The Water Temple

Land of Myth is the second and final scenario in the Ocarina of Time set of the Hyrule Warriors Legend Mode.

Following this scenario, the branching paths recombine with The Sacred Sword. Completing all three paths unlocks Zelda (with Rapier) as a playable character in the Wii U version & Hyrule Warriors Legends.


"At the fairy's request, Impa had fought her way to the summit of Death Mountain to rescue Princess Ruto.
There she subdued the Goron chieftain, Darunia, who had temporarily lost his senses.
Upon freeing Princess Ruto, however, Impa was shocked to learn the reason for the conflict between the Zora and Goron people.
The ancient Water Temple was teeming with monsters that poured from the Gate of Souls.
What's more, the monsters were apparently led by Princess Zelda herself!

Hoping to make sense of this disturbing revelation...
Impa and her newfound allies journeyed to Lake Hylia.
When they arrived, they were greeted by a Zelda seemingly consumed by evil...

Piece of Heart

Gold Skulltulas

  • After completing Legend Mode the first time, a second Skulltula becomes available. This requires it to be in Hard Mode, played with Impa, and using the Giant Blade. Defeat King Dodongo within three minutes of his arrival while keeping Sheik alive. The Skulltula appears at the top of the cliff at the north end of the map, the same cliff she can jump off for a surprise attack.
