The rest of the content on this page is displayed depending on the controller setting chosen at the top of this page

Use A button and Left cUp cRight cDown c to play notes.

Holding R button makes the note sharp, and holding Z button makes the note flat. Up control gradually raises the note to its next higher note, and Down control dips it to the next lower one. Left control or Right control gives the note a vibrating effect.

Frog Song[edit]

You will have to play all your white non-warp songs to the frogs in Zoras River near the logs in order to make them grow and give you a heart piece.

Song List[edit]

Zelda's Lullaby[edit]

Use any time you see the Triforce, the Royal Family Crest, or when you need to establish yourself as a messenger of the Royal Family. For example, when this song is played while standing on the Triforce-shaped crest in the Kakariko Graveyard, the Royal Tomb will open, allowing entry. Playing the tune in front of Darunia's room in Goron City will open the door into his room. Playing this song on the crest at the end of the Zora's River will reveal the entrance to Zora's Domain behind the waterfall. If you break a sign and play this song, the sign will be restored. Playing this song near Gossip Stones (one-eyed statues) causes rejuvenating fairies to appear.

Epona's Song[edit]

Use in Hyrule Field to call Epona to your side (does not work as Young Link). Also, playing the song near a cow will earn you a bottle full of free milk (assuming you have an empty bottle).

Saria's Song[edit]

Use anywhere to talk to Saria. Saria will give you a hint as to where you should proceed next. For example, after obtaining the Goron Ruby from the Gorons, the only way of knowing to visit the Zoras for the Zora's Sapphire is to talk to Saria. Also used to cheer up the Goron Elder Darunia before entering the Dodongo's Cavern.

Sun's Song[edit]

Any time you can see the sky (ie., not in a dungeon), play this song to switch between day and night. After playing this song, the game will proceed from either 12:00 noon or 12:00 midnight. This song also freezes ReDeads, but only temporarily. This song can also summon a fairy if Navi turns green.
