Before life began, before the world had form, three golden goddesses descended upon the chaotic land of Hyrule, they were Din, the goddess of power, Nayru, the goddess of wisdom and Farore, the goddess of courage. Din, with her strong flaming arms, cultivated the land to create the earth. Nayru poured her wisdom onto the earth to give the spirit of law to the world. Farore's rich soul created all life forms who would uphold the law. These three great goddesses returned to the Heavens, leaving behind the Golden Sacred Triforce. Since then, the Triforce has become the basis for Hyrule's providence, where the Triforce stood became sacred land. In the vast, deep forest of Hyrule, the Great Deku Tree served as the guardian spirit. The children of the forest, the Kokiri, lived with the Great Deku Tree. Each Kokiri had his or her own guardian fairy, except one. His name was Link. Early one morning, Link was having a nightmare. It was the same nightmare he had every night. During a storm, Link would find himself standing in front of a mysterious castle. A rider on horseback, carrying a girl, would race by. The girl would look at Link as if to say something. Then, another rider would appear. This big man clad in black would look down menacingly at Link. Link would then awaken. "Link! Hey, get up, Link! The Great Deku Tree wants to talk to you!" As Link opened his eyes, he saw a fairy floating in front of him. This fairy's name was Navi. Navi was sent to summon Link to the Great Deku Tree. "Oh Navi, thou hast returned!" said the Deku Tree. "Thank you, Link, for coming. Thy slumber these past moons must have been restless, and full of nightmares. A vile climate pervades this world. Verily, ye have felt it. The time has come to test thine courage. I have been cursed. I need you to dispel the curse with your wisdom and courage. Art thou prepared?" Link entered the Great Deku Tree and broke the curse. "Well done, Link! I knew that ye were worthy of carrying out my wishes. A wicked man of the desert cast this dreadful curse on me. Employing his vile, sorcerous energies, the evil one is searching for the Sacred Realm connected to Hyrule. For it is there that one will find the divine relic. The Triforce, that contains the essence of the gods. Whoever holds the Triforce can make their wishes come true. Thou must never allow the desert man to lay his hands on the Sacred Triforce. Thou must never suffer that man to enter the Sacred Realm of Legend. Link, go now to Hyrule Castle. There, ye will surely meet the Princess of Destiny. Present this stone to the Princess. I have foreseen that she will understand everything." The Great Deku Tree gave Link the Spiritual Stone of the Forest. Before dying, the Deku Tree's last words were, "The future depends on thee, Link. Thou art courageous." Here is a story that kind of summarizes the entire game, typed up by myself. It includes spoilers and I don't recommend it if you haven't beaten the game: In the land of Kokiri Forest lives a young boy named Link, where all other Kokiri children live with their faries to guide them. For some mysterious reason, Link does not have a fairy, and feels different from all the other Kokiri. One day, a fairy without a kid, is asked by the Great Deku Tree, ruler of Kokiri Forest to get Link and bring him to him. So, Navi the Fairy wakes him up, and tells him to come and talk to the Deku Tree. However, while on your way, the little Kokiri boss, Mido, won't let you through. It is your responsibility to equip yourself with a proper sword and shield. After doing so, the Deku Tree asks you to enter his body, and save it from the enemies inside. After you do so, he will tell you a story about the most prestigous treasure in the land of Hyrule, the Triforce. It is your job to collect all three spiritual stones, and get to the Sacred Realm. The Deku Tree will then tell you that he was cursed by an evil man from the west, where if he gets his hands on the triforce first, Hyrule will go through a period of evilness. The Deku Tree will reward you with the first spiritual stone, and tell you to move on with your journey. You will now meet people and go places in order to save the land of Hyrule. You will even meet the princess herself, Zelda. She asks you to get the other two stones, and she will protect the ocarina of time from the evil Ganondorf, King of the Gerudos. Along your way to the gorons ruby and zoras sapphire, you will meet some important people that tell you, if you save them and their people, you will be rewarded the stones. This includes saving the Gorons from King Dodongo and becoming a sworn brother of Darunia, king of the gorons. Next, you will have to enter a whales mouth and save Princess Ruto, princess of the zoras, for King Zora himself. After achieving this, you will complete your mission of collecting all three spiritual stones. As you head to the castle to once again meet the Princess and obtain the Triforce, you spot Zelda being taken away into safety from Ganondorf who chases her out. He intimidates you as a little kid, and confronts you. Then he leaves. You noticed that when you saw Zelda escaping, she threw an object into the moat for you to retrieve. It is indeed, the ocarina of time! You are told to play the Song of Time she teaches you in the Temple Of Time to open the doors that lead to the Triforce. When you do, the door indeeds opens, but when you enter, you are surprised to find that Ganondorf has followed you and entered the Sacred Realm, and taken the Triforce before you have. You then notice in the middle of the room, a sword in a stone. You pull it out, and it turns out to be the other object of time, the Master Sword. But when you tug it out, you are in a place called the Chamber of Sages with a man named Rauru that you have never seen before, on the opposite side of you. He tells you that seven years have gone by, and that you should not be scared when you see yourself. As you glance at your body, you notice a matured face, and a grown up body. Seven years have passed as you grabbed the Master Sword, and as the Great Deku Tree told you, Hyrule has gone into a time of evil due to Ganondorf owning the Triforce. Rauru tells you that as the chosen one, it is still your job to obtain the triforce from Ganondorf. He says that in order to open the doors to Ganon's Castle, where you fight him for the Triforce, you must awaken six sages from their temples and collect their medallion. Being the Light Sage, Rauru starts you off by giving you the Light Medallion. Now it is you job to continue your journey and awaken the six sages from their hidden temple: One in a deep forest, one on a high mountain, one in a vast lake, one in the home of the dead, and one far in the west. As you are on your journey to awake the six sages, you will meet new people, and learn your destiny and what happened in your past. After collecting all medallions, you are now skilled enough to enter Ganon's Castle, destroy the barriers feeding the room where he lurks, defeat Ganon himself who made you look like nothing seven years ago, save the Princess and everyone in the land of Hyrule, and finally, obtain the third and final object of your quest, the Triforce itself. Controls Believe me when I tell you that Zelda 64's controls are extremely unique. This section will help you because sometimes adjusting to these controller settings can be difficult. One thing you should know before I start this section is that there is no button that allows you to jump! If you walk up to a ledge, or a pit, or some gap of any sort, you will automatically jump! A Button - On the top of your screen at all times, you will notice a Blue Button that looks a lot like the A Button. This, in the game, is referred to as the 'Action Icon.' Basically, whatever this blue button says during the game is what the A Button will do. For instance, if you walk up to a small passageway that you can't walk in, the Action Icon will say "Crawl." So if you press the A Button, you will make Link crawl. Other things that the A Button does is open treasure chests (that will become a frequent thing in this game), roll (although it will read 'Attack' in the Action Icon), push or pull boxes or other objects that may stand in your way, and make Navi go away or come out. B Button - The B Button is used for your sword only. Pressing B pulls it out if you were storing it on your back, and the B Button puts the sword away if you are not moving. The B Button swings your sword for you, which is probably the easiest control in the game. Also, holding down the B Button when your sword is out makes you go down to one knee, and do a spin attack with the sword if it is out (and you get a fire attack if you have already recieved the spin attack spell). Z Button - The Z Button is the basic attack guide button in this game called 'Z-Targetting.' When you press Z near an enemy, a small yellow box appears around him, allowing you to get your hits in on him whether it be with your sword or another button. Also, the Z Button can change your view, and when Z-Targetting an enemy, you can press C-Up and Navi will give you a description and the name of the enemy you are facing. Analog Stick - Naturally, the Analog Stick in this game allows you to move. It may sound hard to do with the 3D character, but it's actually very easy. Play Super Mario 64 for great practice using the Analog Stick in a 3D game. R Button - The R Button makes you put up your shield and defend yourself. Depending on where the enemy is and where he's coming from, Link may crouch down. Left C, Right C, Down C - These are your buttons to use your other weapons and items. For instance, if you set your deku nuts to C-Left, you will press C-Left to throw them. You'll understand it better once you start playing the game. Up C - Lets you talk to your fairy, Navi, when she wishes to speak to you, and allows you to look around with an inside the character view. Start - Pauses the game, and lets you set your items to C, save, and look at some of the items you have collected. Z + A - Lunges at your opponent during a battle. The Sprital Stones **************************************************** a) Kokiri Emerald **************************************************** ***Kokiri Forest*** Exit your home and talk to Saria, the green hair girl. The follow the dirt path. Take a left at the fork, and continue on until you reach the big hill. Go on up and op over the fences, and go up against the wall and enter the small passage. When in here, watch for boulders. Walk around until you find a big treasure chest and open it up. You now have the Kokiri Sword! Backtrack your way out. Don't forget to equip your sword. Now you'll get the opportunity to explore Kokiri Forest, but your main goal for now is to collect 40 rupees. Good sources are jumping from platform to platform in the water, open the chests in the house that has rocks outside of it, and on the bridge that goes across the forest. Once you have collected 40 rupees, go into the building in the west that's near the water and looks like a volcano. Use your cash to buy the deku sword, and equip it. Now exit, and head over to the exit on the very west of the forest that the kid is blocking. When he sees your sword and shield, he'll let you go. Avoid the plants or chop them with your sword, then run on to meet the Great Deku Tree. Talk to him, and he'll tell you that you are the chosen one. He pens his mouth for you to enter. Walk on in, and now you're inside the Great Deku Tree. ***Inside The Deku Tree*** Find the ladder on the left and climb up to the second floor. Follow the path around and you'll see some vines, spiders, and a treasure chest. Open the chest to get the map. Don't go up the wall now; just keep running until you find a door. Go through it. Z-target the Deku scrub and deflect the nut off your shield and back at him. Then go talk to him, and go through the next door. In the next room, jump onto the platform and let it break. Then climb up the vines to the platform you see. Open the treasure chest to get the Fairy Slingshot. Shoot the ladder above the door so it drops and you can exit the room. Go to the main room with the spiders and vines where you got the map. Pull out your new slingshot and Z-Target the skulltulas on the wall. Shoot them all down and then climb up to the third floor. Climb up the vines to get to the third floor. Run around the path to find a door. Enter it. Inthis room, Hit the switch so the platforms raise, and hop across to the opposite side and pick up the compass from the chest. Now climb up the vines to the entrance, and light the unlit torch with a deku stick. The door will open and you can exit. Return to the third floor of the main room. Jump from one of the edges and land on the web on the first floor to break through. Step on the switch to light the torch, and use the torch to light one of your Deku sticks. Run with the burning stick to the other side of the room and light the web on the wall with your lighted stick. When in the water, you'll have to run across the shallow part. Defeat the next deku scrub and grab his advice. The use your slingshot and hit the gray eye above the locked door to open it up. Jump into the water and find the underwater switch. Hold A to dive then quickly hit the switch, and retrieve to the entrance. Now that the water is drained some more, jump onto the platform and take it across to the other side. Kill the skulltula and push the block over and hop on, then use the door to enter the next room. Light a deku stick in this room and light the torches. Then go into the next room. Light a deku stick with the torch, and burn the web covering the small passage. Crawl through, and you're on the other side of the first basement room. Push the block into the water as far as it goes, then light a deku stick with the torch, and quickly bring it over. Step on the web, and swing the stick to burn a hole in the web so you can fall through. Now you see three deku scrubs. As their brother told you, you must beat them in order..... 3,2,1. They go in order from left to right, so kill them 2,3,1 and talk to them. Now hop back into the water and chop up the plants to stack up on hearts and items. Then go through the door, and you're ready to face the boss, Gohma. Check out the boss section on how to defeat this boss. Grab your heart and step into the blue light to bring you back to the deku tree. He tells you that the evil man of the west has cursed him, and that he will die soon. He gives you permission to leave the forest. You are to go to Hyrule and meet the Princess herself. The fate of Hyrule depends on you. Then he rewards you with the first spiritual stone and dies. **************************************************** b) Gorons Ruby **************************************************** ***Kokiri Forest*** Go back to the forest and exit by going to the very west of the forest. On the bridge, Saria will give you her ocarina. Leave, and enter Hyrule Field. ***Hyrule Field*** Be careful in this place.... At night, stalchilds will come out and attack you! Run forward and you'll spot the castle. Enter into the market. ***The Market*** This place is cool. There are lots of games to play, and stores to shop in. For now, just buy the Hylian Shield, but don't equip it! You'll need it when you're an adult. Then notice the building on the left. You don't have to enter it, just make note of it. This is the Temple Of Time. It will be the most important place in the game a bit later. Talk to the red headed girl that is singing, and she'll tell you about her father. When she's done, walk past her and head toward the castle. ***Hyrule Castle*** Climb the vines you see, and go past the gates. Then purposely get caught by a guard. When you get thrown out, head back to the vines you climbed, and talk to Malon. She'll give you an egg. Climb back up the vines. Now you'll have to sneak by all the guards. It takes practice, but you'll get it. Jump into the stream, and exit at the end. There should be a guy sleeping there. This is Talon, owner of Lon Lon Ranch, and Malon's father. Wake him up by pulling out the chicken, If it hasn't hatched yet, you've got to wait. When he leaves, push the boxes over and use them to jump into the castle courtyard with morw guards. Once again, you have to sneak by the guards. When you get to the end, you'll meet Princess Zelda! She'll tell you her story and ask you to save Hyrule from the evil Ganondorf. The she'll lead you over to her guardian, Impa, who will teach you Zelda's Lullaby on the ocarina. This is the royal family's song that you will need many times later in the game. Impa will lead you out of the castle and direct you to Kakariko Village and Death Mountain. When talking to Zelda, you should have also received Zelda's letter. Hang on to that for now, and go to the center of Hyrule Field, and enter Lon Lon Ranch. ***Lon Lon Ranch*** To get the most important thing out of the way first, go inside the fenced area and talk to Malon. She'll tell you about her mother's song. When she tells you, pull out your ocarina and she'll teach you Epona's song, which will make her horse, Epona, grow fond of you. Now go back and enter the first house to once again find Talon sleeping. This time, you can wake him up by talking to him. Play his game, and find the three chickens. One goes by the door, one in the back, and one against the wall mid way to the back. If you win, he'll give you a bottle of lon lon milk, which is two doses that will refill five hearts. Exit Lon Lon Ranch, and head all the way back to Kokiri Forest. Go to the upper level and enter the lost woods. ***Lost Woods*** When you enter, go right, left, right, left, forward, left, right. You'll now be in the sacred forest meadow. Kill the wolfo to open the gate. You'll have to kill some enemies to get to the back of this place. If you get low on energy, drink some lon lon milk. When you get to the very back of the meadow, you'll see Saria sitting on a stump. Talk to her, and she'll teach you Saria's song. She'll also tell you that she believes this will be a very important place for the both of you in the future....... And she's right. Now I would recommend drinking all your lon lon milk so you have an empty bottle. Go to the top level of the meadow, and jump in the hole to the fairy's fountain. Run up to a fairy and swing your bottle at one to catch it in a bottle. This is better then lon lon milk because it heals you completely and you don't have to pull it out...... When you die, it will automatically come out and heal you! Exit the sacred forest meadow and the lost woods, and go back to Hyrule Field. ***Hyrule Field*** Now it's time to head over to Death Mountain which Impa pointed out to you. Enter the town of Kakariko Village. ***Kakariko Village*** Find the lady who is missing her chickens. Her reward for you if you find her chickens and put them all in the pen is a bottle! See section number 12 on information on how to get all 7 chickens. Then farther than that, follow the path that leads you to the graveyard. Go to the back and find the triforce symbol. While standing on the triforce symbol, play Zelda's Lullaby to reveal a passage under the tombstone. Enter it. Kill all the bats in the first room to open the door. In the next room are enemies called re-deads..... Watch out, they'll choke you! The best approach is to just run by them into the next room. Read the wall and play the sun's song that is taught to you. This allows you to change the setting from day to night and night to day. Backtrack your way out. Now head up to where the mountain is and show the guard Zelda's Letter. He'll open the gate for you. Go past. ***Death Mountain Trail*** Walk up the trail and you'll notice a huge boulder...... It is blocking Dodongo's Cavern. So, keep walking up and take a right when it splits. Watch out for the goron that rolls down. Continue up and enter the town you see. This is Goron City. ***Goron City*** Walk in, and if you don't mind taking a small life risk, drop straight down to the bottom. You'll notice a decorated sealed door. Play Zelda's Lullaby in front of it to open it up, then walk in and you'll notice this huge guy. This is Darunia, head of the gorons. Talk to him and he'll be very grumpy. Play Saria's song for him when you're done talking to him and he'll cheer up and give you the bracelet that gives you the power to pick up bombs! Run to the top and exit Goron City. ***Death Mountain Trail*** When you exit Goron City, run right into the little opening. Pick up the bomb you see and throw it off the cliff. This will blow up the boulder blocking Dodongo's Cavern! Run down there, it's time to pick up that second spiritual stone. ***Dodongo's Cavern*** When you walk in, grab a bomb and place it by the rock wall to blow it up and reveal an entrance. Go forward and jump onto the platform, then jump right, onto the other platform, and onto the walkway around the wall. Pick up the bomb flower and bomb the place where the wall pattern changes. If you want, stick a bomb in front of the beamo too, to kill it. Then run over to the other weird pattern in the wall and bomb it. Stay away from the baby dodongo's, and if you happen to kill one, run away because it explodes after it's dead. Push a statue onto the switch to open the door, and enter. Now you'll have to fight two Lizalfos. They're tough, but a few hits will put them down. Go through the door that opened when they're both dead. In the next room, light a deku stick with the torch and light all the other torches to open the door. Hit the switch in front of you to unlock the door on the other side of the chamber. Head on over there, but first, blow up the weird part of the wall and pick up the map. Now go through the door and throw a bomb, well, you knwo where. Kill the statue, and go into the now unlocked door and pick up the compass. Then go back to the previous room. Grab a bomb and put it in front of the pillar and the pillar will turn into a staircase. Climb up, and go through the door at the top. In the next room, find the statue that is blocking the ladder, and push him away, then climb up it. Hit the switch and you know what to do now..... Cross the bridge, and drop into the room with the moving blades. Z-target and sidestep so you can see if it's safe to cross. When you get to the end, you'll see a block in front of a ladder. Climb up and turn around and jump onto the