Dashing into trees can earn you money, but it can also earn you bees! They'll pop out with around ten of 'em, so don't get stung!
Why this is useful: + Free bees! + Easy catch. Why this is useless: - Auch! - No more treasure from that tree until returning from another screen.
In rooms with the poltregeist tiles, stand at the edge of the room and face the center of the room. The tiles will bounce harmlessly off the shield.

Upon entering Dark World and completing the first dungeon, Link can enter the Thieves' Den dungeon in the Village of Outcasts and upon completing it, he can use the Titan's Mitt to get the Dwarves to upgrade the Master Sword from L2 to L3.
There's a cave under a big rock just before you enter the desert (in the western part of the Overworld) where a thief is surrounded by pots. If you enter the cave and smash the pots for rupees, you can get 50 rupees each time.
Once you have the golden bee from the cave north of lake Hylia, show it to the person selling a golden bee in the village of outcasts, so you can get one anytime for 88gold. Trust me it's worth it. Anyway...
Once you have the golden bee in a jar, in ANY boss fight simply let it out of it's jar and watch as it beats up the boss. It's quite funny really.

Use your ram attack on a tree; some fruits should pop out. These restore 1 heart a piece.
In the light world, simply go to Lake Hylia. Go to the center area of the lake were the small island is, and enter the cave. There should be a fairy well inside. Simply throw rupees into the well until you've thrown 100. The fairy will emerge and ask if you'd like to improve your maximum Bomb or Arrow count. You can do this repeatedly by tossing 100 rupees into the well. Be aware that the fairy will stop increasing the maximum bomb and arrow count when your bombs reach 50 and your arrows reach 70.

Ok, so I finally figured the rest of them out. Here goes.
Get the hookshot on Link as soon as that annoying boss fight music starts. There's these little brown cottonballs stuck in a clump with tentacles hanging down. During this part of the battle all you need to do is shoot the hookshot at the balls, pull them to you, and kill them with the sword. But be careful; with every few balls removed the remaining ones will take off in a circle around the room and the best thing you can do here is get in a corner. Once you've got the balls off, they reveal a giant red eye trying to crush you. Just keep hitting him with the sword, and then collect your spoils when you win.
Giant moth in a medium sized room. Looks easy, right? Wrong. The floor is moving every which way, there are spikes moving across it, Mothula's flapping around shooting fireballs...it's chaos. Hopefully you've got fairies and potions. Hit Mothula with your fire rod to kill him faster, but considering he's always moving you'll run out of magic faster and still won't kill him. So I'd recommend forgetting the magic eating fire rod and using the sword. You're SUPPOSED to use the rod, but...this is easier for beginners. Once he's dead, get the loot and scoot.
Ok, this is a rather tough battle, but a not too lengthy explaination. Use a walkthrough if you need it to get to the woman in Blind's hideout. If it's a good walkthrough it'll tell you there's a hole you need to open up to activate the boss fight. But...I'll let the walkthroughs explain that. Anyway, when you bring the 'woman' to the light in the chamber, she'll spaz out and turn into Blind. And the fun begins. He pops all over the room for awhile shooting lasers you can't block, and then when you hit him long enough. Now you have a spinning head shooting fireballs. Eventually you're going to have three spinning heads with fireballs, and it's really crazy. Slash away at him until he's dead. If you die...well, keep trying. ^^
When you're in the room for the first part of the fight, all you need to do is get out your fire rod and hit the giant mound of ice three times while avoiding the ice chunks raining down on you. When the ice melts, out comes three eyeballs. Simply slash them to death with the sword and grab their presents. Best way to do this is to get either Link or the eyeballs into a corner, but don't let them gang up on you.
The makers of Zelda must hold a tribute to eyeballs or something. Huh. Anyway, this boss is so easy I could do it with my eyes closed. There's a giant eyeball surrounded by many more eyes sitting in a pile of glop and goo (that will take away some hearts if you touch it, so DON'T)and it starts releasing those small eyeballs at you. Have fun dicing them up with the sword. Then when there's only four left in the goo, the biggest eye, Vitty, will start to shoot lightning at you. You're probably still killing eyes at the moment, so worry about those while avoiding his lightning. When you have killed all the eyes, start on Vitty. Keep at it till he's dead. Easy.
My all time favorite boss. He's a dragon/turtle thing that has three heads at the beginning - a brown head, a red/orange head, and a blue head. Blue head shoots ice, red shoots fire, yada yada. MAKE SURE YOUR MAGIC METER'S FULL, as you've probably gone to town with magic in the hell known as Turtle Rock. Use the fire rod to stun the ice head first to avoid the slippery ground his breath makes, and slash him with the sword. Next use the ice rod on the fire head. He'll die fast. Now, the thing will move all over the room and you have to hit his weak spot in the middle a number of times to kill him. Phew.
Yep, he's back. With fighting skills no better than before. But this time he clones himself, and all of his attacks come from all three of him. The non-transparant Aggy is the real dude, so reflect the fireballs back at that one and then...get a snack, a nap, and a big bag of patience. You'll need it for the last boss.
First and foremost, fall through the bat shaped hole after the cut scene that comes after you kill Aggy. Ganon's a big blue boar or something with a staff. First he taunts Link, then he starts to throw his trident at you. It's like your boomerang, so it comes back to him, giving you time to get him with the sword. This part's easy. Next he twirls the trident, sending fire bats at you. Keep slashing. When he taunts Link again, now's your cue to be on your guard. He'll leap and jump, causing the floor to fall around the outside. When he's jumped, the screen pauses and you have to wait, so slash at him whenever you can. Then he'll taunt Link YET AGAIN. This time the room goes slightly dark and you can't see him. Light the two torches with the fire rod or the lamp and QUICKLY run up and slash him. He'll turn blue, and while he looks like ice get him with your silver arrows. Keep at it until the fourth arrow kills him. Sucess. (PLEASE have at least two potions before this battle! Fairies work too!)
Syd on July 25, 2007
the requirements for this tip are...the bow and arrows oh and sertinly the ability to outsmart someone so find one of those monsters that suck you towards them if you go near them in desert palace then get nicley away from them but make sure they are still insight,
then whene they come out of the sand before they shoot tiny fireballs at you shoot an arrow at them. if they shoot out a fireball while the arrow is on its way just prevent the fireballs until the arrow hits the monster so thats the easy way hope it works.....see ya.
Get 10 medals in four swords, and you can start the riddle quest with the lumberjack in Link to the past. Complete the riddle quest and you will get the Hurricane Blade move.
Just achieve 999 points in the Four Swords Bossfight game.

