Adventure Mode

This article describes a subject that is or may be outside the core Zelda canon.

Adventure Mode comprises a majority of the content in Hyrule Warriors. The Adventure Map, based on the overworld of The Legend of Zelda, is a 16-by-8 grid made up of 128 battles. These battles are either Adventure Battles which are structured similarly to those in Legend Mode, or Challenge Battles which have specific victory conditions such as accumulating a certain number of KOs or defeating one or more Giant Bosses. The battles are not connected to each other with a story, except the intro does provide a rudimentary backstory (Ganon has unleashed several monsters) and overarching objective (defeat the monsters and ultimately Ganon). There is also a special Rewards Map whose stages are unlocked by collecting Gold Skulltulas and completing illustrations, and certain DLC packs include additional maps.

Rewards

Certain characters (Agitha, Zant, and Ghirahim), weapons, and costumes are unlocked in Adventure Mode, in addition to other collectibles such as Heart Pieces and Gold Skulltulas. Some of these are awarded upon completing a battle, some require an "A" rank, and others can be found under certain conditions within the battle. Weapons, Heart Containers, Pieces of Heart, and some Gold Skulltulas can only be earned when playing as the pictured warrior. One exception is costumes, which are awarded for completing the stage with any warrior. Often, these rewards are hidden and must first be unlocked using an Item Card. The stage can still be completed (except in cases of hidden enemies) before revealing the reward, but then the player will not receive that reward even if other conditions are met.

Navigation

Players navigate the map by completing stages with certain ranks to unlock adjacent stages. The required rank is displayed on colored arrows surrounding the warrior on the map. Completing a stage will unlock all adjacent stages requiring a rank equal to or lower than the earned rank. The lowest rank is "C", so stages requiring a "C" rank are unlocked simply by completing the adjacent stage. Some stages can only be accessed after using a certain Item Card, such as the Hookshot. After the path is revealed, the player must then complete the stage with at least the displayed rank in order to proceed, even if that rank was already achieved before using the item. Colored regions are unlocked as the player progresses through Legend Mode. The following table lists the scenario which must be completed in order to unlock each colored region.

Region Scenario
Green The Sorceress of the Valley (Valley of Seers)
Orange The Shadow King (Palace of Twilight)
Purple The Water Temple (Lake Hylia)
Brown Sealed Ambition (Sealed Grounds)
Blue Shining Beacon (Valley of Seers)
Red Liberation of the Triforce (Ganon's Tower)

Item Cards

Many stages award an Item Card upon completion. These are used to unlock rewards, reveal hidden enemies, and create paths to new stages. Once an Item Card is received from a stage, it will reappear on that stage after completing a certain number of battles. To use an Item Card, press X on the map screen to search the stage, then select the item to use, and finally select the square to use it on. If one is familiar with the original overworld from The Legend of Zelda, one may be able to guess the appropriate space and item. Otherwise, using the Compass will cause the correct space(s) to sparkle. From there, it is usually obvious which item to use. It is not required to use the compass.

Master Quest Map

TODO: Add an image showing the colored regions

Master Quest Items

The Master Quest Map uses the same Item Cards as the Adventure Map, with some changes. The Recorder must sometimes be used on trees or other spaces. Each map has its own inventory, so Item Cards obtained in the Adventure Map cannot be used in the Master Quest Map.

Master Quest Rules

Each stage has one of the following rules, intended to make it more difficult.

Speed Run!
Clear the battle within 15 minutes.
No Healing!
You cannot use potions, and no healing items will appear
No Guarding!
Guarding will not protect you from enemy hits.
No Item Attacks!
You cannot attack using bombs, the bow and arrows, the boomerang, or the Hookshot.
Don't Get Hit!
A single blow will put you at death's doorstep! You'll need to make effective use of the special Clock item to freeze enemies.

Twilight Map

TODO: Add an image showing the colored regions

Twilight Items

The Twilight Map has its own set of item cards, borrowing just a few from the original set.