platform with the bomb flower. Pick the bomb up and time it so that it explodes as it hits the wall. In this room, nail the eye above the door with your slingshot, and enter the next Lazalfo room. Kill them and enter the next room. This time, shoot the eye that is in the hole in the wall to put the fire out. The next room has a chest with the bomb bag in it. Now you can carry bombs with you! Hit the switch and in the next room, go onto the bridge. Here, you will have to drop a bomb on each eye of the alligator thing in the main room, to get it to open its mouth. Get back in the main room via the new platform elevator, and enter the door through the alligator's mouth. You'll see a switch that won't stay down, so instead, hop up into the hole. Follow the left path, into a room of blocks. Go around them to the end and you'll spot a pushable block. Push it onto the switch, and place a bomb on the weird spot on the floor, and you'll drop into a pit. It's time to fight King Dodongo for the Goron's Ruby, so check out the boss section for information on how to do that. After deafeating King Dodongo, grab your heart and step into the light. You'll be thanked by Darunia and be rewarded the seond spiritual stone! You'll also befriend all the gorons, and become a sworn bother of Darunia! Yeah! **************************************************** c) Zoras Sapphire **************************************************** ***Death Mountain Trail*** While talking to Darunia, he'll tell you that there's a fairy on top of Death Mountain. And since Navi won't stop bothering you, you should go ahead and do that now. So, run up the mountain until you reach the hill and the path to Goron City. This time run up the hill. Hop onto the platform thing, and throw a bomb at the rock so it explodes. Hop up to the top. Now is a good time to equip your Hylian Shield. Run up the path and when the boulders start falling, block them with your shield. Keep running until you come to the vine wall. Kill the skulltulas with your slingshot and climb to the top. Now, you'll see an entrance to the left. Don't go in there now, but make note of it, for it will be very important later. Instead, go left and bomb the wall where the pattern changes. Go on in to get the magic meter from the fairy. Now exit and talk to the owl. He'll give you a ride to Kakariko Village. Head on out to Hyrule Field. ***Hyrule Field*** Hop into the stream and go against it to the left. Eventually, you will end up in Zora's River. ***Zora's River*** Chop up those plants for some nice refills on items, then blow up the boulders with bombs. Move on and use a chicken to get you to the other side of the river. Keep jumping from side to side. It's real easy. Soon, you'll come about a log extending into the river. If you need some cash, go onto the log and play some songs for the frogs for a good amount of rupees. Now, keep on progressing. You'll come across a bridge. Not many enemies at all in this place. Get to the top of the land strips and play Zelda's Lullaby in front of the waterfall to open up a secret passage to Zora's Domain. ***Zora's Domain*** Run up to the top and you'll see King Zora. Talk to him and he'll tell you about Princess Ruto missing. Now go to the left into the tunnel, and talk to the Zora there. Play her diving game, and win, which is very easy. Then go back up to her and she'll give you the silver scales so you can dive longer! Now go to the bottom of the water, and dive, and go through the passage. You're now at the bottom of Lake Hylia. ***Lake Hylia*** When you come out, there will be a bottle under the water. Pick it up, then go back through the passage to Zora's Domain. ***Zora's Domain*** Set the bottle to one of your C buttons and present it to King Zora. There was a message in the bottle from Ruto saying she is trapped in Jabu Jabu's belly. He'll give you the bottle to keep, then he'll move over to let you by. Now, don't go past him just yet. Head to the bottom near the torch circled by stones in the water. Use your bottle to grab a fish! Ok, then go up past King Zora and into Zora's Fountain. ***Zora's Fountain*** Right when you enter, you will see a whale right in front of you. This is Jabu Jabu, and we understand that Ruto, Princess of the Zora's, is trapped in there! So you have to go in! Ok, ok, take out the fish in the bottle and Jabu Jabu will open his mouth to eat it, and suck you inside with it. Time to get Ruto! ***Inside Jabu Jabu's Belly*** Run straight through the water to the blocked door. Pull out your slingshot and shoot the thing hanging on the ceiling to unlock the door. Go through the door. In this room you'll see electric jellyfish all over. Hit them with your slingshot or even a deku stick. Now follow the path around but DO NOT take the elevator! Instead go through the next door and in this room, you'll meet Princess Ruto. Take a look at the pit with the tentacle blocking it..... It will be improtant later. Ruto will fall down a hole after you talk to her. Fall down it yourself. Talk to her twice, and she will let you carry her. Pick her up. Now go through the door behind you, the one closest to you and follow it. At the end of the room, you'll come to a gap with a switch in the middle. Throw Ruto to the other side, then hit the switch, and swim over to her, and pick her up again. Shoot the thing hanging from the ceiling to unblock the door and enter. Wait for the elevator to come down and let it take you up. Go through the door and you'll be back in the room where you first met Ruto. Avoid the pits and go through the door on the opposite side of the room. Now go straight, then right when you get to the middle. You'll come to a switch and a door blocked by a tentacle. Obviously, go in the one you can. Put Ruto down and kill all the stingers in this room. After they're all dead, a chest appears, and.... It's the boomerang! Pick up Ruto and exit, then go straight from this room until you come about the next switch. Step on it, and Navi will tell you it won't stay down. So, put Ruto on it, and enter the room. Kill the tentacle by Z-Targetting the middle, and chucking the boomerang at it. You'll get the map. Now get Ruto either from the switch, or the previous room with the pits, and then go into the next free door. Kill all the bubbles by Z-Targetting them and hitting them with your boomerang. As a result, you'll get the compass. Now head out of this room and head back to the room where you got the boomerang. You'll notice the tentacle blocking the door is gone. Take that side door and kill the tentacle in there. Leave the room, and take the center path and kill the final tentacle. When it's dead, leave the room and return to the room with the pits. If you lost Ruto, she'll be here. Now, remember when I told you to take note of the pit the tentacle was blocking? You'll notice that it's gone, so fall through! You'll be in a room with 2 gold skulltulas, and some jellyfish. Go through the door behind you. You're now in a room with the third spiritual stone on a platform! Throw Ruto up there to get it, as she tells you, but the platform will raise, and you'll have to fight Bigocto! Z-Target him with your boomerang, and throw it at him to stun him. When he's unstunned, he'll spin around. While he's spinning around, throw your boomerang at him again. His butt will be facing you, and it will turn green, and he'll stay there for a few seconds. Slash his green ass with your sword! Repeat this process until he dies. Difficulty: (1-5) 1 Now jump on the platform and you'll be lifted to a new room. Go down the passageway and open the door. You'll see red wobbley things. Stun them with your boomerang, and use them as steps across the water and into the next room. Jump onto the platform, and you'll head down to the room you saw a while ago. Pick up one of the boxes and go lay it down on the switch, to open the door. Kill all the jellyfish here and climb up the vines to the platform. You'll see a white thing hanging from the ceiling, but there's a sheet of glass in the way, not allowing you to hit it. Z-target the white thing, and move over as much as possible without falling off, and throw the boomerang at it. The door will open. Go in, and it's time to fight Barinade. Check out the Boss Section on how that's done. Grab your heart piece, and step into the blue light. You'll be in Zora's Fountain with Ruto. When she asks, say you want that saphire, and there you go, all 3 spiritual stones! The Medallions **************************************************** d) Light Medallion **************************************************** ***Zora's Fountain*** After getting that third and final spiritual stone, you're ready to obtain the triforce from the sacred realm! Exit Zora's Fountain and into Zora's Domain! ***Zora's Domain*** What are you waiting for? Run down and exit this place! ***Zora's River*** The quickest way to get out of here is to hop in the river after exiting Zora's Domain, and let it take you right out to Hyrule Field. ***Hyrule Field*** Head to the Castle to give the stones to Zelda. But, when you get to the bridge, you will see her riding with Impa on a horse. You'll notice that she throws something into the moat. You turn around to hop in, but the King of Evil is right infront of you! He'll ask if you saw them, and you'll automatically defend the Princess. He'll intimidate you by telling you that you are no match for him, and he'll throw a big ball of electricity at you! He'll get his laughs, but then he'll ride away..... You'll get him back at the end of the game. Hop into the moat and grab that object, and it is, Zelda's Ocarina Of Time! When you get out of the water, you'll see her at the Temple of Time. She has gone to safety, but you must now go to the altar in the Temple of Time and play the Song of Time which she teaches you to open up the Sacred Realm leading to the Triforce itself! ***Market*** Go right in, and in case you don't know, the Temple of Time is the building off to the right in the back with 4 gossip stones in front of it. ***Temple of Time*** Play that song she taight you, and the three stones will rise and the door will open. Now, don't expect to see the Triforce sitting on a pillow here, because when you walk in, you'll get a message from Ganon saying that you have lead him to the Triforce, and it is his! But, you do see a sword stuck in a stone there. Pick it out, and you'll drift up to the Chamber of Sages. ***Chamber of Sages*** You'll see a man by the name of Rauru in this place with you. He'll tell you that he is the Light Sage, and that you have awoken him. You must awaken the five other sages to open the door to Ganon's Castle, and defeat him yourself to bring back peace to the land of Hyrule. Before you go, he will reward you with the Light Medallion. It is now your responsibility to awaken the other sages and obtain their medallions. But don't be surprised when you see yourself! After obtaining the two pieces of time, the Ocarina of Time, and the Master Sword, seven years have gone by, and you are a full grown, matured kid. ***Temple of Time*** You're back in the Temple of Time. You'll meet Sheik, one of the Sheikah, and she (that's not a typo, see the very bottom of this FAQ to find out who it is) will tell you that you'll need a new skill to obtain the first medallion. Ok. **************************************************** e) Forest Medallion **************************************************** ***Market*** When you exit the Temple of Time, you'll notice a ring of fire atop Death Mountain, redeads in the market with no stores, and evil reeking all over the land of Hyrule. This is all Ganondorf's doing. Anyway, exit to Hyrule Field. ***Hyrule Field*** First, you'll want to head over to Lon Lon Ranch. Check out section number 12 on information how to get Epona. Now, ride out to Hyrule Field, and head over to Kakariko Village. Head straight back to the graveyard. Go to your extreme left to the hill, and pull the grave, and drop in. Now you'll race Dampe's spirit. It's pretty easy. He'll drop fire in your way, and if you avoid this, you should easily make it to the end. If you keep up with him to the end, he'll reward you with the hookshot! Yeah! Now take the hidden exit behind the chest. When you reach the blus block, play the Song of Time to reveal stairs. Run up and drop down. You're in the windmill. Talk to the guy and show him your Ocarina and he'll teach you the Song of Storms. Exit the windmill, the village, and even the field and return back to your homeland: Kokiri Forest. ***Kokiri Forest*** Notice anything? No one remembers you and it's filled with enemies! This is all the doing of the forest temple. Tuime to awaken the Forest Sage! Go up the hill and into the Lost Woods. ***Lost Woods*** Go right, left, right, left, forward, left, right, and into the Sacred Forest Meadow. Along the way, Mido will block you off. Just play Saria's Song and he'll let you go. Now, getting through this maze is tough because of those huge guys with spears blocking you. Well, they may be big, but they're pretty retarded, because you can run right by them and if they don't see you, you'll get through. At the end, don't continue on. Instead, climb up the ladder and drop into the hole. Stack up on fairies, then head back to where you were and go forward. Get past the huge guy with the bat by simply avoiding his ground shaking thing (*shrug*). Go to the stone where you met Saria as a kid, and Sheik will drop down. She'll srop down and teach you the Minuet of the Forest, which warps you to the medallion symbol in the Sacred Forest Meadow when you desire. When she leaves, stand on the stump, and shoot your hookshot at the tree. Get up there, and, well, remember how Saria told you that she felt this place would be very important someday? Well, she hit the bulls eye, because this is the Forest Temple. ***Forest Temple*** Run forward and kill the two wolfos. Then, go right over to the vines and climb up them. Get to the branch and walk across, then jump over to the other side and grab the key from the chest. Now drop down, and enter the second room. Kill the skulltula by Z-Targetting it and shooting it with the hookshot. Now go into the main room. You'll see a cinema of ghosts stealing the flames from the torches. Run straight across to the other side. Kill the blue flames by Z-Targetting, and hitting them with your hookshot, then slash them with your sword. Then go into the next room. Go through the next room and you'll have to fight 2 stalfos. It takes skill, and their tough, but the reward is a second small key. Get some hearts and other things from the pots, then go back to the main room. In the main room, find a passage that leads you to a blue block. Play the Song of Time to make it disappear, and enter the next room. Run over to the vine covered wall, and kill the skulltulas that you can with the hookshot. Watch out for the skulltula at the top. Go through the door and kill the flaming skull to give you the map. Enter the next door and you'll be on a balcony. Hit the gray eye above the other balcony with your hookshot to pull yourself over there. Hit the switch, then kill the skulltula and climb down the vined wall. Climb down the ladder of the now-drained well. Run down it until you reach a chest with another small key. Now climb up the vines and you'll be back in the room you came from. Find the door that leads you to the main room. Go through the locked door to your right. Kill the skulltula and enter the door on the other end. In the next room, climb up both ladders and follow the arrows on the floor to the blue block. Push it it sits into the square that the arrows lead to, and you'll hear that tune that plays when you solve a secret. Find the red block up here, and pull it until you can't anymore, then go back down to the first block. Go against the arrows to where the blue block was covering, and you'll spot a ladder. Climb up, and you'll wind up on the other side of the block. Push it as far as it goes, go back down the ladder, onto the blue block, and push the same red one until it fits. Now climb it, and climb the ladder above it. Run right through this room to lead you to the first twisted hallway. Follow this hallway until you reach the end of the room. Hurry across to the locked door and enter. Go down the stairs and into the next room. Now you'll have to fight 2 stalfos that come back to life after you kill them! So, you'll fight a total of 4. Don't worry, however, because the reward after killing them is the fairy bow! Now, go backwards into the room with the stairs. Now, using your bow, find the picture with the ghost in it. Stay far away, and shoot it. Do this to all 3 pictures, and you'll have to fight the ghost. Don't be surprised by its moves; they are the same moves a poe uses. After defeating her, you'll get another key and you'll get the red flame back in the main room. Now, go through the room you fought the stalfos in, and out the other door. Now you'll face the blue ghost. Use the same technique you did with the red one. You'll get the compass, and you'll have the blue flame lit. Now, you're gonna head back, all the way to where you pushed the blocks. Above the doorway to the twisted hallway is a gray eye. Shoot it with an arrow and the hallway will straighten. Now, run to the end of the room, pick up the boss key from the chest, and drop in the hole. Kill the flaming skulls in this room and exit. Follow the wall and enter the door on the right. You'll have to fight a hand monster here. Kill all of its parts, and grab the key as your reward. Exit, take a right, and enter the next door you see. Head back into the room where you shot the eye. Shoot it again to twist the hallway, then go through it, to the end, and go down the stairs and into the room where you fought the stalfos. Keep moving into the next room where you fought the blue ghost. Enter this locked door. Jump to the right into the hallway with the skulls. Kill them, and enter the door at the end of the hall. Hop onto one of the rotating platforms, and pull out your bow. Draw your arrow, and shoot it when the fire in the center of the room is lined up with the eye covered in ice. If you time it correctly, the ice will melt, and twist the previous hallway. Get back up there, and enter the now twisted hall. Fall down the hole in the room at the end. As soon as the ceiling rises back up, run over to the switch, being cautious of skulltulas. When the ceiling rises again, run over to one of the squares near the chest, then when it goes up again, enter the next door. Shoot the picture on the wall with an arrow, and the green ghost will have a bunch of blocks dropped on the floor. You'll have to put the puzzle together in the time given. If you fail, they'll mix up, and an additional 10 seconds will be added onto your time. After solving the puzzle, you'll fight the green ghost, just like the others. Kill her, and enter the door. Kill the skulltula and enter the door to put you in the main room. Head to the center of the room, where you will fight the final ghost: the purple one. She'll pull some nifty tricks, like splitting into 4 ghosts, and you'll have to peg the right one. The correct one will be the one that spins when it appears. After killing it, all the torches will be lit, and an elevator will appear. Take it to the basement floor. This may sound weird, but in this room, push the walls around! Eventually, you will put it at the correct spot, and both a switch and the hallway leading to the boss will be open. Hit the switch, and enter the boss room. Now, in here, you'll have to run up the stairs and walk around the platform a but until the boss appears. Check out the boss section on information on this fight. Afterwards, garb your heart, and step into the blue light, and receive your forest medallion from Saria, the Forest Sage! You'll end up near the Great Deku Tree, and a root will grow, and the Deku Tree will come back to life! (Sort of). You also learn the interesting story of your past..... You're not a Kokiri! Kokiri's don't grow up, so how could you.... Oh, your Mom was wounded and the Deku Tree let you stay in Kokiri Forest, as the destined child....... This explains the no fairy thing. Ok, whatever. **************************************************** f) Fire Medallion **************************************************** Navi will pretty much clue you in on what to do now...... "There's something strange about that cloud on top of Death Mountain," so, head through Kokiri Forest, which is now enemy-free, to Hyrule Field, and to Kakariko Village, then Death Mountain, then Goron City.... (Deep breath). Or for short, go to the Lost Woods and go right, left, forward...... Cuts off about 4 minutes. ***Goron City*** Go down to the second or third level, wherever the rolling goron is. Now here's the tricky part: you'll have to take one of your bombs from your bomb bag (bomb flowers don't work) and time it so that it explodes on the rolling goron. When this happens, go talk to him. Turns out that this is Darunia's son, named after you! He'll give you the Goron Tunic if you promise to go stop Valvagia, the guy threatening to eat gorons in the Fire Temple. He opens the store for you, if you want to stack up, and tell you to move the statue in Darunia's Room to help lead to the Fire Temple. So, head down there, and pull the statue out, toward you, and enter through the passage. You're now in the lower part of Death Mountain Crater. ***Death Mountain Crater*** See that broken bridge sitting right in front of your face? Use your hookshot to pull yourself to the other side. Now walk forward, and you'll be interupted by Sheik, who will teach you the Bolero of Fire. Now you can warp here! Go forward, bombing the rocks in the way, and climb the ladder down the long passage. Now run forward, and enter..... The Fire Temple. ***Fire Temple*** Avoiding the Keese, run up the stairs and through the door on the left. Immediately, you'll see Darunia enter the boss room, as he tells you he'll try to stop Volvagia. It is your job to get the Megaton Hammer, and save the gorons. So, hop from platform to platform, until you see the goron in the jail. Hit the switch to set him free, and open the chest in the cell for a small key. Now exit into the first room, and open up the locked door. Go across the bridge to the end, and to the right, until you come to an obviously looking bombable