The hookshot is an important item that appears many times throughout the Legend of Zelda games. It will shoot out and stick to a location of your choosing, which is usually wood, or some sort of target. It then pulls you up to it, or if it is light enough, pulls it towards you. In Ocarina of Time, you obtain it by winning a race against the ghost of Dampe the grave-keeper as Adult Link. An upgrade called the Longshot is obtained further on in the game, and is needed to complete the Water Temple.
