BIG NOTE: This walkthrough will only cover important and story-specific
stuff. If you want the side-questy
stuff, you'll have to find a different walkthrough.
4A. Outset from Outset (Outset Island and Forsaken
Outset Island -
the recap at the opening, you'll find we begin with Link
asleep (seems to be a pattern in Zelda games). Little sis
Aryll wakes him
up and tells him that Grandma is looking for him.
You can explore Outset Island for a bit and talk
to various people. Poke
around in some houses if you wish or in the field, as there are Rupees to be
If you wish, grab three pigs and carry them up to the pen for more
Rupees (to grab them, crawl up to them slowly, then
stand up and pick them
up). Now, to spend some of your new-found Rupees. Head to the shore. Note
weird-looking ship in the water. Swim inside. This is Beedle's Shop
Ship. Something you should really
get your hands on in there is a BAIT BAG.
Also, buy a serving of All-Purpose Bait and a Hyoi Pear.
you're done goofing around, go and talk to Grandma and she'll give you
the outfit all boys your age receive when they
come of age. After you're done
your little chat, head out. If you haven't already, go to the two floor
and speak to each of the brothers. One has several tips for the game
on the walls, and the other will teach you
basic sword practice.
Now, go and speak to Aryll and she'll give you the TELESCOPE as your birthday
Use it as she instructs and you'll see a postman dropping letters
off at the postbox. Then, she'll instruct you
to look up, so do so, and
you'll see a real big bird carrying a girl in its claws. The two are being
by a ship firing cannon shot. The bird takes a hit and ends up
dropping the girl in the nearby mountain summit.
Being the helpful type you
are, you'll want to go and see what the commotion is about. Aryll will
to Orca the trainer, and he'll teach you all the sword techniques you'll
need for now. Once that's done, he'll let
you keep the HERO SWORD, feeling
you've earned it. Now, you can fool around chopping grass, small trees, and
or you head up the mountain path on the left side of the island.
Climb up, chopping down anything in your way, then
hop across the gap in the
suspension bridge, and head into the Faerie Forest.
Fairy Forest -
This is rather
basic. Head straight through the brush and circle around the
back. Note the weird-looking rock sitting in
this area. Anyway, you'll also
want to note the Bokoblin opposite you. Show him you've been practicing your
sword skills. Once he's kaput, climb up the stump to the higher ground and
you'll eventually reach the girl,
who turns out to be the leader of a group of
pirates. Her name is Tetra, and she doesn't seem to think much of you.
one of her cronies will show up to escort the both of you out. As you
leave, you'll find Aryll on the opposite side
of the bridge waiting for you.
Then, things get pear-shaped. Aryll gets carted off by that big bird thing.
You and the pirates regroup down by their ship and you'll meet that weird
postman you saw earlier. He'll explain
that several girls with pointed ears
have been kidnapped recently, and that it would behoove you to head to the
Fortress to find your sister, and Tetra will begrudgingly agree to
take you on as a swabbie...
You need to say
goodbye to Grandma now. Head up the ladder to find the family
shield is missing. Head back down and you'll
say your farewells to Grandma
and she'll give you the HERO SHIELD. Now, talk to Tetra to get movin'.
So, you can converse with the scurvy dogs, but to get ahead, head below decks
and speak with Niko, who's
quite relieved to no longer be the bottom of the
pirate food chain. Niko will present you with a little challenge.
basic gist: Step on the switch and some platforms will pop up. You have to
swing from rope to platform
and so on to reach the other side. Use this time
to get a feel of ropes. The platforms aren't very big, so
make sure you're
facing the proper direction, and press A to let go at the height of your
swing, NOT at the bottom,
because if you do, your momentum will carry you over
Once you make it to the other side, Niko will
let you have the SPOILS BAG.
Nifty. Now, head back above deck and speak to Tetra, who's in the crow's
She'll point out Forsaken Fortress, and you'll be just about on your
way there, in a rather unorthodox manner...
You'll find yourself smack in the middle of the fortress. You'll soon find
that Tetra can speak
to you through a charm you're now carrying. This area
isn't a true "dungeon" of sorts, but there is a Map and Compass
to find, as
well as a Piece of Heart...
Oh, and you lost your sword. Smooth...
So, I can't really
give a standard "walkthrough" of this area, because it's
quite open-ended. You can get around in several ways.
I will, however, lay
down some key points.
Here's the lowdown. You'll notice outside are several searchlights
around. Avoid those if you don't want to be thrown in a cell. Those are the
only problems outside,
except for the problems of actually getting around and
Inside, things are a little more complicated.
There are two basic floors to
this area. The lower floor has multiple Moblins patrolling. Unfortunately,
a sword, you cannot fight these guys at all. If they see you, they'll
toss you in the cell. To avoid them,
pick up a barrel and you'll drop it over
yourself. Move slowly behind the patrolling Moblins to get past them.
they "notice" a moving barrel, stop moving immediately and they'll soon lose
Now, in the odd chance
you get thrown behind bars, it's not hard to get out,
just a bit time-consuming. Climb up on the table and hop onto
Pick up the pot to reveal a little passage. Crawl into it (use R to crouch)
and pop out the
Now, there is a Map and a Compass on the upper floor in the two sections in
the southeast. They're
not terribly important, but there they are.
What IS rather important is the PIECE OF HEART. It's in the southwestern
room on the first floor, which is just below the room with your cell. If you
get there, you'll have to sneak
behind Moblins to get out. The room has a
cell, which you can open by a nearby switch hidden behind some pots.
find the PoH in the chest inside.
Now, about those searchlights. Making your way around the upper
can find ladders that lead up to the three searchlight stations in three
locations, which are the southernmost
outside path, then the ones directly
east and west of them. Although you have no weapon, you can take out the
With no sword, you'll need to use their own weapons against them.
Either block their attacks until you knock the
weapon out of their hands, or
toss and break the nearby pot. Either way, press A to grab a Boko Stick
Pretty cheap model, really. Use B to swing and A to toss it. Knock
out the bad guy to stop the searchlight
for good. The one you really want to
stop you can only access from the west side, because it turns off the
which looks at the upper ledges. The others just monitor the
Anyway, another key point to remember
is on the north side. You'll find a box
sitting on an upper ledge. Push it down to the plaza and you have
a quick way
