Talus Cave is a stage from Four Swords.[1]

Features and Overview

Talus Cave is an icy cavern guarded by the Great Fairy of Ice. Slippery floors and bottomless pits make for tricky maneuvering. After the Links have cleared two floors and defeated the boss, the Great Fairy of Ice appears and gives them a Key. The kind of key depends on the number of Rupees collected.

The boss of Talus Cave is Dera Zol, and the symbol is the Water Element.

Minor Enemies and Traps


Talus Cave is likely named for a type of cave in real life. Talus caves are openings between rocks found in a pile, often at the base of a cliff, called a talus or scree.
