Ganon's Castle Walkthrough for Zelda: Ocarina 3DS 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 3D Ganon's Castle Walkthrough.

When you arrive here, climb down the stairs and defeat the two Green Bubble enemies. Then, defeat the two Armos Statue enemies on the side pillars, then defeat the Iron Knuckle. Once they are defeated, the door to the next room opens up, so enter the door, into the next room. In this room, head left of the entrance in the room and enter the door with the orange symbol above it. This is the Spirit room, which resembles the elements found in the Spirit Temple. Anyway, when you arrive in the Spirit room, defeat the enemies in the room, then shoot the silver eye switch above the door that is not locked in the room. Doing this will cause an Iron Knuckle to drop down from the ceiling. Do not kill the Iron Knuckle; instead, let it break the chairs in the middle of the room, as when it does, a rusted switch is revealed.

Once the rusted switch is revealed, kill the Iron Knuckle, then use the Megaton Hammer on the rusted switch. Once that is done, enter the door to the next room. In this room, kill the Green Bubble enemy, then open the chest for Bombchus. Then, stand directly in the middle of the bars of the gate in this room, then throw a Bombchu up on the gate, and into the hole. If done correctly, the Bombchu will have went through the hole of the gate, went onto the wall, then hit the crystal switch on the ceiling. When the crystal switch is hit, enter the door to the next room of the tower. In this room, defeat the Green Bubble enemy. Once it is defeated, progress further in the room and take out the Gibdo enemy and the two Redead enemies. Once they are defeated, look up in the center of the room where you fight the Gibdo and Redead enemies, and you should see a web. When you see the web, shoot a Fire Arrow at it to melt it. Once the web is melted, a ray of light will shine into the room, so stand in the middle of the ray of light and then aim the Mirror Shield at the sun tiles on the wall. Note that one sun tile makes a Wallmaster come down, so take note of that.

Keep hitting the sun tiles with the Mirror Shield, then open all the chests in the room. The big chest contains the Golden Gauntlets, whereas one of the small chests contains a Small Key. Once you have acquired the treasure from the room, aim the Mirror Shield at the Spirit symbol above the locked door to hit a hidden sun tile. When that is done, the door to the next room will open, so enter it. In this room, shoot a Light Arrow at the core there to cause the Spirit Barrier to dispel! You will be warped back to the main room of the tower after that is done. Back in the main room, head east and enter the door with the green symbol above it. This is the Forest door, which, obviously, is supposed to represent the Forest Temple. In the Forest room, defeat the two Stalfos enemies, then equip the Iron Boots and look above the door to the next room, and you should see a lit torch. Longshot to that torch, then take the Small Key and enter the door to the next room. In this room, look left and shoot the eye switch behind the fan.

A chest will then spawn, which contains a Bundle of Arrows. Once you have that, shoot two Arrows at the Armos Statue on the platform to the north. If done correctly, the Armos Statue will explode AND kill the Beamos! Once that is done, wait until the fan beside the chest starts blowing. When it does, equip the Hover Boots and quickly let the fan blow you to the nearby platform. On that platform, L-Target the Beamos to the east on the middle platform, then throw a Bomb at it to defeat it. Once you defeat that Beamos enemy, hover onto that platform, then look around the room until you find a frozen golden eye behind a fan. When you do, shoot it with a Fire Arrow. Doing this will cause a small chest to spawn, so Longshot to it and open it for some Bombs. Once you have that, hover back onto the middle platform, then L-Target all the Beamos that are within your range (You can't reach the one in the corner yet.), and throw a Bomb at each one of them to defeat them. Once the Beamos enemies are defeated, hover onto the platform beside the locked door to the next room. On that platform, throw a Bomb to the last Beamos in the corner to defeat it.

When all of the enemies in the room are defeated, hover onto the platform that the last Beamos you destroyed was on, but only when the fan isn't blowing. When you are on that platform, equip the Iron Boots and play the Song of Time to make a Time Block appear. When it does, play the Song of Time again to drop an Armos Statue onto the ice block below, and onto the blue switch. The door to the next room will open, so enter it when the fan isn't blowing.. In this area, shoot a Light Arrow at the core to dispel the Forest Barrier! You will be warped to the main room again, so once there, head north of the Spirit door, climbing down and up the stairs you come across, until you come to a door with a red symbol above it. Enter that door when you come to it, which is the Fire room, which represents the Fire Temple. In the Fire room, equip the Goron Tunic. Then, jump onto the moving platform, then jump onto the left platform where the uppermost platforms are. On that left platform, jump to the other one, then the platform will rise up into the air, and you'll see a Silver Rupee. To get it, when the platform is beside it, backflip to it, but be very careful not to fall into the fire.

