1. Info of Me

Hi! My name is Guy77 and I believe that this game is the #1 Nintendo 64 game of 
all time! This is the third Guide I've made. This game took me almost a year to 
beat!I like it better than Zelda: Majora's Mask, which took me only about 3 months. 
My e-mail address is tcalbright@numail.org, just incase any of this stuff is 
incorrect, or if you want to e-mail me. Ok, enough about me, let's talk about the 
Hero of Time! 
   

2. Beginning Hero of Time

First, go to the Temple of Time, become an adult, talk to that guy that gives 
you the Light Medallion, and talk to Sheik. Then, go to Lon Lon Ranch and race Ingo 
twice to get Eponia back (hint: stay on the inside when you're racing him). After 
that, go to the graveyard in Kariokio Village and race Dampe` the gravekeeper (you 
don't have to beat him, just get to him before he closes the door) and he'll give 
you the Hookshot. After that, go to Kokiri Village, into the Lost Woods, and into 
the Sacred Realm. Get past all of the bull guards using your Hookshot. When you get 
to the big guard with the hammer, dodge his hammer pound and slash at him until he 
dies (you'll get around 50 rupees for killing him). Then go up the stars and you'll 
see that Sarah isn't on the stump that she sits on. Use your Hookshot to get up the 
tree and into the Forest Temple. If you can't get past the temple (believe me, it's 
HARD) then e-mail me and I'll be able to help you out.


3. Forest Temple

When you get in the Forest Temple, destroy the Wolfoes. Look to your right and 
you'll see vines. Destroy the Skulltulas with your hookshot and climb up the vines. 
Get on the log sticking out of the wall, walk across it and jump to the other log 
on the other wall. Get the key and jump back down to the ground. Go through the 
door (behind the Wolfoes). Kill the Big Skulltula and go through the next door. 
You'll see 4 Poes make an elevator go down and they'll dissapear. Go across the big 
room that the Poes were in and go up the stairs and through the door. Kill the Blue 
Bubble and go through the next door. Kill the 2 Stalfoes( use Z targeting and hold 
up your shield. Attack them after they try to attack you.) Get the key and leave. 
Go back down the stairs (you should be in the big room where the Poes were) and 
take a right up to the block. Play the Song of Time and it will dissapear. Go 
through the door and take a right up the vines (look out for the Skulltulas). Go 
through the door and kill the Blue Bubble. Get the map and go through the next 
door. Hookshot to the platform (or jump on the vines) and hit the switch. Jump down 
to the ground and take a left to the well. Jump in it and run across to the chest 
to get a key. Go up the ladder andwalk forward some and go through the door. You 
should be back in the big room where the Poes were. So go across to the small 
stairs and unlock the door. Avoid the Blue Bubble and go across to the ladder. Go 
up it and take a left to the green block. Push it all the way to the wall. Then go 
backwards some to the opening and walk all the way to the gate. Take a right and a 
right again and you'll see the block again. Push it all the way until you here the 
sound that tells you that you did the right thing. Climb up it and go up to the red 
block. Push it across until you can't anymore. Go back down to the lower level 
(with the green block) and take a left. You should see a ladder so climb up it. You 
should be back to the level with the red block. Take a left and go around until you 
see the red block. Pushit forward and you should here that sound again that tells 
you that you did the right thing. Climb up the block and up the ladder and kill the 
Blue Bubbles. Go through the locked door and across the twisted hall. Jump across 
the platforms and through the door. Go down the stairs until you reach the door. Go 
through it and kill the 3 Stalfoes (they're hard!). After that yo'll get the Hero's 
Bow! Go back through the door you entered. and Shoot the 3 pictures of the purple 
Poe. Defeat her. and go through the door that you got your bow. Go across to the 
other door and shoot the 3 pictures of the red Poe. Defeat her and go back to to 
the twisted hall. Go through the door (with the Blie Bubbles) and shoot the silver 
eye switch. Go through the door with the twisted hall and it'll be back to normal. 
Go through the hall and get the Master's Key in the gold chest. Jump down the hole 
and defeat the Blue Bubbles to get the key. Go through the door and through the 
next door that has the floating hand. Destroy it and the 3 small hands. Go back 
trough the door and all the way up the green and red blocks. Go through the hall 
that used to be twisted and across the platforms again. Go down the stairs and 
through the door. Then go through the room with the hero's bow in it. and up the 
stairs (where you killed the red Poe). Go across the platforms and through the haal 
with the Green Bubbles. Get on the platform with the spikes circling around it. You 
can either use Den's Fire if you have it, or you can get behind the torch and shoot 
an arrow at the frozen eye switch. Go back through the now twisted hall with the 
Green Bubbles and through the door on the ground (or it might be a hole, I can't 
remember). Go across the checkered floor (watch out for the falling cieling!) and 
through the door. Put the blocks of the green Poe together and defeat the Poe. Go 
through the door and you should be back in the big room where the Poes were. Go to 
the middle of the room and you'll fight the last Poe. She'll make copies of herself 
(the real one is the one that spins in 1 circle). Shoot her 3 different times to 
kill her. The elevator should come up so go in it. Turn the block until you solve 
it (e-mail me if you need help on it. I had trouble solving it too!). Go through 
the Master's Door to fight the Phantom Ganon. Get on the part of the floor with the 
Triforce painted on it. Shoot him with your bow when he's coming out of the picture 
and watch out for his clone! After you shoot him 3 or 4 times, he'll jump of his 
horse. Now THIS part is HARD! Wait for him to through an electric ball at you, and 
sind it back to him with your sword. He'll fall to the ground so slash at him when 
he does. Be aware that he will send the electric ball back to you even faster, so 
watch out for that! After you do that 4 or 5 times, his phantom will die and Sarah 
will give you the Forest Medallion! Then Kokiri Forest will be back to normal!


