Shadow Temple Walkthrough for Zelda: Ocarina 3D (Master Quest)

Note: This walkthrough is for the Master Quest of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3DS. If you want to see the normal dungeon, go to Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D Shadow Temple Walkthrough.

Now that you have gotten the Lens of Truth from the well, you must head to the Shadow Temple.

To get to the Shadow Temple:

First go to the Temple of time to become big Link (if you are not big already). Put your Master Sword in its holder to become big.

Now play the Nocturne of the Shadow. This will take you to the entrance of the Shadow Temple. Head down the path and stand in the center of the room. Use Din's Fire to make all of the torches light up. Now enter the door that opens.

When you arrive in the Shadow Temple, head north and then look to the east; you will see a black and white target on the other side of the cliff. Longshot to that target, then head north through the invisible wall, into the next room. In that room, use the Lens of Truth to reveal the pole with the real skull on it. When you spot the only pole with the skull, push the block with the bird to the pole with the real skull, but make sure the beak of the statue is facing the skull. Once you do that, the gate on the chasm will open.

Now, use the Fire Arrows and shoot the unlit torches above the weird statue with hands above the gate that opened when you put the bird statue on the skull. When the torches are lit, an ice block will appear on the chasm, so use that ice block to jump over to the other side, where the gate used to be. Enter the new area and follow the path to the new room. In that room, avoid the Beamos enemy, and walk through the invisible wall to the east of the Beamos, then enter the door into the next room. In this next area, defeat the two Gibdo enemies.

Once they are defeated, a chest will spawn. Open it for a Small Key. When you have that, exit this room. In the previous room, head through the invisible wall to the left of the Beamos, then enter the door there, into the next new area. In this area, avoid the spinning blade statue, defeat the Skulltula enemies, and collect the five Silver Rupees in the room.

When you collect all of the Silver Rupees in the room, head into the alcove where the chest that just spawned is. Once there, defeat the Skulltula enemy, then open up the chest for the Dungeon Map! When you have the Dungeon Map, head to the next alcove directly to the west of the one you're in now. In that alcove, use the Lens of Truth to reveal a hole. Drop down the hole, into the next area. Here, open the chest that is invisible without the Lens of Truth, and open it for another Small Key. Now that you have that, climb up the rusted chain wall, back up to the previous room. Now, exit this room completely. Back in the room with the Beamos enemy, head back to the room with the bird statue.

Once there, use the Lens of Truth and look behind the bird statue and you should see a weird piece of wall under one of the weird face tiles on the wall. When you see that weird piece of wall, bomb it, then go through the area it was blocking, and unlock the door with your Small Key. In this next new room, head north and then you will see a skull on the wall with blue eyes.

A voice will come from the skull. Head through the invisible wall, into the next room. In this room, head east and use the Lens of Truth beside the skull with the blue eyes; you should see a hallway with a door that you can enter, so go into it. In this next new area, play the Sun's Song to freeze the four Redead enemies. When the Redeads are frozen, kill each one of them with the Master Sword. When they are defeated, a chest will spawn, which contains the Compass. Once you have the Compass, exit this room.

In the previous room, head east of where you just came out of, then use the Lens of Truth, and you should see a Time Block. Play the Song of Time to make the Time Block disappear, then when it does disappear, head through the door, into the next new area. In this area, look to the south and you should see three silver eyes. They fire flames and jars also come after you, so deflect the jars using your shield.

Once the jars are destroyed, focus on the eyes. Shoot the middle one with the Fairy Bow. Now, head to the western room on your Dungeon Map, but be sure to use the Lens of Truth. When you enter the door to the next room, you will be forced to fight another Dead Hand. Defeat it the same way you did in the Bottom of the Well. Then, when you defeat it, a chest will spawn, which contains the Hover Boots! Once you have the Hover Boots, exit this room.

In the previous room, backtrack all the way back to the Beamos room. When you arrive in the Beamos room again, destroy the Beamos enemy, then use a Bomb on the weird piece of wall that is not an invisible wall to destroy it. When the wall is destroyed, unlock the door with your last Small Key. In this next new room, follow the path into the next room, while avoiding the spiked traps and the guillotines you come across. Also, while defeating the Skulltula and the Beamos enemies you encounter along the way to the new room.

