Dee Ess Island

  • View history

Features and Overview [ ]

Located in the southern area of the Southeastern Sea , Dee Ess Island is a hidden island shaped like a Nintendo DS . [2] It has geographical features resembling the system's Control Pad, the A, B, X, and Y buttons, the top and bottom screens, the speakers, and the microphone. The dock also resembles a stylus sticking part-way into the DS.

On the island, Link can find a Courage Gem by digging with the Shovel where the Menu button would be located in the area representing the touch screen. [3] He can obtain another Courage Gem by going to the pit representing the top screen and defeating the Hinoxes that lurk there. If the player blows into the microphone while Link stands on the spot of the island representing the microphone, a Treasure Chest containing a Big Gold Rupee will appear. By using the Shovel on the various spots of soft ground representing the speakers and the microphone, Link can also unearth Rupees of different values, though some of these spots will produce groups of Bees or Ropes instead.

Dee Ess Island also houses the Goron Game , where Link can win a Bombchu Bag upgrade.

Dee Ess Island

Dee Ess Island is an island located in the Southeastern Sea in The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass . Its name and appearance are derived from the Nintendo DS , the handheld that the game was released for. The island resembles a Nintendo DS Lite, although the Touch Screen map resembles an original Nintendo DS model.

The island has the Goron Minigame , which Link can play after completing the Goron Temple and receiving a letter from Gongoron . If Link completes the game under 35 seconds, he can obtain an upgrade to his Bombchu Bag . Dee Ess Island has several patches of cracked land, most of which are on the sides of the "upper screen" of Dee Ess Island. Digging these spots sometimes reveals Big Green Rupees and Big Red Rupees. Sometimes this reveals an enemy such as Ropes and bees . Rock Chuchus and Eye Brutes are also present.

Treasure [ edit ]

  • A large pit on the northern part of Dee Ess Island has two Eye Brutes. When Link defeats them, a Treasure Chest containing a Courage Gem appears.
  • Another Courage Gem can be found if Link uses the shovel to dig at the lower-left corner of the island's bottom screen.
  • If the player blows into the microphone by the rock just under the bottom-left of Dee Ess Island's bottom screen (where the mic for an original DS model would be located), a chest with a Big Gold Rupee appears at the top-left corner of the island's bottom screen.

Dee Ess Island

Dee Ess Island.png

Dee Ess Island is one of the many islands featured in Phantom Hourglass . This item is specifically located in the southeast quadrant in the World of the Ocean King .

Dee Ess Island, as its name implies, highly resembles the shape of a Nintendo DS . The island is home to a famous mini-game known as the Goron Game . The island includes a control pad, A, B, X, and Y buttons, and even a top and bottom screen. It even includes small holes that act like the speakers on the actual console. In addition to that, the dock has a similar resemblance to the DS stylus.

A Gossip Stone will inform Link that there is something valuable and rewarding underneath of the island's menu button. If Link goes there and proceeds to use his shovel , he will uncover a Courage Gem . He can also obtain yet another Courage Gem by making his way to the northern part of the island and defeating the Hinox that reside there. Link can also uncover several Rupees , as well as hives, and even rope.

Spirit Gems

Spirit gem locations.

There are 60 Spirit Gems in total, 20 for each type. While not required to beat the game, there's good reason to collect the gems (aside from personal satisfaction, that is). For every 10 of each kind you gather, you get to "upgrade" the spirit, which unlocks the spirit's true abilities, letting you essentially borrow its powers. You can borrow the powers of only one spirit at a time, but you can switch between them at will via the Collections menu. The currently equipped fairy shows up as the pointer for your stylus.

Bring the collected Spirit Gems to Spirit Island, located towards the south edge on the western side of the Southwestern Sea. It's in-between the tiny isles that make out a small triangle. You won't see it on your map at first, but it will be recorded there after initial discovery.

Where is Dee Ess Island in The Legend of Zelda Phantom Hourglass?

User Avatar

Having trouble finding the "Dee Ess" island? Steps to take: 1. You MUST HAVE the Eastern Sea Chart. It is mandatory! (required)

* You can find this chart in the Temple of the Ocean King. If you need help, it would be best to look up the walk through. I prefer to use "MyCheats.com" for walk throughs ect. 2. Ahoy! Next, sail out in Eastern Sea. You should see 2 or 3 (not for sure) islands. After sailing around you need to sail straight in front of Goron Island. Then go south east (follow the outside of the row of rocks at the bottom of your map) until you find "Dee Ess" island. * If you are looking at your sea map, you will see Goron Island, and beside there you will see a row of rocks. You sail in front of Goron Island and then sail southeast and sail beside that row of rocks below Goron Island and you should find Dee Ess island. 3. Now you can play a game with the Gorons!

The Goron Game is a mini-game from The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass . This race can be found on Dee Ess Island , located in the southeastern quadrant. Each game costs 50 Rupees to play. The game is not actually played by Link ; rather, Gongoron must be controlled through the course while destroying the 30 crystals placed around the island. If he breaks all 30 crystals and reaches the finish line in the time limit, Link will receive one of a multitude of possible prizes, including Ship Parts , Rupees, Treasures , and a Bombchu Bag . Initially, the time limit is set to 35 seconds, but if the record is broken, the new time limit is the time that Gongoron finished the race in. Throughout the course are speed panels, which provide temporary boosts to Gongoron's speed.

The Goron Game becomes available only after Link clears the Temple of Ice and has received Gongoron's letter from the Postman . It is also possible to get the letter before clearing the mentioned temple if the northeastern sea chart is obtained early. If Link arrives to Dee Ess Island and talk to the game's operator prior to clearing the Temple of Ice, the game's operator will inform him that the preparations are not complete yet, as he has not found yet a part-time employee, and thus, the Goron Game is closed. However, some time after Link has cleared the Temple of Ice, he will receive two letters from the Postman. The first letter is from Aroo who thanks Link for saving him and from the clutches of the evil, and the second letter is from Gongoron, informing him that he left Goron Island and went to work as part-time employee in Dee Ess Island. After receiving this letter, the game is now open to Link for 50 Rupees.