up to the upper floor. Handy.
The big important room is to the west of the aforementioned box.
Moblins wandering around on the upper floor here. Now you know it's
important. Get in a barrel
and sneak over to the far double door. Open it
up to get on the upper ledges. Sneak past the Moblin up here
climbing. You'll eventually reach an area with a largely missing floor.
To get across the
broken floor, you have to push yourself up against the wall
and press to sidle along it. Once you reach the end,
keep moving up the wall,
sidling a little more, and you'll finally reach the top, where you'll find
your sword (go
you), as well as a peeved Bokoblin. Teach him the meaning of
pain and you'll be able to enter the room where Aryll
is kept captive, along
with several other girls...
Of course, things won't go as planned, thanks, once again, to
the big bird.
He'll take you before a large and mysterious-looking man. This man will point
out to sea,
and the bird will give you a nice toss. As you lie on the open
sea, you'll be picked up by a strange boat...
4B. Setting Sail (Windfall Island and Dragon Roost Island) =
eventually regain consciousness, and you'll find that it's the boat
itself that saved you. It calls itself the King
of Red Lions, and it offers
its services to you. Unfortunately, it doesn't have a sail, so you'll need to
one on the island.
Windfall Island -
This island has quite a few people on it, and several shops, too.
Bomb Shop near the water, but the prices are rather outrageous. Go into the
town itself and you'll
find several buildings. There's a potion shop that you
can't buy anything from because you don't have a bottle.
Bummer. There's a
rather extravagant-looking red door which leads to a fancy house, where some
guy will get
very huffy if you bust his vases. There's also a cafe, where you
can get a bit of info. There's a school,
where the teacher wants you to go
find a group of kids who goof off. There's also a peddler who has your
sail for sale! Only 80 Rupees! If you don't have enough, poke
around for pots hiding in bushes to find more
Rupees. Buy the SAIL.
Now, you could set sail, but there's one more thing to do here (or two). Go
the south side of the island. There's a little path near the beach
leading up to a gravestone. Sure, you can
talk to Tott, who's hanging out
there. You can also go into a nearby door. You'll find the jail, and who
be inside, but good ol' Tingle. Find the switch to open the door behind
some pots and he'll be so glad he's out
that he'll give you the TINGLE TUNER.
Check his section to find out what to do with Tingle.
But wait, there's
more! Pull the box in the back of Tingle's cell. Enter
the narrow passage. Ready? Turn right,
left, go straight to the far wall,
right, left, left, right, right, right. You'll end up in a grotto with the
BOX in it. There's a big sidequest involving the Picto Box, so head to
the section in "Sea-Wide Sidequests" for
There's more stuff to do on Windfall, and if you want to learn about it, go
to Windfall Island's
section in "The Islands of the Great Sea".
You're all set here for now. Go back to your boat and you'll set sail
Dragon Roost Island. Set up your sail using the item button and just point
yourself in the direction of
the island (east), and get movin'! Wheeee!
On the way, you may find some stopping points, with barrels and such,
Bokoblins. They're not big cash spots, so don't go nuts looking for them.
Once you're about halfway
there, veer south towards a island dotted with palm
trees. You'll notice another boat here. Talk to the divers,
and you'll get
yourself a TREASURE CHART.
Once you sail far enough east, you'll reach the shores of Dragon Roost.
Roost Island -
Land and the King of Red Lions will give you "THE WIND WAKER", a baton which
gives one the power
of the gods, or so they say. You'll practice with it for
a bit, then you can head inland. Head through the
tunnel near the beach and
you'll see a monument out in the distance. Swim out to it and you'll see a
writing. Oooo... Pull out your Wind Waker in front of the stone
and you'll pull up your first tune.
Once you finish, the Wind God, Zephos,
will have a bit of chat with you. He'll tell you about his brother Cyclos,
and how the smashed stone was once his. You now know the Wind Requiem, which
you can use to change the wind's
If you neglected to buy a Bait Bag on Outset, Beedle's Shop Ship is here.
He also shows up in
many other places, too...
Note the large number of Bomb Flowers dotting the landscape. How curious.
this opportunity to be a demolitionist and clear out some of those pesky
big rocks by throwing Bomb Flowers at them.
Climb up the hillside and find a
ledge that you can sidle across. Bust up a rock that has blocks sitting on
of it so they'll fill the gap and you'll be able to proceed through
another cave after speaking with the postman from
Now, you'll find that you've entered the realm of the Rito bird people. These
folks specialize in
flying and delivery. They even have a post office right
in their cave. But first, you'll talk to their chieftain,
in the middle of
the room, who tells you about two problems: the dragon Valoo becoming very
upset recently, and Prince
Komali, who is reluctant to perform his "rite of
passage" and get his wings. You'll also be given a DELIVERY BAG.
head up to the upper floor and enter the first room to speak with Medli,
and she'll give you the FATHER'S LETTER, which
will be put in your Delivery
BAG. Go visit the Prince now. He's on the first floor in the back. Give
Prince the Letter from your bag and he'll explain that he doesn't want to go
to the rite of passage. Talk
to him some more and he'll talk about his ball,
the Din's Pearl. There's nothing more you can do for him here, so
head back to
the main cave.
If you're strapped for Rupees, head up to the second floor and talk to the
at the post office desk. You can sort letters for him for Rupees. The
first time you do it, if you break 10
letters, you'll get a Rupee for every
two letters. The second time, if you pass 20 letters, you'll get a Rupee for
every letter. The third time, if you pass 25 letters, you'll get three Rupees
for every letter. It's fun,
and a good test of your reflexes.
So, now that all the extra stuff is done, head down to the lower floor, and
by the passage that the Rito guard is standing next to and you'll end
up in front of Dragon Roost Cavern. Drop down
the hole and talk to Medli and
she'll ask you to toss her up. Pick her up, climb on the nearby stone, and
until the wind is blowing towards the far end. Toss her then and she'll
give you your first EMPTY BOTTLE.
Fill it with water from the nearby spring,
then climb up the broken bridge and dump the water on the dried-up plants and
they'll grow into Bomb Flowers. Pluck one and wait until its about to explode
before tossing it on the big rock
below (you don't want it fizzing out in the
water). Once the rock blows up, the pond will fill up again and you
swim across. Now, there's a small pool of lava ahead of you. Pick the nearby
Bomb Flowers and toss
them into the green pots on the statues so that they