Anyway, when you reach the new room, head north through the pits and while avoiding the guillotines in the area, until you come across a platform that has two Beamos enemies on it. When you see that platform, go onto it. On that platform, take out the Beamos enemies. Once they are defeated, look to your left and use the Lens of Truth; you will see several platforms. Jump onto the nearby one, then you should see a frozen golden eye switch below the platform you are on. When you see it, walk to the very edge of the platform and turn off the Lens of Truth. Then, when you are in range of it, shoot a Fire Arrow at the frozen eye.

After shooting the eye switch, hover across the other platforms in the area and at the end of the platforms, enter the door, into the next new room. In this room, turn on the Lens of Truth to spot the spinning blade statue. Now, collect all of the five Silver Rupees in the room. There are more than five Silver Rupees, but I was counting the real ones.

To tell which of the Silver Rupees are fake, listen to the sound; the fake ones will sound like the other Rupees you collect in the game. Anyway, after you collect all of the five Silver Rupees in the room, the gate will open, so kill the Like Like enemy beside the gate, then head through the once gate-blocked area, into the next area. In that area, use the Lens of Truth to reveal a small chest to the east of the already visible chest. Open the eastern chest, ignoring the first one, as it houses nothing but a Blue Rupee, which is utterly useless.

Once you open the east chest, you'll get another Small Key! Now, exit this room. Back in the previous room, hover across the platforms, then make your way back onto the platform with the two Beamos enemies and the Bomb Flower. Once there, ignore the Beamos enemies, unless for some odd reason you'd like to kill them, and instead across the ice platforms, then get onto the platform north of the ice blocks. When you are on that platform, avoid the spiked traps and the Beamos enemy, while collecting the five Silver Rupees in the room.

When you get the three on ground level, look up at the ceiling, and you should see a black and white target; Longshot to it to get the other two Silver Rupees. Once you have all the Silver Rupees in the room, open the chest that spawns for some Arrows. Now, hit the crystal switch with your Spinning Sword Attack. The gate then opens, so enter the next area. In this area, follow the path into the room with three spiked platforms coming down from the ceiling (They move up and down.). When you come to that room, use the Lens of Truth to spot a brown block on the eastern side of the room, hidden in the wall.

When you spot the block, pull it out of there, then onto the weird face tile. When it is there, push it until it is in between the first two black spiked platforms. When it is, go to the other side of the block and pull it the rest of the way. When the block is in place on the weird face tile, climb onto the block, then jump on the platform to the left. Once there, jump onto the nearby spiked platform, and use it to get over to the eastern platform. On the eastern platform, press the switch to spawn a chest.

When the chest spawns, jump back onto the nearby spiked platform, then jump to the left platform once more. Then, use the Longshot on the chest you just spawned and when you reach it, open it for another Small Key. Now that you have that, this room is useless, unless you want the Gold Skulltula in it. If you do, check the Gold Skulltulas (MQ) section of the guide for more information on getting this one. Regardless if you get the Gold Skulltula or not, after getting the Small Key, leave the room and head back into the room where the Beamos and spiked traps were (The room where you collected the five Silver Rupees a few minutes ago.).

When you arrive in that room, walk across the narrow path to the south of the ice blocks. Use the Lens of Truth and you will spot a moving platform, as well as a locked door. Hover onto the moving platform, then on that, hover into the alcove with the locked door. Once there, open the locked door, using your Small Key. You will come into another new room.

In this next room, collect all of the Silver Rupees that are collectable on ground level. Once you have collected those, use the Lens of Truth to reveal black and white targets throughout the room. Longshot to them until you collect all of the real Silver Rupees (Yes, the Silver Rupees in here are fake, too.). Once you collect all of the Silver Rupees in the room, use the ice blocks floating in the center of the room to get you to the locked door (In order to reach the ice blocks, use the Lens of Truth to reveal two black and white targets on the ceiling directly above the ice blocks. Then, Longshot to one of them to get onto one of the ice blocks.).


When you reach the locked door, unlock it, using your last Small Key. Then, in this next room, equip the Iron Boots if you don't have them already to avoid being blown away by the strong winds of the fans in the room. Your goal here is to reach the other side of the room. In order to do that, after you come across the second fan, kill the Skulltula enemy.

Then, you'll come across a cliff. Look up and then you should see two wooden pillars or something on the ceiling; Longshot to the latter one, and you'll reach the other side of the room! When you reach the other side of the room, drop down to the area below. Then, head north and go through the door at the opposite side.

