The Legend Of Zelda: Twilight Princess
Hint: Control Cucco:
When you find a Cucco, hit it eight times to go into
its view and to be able to move it around. The easiest way to
do this is just after you get the Iron Boots. Walk outside the
building to find a Cucco. Wear the boots and roll into it eight
Collect all sixty Poe Souls and bring them to Jovani.
He is in a house in the southeast corner of Castle Town. Turn
into a wolf and dig your way inside. Use your senses to find out
where to dig. After you give him 60 souls he will give you unlimited
rupees. Then, go to Kakariko village's Malo Mart. Donate enough
money to lower the prices in Town Castle's Malo Mart. You can
now buy a Magic Armor there for 598 rupees. The Magic Armor makes
you immortal, but normally reduces your rupees until you have
no more. Because you have unlimited rupees, you will stay immortal.
Hint: Defeating Aeralfos:
Use the following trick to defeat Aeralfos (small flying
dragon with shield) in City In The Sky. When it flies in the air,
wait for it to put its shield up and flaps its wings rapidly.
Then, Z target its shield and use the Clawshot to pull it towards
you. Slash it as much as you can. Do not use the Clawshot while
it is on the ground or it will pull you towards itself and slash
you. Keep pulling it towards you and slashing it. The Aeralfos
will fall and die.
If you are having trouble timing the Clawshot when he sticks up
his shield, shoot him with an arrow while targeting him. He will
put up his shield to block it and leave it up. You can now grab
him and pull him down to earth with the Clawshot. Once he is down,
hit him with a combo of sword attacks. When he starts to block
your attacks, use some of your skills (Helm Splitter or Rising
Strike work well). If he returns to flight, just repeat. If you
are fighting the mini-Boss version, he will fly out of one of
three windows on the walls. Look carefully and not which one he
enters. If he dives at you, make sure your shield is up. If he
suspends himself in the air, hook on to that shield and slash
Hint: Defeating Darkhammers:
When you are facing a Darkhammer (for example the three
in the last room of the Cave of Ordeals), throw bombs. This gets
their armor off quickly. When all of it is off, it will dodge
if you throw bombs. To kill it with the armor off, get close enough
until it tries to hit you. Just before it hits you, roll out of
the way to get in back of it. Then, just start slashing with your
Hint: Defeating Darknuts:
Whenever fighting the armored foes (while he has a
shield, at least), attack once. It will block your attack, but
immediately after you hit use a shield bash followed by a helm
splitter. Not only will this get rid of his helmet, it will also
get you behind him and leaving him open to further attack. Another
way to hit them (which is useful in the Cave Of Ordeals) is throw
a bomb directly behind them. If you throw it in front of them
they will block it. This is less effective than using the previous
tactic. Whenever the knight's armor is completely gone they will
simply dodge the bombs.
Hint: Defeating Diababa:
There are two stages of Diababa. For the first one,
notice that there are two giant Babas sticking out of the water.
Using the Gale Boomerang, get one of the Insect Bombs inside both
mouths using the targeting system. If you take too long, the heads
will attempt to bite you. Keep moving if you can. After that,
the main body will pop up, along with the two heads. Notice that
there are no more bombs. Run until a baboon appears with one.
While he is swinging, use the targeting system to get that bomb
to the main body. He will fall, giving you time to attack with
your sword. When he gets back up, Diababa will squirt poisonous
water at you. It is difficult to dodge. When you take him down
again, finish him with the first move you learned from the golden
wolf. This battle might take awhile if you do not use the Gale
Boomerang correctly. Note: Target both the bomb and Diababa.
Hint: Defeating the Dynalyfos Duo:
In the City in the Sky when fighting the Dynalyfos
Duo, do not keep attacking them. They will block all of your attacks
then hit you with an attack of their own. Take out your ball and
chain and throw it at them. They will be stunned for a few seconds.
Try to get in a few attacks. Repeat this strategy until they are
defeated. Alternately, when you enter the room stay where you
are and take out your bow and arrow. Combine it with the Hawkeye
and shoot the Dynalyfos. They will fly back against the wall.
Repeat this until they are defeated. Note: You must have 60 arrows.
Arrows are weak against them and you are likely to run out before
you kill them. Although arrows are weak against the Dynalyfos,
it is better than rushing into a battle and losing a lot of HP.
Hint: Defeating Fyrus:
Hit the crystal on his head. When he is stunned, go
around and pull on either of the chains that are attached to his
feet. This will trip him. Go up to his head and start slashing
away. By doing this you will not use up all of your arrows trying
to shoot his head all of the time just to get him down.
Shoot the eye on is head a few times and he will fall. Then run
up and start slashing away. He will get back up. This time you
only need to shoot him once and he will fall. Do it one more time
and you shall be victorious. If you are running low on arrows
or health there are pots around the room.
Hint: Defeating Ganondorf:
Ganon will begin the battle by taking over the Princess
and knocking out Midna. She will fire balls of energy at you.
When they hit, Midna will explain that your sword can reflect
them. When it connects three times with Zelda, Midna will pull
Ganondorf out of her and the next stage will begin. Ganon will
turn into a large beast with a jewel in his head. Shoot the jewel
with an arrow then attack his belly. He will disappear and red
swirling portals will appear. One will turn blue before he charges
at you from it. Continue shooting until he disappears each time
you shoot him. Midna will tell you to turn into the beast. When
Ganon charges again, target him and hold A, which will
imitate the cattle wrestling from the start of the game. Midna
will grab him and you must select a side to throw him to, then
attack his belly. Ganon will appear to die but will return once
more. Midna will use the fused shadows to try and kill his spirit
while teleporting Zelda and Link away from harm. Hyrule Castle
explodes from all the magic yet Ganon remains. You will start
the third stage of fighting Ganon. He is on horseback and Zelda
is given Light Arrows from the Spirits. You must ride close to
Ganon so she can shoot him then attack with your sword. Note:
If Ganon gets behind you he will attack and knock you off then
play chicken until you can get behind him again. After a certain
number of hits on horseback, he will face you in a sword fight.
He teleports every so often, but you can easily roll away. The
best way to kill him now is use the rolling attack from behind,
then swing your sword afterwards. He will take the spinning hit
and two slashes afterwards, but then block the rest. After this,
Ganon will be defeated.
When fighting Ganondorf, take out the fishing rod. He will drop
his guard and watch the bobber. While his guard is down, take
out your sword and hit him. Repeat this until you can finish him
In the final battle with Ganondorf, after the horse combat section
you can take out your fishing rod at any point. Ganondorf will
be distracted by the earring on the end. He will stare at it,
no matter where it goes. Once you put the rod away, the battle
is on again.
In the final battle, there is not any real trick that you learn
from the Golden Wolf to help you defeat Ganon. All you have to
do is use your auto-aim to lock on to Ganon then move very close
to him so that he tries to kick you. Then, move around him normally
(no need to roll) and hack and slash until he blocks. Repeat the
process of moving around him and slashing until he has been defeated.