The Palace of the Four Sword is a secret level that is only available on the GBA version of A Link to the Past. To unlock this level, you must defeat Ganon in A Link to the Past and you must defeat Vaati in the Silver Key quest in Four Swords.
1. Mountain Tower
To get to this fairy cave, you need to go through the mountain tower until you get to the room directly before the boss fight. DO NOT STEP ON THE STAR PAD. Weave through the pits and the monsters until you find the smallest, narrowest hole at the north. Go ahead and fall in. You'll keep falling, through holes and pots and whatnot, until you land in a room with two fairies. Catch them and then go south to step on the yellow swirly pad. You'll be back in the boss room. 2. Link's house Didn't know there was fairies back here, eh? Jump off of the hill that Link's house sits on from the LEFT. You'll see a stack of rocks that look like pale green cabbages. Ram into them with the Pegasus shoes. A staircase for you to walk down will be there. Catch the fairies and get out the same way.

There is an unlockable quest in A Link to the Past that must be triggered by Four Swords. This is called the Riddle Quest, which is a fun-filled side-quest to get you a new sword technique called the Hurrican Spin. There are a total of ten riddles you must answer to complete the Riddle Quest. Once you have gained ten Medallions of Courage in Four Swords you can visit the Lumberjack's House in A Link to the Past to find the Lumberjack man and a new quest. The man will hand you this basket...
You must use your Bug Catching Net to obtain ten different items one at a time and store them in this basket. Once you have caught something, bring it back to the Lumberjack to receive the clue for the next riddle. All of the answers can be found in the Light World. Here is a list of all the clues given and all the answers! Riddle #1 "Cock-a-doodle-doo!" Answer: A Cucco. The easiest place to locate a Cucco is in Kakariko Village. Simply head south until you find the boy with his two Cuccos dancing about. Even the women sweeping her front yard has at least five pecking away inside her house! Riddle #2 "The scissors by the water..." Answer: A Sand Crab. These crabs can be most conveniently located at the entrance to the ice cave where you obtained the Ice Rod. This cave is located east of Lake Hylia but must be reached by a paths that starts below the Lake. Riddle #3 "It's shiny and red." Answer: A red Rupee. Red rupees are dropped by most any enemy, however, since they are worth a lot, it is not very common. A good strategy is to teleport to the Dark World and slash enemies there, as those enemies have better chances of dropping high valued rupees. Riddle #4 "It's moist and fresh..." Answer: A Fish Fish can be found in very few puddles in Hyrule. An easy way to obtain one is to go to the Swamp Draining pool west of Lake Hylia on the map. Once you get inside, drain the puddle and catch the fish that will be flapping to the left of the drain. Riddle #5 "BOOOM! Skitter-scatter... What is it?" Answer: An Octoballoon. Octoballoons are big floating creatures that explode and split up into eight little monsters. Unfortunately, you must catch one of the fast moving small ones. Travel to point eight via your flute, or simply take the path to the ice cavern east of Lake Hylia to find one. Riddle #6 "Sprinkle and watch it wobble..." Answer: A Slime. The easiest way to encounter one of these little blobs is to use Magic Powder on a Hylian Soldier. Once you sprinkle some on, a slime will appear in its place. Riddle #7 "It munches on nuts..." Answer: A Squirrel. These care-free squirrels can only be found in one place. That place is the clearing in the Lost Woods where the Master Sword sleeps. Simply go to the clearing and swipe one before it gets away. Riddle #8 "Pull it out, but... too bad!" Answer: A fake Master Sword. Head for the Lost Woods, once there you will see many swords in pedestals all over the place. Simply catch one of these fake Master Swords to complete the riddle. Riddle #9 "It's red and sweet..." Answer: An Apple. In a few trees in Hyrule, there are apples that fall when you charge into them with your Pegasus Shoes. The easiest one to find is one screen down from the Lumberjack's residence. It is the lone tree in the bottom-right of the screen. Charge into it to get the ninth riddle. Riddle #10 "A speculated wanderer..." Answer: A Cukeman. The goofy Cukeman can be found by sprinkling some Magic Powder on a regular Buzzblob. There are some in the Lost Woods and outside the Witch's Hut. Be careful not to get shocked in the process!

The running man in Kakariko Village, that dashes away from you each time you approach, can actually be caught up to. To catch him, run towards him with the Pegasus Shoes. It'll take some practice, but you can catch up to him. Nothing useful happens though, he just tells you about some various things that aren't very important. Still, it's fun to be able to catch him. He's a fast little-
Go to 5F just before you go to the boss.
The pit that is at the top right corner falls straight down into the giant lamp sort of thing on 4f, which leads to the next one on 3f and 2f until finally you get to 1f, where two fairies are always flying around. Use them for health, or capture them to bring you back to life when you die. Great for beating the boss. Also there is a teleport pad the brings you back to 5f.

