Hello, and welcome to yet another Zelda 64 Guide. Hopefully, you will find
this one useful to you. I am making this so people who get the game on 
Christmas will find it useful. This guide lists many secrets not found on
most internet based guides. If you would like to take from this guide, just
give some credit to me. Now, on with the show!

7. Version Updates for Part 2
-----------------------------

Version 1.3: January 28, 1999 - Fixed some minor details, added a bit more to
the boss help.
Version 1.2: January 15, 1999 - Added more detail to learning songs, fixed
date for Version 1.1.
Version 1.1: January 10, 1999 - More minor editing. Fixed the TOC.
Version 1: December 12, 1998 - Started the dang thing, duh!

--------------------------------
8. Where to find the 10 Big Poes
--------------------------------

The 10 Big Poes must be hunted using Epona. Otherwise, the Poe you begin to
fight is a regular Poe which does not count toward the total. You need to
capture all 10 Big Poes into a bottle and hand it over to the Ghost Hunter
in Hyrule Market. Catching Poes is NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE without Epona. Again, it
can be done without her (with a 1% chance), but it is much easier with her.
You need to make the Poes reveal themselves and then hit it twice with 
arrows. Your skills need to be sharp so you can hit them. Also, make sure you
have a bottle ready and don't try to get one if you are full. The Poe spirit
will disappear if you do not have a bottle ready. You can tell if the enemy 
you killed was a Poe or Big Poe if the spirit left behind is yellow. Yellow
equals Big Poe. Purple equals Poe.

Oh yeah, you want to know why to hunt Big Poes in the first place? Go to the
How to get hard to find items section.

First Poe
Northwest section of Hyrule Field. Ride around the brush until you reveal a
Big Poe.

Second Poe
The sign near Hyrule Castle. Brush by it to reveal a Big Poe.

Third Poe
The bottom V-Shaped wall east of Lon Lon Ranch. Brush by it to reveal a Big 
Poe.

Fourth Poe
The lookout point near Kakariko Village. Go under the little bridge to 
reveal a Big Poe.

Fifth Poe
Southeast section of Hyrule Field. Ride around the brush until you reveal a
Big Poe.

Sixth Poe
Southeast section of Hyrule Field. Ride around the brush until you reveal a
Big Poe.

Seventh Poe
The intersection near Gerudo Valley. Ride on the path until you reveal a Big
Poe.

Eighth Poe
The tree near the north end of the intersection. Brush by it to reveal a Big
Poe.

Ninth Poe
The tree north of the entrance of Lon Lon Ranch. Brush by it to reveal a Big
Poe.

Tenth Poe

The Big Rock at the beginning of the gap of the Y-Shaped Path. Brush by it to
reveal a Big Poe.

IF YOU NEED HELP, PLEASE LOOK AT THE HYRULE CASTLE MAP (CAN BE FOUND AT
GAMEFAQS.COM, LOOK UNDER ZELDA: OCARINA OF TIME).

-----------------------------
9. How to get Epona the Horse
-----------------------------

Epona the horse will be a very powerful ally in unlocking some of the 
secrets in Zelda 64. It isn't easy for the beginner to get Epona even though
they know it's possible (looking at the title screen). The start of getting
Epona begins in the beginning of the game.

Make sure you learn Epona's Song as a child. Malon will teach it to you when
you go to Lon Lon Ranch.

When you are an adult, go to Lon Lon Ranch. Something has changed as Ingo now
seems to control the ranch and praises Lord Ganondorf. Talk to him and pay to
ride a horse. Play Epona's Song and Epona will come to you. Climb on her and
talk to Ingo while on her. He will propose a race for 50 Rupees. Agree.

The 1st race is very easy, use a carrot, stay in Ingo's way and use a carrot
when it comes back. The race is only one lap so you can gun it at the end.

He is a sore loser and he will ask for another race. The 2nd race is a bit
harder. You should use more carrots and stay in his way as much as possible.
If you run of carrots (you shouldn't, but it is easy to do) just stay in his 
way. You will get all 6 carrots back at once after some time.