blow up on them. Once both statues are knocked into the lava,
cross them and
enter your first dungeon.
*** LEVEL 1 *** Dragon Roost Cavern -
Entrance Room: Pull the blue
statues out of the way to the next room. Defeat
the two Bokoblins. To leave the room, take one of their sticks,
light it on
the torch, if it's not already lit, and use it to light the other torches.
You'll earn a Small
Key and you can open the door. That pot with mist in the
room is a Magic Pot which you can use to warp once you
Lava Pit: Toss a rock at the boarded-up door, then head left. Drop off the
planks to a ledge, and
pull a block out. Climb on it, then continue on the
wood planks. Head across the suspension bridge and try
to ignore the Keeses,
because you're not exactly on stable ground. Toss a Bomb Flower at the rock
to the next room.
Watering Hole: To cross the little pit here, toss a water jar into the lava
to harden it.
Hop over to the left side to get the DUNGEON MAP. After that,
you can cross over to the far end. Climb up
the ladder and watch out for the
Red ChuChu. Defeat him and proceed up to the next room.
Boarded Room: Head
over to the far wall and defeat the Bokoblin. Use his
sword to start hacking down the boarded walls. Behind
the second wall,
you'll find a Small Key. Watch out for Red ChuChus. Exit by the other door.
Toss a pot at the Bomb Flowers on the wall to blow the rock, then
cross over to the locked door.
West Room 1F: Head
towards the boards on the left to fight a Bokoblin. Defeat
him, and use his stick to light the other boards on
fire. Step on the
switch and head through the door.
Western Cliff: Cross the suspension bridge and quickly deal
with the Bokoblin
so the bridge doesn't get cut. Climb the ladder and take out the Kargaroc to
get a Golden
Feather. Now, carefully sidle past the gap, avoiding the fire
jet. Next, hang onto the wooden ledge and edge
across it. Climb up the
rocks and toss the Bomb Flower up here on the big rock to open the way to the
Stacked Block Room: Pull on the middle block so that the stack drops, then
pull it left. Then, pull on
the middle block again so that the stack drops
once more. Climb up on the stacks to the doorway. Watch out
You'll get a call from the pirates, so answer it. Pull out the block and
hop up to the treasure
chest to get the COMPASS. Break the nearby pot with
sticks in it. Grab one, light it on the torch, and throw
it at the far
boards to burn them. Get the Small Key in the chest. Unlock the door and
Cliff: Climb the stairs. Take out the Karbaroo and take the Small
Key in its nest. Unlock the door.
Room: First, take out the Keeses a ways into the room. Then, smash one
of the pots with sticks. Light the
stick, then start lighting torches and
burning down boards. Once you light them all, the door at the far end will
open. Oh, and there's a Joy Pendant in a treasure chest nearby.
Lava Pit: You can bomb the rock off this pot.
Climb in and you'll warp back
to the green pot at the entrance. Cross the bridge to the next room.
Defeat the Bokoblin. Climb up to the wooden ledge. Get the
sticks from the pot up here and use them to light
the other torch and find a
TREASURE CHART. There's also a Joy Pendant in the pot on the shelf. Roll
into the wall to knock it down. To leave this room, you have to defeat two
more Bokoblins, and they're sleeping
in pots. One on a shelf on the lower
floor, and one in the series of pots on low table along the wall. Defeating
them will open the doors.
Magtail Room: That little worm across the way is the eponymous Magtail. Toss
a water jar at it to cause it to roll up in a ball. Hop across to the
platform and give it heck while it's curled
up. After it's toast, toss
another water jar onto the flame jet nearby. Hop onto the platform created
and you'll get carried up to the next floor.
Boss Door Room: Yeah, but it's across a big pool of lava, so you're not
getting there yet. Use the Bomb Flower to blow both rocks. One has another
Magic Pot, and the other has the
door to the next area.
Southern Cliff: You'll get a shot of Valoo from here, looking rather miffed.
the disentegrating steps along the outside and enter the door.
Defeat the two Bokoblins, and then the big Moblin
(which has your first
Skull Necklace), to free Medli. She'll give you the GRAPPLING HOOK as a
Use it as she describes to escape this cage area, then swing across
to the boards, which you can chop down with your
sword. Drop down back to the
entry point and face left to find more points where you can grapple. Cross
all these points and you'll reach the next door.
Bridge Room: Cross the bridge and defeat the two Bokoblin to make a chest
a Joy Pendant appear at the bottom of the room. To get to the bottom safely,
take the stick lying nearby,
light it, then burn all the ropes on the bridge.
Stand in the middle and you'll drop down to the path below.
Leave by the door
Lava Pit: We're back here again. Climb up the steps and into the cage. Stand
in the center and use a spin attack (charge up B) to cut all three ropes at
once so the platform drops onto the
lava below. Head through the passage and
jump across the platforms and climb up the ladder. To open this
up and find a hanging switch. Use your Hook to hang from it and the door will
open. Hop back
Lava Passage: If you have Tingle, use the Tingle Bomb on the far side of the
room to uncover the DRAGON
TINGLE STATUE. Latch to the hook above and grab
it, and then turn on the hook to drop to the other passage.
Cross to the
Big Key Room: There's a Magtail here, and no water. To stun it, it's best to
your Grappling Hook on its face just as its jaws open. It'll curl up and
you can pick it up and drop it on the
switch, which needs constant weight.
Open the chest and take the BIG KEY. Leave and head back to the Lava
You may want to go after the boss now, but let's take a little side trip,
first. From the first
floor Lava Pit area, go to the West Room 1F, which
had Red ChuChus and a Bokoblin.
West Room 1F: Take out the Bokoblin
and grab his stick again. Burn the stick,
and this time, throw it at the boards across the lava pit. Use
the Hook to
get across and take the TREASURE CHART. Now, make your way, using Magic Pots
back up to the Boss
Boss Door Room: Cross the room with the Hook, defeat the Magtail. Open the
chests to receive Rupees
and a Knight's Crest. Enter the Boss Door.
*GOHMA*: This is what's been giving Valoo such a pain the rear.
The Gohma can
attack you with its claws or with fire breath. You'd be wise to act before
he can unleash these
attacks. This fight takes place in two stages. In the
first stage, use your Hook to latch onto Valoo's tail.
Let go as soon as
you find safe ground. Valoo will knock down the ceiling onto Gohma, who's
armor will crack.
Do this three more times to completely destroy the armor.
At this point, just use the Hook on Gohma's eye (L-Target
it). Once he's
pulled to you, slash with the sword. Repeat until Gohma blows up.
Take the Heart Container
and step into the wind funnel. You'll find yourself
at the foot of the mountain. Medli and Komali will congratulate