1. East Palace
Starting at the entrance to the East Palace, work your way through this first set of puzzles until you get to the part where you're being besieged by bowling balls. Move through them without getting hit, and you'll see two sets of stairs, one on each side, at the end. Go towards the LEFT set of stairs, but DON'T climb it. Instead, go down and keep going down until you see another set of stairs. Climb those, and then head to the right until you see a row of pots and a chest. The chest gives you free rupees! Collect the other goodies from the pots and go back the way you came. 2. Flute Boy You need to find this place early so you won't have to hunt for it later in the game. In the Light World, start at the path that passes Link's house and go left. Keep going left, killing/avoiding enemies as you go. You'll soon see a large cluster of bushes between some trees. Hack through them and you'll be in a clearing. If you advance further in this clearing, you'll hear music and there will be a kid playing a flute surrounded by animals. Stay far enough away from them if you want to listen. When you get too close, the animals scatter and the boy disappears. Pretty helpful when you're near the Dark World levels.
Syd on September 03, 2007
In Kakariko Village, not in the Dark World, go to one of the houses with a Mario picture. Pull on the picture, and rupees come out!
I think the house is one of the houses on the far right column of houses.
The Chickens found in Kakariko Village and other areas have a vendetta against you; that is, of course, if you attack them. Hit a chicken enough with your various weapons, whether it be sword, arrow, bomb, whatever, and the chickens will come from all directions to peck you! It's a storm of chickens! Not really a useful secret, but a good one none-the-less, wouldn't you say?
A fairly important secret, the Waterfall of Wishing provides Link the opportunity to upgrade two of his very important items, his Shield and his Boomerang. The Waterfall of Wishing is located at the end of the river in which you get the Flippers from Zora, but on the opposite end of the river. Pass by the Witch's Hut, move the green stone to gain access to the river, and you'll be in the general vicinity. You need the Flippers to access the Waterfall of Wishing, however. Read the signs in the area to find its location, and then jump into the water. Swim north into a waterfall and you'll be in a secret cave. Now, approach the pond in the cave and it'll ask you to throw an item into the water. Throw your Shield in the water to get the Red Shield back, and your Boomerang in the water to get the Magical Boomerang back, both free of charge! Pretty easy, eh?
When you get to Turtle Rock pull on his foot to get 4 blue rupees. Its not much but its cool.

Wooden Sword-Get it from your uncle.
Master Sword-Go to Lost Woods after getting all three pendants and pull it out from the pedestal. Reforged Master Sword-Get the Titan's Mitt and go to the place with the bouncing frog guy. Go to the village in dark world and then use your mirror. Make him go to the smithy and you get your sword reforged for 10 rupees. Gold Sword-Throw your reforged master sword in the fountain in the pyramid and answer you dropped it. Silver Arrows-Same as reforged master sword only throw bow and arrows.
These are methods I figured out myself, but there's only a few. Haven't figured out the others yet.
Easiest boss to defeat. When they hop close to Link, slash away until they're across the room. Then start shooting arrows at them. But don't start shooting arrows like it's the National Arrow Fest - you'll run out fast. Use them when you know you can get a shot. The last knight turns red and starts to chase you and tries to splat you, so keep moving at all times. When he's on the ground for that second, turn and shoot him with an arrow. With practice the arrow will hit him just as he rises up again. Three strikes and he's out.
