The Graveyard, located directly south of the Harbor Town of Mido is a large area swarming with Red Moa and Daira. In the middle, Link encounters King's Tomb. Directly south of King's Tomb, Link finds a secret passage that leads to the Island 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.

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.

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

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.

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.

With the final challenge complete, Link is awarded the Triforce of Courage and returns to the North Palace to awaken Princess Zelda.
