These are items that are equipped to the C-Buttons (note that in non-N64 versions of the game, the C-Button icons, 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.
|Deku Sticks||Deku Nuts||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.
||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.
||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.
|Ocarina of Time||Fairy Slingshot||Bomb Bag|
|Link can find this ocarina this 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.
||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.
||Carries Bombs: explosives that will detonate a few seconds after you take one out, or immediately if Link throws them at an enemy. They can be used to blow open new pathways in cracked walls. The Bomb Bag can hold up to 20 bombs when Link first obtains it.
|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.
||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.
||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.
|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.
||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.
||This is basically just the Hookshot with a longer-extending chain. It will replace the Hookshot when you obtain it in the Water Temple.
|Fire Arrows||Ice Arrows||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.
||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.
||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.
|Din's Fire||Farore's Wind||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.
|Megaton Hammer||Lens of Truth||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.
||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.
||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.