Hint: Defeating the Gerudo Temple Boss:
The easiest way to defeat this Boss is to use the spinner
and go along the side of the sand pit he is in the middle of until
you are directly behind him. Hit the "support bone"
which is the spine. To hit the bone you must use the spinner's
attack. Each time more skeletons will come up to block you from
reaching the spine. Luckily they do not regenerate. If you kill
one, the next time you attack there will be a gap in the wall
of skeletons which you can slip through and attack. After you
have done this three or four times the sand drains and the head
of the beast will still remain. Use the spinner to raise the platform.
As you walk out, an intermission sequence of the head coming to
life and knocking Link off the platform plays. You must use the
spinner to climb the platform. After awhile the head will start
shooting fireballs at you while you are climbing. The key here
is to jump from the platform track to the track on the wall every
time he tries to hit you with a fireball. The head will then get
irritated and come in beside you, at which time you can jump and
attack it with the spinner. When on the ground attack the sword
that Zant put in its head. Repeat this two more times and he will
die, then you will get a heart container.
Hint: Defeating the King Bullblin:
After Colin gets kidnapped by the Bullblin, you must
chase down the leader and strike him. It sounds easy but his boar
is very fast. Use boost on Epona a few times to catch up, then
strike him as many times as possible before he gets away. Repeat
this until you joust him. When jousting the King Bullblin boost
two times, then when he gets close, dodge. Try to stay close.
Your timing must be precise. If done correctly you will win in
one or two hits.
Hint: Defeating Lizalfos:
If you have all the skills it should be easy. Use the
shield attack, then Helm Splitter followed by Finishing Blow.
Use the same technique against the helmeted ones.
For armored Lizalfos, take out a bomb and run towards it. Stay
near it, and when you blow up it will instantaneously die.
Hint: Defeating Red Deku Baba:
Do the back spin in a certain time (this is very difficult);
the first slash will decapitate them and the second slash will
Hint: Defeating Redeads:
They will screech at you and you will stop. They will
get a big shot at you. You can either run away or fight them.
When you fight them, make sure they do not see you and start to
use a jump attack. This causes it to flinch slightly. This is
your chance to slash it with insanity until it is defeated. You
can also do it the easy way by hitting them with the ball and
chain. The first hit hurts them pretty hard, and when the ball
comes back it will kill it.
Hint: Defeating Stalchildren:
They travel in dozens. These will die in one shot with
your sword. Spin attack them or use the chargeable jump attack
to take out three to seven on the first hit. The second hit might
take out ten to twenty.
Hint: Defeating Stallord:
Use the following trick for an easy win in the second
stage. After you break Stallord's spine off with your spinner,
the intermission sequence will begin and Stallord will come back
to life as the floating head. When you knock him down, you can
kill him the first time around without having to knock him down
again if you spin attack the Twilight Sword in his head non-stop.
Spin the Analog-stick counter-clockwise and keep pressing
B. Do not charge the spin attack. Do about one or two regular
sword strikes then start spin attacking him. If done correctly,
you can kill Stallord without having to knock him down again.
Hint: Defeating Twili Beasts:
In order to unlock the Canoe mini-game, you must defeat
them as Ordonian Link. Kill the one furthest away. The biggest
threat is trying to kill the others with Ordonian Link. Make sure
they both come after you and use Spin Attack twice. It should
kill them both. If you have "Great Spin" it will be
As Wolf Link, kill the one that is the furthest away, then use
the "Dark Aura" to defeat the other ones
Hint: Defeating Zant:
Zant will go through almost every Boss battle you have
done so far. You must defeat him essentially the same way. The
trick is remembering how you defeated the Boss in the first place.
The final battle against Zant is fairly easy, but he moves erratically.
Block his spin attack and do the rolling attack from behind to
land more hits.
When you are in the Palace Of Twilight and are trying to defeat
Zant, remember all the battlegrounds that you were in and how
you defeated that enemy. For example, in the Forest Temple while
battling the monkey, roll into the poles that Zant is on while
he tries to shoot you. The last battle ends with a sword fight.
Use your hidden skills.
Hint: Defeating Twilight monsters:
The easiest way to defeat them is to kill the one that
is not near you, then use the force field to kill the rest.
Hint: Defeating the Twilight Dragon:
First, use the Double Clawshots and latch onto its
tail when it is not attacking you. Immediately after latching
onto its tail, use the Iron Boots to bring it down so its armor
breaks. After doing this a few more times, he will rip off the
rest of the armor and it starts to rain. The rain brings floating
plants from the ground that circle the battleground. Use the Clawshot
on the plants and circle around the dragon while dodging his flame
attacks. When you are behind him, use the Clawshot onto his back
and attack the jewel with your sword. After one or two more times,
he will be defeated and you will get the last shard of the Twilight
Hint: Defeating heavily armored opponents:
At first you will meet this behemoth as a mini-Boss
in the Temple Of Time. You will see him several times later as
regular monsters. The strategy is the same each time. First, if
you are having trouble timing the dodge to attack him multiple
times, you can just wait and use the Mortal Draw ability when
he gets close enough. Note: This does not work on the mini-Boss
version, but works on every other one. He will lose one piece
of armor every time you hit him with the Mortal Draw. When he
throws his sword away he will begin wielding a smaller sword.
Get close to him, roll behind him, and use the Rising attack (where
you roll around him and rise up from the ground spinning). He
will block the Rising Attack but will become vulnerable to regular
attacks immediately afterwards. Do this three times and he will
Hint: Easy wins:
When you have the Ball And Chain, throw it behind your
enemies. If it hits them on the way back it is very powerful and
should kill them in one hit
When you have the Shield Bash and Helm Splitter, do a Shield Bash
and press A afterwards to do a Helm Splitter. Then, do
a spin move. This is very helpful when you are facing one enemy
and your health is low.
When your health is low and you see a fairy; take out
your bottle and run into the fairy. While the fairy is circling
around, use your bottle. The fairy will not only heal you, but
it will be captured in your bottle.
When you are low on health and are not in the middle of something,
go to Hyrule town. If you have not already do so, complete the
STAR game. This is the game inside the big purple circus tent.
Afterwards, talk to the three girls directly outside. After they
"freak out" about you, three hearts should appear. You
can do this as many times as desired.
Hint: Survive energy balls:
You can use an empty bottle against the energy balls
that the possessed Princess Zelda shoots at you. It will work
the same as the sword. It looks as if Link is punching the energy
ball but it will not hurt him.
Hint: Castle Town: Playing fetch:
Go to Castle Town. Go to the east road. Near the Medical
Center is a bone. Pick up the bone in your human form and walk
down the street south of the Medical Center. Go down for awhile
and you should see a white dog. The dog will follow you. Go back
down the street and to the Medical Center and notice the grass
patch beside it. Throw the bone into the grass patch. If you are
lucky, instead of the bone the dog might bring back a rupee or
a heart. If the dog does not fetch anything, he did not see you
throw it. Try again. Also, you may have to leave town and do it
again for it to occur after doing it once. It probably will not
happen immediately, so keep trying.