If you win the 2nd race, you get Epona, but you can't get her out of the 
ranch the easy way. Instead, run around the track for a few laps. Go toward
one of the barriers and jump it at full blast. If you are good, you will 
switch to a small cinema showing you jumping out of Lon Lon Ranch onto Hyrule
Field. Good job, you got Epona!

However, when you start a game over and end up at the Temple of Time, you 
can't find Epona! Easy way to get her back, just play Epona's Song and she 
will come running at you. You can also do this to summon her in areas or to
make her to come to you.

------------------------
10. All 13 Ocarina Songs
------------------------

There really is no point to this since you can get the songs in the 
subscreen. But, hey, if you were like me you don't like to look at the 
subscreen over and over. This is for the lazy people who don't want to write.
Enjoy!

-Zelda's Lullaby - C+Left, C+Up, C+Right, C+Left, C+Up, C+Right

anywhere in world for advice.

-Sun's Song - C+Right, C+Down, C+Up, C+Right, C+Down, C+Up
To learn the Sun Song, go to Kakariko Graveyard and play Zelda's Lullaby at
the Triforce Symbol at the northern most grave. Jump in the hole and kill all
the enemies in the first room. After that, run by all the Redeads in the next
room and reach the small room after that. In there, look at the enscription

Redead/Gibdo and to change the time from Day to Night in the outside world.

-Song of Time - C+Right, A, C+Down, C+Right, A, C+Down
To learn the Song of Time, go to the Temple of Time after gettting the

the music man your Ocarina to learn the Song of Storms. The Song of Storms
is used to create rain and lightning as well as create hidden effects.

-Minuet of Forest - A, C+Up, C+Left, C+Right, C+Left, C+Right
To learn the Minuet of the Forest, go to northern most area in the Sacred 
Meadow Valley. Sheik will teach you the song. To learn it, you must have the

symbol in the Sacred Meadow Valley.

-Bolero of Fire - C+Down, A, C+Down, A, C+Right, C+Down, C+Right, C+Down
To learn the Bolero of Fire, go to the other side of the broken bridge in

Triforce symbol in the Death Mountain Crater.

-Serenade of Water - A, C+Down, C+Right, C+Right, C+Left
To learn the Serenade of Water, beat the White Wolfos in the Ice Cavern.

To learn the Nocturne of Shadow, go to Kakariko Village. You must have beaten
the Forest, Fire, and Water temples. Sheik will teach you the song. The

beating your first temple. Go to where the Master Sword and Sheik will teach
the Prelude of Light. The Prelude of Light is used to warp you to the white
Triforce symbol in the Temple of Time.

-Scarecrow's Song - ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?
(Okay, now I put the ? because you make the Scarecrow's Song. This song is 
not needed, but you need it to get some hearts and gold skulltulas. To start
learning it, go to Lake Hylia. Talk to Bonooru the Scarecrow. Play for him a
song with at least 2 notes. Now, go back to Lake Hylia as an adult and play
the song you played as a child for him. If you play the exact song, you will
gain the Scarecrow's Song. The notes are the song you played for him. You can
go back in time and change the song, but you'll have to play it for him
again. The song won't appear in the Subscreen. The point of the song is to
have Pierre the scarecrow appear in certain places. You can tell if the 
song is useful if Navi turns green and goes to a faraway place. Play the
song and see what happens).

there will some ice blocks. Follow them down to the switch. Longshot onto
the treasure chest that appears on the platform you were on. Open it.

-How do I get the Biggoron Sword?

I've saved the best for last my friends! Look at the item description of it 
if you want to know why it is so good. BTW, all this is done when you are an
adult.

First, go to Kakariko Village and talk to the chicken lady. She will give you
a Pocket Egg. Let it hatch into a Pocket Cucco. Use the Pocket Cucco to 
wake up Talon who is sleeping with the two fat ladies in Kakariko town. Bring
back the Pocket Cucco to the chicken lady and you will get Cojiro, the blue
Cucco.

