The City in the Sky is the seventh dungeon in Twilight Princess.
Entrance to the City
The dungeon can be accessed only after paying Fyer 300 Rupees to repair the broken down Sky Cannon. This cannon must first be warped with Midna's help to Lake Hylia after it is discovered beneath the Kakariko Sanctuary.
Unlike the previous six dungeons in the game, the City in the Sky is not set in Hyrule, but in the heavens, where another civilization can be found. This city is where the Oocca tribe live and is the final dungeon where Ooccoo and her son appear as items. The city runs on many ancient and complex machines that are far more advanced than anything found in Hyrule, including spinning propellers that keep the city aloft and fans that generate powerful winds. These machines use the power of the wind to its full extent; it powers every major machine that Link comes across. The city also features automatic doors.
As access to the city is only made possible with the Sky Cannon, Link enters the dungeon by falling into a pool of water to break his fall. To the east of the pool is a shop run by an Oocca that sells a few various items.
The dungeon features many high altitude platforms, including towers and narrow walkways overhead bottomless drops. Gusting winds outside, as well as fans inside the city structure, attempt to push Link off of these platforms. Link can wear the Iron Boots to avoid being pushed off by the wind. After Link obtains the second Clawshot after defeating the mini-boss Aeralfos, forming the Double Clawshot, exploration is made much easier, as the young hero can now climb between walls, hold on to Peahats, and moving walls to advance.
Minor Enemies and Traps
- The ambiance of the City in the Sky is somewhat reminiscent of the strings portion in the Forest Temple theme of Ocarina of Time.