Komali will give you Din's Pearl. Now, your destination is south. If you've
already earned the
Wind Requiem, use it to point the wind south, otherwise
head to the monument that the two Rito point out to get it.
your way out, you'll find a fish, and he'll offer to draw you a map of the
island on your chart, and he'll tell you about
his friends, too, who will do
the same. Just find them splashing near major islands and spread some All-
Bait in the area.
While we're in the area, let's head back to Windfall Island (use the Wind
Requiem to point west).
Once you're back there, show your Wind Waker to the
guy dancing out in front of the grave and he'll show you the Song
which you can use to change day into night into day. Sounds just like the
old Sun Song, too.
Also, you can return some Red Chu Jellies for a free Red
Potion, if you wish, but there's not much else to do.
you're up to it, head back to Dragon Roost Island and south to the Forest
Haven. On your way, it'd be a good idea
to mark Pawprint Island, which is
between Windfall and Dragon Roost, and the three islands between Dragon Roost
Forest Haven: Fire Mountain, East Triangle Island, and Bomb Island.
In the same square as Bomb Island, look for something
near the western part
of the square. It's a submarine. Destroy its occupants (mostly Bokoblins)
earn your second EMPTY BOTTLE.
4C. Familiar Forest
Faces (Forest Haven and Forbidden Woods) =
Haven Island -
Now, head south all the way and you'll find Forest Haven. The KoRL will
drop you off near
the shore. So, start climbing up the hillside. Take out
the Boku Babas and you'll earn some Boku Baba Seeds.
When you reach the end
of the path, use a branch to swing across, and make sure you land on solid
ground, as the water
will sweep you away. There are Octoroks up here, which
you can defeat by blocking their shots back at them.
Hop from land spot to
land spot to reach another branch. Swing across it to a pool and enter the
Head up and around the back of the massive tree in this area, and you'll find
that it's, in fact, the Deku
Tree, with a whole bunch of Chuchus on its face.
Take this opportunity to get some Green Chu Jelly. Roll into
the Deku Tree
to knock them off and clean house. You'll then have a long dialog with the
Deku Tree, which culminates
in the task to find Makar, a Korok, and with
retrieving a leaf from the Deku Tree's branches.
So, run around the
left side and hop into a Baba Bud. They send you flying.
Push forward to move forward as you fly. Hop
from one Bud to the next. After
the fourth bud, hop onto a set of upper branches. Use the Hook to hop to the
next set of Buds. Fly up to the DEKU LEAF and claim it for your own. Use it
to float across to where one
of the Koroks point you. Once you reach the
ledge, head out the door.
You'll need to point the wind
to the SW to coast over to the platform sticking
out of the water to the left. After that, point the wind to the
NW. To get
over to the Forbidden Woods, you'll have to get caught in the updraft circling
It's actually pretty far out, so coast out a good distance
before it gets between you and the Forbidden Woods, let it
catch you and float
towards the tree. Watch out for the Peahats and enter the dungeon.
*** LEVEL 2 *** Forbidden
Entry Room: Deal with all the Green ChuChus in the area. Head to the right
side of the room to take
the DUNGEON MAP. Head to the left side and grab
the Boko Nut. Toss it at the plant covering the door to destroy
Tendril Room: Down in the basement is a Knight's Crest. Bash up the Boku
to take their sticks, then throw them at the plant on the chest. To
get back out, and to the other side, you'll
need to use both the Baba Buds
and the Deku Leaf. As you get boosted up, float over to the next highest
Bud. Try to avoid the swinging tendrils so you don't get busted up.
Find a way to the highest point in the
northeast to find a Joy Pendant in a
pot. Note that there's a chest to the southwest. Unfortunately, you
nothing to remove the plant on it with. Head through the exit to the north.
Gondola Room: Flap the Deku
Leaf at the switch on your left to get the
gondola over to your side, then flap in the opposite direction to move it
back to the other side. Exit by the north door.
Buds'N'Gondola Room: Take out the Peahats by flapping at them
with the Leaf,
then slashing them, and take out the Boku Babas. One Baba leaves behind a
Bud. Hop in
and leap up next to the door. Alternatively, you can hop up to
a nearby hole in the tree for a chest with 20 Rupees.
Call the gondola with
the swtich and head over to the other side. Break the boards with your sword
the Boku Nut. DROP it on the Gondola (using R) and head back to the
other side. Toss the nut at the plant
on the door to get to the next room.
Surprise Room: Don't get too close to the Boku Nut, because tendrils burst
of the floor. Use the Deku Leaf to flap the Nut off its plant, then use
it on the plant on the door.
Room: Walk around the east side. Hook across the gap over the
tendril. Cross to the north side on the moving
vines. Take the Boku Nut
and walk over to the west door. Toss the Nut on the door to open it. Also,
keep climbing up using moving vines and you'll reach your second Magic
3F West Passage: There are Morths
across the gap in this room. Use Spin
Attacks to dust them off quickly. The chest below contains 10 Rupees.
Leave by the west exit.
Tendril Maze Room: As the name suggests, tendrils burst out of the ground to
form a psuedo-maze.
Make your way over to the left (south) side. Use the
Bomb Flower to blow both the nearby boards, and the one in
the far corner
(toss it over the tendrils). The chest next to you has the COMPASS. Make
your way around
the maze to the other corner to get a Small Key. You can
use the Baba Bud to get up to the platforms, one of which
has a Joy Pendant.
Leave this room and head back to the...
Korok House Room: Head to the north part and open
the locked door.
North Passage: Flap the Gondola over to your side, and cross. Avoid the
Peahat, as it'll be
tough to kill with water all over the floor.
Hanging Pod Room: Take out the Mothula, Peahat, and Boku Babas. You
the sticks to break up the hanging pods for some items. Use the Baba Bud to
float up one level of
trees, then another. There's a chest high above you.
To get there, use the Hook on the nearby stick, then
climb all the way up
the Hook and onto the stick. Hook to the next stick and drop onto the
Ride the moving vines up to the top and grab the Joy Pendant in
the chest. Watch out for Peahats, and leave by
the north door.
Mothula Room: Mini boss time in this room, in the form of a full-grown Mothula.
You can either
swat it with the sword when it gets low enough, or flap it
with the Leaf to stun it and then swat it. Each swat
removes one of its four
wings. Watch out for its diving attack and Morth deployment. When you clip
its wings, it switches to ground mode, where it's basically a normal
Mothula that can take quite a few more hits.
Eventually, it'll go down and
the north door will open. Open the chest and claim the BOOMERANG. Look
above the south door and target both switches. Toss it and the door will

