These are items that are equipped to the Left c/Right c/Down c (in the non-N64 versions the Left c/Right c/Down c icons, depicted on-screen as large yellow circles, remain) and can be used with a quick press of the button. They are mostly made up of items obtained from dungeons.

OoT Items Deku Stick.pngDeku Sticks OoT Items Deku Nut.png Deku Nuts OoT Items Fairy Ocarina.png Fairy Ocarina
These sticks can be used as torches if they touch fire, and can also be used as weapons. They possess roughly twice the power of the Kokiri Sword, and are thus very valuable for Link as a child, but they will break after a single attack. Link can normally stock up to ten of these at once.
  • Location: Various
  • Child: Yes
  • Adult: No
  • Optional: No
When thrown onto the ground, Deku Nuts will create a luminous flash that will stun nearby enemies. Link will be able to hold up to 20 of these at a time when he first obtains them.
  • Location: Various
  • Child: Yes
  • Adult: Yes
  • Optional: Yes
When Link first leaves the Kokiri Forest, Saria will give him this Ocarina. It can be used to play various songs needed throughout the game.

  • Optional: No
OoT Items Ocarina of Time.png Ocarina of Time OoT Items Fairy Slingshot.png Fairy Slingshot OoT Items Bomb.png Bomb Bag
Link can find this ocarina after obtaining all three Spiritual Stones and returning to Hyrule Castle Town. It can effectively play the Song of Time which the old ocarina cannot. Zelda's Ocarina will replace the Fairy Ocarina.
  • Location: Hyrule Field
  • Child: Yes
  • Adult: Yes
  • Optional: No
This slingshot can be used to attack enemies from a distance, but it generally won't be effective against strong enemies. Deku Seeds are used as ammunition for this weapon; Link can hold up to 30 of these seeds when he first finds the Slingshot.
  • Location: Deku Tree
  • Child: Yes
  • Adult: No

OoT Items Boomerang.png Boomerang OoT Items Magic Beans.png Magic Beans OoT Items Bombchu.png Bombchu
This is the second projectile item you get as a child, and it can help you retrieve far away items (like Skulltula Tokens). It is only usable as a child, but it is a very versatile weapon, and has no limit to its use. It will only damage certain enemies, but most will at least be stunned by it.
  • Location: Jabu Jabu's Belly
  • Child: Yes
  • Adult: No
  • Optional: No
You can purchase these from the chubby fellow in front of the Zora River gate as a child. When you plant these into dirt patches as a child, a sprout will appear. As an adult, you can ride the plants that now sit there to reach new heights. The rides of these plants will often lead to rewards like Pieces of Heart or a treasure trove of Rupees. The sprout will only grow temporarily if the Song of Storms is played, providing only an immediate release of fairies.
  • Location: Zora River
  • Child: Yes
  • Adult: No
  • Optional: Yes
This is a moving bomb that resembles a mouse. Once set down, it goes straight in the direction it is facing, even up walls. After a period of time, or if it runs into something, it will explode just like a bomb. These can be purchased at night in the Castle Town Alley or from the flying merchant in the Haunted Wasteland.
  • Location: Various
  • Child: Yes
  • Adult: Yes
  • Optional: No
OoT Items Fairy Bow.png Fairy Bow OoT Items Hookshot.png Hookshot OoT Items Longshot.png Longshot
This is, well, a bow that shoots arrows. It's one of the most useful long-ranged weapons Link will find, and is the only weapon that can be used from the back of Epona. When Link obtains this, he can hold up to 30 arrows at once. This weapon's projectiles can upgraded with Fire Arrows, Ice Arrows, and Light Arrows. Arrows are more effective than Deku Seeds, and can pierce Skulltula armor.
  • Location: Forest Temple
  • Child: No
  • Adult: Yes
  • Optional: No
This weapon allows you to latch onto certain objects and pull yourself towards it, or pull it towards you. When used on enemies, most will be stunned by it, and some weaker foes will be damaged by it, but it doesn't have any effect on some strong monsters. This item is later replaced with the Longshot when it is found in the Water Temple.
  • Location: Dampe's Grave
  • Child: No
  • Adult: Yes
  • Optional: No
This is basically just the Hookshot with a longer-extending chain. It will replace the Hookshot when you obtain it in the Water Temple.
  • Location: Water Temple
  • Child: No
  • Adult: Yes
  • Optional: No
OoT Items Fire Arrows.png Fire Arrows OoT Items Ice Arrows.png Ice Arrows OoT Items Light Arrows.png Light Arrows
This spell allows Link to enchant the arrows he shoots with fire, although each shot costs a little bit of magic power. These arrows not only deal more damage, but can be used to light torches or set various things ablaze. The spell can be obtained in Lake Hylia by standing above the entrance to the Water Temple, aiming the Fairy Bow between two nearby pillars, and shooting an arrow as the sun rises between them. This will only work after the Water Temple has been completed and Lake Hylia has been re-filled with water. These arrows make the Shadow Barrier in Ganon's Castle much easier to complete.
  • Location: Lake Hylia
  • Optional: Yes
This spell, much like Fire Arrows, allows Link to empower his arrows with ice, although each shot will cost a little magic power. While these projectiles deal more damage than usual, they can also freeze their target. This spell can be obtained by clearing the Gerudo Training sidequest in Gerudo Fortress.
  • Location: Gerudo Fortress
  • Optional: Yes
When Light Arrows are used, they can make the bow one of the most powerful weapons in the game. However, each shot costs a rather large chunk of magic power. They are necessary for victory against Ganon. If you defeat any enemy with this arrow it will drop a Purple Rupee.
  • Location: Temple of Time
  • Optional: No
OoT Items Din's Fire.png Din's Fire OoT Items Farore's Wind.png Farore's Wind OoT Items Nayru's Love.png Nayru's Love
A spell received from a Great Fairy, Din's Fire consumes magic when used. It creates a wall of fire around you that spreads out and can severely damage, if not kill, most enemies. It can also be used to light torches, and is necessary to open up the door to the Shadow Temple. You may receive this from a Great Fairy. Farore's Wind allows you to create a warp point, which consumes magic, and warp back to that one point any time you wish. The warp point disappears after you warp back to it. This can only be used in dungeons, and only has an effect within each individual dungeon. However, it can be used to warp between dungeons if cast in one and used in another. This spell slowly drains magic after its activation, and can be cancelled at any time. It will protect you from receiving damage as long as its active, but you will still flinch from any attacks received. You can receive this from a Great Fairy.
OoT Items Megaton Hammer.png Megaton Hammer OoT Items Lens of Truth.png Lens of Truth OoT Items Zelda's Letter.png Quest-Related Trade Items
Not only can this weapon be used to massacre foes, but it will also cause a shock wave when it slams on the ground that will cause most nearby enemies to be damaged and/or stunned. It can be used to destroy rocks, push down rusty switches, and solve various puzzles. While wielding it, Link cannot use a shield.
  • Location: Fire Temple
  • Child: No
  • Adult: Yes
  • Optional: No
This nifty item allows you to see normally invisible enemies and even peer through fake walls and traps! The downside to this is that it constantly drains your magic power while it's active. The Shadow Temple is impossible without it because it is the only way to see the boss.
  • Location: Beneath the Well
  • Child: Yes
  • Adult: Yes
  • Optional: No
Link can obtain many various items on his quest that can be traded in order to progress through the story. Some are optional, but others are crucial towards specific moments in the game.
  • Location: Various places in Hyrule
  • Child: Yes
  • Adult: Yes
  • Optional: Some are optional, some are not
OoT Items Empty Bottle.png Empty Bottles
In all, there are four obtainable bottles within the game. Bottles cannot be purchased.
  • Location: Lake Hylia, Karariko Village, Hyrule Field, Lon Lon Ranch
  • Child: Yes
  • Adult: Yes
  • Optional: Only one needed in-game
What a bottle can do