These huge worms shoot out of the ground at random places, spewing harmful dirt as they go. To kill them, you have to hit their heads. Considering there's no way to tell when they're in the air which end is which, stand at a crumbling hole and slash away. It takes awhile, but it's better than running around trying to catch them airborne.
I'll just say this right now - THIS BOSS IS FRIGGING ANNOYING. He's another worm, but this time he's even bigger then the Lanmolas and moves around like a snake. The most important thing though is the reddish swirly bit on the end of his tail. That's his weak spot, and you need to hit this to win. So while he's gyrating around like an idiot, TRY to stay away from the edge. Chase him if you want, whatever works for you, but AVOID THE HOLE IN THE MIDDLE. It'll take you back to the room you started in directly before Moldy and you'll have to start the battle over. To effectively hit his tail, hold down the up button on your GBA and CHAAAARGE! THIS WILL NOT KEEP YOU FROM FALLING, but it'll hold you mostly in place when Moldorm knocks into you. Good luck!
Sheesh, this guy's easier than the Armos knights...anyway, since a lot of people may not know this, you go up and you slash at the northernmost curtian in back of the room after he makes Zelda disappear. Go in the hidden door, and the battle begins. Aggy shoots three different energies at you - magic bubbles, lightnihng, and a blue ball that breaks into many smaller balls. The lightning, and the ball are to be AVOIDED AT ALL COSTS. Simply move to the side to avoid the lightning (you'll know when he stands at the top of the screen) and don't stop moving when he does the ball. As for the bubbles, reflect them back at him with your sword or your butterfly net. Doesn't take much effort, but keep some fairies just in case.
Adorable little monster, isn't he? He'd be a nice pet if he weren't so evil. Ok, so the first thing you need to do upon entering this level is to QUICKLY switch to the Hammer. Use the charge method you used on Moldorm and keep bashing his head with the hammerm avoiding the fireballs and his whiplash tail. Eventually the helmet will break completely. Once again, avoid the tail and the fireballs, and start loading arrows into his green gem on his forehead. Soon he'll be dead! Yay for you.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past Glitches
Back to top
This glitch, for a link to the past, requires the ether medalion and the mirror shield.
First go to a place that has a like like, one that steals your shield, then let one of the like like take your mirror shield. Before it jumps into the air and takes away your shield forever, freeze it with the ether medalion, and destroy it with your sword. Then reclaim your mirror shield and it will be blue! Ta da, that's the glitch.
Go to Kakariko Village, to the place where the really fast boy is or used to be.
Walk to the right so that you can just see the water. Throw your boomerang. If it hits the ledge you are too close. Get as close as you can without the boomerang touching the ledge. Now throw the boomerang to the right. Immediately start dashing to the opposite direction. If you did it right, you'll see that you threw your boomerang all the way 'round the world and it'll fly to you from the other direction. you can do whatever you want but the boomerang will be leaving the screen on one side and leave it on the other over and over again, without Link being able to catch it. The boomerang however will not be able to attack enemies: it will just fly trough them without doing harm. It will also try to reach Link but that's no use since Link can't catch it anyways: it's going way too fast! Change screens to stop the glitch. NOTE: It is said that while performing the glitch you should not be hit by an enemy or the game will freeze. I do not know if this is true but you might want to try it.
Go to a place with both upper and lower levels, like for example Thieves Town. Jump down a ledge to the north and use the magic mirror to get to the entrance while in mid-air.

