8.0 Heading to the Labyrinth

Use your candle to burn down the lone bush on this screen to reveal the entrance to the next labyrinth.

This is the hardest dungeon to actually find, because it is extremely well hidden. From the start screen, head left four screens, up two screens, right one screen, down one screen, and right one screen to find a pathway blocked by a lone bush. That lone bush is the entrance to the dungeon. Use the candle to get rid of it to reveal the entrance to the next Labyrinth: The Lion (#Roar).

8.1 The Magic Book

From the boring entrance hall, head through the western door to find Manhalda and two fireball-throwing Stone Statues. Kill Manhalda to unlock the door on the opposite side of the room and head through it.

The next room contains a pair of Red Darknuts, one Blue Darknut, a trio of Gibdo, and a pair of Bubbles. Kill all the enemies here (or at least the ones you can kill), then push the far left block to access the stairwell in the center of the room leading to a secret passage containing the Magic Book, which makes the candles essentially useless (yay!).

8.2 The Compass

Backtrack all the way to the entrance hall and head through the northern door to find another Manhalda. You don’t need to kill this done, so just blow up the northern wall and head through it to find the most annoying room in the game: five Blue Darknuts and four fireball-throwing Stone Statues.

Kill all the Darknuts, grab the key they leave behind, and head through the eastern door to find eight Pols Voices. You don’t need to kill them unless you want to, so just grab the Compass that’s lying in the middle of the floor and leave the room.

8.3 The Map

Back in the Statue room, head through the western door to enter a room with a pair of Pols Voices, Gibdos, and Keese. Ignore or kill all of them, grab the key in the middle of the room, and head through the western door to find a trio of Red Darknuts and four fireball-throwing Stone Statues. Kill all the Darknuts, grab the key they drop, and then backtrack to the other Statue room.

Head through the northern door to find a pair of Blue Darknuts, a pair of Bubbles, a trio of Gibdo, and one Red Darknut. You don’t need to kill them unless you want money, so just ignore them and unlock the northern door and head through it.

The next room is full of Blue Darknuts. You’re gonna want to kill these guys now so you don’t have to do it later. Kill them, then bomb the northern wall and head through it to fight Manhalda again (three encounters in this one dungeon already…wow). Kill it to grab the map.

8.4 The Magical Key

Unlock the northern door and head through it to find a Blue Ghoma, whose only difference is that she takes three hits to kill. Do so to unlock the northern and eastern doors, and head through the eastern door.

This room contains a pair of Blue Darknuts, a pair of Red Darknuts, and a pair of Pols Voices. Kill all of them carefully, and then push the far left block to access the secret passage leading to the Magical Key, which replaces all the keys you have so you don’t have to pick up any more.

Backtrack to the room with the two fireball-throwing Stone Statues and kill all of them if you haven’t already to unlock to eastern door. Head through it to come across a pair of Red Darknuts, a pair of Bubbles, a trio of Gibdo, and one Blue Darknut. You don’t need to kill them, so just avoid them and head through the stairwell into the secret passage and climb up the stairs to the next room.

Here you’ll find a pair of Blue Wizzrobes and a trio of Orange Wizzrobes that you don’t need to kill, so ignore them if you want and bomb the northern wall to face off agaist….wait for it…Gleeok (again)!

 

8.5 Boss- Gleeok (again)

Same strategy as last time. Go at him.

This time around, Gleeok has four heads, so avoid them and use the same strategy to take him down. Pick up the Heart Container he leaves behind and head through the door he was blocking to complete the Triforce of Wisdom! Next stop: Ganon’s doorstep.
