The Ocarina of Time’s Water Temple was one of the toughest temples in the series
The water temple in The Legend of Zelda The Ocarina of Time is one of the most famous levels in any game. Most gamers will remember it for its difficulty. The water temple required you to use the Iron Boots and the Hook Shot to traverse the level, while constantly changing the levels of the water to access different areas.
Completing Ocarina of Time’s water temple would take at least an hour (though, if you’re not very good at puzzles, probably longer). And once you get to the end of the temple you face one of Ocarina of Time’s best boss fights: Dark Link. Dark Link was one tough fight and he only got tougher as the fight progressed. Worse, Dark Link reacts to your moves, making it feel like you’re fighting a mirror. You’re going to need tons of potions in order to beat Dark Link!
What made the water temple so amazing, however, wasn’t it’s difficulty but its creativity. It was one of the most unique temples and made you have to think in creative ways to solve its puzzles.