Bottles can be used to store the following:

  • Blue flames
  • Bugs (although labeled and displayed as having caught a single bug, when released multiple bugs appear)
  • Fairies
  • Fish
  • Milk
  • Poes
  • Potions
  • Water
Uses
  • Health: Red Potions, milk, and fairies will replenish your health. Fairies are one-time-use items, but will increase your health to its maximum. Red Potions and milk will only restore your health a limited amount, but can be used more than once. Green Potions will replenish all of your magic power, and Blue Potions will replenish both a limited amount of health and all of your magic power.
  • Gold Skulltulas and Rupees:
    • Bugs can be used on soft patches of soil. When released, the bugs will (after a few seconds) burrow into the soft patch and eject a Gold Skulltula. They can also be sold for 50 rupees at Kakariko village (as an adult).
    • Fish are also good for making money.
    • Poes are also fairly valuable to people who buy "strange" things. Using one will result in several random effects, including losing/gaining health or losing/gaining magic power. Big Poes are VERY valuable, but are best delivered to the Poe Keeper to get an additional bottle.
  • Story/game progression:
    • A fish is required to open Jabu Jabu's mouth when looking for the Zora Sapphire (Blue Spiritual Stone). Fish are also fairly valuable to some people who buy "strange" things, so selling one will earn you a fair amount of rupees.
    • Blue flames are used to melt the red ice that appears in the ice cavern and unfreeze King Zora. You can acquire blue flames within the ice cavern by using a bottle on the blue flame in the room to the far north of the entrance.
  • Combat: with a simple swipe, a bottle can snag a item. However, it also has an unorthodox ability to deflect magical projectiles, like a sword, if swung at them.
How to find the bottles
  1. Go to Lake Hylia when Link is a child. Near the underwater entrance to Zora's Domain, there is a bottle on the lake bottom with a letter inside. Take this bottle to King Zora in Zora's Domain to empty it out and use it for other things. This is the only bottle you are required to obtain in the course of the game.
  2. Talk to Talon when Link is a child to play the Super Cucco minigame. If you win, Talon will give you a bottle with milk. If you seem to be having problems winning, try tossing a few Cuccos in the area between the table and the stairs. The cuccos will stay there, for the most part, so it will be easier to pick out the Super Cuccos.
  3. Return all the stray Cuccos in Kakariko Village to their holding pen in order to obtain an empty bottle from Anju (the red-haired girl) near the Cucco pen.
  4. When Link is an adult, there are ten Big Poes scattered in various places around Hyrule Field. To spawn one, you must be riding your horse near the locations listed below. Defeat the Big Poe with the bow while on the horse. The Big Poe will disappear if it hits a wall or if you are too far from it so you need to sustain a good amount of speed. Your horse will sustain the speed and direction at the moment you aim with your bow. The Big Poe will maneuver around Hyrule Field so be prepared to make swift turns. If you defeat and capture all ten and give them to the Poe Keeper at the entrance to Hyrule Castle, he'll give you another empty bottle. Here are the locations of the Big Poes:
    1. Near a tree by the entrance to Lon Lon Ranch
    2. Near a grey boulder south of the entrance to the Kokiri Forest
    3. Near the sign for Kakariko Village
    4. Along the wall near Lon Lon Ranch
    5. Near the sign for Lon Lon Ranch
    6. Along the Path that leads to Gerudo Valley
    7. North of the entrance to Gerudo Valley next to a tree
    8. In the southeast corner of Hyrule Field near a tree
    9. In the southeast corner of Hyrule Field near a rock by the brown trees.
    10. In the northwest corner of Hyrule Field by the stream
