---------------------- 1)- Getting Started ---------------------------

Catching Poes can be tricky and deadly, so make sure you know what 
you're doing.

1) Poes will only appear at night (unless they are in a dungeon or 

2) Poes can only be seen when in wolf form and using your "sense" 
ability. You can spot a Poes lantern when in human form, but you cant 
fight him.

3) POES ARE DEADLY! They carry scythes and take away one heart per 

4) Poes can fly, giving them an advantage. Use jump attacks for the 
best effect. 

5) Poes can be found at any point in the game, even before talking to 
Jovai... provided you have the items to reach them, which you wont 
except for a few.

6) After hitting the Poe a couple of times, it will fall to the ground 
and a black orb will rise out of its chest. Z-target the orb and hit 
A. You will leap into the air, land on the Poe, and rip out its soul 
(the black orb). If you don't, the Poe will come back to life after a 
few seconds and the battle will begin anew. 

Ok, I think that covers it. Now lets kill some Poes!

----------------------- 2)- Poe Soul locations -----------------------


--------------------- 2.1)- Ordona Province --------------------------

P.1: Faron Woods: In the swamp area, transform into a wolf and follow 
Mindas lead to a big hollow stump. The Poe is right there, cant miss 

--------------------- 2.2)- Faron Province ---------------------------

P.2: Hyrule Field (Faron): This Poe floats over a cliff just north of 
a shallow body of water.  

P.3: Sacred Woods: This Poe floats over one of the skull kids hiding 
places: on the large stump. You have to pass under a water fall and 
climb over some roots to get him.

P.4: Temple of Time: After optioning the Doman Rod, in the room with 
the giant scale, use the small statues to lift you up high enough to 
reach the grapple point in the middle of the ceiling. From there, use 
your spinner to reach the ledge above the scale. The Poe should be 
right in front of you.

P.5: Temple of Time: On the east side of the third floor there is a 
Poe behind a gold gate. Use the Domain Rod to guide a small statue on 
the wall behind the gate to the switch on the floor. Attack the Poe 
once the gate opens.

P.6: Temple of Time: Use the Domain Rod to move the statue in the 
opening chamber. A Poe lantern will fly out from behind the wall.

P.7: Sacred Grove: Go east from the main temple ground to where you 
first fought the Skull Kid. Destroy the rock in the middle of the room 
to reveal a Poe.

P.8: Sacred Grove: After completing the Temple of Time, return to 
where you found the Master Sword. There is a Poe floating near the 

--------------------- 2.3)- Eldin Province ---------------------------

P.9: Hyrule Field (Eldin): There is a Poe near a tree on the hill just 
east (of the south side) of the Kakariko Gorge Bridge.

P.10: Lantern Cave (1): The Lantern Cave is south-west from the 
Kakariko Gorge warp point in Eldin. You should see a bombable wall 
along the cliff. The Poe is in the northwest section of the cave.

P.11: Kakariko Village: This Poe is at the West end of Kakariko 
Village Graveyard. 

P.12: Kakariko Village: go to Kakariko Village Graveyard, transform 
into a wolf, then push the gravestone in the southeast corner of the 

P.13: Kakariko Village: Remember that building you blew up when 
looking for the Tears of Light? Yeah, go back there (from inside Barns 
Bomb Shop, climb to the top and exit through the door in the roof, 
then follow the cliff south) and you'll see a Poe.

P.14: Kakariko Village: From the blown up building (see above), turn 
about and follow the zig-zaging path to the very top of the cliff. 
There is a Poe waiting for you there (careful not to fall off!).

P.15: Death Mountain: After obtaining the Clawshot, return to the 
Howling Stone on Death Mountain. From there, look north to see some 
moss hanging from a ledge. Clawshot onto it and follow the high ground  
south. Eventually, you will see a Poe (careful not to fall off 

P.16: Hidden Village: This Poe is on a balcony (what's with Poes and 
high places?) on a house in the villages northeast corner. There is a 
net you can clawshot onto on the west side of the house. Follow the 
ledge around and claim another Poe.

