The Temple of the Elders is the fifth and penultimate level. Unlike the first four levels, the fifth level does not have an alternative area, so the fifth level is always the Temple of the Elders.

Notes[edit | edit source]

This level has a Divine Teleporter in the place of a regular teleporter. Subsequent levels will also have Divine Teleporters.

On the left is the Temple, which has three floors.

Percentage Health Shrines can be found on this level, as well as potential golden chests.

Variants[edit | edit source]

Artifact[edit | edit source]

Level 5 Variant 1, Artifact

Jumping off the right edge of the map and falling down onto a platform there will put the player at the start of a jumping puzzle leading half way back across the level where they will find the artifact gate and the Spirit artifact.

It should be noted that the pillars could be referencing the pillars in Cave Story in the level 'Bottom of the Island.'

There are no platforms or Artifact found in Variant 2.

Golden chest[edit | edit source]

Level 5 Variant 2, Golden Chest

There is always a golden chest at the highest platform of the right side of the map. It appears to only be reachable with a Photon Jetpack or stacked jumping assist items. However, part of the platform is illusory; with significantly fewer items than expected (e.g. two Hopoo Feathers), one can jump left from the highest of the small platforms and will enter into the wall. From here a single jump will reach the top of the platform.

The chest can be opened with Explorer's Key for the Captain's Brooch achievement even if the player can't reach the reward.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

In the background of the stage, the silhouette of the wrecked ship "UES Contact Light" can be seen.

Silhouette of the "UES Contact Light"

The silhouette hints to and matches the layout of the final stage of the game.
