You know the mysterious pond that upgrades your boomerange and sheild, it fills magic and hearts. For magic throw in an ice or fire rod, for heats, throw in the master sword.(I only tried it with the lv 2 sword)By the way if you don't know where the mysterious pond is, go to the wishin well thing where you get more bombs or arrows, you go down in the whirpool and then you go strait up into a waterfall. And if you don't know where the wishing well is then you go to Lake Hylia and swim a way. If you don't know where Lake Hylia is, I can't help you it's too easy to find.
When you need more hearts filled, try hitting some trees. You have to have the pegasus shoes. Just run & hit a tree! Sometimes you will get a fairy, sometimes apples- each apple fills 1 missing heart. But also, sometimes you will get a grove of bees or jewels or other things. Good luck!
this actually only works on the virtual console and original SNES version but im posting it anyway. In 1990 nintendo had a contest and the winner got thier name in a game. A person called Chris Houlihan won and his name was in this game. To find it start a game at the sanctuary and use the pegasus boots to dash to the secret shrub entrance east of hyrule castle. Instead of the usual you will be in a room of rupees with a message from Chris on the wall.
To dig in several spots at one time you need: the shovel, magic bomerang, and an open area once you have all these things you throw your magic bomerang..... once it reaches it's max distance press select and equip your shovel and after you close the menu emediatly press A to dig and there will be holes dug all the way along the path the bomerang returns to you in you may have to try this a couple of times until you can do it right.
P.S. This is a good trick to use when looking for hearts and magic potions.
Hi, It's me Creepglitch again. There was something I forgot to mention about my "Frozen foes" glitch in the hint section. I used that glitch on the SNES version of "A link to the past" and perhaps it doesn't work in the GBA version. If I doesn't work on GBA, then I'm really sorry.
Note that this only works on Buzz Blobs, the jelly-like green enemies that electrocute you when you touch them. It also works in The Legend of Zelda: Link's awakening, Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons by the way. First you'll need Magic Powder. Sprinkle it on a Buzz Blob and it will transform into a weird creature you can speak with and they'll always say some weird stuff. Be careful though, touching them will still hurt you!
Ok, find an enemy, any enemy that can be frozen. Freeze the enemy with either the Ether medallion or the ice rod ( I would prefere an enemy that stalks Link ).
When he's frozen solid select the boomerang. Throw it UPWARDS. While the boomerang is away, lift up the frozen enemy. If done correctly, the enemy will take a hit from the boomerang on it's return.
This will somehow stun the enemy, and after a while he will be alive again ( he will still be blue ). After this, the enemy will be able to walk on water and phase through certain objects.
It's quite cool...hehe.
Also Link will be holding his hands in the air until he's hit
You can actually get to the Master Sword before you have the three Pendants and the Book of Mudora but you can't pick it up and the writing is all in Hylian.
To beat boss 3 in the tower of hera slash his tail.
It's not easy though beacause it wiggles all over the place.
Use your pegasis shoes and keep on ramming him till he dies
To get a free medicine of magic go to the mysterious pond in the pyramid. If you throw in an empty bottle, the fat fairy will fill it with the medicine of magic.
When he throws fire balls at you, hit them with your sword or bug catching net to bounce them back. Dodge his tri-attack, and make sure you get out of the way for the lighting bolt. If you just run aroumd crazily waiting for his attacks, they`re unlikely to hit you. I hope this has helped someone out there! ^^
Did anyone know that there is a second sword technique. To get this sword technique you must first get at least ten medals in Four Swords. After you get the ten medals, go into the small house at the left base of the dark mountain. There will a person at the back of the room. Talk to him and he will give you a basket. He will then tell you riddles. You must figure out the riddles, then go and catch what you think the answer is with the butterfly net.
Make sure you have full hearts and the pegasus boots. Use the pegasus boot to run through the boos and hit the tail (you won't get hurt when you run through the boss with the pegasus boots). After you hit the tail make sure you don't fall off the edge, so change the direction you are facing to stop yourself. Do this as many times as you can until the boss is destroyed. (and for all those who used the spining attack to defeat the boss, sorry you never found this out sooner)
To get the moon pearl get to the 3 dungeon on the mountain, and get the big key, when you get to the 6th floor step on a star pattern and go to the middle of the room. There should be a hole in the middle of the floor, go to the top left hand corner and drop down it to land on a platform with the big chest that you could not access from below. Inside is the moon pearl. You can now travel between the light world and the dark world and stay in your true form. A necceistty to beat the game.
Want to know a quick way to earn money? Of course you do ok .
Here is what you need to do you need to go to the town in the light world and the go to the portal right above the town.NOTE (you must have titans mit or hammer)youpick the rock up
Ect.the when in the dark world go back into town and go straig down look to your left there is abuilding with a ches in it go in.THIS IS THE QUICKEST WAY TO GET RUPEES.
Go to the first castle and when you get the treasure of the castle get out and go to the next castle.
Then repeat untill you are at turtle rock.
There are was of getting items before you can use them like the magic cape you can easily get it by going to the point of finding it in the dark world and use the mirror and you must have the pegasus boots to obtain the cape.
