Be sure to keep an eye on your fairy companion at all times. When Navi turns green and flies over to a spot, it's usually an indication that there is something hidden there. If you don't feel a rumble from the Stone of Agony, then it's most likely a red fairy (refreshes health and magic). Play the Song of Storms or Zelda's Lullaby, to lure it out. In some occasions, Navi also points out potential "scarecrow" spots and hidden caves.
Go to the temple of time as a kid and press left, up, right, left, up, right on the orica, then look in the item bag and use a bomb. You will now have unlimited arrows.
Press in the game: A, A, Up, C, Z, R, L.
When you are able to use bombs find a gossip stone. Place a bomb at the base of the stone. When the smoke clears the stone should flash blue twice, red once and then blast off.
Also when you get the megaton hammer from the fire temple find a stone and give it a good wallop and the stone will flatten like a pancake.
Don't worry if you send the stone into space it will come back when you exit the room. When you flatten the stone it should bounce back to its normal shape in a couple of seconds.
If you have an empty bottle, stand in front of any cow and play "Epona's Song". The cow will feel energetic and fill your bottle up with Lon Lon Milk for free!
For The Three Spiritual Stone
Queen Gohma: the Spider with Ceasure Problems
Use your fairy slingshot and always Z-target her. When she gets close to you, her eye will turn red (who knew)shoot it and hack away with your sword. If you hack quickly enough, you might be able to kil the queen in one try. After about four hits (unless you hack quickly) SHe will get up. Still Z-Target her. When she's on the ceiling (like that took a milion years) shoot her eye when it's red. Hack away (remember to be fast) and with luck, she'll be dead. If not, repeat the process 'till death.
King Dodongo: who thinks he's a goron
Use the above description to guess how to beat this piece of cake. That's right. Throw a bomb in his mouth. So, at the begining of the fight, run away so he doesn't breath fire at you then pick up a bomb and run strait at him. He'll blow up. Hack once
then flatten yourself against the wall 'till he rolls past you. Rinse and repeat. After about four hits, he's dead.
Barinade: Who thinks he's protected by jellyfish
Z-target him immedietly and sidestep. Keep sidestepping. DOn't stop unless you want to be a bolt of lightning. Throw your boomerang. Repeat 3x.
Then z-target his body. He'll become paralyzed. Kill his protective (really?) jellyfish. Repeat till his jellyfish are gone. Then repeat the same process except when he's paralyzed, hack away. Repeat till dead.
Now that you have the three spiritual stones, go to the temple of time.
This is how you get easy gold skultilas. First you go to the castle, next to the moat, where the tree is. Play the song of storms to open a secret hole. When you enter you will see a gold skultila. You must shoot the skutila, collect the token, and leave before the message dissapears. I suggest you use the boomerang for a faster effect. If done correctly you should be able to enter and collect as many gold skultilas as you want.
As you walk in to Hyrule Castle, go to the Courtyard and look in the window on the right. You should see pictures of Princess Peach and Mario. Shoot the pictures with your slingshot and 20 rupees should fall out.
As adult Link, you can hook the fisherman's hat. Just aim at him, then cast. It may take a few tries to find the right place. You'll see that he has gone bald!
Now for something totally new. When you have the hat, cast it into the pond. If you cast enough, the hat will come off the hook and sink. The fisherman will charge you 50 rupees for a replacement. But he never gets one. The fisherman will remain without a hat for the rest of the game.
Play through the game until you get to Gannon. Then after he knocks the Master Sword out of Link's hands, save & quit. When you start at Gannon's Castle, Leave and go get on Epona in Hyrule Field. Even though the icons are not there, you can use any item you have equipped.(If you use the longshot and it latches on to something, you can fly through anything and everything. Whenever, and wherever you want!)
*Note: This only works on the GOLD cartridge version of the game (v1.0), other versions (1.1 and 1.2) do not allow this trick.
To Get Through The Lost Woods Quickly, Follow These Directions: Go Right, Left, Right, Left, Straight, Left, Right.
To Get To Goron City Quickly From Kokri Forest, Take The First Right, Then a Left, And Go Straight.
