  • The boss is Digdogger LOZ1 Large Digdogger.png. While large, Digdogger is invincible. You must collect the Whistle in this dungeon in order to defeat it. Blow the Whistle and it will shrivel up in to a tiny version of itself, which can be stabbed by your sword.
  • Defeat it to earn a Heart Container LOZ1 Heart Container.png. Continue on to the room above to obtain the fifth Piece of Triforce LOZ1 Piece of Triforce.png.


Dungeon 5 is isolated, and as such, you may want to look at the supply points before heading to the dungeon.

  • A woman selling Water of Life LOZ1 Water of Life.png is 4 screens west and 1 screen south of the Lost Hills.
