Most Popular Hints and Tips
1st Pic: Wait on the edge of the dock facing the mailbox and wait for this guy in red overalls to show up and stick a letter in the mailbox - you need to take the shot as soon as his hand is near the mailbox.
2nd Pic: Go to the cafe (to get to it, go to the Shop of the guy who gave you your Sail - outside - and to the left of the Shop is a set of stairs, take them up to the cafe). There's a guy standing over in the corner by a table - he's the coward you need to scare. Roll into the wall or throw a pot at him to scare him, then snap a photo of him - quickly.
3rd Pic: Up by the School is a girl in orange and you know that guy who walks around the Town and supposedly knows all of the short cuts, well, when he gets near her, he'll look at her, take the shot of them then!
If you are cheap about arrows, you can just try to fire your arow at something wooden or grassy and the arrow will be on the ground. Get the arrow that you shot back and you will have saved some arrows.
The other people who want the item mostly bid "3" more rupees. So no worries, you probably want to bid 10 or more rupees, so the people will get stunned and you'll get a better chance of winning.
If you have trouble finding the 5 Forbidden Tingle Statues, have a Gameboy Advance System, a Gameboy Cable, and the Tingle Tuner (in your Item Menu.) Call him and go to the main places like dungeons, towers, and other main buildings. Using Tingle to look for the Statues, use Tingle's map and find some weird hints that Tingle will notice. Once Tingle notices a rare item hidden somewhere in the room, use Tingle's Bomb (will cost 10 of your Ruppes) and just leave it. Once it explodes, a treasure appears, open it and VOILA, you got a Forbidden Tingle Statue!
Beat the game once and watch through the credits. It will ask you to save your game for a second play-through. Save it to any file and play that file for a new mode. Here is what I've noticed so far:
- You keep the clothes you start with (the blue shirt) instead of Links usual green clothes.
- Aryll is still wearing the shirt the pirates gave her at the end of the normal game.
- Valoo, the Deku Tree and Jabun speak fully in english.
- If you had the Pictobox at the end of the normal game, then you will have it at the start of the new game.
- The Nintendo Gallery will already be open
These are the items you get for Silver and Gold Membership:
Silver Memebership: 30 Points for a Slip for getting Complimented.
Gold Membership: 60 Points for a coupon that makes certain item refilled (Bombs,Arrows,etc.).
- 1,000 Rupee Wallet: Outset Island, in the forest where you met Tetra
- 5,000 Rupee Wallet: Northern Fairy Island
Not all the time you have to use Lengendary Photos. You can use the Color Camera to get sculptures of enemies (exp:Red ChuChu) and people (exp:Deku Tree).
Did you know that you can hurt the K.R.L., just use arrows, BomBs, and other hurting items on him but he never tells you to stop.
In the ending of Quest 2 when water fills the area, and you float up, look at the back of your head. It looks like you have the cap own even though you realy dont! (no invisble cloths) but when you come back up, your wearing your quest one cloths!!!
While at Forest Haven, after defeating the boss and you are back where you met the big tree, go to a corner with shiny things flying around it. There will be a colored fairy called the Forest Firefly. Catch it with a bottle(if you have one) and sail out of Forest Haven and go to Windfall Island. Go to Lenzo's house(the one with alot of bricks and talk to him inside. Show him the Forest Firefly and he will be amazed that you have one. He'll take it, upgrade it, and give you a better pictograph with color.
Note: There will be some small missions for you to use the pictograph like at Forest Haven, Windfall Island, and more.
During the ending (the bubble scene) nearly at the end, listen closely! Youll hear the tune!
IM NOT LYING!!!! I HAVE TESTED IT!!!!!!!!!
I heard that if you make your name Zelda you can Understand the ancient languages on the first quest.Try it!
Now, this is a glitch I found all by myself. Why don't ya try it?
What you require: Ice arrows
Where it can be done: Anywhere as long as there is a Moblin (big pig with spear) there (the Earth temple is a good example).
Who will be affected: You.
How to do it: Freeze a moblin, any moblin. Then pick him up. When he starts shaking, he's about to defrost. Use the "R" button to PUT him down roughly
0.5 - 0.8 seconds after he breaks the ice. With a perfect timing, you will STILL be able to pick him up. This triggers the glitch. You will notice at once if it works.
