll combine into a more powerful (but much less ugly) Twinrova. Jump back to the main platform. Z-target her and hold down your shield button. Your shield will absorb her attacks! After three of the same type (fire or ice) it will fire back at her. She'll fall down to a platform. Let off your Z targeting, get over to her platform (Hover Boots may be useful here) and let her have it with the sword. Then get back to the main platform and repeat the process. NOTE: If she fires an attack of the opposite kind of what your shield is absorbing (an ice attack when you previously absorbed a fire attack) just dodge, don't try to absorb it, otherwise you'll get hurt enough to lose 10 hearts!! Watch the somewhat funny death scene, grab the heart container, and step into the blue light. Final Preparations: After the story sequence you're back at the Desert Colossus. Use the Prelude of Light to go to the Temple of Time. Another, very informative story sequence follows in which you get the Light Arrows. Now, go around Hyrule and finish up all your unfinished business. Get all the remaining heart container pieces, complete the trading sequences, kill gold skulltulas you've missed, catch all the 10 Big Poes, catch a huge fish, and try all the cool tricks in the Tips, Tricks, and Secrets section below. Get everything you can out of this awesome game, because the next step is the final level, Gannon's Castle. When you're ready, make sure you have at least 1 blue potion (found in the weird potion shop behind the regular potion shop in Kakariko Village) and some faeries and head to Gannon's Castle. Walk up the steps and a bridge will be formed for you. Head into the castle Gannon's Castle: Walk down the hall, past the two eye laser things (just run past them) and through the door. Now turn right and follow the outside wall until you find the door with the purple Shadow Temple emblem above it (look on your Quest Status subscreen if you need to compare). Go through that door, look to your left for a platform with a small chest on it. Hookshot to it. Put on your Hover Boots. Now aim across the way at a small platform with a torch on it, and use a Fire Arrow to light the torch. Quickly run across the blocks that appear, past the shield-eater and on to the next platform after it. You won't have time to make it to the next block so don't try. Instead, use your Lens to see an invisible walkway. Take the right-hand walk way and jump down to the platform with the switch on it. Step on the switch to make a big treasure box appear. Use your hookshot on the treasure box to get up to it and you'll get the Gold Gauntlets. Now take the left invisible path to a switch. Hit it with your hammer, then go back and take the right path again to the door. Go through it and shoot the floating ball thing with a Light arrow. You'll be transported back to the main room. Go back to the main door you came in through and leave the castle. When you are outside go across the bridge and loop around to your left. You'll run under a stone arch and go down a passageway to a huge stone pillar. Pick it up using your A button and go through the cave behind it. Use Zelda's Lullaby to summon the faerie and get double defense. Now head back into the castle and into the main room. Now that you have the Golden Gauntlets it doesn't matter what order you get rid of the barriers. So just head right and go through the first door, the one with the green emblem (Forest Barrier). Kill the wolf, then use Din's Fire to light all the torches. Look above the doorway and there's another torch, so light it with a Fire Arrow and go through the door. Make sure you have your Hover Boots equipped in this next room. First, wait until the fan to your left is going and then walk toward it to get the silver rupee, then turn right and the fan will help blow you across to the next platform. Hover over to the next small platform with the switch on it and step on it. Turn around and use your hookshot to get up onto the platform and get the silver rupee you couldn't reach before. Turn toward the middle of the room and Z-target and toss a bomb at the eye laser thing. Hover over to it's platform then across to another silver rupee. Hover back to the eye laser thing's platform and forward to the one under the door. Now wait until the fan to the right of the door stops blowing then hover across to the last silver rupee. Go through the door and shoot the floating ball with a Light arrow to be warped back to the main room. Head right again and go through the next door, the Water Barrier. Empty one of your bottles (NOT a blue potion) and use it to get some magic blue flame from the center of the room. Walk around the room to find the two ice statues and kill them to unblock the door. Melt the ice blocking the door with the blue flame, then refill the bottle with more blue flame. Go through the door. In this room, push the ice block furthest from you right, then back (toward the door you came in through) so that it falls down the hole. Then push the other block right, forward, and finally left so that it ends up in the nook in the wall. Climb up it and use the blue fire to melt the ice. Smash the switch with the hammer then go through the next door. Kill the floating ball thing with a Light arrow and you're back in the main room again. Continue to the right, past the Shadow Barrier door since you already beat it, and on to the