Bring Cojiro to the man who is sitting near the log where the lone skull kid
used to be. Give it to him in exchange for the Odd Mushroom. Run, don't walk
with the Odd Mushroom since it will expire if you are slow. Bring the Odd
Mushroom to the Old Lady's Potion shop in Kakariko Village (use the exit in 
the other Potion Shop). She will give you the Odd Medicine. Bring the Odd
Medicine to the Lost Woods, but instead of the man, you will see a Kokiri
girl. Give her the medicine and you will get the Poacher's Saw.

Go to Gerudo Valley and cross the bridge using Epona or a Hookshot. Give the
man the Poacher's Saw and he will give you the broken Goron sword. Bring the
Goron Sword to the top of Death Mountain (where the entrance to Death 
Mountain Cavern is). Go to the right side and a big Goron should appear. Give
him the Broken Sword and he will give you the Prescription.

Go to Zora's Domain and show King Zora the Prescription (only if he is
defrosted). He will give you an eyeball frog to take to the Old Man in Lake
Hylia. Again, run, don't walk, to Lake Hylia. When you get there, trade the
frog for the Eye Drops. You'll have to run again since the Eye Drops can
expire. This time, run to Death Mountain.

I suggest using the Magic Plant here since it can fly you up very quickly. 
Otherwise, you may lose too much time. When you get to Biggoron, give him the
Eye Drops and he will give you the Claim Check. Wait a few days and give him
the Claim Check when he is ready. You will now recieve the Biggoron Sword, 
the real "Master Sword".

--------------------------
12. How to beat the Bosses
--------------------------

How to beat: Parasitic Armored Arachnid - GOHMA

Pretty easy if you know what you are doing. Just Z-Target her, get the 
Slingshot ready. When her eye is red, fire away. She will be stunned for some
time so use this time to take out your sword and jump attack her while she
is slumped on the ground. She will jump up back onto the ceiling. If you are
slow and cannot attack quickly, she will start sending out some Gohma Spawn,
which you should kill quickly as possible. Try and keep her Z-Targeted at all
times. Repeat the process until dead.

How to beat: Infernal Dinosaur - KING DODONGO

The King is hard to beat since you probably won't realize how to kill him at
first. It took me awhile as well. First, stand near the edge of the lava. 
Make sure not to touch it however. That way, when the King rolls around or
shoots lava, you will not get hurt. After he crashes after he stops rolling,
grab on of the Bomb Flowers laying around (only if he is close, if he is on
the other side of the room, don't try anything until he gets closer). Run to
him while you hold the Bomb Flower. When he opens his mouth, Z-Target it and
throw the flower in. If you were good enough, he should swallow it and it 
will explode in his tummy. He'll fall down, leaving a good opening to use
a Jump Attack. Repeat the process until dead.

How to beat: Bio-Electric Anemone - BARINADE

To begin, Barinade goes through many forms. In his first form, Z-Target the
top parts of him and attack them with a boomerang. After that, he will
release some pods that will circle him. Attack them until the main body opens
up. When it does, hit it with a boomerang. Barinade will become blue and you
can attack with a jump attack. Repeat the process until dead.

How to beat: Evil Spirit from Beyond - PHANTOM GANON

There are two forms of Phantom Ganon. In the first, there are two Ganons, one
fake, the other real. The Ganons come through the pictures all over the room.
You need to hit the Ganon with a bow when it comes out (if it is the real
one). So, keep your bow trained on a Ganon coming at you from a picture. If 
the Ganon you are targeting turns back at the last moment, it is a fake. Roll
to the edge of the platform to avoid the attack from the real Ganon. Keep
trying until the Phantom Ganon goes to the next form. In the second form,
the Phantom Ganon will fire magic balls at you. Just use your sword to swing
it back at him. He may or may not swing it back at you. Keep playing tennis
until he gets hit and stunned. When stunned, jump in for the kill. Repeat
the process until dead.

