Cove of Transition is a Level in Tri Force Heroes. It is the third Level of the Riverside area.

Themes and Navigation

In Stage 1, the Links enter a wide cliff side next to rushing waterfalls, and are initially separated from each other. Gripshots are provided nearby, which can be used on the wooden posts to pull the Links forward and reunite them. A broken bridge can be crossed by gripping onto the three posts across. Another ledge prevents them from going forward, however the Links can form a Totem and throw the top Link onto a wooden platform with Rupees nearby that drops down to the other side. The other Links then simply have to grip onto him with their Gripshot to cross over the gap. Once reunited, the Links can continue east until they reach another gap, which can be crossed by throwing two Links over and having the third Link grip onto them with the Gripshot. On the other side, the Links must form another Totem so that the top Link can grip onto a post on a wooden platform on the other side. Once he is on the other side, the other Links must then use the Gripshot on that Link again, and finally reach the Stage's Triforce Gateway.

In Stage 2, the Links reappear on a stone platform in the middle of a lake. Immediately the dams of a stone wall open as water pours in, and Tektites and Water Tektites emerge. The rushing water will alternate between flooding the lake and draining it, changing the water's depth. This causes the stone platform to go under as the Links are forced to swim, but also makes the Stage's Triforce Gateway on an overhead platform reachable. The Links must defeat all of the enemies in the area, by swimming onto land attacking the Tektites as they approach. The Triforce Gateway will then open after all enemies have been defeated.

Stage 3 places the Links in another lake, who immediately notice a Switch on top of a tall dam. A Raft nearby can be moved by having the Links stand on it, and move it forward by using the Gripshot on a post. By moving the Raft, the Links reach a square platform where one must Link must stand, so as to use the Gripshot on him to continue moving the Raft. After moving the Raft to the dam's wall, the Links can then form a Totem to have the top Link reach its switch. Pressing it opens the wall's dam as the entire area floods. The Links can then swim over to a platform where the Triforce Gateway is.

In Stage 4, the Links enter the courtyard of a temple with shallow water. In the center is a Gyorm that must be defeated, by using the Gripshot to pull it out of its shell whenever it emerges and having another Link slash at it. Three more will emerge after each one is defeated, after which the Triforce Gateway will open. Hearts and Rupees can be found on top of platforms, reachable by forming a Totem.
