are we sure this refers to the dungeon? I always thought it refered to the money making game area and the place where you can get a 100 rupees above it and a piece of heart below it Oni Dark Link 18:10, October 5, 2009 (UTC)

Definitely refers to the dungeon. It fits perfectly, and what other time does an Old Man give advice about things outside of the dungeon when he is in the dungeon?

Long time since ive played the original but i think he might refer to the waterfall from a dungeon. Oni Dark Link 18:15, October 5, 2009 (UTC)

Your absolutely wrong on this, and Im not trying to be mean, but your idea is somethign ZW would put. Why in the world would he be talking about the Money Making Game when your in the dungeon in the first place?

im not talking about the money making game im talking about that area (which is a peninsula on the easternmost part of the overworld) and has secrets on it (one screen above and below the money making game screen) Oni Dark Link 18:22, October 5, 2009 (UTC)

Grr, this is where the adhere-to-in-game-name rule becomes a liability.

Also Oni...just no.

I honestly dont even know what you are trying to say. For further proof that hes referring to the Triforce view "File:Level1.gif"; Its in the far east and connected to the rest of the dungeon on one side. Again Not sure why he would be telling you about something outside of the dungeon when he is in the dungeon. That never happens any other time...

the old man does make several references to things outside the dungeon (in levels 3,4,6 and 8 first quest) Oni Dark Link 19:45, October 6, 2009 (UTC)

Five Years Later

Does anyone feel like reopening this issue and giving some more diverse opinions? I don't think it's nearly as clear cut as Joe made it out to be. The Old Man refers to secrets outside the dungeon multiple times and the square on the north eastern most portion of the map is one of the hardest in the game to find. Aside from that something I didn't mention before is that the peninsula in the north east is an actual outlet surrounded by water while the room in the dungeon is an underground cavern presumably surrounded by earth. I'm not saying that it can't refer to the dungeon, merely the fact that it does isn't nearly as clear as Joe made it out to be. Oni Dark Link 01:02, August 3, 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, Old Man refers to stuff outside of the dungeons on several occasions, and the area in the northeast corner of the map is very obviously a peninsula. I think both of these suggestions are equally plausible. Gotta be blunt here, but I really think they were conditioned to shooting down your suggestion because you were the one who made it.

I agree with Jedi. Green Rupee 08:21, August 3, 2014 (UTC)

So how should we proceed then? A complete rewrite of the article or change it so both are included? Oni Dark Link 11:30, August 3, 2014 (UTC)

We should rewrite it to offer both options as equal possibilities. Green Rupee 11:41, August 3, 2014 (UTC)
I agree; it would be good to have both on there. —Ceiling Master 17:42, August 3, 2014 (UTC)

Okay, I've attempted a rewrite that presents both possibilities with equal merit. Since it's such an odd case I think we should link to it in articles assuming both cases to be true. That is to say keep it on the Level 1 page but also add it to the Money Making Game page or where ever else it is necessary to link. Oni Dark Link 16:44, August 4, 2014 (UTC)

Agreed. Jedimasterlink (talk) 21:45, August 4, 2014 (UTC)

She was lying dead, in the same position he had seen her in five minutes before, and despite the fixed eyes and the pallor of the cheeks, the same expression was on her childlike face with it's upper lip covered with tiny black hair. 'I love you all, and have done no harm to anyone; and what have you done to me?' said her charming, pathetic, dead face. - War and Peace"

Heyo. Friendly neighbourhood Oni just popping back for a mo to point out that the Switch virtual console rerelease fixes the spelling error on Peninsula. Leave it up to you if you think an updated spelling should take precedent for the page name. I think keeping the quote for it's absolute classicness is a must though.
