  • Don't beat Agahnim I. This means you'll have to use the Death Mountain Descent to reach the Dark World initially.
  • The Flute
  • Access to a dungeon that triggers this oddity


  1. Enter one of the following dungeons (the listed names are their GBA names):
    1. Dark Palace (Dark World dungeon 1),
    2. Misery Mire (Dark World dungeon 6),
    3. Turtle Rock (Dark World dungeon 7),
    4. Ganon's Tower (Dark World dungeon 8). Exit the dungeon.
  2. Use the Magic Mirror to return to the Light World.
  3. Use the Flute to warp back to your house (or any place with green castle soldiers about a screen away). Then move one screen to the west (or in the direction of the green soldiers).


If you used Dark Palace or Misery Mire for this trick, you'll see gold castle soldiers instead of green ones. If you used Turtle Rock or Ganon's Tower for this trick, you'll see purple castle soldiers instead of green ones. Regardless of colour, they have the exact same abilities as green castle soldiers, including the number of hits they take to die. Should you try this with Swamp Palace (Dark World dungeon 2), Skull Woods (Dark World dungeon 3), Thieves' Town (Dark World dungeon 4), or Ice Palace (Dark World dungeon 5), the castle soldiers will remain green.
