Story

At the end of a fierce fight, Link overthrew Ganon, took back the Triforce and rescued Princess Zelda. However, is it all really finished? Many seasons have passed since then. Hyrule was on the road to ruin. The power that the vile heart of Ganon had left behind was causing chaos and disorder in Hyrule. What's more, even after the fall of Ganon, some of his underlings remained, waiting for Ganon's return. The key to Ganon's return was the blood of Link - the valiant lad that overthrew the King of Evil. Ganon would be revived by sacrificing Link and sprinkling his blood on the ashes of Ganon. Meanwhile, Link remained in the little kingdom of Hyrule and lent his hand to its restoration. But circumstances did not look very good. One day a strange mark, exactly like the crest of the kingdom, appeared on the back of Link's hand as he approached his 16th birthday. The worried Link went to Impa, Princess Zelda's nursemaid who was shocked and frightened when she saw the birthmark. When she regained her composure, she took Link to the North Castle. There was a door in the North Castle called "the door that does not open. "Only the descendants of the Impa family who served the king knew how to open the door. Impa took Link's left hand and pressed the back of it against the door. There was a sound of a lock falling open, the door slowly creaked open and there on an altar in the middle of the room lay a beautiful woman. "Here lies the Princess Zelda." Impa began to speak calmly. "Link, the time has come when I must tell you the legend of Zelda handed down in Hyrule. It is said that long ago, when Hyrule was one country, a great ruler maintained the peace in Hyrule using the Triforce. However, the king too was a child of man and he died. Then, the prince of the kingdom should have become king and inherited everything, but he could inherit the Triforce only in part. The Prince searched everywhere for the missing parts, but could not find them. Then, a magician close to the king brought him some unexpected news. Before he died, the king had said something about the Triforce to only the younger sister of the prince, Princess Zelda. The prince immediately questioned the princess, but she wouldn't tell him anything. After the prince, the magician threatened to put the princess into an eternal sleep if she did not talk, but even still, she said nothing." "In his anger, the magician tried to cast a spell on the princess. The surprised prince tried to stop him, but the magician fought off the prince and went on chanting the spell. Then, when the spell was finally cast, Princess Zelda fell on that spot and entered a sleep from which she might never awake. At the same time, the magician also fell down and breathed his last." "In his grief, the prince placed the princess in this room. He hoped that someday she would come back to life. So that this tragedy would never be forgotten, he ordered every female child born into the royal household should be given the name Zelda." From the stand next to the altar where Princess Zelda lay in a deep sleep, Impa took the six crystals and a scroll with the same crest and handed them to Link. "For generations, my family has been handed down these things which have been set aside for a time when a great king will come. They are written in ancient script that no one can read now. But you who have the crest may be able to read it. It is said that the key to uniting the Triforce is hidden there. Now it is time for you to read it." Link glanced at the scroll half in doubt, but what do you know? Although he never seen the letters before, he found that he could read them as if they were talking to him. This was written on the Scroll. "You who'll control the Triforce of the future. I shall hand down to you the secrets of the Triforce. There are three kinds of Triforce - Power, Wisdom, and Courage. When these three are brought together, the Triforce will share its maximum power. Of the three, I have left Power and Wisdom in the kingdom. But the Triforce of Courage I have hidden for a reason. Not everybody can use the Triforce. It requires a strong character with no evil thoughts. But an inborn special quality is also necessary. Unfortunately, I have not found such a person during my lifetime." "Therefore, I have decided to cast a spell on all of Hyrule. A crest will appear on a young man with that character, who has been brought up correctly, has gained many kinds of experiences and reached a certain age. But, what will happen if someone else uses the Triforce before then? If it is misused, it will produce many evils." "The Triforce of Courage is hidden in the Great Palace in the Valley of Death on the largest island in Hyrule. However, to enter you must first fight the guardians and undo the 'binding force.' When you have defeated the guardians, which I made to prevent enemies from invading the six palaces in Hyrule, set a crystal in the forehead of the statue you find. When you have set crystals in all of the statues in the six palaces, the 'binding force' placed on the Valley of Death will be removed and you will be able to enter the great palace. There you must fight the last guardian. And you can obtain the Triforce only by defeating that guardian. There's nothing to fear. You are the one to get the Triforce. You are the beacon of hope for Hyrule." Impa implored Link, who raised his head slowly after reading the scroll. "The magic spell cast upon the Princess Zelda will sure to be broken if the Triforce is used. Please, Link. Unite the Triforce and save the princess. And bring back peace to Hyrule." Link nodded silently in approval, and left the room after taking a long glance at the altar. Then with a magical sword in his left hand and a magical shield in his right, he set off alone on his long travels. At that time, Ganon's underlings were calling up new allies from the Underworld, and were beginning to work devilishly towards the revival of Ganon.


WALKTHROUGH

*** North Castle ***

You start the game in front of the altar where Zelda is sleeping inside of the North Castle. There isn't anything really important to do here, so just head left or right out of the castle into the overworld. From here, just head east along the path towards Rauru. Be sure to walk off the path into the grassy plains or the forest to fight some enemies and gain some experience. After you gain a Life Level, head into Rauru, which is almost directly east of the North Castle.

It can't be hurt without the Fire spell's help, so this is the only way you can beat it (as well as several other enemies in the game). Then, continue right out of the cave. Go north, then head east all the way to the water. You'll see a bridge there, so walk on it to be brought to the Island Maze. Then, go right a couple steps, then go down and all the way to the right. Next, go straight up, then go left and up a couple steps. Finally, go right and you'll fall into a hidden cave. Go right and defeat the orange Lizardman, then continue right and take the Child sitting there in the corner. Now, go back left and up the steps, then out of the cave. Back in the maze, go left and down, then right and straight down to the corner. Next, go left all the way to the end, then go up and left across the bridge. Now that you're back on the mainland, head all the way west. You should eventually come across a desert area. When you get there, go down and around the mountain barrier, then go up and you'll enter a side-scrolling scene. There, go left and jump up the small ledges while defeating the blue Octoroks along the way. Keep going left to the end, then when you're in the overworld view again, go left and up into another side-view area. Here, go left while defeating the blue Octoroks and avoiding the bubbles that float upward from the bottom of the screen as well. After you're out of that area, go up and left into the town of Darunia.

*** Darunia ***

When you enter Darunia, go left until you reach the tall lady dressed in red standing outside her house, and then go inside with her to recover your health. Then, go left some more and talk to the old lady dressed in orange and go inside her house to recover your magic. Next, continue left to the next scene. There, cast the Jump spell, and then jump on the roof of the 4th house you see. Jump from roof to roof all the way to the right, then stand on the chimney on the last house and press Down to go down it and enter the otherwise locked house! Inside, go right and down the steps into the basement, then go right and talk to the Knight to learn the Up Thrust sword technique! Now, go left and up the steps, then continue left out of the house. Now, continue left to the next scene of town. Go left and talk to the lady that comes out of the first house in that scene and she'll let you inside because you rescued the child. Inside the house, go right and down into the basement, then go up to the old sage to learn the Reflect spell! Then, go back left and up the stairs out of the basement, and go left out of the house. Now, go all the way left until you're out of town.

Back in the overworld, go right and down through the 2 side- scrolling scenes like you went through on the way to Darunia. Then, head all the way east to the water. Cross the bridge there to reach the Island Maze again. There, go right and down, then go right a few steps and go up the path there. Go up, and then right into a side-scrolling area. There, go right and use the Fire spell to defeat the enemies there. When you exit the scene, go right and up across a bridge, then go left into another side-scrolling scene. Go left, and once again, use the Fire spell and your sword to defeat the enemies in this area. Continue left out of the scene, then go left one step and head up and right along the path. Go up, then left and up, and then to the right and you'll enter yet another side-scrolling battle scene! There, go right and up the ledges and defeat the Bot in the beginning. Then, continue right and cast the Fire spell and use it to defeat the enemies in the area, then keep going right to the end of the scene. Then, go right some more and then go up and left. Next, go up some more, and then go left. Next, go down and left, then go straight up to the upper corner. Then, go right, and then go down at the end. Go right a few steps, then go down the path, then go right and down a bit more. Finally, go right and into Palace 4!

