What's New

Version 1.05 (11/29/13): Added a Maiamai location I somehow forgot to list in the FAQ (Lost Woods area, above the Death Mountain cave entrance). Also, I removed the Lamp from the list of upgradable items.

Version 1.0 (11/26/13): The first version, with all 100 missing Maiamais included.

Maiamai Locations

On the northwest shore of Lake Hylia, there is a cave that you must use a Bomb to open. Inside you will meet Mother Maiamai, who asks you to find all 100 of her babies hidden throughout Hyrule and Lorule (50 in each world). She even includes a map that divides the overworlds by region, showing how many babies are remaining in a given area.

For every 10 Maiamais you return to the mother, you will receive an upgrade to one of the items that you actually own (the ones you purchase from Ravio), so I recommend finding as many as you can! When you upgrade an item, it will become a "Nice" item (Nice Hammer, Nice Bow, and so on). The items that qualify for upgrading are the following:

  • Bombs
  • Boomerang
  • Bow
  • Fire Rod
  • Hammer
  • Hookshot
  • Ice Rod
  • Sand Rod
  • Tornado Rod

The Maiamais are very well hidden, so use this list to find them all! When you are near a missing Maiamai, you will hear a crying sound which gets louder when you get closer. The list is broken down by region as shown on the in-game map.

If you manage to return all 100 Maiamais to their mother, you will be granted the Great Spin sword attack. This greatly increases your spin attack's range and power, which is extremely helpful in tight situations and essential for the Treacherous Tower!

Death Mountain

    1. From the "Death Mountain" weather vane, progress through the boulder cave. At the top, take the second exit out of the cave to the ledge with the chest on it. Merge and climb to the right, then pop out to knock the baby free.
    2. From the "Death Mountain" weather vane, go down the ladder and head across the southeast bridge. When you come to a single small rock, pick it up with the Power Glove to uncover this baby.

    4. On the east side of the mountain (use the Hookshot to get across), enter the cave leading to Rosso's Ore Mine. At the first solid platform, take the south branch along the platforms.

    5. On the eastern side of the mountain (using the Hookshot), enter the cave leading to Rosso's Ore Mine. Make your way all the way to the bottom, going east at the first solid platform.
