This article is about the dungeon in Four Swords Adventures. For other uses, see Pyramid (Disambiguation).

The Pyramid is a Stage in Four Swords Adventures.[1] It is the final Stage of The Desert of Doubt, coming after the Desert of Doubt and the Desert Temple. This large monolith reminiscent of the Ancient Egyptians is said to have been constructed by the ancestors of the Zuna.[citation needed]

Themes and Navigation

This Pyramid is filled with slow-moving, yet dangerous Gibdos and Puzzles which the Links must complete to reach the Big Moldorm that lurks deep within this ancient tomb. Shadow Link also appears to place Giant Bombs that instantly defeat the Links if hit. After the Big Moldorm is defeated, the Links rescue the Purple Shrine Maiden. With the inclusion of the Purple Maiden, all six Maidens call Princess Zelda to determine her location. However, before the Links rescue the Maiden, they realize that the Trident is missing from its resting place in the Pyramid. The maidens believe the one behind its robbery is Ganon.

Force Gems are rather abundant in this area, with the 2000 needed to charge the Four Sword obtained quickly. The Nightmare Key unlocks a Treasure Chest containing a rare Force Gem worth 1000.
