Molida Island is a recurring location in The Legend of Zelda series.[1][2]

Features and Overview

Phantom Hourglass

Molida Island is an Island in the Southwestern Sea in Phantom Hourglass. The southern portion of the Island is populated, whereas the northern territory is a wild grove. The Wayfarer's Words can be found scattered throughout the Island, which many of the inhabitants find to be a nuisance.[citation needed] The Shovel can be found in a cave on the Island, which is required for finding a safe route through the foggy passage in the Northwestern Sea. Molida Island also bears the Temple of Courage, which can be found on the back of the isle. To access it, Link needs a Salvage Arm from Eddo on Cannon Island, as Link needs the Sun Key, which is hidden underwater. Before Link can return to Molida Island with the Salvage Arm, a Giant Eye Plant will appear and guard the Island.

Molida Island is also where Link will find the Archery Game, which is unlocked after clearing the Temple of Courage. In addition, three small portions of land east of the Island can be accessed by blowing up a Wooden Box, retrieving the Cucco within with the Grappling Hook, then using the Cucco to fly there. With the help of the Shovel, a Treasure Map can be unveiled from the ground.[which?]

Two Big Green Rupees can be found in patches of dirt inside the Old Wayfarer's hideaway. A third Big Green Rupee can be found by digging just under the Tree south of Romanos and Maronie's house.
