pictures: Go to where Zelda is met for the first time. Look into the window
on her left, as you enter. Pictures of Yoshi, Princess Toadstool, Mario,
Bowser and Luigi can be seen. Look from different angles to see them all.
Throw something into the window with Mario to receive 20 rupees. Throwing
something into the other window will result in a lit bomb being thrown back
As a child, go to Lon Lon ranch
and a little girl will be singing. Look down at her shirt to see a small
When you enter Zelda's castle
and talk to her near the end of the game as Adult Link, on your right is a
picture of Luigi and Mario.
When you first exit from Links
house, look to your left (when facing the house). You will see a couple of
drawings on Link's house. Hold C-Up to see them better.
When you talk to Princess
Zelda, after you have collected the Forest Stone from the Deku Tree, both
sides of the courtyard have windows. On one side are three to four pictures
of other Nintendo characters. The other side appears to be empty. However,
if you shoot a Deku Seed with the Fairy Sling Shot at the empty window, you
will see a little "Easter egg" from the programmers.
open boxes: To break open a regular brown wooden box, just run at it and
press A. Link will roll and smash open the box. This is useful when
finding all the chickens and to get a Skulltula in the Marketplace room with
from trees: Roll into a tree in Hyrule field or in a town. The tree will
randomly give Rupees, Hearts, Deku Nuts or other items, but at times will
not give anything. Note: If you roll into the tree near a bunch of stones in
a circle at Hyrule Castle, a golden Skulltula will appear. This trick also
works at the tree closest to the entrance at Kakario village and Zora's
Green potion Found at Kakoiro town and the Market. It fills the magic meter.
Red potion Found at Kakoiro town and the Market. It fills up your all of your
Blue potion Found at Kakoiro Town only. Go behind the potion shop and climb the
steps. Enter the door and you will be in the Blue Potion Shop. Talk to the
lady and you will get the Blue potion. You must get the Biggoron's sword
(broken) to do this. The Blue potion fills both your magic and heath.
the key at the Treasure Box Shop: Go to the Treasure Box Shop in the Market at night as a child.
Talk to the man to get the first key, then use the Lens of Truth to learn
which box contains the key.
At night as a child, go in the
back alley to the key shop. Play the game and if you choose the right chest
the first time, choose the following chests in a zig-zag pattern to will win
key in the Gerudo Training Grounds: Go into the lava room in which you must collect silver rupees in
the Gerudo Training Grounds. Stand on the first platform and use the Song Of
Time. You can jump to the two time blocks and grab the key above. If you
keep going ahead, you will find the key room where you open the locked
doors. You will find three treasure chests there. Do not open the door to
the left. Only go to the right when you enter the key room in the entrance
of the training ground. Note: Once you go back into the lava room, you will
have to retrieve all the rupees you collected earlier. This is also another
way to go through the room with only a hookshot.
records: Look to the left of Links bed and press A. You can read
all of Link's records that he accomplishes through the game.
After getting the Goron's
Bracelet and the Bomb Bag, search Hyrule Field for suspicious looking
boulders for a fairy fountain.
In the same tomb where a
Hylian Shield is found, destroy the wall to find a fairy fountain.
On the way to Zora's Domain,
move along the green shores of Zora'a River. Bomb a boulder at this
location to discover a fairy fountain beneath it.
When leaving the Sacred
Forest meadow, a ladder will appear on a hedge. This leads to a clearing
that contains a boulder. A fairy fountain is under the boulder.
In the watery paradise of
Zora's Domain, play the Song of Storms to open a hole in a platform. The
hole leads to a fountain below.
In the dry desert after
playing the Song of Storms, a hole will open up in the ground that will
lead to a fairy fountain.
Red Fairy locations: Note: This does not include Gossip Stones. Navi will always turn
green at the correct location to stand at. You must touch them all for this
to work. Note: Any Gossip Stone will pass one out if you play the Song Of
Storms in front of them, but these other locations were not easy to find.

Fairies: When you are a child, take out a Deku Stick and hold it near a
butterfly. If it lands on the stick, it will turn into a Fairy.