Once you collect the Silver Rupee, jump to the next moving platform that you haven't been on yet. On that platform, jump to the small platform with the Beamos and the huge black stone pillar. On that platform, kill the Beamos using a Bomb, then pick up the black stone pillar (Since you have the Golden Gauntlets, you can do this.). When you do, Link will throw the pillar into the lava behind him! When that is done, grab the second Silver Rupee underneath where stone pillar used to be. Now, jump onto the moving platform, the onto the nearby platform to the north of the one you were just on, then jump to the second one. The second platform will rise up, so when it is at ground level, Longshot to the black pillar with the black and white target on it. Once on top of that, jump to the third Silver Rupee on the nearby higher piece of platform.

Once you obtain the third Silver Rupee, jump to the moving platform to your north, then ride it to the next Silver Rupee. Once you have that Silver Rupee, jump to the platform to the left, defeat the two Torch Slug enemies, then pick up the black stone pillar to throw it into the lava. Once that is done, Longshot back to the black pillar with the black and white target on it. Once you are on top of the black pillar, jump on top of the higher platform where you collected the third Silver Rupee, then use the Hover Boots and hover onto the platform to your north. When that platform starts to rise, jump to the black pillar in the lava and collect the last Silver Rupee. Once you collect the Silver Rupee, Longshot to the black pillar with the black and white target on it, next to the door to the next room. Once you reach the platform, enter the door into the next room.

Here, shoot a Light Arrow into the core to dispel the Fire Barrier! As always, you'll be warped back into the main room. Back in the main room, head east and enter the door with the purple symbol above it. This door is the Shadow door, which resembles the Shadow Temple. In the Shadow room, kill the Green Bubble enemy using an Arrow, then look to the right of where the Green Bubble was and shoot the Bomb Flower on the small platform there with an Arrow. Doing that will cause a chest on the platform, so Longshot over to that chest and open it to get a Bundle of Arrows. Once you have that, use the Lens of Truth to reveal a huge platform in the center of the room that is moving.

Wait until that platform comes as close to the platform you are on now as possible, then use the Hover Boots to get on it. When you are on that platform, collect the Silver Rupee, then ride it to the platform with the Bomb Flower. When you are on the Bomb Flower platform, collect the Silver Rupee there. Then, get onto the huge platform again, then hover onto the platform with the Beamos. There, use a Bomb to kill the Beamos, then collect the Silver Rupee that he was guarding. Then, shoot a Fire Arrow at the unlit torch on the ground. Doing this will cause an ice block to appear to your north, so jump onto that ice block, then go onto the platform with the two Beamos enemies. On that platform, kill the two Beamos enemies using Bombs, then look under the ice block; you should see a golden eye switch, so shoot it when you do. After you shoot the golden eye switch, a chest will spawn, which contains a Small Key, so open it. After that, head east of the chest and then use the Lens of Truth to reveal an ice bridge.

Go across the ice bridge and then go onto the platform with the Beamos enemy. On that platform, bomb the Beamos to kill it, then collect the Silver Rupee that was under it. When you collect that, head back onto the platform with the chest, then use the Lens of Truth to reveal another icy bridge to the west of the chest. Cross that one, then you'll come to a guillotine; wait until it rises up, then cross the rest of the icy bridge to the door to the next room, collecting the last Silver Rupee along the way. When you reach the door, enter it.

In this area, shoot a Light Arrow into the core to dispel the Shadow Barrier! Then, in the main room, head east and go down the stairs, then enter the door with the blue symbol above it, which is the Water room. This room is not like the Water Temple, so don't worry. Anyway, when you arrive in the Water room, kill the Freezzerd enemies in the room, then head east of the pillar of water with the Blue Fire in it, and defeat the Dead Hand. Doing so will cause the pillar of water in the room to go down for a few seconds, so quickly run over there and stock up all your Empty Bottles on Blue Fire. When you are full on Blue Fire, head north to the cluster of red ice. Once there, melt it with the Blue Fire, then unlock the door to the next room, using your Small Key. In this room, kill the Keese enemies (One of them is invisible.), then collect the available Silver Rupees in the room.