You can follow it down, or
you can take this opportunity to go back to...
Tendril Room: The second room of the dungeon.
Float all the way up the chest
in the southwest corner. Boomerang the plant and take the TREASURE CHART.
House Room: Drop down into the basement. Enter the door down here.
Basement Passage: Boomerang the Peahat and the
Morths. Hop over to the right.

the flower's four strands

down the river. Use the Deku

Use your Shield to bounce back the Octorok attack and climb up
opposite side. Enter the door.
Big Key Room: Climb up the slope to the top. Use the Boomerang to
five switches. To do this, start with one of the switches next to the tree
and work your way around.
If you don't, you might not get them all. Get the

two Moblins. To

*KALLE DEMOS*: This mutated plant has Makar captive. It has two main
attacks, slamming its tendrils
on the ground and burrowing them under the
ground to come up and attack from underneath. What you need to do is
down all the tendrils attached the ceiling with the Boomerang. As you can
only target five at a time,
this isn't going to be easy. Keep targeting and
throwing the Rang. Once all tendrils are down, the plant

whack it repeatedly
nonstop and take some damage when the plant closes, or

Hit the central

The Great Deku Tree will
thank you for your efforts and give you Farore's
Pearl. You can now leave the Forest Haven island system.
4D. The Hero's Trial (The Last Pearl and the Tower of
the Gods) =
All righty! Now, nearly the
entirety of the Great Sea is open to you.
Hooray! You can take this time to explore EVERYWHERE and mark the
of the map using the fishees. Check Section 5: The Islands of the Great Sea,
to find out what you can
get at each of the islands. I won't bring up all
that stuff here...
However, I will mention stuff to get
on the sea that will be indispensible.
For instance, head to coordinates A3, the Northern Fairy Island. Speak
fairy and your wallet size will be increased so you can hold 1000 Rupees.
Next, go to coordinates G4 (yeah,
I know it's a long way). At the south end,
you'll see some seagulls in the middle of the water. Float towards
a Big Octo will leap out. To defeat it, target its eyes with the Boomerang.
Several hits on all
of them will remove the threat and release a Great Fairy
who will double your Magic Meter.
Also, look for some
wiggling postboxes. The first one you find will have a
PIECE OF HEART in it. Keep checking postboxes in other
locations, and you
may get more mail.
Okay, head for Greatfish Isle, where the King of Red Lions points you.
you get there, you'll find it's a complete mess. The water spirit, Jabun,
has fled from his home.
The Rito postman will come and explain about the
pirates that were here recently. You'll have to head back to Windfall
to find them.
Now, with the storminess that just set in, it'll be perpetually night until
you do something
about it. Sail back to Windfall Island you'll find Tetra's
ship has docked. The KoRL will suggest looking
for them quietly.
Windfall Island -
Get onshore. Notice that there's a light on in the Bomb Shop.
though. Sneak around the back by sidling along the wall and climbing up the
vines. Once you
enter the shop, you'll see Tetra and her crew stealing bombs
from the owner. Tetra will notice you, but won't say
anything. The crew
will take off, but not before you hear the password for sneaking into the

Hop on the ship and say the password for Niko.
Once you get into the hold,
he'll have another rope course for you. This one's tougher. Stepping on the
gives you roughly two minutes to make it to the other side. Make sure
you aim your jumps for the center of the swinging
ropes. In the case of the
moving ropes, it's advisable to wait until they stop moving to jump. It's
difficult, but that's about all the help I can give. Once you reach
the other side, Niko will let you take the BOMBS.
Tetra will tell you that
she's gonna head for the island the next morning. Fortunately, time's
stopped, so you
don't have to worry about that. Your mission is now to head
back to Outset Island so you can find Jabun, so set
Outset Island -
Have chats with everyone on the island. You'll notice that poor Grandma has
ill... If you want, you can train in combat with Orca. Getting lots of
hits will get you prizes, such as a
PIECE OF HEART.
Also, head up to the summit of the island. Turn the wind west, hop up on the
very top of
the broken bridge, and float over to the other side using the
Deku Leaf. Now, enter the Fairy Forest again.
Use a Bomb on the big rock
and drop into the Fairy Fountain. Speak to the Great Fairy to get the
upgrade, which can hold 5000 Rupees.
Also, grab a Fairy while you're here. Go to your house and give it to your
poor sick grandma. She'll be all cured and give you Elixir Soup, which is a
here, though, is to head around the back of the island. You'll
get swept up in a big whirlpool. Don't panic.
Take out your Bombs and you'll
pull out the ship's cannon. Start firing away at that big stone door. First,
bust up the top part, then the middle part, then the bottom part, and you'll
be able to enter.
Jabun and the
KoRL will chat for a bit, and then you'll get the Nayru's Pearl.
The KoRL will now tell you to place the pearls
on the Triangle Islands. There
are three of them, and their coordinates are marked on the Sea Chart. Go to
each island and walk up to the small statue there. Once all three are in
place, a big familiar shape will appear
in the sea and a really big tower will
rise up out of the sea. That's the Tower of the Gods, and you gotta go in.
I suggest a few things before heading in there. Obviously, you may want
to look for some more Pieces of Heart, but
there are a few real important

Use Bombs to
blow open their doors. At each of these locations, you'll find a Bomb

increase your stockpile to 60, then 99.
Go to Rock Spire Isle (C2) and you'll find a special Shop Ship. This

quite expensive, but worth

for some destiny-related action!
LEVEL 3 *** Tower of the Gods -
Key point about the Tower: There's a rising and falling tide throughout the
Every twenty seconds or so, the water changes levels, from high to
low. This will make for some tricky puzzling
and getting around.
Main Lobby: Drift the KoRL over to the southeast corner, and hop off near the
When the tide's up, swim under the canopy and head
through the door.
SE Room 1F: Take out the Yellow ChuChu using
the Boomerang to stun it. There
are three bombable walls here on the high wall. When the tide rises, climb
up to the middle walls and drop Bombs next to the cracked walls. One has the
DUNGEON MAP behind it.
Getting the third wall's a bit trickier. When the
tide's down, push a box near (but not quite next to) the wall
and let the
tide rise up. Toss a Bomb just as it's about to explode at the wall and you
can get the Joy Pendant
Main Lobby: Go to the west side of the room and fire Bombs at the wall. Cross
the wall when the tide's
up. Break open the pot of sticks and light one.
Wait until the tide goes down and light the two torches by
the lower door.
This makes a chest with a Joy Pendant appear. Now, head through the
Room 1F: Defeat the Red Bubble by fanning it with the Deku Leaf, then
slashing it. Take the COMPASS.
Now, head to the northeast corner of the lobby. Climb up to
the platform and place either a pot or a statue on
the lit button to enter
the next room.
NE Room 1F: Wait until the tide is low and drop down to the pit. Pick
the box and drop it on the button. Ride the tide up and climb out. While
the tide's low and the box
is on the button, there's a light bridge. Cross
and pick up the statue. Cross the bridge back and exit the
Main Lobby: Place the statue on the cross indent outside and the gate nearby
will open. Ride the KoRL
through the gate and to the door. Place both
statues on both buttons.
SE Room 1F: Wait unti lthe tide lowers
and drop down to the floor. Push one
of the blocks so that it fits in the line with the others all the way to the
unlit torches. Now, climb up, break the pot with the sticks, light one, and
hop across as the tide goes up.
Light both torches and you'll get a Small
Key. Avoid the Yellow ChuChus on your way out.
Main Lobby: Head for
the southwest corner of the lobby and unlock the door.
SW Room 1F: Take out all Yellow ChuChus in this room to make a staircase
appear. Walk up and pick up the statue. Leave the room with it in tow.
Main Lobby: Walk up the stairs
to the indent and place the statue. The water
will now recede and you can go through the door in the center.
Room 1F: There's a Beamos in the center of this room. For now, avoid
its roving eye so you don't get zapped.
Carry each of the statues on this
side across to the buttons on the far side. Once both are placed, the
start moving. Jump from one to the next. Once you reach the
top, if you have Tingle, make him bomb the platform
behind you and you can
get the GODDESS TINGLE STATUE. Head through the north door.
2F Lobby: Not much to do
here except head east.
East Passage 2F: Mind the Yellow ChuChus. Hop onto the moving platform and
Statue Room: Climb the staircase and drop off the other side. Read the
little message. Press R to call the
statue. It will follow you close
behind. Lead him around the twisty path. When you reach the end, pick
up and jump the gap.
East Passage 2F: Continue carrying the statue across the moving platform.
2F Lobby: The
statue will hop over to a platform of its own accord. Climb
the steps to the center dais and pull out your Wind

