- For the main article, see Power Seals.
Power Seal #1
In a room with rising and falling lava with a swinging spike pendulum, wait for the lava to recede and climb down to the bottom of the room. Head left a couple of rooms to reach the Power Seal room.
Power Seal #2
In 8-bit, in the first shop checkpoint room, head right into the next room. In the upper-right corner are two breakable blocks. Break the blocks and head up into the Power Seal room. Navigate the air currents and avoid the sawblades to reach the Power Seal.
Power Seal #3
In 8-bit, in the room with the Scurubu, trigger the vertical spike platform to head right. Drop down through the lower-left platform and into the Power Seal room. Slash the Magic Fireflies for Cloudstep while heading right to reach the Power Seal.
Power Seal #4
In the lower-right corner of the room containing Power Seal #3, use "Aerobatics warrior" to destroy the breakable blocks. Head down into the next room which contains Power Seal #4. Either Cloudstep off of the Demon Hives or walk across the lava using the Lightfoot Tabi in order to reach the Power Seal.
The Shopkeeper's Dialogue
** = Only occurs if you haven't previously encountered this dialogue in Cloud Ruins.
Initial Dialogue, First Visit**
|Shopkeeper||Welcome to the Lion's Den.|
|Ninja||Oh? I didn't see any lions.|
|Shopkeeper||No I meant... ah never mind.|
|Ninja||This heat is almost unbearable.|
|Shopkeeper||Come on, I'm happy to avoid certain clichés, but to think we wouldn't have lava to end your epic quest is pushing it.|

Initial Dialogue, Second Visit**
|Shopkeeper||Looks like the Demon General is up next. Be careful out there, I hear he's pretty fast.|
- In the room before the Barma'thazël boss fight is a statue on each side of the room of a small demon holding a pike while it is sitting on the rim of a cauldron. This is a reference to The Shopkeeper's story in the Underworld.
