Hyrule Warriors - Adventure Mode Map

Adventure Mode screenshot.

Adventure Mode (アドベンチャーモード) is a virtual board game experience. The main objective for each map to search for the key to the boss's dungeon and defeat the boss.

The modes are battles organized on a 16 x 8 square grid based on the original Zelda game's map. Elemental Fairies can be rescued to remove damaging elemental fields from enemy areas. Secondary objectives awarding a heart or Gold Skulltula may be present based on the selected player character or the stage. Score an "S" (Japan) or "A" (international) rank on some battle sequences to obtain heart containers, heart pieces, weapons, or alternate-color costumes for that character (these may require being unlocked by an item card first). Exclusive battle scenarios with varied allies and opponents are present.

Console DifferencesEdit

The Wii U and 3DS versions feature different map layouts and rewards. As the 3DS version includes the DLC content from the base title, rewards have been allocated to different maps.

Beating the first Adventure Map will unlock the Great Sea Map, then beating that unlocks the Master Quest Map. Beating that Map will automatically unlock both Termina and Twilight Maps.

Additional rules for this map include:

  • Speed Run: Players must complete the stage in under 15:00.
  • No Healing: Players are unable to use potions or find hearts during battle. Leveling up will not heal players as it usually does.
  • No Guarding: Players will always have their guard broken by all attacks. Dodges still work.
  • No Item Attacks: Players are unable to use their attack items, such as the bombs, during battle.
  • Don't Get Hit!: All allies die to a single attack; players will die if they are hit consecutively twice.

TerminaEdit

DLC only map that contains additional 8-bit weapon skins, masks for characters to wear, heart containers, heart pieces, and Gold Skulltulas.

Players are given a limited amount of time to traverse the area, losing one hour for each battle they participate in. When the time counter reaches zero, the moon will fall and reset the entire map to its initial state; Rupees, experience points, loot, and item cards acquired are still kept when this occurs. The counter can only be stopped by finding and defeating the Dark Ruler who is hidden somewhere on the map.

Map squares filled with owl statues are immune to the effects of the moon's descent; their protection also extends to other neighboring squares. To activate these statues, players must clear the square they reside in.

Certain battles may pit players against third-party forces in a fierce challenge. The competitor with the highest score wins.

  • KO-Count Competition: Compete to earn points by defeating enemies.
  • Rupee Competition: Compete to collect the most Rupees during battle. Stronger enemies carry more Rupees.
  • Keep-Taking Competition: Compete to capture the most keeps. Cooperate with allies to capture as many keeps as possible.

Great SeaEdit

A new map introduced in Legends, it is based on the overworld of The Wind Waker. Like the others, it has costumes for characters to wear, heart containers, heart pieces, and Gold Skulltulas. This map also contains all Lv. 2 weapons that cannot be unlocked in Legend Mode.

Map squares that contain hazards will cause different rules to affect battles. Items such as the Cannon, Boomerang, and Hero's Bow can get rid of these hazards. Special rules that apply to these squares are:

  • Don't Get Hit!: Squares with Big Octos will cause playable characters to die in a single hit. Use Boomerang to remove the Big Octo.
  • Double Damage: Squares with Warships will cause players to receive twice as much damage as usual. Use Cannon to remove the Warship.
  • No Attack Items: Squares with Tornadoes will prevent players from using offensive items in battle. Use Hero's Bow to remove the Tornado.

Hyrule Warriors Legends DLC only map that contains additional recolor costumes, heart containers, heart pieces, and Gold Skulltula, as well as Medli's Lv. 2 through 4 weapons.

Map squares that contain some of the same hazards as the Great Sea Map will cause different rules to affect battles. Using items on them will function the same as before. But like with the Master Quest Map, it also contains many new rules that cannot be ignored.

Endless Night Rules for this map include:

  • Speed Run: Players must complete the stage in under 20:00.

Koholint IslandEdit

Hyrule Warriors Legends DLC only map that contains additional recolor costumes, heart containers, heart pieces, weapon ranks, and Gold Skulltula. The Lv. 2-4 weapons for Marin and Linkle's Boots are found here. Unlike most Adventure Mode maps, this one does not come with any additional rules in order to challenge players. Rather, 8 of the 11 item cards are designed to empower the player to some degree, making it one of the easiest maps to explore.

With the Eight Instruments of the Sirens, the player must dissipate eight map squares infected with Nightmares, a black mist preventing players from accessing a square. Initially, the instruments are only capable of being used on these squares. Once all of the Nightmare squares have been cleansed with the instruments, players will be able to use them at any time.

The Koholint Map is designed to be used in terms of material farming, Rupee gathering, and generating experience points to level up characters.

Grand TravelsEdit

Hyrule Warriors Legends DLC only map that contains additional recolor costumes, heart containers, heart pieces, weapon ranks, and Gold Skulltula. The Lv. 2-4 weapons for Toon Zelda and Toon Link's Sand Wand are found here.