4. Goron City

After the Forest is at normal, you can go back to the Temple of Time and become a 
kid again. But to get the next Medallion , you need to go to Goron City at Death 
Mountain. When you get there, you should get on the second floor and you'll see a 
Goron rolling around. Bomb him, and he'll get scared, thinking you're a Guerodu. 
After that, he'll realize that you're just a boy (actually, a teenager). Then he'll 
say that his name is Link (or whatever you made your name as). Then he'll know that 
your name is Link, and he'll talk to you somemore and give you the Goron Tunic to 
wear in the Fire Temple. So go to Daurana's room and pull the statue that he stands 
in front of, and enter to be in the volcano! Talk to Sheik and she'll teach you the 
Fire Temple Song (I forgot what this one was, too). Then take a left over a small 
bridge made of cement, and jump down the hole (or climb down the ladder. I jump 
down). When you go down the hole, you'll be in the Fire Temple!


5. Fire Temple

First, walk up the stairs and go in the left door. You'll see and Darauna and he'll 
talk to you. Then he'll leave and then you have to take a left to the cage and free 
the Goron. Take the key that he leaves you and go through the door that you came in 
from. Go all the way across and through the locked door. Take a left and go all the 
way across to free the Goron and get the key. Go back to the beginning of the room 
and go across the bridge and through the door. Get on the inside of the room and 
climb up the wall (look out for the bats). Jump down to the block and push it on 
the fire. Jump on the block and go up and through the door.Take a right and climb 
up the walls. Jump across and push the block to the ground. Climb up to the top and 
through the door. You'll be in a maze, so look out for the fire (remember this 
place for later). Take a left and get past the fire and through the door (it might 
be fake, so bomb it just incase). Hit the eye switch and go through the door. Get 
the map in the treasure chest, and go back to the maze. Take a right all the way to 
the spot with the boulder rolling back and forth. Go through the door to get the 
compass. Go back through and go to where the big wall of fire is. Step on the 
switch and go past the fire and through the door (bomb it first, these doors will 
trick you!) to fight a boss. Bomb him when he starts spinning around. Then attack 
his head. Keep doing this and his head will blow up. Get on the platform in the 
middle and go up to the top and through the door. Climb up the walls and jump 
across. Push the block to the ground and climb up the wall. Shoot the switch and 
climb up the wall where the fire used to be. Go through the door and you'll be in 
another maze. Go all the way to where the Goron is. Free him, and take the key. Go 
through the door and you'll be back in the maze with the fire that I told you to 
remember. Go through the door that has the eye switch in it. Don't go through the 
door that has the map in it. Instead, go to the right and through the door. Go all 
the way across and through the door. You should be back in the maze that you freed 
the Goron in (not the one with the fire, the other one). Jump across to the 
platform with the big crack in the middle. Bomb it, and jump down. Free the Goron 
and take the key. Go through the door and you'll be in the maze with the fire in 
it. Go back to the door with the eye switch in it, but not to the room with the map 
in it. Go through the other door and instead of going all the way across, get on 
the pole sticking out of the lava. Jump to the platform and go through the door. 
Step on the switch and go all the way up to the treasure chest. Get the mallet and 
go back to the switch (DO NOT GO DOWN THE HUGE HOLE!). Hit the platform that sinks 
down with your mallet and you'll fall down. Step on the switch and bring the box 
with you down the stairs. Put it on the other switch and go through the door. 
You'll be back in the maze with the fire in it. Go to the big platform in the 
middle that has the pillar sticking out of it. Hit the rusted switch with your 
mallet and go through the door. Play the song of time near the ledge, and jump 
across and hit the switch. Free the Goron and go through the other door. Hit the 
statue with your mallet and go through the door. Get the key and go through the 
door. You'll be back at the beginning of the Temple, so go across to the other 
statue and hit it with your mallet. Go through the door and kill all of the 
enemies. Go through the next door and kill the guy that spins in around (bomb him 
and destroy his head). Go through the door and you should be back in the maze with 
the fire (man this place is popular!) Hit the pillar that is on the platform with 
your mallet. Jump down there and you'll be in the room where Darauna was. Go 
through the door to fight Volvagia. This boss is kind of hard. But not as hard as 
Phantom Ganon was. To defeat him, hit him on the head with your mallet when he 
comes out of his hole. Then slice him with your sword. He'll fly out, and when he 
goes back, he'll pop out. That's when you hit him on the head again, and repeat the 
process until he dies (also, look out for the falling rocks!). When he's dead, take 
the heart piece and leave through the teleporter. Darauna will give you the Fire 
Medallion, and peace will be returned to Death Mountain again!    