Hint: Castle Town: Malo Mart:
Donate 1,000 rupees and complete the Hot Springwater
side quest. Then, donate 200 more rupees to Malo Mart. A new Malo
Mart will open in Castle Town. You can purchase magic armor.
Hint: Cave Of Ordeals: Faster way through:
Use the boomerang on the torches before you drop down
into the room. This will open the door in the next room. You should
only have to actually fight through about five or six rooms.
Hint: Gerudo Desert temple: Rats:
When you are in certain room of the temple and begin
to walk funny (almost as if you have the Iron Boots on), transform
into a wolf and turn on your senses. You will find that little
rats have attached themselves to you. Use the wolf's spin attack
to kill them. Turn back into a human and you will be able to walk
and run normally again.
Hint: Gerudo Desert temple: Skeletons:
When you are in the temple and you come into contact
with the large skeletons that paralyze you when they shriek, continually
roll out of the way just before they hit your paralyzed body with
Hint: Lake Hylia: Fairy box:
Go to Lake Hylia. Start at the spring where the Lanayru
spirit is located. Turn the opposite direction of the waterfall
and walk up the wooden bridge. You will end up in an area where
there is another wooden bridge in front of you. You should be
in an area with three ways to continue, left, straight, and right.
On your right should be a bridge to the cannon man. Go straight,
then there should be a ladder to your left. Climb up that ladder.
Once you get to the top, climb up the small ridge on your left.
There should be a small pond here. In the middle is a floating
box. Pick up the box and break it. There should be a fairy inside.
Note: Any time you leave the lake and return to this location,
the box will reappear and another fairy will be inside. [Screenshot]
Hint: Sacred Grove: Giant puzzle:
At the entrance to the Sacred Grove, you will howl
from a symbol on the ground (resembling the Triforce) to make
two stone giants come to life on a group of blocks. They will
ask you to lead them to their sentry post by hopping on the blocks.
Jump in the following pattern: left, down, right, right, up, left,
up, up, left, down, down, right then finally up. They will congratulate
you and allow you to pass on to the Master Sword.
Getting through the Sacred Grove is not easy, but is much like
the Lost Woods in Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time, in
that you will have subtle hints. When you reach any tunnel, look
to the grass on the other side. If you are moving in the correct
direction there will be bright spots on the ground. If you are
moving in the wrong direction there will be normal lighting.
Hint: Adult Wallet:
The Adult Wallet can be obtained after defeating the
giant Twilight Bug at Lake Hylia. Go to Hyrule Castle Town as
a human and go to the southeast alleyway. Look for a door. Give
the girl inside any Golden Bug you have caught and she will give
you an Adult Wallet, capable of holding 600 Rupees. One golden
bug is outside the south entrance of Castle Town, on the top of
a large vine covered column. Blow up the rocks with a bomb and
a Golden Ladybug will come out. It will resemble a point of light.
Hit it with the boomerang and grab it with A. There are
also two Golden Ants in Kakariko and Kakariko graveyard.
Hint: Giant Wallet:
To get a Giant Wallet that is capable of holding 1,000
rupees, collect all twenty four Golden Bugs and bring them to
Aghita in Castle Town South Road.
Hint: Bomb Bags:
Use the following trick to get another Bomb Bag. You
will need The Zora Armor and Iron Boots. Go to Zora's Domain after
having obtained the Water Bombs and you have teleported the Volcanic
Boulder. Equip the Zora's Armor and the iron Boots. Go all the
way down. Talk to the Zoras. Once in front of the boulder, you
will see some sort of eyes peeking at everyone. Place a bomb near
or over the boulder. You may want to hold it while you stand in
front of it, although it will make you lose some health. After
it explodes, a Goron will appear. Talk to him to receive another
You can get three Bomb Bags, one from Iza's boat ride (played
for the first time), one from the Bomb Shop in Kakiriko, and the
last one at Zora's Domain. To get it, you must find the rock you
used to break the ice when you were a wolf. Go to the throne room
and swim down until you see the rock you used. Blow it up with
a Water Bomb. A Goron will appear and give you a Bomb Bag.
Hint: Get another Bomb Bag:
First you will need The Zora Armor and Iron Boots.
Go to Zora's Domain after having obtained the Water Bombs and
you have teleported the Volcanic Boulder. Equip the Zora's Armor
and the iron Boots. Go all the way down. Talk to the Zoras. Once
in front of the boulder, you will see some sort of eyes peeking
at everyone. Place a bomb near or over the boulder. You may want
to hold it while you stand in front of it, although it will make
you lose some health. After it explodes, a Goron will appear.
Talk to him to receive another Bomb Bag.
Hint: Bigger bomb bags:
Score 25 points playing Iza's boat game by shooting
jars on the way down to Lake Hylia. Yellow jars are worth 1 point
and red jars are worth 2 points. After you score 25 points Iza's
helper will allow you to carry double the bombs in all of your
bomb bags. The amount of bombs in each bag depends on what type
of bombs you are currently holding in each bag.
Hint: Bigger quivers:
Enter the large tent in Southeast Hyrule Castle Town
and play the "STAR" mini-game. If you have the Clawshot,
win level 1 of the mini-game to unblock the Big Quiver, with a
60 arrow capacity. If you have the Double Clawshot, win level
2 of the mini-game to unlock the Giant Quiver, with a 100 arrow
Hint: Bottle with Fairy Tears:
Bring 20 Poe Souls to Jiovani.
Hint: Unlimited Rupees:
Bring 60 Poe Souls to Jiovani.
Hint: Restore health:
If you want more health when low, catch some fish.
You can do this as many times as needed.
Hint: Alternate sword sheathing:
Just after killing a monster, press A to put
away your sword. It will do the same sheathing move as when you
kill a Boss or when you learn a new Hidden Skill.
Hint: Safe fall:
When you are in Ordon. Pick up a chicken and run off
a hill or some other high location. The chicken will flap its
wings and you will be able to hover to the ground.
Hint: Finding IIia:
The last Fused Shadow you will enter Twilight. Then,
jump off a bridge. You will land in water and find the scent of
Hint: Finding Poe Souls:
When trying to find the Poe Souls, look at night. Most
of them can only be found at night or in dark places such as caves.
Their is a Poe on the second floor of The Isle of Riches.
Hint: Poe Soul locations:
All Poes should be searched for at night, with the
exception of the dungeons, Cave of Ordeals, and hidden grottos.
In Link's human form, each Poe can be seen by the blue lantern
it holds. However it can only be destroyed in Link's beast form.
After collecting twenty or more Poes, Jovani will reward you with
a bottle of the Great Fairy's Tears. Collecting 60 Poes will get
you a reward of 200 rupees. From then on, Jovani's cat will then
grant you 200 rupees any time you talk to him. After all Poes
are destroyed, Jovani can be found at Telma's bar. To get back
to Jovani's house, go to the central square of Castle Town, then
go down the south road. Take the first road on the right. In this
"back ally" and on the left, will be his house. In the
front of the house there will be a group of cats that gather.
Use Wolf Link and his senses to find a spot to dig into on the
left side of the house.
1. Your first Poe is on the way on your journey to Hyrule Castle
again. He is found in Jovani's house.
2, 3, 4, 5. Four poes are found in Arbiter's Grounds. They are
part of one of the tasks for the dungeon.
6. Faron Woods. This Poe is lurking in the Poisonous Swamp.
Using Midna and Wolf Link, jump across the platforms to encounter
7. Sacred Grove. This Poe can be found up on a stump. Look for
an area with a small pool of water, and a waterfall. To get him,
go behind this waterfall.
8. Sacred Grove. Go to the area where you first had to defeat
the Skull Kid (for access to the Master Sword). Blow up the boulder
in the middle of this area and a Poe should be exposed.
9. Sacred Grove. In the area that you obtained the Master Sword,
you will find this Poe.
10. Hyrule Field. As soon as you leave Faron woods, go to the
small bridge above a small stream of water straight ahead. A Poe
can be found lurking in this area.
11. Kakariko Village. A Poe can be found floating around,
up above Barnes' bomb shop, near the wreckage of the house that
you had to blow up earlier as Wolf Link.
12. Kakariko Village. This next Poe can be found going up a bit
more from the ruins of the house, up near the watchtower (where
Talo now keeps watch). He will be directly in front of the door
to the watchtower.
13. Kakariko Village. Go to the graveyard behind the village sanctuary.
This Poe will be floating around here.
14. Kakariko Village. There is another Poe in the graveyard. Open
up a gravestone to reveal him.
15. Death Mountain. Start moving up Death Mountain and go over
to the second Goron you see. Use him to toss you up to the cliff
left of where he stands. Up on this cliff will be a Poe.
16. Kakariko Gorge. Coming out of Kakariko Village, after crossing
the bridge, go to your right up a hill. Here you should find a
Poe wandering around a tree up on this hill.
17. Kakariko Gorge. After collecting the above Poe, go to the
opposite side of where you are. Look for a boulder along the wall.
Blow it up to reveal a hidden lantern cavern. Make sure that your
lantern is full. Searching this hidden lantern cavern completely,
you should encounter the Poe.
18. Hidden Village. Entering the hidden village, look to the right
to see this Poe on the upper front balcony. Use a net that is
hanging from the same platform he is on. Use your Clawshot to
bring yourself up to him.
19. Hyrule Field. Take the Great Bridge of Hylia from Lanayru
to Faron Province. Looking at your map now, after you have crossed
the bridge, and made that stretch of the land, this Poe will be
up on a high ledge on the southeast wall, to your right. This
ledge will be before you take some twists and turns to get into
Faron. Use your bomb arrows to blow up a few boulders and then
use the Clawshot pads that are revealed to get up to him.
20, 21, 22. Lake Hylia. These three Poes are found in another
lantern cavern. On your map, a Howling Stone can be located in
the southwest part of the lake. Climb up to the howling stone.
Note: As soon as you come up from the ladder, the Howling Stone
should be on your right. Look in the opposite direction of the
stone; you should see a boulder in the wall, just as in Kakariko
Gorge. Blow up this boulder to reveal this cavern. Search the
cavern completely to find them all. Also, before entering, make
sure to have enough oil in your lantern and some, if not all,
empty bottles because this one is much longer. There will be some
Yellow Chu Chus inside that you can use as refills if needed.
23. Lake Hylia. While playing the Flight-by-Fowl game atop Lake
Hylia, float down to the floating platform in the middle of the
lake. A Poe is waiting on one of the lower platforms.
24. Lake Hylia. Coming out of the Spirits cave, go to the right
until you find a patch of land. A Poe wanders around here. On
your map, he is in the east area of Lake Hylia.
25. Lake Hylia. Use the warp portal to warp to the lake, then
turn around to see several platforms. Jump across them to get
to a Poe that is on the land to the back.
26. Lake Hylia. If you go to the lookout tower, where Auru was
located (the one that helped you get to the desert). There is
a Poe floating around at the base of this tower.
27. Lake Hylia. To find your last Poe here, go back up to the
Flight-by-Fowl game challenge. After getting about half way down,
make a U-turn to find a small platform sticking out of the wall
under the game house. Your Poe will be here.
28. Zora's Domain. Warp to the Zora Domain throne room. Upon leaving
the throne room, jump down the waterfall. Swim to your left to
the area where you had to catch a Reekfish. A Poe can be found
up on the little hill here. A Golden Bug should also be near.
29. Zora's Domain. Go over to where the entrance to Snowpeak is
located. Using Wolf Link and Midna, jump up a short distance until
you are behind the main waterfall to find your Poe.
30. Zora's River. Coming out of Zora's Domain and into Zora's
River, to your right is a small grassy hill. On it, you will see
31. Hyrule Field. In the land north of Hyrule Castle, there is
a stone bridge. On this bridge will be a Poe.
32, 33. Hyrule Field. In the same area as the Poe above, go to
the eastern part of the land until you find two trees. In between
those two trees should be a patch of dirt. Use Wolf Link and his
senses to dig in and capture the two Poes inside.
34. Hyrule Field. Going through Castle Town, use the eastern exit
to find a Poe out on the bridge.
35. Hyrule Field. Go through Castle Town again and exit through
the south. Near the pool of water will be another Poe to capture.
36. Hyrule Field. Going through Castle Town once more, exit through
the west. Coming out to this field, go to the path farthest to
your left. This path will lead you to the ruined stone lookout.
Here, in the same area that you found a statue for Shad, will
be a Poe.
37. Gerudo Mesa. Use Fyer's cannon blast to send you flying
to the Gerudo Mesa. After landing, start moving to your left.
You should catch sight of a Poe in the distance on a small platform.
38. Gerudo Mesa. In the enemy encampment, go over to where you
had to battle King Bulblin (and afterwards where he temporarily
trapped you in by fire). You can find a Poe around the place where
you fought him.
39. Gerudo Mesa. Before you enter the temple of Arbiter's Grounds,
to your left is a Poe floating about.
40. Gerudo Mesa. In the northeastern most part of the desert,
there is platform with a tree on top. Use your Clawshot and hook
the tree to get up onto the platform and up to your Poe.
41, 42. Gerudo Mesa. In the same location as the Poe above, use
Wolf Link's senses to dig into an underground grotto to find these
43. Gerudo Mesa. Go to the southwestern part of the desert, to
the location where the missing piece of the Bridge of Eldin was
found. If you have not yet brought back the missing piece to the
bridge, do so, then afterwards warp back to the Gerudo Mesa. Around
where the missing piece was should be a Poe wandering about.
44, 45, 46. Cave of Ordeals. These three can be found in the Cave
of Ordeals. In the same location as above, and after collecting
the Poe, go down the stairs that lead to this cave. The first
Poe in here will be on the 17th floor. The second is found on
the 33rd floor. The last Poe is on the 41st floor. You will have
need all of your quest items in order to get through the cave
completely. When you obtain the Double Clawshot you will be good
47. Gerudo Mesa. Back at the Gerudo Mesa, go to the beginning
of the path that leads to the enemy encampment. Note: You should
not be in the enemy encampment itself. Go down the path to your
left. Do not take any other turns. Just continue following this
path until it leads to a dead end, which is where the Poe lurks.
48. Snowpeak. Upon going up the mountain, you should encounter
some large rocks. This Poe is hiding about these rocks.
49. Snowpeak. This Poe will be on the first cliff up the mountain.
Entering Snowpeak Mountain, and after jumping the pieces of ice
in the water, look up and to the left to see a lone tree in the
distance. Go up towards it, watching the tree as you go up the
steep slope. After going up the steep cliff, take a left to get
to this tree and to the Poe.
50. Snowpeak. After climbing up a bit more, take a right at the
next "Y". In open an area with a few trees is the Poe,
along with some Bat Keese.
51. Snowpeak Cave. Once you dig into the cave, a Poe is hiding
in the left boulder of ice that you will see. You will need the
Ball and Chain to get him out and capture him.
52. Snowpeak. After snowboarding down the hill against the Yeto,
turn around and you should see a hill to the left. Go over there
as Wolf Link and start going up the winding pathway that will
lead up to a Poe on top. Be careful not to fall off while battling
53. In this temple you will find your first Poe in the middle
of the foyer.
54. Your next Poe will be found in a room that is all ice. On
the second floor, go to the southeast room. Against one of the
walls should be some chunks of ice to break with the Ball and
Chain, after which a Poe (along with some Keese), will reveal
55. The last Poe is back at the entrance. You will need the Ball
and Chain to get to him. As soon as you enter, to your left and
right will be suits of armor. Smash open a middle one to reveal
Temple Of Time
56. You will find your first Poe here after you pass through
the doors from the Sacred Grove to the entrance to the Temple
Of Time. In this room, coming down the stairs, take a U-turn to
your left. Using the Dominion Rod, move the owl statue that you
see to let this Poe out, then take him down.
57. Go to the third floor, with the room with the huge rotating
platform in the middle. Go to the west side of the room. You should
find a yellow gate that a Poe is behind. Bring one of the small
statues atop the walls on either side of the gates. Hit the switch
behind the gate to let the Poe out.
58. On the sixth floor is your next Poe. It is the room with the
large scale against a wall. Use the scale, and with the small
statues, make one side bring you up as high as it can go. Use
your Clawshot to hook onto a Clawshot pad in the middle of the
ceiling, then walk the path to some spinner tracks on the wall.
With these tracks, go to the right and it will bring you around
to a platform that a Poe waits at.
City In The Sky
59. In an outer area on the third floor is your first Poe.
Use the flying plants above and hook on with your Clawshot to
get you over two walls. Look to the south to an open area where
you should see another flying plant above near you. Hook onto
this plant that will bring you to another small lone area. Drop
down to the area where your Poe lurks.
60. Go to the fourth floor. In the outer area of where you obtained
the Boss Key, a Poe is waiting atop a platform. Use some wall
vines and the tightropes to get over to him. Be careful not to
fall off the edge when trying to capture him. Finish him off and
you will have completed your Poe hunt.
Hint: Catching Fairies:
Take the broken piece of the bridge back to its original
place. You can then come back to that location and go down the
stairs to find a secret Fairy Temple. You will go through a series
of battles with all of the enemies that you have encountered.
You will need the Spinner, the Hookshot, and the Metal Chain Ball
to get past certain points. You will also need the Dominion Rod.
Once you have gone past these tests, talk to the Fairy Queen.
She will tell you that she has released her Fairies to each of
the Spirit Lakes. In order to catch these Fairies in a bottle,
walk under the fairy and wait until it lands on your head. Then,
scoop your bottle.
Hint: Talk to Epona:
When you able to become both human and wolf, go to
a patch of "Horse Calls" as a wolf. Press A to
howl. Howl the song as indicated with blue lines, and Epona will
come to you. Still as a wolf, go up to Epona and talk to her.
She tell you to hurry up and turn back into a human.
Hint: See Epona's shoes:
Ride Epona to the hill in Ordon. Then, look up after
making sure her front feet are off the ledge. Note: This will
not work unless you are under her feet.
To get free arrows. find an enemy that shoots arrows
at you (usually fire arrows). Keep dodging them. After the arrows
that were fired at you hit the ground you can retrieve them. You
may only have a few seconds to do this. Repeat this until you
have the desired amount of arrows.
Hint: Hylian Loach:
You must first get the Frog Lure or Sinking Lure. To
get the Frog Lure, you must complete the Roalgoal mini-game. To
catch the Loach, go to the northern-most cove during the summer.
Cast the Frog or Sinking Lure in the lily pads. As soon as he
bites the fight is on. Landing it is the most difficult part.
It is possible to catch and find the Hylian Loach. It more difficult
with the Sinking Lure because it sinks, gets stuck in the mud,
and you will lose it. Also some times people will use it in front
of Hena and get it taken away. First, make sure you have the Frog
Lure (obtained from the Rollgoal mini-game next to the door).
Then, go to the fishing hole and go inside Hena's. Do not roll
in here. You might scare the fish or cause problems with Hena.
Once you catch the Loach, you get your picture taken and it will
get put up on the wall. Go to Hena and ask her if you can go fishing
by yourself. Always fish by yourself when catching the Hylian
Loach. Make sure it is summer by looking at the trees. They are
green in the summer. There will be a little indent in the map
where there is a little cove on the northern part of the fishing
hole. Go there and find the lilies. Next, use your Frog lure and
cast away. The loach looks like an Ordon Catfish but has blue
eyes and red fins.
In the Zora Temple, find the room where you get the Boss key.
There will be Skull Fish and two Hylian Loaches. Be careful not
to catch a Skull Fish as they just take up bait.
Places to catch Hylian Loaches are as follows.
1. Fishing Pond by the Lilypads.
2. Kakariko Graveyard by the Zoran Grave.
3. Lake Hylia were the Poe was found. Use your senses and dig
at any black spots.
4. Up by the northeastern part of Hyrule Field. Use your senses
and dig at any black spots.
Hint: Hylian Shield:
When you complete the Goron Temple and free Hyrule
from the Twilight, go to Hyrule Town. Go to the southwest side
of the town square. Enter the building there. Immediately when
you enter, you should see a Goron standing there. Talk to him.
He will thank you for saving their mines. He will then ask if
you would like to buy the Hylian Shield for about 120 rupees.
When your in the Goron mines go to the village beneath it. Then
go to Huryle Field. The postman will soon run up to you, giving
you a letter that describes the Hylian Shield. The general store
in the village beneath Death Mountain (Goron mines) has the shield
for 200 rupees.
After obtaining the lantern, go back to Link's house.
Climb down into the basement. Take out your lantern and look around
the area of the chest with the purple rupee to find a mirror.
Switch to first person mode to see Link's reflection.
Hint: Sinking Lure:
Go to the fishing hole. Catch and keep the following
fish: Hylian Pike, Hylian Bass, and an Ordonian Catfish. Once
you acquire these three fish, leave the fishing hole and re-enter
it to save the stats of the fish. Do not warp out or you will
not keep the fish in the tank. Next, get the Coral Earring. This
can be found by meeting Ashei and retrieving the Drawing Of The
Beast. Take this drawing to the Zora Child who is standing next
to his father's grave behind the cemetery in Kakariko Village.
He then will give you the Coral Earring. After you acquire the
earring, go the fishing hole and follow the path to the right.
Cross the bridge where you retrieved the Empty Bottle and go as
far north as possible. Once you get to the fishing bank, take
out your fishing pole and face north. Cast your line and in a
few attempts you should have the long awaited Sinking Lure. Note:
Do not use this lure while fishing with Hena. She will take it
away from you. If you dare to use it, just go over to where you
acquired it before and you will be able to attain this lure again.
Hint: Skeleton Fish:
In the Zora Temple, once you have dived into the pool
with the fish inside, take out the fishing pole (bait works faster).
Cast into the water and you will soon catch a fish that will not
be recorded because it is forbidden.
Hint: Fortune teller:
When you get your fortune told, the person who tells
your fortune says something twice, backwards. You can prove it
by pressing the "Home" button and looking at it. For
Career: What am I thinking about?
Love: Wait... loading takes awhile.
Hint: Blue Chu Jelly:
In the first actual room of Lakebed Temple, there will
be blue Chu Jelly. You can collect this as many times as desired,
as long as you leave the temple each time before you get it again.
Hint: Orange Chu Jelly:
If you kill a orange slug thing, scoop it. If you drink,
it will replenish eight hearts. Do not waste it; it is as valuable
as a fairy.
Hint: Rare Chu Jelly:
The Rare Chu Jelly (golden and sparkling) can be found
in various places (for example, in the Snowpeak area). This is
very valuable Chu jelly because it restores all of your hearts
and also temporarily increases your attack strength.
As the name implies, it is rare and only shows up in a few locations,
such as the overhang of rocks near the bridge on the Lanayru province.
However, it also only appears once in a long while. If you see
it but miss your chance to get some of the valuable jelly because
it combined with another Chu, simply leaving and coming back will
not make the rare jelly reappear. Either continue with a game,
complete a temple or two, or try resetting the game.
Hint: Easy Lantern Oil:
Get an empty bottle and go to the shop close to the
Forest Temple run by the bird. Go inside and take some. Walk out
he will ask to be paid. Do not pay. The next time you come back
and go inside, he will call you a thief. Quickly take more items
before he can peck you. Note: The peck only does one quarter of
a heart of damage.
After obtaining an Empty Bottle you can get as much Red Potion
and Lantern Oil for as cheap as 0 rupees (the unsafe way) or 1
rupee (the easy and safe way). Go to the small shop near the Forest
Temple run by the talking bird. You can scoop up whichever item
desired. If you do not wish to pay, run. If you are not fast enough
he attacks you repeatedly, then when you return he calls you a
thief and may attack you again. However, if you want to use the
safer method, grab as much as you desire, then walk over to the
box besides the bird. Only pay 1 rupee no matter what the price
was. He will make a comment about how cheap you are getting it
for, but will not attack.
Kill a Yellow Chu then immediately afterwards pull out your lantern
and scoop up the jelly to fill it to the brim.
Go to the shop that the bird runs in North Faron Woods. Get what
you want from the shop and put 1 rupee in the box. If you do not,
he will call you a thief and you will not be able to go in there
without paying. He will call you a cheapskate, but you will have
gotten a Lantern Oil and/or Red Potion for 1 rupee.
Have a bottle that is empty. This must be done before you complete
the Forest Temple. Fill the bottle with red potion/lamp oil and
leave. Note: The bird will attack you until you are away from
the area that it is in.
Hint: Easy rupees:
In Kakariko Village, after you can change into a wolf
whenever desired, and after you can make bomb arrows, turn into
a wolf and jump on top of the big building with the giant bell
on top. Shoot the bell with a Bomb Arrow to get a silver rupee
(worth 200 rupees).
To find a silver rupee worth 200 rupees, you need the bow combined
with bombs. Warp or go to Kakariko Village. At the top of the
Shaman;s house is a giant bell. Aim the bow to the inside of the
it and shoot. You can see it clearly with the Hawk Mask that you
can buy at Malo's Mart. A kind of light will fall from the inside
and stays on the roof of the house. To get it you must go where
no one can see you and transform into a wolf. At the side of the
house there is a hand-cart. Get over it and Midna will help you
to jump to the top of the house to take the rupee.
After you have filled your third Vessel Of Light and are again
in human form, proceed to the Howling Stone high up on the cliff
by Lake Hylia (the one you could not reach as a wolf). Behind
it is a bombable wall leading into a cave. Bomb the wall and go
in. Make sure to have plenty of bombs and lantern oil. Bomb the
walls all around the cave to find enough rupees to fill your wallet.
When using the Flight By Fowl you will use a Cucco to fly around
Lake Hylia and get rupees. However the main focus is on the Isle
Of Riches which is only accessible by the Flight By Fowl. Each
floor has a special prize and each can be accessed by a floor
higher than it. Note: If you are in Lake Hylia, this game is only
accessible by Fyers big cannon launch thing. The following is
a list of the floors and their prizes:
Largest Floor: Nothing
Second Floor: 10 Rupees
Third Floor: 20 Rupees
Fourth Floor: 50 Rupees
Fifth Floor: Heart container
Grand Prize (rotating floor): 100 Rupees
Exit Castle Town through the south gate. Climb the pillar to the
left. At the top is a circle of rocks. Turn into a wolf and dig
in the middle. You will drop into a cave filled with water with
two small islands on each side. Kill the enemies for a chest,
then knock down the bee hive for bait. You can catch record breaking
Pike and Greengills here and nearly every other cast can yield
a bag of rupees. It is possible to fill your wallet here.
Go to Lake Hylia to play the little bird's mini-game where you
pop the fruit balloons. Get a perfect score by getting everything
at the beginning (you should have 24 points) then just hit all
twenty strawberries to get a silver rupee.
In Kakariko Village, shoot the bell on top of the sanctuary with
bomb arrows. Turn into a wolf and climb up it. You will see a
silver rupee there.
There is also a dog and bone near the Castle Town west gate. If

doctor's house, and the dog tries to get it, but will instead
come back with a rupee. You can do this as many times as desired.
After you have completed Lakebed Temple, go to Kakariko Village.
Transform into a wolf and go to the top of the sanctuary. Turn
back into a human, get a Bomb Arrow, and shoot it into the center
of the bell. A silver rupee will drop to the ground.
Go to any place that has a lot of birds flying around (for example,
the bridge over Lake Hylia). Kill all the birds with your bow
and arrow. When all of them are killed, a number of rupees of
different values will fall to the ground.
Once you have the Zora Armor and can dive into deep water, jump
into the water in the center of Zora's throne room. Lift up the
small rocks on the bottom and around the area to find high value
rupees. Four or five rocks have yellow rupees (worth ten green
rupees), a couple have blue rupees (worth five green rupees),
and one has a red rupee (worth twenty green rupees). Rise to the
surface and exit the throne room. Then, go back into the throne
room and dive back in to find the now respawned rupees. This is
a fast way to fill your wallet.