You can summon a Great Fairy by
playing Zelda's Lullaby.
money with Arrows Of Light: After getting the Arrows Of Light from Zelda, you will not have
any problems with money, even if you do not have all golden Skulltulas. Just
go to Lake Hylia or another location with enemies and kill them with the
Arrows Of Light. You will always get a purple rupee (worth 50 rupees). This
does not work with spiders on the walls or enemies who always give the same
thing, such as the Poes.
Note: This trick also works
a Deku Seed bags: Go to the Lost Woods. After entering, turn right and continue
forward to a ledge with a fence and ladder to the left. A metal circular
object will be suspended from a tree at this location. Shoot it three times
exactly in the center with the slingshot and to receive the bag. A
"100" will flash when your shot hits the center. You must score
"100" three times in a row. The bag will hold 40 seeds.
As a child, after you get the
Deku Seed bag that holds 40 seeds, go either to the Shooting Gallery in
Hyrule Castle Town or the Lost Woods (the place that the two Skull Kids are
at with the silver bulleye). If you go to the Shooting Gallery, hit all 10
Rupees to get the bigger bag. If you go to the Lost Woods, you will have to
hit the center of the target three times or the outside of the target thirty
times. After that, a Deku Scrub will spit out the 50-seed bag. Going to the
Lost Woods is recommended because you will save 20 Rupees if you do so.
Note: If you run out of seeds at the Lost Woods, you will have to get more.
If you run out, the Deku Scrub will restart the counting cycle. When you hit
the center of the target the number "100" will appear. When you
hit the outside of the target, the number "30" will appear.
Deku Sticks: To get 20 Deku Sticks, go to the Lost Woods, where you see a Deku
shrub seller. Talk to him and get 20 Deku Sticks. To get 30 Deku Sticks,
make sure you have the Skull mask and go to the part in the Lost Woods where
you see two Deku shrub sellers. Go straight forward and fall in a grotto
hidden in the tall grass. If you do not fall in it right away, keep moving
around in there until you do. You will see an open place with a plant thing
to the right. Put on your Skull mask and walk forward in front of where you
see nothing. A large number of Deku Scrubs will appear, and look and seem as
if they are communicating with one another. They will then jump around and
the King Deku scrub will appear and give you the ability to hold up to 30
Deku Sticks. Note: Other masks will have different effects on the scrubs.
Bomb Bag: Play at the Bomachu Bowling Ally in the market. Keep playing
until she says that you can win a Bomb Bag. Win and get a Bomb Bag that
holds thirty bombs. Next, as a child go to the third floor in the Goron
City. You will see a giant rolling Goron. Blow him up. He will get mad at
you. Keep blowing him up, and after the sixth to eighth time he will give up
and give you a Bomb Bag that holds forty bombs as a reward.
heart piece above Dodongo's cavern as a child: Go up to where the bomb flower used for opening the cavern is
located. Throw the bomb flower somewhere so you can use Z-targeting. Then,
hold back on the Analog-stick and do a back flip. If done properly,
you should land on the mesa-type platform. Although you will lose hearts
from the fall, you will regain them when the heart piece is in Link's hands.
piece in Kakariko Village: When you get a Longshot, you can get on the roof of Granny's
potion shop. An easier way is to go to the windmill with the fence in front
of it. Get on the section right in front of the door. Now the roof is
accessible by a Hookshot.
There is an easy way to get
this Heart piece as a child. Climb on the lookout tower and go as far
forward as you can. Use Z Targeting (you will not actually target anything)
and run to the left side of the tower, while still facing forward. Keep
running and the Action Button should turn to "Jump". Press A
and to hang off of the big fence near the house. Climb on to it, then jump
up to the roof of the house. Talk to the man, and he will give you the Piece
Giant's Knife: Go to Goron City as young Link. On one of the floors is a wall
that appears questionable. Blow it up, then keep destroying the other walls
behind it. Talk to the big may to learn that he is working on a weapon.
Return as older Link to receive the Giant's Knife. Note: It will break with
about five swings.
before The Giant's Knife
breaks, it is the best sword in the game. It is even better than the Big
Goron sword because it is slightly more damaging. Even after it breaks, it
is still useable. The only problem is that it is now as short as the Kokiri
sword. It does suffer from less damage after it breaks. You can buy another
one after it breaks, but this is not recommended. Only use it before it
breaks on a Boss or similar enemy to get its full potential.
Gold Skulltulas: Capture a bug in a bottle and drop them on some soft soil, where
Link would put some Magic Beans. A Gold Skulltula will appear. Kill it and
get your new found token. This works on all of them except the soft soil
spot right next to the man that sells the Magic Beans.
Skulltulas: Go outside Hyrule Castle as young Link to where Talon is met.
There will be a tree at that location. Play the Song of Storms and a grotto
will appear. Enter the grotto, destroy the walls with a bomb, and kill the
Skullata. Use the boomerang to get the token while doing a back flip to
escape. Keep repeating this to get unlimited Skulltulas. Note: If done
incorrectly. reset game and try again.
The Boomerang is required for
the following trick. Go to the hole in the ground by Lon Lon Ranch where a
Skulltula can be found. Go down and kill the Skulltula, but do not collect
the coin right away. Use the boomerang to get the Skulltula, and before you
get the boomerang back to you, backflip into the warp portal. If done
correctly, the screen will blank will display "You got" without
finishing the sentence. Repeat this to collect over 100 coins.
As a child after getting the
Song Of Storms, go to the place where Zelda is located, but do not enter the
castle. There is a tree there. Go to it and play the Song Of Storms. A hole
will appear. Jump in it and use three bombs on the three walls and a
Skulltala will appear. Hit it with your boomerang and throw it at the
spirit. Go out, fall, and repeat.
Go to Gerudo Valley. Go to the
overhang of Hyrule Field before you enter Gerudo Valley. There should be a
circle of rocks with a yellow rock in the middle. Bomb this and go down.
Walk straight forward and use Din's Fire. Two webs will burn. Go through the
one on the Right. kill the Skulltula and Z-target the token. Go back as far
as possible without losing your lock on, then throw your boomerang. Go back
and get on the square thing. The dialogue box will appear with no text.
Then, go back onto Hyrule Field. Repeat this as many times as desired.
the Biggest Quiver: Enter the archery game as an adult after getting the Gerudo
Membership Card. It costs 20 rupees to play, but is worth it. Play the first
time and get 1,000 points and to receive a Heart Container. Play the game a
second time and get 1,500 points and to receive the Biggest Quiver, which
holds up to fifty arrows. When starting the archery game, aim for the
bulls-eye and fire to get 100 points each time. Also shoot at the target at
the end. When you come around the end target, aim for the clay jars. Shoot
them to collect 100 points per jar. Keep getting 100's on the targets and
successfully shoot all the clay jars to get the required 1,500 points for
the Biggest Quiver.
the Golden Gauntlets: Go to the shadow room in Ganon's Castle. When you enter the room,
you will see green rubble. Destroy it so it does not get in your way. then
longshot to the torch that you see. Next, longshot yourself to the Like Like
and destroy it. Get Fire Arrows and shoot the torch. When catches on fire,
use the Lens Of Truth and go for the switch on the right. Get on it and a
treasure box will appear. Longshot over and open it to get the Golden
fishing lure (sinking lure): Use the following steps to get a better fishing lure that can
catch more fish. As an adult, walk to the log that is sticking out in the
pond. Walk around on it awhile to find a sinking lure, that can catch fish
almost every time. Note: The lure may only be used once, and if used to
catch a record weight fish, the counterman will not give Link a prize. The
sign on the tank will also be marked with "With illegal fishing
To get the sinking lure at the
fishing pond, walk along the walls and you will eventually find it.
The sinking lure may be found
more than once. For example, in one game it can be found for the first time
in the little stream by the rocks by the wall in the fishing pond. Quit
fishing, then return a few minutes later. Walk on the log in the water, then
go over to the same location to find the sinking lure again.
Play the fishing game by using
the Scarecrow's Song or complete the Water Temple as an adult. Get up to it
in Lake Hylia. Go across the pond to where the lily pads are located. Walk
around for a short while and you should find the sinking lure. This is the
only way you can catch the 20 pound eel in the middle of the pond, because
it stays at the bottom. The reward for this fish is the Golden Scale, which
allows you to dive 12 feet underwater.
big fish: Cast at the logs or sticks in the water. You can catch a 22 lb.
fish at those locations.
the Loach: When fishing in the Hylian Pond, you may see a strange looking
fish that resembles like a eel with fins. That is the Hylian Loach. You can
Z-target all other fish, but the only time you can get a lock on the Loach
is when it comes up for air. When it does you will hear a popping sound.
However, after it reaches the bottom, you will lose your targetting. First
find the sinking lure. Then find out where the Loach is located. Press C-Up,
center the screen on it, then cast. Your lure has to go over him if you want
to catch it. Use the Analog-stick and slowly move it in various
directions. Your lure should come on top of the Loach. It weighs around 15
pounds so it should not give you much trouble when reeling it in. Do not
cast too far over it -- while you are trying to pull your lure toward the
Loach another fish will go for the lure and pull it off track. If you ask
the man to weigh it he will give you 50 rupees and put the Loach back
because there are very few of them left.
The Zora Tunic and Iron Boots
are required for this trick. Go to the bottom of the lake so you can see the
Loach. Stay a short distance away from, it and you can see the fish swimming
in a circle. Get the sinking lure and throw it in the middle of the fish to
catch a 22 lb. fish and get 100 rupees from the man.
Go to the Fishing Pond
immediately before the rooster crows or wolf howls. When you go in, the
water should be all cloudy and misty. That is when you know the Hyrule Loach
is there. Rent a rod and find the sinking lure (which should be on the log
or near the rock around the little stream). Once you find the sinking lure,
walk in the water and look around for a long eel-like fish (the Loach). Walk
out the water and cast the lure, making sure that it is about a foot or so
in front of the Loach's face, and wait. He should go up for air. After he
goes up for air for the fourth of fifth time, he should see the lure and go
after it. Press B a couple times and he should bite the lure. Just
reel him in. He weighs up from 30-35 pounds. When you catch the Hyrule
Loach, the man will only give you 50 rupees since the Loach is a rare
species. This will only work when the water is cloudy -- that is the only
time the Loach appears (80%). The Loach will only go for the lure on the
fifth or sixth time he goes up for air (or even longer) -- press B
button every time he goes up for air, and your chances of catching him are
Walk into the fishing pond
immediately when the rooster crows in the morning. The pond will be misty
and the Loach will be out playing with its baby.
Do not get the Sinking Lure,
instead use your original Rod. As an adult, the Loach is there only once in
a while but always at the same location. When you enter the Fishing Pond, it
is at the left leaves. It only changes position when you scare it by walking
nearby. Then, it will be in the center of the pond and will be unable to be
caught. You must catch him while he is in the leaves. The best location to
stand at is the small stream between the rocks in the water. To do this
without scaring the Loach, when you enter the pond, go to the right until
you get there. Use the Iron Boots to see if it is there before trying. Also,
there are two other fishes that make it more difficult to catch the Loach.
If you throw your rod and the other fish grab it, you hear the
"enemy" sound and the Loach will be gone. If the other fish catch
your lure, do not do anything. Just wait until it is off. The fish that it
was on will swim to the middle of the pond and you will not have trouble
with it any more. Repeat this if needed until the Loach remains in the
leaves. Throw the rod again in the leaves and reel it in with the Analog-stick
as quickly as possible. If you do not reel fast enough, it will not grab it.
Repeat this till you get him, then reel him in. Note: When you are child,
there are two Loaches, one in the left leaves, and one in the right. Use the
same strategy to catch them.
Scale: Go to the fishing pond at Lake Hylia at night. Fish until you
catch a 20 lb. fish. Go to the shop owner and select "Weigh my
fish". He will tell you that you have broken the record and give you
the Golden Scale. This allows you able to dive deeper than with the Sliver
lure: Go to the fishing pond as an adult. The owner will now be wearing
a hat. Cast at him and to steal his hat. Do not give it back and you can use
it as a lure. He will charge you for it when it is used.
Go to the fishing game at Lake
Hylia, and cast the rod at the man at the counter. If you catch his hat, get
the sinking lure (as explained in the "Illegal fishing lure (sinking
lure)" hint. The hat will disappear and the man will never have it
again. Note: This will not work if the sinking lure has already been
Lon Lon Milk: Approach any cow with an empty bottle and play Epona's Song. The
song will remind the cow of the pasture, and will give Link free milk.
flats and sharps: Hold R and press one of the Ocarina playing buttons to
make a sharp note, or Z to make a flat.
