The Cave of Flames is the second Dungeon in The Minish Cap,[1] located near the top of Mount Crenel. It used to be a human mine, but was abandoned at some point.[2]

Themes and Navigation

Being a mine, many of the puzzles in this Dungeon involve manipulating Mine Carts and tracks. Several rooms are filled with lava, and must be crossed either by jumping into Whirlwinds and floating across, or by moving quickly along patches of cooled lava. The item obtained in the Dungeon is the Cane of Pacci, a mysterious cane with the ability to flip certain objects upside-down (such as the aforementioned Mine Carts and lava patches).[3] The Cave of Flames is infested with Rollobites, Bob-ombs, and Spiked Beetles, among other monsters.

The Dungeon's boss is Gleerok, and the Sub-Boss is a group of eight Spiny Chuchus.[4] Clearing the Dungeon earns Link the second of the Four Elements, the Fire Element.[5]
