The Water Temple is a Level in Tri Force Heroes. It is the fourth and last Level in the Riverside area.

Themes and Navigation

The Water Temple is a large, flooded palace filled with many pools. As it involves a lot of swimming, the Zora Costume becomes very useful here.

In Stage 1, the Links enter the temple from its entrance, where further down is a large pool. The Links can find two Gripshots here. A Water Rod can be found on top of a tall platform in the middle of the pool, but cannot be reached at that point. On the other side of the pool are two Switches, which are guarded off by cages on particular sides. The Links must hit these timed Switches using the Gripshot from the left and right sides of the room, which doing so will open a valve and flood the room, allowing the Links to reach the Water Rod. The Link with the rod then has to create pillars of water to reach the Triforce Gateway on the other side.

In Stage 2, the Links appear on a caged floor overhead a pool of water. A switch in the center must be pressed down by all three Links, which opens another valve and floods the area as Tektites, Water Tektites and skeletal fish appear. The Links must swim over to small platforms to attack them, or use the Water Rod to stun them and bring them closer. After all enemies have been defeated, a steel cage to a flooded passage opens, however it is blocked by a grate. The water can be drained by swimming to the east side where the water valve is. It is also possible to drain the water before killing the enemies. Doing this gives the Links more solid ground as they fight. One Link must create a bridge to the valve using the Water Rod, while another Link turns its wheel by grabbing the wheel's post with the Gripshot. The Links can then walk under the grate to a platform that can be reached using the Water Rod. Another water valve must be opened using the same method as before, re-flooding the room and allowing the Links to reach the Triforce Gateway.

In Stage 3, the Links find themselves trapped in a caged enclosure with an Octorok. The Links can escape the enclosure by using the Gripshot on the cage's panel, which will flip around and drop the Links outside. The Links with the Gripshots escape the cage and press two switches, opening the cage door so the other Link can escape. Outside the cage, the Links find a locked gate and a valve near one of the platforms, reachable only with the Water Rod. Opening the valve raises the water level. The Links can then reach another cage panel by having one Link lead them with the Water Rod. On the other side, the Links can find a chest containing 20 Rupees, and a Raft that can be moved towards a chest containing a Key and a switch by using the Gripshot on a post. Pressing the switch opens the cage door. As the gate is submerged underwater, the Links cannot use the Key just yet. The valve must be turned again to lower the water, after which the Links can use the Raft and move it with the Gripshot to transport the Key to the gate where the Triforce Gateway is.

Stage 4 is where Arrghus is fought in a pool.
