Unlockable Elemental Arrows
The Elemental Arrows in Ocarina of Time are useful (and the Light Arrows are essential) in completing the game. Below is where, and how, you unlock them:
Fire Arrows: To get the Fire Arrows, you need to stand on the platform above the Water Temple entrance, or just in front of it. Shoot a plain arrow at the sun as it just begins to rise. You can then go to the island in the lake where the arrow lands to collect the upgrade. Note: You can either complete the Water Temple to fill up Lake Hylia, or you can use the Song of Storms to 'fill' it. You need to shoot your arrow at the sun before the rain stops, however. You can then collect the arrow using Scarecrow's Song and the Longshot.
Ice Arrows: Complete Gerudo's Training Ground to unlock Ice Arrows.
Light Arrows: Complete every temple and speak to Sheik for your reward.
