Unlimited money

Reach the Color Dungeon (accessible only with Game Boy Color), go up to the next room and then right into the next room. Go to the bottom wall and keep stabbing it with your sword. You will hear a hollow clank. Place a bomb there and you will be able to go into the room below. It is filled with five rupee pieces. To repeat this, just leave the dungeon and re-enter.

Get named a thief

Go to the Camera Shop. Read the book that has the character’s name on it before you look at photos. Go to the Shop at Mabe Village and steal an item. Return to the shop to get killed. Once the game is started again, return to the Camera Shop. The character’s name will have been replaced by “THIEF”. Steal an item from the shop in Mabe Village. Go back in the store and get killed. When the you start the game over, go to Marin. Instead of your name, she call you “THIEF”.Go to the Camera Shop and get your album. Then, go to the Mabe Village Shop and steal something. Talk to Marin and she will now call you “THIEF”. Next, go back to the Camera Shop and look at the album. It is now called “The Travels Of THIEF”. Look at picture No. 7 and it will be one of Link stealing something from a shop.

Invincible Rooster

You need the Boomerang, and the Rooster you get after Level 5. Throw your boomerang. Now pick up the Rooster. The boomerang will float underneath you, and kill anything you pass over while flying!

Save money when buying things

Go to the shop and buy anything (for example bow & arrows) and then when your money goes down save the game by pressing Start + Select + A + B at the same time. Then quit, then load your save back up and you will still have the same amount of money you started with & you have the item you wanted.


Configure the bombs and arrows as the two button items, then press A + B to shoot.

Talking Slimes

Go to the witch’s hut (where you get the magic powder). Walk one screen to the left, then one up. Sprinkle some magic powder on the slime there (but do not attack it or you will be electrified). It will transform into a new creature. It will still hurt you, but if you get close enough to talk to it, it will say things like “Hey Mon!”, “You know me, I like short names the best…”, and “It can display millions of polygons!”.

Bonus seashells

Find exactly five secret seashells, then go to the Seashell Mansion. Enter, then walk right until finding the water flowing up a big pipe. Another bonus shell can be found by doing this with exactly ten seashells. Note: Return to the Seashell Mansion with twenty seashells to obtain a level two power sword. This sword can shoot when your character’s life is full.When you get twenty secret seashells, do not go to the Seashell Mansion. Instead, look for five more seashells so you will eventually have twenty five secret seashells. Once you have that number of seashells, go to the Seashell Mansion. Instead of a level two sword, you will get a powerful dagger. If you first go to the Seashell Mansion to get the level 2 sword and then look for the extra seashells, you will only find rupees in their place.

Alternate ending sequence

Complete the game using no continues. Marin will fly across the screen with wings during the ending sequence.When all hearts have been lost, hold Start + Select + A + B to save the game. You will not be counted as dead, and if you do not die at all, you will see an ending. Note: On the player select screen, the three numbers under your name corresponds to how many times you died.

Steal Shop Items

If you don’t want to pay the outrageous pirces for items in the Mabe Village shop, you CAN steal items. To do this, simply walk up to the item and pick it up as if you were going to buy it. While holding the item, walk BEHIND the shopkeeper, and then quickly walk out the door while he is facing the other way. This may require more than one try, especially on the more expensive items (like the Shovel or Bow). If you succeed, however, there are drawbacks. First of all, everyone will call you THIEF instead of the name you used, and the next time you enter the shop, the shopkeeper will kill you.

Always Win at the Crane Game

Move the crane directly above the left conveyor belt using the B button. When the item that you want to pick up gets to the very top of the right conveyor belt (but not on the top conveyor belt), tap A. The crane will move down and grab the item.


Your character can steal from shop by taking an item, and standing above the store keeper. As he looks towards of the top of the screen, use the door to leave the shop. Note: Your character will be branded a thief and may never return to the same shop. However, the game can be saved and reloaded if your character is killed by a store keeper, which allows the store to be re-entered without penalty.You can steal items after getting your sword from the beach. Make the storekeeper look at the place where his goods are and walk left until you are above the door, Then, walk out. If this does not work the first time, try again. When you walk back into the store the storekeeper will kill you — save beforehand and continue to do it again.When you steal from the shop, get the storekeeper to look to the right, giving you more time to exit.After you get Malon to follow you so she can wake up the walrus, go to the store. Pick up an item and just walk out. If you go back in, the shop owner will kill you. After you steal, Malon will call you “Thief” for the rest of the game.Go into the village tool shop. Grab an item, then go above the man and follow the pattern: top, side, bottom and repeat until he looks at you very slowly. Then, when you are on the top, run out the door very fast. The easiest way to steal an item from the Mabe Village Shop is to pick up the item as if you were going to buy it. Walk behind the shopkeeper and wait until he turns around to look at you, then quickly run out of the door while he is facing the other way. This may require a few attempts. The drawback to doing this is that the shopkeeper will kill you the next time you enter the shop, and everyone in the game will call you “Thief”.

