This is the ninety-fifth puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. To access this puzzle, try to leave through the door at the top. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out which key matches the one depicted in the plaque.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Look at the grip on each key.

    The one on the plaque has a triangular grip. Snake B's key has a square grip, so you can exclude B as a possibility.

Hint Two
    Following on from Hint 1, next take a look at the keys' teeth.

    It's hard to tell because the keys are all facing different directions, but if you compare them closely, the key depicted on the plaque has indentations on two sides--the side at the end and the side facing outward.

    Which other keys fit this description?

Hint Three
    Based on the second hint, it can't be A or D, because these have different indentations on the teeth.

    This leaves only C and E. What other differences could there be between the keys?

    In particular, think about the parts that are almost covered up by the snakes.

Super Hint
    Near the base of the grip of each key is a rectangular plate that can face one of two directions.

    Snakes C and E both cover up most of the this plate, but if you look closely, you can see which direction each one faces.

    Which one faces the same direction as on the plaque?

[edit] When Failed

Too bad.

Examine each part of the key individually, and compare the options closely.

[edit] When Completed


It's snake C that has the correct key. The next question on earth are they planning to get it out?

[edit] Solution

Snake C is holding the key.

[edit] Progress

3310 Picarats and 203 Hint Coins.
