Level 2, also known as "The Moon", is the second dungeon of The Legend of Zelda. This dungeon has a blue color theme. The entrance is found deep in the green forest, northeast of the screen where the game begins.


Most rooms of Level 2 require Link to kill a group of either Ropes or Goriyas, although the map and compass are guarded by Gels, and the Moldorm makes its first appearance in the series here.

Level 2 holds four keys but only three locked doors - and none of these block Link's path to the dungeon item or the boss. The locked doors can be bypassed by destroying Weak Walls, making it possible to visit every room without using a single key.

The Old Man can be found near the northeast corner of the level, waiting to give Link the advice, "DODONGO DISLIKES SMOKE". This is a clue that the boss, a Dodongo, can be defeated with bombs.
