In the new version of Dodongo's Cavern, pick up a Bomb Flower on either side of the room, and then throw them to the door there to blow it up. Once the door is blown up, head into the cavern itself. Once inside, jump to the pillar to the north. Once you are on the pillar, jump to the platform with the Bomb Flower in the center of the room. Once there, pick up the Bomb Flower and jump to the area below, and throw the Bomb Flower on the rock to the right (The one on the left is useless.). Once it is blown up, a switch is revealed, so step on it. Doing so will cause the pillar in front of you to rise up to the second level!

Now, jump onto the pillar that is elevating up to the second level. When the pillar elevates to the top, quickly jump to the second floor. When you reach the second floor, ignore the three rocks, as you can't do anything about them now. Instead, head north, and cross the bridge. Once you cross it, press the switch in the alcove. When it is pressed, a torch below is lit, and a door also opens. Now, head down to the area below, and enter the door that just opened, ignoring the lit torch. In this area, head north, and ignore the Beamos enemy, as you can't kill it now. Instead, grab a Bomb Flower from the cluster of Bomb Flowers. Once you have the Bomb Flower, throw it to the door (Like the one we had to bomb in the beginning of the dungeon.).

The door will be destroyed, thus enabling us access further into the dugneon. Now, take out a Deku Stick and light it using the lit torch beside the door made out of rocks (Like the one we had to bomb in the beginning of the dungeon.). Once the Deku Stick is lit, make it where the fire touches the Bomb Flower on the right side of the wall (The Bomb Flower is in the room that was revealed after you bombed the door.). Doing this will cause the Bomb Flower to drop down. When it is on the ground, quickly pick up and throw it to the blank spot in the middle of the cluster of Bomb Flowers, where one Bomb Flower is not placed.

If done correctly, when the Bomb Flower explodes, it'll explode with the entire cluster of Bomb Flowers, and stairs will be revealed. Ignore them, and pick up a Bomb Flower, and throw it to the Beamos on the left side of the room. Once the Beamos is destroyed, a Silver Rupee will be revealed underneath where the Beamos was, so pick it up. Now, for the next Silver Rupee, head to the north of where you got the last Silver Rupee at, and break the wooden crate in the right corner. When it is broken, another Silver Rupee will be revealed. Now that we have two Silver Rupees, it's time to head up to the upper levels of the room, so head up the stairs we revealed earlier.

When you reach the top, ignore the stone white platform, unless you want to buy a Deku Shield, which you can't unless you have lost yours. Anyway, whether or not you buy the Deku Shield from the Business Scrub, roll against the wooden crate to the west of the white stone platform to get the next Silver Rupee. Now, for the next one, follow the path from the wooden crate until you come across a Skulltula enemy (It'll drop down from the ceiling.). Kill the Skulltula when you come across it, and then climb up the nearby vines and grab the Silver Rupee there. Now, for the final Silver Rupee, head north past the vines and defeat the next Skulltula that comes down from the ceiling.

After the Skulltula is defeated, roll against the wooden crate to the north to get the final Silver Rupee. Now that you have that, head through the door to the north of the vines, and enter the next area. In this area, defeat all the Dodongo enemies using the Bomb Flower atop the pillar in the middle of the room, or by striking them with your sword on their tail a few times. They explode when they die, so move out of the way before they can hit you. Anyway, after all the Dodongo enemies are defeated, a chest will be spawned, which contains the Compass of the dungeon. Now that we have that, head through the door that you have not been through yet in this room. In this next area, head across the bridge. At the end of the bridge, head into the next area. In this area, push all of the brown blocks in the room to where they are facing the unlit torches on the walls. This is hard to explain in words, so please, just try and make the best of my explanation.

Anyway, once the blocks are facing the unlit torches, head up the ladder beside the blocks and the torches, and take out a Deku Stick. Use the lit torch to light your Deku Stick. Once your Deku Stick is lit, drop back down to the area below that you were just in, only jump to the block that is below you. Once you are on the block successfully, light the unlit torch, then jump to the left block, light the unlit torch there. Finally, jump to the rightmost block, and quickly light the unlit torch. Once all of the torches are lit, head to the other side of the room and climb the ladder there. Then, jump to the ledge with the golden-colored lit torch. Once there, take another Deku Stick out and light it. Once it is lit, jump to the platform where the ladder just carried you before you jumped on this platform. Go north and melt the web.

Once the web is melted, jump back to the platform with the golden- colored lit torch, and then light another Deku Stick with it. Once the Deku Stick is lit, jump back to the platform you just came off of, and then light the nearby unlit torch. After it is lit, quickly hit the Skulltula spider with your Deku Stick to kill it. Once the Skulltula enemy is killed, quickly light the other unlit torch. Once they are both lit, head into the next area. Once there, drop down to the area below and you should see a brown block to the left. Push it to the other end of where it is now and then when it is at the other end, push it against the platform there (The platform with the Skulltula.). Once the block is in place, get on it and head up onto the platform there. Once there, kill the Skulltula enemy and head into the next area. In this room, clear the enemies of the Keese enemies and the Skulltula enemy.

Once they are all gone, take out another Deku Stick and light it using the golden-colored lit torch in the room. Once your Deku Stick is on fire, quickly head north of the torch, and knock the Bomb Flower off the wall on the left side of the room using your lit Deku Stick. Once the Bomb Flower is knocked down, pick it up and throw it to the door there to blow it up. Once the door is blown up, head through the door, into the next area. In this area, you'll have to defeat two Lizalfos enemies. Once they are defeated, head through the newly unlocked door, into the next area. In this next room, drop down to the area below. Once there, head north and break the wooden crate, as behind it is a crystal switch.