6. Zora's Domain

After Death Mountain is back to normal, you'd probably want to get another 
medallion, right? The next one is located at Hylia Lake, but you need to go to 
Zora's Domain first. When you get there, you'll see that everything is frozen, and 
there is no way to thaugh it, I tried everything. So when you're there, you should 
go past King Juba Juba's stand and into Zora's Fountain. Hop across the ice bergs 
and take a right into the big cave (or, if you want, you can get the heart piece a 
little further ahead). When you're in the cave, go all the way past the room with 
the spinning spikes (remember this for later) and go to the foorm with the silver 
rupees. Collect them all, and go through the door. Walk ahead, and you'll soon see 
a BIG room. So kill the Ice Keese and the ice monsters that freeze you. Climb up 
and over to the blue fire. Catch it in a bottle (you'd probably want more than just 
one) and go back to the room with the spinning spikes. and go to the red ice on the 
right. Melt it, and go through. In here, you'll see blocks that you have to arang 
to get to the end of this mini dungeon. I don't exactly remember how to arrange 
them, but I do know that it isn't very easy and it can be quite frustrating at 
times. So when you do correctly arrang them, one of them should be in front of (or 
near) an opening (it should be to your left when you walk in). So climb in it, and 
melt the ice near the door. Go through the door and you'll have to fight an Ice 
Wolfoe. Defeat it, and Sheik will appear. She'll them tell you the song to warp to 
Lake Hylia and also give you the Iron Boots! Now before you warp to Lake Hylia, you 
need the Zora Tunic. So get some blue fire (if you ran out) and go back to King 
Juba Juba. Unfreeze him, and he'll give you the tunic,which lets you go underwater 
for as long as you want. After you have it, you can warp to Lake Hylia. When you 
get there, put on the Zora's Tunic and the Iron Boots. Then go down to the bottom 
of the lake (in front of the gate). Take out your hookshot and hit the bluish-green 
diamond. It will come out and the gate will open. Go in the gate, and you'll be in 
the Water Temple. 