In this next room, defeat the four Redead enemies, then use the Lens of Truth to reveal a hidden chest. Open that chest to get another Small Key. When you have that, exit this room. Back in the previous room, switch back to the Hover Boots and use the Lens of Truth to reveal a hidden alcove. Let the fans blow you to the alcove.

When you reach the alcove, enter the door, into the next room. In this next room, freeze the two Gibdo enemies by playing the Sun's Song. When you freeze the Gibdo enemies, strike them both with your sword until they die. When the Gibdos are out of the way, open the chest that spawns for a Blue Rupee. Then, head to the locked door in the room, and unlock it with the Small Key you have left. Then, in this room, you'll see a ferry in front of you. Go west and you should see a brown block.

Pull the block until it completely covers the green floor. When it does, keep pulling it until you can't pull it any longer. Then, go to the other side of the block and push it into the small indentation in the floor. Once the block is in place, climb on top of it and then climb the ladder, to a new platform. On that platform, use the Hover Boots to reach the ferry. On the ferry, play Zelda's Lullaby on the Triforce symbol to get the ferry to start moving. When it gets moving, defeat the two Stalfos enemies that attack you.

When you defeat them, at the end of the ride, when the ferry goes into the next unexplored area, drop down to the floor because if you don't, the ferry will sink into a pit! Anyway, when you drop down onto the ground after the ferry ride, shoot the a Bomb Flower on the other side of the room with a Fire Arrow. Doing this will cause the bird statue in the room to fall down, creating a makeshift bridge. Cross the makeshift bridge, to the other side of the room. When you reach the other side of the room, head east and you should see a Time Block. When you do, play the Song of Time in front of it to make it disappear. When it disappears, a golden eye switch is revealed, so shoot it with the Fairy Bow. After shooting the eye switch, two black pillars that have black and white targets on them will appear.

Look up, and you'll see the second one on a high ledge. Longshot to the ledge, grab the Heart Container atop the pillar, then look down and you should see a switch on this platform, so drop down when you see that and press the switch. After you press the switch, the door to the next room will unlock, so drop down to the area below, then climb the side of the makeshift bridge, then cross it, to other side. There, head west and enter the newly unlocked door, into the next room. In this next new area, use the Lens of Truth to reveal hidden obstacles in the maze. Make your way through the maze and enter the western door on the Dungeon Map. br />
In this next room, go behind the spinning skull statue, and you'll find a Small Key. When you have acquired the Small Key from the room, exit it, into the previous area. In the previous area, make your way through the maze once again, using the Lens of Truth to reveal the obstacles and enemies in the room. Make your way to the northern room on the Dungeon Map. When you reach it, unlock it with your Small Key. In this next room, use Din's Fire to melt the wooden objects with spikes on each side of you that are coming toward you to squash you.

OOnce the wooden obstacles are melted, ignore the Fire Keese enemies that you created by using Din's Fire, but instead open the blue and yellow chest in the room for the Boss Key. When you have the Boss Key, exit this room. Back in the maze, navigate through it and make your way back to the room with the makeshift bridge. When you arrive at that area again, cross the makeshift bridge, back to the other side of the room.

Once there, head through the door, into the next new area. In this area, use the Hover Boots to nagivate your way through the room, but be careful not to fall off. Also, use the Lens of Truth to reveal the platforms within the room. When you reach the boss door in the room, open it. In the next room, walk north and drop down the hole and you will fight Bongo Bongo, the boss of the temple.

Fall down the hole to where Bongo Bongo is. As far as his attacks, Bongo Bongo likes to catch you in his hand, then throw you into the poison, which can be annoying, so be careful of that. Also, if you miss hitting his hands, he'll attack you then, too, so avoid that. As for the battle itself, it's not hard at ALL, considering how long it took to get to this boss. To beat him, L-Target him and shoot an arrow at both his hands. They will freeze. Once they freeze, use the Lens of Truth on his ugly eye. This will stun his entire being, so this is your chance to strike him with your sword. This is a heck of a lot faster if you have the Biggoron's Sword. Keep doing this until you win. NOTE: Bongo Bongo also hits the floor with his hands, so use the Iron Boots to avoid being bounced around so much. Sure, you can still be bounced, but not as high.
 

When Bongo Bongo is defeated, grab the Heart Container, save your game, and head through the blue portal.
