Shantae Wiki

Dribble Fountain entrance, with Bolo.

Dribble Fountain is the first labyrinth in Shantae. It is located between Scuttle Town and Water Town and is where Shantae first obtains the Monkey Dance from a Guardian Genie.

To gain access, speak to Bolo at Bolo's Gazeebo in Water Town, then meet him at the labyrinth entrance afterward.

The labyrinth is inhabited by liquid creatures known as WetMen.[1] It features several rotating block puzzles and moving platform rooms.


I only just noticed that it also has horns.

The boss, a giant metal floating cyclops thing, which Shantae refers to as "huge slimy tentacle monster",[1] guards its treasure the

. It is a simple boss but can be difficult if you are either impatient or sloppy.

  • Jump and strike it in the face as it spins back and forth up there, but be cautious with your timing so you aren't hurt as well.
  • When it leaves the screen, that means it will soon slide along the bottom. Be ready to jump!
  • Usually immediately following the above attack, it will drop its eye into the waters and cause a flood. Be ready for this by transforming into the monkey and scale the wall (hold Controls-up.png instead of jumping repeatedly like you might think) to avoid this. Get high enough and you won't be hit.

Baby Warp Squids

# Required Description Screen
1 - In the green lit chamber following the first encounter with a shapeshifting water elemental miniboss, this one can be found just sitting on a pile of pink blocks. Scr dribble ws2.png
2 - In a hidden room accessible by crawling under an overhang of pink stones at the bottom of the shaft in the chamber immediately to the right of where the white worm platforms first appear. Scr dribble ws1.png
3 To the west of the Guardian Genie chamber there is a baby warp squid on a raised platform.

It is also reachable without the monkey transformation by pushing the stone block from the destroyed pillar on the right, only if the stone block hasn't been used yet.

4 / In the room that must be reached by running over a succession of pits with jumping fish in them, there are little indents in the ceiling indicating a secret passage. You can get up here with the Monkey, but if you have trouble you can just come back with the Harpy form, since you'll need to come back anyway to get the last one. Be sure to ride all the way up, as there are two floors in this secret passage, and the baby's up there on the second one. Scr dribble fountain ws4.png
5 / Atop a platform you can't initially reach in the platform/water/jumping eye fish section near the start. Come back later with the Spider or Harpy form and either climb the background blue grid as the Spider or fly as the Harpy. Scr dribble fountain ws5.png
