The 3 Pictograph Tasks for Lenzo on Windfall Island

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!


Complete the game and play it again. Aryll will wear a pirate costume and Link will wear the blue costume he wears before getting the heros clothes.

Then get on the ground and grapple his eye. Then, while his eye is down, keep on hitting it `till it goes back up. Repeat untill dead.
Plant thing in the forbidden woods- to kill this, get your boomerang and throw it at the roots AT THE TOP, not the 7 or 8 at bottom trying to kill you.

Unlimited exilir soup and bait

Ok first lets start with the bait 1 go buy some bait set it to Y heres the tricky bit quickly press Y and start a few micro seconds after and change it with any item you'll spread the bait and still have 3 bits Smile now for the unlimited exilir soup heal your grandma with a fairy she'll give you exilir soup set it to Y and quickly press Y and Start you should drink it but still have a full bottle (you must change it with another item a bottle if you wanna have another half of it) NOTE: if you stuff up talk to your grandma again to get more and it's really hard

Instant translater

I heard that if you make your name Zelda you can Understand the ancient languages on the first quest.Try it!

Deadly Pigs

Go to Windfall Island and find one of the pigs. Take out your arrows and shoot it until it turns red. The pig will chase you, and the other ones will do it too. They will hurt you if they touch you and if 2 of them are on you, put out your shield and they will still hurt you somehow. I don't know how to make it stop. Just go in a building. It's pretty funny regardless.

Orange Ruppee/breaking stuff

On Outset Island under your grandma's deck is a hole. Crouch and follow the path. There should be an entrance so go in open the chest and viola an orange ruppee!!
You need the deku leaf for this cheat. On Outset Island there is a house wich has a pig yard. On the west side of Outset there is a trail, go up it. You should see a man with a telescope. (ignore him) And you can see a house with a little entrance. Fly over there on your deku leaf (make sure the wind is the right way) and you should be in a attic with barrels and pots with a hole in the floor. Now pick up the pots and drop them in the hole. You will hear a *smash* and it's really funny if you talk out loud!! Hope I helped!!

Lots of cheats

Zelda the wind waker

Save the Deku Tree & Get the Deku LeafIn the Deku Tree's Island you will have to save him from some blob creatures. First, stand on the giant lilly-pad in front of the Deku Tree. Little blob creatures will appear all over the Deku Tree's face. To knock down the blobs, you have to do a rolling attack into the Deku Tree. The blobs will fall. Kill them all and you will see a cut-scene where you have to get up to the Deku Leaf on a branch. Jump into a flower bud on the floor. Try to face the next one (it is up higher). When the flower spits you out press UP all the way. You will land on another one. Continue doing this until you land on branch with one of the Deku Tree's children. Aim your GRAPPLING HOOK at a branch and swing into the next fl..

Moblin speed-up

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!

Perfectly Circular and Pale

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.


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.

Color Pictograph

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.

One Arrow

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.

Reset Game

Hold buttons: Start + B + X


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.

Finding Forbidden Tingle Statues

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

Beedle Memberships

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.).

Nintendo 64 photos

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).

Hurting The King of Red Lions

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.

Funky invisible cloths

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!!!

Zelda's Lullaby

During the ending (the bubble scene) nearly at the end, listen closely! Youll hear the tune!

Wallet Upgrades

- 1,000 Rupee Wallet: Outset Island, in the forest where you met Tetra
- 5,000 Rupee Wallet: Northern Fairy Island

Teleportation spell

To get the teleport spell you must get the bow first. Next you search the sea because I don't want to give you incorrect cordinates. Look for a giant tornado with a red frog inside. Once you spot him he will suck you in while he is doing this shoot an arrow at him. I recomend holding L tho automaticaly aim it's easier. P.S. This can only be used in areas where a tornado is.