wall. Bomb it up, enter the door, and release the goron for another key. Now head to the exact opposite side of the room, and enter the bottom door. Another goron, and another key. Now unlock the door at the end of the bridge. Slide down the board, and climb up the right part of the cage. Watch out for the bats at the top. If you want, go to the other side and pick up some hearts. Push the block onto the rising fire, and hop aboard to shoot up. Open the locked door. In this room, head left, to the top, then jump to the other side with the block. Push it off, then pull it as far as it goes. Use the wall to climb up. Now go to the ledge and hit the silver diamond with your hookshot, to remove the flame from the cage. Quickly run over to it, and climb it to the top. Go through the door. Now, run all the way to the left to free a goron for a key, and all the way to the left to free a goron for a key. The find the diagonal part of the wall, and open up the locked door. Hit the eyeball with an arrow to open the door, and go grab the map. Then go in the locked door. Watch out for the flame chasing you here. Head over to the brown steps. Get to the top, and enter the door. You're now at the top of the previous room with the boulders. Hop onto the first platform, kill the torch slug, and bomb the weird part of the floor. Climb down using the cage, and free the goron and grab the key as well. Climb back up to the top. Find the switch on the other platform, step on it, and get the key from the other side. Then head back to the room with the chasing fire. Hop onto the platform with the locked door..... Yes, it's possible, you can make it, and open it. Go through the door and enter this huge room. Being cautious of the walls of fire, follow the door to the right, and enter it to find the compass. Now head back to the entrance, only go left, and get to the locked door..... Open it up. You'll free that goron later, for now, just run through and you're on the other side of the dangerous room. Hit the switch, still being careful, and it will remove the huge curtain of fire covering the door. Get over there, and bomb the first door because it's fake, and enter the next. Now you'll fight the flare dancer, so simple I don't even consider it a boss. When it spins around, Z-Target it and pull the little ball out with your hookshot. Then slash it with your sword. Very easy. Hop onto the elevator (that's what the center becomes when the flame burns out) and ride up. Climb the cage, and go to the ledge and once again, hit the diamond object with your hookshot. Now run over to the other cage, and climb up, and enter through the door. Ok, you'll have tohit the switch to make the ring of fire surrounding the chest disappear. Then, you'll have to carefully and quickly, run on the steps of the circle, to get to the chest. At the end, open the chest up for the megaton hammer! Now go back to the beginning of the room, and use the hammer to knock down the block. Drop down, and once again use the hammer to beat up the statue, and go through the door. In this room, be cautious of the keese, and hit the square face with the hammer to form a staircase. Now pick up one of the crates behind you, take it to the bottom of the stairs, and drop it on the switch. Now go through the door. Again, hit the face with the hammer to fall into the big dangerous room. You'll see a rusted switch. Use your megaton hammer to keep it down, and enter the un-barred door. Jump to the other side of the gap, and play the Song of Time to move the blue block to the bottom. Hit the switch with your hammer to free the goron below, then talk to him. He'll tell you that a statue in the first room leads to a door. Now use the block to hop back out and into the big room. Hop onto the big platform, and hit the square face with your hammer. You'll fall down, into the room you met Darunia, and it will form a stepping stone to the boss door! One problem: We need the boss key. So, go back to the very first room, and go to the left, and break up the statue with your hammer to reveal a door..... What the goron told you about. Kill all the enemies in this room to open the door, and in the next room, avoid the flying grass pieces to get into the next room. Now, once again, you have to take on a flare dancer. Use the same technique as before. A door will open when he is dead, and you'll get some bombs. Enter the door that just opened. Smash the switch with your hammer to open the gate and free the final goron. The reward here is the boss key! Exit by going straight through the door across from you, and you're back in the first room. Go up the stairs, into the room you met Darunia, and open up the boss door. Time to take on Volvagia for that Fire Medallion! See the boss section on how to beat this boss. Afterwards, you will be rewarded with the fire medallion from the fire sage, Darunia! Yeah! Then you'll be back in Death Mountain Crater. Ok, all start calling this the quest for the Water Medallion...... **************************************************** g) Water Medallion **************************************************** ***Death Mountain Crater*** First thing you'll want to do is maximize your magic meter. Go back over the borken bridge, near the entrance to Darunia's room, and instead of entering, go left across the bridge, and smash the rocks with your megaton hammer. There is a Great Fairy in here, that will make your magic meter twice as big as it originally was! Now, exit back into Goron City, and head over to Zora's Domain. ***Zora's Domain** Things have really changed in this place...... It's frozen over! All the Zora's are stuck under the think sheet of ice! Go up to the top, and you'll see King Zora on his throne, froze. go past him into Zora's Fountain, you know, with Jabu Jabu. ***Zora's Fountain*** No Jabu Jabu, and there are bits of ice all over in the water. You may want to hop straight out for a heart piece, but after that, go to the extreme right, and into the ice cavern. ***Ice Cavern*** NOTE: You'll need 2 EMPTY bottles here! 1 will do, but it'll be a lot easier with 2! Run forward until you reach a room, and kill all the enemies to open up the door. In this room, being cautious of the spinning blade, collect the silver rupees. Fairly easy. Then go through the passage that opened up. Killing all of the enemies here first will be helpful, then fill at least 2 bottles with the blue flame. If you have 3 or 4 bottles, fill them all up. Go over to the chest with the red ice covering it, and burn it with the fire to get the map of the Ice Cavern. Now refill your bottle with more blue fire. Now go back to the room where you collected the silver rupees. You can burn the red ice in here for some items and such, but if you do, be sure to burn the one where you can get more fire. Then burn the one that leads to a passage, and again, refilling would be a good idea. In this room, you'll have to collect silver rupees by using the block in the room. One is covered in red ice, but there's a flame in the room. Afterwards, push the block to the part of the room that just opened up, and climb in. Along the way, burn the red ice with blue fire, and you won't need anymore. Now you'll have to fight a wolfos to complete this place. He's real easy, just like the others, only he's colored differently. After defeating him, you'll get the iron boots from a chest! Then, Sheik will appear and tell you that Zora's Domain freezing over is caused by the boss of the Water Temple. Sheik goes on to say that the Princess of the Zoras was saved, but you have to destroy the monster in the Water Temple to save the rest of the Zoras. Then she'll teach you the Serenade of Water and disappear. Making sure you have a bottle of blue ice, return to Zora's Domain and save King Zora with it. He'll reward you with the Zora Tunic! Now play the Serenade of Water to warp to Lake Hylia. ***Lake Hylia*** Put on your iron boots and Zora Tunic, and enter the lake where there is water. You'll see a gate with a switch above it. Hit the switch with your hookshot, and the gate will open, revealing the entrance to the Water Temple. ***Water Temple*** Enter, and take off your iron boots to float to the top. Now, put them back on so you're standing on the surface of the main room. Find the passage that has two torches in front of it, and you'll see Ruto. She'll tell you that to save Zora's Domain, you'll have to destroy the boss in this Temple. Then she'll ask you to follow her. Do so by taking off the boots and floating to the top. She'll be gone. Enter the door and kill the spike balls with your hookshot to get the dungeon map. Then, exit, and play Zelda's Lullaby near the triforce symbol on the wall to drain the water. Drop down the hole. You'll have to light these torches to open the door. Use Din's Fire to light both of them quickly, or the hard way, shooting an arrow through the lit one to the unlit one. Enter the door. Kill all the clams by hitting them with your hookshot when they open their mouths. Your reward is a key. Now go back to the main room. Go to the exact opposite side of the room, and push the block. Put on your iron boots to sink to the bottom of the passage. In here, hit the diamond to make a line of water to rise up. Use this as a stepping stone to the door on the other side. Now you'll see a whirl pool. You'll also notice a diamond object on a statue and a pipe under the water. Hop into the pool and strap on your iron boots when you're near the top of the pipe. Shoot the diamond with your hookshot then quickly use your hookshot to hit the target to get to the other side. Don't worry about the clams, just take off your boots and float to the top. You'll get a small key in here. Afterwards, backtrack all the way to the main room. Find the locked door here and open it up. Use your hookshot to pull yourself up to the higher levels. Play Zelda's Lullaby near the Triforce on the wall to bring the water up mid way. You'll hear the chime of a secret. This is because a block on the bottom raised up revealing a passage. Put the iron bootts back on and drop down to it. Hit the diamond with the hookshot and then kill all the enemies to open up the other gate. Grab the key in here, then go back to the previous room, and from there, to the main room. Sink to the bottom with the iron boots and go back to the passage with the two torches surrounding it where you met Ruto. Float up and you'll be at the second level now. Bomb the wall and pick up your third small key! Now head back into the main room. Float up to the second level, which is now the highest you can go, and find the passage with pots in front of it. Go through until you get to the end, and use the hookshot targets along the way. You'll see a chest covered in water, and a diamond object. Stand next to the chest, and peg the diamond with an arrow. Then open the chest to receive the compass. Once again, head back to the main room. Float to the second level and find the locked door. Open it up, and stand on the water. Be careful because a tekitite may fall down. Hit the diamond with an arrow to rise up. Enter the door and play Zelda's Lullaby to raise the water to its highest. Find the tunnel with the block in it. Pull it as far as possible, then go to the opposite side of the room and open the locked door. Kill the keese first in here, then hop onto the first platform. Then use your hookshot to reach platform to platform until you get to the top. Use your last key to open the door here at the top. Hit the diamond object here to raise all the statues up. The use your hookshot to get to the first platform. Now, hit the diamond again to lower it. Use the hookshot target left of the statue, then jump over it, and once again, hit the diamond. Pull yourself over to the final platform, and hit the diamond object once more to lower the water. Stand on the staue and hit the diamond and use this as a ladder to the top. Now kill the tekitites, and use the hookshot target on top of the ceiling to pull yourself over to where the Like Like lurks. Kill it, and grab some magic meter refillers from the pots. Enter this room. Now, you must fight Dark Link. Run to the back of the room, then back to the tree, and you'll see a duplicate of yourself, only he's gray! Now, I don't know what the big hype is about this guy, I think he's easy, but I love fighting him! Z-Target him, and use Din's Fire on him when he's close. He'll burn, and sink in the water, then pop up behind you. Now, just Z-Target him and keep swinging your sword until it hits him. Continue this process a few more times and he's dead. The door on the other side opens, and the room transforms! Cool! Enter the door. In here is a chest. Open it up and it's the longshot! It's an upgrade to your hookshot and goes twice as far! Now, go to the back of the room and play the Song of Time near the blue block in the ground. Drop down the hole that appears. Now, you'll have to jump into the water and avoid the pit things! It's actually surprisingly easy. When you get to the end, hop onto the platform without the pots and shoot the gold eye near the ceiling. The gate will move, and you'll have to quickly use the small chest that appears as a longshot target. Get over there, and open it up for a key. Hop into the hole you see, and from there, head back to the main room. Now, raise the water once again to mid-way. (If you forget how, check out the beginning) and look for the gold eye. Peg it with an arrow, and use the longshot target to get across. If you listened to the directions earlier and moved the block, you'll get to a small key. Now go back into the main room. Drop to the bottom and go to the tunnel you haven't already explored. Use the target to get up there, and open up the door with your key. Kill the first four tekitites by stunning them with the longshot and hitting them with arrows. For the last two, just hit them with arrows, then swim across. In this room, stingers will come flying out of the water at you and swarm' you! But, they're easy to kill. Now drop down and bomb the two parts of the wall where the patter changes, and the other where there is a crack. Go back and forth to push and pull the block onto the switch. This will raise the water, allowing you to get to the platform and open the door. Hit the switch here to unlock the doors and give you water pillar stepping stones. Use the to cross the gap. Get through the door in time. Put on your iron boots here, and when a boulder passes, hop in and get into the hole. This leads to a locked door. Open it with your last key and get the boss key! Also, grab some fairies from the pots in there. Now, backtrack all the way back to the main room. Raise the water to its highest point, and find the purple statue. Get over there with the longshot, and get more fairies from the pots if you need. Now enter the door. The tricky part here is getting to the boss door. There's a hill with blades running across. You'll have to hold the analog stick up the entire time. Go over to the left, and as soon as the first one is out of your way, go! When you're at the top, open up the boss door. Check out the boss section on how to defeat Morpha. Afterwards, grab your heart, and step into the light. Then, grab your Water Medallion from the Water Sage, Princess Ruto! Ok, I'll now consider this the quest for the Shadow Medallion. **************************************************** h) Shadow Medallion **************************************************** ***Lake Hylia*** You'll see Sheik. Go talk to her, and she'll tell you some non improtant stuff. Yeah. Then, step onto the brown platform and shoot an arrow at the sun and the fire arrows will come down! They're not required, but they're cool and they explode on impact. Now for a shortcut, play the Prelude of Light to the Temple of Time. ***Temple of Time*** Exit, and head over to Kakariko Village ***Kakariko Village*** You'll witness the best cinema of the game here, as Sheik stares into the well and houses are on fire. A shadow will come out of the well, knock down Sheik, teach you a lesson, and it will rain. Sheik will tell you that the evil Shadow that Impa locked in the well has been released. She goes on to tell you that Impa is the Shadow Sage, and she'll teach you the Nocturn of Shadow that warps you to the entrance. Now she'll disappear. If you don't already have the lens of truth, check out section #21. Otherwise, play your newly-learned song to warp to the place above the graveyard..... The entrance to the Shadow Temple.... Now, not so fast! To open this door, you have to light all those torches! Simply stand in the center and use Din's Fire to light them all at once, and the door will open. Go on in. ***Shadow Temple*** Walk forward until you reach the gap. Use the target to pull yourself over with the longshot, Now, you'll get a message saying the only one that can pass in the one with the saced eye. Use the lens of truth to get through. In here, use the lens of truth to find the picture that leads to a passage. Enter, and then through the door. Leaving your lens of truth on, you'll eventually find two passages. In one, you'll kill keese and a mummy to get the map. In the other, you fight Dead Hand for the hover boots. To kill Dead Hand, purposely get caught by his hand, and when he leans near you, hit him in the face with the sword. Very simple. After collecting both of these items, exit to the room with the pictures (it's the second room). Go near the bird thing and approach the pushable block. It will tell you to make its beak face the correct path. Using the lens of truth, point its beak to the passage you just went through. If you get it wrong, you'll be dropped down a hole and lose some life. Getting it correct rewards you with the gate opening. Using your hover boots, float over there and enter. Take off the boots and run forward until you reach the beamos. First, go to the door to the left. Collect all the silver rupees here while avoiding the blade. You'll be rewarded with a small key. Now exit, and go to the other door. Kill the two mummies for the compass. Exit, and go behind the beamo. Drop a bomb to reveal a locked door. Now you have to keep running down this hall, while killing skulltulas on the way. When you reach the end, you'll go down a long, grassy, dangerous stretch. Watch out for the hand that grabs you, and get to the end and kill the stalfo. Put on your hover boots, and hop onto the platform, then onto the floor-like platform. Collect the silver rupees here. The final one is hidden; bomb the beamo and you'll see it. The gate behind you will open. Go on in. Using your lens of truth, you'll spot a block in the wall. Push it along the path, and switch when you're gonna be criched by the blades above. When you get to the end, go onto the blades to find the switch on the left side. Hit it, then get to the other side using the other falling blade. Open the chest to get a key, and enter the room where you got the silver rupees. Walk up the brown path and use the lens of truth to spot the moving platforms. Hop onto them until you reach the door. Kill the enemies, and use your lens of truth to find longshot targets and spikes. Collect all the silver rupees to open up the other door. Climb up the stairs and grab a bomb flower. Toss it into the statue and a key will pop out. Grab it, and kill the keese in the room to re-open the door so you can exit. Use your lens of truth to spot a longshot target here and use it to open the locked door. Put on your iron boots here so the fans have no effect on you, and get past the switch blades to the end. Use your lens of truth to see the invisible passage, equip your hover boots, and let the fan push you across to the door. Kill the mummies, then bomb the brown stuff by the entrance. Use your lens of truth to spot a chest with a key in it, then go to the back of the room and open the door. Push and pull the block in here to make the ladder reachable. Climb up, and jump onto the ship. To get it moving, play Zelda's Lullaby on the triforce symbol. Along the way, you'll have to fight 2 stalfos that hop aboard. When the ship starts to sink, jump to the platform on the left, and enter the door. Use your lens of truth to spot walls and floormasters. You'll need to find 3 doors. One has a bunch of items to stack you up. Another has a floormaster that gives you a small key when you kill it. The other has the boss key and two spike things that will try to crunch you. When they get close, use Din's Fire to get rid of it. Then grab your boss key, and enter to the room where the ship sank. Look across the water to spot a statue surrounded by bomb flowers. Shoot one of them with an arrow, and the statue will fall, forming a bridge. Use the bridge to get to the other side and unlock the door. Equip your hover boots and lens of truth to spot platforms. Run from one to the other, until you reach the boss door. Make sure you are wearing your hover boots! Check out the boss section for help on this fight. Afterwards, grab your heart, and step into the light to meet the Shadow Sage, Impa, and be rewarded with the Shadow Medallion! **************************************************** i) Spirit Medallion **************************************************** ***Hyrule Field*** After obtaining the Shadow Medallion, hop on Epona and head over to Gerudo Valley. It's the Western part of Hyrule Field, past Lon Lon Ranch and kind of near Lake Hylia. ***Gerudo Valley*** You'll need to speed Epona up to hop across the gap due to the bridge being down. Or, you can pull yourself over by using the longshot and hitting the sign on the other side. Go talk to the carpenter and he'll say that his four carpenters hated working and they went to Gerudo Fortress. Ok. Head straight and you'll be there. ***Gerudo Fortress*** Purposely run up and get caught by a Gerudo guard. You'll be thrown in some kind of prison thing. Use your longshot to pull yourself off with the board near the exit. While standing on the edge, peg some of the guards with arrows. Then drop down to the bottom and enter the door to the left. Talk to the man in the cell, and he'll tell you that he and his 3 buddies were locked up here, and that you'll be rewarded if you free all 3 of them. Then a Gerudo Guard will pop out and you'll have to fight her. She has two swords but she's pretty easy. If she hits you a few times you'll be put in that isolated hole again. After killing