Forest Temple Walkthrough for Zelda Ocarina 3D (Master Quest)

Walkthrough

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 Fire Temple Walkthrough.

When you arrive here, kill the two Skullwalltulas on the nearby vines to the east of the entrance to the temple, using your Hookshot. Once the two Skullwalltulas are elminated, climb up the vines and avoid the Skulltulas if you can. When you reach the top of the vines, get onto the wooden log there. Once you are on that, defeat the Skulltula enemy with your Hookshot. Now, jump to the log that the Skulltula was on before you killed it. On that log, step on the switch and a small chest will spawn. Hookshot to it and open it for a Small Key.

Once you obtain the Small Key, drop down to the area below. Then, head through the door, into the next area. In this area, take out the three Skulltula enemies using your Hookshot. Once they are defeated, open the door with your Small Key. In this main room of the temple, the four Poe sisters of the temple will come out of the four lit torches in the room. The torches will then become unlit! Once you regain control, head through the door directly to the north and enter it, into the next room. In this room, stand in front of the Time Block and play the Song of Time. Doing this will cause the Time Block to disappear, thus giving us access into the next room.

In this room, defeat the two Wolfos enemies and a chest will spawn which contains a Small Key. Open the chest, and exit the room. In the previous hallway, exit it, back into the main room. Back in the main room of the temple, head through the door to the right of where you exit the hallway at. In this next room, defeat the Stalfos enemy that comes up out of the ground. Once the Stalfos enemy is defeated, go through the door, into the next area. In this area, climb the nearby ladder. Then, take two lefts and you should see a blue stoned block. When you see it, pull it out to the center of the area. Then, head left to where the block was before you started pulling and pushing it, and follow the path to the other side. You will come across another block, so push it to the north as far as it can go.

Once the block is in place, go back to the tunnel that the block was originally in and climb the ladder to your left. When you climb the ladder, head left and then look north into the tunnel and you should see a red stone block. Pull it as far as it can go. Now, head back to the area below where the two blue stone blocks are. Once you are there, climb up the blue stone block in the indentation, to the next floor. On this floor, follow the path until you come across the red block that you were pulling earlier. When you come across it, push it to the north as far as it can go, into the indentation.

Once the block is in place, climb it up to the next floor. On the next floor, hit the nearby crystal switch with your sword, then follow the path to the north and east and climb up the ladder, to the next floor. Here, head north and ignore the Blue Bubble enemies, and use your Small Key on the locked door to open it, into the next area. In this next area, drop down to the area below and open the chest for the Boss Key! No, we are not going to fight the boss already (You wish, don't you? :P), so don't get all slaphappy.

Anyway, once you obtain the Boss Key from the chest, drop down the nearby hole, into the area below. Here, head to the nearby stairs you see and you will come across a Floormaster enemy. Defeat it, then defeat its three small hands it splits into. Once the Floormaster enemy is taken care of, head through the door, into the next area. In this area, head north past the first alcove. In the second alcove you come across is a door, so enter it, into the next area. Here, take out the Redead enemy and a chest will spawn. Open it to get another Small Key.

When you have the Small Key, exit this room, back into the previous area. In the previous area, head north through the unexplored door, into the next area. In this area, hit the nearby crystal switch. Doing this will melt the ice block in front of you, and also twist the corridor, which we will get to in a minute. Anyway, drop down to the area below and climb all the ladders and blocks until you come across the two Blue Bubble enemies you saw earlier. When you come across them, head through the door, into the twisted corridor area. Here again, head through the twisted corridor and then into the next room. In this next area, jump across the platforms and unlock the nearby door using your Small Key. In this next room, head through the area and then enter the door at the end, into the next room. In this room, avoid falling in the pit and defeat the Stalfos enemy.

Once that is done, a platform will come from above and cover up the hole, but you'll have to fight two more Stalfos! This time, if you don't kill them both fast enough, they will respawn, so be aware of that. Anyway, once the Stalfos enemies are defeated, a huge chest will spawn, which contains the Fairy Bow! Once you have obtained the Fairy Bow from the chest, head back to the previous room. In this room, shoot all three of the pictures that the Poe appears in with your Fairy Bow, but don't let her see you. Once you shoot all three paintings, the Poe will attack you. Defeat the Poe and a chest will spawn, which contains the Dungeon Map! When you have that, the red flame will light on the torch beside the chest! Head through the door, back into the room where you got the Fairy Bow at. Once there, head north of the chest, through the door, and into the next area. In this area, shoot all of the paintings with your arrows. Then, the Poe will go down to the area below, so follow it and defeat it. A chest then spawns, which contains the Compass of the temple. Once you have the Compass, the blue flame will be lit! Now, head all the way back to the main room of the temple.

Once there, look up with C until you see a golden eye switch above the tunnel in the room. When you do see it, shoot the golden eye switch with your Fairy Bow. Doing this will unlock the door to the next room, so enter it. In this room, take out the nearby Big Deku Baba enemy. Then, look directly above the door. You will see a Gold Skulltula on top of a black and white target. Kill it with the Hookshot, then use the Hookshot on the black and white target and you will be on a small ledge. On this ledge, play the Song of Time at the eastern edge of the ledge and some Time Blocks will appear. Jump across them and then when you reach the end, play the Song of Time again. Jump to the Time Block to your north.


Once you are on that Time Block, shoot the Skullwalltula on the vines there. Then, Hookshot to the very edge of the vines beside the platform that you see up there. If done successfully, you'll be on that platform. When you are, open the small chest for another Small Key. Once you have that, drop down to the area below. Now, head to the well to your north and get on it. Once you are on the well, shoot the golden eye switch under the water with your Fairy Bow. Once you shoot the golden eye, the water will drain in the well, so climb down the ladder and into the well. In the well, open the nearby chest for a Small Key. Once you have that, head north and grab the two Heart Containers there if you need them.

Regardless, climb the vines to the north, into the next area. In this area, head back to the main room of the temple and then all the way back to the room where you fought the second Poe. To get there, see the above part of the walkthrough for this temple. Once you reach that room again, climb the stairs until you come across a locked door. When you do, open it using your Small Key. In this next area, drop down to the area below and sit there until the Wallmaster comes after you. When it does so, kill it, then quickly climb the nearby stairs, into the next area. In this area, ignore the Green Bubble enemies and unlock the door using your last Small Key. In this room, step onto one of the rotating platforms and then jump to the platform with the wooden crate. Once you are on that platform, pick up the wooden crate and jump back to one of the rotating platforms.

Now, jump onto the blue switch on the center platform that is not rotating. Then, after you step on it, place the wooden crate on it. Once that is done, the torch beside the blue switch will light. Jump back onto one of the rotating platforms and wait until the platform is directly south of the frozen silver eye on the wall. When it is, quickly take out your Fairy Bow and shoot through the fire on the torch, and try and aim it at the frozen silver eye. If done correctly, the frozen silver eye will become unfrozen and the eye will close (Note that you can also use Din's Fire to melt the ice.). The corridor in the previous room will be twisted, so take the wooden crate off the blue switch.

Then, jump to the platform with the door and exit the room. In the twisted corridor, head through it, ignoring the Green Bubble enemies. When you reach the room where the Wallmaster comes down at, drop down the hole, into the area below. In this area, take out all the Skulltulas using your Fairy Bow. Once they are out of the picture, run north and step on the two switches. If you did not kill all of the Skulltula enemies, this will be a bit tougher. Once you step on both switches, open the small chest that spawns if you want a Bundle of Arrows, but I don't recommend it unless you absolutely need Arrows. Anyway, once both switches are pressed, head south and then east through the alcove and into the next area. In this area, head up the stairs and open the door, into the next room. In this room, drop to the ledge below and defeat the Deku Baba enemy.

Then, open the nearby chest for another Small Key. Once you have that, play the Song of Time when Navi turns green and jump on the Time Blocks. When you can't go any further, play the Song of Time again and jump up to the platform above you, using the Time Block. On this platform, head through the door, back into the checkered room we were just in a minute ago. Back in this room, kill all the Skulltulas. Then, run north to the locked door while avoiding the falling ceiling and Skulltulas. When you reach the locked door, unlock it using your Small Key. In this next room, shoot the Poe in the painting. When you do, several blocks will fall from the ceiling, and you'll be timed 1:00 to solve the puzzle. Push and pull the blocks against each other until they resemble the Poe in the painting. When they do, another Poe sister will appear.

Defeat her and the green flame will light the torch in the room. Head through the door, into the next area. In this hallway, head through the door, into the main room. In the main room, climb the railing and drop down to the area below. Here, approach the Poe on the ground and you'll have to fight her. This is the mini-boss of the temple, who is namely, Meg. She splits into fours.

She splits into fours and spins around in circles. Shoot an arrow at any of the Poes. If she turns red, you have hit her. Also, something I forgot to mention, use your shield to deflect her attacks.

Once you defeat Meg, the purple flame will light the last torch of the dungeon. If you can, pick up the Arrows she leaves behind before they disappear. Anyway, after Meg is defeated, head down the elevator and into the next room. In this room, push the walls in the room and head into each alcove, hitting the crystal switch, stepping on the switch, and shooting the golden eye that you come across. NOTE: To find the golden eye, you will have to look up with C. Once all of the switches are hit, the gate where the boss door is will be opened, so head through that newly revealed area and unlock the boss door with your Boss Key. In this room, head up the stairs and then onto the center part of the platform where the Triforce symbol is. Once you are there, try and leave the room and you'll be blocked off. Phantom Ganon will then appear and you'll have to fight him.

Phantom Ganon will start off by going into one of the pictures in the room. Two Phantom Ganon's will come out of two separate pictures, however, so to avoid confusion, shoot the one that is bright and a dark purple color with your Fairy Bow. This will mean you've hit Phantom Ganon. Do this two more times after you hit him once. Phantom Ganon will then get off the horse, and start shooting electrical fireballs at you. Deflect them back at him with your sword. When you stun him by deflecting the blasts, he'll fall to the ground. This is your chance to hit him. Keep hitting him and he will eventually get back up and shoot more fireballs. Repeat this process and eventually, he will attack you with a speed attack that can easily catch you off guard (it did me). Avoid that and then he will start firing fireballs again. This time, when you deflect one, you will have to deflect it about five times until he finally gets stunned. When he is stunned, slice away at him. Keep doing this, as his attacks won't change now, until you win. Note that a bottle also works to deflect Phantom Ganon's attacks, but in my opinion, it isn't worth it to use it.


 Once Phantom Ganon is defeated, grab the Heart Container, save your game, and head through the blue portal. You'll be warped back to the Chamber of the Sages.
