However, longer character interactions leading to items, and trading sequences are not mentioned here, but on the Side-quests page. Also, dungeon info and items are not discussed here, but on the Walkthrough pages.

Merman: "I hear there's a fellow on Windfall Island who's collecting Skull Necklaces. You know who it is, fry? I don't. Sorry. What I CAN tell you is that those piggish monsters you see here in the Forsaken Fortress seem to carry those Skull Necklaces around all the time. Not that I think it's easy work stealing anything from the likes of those guys."

With something like that, you could even freeze that nasty monster in the Forsaken Fortress... for awhile anyway. But then, what would you do with a frozen monster, you say? Good question, fry. Why, I'd say that you'd give that thing a whack and watch it shatter into teeny-tiny pieces!"

It just goes to show that you can't judge a person on appearance alone, fry! Of course, the thing about this Tingle guy is that when it comes to pay his deciphering fee, you'd better be ready to fork over some serious dough.

But actually, fry, I must have misheard or something... 'Cause this one guy told me that what was actually buried beneath that weird rock was a chart to this shard of something called Triforce. Whoever heard of that? That's crazy! There's a big difference between "Triumph Forks" and "Triforce"! I mean, I think someone intentionally buried something misleading there."

Boating Course (G6)[edit]

Merman: "Lemme ask you something, fry... Have you been using [R] to make your boat jump? Well? Have you? ...Of course, going out to sea just to jump around would be real dumb, if you ask me. Anyway, what you can do is tilt <-O-> to move your tiller just as you land... That's how you make a sharp turn. If you didn't know that, what don't you try it out?"

General info[edit]

Reefs[edit]

There are six reef type islands consisting of a square shaped enclosed lagoon with a number of little islands, or "eyes", inside corresponding to the number in the island's name.

The objective at each one of these reefs is to destroy the enemies in the lagoon: gunboats and cannons that hang from the walls. This makes a chest appear on top of one of the islands. When the chest appears, get out of the boat near the entrance of the lagoon, climb up the ramp to the top of the reef, and follow it around to a high point close to the island with the chest. Adjust the wind direction if needed, then use the Deku Leaf to glide to the island and open the chest.

The chest will always contain a Treasure Chart, but for the Cyclops Reef the chart is for the same location so pick up the treasure while your there. The treasure chart for the other reefs leads to the inside of the lagoon so, to avoid fighting the enemies twice, it's a good idea to get the chart for the reef first when possible. So, for example, before doing Three-Eye Reef (D1), first get Treasure Chart #38 (at the auction), then open the treasure for it while you're at the reef getting Treasure Chart #32.
