Bottle Fishing Hole
To get it:
Go to the fishing hole, and find the sign that says: No Littering! You can get a bottle if you fish on the left side of the bridge that is near that sign. Its darker water than normal.
Get all four bottles! You can use the bottles after you have used what is inside it!

1: The bottle which has milk in it at the beginning of the game.

2: Buy the bottle of lantern oil from the guy with the nest on his head

3: Fish out the bottle in the fishing hole. It is found by the sign that says ''No littering the fish are crying!''

4: Kill 20 poes and go to Jovani's house and you get a bottle of fairy's tears
bye bye disk
I don't know if it works for other games but I know it does for this. It's easy. Remove the disk, and you'll be playing without a disk!


The following will require you to put the disk back in:
Looking at world map, mail from postman, hidden skills, golden bugs
Going to a different area or inside building
Changing armor or sword
transforming into wolf/human
Viewing options
Opening chests
Looking out the window at Link's house
Can't get rupees higher than 1 (only happens once after turning the game on)
Getting mail from postman (untested)
fighting bosses (untested)
Catching fish
Obtaining hidden skills
Collecting golden bugs
Collecting Poe's souls
collecting pieces of hearts (untested)

I think that's all of them. If there are more, tell me (if you can).

Trust me, me and my friend tried most of them and took out the disk at least 100 times. We did this for an hour.
Cave of Ordeals - Replenishing Dig Spots
For anyone having trouble clearing the Cave of Ordeals, I thought I'd make a list of all the dig spots you can find within, while in wolf form. I scanned every floor, and this is what I found:

Floor 3 (Baku Baba plants) - Dig in middle of room, under the Baku Baba, for one replenishing heart.

Floor 7 - Dig in the opposite side of the room from where you entered to find 3 replenishing hearts.

Floor 14 (flying skulls) - Dig by the room's exit to find an ORANGE RUPEE (worth 100). Very useful if you've used up rupees using the Magic Armor.

Floor 18 (spinning creatures) - Dig right beneath where you entered for one replenishing heart.

Floor 19 (chus) - No dig spot, but there is a rare chu (sparkling) that drops from the ceiling on the opposite side of the room from where you enter. Catch it before a purple chu absorbs it, and you'll have a premium healing jelly to use in the Cave of Ordeals.

Floor 22 (rats and bats) - Dig in middle of room for 3 replenishing hearts.

Floor 27 - Dig in the opposite side of the room from where you entered to find one replenishing heart.

Floor 33 (chus, invisible rats) - Dig in spot between where you entered the room and where you exit for one replenishing heart.

Floor 39 (Darknuts) - Dig in middle of room for a SILVER RUPEE (worth 200). Again, very useful for using the Magic Armor.

Floor 45 - Dig right beneath where you entered room for 3 replenishing hearts.

Hope this proves useful to someone.
Death Mountain ChuChus
In the circular area with the Howling Stone, if you face north, there will be a small alcove on the right that a Bulblin was. If you use your Clawshot to go up, there will be a ChuChu of random color. You can even see the Rare ChuChu, and its jelly has the same effect as Fairy Tears.

In order for the ChuChu to reset, you have to basically leave Death Mountain and Kakariko Village, though.
Distract The Final Boss
In the final boss battle, cast the fishing rod to distract him and get in a few easy hits.