Go into a room with wallmasters and a north door. Go through it when a wallmaster is going up after dropping to try and get you. If everything is alright you will also see the wallmaster going up in the room you are in right now.
Right for this glitch you will need... the ether medalion.
First go to the dark world and find one of those one eyed monsters you know uh....... those cyclope guys that throw exploding bombs at you then freeze the cyclope with the ether medalion and then whene its frozen destroy it with your sword and then just before it explodes you will see other colors than the normal ones. you can only witness these other colors for a second before they vanish with the monster. so..thats the glitch.

This cheat can get you 999 ruppies OK this how you do it go to the light world you know the one you begin at go to the dessert of mystery Go to 2 rocks that are gaurded by one soldier lift the one on the bottem there will be a hole go into it you will find a guy with pots a round him don't talk to him break all the pots under each one is a blue ruppie that costs 5 puppies go out and back in repeat by the time you have 999 ruppies you can buy anything and remember this always work!)
if you are in the middle of a battle or anything simliliar (besides a dungeon or boss battle), and you have a fairy in a bottle. Then when you would normally die, instead of going straight to the save & continue, save & quit screen, the fairy comes out and heals you and you keep on going.
Note: The reason i said it doesn't work on battles in dungeons, is because i havn't tried it yet. You may try it if you like to.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past Cheats
Back to top
Have you ever wondered what was under that BIG stone bridge in the game? Well here''s what''s under it: A man that is just DYING to give you a Bottle.
To get to him, you have to have Zora''s Flippers, so if you don't have 'em GO GET THEM! Once you have them jump into the nearest part of the river near the bridge adn swim under it. You will now see a man sleeping next to a tent. Talk to him and he will give you a Bottle free of charge! Eh not great but hey....

Link can pick up and throw many items, such as jars, bombs and stones. Press the R Button once to pick up an item, then press it again to throw. Thrown items deal out heavy damage.
on January 22, 2003
When you get the Hammer and you go to the blacksmith's house the hole to the right side. If you jump down and go to the door to the top of the screen and sprinkle the statue inside a flying guy will appear and ZAP you reducing your MP Consumption by half.
In Four Swords, throw a pot onto another player's head. The Link will have the pot stuck on his head. If you look in the other player's screen, the screen will be totally black except for the Link with the pot on his head.
In the Dark World, there is an open wall outside of the Pyramid, which leads to a GBA-exclusive dungeon of Link To The past. To explore this exclusive dungeon, you must complete Four Swords. Then the dungeon will be avalible for exploration. There is a special item waiting for you at the end, so don't give up!
on January 09, 2003
Get into The Dark World before getting the Master Sword: This trick will only work if you have the Moon Pearl, but you do not need the third Pendant. At the top of the mountain in the Light World is a warp to the Dark World. Use this, then travel down to where the bridge would be. Squeeze very close to it, then use the Mirror to travel to the Light World. Do the lightest button-tap possible, then wait for the portal to bring you back. Do not move. Use the mirror again, and when you are in the Light World, walk into the fence. Facing the fence, charge your sword and slowly move back into the portal. You should now be on the edge of the cliff. Move right to jump off, then walk to where you see a lava break and a rock next to each other (at the bottom of the screen.) Move in between them and move down. The screen should move to you on a hill in the Dark World.

First, get one or more empty bottles(from the bottle seller in the village or somewhere else), then, go to a Fairy Fountain that allows you to throw items in(not the Fountain that lets you throw ruppees in), then, throw in one of your EMPTY bottles. Then, a Fairy will come out and ask if you dropped your bottle in the fountain. Answer yes and the fairy will give it back to you with magic medicine in the bottle. You can do this with as many empty bottles as you want, as long as they're empty.
Ok for the 2nd boss ( desert one ) for when you get the second pendant a cheat is you should damage them all EQUALLY. That way the last one isnt hard
To fill up your magic meter easy, you first go to a Fairy Fountain where you throw stuff in. Then, throw in the lamp you got at the beginning of the game. Then, a fairy will come out and ask if you dropped your lamp in there. Answer yes and the fairy won't give you anything special in return, except your lamp back, but when you get it back, your magic meter will be full!
Go to the dark world and then go to the theves vilage there will be a bilding with a treasher cest on it. go in side of it. there will be lots of chests inside it.talk to the person inside of it. pay 30 rupis and pick 2 then leave and comback. keep doing that for awile and shure anouf you will get 999 rupis

Once you have the magic hammer go back up the mountain to where you entered the dark world the first time. Enter the portal then drop off the nearest openingin the wall. Enter the doorway and hit the red things down. Make sure you have both meters full and at least one red potion. Dash as fast as you can along the spikes to the chest at the far end. This cane offers protection against anything but consumes magic rather quickly. Handy in boss battles.
In the Village of Outcasts (Dark World Kakariko Village) Go to the where the blacksmith's house would be in the Light World. You should see a post (The kind that the hammer can be used to smash) on the side of the path right by the house. Smash the post and walk through the new path and leap off down into the pit to a new area. Go north up and you will see a strange green "shrine" sprinkle magic powder on the red area to cause a strange creature to emerge. He will cast a spell on you, causing him to think that he cut your magic in half, but he what he did was cut the cost of magic spells (items, accesories, medallions, etc...) in half. This will stay untill the end of the game, and is very usefull in almost every situation.

when your fighting a boss use the cape and they cant hit you
the cape is good for multipal enemies
Win 10 medals in Four Swords to play the mini quest in the Lumberjack's house by the mountain
Once you have the Titan's Mitts, go south off the Village of Outcasts. You'll find a frog. Talk to him. He will ask you to bing him to his partner. Use the Magic Mirror, and go east of Kakariko Village 'till you see the smith's workshop (it's a big red house with smoke coming out of the chimney).
Take the frog (who should be a shot guy now) inside. Then ask the smith to refirge your sword. He gives you a discount, so you only have to pay ten rupees.

In Kakariko Village, there is a house that has a sick boy in bed, where you get the Bug-catching net. On the back wall, there is a painting of Mario.
There are several ways to get free rupees. When you get the pegusus shoes, ram in to the tree in the lower right corner of the village. Leave the screen and repeat this.
Go to the cave where you get the ice rod. Just outside are several boulders. Lift them up and under them is a secret stair case. Lift up the pots and you get 5 rupees for each pot. Go in to the ice rod cave and use the pegusus shoes to ram in to the statue. Catch it with the bug catching net, put it in a bottle, then release it infront of the man who sells you bottles.

Play Link to the Past and get the Master Sword in the Lost Woods (you will need all three amulets for this). Once you have the Master Sword, save your game. When you quit and start the game again, a message will confirm that you can now use the Sword Beam (when your heart meter is full) in Four Swords as well.
on February 07, 2003
Sprinkle the magic powder on the old woman sweeping the floor to get a small fairy that you can catch. This only applies early in the game.
