Extra rupees

In Koriki Forest, the starting town, go by the shop and jump on the blocks that lead to it to get 5 rupees. Enter in the shop, come back out, and jump on the blocks again to collect more money. There is a door to the right before entering the market. Enter to find some vases and boxes that contain rupees. After collecting the money, exit, then re-enter the room. Search the vases and boxes again to collect the rupees again. When first entering Hyrule Castle, there is a door that resembles the background. Enter and smash all the pots to collect about fifty rupees. Leave the room and return to collect all the rupees again. After collecting all the chickens in Kakariko village for the first time, keep repeating that process to collect 50 rubies each time. Shoot the signs in Gerudo Fortress with a little moon on them with your hookshot for 20 rupees. Go to the front of the marketplace during the day. Walk up to the chains holding the drawbridge all the way to the top. Then, turn and jump off. As Link falls, 20 rupees may be collected. Walk over the other side and repeat for even more rupees.

Fairy fountain locations

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.

Sell it to the boy in the Graveyard in Kakariko Village.

Pyari^Pari, Oct 11, 2006

yamamotodale, Oct 11, 2006

Finding Saria

To find Saria, go to the Lost Woods and move in the following directions: Right, Left, Right, Left, Center, Left, Right.

waivyves, Oct 11, 2006

Finding the 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.

Zxxtra, Oct 11, 2006

Finding Nayru's Love

Nayru's Love is a protective barrier that helps Link withstand damage. It can be found by blowing up the crack between the two palm trees in Desert Colossus.

abcdefghijklmno, Oct 11, 2006

Finding a bag that holds 40 seeds

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.

Xxbandxgeek07xX, Oct 11, 2006

Finding 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.

shylosmith, Oct 11, 2006

Getting Gold Skulltulas

Capture a bug in a bottle and drop them on some soft soil, where Link would put some Magic Beans. Then, 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.

tauruslove06, Oct 11, 2006

Getting the Biggest Quiver

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 bullseye 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.

sadDgRWWf, Oct 11, 2006

Unlimited money

djputo619, Oct 11, 2006

Money from trees

azguy, Oct 11, 2006

Breaking open boxes

aeustc, Oct 11, 2006

Easiest and ultimate ruby collection

Go to the drawbridge in front of the marketplace during the day and run up to the top of one of the chains. Wait for night to arrive (or play the Sun's Song). Carefully run across the bridge to collect three red rubies worth an easy 60 rupees. Play the Sun's Song again to lower the drawbridge. Go into the market and come back out again to repeat the trick.

Rupees with Bunny Mask

After completing the Forest Temple, return to the Temple of Time. Drop the Master Sword back into the stone to change back to Young Link. Go to the mask shop and make sure Link can borrow the Bunny Mask. Link should also have the Giant's Wallet (that holds 500 rupees) for this trick to be most effective. Thirty Gold Skulltulas should also have been collected, and Link should have talked to one of the kids in the house in Kakariko Village that has the curse on them to get the wallet. Buy as much as possible with the current amount of rupees. Go to Hyrule Field and run to the right, towards Lon Lon Ranch. Run until a man running around like an idiot comes into view. Follow him until he sits down and gets tired. Wear on the Bunny Mask and talk to him. He will ask for the mask and fill Link's wallet with rupees.

wadoauthord, Oct 11, 2006

Purple rupees

Kill any enemy with the light arrows to receive a purple rupee. Illegal 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 lure."

KitKat, Oct 11, 2006

Get 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 Geurdo training center.

StrongStone, Oct 11, 2006

Getting 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 right 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 will cost you ten rupees, but will allow another try. Ocarina songs may not be used to teleport to a location during the trade.

Frozen Zora's Domain

Zora's Domain will be frozen when playing as an adult. There is no way to thaw it.

dixed002, Oct 11, 2006

Easy way past the Geurdo

To knock out a Geurdo thief, simply shoot her with an arrow. To freeze her, use the hookshot or longshot.

kairiluvsora93, Oct 11, 2006

Malon's obstacle course

Return to Lon Lon Ranch after getting Talon to go back home (by waking him up with the Cucco the girl in Kakariko Village gives Link). Complete Malon's obstacle course as an adult (talk to her while on Epona) in under fifty seconds. If successful, she'll give Link a cow. It will be at his house in Kokiri Forest. Use it to get Lon Lon Milk by playing Epona's Song in front of the cow.