When the crate is out of the way, hit the crystal switch. Doing so will dissipate the fire on the middle platform in the room. Now, quickly head south of your current position, and you should see another wooden crate. Do not break this one, but instead jump on top of it and then jump onto the platform you appeared in when you first entered this room (Not the middle platform, mind you.). Once you are on that platform again, jump to the middle platform. While the fire is dissipated, quickly jump into the small alcove to the west that has a Bomb Flower, as well as a Keese in it. In the alcove, kill the Keese and grab the Bomb Flower. Once you have the Bomb Flower, drop back down to the area below. Once there, head to the eastern side of the room and to the north you should see a rock (Or boulder.). Throw the Bomb Flower at the boulder.

Once that rock is blown up, ignore the switch that is revealed for now. Instead, hit the crystal switch again, then go and hit the switch that was just revealed. Once you hit both switches, quickly use the wooden crate like we did before to get back up to the middle platform in the room. Once you are on the middle platform, jump to the platform to the north, but hurry, as the fire will soon come back! Once you are successfully up on the platform, jump north to the next area. Here, head north and jump across the bridge to the other side. Once you are on the other side, continue heading north, and you'll see a Bomb Flower, as well as three rocks. Pick up the Bomb Flower and use it to blow up the rocks blocking your path. Once they are gone, pick up the Bomb Flower you just used to clear the rocks from your path, and drop down to the platform directly below you, but be careful not to fall into the lava. Once you are on the platform, quickly throw the Bomb Flower to the nearby door to the north of where you drop down (Or if you dropped down closer to the door, you'll see it the second you hit the ground.). The door will explode, and an alcove with a chest will be revealed.

Open it for the Dungeon Map! Now that we have that, jump onto the pillar that elevates you to the second floor. Once you are on the pillar and it elevates, jump onto the second floor. When you reach the second floor, pick up the Bomb Flower again. This time, jump to the east side, rather than the west side and you should see a door that has not been exploded yet. When you see it, quickly throw the Bomb Flower at it to blow it up. When that door is blown up, enter the newly revealed area. In this next new area, head north and jump onto the leftmost white stone platform. The platform will elevate, and carry you into an alcove. Enter it. In the alcove, grab the Bomb Flower and drop down to the previous area. Now, throw the Bomb Flower to the nearby rock to blow it up. Once the rock is blown up, another Bomb Flower spot is revealed, but you blew the Bomb Flower up when you exploded the rock just a moment ago. Wait until the Bomb Flower regenerates.

When it does so, pick it up and throw it to the Bomb Flower on the eastern part of the wall. If dne correctly, the Bomb Flower that you just threw will have caused all of the other Bomb Flowers stacked on top of each other to explode, thus breaking the rock. Once the rock is broken, a golden eye switch is revealed, so shoot it with your Fairy Slingshot. Doing so will unlock the door into the next room. Enter the door and in this area, avoid the Baby Dodongo enemies while heading through the door you haven't been through yet. In this next room, you'll have to fight two more Lizalfos enemies. Once they are defeated, head through the unexplore door, into the next room. In this next area, head north and defeat all of the Poe enemies. Once they are defeated, pick up the Bomb Flower in the right corner of the room beside the locked door. Once you have the Bomb Flower in your hand, throw it to the cluster of Bomb Flowers to the south of where you are now (The cluster is on the pillar to the south of you.).

Once again, as we're pretty much used to now, all of the Bomb Flowers will explode, and the door that was just locked a moment ago will be unlocked, so enter it. In this next room, head north and open the chest for the Bomb Bag! Now that we have Bombs, drop down to the main room. Once there, jump onto the pillar that elevates to the second floor, and use it to jump to the second floor yourself. Once you are on the second floor yet again, head onto the bridge and then drop a Bomb in the two holes in the bridge. If done correctly, both eyes of the Dodongo statue will turn red, and its mouth will open. When the Dodongo statue's mouth opens, drop down to the area where the statue is and then enter the door into the next area. In this area, head north and drop down to the area below. In this area, defeat the Baby Dodongo enemies that come up out of the ground.

When they are defeated, jump to the platform on the east side of the room (East on the map.). Then, head north up the hilly area until you reach the next room. When you reach the next room, take out the nearby Baby Dodongo enemy. Once that is taken care of, keep following the path and you'll come across another Lizalfos enemy. Defeat it, and then throw a Bomb across the fire and it'll hit the crystal switch. Once the crystal switch is hit, the fire in front of you will dissipate temporarily, so jump over to the other side. Now, take out all of the Armos enemies using Bombs. Once they are defeated, throw a Bomb to the cluster of Bomb Flowers. If done correctly, a crystal switch will have been hit, giving us further access into the dungeon. Anyway, after the crystal switch is hit, jump across the two ice platforms, and onto the other side.


On the other side, break the jar if you need a Fairy, but regardless, head north through the hallway into the next area. In this area, you will encounter a gravestone. Push it back and a switch is revealed. Press it to unlock the door in the room below. Once you press the switch, head through the newly unlocked door into the next area. In this area, bomb the patch in the middle of the floor. A hole is revealed, so drop down into the area below. In this area, you'll encounter King Dodongo, the boss of the dungeon.

This boss battle isn't too particularly difficult. King Dodongo will use only one attack, which is his fire breath. To avoid it, if you happen to get caught in it, stand on the very edge of the lava pit. Now, how to beat him is what we wanna know, right? To do that, when King Dodongo comes near you, throw a Bomb into his mouth to stun him. While he is stunned, hit him with your sword. Dodongo will roll across the room, into a different area, but the way to beat him is still the same. Hit him four times to beat him.

Once King Dodongo is defeated, grab the Heart Container, save the game, and enter the blue portal. You'll be warped back to Death Mountain.
