The Adventure of Link
In The Adventure of Link, Moruge Swamp is a swamp situated directly to the north of the Water Town of Saria. To get to the swamp, Link must first obtain the Jump Spell from the Town of Ruto, and then pass through the cave south of the town. The swamp borders a mountain range to the north, and a cave blocked by a boulder can be found where it borders said mountain range. By opening the cave using the Hammer found in Death Mountain, Link will be able to enter the cave infested with Daira. It is at the end of the cave that the young hero finds the Water of Life, which he gives to the mother of a sick girl in the Harbor Town of Mido to receive the Fairy Spell from an Old Man. A 1-Up Link Doll and a Fairy can also be found around the swamp.
Link has to cross its motion-inhibiting mire on his way to the Water Town of Saria during his quest to wake Princess Zelda.
- This is the first swamp to appear in the series.
- The Japanese name of this swamp can be translated as "Morgue Swamp", which ties it in with other morbidly named locations such as Death Mountain and the Valley of Death.
- ↑ "'And that's a carving of a swamp. But which swamp, Midoro or Moluge?'" (The Crystal Trap (Archway), pg. 30)
- ↑ "'Hmm,' he says. 'Maybe I should bypass the swamp and go west, by Ruto Town. Of course, there's still Moruge Swamp to the south of Ruto, but that's safer than Midoro." (The Shadow Prince (Mammoth), pg. 111)