Double Your Bombag Sizes
To do this, go to the upper zora's river and defeat the enemies to open up a portal there. A woman will be standing there thanking you. Talk to her and she will lead you into the house overlooking the river. The game is to shoot bomb arrows at rocks to open up the river for her customers. Not only will she give you another bomb bag, but if you play the game again and shoot the jars to where you get 25 points, she will give you the giant bomb bags.
Easier way to complete hot springwater sidequest
During the sidequest where you have to bring a Goron hot springwater, you can wear the Magic Armor to make it easier. You should only use around 150-300 rupees.
Easy money
First of all you need access to the cave of ordeals. Go there if you kill as much monsters as you can you get alot of rupees
Easy room in the Cave of Ordeals
When you're in the Cave of Ordeals, (you know, that place in the desert where you have to fight all those enemies) when you get to the room with the Dinalfos, shoot a slingshot pellet in the middle of the room. They'll rush over to investigate, and when they do, shoot a bomb arrow in the middle of their little group and BOOM!!!
Easy Rupies
To get easy rupees, simply go to the graveyard behind Ronado's Teepee and kill all the Crows in the area. After defeating all, some rupees should drop down by the stairs.
Epona, stay!
If you go somewhere while riding your horse, do whatever you need to, and when you get back, your horse will be where you last saw her. Trust me!
at night launch bomb arrows in the air and instead of random blasts they are fireworks
Free Arrows
Go to goblin archers( normally found in the field.) and let them shoot at you.Avoid the arrow/fire arrow and before it dissapears,walk over it. You should take it. I love doing this if I need arrows.
Free items
When you are a wolf in Hyrule Castle Town, you can scare the guards in the northern section. If you hit them via a spin attack, they'll drop items.
Frog Fishing Lure
To unlock this item, you must beat all eight levels of Roal Goal. This game is found in the owner's establishment. Press C button, in the first person you see.

Get a piece of heart
go to gerudo desert and go to the camp place just before you enter the temple. there is a boar roasting over a fire. just keep hitting it or do the secret skill 5 (where you go up to an enemy and press a). do this and you will get a free heart piece. PS you can also do this when you have to go to the mirror of twilight.
Get through the deep snow easy
It is very annoying going through the deep snow while in human form, but there is an easy way to get through it without going into wolf form. All you have to do is get on the spinner and ride the short distances, but you have to be on a flat surface before you start spinning.
hidden rupee
need one hudred more rupees? if you do go to Ordon village,go to Collin\'s house. if you look behind it you will see an orange get it you can use either the clawshot or the gale boomerang.
How to Fill Up Multiple Bottles With Fairy's Tears
As you know, just like the elixir soup from Wind Waker, you can only get a bottle of Fairy's Tears from one of the springs if you are out of them (after completing the Cave of Ordeals). This means you can ordinarily only carry one bottle of the Tears at a time.

Well, if you want to try the challenge of it, there is a way to get two, three, or even all four bottles filled with Fairy's Tears. Quite simply, even if you currently have a bottle of them, you CAN get another - if you complete the Cave of Ordeals again (without using up the bottle you already have in the process). By doing this, you have the potential to fill up your 4 bottles with the Tears. A key to succeeding is this: Use your Magic Armor whenever needed while your life is full. This way (assuming you've learned the final hidden skill) you can use the Great Spin to wipe out enemies with one attack, usually. And since the enemies drop green, blue, and yellow rupees, you can still manage to use the Magic Armor on the Darknut rooms at the end. Try it out if you want the challenge!
How to get rupees
Behind the guy who shots a cannon should be a house shot the red/orange tile and it will give you 20 rupees after get shot to the game. after gettin shot stay where you are and hit the weather thingy on the roof to make the rotating land stop spinin . then go play the game and land on the rotating surface which u stopped from rotating. There should be a chest there which gives you 100 rupees and below that should be another chest it has a heart piece and the rest of the chest give you rupees and keep doing this for INFINITE RUPEES!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How to get the Magic Armor
Go to Malo Mart and Deposit 200 Ruppies (Make sure the bridge is fixed) Then exit Malo Mart and Warp to the Castle Road then transform into a human then walk backwards then you will meet the postman you will get a letter from Malo Mart then enter the castle town eastern road and enter the shop and buy the Magic Armor then you will complete the sidequest for the Magic Armor.

