Drop the fruit of the water plant to from a stone platform on the lava.

Fire Sanctuary Walkthrough - 01.png

Notice the plants growing near the ceiling. When struck, these plants will release water. When dropped in lava, these will create stone platforms you can cross. Do this to cross the first lava pit.

Defeat the Bokoblins to get the Small Key

Fire Sanctuary Walkthrough - 02.png
Create another stone platform, and ride it down the lava stream while avoiding the arrows from the Archer Bokoblins.

Jump onto the platform at the end and defeat all of the Bokoblins here to access the Blue Chest with the Small Key.

Drop down and a cutscene with Guld the Mogma will play. Use the Small Key to open the door and enter the next room of the Fire Sanctuary.

Let Magmanos lift the stone platform.

Fire Sanctuary Walkthrough - 03.png
Following the path, you'll come across an octagonal room with a wire-mesh floor and bubbling lava beneath it. Run to the stone platform and the Magmanos will push you up. Jump onto the ledge.

Traverse the vines to make your way across the room.

Fire Sanctuary Walkthrough - 04.png
Climb up the vines and defeat the Bokoblins here. You'll want to use your bow to shoot down the other Bokoblins in the area too so that you can safely climb the vines without being shot down.

Defeat the Dark Lizalfos on the bridge.

Fire Sanctuary Walkthrough - 05.png
Once you've made your way around, drop down to the platform below. The door beyond will have a Dark Lizalfos, so be sure to save at the bird statue nearby before going through.

Defeating the Dark Lizalfos is not that much different from facing a regular Lizalfos. Just be careful not to get cursed or else you won't be able to attack with your sword for a short while.

Use the Hook Beetle to remove the rocks blocking the lava.

Fire Sanctuary Walkthrough - 06.png
Cross the bridge and enter the door on the other side. Climb up the steps on your right, and you'll notice the statue has rocks blocking the flow of lava.

Use your Beetle to fly into one of the upper rock formations to pick up a Bomb Flower and use it to clear these rocks.

Drop the water fruit to form a stone platform and ride it to the other side of the room.

Fire Sanctuary Walkthrough - 07.png
Now you can create a stone platform that will let you cross the lava. Head up the steps and into the unlocked door.

Use the Gust Bellows to clear the hot rocks and access the chest with the small key.

Fire Sanctuary Walkthrough - 08.png
Ignore the trapped Mogma for now and proceed along the stone path. Use your clawshot to get past the molten rock. Open the Blue Chest to get the Small Key.

Head back to the previous room and use your Small Key on the locked door. Navigate your way around the room, cutting down plants to safely proceed.

Thrust your sword into a water fruit to carry it over to the Frog Statue.

Fire Sanctuary Walkthrough - 09.png
Once you get to the raised platform, thrust your sword onto a nearby water plant for its fruit to stick to your sword. You can then thrust in the direction of the frog statue to quench its thirst.

Defeat the 2 Magmanos.

Fire Sanctuary Walkthrough - 10.png
Continue along the now-opened path, defeating the Bokoblins and Keese inside. The next room will pit you against 2 Magmanos, so we recommend saving at the bird statue here.

Ride up the left stone platform and stick a water fruit to your sword. You'll use this to throw at the Magmanos causing it to harden. Once solidified, strike it 4 times to defeat it. Do this for each Magmanos.

After defeating both Magmanos, the lava in this area will recede. Proceed to the room where the Mogma is hanging from.

Pull the lever to free the hanging Mogma.

Fire Sanctuary Walkthrough - 11.png
Pull the lever down to rescue him and he'll reward you with the Mogma Mitts. This will let you burrow underground and travel between holes.

Burrow underground to get to the next room.

Fire Sanctuary Walkthrough - 12.png
Go underground in a nearby hole and head for the northern exit.

Use the Gust Bellows to blow away the hot rocks to reveal another burrow spot. Press the button underground.

Fire Sanctuary Walkthrough - 13.png
Once above ground, use your Gust Bellows to clear the molten rock here.

One of the holes under the molten rock should allow you to burrow underground again. For this section, you'll want to activate the switch in the middle of the tunnels.

Approach it from the left and attack it to open up a gate.

Return above ground and go through the recently-opened path. Head up the steps and through the door.

Use your clawshots to cross the broken bridge, then enter the door on the other side.

Burrow underground and press both buttons.

Fire Sanctuary Walkthrough - 15.png
You'll find another Mogma trapped here. Head to the back-right part of the room and burrow into the hole. There will be two switches that you have to activate. Start with the north switch.

Thrust your sword into a water fruit and carry it over to the Frog Statue.

Fire Sanctuary Walkthrough - 16.png
After hitting both switches, head back above ground and the path to the water fruit should be open. Thrust it onto your sword and quench the thirst of the frog statue.

Flip the lever to lower the Mogma.

Fire Sanctuary Walkthrough - 17.png
Pull the lever down to free the Mogma. You'll be rewarded with a Dungeon Map.

Detonate the wall to uncover the hidden room. Use the Dungeon Map as a guide.

Fire Sanctuary Walkthrough - 18.png
Place a bomb on the wall directly opposite of the Chest with the Dungeon Map to reveal the secret room. Burrow underground in the hole in the secret room.

