The Forest Temple is a dungeon featured in Spirit Tracks. It is the first temple within the game that Link must explore in order to restore its energy to the fragmented Tower of Spirits. The main item obtained is the Whirlwind, and the temple's boss is Stagnox.

Entrance to the Dungeon

The temple is located northwest of the Forest area of Hyrule, and is accessible after Link and Gage perform a Lokomo Duet in the Forest Sanctuary, which in turn is found after the young hero crosses a maze in the forest during a train travel. Left of the temple's inner entrance is a statue that teaches Link the Song of Healing.

Themes and Navigation

Link using the Whirlwind to reach a key

It has the appearance of an Aztec-like pyramid with a giant tree growing atop it. Many elements from Phantom Hourglass are present within the dungeon including the statues that reveal chests within the temple for a small fee. Items such as Demon Fossils and Wooden Hearts are found here, as well as the Whirlwind, the main treasure of the temple that is also critical to defeat the boss of the temple. Mothula serves as the dungeon's mini-boss, while the boss is a large stag beetle-like creature called Stagnox, who has stolen the temple's Force Gem from its beacon atop the temple and thus is responsible for the deactivation of the temple's energy beacon.

Link defeats the creature atop the temple by using the Whirlwind to turn its weaknesses and attacks on itself, therefore exposing it to his own attacks. Following Stagnox's defeat, the temple's Force Gem is restored to its energy beacon, restoring the temple's energy flow to the Tower of Spirits and causing a segment of the tower to reconnect to the base, completing the hero's first task to restore the tower to its original state.

Minor Traps and Enemies


  • In the European version of Spirit Tracks, this temple is named Wooded Temple instead of Forest Temple, possibly to avoid confusion with the other Forest Temples of the series.
  • The dungeon's boss, Stagnox, may be the mother of all the Blastworms seen in the temple. This is supported by the fact that Stagnox releases young Blastworms during one segment of its boss fight.
