A Forest Dungeon may refer to any of the forest themed dungeons in The Legend of Zelda series.

Characteristics

Dungeons located in forests, groves or swamps usually mimic the ecosystems surrounding them both in context and in atmosphere. They are often populated mostly by floral or arthropodal enemies, such as Deku Babas, Deku Scrubs, or Skulltulas. As forest dungeons are usually encountered early on in the game, the puzzles in these dungeons are usually generic in nature and somewhat simple. Depending on the game itself or the plot, there may be various unique situations in the dungeon. For example, in Twilight Princess, Link has to cooperate with monkeys in order to make his way through the rooms of the Forest Temple, and in Ocarina of Time, he occasionally has to twist some corridors so that he can access and explore new rooms of the same temple. These dungeons can sometimes have poisonous enemies and traps that will drain Link's health at a faster rate than usual. Poison often serves the same role lava does in the Fire Dungeons, and has also been prominent for Shadow dungeons, due to its dark nature. The dungeons are often first in the games they are in.