her, she'll drop a small key. Use it to free the carpenter and talk to him. Then exit through the other door. Go left into the passage, then go right, and be cautious of a guard. Run down the hall and turn as soon as you can, ans peg the guard here with an arrow. Go through the door here to find another locked up carpenter, and fight the Gerudo Guard for another key to unlock the carpenter. Don't forget to talk to him before leaving. Now continue going the same way. Use the vines here to climb down and enter the door. Using the same style, rescue this carpenter. Three down, one to go. Climb up the vines and go in the door to the left. Be careful, there are two guards here. Peg them both with arrows. In the next hall is another guard. Take her out as well. Go straight ahead and out the door. Drop down to the right and enter the door. Kill the guard here with an arrow just like all the others. Go through there and save the final carpenter. Afterwards, a lady will come and give you a Gerudo membership card because she recognized your good skill. Now you can't be caught by the guards! Exit and find the gate at the end of the Fortress. Climb up the ladder, and they will open the gate for you. Enter the Haunted Wasteland. ***Haunted Wasteland*** Equip your hover boots and run across while following the flags. It's tough with all the sand blowing and everything, but you'll get the hang of it. Playing the Sun's Song if it is night is a great idea so you can recognize the flags better. You'll come to a building. Use your lens of truth to spot a poe. Follow her and she'll lead you to the entrance to the Spirit Temple. Walk near the entrance to meet Sheik and she'll teach you the Requim of Spirit. Now, you'll have to do this as a kid and an adult, so play the Prelude of Light, and put back the Master Swords, then play your newly learned song and enter the Spirit Temple as young Link. ***Spirit Temple (Young Link)*** Run up the stairs and go to the left and talk to Nabooru. She'll tell you to retrieve the silver gauntlets because you can fit in the hole and she can't. Crawl through. Kill the keese and Armos in here and enter the door to the left. You'll have to fight a stalfos here. A good idea is to keep swigning your sword at him until he falls down the hole. Then kill the skull with the slingshot. Hit the diamond across the gap with the boomerang to form a bridge. Cross it and enter the door. Use Din's Fire in here to quickly wipe out the enemies, and go through the door. You have to collect all the silver rupees here. E-A-S-Y. Then a cage will fall for you to climb up. Light the two torches here and grab the key from the chest that falls. Go through the door and you'll be back in the second room. Go in the hole against the wall here and unlock the door. Kill the skulltulas on the wall here and climb on up. Kill all the enemies in here and hit the diamond for 10 bombchus. Aim the bombchu at the boulder on the wall and let it go. If it hits, the light will hit the sun statue on the wall, and exit through the door that opens up. Push over the statue in here onto the switch to open the door. Go up the stairs and through the door. Collect the silver rupees in here to light one of the torches. Then light the rest of them for a small key. Then push the block with the face on it into the light so the door appears. Use your key to open it. Defeat the Iron Knuckle in here by hitting it with your sword when it raises its guard. He's easy to kill but if he connects with that ax on your body it's a big loss. Enter the door that opens and open the chest for the silver gauntlets! Now you'll see a cinema of two bitches, oops, I mean witches, capturing Nabooru. Play the Prelude of Light, become an adult again, and return to the Spirit Temple as an adult. ***Spirit Temple (Adult Link)*** Run up the stairs and turn right. Lift that stone now that you can with the silver gauntlets! Hit the diamond on the ceiling with the longshot and go through the door to the left. Kill the Wolfo and play Zelda's Lullaby on the Triforce symbol. You'll see a chest drop down. Hit the chest with the longshot to pull yourself over, and grab the compass from it. Now go back to the previous room and go through the other door. Get all the silver rupees in here to unlock the door. Enter it and kill the Like Like and grab your small key. Now go back into the room with the beamos and unlock the door. Kill the Like Like and climb the wall behind him. When you reach the top, put on the lens of truth and kill the floormaster. Now push the block so the light reflects off one of the sun faces. If you guess the correct one, the exit will be available. Run up the stairs here and you'll notice a statue in the room, with a Triforce symbol on its left hand. Using your hover boots, run to that hand and play Zelda's Lullaby. A chest will land on its right hand. Use it as a longshot target and open it up for a key. Jump off the statue and search for a longshot target that gets you to the correct path. Run up the stairs and open the door. Kill all the enemies here to unlock the door. This room is tricky. Hit one of the statues with your sword, and make it follow you so that it hits the switch. This will open the door, and you'll have a few seconds to get over there and open it up. Run up the stairs, and use the same technique as before to kill the Iron Knuckle. As a result, you get the Mirror Shield! This thing is extremely powerful, and reflects light and other substances back in the other direction. Works kind of like a mirror... What a surprise! Go back to the room with the statue, and use the mirror shield to bounce the light onto the sun face. Enter the door and grab a key, and use it on the door in the room before this. Get rid of the beamos in this room, and use the longshot to pull yourself up to the wall. Stand on the Triforce Symbol and play Zelda's Lullaby, then enter the next room. Kill the door to the left of the flame-covered chest and hit the eye with an arrow. Use the longshot target to pull yourself up and melt the flame with the ice block. Open the chest for the boss key. Now leave this room, and go to the end of the hallway and open the door. Walk up to the bars and do a spin attack and the diamond will be hit. It will open up a door. Enter the door and kill all the enemies. Now find the statue. Bomb the rock there and kill the enemies in this room. Push the statue so the light goes through the bars, then go back to the first one, and reflect it off the far one near the diamond. Now return to the room where you hit the diamond behind the bars. Now use this light to reflect it off the sun face and you'll drop down on an elevator. The light will still be on the ground, so reflect that onto the face of the statue and the boss door will appear. In the boss room will be an Iron Knuckle. After you defeat it, you'll find out that it was Nabooru who was brainwashed by thw witches! After the cinema, enter the door and climb up to the platform, and be ready to fight the boss(es!). Check out the boss section on how to win this fight. Afterwards, you get the normal, a heart and a blue light. You'll get the Spirit Medallion from the Spirit Sage, Nabooru! Now that you have all 6 medallion, play the Prelude of Light to meet Sheik. Sheik will un mask herself. Go to the character section of this to find out who it really is! She'll give you the incredibly powerful Light Arrows, then she'll be captured by the King of Evil, Ganondorf. He'll tell you to come to his castle if you want her back........

Watch out, 1 heart is deducted for every blow. Armos - Found in Dodngo's Cavern and the Spirit Temple, this statue bounces around and charges out you. Sneak up behind it and slash it with your sword or time it with a bomb. B> Bari - Found in Jabu Jabu's Belly, this thing is simply a jellyfish. Use a deku stick, or for an easier kill, the boomerang. Don't touch it or it will electrocute you! Beamos - Found in Dodongo's Cavern, the Shadow Temple, the Spirit Temple, and Ganon's Castle. Watch out, because this thing has a a searching eye and whn it sees you, it will shoot off a laser at you. What's even worse is that the only way you can kill it is with a bomb. So keep distance, Z-Target and let that bomb fly! Biri - Found in Jabu Jabu's Belly, this is the same exact thing as the Bari only less dangerous. Kill it easily with the boomerang, and keep your sword away from it. Blue Bubble - Found in the Forest Temple, Z-target this easy opponent and run into it with your shield to put its flame out, then hack away with your sword. You can also extinguish the flame with the hookshot. Blue Tektite - Located at Lake Hylia and the Water Temple, this blue spider like creature that was in the original Zelda game is extremely easy to kill. You can stun it with the hookshot, slash it with your sword, or peg it with an arrow. One hit with the Biggoron's Sword. Business Scrub - Found in the early stages of the game such as the Lost Woods and almost every ungeon, this is the same thing as a deku scrub only it stands up on its long legs. C>None Found. D>Deku Scrub - Located in Kokiri Forest, and the Deku Tree Dungeon, Z-target thesew bush like enemies, and press R to use your shield to bounce the deku nut they shoot at you back at them. Dinolfo - Found at the end of Ganon's Castle, this powerful, cinning, bouncy enemies moves around a lot and has a powerful swing with its sword. You'll have to block their attack with your shield and quickly slash them from behind to injure them. Lunging is a good idea for a quick comeback. Dodongo - Located in Dodongo's Cavern, this is a small version of King Dodongo himself. They move slow, but they'll breathe fire out at you. Walk in front of one so it stops and shoots fire out, then go and slash the tail to defeat. Oh yeah, and get away from it after it's dead because it blows up! Dodongo Larva - These little creatures are also found in Dodongo's Cavern and are miniature Dodongo's. Just don't touch them, hit them with your sword and move when they're dead because these, too, will explode. E>None Found. F>Fake Chest - Watch out for these found in the Spirit Temple and Ganon's Castle. When you open them, an enemy or a way that causes injury will pop out! There's not a whole lot you can do about it, either, just be cautious. Fake Door - Found only in the Fire Temple, when you go to open a fake door, it lands on you! Ouch! All you can do is bomb it to make sure it isn't leading to a fake passage, or just let it be. Fake Pot - Located in the Shadow Temple, these things will fly up in the air and nail you for a loss. Smack it with your sword and teach it a little lesson. The good part is, however, if you get hit, a heart usually come out of it. Floor Master - Located in the Forest Temple and the Shadow Temple, these giant hands roam the floor and crash into you. The bad part is that if you kill it with the sword, the pieces are still alive and you'll have to defeat those, too. Freezard - Found in the Ice Cavern, staying away from these things is a good idea. They'll shoot ice out of their mouth, and if it hits you, you'll be caught inside the ice and won't be able to breath! The best strategy is to keep distance until it blows the ice out, and immediately after, run up and hack away at it with your sword. G> Gerudo Guard - Located in Gerudo Fortress, this lady carries two swords and knows how to use them! Keep hacking away and fighting her off, and throw in some lunges to throw her off. Ghoma Larva - Found only Inside the Deku Tree, these are babies af the Deku Tree boss. You'll have to keep fighting off these annoying tiny pieces of larva as they'll keep coming at you. Gibdo - Located in the Graveyard, various secret areas, the Bottom of the Well, the Shadow Temple, and Ganon's Castle, these things are scary but are easy opponents. Use your hookshot to stun it and pull yourself over to it, and when it's stunned, two hits with the Biggoron's Sword takes care of it. Giant Moblin - There's only one of these in the entire game, and he's in the back of the Sacred Forest Meadow as an adult. He has a huge bat that shakes the ground. Run around the waves it sends off, or peg it three times with an arrow to kill it..... Don't forget to pick up the rupees it leaves behind because it's a good source of money. Golden Skulltula - See section gold skultullas for thier locations, these are easy little nice looking spiders where just about andy weapon kills them. Guay - Found at Lon Lon Ranch at night, Lake Hylia, and the Desrt Colossus, this is kind of like an evil bird that will fly around and follow you and pester you, then charge at you for a loss. The sword is a good approach, and a lot of other weapons kill it too. H>None Found. I> Ice Keese - This is a bat with blue stuff surrounding it, and if it hits you you'll be frozen in a block of ice and suffer a big loss. Found only in the Ice Cavern, you can hit this with your sword, but it's better to take them out with arrows before trying to perform a task in a room. Ice Wolfo - Found at the end of the Ice Cavern only, it's a white Wolfo that adjusts to ice. Very typical, easy enemy. And the reward for beating him is the iron boots! Iron Knuckle - Located in the Spirit Temple, this huge, fierce, dangerous enemy is set to destroy you. He is big and has armor, and carries an ax that he'll swing at you like he's trying to hit a homerun. Just let him swing. He's slow at swinging, so take advantage and run around and chop him from behind. Lunging is a good technique for a quick, harsh attack. J>None Found. K> Keese - Found in almost all dungeons and many secret grottos, this bat is sneaky and and pestering. Z-Target it and hit it with your arrow or slingshot, depending on how old you are. Don't let it bother you or your head will explode! Keep cool! L>Leever - Found in the Desert Colossus, this annoying enemy is tough to kill. It rides in the sand and tries to hit you. They come from all different directions, so even though you can kill them with your sword, it's a lot easier to avoid them. Like Like - Located in many Adult dungeons, this fat tub of goo will not injure you, he'll steal your equipment! He sucks you in and eats your equipment and he doesn't let it go until he's dead. Peg him twice with an arrow low into the body and he'll die. He's also a good hookshot target. Lizalfos - Found in Dodongo's Cavern, I guess you can call this thing a dinosaur with a sword and shield. They work together as they come in pairs, and you'll have to hit them when they move thier guard, or if you're quick, a lunge from behind. M> Mad Scrub - This thing is the same thing as a deku scrub, only it's red. Check out "Deku Scrub" for information on killing it. Moblin - Located in the Sacred Forest Meadow as an adult, this huge creature may look slow, but don't let that fool you. You can kill it with one peg of an arrow, otherwise, you'll have to run by it without it seeing you. If you get in it's line of sight, he'll use his spear to send you 20 feet back! N>None Found. O>Octorok - Found in Zora's River, lake Hylia, and other water places, this enemy will pop out of the water and shoot something at you. Z-Target, and use your shield to bounce it back, just like it's a deku scrub. P>Parasitic Tentacle - These weiner looking objects are found only in Jabu Jabu's Belly, as you'll need the boomerang to kill them. Z-target, and move close, then when it's coming to hit you, throw the bomerang, and get out of the way. Peahat - Found in Hyrule Field, you can't kill these; all you can do is run away. They're quick and they have sharp blades surrounding the outside and they'll chase you and try to cut you up. Poe - Located in the Graveyard, the Haunted Wasteland, and of course, Hyrule Field as an adult, these are easy to kill; peg them with arrows, it'll be paralyzed for a second after the first hit, then peg it again to kill it. As a kid, follow it and use your shield, and when the time is right, chop it to pieces. Q>None Found. R> Red Bubble - Located in fire areas, this is the same thing as the blue bubble and green bubbles, only it has red around it, Remove the flame with your shield or the hookshot, then slash away. Red Tektite - Located as a kid at Death Mountain Trail, this tektite is the same as a blue tektite but likes warmer areas, I suppose. Slashing it with the sword breaks it up easily. Redead - Located in many secret grottos, almost all Adult dungeons, and Ganon's Castle, when you look at this thing you'll hear a scream and pause for a second. Use your hookshot to stun it and pull yourself over to it, and repeatedly slash it without giving it a chance to lock you in this sleeper like move. S>Shabom - Located in Jabu Jabu's Belly, this bubble may be the easiest enemy in the game. Almost everything takes it out, the boomerang is probably the quickest method along with a spinning sword move. Shell Blade - Located in the Water Temple, you can kill these whether you are underwater or above, because all it takes is a single shot with the hookshot. Z-target it and when it opens its mouth, let the hookshot go and it will die. Skulltula - Located in tons of places, mostly as a kid, this spider can be killled with almost any item. Very basic, simple enemy. Skullwalltula - Also in many dungeons, this is a skulltula that hangs out on vines, or walls you can climb. You'll have to Z-target them up high to kill them with almost any weapon, and if you're climbing up a wall and one sees you, it will turn purple, then charge at you and knock you right off! Spike - Found in the Water Temple, this is another enemy that is easy to kill under or above water. Just Z-target it when it's coming at you, and hit it with the hookshot so it dies down. Then hit it once more with the hookshot to kill it. Stalchild - Found only in Hyrule Field as a child at night, these baby stalfos take two hits with the Kokiri Sword to put out. Be careful though, because they come out in pairs and very frequently. Stalfos - Found all over the place in almost every dungeon, this enemy dates back all the way to the original Zelda game. It's a skeleton with a sword and shield that will put up a hell of a fight, jumping and slashing all over you. It is very big and very fierce, and you'll have to kill it by slashing it either after it missis you or after he goes for something to kill you. This enemy is tough and takes multiple hits, even with the Biggoron's Sword and other strong weapons in the game. Not to mention it has quick reflexes and will block most other weapons with its shield, leaving you only with the sword to kill it. Stinger - Located in Jabu Jabu's Belly and the Water Temple, these enemies usually come in groups. A spin attack with the sword would be good to wipe them all out, and most weapons kill them. As a kid, the boomerang or slingshot will do. T> Tailpasaran - Found in Jabu Jabu's Belly, these enemies aren't really worth your time, so stunning it with a deku nut would be good to get around it. Otherwise, lots of weapons kill it. Torch slug - Located in the Fire Temple, the Spirit Temple, and Ganon's Castle, this annoying enemy will chase you around with some fire. A few hits with the sword will take it out but I would just stun it with the hookshot so it leaves you alone. U>None Found. V>None Found. W>Wall Master - Found in the Forest Temple, Shadow Temple, and Ganon's Castle, I don't think you can really kill these things. They are giant hands that drop from the ceiling and drop you off back at the start of the dungeon! You'll see your shadow get big and you'll hear a noise menaing it is coming for you. If you get out of the way and see it, you can chop it a few times but it's not visible when it's back on the ceiling. The best strategy is to listen to Navi, and when she tells you to watch the shadows, be ready to run in the next room and be prepared. White Bubble - Found in the Spirit Temple, this is a skeleton head with no slame surrounding it. Hit it with your sword to easily kill it, and a number of methods stun it for you. Wolfos - Located in the Sacred Forest Meadow, the Forest Temple, Spirit Temple, Ganon's Castle, and the Ice Cavern (see Ice Wolfo) this is an angry wolf that will swing his paws at you. Use your shield to block the slap, then counter by slashing him with your sword. It'll take a few hits even with the Biggoron's Sword. X>None Found. Y>None Found. Z>None Found. B)Sub Bosses Here's how to kill those guys that aren't bosses, just tough opponents that block your way to the end! ===== #1 - Big Octo Found: Mid-Way through Jabu Jabu's Belly What To Do: E-A-S-Y. Z-target him always and stay away from the moving spike platform in the middle. Stun him with the boomerang, and when he spins around, hit him once more with it. If timed right, he'll be paralyzed for a few seconds with his back facing you, and a green thing shining where his ass should be. Slash it with your sword. Repeat this process until he dies. ===== #2 - Dead Hand Found: Bottom of Well, Shadow Temple What To Do: Purposely get caught by a hand and wait for him to come to you. When he reaches his head down, his hand will let go and you'll be free. Quickly smack him in the face with your sword. Very easy. Repeat this process about three or four times and he'll die. ===== #3 - Flare Dancer Found: Fire Temple (2x) What To Do: Yes, you have to fight this guy twice in the Fire Temple. He'll come out of a flame in the middle of the room and spin around. Z-target him and use your hookshot to pull out the little blackball in the middle. Chase this thing around and hack it as many times as you can with the sword. Keep doing this until he dies. If he gets away and sends the fire out before you snatch him, all you can do is run and try to avoid him. ===== #4 - Dark Link Found: Mid-Way Point of the Water Temple What To Do: I have no clue whatsoever on the big hype about this guy, because I think he is relatively easy. To see him, first run to the back of the room and then to the tree in the middle. You'll see yourself only you're gray. Z-target Dark Link and use Din's Fire. He'll get hurt, sink into the water, and re-appear behind you. For an easy approach, keep using Din's Fire. Or, you can just keep smacking swords with him and use lunges and stabs to beat him. He's real easy if you ask me. Afterwards, the room changes into an ordinary Water Temple room. Cool stuff. Oh yeah, and the longshot is in the next room! C)Bosses Sections: 1.