*** Palace 4 ***

From the beginning, go right while avoiding the Moa's fireballs above you, then go down the elevator to the floor below. On that floor, simply go right into the following room. There, go right and defeat the blue Stalfos, then use the Down-Stab sword technique to claim the P-Bag worth 100 experience points. Continue right through this room and defeat the next blue Stalfos, then take the elevator at the end of the room down one floor. Once there, get off the elevator and go right, then defeat the red Stalfos. Now, jump up the 2 ledges, and then continue right to the next room. In this room, go right and cast the Jump spell on yourself, then run across the bridge that disintegrates as you step on it. When you reach the end, hold Right and jump to the ledge on the other side of the pit below. Keep on going right and defeat a Mini-Horsehead, then a Stone Warrior. After you beat the Stone Warrior, continue right into the following room. In this room, go right and jump onto the platform in the air, then go right and destroy the blocks with your sword. Next, jump over the small flame and continue right, then jump onto the next platform. Destroy the blocks, and then jump over the flame on this platform, but this time, watch out for the Stone Warrior on this platform! Defeat it if it doesn't fall into the lava first, and then jump over the lava pit and land on the next platform. On this platform, destroy the blocks and hop over the small flames, then jump onto the ledge at the end and take the Key. Now, go all the way left through this room to the room that you just came from. Continue going left until you reach the large pit. Walk off the edge and hold the Right button. When you fall to the floor below, hold Right to land on the platform. Now, go right and defeat another Mini- Horsehead while avoiding the annoying Skull Ball. Continue right and defeat the Stone Warrior, and then go right to the next room. In this room, go right and defeat the red and blue Stalfos, then keep going right and you'll meet a blue Ironknuckle coming towards you! Defeat it and unlock the door with your Key, then go into the now open area and take the Boot! Now, go back left through this room all the way back to the one with the large pit. Jump into the pit again and you'll land on a disintegrating bridge below. Quickly run to the right to avoid falling into the lava, then continue right to the next room. Here, jump onto the platform suspended above the lava and destroy the blocks with your sword, then jump over the small flame and defeat the Stone Warrior waiting there at the end of the platform. Next, jump to the next platform and destroy the blocks on it, then jump over the flame. Defeat the red Stalfos there, and then jump onto the following platform to the right. Destroy the 2 blocks and jump over the flame, then jump over the pit and claim the Key sitting there while trying to avoid the Skull Ball. Now, jump back across those platforms and go back to the room you came from. In that room, jump onto the bridge that disintegrates when you walk on it, then run left across it while trying your best to avoid those annoying blue head things that float around in a zigzag pattern towards you. Keep running across the bridge, and then go into the next room at the end. Here, go left and defeat a Bot, then cast the Reflect spell; you'll need it to defeat the Doomknockers, or wizards in this room. Go left and beat a wizard, then continue left and unlock the door with a Key. Next, continue left and pass the elevator for now, then defeat a couple more Bots and Doomknockers and continue left into the next room. In this room, jump up the block "steps" and go left on top. Keep going left while either avoiding or defeating the Skull Heads, then continue until you spot the Key in a small area below you. Use the Down Thrust sword technique to break through the blocks and take the Key. Then drop off the block structure and go into the next room. Go right until you reach the elevator, then ride it up to the top floor. Get off there and go left and defeat some Doomknockers using the Reflect spell to harm them. Continue left past the elevator and defeat some more Bots and Doomknockers, then unlock the door with your Key and continue into the next room. When you enter this room, you'll see a Key is located right above you. To get to it, first cast the Jump spell, then use the Up-Stab technique to cut through the blocks. Then, jump through the hole you made and take the Key while avoiding getting hit by the Skull Ball. Now, drop back down that hole and head left only to reach yet another locked door. Unlock it with the Key you just got, then continue left past the second elevator. Go left and defeat a couple of Mini-Horseheads and a Stone Warrior; after you beat them, just go on ahead to the following room. In this room, jump onto the block structure with help from the Jump spell, then go left along the top of it. Defeat a Stone Warrior, then cut downward through the blocks with your sword to claim the P-Bag worth 200 experience points! Now, use my diagram that I made above to get out of that little "room" and continue left. You'll see a Key in a little block "prison", so cut through the blocks to get it. Make the steps with your sword, then go left and drop off the block structure and defeat the Stone Warrior there. After you beat it, jump back onto the block structure and go all the way to the right into the following room. In this room, defeat a couple of Mini-Horseheads as you move right. When you reach the elevator, ride it down to the next floor. There, go right and defeat a couple more Mini-Horseheads and continue into the next room. In this room, go right and jump onto the platform above the lava. Go right on that platform and destroy those blocks and jump over the flame (sound familiar?), then jump to the next platform. Be sure to avoid getting hit by those VERY annoying floating blue head things that float towards you while moving up and down. Keep jumping from platform to platform and destroying the blocks and hopping over the flames until you reach the wall. There, take the Key and get out of this room by going left jumping from platform to platform. Keep going to the left and pass the elevator going up, and go into the next room. There, jump onto the bridge that disintegrates when walked on and run left across it while defeating the 2 Myus on it as well. Keep going left and unlock the door with a Key, then go down the elevator to the floor below. Once there, go right and unlock that door with your last Key and keep going right. Defeat a couple of blue colored Stalfos that jump down from the above platforms to attack you, then continue right a little bit more. You'll see a P-Bag sitting on a high platform; to reach it, cast the Jump spell on yourself and jump onto the lower platform, then to the higher one. Take the bag to get 100 experience points. Now, drop off the ledge and keep going to the right into the next room. In this room, go right and defeat a couple of red Ironknuckles, then continue into the next room. There, go right and into the boss's room. The boss of this palace is Carock.To defeat Carock you should definitely cast Shield on yourself as well as Reflect so you can reflect Carock's spells back at it. Then you should stay in either end of the room, facing the room's center. That makes it so that Carock can't appear right behind you! Now, just stay in that side and whenever its spells come toward you, just reflect it back at it with your shield. (It only causes damage when Carock is visible.) Then, just keep reflecting its spells and it'll eventually be defeated, its as simple as that. After you beat it, take the Key that falls from the ceiling and go right. Unlock the door and stand in front of the statue and the crystal will go into it and you'll gain a level! After that, go right and exit the now defeated palace!

