Entrance to the Grotto
Found on the shores of Crescent Island, the entrance to the dungeon is the mouth of a statue of a Tokay. The Tokay consider this statue to be their guardian. However, it is unknown exactly who built the statue.
This grotto-themed dungeon with sandy-colored flooring features two different floors. The dungeon is likely named after the shape of its two floors, which resemble crescent moons. Much like the Eagle's Tower in Link's Awakening, Link must collapse one of the floors to progress through the dungeon. This is accomplished by destroying the four crystals spread across the dungeon. Within the Grotto, Link will encounter Subterror, a mole-like monster, and find the Seed Shooter along the way. The Seed Shooter, which allows Link to fire Mystical Seeds as projectiles, is essential to completing many puzzles in the dungeon. After defeating the Poe-like Shadow Hag, the dungeon's boss, Link can claim the third Essence of Time, the Echoing Howl.