How to beat: Subterranean Lava Dragon - VOLVAGIA

You know that game with the moles that you hit with a hammer? This is what it
would be like in 3-D. Volvagia pokes his head out of a hole and you have to
hit him with the Megaton Hammer. Make sure it isnt a decoy poke out since 
you'll lose precious time recovering from the attack. Every once in awhile,
Volvagia will fly out. You can attack him when he is flying, but it isnt
recommended. When he is flying, rocks of lava will fall, but just keep moving
to avoid them. Repeat the process until dead.

How to beat: Giant Aquatic Amoeba - MORPHA

Morpha is very easy to beat. Since you have the Longshot, you can get him so
far away he can't attack you. Just Z-Target the little ball in one of the
tentacles. Pull it towards you with the Longshot and then hit it with your 
sword. Each time the ball returns, a new tentacle appears. Make sure to avoid
the tentacle attacks and just keep Z-Targeting the ball from far away. Repeat
the process until dead.

How to beat: Phantom Shadow Beast - BONGO BONGO

You can tell if Bongo Bongo is going to attack if his hand stops pounding on
the platform. To attack him, just hit his hands with a bow shot. Magic pots
and arrows come out of a sucessful arrow shot. When both hands are blue, use
the Eye of Truth to find the Eye. Hit the Eye with a Bow Shot and than Jump
Attack him while stunned. If you are slow, the hands will recover and you
will have to start over. Repeat the process until dead.

How to beat: Sorceress Sisters - TWINROVA

The first form his somewhat hard. You should not Z-Target a single witch
until you reflect energy. Then, you should Z-Target the witch you want to 
hit. The way to harm the witches is hard to do. You need to wait till one of 
the witches fires a beam at you. Bring out your shield and reflect the beam 
toward the other witch. Repeat until they turn into one boss. The second form
is easy to beat compared to the first. Just Z-Target the witch and show your 
shield. Have the shield contain the energy blasts from the witch. Make sure 
to contain 3 of the same shot in a row. (Ex. If you start with ice blasts,
make sure to only contain ice blasts, jump out of the way of fire blasts). 
When you collect 3 of the same shot in a row, you will fire it back at the 
witch. She will become stunned. Just jump onto where she is and jump attack.
Running over there with Hover Boots is a time saver. Repeat the process until
dead.

How to beat: King of Thieves - GANONDORF

In the beginning, if you fall with the platform climb up and jump to one of
the corners of the room. I suggest keeping Hover Boots on the whole fight, 
you will see why. If you stand in one of the ledges, Ganondorf may use an
attack to knock the whole ledge down. He won't use that if you are in a 
corner. Usually, Ganondorf attacks like Phantom Ganon's 2nd form, using 
energy balls. Just reflect it back to him with a sword shot until he is 
stunned. While stunned, use a Light Arrow to make him fall to the center 
platform. Then, walk over to the center platform and use a jump attack to
hurt him. You might be able to do two, but I'm careful and I walk back to the
corner. If you see Ganon drawing a lot of energy, fight a Light Arrow at him
as soon as possible. He will use his super attack if you allow him to use
his attack and it does hurt. The Light Arrow will cancel the attack as well
as allowing you to go in for another attack. If you run out of magic, hearts
or arrows, just drop down to below the battle room back to the room with the
pots. There are plenty of items you can get to replenish your supplies. 
Repeat the process until dead.

How to beat: GANON

Pretty dang easy if you ask me. A little tip here, if you need some hearts,
magic pots, etc., just have Ganon take down a pillar. His first form is very 
slow. Just Z-Target his tail and side jump on his left side. If you try his 
right side, you're asking for some hurt since his right side attack his very 
hard to avoid. The left side attack is easily avoided and the recoil time can
be used to jump attack him your sword. Repeat until he goes into his second 
form. In the down time between his forms, grab the Master Sword. You can't
use what you did before since Ganon is now faster. You can do two things at
this point. You can Z-Target his face and fire a light arrow. Or, you can 
roll under his legs (yes, it is possible) and slice his tail from there.
After you beat Ganon beatly enough, Zelda will hold him down and you must 
equip the Master Sword as this point. Use the Sword to slice him and enjoy
the rest of the game.

Due to lack of space a txt file can hold, I must end it short here. But do
not worry! Just proceed to part 3! (If available).
