Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass

How do you defeat the final form of bellum?

Games Guru: It’s super frustrating. You’ll need the grappling hook, cannon, bow and arrow, phantom sword and the shield. There are about 24 tips to help you vanquish the ugly monster, and here’s a link to them.

I am stuck in the Courage Temple where you must shoot the eye posts with the bow. Please help. I’m desperate!

Games Guru: I don’t know exactly where you are, but try to blast the crack in the wall near the temple of the Ocean King. Walk through and you’ll find an eye on the wall. When you hit if with the arrow, a bridge magically is formed. After walking over, walk up the stairs you see. Aim for the eye opposite those stairs, then shoot the same statues that appeared back when you first entered the Temple of Courage. Another statue will appear. Move is parallel to the part between the temple and the tavern. It will point to a wall. Bomb it and enter the tunnel to lead to the island.

I’m on the first boss battle with Bellum after the spirit you start out with fully gets her memory back. How do you freeze time? Please give as much detail as possible. Thanks.

Games Guru: After many attacks on Bellum, he will release Ciela. At this point, she will present you with the Phantom Sphere. With it, you can tap the hourglass icon. Once you tap it on the touch screen, the eye on Bellum back will open. Now you can draw the Phantom Hourglass to free time.

How do I get out of the Temple Gust?

Games Guru: After you’ve killed the giant worms in the sandy area, head over to the trio of windmills you marked on your map. Blow into the DS microphone to begin moving them. The air jets guarding the exit will stop and you can leave.

How do you defeat Bellum?

Games Guru: Use your grapple to remove the clouds surrounding Bellum, then bring him to you with the grapple and attack his eyes. When he runs, go up the stairs after him, firing arrows.

    In the final battles against Bellum, whenever I try to draw the hourglass, it only works about 50% of the time. Can I have some tips on how to correctly draw it?

    • Leonardo227 // March 25, 2011 at 8:36 pm // Reply

      To get past the cyclone, you have to beat the isle of gust. When you do, it will disappear and you are good to go.


  14. I’m stuck on where the fire temple guy is. HOW DO I BEAT HIM ????

    • Use your boomerang to connect the three monsters. Keep doing this until they become one. Then you can hit him.

      • Leonardo // May 21, 2011 at 11:48 am //

        Be more specific, duckman. To defeat him use your boomerang and round the three things up in number order. The one with one horn, get him first. Then the one with two horns, then the last one there. After they are together, go in for the kill.

  28. to bubble fan one last question(maybe)what does the triforce and what does it look like. i think i know what it looks like. when i tried to draw it it lookd familer. is it on a prev. part of da game. and also how would you you draw da hourglass. i tried the hourglass but it didnt work. respond immediatly please!!!!

  29. Bubble-fan // June 15, 2010 at 10:57 pm // Reply

    To Link, wat I did is on the map that you have in the top screen, take it down so that its on the touch screen and while you’re walking, trace it on to the map the path thats invisible so my other advice is that take little steps and every step you make simply mark it on the map. ^_^

  30. Bubblefan. I am curious how to beat the temple of the Ocean King. It’s the 3rd or 4th time you go in, and there are swift phantoms. I made it down to the red door, drew the design, and got through there. Then, I made it to the room where you walk on the air. I have been working on that for ages, and for some reason, I can’t figure it out so I can get the 3rd map part. I have given up on it and I am currently wandering the Ocean fishing and fighting Jolene.

    well al you do is either the triforce or the hour glass but are you on the same thing dat i waz wen i asked you lot if you are you are spose to draw the tri force and then go to where you put the crystals and then put them in the pedystals go through the door and talk to the skelon in the room and he tells you to put them in a specific order and then do so and put them in the order he tells you then go in the room again and the room goes down a floor to the 10th floor and once you finish dat you get the next sea chart. ^_^

    If you are trying to find that map or wat eva, you should find the stone plate things and try to find the middle and dig but if dat doesn’t work you can always dig any where at random cause dats kinda wat i did…