Go to Death Mountain and a Goron will ask if you want to climb
on. Say "Yes", and continue following the path. A second
Goron will asked you the same thing. Say "Yes" and look
to the right. When you arrive, grab the rock. a red rupee (worth
20 rupees) will appear . Continue following the path and grab
the other rocks. Each one will have a red rupee. You can do this
many times as desired.
In the Fishing Hole, you can chop all of the grass to get rupees.
You can get anywhere from 50 to 80 rupees. You can repeat this
as many times as desired.
In the Water Temple, go to the area where you obtained the Boss
key. In the uppermost section of where you get the Boss key there
should be several pots. Three of the pots have yellow rupees in
them, and another one should have a blue rupee. The rupees in
that particular area respawn. Continue entering and exiting the
area until you have the desired amount of rupees.
Hint: Heart Piece locations:
In Castle Town, the fortune teller to the south will
provide you with all of the Heart Piece locations for 10 rupees
When you are a wolf, go to Lake Hylia and play the song that gets
Plumm near you. Talk to him and he will tell you the game will
start when you take flight. Play the song again and a giant Twilight
bird will come pick you up. Get 10,000 points by hitting only
the red ones and get a big combo (shown in the lower right screen).
When you finish, he will give you a Heart Piece. If you do it
again and surpass your high score, Plumm will give you 100 rupees.
Hint: Easy hearts:
When you defeat the Boss of the Yeti's place, the two
yetis will hug. About 300 hearts will appear. Each time you talk
to them another one comes out.
When you are low on hearts, go to any spring whose spirit you
have returned (for example, Ordona's spring in Ordon). Walk around
in the spring for awhile and your hearts will slowly fill up.
Alternately, you can go to the Hot Springs at Death Mountain to
regain lost hearts.
Go to Hyrule Town after you get rid of the Twilight. Go to the
west side of town. There will be a bone. Go south and you will
find a dog. It will follow you. Throw the bone in the alley way
and the dog will come out with ether a heart or rupee.
In Hyrule Castle Town, after you defeat the Star mini-game for
the first time, talk with the three girls outside of the tent.
They will fall in love with Link, and one heart will drop from
Hint: Get berated by Malo:
Malo is the little child who resembles an infant or
toddler, but is in fact probably one of the smartest children
in Hyrule. He is so smart that he tends to make fun of everyone
When your showing everyone how to use the sword and the slingshot
listen to this child's response.
When you find him in Kakariko Village, enter his shop he will
say rude things to you.
When you are showing off your archery skills to the children,
cancel. He will ask if you need more arrows. Say no and he will
ask if you want to give up. Select "I am no quitter".
He will then quickly respond with some snide comment about how
slow you are.
Also after the store is closed in Kakariko Village, come back
at certain times of the night. Before morning, he will leave comments
on his door.
Hint: Make Midna mad:
When you are restoring items such as the bridge in
Kakariko Gorge, the fountain in Zora's Domain and the bridge north
of East Hyrule, go to each of these items. Then, warp somewhere
besides where the location should be. She will get frustrated
with you and will yell at you.
Hint: Purdy says rude things:
When you are at the fishing hole, go into Hena's cabin.
Press C-stick Up to look at the bird cage by the fish tank.
Hena will tell you that Purdy, the bird, sometimes says things.
Stay still by the cage and wait until the action "Speak"
appears and press A. Purdy will say something to you. This
will continue if you just remain still. If you roll into the cage,
Purdy will call you rude.
Hint: Playing fetch:
In Castle Town after entering the gate to the east,
go south as if traveling to Agitha's house. There is a brown and
white dog laying by a tree near a bone. Pick up the bone and throw
it. The dog will run to get it then bring it back for you to throw
Hint: Bellbuster faceplant:
To do a Bellbuster, go to a high place. For example,
go to Lake Hylia and pay Falbi the Cucco person. Stand on the
edge, turn around, and set a bomb. Turn back around and wait for
Hint: Dragging chickens underwater:
Go to any place with water and chickens. You can throw
the chicken in the water then use the Iron Boots to sink to the
bottom. Then, use your Clawshot and bring the chicken to you.
The chicken does not do anything special when under the water.
Hint: Faster spin attack:
Take out your sword and press the Analog-stick Forward.
While doing that, hold B and stop pressing Analog-stick.
While B is held the spin should be faster.
Hint: Strange looking Malo:
Whenever you get the Slingshot or Bow and arrow, look
for Malo. He is the child that resembles a little infant. Pull
out either of these objects and stand in front of him. Shoot him
with it. He will pull his head back and say nothing. Alternately,
when you defeat the Darbus from Death Mountain go back into Kakariko
Village and find Malo. He is up on one of the higher ledges scouting
the area for monsters. He will ask if you can show him how to
use a bow. Say yes and you will be brought down next to Malo for
instructions. Turn your camera but do not move yourself and look
at Malo. His eyes will make him look like a child from a horror
Hint: Invisible sprinkler system:
When you finish restoring Darbus back to normal, go
over to the bomb shop and enter the building. Find and stand next
to Barnes. Take out your lantern and he will quickly tell you
to put it out. Then, stand somewhere else out of sight of him.
He will stomp the ground and spray water all over you. It does
not matter where you are in the building. You will always get
water sprayed on you if you pull out your lantern.
Hint: Scared soldiers:
Go to Castle Town as Wolf Link and cause an uproar
in the square. Soldiers will come out to fend you off, but they
will cower if you get close. Let them surround you and wait for
them to get close. Then, use your dark field to do a special spin
attack. This will scare the soldiers away and make them drop arrows,
rupees, or hearts.
Hint: Alternate backflip from Epona:
Use the following trick to backflip off Epona without
having to hold R. Note: This will may result in some damage
and may require a few attempts. When you are in Hyrule Field with
all of the people riding the huge hogs, let them run into you
while sitting still so that you are just hanging off the side
of Epona. Immediately after you get back up, press A and
Link will automatically backflip off Epona.
Hint: Make day and night appear faster:
Stand in an area without moving. Notice that time will
be very slow between day and night. If you move and do things,
it will move a bit faster. If you want day or night to appear
a lot faster, do a combination of moving and warping. You will
notice the effect happening faster.
At night, go to Lake Hylia and go into the Sky Temple Cannon (if
available) and blast into the sky. Then, go to the downward cannon
and blast down. It will than be instantly be daytime.
Hint: Resume game easily:
When in a dungeon and you save and turn off the game,
when the game is resumed you normally have to go through the entire
dungeon again to get back to the room where you left off. To avoid
this, before you save use your Ooccoo and warp out. Then, save
and turn off the game. When you turn it back on, use your Ooccoo
again. You will be in the room where you left off.

Hint: Midna panics for no reason:
Go to Snowpeak and walk on soft, deep snow. Link will
start moving with difficulty because his legs sink into the snow.
Change into wolf form. Your legs will still be sunken into the
snow, and Midna will panic as if you were on quicksand or covered
by bugs or ghost rats.