Play the Command Melody and the answer
will become clear. Hop the statue
across the bridge, then break control (R Button) and swing across yourself.
Pick up the statue and head through the door.
West Passage 2F: Drop the statue on the button. Either use the
or the Deku Leaf to swing across to the right side (south room).
Darknut Room: Aw yeah! Time
for some smackdown! The way to beat Darknuts is
to use the Parry counter move just as it's about to swing.
That way, you'll
knock off its armor. Once it's off, it's best to keep Parrying, because
Darknuts are quite
good combatants otherwise. Once it's dead, open the
treasure chest and claim the HERO'S BOW. Leave the room.
Passage 2F: Shoot the eye across the way to start some platforms. Get
rid of the Red Bubbles again. Use the
Deku Leaf to get back over to where
you left the statue. Hop across the platforms with it.
2F Lobby: The statue
will return to its pedestal and open the gate to the
north. Before we do that, though, let's go back to.
Passage 2F: Take out the Red Wizzrobe with arrows, then hop on the
platform. Shoot the eye and ride the new platform
up to the next room.
Armos Knight Room: To beat an Armos Knight, shoot an arrow in its eye, then
drop a Bomb in its
mouth. Watch out for the results. Beat both and you'll
find a Joy Pendant here. Now, head back to the
2F Lobby, then to the Main
Main Lobby: Head to the northwest room.
NW Room 1F: Shoot the eye on the wall
and collect the TREASURE CHART. Now,
head back to the second floor.
2F Lobby: Leave by the north door.
Room 2F: Take out the Keeses near the platforms if you wish. Jump on
the left platform to drop down to the water.
Pull out a Bomb and toss it at
the wall just as it's about to explode. Head through the door.
Wind Room 2F:
Play the Wind's Requiem on the platform. Take out the two
Armos Knights and open the chest to get a TREASURE CHART.
Room 2F: Head through the door to the east.
Big Pit Room: There are several moving platforms here. Jump on the one
before you, then on the one across from that. Shoot an arrow at the eye
nearby to start that platform moving,
and hop on. Ride up and take the

of the room.
2F: To cross to the north side of this room, take two of the
statues and toss them one of the platforms. Hop onto
the other one yourself,
and unlock the door at the end.
North Statue Room: Nasty laser beams. First, hop on
top of the block. Jump
and float over the beams using your Deku Leaf. Call the statue with the R

on the button (he can hop right through the beams).
Once through, pick him
up and leave.
North Room 2F: Toss your statue on one of the platforms. Now, hop over
the other side. Grab three of the statues and toss them on the other
platform to raise it up and keep it
raised while you go jump back and grab
the blue statue. Carry it to the next room.
2F Lobby: The statue will
hop to its pedestal and the three will activate a
beam of light. Not scared, are ya? Hop in.
Room: Now, you have to grab pots sitting next to the Beamos'. Get
close and quickly fire an arrow at the Beamos
as soon as it starts firing
it laser to defeat it. Once the three are in place on the buttons, take the
KEY. Now, shoot the Armoses in the eye with arrows and slash their bums
to baleet them. Pass through the
door to the north.
Outer Terrace: Destroy both the Beamos' and Kargarocs with arrows, and make
your way to the Boss

will attempt to interfere with your
life with punches, swipes, and grabs.
The head will breathe a series of fireballs at you which you should roll

You're now in a very monochrome castle... Enter, and you'll see the forms of
many Moblins and Darknuts

of that familiar-looking fellow, the KoRL will call you through
and tell you about the seal on the special item you need to find. To solve
this puzzle, walk in front
of the statue. See those blocks? You need to

To move the blocks,
you need to pull and push them by their corners so they rotate. Once all three

with water. Now, it's a race to the top.
Run up the ramps quickly. Don't
stop to fight any Bokoblins. Often, the bird will peck away at a ledge to
remove it, but you're usually far enough across that you can jump the last
few feet. If you do miss, there are
grappling points around most of these to
get you across. Once you make it to the top, the bird will slam its head

point, whack him with the Hammer.

his head-covering. He has other attack besides the peck. Sometimes
dive and rake his talons across the floor of the tower, and sometimes he'll
attempt to flap you into the spikes

you FIRE ARROWS and ICE ARROWS.
Now, we'll go to four locations, which can be done in any order...
Ring Isle (F5) -
Aim a Fire Arrow at the ice-breathing dragon statue on the top to shut down
the island for five
minutes. On the east side of the island is a TREASURE
CHART if you're interested. Disembark on the west side
of the island and
climb up to the upper ice ring. Watch your step here. Make your way counter-
around the island until you reach some floating platforms. Hop
onto the first one, then onto the moving one, then
hop off onto the last
one, then to the dragon mouth. Enter.
In this cave, make your way across the narrow
ice slides. Watch out for
Keeses, and follow the path all the way around to the chest. Open it to
the IRON BOOTS. The island's now permanently "off". Put the Boots
on and walk past the wind blast to the exit.
If you fall, use the Grappling Hook on the two pegs to climb up (climb
to the top of the hook to get on them).
Mountain (C6) -
Aim an Ice Arrow at the flaming fire coming out the mountain to freeze it for
From the north side, start climbing the mountain. There's a
point about halfway up where the path splits.
Take the right path and keep
climbing. Eventually, you'll reach a jump you can only make with the Deku
(and favorable winds). You'll soon be at the summit.
Inside the mountain, you'll find Fire Keeses and Magtails.
Hop across all
the platforms quickly so they don't sink. Destroy all the enemies to make a

