- This is the Twin Labyrinths. A place where twin souls reside.
- --Grail tablets for the Twin Labyrinths
The Twin Labyrinths (双連迷宮, Sōren Meikyū / also literally Labyrinth of Bisociation) is a field within the ruins. The area is actually two areas; each area is a mirror of the other. The left half of the labyrinths is the frontside area (teleported to normally), and the right half is the backside area (teleported to with the help of Antarctic Adventure and Comic Bakery).
- Area number: 7
- Attempting to teleport to backside 7 will also bring the player here, though on the right side of the area.
- Background music: "Grand Ritual"
- Enter from / Exit to: Mausoleum of the Giants, Temple of the Sun, Inferno Cavern, Shrine of the Mother, Dimensional Corridor, Temple of Moonlight
- Boss: Baphomet
- Sub-Boss: Roc
Initially, the player can only explore a small portion of the labyrinths; a little more can be explored by obtaining the Twin Statue from the Endless Corridor. To explore the labyrinths in its entirety, the player must enter from the Temple of the Sun into a gas-filled section and activate two pedestals within 30 seconds, lest the player faint and respawn just outside the enterance to the labyrinths. Once this puzzle is solved, all of the door-blocking statues, along with the poison gas, will disappear.