Note: the magic Armor is very expensive and you will lose ruppies instead of life if you have ruppies

Infinite Fairy Tears
After you defeat every level of the Cave of Ordeals, you can go to one of the ancient spirits (in any of the springs with fairies in them) and talk to them, they'll take you back to the Great Fairy and she'll fill an empty bottle with Great Fairy's Tears. She'll keep doing this aslong as you have an empty bottle. She'll warp you out of the cave after she fills it.
Lake Hylia Cuccoo Game
When playing the game at Lake Hylia, set the iron boots to one of your items. Fly directly towards the top block and right before it, use the iron boots.

You'll plummet straight onto the block, enabling you to collect all the treasures.
Magic Armor
Here are the directions to get the magic armor:

1. Go to malo mart and donate 1'000 rupees to the ugly goron inside to get the eastern hyrule bridge fixed.

(the next part is optional, but if you dont do it then to get the second malo mart built you'l have to donate 2'000 rupees instead of 200)

2. Talk to the other ugly goron outside. he says that his son has not come back yet. so go to the eastern bridge and talk to him.

3. Go back to the ugly Goron and he will give you hot spring water. run it down to the Goron and he will run into town.

4. Go donate 200 rupees to malo mart and then go to castle town.

5. Once in the center of castle town, you will see the second malo mart. (trust me, you'll notice it). then go inside and you'll see the magic armor for 598 rupees!
Make money come to you!
If you see rupees on a ledge or anywhere you can't reach take out your gale boomerang (if you have it) and target the rupee(s).They will come to you!
Mario ref.
I've heard that there is no mario referance in Twilight Princess. That is a LIE! you know fyer, right? (the old wierd clown by the cannon) look carefully at his sleeve on your left (his right). you will see a bullet bill. Is it just me or has mario been to waaaaay to many places
money /hearts/arrows from guards
If you got o castle town as a wolf(cant have gate to barrier opened)and run up to the guards they will get scared. when they come back do a spin attack at them they might drop anything. p.s:might drop bomb or shoot arrow at you!!!
Money doesn't grow on trees you know; but rupees do!
Do you remember the trees near your house back in Ordon? Well, if you but into them with a roll attack, rupees fall off. The rupees are usually green, blue or yellow. It's an easy was to get rupees at the start of the game.
Monkey Dance!
If you've just started the first dungeon and just saved the third monkey, stand still and wait for the monkey to stop clapping, and then he or she will dance!My baby sister likes monkeys so much, when I play my game, she says "Where monkey go?"!
Need help with finding haert pieces ?
this is simple all you need to is go to the castle town. Find a fortune teller and selet LOVE. This will cost you 10 rubies. You will see a picture of a area if you go there as Link/wolf link there should see a near by tresure chest that will have what your looking for.
one way or another.
getting the money enough to donate to the old goron in malo mart can be rather bothersome... 2000 rupee\'s isent chump change...but if you looking to do it... do it rite.. and with a plan.. if you collect golden bugs.. you know the ones that are ALL OVER THE PLACE!. if you get the male and female for each bug and then go to castle town there is a girl who will give you good cash for them.. and when you give her your first bug.. she will give you a bigger wallett. the shop she is in is in the south western corner area...
she will give you 50 for one and 100 for a pair... so use her flow of cash wizely and dont over do it so you wont loose money... and donate your heart out.. the armor is worth it.
if you run out of bugs you can always look around the fields of hyrule to fine areas where you use special items.. those have money or heart pieces.. you can also look aroung for rocks or grass that is in a ring shape and dig throung the middle as a wolf... youll find an under ground secret area.. ( more on those later.. im making a list of them and where they are...) any way it may be slow going but you can also go through temples that you where not able to get all the money from the chests cuz your wallett was full.. just make sure you have enoug money gathered to buy the armor.. hope i helped!
email me!
Paying Iza 10 Rupees
If you've unlocked the boat mini game in upper Zoras River, go there and equip bomb arrows. Then, if you see a jar next to Iza, shoot it with the bomb arrows and she will tell you to pay her 10 rupees for shooting it.
Perfect Ending!
Whenever you're done beating an enemy(not a boss) by using a hidden skill, keep on pressing A, and then you'll put your sword away perfectly!
Purlo's allergies
If you're in castle town as a wolf, and you want to see something funny, go into the tent at the west road and the guy who challenges you when you're human will say something and sneeze!
Rupee values

