Stone Beak

FallingEnlarge Stone BeakEnlarge

Head back to the previous room and fall through the hole toward the right door. The room you land in will have two Like-Likes and a Red Stalfos, so be ready to fight them or move away.

Mirror Shield

Mirror ShieldEnlarge

Head back to where you landed after falling down, and go into the right room. Use a projectile to hit the switch and turn it orange. Then head left.

Go down a room, and defeat the Like-Likes here, then go through the doorway here and head north.

Small Key #2

HoleEnlarge Small Key 2Enlarge

Open up the treasure chest here and obtain Small Key #2. Jump down the ledge and defeat the enemies here, using your Mirror Shield to paralyze the Beamos. Go up the stairs to the far left to emerge where you obtained the Map.

Breaking Pillars

Ball 2Enlarge

Back in the room where you got the Map, head down a room. From here head east and enter the room with the large ball. You can also speak with the owl stone here who tells you that The riddle is solved when the pillars fall. Pick up the ball and place it near the doorway you came in from. Pull back the lever and then hurry over to the entrance you came in, pick up the ball, and go back to the left room (you will need to be quick!).

PillarEnlarge Pillar 1Enlarge

The next room has a large stone pillar, so we need to make it fall, as the owl suggested. Do this by throwing the ball directly at it. Pick the ball up and head south. Throw it at the pillar in this room as well. Pick the ball up, head back one room, and push the block here forward a space. Pick the ball up again and go through this room.


CompassEnlarge Ball ThrowEnlarge

Continue north, throwing the ball over the spikes, then picking it up and heading that way. Once in the next room, you will encounter a set of Three-of-a-Kind. Defeat them by timing your attacks to hit them while their face shows the same card suit. A treasure chest will appear. Open it to obtain the Compass. Go down a room and throw the ball over the ledge so that it is on the ground. Head up a screen and go down the stairs.

The Third Pillar


After going down the stairs you will encounter two Peahats and a Mini-Moldorm. Go left (above the raised orange tiles), and defeat the Kirby in your way with bombs or your Boomerang. Go down two screens until you reach the chest where you obtained the Stone Beak. Go up the stairs here, and go through the revolving door once you reach the next room.
Pillar 2Enlarge

The next room is filled with Flying Tiles, so go to the corner and shield them until they run out. Carefully make your way to the room on the right, careful not to fall. Now you will be back to the ball and pillar, so once again throw the ball at the pillar. Push the bottom block of this room into the hole, toss the ball to the other side, then hop over, pick up the ball again, and continue to the right. Move the block here, and go south two rooms until you reach the color switch. Toss the ball over to the other side of the room.

Small Key #3

Red HinoxEnlarge

Now head back to the last room with a pillar that you broke. Go up a room to where you fought the Three-of-a-Kind (you can skip them this time), and head down the stairs. Return to the stairs from before by going left, then down two screens. After going up these stairs again, go down one screen to encounter the Red Hinox.
Small Key 3Enlarge

Much lke before, the Hinox will dash at you and try to grab you, or throw bombs at you. He can be difficult in this small space because of all the holes and projectiles being fired at you. The best thing to do is stand on the other side of a hole from him, and use a combination of bombs and boomerang to hit him until he is defeated. He will leave behind a fairy, and Small Key #3 will appear, so pick these both up.

Secret Seashell #48

Secret Seashell 48Enlarge

Fall through one of the holes left of where the small key just dropped down from. Dash north and go up two screens, until you reach a treasure chest. Open it up to receive Secret Seashell #48. Then drop down the ledge and head back to the room where you fought the Red Hinox.

The Last Pillar

Ball Throw 2Enlarge Cracked Wall 1Enlarge

From the room where you defeated the Hinox, head right. In this next room, you will encounter another Three-of-a-Kind. Defeat them to make a treasure chest appear. However, you will not be able to open it yet. Go into the next room and pick up the ball, then go back to the previous room and go to the ledge, then throw it across to the other side. Go back two rooms and through the revolving door, and then go right. Bomb the cracked wall on the south part of the room and go through the hole.

