Top 10 The Legend of Zelda Games With the Greatest Dungeons

The Top Ten

1 The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

So underrated. So good, in every way, including the dungeons. Plus, the wolf link dungeons were a cool addition. - Fat_Turtle_Gamez

Finally, a list that can appreciate this underrated game. This game had the best dungeons (well, after the water dungeon) Arbiter's ground was a spirit/shadow/forest temple, snowpeak ruins was fun and creative, temple of time had good puzzles, city in the sky had amazing atmosphere (plus double clawshot), and the castle had the face off with the green dude (whatever his name was), it had a great tone, and a mini sidequest for an extra key to a supply room.

Good list. This game is severely underrated.

Good call definitely has the best dungeons.

2 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

I loved all of the adult dungeons, with the spooky forest temple, and the awesome spirit temple.

Come on people this is OOT were talking about it's THE best Zelda game with THE best dungeons.!.!.!

I feel like the dungeons on OoT were very memorable. The reason for this may be that this was the first Legend of Zelda game I sat down to do a full run through of. The Forest Temple was a really cool experience. The atmosphere was just excellent. I’ll never forget the Water Temple. A piece of cake now, easily the most frustrating during a first attempt. The coolest part of the Water Temple was probably Dark Link. The Fire Temple was pretty interesting. Since I own the older cartridge, the original music plays with chanting and it is really eerie. Then there’s the Shadow Temple. I don't know why but all I think of is the Lens of Truth, that weird boat, and Bongo Bongo because that’s basically it as I remember. The Spirit Temple was just downright gorgeous. Loved the whole mirror shield thing. I can't forget about the few mini dungeons either. One of the most memorable mini dungeons was probably the Bottom of the Well because you know, Dead Hand. And the music in the Ice Cavern ...more

3 The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

Best dongueons so good

I loved the number of dungeons

4 The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
5 The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Ancient cistern and sandship I enjoyed, and the rest were ok

Has the most creative Dongens

I agree with this list! TP, SS, and OoT are the best!

6 The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

May have only had 4 dungeons but the dungeon design in my opinion is some of the best in the series. (yep I even liked the great bay temple) Only liked a few of OOT's dungeons to be honest. - TheMaelstromKing

This game is so amazing and it may only have 4 dungeons but they made them extra awesome and hard. By the way anyone who thinks its bad sucks at life and important decisions!

Only Great Bay Temple was bad. The other 3 dungeons were amazing and fun to play. - MaxPap

I mean... Stone tower temple was awesome, but the rest of the dungeons...

7 The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

I liked some of the concepts, like tower of the gods, but none created that atmosphere, likely because the cell shaded graphics didn't do them justice

The dungeons in this game are fun! - MaxPap

8 The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

I loved the Van Rutiana Divine Beast/Dungeon

I don't know if it counts but I prefered the Shrine system over bigger or more dungeons and the Divine Beast were great with their environmental puzzles.

Breath of the wild has really cool divine beast dungeons where you can actually change the dungeon with your shekiah slate. The Vah Naboris dungeon is my favorite

9 The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap
10 The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening

The Contenders

11 The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks
12 The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages
13 The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass

I will remove this from the list with these five words: Temple of The Ocean King

This Game has bad dungeons overall temple of the ocean king

14 The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons
