Part 9: Thieves' Hideout
Once you appear – head east through the door and follow the path until you come to the next door. A cutscene will ensue where you will meet Hilda as she saves you from Yuga – who has now summoned and merged with Ganon. Once you awake after this encounter – Link will be at the Blacksmith's house.
Exit the Blacksmith's house and head west into the Thieves' Town. Head north to the X marked on the map, which will be the entrance to the Thieves' Hideout. Speak with the entrance and you will have to select the correct parts to a song. The answers are below:
- a narrow path.
- really despair.
- to thievin'!
Once the entrance has opened be sure to enter. The guard will think Link is the new recruit that has arrived to take over duty. Now go through the door to the west. Merge with the wall to the north and travel between the bars. Pop off and open the chest for a Purple Rupee.
Exit back through the bars and hit the switch in the middle of the room. Slip through the bars on the west side and then go into the area with the statues. Pull them out and push one onto the switch that is in the northwest of the room.
Be sure to pull the second statue from the area and then hit the switch once more. Now push the second statue onto the switch near the door in the center of the room. Slip into the cell where you opened the chest earlier and stand on the last switch. This will unlock the door forward.
Slip between the bars and then go through the door that just opened. Ignore the switches in this room and continue north through the next door. Travel down the wire walkway – be careful not to fall – and merge with the western wall. Travel to the ledge to the north, pop off, and go through the door. Go up the stairs on the east in the next room for a chest with a Purple Rupee.
Now travel down the west wall across the moving floors to the south of the room. Go through the door and then climb up onto the moving floor. Merge with the wall at the end and then travel across to the stairs on the east side of the room. Hit the switch at the top of the stairs.
Fall down and attack the creature. It will turn into a bomb – simply toss it onto the south conveyor belt to hit the switch to open the door south. Go through the door and then travel to the southeast – go through this door. Now go through the door to the north between the mirrors.
You will find a Thief Girl locked inside the cell to the east. Slip between the bars and press the switch. Talk with the Thief Girl and then exit back through the bars. Now go through the newly opened door on the west of the room. Slip through the bars to the north and then use the creature to bomb the cracked wall to the north.
Go through the hole and head to the west and then to the south to find another room. Stand on the red tiles and hit the switch to be taken up a level. Walk over to the blue tiles and hit the switch to go up one more time. Now head north across the tops of the cells and fall into the one at the north of the room. Enter through the door to the north and prepare for a mini-boss.
Thieves' Hideout Mini-boss
The easy way to beat the Thieves' Hideout mini-boss is to stand near the door. Now simply continue attacking using the sword towards the creatures. This will protect Link and damage the foes. Repeat this several times and the mini-boss will be defeated. Open the chest for a small key.
Exit the room and use the switches to get to the top. Now fall off back into the center of the room. Use the small key to unlock the door of the cell the Thief Girl is located – talk to her and lead her out of the cell. Now go to the cell north of hers and slip between the bars. Open the chest for the compass.
Exit back between the bars and lead the girl to the north of the room. Make the girl stand on one of the switches and place Link on the other in order to open the door to the east – enter the door. Go north and a group of enemies will appear. Take the girl near the door you just entered from and leave her.
Now go to the end of the small hallway and continue attacking north until all of the enemies are defeated being sure none of them capture the girl. Go get the girl and go through the door to the north. Now travel south and across the wire walkway. Merge with the wall to go across the small gap – pop off and press the switch and then lead the girl across the new platform.
Travel to the south and then slip through the bars. Jump into the water and continue west and then go north up the stairs. Continue north until you find the wire walkway standing against the wall. Merge and then go behind the wire walkway – pop off in order to knock it down across the gap.
Lead the girl across and then place her on top of one of the two switches. Place Link on the other in order to remove some bars to the south. Swim through the water down the path to the south and then climb onto the ledge next to the blue tiles. Pull the lever and then jump back down. Travel north towards the room with the chest – slip between the bars to open it and get a Silver Rupee.
Go back between the bars and lead the girl down the south pathway back to the blue tiles. Use the switch to lower the blue tiles and then again to raise Link and the Thief Girl to the upper level. Lead her west across the small bridge and south onto the red tiles.
Merge with the south wall and travel to the east of the room to make it to another ledge near the door on the east. Pop off on the ledge and then travel southeast to find another wire walkway against a wall. Pop it off and then walk across it. Stand on the red tiles and hit the switch.

Travel down the path and open the chest for some Master Ore. Now go back south and to the east across the wired walkway. Go through the door to the north and then place the girl on the switch. Using Link – go up the stairs and merge with the wall to the south to cross the small gap.
Now travel north up the stairs and follow the path to the second switch. Some enemies will appear so quickly drop down and defeat them before they snatch up the Thief Girl. Now lead her through the newly opened door to the west and open the chest for some monster guts. Go through the door to the south.
Continue to the west through the door and some enemies will appear once you try leading the girl through the northern door. Simply go to the area with the switch on the west and hit it when all of the enemies are on the silver floor. They will be dropped down into an abyss. Now go north through the door and once again through the next door to the north.
Defeat the enemies that appear near the conveyor belts. Hit the switch to the north and then lead the girl through the northern door. In the next room you need to place the girl in front of the fan on the west wall. Now merge and travel across the gap to the south. Pop off on the ledge and then travel along it north.
Press the switch. This will blow the girl to the ledge on the east side. Follow her using the wind spurt and then lead the girl in front of the next fan to the south. Hit the switch to the north and then use the wind to blow across to the center ledge. Lead the girl south and through the door.
Now use the girl and Link to press both of the switches in the room. This will unlock the path to a chest that contains a Silver Rupee. After getting it – take the girl through the door to the south. Kill both of the enemies and then lead the girl through the door to the east. The exit to the dungeon will get locked so take the path to the north.

Thieves' Hideout Boss
In order to defeat the Thieves' Hideout Boss you will need to first merge with his shield – this will cause him to open his arms. Pop off and attack his back with the sword. He will now spew some foul substance towards Link – dodge it and then go towards him. The boss will swing his sword – dodge it – and then leave himself wide open. Attack him and then merge with the bosses shield, pop off, and attack his back. Repeat this several times and the boss will eventually start using new attacks.
The boss will toss his shield and come after Link with only a sword. Doge the attacks of the foe and keep attacking him the sword. Repeat a few times and then the boss will detach its head. The head will move around the room spewing forth a foul substance while the body continues attacking with the sword. Simply dodge the attacks and continue attacking with the sword. Repeat until Link wins the fight.
Returning the Sand Rod to Ravio
After defeating the boss – the Thief Girl will lead Link to the painting of Osfala that is hidden in the Thieves' Town. Grab the Heart Container and then free Sage Osfala from the painting. Once the cutscene is finished step into the portal. Sheerow will come and take the Sand Rod back to Ravio's shop so now you will be able to rent or buy it.