Boots in Shadow Temple: When in the Shadow Temple, use the Iron Boots when near the fans.
The fans will blow Link back without the extra weight of the boots.
Of Truth: As Young Link, go to the Happy Masks shop near the Temple Of Time
after it opens when you have talked to the guard who lets you up Death
Mountain and asks you to get a mask. The mask he wants is called the Keaton
Mask and is worth ten rupees. Get it and take it to the guard. After that,
go back to the shop and pay the money for the mask and get the Skull Mask.
Take this to the lone Skull Kid in the Forbidden Woods, left from the start
of the woods. He will buy it. Go back to the shop and get the Scary Mask.
Take this to the kid who is at the graveyard during the day. He will buy it.
Go back to the shop and get the Bunny Hood mask. This is the hardest mask to
sell, as you have to look around the Hyrule Fields for the marathon runner,
then wait until night when he stops running to talk to him. Note: You must
put on the mask; you have to talk to the man with it on. When you have done
all of this you will get the Mask of Truth from the Happy Mask shop. You
will now have the ability to talk to Gossip Stones.
the three tunics: There are three tunics that can be found in the game.
Kokiri Tunic As a child and adult, you will start with this tunic.
Zora Tunic You can buy it as an adult. For 300 rupees. Or, after getting blue
fire (buy it or find it in the ice cavern), burn the diamond that
surrounds King Zora. He will give you the tunic.
Goron Tunic You can buy it as an adult. For 200 rupees. Or, as an adult, bomb the
little rolling Goron. He will talk to you for a while. He will give it to
you after you ask the two questions .
the Goron Bracelet: Enter Goron City. Go to the bottom floor with the statue and
stand on the carpet. Play Zelda's Lullaby to open the door. Once inside,
stand in front of big brother (the Big Goron), and play Saria's Song. He
will then dance. After he stops dancing, he will compliment the tune that
you played and present you with the Goron Bracelet.
Shield: Enter the Dodongo's Cavern. Go to the left, get the Bomb Flower,
and explode the breakable walls. Behind one of the walls is a Business
Scrub. For 50 rupees, he will give you a Deku Shield.
Tunic: You can get the Water Tunic by unfreezing King Zora. You have to
be at least at the Ice Cavern as an adult. The Ice Cavern is near where
Jabu-Jabu was located.
Sword: The Big Sword will break after a few tries, but if you perform a
series of tasks later in the game you will get another one that never
Biggoron's Sword: Use the following long trading sequence as an adult to get
Biggoron's Sword. Go to the lady that gave young Link the empty bottle, when
her Cuccos were rescued. She will give Link a Pocket Cucco egg. Wait for the
egg to hatch, then bring it to Talon in Kakariko Village. Bring the Cucco
back to the lady, to receive Cojiro, the Blue Cucco. Go to the Lost Woods,
then turn left at the entrance. Give Cojiro to the man to receive an Odd
Mushroom, which will spoil if too much time is wasted. Rush to the Potion
shop in Kakariko Village, then go left into the room. Run into the shop to
the right, then give the Mushroom to the lady at that location. She will
give Link an Odd Potion. Hurry back to the Lost Woods. The man will be gone,
but a Kokiri will be here. Give the Potion to her to receive the Poacher's
Saw. Ride the horse to Gerudo Valley. There is a broken bridge here, so whip
Epona to jump it. Give the saw to the carpenter that is outside to receive
Biggoron's Broken Sword. Go to the top of Death Mountain, then walk to the
right. Biggoron will appear, rubbing his eyes. He has an eye infection and
will give link a Prescription. Bring the Prescription to King Zora after he
has been unfrozen to receive the Eyeball frog, an ingredient for the
Eyedrops. Hurry to the Lakeside Laboratory at Lake Hylia and give the
Eyeball Frog to the Old Man. He will give Link the Eyedrops. Hurry back up
to the Death Mountain Summit and ive the Eyedrops to Biggoron. After using
them, he will give Link a Claim Check. Wait three days (play the Sun's Song
six times to quickly pass the time), give him back the Claim Check to
receive Biggoron's Sword. This weapon is twice as powerful as the Master
Sword, and will not break like the Giant's Knife. Note: If Link is late
during any of the time-sensitive parts of the trade, the game will restart
back at the person you need to give the item to, and allow another try.
