Attack of the flying chickens!!!!

Ok this cheat is very easy to do all you have to do is go to the house where you started and attack the chicken outside and corner it and keep hitting it with your sword and soon waves of flying angry chickens will come and attack to stop this exit the screen or get killed by the chickens (How embarrassing).

Never Ever Underestimate the power of the chickens!

Beach Passage!

Ok, on Toronbo Shores go near the the very end near that monkey thing. Throw a bomb at the spot that looks like it is a passage and tada. I don't know what is in it though I went in and there was nothing.

Mod Edit: Once you obtain the Magnifying Lens, the final item in the trading game, there will be a moblin in the cave. He'll ask for the item in your B-Slot. If you put the shovel in there, he'll trade you for your Boomerang. The Boomerang in this game is actually a very powerful weapon, and a decent replacement for your shovel, since its useless once you've gotten the prize for 20 Secret Seashells.

Better Sword

We all know that if you get a lot of secret seashells something good is bound to happen, but they don't tell how good of a thing. If you get 20 of these shells and bring them to the Seashell Mansion they will give you the second sword. And a neat thing about this sword is if you have full life you can shoot with it.

Bonus Seashells

Find exactly five secret seashells, then go to the Seashell Mansion. Enter, then walk right until finding the water flowing up a big pipe. Another bonus shell can be found by doing this with exactly ten seashells.

Note: Return to the Seashell Mansion with twenty seashells to obtain a level two power sword. This sword can shoot when your character's life is full.

Exploding arrows!

First equip the arrows and bombs. Then press the button that the bomb is equiped to. Then very quick after, press the button that the arrows are equiped too. Then an arrow will be flying with a bomb on top of it. It'll explode when it hits something. These are very powerful. So try it!!!

Free Money

In the shop in the first village if you dont want to buy the items and you dont have enough money for example the arrows are 980 rubees. Who would want to pay for that! So pick the arrows up and bring them over to the store clerk but do not go in front of him and do not talk to him. Go on the side closest to the board of items and wait until he looks at you and imediatley run to the door. If you are fast enough then you get the item for free but if you are not you have to do it again. Once you get out, the game will say that you just got something for free are you proud of your self! When you go back in he will have his back to the item board and will zap you when you go in and will kill you but you will still have the item you stole!

Mod Note: Also note, that once you do this, you will be called "THIEF" wheverer your name was supposed to be used for the remainder of the game.

Infinite Rupees

You do not need to do anything special for this cheat apart from gain access to the DX Dungeon.

Go inside, and in the room with the FOUR statues you have to change colors, there is a hollow space in the sout wall. Poke the wall with your sword untill you hear a clanking noise. Bomb that part, and go through the hole. There will be a room filled with green Rupees. These are worth five regular Rupees.
Once you get all the Rupees, exit the dungeon. Go back inside, go to the green Rupee room, and the Rupees will be there again! Keep doing this until you have the desired amount of cash.

Mad Batter Locations

There are three places where the Mad Batter is located. The first location is in the Mysterious Forest. Go to the fairy in the Mysterious Forest and move left one screen. Lift the rock to reveal a secret stairway. Descend and sprinkle magic powder on the well. The second location is two screens to the right of the ghost's house. Blow up the bushes with explosive arrows. Jump the pit and enter, then move across the cave and swim through the water with your flippers. After leaving the water, move left and walk down the stairway. Again, sprinkle magic powder on the well. The final location is at Tal Tal Heights. Go to the Hen House and move left one screen. A lone bush will eventually appear after a couple of screens. Cut it to reveal another stairway. Go across the cave and get out. Keep moving left and up the mountain, then move left again. A lone rock should appear. Pick it up and walk down the stairways. Sprinkle magic powder again. Link should get 60 Arrows, 60 Bombs, and 40 Magic Powder.

Secret Armor(Red or Blue)

This is a great secret! Okay, first, make sure you have the Pegasus shoes. Go inside the library in Mabe Village, and look on top of the northernmost book shelf. On top is a book! Simply dash into the shelf using your pegasus shoes to knock it down. Walk to it when it's on the ground, and press "A." The game will ask you how it got there (or something like that). press "A" again. The book will give you directions below:

3 4 5
2 1

(The 1 has a south-pointing arrow, 2 has an east-pointing arrow, 3 is north-pointing, 4 is pointing west, and 5 is pointing north)
These are grave-pushing directions. Go to the cemetery, locating somewhere southeast of the Witch's Hut. Find the screen where there's five gravestones. Kill all the ghosts here, then stand behind the lower-right gravestone. Push it down. Now, stand on the left side of the lower-middle stone, and push it east. Go up to the upper-left one, and push it north. Go to the upper-middle one, and push it left. Push the upper-right stone north. Stairs leading down will appear. Go down them to enter a secret dungeon! Beat this dungeon to pick either red or blue clothes (blue doubles your defense, while red doubles your attacking power). Sorry I couldn't give directions on how to beat the dungeon.

Bow wow forever!! yay!!

We all want to keep Bow wow, right? Well I'll tell you how. You only have to skip to the third dungeon, easy right? No not easy, so I'll tell you how to do it. O.K. you know the hole in the first dungeon in the boss room? Well fall in it. ( you must have bow wow when you do this) when your character just enters the pit and is falling use the roc's feather. You must have great timing. If you time it right, you will be in this crazy world. In the world, wander around long enough and you will eventually fall into one of the dungeons. When you fall into the third dungeon, beat it. When you beat the third dungeon, you will still have bow wow and not have to give him back to madame meow meow. To get the magnifying lens just give the stick to tarrin. However you do not have the stick? Yes you do. When you beat the third dungeon you will get an invisible stick so you can continue the trading process. hope this cheat works .

Once you start up your game boy, hit b up, or a up, or b left, or a left (ect) and the color will change! Play the game with the changed color then save and turn it off. If you do this enough times a lot of stuff will be invisible for around a week or 2. note: it is annoying if your trying to beat the game when you have stuff invisible.
