Spirit 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 Spirit Temple Walkthrough.

After visiting the Desert Colossus, you must go to the Spirit Temple as young Link.

To get to the Spirit Temple:

You should have already learned the Requim of the Spirit. Use that as Young Link to warp to the entrance of the Spirit Temple. Walk inside the temple.

Spirit Temple (Young Link)

Head up the stairs and open the nearby chest for some Bombchus. Now, look up at the entrance of the temple and on the set of pillars on the right side, you should see a crystal switch. Shoot it. After that, open the chest that spawns for some more Bombchus. Once you have that, look directly south of the chest you just opened and on the west wall near the unaccessible pillar of water, you should see a boulder behind the statue there. Bomb the boulder with a Bomb and/or a Bombchu, then an eye switch will be revealed, so shoot it.

After you shoot the eye switch, open the chest that spawns for a Small Key. Now, talk to Nabooru, who is just left of the chest you just opened. Nabooru will ask you what you want, so tell her nothing. She'll then ask a favor of you, but only after asking you if you are one of Ganondorf's followers. When she asks that, tell her any of the two choices displayed on the screen, and she'll keep talking to you. When she asks if you will get the Silver Gauntlets for her, say yes. She will then move away from the hole, thus giving us access further into the temple! Crawl through the hole, into the next area. In this next area, take out the two Torch Slug enemies using Bombs or the Spinning Sword Attack. Or, you can use a jump attack, but be sure to have them L-Targetted if you are going to beat them that way.

Once they are defeated, two doors to the new areas unlock, so enter the right one, into the next room. In this room, take out the Gibdo enemy. Then, pull the rightmost grave to reveal a switch. Step on the switch, then stand on the very edge above the pit below, but make sure you are facing the very middle of the floor, just south of the boulder in the area you see to the north, with the two Gibdos.

Anyway, stand in that exact position, then throw a Bombchu; if you are lucky, it will have hit the boulder in the area to the north of you with the Gibdos. When you hit the boulder, a golden eye switch is revealed, so shoot it, and an ice platform appears, so jump on it, then jump over to the other side of the room. In this area, kill the two Gibdo enemies, then the door to the next room with unlock, so enter it. In this next room, step on the black spinning platform and you'll have to fight a Stalfos enemy. Defeat it, or knock it off the platform and to the cliff below. Once it is defeated, the door to the next room unlock, so enter it. In this room, take out the Keese enemies, then pull the gravestone in the room to reveal a switch.

When the switch is revealed, step on it. Doing this will create a makeshift bridge, so cross over to the other side there and defeat the Anubis enemy with Din's Fire. Once the Anubis enemy is defeated, open the nearby chest for a Dungeon Map. Then, open the small chest that spawned for another Small Key. Now, enter the door, into the previous room. In this next room, throw a Bombchu into the small crawlspace just below the golden eye switch in the room. If the Bombchu goes through, you will blow up a boulder, allowing you to crawl through the hole, so do it when that happens. In this next area, unlock the locked door using one of your Small Keys, and you'll be in another new area. In this area, hit the crystal switch to move a gate.

Then, kill the Like Like enemy that drops down, then climb the wall to the floor above. On this floor, kill the Baby Dodongo enemies, then kill the Beamos enemy. After that, a chest will spawn, so open it for some Bombchus. Once you open the chest, look on the wall until you see a boulder. When you do, throw a Bombchu up to that boulder to explode it. When it is exploded, a ray of light will come in through the hole in the wall and bring the sun in the middle of the room to life. Now, unlock the door in the room with your Small Key, and you'll be in another new room of the temple. In this room, drop down to the area below and then look on the left side of the big statue in the room and you should see a golden eye switch.

When you do, shoot it. A chest spawns to the east of where you are on a small platform below the statue, so go over there and open it to get the Compass! Once you have the Compass, head north of the chest to the locked door, then use Din's Fire to melt the frozen golden eye switch. This will unlock the door to the next room, so enter it. In this room, apporach the pit to the north, then look down in the pit; you should see a golden eye switch. When you do, shoot it, and a chest will drop down, which contains yet another Small Key. Once you have that, exit this room, back into the previous room. Back in the previous room, head down the stairs, then head west and climb the wall there, back up to the previously visited platform. Once there, head up the stairs a bit, but not all the way, then backflip onto the Time Block there.

Once you are on the Time Block, play the Song of Time when Navi turns green. If done correctly, another Time Block will appear to the north of the one you are on now, so when it does, jump over there, with the small wooden crate in your hand. On the othe Time Block, jump left back onto the platform. On that platform, climb up the stairs to the top of the platform. There, play the Song of Time again when Navi turns green to cause yet another Time Block to appear. Jump on that one with the wooden crate in your hands, then use that Time Block to jump to the statue's left hand. On the statue's left hand, step on the blue switch, then place the wooden box on it to make the switch stay pressed.