7. Water Temple

Take off the Iron Boots and float up to the surface, and hookshot your way
to the other side (using the target here). Now locate the path that has a
series of torches near it to find Princess Ruto. Follow her back to the
surface (by removing the boots), and play Zelda's Lullaby in front of the
Triforce to lower the water.Head through the next door and destroy all of the 
spikes in this room toget the Dungeon Map (which you will need). Okay, now make 
your way backdown to the first floor, by hopping back down to the floor. See that 
doorthat is locked? Ok, good. Shoot an arrow through a torch to the middle
torch, and then light the next one. Doing this will unlock the door. Enter
it, and kill the weird clam things in this room to get a small key.
Return to the main area of the temple, and find the large block here which
you can push, and push it down off the ledge, go down there by putting the
Iron Boots on, and run to the north to the end of the path, then float up
to the top of this area. Hit the clear switch up here and the water
fountain will shoot up. Hop onto it to ride to the next level and to find a
doorway, and enter it. In the next room, you will see a large stone snake
underwater. Use the Iron Boots to sink down, and make your way to the
snake's tail. Shoot the clear switch that is across from you with your
Hookshot, then hit the target to pull yourself onto a ledge. Hit the switch
again, then use the target once more to reach the other side of the area,
and then float back up to the surface.At the top, you will find a chest with a 
small key, then hit the next clearswitch to raise the gate once more, then leave 
the same way you came inhere through. Head back to the block, and use the hookshot 
to hit the abovetarget, and to get back to a path that leads you back to the main 
area ofthe temple. Head south to find a path with a cracked hole in the ground, so
blow it up with a bomb, then hop into the water and sink to the bottom.
Kill the killer clams, then follow the path to the end, then float back up
to the surface. Step onto the next floor switch, then hit the target with
your hookshot that rises up with the dragon statue. Pull yourself across to
the platform with the dragon. Enter the next door, kill the spiders, then
find the prison cell.Use the Charged Sword Spin attack to activate the switch 
inside of thecell, and then head through the newly unlocked door, then go into the 
mainroom once more. Find the locked door in the center of the tower inside of
the main room, and enter it on the first floor. Look up once you are insideto see a 
target, and hit it with your hookshot. Play Zelda's Lullaby near the Triforce to 
raise the water level. Sink down to the bottom of thisarea, and follow the newly 
opened tunnel.Find the clear switch in the room, and hit it with your hookshot, 
then killthe two enemies in here, and a gate rises. Head through this gate, and 
float up to find an area with a small key inside a chest. Go back to the main 
tower, and float up to the second floor. Hookshot back up to the Triforce, and play 
the Song of Time to raise the water. Leave through thedoor here, and use the 
Hookshot to get across to the western ledge with the target above it and some 
jarsnear it. Follow the path to find some waterblocking a chest, so hit the jewel 
near it to lower it, and take the Compass from the chest. Go back to the main room, 
and return to the area where you first met Princess Ruto. Float to the second 
floor, and enter the room at the top by bombing the wall with a crack in it. Take 
the small keyfrom inside. Head to the west area where a locked door is, and use the 
small key on it to get through the door. Inside, stand on the water fountain then 
hit the switch to make it rise, and take you with it. Hop off it, then exit the 
room to find another Triforce symbol. Play Zelda's Lullaby here to raise the water 
once again. Now head over to the east area of the temple, then sink down to the 
second floor. See that block? Pull it out until it can't go any further, then 
return to the west, and to the locked door. Pull yourself out of the water, and 
head through the door. On the other side, you will find some birds, so kill them 
first, them hop down onto the moving platforms. To make your way up, hookshot your 
way to the top, and unlock the door at the top. Hit the clear switch in here, then 
hookshot your way to the first dragon head. Now activate the switch once more, and 
head over the second gap, and onto the statue. Hit the switch again to reveal one 
more dragon head, and hit the switch once more to lower it, climb onto it, then hit 
the switch once more to raise it. Head through the door at the top. Kill the 
enemies inside, then hit the hookshot target on the ceiling to pull yourself across
the gap, and enter the next room. Run across this lighter-looking area to the other 
door, then turn around and run back towards the way you came. You will now have to 
fight the Dark Link of yourself. To fight him, you'll have to hit him whenever his 
guard is down, but he does everything you do, so it's hard. Use Din's Fire first, 
because he can't block that. Then use the Megaton Hammer is easier than other 
stuff, but it takes a bit longer and you can take more damage. Take the Longshot 
from the next room (after beating Dark Link), then play the Song of Time in front 
of the block to show a new passage. Hop through the hole and into a river. Put on 
the Iron Boots, and avoid the whirlpools to get to the end of the river, and onto a 
ledge with some jars. Hookshot your way to a new ledge by hitting the target above 
you. Shoot the yellow eye above the gate to open it. From the second floor middle 
area, shoot the eye on the wall across from you, then hookshot your way across to 
the other side of the platform. Run forward to the block, and push it out of your 
way to reveal a new path. Take the small key from the chest, then exit to the 
north. Towards the end of this path there is a target above you which leads back to 
the main area. Go to the first floor, and head to the northern path, and sink down 
and go past the spiked thingies on the floor. Use the Longshot to get across the 
spikes, then enter the locked door, then sink down into the next path. Kill all of 
the Tektites in here, then sink down to the bottom of the water here, dodge the 
rolling rocks, then float back to the surface on the other side of this pool. Kill 
all of the Stingers in this room, and you will find a floor switch. Find the wall 
with a crack in it, blow it up, and find the large block. Go back into the previous 
room to find another wall that can blow up. Do this, and you will be on the other 
side of the block. Push and pull the block back and forth until you get it out of 
this area, and onto the floor switch. Now that the water is higher, head to the 
large set of stairs that allow you to leave the room. Step onto the switch in here, 
then hop from fountain to fountain until you reach the other platform on the other 
end of this area. Wait for the giant rock to roll by, then walk up the riverway 
until you reach a new path that allows you to sink down into a new area. Kill the 
shell monster, then float up to the next room. Open the next locked door, enter it, 
and take the Boss Key. Head back to the main area, and into the central tower area. 
Make your way to the second floor, and use play Zelda's Lullaby to raise the water, 
go up to the 3rd floor, back outside the Tower, and play the song again to raise 
the water up to the highest point. There is a hookshot target on a dragon head on 
this floor, so Lhookshot your way across, into the door, and climb the steep hill 
(stay to the left and after the spike goes by, run up without stopping), and enter 
the door at the top to fight Morpha. To beat her, get somewhat away from her, and 
when she tries to grab you, hookshot her nucleas and slash it (or use your hammer). 
Keep doing this until she dies. Then take the Heart Container and leave. Lake Hylia 
(not Zora's Domain) will be back to normal. So when the sun is rising, shoot it 
with an arrow to get the fire arrows!


8. Kariokio Village

After you get the Fire Arrows, you'd probably want another Medallion, right? So go 
to Kariokio Village. When you get there, you'll see that the place is on fire. 
Shiek will be standing in front of the well, and she'll tell you to get back. The 
Shadow Temple Monster will come out and attack you! Then it will leave. After that, 
Sheik will tell you the Shadow Temple song. Then she'll vanish (as usual). Go to 
the building above the well and show the man your Ocarina. He'll tech you the Song 
of Storms. Afterwards, you need to become a kid by going to the Temple of Time. 
When you get there, Sheik will be there too! How does she do that?! She'll teach 
you the Temple of Time song, and leave again. Become a kid, and go back to Kariokio 
Village. Go to the building above the well again, and play the Song of Sorms. The 
water in the well will drain, and you can enter.


