Unlike most Zelda games, in Four Swords you can only carry one secondary item at a time. Picking up another forces you to drop the second.

Name description
Four Sword A basic sword. This is your primary weapon and cannot be replaced.
Hylian Shield Hold A button to put the shield in front. Deflects most attacks.
Bombs Press A button to light, press again to throw; press once more to detonate early. Unlike in other games, the bomb comes with unlimited supply.
Bow Press A button to shoot an arrow in order to hit enemies or certain switches far away.
Boomerang Pretty basic. Stuns enemies, and always returns to you.
Magnetic Gloves Use on magnetic blocks or other players. Stopping and using them again reverses the polarity.
Gnat Hat Shrinks you to tiny size. Use it again to return to normal.
Roc's Cape Press A button to jump. Press A button at the height of the jump to make another jump and glide.
Pegasus Boots Hold A button to initiate a dash attack. Can be used to bump into walls or enemies, or climb slippery slopes.