Once that is done, enter the door at the very top of the platform where you just were, into the next area. In this next area, head up the stairs while avoiding the flamethrowers. When you reach the door, enter it, into the next area. In this area, head to where the ray of light from the hole in the wall is sticking out at. To get over there, jump on the small wooden platforms on the side of each of the wall platforms. When you reach the area with the ray of light, approach the two blocks with suns on them to your north, then pull them both to the ray of light. Once they are both within the ray of light, shoot the crystal switch in the area to dissipate the fire, then enter the door you have not been through yet, into the next room. In this room, walk up the stairs and kill the Big Skulltula. Then, continue heading north and unlock the door to the next room, using your last Small Key.

In this room, approach the Iron Knuckle and hit it with your sword to start a battle! The Iron Knuckle is tough, especially as Young Link. Let the Iron Knuckle break the pillars in the room to get Heart Containers to pop out! That's about the only way to win without Fairies, but hopefully you have some of those. Anyway, after defeating the Iron Knuckle enemy, head through the door and you'll be outside. Outside, Kaepora Gaebora will talk to you for the last time. When he goes, open the chest for the Silver Gauntlets! When you get the Silver Gauntlets, two witches, namely Koume and Kotake, will use magic on Nabooru and capture her! Now, warp back to the Temple of Time. Here, turn an adult. Then, play the Requiem of Spirit to return to Desert Colossus. Here, head into the Spirit Temple. This time as Adult Link.

Spirit Temple (Adult Link)

When you arrive in the Spirit Temple as Adult Link, head up the stairs and look up and in the hole in the ceiling, you should see a boulder; stand in the middle of the room and throw a Bombchu. If you threw it right, it will crawl up the wall and then make its way to the hole in the ceiling, thus hitting the boulder. When the boulder is cleared, Longshot to the black and white target in the hole, into the next area. In this area, push the huge stone block until it falls into a pit. When it does, follow the path, go through the door, into the next room. In this room, head west and then climb up the wall to the upper platform. Then, go through the door, into the next room. Here, stand a bit south of the sun in the middle of the room, then Longshot to the small chest on the small ledge above (Make sure you Longshot to the front of the chest.). When you reach the chest, open it for another Small Key.

Once you have that, hit the crystal switch in the room, then drop down to the area below. Once there, head through the door, back into a previously visited area. In that area, pound the rusted switch with the Megaton Hammer. Doing this will cause a chest, which you cannot get yet, to appear. Ignore the chest for now, and go through the door you just came out of, back into the previously visited room. In that room, hit the crystal switch, go through the door, back into the main room of the temple, where the big statue is. Once there, head up the stairs, then Longshot to the lit torch on the other side. Then, kill the Floormaster enemy, ignoring the three mini-Floormasters that spawn, and head up the stairs, and unlock the door to the next room. In this room, Longshot to the black and white target on the ceiling, then enter the door to the next room. In this next room, kill the four Beamos enemies, using Bombs.

A chest will then spawn, which contains a Bundle of Arrows, so open it if you'd like. Whether or not you open the chest, play the Song of Time below the Time Block that's floating in the air (Navi will turn green, so you'll know when to play it.). Once you do that, the Time Block on the ground in the room will disappear, and will appear underneath the one you are beside. When it appears there, stand beside the blue switch that was revealed when you made the Time Block disappear earlier. Once there, play the Song of Time again to make the Time Block appear on the switch again. When it does, play the Song of Time below the Time Block in the air again and then the Time Block covering the blue switch will appear underneath the one you are standing beside.

On the block is a wooden crate, so jump onto it and grab the block, then step on the blue switch, then put the wooden crate on it. When the crate is on the switch, enter the unexplored door, into the next room. In this room, kill the two Dinolfos enemies, then attack the chest in the room to unlock the door to the next room. Enter the door. In this next area, use the Lens of Truth to reveal the invisible Floormaster enemy. Kill it, then kill the three parts it splits into. Once that is done, the door in the room will open, so enter it, into the next room. In this room, approach the Iron Knuckle and hit it to start a fight. Luckily, this one is much easier as Adult Link. Defeat it the same way you did the other one as Young Link.

Once you defeat the Iron Knuckle, enter the door behind where the Iron Knuckle was sitting. You'll be outside. Outside, open the chest for the Mirror Shield! When you have the Mirror Shield, head back inside where the Iron Knuckle was. There, exit that room, back into the previous area. Here, walk down the stairs and go through the door, back into the next previously visited room. There, kill the two Dinolfos enemies, then approach the Time Block and play the Song of Time when Navi turns green to make the Time Block disappear to the locked door in the room. After the Time Block moves, a ray of light is revealed, so stand in the midst of that ray of light, and aim the Mirror Shield at the sun on the wall.

Doing this will unlock the door to the next room, so play the Song of Time once more when Navi turns green to move the Time Block back, but make sure that you aren't standing in the ray of light, or it won't work. When the Time Block is back in the ray of light, enter the door to the next room. In this room, freeze the Gibdo using Sun's Song, then open the chest for the Boss Key! Now, exit this room, back into the previous room. Once there, exit the room, and make your way back to the main room of the temple, where the big statue is.