Now that you're outside yet another defeated palace, walk left on the stream and follow it to the end. Get onto the path by the end and walk onto the bridge to leave the Island Maze. Then, go west and south into the cave. Go left through the cave and defeat the lizard enemy and 3 Achemen. When you exit the cave, continue south towards Nabooru. Instead of entering town, walk along the path straight to the right. Keep going straight across the water and you'll come across Palace 5, which you should obviously go inside of!

*** Palace 5 ***

From the start, go right and down the elevator to the floor below. Go right and defeat a couple of Ropes, then continue up and right to the next room. In this room, go right and avoid the Skull Balls until you reach the wall. Use the Fairy spell to fly up to the higher ledge, then continue flying right to the next room.

At that point, stand under the platform with the Key and wait until most of the blocks have fallen. Then, use your sword to cut a path up to the platform above you. Follow that path up and take the Key. Now, go left and cut through the blocks in your way and continue left into the next room. In this room, go left and defeat an orange Ironknuckle.

Cast the spells Shield and Jump to be able to take less damage per hit and to be able to jump over Gooma. Defeat it by coming in close and stabbing it whenever it's not attacking with its mace. When it does swing its mace, just avoid getting hit by dodging (jump back) or jumping over it. Keep attacking Gooma until it's defeated. After you beat it, take the Key and unlock the door to the right, then walk in front of the statue. The crystal will be placed and you'll recover your health/magic and be able to gain a level. Then, go right and out of the palace!

