The Treacherous Tower is a location and mini-game in A Link Between Worlds.[1]

Location and Rules

The Treacherous Tower is found on Death Mountain in Lorule, approximately where the Tower of Hera is located in Hyrule. It is host to a mini-game that is run by the Devilish Girl, who pits Link against a series of rooms full of enemies. These rooms are surrounded by a bottomless pit that Link can fall into and receive damage, which is in turn surrounded by a cheering audience full of monsters. When all enemies in the room are defeated, Link is able to carry on to the next room, until he reaches the end and receives his prize. There are three modes: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. Initially only the Beginner level is available, and the Intermediate and Advanced levels are unlocked after Link completes their preceding levels. If Link can complete a level with faster time than his previous record, he will be rewarded with extra Rupees in addition to the usual prizes.[2]

The Beginner level contains five rooms and costs 100 Rupees to play.[3] The Intermediate level contains 15 rooms and costs 200 Rupees to play.[4] The Advanced level contains 50 rooms and costs 300 Rupees to play.[5][6] Upon completing the final room of any difficulty level, Link will receive numerous Rupees thrown from the audience, with higher difficulty levels yielding more valuable Rupees. Link recieves 300 rupees from the crowd upon completing the Beginner level, for a net profit of 200 rupees. 1000 rupees are gifted from the audience upon completing the Intermediate level, for a net profit of 800 rupees. If Link manages to complete the Advanced level, he gets 5000 rupees from the audience, for a net profit of 4700 rupees. In addition, after completing the Intermediate level for the first time, the Devilish Girl rewards him with a Piece of Heart.[7] After completing the Advanced level for the first time, she upgrade Link's Lamp to the Super Lamp, which deals eight times the amount of damage.[8] A subsequent completion will see her upgrade Link's Net to the Super Net, which also deals eight times the damage.[9][10] According to the Devilish Girl, nobody has survived the Advanced level.[11]
