The Legend of Zelda

Entrance to the Labyrinth

In the First Quest, the Labyrinth's entrance is located atop the Lost Hills. Link must climb up four consecutive times to reach the Labyrinth.

In the Second Quest, the Labyrinth's entrance is located within the lake area of central Hyrule. The Raft, which is obtained in Level 4, is required to reach this Labyrinth's entrance. This Labyrinth's location in the Second Quest is the same as the location as Level-4 in the First Quest.

Themes and Navigation

Similar to Level 3 and Level 7, the Labyrinth is primarily colored green. Inside the Labyrinth, Link will be introduced to the mummy-like enemy known as Gibdos. He will need the Stepladder to cross the pits of lava. The main item of the Labyrinth is the Recorder, which can be used to warp between Labyrinth entrances in the Overworld and unveil hidden places. It is also used to weaken this Labyrinth's Boss, Digdogger, allowing Link to defeat it. After defeating Digdogger, Link will receive a Heart Container and obtain a Triforce Fragment in the next room. A hidden room within this Labyrinth houses a Bomb capacity upgrade. The Old Man there will offer the ability to hold four more Bombs for 100 Rupees.

In the Second Quest, the Labyrinth's walls and floor are yellow, similar to the First Quest's Level 6. Like Level-6, it also contains many Wizzrobes. The main item of the Labyrinth is the Bow. The Boss is a three-headed Gleeok.

The most notable difference in Second Quest is the shape of this Labyrinth, changing from a lizard to the shape of the letter "Z." The Maps of the first five Labyrinths in the Second Quest each symbolize a letter, spelling out an anagram for "ZELDA."

Entrance to the Dungeon

Level 5 is located in the Great Swamp, where the Swamp Palace is found in the Dark World in A Link to the Past. The entrance to the Dungeon is blocked by Rocks, thus, the Hero of Light must use the Worn-Out Glove and the Pegasus Boots to access it.

The Dungeon features block puzzles alongside various chasms that must be crossed with the Hookshot. One of these puzzles requires a block on floor one to be pushed into a hole in the ground in order to press a Switch on basement one. Many walls can be blown with Bombs, revealing hidden rooms filled with Treasure Chests containing Rupees. A Thief can also be found selling a Bomb upgrade for 100 Rupees. Once the Hero of Light defeats the Lanmolas, the Dungeon's Bosses, they drop a Heart Container, followed by a Stone Tablet.