Now that you're outside of the 5th palace again, go left all the way across the water to Nabooru. Head south and you'll find the black River Devil (looks like a black octopus). Stand in front of it and play the Flute (press B to play) and it'll disappear. Now, follow the path around and you'll enter a hidden side-scrolling area.

There, cast the Fairy spell and fly right along the top of the screen to avoid damage. Then, continue right to the end of the area. Now, go east a little bit and go north along the right side of the small lake. Continue north and enter the cave there. Inside, go right and defeat the hopping spider enemies with the Fire spell and your sword and continue right into the next room. Go right and defeat an orange Lizardman, then keep going and defeat a red and black Lizardman. Then, continue right out of the cave. Now, go right 2 steps, down 3 steps, and then right 1. At that point, use the Hammer to reveal the Hidden Town of Kasuto, otherwise known as New Kasuto!

*** New Kasuto ***

In New Kasuto, go right and talk to the old lady dressed in blue that comes out of the second house. She'll say you deserve her help and lets you inside. (Note: You MUST have obtained the 3 other Magic Containers prior to talking to this old lady, or else she won't let you inside her house!) There, go right into the basement, then continue right and take the Magic Container there! Now, go left and up out of the basement and exit the house. Now, go right and talk to the old lady in orange clothes, then enter her house to recover your magic. Then, go right into the next scene and talk to the tall lady dressed in red that comes out of the first house. Go in her house to recover your life. Now, keep going right and you'll come across a building with the door open. Go inside that building and go right. Go to the fireplace and press Up; you'll go into the hidden basement from there. Go up to the old wizard to learn the Spell spell. Now, go left out of the basement, and then leave the house. Now, go right to the last scene of town. There, cast the Spell spell to make a hidden building appear. Go inside and go right to the wall, then take the Magic Key! Now, leave this building and go left all the way out of town.

Now, go up and left into the cave you came through to get to this area. Go left all the way through the 2 rooms of the cave and defeat the Lizardmen and hopping spiders along the way. When you exit the cave, go south and east around the lake, then continue south to the desert area. You'll find 3 stones in a triangular pattern. Stand in the middle of the 3 and play the Flute to make Palace 6 appear nearby. Now, just go down into the next palace!

*** Palace 6 ***

From the entrance, go right to the elevator and go down it into the actual palace. Ride it down 2 floors (the first floor's optional) and go right. Once there, go right and unlock the door with the Magic Key and then cast the Reflect spell on yourself. Defeat a couple of Doomknockers and the Stone Warrior, and then keep going right into the next room. Here, defeat the blue Ironknuckle, and then cast the Jump spell on yourself. Now, continue right and jump over the 2 pits and keep going right. Unlock another door with the Magic Key, then defeat another blue Ironknuckle.

In this room, go right and cast the Jump spell again, then jump to the other ledge to the right and keep going right into the next room.

When you reach the third one, cast the Jump spell. Walk a couple small steps to the right, then jump to the right to avoid a hidden pit below. Now, cut through the block wall with your sword, and then continue into the next room. Here, go right and you'll enter a battle against a blue Ironknuckle mounted on a horse (remember the 2nd Palace boss; this is it). Defeat it like you did back in Palace 2, then take the Key that falls and keep going right. Unlock the door and take the Cross that's in the small room. Now, go back to the previous room. Cut through the blocks, and then cast the Jump spell on yourself and go left to the first Ironknuckle statue you see. Jump at that point to the left, and continue left to the next room. Here, cast the Jump spell again and go left, then jump to the other ledge and continue left into the next room. Here, go left and down the steps and avoid the fireballs those statue heads spit at you. Keep going left into the follow room. In this room, go left and down the steps and go left to the pit. Drop into it to drop down to the floor below. Don't land on the first floor you see; keep dropping and hold Right to land on the ledge on the second floor down. Now, go right and unlock the door with the Magic Key, then continue right and defeat a blue Ironknuckle. Then, go right into the next room. In this room, cut through the blocks with your sword and jump across two pits while avoiding the flying blue head things. Keep going right, jumping from platform to platform then cut through the blocks with your sword and go into the following room. Here, go right and defeat a red Ironknuckle and a couple of Doomknockers, then continue right into the next room.