Item Uses Item Uses
Compass Use this while searching to identify where an Item Card can be used. Clawshot Use this to pull yourself to a distant object.
Lantern Use this on torches to reveal hidden enemies. Water Bomb Use this on submerged rocks to destroy them.
Bomb Use this on boulders to reveal hidden staircases. Digging Mitts Use these on soft earth to uncover hidden stairways.
Jar Use this on switches to reveal hidden staircases. Ooccoo Use this on a green portal to warp to another location.
Fishing Rod Use this to catch fish in bodies of water. Tears of Light Use these to clear away areas covered in Twilight.
Spinner Use this on cog-shaped holes to reveal hidden staircases. Tears of Twilight Use this on any map square to reopen all areas affected by the Twilight Realm.

Twilight Rules

Some stages are covered in Twilight. These stages have special rules much like the Master Quest stages. In addition, the map will not show enemy positions when playing these stages. Both of these restrictions can be lifted by using a Tears of Light Item Card on the stage's search screen. Once the Twilight has been cleared from all stages on the map, a special Tears of Twilight Item Card will appear on the starting square, which can then be used to bring back the Twilight Realm and the associated restrictions on the affected squares.

No Special Attacks!
Defeating enemies will not fill the Special Attack gauge, and no Force Fragments will appear.
No Focus Spirit!
Magic Jars will not appear, so you will be unable to fill your Magic gauge.
No item attacks!
You cannot attack using bombs, bow and arrows, the boomerang, or the Hookshot.

Termina Map

TODO: Add an image showing the colored regions

Like in Majora's Mask, the Termina Map features a 72-hour countdown. Each time a stage is completed, one hour is subtracted and the moon grows closer. Once the countdown hits 0, the map is reset - all squares except the starting square, completed Owl Statue stages, and squares surrounding those stages are locked and the countdown returns to 72. Rewards and Item Cards received are not lost. Ranks achieved are also saved, so if a player previously unlocked a stage by achieving an "A" rank on an adjacent stage, the player would only need to complete that stage with any rank the next time around. The Song of Time Item Card can be used to reset the map at any time, and the Inverted Song of Time will add 10 hours (10 stages) to the countdown.

Completing a stage on a square with an Owl Statue will activate that statue. Stages with activated Owl Statues will remain unlocked after the map is reset, as well as any squares surrounding it (even across boundaries). The countdown can be stopped completely by gathering all four Giant Item Cards and using them on the Clock Town search screen, and then defeating the Dark Ruler in the revealed area.

Tips
  • When going for A Rank, try to avoid encountering any of the Manhandlas, as well as any of the enemy warriors. They are fairly slow, so running away to a new group of enemies isn't that difficult.
  • Take advantage of arrow or bomb upgrades from the keeps. Quick way to defeat many small enemies at once.
  • This is one of the best missions to farm dark materials.

  • Defeat the enemy commander.
Tips
  • If you're going for A Rank, avoid the Cucco at all costs. Hitting it too many times will cause it to call in reinforcements, making the health requirement difficult to obtain.
  • Rescue the Fairy of Water in West Cannon Keep and use it to dispel the barrier at South Keep. Do this early on.
  • Ganondorf is the same element as Ghirahim, so the fight will take some time. Try to run through the level as fast as possible while getting the required 1200 KOs. It may be easier to separate the treasure run with an A Rank run.

  • Lana's special attack is very effective at clearing out Keeps, as are bomb powerups.

  • If the Giant Bosses team up, run away. They should begin to move away from each other.
  • Ganondorf's shadow ball combo plus a special attack will deplete most of each Bosses weak point gauge.
  • To make Ganon's weak point gauge appear, you'll have to counter four attacks. When his right hand glows orange, throw bombs at it. When a blue eye appears on his left hand, fire an arrow at it. When he jumps in the air, his tail will glow purple; use the Hookshot on it. Finally, when he fires seeds at you from his shoulders, use the Boomerang. Once all of this has been done, a purple glow appears on his head. Hit it with an arrow, and the weak point gauge will finally appear.

