The Thieves' Hideout is a dungeon in A Link Between Worlds.[1] The dungeon is located in Thieves' Town in Lorule, and its boss is Stalblind. Completing the Thieves' Hideout will grant Link access to the Sand Rod.


Entrance to the Dungeon

To enter the dungeon, Link must interact with the closed door in front of it. He must then complete the lyrics to a "password song" [2], the answers to which can be heard (indirectly) by the people in the town. The song is as follows:

Quote1.png A smart thief fears the boss's wrath! I'd rather be on a cliff walkin' a narrow path.
Sometimes it hurts too much t'care. Ya think knowledge is power, but it's really despair.
Every time I say I'm a-leavin', this accursed life sets me right back to theivin'!
— Spear Boy

Themes and Navigation

Inside, Link meets a Thief Girl who had been imprisoned when she learned the location of the portrait of Osfala. Much of the dungeon is based on the use of floor switches, on which Link, the Thief Girl, or a statue must stand to activate. Several instances require the activation of two switches simultaneously to allow Link to proceed. Link can activate two switches by having the Thief Girl stand on one and himself stand on the other. This dungeon is the only appearance of Zazak, however, only the blue variety is present. The dungeon also includes crystal switch puzzles that can be solved using Bombs or Bawbs, usually throwing the bombs onto conveyor belts, the direction oftentimes must be changed by pressing the aforementioned crystal switches.

The Compass is in a barred cell in the central room of B2; Link can Wall Merge to get it. The Big Key is at the northern end of the dungeon's entrance. Link and the Thief Girl must press two switches at once to activate a moving wall that Link can merge onto and access the chest.

The Master Ore is in the northwest corner of B3. Link and the Thief Girl must activate two switches in the southwest area of the room to open a long hallway with the chest at the end.
