Shadow Temple Walkthrough for Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3DS

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.

To Beat the Shadow Temple:

Walk through the entrance and down a corridor and turn left. Use the hookshot to get across to another wall. Walk through it. Now turn left and go through the wall after the one right next to you.  You can use the Lens of Truth to find the hidden passageways. Now go through the door and head to the right. Use the Lens to find a secret passageway. Go through the door and kill the zombie and the bats. Get the chest for the dungeon map.

Now go back out to the room and go right through the path with pots on both sides. Keep going to be in a room with Dead Hand. Kill it the same way you killed the one in the well. Now get the Hover Boots out of the chest that appears.

Now go back to the main room with the torches. Look around with the Lens of Truth for a skull torch that is real. Now push the thing sticking out of the statue until the statue's beak is pointing that way. Now put your hover boots on and run to the tongue on the other side. You should hold on to the tongue, then go through the door.

Now walk to the bottom of the path and go to your right. Kill the mummies to get the compass. Now go to the room with the laser and go to the opposite door. Do not get hit by the blades. Get all of the silver rupees to open the door. There is one on a platform - get there with a hookshot. Now enter the door opened by getting all the silver rupees. Get the small key out of this room and go back to the room with the laser.

Bomb the north wall. This will open a path with a locked door. Go through it. Kill the spider that hangs from the ceiling, then walk down the path. Turn the corner and kill the next spider. Walk down to the end, kill the spider, then turn left. You will see big blades which you must walk under. Walk under the first one, kill the spider, then walk under the second one.

Now go to the right and follow the path to the left. You must be moving constantly, so that the hand from the ceiling does not grab you. Put on the hover boots. Jump across the blades to the platform with the Stalfos Skeleton on it. Wait until he stops blocking, then hit him until he dies. Now turn to the right and you will se a moving platform. Wait until it hits bottom, then jump for it (with hover boots on). Now turn to the right, and wait until the place is reachable. Jump for it when you are very near.

Now take the path to the left, where a laser and two spikes are at. Get all of the sliver rupees. One of them is under the laser, so destroy it with two bombs. Getting the last one will open the door. Now walk through the door,

Now go through the path until you get to a room with spikes coming from the ceiling. Put on the lens of truth to find a pull-able block to the right. Pull it out of it's hole until you get to the path. Now push it all the way to the other side of the blades. Now jump onto it from the higher level of ground. Jump to the right onto the ledge. Now walk over the spike holder and jump to the other side.

Now step on the switch. This will make a chest appear on the other side of the room.  Use the top of the spike holder to get over to it. Open the chest to get another key. Now go back to the room with the laser and spikes.

Now go to the ledge path and put on the Lens of truth. Go to the big blade and run under it. With the Lens of Truth on, you should see a moving platform. Jump onto it. Wait until you are near the door, then jump over to it with your hover boots on. Open the door and walk in.

Keep the Lens of Truth on. Get all of the silver rupees. To do this, look around with the Lens of Truth on, and you will see hookshot catchers that you can use. Use them to reach the one on the invisible platform, and the one on the other side of the room.

Now enter the door that opens. Jump up the platforms to the top. Now grab a bomb plant and throw it on to the top of the skull. It should leave a key. With the key, exit this room back to the room with the locked door on the ledge. Use the Lens of Truth to see the hookshot catcher above the ledge. Use the hookshot to get to the ledge. Now open the door.

Go through the path. When you get to the fans, wait until they stop, then run. Keep going until you get to a hole in the ground. Use your hookshot on the log above the ledge to get there. Keep walking until you get to a ledge in the middle of the room with fans on either side. Use the lens of truth to see a secret passageway to the left. Put on the Hover Boots, and hover over there after passing some fans.

Now open the door and go to the right. You should see a dirt pile. Bomb the dirt pile. This will reveal an invisible chest for you to get a key out of. Use the Lens of Truth to see it. Now go through the locked door on the other side of the room. Pull the block on the left to the hole on the right. Now climb the ladder.
  Go over to the Triforce on the ground to the left. Stand on it and play Zelda's Lullaby. The boatwill start moving. After the cut-scene, defeat the Stalfos Skeleton. When the boat starts to slow down, jump off the left side to the ledge. Now go through the door to the right. You will be in a room with hands. Use the Lens of Truth to see the invisible walls. Go all the way to the door on the west side of the room (you came in the south side).

You should be in a room with an invisible enemy. Use the Lens of Truth to see the hand and kill it. Once you kill all the little hands, the chest will appear with a key. Now go back to the room with the hands. Go to the north room and use Din's Fire to burn the closing in spikes. Then get the boss key from the chest. Now go back to the room the boat dropped you off in.

Look to the right and you should see a doorway. Walk a little further and you should see some bomb plants next to a huge statue. Shoot one of the bomb plants with an arrow to make a path across. Go through the locked door.

Use the Lens of Truth to see the platforms that you walk on. Jump from platform to platform until you get to the boss door. Now open the door and fall down the pit to face Bongo Bongo (a drum player).

When he starts hitting the drum with his hands, hit both of his hands with arrows. Turn on the Lens of Truth, to see the eye of Bongo Bongo. When the hands come flying by you, hit the eye with the sword. Remember, the eye is invisible, so put the Lens of Truth on. Keep hitting the eye until it dies. Grab the heart and walk into the light.

Now you must head to Gerudo Fortress....