--------------------- 2.4)- Lanayru Province -------------------------

P.17: Castle Town: This Poe is in Jovani's house. Simple enough, 

P.18: Hyrule Field (Lanyru): Use the Castle Town portal. From there go 
south. You'll find the Poe in the ancient amphitheater.

P.19: Zora's Waterfall: Warp to Zora's domain and ride the waterfall 
down. Now turn west and swim over to the small patch of land. Follow 
the incline around until you spot the Poe. 

P.20: Zora's Domain: From the lake at Zora's waterfall, transform into 
a wolf and travel to the  east embankment. With Mindas help travel up 
the side of the cliff. Somewhere along the way you will met up with a 

P.21: Zora's River: Warp to Upper Zora's River. There is a small patch 
of land at the south end. Swim there to claim another soul.

P.22: Hyrule Field (Lanayru): There is a haunted bridge at the north 
end of Hyrule Field. De-haunt it.

P.23: Hyrule Field (Lanayru): From the haunted bridge (above) travel 
east. There should be a ring of tall grass near some trees. Use your 
senses and dig there. The Poe is inside the cave.

P.24: Hyrule Field (Lanayru): Same as P.23

P.25: Hyrule Field (Lanayru): Take Castle Towns south exit. Continue 
heading south to confront another Poe. 

P.26: Hyrule Field (Lanayru): Take Castle Towns east exit. The Poe 
hovers over the bridge before you. 

--------------------- 2.4.1)- Lake Hylia -----------------------------

P.27: From hyrule Field (Faron), take the North entrance into lake 
hylia. From there, follow the winding path and keep an eye on the 
western cliff. Eventually, you should see some bombalbe rocks. Destroy 
them with bomb arrows to reveal clawshot targets. Clawshot around 
until you come to a chest, and a Poe.

P.28: Lake Hylia: This Poe is at the south-west end of lake hylia. 
You'll see his lantern floating over a small patch of land just south 
of the waterfall. 

P.29: Lake Hylia: warp to the Lake Hylia Warp point. Now go west along 
the path, then turn and look south. You should see a Poe lantern 
floating over one of the ledges. Carefully navigate the series of 
jumps and claim your prize.

P.30: Lake Hylia: In the southeast corner of Lake Hylia is a tall 
tower on a ledge. At the top of the tower (again with the high 
places!) is your next target.

P.31: Lake Hylia: This Poe is on a cliff on Lake Hylia's north wall 
just below the cabin. Take a ride in the cannon up to the cabin, then 
ride by Cucco to the ledge (take a sharp U-turn just after clearing 
the cabin). 

P.32: Take Fabi's Flight-by-Fowl challenge and try to land on the 
prize platform with the Poe (you should be able to see his lantern).

P.33: Lantern Cave (2): South of the Howling Stone in Lake Hylia is 
another Lantern Cave. This one is much longer then the first. As such, 
make sure you stock up on bombs, lantern oil, arrows, and a bottled 
fairy never hurt. But because its bigger, it can house more Poes; 
three to be exact. Follow the cave from start to finish and bomb 
everything in your way to claim all three souls that are scattered 
throughout  the cave.

P.34: Lantern Cave (2): Same as P.33

P.35: Lantern Cave (2): Same as P.33

--------------------- 2.5)- Desert Province --------------------------

P.36: Gerudo Desert: After landing Gerudo Desert (from the cannon in 
Lake Hylia), go south until you see a large rock. A Poe is waiting 

P.37: Gerudo Desert: This Poe is located at the middle-southeast side 
of the Desert. You should see a mound of sand with a large stone 
structure on top. The stone structure is the West Eldin Bridge, so 
warp it to its proper location. Afterwards, return to the same spot. 
There is a Poe waiting for you there.

P.38: Cave of Ordeals: The creator you created (see above) opens the 
passage to the Cave of Ordeals.  The first Poe is located on the 17th 

P.39: Cave of Ordeals: (see above) 31st floor.
P.40: Cave of Ordeals: (see above) 44th floor. 