9. Bottom of the Well
Once you are down at the bottom of the well, crawl through the hole in
the wall, then head up the ladder. Kill the Big Skulltula, then walk
through the wall. That's right, walk through the wall, because it's a fake wall. 
This is the main area of the well. Walk north, and locate the fountain, and stand 
in front of the Triforce Crest. Standthere, and play Zelda's Lullaby. The water 
will stop, then pass backthrough the main room, and re-enter the fake wall. Fall 
into the now-shallow pool, and crawl through the tunnel.Climb the next wall, and 
enter the door at the top. In here, the doorlocks behind you, and you must face 
some long-armed enemies. It willsprout up and around the area, so beware of him. 
Kill it by letting it's hands grab you, and when the body comes out, attack it. Kill
it, and you will get a chest with the Lens of Truth! Now that you have the Lens of 
Truth, you can either continue with your adventure, and head to the Shadow Temple, 
or you can continue to explore this small dungeon with the Lens of Truth. There are 
some Bombchus, a Deku Shield, and some hearts and Deku Nuts. There is also some  
rupees. When you are ready, leave the well.


10. Shadow Temple

Warp back to Adult Link, then play the Nocturne of Shadow to go to the
Shadow Temple entrance, behind the Graveyard. Rund east to find a ramp that 
leads into a room with a bunch of torches. Stand in the center of these 
torches, and use Din's Fire to light them all. This shows the entrance to
the Shadow Temple, so enter it. Follow the path, and use the Longshot target to get 
to the other side of the area. Now use the Lens of Truth on the wall to see the 
hole, so walk through it. Push the center statue around so that it is directed 
towards the "real" skull, which can be seen with the Lens of Truth. Do this, and a 
new path will be revealed. Check out the wall towards the northwest area, and you 
will see that it is a fake wall (use the Lens of Truth). Enter the next room, and 
the door will lock behind you. Fight the enemies in here (Keese and a ReDead), get 
the Dungeon Map by killing them, then kill the Keese to open the door again. Leave 
this room. Go west, and enter the next room. Kill the Dead Hands in here the same 
way as you did before in the Bottom of the Well area. Use your Lens of Truth to see 
hidden holes in the ground where the hand will come from. Place bombs on these 
holes to do some damage to the hands as they come up. Kill them all, then take the 
Hover Boots from the chest, then leave the room. Return to the large gap near the 
statue that you pushed, and equip the Hover Boots. Now run across the gap, and you 
will hover to the other side, where you can now enter the meat of the Dungeon. Run 
forward, and kill the Beamos at the bottom, then enter the next door. Avoid the 
large blades in here, and nab all of the Silver Rupees (5 of them), and the door 
will open. Check the newly opened door to find a small key inside of a chest. Check 
out the southern wall to find a fake wall, so enter it. Kill the two Gibdos in 
here, and you will get the Compass! Return to the room with the Beamos in it, and 
bomb the eastern wall, then enter the next door with your Small Key. Kill the Big 
Skulltulas in the next path, until you reach some large guillotines. Run past them 
as they rise to avoid getting hit, kill the Red Bubble that emerges from the abyss, 
and hop from platform to platform until you finally reach the mainland. Here you 
will be forced to fight a Stalfos, so kill it, and look east with the Lens of Truth 
to find a hidden path that leads to a new door. Go into the door, and kill the Like 
Like in here with your arrows so that it doesn't take anything of yours. Kill the 
flying Keese in the next room and the next door will open, get the Gold Skulltula 
and some Rupees, then return to the area where you fought the Stalfos. Kill the next
Stalfos that enters that same area, then run west, and use the rising platforms to 
make your way to the other side of this region. As you go on, collect all 5 Silver 
Rupees, including the one underneath the next Beamos to open the door. Enter it. In 
here, use the Lens of Truth to see a large block, so pull it out, and push it 
underneath the dropping spikes. Now pull the block towards the ledge to the west, 
and climb up it, and follow the path up here until you reach a floor switch. Step 
on it, and take the small key from the chest, then exit the room. Find the next 
guillotine area, and make your way to the other side to find a large chain. Use the 
Lens of Truth to see a new platform coming back and forth on the chain. Hop on it,
and ride to to the other side, and enter the next room. In here, take the Silver 
Rupees and kill the ReDead, then head through the door to the west, kill the Keese 
in here, then head through the next door. Toss the bomb flowre into the large skull 
statue and a small key will be revealed. Take it, and go back into the room with 
the Silver Rupees. Use the Lens of Truth to find a hidden hookshot target, so use 
it to find a locked door. Use the small key to open it. Run past the blades on the
ground here, and avoid them as the fan blows you back. Continue onward until
you reach an area with fans on both sides of Link. Use the Longshot on the wood 
above the next door to get past the fans without falling over the edge. At the end, 
use the Lens of Truth to find a hidden path near the closest fan to you, so use 
your Hover Boots to fly over to the ledge when the fan is blowing air to get there. 
Now defeat the two ReDeads in here by playing the Sun's Song, then attacking. Find 
the pile of trash in the southern corner of this room, and you will find a chest 
with a small key. Use this key to open the door to the north. In this next room, 
pull out the large block and push it all the way to the other end of the path. 
Climb up it to reach a ledge. Turn around and see Pierre the scarecrow. Play the 
Scarecrow's Song to make him stand up and whatnot, and then Longshot your way to 
the ledge where he is by aiming for Pierre himself. Hop onto the boat, and play 
Zelda's Lullaby while standing on the Triforce. Defeat the two Stalfos that attack 
as the boat is moving, and when the boat stops, jump off the it and onto the next 
area. Enter the next room, and use the Lens of Truth to see invisible walls! Make 
your way to the door to the north, use Din's Fire to burn the wooden-spiked walls 
that come in at you, then kill the ReDead to get the Boss Key! Go back to the boat 
area, and find the bed of Bomb Flowers. Shoot one with an arrow, and the statue 
will fall, making a bridge. This next area contains plenty of platforms, and 
invisible ones too. The boss door is on the other side, so use the Lens of Truth 
and the Hover Boots to reach the boss door. Enter it to fight the boss. This boss 
fight requires the use of your Fairy Arrow and the Lens of Truth. He'll swing his 
hands at you, and he'll also try to grab Link and crush him. What you want to do is 
to shoot his hands with your Fairy Bow, and when they turn blue, aim for his body 
(use the Lens of Truth), and hit the red area. When he falls over, attack it with 
your sword. Repeat this process over and over until Bongo Bongo finally goes down. 
Take the Full Heart Container, then step into the portal with Impa, and take the 
Shadow Medallion from her! Then Kariokio Village will be peaceful again (although 
it already was somewhat peaceful).


11. Gerudo Fortress 

Go west of Hyrule Field to Gerudo Valley, and speak with some of the people
there to learn about some of the Gerudo Thieves. To get across the bridge,
simply hookshot your way across the bridge. Talk to the Carpenter on the
other side, and he'll ask you to find his fellow Carpenters. Do this, and
enter Gerudo Fortress. No matter what you do, you will be spotted by a thief, and 
will be thrown into a jail cell. To get out of here, longshot your way to the 
wooden beam above your cell, and this leads outside. Wait for the guard below to 
walk past you, then fall down to the ground, and enter the fortress. You will find 
the first thief fast, but he won't come out yet, but if you talk to him you will 
have to fight a Gerudo Thief. Defeat her to get asmall key. Use this to free the  
first carpenter. Head through the next door, and go outside, go through the 
northern doorway, then head to the door to the right and go back outside. Now enter 
the next door that is just around the bend to find another Carpenter. Avoid the 
guard, then talk to the Carpenter to fight another Thief. Defeat her, take the 
small key, and free this Carpenter. Exit through the next door to go back outside. 
Enter the door to the right. Make your way past the guard, go outside, go left and 
drop down, and go through the door. Inside, avoid the guard, enter the cell area, 
talk to the carpenter, fight the thief, and free the carpenter with the small key. 
Go back the way you came, and go outside. Go right and drop onto the next roof,
and enter the next doorway. Eventually, you will reach the last carpenter
to free. Do the same thing as before to free him. Try to leave, and
you will get the Gerudo Membership Card from a Gerudo Thief, which allows
you to go anywhere here, as well as to the Gerudo Training Grounds. Go outside, and 
talk to the thief in the watchtower, and she will allow you to enter the Haunted 
Wasteland, which leads to the Spirit Temple.


