The Dungeon Entrance
In the First Quest, the dungeon's entrance is atop a green hill in the eastern part of Hyrule, north of the forest area. However, in the Second Quest, the Moon dungeon's location has been moved, and its entrance is in the form of a stairway hidden under an Armos statue in the western part of Hyrule (this is the same spot where a shop selling the Blue Ring is in the First Quest).
The interior of this dungeon appears to be made of stone bricks, like most dungeons in The Legend of Zelda, with its primary color being a deep and dark shade of blue. One room is filled with sand and is home to Moldorms.
The dungeon item of this dungeon is the Magical Boomerang, an upgrade of the previous normal boomerang, and is being guarded by a room full of blue Goriya. The boss of this dungeon is a single Dodongo, who guards one of the Triforce pieces. This dungeon is also notable that it also houses the Old Man who says the infamous quote, "DODONGO DISLIKES SMOKE".
Like most dungeons in the second quest of The Legend of Zelda, it now also greatly differs in size and difficulty. Additionally, the walls and floors of the dungeon were also changed into the color green, thus being more similar to the Manji dungeon in the First Quest.
The main item of this dungeon was also replaced with the Recorder, and is this time held in a basement room guarded by Keese. Manhandla also appears as a mini-boss, whereas Gleeok is now the main boss guarding one of the Triforce pieces.
The most noteable difference in the shape of this dungeon was that it was changed from the shape of a cresent moon into the shape of the letter A, sharing a common link with most second quest dungeon that use letters to make up a word. When the shapes of the Lizard (Letter Z), Eagle (Letter E), Manji (Letter L), Snake (Letter D), and Moon (Letter A) are listed in that order, they spell Zelda.
