Special Sub-Topic: Where In Hyrule Would You Find...?
|Where in Hyrule would you find ... the Mother-and-Child Rocks?|
Zora's Domain. The Mother-and-Child Rocks were two rocks that jut out of the water in the basin of Zora's Domain, with one being taller than the other, symbolizing the mother and child. Around this rock formation was the only place where Reekfish could be caught, using the coral earring lure, given to Link by Prince Ralis. Link had to fish for a reekfish around these rocks to be able to track its scent in his wolf form through the desolate Snowpeak.
|Where in Hyrule would you find ... the Skull Kid?|
Sacred Grove. The Skull Kid was an unusual creature that summoned Puppets to do his bidding in the Sacred Grove. He led Link around the grove in a game of hide-and-seek, blowing his trumpet occasionally to summon more Puppets. Link visited the Sacred Grove twice - first to retrieve the Master Sword, and second to gain access to the Temple of Time.
|Where in Hyrule would you NOT find ... Hyrule Field?|
Ordona Province. Hyrule Field was a large open field that connects the three provinces of Faron, Eldin and Lanayru. It could take some time for Link to cross from one part to another on his own, so summoning Epona using the grass whistles was handy for crossing from one province to another quite quickly. Hyrule Field played an instrumental role in the game, as several important points in the game occurred here. First was rescuing Colin from King Bulblin, who kidnapped him from Kakariko Village; second was protecting Telma, Ilia and Prince Ralis from enemies as they ride from Hyrule Castle Town to Kakariko Village in search of Renado's aid; and third was where Ganondorf is defeated at the end of Zant's invasion.
|Where in Hyrule would you find ... the last shard of the Mirror of Twilight?|
City in the Sky. The ancient goddesses of Hyrule created the Mirror of Twilight as a way of imprisoning the Dark Interlopers in the Twilight Realm. Zant shattered the Mirror into four pieces, and scattered them across Hyrule, to prevent Link and Midna from finding him in the Twilight Realm. The pieces were eventually recovered by defeating powerful Twilit creatures, and assembled at the Mirror Chamber at the top of Arbiter's Grounds.
|Where in Hyrule would you find ... Jovani?|
Castle Town. Jovani was a man found in Castle Town who had been turned to gold. When Link visited in Wolf form, he honed his senses and defeated the Poe that was in the room. Jovani informed Link that he sold his soul to the Poes in exchange for immense wealth, but unfortunately got turned to gold too. When Link defeated a Poe in Wolf Form, he ripped out the Poe's soul, and kept it. Upon returning to Jovani with 20 Poe Souls, Jovani regained the ability to move, and rewarded Link with a bottle of the Great Fairy's tears. By killing all the Poes and returning the souls to Jovani (60 in total), Link received a rare Silver Rupee, which was worth 200 Green Rupees.
|Where in Hyrule would you find ... the Poe Scent?|
Arbiter's Grounds. The Poe Scent is acquired during Link's journey through Arbiter's Grounds in search of the Mirror of Twilight. In the lobby of Arbiter's Grounds, four Poes stole the flames that open the door to the next chamber, and disappeared to other parts of the dungeon. Link defeated one of them in his Wolf Form to learn the Poe Scent, so he could track down the remaining three and retrieve the flames. This allowed access to the boss of the dungeon, Stallord.
|Where in Hyrule would you find ... Fyer and Falbi's Watertop Land of Fantastication?|
Lake Hylia. Fyer and Falbi's Watertop Land of Fantastication was an attraction in the Lake Hylia area that played a vital role in Link's adventure. Fyer manned the cannon on the lake, and Falbi was found high above Lake Hylia in a hut where he offered a Flight-by-Fowl game. Fyer received a memo from Auru, via Link, which allowed Link to travel to the Gerudo Desert in what Fyer called the "Oasis Flight". Later in the game, Fyer's cannon skills were called upon to repair the Sky Cannon found in Renado's Basement so Link could fly to the heavens and reach the City in the Sky. Falbi allowed Link to pick up a Cucco and fly down to the "Isle of Riches" in Lake Hylia where many treasure chests sat.
|Where in Hyrule would you find ... Impaz?|
Hidden Village. Impaz was the remaining inhabitant of the Hidden Village, after the Bulblins invaded and took over. Once the twenty Bulblins were removed by Link, Impaz said that she looked after Ilia and helped her through to Castle Town. She gave Link Ilia's Charm, which helped to restore Ilia's memory. Once the Dominion Rod was obtained in the Temple of Time, Link showed it to Impaz and received the Ancient Sky Book.
|Where in Hyrule would you find ... Sera's Sundries?|
Ordon Village. Sera's Sundries was found in Ordon Village, and was where Link bought the slingshot very early in the game. However, Sera wouldn't sell anything because she had lost her cat. After searching around the village, the cat was found at the edge of the water, staring at the fish. Once Link obtained the fishing rod from Uli, he caught a fish where the cat was, and the cat ran off home with it. Sera, happy that her cat had returned, rewarded Link with a free Bottle of Milk, and allowed him to purchase items in her shop.
|Where in Hyrule would you find ... the missing part of the Bridge of Eldin?|
Gerudo Desert & Gerudo Mesa & Desert Province. When Link defeated the King Bulblin on the Bridge of Eldin, and crossed over to Lanayru Province, the middle part of the bridge was teleported away to another part of Hyrule, preventing Link from crossing to Hyrule Field. The missing part was later found in Gerudo Desert, atop Gerudo Mesa, where it had fallen. Midna teleported it back to its proper place, revealing the entrance to the Cave of Ordeals, whose entrance had been covered by the bridge portion. The Cave of Ordeals had fifty rooms jam-packed full of monsters, with Great Fairies being encountered every ten rooms. Upon completion of the Cave of Ordeals, Great Fairy Tears were released at every Spirit Spring, for Link to retrieve whenever he wished.
