Death Mountain is a Stage from Four Swords.[1]

Entrance to the Mountain

Death Mountain can be selected from the Stage-Selection Screen at any time and has no prerequisite conditions. The entrance is located in a volcanic mountain range in northwestern Hyrule.

Themes and Navigation

Death Mountain is a constantly-erupting volcano engulfed in Lava. Due to the area's extreme temperature, floors are often covered with open Flames.[2] Other obstacles such as Rocks are also present.

The Great Fairy of Flame has long been the guardian of Death Mountain and provides the Links with Silver, Golden, or Hero's Keys for the area depending on their performance.[3] Gouen, a creature made of flames, acts as the Stage Boss.[2]

Minor Enemies and Traps


  • The symbol associated with Death Mountain resembles the Fire Element.
  • Death Mountain is the only stage in Four Swords that is a recurring geographical feature in Hyrule. The other land-bound stages, or at least their names, are never reused, although Vaati's Palace is implied to be the same as the Palace of Winds.
