A Big Poe residing in the Haunted Wasteland, the Phantom Guide is a character in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Unlike the typical Poe, their role is to aid Link in his perilous journey through the sands.

[edit] The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Following the crossing of the River of Sands and successfully navigating his way through the sands by following the flags, Link happens across a small stone landmark. On top of this is a plaque that states only the person with the eye of truth will be guided toward the Spirit Temple and in doing so the Desert Colossus. A recurring description, the eye of truth is in fact the Lens of Truth, which when used allows Link to see the Phantom Guide.

Following a quick explanation, the Phantom Guide will begin to move away from Link who then has to follow him through the sands. As well as having to successfully navigate the sands and keep the Poe in sight, Link will also have to contend with attacks from nearby Leevers. Following all this Link will have completed the trial and be safely in the Desert Colossus.

This path can be remembered and successfully traveled without the Poe, but is very hard to do. It should also be noted that the Phantom Guide will only lead Link to the Desert Colossus and will not be there to take him back again.
