Grail Tablet,
Chamber of Extinction (F-5)

The Chamber of Extinction (Japanese: 死滅の碑, "Shimetsu no Ishibumi" / lit. "Monument of Extinction") is a field blanketed in darkness, the entire area and its contents appearing charred and melted from intense heat.

Most of the rooms are pitch black, making it difficult to see traps ahead. Several blue square "torches" can be found which when hit with the Flare Gun will temporarily light the field before going out again. It is possible to permanently light the field later from the Chamber of Birth.

There are two sub-sections that cannot be directly reached from the Grail Tablet. The rightmost area from (G-2) to (I-3) can only be reached after defeating Viy and contains Palenque's Ankh. The upper path from (C-1) to (F-1) can only be reached after defeating Palenque.

In some rooms the walls can be destroyed to reveal Coins or Ammo.

If you move to F-4 then come back, those blocks will be there again for coins. With Bracelet and Axe, you will keep getting coins in every few seconds, earning about 400 coins before Item Fairy disappears.


Using the more literal Japanese name, "Monument of Extinction", it makes much more sense why Palenque is sealed inside a mural.