Once there, drop down to the statue, then shoot the three unlit torches in the room (You'll see them, as they are on pillars.) with Fire Arrows, but do it quickly, as the fires will quickly dissipate! When you shoot the torches, a door will open. To get to it, head north and climb the wall, back onto the platform we've been on numerous times in the temple. Once on that platform, climb the stairs, then use the Longshot on the lit torch on the other side. Once you reach the other side, climb down the stairs and enter the door you haven't yet, into the next room. In this room, wait until the Wallmaster comes down. When it does, kill it, then defeat the two Stalfos enemies in the room.


When they are defeated, aim the Mirror Shield at one sun in the room. It will disappear, and a Wallmaster will come down to beat you. Once you kill that Wallmaster, aim the Mirror Shield at the other sun, and another Wallmaster will come down. Kill it as well, then aim the Mirror Shield at the last sun in the room. Defeat the Wallmaster that comes down and the gate in the room will open, so drop down into the area below. There, head north through the door, while avoiding the spiked traps. In this next room, collect the two Silver Rupees in the room, then bomb the boulder in the middle of the room to reveal a rusted switch. Pound it with the Megaton Hammer to cause the pillar of water in the room to go down. When it does, go onto the pillar of water and collect the Silver Rupee. Then, go into the room ahead, which is the first room of the entire temple.

Once there, head to the entrance of the temple, but don't exit. Instead, break the two boulders on each side with the Megaton Hammer to reveal the last two Silver Rupees. Collect them, and a chest will fall down, which contains a Small Key. Once you have that, Longshot to the black and white target in the hole in the ceiling, then backtrack to the room with the big statue. There, head west and climb the wall, back up to the platform. Then, climb the stairs and Longshot to the lit torch on the other side of the room. Once there, climb the stairs and enter the room at the top. In this previously visited area, unlock the door to your left with a Small Key. Then, in this next room, kill the Keese and Fire Keese enemies, then climb the moving wall to the top, but on the way, be sure to collect the five Silver Rupees. At the top, kill the Torch Slug enemy, and enter the next room. In this next room, head up the stairs and step on the Triforce pad. Then, play Zelda's Lullaby to open the door to the next room.

Enter that door, and in this area, drop down to the area below where the big mirror is. Once there, roll against the leftmost crates to reveal a rusted switch; pound it with the Megaton Hammer once it is revealed. Then, enter the door it unlocked, into the next room. In this room, go through the connecting rooms, killing all the enemies you come across. Once all the enemies are out of the way, use the Lens of Truth to reveal a hidden chest to the south of the mirror that is on fire. Open that chest for another Small Key. Now, step into the first room of the rooms that connect to each other and stand in the ray of light and aim the Mirror Shield at the sun on the wall, which is above you.

When the light touches the sun, the sun will come to life! Once that is done, enter the next room in this connecting area, then push the mirror to the other mirror in the other room. Then, if the fire is not there on the other mirror (If it is, you will have to go back and light the sun in the previous chamber.), you'll have to bring the sun in the previous room back to life. Anyway, once the mirror is aimed at the mirror that had the fire around it before you put it out, quickly go over to that mirror and push it, so that the light is facing the big mirror in the previous room. When it is, go over to that area where the mirror is and stand in the ray of light and aim the Mirror Shield at the sun on the wall.

Doing this will cause piece of floor you are standing on to elevate to the statue room. In that room, wait until the Wallmaster enemy comes down. When it does, kill it, then aim the Mirror Shield at the statue's face to burn it. When the statue is burnt, a piece of grating will be revealed on the center of the statue's face, so Longshot there to open the grate. When the grate is opened, unlock the door with the Boss Key. In this next room, Koume and Kotake will summon the Iron Knuckle in this room.

This Iron Knuckle happens to be Nabooru. Anyway, defeat it like you did all the other ones. Once the Iron Knuckle is defeated, Koume and Kotake will brainwash Nabooru again! Enter the door behind the chair that the Iron Knuckle was sitting on. In this room, go north and through the door, into the next area. In this area, climb one of the walls, then go onto the middle platform. Koume and Kotake will attack you. Go ahead and check the Bosses section to see how to win. Once you win, the two witches will form into Twinrova!

To win the first part of the battle against Twinrova, when one fires an ice spell, deflect it with your Mirror Shield back at the other one that uses fire, and vise versa. Keep doing this until the two sisters decide to transform into Twinrova. When they do, the battle is pretty much the same, except there's one different thing: instead of deflecting the attack at the other one, you will have to absorb one of their spells that they throw at you three times. For example, if the one that uses ice throws an ice spell at you, absorb it three times with your Mirror Shield. When you have absorbed three spells, hold R and unleash the attack on Twinrova to stun her! When she is stunned, quickly run over to the platform where she's on, and chop her madly with your sword! This also works for the one who uses fire on you, too, and their attacks don't change, so keep doing that same process until you win! NOTE: Something I forgot to mention about the boss, sometime in the battle, she'll trick you and fire two fire or ice attacks, then fire the opposite spell, so be aware of that.


After defeating Twinrova, grab the Heart Container on the side platform, then save your game, and enter the blue portal. You will arrive in the Chamber of the Sages once more.