leave the mountain.
Western and Thorned Fairy Islands
(C1, D7) -
Both of these Fairy Islands have Arrow upgrades for you. Land on them and
use the Skull Hammer
to remove the obstacles in the way and enter for your
Power of the Stone (Earth Temple =
All right. Now that we're decked
out with awesome stuff, let's go east from
Outset Island to Headstone Island. Enter on the south side and lift up
rock head. Enter. You'll see some marks on the stone. Play those marks
with the Wind Waker (hold
the Control Stick to the right for 6/4 time).
You've now learned the EARTH GOD'S LYRIC. Suddenly, a ghost
appears, a Zora
Sage named Laruto. She tells you that Ganondorf destroyed the sages upon
his return, and that
another must be found to take the reins of Sage of Earth.
You need to find the person who plays the harp.
If you've been paying
attention, that's young Medli of the Rito people.
Go to Dragon Roost Island and find Medli.
She's outside on the cliffs high
up. Enter the post office and leave by the second floor exit. To the right,
hook over to where she's playing. Play the Earth God's Lyric for her and
she'll remember. Head back to
Headstone Island. Play the Earth God's Lyric
once more in front of the stone and Medli will play along. The
door to the
Earth Temple will open.
*** LEVEL 4 *** The Earth Temple -
Controlling Medli - If you pick up
Medli and throw her, she'll fly a short
distance. If you pick her up and jump with her, she'll carry you (farther
as she gets deeper into the dungeon). Use the Command Melody to take
control of her. While in control
of her, press A to start flying (a little
meter will tell you how much you can do it). If standing under a beam
light, press A and she'll use her harp, which can reflect. You can even
break control while holding the
harp and it will stay in its current
position. Otherwise, Medli cannot defend herself. If you lose her somehow,
she'll end up in a cage in the statue room on the first floor, which she can
just fly out of.
Pick up Medli and jump across the gap. Pick her up again and
carry her through the door (you must carry her through
doors). NOTE: If
you leave Medli in another room, you can still get across this with the

harmed by any of your weapons. Lure them
into the beam of light and they'll
turn into stone and you can throw them. Now, take control of Medli and put
her in the beam of light. Press A and she'll pull out her shiny harp. Use
it to reflect on the invisible
chest and you can get the DUNGEON MAP. Also,
use a Bomb on the Magic Pot nearby to open it. Leave by the
Grinning Statue Room: The gas down below will jinx you if you enter it (you
can walk, but can't use any
items). To get rid of its effects, get some
light on you. There's a hammer switch down there. Put Medli
in the light
and have her point her harp at the switch. Return to Link while still
pointing the harp and hit
the switch. Leave by the south door.
South Room 1F: Take out the two Red Bubbles here. Climb up the ladder
left and pull the block to expose a light shaft. Have Medli light up the
chest and take the Small Key.
Watch out for the Floor Masters and return
Grinning Statue Room: Unlock the north door.
North Room 1F: Use
a Fire Arrow on the tapestry to your left that has light
shining through. Defeat all the regular ChuChus and lure
the Dark ChuChus
to the light beam. Once they become stone, place them on the buttons.
Climb the newly-formed
stairs with Medli, then push the large block off the
ledge to open the door.
Northeast Room 1F: First, push the only
movable block onto the marking to
open a light. Now, take Medli and have her shine light on all the markings
on the walls, and the statue on the other block. This breaks them all down
and you can access two more blocks and
another Magic Pot. Push the other
two blocks onto their markings to get the COMPASS. Throw Medli up on the

Stalfos Room 1F: You are challenged by a Stalfos.
Defeat him to face two
others at once. Take them out and you'll get the MIRROR SHIELD. Now, pull
your sword so you're holding your shield. Use it to light up the sun
above the door to open it.

Misty Room B1:
Don't drop down, because there's lots of jinxing mist down
there, as well as two Floor Masters. To take out the
Blue Bubbles, fan
them with the Deku Leaf, then whack them. If you have Tingle, have Medli
fly you over to
the hanging platform, then jump to the end. Have Tingle
bomb the area with skulls and pots. Take the EARTH
TINGLE STATUE. Now,
take Medli to the monument and play the Earth God's Lyric with her nearby
and she'll open
the monument. Head through the door.

Use the light on the statue on the block, then on the two mirrors to get rid
of the bigger statues. Take the
Floor Master Room B1: Okay, walk across the mist on the floor, trying to
avoid the many Floor Masters.
If you reach the far end, you'll find a Small
Key, and the mist will disappear. Defeat all the Floor Masters in
and you'll get a TREASURE CHART.
Crossroads Room B1: Take the east door with Medli.

two ReDeads, and a Stalfos. Take all the bad guys out, and take the 20
Rupees in the chest if
you wish, and play the Earth God's Lyric to open
Boss Door Room: Take Medli down the stairs to the door
Big Mirror Room B2: Control Medli and fly her to the button. It drops a ray
of light. Have
Link move the mirror statue near it. Now, stand on the
pedestal it shines on and remove the statue nearby.
Pull out that mirror
statue. Now, have Medli stand on the pedestal and shine her light in a
direction, onto the small pedestal with the harp marking.
Stand Link on that and burn down the markings to get
another Mirror Statue.
Pull that out and you'll get the "chime". Also, shine light on the
chest for 50 Rupees. Now, go to the southwest corner of the
room and pull that mirror statue. Get on the
pedestal and shine light on
both the statue and the chest. Open the chest for a Joy Pendant. Now,

pedestal and have her shine her harp on the
harp pedestal. Put Link on it
and have him take down the four markings on the northwest wall, and one on
west wall. Pull out the last mirror statue and you'll get a "chime"
again. Head through the west door you
Coffin Room B2: Shine light on the coffins to release Stalfoses. You can
fight them one at a
time, or all at once if you're feeling daring. Take
them all out and take the TREASURE CHART that appears.
Mirror Room B2: Have Medli stand on one of the pedestals near the statue
and shine light on it, then have Link do the
same on the other one. Once
it opens, proceed through (you don't need Medli).
Big Key Room: First, take out
the Blue Bubbles hidden nearby so they don't
curse you (use the Deku Leaf to put them out). Now, take out the Darknut
and you can take the BIG KEY. Head all the way back to...
Boss Door Room: You don't need Medli, so just leave
her. Climb up to top of

at the shore and put on the Iron Boots. Trudge up to the statue shooting out
and bash it with the Hammer. Enter.
Note the marks on the stone. Play those marks on the Wind Waker (hold

of a Kokiri sage, will tell you to find the sage that
plays the same instrument as him. A leaf cello/violin?
That would be Makar,
the Korok from Forest Haven. Head back there.