12. Spirit Temple

Equip the Hover Boots and make your way to the large crates near the flagpoles.
Follow the flagpoles until you reach a small shack. Stand there until
you see a Poe, who will lead you to the Desert Colossus and the Spirit
Temple. Be sure to follow him, as well as the flagpoles. Check out the inner area 
of the temple, and read the signs and other stuff in here to learn that you cannot 
enter until you are a Child. Leave the temple to see Shiek, who will teach you the 
Requiem of Spirit. Play the Prelude of Light to get back to the Temple of Time, 
switch to Child Link, then return to the Desert Colossus and the Spirit Temple 
again by playing the Requiem of Spirit. Re-enter the temple, and talk to the Gerudo 
Thief, and answer "Nothing, really", and she'll eventually ask you to get the
Silver Gauntlets for her. Crawl through the small hole to officially
enter the Temple. Kill the Keese and blades in here, then bomb the Armos to unlock 
the two doors here. Enter the left-hand door, and kill the Stalfos, then kill
the Green Bubble enemy, then aim for the clear switch beyond the gate. Use your 
boomerang to hit it, then go across the gap and through the door on the other side. 
In the next room, hit the clear switch with your slingshot, then in the next area 
with the 2 torches, light them with Din's Fire to get a chest. Now enter this room 
through the northern door, kill the wallmaster, then grab the 5 silver rupees, then 
open the chest to get a small key. Go back to the room with the Armos, and enter the
small hole that is in between the two doors. Kill the Skullwalltulas, then climb 
the wall to the top, and enter the next room. Kill the 2 Lizalfos in here. In the 
next room, then stand on the platform in front of the large statue and use Din's 
Fire to light the torches on one side of the statue, and get the Dungeon Map from 
the chest. Locate the switch near the statue of the Armos. Head up the wall
to the statue, and push it off the ledge and on top of the switch to
open the door. Enter the next room, and collect the 5 Silver Rupees to
light the large torch. Now light a Deku Stick with the large torch, and
light the other torches in here to get a small key. Take it, then push
the large block with the sun face on it underneath the sunlight. Go through
the newly opened door.Enter the room with the large ax-welding enemy that will 
attack you if you touch it. Do so, and when it attacks, run around it, and hit his
back to damage him. Do this enough to kill him, and be sure to collect
the hearts that come out of the large pillars that he knocks over. Go
through the door that is behind his throne, and talk to the Owl. After
this is over, you can get the Silver Gauntlets from the chest. Okay, play the 
Prelude of Light to return to the Temple of Time, change into Adult Link, then play 
the Requiem of Spirit to return to the Spirit Temple. Once back here, use the 
Silver Gauntlets to push the large block out of your way, then hit the clear switch 
near the Beamos to open the other doors here. In the next room (the one to the 
northeast), grab all 5 Silver Rupees, then take the small key from the chest that 
is available to you. Go back to the previous room, and enter the room to the 
northwest. Kill the Wolfos in here, then play Zelda's Lullaby on the Triforce to 
get a chest with the Compass. Return to the room with the Beamos, and open the 
locked door. Kill the Like Like here, then climb the wall at the end, and enter the
next area. Push the mirror in here to make it reflect the light that shines in here.
Push it to hit each sun painting in here, and various things will happen, like 2 
chests in here, and a door will unlock. Kill the Floormaster that will fall to the 
ground, then enter the newly opened door. Run to the left hand of the statue to 
find a Triforce symbol. Play Zelda's Lullaby to get a small key from the chest. You 
can also see a new chest that has been dropped near the floor switch in here, so 
Longshot your way to that platform. Make your way up the stairs. Kill the snakes in 
here, then bomb the Beamos to open the next door. Enter it, and get near the floor 
switch. Make one of the Armos stand on it, and hit it so it stays there, then run 
through the door. In the next room, kill the large enemy in here the same way as 
you did before, then head out of the door behind the throne to find a chest 
containing the Mirror Shield. Go back to the Armos statue room again, and use the
Mirror Shield to reflect sunlight onto the sun painting to the north. This opens a 
door that contains a chest with a small key. Head west, and use this key on the 
locked door in the room. Destroy the Beamos in here, then climb the huge wall with 
the spikes in front of you. At the very top, destroy the Beamos in here, then head 
through the door. Make your way up the next set of stairs, and play Zelda's Lullaby 
on the Triforce, then head through the next door that you just opened. Kill the 
flaming enemies in this room, then blow up the fake doors in this area, and one of 
them contains an eye switch. Hit the switch with an arrow, climb onto the block, 
then Longshot the target. Step on the next floor switch near the flames, run past 
them, and fall into the next area to find the Boss Key. Take it, then exit the room 
then head into the next door. Eventually, you will find a room with a cell and a 
clear switch. Hit the switch by performing the spinning sword attack. Now enter the 
new room, and kill the Lizafos in here, then go west to find a mirror reflecting 
light. Find the fake wall, and blow it up with a bomb, then enter the room with the 
clear switch, and push the mirror thing so that it reflects the other mirrors and 
the light. Turn them all to reflect each other, and stand on the center area with 
the light, and use your Mirror Shield to reflect the light onto the sun painting. 
This will cause the platform you are standing on to lower. Use the Mirror Shield to 
reflect light into the statue's face, then Longshot your way into the new hole, 
then head through the boss key door to watch a long cinema. When it ends, head 
through the door, through the hallway, then climb up the center platform in the 
last room to fight the bosses. Each witch attacks with a different attack: One of 
them shoots Fire, and  the other shoots Ice. To beat their first forms, use your 
Mirror Shield to reflect one of their attacks back at the other witch (Ice back at 
the Fire Witch, and vice-versa). Do this four times, and the witches will combine 
forces, and toss both Ice and Fire at you! Absorb the attacks 3 times in a row, but 
they have to all be the same type, like Ice for example. Next, absorb the Fire 
attacks, and shoot it back at them, until Twinrova falls to a different platform. 
Run to his platform, and attack her with your sword over and over until she dies 
off! Take the Full Heart Container, then step into the portal with Nabooru, the 
Sage of Spirit.


