The Underground Maze is the Zelda series-themed level found in Adventure Mode in Super Smash Bros. Melee. It is designed like a labyrinth, with branching pathways, and also has Zelda enemies, such as ReDeads, Like Likes, and Octoroks.
There are six open spaces in the dungeon, one of which contains a pedestal with the Triforce, which is the stage's exit. The other five contain a pedestal with a Master Sword, which will summon Link to fight the player. If all five Links are defeated before the Triforce is reached, the player will receive the Link Master bonus. The location of the Triforce is random.
The Underground Maze is available through hacking, though entering one of the open areas may cause unwanted results, such as the game crashing or the match ending.
In The Legend of Zelda, Link had to go through underground labyrinths called dungeons. In each dungeon, Link had to explore the dungeon in order to find keys and other items to proceed through the dungeon. If Link missed something, he had to backtrack and find it at some point. In Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, the dungeons were renamed to palaces and used a side-scrolling format, which added platforming elements. In Melee's Adventure Mode, there is a Zelda-themed level called Underground Maze. The level is similar to the dungeons in The Legend of Zelda and Adventure of Link, except there are no locked doors or keys to collect. Since the Super Smash Bros. games are side-scrolling games, the level has a side-scrolling format similar to Adventure of Link.
In both The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Link must pull the Master Sword from its pedestal. In Melee, if a player goes into a room that has the Master Sword in its pedestal, Link will appear and fight the player. The design of both the sword and pedestal is based around Ocarina of Time. In A Link to the Past, when Link is trying to find the Master Sword, he comes across multiple fake swords used as decoys for anybody looking for the real Master Sword. It unknown whether or not the Master Swords in the Adventure Mode in Melee are fake, but due to how many there are and how they just disappear, it could be just used as decoys for the player. In The Legend of Zelda, the goal of each dungeon is to find a piece of the Triforce of Wisdom in order to clear dungeon. In Melee, the goal of this level is to find the one room that contains the whole Triforce, as opposed to finding pieces of one Triforce like in The Legend of Zelda.
In The Legend of Zelda, a common enemy in above ground were Octoroks, which were land creatures that would shoot rocks at Link. In Ocarina of Time, Octoroks design has changed and are now aquatic creatures. In Melee, the Octoroks are land creatures, but are designed around their appearance in Ocarina of Time. Them shooting rocks at players was retained. In some dungeons in The Legend of Zelda, an enemy called Like Likes appear in some rooms. Like Likes were enemies that tried to eat Link. Link can defeat them while being inside them to free himself, but if Link has the Magical Shield, the shield will be gone and Link would have his old shield back. Like Likes also appeared in Ocarina of Time, but now they spit Link out after swallowing him. The Like Likes eats any shield Link has and any tunic he's wearing (with the exception of the Mirror Shield and the Kokiri tunic), but when Link defeats the Like Like, he gets his stuff back. In Melee, Like Likes appear as enemies and are designed around their appearance in Ocarina of Time. Their ability to eat the player is retained, but they do not steal items. Just as they did in Ocarina of Time, they spit the player out. In later dungeons of Ocarina of Time, enemies called ReDeads start appearing. They were enemies that paralyzed Link with a scream. They will jump on his back and bite his head, causing damage. In Melee, ReDeads also appear as enemies and will still grab onto a player to cause damage, but they do not paralyze the player.
