Dungeon Maps,(OoT | MM | OoS | OoA | TWW | TMC | TP | SS)[1][2] also simply known as Maps,(TLoZ | ALttP | LA)[1] are recurring Items in The Legend of Zelda series.

Location and Uses

The Legend of Zelda



In The Legend of Zelda, collecting the Map reveals the layout of the current Dungeon. However, any hidden rooms that can occasionally appear in later Dungeons are not shown.

A Link to the Past

"The dungeon map shows the layout of all the rooms in the dungeon and your current position."

Map
"Even rooms you have not visited appear on the map."

From A Link to the Past onward, Maps are found inside Treasure Chests. They have the property to indicate which rooms Link has already visited, by displaying them in a brighter color than any rooms not yet visited.[1] Additionally, the player can navigate between the various floors of the Dungeon while viewing the Map.

Link's Awakening

Map and Compass
"The Map will show you all the rooms in the dungeon. The Compass will indicate the location of the dungeon's Nightmare and the position of treasure chests you have not opened yet."

Maps in Link's Awakening function the same as in A Link to the Past.

Ocarina of Time



Dungeon Maps in Ocarina of Time function relatively the same as in previous installments. Due to the complex nature of the 3D environment, individual rooms can span multiple floors.

The model for the Dungeon Map features a drawn layout of the second Dungeon, Dodongo's Cavern. This was changed in Ocarina of Time 3D.

Majora's Mask



Dungeon Maps in Majora's Mask function as the same as in previous installments. Their model is reused from Ocarina of Time, so the map still shows the layout of Dodongo's Cavern.

Oracle of Seasons

Dungeon Map
"When you find this item, you will be able to see all the rooms on every floor of the dungeon. Rooms you’ve visited will be lighter than rooms you haven’t visited yet."

Each of the six Dungeons in The Minish Cap have a Dungeon Map, with each one contained in a large blue Chest. They are displayed on the Map Screen in place of the Map of Hyrule whenever Link is inside the relevant Dungeon. Rooms that Link has visited are a lighter shade of blue, while rooms he has not visited are darker blue; the room he is currently in blinks on the Dungeon Map.[3]

Twilight Princess



Skyward Sword



In Skyward Sword, Dungeon Maps also reveal the locations of Treasure Chests.

"This shows you how the labyrinth is arranged. This will be helpful for choosing the correct stairwell to go up. (Link's present position will be displayed flickering whether he has a map or not.)"