On the other side of the hole should be a Blue Chest with a Small Key.

Return to the room where you fought the two Magmanos, and unlock the door here.

Fire Sanctuary Walkthrough - 19.png
Head back to the room you burrowed into after helping the first Mogma. Unlock the door here and go through.

Drop a water fruit into the lava to cross the river. Head to the northwest room.

Fire Sanctuary Walkthrough - 20.png
Follow along the path and cross the lava river. Head up the steps and through the door.

Defeat the enemies inside and follow the path till you get to the burrowing hole.

Corner the Mogma hiding underground.

Fire Sanctuary Walkthrough - 21.png
Once in the hole, you'll have to corner a Mogma. Once you catch up to it, you'll earn a Blue Chest with a Piece of Heart.

Drop a water fruit into the lava to get to the other side.

Fire Sanctuary Walkthrough - 22.png
With the gate now open, you can create a stone platform which you can ride down the lava river. Jump on the platform on the other side. Step on the pressure plate for easier backtracking.

Burrow into the ground near the bird statue and use a bomb to clear the lava.

Fire Sanctuary Walkthrough - 23.png
Burrow into the hole next to the bird statue. You'll have to let the lava flow, while also returning to the surface safely. Once you do, the lava will flow out of the statues.

You can now head down to the lava, create a stone platform and ride it down the lava river and onto the next safe path.

Dive towards the left monument, a path will appear beneath.

Fire Sanctuary Walkthrough - 24.png
Go onto the walkway directly opposite of the bird monument and jump off the left and into the lava. A platform will appear where you can land safely.

Follow the path and you'll enter a room with two Dark Lizalfos. Take them out then go through the door on the upper ledge.

Climb up the spiraling staircase, using the Clawshots when necessary. Enter the door at the top of the steps to find the room where the Silver Chest is.

Press the underground buttons that correspond to the bird statues with the least to the most wings.

Fire Sanctuary Walkthrough - 25.png
Burrow underground and you'll find switches that correspond to a bird statue above it. Hit them in the sequence of the one from least wings to most wings.

Defeat the Moldorm to resurface.

Fire Sanctuary Walkthrough - 26.png
After hitting all 5 switches in the right order, the gate to the Silver Chest should open, but you'll have to defeat the enemy here before returning above ground.

Get the Mysterious Crystals from the Silver Chest.

Open the Boss Door with the Mysterious Crystals.

Fire Sanctuary Walkthrough - 27.png
Return to the Bird Monument in front of the Boss Gate and use the Mysterious Crystals to unlock it. Prepare for a battle with Ghirahim.

Rematch the boss, Demon Lord Ghirahim.

Fire Sanctuary Walkthrough - 28.png
Much like the first time you fought him, strike Ghirahim in a way where he won't grab your sword. Take out his daggers first before striking him. He will start out with 2 daggers at a time, then 4.

For his second sequence, he will bring out two swords. Strike at an angle he isn't blocking.

Every now and then he will send multiple daggers at you. Counter-attack with the appropriate sword slash to take them out.

Ghirahim may also sometimes blink into invisibility before shortly dropping at you from above. When he disappears, hop backwards and prepare to perform a jump strike on him after he lands.

When you've damaged Ghirahim enough, he will leave and you can obtain a Heart Container for your reward. Enter the glowing door ahead.

How to Beat Ghirahim

Head to the Sealed Temple.

Fire Sanctuary Walkthrough - 29.png
Hit the crest in the next room with a Skyward Strike. Earn the Master Sword. Return to the Sealed Temple.

Continue to the Sealed Grounds (3rd Visit) Walkthrough

Fire Sanctuary Bosses

Ghirahim

Ghirahim is the boss you will face at the end of Fire Sanctuary. Similar to the first encounter, you need to attack him at the opposite direction to deal damage.

How to Beat Ghirahim

Dark Lizalfos

The Dark Lizalfos is one of the Fire Sanctuary's minibosses. They move faster than the usual Lizalfos and can inflict curse, which prevents you from using items.

Moldorm

The Moldorm is a miniboss that can only be fought while inside the underground tunnel. Use the Mogma Mitts to strike its tail and destory the rear segments.

Two Magmanos

You will battle against two Magmanos as the Fire Sanctuary's miniboss. Use a Water Fruit and toss it over to the miniboss or pour water from a bottle. This cools and hardens the enemy, allowing to deal damage.

Fire Sanctuary Enemies

List of Enemies Strategy
Cursed SpumeCursed Spume You can safely defeat it by shooting with a bow.
Dark KeeseDark Keese Note that if you hit the same as normal Keese, you will not be able to use your weapon for a while.
MagmanosMagmanos Magmanos cools and hardens when hit by water nearby, so you can defeat it by slashing it four times while it is solidifying. Keep in mind that you will be damaged just by touching it.
Red Bokoblin (Archer)Red Bokoblin (Archer) Bokoblin (Archer) attacks from a long distance, so it is effective to use a bow and arrow here as well. Since it has 1 health, it can be defeated with a single blow. If you have a fire arrow, guarding with a wooden shield is not recommended.
