Arrows are the Ammo for the Fairy Bow. When you first get the bow, it comes with 30 arrows. They can then be found all over Hyrule in Pots, plants, and stores.
The strongest weapon in the game, this huge sword causes massive damage to your enemies and makes any foe seem like a weakling. Not to be confused with the inferior Giant's knife that breaks after a few hits, this sword will never break, and as such, is rather hard to get. This is where you have to do something known as the Adult Trading Sequence. It is recommended that you have at least a majority of the Temples defeated to make things easier. Do not Warp during the timed portions of the sequence, as it will cause the item to disapear. You wield the sword like any other, see the Kokiri Sword entry for details. All items in the trading sequence are shown to people as C-Button Items. Here is the Adult Trading Sequence:
These small crawling bombs are C-Button weapons that look like little mice. They can crawl up walls and pretty much anywhere before they explode after a short period of time. You first get them by winning the Bombchu Bowling Game in Hyrule Market as a kid. A store will also open that sells a limited amount of them, and the man on the magic carpet in the Haunted Wasteland will also sell them for a ridiculously expensive price.
Bombs are round C-Button explosives that are extremely useful. Use them to defeat certain enemies or blow up weakened parts of the ground or walls. You first get them in Dodongo's Cavern as a kid, in a large chest.
A Bomb Flower is an item that you pick up off the ground and then dropd or throw it. As soon as you pick it up, the fuse will be activated. Bomb Flowers are just like bombs except you cannot store them anywhere.
The Boomerang is a C-Button Weapon you use as a kid. You can use it to launch long range attacks that kill or stun certain enemies. It can also be used to bring certain items to you. You get it as a kid inside Lord Jabbu-Jabbu's belly.
In all the Temples as an adult, you need to find the boss key to unlock a usually large door that (Duh) leads to the boss. They are normally found in a large, highly decorated chest deep within the temple.
Bottles are very useful containers used to carry a variety of items. You can get a total of four bottles in the following ways:
You can fill empty bottles with many different things, and they sometimes come with odd items. Set the bottle to a C-Button if you wish to swing it to catch something when it is empty, or do the same to a full bottle to use the item inside. Here is what you can stick in a bottle:
The C-Button Chicken you use as a kid hatches from the Weird Egg. Use it to wake up Talon on your way to sneaking into the castle. This gets him out of the way so you can push the milk crates to where they need to be.
You can get a compass for any dungeon. They are normally in large, slightly out of the way, chests. It allows you to see Link's position on the map for that dungeon. That is, if you have the map for that dungeon.
They aren't really items, but you can pick them up, throw them, and attack them if you want.
These little nuts are C-Button weapons that you can use to stun an enemy for a short period of time. To get them, you can either Defeat a Deku Baba (Flower) or other enemy to sometimes get them, or buy them in stores.
Deku Seeds are the ammo for the Fairy Slingshot. You first get 30 of them when you initially get the Slingshot. THey can then be found all over Hyrule in plants, jars, and stores.
The Deku Shield is made out of wood, and is your primary method as defense as a child. Press R to crouch down and hide behind it, or hold Z and then hold R to be standing with it up. You can run with it this way. It will cause attacks like hurled Deku Nuts to bounce back at an opponent, and is an all around useful item. You first must buy a Deku Shield in the Kokiri Forest as a kid before you can even start any of your missions, but it costs forty Rupees to get. If it comes in contact with fire, you will lose it and have to buy a new one.
Long Deku Sticks are C-Button Items that you swing like a sword. They cause more damage than a sword, but break easily. You can get them by defeating A Deku Baba (Flower) while it is stunned or otherwise has its stalk sticking straight up, or by buying them at a store.
Din's Fire is a firey magic attack that is very effective for lighting multiple torches or catching a group of enemies off guard. You get this C-Button Spell from the Great Fairy near the inner castle as a kid. A stone is blocking the way to the entrance so you must bomb it to get in.
A Dungeon map can be found in any dungeon or temple in the game. It allows you to view a map in the bottom righth and corner of the screen by pressing the L Button. It also allows you to view the temple in-depth on one of the start screens.
This C-Button weapon is a long range weapon you use as an adult. It can be used while on or off your horse, and is sometimes also needed to activate some switches. You get the bow and arrows in a chest in the Forest Temple after defeating two Stalfos.
The first musical instrument of the game, you use it to play certain songs that are needed to beat certain parts of the game or help you on your quest. Equip it to a C-Button and play by using A and the other C-Buttons. You get it once you beat the Grat Deku Tree and leave the forest for the first time. In a short scene, Saria will stop and give it to you.
This is a C-Button weapon you use as a kid as a way for making long range attacks on enemies as well as activate certain switches. You find the Fairy Slingshot in a chest in The Great Deku Tree.
Another Magic spell, this one allows you to Warp inside Dungeons that have a map. Using it with a C-Button for the first time, you create a warp-point in the beginning of whatever room you are in. If you use it again, you can choose to dispel that warp-point or return to it. You get this spell from the Great Fairy at the back of Zora's Fountain as a child or adult. You must Bomb the entrance with the rocks along the wall to get in.
To get the fire arrows you must first have the ability to use magic along with having the regular arrows. Fire Arrows are useful for setting torches on fire along with the novelty of burning up your enemies. You can get the fire arrows at Lake Hylia once you have defeated the Water Temple. You will be on the island in the middle of the lake after Sheik talks to you, and it will conveniently be morning. Walk over to the area where you can stand and read. It will hint towards shooting the sun with your arrows. While it is still morning, and the sun is low, do so. The fire arrows will fall onto the small island that you are facing. Just go get them from there.
You use it in the fishing pond, duh. Cast with B, then use the control stick and B to wiggle the lure around. Holding down A will reel it in, and also holding down R while reeling will make it pull back in faster.
Gerudo Membership Card
This "item" is given to you by the Second in Command Geruso once you free all the carpenters. It allows you to come and go freely in the Gerudo fortress without being thrown in jail.
If there was ever an adult version of the breakable deku stick, this is it. It is a very expensive version, at that. Each time you break it the Big Goron inside of Goron City can repair it for you for a mere two hundred Rupees. It is best to get the Biggoron's Sword by doing the adult trading sequence. You get this sword from the Big-Goron sticking his head into Goron City as an adult. Wield it like any other sword. When it breaks, you can still use the hilt and attack enemies with it, but it will not be all that effective.
This Tunic allows you to resist fire and heat, so you won't get all burned up. You get it originally from the little Goron as an adult who was named after you. Stop his rolling by detonating a bomb near him and then talking to him. He will tell you the plight of the Gorons and give you the Tunic. If you lose it, you can buy another in the store. Isn't it just great that the Gorons make and sell human clothing?
You get these after defeating a boss. They increase your life hearts by one each. There are about 8 of them in the game, as there are eight Dungeon Bosses, not counting Ganondork.. err Ganondorf.
Heart pieces are gained by completing certain tasks or reaching certain areas. Four of them increase your life energy by one heart. There are 36 total, and one more you can get that is listed in my Glitch Page. Details of the rest of them can be found in my Heart Piece Page.
This is a C-Button item that launches a chain with a hook from the mount and can be used to latch onto certain surfaces and pull you to them. It can also pull certain objects to you like Skulltula tokens. The Hookshot can be used like a weapon, and will stun some enemies while killing others. You get the hookshot as an adult after racing Dampe the Gravedigger's ghost. His grave is the first one on the far left of the graveyard from the entrance. It has flowers in front of it. Pull it back to reveal a hole that leads you to his course.
Float on air or over water for an instant while wearing these boots with little wings on them. You get them in the Shadow Temple. I can make a million cracks about how they make you light-footed, or I can go off and compare the boots to old Nike commercials and slogans, but I don't feel like it right now.
The Hylian shield is the one shield that you can use as a kid and an adult. As a kid, pressing R will cause him to duck down underneath it, as he is too small to hold it up. As an adult, Link will be able to crouch down behind it or run with it up by holding Z, running forward, and holding R. You can get the Hylian shield from the Bazaar in the market, or there is one in a chest under one of the graves in Kakariko village.
The Ice arrows are another C-Button add-on to your arrows. You can get them by successfully beating Gerudo Training ground as an adult after you have beat Gerudo fortress. You pay the guard by the fence at the base of the building to open the gate and go inside. There is no real need or use for the ice arrows, beyond just watching your enemies freeze when you hit them with it. A hint for defeating the fortress is to not waste keys taking the right hand path in the maze, only go the left path.
The iron boots are the hottest craze all throughout Hyrule.. Well, not really. You equip this set of foot wear and you will bearely be able to move at a turtle's pace above water. They are very useful when you need to sink down to the bottom of a lake or pond, or when you need to keep your feet firmly planted in one place. The Iron boots are in a chest that appears in the final room of the Ice Cavern, after you defeat a snow wolf.
Keys are mostly used in temples, but they can also be used in the treasure chest game and to unlock the doors to the prisoners' cells in Gerudo Valley. They also permenantly unlock any other doors with chain locks on them. At Gerudo Valley, you get them by defeating the Gerudos that have two swords. The guards drop down once you talk to the carpenters, then defeat them and they will drop a key. In temples, they are found mostly in chests that you have to do some sort of task to reach or make appear.
Link's regular old shoes. Kind of amazing how they still fit him after seven years in the Chamber of Sages.