What happens: No spoilers here, nope. You habe to find out by yourself.
At least I can tell you this: This glitch lead to other glitches as well. It's up to you to find them. See ya!
If you guys thought that the full moon was Perfectly Circular and Pale, you were right. You need a Deluxe/Color Pictobox for this. To get the Deluxe Pictobox, you need to get a Forest Fairy in Forest Haven and give it to Lenzo.
When you get to the Island where the big fish *WAS* supposed to be, he ecsaped to Outset Island. That island is cursed, so on your way to Outset Island, it will be raining the whole way at night, so don't even bother making it daylight. The postman will go to the Cursed Island and tell you that you will need bombs, so go to Windfall Island and go to the back of the bomb shop, Pirate Tetra and her crew will be there and the owner will be tied for trying to make a fortune. Later, one of the pirates will say the password of the ship. The password of the ship is Schooner. Go to the ship and say Schooner. Then the little pirate will be there again and you will have to do another test. Complete the test and go to Outset Island, and in the back, blow it up to get the pearl. There you go, no FIGHTING!
If you want easy traveling do the following in 3 easy steps:
1. Get the hero's bow from the Tower of Gods.
2. Find a Cyclone and approach it.
3. Once Cyclo appears, shoot him three times and get the Ballad of the Winds song ( Ballad of the Winds: C-Down, C-Right, C-Left, C-Up)
P.S. It will only make you go to certain places like Windfall Island, Ouset Island, Dragon Roost Island, and others.
Okay all you have to do to this boss is go in the light and shine it on him. He will then turn solid and just sit there for a while, and this is your chance. First pick him up and throw him into the spiky pillar on the wall, and when he splits up into all the little solid ghost start killing them. It takes two hits per small ghost. HINT: Hurricane Strike is very helpful. Then he will go back to normal now all you have to do is continue this until you have killed all the little ghosts. And the congrats you just got yet another heart container!
Alright the first thing is DO NOT try to kill it in the stairway area. Once you get to the top take out the Skull Hammer or the Megaton Hammer as refered to in previous games. Try to dodge his flying attacks when he uses them until he lands. When he lands just keep doing backflips or just simply backing up until he tries to peck you. When he does he will get his beak stuck in the ground, this is when the Skull Hammer cones in. Now just lock on and keep hitting him like crazy! After his helmet breaks you can damage him with arrows. I don't know about the boomerang (never tried it). And there you have it!
When you enter your Cabana, on your right there'll be a puzzle game that you have to play 16 times with a different puzzle character. If you complete the first 15 puzzles, you'll receive 50 Rupees in 5 Blues and 25 Greens. And also if you complete the 16th (last one), you receive 100 Rupees in Green, Blue, Red, Yellow, and Purple Rupees.
Okay this guy can be really annoying so I advise having as many faries in a bottle as possible. This boss is probably really easy but my L button is broken so it took me like a half hour to finally kill him. So as you can tell it's a lot easier when you can lock on, but anyway all you have to do is lock onto his tongue and pull it back towards you with the hook shot then just keep hitting him on the tongue. Do this like four times I think? It might be four. Whatever just look out for the little worms!
Hope I helped!
Ok, I found this glitch by accident while fighting Ganondorf in the last battle.
I thought it would be nice to have a picture of him so I snapped one and saved.
When the credits where done and I opened my file, my bow and arrows were GONE!!! ...but at least I had my picture left...
However, thanks to my hacking skills I could restore the bow with my action replay. Whew!
If you want to test it, then make a safety copy of your file first.
To get a picture for the guy that wants a photo that "STEALS HIS BREATH AWAY", get a lengendary photo from Lenzo (Jabun, Ganandorf,etc.), but you need to meet these people to get there photo. By thye way, I think you get one free cause I found Princess Zelda and I didn't get the Photo for it.
If you have certain items to give to people like Joy Pendants or Skull Necklaces, give it to the same person for some extra cash.
In Windfall Island, if you hit the pigs with a Fire Arrow, the pig will turn red and angry and will chase and hurt you until it calms down and back to normal.