If you run out of bombs, grab a bomb flower from one of the corners. _________________________________________ 3. Bio-Electric Anemone: Barinade _________________________________________ Located: End of Jabu Jabu's Belly Required: Boomerang, Kokiri Sword Difficulty: (1-5) 2..... Not so hard, but it could take a while. Description: Big creature that spins electric jellyfish at you, shoots electricity at you, and runs you over. What To Do: Before fighting, remember to Z-Target, keep distance but don't be afraid to get close, and always move! Start out by Z-Targeting the tentacles that are connected to the ceiling. When you Z-Target them, be close and throw the boomerang at them. When they're destroyed, Barinade will come up with a wall of electric jellyfish that surround him and spin around him. Z-Target his body and hit it with the boomerang. Keep doing this. Everytime you stun him with your boomerang, a jellyfish disappears. He'll start shootin electricity at you. Keep your targetting on, but keep moving. When his jellyfish are gone, he'll be aggressive. He'll rise up and spin toward you. Stun the large circular body with the boomerang, then hack on him with your kokiri sword. Keep doing this until he is dead. _________________________________________ 4.

A fake carbon copy of Ganondorf. What To Do: The beginning of this fight is nothing like the final Ganon, but, the end is. You'll see him riding on his horse out of a picture. When he is almost out, and there is purple under him, shoot an arrow right into the purple. He'll be hit and he'll turn around. Do this two more times to draw him out and take out the horse. Now he'll come out and throw a ball of electricity at you. This is just like the Ganon you'll see at the end. Line yourself up with him and swing your sword at the electricity ball to hit it back at him. He might hit it back to you, and you'll have to keep hitting it back and forth until he is knocked down. When he's down, he'll fall and put his head down. Quickly run over and wham on him with your sword. Then he'll get up and start the electricity ball thing again. Use the same procedure until he's dead. Afterwards, you'll receive a little message from the real Ganondorf. _________________________________________ 5. Subterranean Lava Dragon: Volvagia _________________________________________ Located: End Of Fire Temple Required: Megaton Hammer Difficulty: (1-5) 2 Description: A snake like fire dragon that bumps into you, shoots fire at you and drops rocks at you. What To Do: Stay on the platform at all times and don't stand in a lava pit for a long time or you'll lose some life. When he appears from a pit, he'll shake his head around, then he'll just look at you. Z-Target him and hit him with your megaton hammer. Then he'll lay his head down...... Smash it with the hammer again! Repeat this process to kill him. About his attacks, when he comes out, run away from his fire, and don't touch him! When he throws down rocks at you, keep moving! _________________________________________ 6. Giant Aquatic Amoeba: Morpha _________________________________________ Located: End Of Water Temple Required: Din's Fire, Longshot, Sword Difficulty: (1-5) 3 Description: A tentacle of water with a small ball in it..... Watch out for that tentacle! What To Do: It's a good idea to get off the pillars and on the main platform around the wall. Morpha will come flying out of the water at you inside a tentacle of water. A good technique is Din's Fire because the tentacle will evaporate leaving behind Morpha. The other good way is to pull out the ball with your longshot and wham on him when he's out. Then, when he's almost dead he will form a second tentacle. Din's Fire is extremely good here. Watch out when he swings his tentacle though, it hurts! _________________________________________ 7. Phantom Shadow Beast: Bongo Bongo _________________________________________ Located: End Of Shadow Temple Required: Lens Of Truth, Bow and Arrows, Longshot Difficulty: (1-5) 4 Description: A huge eye with two hands that smack you around. What To Do: When going into the fight, leave your lens of truth on the entire time! You can't see the head without it. Stay on the platform at all times because when you get knocked off it, you suffer a big loss every second your out there. When its hands are far away, Z-target both hands so they're blue. If your lens of truth is on, which it should be, you'll see his head come racing toward you with a big eye sticking out. If you don't have the lens of truth on, you'll get knocked off every time and won't know why. When you see the eye, Z-target it to stun it, then slash it with your sword. Repeat the process until he dies. _________________________________________ 8. Sorceress Sisters: Twinrova _________________________________________ Located: End Of Shadow Temple Required: Mirror Shield, Sword Difficulty: (1-5) 2 Description: Two witches that fly around where one shoots ice at you and the other shoots fire. What To Do: You have to fight 2 witches at the same time. One shoots ice, one shoots fire. Pull out your mirror shield and bounce the fire to the ice witch and the ice to the fire witch. When they get hit a few times, they'll join together and shoot this huge thing at you. Block it 4 times with your mirror shield and your mirror shield will send off some kind of charge and hit the witch. Wham on her now, and she'll die. Or, if she stays alive, repeat the process. _________________________________________ 9. Great King Of Evil: Ganondorf _________________________________________ Located: End Of Ganon's Castle Required: Sword, Light Arrows Difficulty: (1-5) 3 Description: Same as the Phantom Ganon, only, this guy is for real! What To Do: He'll start off by making a platform that he floats above while you'll be on the main ledge. Pull out your sword, and hit the electricity ball back at him. He'll hit it back and you'll play ball again. Peg him with a light arrow after he gets stunned, and he'll fall. This is your chance to go nail on him! However, you don't need the hover boots! You can make the jump without anything, or you can use the longshot to get over there. Slash him with the sword until he re-groups and floats again, and he'll repeat the process. Then he'll get really mad and make this huge ball of stuff, using all his powers. When you see this, hold down B so your sword lights up, and when it's about to hit you, let go, and you'll send it back to Ganon and injure him DEEPLY! Repeat the process until he's dead. _________________________________________ 10. Ganon _________________________________________ Located: The Exit Of Ganon's Castle Required: Light Arrows, Sword or Megaton Hammer. Difficulty: (1-5) 4 Description: A huge dragon-like creature that Ganon has turned into.... Very ferocious. What To Do: This guy is tough because you'll need lots of magic power for him because the only arrows that hurt him are lught arrows. In the beginning of the fight, he'll knock away your Master Sword. Pull out the Big Gorons sword, or, if you don't have that, the megaton hammer. When he moves his hand from his face, Z-target and nail him with a light arrow. He'll pause for about 5 seconds, so hurry up, roll under his legs, and hit his tail with your Big Gorons sword or megaton hammer. Repeat this process about 10 times, and Zelda will hold him off and toss you the Master Sword. Defeat him with one more slash with the sacred sword. Freqeuntly Asked Questions Here is some extra stuff that a lot of people frequently ask me. So, since a lot of this stuff isn't in the walkthrough or another section, I put it together in this FAQ. ===== Q: How do I keep the Giant's Knife from breaking? A: You can't. Don't buy it, it's a waste of money. ===== Q: Why do I hear a com mooing and I'm on the ground? A: In a few places, a cow is hidden under the ground! The purpose for this, is that you can bomb the ground, drop in, and play Epona's Song for it and get some free Lon Lon Milk from it. You need a bottle, though. ===== Q: In the Royal Family's Tomb, how do I get past the first room? A: Kill all the keese, including the tough one to find.... He'll be by the entrance. ===== Q: Can I neat the runner? A: No. No matter how fast or slow you go, he'll always beat you by one second. ===== Q: How do I open Jabu Jabu's mouth? A: Catch a fish in a bottle and throw the fish in his mouth. ===== Q: Where's the boss in the Forest Temple? A: Take the elevator type thing down and push the walls around! Eventually, you will free a switch that allows you into the boss room. ===== Q: In the Gerudo Training Grounds, I have all the keys and I'm in the room with all the locked doors to get to the ice arrows. What order do I go? A: Take a left, then climb up the fence in there and use your lens of truth to find a passage at the top with a key. Then keep moving forward until you get to them. ===== Q: I read the gold skulltula locations part but they're not there, and.... A: Some only come out at night. ===== Q: Which Big Goron do I get the Biggorons sword from? A: The one on top of the mountain, not the one in Goron City. ===== Q: How do I enter the Shadow Temple? A: Light all the torches. Din's Fire lights them all at once. ===== Q: I'm in Ganon's Castle and I'm shooting the sages ball to destroy the barrier. How come nothing happens when I hit it with an arrow? A: It MUST be a light arrow! A lot in this castle will require light arrows for extra power. ===== Q: Where are the golden gauntlets? A: In the Shadow Barrier of Ganon's Castle. See the walkthrough. ===== Q: Is the treasure chest game impossible without the kens of truth? A: No. The lens of truth will allow you to easily win it, but believe it or not, I went in there for about the fifth time, and chose the first chest correctly. It was the one on the right. Then every other one was left, right, left, right. It's a pattern. However, I still suggest using the lens of truth so you don't waste money. ===== Q: Where is the Golden Scale? A: You'll have to get it from the owner of the fishing pond. Catch a 10+ pound fish as an adult and he'll hand it over. ===== Q: What's the difference between the golden scale and silver scale? A: The silver scale allows you to dive for 5 seconds, while the golden scale allows you to dive for 8 seconds. Not much, but the golden scale is required for a heart piece. ===== Q: If I get every upgrade, what will I be able to hold? A: Deku Seeds: 50 Deku Nuts: 40 Arrows: 50 Bombs: 40 Deku Sticks: 30 Rupees: 500 ===== Q: Damn, my arrow won't work here! A: Try a light arrow. ===== Q: When in Ganon's Castle, how do I know which barrier is which? A: You have to look at the light above the door that is feeding the main chamber. For instance, if you see green above the door, it is the Forest Barrier because the Forest Medallion is green. Just press pause and kepe in mind the colors of the medallions. ===== Q: Why is Navi green? A: If Navi turns green, there is something significant about that area. It usually hints an enemy, or a longshot target on a high platform. ===== Q: Is there a gold edition of Zelda 64? A: Yes, but you can't get it anymore; it was only available if you pre ordered it a while ago. ===== Q: Man , I have the regular Zelda 64 edition, guess there's no extra dungeons, huh? A: Wrong! The only difference between the gold edition and standard edition is the color of the box, and the color of the cartridge. Oh yeah, and the gold edition is worth more because it was sold in limited quantities. ===== Q: Are there any codes for the game? A: There are tons of secrets and it's gameshark compatible, but no, there's nothing where you can pause the game and hit certain buttons to access cheats or other playing features. ===== Q: In Nintendo Power, it says there's a heart piece on top of a house in Kokiri Forest near the entrance to the Lost Woods. Where is it? A: Apparently, Nintendo Power relaesed this guide in the early stages of the games' creation, and the heart piece was moved. I think they moved it to the jam session game in the Lost Woods. ===== Q: What's that number on the select file screen? A: It's the number of how many times the Game Over screen has appeared in that particular file. ===== Q: Can you fight a boss twice? A: No. You can go back in dungeons to get gold skulltulas and other things, but when you re-enter the boss room, all that will be there is the blue light. Oh, but you can fight the two Ganon's at the end of the game as many times as you want...... Keep going up to him. ===== Q: I have a rumble pak, and I have the stone of agony. Sometimes my rumble pak shakes, and I bomb that spot away for hours, only to find nothing. What's going on here? A: A couple things could be wrong here: 1) Your rumble pak is broke. 2) The secret has nothing to do with bombing (it could mean to roll into a tree, smash something with the megaton hammer, etc.). 3) The shake is naturally occuring from the rumble pak - sometimes it shakes not because of what's happening in the game. ===== Q: Ofcourse if you could get the triforce I bet Nintendo wouldn't say if you could. I haven't dropped the triforce subject completely yet. ...Maybe its a super secret?... and..I noticed something...there are 3 types of ghosts in the Poe Shop....you can only get 2, Poe the ghost and Big Poe Maybe there are another Poe...like Great poe?... just imagine... I think the game consists of more secrets than you can imagine. Why should nintendo release the secrets now..it's only been a year since the release date...... - Sacred Truth A: I still highly doubt it. Do you know how many people own Zelda? Millions, and yet nobody has found it yet. If it was a secret it would be leaked or discovered by now. The game has been out for almost a year. I think another kind of the Poe would also be discovered by now, but that's a little bit more logical than the Triforce rumor. ===== Q: I want to thank you for your walkthrough guide. You saved me many frustrated gaming hours. I thought I should mention a couple of things. First, you mentioned that you found fanore's wind useless. I actually find it quite helpful. There are many dungeons where you get almost to the end, and you have to stop playing (to go to work, sleep etc...) casting fanore's wind allows you to return to the place you left off when you continue later. Instead of having to go through obsticles you've already been through. Second, I don't know if you noticed that casting din's fire near a gossip stone causes it to spin for a few seconds and the suddenly stretch until it's taller than Link. Anyway thanks again. A: Farore's Wind is prohibitted to be used in some dungeons - the longer and harder ones, at least. But thanks for the input anyway. I think I put the Din's Fire/Gossip Stone thing somewhere in this FAQ... Thanks for the mail. ===== Q: I checked out your walkthrough on GameFAQs and just thought I'd tell ya it's very well laid out and easy to follow. You did a good job on it. BTW notice how some of the characters in the game have the same name as some of the towns in Zelda 2: Adventure of Link? Mainly Rauro, Ruto, Saria, Mido, and Darunia? Well... actually only... Well, good job on the walkthrough. I only read it as far as I've played to find out if there's something I might have missed or another way of doing something in a stage I've already completed. A: Actually, I didn't notice that... Thanks for that info!