Ocarina songs may not be used to teleport to a location during the trade.
When you are getting Biggoron's
sword and you are timed (as when giving the eyedrops to Biggoron), instead
of running all the way up Death Mountain, you can save and reset the game.
You will have the eyedrops but you will not be timed.
When completing the
"Trader Link" quest to get the Biggoron's Sword, after you get the
eyedrops from the lakeside professor. ride Epona to Kakariko village. Cut
through Goron City and mountain (you must have the Megaton Hammer) while
wearing the Kokiri/Zora Tunic. When you get inside the crater, the countdown
for the eyedrops stops, and you are given a countdown for how much longer
you can stay. Leave through the top of the crater and give the eyedrops to
Biggoron. It is possible to complete the run in about 1:53.
Bottles: To get extra bottles, you have to sacrifice items permanently.
Remember, you can never get these items back unless you start a new game. Go
to where you can catch a Fairy. Equip your bottle on one of the C-buttons.
While in the middle of catching the fairy, press Start and equip the
item that you want to change into a bottle on the same C-button as
your bottle. When you catch the fairy, your item will be turned into a
bottle permanently. Be aware that you can never get that item back unless
you start a new game. You can do this more than once with different items.
Press Start, then put
one of your bottles in any C-button slot. Press Start again,
then press that button and Start simultaneously. Put any item in the
place of the bottle and resume the game. Press Start again. Look
where the item was, and there will be a bottle.
Fifth Bottle: Get Biggoron's sword with the claim check. Go to a Fairy fountain
as an adult with an empty bottle. Swing the bottle, and pause the game half
way through the swing. Place the claim check in the same spot as the bottle.
The claim check with become, a fifth bottle. It may take a few tries, but
when you get out the claim check, pressing the C-button that
it is on may help.
Sixth Bottle: There is a sixth bottle that can be obtained. Do the same thing
as when getting the Biggoron sword, but as a child. You have to use the Mask
Nut upgrade: When Link is running through the Lost Woods, he will find two
boulders. One boulder will be near the beginning of the maze and the other
will be near the end. Go after the boulder near the end, and bomb or hammer
it. Fall into the hole that appears to find two Deku Business Scrubs. Defeat
the first Scrub and he will allow Link to carry up to 30 Deku nuts.
The two Deku Nut upgrades can
be found in the Lost Woods, in a secret grotto from a Business Scrub and in
the Forest Stage, with the Mask of Truth. If you have already gotten the
first one, you may not be able get the second one. Some other action, such
as completing the game, getting through a certain temple, or something else
may prevent this from happening. The following can be done to get both
upgrades: start a new game, become an adult, complete the Forest Temple, go
back to childhood, and get the second upgrade. Then the first upgrade can
also be obtained.
prizes: Visit the Skulltula house in the Kakario village after collecting
every ten Gold Skulltulas to collect some valuable prizes.
Number of Skulltula Tokens
Prize for that amount
Adult's Wallet (holds 200 rupees)
Stone of Agony (find hidden holes)
Giant's Wallet (holds 500 rupees)
Piece of Heart
Gold Skulltulas: Hunt only at night because that is the time that the Gold
Skulltulas appear. Some appear while Link is a child and some appear while
he is an adult. A few appear during both these times. The Skulltulas like
dirt patches, where the magic beans may be planted. Use a bottle of bugs to
surface the spiders. Nine of the ten spots contain a Skulltula. Some like to
hide in trees, so check them with a roll attack. It is wise to check most
trees because most all of them have a good prize such as bombs or rupees if
not a gold Skulltula. The Skulltulas can be in slingshot range many times,
but require a boomerang to retrieve the token. They also love to hide in
crates, so use the roll attack to break them.
Fire and Ice arrows: After completing the Water Temple, go to Lake Hylia. Play the Sun
Song at plaque near the warp point (serenade of water) to make the sun rise.
As soon as this happens, shoot the sun with an arrow and fire arrows will
appear. To get ice arrows, complete the Gerudo training center.
earring: An earring can be seen in Link's left ear at the end of the game
during the close-up, when Zelda and Link are talking in the sky.
label pin: Go to Lon Lon Ranch as a child. Go to the room were you play the
Cucco game. Do not play the game. Instead, look at his shirt to see a pin
