Tri Force Heroes Walkthrough – Woodlands

1.1 Deku Forest

Stage 1

When you begin the stage, have each Link pick up a Bow. At the north end of the area there are three floor switches. Create a totem and toss one Link onto the highest platform. Then toss another Link onto the middle platform. Step on all three switches to open the door. Step into the triforce to progress to the next stage.


Stage 2

In this area you will find green Buzz Blobs. These creatures can be defeated using either your sword or your bow and arrow. Climb the steps on the right and toss Link over to the other platforms to defeat the remaining Buzz Blobs. Open the treasure chests for some goodies and then step into the triforce.

Stage 3

Strike the switch to cause the nearby platform to move. Cross the bridge and then totem up. Shoot the crystal switch to activate another platform. To the north you will find a treasure chest that contains some extra rupees. Progress to the right and stand on the moving platform. While it is moving, strike the orb to the north with an arrow, causing another platform to activate. Run northward and enter the gateway to the next stage.

Stage 4

Jump down and you’ll find a series of Octoroks. The one in the center can be defeated with a single arrow. Each of the Octoroks on the sides are a bit higher up and will require you to totem up with one of the Links. The third Octorok to the north is even higher, requiring you to totem all three links. Defeat all of the enemies and enter the gateway to clear the Deku Forest.

1.2 Buzz Blob Cove

Stage 1

With all three Links, pop the initial balloon with your sword, grab the bow, and then shoot down the arrow ahead to lower the bridge. Have all three Links meet in the larger center platform and defeat the Buzz Blobs. Totem up and toss two Links up on the higher platform to the right. Toss another Link even higher up, and then shoot down the balloon that contains a small key. Grab the key and unlock the nearby door. Step into the gateway to reach the next stage.

Stage 2

Run down the platform with all three Links and step on the center switch, causing eight Buzz Blobs to appear. The yellow one will shock you if you hit it with your sword, so instead, keep your distance and use your arrows. Defeat the Buzz Blobs and seven more will appear. Get rid of all of the enemies and head northward to the gateway. You can open the nearby treasure chest to get some extra rupees.

Stage 3

It is recommended that you stay in a three-tier totem for much of this stage. Walk across the moving platform and hit the center orb with your sword or an arrow. There are two Octoroks here that can be defeated with arrows while in a full totem. To the west you will find a treasure chest that contains some rupees. To the north and east, there are a pair of crystal orbs that can be shot with arrows. With all three orbs hit, walk through the newly opened door on to the next stage.

Stage 4

Jump down to the lower platform to encounter a giant Buzz Blob. The large red orb is its weak spot. Shoot four arrows at the orb to end the first phase. The Buzz Blob will stand taller, requiring you to totem up. After four more arrows, the Buzz Blob will fully stand up, requiring you to fully totem up. Nail it with three more arrows to defeat it. Enter the gateway to complete the Buzz Blob Cave.

1.3 Moblin Base

Stage 1

Ride the leaf on the right to the higher platform and then grab the bow and the bombs. Use the bombs on the left side of the area to destroy the blocks that are in the way. Have all three Links come up to the this area and then toss one of the Links to the right side. Totem up and stand on the yellow square, with the Link that has arrows on top. Shoot the orb above and then quickly toss Link to the right side. Before the timer runs out, shoot another arrow at the orb. With both orbs triggered, the pathway to the next stage will open up.

Stage 2

This stage is littered with fairly simplistic enemies. Just to the north there are a trio of octoroks that you can defeat with Totem Link and an arrow. The third octorok is three stories up, so you’ll have to full totem. Along the northern wall there are two boulders that can be blown up using bombs. Both will reveal treasure chests containing some rupees.

At the north end of the stage there are a pair of like-like’s that will eat up some of your health. Toss a bomb at the like-like and it will gobble it up, exploding on its inside. On the left side of the stage there are four yellow buzz blobs to deal with. Once all the enemies have been defeated, enter the gateway to reach the next stage.

Stage 3

Defeat the buzz blob and walk across the wooden log. Defeat another buzz blob and then beware of the like-like. Take care of the octorok to the right and then climb the steps to find a moblin. Use your sword, arrows, or bombs to defeat the enemy and then walk across the log to the right.

At the northeast part of the stage, toss a bomb right above the grating, causing the orb to trigger, lowing the nearby wall. Totem up so that one of the Links with the bow is on the second level. Quickly shoot the three higher orbs, and then drop down or use the other Link to shoot the lower two orbs. This will cause a small key to appear to the left.

Make a three-tier totem and toss two Links over the water to the left. Then toss another Link to the platform on the left to snag the key. Toss the key from Link to Link, to get it back to the right side. Walk over the log and use the key on the locked door. For the other Links, jump into the water and swim southward to land. Enter the gateway to reach the next stage.

Stage 4

In this stage there are a series of moblins. Some of them are on the ground floor and can be defeated easily with virtually any weapons. Other Moblins are on top of Armos statues. These can be defeated by tossing a bomb at them, or by using the Totem mechanic and shooting with at the moblin with an arrow. Later on, there are moblins that are three-stories high, so you’ll have to fully totem.

There are two moblins on the highest of ledges on the two sides. You’ll have to totem three-tiers up, and making sure that Link with the bombs is at the top. Toss a bomb to blowup the moblin. With all the enemies defeated, step into the gateway to complete the Moblin Base.

1.4 Forest Temple

Stage 1

In the first area, there are four torches on the ground floor, but one of them is not lit. Stand at the far right of room and face westward. Shoot an arrow throw the flame, causing it to light the other torch. Just above there is another unlit torch, this one higher up. Totem up so the bow is at the top. Shoot an arrow to light the next torch.

There are four spinners in this room. Throw the bombs so that they land in the center of the spinners, causing them to explode. Once all four have been defeated, grab the key and unlocked the door. Step into the gateway to advance to the next stage.

Stage 2

Step on the floor switch with all three Links and it will cause a number of enemies to appear. Defeat the spinners by tossing bombs onto them. The tektites can be defeated in multiple ways. Link can totem up and shoot arrows at them, or climb the steps at the north end of the room and directly shoot arrows. When all enemies have been defeated, step into the gateway to reach the next stage.

Stage 3

Avoid the arrows that are being shot and run to the west side of the room. You’ll notice that the top arrow is actually catching the flame. Use your bombs to blowup the two blocks that are in the way. This will cause the fire arrow to light one of the torches at the west end of the room. Now stand at the southwest part of the room and face northward. Shoot an arrow to light all three torches, causing a staircase to appear.

Run across two straightaways, avoiding the arrows. At the west end of the room, push the block northward and then all the way to the east, blocking the arrows that are shot at you. Follow the pathway with all three Links. At the end of the road, use a bomb to defeat the spinner and then step into the gateway.

Stage 4

The first boss battle of the game is with Margoma. Run around the room until spikes come out of the sides of Margoma. Eventually the whole in the center of the boss will open. Quickly toss a bomb into the hole to stun Margoma. At this point you can totem up and toss a Link on top of Margoma where he can deliver sword slashes to its eye. Alternatively, Link can totem up so that the second level Link has arrows and he can shoot the eye.

After hitting Margoma, he will grow in size. This will require you to Totem two stories high, so that Link can toss a bomb into the opening of Margoma. Repeat the same process and keep slashing the eye of Margoma until its body has been defeated.

At this point, the eye itself will jump out and start hopping around the room. The best way to defeat it is to shoot it with an arrow and then follow that up with sword slashes. Repeat this same process until Margoma has been defeated.
