Kanalet Castle is a mini-dungeon in Link's Awakening.[1][2] It is located near the center of Koholint Island.

Features and Overview

Kanalet Castle was once owned by Prince Richard, but rebellious servants kicked him out; now Prince Richard is only interested in retrieving the Golden Leaves he left behind.[3] Prince Richard gets Link to acquire these Golden Leaves by defeating monsters and solving puzzles. However, the front gate of Kanalet Castle is up and thus impassable. Link must give Bananas to Kiki to make a bridge across the moat. He can then enter via an underground passage under the castle walls. Once within Kanalet Castle, Link can press a Floor Switch to open the gate, allowing an easy escape and access if he wishes to return.[4] The Boss of this mini-dungeon is a Ball and Chain Soldier, who battles with Link for the final Golden Leaf.

In the southwest corner of Kanalet Castle's moat, Link can dive and find a Piece of Heart.
