Once Valkyrie and Kurino Sandra reappear in the middle of an island, start walking forward by pushing your joysticks into their "northern" position as two groups of seven Brown Fly Drills come flying towards you in curved lines from the left and right sides of the screen; once you have fired a shot from your sword or trident at each of them to kill them, they will each leave a small coin (worth five in gold) behind. Once you have collected them all, you will have jump onto a horizontally-moving iceberg in the ocean ahead of you before proceeding to jump onto a second horizontally-moving iceberg - and once you have done so, you will have to jump onto a third horizontally-moving iceberg before proceeding to jump onto another solid platform. Once you have done so, continue walking forward by pushing the joystick into the "northern" position as you come to four Talos charging randomly around; unlike the one you encountered on the fourth stage, these ones can cause injury to Valkyrie and Sandra if they butt them, so once you have fired a shot from your sword or trident at each of these, to kill them, they will each leave a small coin behind. Once you have collected them all, you will come to six chests (two red, two green and two blue) - those two blue ones contain ten money bags (worth fifty in gold) each and the two green ones contain a Bomb and a 4-Way Shot respectively, but the two red ones contain eight Orange Honorians each, so you should be ready to fire a Bomb or 4-Way shot at them to kill them, once you have collected up all the money bags and both special weapons. They will each leave a small coin behind when killed, and once you have collected them all, you will have to drop off the edge of the platform to land on the dirt below as fifteen Mimizu emerge from the ground and start crawling towards you before jumping on you once they get close enough; once you have fired off a Bomb or 4-Way shot from your sword or trident at each of these to kill them, they will each leave a small coin behind. Once you have collected them all you will have to jump onto two adjacent stones on the other side of the dirt before proceeding to jump onto a third solid platform - and once you have done so you must continue walking forward by pushing your joysticks into the "northern" position, as five Purple Goblins come walking towards you while throwing their spears at you. Once you have fired a Bomb or 4-Way shot from your sword or trident at each of them to kill them, they will each leave a small coin behind; once you collect them all, you will come to the travelling salesman Zoul, in the centre of the screen. Once one player walks up to him and entered his realm, the other one will automatically be drawn in as well.

Once Valkyrie and Sandra have reappeared in Zoul's realm, he will speak the Hiragana text Irasshaimase. (いらっしゃいませ) to them before proceeding to ask the first player to choose between a Wide Beam (gold shield) for 2000 in gold, a Healing Herb (Doku Plant) for 3000 in gold, and a Magic Book (spellbook) for 4000 in gold; push your joystick into the "north-western" position to select the first item, the "northern" position to select the second item, and the "north-eastern" position to select the third item, then press the Firing Button to confirm your choice. Once Valkyrie has paid Zoul for her chosen special weapon, he will ask the second player to choose between the two remaining items - and you cannot push the joystick into the positioning of the absent item. Once Sandra has paid Zoul for his chosen special weapon, both he and Valkyrie shall exit Zoul's realm (they can also do this voluntarily if they cannot afford to pay him for any of the three items he offers, by pushing the joystick into the "southern" position) and reappear in the stage proper.

Once Valkyrie and Sandra have reappeared in the stage proper, continue walking to the left by pushing your joysticks into the "western" position, as you come to a pool of a shallow peach-coloured liquid; as with the pool of shallow water you encountered on the second stage, you will have the opportunity to swim around in it for a while, but you should not let it detract from your goal of clearing the stage. Once you have decided to jump out of the pool, you will have to continue walking forward by pushing your joysticks into the "northern" position and drop off the edge of the platform to land on the dirt below again as fifteen more Mimizu emerge from the ground and start crawling towards you before jumping on you once they get close enough - and once you have fired off a Wide shot from your sword or trident at each of them to kill them they will each leave a small coin behind. Once you have collected them all, you will have to jump onto two more adjacent stones on the other side of the dirt before jumping onto a fourth solid platform; once you have done so, you'll have to continue walking to the right by pushing your joystick into the "eastern" position as four Blue Honorians come hovering towards you. Once you've fired a Wide shot from your sword or trident at each of these, to kill them, they will each leave a small coin behind - and once you have collected them all, you'll come to a third green chest (which contains a randomly-generated amount of gold). Once you have opened the chest, four more Orange Honorians will come hovering towards you; once you have fired a Wide shot from your sword or trident at each of them to kill them, they will each leave a small coin behind. Once you have collected them all, the song you are hearing from the Yamaha YM-2151 will change from the game's upbeat "main theme" to something more sinister-sounding as you come to the travelling salesman Zoul in the centre of the screen - and when one player walks up to him and enters his realm, the other will automatically be drawn in as well, as the song you're hearing from the Yamaha YM-2151 fades to Zoul's theme.

