Armos Shake Storage

Armos Shake Storage is a glitch that can allow one to access the Lumberjack dropdown without the Pegasus Boots.

Execution

If the final Armos is defeated while the screen is shaking from the stomp, a nonzero screen offset is preserved. With this nonzero screen offset, you can just walk by the lumberjack tree and the sprite covering the hole will be knocked down.

Storing the Shake

To perform Armos Shake Storage, the following criteria must be met:

  1. Aga 1 must be defeated.
  2. You must be able to Save and Quit to the Pyramid from an Armos fight (Or the castle in Inverted Mode).
  3. If you cannot Save and Quit to the Pyramid, you must be able to defeat armos as the boss of a pendant dungeon (Picking up a crystal will break the glitch)

To arm this glitch, simply defeat the last Armos while the screen is shaking to store the offset. After storing the offset, either collect the pendant or Save and Quit to the Overworld. With the offset stored, walk by the lumberjack tree and the sprite covering the hole will be knocked down allowing you to access the Lumberjack dropdown.


Losing the Offset

Any of the following actions will zero the offset and break the glitch.

  • Mirroring to the start of a dungeon will break the glitch.
  • Entering/Exiting or transitioning within the Underworld at anytime as this breaks the glitch.
  • Using the Flute will also break the glitch. (Note: For this reason, you can only use this in Inverted if you are able to Save and Quit to the castle. There is no (minor glitch) way to descend from Death Mountain and maintain the offset.