*Note: You Must Have Already Been To Goron City And Blown Up the Boulders Covering the Path.
Kill the following numbers of Skulltula Spiders and receive the items below:
Adult Wallet (holds 200 rupees)
Stone of Agony (hidden rumblings)
Giant Wallet (holds 500 rupees)
Bombchu (climbs up walls)
Piece of Heart
Gold Rupee (see "Unlimited Money")
Please note that you must have the Rumble Pak for this secret to happen. Once you aquire the Stone of Agony, equip it, and every time Link approaches an important item in the game, the Stone of Agony will beat real hard the closer you get to the important item. It is basically a little note that your approaching something good.
In Zelda's Courtyard
Go to the courtyard where you first meet Zelda . Look in the windows, and in one of them you will see some pictures of some familiar video game characters!
When you go to Lake Hyrule as young Link, show your Ocarina to the scarecrow. He will ask you to play a song, so create one of exactly 8 notes and remember it. Show and play the song back to the other scarecrow. Come back to the lake as adult Link and play the song to the first scarecrow and you will learn the scarecrow song.
In Lake Hylia go to where the owl is sitting between the two bridges. Talk to him. After you talk to him run away so he doesn't take you to the castle. Go back to where he was. Then go behind the piece of stone and pull it. Go in the hole and there will be about 20 red fairies!
Got a few empty bottles to fill with bugs? Here's an easy way to get multiple bugs without having to go look for them. You need one bug to start off with, commonly found under rocks or by bumping into trees. Catch the bug in a bottle. Now empty the bottle out again. Voila, three bugs will come out -- now you can fill three of your bottles.
You know that in the castle courtyard there are the pictures, right? Well, there's also a soldier that's there. Go to the window opposite of the window with pictures. Use your slingshot and shoot in the window. A soldier will peek out, say something, and throw a bomb at you. It's not a useful trick, but it's pretty funny to see.
At the VERY end of the game, after the entire ending, when it says "The End" and freezes the frame, if you leave it on for awhile, it'll start playing the song you made up for the scarecrow. Wait another minute or so and it'll play it again in a different octave or different instrument. It does this about 4-6 times and then stops. No biggie, just another little "easter egg" Miyamoto dropped in there.
Here is what you need to get and do to receive the Biggoron Sword. This is a great sword since it cuts swings to death practically in half. Some have time limits and don't warp or else it will reduce time and you need Epona for this. Use the same carrot method when you beat Ingo for this.
How to read: When you read one line, that tells you where you give a certain item to a person (e.x.,Corjiro you get from Kakariko Village from the Cucco Girl). The next line shows you where you give the item you obtained from the previous line to and where the person is.
Pocket Egg-Cucco Girl (Kakariko Village) (Note: Make him happy by waking up Talon and then go back to Cucco Girl)
Corjiro-Brother of Cucco Girl (Lost Woods)
Odd Mushroom-Mother behind potion shop (Kakariko Village)
Odd Potion-Kokiri Girl (Lost Woods)
Poacher's Saw-Carpender (Gerudo Valley)
Goron's Sword-Biggoron (Death Mountain)
Prescription-King Zora (Zora's Domain)
Eyeball Frog-Professor (Lake Hylia)
Eye Drops-Biggoron (Death Mountain)
You will receive a claim check after step 9. Play the Sun's Song 6 times or wait three days to get the Biggoron Sword. Believe me, it's worth all that work!
You must NOT have the Hylian Shield already for this trick to work. Go to Kakiriko Graveyard at nightime as a kid and pull back the grave with flowers in the first row of graves. Jump in the pit and open the chest inside.
*Note: If you already have the Hylian Shield, the chest will contain a blue rupee.
If you return to Lon Lon Ranch after you get Epeona, Malon will challenge you to a race. If you beat 50 sec. shell say what she wants to give you somthing but it is too heavy to carry. If you return to your house there is a cow in it!
To get extra bottles go to a place where there are fish swimming in a shallow pool, like the hole behind the potion shop in Kokariko Villiage, or Zora's fountain. Equip a bottle, and swap at a fish. When he is in mid swap pause it and equip something useless in the bottle's place and it will turn into a bottle. DON'T use something important, because you might not be able to get it back.