Blue = 5
Yellow = 10
Red = 20

Rupees that don't disappear

silver rupee in kakario village
be wolf link and go to the big white house and use minda to jump up and hit the bell with a bomb arrow for rupee
Skullfish & bombfish
Head north from Kakariko Village to the Bridge of Eldin. Just before you reach the arch of the bridge, turn left. A little bit past the bricks on the ground is another patch of brown dirt. Dig here to find the grotto. Then fish out the three skullfish and kill them, now you can catch the bombfish. Once you catched the bombfish you can add it to your bomb bag. But there are pretty tricky to catch!
steal but not get in trouble
If you're low on hearts, then go to the birds shop in the Faron woods or whatever and use a bottle on the red potion, then drink it. Do this until you have all hearts left .You shouldn't get in trouble, but it could not work, I've only done it once.
Steal but not steal
You can steal from the blue bird's shop in Faron woods but not really steal!

Buy something but instead of putting 30 rupees, you can put in one and he wont get mad at you! He will call you a cheapskate though but he wont go over and hurt you
stuck in the lake
if you have recently gotten the water to rise in the lake, and you are having troublefinding your way back to the zora's place.. then just take a ride in the canon! also you can use a chicken and float down using the left hand rupee simbles and land on the rotating platform and find a chest.... there is 50 rupees in it and you can hop down the levels opeing chests for money if you need...( yes the guy dressed as a clown up where the chickens are is gay...)
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Hint - Money Loop

In order to get infinite money in Lake Hylia, you have to play Falbi's Flight by Fowl Game. The first time you play, land on the rotating platform for 100 rupees. The next platform has a piece of heart. When you ask to get shot up to the house with cuccos (Falbi's Flight by Fowl), first, use to gale boomerang on the top of the house, make sure to hit the red/orange tiles on the cannon house.

This will net you a red rupee, worth 20 rupees. Then, once you are shot up, do not move to another platform and get to where you can see the wind direction rooster thing and hit it with the gale boomerang, you must z-target. An unskippable cut-scene will show that the chest on the rotating platform has been closed and once again filled with 100 rupees. You can also just save your game and restart for the chest to be refilled.

You can do this as many times as you like for rupees to buy the Magic Armor (598 rupees) and donate money to Malo Mart to fix the bridge and start a Castle Town Malo Mart Branch.
The Legendary Hylian Loach
<font size=1>Y<span style="color:purple;">ou must have the Frog or Sinking Lure to get this big follow, once you have one of the lures rent a bout form Hena -make sure it's summer time- and go to the north-most tip of the Fishing Hole where the lily pads float and cast your rod in the lily pads, there are other fish here to.

Tips on fighting Ganondorf
<font size=1><span style="color:green;">There are loads of ways to defeat Ganondorf, here is my way to defeat him.

Keep Backslicing him, he will block the first two or three times but just keep doing it and you will hit him.
Two Poes Equals Happy Souls
There are two Poe's that are hard to find and I'm going to tell you where they are. =]

The first Poe is at the Snowpeak top. No, it's not inside. What you need to do:
Turn into Wolf link(makes it MUCH easier) and start walking to the little mountain that is right next to the goal when you play the Mini game.
Climb up the mountain(and yes you CAN do this) and wait for nightfall. And when you're waiting you can dig up some treasure there.

The Second:
Is in the Sacred Garden. When you defeat Skull kid the second time, there is a rock next to the tallest rock formation. Bomb it and a Poe will come out =D

Good luck and have fun!

Hogs go Off The Edge!
In order to make the hogs near kakariko die , follow these steps.

1.shoot all the enemy's that r riding them.
2. Get on a hog and ride it near the edge, facing the edge.
3. get off the hog and then attack its but.
4. It has now ran off the edge of a cliff!
Sera's Cat glitch
You can only do this glitch when Sera's cat is on the roof. =D
(I think that only happens near the start of the game.)

