Entrance to the Cave

Talus Cave can be selected from the Stage-Selection Screen at any time and has no prerequisite conditions. The entrance is marked by a stone doorway at the base of a mountain in western Hyrule.

Themes and Navigation

Talus Cave is a massive cavern within an icy mountain. Due to the cave's extreme temperature conditions, many floors are covered in Ice.[2] Other obstacles such as Water and Rocks are also present.

The Great Fairy of Ice has long been the guardian of Talus Cave and provides the Links with Silver, Golden, or Hero's Keys for the area depending on their performance.[3] The cavern's master, Dera Zol, resides within a particularly icy portion of the cave and acts as the Stage Boss.[2]


Minor Enemies



Talus Cave is likely named for a type of cave in real life. Talus caves are openings between rocks found in a pile, often at the base of a cliff, called a talus or scree.