Here are the strategies to beat them, because the prizes are often good, such as weapon upgrades and other goodies! #1 - Fishing ============ Please see the fishing section for a complete guide. #2 - Bombchu Bowling ==================== Found in the Market as young Link, you'll need 30 rupees and good skill for this game. You'll be given 10 bombchus, and you'll have to aim them so that they hit the center of the wall every time. But the tricky part is that you will have to do it three times, where the distances get longer and different objects block your way, and you're only given 10 bombchus. Use them wisely for great prizes such as a heart piece, and a big bomb bag. #3 - Horse Archery ================== After freeing all 4 carpenters during your quest for the Spirit Medallion, head over to the left and go up the hill. Play the game up there for 29 rupees. You'll ride Epona and you'll have to hit the bulls-eye targets and other items. The best strategy is to hit the pots on your first sequence, then hit the bulls-eye at the end when you turn, then on the way back fire at the bulls-eye and hit the one at the end. 1000 points earns you a heart piece, and 1500 points earns you the largets arrow quiver! #4 - The Diving Game ==================== Found in Zora's Domain as a kid, beating this game is required to move forward in the game. Go to the top of the Domain near King Zora, and enter the tunnel to the left. Talk to the Zora and play the diving game. She'll throw silver rupees in the water and give you 1 minute to collect them all. Dive off the watefall and collect them all. It's very easy because they'll be in the same area. After collecting them all in the time given, go talk to the Zora again, and claim your prize: The Silver Scale, which allows you to dive for 5 seconds. #5 - Archery ============ Found in the market as a kid, and Kakariko Village as an adult, you'll use your slingshot as a kid and bow as an adult. You'll have to step up and hit all the rupees that pass by. They're all easy until the two red ones come across the top. Hit the first one, and immediately shoot in the same place to hit the other. Great prizes come out of this game too, such as weapon upgrades and purple rupees. #6 - Defeating Ingo =================== In order to get Epona (see side quests) you'll have to race Mr. Ingo twice! Both times, just hug the fence so that you take the shorter path. Use all of your carrots except for the last one, and every time the second carrot comes back, use it. If you use all your carrots up, you'll go really slow and lose. He doesn't get harder the second time around, so keep calm and use the strategy twice. #7 - Epona Obstacle Course ========================== After obtaining Epona, go back to Lon Lon Ranch and play Malon's game. You'll have to break the record of 50 seconds set by Malon herself. Don't waste carrots on the first few gates, only the higher ones! Never use that last carrot unless you're about to finish! Your prize is that Malon sends a cow to your house (play Epona's Song for it for free Lon Lon Milk). It's not a great prize, but the game is absolutely free! New strategy: Immediately, after starting, use all but the last carrot on the first two gates. Then, hop over the small gates without using carrots as the used carrots return. Then use them to hop over the 3 consecutive ones, and the one at the end. Do this same process the second time around and see if you can beat my record - 48 seconds. #8 - Treaure Chest Game ======================= Found in the Market as young Link and only open at night, the lens of truth will be helpful here. If you happen to choose the correct chest your first time, just go to the opposite side in the next room. Keep doing this as a heart piece awaits you at the end. You can cheat with the lens of truth to easily get you through it. After you beat it for the heart piece, you can go back in but the main prize will always be a puple rupee. #9 - Racing Dampe ================= After becoming an adult, go to the graveyard, and go to the left on the hill and pull out the tomb there. Drop in, and you'll meet a ghost named Dampe. He was the guy that owned the Graveyard and worked at it and everything. If you've read his diary, you'll know he has a treasure that he keeps. Race him and stay with him to the end. He'll drop fire at you but it's easy to avoid and you'll just follow every turn he makes. You don't have to defeat him, you just have to stay with him until the end, and a treasure chest will await you with the hookshot in it! I believe the worst time you can have while still staying with him is 1:12, but I'm not sure. Places Kokiri Forest Lost Woods Goron City Death Mountian Kakariko Village Hyrule Field Zoras River Zoras Domain Hyrule Castle/Town Gerudo Fortress Haunted Wasteland Lake Hylia Secerts *************************** a) Secret Areas *************************** If I were to sit here and name every secret grotto in Zelda 64, I would never again leave my computer. However, here's a few things: - If you see something unusual such as a lonely tree or a weird pattern on the ground, roll into it or bomb it. Do anything you can to see if it hides something. - If you have a rumble pak, the Stone of Agony will come in handy. You get the Stone of Agony as a prize after killing 20 skulltulas and entering the House of Skulltula. With the Stone of Agony, your rumble pak will shake whenever you are near a secret. - Here's a few areas to get you started: - In Hyrule Field near Lake Hylia. - By the potion shop in Kakriko Village. - Under rocks in the Lost Woods (use bombs). - It really can be a never-ending list. *************************** b) Cheats/Tricks *************************** 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. Finding Saria To find Saria, go to the Lost Woods and move in the following directions: Right, Left, Right, Left, Center, Left, Right. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. Getting 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 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. Unlimited money Go to the Lost Woods and find the Skull Kid who is alone as adult Link. Then, lock onto and kill him, and he will give you 200 rupees. Enter a door, return, and repeat the process to collect an unlimited amount of money. Money from trees Run at a tree as young Link and press A to roll and slam into it. Then, a skulltula or some rupees will usually fall out. Breaking 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 the pots. 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. 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." 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. Free 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. Ocarina flats and sharps Hold R and press one of the Ocarina playing buttons to make a sharp note, or Z to make a flat. Fix a broken sign After slashing a sign and breaking it, play Zelda's Lullaby while standing in front of the pieces. Chicken attack As in previous games in the series, if Link approaches a chicken and hurts it in some way, it will call for others to attack. The attack can be stopped by entering a door or leaving the area. Kill the Rolling Goron To kill the giant rolling Goron in Goron City, bomb him around ten times. After the ninth bombing, he will grunt and the other Goron's will run out to kill you. Gossip Stone blast off Drop a bomb near a Gossip Stone to have it blast off into space. Stretch a Gossip Stone Hit a Gossip Stone with the hammer. Before opening the Door Of Time After collecting the 3 Spiritual Stones, Navi will urge Link to go to the castle. Before doing so, try to collect all the hearts and the Gold Skulltula tokens and get the master sword. Ganondorf will take the Triforce and turn Link into a adult making half the heart pieces and Gold Skulltulas inaccessible. Free Fairies Play Zelda's Lullaby in front of a Gossip Stone and they will give you a free Fairy. Play the Song of Storms in front of a Gossip Stone and it will give you a Big Fairy. Get a butterfly to land on a Deku stick and it will turn into a Fairy. Slowly walk towards the butterfly with a Deku Stick out; this requires patience. Play the Song of Storms near a soft patch of soil with a Magic Bean planted. It will grow and produce three regular Fairies. 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. 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. Ending bonus Successfully complete the game and wait at the "The End" screen. Eventually, the Scarecrow's Song will begin playing with different instruments. Frozen Zora's Domain Zora's Domain will be frozen when playing as an adult. There is no way to thaw it. *************************** c) Oddities *************************** 1.) As adult after you have gotten the longshot, go on the roof where you get the heart piece in Kakariko Village. Look at the windmill, and you'll see a hole with a wooden peg in the middle. Hit the peg with your longshot and explore. There will be some stairs and a chicken. I've tried everything, but I have come to the conclusion that it is a Miyamoto oddity. 2.) When you get the iron boots in the Ice Cavern, Sheik will tell you that Zora's Domain is frozen over due to the boss in the Water Temple. You are told that you must defeat the Water Temple to save the Zoras, but after you beat the Water Temple, Zoras Domain is still frozen over. Go figure. 3.) You don't get the triforce at the end of the game...... Sequel time. 4.) When you meet Princess Zelda as a kid, look in the windows on the side, and you'll see pictures of familiar characters from Mario. 5.) Did you notice that the poes make the same exact sound as the ghosts in Mario? And the ghosts in the Forest Temple also make the sound. 6.) If you peg Epona with an arrow, she gets upset. 7.) You can chop up a square sign with your sword, a spinning attack chops it all up, and playing Zelda's Lullaby in front of it repairs it. 8.) The Stalchilds only come after you as a child? Why is that? 9.) What are those gossip stones for? Play Zelda's Lullaby for them and you get a fairy, put a bomb in front of them, and they'll explode and rocket off into the sky, and talk to them while wearing the mask of truth and they will reveal secrets to you. 10.) If you beat Malon's obstacle course in less then 50 seconds, a cow will be at your house. 11.) Walk up to a cow and play Epona's Song for it. If you have an empty bottle, you'll get free Lon Lon Milk! 12.) Find a chicken running around and slice it with your sword three times and the camera will put a close up on the chicken's face. He'll start doing some call, and all these chickens will come to his aid, and if you bump into one, you'll lose some life. You can avoid it by exiting the level, or going on Epona.

Gold Skulltullas 100 Gold Skulltula Locations --------------------------------- For every 10 skulltulas you kill, go to the House of Skulltula in Kakariko Village and they will give you a great prize. The ones in dungeons can always be found, but the ones out in the open only come out at night! Oh, and if you've already defeated a dungeon you may go back in to pick up the token. 10....................Adult Wallet 20....................Stone of Agony 30....................Giant Wallet 40....................Bombchus 50....................Heart Piece 100...................Gold Rupee ======================================== - - - KOKIRI FOREST - - - Child Link: 1 - Use a Bottled Bug on the soft soil spot that is behind the Shop, one will pop out. 2 - It's on the back of the Know It All Brother's House, you don't need anything special, I think... Adult Link: 3 - On the back of the House of Twin's, look up high. You'll need the Hookshot to pick up the token. - - - HYRULE FIELD - - - Any Link: 4 - In front of the entrance to Kakariko Village, there is a lonely tree, near Hyrule Castle. Blow it up and go into the hole that appears. You'll need the Hookshot/Boomerang to collect it, though. 5 - In front of the entrance to Gerudo's Valley is a large rock with a circle of stones around it. Use the Megaton Hammer to blow away the rock, then drop the hole. Get rid of the web with Din's Fire or a Fire Arrow, then get the token (behind the cow). - - - HYRULE MARKET - - - Child Link: 6 - In the first area (coming from Hyrule Field) is a house with a ton of pots, some crates, and a guard. Roll into the crates nearest the guard and one of them will contain this Skulltula. - - - HYRULE CASTLE - - - 7 - Play the Song of Storms in front of the tree, the one near where you woke up Talon. Go in the hole, there you go! 8 - When you first enter the area (coming from the Market, where else?) there is a tree RIGHT there, roll into it and a Skulltula will fall out. - - - GANON'S CASTLE - - - Adult Link: 9 - You've probably spotted the arch, the one that the guard (as young Link) used to be. Well, go behind it, then look at it from where you got Din's Fire/Double Defense. Lo and behold! - - - LON LON RANCH - - - Child Link: 10 - The house on the left of where you enter, look up and there will be one on the window up there. Requires Boomerang. 11 - This one is pretty simple...Look on the wall near the shack with the cows (where you got a Heart Piece - hopefully). Requires the Boomerang. 12 - On the fence, the one that keeps the horses in, is a large wooden structure. Look on that. 13 - There is only one tree in this area...roll into it (it's past the houses and before the horse corral). - - - KAKARIKO VILLAGE - - - Child Link: 14 - There is a tower near the entrance to the Death Mountain trail, it's on the ladder. 15 - In the graveyard, on the wall, requires Boomerang. The wall that Dampe's house is on, that is. 16 - In the center of town is a construction area (it will eventually become the Archery Mini-Game building). Look on the back of the bricks. 17 - On the outside of the Skulltula house 18 - Coming from Hyrule Field, roll into the tree that is straight ahead, a Golden Skulltula will pop out. You know, the one where the Boss Carpenter/Weird Guy sits against. 19 - On the side of a house, near the entrance to Death Mountain. hen you try to open the door, a note reads something about someone's son not being able to play...? 20 - In the graveyard is a plot of soft soil, let some bottled bugs loose and watch it pop out! Adult Link: 21 - On top of Impa's house (the one with a cow and a Heart Piece inside; overlooks the chicken pen). Requires Longshot. - - - LOST WOODS - - - Child Link: 22 - In the area that has a bridge (the one from Kokiri Forest to Hyrule Field) is a soft soil spot, use some bottled bugs. 23 - Another area, with two Deku Scrubs, has some soft soil. Use a buggy! Adult Link: 24 - In the soft soil location with two scrubs, use the bean platform to find a ledge with this spider. 25 - In the Sacred Forest Meadow, on the wall, you'll probably hear it beoifre you actually see it (it's not a very tough one!). You need the Hookshot to recover the token it drops. - - - DEATH MOUNTAIN - - - Child Link: 26 - Coming from Kakariko Village, you've probably noticed an area of the all (right side) looks like a drum skin. Come back with your bombs and blow it up to find a secret aclove with a you-know-what. You need the Boomerang to collect the token. 27 - Soft soil location at the mouth of Dodongo's Cavern...you need to use a bottled bug, you drooling retard! Adult Link: 28 - In the last stretch before the climbable wall (which leads to the summit) are a lot of boulders...smash them with the Megaton Hammer, one is covering up a Skulltula! The strange thing is, it HAS to be nighttime for this to work! Strange... 29 - Remember how you opened up Dodongo's Cavern? Go to where you threw the bomb off the ledge and there will be a rock there, smash it with the Megaton Hammer and a spider will be under it. Same as above. - - - DEATH MOUNTAIN CRATER - - - Child Link: 30 - Coming from the summit of Death Mountain, roll into the crate near the entrance. 31 - Near the Fire Temple is a plot of soft soil, use a bug (for this one, you'll need to play the Bolero of Fire, since you can't cross the gaps in the bridge without the Hookshot). - - - GORON CITY - - - Child Link: 32 - After collecting the bombs, you can blow away the rocks on the upper-most floor. Behind it is a rock maze of sorts. At the end, besides two Purple Rupees, is a crate. Roll into it, or bomb it, and voila! Skulltula! Either Link: 33 - On the center platform, suspended in mid-air by rope, it's on the outside (requires Hookshot as adult, Boomerang and Slingshot as young). - - - ZORA'S RIVER - - - Child Link: 34 - In front of the entrance to Zora's Domain is a series of platforms. Have you ever gone down there? You've probably said to yourself "If I go don there, I will be swept away by the currents!" *buzz* Oh, I'm afraid that as the INCORRECT answer. Actually, down there, on a ladder, is a Skulltula...along with a few Rupees... 35 - Roll into the one and only tree at the entrance and a Skulltula will magically pop out! Adult Link: 36 - In the area here you got the first Heart Container Piece (it has two holes, one is a Fairy Fountain, the other has a single chest and a Gossip Stone). This one is on the wall nearest the hole that is NOT the Fairy Fountain. Requires Hookshot. 37 - Get on the magic bean platform and at the very end it will drop you off at a wooden bridge. Note that you do not actually need to have planted the magic bean for this, it's just a reference. You know, the wooden bridge shortly before the entrance to Zora's Domain? Anyways, after stepping foot on earth, turn left and look up high on the all. Requires Hookshot. - - - ZORA'S DOMAIN - - - Adult Link: 38 - At the very top of the frozen waterfall, on the wall. You need to actually get up there where the Zora Mini-Game Salesperson (I'm just making this up as I go along, if you haven't noticed ;)) and blam it, since even the Longshot can't reach it from below. Even when at the top, you need the Hookshot to collect the token it leaves behind. - - - ZORA'S FOUNTAIN - - - Child Link: 39 - You know the log in the water? It seems to serve no purpose...but it does! Get on it and follow it to the end to find a Golden Skulltula on a wall. 40 - On the island behind Lord Jabu-Jabu (the one where you picked up Farore's Wind) is a tree...roll into it. Adult Link: 41 - On the island here you picked up Farore's wind is a large, gray boulder. After acquiring the Silver Gauntlets you can pick this up; guess what's under it. - - - LAKE HYLIA - - - Child Link: 42 - You know the little island where the Fire Arrows dropped down? The Skulltula you are seeking is on one of them. 43 - Soft soil location in front of the science lab (if you're confused what to do - CONGRATULATIONS! You, sir/madam, or mentally handicapped! Try not to stick a fork in an electrical outlet). 44 - On the back of the science lab, you need to be on the bridge to see it. Requires the Boomerang to get the token it drops. Adult Link: 45 - In the science lab is a pool of water. Use the Iron Boots to sink down there, then roll into the crate at the bottom. Ta daaa! 46 - Next to the Triforce Symbol (that's where you appear if you play the Serenade of Water to warp here...) is a tree, use the Longshot to get to the top and find this spider. - - - GERUDO VALLEY - - - Child Link: 47 - At the start, right next to the board bridge, is a small, miniscule waterfall. Thar she blows! You need the Boomerang to pick up the treasure it drops. 48 - You know those ledges in the canyon, at the start of the HUGE waterfall, where you picked up a few Heart Pieces? Well, there is a soft soil spot don there. Guess what to do next... Adult Link: 49 - Look behind the tent where all the Carpenters live; you need the Hookshot to pick up the token, though... 50 - If you haven't found this one, you scare me. Near the entrance to Gerudo's Fortress; look up high. You'll need Mr. Hookshot, as always. - - - GERUDO FORTRESS - - - Adult Link: 51 - In the Horse Archery area, it's on one of the tall targets, you, obviously, need the Longshot. Also note that you would have had to save all four carpenters, since you can't get up there before then (dumb guards...). 52 - If you've explored around the Fortress, you should have found this one by now. An easy way to get over there to actually collect the token it drops is to use the Hoverboots. - - - HAUNTED WASTERLAND - - - Adult Link: 53 - Once you get to the stone structure where your Poe Guide is, go around to the side and fall down the hole. At the bottom of the tunnel is, yes you guessed it, a Skulltula! Unlike most, you can look for this in the middle of the day. Strange... - - - DESERT COLOSSUS - - - Child Link: 54 - There is some soft soil near the entrance to the Spirit Temple. Adult Link: 55 - On a big old boulder near the Fairy Fountain (ride the magical bean platform to get there). 56 - On a palm tree; use the Hookshot to collect it. (The rest are dungeons. Keep in mind that you can see if you've collected all the Skulltulas in the particular dungeon by checking the map. If there is a Golden Skulltula Icon at the top, you have.) - - - DEKU TREE DUNGEON - - - Child Link: 57 - In the room where you press the switch to raise three platforms (you get the Compass here), one of the platforms leads to a small aclove. It's in there. Just don't be too quick to jump, a Giant Skulltula will fall from above, so if you do, you'll be knocked down! 58 - After breaking the first spiderweb you'll be in a water room. If you try to climb out on the vines, you'll notice this one, which is also on the ivy. Use the Slingshot to kill it, then climb the vines to collect the token. 