This is really random, probably everyone knows it but I just noticed!
On Ocarina of Time, the old lady in the potion shop has something on her lap, I zoomed in, and it's a BABY TIGER!
Then I realised, in Majora's Mask, the same women is on the game, but shes in a wheelchair, and if you look at the back of the wheelchair, there's a TIGER's face on it!
Someone at Nintendo must like Tigers...
As a child enter Hyrule Market town at night and go to the Treasure Chest game. Go there equipped with the Lens of Truth and use it to view the contents of the treasure chests. That way you can easily find out which ones have the key. The first time you beat it you will get a heart piece, if you beat it any more times you will get a purple rupee.

Here are a few secret places:
1. Enter the sacred forest meadow from the lost woods, and place a bomb in the middle of the clearing.
2. In zoras domain, go to the little platform in the water (a zora is standing there) and play hte song of storms
3. Go to kakariko village and go to the tree near the entrance. Take a few steps forward and start slamming around wiht your megaton hammer.
Whats in the secret places:
1. Wolfos, money
2. Fairy foutain
3. Redeads, lots of money
From the entrance in to the Lost Woods go right,left,right and right and go to the far side of the area you are now in to where there are butterflies flying around.. Go to where they are and you will fall down a hole. Put on a mask and the Deku Scrubs down there might give you something depending on the mask.
1. You need at least 1 bottle
2. It is better if it is an item you do not really need (like the magic beans after you plant them all.)
3. It takes careful timing
Have a bottle and the item you don't want in your c options.
Go into a hole where a fish is. Scrape up the fish with the bottle and just when you are about to get it press the c option with the item you don't want.
I messed up my game good.lol
Go to Lon Lon Ranch, talk to Ingo and pay 10 Rupees to ride a horse. Now play Epona's Song and ride the horse that comes to you. Get on and just ride around and practice until the time runs out. Next, do it again, but this time talk to Ingo from on the horse using Z and he'll challenge you to a race. Once you beat him, beat him again and he'll give you Epona - sort of. Ingo'll trap you inside the Ranch, but as long as you have Epona - just build up some speed and jump the gate!!!
Plus, now that you have a horse, when you're in Hyrule Field, just play Epona's Song to summon her and you'll have a vehicle, a mode of tranportation that's much faster than you running everywhere all of the time lol...
You wont believe what I just found out!
If you cast your line just right on the fishermans head (at the fishing pond) you will pull his hat off and if you cast into the pond with the hat on your line you will lose his hat.
WARNING: if you do lose his hat you will be charged a fifty dollar fine for a replacement but he never gets one! He will remain bald for the rest of the game!
For this glitch to work you need the Song of Storms. Go inside any building and play the song. You will hear all of the sound effects as if you outside and it starts raining a few seconds later. It also starts to lightning. If you leave the room or building the glitch will stop working. This didn't freeze up my game so it probably won't screw up yours.
Ok, I have heard all sorts of rumors flying around that talks about a secret cavern in Zora's domain where you can get the triforce. THIS IS NOT TRUE!!!!
The "cave" itself is there but nothing happens when you enter it. Anyway, perhaps you don't really trust me but if you wan't to see for yourself, keep reading.
Play the "get all rupees" game but don't finish it. Now, go to the small island in the water and face the wall nearest it. The water is to deep for you to reach the bottom even with the "Golden scale", but there is a way to reach it. Just before the zora shouts: "The game is over", jump into the water. With perfect timing you'll sink to the bottom. The cave is to your left if you were facing the wall.
Now see for yourself if there's anything there!
In the Ice Caverns there are about five Gold Skultulas and are all high up on the walls somewhere. Be sure to get these. If you hear a scratching noise look up.
First of all you must be big Link to do this cheat. Go to the fishing pond place, the man will ask you if you like to fish.
Click yes and get your rod. Once you aquire your rod go to a specific angle and try to get the man who gave you the rod and retrive his hat by fishing.
Now use it as bait and you'll see a change in the weight of your fish. But you can only use his hat as bait for only a couple of times. Hope you enjoy !
And if you want to send me anything of Zelda or money here is the address 14746 S.W. 178 Terrace, zip code is 33187 Miami,FL.. I will realy appreciate it.
