The Palace of Winds is the fifth dungeon in The Minish Cap. It contains the final Element, the Wind Element.

Entrance to the Palace

After Link learns of the Palace of Winds' location from King Gustaf, the young hero must venture towards the Cloud Tops and speak to the leader of the Wind Tribe, Siroc, who grants him passage into the Palace of Winds.[1]

Themes and Navigation

As its name suggests, the Palace of Winds is a wind-themed dungeon that is centered around using Roc's Cape to navigate. As a floating dungeon in the sky, the Palace of Winds has many places where Link may succumb to pits. Similarly to Vaati's Palace, the Palace of Winds has many horizontal gratings that Link may jump onto. There are also many small cloud platforms that the young hero can use to ascend to higher ground.

Within the Palace of Winds are various fans which either serve to impede Link's journey or to aid the young hero along. The mini-boss of the Palace is a Red Dark Nut, and the boss is the Gyorg Pair. Once the Gyorg Pair have been defeated, Link receives a Heart Container and the Wind Element, allowing the young hero to completely reforge the Elemental White Sword into the legendary Four Sword.
