How do you get the level two nigtmarekey?

getting killed by the shopkeeper

This works best with the sword.Go into the shop and take an item from the shelf.Make the shopkeeper look up while you leave the store from the door on the bottom.A note will come up saying that you stole.Go back in and the shopkeeper will be standing by the shelf.He will electricute you until you are dead.As soon as you start again you will have that item.You will also be called THIEF by Marin and the owl.

There are two ways to steal items in the shop.This comes in handy when you have to buy the bow.

1.Take the item,then start running around the shop owner.While he is looking at the wall,leave the shop before he looks back at you.

There is a catch though,the next time you go inside the shop,he uses some kind of beam and you lose all your hearts.

2.This one has a catch,too.You have to have enough rupees to take it.Buy the item,and when he starts taking your rupees away,save as quickly as possible and restart your game,and you will have

This is not really a cheat, but i have seen a lot of requests for this.

First arm yourself with the pegusus boot and sword.

When trying to defeat the third boss, the eye, slash at him untill he almost splits in half.

Then, before he re-groups go through him with the pegusus boot.

Then he splits into two eyes. They will jump up and try to land on you so watch out for their shadows.

Anyways, it takes 3 sword swipes to kill each eye.

In the colour dungeon you can choose either the ..

In the colour dungeon you can choose either the red or blue tunic.

Here's how to get both: beat the to mini night-mares then leave save and go back in, beat them again then beat the nightmare and get the BLUE tunic then leave & save and do all of the above again but choose the RED tunic insted.

If you are trying to beat the seventh nightmare,..

If you are trying to beat the seventh nightmare, (in the Eagle's Tower) you should first get all of the Secret Sea Shells.

After you visit the Sea Shell Mansion (to get to the Sea Shell Mansion you go south of the bridge built by Kiki and his monkey friends) and get the level 2 sword (from the Sea Shell Mansion) it only takes about 4 slashes to defeat the eagle nightmare in the Eagles Tower.

This hint is really true. Trust me I have beat the game before.

This doesn't have to be DX version. 1. Buy 40 bombs and 40 arrows.

2. Do the Super Arrows(or Exploding Arrows) trick and hit the Mini-Boss with them( this one is in Bottle Grotto.)

3. If you don't have enough rupees, then steal something that is part of Super Arrows. Then don't go back in unless...... oh, find out for yourself (not a rude remark).

4.Use them at the BOSS battles.

Try these 4 steps!

To use two items select the two you want to use then press the A and B buttons at the same time. (If you use bombs and arrows at the same time you will get an arrow with a bomb on the end of it)

To get a bomb arrow cofigure the bombs and arrows as the 2 button items, then press a+b to shoot.

Pictures and color dungeon not in regular

To everyone who has been submitting stuff about pictures and a color dungeon, those features are only in the deluxe version. To enter that info you should do it in the deluxe versions stuff, which says Legend Of Zelda: Links Awakening DX.

Exploding Arrows

To do the exploding arrow trick you have to equip the bombs to one button and the arrows to the other button.
To work it,you have to press both the A and B buttons at the same time and you should see the arrow with a bomb on it and when it hits anything,it will explode.
Hope I helped.

Kill final boss in one hit

First step is to open the cave wall on the beach relativly early in the game. After the 6th level a dog like person will be in the empty cave. Put the shovel in your B slot and talk to him to exchange it for a BOOMERANG!!!!!
Now then, get all the insturments and open the windfish egg. Enter and follow the maze based on the directions in the book from the library (complete trade game to get magnifying glass).
Jump down the hole and face the multi-form boss. His forms include a blob, aganhim, snake (first boss), ganon, floor shadow, and the hardest form... The giant shadow eye!
Now the final phase of this plan. Normaly this guy would take 20 arrows in the open eye to win. BUT if you use the boomerang.... He'll be in his grave within 1 hit!

unlock skeleton holes

First go to the forest.Find the screen with the monster holding a sword and shield.Pick up the rock in the corner and go down the stairs.(must have power bracelet for this)powder the hole inbetween two skeleton heads and a bat like creature will come out.This one will let you hold more powder.Thre is another one near the house by the bay.It will let you hold more bombs.

Slow Moving Frogs

Go into the that guy's villa. If you pick up a pot using the strength bracelet, his frogs will move really slow. This doesn't contribute to the game, but it's cool to see.

How to Defeat the WINDFISH EGG

The creature in the egg has several forms.

Blob--use magic powder on it

Caterpillar--use same techniques as on first boss.

ninja--use sword...but beware of throwing axe!

wizard--use sword to reflect bolts back at him.

chain-eye--use bow and rocs feather. shoot his eye when it opens... and jump the chain-balls!!

Screen Warp

When you walk to another screen or room, as you are crossing right in between both, press select to bring up the map. If done correctly, when you exit the map screen, you will be on the other end of the screen you moved to.
This can get you over barriers to finish levels easier, or you can use it to glitch to places you aren't supposed to be. Be warned that you can mess up your game by doing this, and/or get stuck in walls and have to restart.