Fire Barrier door. Equip your Hover Boots and Goron's Tunic. Collect all the silver coins in the room. Watch out because most of the platforms sink in the lava while you're standing on them so keep moving. There's one on the platform with the rotating fire-breathing statue and one just to the right on a block. Further down on the left there's a big pillar. Lift it with your Golden Gauntlets to reveal another one. Then the last two are on the far right side of the room. After you've grabbed the last one get close enough to the door so that you can hookshot to the hookshot target next to it. Go through and kill the floating ball thing with a Light arrow and warp back to the main room. Once again heading right, move the pillar out of the way of the door to the Light Barrier. In the first room, use the Lens or just Z-targeting to kill the 4 bats and big skulltula in the room. Get the key in the chest that appears and go through the locked door. Use Zelda's Lullaby in the next room for another key and go through the locked door. Now you're in another collect silver rupees room. There's 2 in nooks on the outer wall, two in the structure in the middle, and one on the ceiling you can get with the hookshot. Go through the door and...the ball thing is missing! But not really. Go straight through the wall in front of you and you'll be in the real room with the ball thing. Destroy it and warp back. On to the final door, the Spirit Barrier. In the first room, once again collect silver rupees. Blow up the eye laser thing with two bombs or bombchu's. Just roll attack (forward+A) through the spikes to get most of them. Don't forget the one floating in the middle of the room - hookshot to the ceiling to get it. Go through the door and kill the torch slugs. Use a spin slash to trigger the first shock switch, which makes a chest drop containing Bombchu's. Use a bombchu on the fence to have it climb up the fence, go through the hole up there, then climb down the other side to finally blow up the second shock switch (good use for a bomchu eh?). Go through the door now and through an entryway to a room with some sun symbols on the wall. Shoot the hole in the ceiling with a Fire Arrow to let in the sunlight. Use your Mirror Shield to reflect it onto the symbol just to the right of the entryway (NOT the doorway!) to unblock the door. Go on to the final floating ball thing. Kill it with a Light Arrow. Now leave Gannon's Castle to stock up. Use the Great Faerie's fountain to heal your life and magic. Make sure you have at least 1 blue or green potion because you may need it to refill magic during the final battle. Fill the rest with faeries. Also be sure you have a full quiver of at least 40 arrows. Now go back into Gannon's Castle and go into the tower in the middle of the room. Go up the stairs and through the door. Now you'll just have to keep killing all the enemies in the room to unblock the next door, then go through and up more stairs. About halfway up you'll find the Boss Key in a chest surrounded by fire that you need to kill all the enemies in the room to get to. Evantually you'll also have to fight two Iron Knuckles at the same time. Don't worry though they're slow enough you can just work on one at a time. Remember to wait until they get close enough to swing, then backflip with back+A, then push A again when you land for a jump slash. Once you've climbed enough stairs you'll end up in a huge room with a giant pillar in the middle of it and pots everywhere. Don't break any pots, you'll need them later. Find the other door and go through it and up a huge flight of stairs. You'll pop in on a small story sequence when you go through the door the top. Afterwords you'll face the big guy himself, the Evil King.... The Final Boss: Gannondorf Immediately put on your Hover Boots and run to one of the corners of the room. Now face Gannondorf, tap Z to center the camera, and wait until he throws a ball of lightning at you. Remember Phantom Gannon? Hit the ball to reflect it back at him and be ready for when he knocks it back at you. Keep hitting it until it hits him. He'll be stunned for a second, so take this opportunity to shoot him with a Light Arrow. Turn run over to his platform, Z-target, and wail on him with your sword. When he gets back up quickly run back to your corner. If you fall off, break the pots to get some life/magic/etc. and then use the Longshot on the side of the middle pillar to quickly get back up. Then as soon as you climb over the top, turn to face the nearest corner, tap Z to center the camera, and run over to it before he knocks you back off again. After a while he'll try a more powerful attack. When you see him start gathering a big dark ball of energy above his head, hold down B to start charging a spin attack. When he lets it go it will fire 4 lighting balls at you. Release the spin attack to reflect all 4 back at him. Then he'll be stunned like a regular one and you can use the Light Arrow and sword on him. Eventually you'll defeat him. I'm not going to give away the rest of the game after this, but if you get stuck, here are some hints: 1) Take off those Hover Boots! 2) Follow instructions, and be quick about it 3) If you're looking for a weak spot, try the tail 3) What Light Arrows can't kill, they can stun 4) If you didn't get the Big Goron's sword, you may need the Megaton Hammer. Enjoy the ending of this awesome game!
