Zelda franchise strategy guide/Locations/Subrosia

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.

Subrosia is a secret subterranean world found in the video game The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons. It is inhabited by Subrosians, a mysterious hooded race who live in the many volcanoes found in the land. It is possible that the name is derived from the Latin expression "sub rosa", which literally means "under the rose," and conveys secrecy. The Temple of Seasons also resides here.

Subrosia is the location of Level 8: Sword & Shield Maze. This is the location of the Hyper Slingshot, Frypolar, and Medelock (Mini-boss and Boss). Subrosia is also the location of the Smelter (where you get the iron shield[red and blue ore]), the shop, the flower bomb, and the star-shaped ore.

During the course of the game, it is possible to get one of many collectible magical rings that alters the player's appearance to that of a Subrosian. During the use of this ring, however, the player cannot use any weapons or items.
