Revision as of 22:24, July 13, 2009

The Southern Swamp is a region of Termina in The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. The region entails the main swamp area, the Woods of Mystery, the Deku Palace, and Woodfall. As its name may suggest, the area is abundant in swamplands. These swamps can usually be crossed by Deku Scrubs that utilize the lily pads found there.

Upon arriving in the area, Link finds that the swamp water has been poisoned; another of the Skull Kid's evil deeds. After he enters Woodfall Temple and defeats Odolwa, the swamp water returns to normal.

There are two businesses owned by Terminans, located on platforms above the water. The Swamp Tourist Center, where Link can get a boat tour of the swamp, and the Magic Hags' Potion Shop, where a number of helpful potions can be purchased after Link rescues Kotake. Other areas of interest include the Southern Swamp Shooting Gallery, in which Link cam hone his skills with the Hero's Bow and obtain the Big Quiver as well as a Piece of Heart.

This region is ruled by a vicious monarchy of Deku Scrubs. Other species have come to live here as well, which is strange due to how territorial the native Deku Scrubs are. The Deku Scrubs rule from the Deku Palace, and refuse to allow anyone except other Deku Scrubs entry. The swamp is also populated by monkeys, but it is a mystery as to where they live.
