The Forgotten Caves is the third area Simon explores in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate, as well as the third area overall in the game.

Overview

The sub-entrance leads into the Forgotten Caves, which are essentially more watery depths, filled with rope bridges, broken bridge structures, and an unwelcoming pool of water waiting below; if you should decide to take a swim, the electric mermen tadpoles will attempt to rush you, urging you to stay in motion using your new underwater swimming technique. Simon will tangle with some merman before shimmying across connecting ropes while under duress from steam-releasing vents. After another skirmish with mermen, he'll have to ledge-jump and generally climb out from this abyss.

After some effort, he'll again meet the silent Lost Soul, which learns him that his father's Combat Cross is still in the castle. In following, he'll do more climbing and dodge more steam vents before finding his dead mother Sypha's spirit, which is essential for crossing beneath a damaging, soul-infested waterfall that showers the area's exit point. He'll first test it out in a forced battle against mermen and harpies. When the coast is clear, he can head back to the deadly waterfall and pass beneath it using his new magic power.
