The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
C-Button Items

These are items that can be equipped onto your C buttons for various uses and functions. (Expendable items that can be found in multiple places are not included on this list, and the Masks and Trading Game items were given their own pages.)


Inside the Deku Tree, climb up the vines (or the ladder) in the first room, and enter a door on the ledge. The room beyond the door has a platform in the middle that falls when you jump on it. Jump to the other ledge before it falls and open the chest to get the Fairy Slingshot. You will need Deku Seeds to use it.

You will receive the Fairy Ocarina automatically from Saria the first time you leave the Kokiri Forest, after beating the Deku Tree dungeon.


After you have collected all three Spiritual Stones, head towards Hyrule Castle and the sky will become cloudy and you'll notice the drawbridge is up even in the daytime. When you get close enough, a cutscene will occur showing Ganondorf chasing Princess Zelda and Impa on horseback out of the castle. On the way out, Zelda throws the Ocarina of Time into the castle's moat. When the cutscene is over, dive into the moat and retrieve it.


After you sneak past the guards to get to the back entrance of Hyrule Castle, you'll find Talon asleep on the ground and blocking the way. Go back to the beginning of the area and you'll find his daughter, Malon, waiting by the entrance, near the wall with the vines on it. She'll give you the Weird Egg.


Put the Weird Egg that you got from Malon on one of your C buttons and hold onto it until night passes and morning comes. It will hatch into a Chicken. Use the Chicken in front of the sleeping Talon to wake him up and get him out of your way.

After sneaking past the guards in the Hyrule Castle Courtyard, talk to Princess Zelda and play out the whole cutscene. You'll automatically get Zelda's Letter at the end. This is needed to pass the guard at Kakariko Village into Death Mountain.


Go the entrance of Hyrule Castle and just beyond the gate, turn right to a short path with a sign and a boulder at the end. Use a bomb to blow away the boulder, and enter the cave. Play Zelda's Lullaby at the fountain inside and the Great Fairy will give you Din's Fire, which can be used as an attack spell.


In Zora's Fountain, there is a small bit of land off to the right of Lord Jabu-Jabu. Place a bomb against the wall, near the big rock. While the rock won't be affected by the explosion, a huge hole will be blown in the wall behind it. Enter it to find a Great Fairy's Fountain. Play Zelda's Lullaby and you'll get Farore's Wind. This can be used to create warp points inside dungeons.


Along the wall leading into the Desert Colossus, you'll find a crack between two palm trees. Place a bomb and blow it open to reveal a Great Fairy's Fountain. Play Zelda's Lullaby for her and you'll get Nayru's Love, a spell that creates a protective force field around Link.


There's a fat kid eating beans at the entrance to Zora's River. He will sell you Magic Beans that can be planted in the soft square soil patches you find all over the Hyrule. These will bloom into plants in the Adult Link world that will allow you to reach areas you couldn't otherwise. The price of the beans goes up with each purchase and he will run out when you've planted all of them.


Inside Jabu-Jabu's Belly, there is a hallway with several branching paths and doors. Two of the doors are blocked by slimy tentacles, and a third one has a switch in front of it. While you're carrying Princess Ruto, step on the switch and the combined weight of her and Link will force it down and open the door. Beyond that door is a room full of those flying stingray enemies.

Kill all of the stingrays (use your slingshot) and a treasure chest will appear with the Boomerang inside.


Go to the Graveyard in Kakariko Village as Adult Link and you will discover that, sadly, Dampe has died sometime during the past 7 years. A new gravestone will be on the upper left row for him. Pull it open and drop down the hole. Beat Dampe's ghost in a race and he'll give you the Hookshot.


After you beat Dark Link in the Water Temple, you'll find a large treasure chest in a room just beyond him. That chest contains the Longshot, which is an upgraded Hookshot. It extends twice as far.

There's a room beyond the twisted hallway in the Forest Temple where you will fight three Stalfos Knights. Beat them all, and a large treasure chest with the Fairy Bow will appear. You will need arrows to use it.


Anytime after you've beaten the Water Temple, go to the island in the middle of Lake Hylia and stand on the wooden platform there. Aim your bow and arrow at the sun as it comes up in the morning and shoot into it. You'll get the Fire Arrow, which allows you to set your arrows on fire for the cost of some magic power.


You'll get the Ice Arrow for completing the optional Gerudo Training Ground dungeon. You'll need the Silver Gauntlets for this part. It also helps if you have the Lens of Truth...

After you have completed all the temples in Adult Link's world, Forest, Fire, Water, Shadow, and Spirit, return to the Temple of Time in Hyrule Market. A cutscene will occur in which you'll automatically be given the Light Arrow. However, I will not reveal the nature of the cutscene here because it is too big of a spoiler.


On the top floor of the Fire Temple is a room with a large treasure chest that's surrounded by a wall of flames. Stepping on a switch douses the flame, but only for a very short period of time. You'll have to hit the switch and quickly run up a narrow wall to reach the chest before the time limit expires. Inside that chest is the Megaton Hammer, which can be used to break boulders, attack enemies, and hit rusty switches, amongst other uses...


Go back to Kid Link's world after learning the Song of Storms, and play it inside the Windmill Hut. This will drain the well. Enter the Bottom of the Well mini-dungeon and find the Triforce emblem on the floor at the back of the large central room. Play Zelda's Lullaby and this will stop the water from flowing out of the fountain. Near the entrance of the well, you can crawl through a hole where the water had drained. At the end is the mini-boss, Dead Hand. Beat him to earn the Lens of Truth, which will allow you to see hidden objects and fake walls.


Go to Kakariko Village and round up all the Cuccoos (chickens) you find running around the town. Take them to the ranch near the red-haired woman and throw them into it. When you've got them all in there, talk to the woman and you'll receive Empty Bottle #1.


After you wake Talon up outside of Hyrule Castle, go to Lon Lon Ranch and talk to him in his house. Pay him 10 rupees to play his Cuccoo mini-game. Find the three "Super Cuccoos" in the time limit and you win Empty Bottle #2. Technically, his bottle comes with Lon Lon Milk, but you keep the empty bottle after you've used it up.


In Lake Hylia, near where the warp is to Zora's Domain, you'll find Empty Bottle #3 underwater, rested at the bottom of the lake. Dive down to get it. Actually, it has a note from Princess Ruto inside of it, but you'll get to keep the empty bottle once you give that to King Zora.


When running around Hyrule Field in Adult Link's world, you'll occasionally cause a Big Poe (ghost) to rise out of the ground and start floating around. What you need to do is flush these ghosts out of hiding while riding on Epona and then attack them with your bow and arrow. Two arrows will destroy a Big Poe and allow you to collect it in a bottle. There are 10 Big Poes altogether scattered around Hyrule Field. Keep catching them in bottles and taking them to the man who is in the building just inside the Hyrule Castle Market entrance. When you've sold all 10, he'll give you Empty Bottle #4.

When you become Adult Link, go to Kakariko Village and talk to the same red-haired woman near the chicken ranch who gave you the bottle when you were Kid Link. She'll give you a Pocket Egg. Hold onto it for three days and it will hatch.


After holding onto the Pocket Egg for three days, it will hatch into a Pocket Cucco. Use it to wake up Talon, who is sleeping inside one of the houses in Kakariko Village, then return it to the red-haired woman to start the trading game.
