Golem Mine, adorned with golem faces.

Golem Mine is the second dungeon in Shantae. It is located in the Mens Desert and is where Shantae first obtains the Elephant Dance from a Guardian Genie.

2 You can see this one from the elevator, but you won't be able to reach it till later. Behind a locked door to the left of the elevator shaft is a room with a golem and four hanging lantern platforms.

3 In the chamber just above the shaft you scaled to reach the last warp squid, there are a bunch of blue lightning guys who rain bolts down on you. Go to the left and find the secret passage that leads you up to their level, and turn the tables on them. Once you've killed them all you'll find a baby warp squid to the right.