59 - In the same room as above, there is a hole with bars covering it, there it is! You don't need the Boomerang to collect the token, as a lot of people have sad. Just jump from the nearby platform (the one where you press the switch to make the nearby torch light). 60 - In one room you will have to torch a spider web where you will then follow a small tunnel to the highest platform from the water room (see above). One of the spiderwebs seems to go with a dead-end, with a single Deku Baba. But, the dead-end has a strange looking wall...use a bomb and...WAHOO! There you go. Use the Boomerang to collect the token it leaves behind. - - - DODONGO'S CAVERN - - - Child Link: 61 - In the hall just right of the main room (area where you must shove a statue onto a switch to keep it down) are several Dodongo Larva...and an odd part of the wall. Before collecting the Bomb Bag, kill a Larva near the wall and hen it dies it will blow it away. Obviously, if you have bombs it's a bit easier. Inside is a room with an Armos Statue; look behind it for this tricky spider. 62 - Remember where you had to blow away a bunch of bombs at once to form a series of stairs to an above area? Same room, up the stairs, on some vines. That was pretty simple... 63 - After going through the Giant Dodongo Head, go through the tunnel, climb the blocks...WAIT! Look on the wall, to your right. There should be a strange part there, bomb it to reveal a door. Inside is an Armos, kill it and it will be behind it. 64 - *GASP* This one actually requires EFFORT! First off, make sure everything is reset in this dungeon (just leave and come back in). Then, in the main room, hop on the elevator platform and go through the door there. Now drop down to the switchblade maze, and climb up the ladder (NOT the one with the blue block). Go across the bridge...now we should be in the room where you had to bomb the pillar to make some stairs...but on the wrong side! Follow the path left, climb the vines against the pillar, and you'll find a Skulltula. Kill it, then grab the token with your Boomerang. This took me ages to figure out... Adult Link: 65 - In the hallway with Larva Dodongos, the area where you had to push a statue onto a switch to make it stay down, when Navi flies up to a ledge and turns green, but nothing is there, play the Scarecrow's Song and use Pierre and the Hookshot to get up there. I believe you can take it from there... - - - LORD JABU-JABU'S BELLY - - - Child Link: 66 - In the room with a switch that raises the water, it's on some vines. Kill it with the Slingshot and then climb up to retrieve it. If you missed this one, I am frightened. 67 - After falling don the hole that the green tentacle was covering, look on the wall, you'll need the Boomerang. 68 - The same as above, except only a few feet away, on the same wall. 69 - All hail 69! In the room before the boss, on some vines. Just kill it with the Slingshot and then collect it... - - - FOREST TEMPLE - - - Adult Link: 70 - In the first room, on the vines. Just use your Hookshot to defeat it, then climb up to get the token. 71 - In the main room (with the four torches and an elevator to the Boss Door), on the wall. Hard to miss! 72 - In the plant room where you fell down a well to retrieve a key, you've probably spotted a Golden Skulltula on a wall, but it's just out of reach! The hard way is to come back with the Longshot. The easy way is to use the small chest that is up there as an Hookshot target and pull yourself up there! 73 - Basically, look over the balcony in one of the plant rooms, you'll spot a ledge that can only be reached by dropping down. Voila! Skulltula! 74 - In the final room before the Boss Door, where you rotate the wall, it will be in the aclove with a Giant Skulltula (go inside and scan the wall). Use the Hookshot to get it. - - - FIRE TEMPLE - - - Adult Link: 75 - In the large lava room with a long bridge going across (go right in the first room to find it). The door on the left side of the chamber has a blue block, play the Song of Time to make it form a ladder to the upper area; it's inside. 76 - At the bottom level of the boulder maze. Walk along the all and listen for the familiar "sheeseeh" noise the Skulltula makes. Now, look at the wall, find a weak part, and bomb it! If you're ears are correct, an aclove with a Golden Skulltula should be revealed. 77 - In the room before you get the Boss Key, it has spinning tile enemies and a Like Like, look behind the Like Like. Just be sure not to lose anything :) 78 - On the top level of the boulder maze (second floor you could call it) is a platform way up in the air. Play the Scarecrow's Song and use Pierre as a Hookshot target to get up there! Follow the path to find this tricky Skulltula. 79 - After doing that, continue. Soon you'll end up in the room here you retrieved the Megaton Hammer, you will spot a nearby island in mid-air. Hookshot, anyone? - - - ICE CAVERN - - - 80 - In the room with the spinning knife contraption (resembles a helicopter blade) are some icicles on the side; smash them with your sword and look up on the wall. I believe a Silver Rupee is behind here, but I'm not sure since I already collected them in this game... 81 - Same little aclove where you got the Heart Piece, across from the Compass...which branches off from the above room (you need to melt the passageway with blue fire; it's covered in red ice! 82 - On the wall in the block puzzle room. Use the Hookshot to clean it off, obviously. - - - WATER TEMPLE - - - Adult Link: 83 - Inside the central pillar (need to drain the water to the very bottom first to actually get inside) in the main room, on the ceiling. You'll need to acquire the Longshot first, though, otherwise you can't collect the token it leaves behind. 84 - In the room where there are several platforms going down a waterfall, you can Hookshot to them. On the right-hand side (coming from the main area, at least) is a Skulltula! You need the Longshot, like before. 85 - In the first underground river, the one with vortexes, look on the wall above the second vortex. Use the Iron Boots, then use the Hookshot to kill it and retrieve the token. 86 - Facing the passageway where Princess Ruto used to be, head left and go in that passageway. Blow up the crack in the floor, use your Iron Boots to follow the path, hit the switch to raise the stairs...and come face-to-face with a grate, and the Diamond Object is on the other side. Either use a lunge (Z + A) or a Spin Slash to activate it. Inside the cage is, yes, a Skulltula. 87 - Before collecting the Boss Key you had to sink behind a waterfall, which spewed out boulders. On the wall, behind the falls, is a Skulltula! To avoid getting hit by a boulder, use the Hookshot from the nearby passageway. - - - SHADOW TEMPLE - - - Adult Link: 88 - In the room with the guillotines (sp?), you will eventually come face to face with a Stalfos. After defeating him, head left instead of right (right leads to the platform on chains). Use your Lens of Truth to find the invisible platforms. In the next room, collect the Silver Rupees (piece 'o cake!) to make a door open that has this Skulltula. Just be careful - there is an invisible death statue with blades (use Lens of Truth to see). 89 - In the chamber where you had to use a block to get past falling spikes, explore inside the little cages (they remind me of jails) and you will find one inside. 90 - Before playing Zelda's Lullaby to make the large ship move, get as close to the front as possible and look slightly to your left, you should spot a Skulltula across the way. Use you can either use the Scarecrow's Song to get over there, or just use your Longshot to kill the Skulltula; either way is fine. 91 - Behind the rotating, blue flaming skulls (kinda hard to forget about that!). 92 - Behind the second set of flaming skulls near the end in the room with invisible walls, right after the ship sinks - - - SPIRIT TEMPLE - - - Child Link: 93 - In the room where you had to push the Sun Icon on a block into the sunlight, go through the exit that leads to the Iron Knuckle. Go forward a bit, then turn around and look above the door. Use the Boomerang, obviously. 94 - Go through the small hole at the very beginning (the one where Nabooru was) and then go through the right door. This Skulltula is across the chasm and on the grating; use the Boomerang. 95 - After crawling through the second tunnel, and going through the locked door, climb the wall (you might want to take out any would-be- threats with your Slingshot), then turn around and you'll be eye-to-eye with a Golden Skulltula. Adult Link: 96 - In one room you must collect Silver Rupees in acloves while avoiding boulders. One of the acloves is plugged up with a blue block; play the Song of Time to make it disappear. Now, take a wild guess at what's inside...hint: It's not money, but it's almost as dirty! 97 - In the large chamber with the huge statue (the head containers the Boss Door), go up the stairs and play the Scarecrow's Song to lure Pierre out of hiding, then use him to grapple to a small ledge. Lookie at 'dat! - - - BOTTOM OF THE WELL - - - Child Link: Why did I save this one for last? Because you have to go through Hell to collect the Golden Skulltulas! Instead of a regular list, I will actually present a mini-walkthrough. So, listen up, and follow these directions very carefully...and make sure you have the Lens of Truth, else you'll be lost and confused (I mean more than you are now), so when I say "invisible", it means to use it, obviously. Here we goooo: >From the entrance, go through the small hole in front of you. Kill the Giant Skulltula and run right through the invisible wall. Go around the pit in the floor and turn right, and follow where the river used to be. Look on the left-hand side wall, eventually you will find an invisible aclove with a small chest - inside is a Small Key! Grab it, then return to the main area (all you have to do is backtrack a bit), just keep following where the river USED to be. Soon you'll find another invisible aclove in the wall, it's a little bit before the first turn in the river (which is to the right). Inside is a small chest - inside of that is a Small Key! Follow the path around, eventually you'll do a loop and find a Like Like inside a cage...and inside is a Skulltula! But that's later. Across from the cage is a wall you can walk through, do so. Walk straight across the room, but make sure not to fall down the invisible pit in the center (it's where all the blood is). You'll come into a hallway, just keep going straight. You'll come to some grating, fall down, go through the grating, climb the wall, and go through the door there, you can also open the small chest for a Heart. Now, in this room are several coffins, a torch next to each, and a few lit ones. Use your Deku Stick to light the torches and the coffin they are next to will open, revealing enemies and a few items. But, the one on the left row, farthest from the entrance has a Small Key inside! Collect it, naturally, and fight your way out of this room (each coffin you opened just released more Keese and Gibdos, which is a small price to pay). Go down the grating, through it, climb the vines on the opposite side, and go through the wall in front of you. We're now back in the room with a bloodstained floor. There should be a locked door to your left...go inside! There is a Deku Baba, stun it with your Boomerang, then kill all the flying pots by using your shield, then kill the Deku Baba. There's the Golden Skulltula, on the wall. Defeat it with your Slingshot, then collect the token it leaves behind with your Boomerang. Leave the room the way you came in. Turn left, on the other side of this chamber is another locked door. Before doing anything, destroy all of the Keese in this room! Just Z- target and wham on them with whatever you got...I like the Boomerang myself. Now, it looks like there is no way to get to the nearby aclove, but there is an invisible path you can take to get there (Use the Lens of Truth, genius). Inside the aclove is another Golden Skulltula! Only one more to go...exit the room. Turn to your extreme left and go through the wall, we're back in the river place again! Go left again and you'll come to another one of those face paintings that give you clues if you Z-target them. Just be careful near this one - there is a hole under him. Turn right, past the face, and you'll be in front of a hole, crawl through and go through the door there. First off, use your Lens of Truth to spot the invisible holes in the room, then Z-target the Keese and throw the Boomerang at them, this is easier than using the Slingshot. Then, kill the Beamos in the center by Z-Targeting it and tossing a bomb it's way (A Bombchu also works quite well). Then make your way through this room, avoiding the pits (the chest in this room has some Rupees, or a Deku Shield if you lost yours). Aiiiiah! You're inside of a cage, with a Like Like! Scary stuff. Quickly paralyze it with your Boomerang, then do a lunge (Z + A), another good whack will put it down for good. Open the chest for some Rupees and...wait...what's that I see? THE LAST GOLDEN SKULLTULA! Ten Biggest Poes 1. In the south east corner of Hyrule Field is a grove of trees, and a brown boulder. Near the boulder will be this little Poe. 2. In the same grove as before, but a little towards Hyrule Lake (the entrance), but still in the grove. Search around. 3. Near the tree that is at the entrance to Lon Lon Ranch. 4. The ledge near the entrance to Kakariko Village, get on it and look down and the Poe should appear. 5. East of Lon Lon Ranch, in the stone barrier that looks like a giant Y (on the map). It's inside the little prongs, if you know what I mean. 6. Outside of the entrance to The Market is a sign that says "You are here: Hyrule Castle. This way to Lon Lon Ranch." Stand here and it should appear. 7. Outside the entrance to Geurdo's Valley, there is a fork in the road; one leads to Gerudo Valley, the other leads to Lake Hylia. It's in the middle of the fork, usually on the path leading to Lake Hylia, but not always. 8. Gerudo Valley again, sorta. Before the ground turns brown, follow the wall north and there will be a large tree with a few bushes. It should be nearby. 9. Remember the grove of trees west of The Market, the same one with the hidden grove with a Heart Piece? Near the bushes the Poe will appear. It sometimes, albeit rarely, appears across the river. 10. Go west from the entrance to Kokiri Forest and there will be a gray stone there. Kill the poe. Four Bottles Throughout the game, it is important to collect the four bottles. You'll need them if you want to bring a healer with you, or if you want to collect all 100 gold skulltula tokens. Here is how to get the four bottles. NEW INFO - Ok, the bottles will no longer help you on your quest; you will rely on them to complete the game! Trust me, going into one of the dungeons as an adult with 4 full bottles of blue magic potion is the way to go... 1st Bottle - You will have to go to Kakariko Village and find the lady missing her chickens. If you return all 7 to her, she will reward you with a bottle. Here is how to get those chickens: # 1 - In front of you when you enter the village from Hyrule Field. # 2 - There's one wandering about near the chicken pen, where the chicken lady is. # 3 - Near the entrance to Death Mountain; below the steps. # 4 - In a fence behind the House of Skulltula. You'll have to grab another chicken (just walk up to it and the option "Grab" will appear) and then float there from the adjacent platform. Then, once there, throw both chickens off the platform. Now go chase them and put them in the pen! # 5 - In the area behind the normal Potion Shop, where the Special Potion Shop. Since you're Young Link you can't get there via the Normal Potion Shop, so you'll need to find a new way. Grab a chicken and go up the stairs in front of the chicken pen, the area with the windmill door. Keep going, the fence will end and you can jump off. In front of you are two fences, the one to the left is higher, but smaller. The right is bigger, but shorter. I know it sounds crazy, but go to the higher one, on the left. You have to be going fast, and at the right angle. Once there, throw the chicken you used to get there over the fence. Another one is wandering down below. # 6 - Same thing as above, but after that, go down, avoid the hole (it will reset the town, making all of this in vain) and climb the ladder. At the top is a chicken. Throw it over the fence, then go pick them up and throw 'em in the pen. # 7 - Near the entrance to the town, almost straight ahead, is a house. Up against it, to the left, is a large crate. You can bomb it or roll into it (sheath your sword and the option "Attack" will appear. This is really the roll). If you roll into it, or bomb it, it will break open, revealing your prize, another cucco. When you have all 7 in the pen, talk to the lady and she'll hand over the bottle. 2nd Bottle - Go to Lon Lon Ranch and enter the first door on the left. Wake up Talon by talking to him, then play his chicken game. One goes by the door, one to the back by the hay, and one mid-way to the back on the far wall. Then talk to Talon and he'll give you the bottle. 3rd Bottle - (This is all in the walkthrough, but.......) Get the silver scale at Zora's Domain, and go through the passage under the water. You'll end up in Lake Hylia. Grab the bottle with the note in it. Show it to King Zora. He'll take the note but he'll let you keep the bottle! 4th and Final Bottle - As an adult, have an empty bottle and get on Epona. Every time you see a Poe, shoot it while on Epona. Put the gold light in a bottle and sell it to the ghost catcher in the first house in the market. He'll give you 50 rupees and 100 points on your card for every poe you catch. When you have 1,000 points on your card, he'll give you a bottle. Biggorons Sword Turning adult gives you the opportunity to get the most powerful weapon in the game, the Biggoron's Sword. It's like the giant's knife, but more powerful and it doesn't break. The only down side is that it's so big you can't use your shield with it. Here it is. ===================================== Step 1: As an adult, go to Kakariko Village and talk to the chicken lady. She will give you the egg. Play the song of the sun twice and the egg should hatch. Take the cucoo into the house where Talon is sleeping. Go up to him and wake him up with it. Talk to him after you wake him up. Go back outside and present the cucoo to the chicken lady. Now she will give you Cojiro, the rare blue cucoo. Step 2: Take Cojiro to the lost woods. When you first enter the lost woods, take the first left and there will be a guy sleeping by a tree stump. Use Cojiro to wake him up. He gives you an Odd Mushroom for the cucoo. Step 3: This is the first timed trade. Dont worry, you should get it with about a minute left if you use Epona. Take the mushroom to Kakariko Village. Go into the potion shop near the tall watch tower. Go out the back of the shop and jump down. The entrance to the old lady's potion shop is up the stairs and in the door. Go in and talk to the old lady. She will smell the mushroom and give you a potion made with it. Step 4: Take the Potion back to where you got the mushroom. The guy is gone but there is a Kokiri girl in his place. Present her with the potion and she will take it and give you the Poachers Saw. Exit the lost woods. Step 5: Get over to Gerudo Valley and use Epona to jump across the ravine or use the longshot. Present the Poachers Saw to the boss carpenter by the tent. He will give you the Broken Goron Sword. Step 6: Time to meet the biggest goron you have ever seen. Go up death mountain trail and get to the top. Kill the spiders on the climbing wall before you climb up. There are three of them. Careful! there is a tekitite that will jump down from the first ledge and knock you off. Lure him off by going up to the climbing wall. Kill him and climb to the top. Talk to the big goron and present the broken sword to him. He will give you the prescription card. Step 7: Go to Zoras Domain and if you have not thawed King Zora, do so now. You need a blue flame to do this, duh. Show him the prescription and he will give you an Eyeball Frog. The quickest way to get out of Zoras Domain is to just jump into the river and run down until you get to Hyrule Field. Step 8: Get on Epona and get to Lake Hylia as fast as possible. Go into the Lakeside Laboratory and show the scientist the Eyeball Frog. He says he is going to eat it but dont worry, he gets the point. He makes the Eyedrops from it. Step 9: This one can be hard if you get caught up on something. Dont try to jump any fences because you know how Epona can be. Just get to the entrance to Kakariko Village and dismount from Epona. Get into Kakariko and make your way to Death Mountain. Get up there as fast as you can avoiding the rolling boulders and Tekitites. Once you get to the part with spiders on the climbing wall, kill them fast and lure the tekitite off the ledge. You should get up to the Big Goron with about 20 seconds to spare. Give the Big Goron those Eyedrops and he will give you the Claim Check. Step 10: The final step. Play the Song of the Sun a few times so that it makes about 4 days go by. Go talk to Big Goron and he will give you the mighty Biggorons Sword! Use it with pride, you earned it!!! ************************************************************************ Notes: Using Ocarina songs to transport yourself from place to place to get there quicker will NOT work. Once you warp there you have one second left on your timer. You do get as many tries as you want but it is a wast of time to try and warp.

