Magical Warp Tile,[1] or simply Warp Tiles (and also known as Magical Transporters), are mysterious portals that transport anyone who steps into them to the Dark World. There are eight of them in all.[2] Due to the efforts of Agahnim in sending the Maidens to the Dark World, he also manages to open a similar portal to the Dark World at the gateway to Hyrule Castle.

Location and Function

Most are hidden underneath rocks, but the one at the peak of Death Mountain is open and easily stumbled into. Those who walk through these portals are transformed into a shape that reflects their heart by the power of the Triforce. This is usually that of a monster or animal.[3] Not only this, but these warps are one-way; there is no way for normal people to return from the Dark World due to the seal of the Seven Sages. Only Link is able to return, using the Magic Mirror. By using the Magic Mirror, Link will leave behind a sparkling gate at his return location that will allow him to transport back to the Dark World.

The eight Magical Warp Tiles found across Hyrule are:

In addition to the above Magical Warp Tiles, Link can also Warp to the Dark World by walking through the gateway at Hyrule Castle after he first defeats Agahnim and is sent to the Dark World.

To retain his normal form after passing through a Magical Warp Tile, Link will have to obtain the Moon Pearl.

  3. "Those who stepped on the Magical Warp Tiles that served as entrances would be lost to the Dark World, transformed into demons. Link, who possessed the qualities of the hero, did not become a demon, but was instead turned into an animal (in this case, a pink bunny)."  (Hyrule Historia (Dark Horse Books) pg. 95)