Once Valkyrie and Sandra have reappeared in Zoul's realm, he will speak the Hiragana text Irasshaimase. (いらっしゃいませ.) to them before proceeding to ask that first player to choose between: a 4-Way Shot (tail feathers) for 5000 in gold, a Homing Shot (crossbow) for 5000 in gold, and a 3-Way Shot (sceptre) for 5000 in gold; once again, you must push the joystick into the north-western" position to select the first item, the "northern" position to select the second item and the "north-eastern" position to select the third item then press the Firing Button to confirm your choice. Once Valkyrie has paid Zoul for her chosen special weapon, he will ask the second player to choose between the two remaining items - and you again cannot push your joystick into the position of the absent item. Once Sandra has paid Zoul for his chosen special weapon both he and Valkyrie shall exit Zoul's realm (once again, they can also do this voluntarily if they cannot afford to pay him by pushing their joysticks into the "southern" position) and reappear back in the stage proper.

Once Valkyrie and Sandra reappear in the stage proper, continue walking forward by pushing your joystick into the "northern" position as eighteen more Blue Honorians come hovering towards you; once you have fired a 4-Way, Homing or 3-Way shot from your sword or trident at each of them to kill them they will each leave a small coin behind. Once you have collected all these, you will have to continue walking to the left, as you come to six more chests (four red and two green) - the two green ones contain a Heart Plate and a Magic Book respectively, but the four red ones contain three groups of eight Orange Honorians and a Red Kaox respectively so you should be ready to fire a 4-Way, Homing or 3-Way shot from your sword or trident at them to kill them (once you've collected both of those special weapons). They'll each leave a small coin (the Red Kaox will leave four) behind when killed, and once you have collected them all you will have to walk back to the right by pushing the joystick into the "eastern" position as a Kumo comes hovering towards you while dropping lightning bolts on you; once you have utilized the Big spell, and caused enough tremors to it after jumping and landing to kill it, it will leave a large coin (worth twenty in gold) behind. Once you collect it (and shrink), continue walking forward by pushing the joystick up into the "northern" position as four more Blue Honorians come hovering towards you - and once you have fired enough 4-Way, Homing or 3-Way shots from your sword or trident at each of them to kill them, they will each leave small coin behind. Once you have collected them all continue walking to the right by pushing the joystick into the "eastern" position, as a Gray Goblin emerges from the ground and starts walking towards you while throwing three of his spears at you; once you have fired a 4-Way, Homing, or 3-Way shot from your sword or trident at this one, to kill him, he will leave a small coin behind. Once you have collected it, continue walking forward by pushing the joystick into the "northern" position, as you come to a small house in the centre of the screen - and as with the two huts you encountered on that first stage, you will have the opportunity to enter it. Once Valkyrie and Sandra have reappeared inside the house, the elderly sorcerer Babasama will be standing in front of them; he'll speak the Hiragana and Katakana text Ō! Sono tei ga mi ha washi nodeshi no randa no mono ka nojononegainarashikataganaiwashinohijutsuwo kamereon ojutsusazukeyō. (おお! そのていがみはわしのでしのランダのものかのじょのねがいならしかたがないわしのひじゅつをカメレオンをじゅつさずけよう.) to them before granting them the Chameleon spell and four more circles on their magic meters in exchange for the old scroll given to them by the young woman in the dungeon on that fourth stage (it is worth a full circle). Valkyrie and Sandra will then exit the house and reappear where it was standing once the stage has resumed and the music has changed back to the "main theme".

Once Valkyrie and Sandra reappear in the stage proper (at the entrance to its boss cavern), the double doors in that rock face will open up, as they walk through them for their fifth boss encounter; once they have reappeared inside that boss cavern, two indestructible blocks of ice will come sliding towards them. Once you have moved out of their way, you will have to continue walking forward by pushing the joystick into the "northern" position, as you come to two more indestructible blocks of ice, which are sliding back and forth in the centre of the screen - and, once you have managed to find a way around them, you will have to continue walking forward by pushing your joystick into the "northern" position as you come to a blockade of eighteen Ice Blockers at the back of the cavern. They'll attack by breaking free from their allocated positions in the blockade to slide towards Valkyrie and Sandra in a manner similar to that of the aforementioned indestructible ice blocks; once you have fired enough 4-Way, Homing, or 3-Way shots at each of these, to kill them (they will not leave anything behind), the screen will fade out and you will receive a 20000-point bonus and 1000 in gold (the first 4-figure "gold bonus").


たすけだされた (Tasukedasa reta)
ひかりのせいが いいました. (Hikari no sei ga īmashita.)


おうごんのたねは (O u go n no tane ha)
ふしぎなちからを もっています. (Fushigina chika-ra wo motte imasu.)


きたのいずみに いれると (Kita no izumi ni ireru to)
どんな ねがいも かなうのです. (Don'na negai mo kanau nodesu.)


たとえ あくの ねがいでも... (Tatoe aku no negai demo...)


それを とめるには (Sore wo tomeru ni ha)
みずのせいのちからがいるのです. (Mizuno sei nochi kara ga iru nodesu.)


みずのせいを たすけるために (Mizu no sei wo tasukeru tame ni)
きたへ いそぎました. (Kita he isogimashita.)


Once the screen fades back in, it will immediately fade back out again as Valkyrie and Sandra automatically proceed to the sixth stage, Kōri no Dōkutsu, without any special transition; several Ice Blockers also appear in this stage as regular enemies (which means that they will not take as many hits to kill).