Also check the credits section. =============== THE FISHING FAQ FOR ZELDA 64 =============== v 1.3 Contents 1. Introduction 2. Questions 3. Other Tips 4. Version Info 5. Requests for this FAQ 6. Copyright 1. INTRODUCTION In Zelda 64 there's a fishing pond in Lake Hylia. This is a FAQ designed to help you make the best of your fishing experience. If you have any more questions or tips PLEASE send them to me at my e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org 2. QUESTIONS Q. Where is the fishing pond? A. It's in Lake Hylia, on a platform on the east side. Enter the door, talk to the man, pay him the rupees, and start fishing. Q. I don't understand the controls. A. Press the Z button to target a fish. Then hit B to cast your line. If the fish is close and you think you'll cast too far, press the A button to brake the line. Once the line is in the water, tap the B button, or wiggle the control stick left and right, to attract the fish. When it bites, quickly pull back on the control stick and hold down A and R. (Pulling back on the stick sets the hook.) After about 5 seconds, stop pulling back, but keep the A and R buttons down to reel the fish in. Now you can change the camera spots with Z. I recommend the closest view. Once the fish is reeled in close, the camera shot will shift to behind Link. The fish will bounce around. Now gently push the control stick left _or_ right. The fish is now yours! Q. Do I need a Rumble Pak to fish? A. It's not required but I DEFINITELY recommend having one. Q. Help! I'm an adult, and I can't get to the fishing pond! A. You can't swim to the fishing pond until you've beaten the Water Temple. But, if you planted a bean in the soil next to the Lakeside Laboratory when you were a kid, you can ride the plant over to the pond before you complete the Water Temple. Or use the scarecrow's song. Q. Where is the sinking lure? A. Before I explain it, just remember that if you use the sinking lure you won't get a prize for your catch. Okay. When you're a kid, the sinking lure is found on the stick that's sticking out of the pond. Just walk over that stick until you find it. As an adult, the sinking lure is in between two of the three rocks at the tiny stream. Keep in mind that you can't see it. Q. Oh! I caught one! It weighs... 4 pounds! A. Throw it away. Only keep the fish that are bigger than the fish in the tank at the entrance. Q. There's a huge fish that I'm targeting. How can I ensure that I get it? A. When you cast, brake the line so that it land just in front of the fish's face. BE CAREFUL!!! If another fish comes along and grabs your bait, the big fish will scurry away and never come back to this spot. Q. Are there any outside factors that affect the fish's biting? A. The time of day is a huge factor. Early in the morning when the sun comes up, and just after the sun goes down are the best time to fish. See tip (h) on how to make it rain in the pond, so the fish will bite more! Q. Where can I snag some big fish in the pond? A. One good spot is around the three sticks near the small stream. Near the lily pads is another good spot, but if you have the sinking lure, it can be difficult. Why? See tip (b) below. Q. What's the biggest fish? A. I have no clue. I keep getting email about it. Fist it was 20, then 23, then 26, and two reports of 48-pounders, and I'm pretty sure it keeps going on and on! See tip o for my theory. 3. OTHER TIPS a) If you have the sinking lure, cast your line out into the middle of a group of fish without targeting and let your line sink to the bottom. Now the biggest fish of that group will try to get the line. b) If you have the sinking lure, you won't be able to feel or hear the fish bite. So watch carefully, and if a fish bites, set the hook and reel it in. For this reason, it's tough to fish with a sinking lure near the lily pads. c) Try fishing while standing on the little stick in the middle of the pond. This is only a good idea with the sinking lure, though. d) If you have them, put on your iron boots, and walk around at the bottom of the pond. If you see a big fish, try to target it, then back up, and cast for it. e) Sometimes, the target will disappear if you get too close. f) Stand as close to the water's edge as possible. It's easier to pull them in that way. g) Somewhere in the pond there is a fish that weighs 34 pounds!!! It's called the Hylian Loach and the man won't keep it in his tank because it's so rare! h) It will rain in the pond if you enter JUST BEFORE it gets dark, and then if you wait a while, it will get dark and start to rain. When it rains, fish will bite a LOT more. i) Get your line from the guy just as you walk in and walk very slowly over to the lily pads and then onto the log. Then next to the log just ahead of you there will be the biggest fish in the pond! (See tip o for what I mean by "biggest fish".) j) It's said you can hook your line onto the guy's hat and cast the hat into the pond. It's funny! - but you lose 50 rupees. k) The fish you catch in the pond can't be kept in a bottle. To get a bottled fish, buy one, or bottle one that you find in the shallow waters around Hyrule! l) The biggest fish is near the side of the log in the middle of the pond. What I mean is, stand on the log, and face the three sticks, and cast out short. It WILL take more than one try to hook it, and it will always follow the same patterns as to where it moves after it gets off the line. After it's unhooked the first time, it will go to the middle of the pond and stay close to the arch in the log. The second time, it will swim to the poles sticking out of the water. Then it just repeats this pattern over and over. But be warned: It can take 15 minutes to reel this catch in!! It's a tough catch, but a very fulfilling one! m) If you're reeling in a big fish, an your rumble pak is shaking like crazy, it means there's too much tension on the line, and you're about to lose the fish. If this does happen, try moving the control stick in the direction that the fish is to lessen the tension. n) If you stand on the log and wait for a big fish to come, DON'T target. Just cast and wiggle your control stick, and the big fish will jump up and grab your lure, and he'll be caught!! o) OK, I've finally figured out how the lunker works! Suppose you have a 16-pounder in the tank. The biggest in the pond is an 18-pounder, and it will hang out either by the 3 sticks or around the logs. If it moves away from one of these locations, it'll go to the other! Once you catch a fish bigger than the one in the tank, have the man weigh it, then leave, and then go back in. Now there will be an even bigger one in the water! 4. VERSION INFO 1.3 (01/17/99) - Modified tip g, i, j, and last question, added tip o. This FAQ should be complete if I don't get much more stuff. 1.2 (01/04/99) - Added tip l, m, n 1.1 (01/02/99) - Added tip g, h, i, j, k, scarecrow tip, and "biggest fish" question 1.0 (12/31/98) - Initial Release. 5. REQUESTS FOR THIS FAQ 1. I want to know your tactic for reeling the fish in once it's bitten your lure! Is there anyhing you do that decreases the chances of it getting away?? 2. Anything involving fishing in Zelda! 3. OK people! You can stop e-mailing me about using the scarecrow's song to get to the fishing pond!! I know!! I added it already!! - ---------- I, also want to add one thing....... You get the golden scale from the fishing pond, which allows you to dive for up to 8 seconds. Many people say that the way to get it is to catch a 15+ pound fish, but this isn't true! I caught a 13 pounder as an adult and got the golden scale, so my guess is that you catch a 10+ pounder as a kid and a 10+ pounder as an adult. Who knows? Melodies There are a lot of songs you learn throughout the game that allow you to do things or warp you places. Here is a list of them, and below that is a list of real life songs that you can play for fun. 1. Zelda's Lullaby C Left, C Up, C Right, C Left, C U, C Right Impa teaches you this song when you first meet Zelda. Play it whenever you see a triforce symbol! 2. Sun's Song C Right, C Down, C Up, C Right, C Down, C Up Learn this by playing Zelda's Lullaby on the triforce symbol in the graveyard, then get to the end of the royal family's tomb. This song changes it from night to day and reverse in Hyrule. 3. Epona's Song C Up, C Left, C Right, C Up, C Left, C Right Learn this from Malon as a kid and use it to get free Lon Lon milk from cows, and to use Epona as an adult. 4. Saria's Song: C Down,C Right, C Left, C Down, C Right, C Left Saria teaches you this song as a kid in her favorite spot that will later be calles the forest temple. Use it to communicate with her no matter how far away you are! 5. Song of Time: C Right, A, C Down, C Right, A, C Down The last song you learn as a kid, taught to you by the Princess herself. It opens the door of time and moves blue blocks around. 6. Song of Storms: A, C Down, C Up, A, C Down, C Up This song is required to get the lens of truth. It drains the windmill and makes it rain. Taught to you as an adult by the guy in the windmill when you show him your ocarina. 7. Minuet of the Forest: A, C Up, C Left, C Right, C Left, C Right Warps you to the Scared Forest Meadow in the Lost Woods. Taught to you by Sheik. 8.

Prelude of Light: C Up, C Right, C Up, C Right, C Left, C Up Warps you back to the Temple of Time. Taught to you by Sheik when you return to the Master Sword room after beating the Forest Temple. 13. Scarecrow's Song: You-Decide! As young Link, go to Lake Hylia and look for a farm like area. Show the scarecrow your Ocarina and he'll ask you to compse a song eight letters long. He'll "record" it for you...Make it easy to remember! Then, as Adult Link, come back and play the exact song for him. Now you have it! Playing this song will make the Scarecrow warp down and sit in an area high above, so you can use him as a HookShot/LongShot target. Mask trades As a kid, you can go to the market and into the happy mask shop. There, you borrow masks and sell them, then return the money. Sometimes you profit, sometimes you lose, but the main point is to get the mask of truth. You can only tade masks when you're a kid! Here's who to sell them to, in order. The Keaton Mask: To the guard in front of the gate blocking Death Mountain Trail. The Skull Mask: Take a left in the Lost Woods, and stand on the stump and play Saria's Song to the skull kid. Then, after he gives you a heart piece, show him the skull mask. The Spooky Mask: Go to the Kakariko Village Graveyard and sell it to the wandering boy. The Bunny Hood: Get all 3 stones and the ocarina of time, then go to the left of Lon Lon Ranch and find the runner. Follow him until it's night, and he'll rest. Sell the mask for big cash, then return to the happy mask shop and get the Gerudo Mask, Zora Mask, and Goron Mask. Talk to those races while wearing them. You can also now get the mask of truth that allows you to talk to gossip stones. Great fairy Locations There are 6 hidden Great Fairy Fountains in Zelda. When get to one, play Zelda's Lullaby on the triforce symbol and a fairy will appear, fill your life up, and grant you a new power or spell. Here are the 6 locations and what you get: 1.) Magic Meter - Go to the top of Death Mountain and bomb the wall where you see a boulder that is the shape of a rupee. You will get a Magic Meter, that allows you to use different spells you get, and also gives you a spin attack where you hold B and a ring of fire will surround your sword. 2.) Din's Fire - Go to the castle and get past the fence, then find the sign that says "dead end." Bomb the rock behind it to find a fairy that will grant you Din's Fire. 3.) Farore's Wind - Swim in the water to the island behing Lord Jabu Jabu and bomb the rock to find a fairy that will grant you Farore's Wind. 4.) Double Magic Meter - After beating the Fire Temple, instead of going into Goron City, go left across the bridge and knock crush the rocks with your megaton hammer, to double the sixe of your magic meter! 5.) Nayru's Love - Warp to the entrance of the Spirit Temple and look for two palm trees with a cracked wall behind them. Bomb it to find the fifth fairy. 6.) Double Defense - Get the golden gauntlets in Ganon's Castle, then exit and find the place where you found Din's Fire. Throw the pillar away with the golden gauntlets and get double defense..... It increases your life when you get hit by 1/2. Ganons castle and the end of the game Aproach the river of red stuff, and you'll see Ganon's Castle floating in mid air! Then all 6 sages will appear, and they'll make a rainbow and turn it into a bridge for you! Cross it and enter. Run past the beamos.... Don't take any chances, just get to the main room. Now, there are 6 barriers here that you have to defeat to get into the main part of Ganon's Castle. They are based on the Temples / Medallions. It doesn't matter which order you do them in, so I'll list them in the order it goes in the game. Light Barrier: Using the Golden Gauntlets (see Shadow Barrier) get rid of that pillar. Use your lens of truth to spot all the keese and skulltulas and kill them all. A chest will come down as a result with a key. Ignore the other chests. Stand on the Triforce Symbol and play Zelda's Lullaby for another small key. Now collect all the silver rupees in under 1 minute. There's one in every area, two in the main tower, and one on the top that requires the longshot. The use your lens of truth to spot a passage that leads to a yellow ball. Shoot it with a LIGHT ARROW so Rauru destroys the Light Barrier and you return to the main room. Forest Barrier: Stand in the center of the room and use Din's Fire to light the torches. Light the final one above the door by using a fire arrow or lining an arrow up with an already lit one. Enter the next room. You'll have to collect the silver rupees here. Go to the left, equip the hover boots, and use the fan to get a push to the platform near the beamos. Throw a bomb at it to get rid of it and make this room A LOT easier! Get to the switch and hitting makes a longshot target appear. Use it to gain a rupee. For the final one, wait for the fan to stop or slow down, and quickly get over there! When you're there, equip your iron boots to prevent falling off. Go through the door, and shoot the green ball with a LIGHT ARROW so Saria destroys the forest barrier and you return to the main room. Fire Barrier: Put on your goron tunic and collect the silver rupees, which is pretty tough. You'll have to hurry when on that main platform because it will sink. The ones on the left there are easy. Then go over to the huge block. You'll need the golden gauntlets here (see Shadow Barrier) and lift the block so it forms a bridge. You'll see one here. The get to the platform with the torch slug, but get there by using the hover boots; not the longshot. Then get the final one with use of the bridge. Use your longshot to get to the exit. Nail the red ball with a LIGHT ARROW so Darunia destroys the fire barrier and you return to the main room. Water Barrier: This place is a lot like the Ice Cavern. Kill the enemies to open the first door. Get some blue fire from the torch in the center of the room, and use it to burn the red ice exit. Bottle some more for the next room. Push the block that is faq away from the entrance into the hole after mixing it around a bit. Now push the other one into the first object then to the next. Now push it over to the red ice. Burn it and hit the switch with the megaton hammer, and exit the room. Shoot the blue ball with a LIGHT ARROW so Ruto destroys the Water Barrier, and you return to the main room. Shadow Barrier: Use the torch on the right as a longshot target and get over there. Now use the Like Like as a longshot target to the platform, and kill it when you get over there.