*Note: The bottles will appear in your equipment screen, but you may not be able to use them.
If you use the Megaton Hammer against mirror link he won't be able to mirror your attacks.
If you slash a sign to smithereens, you can put it back together by playing Zelda's lullaby on your ocarina. The sign will magically recreate itself in front of your eyes.
You can get even more detailed in the music you play with the ocarina with these extra tips. To play flat notes, hold Z while playing a note. To play sharp notes, hold R while playing a note. To vary the pitch on a note, use the Control Stick. Try it out and compose your own masterpieces!
Any fan of the old Zelda games will have figured this one out already:
Attack a chicken repeatedly with your sword and it will call for backup. Soon, tons of chickens will flap around on screen, trying to give Link that same fuzzy "Birds" feeling as in Hitchcock's famous movie.
Simply leave the room or area to stop the chicken attack.
When Queen Gohama climbs up on the wall and on to the roof and tries to lay eggs you can hit her in the eye with the sling shot and she will fall and be paralyzed and ready to hit.
First you need to get bombs, the song of storms,and bomerang. First go to hyrule castle if you jump in the moat so the guards won't see you. Drift until you see a shallow corner, climb up and you will see a tree. Play the song of storms. A hole will open up, jump down. There will be several walls that can be blown down with a bomb. On of these has a gold skulltilla behind it. Be carefull, first kill the bug then stand right in front of the cirle that sends you back to the surface. Next, throw the bomerang at the token as soon as it hit's the token step back on the circle. You will be back at the surface. If you did this right the gold skulltilla should still be there. Repeat this process until you have 100 or more.
Are you getting annoyed at the skeletons that pop out of the ground at night when you're walking around in the Hyrule Fields? Ever tried camouflaging yourself as local wildlife? For example, try puttin on the rabbit mask you get at the mask shop and you will be able to run around freely without the annoying undead attackers.
*Note: You need to be young Link to wear masks.
This should make it a lot easier to catch the Super Cuccoos. As young Link, go to Lon Lon Ranch and enter the first door on the left. The sleeping guy (Talon?) will be there in a room full of chickens. Grab and toss all the chickens into the corner of the room where the bottom of the staircase is. The chickens will get stuck there and won't roam as much. Now go and play the Super Cucco game. He'll toss his three "super chickens" into the room. An easy win, now that all the other chickens are stuck in the corner. The prize: A full bottle of Lon Lon milk.
Don't wait untill you have 100 Gold Skulltulas to get the golden Ruppee, get it as soon as you get bombs. As either Link, go to Kakariko Village. Right when you walk in there is that tree in the middle. Well take about 10 paces directly behind that tree, you should be in the center of a somewhat open area in the town. (If you have the Stone of Agony, you will feel it rumble.)
Place a bomb there and back away, when it explodes there will be a hole in the ground and kill the two mummies with the Song of the Sun and your sword. A treasure chest will appear with a golden ruppee inside.
Another gold rupee is hidden in the boulder chamber in Goron City. Stay on the left side of the chamber that destroys the rocks. When you get to the end of the line of rocks there should be a gold rupee. In the same chamber there should also be a purple rupee.
For a third, get to the bottom of the well and defeat Dead Hand. Now grab the Lens of Truth and equip it and look for a small chest behind the one you just opened. Open it to reveal a golden rupee.
Instead of buying a fish for Lord Jabbu Jabbu (Which is nearly imposible), Just catch one with a bottle right next to the shop. I know this trick is obvious, but some people just don't think!
Before planting a Magic Bean in a mound of soft dirt, empty a jar of bugs (you can buy them for 50 rupees at Hyrule Market or just find them under rocks) on top of the mound. Catch one of the bugs mmediately afterwards so you don't have to find or buy more of them. After one of the bugs goes into the mound of dirt, a Gold Skulltula will jump out, except for the mound right next to the bean selling guy.