Hint: Defeating Yeta on snowboard:
After Snowpeak Ruins, warp back to where you first
met Yeto. Talk to Yeta, and challenge her. She is much faster,
and she gets the shortcut - after the trees, stay on the left
Gamecube or right Wii and jump. Watch out, because there are many
gaps here. If she gets too close to you, hit her with your sword
to slow her down. Defeat her and you will get a Piece of Heart.
Hint: Wii version differences:
On the Gamecube, Link will hold his sword in his left
hand. On the Wii Link holds it in his right hand. The map is also
opposite from that on the Wii.
Hint: Mario series reference:
There is a Bullet Bill on Fyer's left arm.
The Legend of Tyler.
At Jovani's house there are various pictures over the room. The
one to his right resembles a Fighter Fly from the arcade game
Hint: Zelda: Ocarina Of Time
The three spirits that watch over Hyrule are a
reference to the goddesses in Zelda: Ocarina Of Time. Their
names are similar.
In the house in the fishing hole, there are pictures on the wall.
The one on the far left is that of the fisherman from Zelda:
Ocarina Of Time.
After looking at the picture of the master fisherman in the fishing
house, look at Hena (the girl at the counter). She is trying to
itch an impossible spot on her back, just like the fisherman did
in Zelda: Ocarina Of Time. Also, below the picture is a
pile of books describing the Hylian Loach.
The songs that are played during the game (for example, the hidden
skills and when you call for your horse or summon a bird), are
the songs that you play in Zelda: Ocarina Of Time.
When wearing the Zora Armor, if you look closely, The Zora Sapphire
is used as a brooch on the armor.
There are many paintings hanging on the walls of Snowpeak Ruins.
They are all places of Hyrule, such as the goats from Ordon and
the access to Temple of Time's Chamber of Time.
Hint: The Legend Of Zelda
After Midna destroys the barrier around Hyrule
Castle, go to the Goron shop in Castle Town. On the balcony at
the top of the stairs, talk to the Goron that is selling arrows.
He says that they had been blind and such, then says, "Yes.
It's a secret to everyone". This is a reference to the original
The Legend Of Zelda on the NES.
Hint: The Legend Of Zelda: Majora's
The Skull Kid leading you to the Sacred Grove is
a reference to the Skull Kid in The Legend Of Zelda: Majora's
Mask and Zelda: Ocarina Of Time.

Glitch: Link's shadow on table:
Inside of Rusl and Uli's house (Ordona) there is a
table to the left. Walk around it and you will see Link's shadow
appearing on top of the table instead of the floor. [Screenshot]
Glitch: Wrong shadowing:
When you are in wolf form before you get the ability
to transform at will, look at your shadow while in the "light"
world. It shows Midna riding you, but Midna is not there.
Glitch: Snowpeak door:
Note: You can do this easier if you have the portal
to Snowpeak. You must be in wolf form in order for this to work.
Warp or walk all the way up to the part at Snowpeak with Yeto
standing by the tree. Turn around and go to the wall just slightly
to the right of the door with Yeto's hand prints on it. Keep going
left until you barely reach the edge of the door and it reads
"A Open". If done correctly, you will be standing in
one location with the door wide open but will be acting as if
nothing happened. Link will be panting and Midna will tell him
to move like "Hup, Hup."
Glitch: Grappled to air:
During the Twilight Dragon fight, when you get up to
the tower, immediately skip the intermission sequence. There should
be no Boss fight music. Then, start grappling up the gates as
if you were on the second stage of the Boss. When the Boss gets
close enough to Z-target, grapple him and immediately put on your
boots. This may require several attempts. You will end up hooked
onto nothing, but will fly around with the Dragon. You will not
be able to drop off, but you can look around at the buildings.
Glitch: Hylian Loach picture:
Catch a Hylian Loach in the fishing hole while lure
fishing (fishing in the canoe) then go to Henna's house. She will
have taken a picture of you with the Hylian Loach and it will
be on the wall. Regardless of what weapon, shield, or armor you
were wearing, the picture will show you with a shield, the Ordon
sword, and the regular tunic.
Glitch: Master Sword color:
Enter the basement of your house in Ordan village.
Use the lantern to find the mirror in the basement. Look in it
and put the lantern out. You will see a dark reflection of yourself.
Pause game play. If you do not have the Master Sword equipped,
equip it before resuming the game. The reflection will be the
same, except the Master Sword will not be black like the rest
of the reflection. It will be normal.
Glitch: Oocca flies through wall:
Go to the City in the Sky. Find the big circular room
with the giant fans that try to blow you out of the holes in the
wall. Take an Oocca to a ledge that is next to a fan. Throw the
Oocca into the fan just as it starts blowing. If done correctly,
the Oocca will try to fly back in, but will get pushed back by
the fan each time. If you run to the far side of the ledge away
from the fan, the Oocca will fly through the wall and land back
on the ledge.
Glitch: Invisible wall:
Go to the room directly below the room with the big
key in the City in the Sky. Defeat the enemies, then pick up their
armor. Try to throw it at the fan. It will hit an invisible wall,
though you can carry it onto the fan (but turn it off first).
Also, in that same room, grab a jar. Throw it into the fan after
turning it off. It will break in mid air. If you try to carry
it to the fan, you will not be able to go through the invisible
Glitch: Invisible fishing pole:
This glitch requires the fishing pole and the Twilight
Mirror. Go into the Mirror Chamber. Look into the mirror on the
side facing the huge rock. You should see your reflection. Take
out your fishing pole and look back into the mirror. Your hands
will be in a position as if you are holding the fishing pole,
but nothing will be there. [Screenshot]
Also, your fishing pole has no shadow. [Screenshot]
Note: You do not need all the pieces to the mirror; just the one
piece that is built in.
Glitch: Midna's shadow:
Note: This trick only works if there is still twilight
left in Hyrule. As Wolf Link, warp to an area that has no twilight.
Look at Wolf Link's shadow. You can see that Midna is on Link's
shadow's back, but not on Link. She even does her normal movements
in the shadow, such as yawning, patting Link's back, and looking
Glitch: Shaded Master Sword:
In Link's house, there is a basement that should have
a chest with 50 rubies in it. Go to the northeast part of the
basement. Take out your lamp to find a mirror. Then, put away
your lamp and look at the mirror in first person view. You should
see Link's eyes and the Master Sword. Note: If you equip the Ordon
Sword in first person view then go back to the game and switch
back to the Master Sword, the sword will be its normal color and
Glitch: Underwater beehive:
If you have the Zora armor, Iron Boots, and Clawshot,
go to any grotto that has water and a beehive in it. Go underwater.
Aim your Clawshot above the water and snatch the beehive. The
beehive and the bees will enter the water, and be in your hands
for a moment. Even though you are underwater, you will hear the
bees. The hive will then float to the surface of the water and
the bees will disappear. Do not break the hive while it is in
the water if you want the bee larvae, because if the remnants
are underwater, you cannot use your bottle.
Glitch: Midna has no reflection:
Go to your house's basement. Go to the mirror and turn
into a wolf. If you use your senses, you can see your image reflected
on the mirror, but not Midna's.
