I'm surprised the other topic wasn't spammed to 500 sooner... <copy-paste>

The Uber Challenge has returned (although it never left) and it's better than ever! This time around, I've got a guide, a video, AND a nifty table of contents so people don't say, "you should write a guide for this."

Welcome to the Uber Challenge! This is a very difficult test of skill for Ocarina of Time players. It's similar to the 3 Heart Challenge, but much tougher. If you think you're a master of this game, put your money where your mouth is and take the Challenge.

====Uber Challenge Restrictions====

Following are the conditions of the Uber Challenge. Basically, you beat the game while following all these. Simple, right? Heh...

-3 hearts, no Heart Pieces whatsoever
-Buy Giant’s Knife and break it ASAP, and use that at all times (except in the Graveyard and while fighting Ganon)
-All Medallions
-1 Bottle
-No deaths (death counter at file select must say 000)
-No Iron Boots
-No capacity upgrades
-No Great Fairy gifts except Magic Meter and Din's Fire
-No Gold Skulltula family gifts from 20 or more Gold Skulltulas

-No Zora Tunic
-No Gerudo’s Card
-No Maps or Compasses
-No Biggoron’s Sword
-Cannot use Action Replay, Gameshark, etc.

Shield Restrictions

You must burn your Deku Shield ASAP. You may not equip another one. You may not obtain a Hylian Shield as a child, but you may obtain a Hylian Shield as an adult. You may only use a Hylian Shield in the following places:

-Central room of Water Temple

Aside from that, while you have a shield equipped, use it as little as possible and destroy it as soon as possible. After completing the Spirit Temple, equip a Hylian Shield and let a Like Like eat it so you can continue without a shield. The optimal locations to destroy your shield are included in the route.

I have written a guide for the Uber Challenge. It is located here:


At the request of many who have taken the Uber Challenge, I have made a video of it. Yes, the entire Uber Challenge. You can read about it and download it here:



The Uber Challenge would not be possible without the help of others. I'd like to thank the following people/sites:

If you have a FAQ for it, why do you keep posting it on the board? Why not just update the FAQ with any new stuff?

I beleive this topic is for people to ask questions and get a response easier and quicker.

I've always thought this challenge was quite awesome, and if I had an N64 right now I might try it. The only way I can access OOT at the moment is the "forbidden way" >.> And I'm sure it's just not the same with some of the tricks. Serious kudos to anyone that does all this stuff, I don't think I'd even have the time or patience to accomplish it all even if I did have an N64 O.O

Hint: "Blue Fire", OOT
Think hard about it.