Anyways, when you see the cat on the roof of her house, don't come too close, but close enough for you to be able to hit it with a jump attack. Now, if you do a jump attack right on the cat (you can't L-target), link should be doing something like a cross of a jump attack and a spin attack while Sera's cat jumps down and back into the shop.

You can get the cat back on the roof by entering a building.

Easter eggs

Back to top
Easy money at the begining of the game
Go into the main part of ordon village and pick up the pumkins, and throw them at something hard, almost every time a rupie will come out, good for getting money for the slighshot.
Get 30 Rupies quickly
go into castle town and go through the exit that goes to the depressed goron that fixes the bridge. go onto the bridge closest to the castle, kill the monsters so they wont bug you, equip the bow and hawkeye combo.
zoom in on the castle and you will see a bunch of birds, snipe them all down and a hail of rupies falls on the bridge, there is 1 yellow rupie, 3 blue rupies, and 5 green rupies!
Get into trouble
go to the rock with the guy that tells you about the grass that lets you summon the hawk, smash a pumpkin and he will yell at you
Get the Frog Lure
go into the fishing place, use the C Up stick to look into the top left corner, near the pictures, at the game rollgoal, to play it costs 5 rupies, but fi you win you get ten, and if you beat 8 levels you will get the frog lure, letting you catch bass and even the elusive hyilan loach. to play move the glass ball to the other goal, over the beams, easier said than done, but do not worry about the time limit, it will not effect you if you are good enough, thre trick is gently roll the ball to any corner, and then move the camera with the C stick, to the way the beam is facing, then roll it to the next corner and repeat the process. for curves, which dosen't show up for a while, just go as far as you can without falling off then change the camera, and the really tricky part, the dip, you move it up and down the dip until you have enough momentem to get up to the next part without going so fast you fall off, and for the part where hou only have one spot to get up onto, roll it up to the spot and before it has time to fall off quickly move it over to the goal
looking cool while running
When ever you are running around, hold the "B" button like you do to make a spin attack. you will pull back your sword, but not swing it, or charge. if you stop, you will do a normal spin attack.
Majora's Mask moon

Mario Reference
There IS a Mario reference in Twilight Princess, evn though people says there isn't. Go to Lake Hylia, and go to Fyer. (The person that owns the cannon, in other words) Look at his arms, and lo and behold, a Bullet Bill sits atop them. Mario has been to a lot of places, has he not?
Musical Cues!
In Zelda, depending on what's going on, the music changes! On Weather or not your riding the horse, the music gets deeper, and if you just stop, the music goes into a simple "waiting" sort of tune, which will then change and turn back to the regular traveling music one you start to move again.
Silver rupee in Kakariko Village!
There's a bell ontop of the Shamen's house, in Kakariko Village. Hit this bell with a bomb arrow. You'll hear a sound and something will drop. Jump up to the roof of the building using your Wolf powers and there you'll find a silver rupee!
Tingle's own easter egg.
In Hyrule Caslte, when you're just about to fight ganondorf, look out to hyrule feild. Do this on the top or down below, but do NOT go to ganons door. If you look hard enough, you'll see tingle towers top. Cool, huh?

Silver Rupee *yay*
You can find a silver rupee before you give all the Poe souls to Jovani. It is in the Cave of Ordeals. After you fight the two Dark Nuts, (room 39) use your wolf senses. In the middle of the room, or somewhere, is a shining spot, dig there and you should find a silver rupee.
Stupid Skullfish!!!!!
Go to Lake Bed Temple, then go over to that bi---- of a staircase. Then go to the bottom of it and you will see some skullfish, okay a LOT. And then all you have to do is just throw the rod in the water and wait for one to come--it's hard to be patient--yawn. A lot of them will fight over it, which will give you more time for the bobber to go in, and then when it goes in get it with it showing fish on, and then when you catch one it says it's too forbidden and it doesn't even let you put it in your journal.