Hidden pictures

Go to where Zelda is met for the first time. Then, look into the window on his left, as you enter. Pictures of Yoshi, Princess Toadstool, Mario, Bowser and Luigi can now 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 at Link.

ultimategamer22, Oct 11, 2006

Fun songs

Besides using the Ocarina for songs Link is supposed to play in the game, use the following directions to play useless, but fun songs.

crazygamer, Oct 11, 2006

Get Fire Arrows Early

First, get the scarecrow song as a kid. To do this, go to Lake Hylia as a kid through Zora's Domain. Talk to the scarecrow on the shore, the fist by the lake. Take out your ocarina and he'll want to play. Play a song you made and that's your song. Be sure to remember it. Next, you'll need the Longshot. To get this, beat Dark Link in the Water Temple. As an adult, go to the scarecrows and play the song for the first one. Piere will now appear where there is a green Navi but nothing there. Now, when the sun is rising, shoot the sun with an arrow by the Water warp point (with the Water Medalion on it. When the Fire arrows appear, go down the hill. Don't drop, just go to the edge. Play the scarecrow song to make Piere appear. Use the Longshot to hook on and grab the arrows. Good Job! P.S. The Fire Arrows light things on fire.

johnboy709, Oct 11, 2006

Sinking Lure

If you want to easily catch really big fish in the fishing pond without having to spend countless hours, then make sure you have caught the "lunker" fish as an adult and have obtained the gold scale. Now go to the fishing pond and you will find a new lure in one of three places: 1.) in the feeder creek, 2.) in the grass around the perimeter of the area, or 3.) on the log jutting out of the pond. Once you find this lure, try fishing with it. It is irresistible to fish, so catching a 20 pounder will be no problem. However, if you set any records by using this lure, the fish you have caught will be noted as illegal on the aquarium and at the record board in Link's house.

Hidden secret in Hyrule Castle courtyard

When you arrive in the Hyrule Castle courtyard, look at the left window. Now take out your slingshot, and shoot the potted plant. Someone will yell at you to stop doing that, and they will also throw a bomb at you.

jhonjhon, Oct 11, 2006


Make fish easier to catch

Go to the pond as adult Link. Put the Hover Boots on, and pay the guy to fish. Once you have the rod, run onto the pond, and cast while hovering. You can now walk around with the rod cast! While you can do this, let a fish bite the rod. When it has, hold in "A" so as not to loose the fish. Run over to the pond owner, and tell him you want to quit. You'll loose the rod, yet the fish will be stuck in the place it was in before you chose to quit. Now, simply run over to the fish, and the little scene which plays when you catch a fish will play. And there you have it! You can use this to catch the biggest, hardest to reel in fish in the pond with great ease!

guitarhalofreak, Oct 11, 2006

Pass through objects

This is a very unusual glitch that requires you to interact with the cartridge itself. When you come up to a character or object that's blocking your path (such as Mido or the Kokiri blocking the forest exit at the beginning of the game), you must pull up VERY gently on the left side of the cartidge. If done so correctly, the screen will become a bit fuzzy, and if you move forward, you can use this tme to walk through people and objects that aren't completely solid. This trick gives you access to portions of the game you wouldn't be able to get to until later.

kelluim, Oct 11, 2006

Unlimited Skulltulas

First you need to get bombs, the Song of Storms,and the Boomerang. Then go to hyrule castle and 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, then jump down. There will be several walls that can be blown down with a bomb. One of these has a gold skulltilla behind it. BE CAREFUL, first kill the bug then stand right in front of the circle that sends you back to the surface. Next, throw the Boomerang at the token and 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 skulltulla should still be there. Repeat this process until you have 100 or more.

i386, Oct 11, 2006

Sword Stab

Discover a wood indication. Now hold up your shield and as you remain to doing this, press the attack button to swing your sword. Right away follow that up by pushing the Confirm button. Link will start swinging his sword without you requiring to push the button if you timed it right. It will not work if you do not time things properly and inadvertently ruin the sign.
