From Zelda Wiki, the Zelda encyclopedia
I think that the Small Key page and the Key page should be seperate but I think that the Small Key page shouldn't say that the keys in Legend of Zelda are Small Keys they are different.
Every game? Maybe my memory is bad, but I seem to recall that the first two games had no such keys. As I recall, the keys were interchangeable between dungeons in those games, and any key would work in the locks on the boss' doors, if the particular boss even had a locked door.
Why does "nightmare key" redirect here if this page has a link to "nightmare key"?
- Someone got a little careless and thought that there was a separate Nightmare Key page. That's all. If you catch anything else like this, feel free to erase the link from the page. ;) --Ando 17:43, 12 February 2008 (EST)
- I don't know how to reword the information on this article, but Nightmare Keys... They are seperate from dungeon keys. For example: the Tail Key, a "dungeon key", is used to gain access to the Tail Cave. Inside the Tail Cave, you find the Nightmare Key which is exactly the same as a boss key. It is a special key used to open the door to the bosses lair. They were seperate from dungeon keys... I will try to rewrite the article, but it may require cleanup...--Magnus orion 23:04, 22 March 2008 (EDT)
Could someone find out the terminology of the games for Boss Keys. The first appearce was the Big Key in aLttP. They were renamed Nightmare Key in LA. That is all I know. I remember surprise at realizing they weren't called boss keys in one of the zelda games, but I can't remember which. Anyway, I think it would just be nice info to include. I will see if I can find out on my own through the rest of the internet--Magnus orion 23:14, 22 March 2008 (EDT)
- Well I've been looking around and so far I have, A Link to the Past = Big Key. Link's Awakening = Nightmare Key. Ocarina of Time = Boss Key. Majora's Mask = Boss Key. The Wind Waker = Big Key. Twilight Princess = Big Key. The 2D titles still need to be addressed, however.--Magnus orion 12:10, 23 March 2008 (EDT)