13. Ganondorf's Castle

Once you have all six Medallions in your possession, head to the Temple of
Time to find Sheik. Listen to what he has to say, and watch the cut-scenes.
Exit the Temple of Time after the cut-scenes, and run to Hyrule Castle to
discover something horrible...it's now Ganon's Castle! Approach the lava,
and Rauru the Sage will speak to you, telling you that him and the other
Sages will create a rainbow bridge leading to his castle, and explain
to you that you must destroy each of the six "barriers" inside the six areas (one 
for each medallion), in order to access the center tower, where Ganon himself 
lies... Enter the castle, run past the Beamos, and enter the central area. Head 
left, and enter the first room. Enter this room, and find all 5 Silver Rupees. 
Collect them all (one of them is floating near a Hookshot target above a Beamos), 
and ente the newly unlocked door. In here, hit the crystal switch behind the bars, 
and then take the Bombchus from the chest. Now use a Bombchu to hit the other
crystal switch near the wall, then head through the next door. Now burn
away the cobwebs on the ceiling in here with a Fire Arrow, then use your
Mirror Shield on the light, and direct the light onto one of the Sun
paintings. Now find the spirit torch, and light it with a Light Arrow to
defeat this first room. Right off the bat, use Din's Fire to light all of the 
torches, then hit the torch near the door with a Fire Arrow to open the door. Enter 
it. In the next fan room, you must collect all 5 Silver Rupees in order to advance 
into the next door, so do so, while using the Hoverboots to get across the gaps, 
and the Iron Boots to avoid getting blown away by the fans. In the last room, 
simply shoot the Forest Torch with a Light Arrow to destroy the Forest Barrier.
In here, destroy all of the ice-enemies to open the next door, and use some
of the Blue Fire to melt the red ice blocking the door, then get some more
Blue Fire for the next room. Enter it, and find the block that is furthest
from the hole. Make your way by pushing the block to the wall with the
Red Ice. Now use the Blue Fire to melt the ice, and activate the floor
switch with your Megaton Hammer, enter the next room, hit the Water Torch
with a Light Arrow, then move onto the next room after this barrier has
been destroyed. Move to the left-ledge, and locate the Like Like (use the Hookshot 
target), and use the Like Like as a target, and hookshot your way to it, and kill 
it. Now put on the Hoverboots, and run off the ledge, float over to the next ledge, 
and climb up and use the Lens of Truth to see the "true" path to a rusted switch. 
Hit it with your Hammer, then turn around to see a different invisible path that 
leads to another switch, so use your Hoverboots and get to the switch. Hit the 
switch to get a chest with the Gold Gauntlets. Now enter the next room and shoot 
the Shadow Torch with your Light Arrow to destroy the Shadow Barrier. Here is 
another room where you have to find the 5 Silver Rupees. When you reach the large 
block, lift it up with the Gold Gauntlets to reveal a hidden Silver Rupee, then 
turn to the ledge with the torch slug, and use the Hoverboots to get to it, kill 
the slug, then look on the large block to find another Rupee. The others Rupees are 
easy to find, so locate them, then enter the unlocked door after you get them all, 
light the Fire Torch with a Light Arrow, and destroy the Fire Barrier. Lift up the 
large block ahead of you, and move it out of your way. Now use your Lens of Truth, 
and kill the enemies in here to reveal a hidden chest, and take the small key from 
the chest. Locate the Triforce symbol and play Zelda's Lullaby to reveal another 
chest with a small key, then exit the room. Now you have only 1 minute (60 seconds) 
to get all 5 Silver Rupees in here, but 4 of them are easy to find, just search the 
alcoves and the center area to find them. The last one can only be accessed with 
your Longshot, so longshot your way to the target and take the last one. Now enter 
the next door, use your Lens of Truth to see the real route to the last room, shoot 
the Light Torch with a Light Arrow, and destroy the last barrier, the Light 
Barrier. Enter the center tower, and kill the batch of crows, then the set of 
Dinolfos Fight them the same way as you did the Lizolfos in Dondogo's Cavern, then
enter the next door that unlocks, and up the stairs. Kill the next set of Stalfos 
to get the Boss Key that allows you to access the Boss Area (see: Ganondorf!), then 
go up the next set of stairs to fight some Iron Knuckles. Kill them, and run up the 
last set of stairs, and enter the boss door to meet Ganondorf...
This is probably the hardest fight of the entire game, because Ganondorf has
so many attacks, and will take so much damage. To begin with, immediately
run to a corner of the room, and face Ganondorf with your Master Sword
ready. Remember the Phantom Ganondorf fight earlier on? Good, because
you'll have to use the same strategy as you did before in this fight. When
he shoots fireballs at you, hit them back at him with your sword. This
isn't as easy as it seems, but you'll get the hang of it. After you hit
him with his own fireball, he'll be stunned, so run to the center platform
where he lies, and strike him with your Bigoron's Sword if you have it,
or your Master Sword if you do not, and slash at him until he gets back
up. He'll continue this attack for a while, so continue this method of
attack until he changes his attack to something different. Eventually, he'll start 
to build up magic power, then shoot it at you. To combat this, have some Light 
Arrows ready, and before he shoots the large ball of energy at you, hit him with a 
Light Arrow, and when he's stunned, run to him, and attack. Repeat this over and 
over until Ganondorf goes down...  But wait! He's not dead yet! He attempts to 
crush you and Zelda before he dies by collapsing the castle! You now only have 3 
minutes to exit the castle, so just follow Princess Zelda down through the rooms, 
until she gets trapped in one of the rooms by some Fire, and you'll have
to fight 2 Stalfos to free her. Kill them and free her, then continue
to follow her out of the castle, and to fight the REAL final boss...
For this battle, your Master Sword cannot be used, because it has been
knocked away by Ganon himself, so you must rely on your Megaton Hammer or
your Biggoron's Sword if you have it. Circle around Ganon until you
reach his tail, then smack it around with your weapon about 6 times over,
until he falls over, then attack his head, and eventually, you will
be able to get your Master Sword back, so do it. Take it back, then
head to Ganon again to finish the fight. Now, take out some Light Arrows,
and aim for his head, and when you get a decent shot off, and he's stunned,
run behind him, and strike his tail. Repeat this over and over until
he goes down, then when Zelda tells you to "use your sword and deliver
the final blow", do so with your Master Sword while she holds him down
with her magic power, and strike his head to watch the ending sequence
once and for all!
Congradulations! You have now beaten the game! If you want, you can do some side 
quests if you have any left.