Since I read this section I saw alot of people asking how to kill him, I personally like to have fun with him but the speediest way to kill him is...
Obviously knock back his energy balls, BUT, use the forward slash, and even if the ball is 1-2 feet in front of you you WILL still hit it. If you aren't good at Zelda Tennis, DON'T FOR ANY REASON charge your swoard up and hit it back. It tims the speed 2.5x... I do that but yeah You probably won't be able to, It speeds up the process... A little.
You can also deflect his balls with a bottle. Weird. Lol
If you blow up a stone that tells you the time it will go really tall, if you play the song of storms infront of it it will give you a fairy.
Ok, this is for anyone who turned into an adult without getting Din's Fire. If you shoot arrows through a torch bracket, it lights on fire. I used this myself in water and Fire temple. Also use this when low on magic.
You can light torches with good aim as well!
Stalfos are tricky to kill. To kill them it's best to defend their attacks with your sheild and when they drop their guard strike them with your sword. Repeat until dead.
To get the kikori sword you have to crawl through the hole in the wall. The hole is in the wall beside the guy with the three rocks in the kikori village.
Once you defeat Ganon"dork",you run out of the castle, blah blah blah!
Zelda tells you in the middle where the castle collapses, there is something there she wants you to investigate.
So do it (She could have you executed you know)Ganon appears and he will knock your Master sword out of your hand you don't have to use the Meggaton hammer, instead use the Biggoron sword!
I hope that helped!
If you want more fairies become link as a child and get a deku stick out near a bunch of butterflies and wait once one lands on the deku stick it will turn into a fairy.
P.s patience is needed
In the shadow temple if u hav hover boots go over to the mouth (if its open!) go down the corridor and you will come to a laser eye thing kill it and go on the circle were it was.
Play the song of storms and a giant fairy comes out.
unfortunaly you can't catch it.
It heals all your health (same as a normal fairy just bigger and you can't catch it.)
When you get inside the great deku tree climb to the top of the deku tree and jump off and land on the web. If you don't hit the web you will lose a life!!!!!!!!!!
When you're racing Ingo for Epona always be sure to stay in front of him. That way he can't overtake you unless he goes around the long way and uses a carrot to amke his horse go faster. If he does this, just simply use one or two carrots.
To get the last Bottle, you have to find all 10 Big Poes in Hyrule Field as an Adult. Ride Epona and when a Poe appears, hit it with 2 Arrows to destroy it, then get off Epona, approach the yellow flame and put it in a Bottle. Take the Big Poes to the guy in that room before you enter Hyrule Castle's Market; here's the locations of the 10 Big Poes...
1) Near the stream to the back left of Hyrule Castle.
2) Just outside Hyrule Castle by the sign that leads you to Lon Lon Ranch.
3) Under the ledge near the entrance to Kakariko Village.
4) By the tree right outside Lon Lon Ranch.
5) Where the stone wall turns.
6) At the tree below the ledge near Gerudo Valley.
7) Next to the wall between Gerudo Valley and Lake Hylia.
8) By the boulder between Lon Lon Ranch and the Lost Woods.
9) Where the patch of grass is by the trees between Lake Hylia and the Lost Woods.
10) Amongst the trees near where #9 was.
This doesn't help you through the game but it's fun to do.
To do this first find a place with crates where you can also take Epona this works great at the Gerudo's Fortress.
First ride Epona to the Gerudo's Fortress , then get off her by any of the crates, break the crate or crates, then move Epona to where the crate(s) was.
Get off her and enter the fortress and head straight back out. Epona should now be partly inside the crate but your able to still mount her but won't be able to go anywhere. Break the crate to release Epona.
My friend and I accidently came across this one day. Enjoy.
In order to defeat Queen Gohma who is the boss at the bottom of the great deku tree, all you have to do is z-target on her eye.
Get close, then when she lifts up her hands and her eye turns red, use the slingshot on her eye to stun her, and then jump attack her as many times as you can.
Then she should climb up to the top of the room and try to lay eggs. But keep her eye z-targeted and when it turns red, use the slingshot again to stun her and make her fall to the floor.
Then, like before, jump attack her a few times if you can and by now she should be defeated.
If she isn't, however, just start the whole thing all over again.