Here, go right to the pit and drop down it to the next floor. As soon as you appear in the next floor, quickly cast the Fairy spell and fly to the ledge, then continue right and avoid the blue Stalfos and go into the next room. In this room, go right and jump onto the middle platform and the boss, Barba the dragon, will appear. Cast Shield and Jump on yourself for this battle, then you'll be able to kill him quicker! Attack Barba by jumping up and hitting its head with your sword while avoiding its fire attack by jumping over them or by jumping to another platform for safety. Just keep hurting Barba with your sword until it's defeated. If this is too complicated then just jump when he shoots his fire then duck and hit him when he is going back into the lava with your sword. Either way your going to beat him. After you win, take the Key and go right, then unlock the door and walk in front of the statue. After you recover your life and magic, and gain a level, go right out of another defeated palace!

Back in the overworld, go left and walk onto the bridge. Simply cast the Fairy spell and fly along the top of the screen all the way to the end. When you're in the overhead view again, go left into the deserted town of Old Kasuto.

*** Old Kasuto ***

When you enter the town, you'll find that it's deserted and blue Moas occupy the entire area. So, go left and enter the first house. Go right through the house into the basement, then go right down the steps and talk to the old wizard to learn the Thunder spell! You can only learn the spell if you have all the Magic Containers. After you get the spell, go left and up the steps, then continue out of the house. Now, since there isn't anything of interest here, just go right out of the town.

Now, go back east across the bridge scene like before. Use the Fairy spell to quickly get across, or just get across by jumping and attacking like you normally would. After you reach the other side go up and left to the other bridge. Get across it, then continue west to the graveyard. Step into the graveyard, and then quickly get back onto the path so if a monster attacked, you wouldn't fight it. After the shadows of monsters disappear from the map, quickly go south through it and you'll enter a side-scrolling scene. Go right through this scene while avoiding the blue Moa and the fireballs the red Lizardmen above you are throwing towards you. When you exit the scene, go down a couple steps, and then go all the way left while trying to avoid battles unless you want to fight. Keep going left and you'll enter another side-scrolling scene. Get through this cave area by jumping over the pit and defeating the orange Lizardman while avoiding the blue Moas. Continue left and jump over a couple of pits, then defeat another orange Lizardman. After you beat it, cast the Jump spell and jump over the larger gap and exit the cave. Now, continue going north on the path. When it splits, go along the right path and continue north until you enter another cave scene. Get through it just like you did in the previous one (it's the same exact layout), then when you're outside again, keep going up and into the cave. Here, go left through the cave while defeating the red floating eyeball enemies and the blue Moas. Keep going left and defeat the blue Lizardman, then continue out of the cave. Next, go south along the path, then go left and up the other side and into a hidden cave scene. Jump over the lava pit and go left and defeat the red Lizardman. Continue left and beat some blue Moas and a red eyeball enemy, and then jump over a few pits. Next, continue left and defeat another red Lizardman, then jump over the larger pit using the Jump spell's help. Then, go left out of the cave and continue north into the real cave. Go right and defeat a blue Lizardman, then a red one, and continue right out of the cave. Once outside again, just go up into the Great Palace!