P.41: Gerudo Desert: There is a tree on a sand bluff at the middle-
northeast side of the Desert (it should appear as a small outlined 
figure on the warp map). Grapple to the tree with the clawshot. You 
should now see a Poe hovering over three skulls nearby.

P.42: Gerudo Desert: In the exact same spot as P.41 was located, use 
your senses to spot a place to dig. Dig to uncover an underground cave 
where your next mark lays in wait. 

P.43: Gerudo Desert: Same as P.42.

P.44: Gerudo Desert: There are narrow, sandy paths between the main 
Desert and the enemy encampment in the northeast. Follow the path to 
the east to find a Poe. 

P.45: Gerudo Desert: After you defeat King Bulblin (the axe wielding 
goblin thing), return to the scene of the battle to fight your next 
soul carrying Poe.

P.46: Gerudo Desert: When you're walking up the step toward the 
Arbiter's Grounds entrance, go east at the mezzanine. Just ahead 
should be another Poe.  

P.47: Arbiter's Grounds: The next four souls are key to the story line 
and function as mini-bosses. Capturing them means completing the 
Arbiter's Grounds Temple. Hence, if you want to know there location, 
see a game guide not a Poe guide.

P.48: Arbiter's Grounds: Same as P.47

P.49: Arbiter's Grounds: Same as P.47

P.50: Arbiter's Grounds: Same as P.47

----------------------- 2.6)- Peak Province---------------------------

P.51: Snowpeak Area: A Poe hovers near a tree in the southern-central 
area between the frozen lake and the warp point (near the bend on the 

P.52: Snowpeak Area: A little farther up the road from P.51 is another 
Poe near a large rock.

P.53: Explore the Reekfish-scent area between P.51 and the cave at the 
top. Like P.51, this Poe haunts a tree. 

P.54: Snowpeak Cave: In the cave between the Snowpeak Area and 
Snowpeak Summit, there is a Poe behind a wall of ice. Use the ball and 
chain to set it "free." 

P.55: Snowpeak Area: Go south after exiting the Snowpeak Ruins to find 
a large mound of snow... You guessed it, the Poe is on top. There 
should be a winding path along the edge of the mound... and try not to 
fall off.

P.56: Snowpeak Ruins: Right as you enter you should see a lantern 
floating in the foyer. Make it less floaty.  

P.57: Snowpeak Ruins: Just inside the entrance, you will see 6 suits 
of armor (three on each side). One of them hides a Poe. Time to play 
hide-and-seek with a ball-and-chain.

P.58: Snowpeak Ruins: In the southwestern room on the second floor use 
your ball and chain to break the ice barrier on the west wall. A Poe 
is in the now-exposed alcove.

------------------------ 7)- City in the Sky -------------------------

P.59: City in the Sky: A Poe is hiding on the east wing of the third 
floor in the City in the Sky. From the northern entrance, se the 
flying plants to hover over two walls, then grab onto a south-flying 
plant. Wile flying, grab onto one more plant and drop to face the Poe. 

P.60: City in the Sky: There's a Poe near the room with the Big Key. 
Climb ivy as a human and walk ropes as a wolf to reach the east side 
of the fourth floors central room. You'll find the Poe near a treasure 
chest on a precarious platform. 

--------------------------- 3)- Jovai --------------------------------

Jovai. The reason you go through the trouble of tracking down 60 dead 

Jovai's house is located in West Castle Town, down the ally just 
before the one that leads to Telma's Bar. You first encounter Jovai on 
your way out of Hyrule Castle after completing the Lakebed Temple 
(you'll see). After this first encounter, you can enter his house by 
going to his front door, transforming into a wolf, then digging near 
the wall to the right of the door.

Now, down to business. After you collect 20 Poe souls, visit Jovai and 
he will give you a bottle with Fairy Tears inside. If you collect 60 
Poe souls, he gives you 200 rupees then leaves his house. Go to 
Telma's bar to find him sulking in the corner. Talk to him, then 
return to his house and talk to his cat. His cat will give you another 
200 rupees. Leave Castle Town, come back, talk to his cat, earn 200 
rupees. Rinse and repeat as much as you like.