When you collect them, we'll have to push the ice blocks in this room around, so start by pushing the block near the locked door north to the cluster of red ice. Once the block is there, climb it and melt the red ice, using Blue Fire. Once that is done, push the block east into the pit, then it'll return back to its normal position. Now, push the block that you just pushed a minute ago east to the ice rock. Then, push it to the east again, and into the pit there. Once the block is in the pit, push the other block in the room east to the ice rock. Then, push it to the west to the next ice rock. After that, push the block to the north, onto the area below the platform with the one block of red ice. Once the block is below that platform, climb on top of it, then jump onto the platform with the red ice, then melt it. Now, collect the last Silver Rupee after melting the red ice!

Once you collect all the Silver Rupees in the room, jump onto the platform with the door to the next area. In this room, shoot a Light Arrow at the core to dispel the Water Barrier! Back in the main room, head to the only one left, which is the door with the yellow symbol above it. To get to it, though, when you reach the black stone pillar, grab it, and Link will throw it and break it, thus giving us access into the Light room. This, I guess, is supposed to resemble a mixture of all the dungeons you've played in the game, or the dungeons you had to complete as Young Link. Anyway, in the Light room, defeat the Dinolfos enemy, then defeat the Torch Slug enemies, then go into the next room. Here, step on the Triforce pad and play Zelda's Lullaby to spawn a chest; open it for a Recovery Heart, which you probably need at this point.

After that, unlock the door to the next room. In this next room, be very careful of the rolling boulder, and avoid it as best you can, as your main objective is to defeat the Beamos on the high platform in the center of the room. Once the Beamos is defeated, Longshot to the black and white target above where it was. On that platform, go directly north and drop off the platform, then unlock the nearby locked door, using your last Small Key. In this next room, kill the Skulltula enemy on the left yellow flame, then hit the crystal switch on the right yellow flame. After that, walk through the invisible wall, into the next area. In this area, shoot a Light Arrow at the core to dispel the Light Barrier!

Once you warp back to the main room, since all the Barriers are dispelled, go across the room, heading up the stairs, until you come across that bridge we saw in the cutscene after dispelling the Light Barrier. When you come across the bridge, cross it, then enter the next room. In this unexplored room, defeat the Keese enemies while heading up the stairs to the next room. In this room, kill the two Dinolfos enemies, then enter the next room. In this room, head up the stairs, then enter the door to the next room. In this next new room, defeat the two Stalfos enemies, then open the chest now that the fire is dissipated to get the Boss Key! Once you have the Boss Key, enter the door to the next room.

Here, go up the stairs and then enter the door at the end. In this next room, defeat the two Iron Knuckle enemies, but be sure to defeat them one at a time, otherwise it's very difficult. Once the Iron Knuckles are defeated, enter the door to the next room. Here, head up the stairs, as usual, then unlock the door at the end. In this next room, enter the door, into yet another new room. In this room, head up the stairs and enter the door into the next room. Here, you'll meet Zelda and Ganondorf, as a cutscene commences. Eventually, you'll have to fight Ganondorf.....


To kill Ganon :

This may be one of the toughest bosses in the game. You need to equip the Master Sword. Climb up the pillar and onto one of the side platforms. Look directly at Ganon and wait until he shoots energy at you. Deflect his energy with your sword. He will keep hitting it back. After you hit him, shoot him with a Light Arrow, run over to him and hit him with your sword. Keep repeating the process until he dies.

He will make the castle fall with his last remaining energy. Follow Zelda until you get to the bottom. She will talk to you.

Congratulations, you have beaten a very difficult game.......

Now to fight Ganon for the last time (we promise). The objective is to hit his face with light arrows, then hit his tail with something when he is stunned. Keep doing this until the fire lowers, then get the Master Sword. If you ever run out of something, lure him to a block and he will destroy it, sometimes leaving many items.

Now keep doing the same thing until he is stunned. Zelda will shoot energy at him. She will tell you to deliver the final blow to Ganon. Hit him with your sword. This is the end of the game.

Thank you for visiting Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time Central.
