PLEASE TURN ON VIDEO ANNOTATIONS!
Many things in this walkthrough are explained in notes on the video and also in the description below. Please read these before asking questions.
My complete Level 6: Misery Mire walkthrough for The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Played in real time on Snes9x v1.43 rerecording with rerecords used to optimize video length.
Equipment checklist: 17 Hearts, 1/2 Magic, Ether, Cane of Byrna
- The 1/2 Magic upgrade can be obtained by jumping down the well next to the smithy's shop in Kakariko Village and sprinkling some magic powder on the statue within.
- The Ether medallion is needed to open the entrance to Misery Mire. It can be obtained by using the Book of Mudora and Master Sword at the monolith just west of the Mountain Tower.
- The Cane of Byrna can be found on Death Mountain in the Dark World by jumping off the cliff just below the warp tile by the Mountain Tower and entering the cave on the ledge below.
[00:04] Dash bounce
You can use the Hookshot to cross this pit but dash bouncing across is faster and looks so much cooler.
Their magic waves are not actually as wide as they appear. Unless you're directly in front of them, they'll usually miss.
[01:05] Chest on the spikes
You'll need to use either the Cane of Byrna or the Magic Cape to avoid damage while getting this small key.
[07:09] Boss: Vitreous
Yet more giant eyeballs! The bow and arrows are effective against Vitreous but don't let the small eyeballs swarm you; fend them off with your sword if they get too close. When the big eyeball lifts up out of the slime, run to either side of the room to avoid its lightning attack. Once the small eyeballs are all dead, stand in front of the big one and unload eight arrows into it or keep knocking it back with your sword. Throughout the fight, be careful not to walk up into the slime past where the darker green slime is or else you'll get hurt.
I also have another no damage video, that uses only the sword, here:
