[edit] Secrets

  • Avoiding Enemies
    • If you want to avoid a confrontation, kill all the enemies but one in a screen. When you re-enter the screen, there will only be that one enemy remaining.
  • Easy kills
    • If you want to avoid the stronger enemies in the screen, use this method. Kill all the weaker enemies and leave the screen. When you re-enter, all the strong enemies will be replaced by weaker ones.
  • Easy way to get Rupees and Hearts
    • Go the the graveyard and touch every grave on one screen. Lots of ghosts will come out, this is what you want. Kill the first ghost that was on the screen and the others will disappear, leaving goodies behind.
  • Second Quest Quick Start
    • Enter your name as ZELDA at the beginning of the game and you will start the second quest immediately. The second quest is quite a but different than the first, items, dungeons and bosses will be moved around.
  • Short-cut to Final Dungeon
    • Once you have collected all the pieces of the Triforce, stand outside Dungeon 8 and blow your whistle. You will be transported to the outside of the Final Dungeon.
  • Unlook Door in Level 1
    • Upon entering the level one dungeon, you will see a locked door. Simply leave the dungeon and re-enter and the door will be unlocked.
