Fire Temple

Go up the stairs, hang a left, and enter the door. Short story sequence here. Now start hopping stones and make your way to the left of this chamber. There’s a cage there with a Goron in it. Step on the switch to release him and nab the small key in the treasure box behind him. Now hop on back to the door you came in and exit this chamber. Walk straight across to the door on the other side and enter it. Now in this large chamber make use of the bridge and platforms to make your way to the left side of the chamber. There is a small hallway and a door there. Don’t panic if you fall in the lava, your new tunic keeps you from getting hurt at all for a few seconds to give you time to get back up. Anyway, go through this hall and door, and down the next hall to another Goron. Free him and get the key from his treasure box. Now go back to the big chamber and hop your way across to the other side (the right side). Blow open the wall to find another Goron and key. Now finally make your way to the other end of the chamber from where you came in to where there’s a locked door. Go through and you’re at the Fire Elevator.

In this interesting room, slide down the ramp and then climb up the fence. Climb up to the top of the fence and kill the two bats there, then drop down to the platform just below you and push the movable block off of the edge. Then fall down and land on the moveable block and you’ll be shot up into the next room. Go through the locked door here into the green room. Climb up the ledges and kill the little torch slugs. Jump across to where you see a white diamond thing and a movable block. Push the movable block off the side, then drop down and pull it until it stops. Climb up onto it, hop over to on top of the Goron’s cage, and climb up the fence. Now walk forward all the way until you hit the wall, and stand on about the forth tile from the cliff edge. Get out a bomb and throw it towards the edge. It will drop down and set off that diamond thing (it’s a switch) which will make the pillar of fire temporarily disappear. Climb up the fence where the pillar of fire was and go through the door that’s up there.

Now you’re in the big boulder room. Turn right and keep going that way, dodging boulders, until you find another caged Goron. Get his key. Now as you exit his cage follow the left wall past a locked door (don’t go through it) until you reach the other side of the room and the second caged Goron of this room (he’s through a door that’s in an alcove that may be hard to see). Now on the way out of this room hug the right wall until you find that locked door and go through it. Here you’ll have to carefully walk across a walkway. If you look high above the blocked door you’ll see a gray eye tile. Shoot it with an arrow to unblock the door. Through the door is the Dungeon Map. Back in the narrow walkway room, go through the locked door. In this next room, which I later refer to as the fence room, walk along the stone path and jump over onto the fence. A flame will follow you. Just hurry forward hopping over to the next fence until you reach the unlocked door on the other side. Go through it.

Now you’re on the upper level of the big boulder room. Hop onto the platform in front of you and kill the torch slug, then use a bomb on the crack in the floor and climb down. Down here you can rescue the Goron from the green room and get another key, not to mention an easier way up later in case you fall down somewhere. Now climb back up and hop a few ledges to get to the switch that’s near you. This switch will free a Goron on the other side of the big boulder room. Hop ledges and make you way over to him and get his key. Now that you’ve got 2 more keys hop your way back to the door you came in. Look high up and to the left when facing the door and you should see a high ledge. There is a secret area up there. You don’t need to do this, but if you have the Scarecrow’s song you can. Play the Scarecrow’s song and hookshot to the scarecrow. Turn around and hookshot to the small floating platform. It will elevate you up to a secret area. Go through this area and you’ll pop out in a donut-shaped room. Step on the switch and hurry to the treasure chest (use your hookshot to get past the steep cliff). Open it to get 200 rupees. Go back down to where you played the Scarecrow’s song go in the door to go to the fence room. If you don’t have the Scarecrow’s song just go in the door and into the fence room.