Low on energy? Find a Gossip Stone (the cycloptic rocks that giggle when you hit them) and play one of the following three songs next to it:
Zelda's Lullaby, Epona's Song, or Song of Storms.
Either touch the red fairy that flies out to fill up your energy or catch it in a bottle so that it can revive you if you die.
Magic Spin Slash: On Top of Death Mountain, there is sign, to the left looks like a door, BOMB it to find a door.
Din's Fire: In Hyrule castle, once you enter climb up the vines, jump of the gate and run foward, there should be a sign, go past it and use a BOMB to blow up the rock.
Farore's Wind: At Zoras Fountain, go to the right once you enter, there is a island with trees and rocks, go there, use a BOMB on the rock on the wall, then run into the cave.
Double magic meter: Play the Bolero of Fire on the Ocarina, then go across the bridge that leads to the Leader Goron, instead of going into his chamber, go left, equip your MEGATON HAMMER and break the rock.
Double Energy (Adult): Once you leave the market going towards Ganons Castle, go right, run until you see a bunch of rocks, go past them and you will see a big column, use your GOLD GAUNTLETS to lift it.
Go to the fishing hut when Link is an adult. If you can catch a 15 pound fish you'll receive golden scales. These let you dive to 8 meters.
To get the golden gauntlets you must go to Ganon's Tower and go into the shadow room. Once there get to the platform past the guy that steels your stuff when he sucks you in. Once on the platform you must shoot the un-lit torch or lite it somehow and there should be a pathway that leads down to a switch, press it, a chest sould fall from the cieling, go back up, dont worry if you fall you can come back and the chest should still be there.
To get an unbreakable Deku Stick you must do the following:
Get a lot of Deku Sticks.
Equip a Deku Stick.
Do the Jumping Slash Attack on an object and either hit the tip or middle of the stick.
The stick will break in half and you will keep one half which is invincible and is twice is strong than Link's normal sword.
Play through your game as normal until Ganon, the final boss. After you have knocked Ganon down the first time, retreive the master sword. Get the master sword from Zelda but instead of going back to face Ganon, go the opposite way and move away from Ganon. There should be a piece of land that is near Zelda which juts away from the floating arena. Move back in it until you hit an invisible wall. Turn around in place until you are facing Ganon and equip your bow and arrow. Aim carefully and fire an arrow at Ganon's tail. If the trick worked Ganon should get up and Link should be engulfed in flames.
As a kid go to the tree close to where you found Talon the first time, by the castle. Go to the tree nearby and play the song of storms close to the tree. Bomb the walls until you find the gold skulttatta. kill it and move close to the portal. Grab the coin with the bommarang and step up right before it comes to you. The word "you" or "you des" will be displayed. Do this as many times as you like.
At Lon Lon Ranch, play Talon's Super Cucco Game. When you win, you will receive a bottle(1) with Lon Lon milk
In Kakariko village, find all the cuccos and return them to the pen, then talk to the lady standing next to the pen, she will give you a bottle.
At Lake Hylia (you must have the silver scale), dive into the water to find a bottle and a letter.
As adult Link, go to the market and talk to the ghost person in the house directly to the left asyou enter. Go outside and collect poes, once you collect 1000 points, the ghost will give you a bottle.
For some reason everyone is dissapointed because all you get for finding 100 skulltulla tokens is 200 rupees. Well, actually, it's infinite. Once you get the first huge rupee, you can come back whenever you want and get another one. I don't know why no one else has noticed this yet...
As your name, type in: morup. Get a gold rupee and the code will take effect.
Ever wonder what secret the harmless little butterflies are hiding that flutter about Hyrule? As young Link, take out a stick and find some butterflies. Slowly follow them until one touches the stick -- which, tadaaaa: turns it into a red fairy. Use a bottle to catch it or touch it to be healed instantly.
To beat the mini boss in the Shadow Temple ( the one where hands grap you and hold you in place until it bites you ), all you have to do is use your lense of truth. When using it, look for a shadow on the ground. When you see it, put a bomb on it. The boss will then come up out of the ground and you won't be hurt.
Fire Arrow - In Lake Hylia, walk across the bridges to get to the tree. Play the Ocarina to make it night time. Equip your bow. Play the flute again, then shoot the sun.
