• Inside Lord Jabu-Jabu as an adult

    Impossible you say? Think again! Go to where Lord Jabu-Jabu was as an adult and go to the left hand (master quest=right hand) side of the piece of ice where he was and run along the edge. After a few attempts you will be able to get inside Lord Jabu-Jabu as an adult and you can even active door switches and walk through the whole dungeon. Unfortunately, since the temple was cleared before, you cannot re-defeat the boss or mini-boss.

  • Lens of truth uses no magic

    This is the same glitch as in the N64 version, you need to play the song of storms, then immediately equip the lens of truth. The lens of truth won't use any magic if this is done fast enough.

Easter Eggs

  • Mario level in Hyrule Castle Garden

    When you go to visit Zelda at the beginning of the game, look in the window to your right when you walk in. In the original version, there used to be some paintings of Mario, Luigi, etc. However, in the 3DS version, there's something different. There's a mural of a Mario level, complete with blocks and pipes.

  • Sinking Lure

    If you want to easily catch really big fish in the fishing pond without having to spend countless hours, then make sure you have caught the "lunker" fish as an adult and have obtained the gold scale. Now go to the fishing pond and you will find a new lure in one of three places: 1.) in the feeder creek, 2.) in the grass around the perimeter of the area, or 3.) on the log jutting out of the pond. Once you find this lure, try fishing with it. It is irresistible to fish, so catching a 20 pounder will be no problem. However, if you set any records by using this lure, the fish you have caught will be noted as illegal on the aquarium and at the record board in Link's house.