This time, back in the fence room, jump your way across to the locked door. The last jump to get there seems impossible but it’s not. Just jump slantwise from the corner of the fence to the corner of the ledge and if you keep holding forward you’ll grab on to the ledge and pull yourself up. Go through the locked door. Follow the short corridor after it and you’ll find yourself in the giant fire maze chamber. Hop on down and head to the right. You’ll have to dodge spinning flame throwers, rolling boulders, and proximity sensitive flame walls to make your way to a door in the far right wall. The compass is through that door. Be wary of fake doors in here. They’ll hurt you if you try to open them. If you’re unsure put a bomb next to it to find out if it’s fake or not. Now head back to the starting point and then to the left side. Make your way through this maze to the locked door on the pillar in the middle of the chamber. Go through it and you’ll see a trapped Goron on your right. You can’t save him yet. Instead continue on and go out the door on the other side. Now you’re back on the right side of the maze. Make your way toward the right wall of the chamber where there’s a yellow switch. If you step on it the big fire wall on the opposite side of the room will disappear for a few seconds. Hurry (I know it’s hard to hurry in this maze, but you’ll have to) through to where the fire wall was and run past it before the time runs out. The door ahead is a fake. That said, blow up the door with a bomb and then go on in through the real door and face the first dancing fire-man mini-boss.

This mini-boss is really easy if you have bombs…otherwise he’s a lot harder, but I recently found out still possible to beat . All you have to do is throw a bomb at him. When it explodes he’ll shrink to a little helpless black ball. Slash him a couple of times and he’ll run away. Don’t chase him you can’t run fast enough. Instead, hold down B to start charging a spin attack, and walk the opposite direction he went. Eventually he’ll circle around the room and bump into you again. He’ll start running away again before he’s very close to you, but your fully charged spin attack has a good range. As soon as hear him make a scared noise indicating he’s about to

turn around let it go to teach him a lesson. If you’re low on magic, hide against the wall and he won’t see you. He’ll keep running past and as he does slash him with your sword. Now he’ll jump into the flame and become a dancing fire guy again. Use another bomb and repeat the process until he’s dead. If you run out of bombs you can use your hookshot to pull the little black guy out of the center of the fire dancing thing and hit him with your sword. Just wait on the steps until he stops skating around the room and use Z-targeting.

Now that he’s dead climb up onto the platform where the pillar of fire was and it will raise you up to the next floor. Go through the door to enter the second green room. Find the fence and climb up it, then drop a bomb down on the diamond switch and climb up the fence once the pillar of fire is gone (similar to the last green room). Go through the door up there to enter the large donut-shaped room. In here you’ll find a small yellow switch and a long circular stairway. You have to step on the switch and run up the stairway before the time runs out to open the treasure chest at the top. Of course this is pretty hard because the stairway is right on the edge of a huge pit. If you happen to fall you’ll be back where that Goron was that you couldn’t save before inside the pillar in the middle of the big fire maze chamber. You’ll have to make your way back up and try again.

Once you open the treasure chest you’ll get the Megaton Hammer. Now make your way down the narrow stairway to a block with a face on it. Hit it with the hammer and fall down the resulting hole. Now smash the statue with the hammer (this is harder than it sounds…try holding forward or sideways while swinging the hammer to hit it correctly). Now in the next room kill those annoying bats and then hit the small face tile with your hammer. Grab a crate, go down the stairs, and put the crate on the blue switch. Go through the door. In the next room hit the face square with your hammer, drop down, then hit the rusted switch with your hammer. Go in the door. Play the Song of Time to move the blue block down. Use it to jump to the other side and then hit the switch with your hammer. Go get the key from the now-freed Goron’s cage. Then climb back up to the door you came through using the blue block.

Back outside, hop over to another face block and hit it with your hammer. Make sure you have enough life to handle it and then drop down the hole. If you’re low on life there’s a fairy in a pot on the right side of this room once you’re down there. Use the hookshot to get to it. Anyway, exit out of this room and you’re back at the entrance. Go down the stairs and to your left is a statue thing. Destroy it with the hammer and go through the door behind it. Kill all the baddies in this room and go on to the next one. In here the floor tiles will raise up and try to attack you so watch out. If the Shield-eater gets your shield and tunic kill it quickly and you’ll get them back. Go on to the next room and you’ll face the second dancing fire man mini-boss. Kill him the same way as the first one. Go through the next door, smash the rusted switch with the hammer, and nab the boss key. Now go out the doorway ahead of you and you’re back at the entrance. Go up the stairs and through the left door, hop across to the boss door and go through. Now you’ll face...
