The Great Bay Temple is the third dungeon in The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. While not as bad as the Water Temple from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time previously, this level is infamous for its difficulty.

Why It Sucks

  1. It has many of the same problems as the Water Temple:
    • Maze-like design.
    • Puzzles are annoying.
    • Switching the water levels is very repetitive.
  2. Cheap enemy placements.
  3. Dull music.
  4. When going for 100% completion, you must also find all Stray Fairies scattered around the level, and this can be tedious.
  5. Like with the other 3 dungeons, you must dedicate as much in-game time as possible, because if you are forced to use the Song of Time to return to Day 1, almost all your progress will be lost.
  6. Very annoying boss battle with Gyorg.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. This level introduces the Ice Arrows and unlike in Ocarina of Time, they are actually useful.
  2. The Zora mask and the freedom of movement it gives while underwater are a big improvement over the Iron Boots.
  3. Very colorful aesthetic.