  • After defeating the captains, a Gibdo will appear and charge the Allied Base. Since the fight against Ganondorf can take a while, it's a good idea to take out the Gibdo to prevent any chance of the base falling.

Start
  • Defeat all Giant Bosses within the time limit.
Tips
  • Ghirahim is fairly efficient at taking down the Argoroks. To avoid getting teamed up on, take out the Argorok in the south first. The Argorok in the middle will most likely come down there as well, but If you stay in the south while fighting the Argoroks, Manhandla will probably not interfere with you.
  • For the weak point gauges, use the Hookshot on Argorok's tail when it's purple. For Manhandla, use the boomerang on its heads when they turn green, usually after a seed attack. To trigger the seed attack consistently, stand a medium distance away. Remember to block!
  • The time limit should not pose a problem here. Facing both Argoroks at once may pose an issue with the damage limit, but their attacks are fairly easy to dodge once you learn their attack patterns.

Use the Fairy of Darkness in West Field Keep. For the fight against Ganondorf, lure him out of the Keep and fight him outside of it. This is much easier to do than trying to capture West Field Keep from outside.
  • To get Ganondorf outside the Keep, rush the center and put Ganondorf between you and an exit. Fire a Special Attack, which will throw Ganondorf all the way back to the exit. Use a few basic attacks to push him out. So long as Sheik stays close to the Keep, Ganondorf will also stay out there.

  • Ganondorf should go down fairly quickly against Agitha. Help Lana if she requests it.
  • When tasked with defeating Zelda, you only need to get her down to about two thirds to half health. Cia can do the rest. This gives you time to get the A Rank KO count and heart pieces, as well as extra time to fight Link. Make sure you take out the enemy commanders around Zelda, otherwise Cia could fall.
  • Note that Agitha's special attack can take out Link's weak point gauge in one hit. This helps save some time.

Finally, when he fires seeds at you from his shoulders, use the Boomerang. Once all of this has been done, a purple glow appears on his head. Hit it with an arrow, and the weak point gauge will finally appear.

Tips
  • First Room: Spam Ganondorf's BBBBBY combo (the one with the giant black hand). This will take out the large Imprisoned toes in one hit, and deal damage to the smaller ones as well. If you're having trouble, focus entirely on the small guys first. It's easier to take down the big one without having the small ones messing up your combos.
  • Second Room: Try to keep everyone in a group. When a weak point gauge appears, deplete it and hit everyone with the strong attack. If you're having trouble, lure the faster Dinolfos away and take them on separately from the Moblins.
  • Third Room: Same weak point strategy from the second room can be used here. The Aeralfos is the biggest threat, so it may be worth focusing on him first. It's also a good idea to take out the Beamos immediately upon entering the room.
  • Remember that you have 15 minutes to do this for the A Rank. Take your time and allow enemies to reveal their weak point gauges. It's much safer (and faster) to fight this way.

EnemiesMissions
Start
  • Defeat the enemy captains to lure out the commander.
  • Defeat the enemy commander.
Tips
  • Get Lana up to at least level 70-75 and have most of her badges unlocked. This is probably her hardest mission to A Rank since her weapon is terrible at getting high KO counts. You'll need the high level damage.
  • Focus entirely on the captains at first. Use any area attacks to get some KOs while doing so. For any Aeralfos, rely on their weak point gauges. Ignore the Gold Cucco. Save your Focus Spirit.
  • Use the large Cucco special attack to clear out Keeps in one attack. Just make sure you get a line of enemies in front of you first.
  • Once the captains are gone, a huge amount of enemies will move out from the southwest. Use your Focus Spirit here! This is the only place to rack up a lot of KOs during the entire mission.
  • Save the treasures for a non A Rank run. Link will take several minutes to defeat, and fighting against the captains will likely take a good 10 minutes.