can do these in either order, you have
to do the Earth Temple first. The new Wind Sage cannot be found until then.
the Forest Haven, you should see notes coming out of a waterfall. Attach
the Grappling Hook to the branch above
and swing towards that waterfall.
Let go and you'll fly through it and find Makar. Play the Wind God's Aria
for him and he'll remember. It's time to sail to the Wind Temple.
Head back to Gale Isle. Enter and
play the Wind God's Aria for Makar.

he does so, he'll be captured by Floor Masters
(jerks). If you have Tingle,
drop down to the lowest floor and use a Tingle Bomb in the center of the
ground to get the WIND TINGLE STATUE. Leave by the east door.
Central Gate Room: You'll see Makar behind a cage.
Poor little guy. There's
nothing you can do for him right now, so head east and take out the Armos
and Peahats, then go through the door.
Gate Corridor 1F: Take out the two Peahats, then either drop down the hole in
the floor, or just use the Iron Boots on the other one to crash through.
Flap the switch to raise the gate, then
head to the other side and flap it
back down. Leap off the spring with the Boots and land on the upper ledge.
Flap the gate back up using the switch up here. Take the Joy Pendant in
the chest nearby. Head out by
the south door.

Hit it and the
gate on the wall will fall. Cross over to it. Now, use the
updrafts to make your way further south to a chest
with the DUNGEON MAP in
it. Now, ride the updrafts to the west all the way, watching out for
Peahats and Red
Wizzrobes, and you'll reach the far door.
Central Gate Room: Use the Iron Boots to slam on the switch, which will open
up the gate to the basement. While you're up here, toss a Bomb on the Magic
Pot to open it. Drop down
to the basement and exit by the south door.

Push the spring block to the mark at the far end of the room, and the other
block next to it. Spring up to
the upper floor and grab the Small Key.
Don't leave just yet. Now, go back down to the lower floor through

Floor Masters, Armoses,
Red and Green ChuChus. Once all five holes have
been made, a chest with a TREASURE CHART will appear.
Gate Room: Unlock the north door.
Wizzrobe Room: You've got a nasty Wizzrobe battle here. This Wizzrobe can
summon enemies, in addition to the usual fireball attacks. Just take him
out like any other Wizzrobe, slash or
arrow, and you'll receive the
HOOKSHOT. Use it on the north wall and use the Hammer on the peg up here.
Exit the room.
Central Gate Room: Use the Hookshot to start climbing out the pit. About

Boss Door Room: There are three blocks here, and you need them to prevent
for getting sliced. Put your Iron Boots on so you can stand against
the wind. Push the first block so that
it blocks the first blade, then
likewise for the second. The third block will be dropped into a little
before it can get to the third blade, so go back and get the second
block, and pull/push it over the third block and

blade. Now you're across. To get Makar across, have him fly up as high as
over the wind gusts, and all the way to the end in the center, and
he'll drop right onto the threshold and not get blown
back. Take him to the
stone and play the Wind God's Aria and you'll be able to access the last

the tongue repeatedly. When
he pulls back, he'll spit out some young. You can slash them, or tug on
them with the Hookshot to stun them, and then slash them. Continue hooking

well and good, but then you need to bring them

lower position to get
the second gondola over. Float over to it and move the gondola. Float over
the lower moving vine, then jump to the upper one, then over to the
ledge and enter the door. Defeat Kalle Demos
Northeast Path: Enter the northeast door. You have a gauntlet of coffins
before you. Two have
ReDeads and two have Red Bubbles. In the next
gauntlet, there are four Dark ChuChus and two Poes. You need
to freeze one
of the Dark ChuChus with light and drop him on the button to keep the stairs
down on the other end.
Head up to the next gauntlet. There are six Dark
ChuChus and a Stalfos at the end. Take out the Stalfos,
then use the
light beam next to these stairs to freeze a Dark ChuChu. Carry him all the
way back to the switch
at the beginning and drop him there, then run like
mad back to the staircase to enter the door. Defeat Jalhalla
NOTE: An easier way to weigh down the switches is with the pots at the
beginning of the area.
Path: Enter the southeast door. There's a Wizzrobe here that
will make life annoying for you if you give him the
chance, so take him
out with whatever you wish to use. Hop on the spring and spring off it
using your Iron
Boots, and float past the spikes. Spring off the next

You will enter a watery room, and will find Zelda on
a bed, and Ganondorf
next to her. He will spin a rather believable tale about what really
happened to Hyrule.
He'll turn into (can you believe it) a giant blue pig

strings! For his first form,
use the Boomerang to cut down the five blue strings supporting him. The
one to get is the tail, which stinks because that's the one you want.
Shoot his glowing blue tail with a Light Arrow
whenever you get an opening.
Hit it with three and it'll be down.
*PUPPET GANON: SPIDER* - Now he's a spider
thing. You, again, have to hit
him in the shining blue tail. This form's probably the easiest. The trick
is to pan the camera up as high as possible, which will allow you to see his
reflection from the ceiling. When
he drops down, he'll release Keeses, but
if you've been watching, you'd know to go over to where his tail is and to
it with a Light Arrow. Three arrows beat this form.
*PUPPET GANON: SNAKE* - Form #3 is arguably the most difficult.
around very fast and drop Morths, which you can use for powerups. Hitting
it with the sword or
a Light Arrow in the face will stun it, but only very
briefly. There are two good ways to stun it. One way
is to use a simple Spin
Attack, which will freeze it for a good three seconds. Also, try blasting a
its face. At that opening, fire a Light Arrow to the tail. Also,
it's harder, but where the head goes, the
tail must follow, so just aim for
the head and the tail will be in that same spot seconds later. It's tough,
three Light Arrows will destroy the puppet.
Ganondorf will applaud your efforts and beckon you follow him to the roof.
Hop on the rope and climb up. Once you reach the top, find a grappling point
and use your Grappling Hook.
Climb on top of it, then keep climbing using
the Hook, stopping for pots if you need them. If you're afraid you'll

far the finest combatant in the game. Simple
strikes will just be blocked
by his superior technique. The only way you'll get a decent shot on him is
one of his movements. Zelda says she'll cover you with the bow, so
keep him busy so she can get a clean shot.
After a few of those, Ganondorf