Ice Arrow - In the Gerudo training course, you must collect keys. When you have at least 5, walk into the door in front of the entrance, and use all the keys to make a path. In the big chest you will find the Ice Arrow.
Light Arrow - When you get all of the medallions, go to the Temple of Time. You will find Zelda and she will give it to you.
Getting Epona can be very tricky at times. This guide will help you beat Mr Igno.
Learn Epona's Song. As Young Link talk to Malon in the horse corral in Lon Lon Ranch after meeting Princess Zelda. Talk to her again and show her your ocarina and she'll teach you Epona's Song.
Become Adult Link and get at least 70 rupees.
Talk to Mr. Ingo outside the corral at Lon Lon Ranch and pay 10 rupees to ride the horse. Instead of getting on the horse provided, play Epona's Song and Epona will run up to you. Ride her around the corral to practice. Wait until the time is up.
Talk to Mr. Ingo again and pay to ride again. Play Epona's Song and get on Epona. This time, walk up to Mr. Ingo while on Epona and use Z Targeting to talk to him. He'll challenge you to a race with a 50 rupee wager.
Win the race against Mr. Ingo. He'll challenge you to a second race. Win again and you'll get Epona.
Use the A button to get Epona running really fast and jump over any fence to escape the ranch.
Race Tips: Racing Mr. Ingo can be tough. Here's how to win. Hold forward on the control stick as soon as the race begins. Use 1 carrot (push A to use a carrot) and wait for it to come back before using it again to keep up with Mr. Ingo. Hug the fence and wait for him to move out of your way. Then use up all the carrots you have EXCEPT ONE to speed Epona up and pass him. Wait until a second carrot appears and use it, then keep doing this to keep ahead of Mr. Ingo. NEVER USE YOUR LAST CARROT! Just keep using the second-to-last carrot. If you use the last one you'll slow down big time and lose.
As a kid go to the bombchu game room in Hyrule Town Market. Play a second time, if you win, you will recieve a bomb bag that can hold 30 bombs.
If you're not very good at bombachu bowling, here's another way to get a bigger bomb bag. As young Link, go to Goron City. There is a large Goron rolling around. Stop him with a bomb, and he will give you a bigger bomb bag.
Here's the locations of the Magic Bean Squares.
Lake Hylia by the laboratory.
Desert Colossus by the temple.
Gerudo Valley by the bridge.
To the left of the entrance bridge to Kokiri Forest.
By the Kokiri shop.
Lost woods - trail to it: right, left, right, left, and left.
Zora's river by the bean selling man.
Kokariko graveyard at the top-back-left corner.
Death mountain trail at the foot of dodongo cavern.
Play the Bolero of Fire to warp into the death mountain crater and the square will be right near the point of arrival.
As a kid go to Lon Lon Ranch. Talk to Malon and she'll teach you a song. Play it to Epona and she'll grow fond of you. Then become an adult. Go to Lon Lon Ranch and pay Mr. Indigo to ride a horse. Then when you're in there, play Epona's song. Epona will run up to you and you ride her for a minute. Then pay him again, get on epona, ride to Mr. Indigo and speak to him. He'll ask if you want to race, say yes. Beat him twice. Then he'll lock you in the ranch. All you have to do is jump over the gate. To get the cow go back to the ranch and talk to Malon. She should ask if you want to do the obstacle course, say yes, and if you break the record you get a cow.
To get the Hover Boots go to the Shadow Temple as a adult and go through the invisible wall in the first room and there will be more invisible walls in the next room in one of them there will be a door leading to a deadhand. Beat it to get the Hover Boots. To get the Iron Boots beat the Ice Cavern.
When you get the Hover Boots, equip them. Remember that the Hover Boots have little traction, so you will slide when you run and stop. Begin running, quickly release the Analog-stick
, and hold R
. You will be in a backflip stance, but will go forwards instead of back.
In the room before the first Boss, hit the enemies in this order: 2, 3, 1. In Master Quest, use 3, 1, 2.