New color for clothes

In the Color Dungeon, go to the graveyard. Go to the area with the stone that link reads “Beat the last level and come back”. Push it down, then push the one to its left, down. Push the next one to the left, the following one up, the following one right, and the last one up. Walk down the steps. Go through the halls until you reach a fairy. Choose a new vest color. Blue gives you the Guardian Acorn power and the red gives you the Piece Of Power. This can be done several times. Note: You will not be able to go back to green clothing.Go to the Color Dungeon and defeat the Boss inside by shooting arrows or slashing him until his shell changes red. Choose Red or Blue cloak after you meet the fairy.

Mad Batter locations

There are three places where the Mad Batter is located. The first location is in the Mysterious Forest. Go to the fairy in the Mysterious Forest and move left one screen. Lift the rock to reveal a secret stairway. Descend and sprinkle magic powder on the well. The second location is two screens to the right of the ghost’s house. Blow up the bushes with explosive arrows. Jump the pit and enter, then move across the cave and swim through the water with your flippers. After leaving the water, move left and walk down the stairway. Again, sprinkle magic powder on the well. The final location is at Tal Tal Heights. Go to the Hen House and move left one screen. A lone bush will eventually appear after a couple of screens. Cut it to reveal another stairway. Go across the cave and get out. Keep moving left and up the mountain, then move left again. A lone rock should appear. Pick it up and walk down the stairways. Sprinkle magic powder again. Link should get 60 Arrows, 60 Bombs, and 40 Magic Powder.

Magic Powder without Mushroom

There is a way to get Magic Powder without having to get the Mushroom. Get 10 rupees, then go to the shop that has the lottery. When moving the crane, try to get the bag (it contains Magic Powder).

Extra life

Go left of the graveyard and go in the house. Once inside, you will find a lady. Talk to her and she will ask you if you want a potion (40 rupees at the most). Accept, and if you die it will refill your hearts.

Cheaper purchases

Getting into the Color Dungeon

Change the music

Select an empty file and enter ZELDA as your name. (case-sensitive)

Hookshot invulnerability

Anytime you have the Hookshot equipped, if an enemy comes toward you, or it launches a projectile at you, simply use the Hookshot and as it launches out, the enemy / projectile will go straight through you, and you will take no damage.

Cheaper Items

This only works on an item as expensive as the bow, or maybe the shovel if you’re quick. Begin paying for the item and save and quit, (a+b+select+start) and then load your game again. You should have more money left (as much as remained when you saved) and you don’t have to finish paying.

Getting the boomerang

Go to Toronbo Shores, the place where you got your sword, and look for a crack in the wall. Bomb the wall and enter the cave. If you do not have the magnifying glass, nothing will be there. If you do have it, a man will be there. He will trade a boomerang for whatever item is assigned to B. Give him your worst item (the shovel) to get the boomerang.

Easy money

In level three, the Boss will taunt you and say that you will never find him. To get unlimited rupies, get to the Boss, but do not ram the wall with the Pegasus Boots. Kill the blobs that fall on the screen for easy money.Go to the crane game and begin playing. Put the crane between the top left pad (what the items move on) and the one to the left of it. Make sure to center the middle of the crane in the crack between the pads. Wait for the 30 rupee piece to move to the bottom right pad, then quickly press A. If done correctly, it will pick the piece up every time. This will give you twice the rupees you used to play the game.

Free items from shop

Pick up the item you want and run around the man until he looks at a wall. Then run out of the shop. It will say “You got it for free, are you proud of yourself?”. When you go back in the shop the man will kill you. You get called “Theif” afterwards.

Kill Mutts or Cuccos

When you are standing next to a cat or chicken, sprinkle some Magic Powder on them. The chickens will start flashing and then disappear, while the cats will start flashing and then turn into a chicken. They then will also disappear. You can get them back by leaving the screen and re-entering.
