Themes and Navigation

The Treasure Chest with three Hearts in Stage 1

In Stage 1, the Links begin inside a chasm with pools of molten Lava. Two Gust Jars and a Boomerang are immediately available for use. To cross a gap to the next ledge, the Link with the Boomerang is propelled over with the other Links' Gust Jars, then carries them over using the Boomerang. A Treasure Chest containing a Red Rupee is sitting on a ledge, surrounded by a Flame Wall, which can be extinguished by forming a Totem firing the Gust Jar at it. The Links then move to a Swinging Platform, which will swing them over to the next ledge where the Triforce Gateway awaits. This Swinging Platform can be made to swing further by using the Gust Jar to propel it. The Links can ride it over to another Swinging Platform that leads to a Treasure Chest containing three Hearts. Alternately, the Links can simply form a Totem near the Triforce Gateway and throw one Link onto a nearby ledge leading to it.

The battle area in Stage 2

In Stage 2, the Links drop down to a large grated platform with three Floor Switches. Pressing the Switches summons a horde of Red Hardhat Beetles. As these Enemies are covered in flames, they must first be either stunned using the Boomerang, or extinguished with the Gust Jars, else the Links will get burned when attacking them. However, if any Link is wearing the Goron Garb, these flaming Enemies can be dispatched with only the Sword. As the Red Hardhat Beetles are defeated, several more will appear. After they are all defeated, a bridge leading to the Triforce Gateway will appear. Hearts and Rupees sitting on ledges along the way can be grabbed with the Boomerang.

Crossing the first gap in Stage 3

In Stage 3, the Links appear on another platform. A pair of Guruguru Bars can be seen spinning around on the next platform across a gap, the upper bar spinning faster than the lower one. The Links must carefully cross the gap while avoiding the flames by using the Gust Jars and Boomerang. The Links then cross a bridge north to a set of Swinging Platforms. As the first Swinging Platform does not swing far enough to reach the second, and must be propelled using the Gust Jar. The Links reach a ledge, then ride a stone platform raised into the air by a Lava Geyser and transfer to a final Swinging Platform, which also needs to be propelled using the Gust Jar to reach a passageway to the north. After dispatching a pair of Red Hardhat Beetles, the Links then cross a narrow, winding path over a lake of Lava with several spinning Guruguru Bars along the way. At the end of this path, they reach the Triforce Gateway and a Squiddy.

Stage 4

In Stage 4, the Links drop to an island inhabited by Fire Keeleons. As they are on fire, the Keeleons must also be stunned with the Boomerang or have their flames extinguished with the Gust Jar before they can be attacked, and a Totem is required in order to reach them. After they are defeated, more Fire Keeleons and some Red Hardhat Beetles appear. After they are all defeated, a stairway to the Triforce Gateway appears.

Drablands Challenges

Once the Boss of the Volcano has been defeated, Den of Flames can be replayed with the following Drablands Challenges: "Fewer Heart Containers!", "Avoid the volcanic rocks!", and "Clear within the time limit!".

In "Clear within the time limit!", the Links are given a timer of one minute in both single-player and Multiplayer. This timer can be increased by collecting Hourglasses or wearing Linebeck's Uniform.

Materials

At the end of the Level, three Treasure Chests can be opened. Two contain the same Material, and one contains another, more valuable Material.

Trivia

  • In Stage 1, three Blue Rupees can be found on fire atop a ledge. They will turn into Green Rupees if not collected within 15 seconds, making them the only known degradable Rupees in The Legend of Zelda series.
  • As described in Vol. 3 of the Drablands Diary, some fossilized bones are hidden in each Level of the Volcano. They can be found in Stage 3 of Den of Flames throwing one of more of the Links onto the ledge to the west of the first Swinging Platform, then shifting the camera to the upper-left.