The Kokiri Sword is your main weapon as a kid. Use it with B for a horizontal cut. Run forward while holding Z and then press B to lunge. Swing and Hold down B for a Spin attack. You can power up your spin attack once you get magic. Running forward while pressing Z and then pressing A while your sword is out will make him doe an overhead lunging attack. This attack can also be done by pressing B when you leap off a ledge. Holding R while behind your Kokiri Sword and pressing B will cause him to do some sort of odd stabbing attack from begind his shield. You get the Kokiri Sword as a kid in the Kakiri forest at the top of the hill with fences. Climb through the hole and walk along thw wannabe maze to get to the chest. The sword is inside. You are told you can borrow it for a little while, even though you keep it through the entire game and actually upgrade it into a completely different weapon in Majora's mask.
Link's regular green clothes with matching green hat. Once again it is amazing how that thing still fits him after 7 years of growth.
Lense of Truth
The Lense of Truth is an item that allows you to see past deception. Set it to a C-Button and activate it. You will then be able to see false panels, holes in floors, along with invisible enemies and platforms. It consumes magic at a pretty slow rate, but while it is on, you cannot use any other magical items, and your powered spin attack will just become a regular spin attack. You get the Lense of Truth in a very confusing level under the well as a kid once you have used the Song of Storms inside the Windmill to drain it.
The ability to shoot Light Arrows is the final C-Button add-on option you can get for the arrows. You get them from Zelda once you have defeated all the temples as an adult and return to the Temple of Time. During the scene she will give them to you before being captured. You need them to defeat all the small temple blocks inside Ganon's Castle, as well as to defeat Ganondorf himself.
The Longshot is an upgrade for the hookshot above. The chain is much longer so you can use it at greater distances. Otherwise there is little difference between the two. You recieve the Longshot inside the Water Temple as an Adult.
Magic beans are C-Button items that you plant in the soft patches of soil scattered throughout Hyrule as a kid. Go back to where you planted them as an adult and small floating platforms will be in their place. These plaforms help you reach certain areas you would normally not be able to go. You Get Magic beans from the bean eating fellow in Zora's River. His prices start off cheap but soon become ridiculously expensive until you have bought all that you need.
Masks are C-Button items you can wear over your face to invoke odd responses when talking to people. You progessively get newer and newer masks as you go through the child trading sequence. I will tell you it here once instead of devoting a different page to it.
This is your main weapon as an adult that follows all the same controls as the Kokiri Sword. You need it to Defeat Ganon in the end of the game, even through there is a stronger sword available. Picking it up and replacing it in the platform in the Temple of Time allows you to move back and forth through time.
This massively heavy C-Button weapon is known as "The Legendary Hammer" by the Gorons. You use it to smash enemies to pieces and to activate rusted switches. You get it inside a chest in the Fire Temple.
The Mirror shield is a highly polished shield for use by adult Link. You can use it to reflect light or re-angle light to a new direction. You need it to get through the Spirit Temple as well as to defeat the twin-witch boss of that level. So it is pretty obvious that you get the shield at the Spirit Temple as an adult. It is in a Chest that srops down to the left hand of the desert Collosuss (From its point of view.)
Nayru's Love is a C-Button Magic Spell that makes you look kinda like you are inside a giant blue Rupee. No matter, for as long as this spell is active you will not be harmed by any attacks, even if they do still knock you over. You get Nayru's Love from the Great Fairy at the Desert Colossus. The entrance is another section of wall that you must bomb to get inside. It is along the right side of the rock wall from the entrance to this area from the Haunted Wasteland.
Ocarina of Time
This musical instrument replaces your Fairy Ocarina. You play it just like the last one, except it is blue and sounds a little bit different. You get this as a kid once you have all three spiritual stones and go to the castle. After a short scene in which Zelda throws the Ocarina into the river, you can dive in and get it. Another scene will happen that teaches you the song of time.
Pots and plants
You can pick them up and throw them, or slice them to pieces. There are normally useful items inside, and that is why I included them.
Stone of Agony
This "item" that looks suspiciously like an N64 rumble pack, is given to you by a kid in the House of Skulltula after killing 20 Gold Skulltulas. All it does is make your rumble pack vibrate if you are near a clue sometimes.
The Weird Egg is given to you by Malon if you talk to her a couple times before sneaking into the castle as a kid. It hatches into a chicken after the next time the Sun rises.
This C-Button item is given to you by Zelda when you first talk to her after sneaking in to the castle. Give it to the guard at Kakariko Village who controls the gate to Death Mountain trial by showing it to him with C.
The Zora Tunic allows you to breath underwater while wearing it. As an adult, if you unfreeze King Zora with a blue flame, he will give you one. If you also unfreeze the shop as an adult, you may buy one there as well.
