Cave of Flames

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia
S5 Cave of Flames

Cave of Flames is one of the many levels in Wario Land 3. It is located in the south part of the Music Box World. The player can gain access to it after getting the third music box in Sea Turtle Rocks. This is one of the three levels that takes place in a mountain.

As its name implies, this level is a dark cave situated in a mountain which is not volcanic. It contains a bomb, a series of Bonfire Blocks and a strange teleportation door which if Wario enters with an enemy in his hands, the enemy will disappear.

This is one of the three levels that have an iron wall. Wario needs the Rust Spray from the Castle of Illusions to destroy it and access new areas.

Treasures[edit]

Gray Chest: Scepter[edit]

Scepter

The Scepter[1] is in the Gray Chest located down the ladder at the entrance of the level. Hot Wario must break the Bonfire Blocks to the left. After that, Wario has to pick up the Spearhead and use it to break the blocks to the right. Note that there is a door between the blocks and the left side, and if Wario goes through it with the Spearhead, the Spearhead will disappear. After the blocks are broken, he has to roll over and break the blocks that block access to the Gray Key.

As for the Gray Chest, Wario has to get back where the ladder is and go right avoiding the blue birds, then open it with the key.

This treasure purifies the murky water in The Frigid Sea, Sea Turtle Rocks, and The Big Bridge.

Red Chest: Minicar[edit]

Wario finds the Minicar

The Minicar[2] is in the Red Chest, which requires the High Jump Boots from The Colossal Hole. Upon entering the cave, Wario must bounce off the blue bird to reach a door and enter it. Here, Wario must avoid the Count Richtertoffens' attacks until he gets right above the Red Key. He has to wait until a Richtertoffen shakes the ground to make him fall and grab the key.

Then, he has to let one of the Richtertoffens turn him into a Flat Wario to get past the small gap, then go into the water to turn into his normal self. Then, he has to process to another area. Here, Wario has to use some enemies to get to the top, and let the Doughnuteer there feed him a cake and turn him fat. Then, Wario has to get back to the Richtertoffens' area and break the cake blocks blocking the way to the chest. When done so, Wario must simply open the chest containing the Minicar.

Green Chest: Pouch[edit]

The Pouch with the Eye of the Storm

The Pouch[2] is in the Green Chest, which is only accessible after blowing up the bomb found in this level using the Explosive Plunger Box found in Beneath the Waves. Wario has to make his way to a warp pipe (which was blocked by a wall before the bomb blew up). Wario must enter it. Here, Wario must let the Mad Scienstein turn him invisible. Then, Wario has to make his way to a protected gate. Using his ability, he can get pass it and grab the Green Key.

Then, he has to use Hot Wario to get rid of the Bonfire Blocks in the upper part of the area. Then, he has to turn into Invisible Wario again and go explore the next area. Here, Wario has to avoid the jumping fish and the Brrr Bears and get pass the protected gate. A Brrr Bear there can turn him into his old self. Finally, Wario has to roll down a slope, avoid the lava, break the two blocks blocking the way to the chest and get the treasure.

This treasure, along with the Eye of the Storm, makes leaves fall in Out of the Woods.

He has to use the first two as platforms and the last one to turn flat. Then, Wario has to exit this area. He will now reach the Blue Chest area.
