The Adventure of Link Dungeons
This is a list of palaces or dungeons found in The Adventure of Link.
- Main article: Parapa Palace
Parapa Palace is the first dungeon in The Adventure of Link, located in the Parapa Desert northeast of the North Palace and the Town of Rauru. Within the Palace, Link finds the Candle. The Boss of Parapa Palace is Mazura. As with each of the other Palaces, Link places one of the Crystals in a statue.
- Main article: Midoro Palace
The Midoro Palace is located in the Midoro Swamp, an area over the mountains south of Rauru. Inside, Link uncovers the Handy Glove, an item that allows him to break blocks with his sword. At the end of the palace awaits Jermafenser, the second boss in Link's quest. Again victorious, Link places another Crystal.
- Main article: Island Palace
Upon acquiring the Fairy spell and locating the secret cave south of King's Tomb, Link gains access to the Island Palace. Exploration yields the Raft, necessary to travel from Western Hyrule to Eastern Hyrule. The Palace's statue is guarded by the fearsome Rebonack, a mounted Blue Iron Knuckle. Victory permits the placement of the third Crystal.
Maze Island Palace
- Main article: Maze Island Palace
After using the raft to pass to Eastern Hyrule, Link locates the aptly named Maze Island Palace on Maze Island. After facing the perils within, Link finds the Boots, and faces Carock, the master Wizard, who can only be defeated by utilizing the Reflect Spell obtained in the Mountain Town of Darunia. Using the spell will allow Link to turn the fiend's own attacks against him. After Carock's defeat, Link can place the fourth Crystal.
Palace on the Sea
- Main article: Palace on the Sea
With the Boots, Link is able to traverse over water and reach the Palace on the Sea. His greatest challenge yet, this palace is a true maze, and The Adventure of Link's largest dungeon. Behind a false wall rests the Flute, an important instrument needed to destroy the River Devil and force the Three-Eye Rock Palace to materialize. The palace's boss is Gooma, a monstrous brute wielding a ball and chain. His defeat will permit the placement of the penultimate Crystal.
Three-Eye Rock Palace
- Main article: Three-Eye Rock Palace
When Link plays the Flute while standing in the middle of Three Eye Rock, the Three-Eye Rock Palace appears. In order to proceed beyond the first rooms of the dungeon, Link must have retrieved the Magic Key from the Hidden Town of Kasuto. The Cross, an essential item needed to see the invisible Moas in the Valley of Death is found within, defended by a reincarnation of Rebonack, as was encountered in the Island Palace. After using the Fairy spell to access a passage while falling down a pit, Link must face Barba, a fire-breathing dragon that rises from pools of lava. Defeating the beast allows Link to place the final Crystal.
- Main article: Great Palace
Once the six crystals have been placed, Link must make his way through the treacherous Valley of Death to the Great Palace, resting place of the Triforce of Courage. By far his most difficult challenge, Link must battle the toughest monsters through the giant corridors, culminating with a confrontation first with Thunderbird, then a battle with his own Shadow. With the final challenge complete, Link is awarded the Triforce of Courage and returns to the North Palace to awaken Princess Zelda.