Cracked Wall 2Enlarge TowerEnlarge

Continue along the path and bomb the next cracked wall to enter where we previously threw the ball. Hookshot to the chest and open it up to receive some bombs, pick up the ball and head up a screen to find the last pillar. Throw the ball at the final pillar. This will trigger a cutscene showing the a floor of the tower collapsing, turning this four-story tower into a three-story one. Now you can warp back to the entrance, or go down a screen and fall into the hole.

Mini-Boss: Grim Creeper

Blue SwitchEnlarge

From the dungeon entrance, have a look at your map and locate the stairs on the right side of the first floor. Head two rooms right, and then one up to reach them. Emerge from the stairs and go down one room until you reach the locked block. Unlock it, then walk up the stairs. Hop down the ledge on the left side and hit the switch to turn it blue, then go up the stairs here. After reaching the 3rd floor, go north one screen, then right to find the Grim Creeper.
Grim CreeperEnlarge

Grim Creeper will sit on a ledge to play his flute and summon six big Keese, which will proceed to fly at you. You need to hit all 6 hit your sword before they have a chance to fly away, or else he will summon six more. The easiest way to do this is to stand by a wall facing the center and spam the B button so that the Keese fly into your sword. You only need to do this one time to defeat him. He will leave behind a warp point to the beginning of the dungeon, and the doors will open up.

Nightmare Key

BlocksEnlarge Nightmare KeyEnlarge

Go through the top right door that opens after defeating Grim Creeper. There are three Sparks here, so take them out with your Boomerang if you have it to clear up some space. Then move the two blocks into the center of the room to reveal a treasure chest. Open it up and get the Nightmare Key.

Getting to the Nightmare Lair

Nightmare LairEnlarge

From where you got the Nightmare Key, go back to rooms. Go to the left side, taking out the Goombas in the way, until you reach the boss door. Use your Nightmare Key and go through. From here, you can go a few rooms forward and get the Secret Medicine if you do not have any. If not, walk up the stairs here and use your Hookshot to get to the block on the other side of the room. Go south, then head right and go up the stairs here. You will show up outside, so climb the stairs to the stop to meet with Grim Creeper once again.

(Optional) Secret Medicine

Black ChessEnlarge White ChessEnlarge

After opening the door to the Nightmare Lair, go north. From the northern room, go right to find a room with a conveyor belt, a Zol, and a Beamos. Reflect the Beamos' laser and defeat the Zol. Then throw the chess pieces into the green spaces here. Stand one space above or below a green space and throw the pieces straight ahead toward the opposite tiles to get them in perfectly. Doing so will reveal a chest with some Secret Medicine.
Secret MedicineEnlarge

Now you are ready to take on the Nightmare, so go back two rooms, go up the stairs, hookshot over, and proceed forward.

Eagle's Tower Nightmare: Evil Eagle

Evil EagleEnlarge FeathersEnlarge

The Evil Eagle is one of the least linear battles so far. The first thing to remember is to always remain on top of the tower. If you are below due to falling or getting knocked off, or climbing the ladder, the Evil Eagle will use its feather attack to send an onslaught of feathers your way, which will not end until you are back up. If this happens, take your time climbling up, being cautious not to get hit.
Evil Eagle Attack 1Enlarge

While actually on the tower, the Eagle has many attacks it will use. When it flies in a straight line across the screen to run into you, it is very easy to hit it with your sword or Boomerang, so this will be the best time to attack it. Be sure not to get hit though, as it will deal a lot of damage.

Evil Eagle Attack 2Enlarge Evil Eagle Attack 3Enlarge

When the Eagle goes to one of the top corners and stops, it is going to do one of two attacks. One of these is an attack where it shoots heavy wind and feathers in your direction. When this attack occurs, hold the left stick to run forward so you do not fall off, and repeatedly jump with Roc's Feather to dodge its feathers. The other attack is one where it pauses in the corner before swooping in toward the center of the tower to attack you. This is another good time to hit it with your sword or boomerang.

Heart ContainerEnlarge Organ of Evening CalmEnlarge

After dealing enough damage, the Grim Creeper and Evil Eagle will be defeated, dropping a Heart Container. Pick it up, then go down the ladder and through the stairs. Hop down the ledge to the right and go through the door that opens here. Pick up the Organ of Evening Calm to complete the dungeon.