*** Great Palace ***

When you enter the Great Palace, go right and the forcefield will disappear because you've beaten all the other palaces. Go right to the elevator and ride it down to the floor below. Go left and defeat the Mini-Thunderbird, then continue left into the next room. In this room, cast the Fairy spell and fly across the top of the room to the elevator, then ride it down to the next floor. Once there, go right into the following room. Here, simply go all the way right across the 2 bridges to the next room. In this room, go right and defeat a Mini- Thunderbird, then continue right to the elevator and ride it to the next floor. Go right and cut through the blocks with your sword, then go right through the room while either avoiding or defeating the orange head things floating around. Cut through some more blocks at the other side of the room, and then go right into the following room. In this room, go right and watch out for the Mini-Thunderbird enemy that jumps towards you with sword in hand. Get past it quickly or defeat it, then continue going right. Go right and jump up a couple of steps and defeat a Bot. Then, cut through the blocks using the Down Stab technique and go right and down the elevator 3 floors. There, go right and defeat the Mini-Thunderbird and go right into the next room. In this room, go right and defeat the red Rope snake enemy and some of those floating orange head things, then continue right all the way to the elevator. Go down it to the next floor and go right. Cut through the blocks with your sword and defeat a couple of Bots, then go right and cut through some more blocks. Defeat another Bot and go right into the next room. Here, go right across the disintegrating bridge and defeat the red Rope, and then jump onto the platform at the end of the bridge. Then, continue right to the elevator leading to the next floor. Here, go right and try and avoid the giant Skull Ball. Defeat a blue Mini- Thunderbird, and then continue right to the next room. Here, go right and defeat another blue Mini-Thunderbird, then continue right and up the steps. Avoid the giant Skull Ball if possible, then cut through the blocks using the Down Stab technique to cut down through them. Next, just go right and down the elevator. Go down through 3 floors to the very bottom, then go left. Defeat a Bot and a Mini-Thunderbird, and then continue left into the next room. In the next room, go left and you'll see a bunch of blocks on the floor. Defeat some floating orange head enemies that come near, then cut down through the row of blocks and you'll reveal a hidden pitfall. Drop down to the floor below and go right. Go right and hit the giant blue Bot to make a bunch of regular Bots appear. Defeat them all and go right into the next room. In this room, go right across the disintegrating bridge. You'll find a narrow pitfall below you. Drop through the bridge when the floor below you disappears, then fall down the pit to the bottom floor. Once there, head right into the following room. In this room, go all the way to the right as far as you can possibly go and the Thunderbird will appear. This is a semi-boss of the Great palace and probably the hardest boss of the game. To beat him cast Shield and Jump to make things a little easier for Link. Then, when Thunderbird appears onscreen, use the Thunder spell on it to make it change blue, which makes it vulnerable to your attacks and weaker. Now, attack it by jumping up and hitting its head with your sword. Try and avoid it and its fireballs by moving around the room and hitting its head with your sword whenever you get a chance. If life gets low use the Life spell. Keep attacking Thunderbird until it's defeated, then you'll have to move on to the final boss Link's own Shadow! After you beat it, continue right and you'll fight Dark Link, or Link's Shadow, the final boss. To defeat this easier than heck boss just stay at the left side of the screen and while ducking hit the A button (your sword attack) over and over. Eventhough he will hit you a couple of times you will still hit him more. Eventually he will die and you will win the game! Now give yourself a pat on the back for beating this one of a kind, side-scrolling Zelda game!


HEART/MAGIC CONTAINERS AND ITEMS

HEART CONTAINERS

MAGIC CONTAINERS

1. From the North Palace (where you start the game), go right across the bridge, then head south and you'll find a cave. Enter it and get past some Lowders and Octoroks and you'll come to the magic container.

2. After you exit the cave where you obtain the Hammer, go into the desert area and destroy the boulder, then walk on that patch of land to fall into a hidden cave, You'll see the magic container right there waiting for you to take it!

3. In the Island Maze in East Hyrule, follow these directions to find the magic container. You should have the Boot if you're going to use these directions to get it. From the start of the maze, walk right on the water, then follow the stream east, then north. When it turns east again, walk off and follow the path left, then up. You'll fall into a hidden cave, where you'll find the container.

