The Legend of Zelda

Entrance to Level 2

In the First Quest, the Labyrinth's entrance is atop a green hill in the eastern part of Hyrule north of the forest area.

In the Second Quest, the Labyrinth's entrance is a stairway hidden under an Armos statue in the western part of Hyrule. This is the same spot that a Shop selling the Blue Ring is located in the First Quest.

Themes and Navigation

The interior of this Dungeon appears to be made of stone bricks, like most Dungeons in The Legend of Zelda, with its primary color being a deep and dark shade of blue. One room is filled with sand and is home to Moldorms. The main item of this Dungeon is the Magical Boomerang, an upgrade of the previous normal Boomerang. It is guarded by a room full of blue Goriya. The Boss of this Dungeon is a single Dodongo, who guards one of the Triforce Shards. This Dungeon is also houses an Old Man who tells Link that "DODONGO DISLIKES SMOKE." This Dungeon has more Keys than is needed to unlock all of the doors in the Dungeon, as there are four Keys and three locked doors.

Like most Labyrinths in the Second Quest of The Legend of Zelda, the layout greatly differs from the First Quest in size and difficulty. Additionally, the walls and floors of the Labyrinth are instead the color green, thus being more similar to Level 3 in the First Quest. In the Second Quest, the main Item of this Labyrinth is the Recorder, located in a basement room guarded by Keese. Manhandla appears as a mini-boss and Gleeok is the main Boss guarding one of the Triforce Shards.

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