Mini-Boss: Grim Creeper

Grim Creeper uses a flute to summon six Big Keese. You have to kill all six before they fly off of the screen. Otherwise, all six will reappear afterward and you have to try again. After you have killed all six, a warp spot appears, and Grim Creeper runs away.

Get the Nightmare's Key

Go north. Push the two blocks toward the middle of the room, being careful to avoid the Spark spinning around one of the blocks. A chest appears. Open it to get the Nightmare's Key.

Reach the Nightmare

Hit the crystal switch before you leave the room where you got the Nightmare's Key. Then go south from the room where you got the Nightmare's Key, then go west until you see the Nightmare's Door. Open it and go through.

If you don't have a Secret Medicine, you can optionally get one. But if you already have one, don't get the second one, because you can only hold one at a time, so the second Secret Medicine would disappear.

To get the Secret Medicine, go north from here, then east and throw the two chess pieces to make them both stand up. However, there is a Beamos in the room that makes it very difficult to throw the chess pieces without getting hurt, so it might be best to avoid this.

In the room that you reached after going through the Nightmare's Door, go up the stairs in the corner of the room and use the hookshot to go across to the other side. Go south from there, then go up the stairs, then go up the ladder.

Evil Eagle

Evil Eagle swoops toward you. You can hit its beak with the hookshot, the boomerang, arrows, or the magic rod. With the magic rod, the eagle will be defeated in three shots. With arrows, it will be defeated in six shots. With other weapons, it takes eight hits. If you don't hit the eagle before it flies through you, you can raise your shield to protect yourself.

Stay near the center of the tower at all times. If the eagle comes down diagonally from above and stays at the side of the tower, run toward it and raise your shield, then start running toward the eagle. The eagle will make the wind blow, while also shooting sharp feathers at you. With your shield raised, you will be safe from the feathers, and if you start running toward the eagle while as close to the eagle as possible, you shouldn't get knocked off the tower. If you do get knocked off, you have to climb up and start the battle from the beginning.

Sometimes the eagle comes straight down from above. This means that it is going to attack with its claws rather than blowing wind at you. Try to hit the eagle's beak when it does this. Otherwise, raise your shield to protect yourself from that attack. Repeat the strategy to defeat Evil Eagle and get a Heart Container.

Get the Musical Instrument

Go back down the ladder and go to the door. Press up to go inside. Jump down the east ledge and go through the door, then go up and take the Organ of Evening Calm.

The next hint tells you to use the music of the Ocarina.

Find the Next Dungeon

Outside Eagle's Tower, jump off the right side of the ledge, then go east and into the cave. Follow the path. Eventually you reach some water. Go up the stairs in this screen, then go west until you see a house. Go west from the house, then use the hookshot to cross the bridge.

You find Marin stuck on the bridge! Use the hookshot on the rock on the left side of the bridge and you will catch Marin as you go past. After a cut scene, the Owl will tell you to go west and use an Ocarina song to open the next dungeon.

Go west and cut the bush, then go down the stairs. Go west and jump into the pit, and go down the stairs there. Use the hookshot to go across the gap in the next screen, then go outside.

Go west while avoiding the rocks, then go up the stairs and go east. Go up the stairs that you find there. From there, go west, and open the chest to get 50 rupees. You can lift the rock near that chest to find some stairs. Go down and use Magic Powder in the well. The Mad Batter will allow you to carry more bombs or arrows (depending on whether you have encountered the Mad Batter before).

When you're done, go back upstairs and go west. Here at Spectacle Rock, your path is blocked, so just jump off of the ledge. There is a cracked wall in the middle of the north wall, so bomb it and go through.

Go north, then equip your Mirror Shield and raise it, then walk north into the flames. The shield will deflect the flames so you can go north. At the top, go to the left and go up the stairs.

You emerge from Spectacle Rock. Go west, and follow the path. You will find a phone booth where you can talk to Ulrira if you wish. Go west from there and you find Turtle Rock. Play Frog's Song of Soul on the Ocarina to wake up the turtle. It will attack. It moves side to side, then it pauses, then it quickly moves toward you. Run away when it stops moving. Hit it with your sword whenever you get a chance. Eventually, it dies. After that, you can go into the eighth dungeon, Turtle Rock.