4. This magic container is located in New Kasuto. In this town, go right to the second house and talk to an old lady dressed in blue. She'll let you inside her house; now go through the house and get the last magic container! (You can only get this Magic Container if you've collected the other 3 containers.)


ITEMS

MAGIC SPELLS

Shield: This spell raises your defense power, thus allowing you to take more hits from an enemy. It cuts all damage taken from enemies by half. You get it in Rauru from the old wizard in the 5th house's basement.

Jump: When you use this spell, you can jump twice as high in the air, enabling you to jump over taller enemies and reach higher ledges. You get it in the town of Ruto after you give the lady standing in front of the 4th house the goddess statue found in a cave east and north of town. When she lets you in the house, you can just go downstairs and talk to the wizard to learn the spell.

Life: This spell restores 3 meters of health on your life bar. It is more than likely one of the most useful spells you'll get! You learn it in the Water Town of Saria by entering the 3rd house and checking under the table to find a mirror. Then, go back to the 2nd house and you'll be allowed in; now you can go into the basement and get the magic!

Fairy: Using this spell turns Link into a fairy, enabling you to reach places you couldn't normally reach because you can fly! You get it in Mido by getting into the 3rd house (the church does NOT count as a house!) after retrieving the Medicine from a cave north of Saria. Then, just visit the wizard in the basement to learn Fairy. With this spell you can even fly through locked doors without using a key!

Fire: When you cast this spell, it allows you to shoot a fireball from your sword each time you use it! This is the ONLY way you can defeat some of the enemies in East Hyrule. You get it in the town of Nabooru by going through the town to the fountain, then press B to get water. Then, go right and talk to the lady in front of the house; she'll let you in now! Then, just go downstairs and learn the spell.

Reflect: When you use your shield while this spell is activated and you can reflect enemies' attacks right back at them (in particular, the wizards' spells in Palace 4). You get this spell in Darunia by visiting the 1st house in the 3rd scene of the town after you find the Lost Child in the maze to the east. (Read the walkthrough for details on finding the child.)

Spell: This spell has only one purpose in the entire game. You use it in New Kasuto at the very last scene of the town to make a hidden room appear containing the Magic Key. You find this spell in New Kasuto by entering the 8th house (remember to count the houses as you get through town so you don't miss it!) and press Up in front of the fireplace, then talk to the wizard there to learn Spell.

Thunder: This is the most powerful spell in the game, but it's only important use is in the Great Palace. To get this spell, go to Old Kasuto and enter the very first house. (Be careful because there are many hidden enemies there, unless you've gotten the Cross.) There, go talk to the wizard and learn the last spell in the game!

ITEMS

Boots: You use these boots to walk across some bodies of water, such as the river flowing through the maze near Palace 4 in East Hyrule. You can find these valuable boots inside of Palace 4.

Candle: With this candle in your inventory, darkened caves will become lighted. You find this item in the cave almost directly north of the North Castle.

Cross: This cross reveals the ghost enemies that are flying around in the graveyard and in Old Kasuto. You can obtain this very useful item in Palace 6.

Flute: When you play the Flute in front of the black octopus looking creature in East Hyrule, it makes the him disappear, granting you access to the rest of that continent. You'll find this item in Palace 5.

Hammer: When you get the Hammer, you can destroy those boulders in the overworld that block your path once and for all! You can find this item in the last cave of the cave maze in the mountainous area at the southwest section of West Hyrule.

Handy Glove: When you have this item in your inventory, you can destroy the blocks that fall from the ceiling in some palaces with your sword. You can get this very helpful item in Palace 2. Watch out here comes SUPER LINK!

Magic Key: When you have this key in your possession, you have absolutely NO NEED for the Small Keys in the palaces. The Magic Key can open any locked door and is a necessity if you want to get through and beat Palace 6 because there are no Small Keys inside! You get this item in New Kasuto.

Raft: This item only has one purpose. You need this item to cross the sea and reach East Hyrule and the second half of the game/world. You just have to walk onto the dock near Mido to use the Raft and cross the sea. You can find this item in Palace 3.
