                    Chapter 1: The Starting of a New Destiny

Deep in the southernmost region of the kingdom of Hyrule lies a village by the 
name of Ordon. Cradled in the scenic beauty of pristine farmland, the villagers 
of Ordon make a living by raising livestock. Among the villagers is a boy known 
as the most skillful rider in all the land. A boy who, it is expected, will one 
day take over the responsibility of leading Ordon as the village chief. His 
name is Link...

Trusted and liked by all the villagers, Link is especially loved by the other 
children of Ordon, among whom he holds unofficial status as the leader of the 
pack. Link spends his days as a ranch hand and learns the ways of the sword 
from the village's lone swordsman, Rusl, in his spare time. He often displays 
his newly honed skills to the village youths, which makes him even more popular.

One day Link is showing off his swordsmanship as usual, when a monkey 
appears. "Hey! That's the monkey that's been causing trouble all over the 
village! Let's get him," cry the children. They run after the monkey into the 
forest. Link rushes into the heart of the woods after them and is shocked to 
find that the dark thickets are teeming with countless monsters. After fighting 
his way through their ranks, Link rescues the child and the monkey from the 
cage where they are held captive.

Until now, the forest had always been a safe place...

The next day, after much encouragement by Rusl, Link prepares to set out and 
deliver the village's tribute to Hyrule Castle. Having never visited the castle 
before, Link is in high spirits as he prepares for his journey, but when his 
childhood friend Ilia notices a wound on Epona's haunch, she gives Link an 
earful for being so careless with his horse. In a huff, Ilia leads Epona away.

Link tracks down Epona and Ilia at the mystical spring nearby and attempts to 
apologize for injuring Epona. But no matter how many times he says he's sorry, 
Ilia simply refuses to forgive Link. Then Colin, a young boy from the village 
how idolizes Link, steps forward to mediate the situation. Thanks to Colin's 
explanation, Link is finally able to get Ilia to drop her guard and talk with 
him. Having warmed back up, Ilia tells Link, " Come back safely, and don't do 
anything reckless!"

Just then...

A monster astride a huge boar comes crashing out of the forest. The fearsome 
monster and its mount break through the gate to the spring and attack the 

Caught off guard by the sudden assult, Link is helpless to stop the monster 
from delivering a blow that renders him unconscious. Through the fog of his 
half-conscious mind, Link watches Colin and Ilia get swept off by the monster...

            get to one of the leg shackles and put on the Iron Boots and pull.

            the second Fused Shadow. Talk to Darbus afterwards and he won't

             Iron Boots on, use the Clawshot and grapple the eye, lock-on first,
             and shash it (if your lucky, you'll get more than 2 hits). After
             the assult, he'll bring out Water Bombs to protect the eye.

              fast you must, because if he gets to you, your fish food, so lock-
              on to his eye and fire the Clawshot. If you latch onto it, slash
              with your sword. He'll throw you off when you get done. Repeat

             hinder your chances of attacking Stallord. And the Mini-Spinners
             are a pain as well, to avoid them, jump off the rail and get back
             on it. Hit Stallord's spine to damage him, but he'll summon more
             Zombies to protect him. Continue to defeat him...but is he dead?

             (Battle 2) To defeat the final form of stallord, get on the Spinner
             and get to the rail, eventually, you'll get to him. Avoid his
             attacks by jumping off from rail to rail. When he get's in front of
             Link, jump off to hit him. Slash the sword sticking out from his
             head. After that, he'll start bringing out Mini-Spinners. Avoid
             them by jumping off from rail to rail. he'll bring out more Mini-

Temple 5: Snowpeak Ruins

What Form: Human
Description: (Battle 1) To free Yeta from the Mirror's Power, use the Ball and
             Chain to hit Blizzeta, but be warned that she'll move towards you
             after each hit. Later, she'll have spikes formed around Blizzeta's
             shell, which makes her more faster, and starts shooting those Ice
             Monsters at you (but soime drop hearts, so get them when your low
             on health). Repeat to beat this form.

             (Battle 2) You need to keep running so you don't get hit by the
             falling pillars that follow Blizzeta, when it's over, quickly
             destroy some with the Ball and Chain so you'll have a chance of
             escape when she attacks. The remaining Pillars will surround you
             so watch the floor to find an opening, when they fall, get out
             of the way so she misses. Hit her with the Ball and Chain to damage
             her. Repeat the process to free Yeta and get another Heart

              aim for the eye, but be fast, or she'll shoot out a beam causing
              minor damage. When you hit her with the arrow, use the Dominion
              Rod to hit her. When she gets up, get out of the way or you'll
              get hit, but it causes 1/4 damage. She'll then bring out spiders
              hinder your chance of attacking, so mow them down with the
              Spinner. Repeat the process to defeat Armogohma, but there is
              something strange after the fight...

              (Battle 2) On the cut-scene with Link putting the Master sword
              away, he gets a look of surprise to see Armogohma still alive!
              But instead of attacking you, she runs AWAY from you, with the
              spiders protecting her. Just one hit with your sword on her eye
              will kill her. Another Heart Container and the second Mirror
              Shard will be yours. This is the wierdest boss sequence, but it
              is very hilarious, due to the music with her running away.

Temple 7: City in the Sky
Boss: Argorok
Type Of Boss: Twilit Dragon
Item(s) You Need: Double Clawshots and Iron Boots
What Form: Human
Description: (Battle 1) Put on the Iron Boots and use the Double Clawshots to
             get to a pillar. Wait to see Argorok and grapple to his tail.
             Repeat to beat this form. (Short, isn't it?)

             (Battle 2) On the cut-scene, flying plants will emerge from the
              ground, so you know what that means: an air-borne fight. It's
              almost like fighting Morpheel, but not in the water. Use the
              Double Clawshots to get to a flying plant (but make sure the Iron
              Boots are off) and grapple to plant to plant til he attacks, so
              when you get behind him, lock-on to his back and attack. Put on
              the Iron Boots when you land so you won't get blown away and get
              to the top again. But becareful because he'll start attacking
              twice, so when you avoid the first attack, go the opposite
              direction when he attacks again to get behind him. Repeat the
              process to defeat Argorok and get another Heart Container and the
              final Mirror Shard.

Temple 8: Palace of Twilight
Boss: Zant

Item(s) You Need: Gale Boomerang, Iron Boots, Zora Armor, Double Clawshots,
                  Hero's Bow, and Ball and Chain
What Form: Human
Description: (Battle 1) Zant has many battle sequences involving going back to
             certain rooms you've been to, so be prepared. This room will
             resemble Diababa's Room. While avoiding his attack, use the Gale
             Boomerang to bring him down, then attack away. Repeat to beat
             this area.

             (Battle 2) This room will resemble Goron's Mine's Mini-Boss'. Put
             on the Iron Boots IMMEDIATELY because he'll start jumping on the
             edge of the arena, and ends it with a fury of Twilight Balls. Take
             off the Iron Boots and attack. Put them on again and he'll start
             warping. Repeat to beat this area.

             (Battle 3) This room will reflect Morpheel's Room. Put on the Zora
             Armor and put on the Iron Boots, a statue of Zant (ugly, ain't it?)
             will appear. When the door opens, he'll start attacking, but with
             the water's gravity, it will go slow, so side-step to avoid and
             quickly use the Double Clawshots to get him towards you and slash
             him. He'll go back inside and the statue will sink. Take off the
             Iron Boots and swim to the middle of the arena and 4 Statues of
             Zant will emerge. Use the C-Stick to find out which one he'll come
             out of. When you see him, swim to where he is fast, while avoiding
             his attack, put on the Iron Boots, and if your fast enough, use
             the Clawshot to bring him to you and attack. This area's clear.

             (Battle 4) This room will reflect the Forest Temple's Mini-Boss'
              Room. Take off the Iron Boots and follow him. When he starts
              attacking, roll into the pillar he's on, then hit him with the
              Hero's Bow, and slash away. Repeat to beat this area.

             (Battle 5) This room will resemble Blizzeta's Room. He'll grow
             huge and hover in the air. Keep running around the room til he
             lands, then use the Ball and Chain to hit his foot. He'll shrink
             down to size so slash him. Repeat to beat this area.

             (Battle 6) This room...Sort of...Resembles the front of Hyrule
             Castle. He has only 3 types of attacks, but performs them at
             random. He'll start swinging his Duel Blades slowly, so avoid him.
             The other two is him slashing fast, so evade him, and the final is
             him doing a Spin Attack rapidly while moving fast, evade that
             at all times. Whe you take him down the first time, he'll start
             warping while doing the attacks, so be on guard. Zan't's comos will
             end when he does a Spin Attack (at some point) so attack him fast.
             Repeat the process to beat Zant. A Heart Container and all 3 Fused
             Shadows will be yours again.

Description: Ganondorf sure knew what he was doing when he took over Zelda's
             lifeless body for he knew Link can't kill her for if he does, he
             kills Zelda in the process, but he's in for a surprise! To save
             Zelda, you need to reflect her Energy Ball right back at her (like
             in Ocarina of Time). She has other attacks as well, one is her
             tackling you with her blade, so evade it, the second one is the
             one you need to be aware of: when the camera get's back, she's
             gonna use it, she'll form a triangle beneath Link, so evade it
             fast! Repeat the process to save Zelda, but the fights only begun!

              To beat this form, evade when the battle starts because he'll
              start charging at you, then he'll disappear. There are two types
              of attacks when doing this: 1) he'll come out of a portal, so use
              the C-Stick to find the portal, get out the Hero's Bow and when
              you see a portal with blue outlines, he's coming out of that one.
              Fire at the Shining Mark on his head to bring him down and attack
              his stomach 2) he'll appear above you and Body Slam you. Later,
              he'll start avoiding your arrows and tries a Body Slam on you,
              so transform into Link's Sacred Beast Form. Wait for him to come
              out of a portal, lock-on to him and hold down the A Button and
              move the Analog Stick either Left or Right to throw him down (they
              have the same effect) and attack. Repeat to beat this form.

              you'll be knocked off Epona (a little embarrencing since Zelda's

              times drop hearts. Lock-on to Ganondorf til Zelda fires a Golden

              to use a Jump Attack when "A Chance" appears on the bottom screen,
              keep pressing "A" til you succeed and he's open for a direct
              attack. Becareful of his attacks. 1) he'll jump in the air and do
              a Spin Attack, 2) Kick you leaving you open and attack, 3) stabs
              you. Repeat the process til you knock him on his back, then use
