Level 3,[1] also stylized as Level-3,[citation needed] and known as Manji,[1] is the third Labyrinth in The Legend of Zelda.


In the First Quest, its entrance is located within the central area of Hyrule, just west of Link's starting point.

In the Second Quest, the entrance to Level-3 is beneath a pond atop a green hill in western Hyrule, requiring the Flute from Level-2 to gain access.

Themes and Navigation

First Quest

The interior of this Labyrinth appears to be made of stone bricks, like most Labyrinths in The Legend of Zelda, with its primary color being green. Darknuts patrol the rooms here. The main item of this Labyrinth in the First Quest is the Raft, which is used only in the Overworld of Hyrule. The Boss of the Labyrinth is Manhandla, who guards one of the Triforce Fragments. This Dungeon has more Keys than is needed to unlock all of the doors in the Dungeon, as there are five Keys and four locked doors.

Second Quest

In the Second Quest, the Labyrinth's walls and floors are instead a dark and deep shade of blue, making it more similar to Level-2 of the First Quest. The Labyrinth is quite small, but greatly differs in difficulty from the First Quest. The main item of the Labyrinth is the Magical Boomerang, which is guarded by a room full of blue Goriya. This Labyrinth houses a non-aggressive Goriya, whose stomach will grumble. Link cannot pass to the next room until he gives him some Food. The Labyrinth's Boss, a trio of Dodongos, guard the Compass rather than the Triforce Fragment. After defeating them, Link must still battle a group of red Goriya in the next room before he can claim the Triforce Fragment.

The most notable difference in Second Quest is the shape of this Labyrinth, changing from a manji to the shape of the letter "L." The Maps of the first five Labyrinths in the Second Quest each symbolize a letter, spelling out an anagram for "ZELDA."