Shoot her in the eye when it is red. If you do not, her babies will attack you.
Go to the garden in the castle. Go to the right and look in the window.
In the castle garden, shoot the left window. A man will throw a bomb at you.
During the game play, switch to your sword, then repeatedly rotate the Analog-stick
while repeatedly pressing B
. Eventually, Link will do his attack.
In Kakariko Village, go inside where the windmill is located. Press A
to make Navi appear. Stand on the spinning thing, and play the Song Of Storms. Just stand there. Since the windmill is going faster, you will see Navi flying behind you, trying to catch up. She will continuously try to get back inside your shirt, but will never make it.
In the Dodongo Cavern, there is a room containing three Dodongos. Destroy two Dodongos. On the third Dodongo, kill it but do not let it explode. Before it explodes, begin climbing the ladder on the pillar in the center of the room. The Dodongo will explode and there will be an intermission sequence of the door opening. The screen will return to you climbing the ladder. If done correctly, you will not be able to move and cannot press Start
As an adult, go to Hyrule Market and kill a zombie to make the other zombies move towards you. hit one of the other zombies until there is only one hit remaining until it is killed. Then, try to get another zombie to get close to the one you are about to kill. They should be close enough where you can hit both zombies. When this happens, hit both zombies with one sword attack. As one zombie dies, the other one freezes. Note: This is easier to do with the Big Goron's Sword.
Go to the Forest Temple. Inside, go to the second twisty hallway (with the green flying skulls) and cast Faore's Wind. Return to the red/blue switch for the first twisty hallway (the one immediately after the blue flying skulls) and hit it. Return to your warp point and backtrack to the first twisty room. Go through the door, but do not walk after he goes through the door. Turn left and walk through the hole in the wall. You will end up below the level. Turn right and you will fall for a long time and be placed back where you can do it again. Reset to get out.
Justin L. Hubbard.
As a child, go to the Spirit Temple. Go up the stairs and turn right to see water gushing through the floor. Walk up to it and go all the way left. Then, go straight into it. When you get to the top, do a sword jump attack. You will hit the wall and bounce up to the top of the water. Next, go left or right to fall off the Spirit Temple. After a little while, Link will appear at the beginning again. Also, after you are up on top of the water, you can go forward to enter a few rooms you are supposed to enter as an adult. However, when you try to get back, you will be stopped by the wall; cast Farore's Wind before doing this trick. Note: Do not do this as an adult. Doing so may cause your game to freeze, or you may die.
Wait in the Hyrule Field until the music ends, and wait for the rooster to crow. You then have about a five second gap where no music is played. If you enter Kakariko Village during this gap, there will be no background music playing.
Place a bomb down. Roll through it immediately before it explodes and Link will get hit, but will not take any damage. You can also do this on a wooden box. Jump on the box, place a bomb on top of it, then jump off the box. Just before the bomb explodes, roll into the box.
When in a fairies fountain, take out a bottle and swing it at a fairy. Just before you capture the fairy, switch your bottle with anything in your inventory (either as child or adult Link). If done correctly, the "capture the fairy" scene will continue, and when you open your inventory you will notice that the item you selected is now a bottle with a fairy inside. Note: This is permanent -- saving the game is not recommended. Also, if you die the extra bottle's fairy will not have any effect, and will not auto-revive Link.
When you are a child, go to the castle. As soon as you pass the guards and after you get out of the water, you will see a tree. When you are next to the tree, play "The Song Of Storms" and a hole shall appear. Go in the hole. Once there, bomb the first wall to the left. You should now see a Gold Skultula. Stay very close to the exit. Kill the Gold Skultula, and as soon as you throw your boomerang to catch the Gold Skultula Token, go in the exit. You will now have half of the message of when you normally catch a Gold Skultula, and be next to the tree again. Your Gold Skultula count is up by one but the Gold Skultula is still alive in the hole. Note: You can do this as many times as desired.
Go up to somebody you can talk to, Lock onto them, take out the bow, pull back the arrow, but do not release. Talk to them. Link will but the bow away but the arrow will float. When you stop talking, the arrow will disappear but you will still have it.
