Most of these cheats should work with both versions of the game, but this is not guaranteed. This guide is written with the DX version in mind.

Many of these cheats have not been tested, and none have been tested outside of emulation, so they may not work as expected or may even have undesirable side-effects.

Note: for some cheat devices you may need to change the first digit from 0 to 9 or vice versa.

Game Genie Codes[edit]

Code Effect Note
12E-79E-EFA You will always shoot arrows (if you have them or not) without deleting your supply
DEF-9BB-7OC Messed-Up Graphics (1 of 3)
DEF-8BC-7OC Messed-Up Graphics (2 of 3)
DEF-7BD-7OC Messed-Up Graphics (3 of 3) This code messes up the graphics on a screen inside a cave, house, etc. When you walk between screens it jams up. Turn code off to move and you'll have a new spot. Some are on top of walls in caves, but be careful there are pits one can never get out of.
346-708-FEC No people or monsters Except in rooms you start in (i.e. like when you load a game, or walk into a house), this does work in the Labyrinths. There is a side effect to this code, and it's pretty weird. When you walk into a solid object like a fence or a house, the game makes this zapping noise and you walk strangely. If you walk going right into a fence, instead of pushing the fence, you walk up, through walls and anything else in the way (except people). The code makes it look like maybe and animal village are abandoned. You can also use the side effect to skip fighting the nightmare and just get the instrument.
BA8-75C Screen Warp Replicator This code enables you to take something from one room (like people or monsters) and put them in a nearby one. You can take items for a long distance, but you end up getting everybody/thing in every other room you cross. This makes the game run really slowly, and the items get distorted across a long distance. You can take secret seashells and move them around to get enough for your sword upgrade. You cannot enter a house or a cave and keep your stuff. You can shut the owl up, move him into adjacent room, then kill him with your sword. Unfortunately, he returns to blab at you and tell you the stuff you already know.
EA1-928 Walk-Through Walls This is a perfect walk through walls code. You can walk through anything (except people). The only thing is, you need the Roc's Feather to end the effects. (The fishing mouse in Mabe village works too if you play the fishing game.) The screen turns white immediately after you turn the code on. Use the save function, and return to game to remedy this. If you use the Roc's Feather while codes are on, the screen will change funky colors.
9B3-34B-218 Automatic Fire Rod Effects With this code you get a flame wand that auto fires about every eight seconds. It does not interfere with other weapons, and will not fire if you are doing the power sword slash.
00D-EAD Messed-Up People And Animals This code just messes up the graphics of the people, and animals, and likely the monsters too.
DEA-D08 Monsters Act Like Pac-Man Monsters and animals can drift offscreen, especially the righthand side. For example: the chickens in Mabe village. Swat one with a sword and get him to run to the right. He will go through almost anything, and offscreen on the right. Walk to the right (without leaving the screen) and he will wrap around the other side.
A28-93B Fly Up The Screen If you are not walking when this code is on you will automatically fly up to the top of the screen (will work on every single frame).
525-21B Sled-Jump Use your Feather to jump or jump off a cliff, you will land on your stomach and keep on skidding as if you were riding on a sled.
345-DCB-356 Change Soundtrack
626 738 E65 Enemies And Friends Disappear (Switchable) Caution: you can be trapped in Bottle Grotto dungeon. Don't use this code to get into a dungeon early.
02C-56B-E6E Get The Lv. 2 Sword And Mirror Shield At Start Of The Game (1 of 2)
02C-74A-E6E Get The Lv. 2 Sword And Mirror Shield At Start Of The Game (2 of 2) You must use this on a new game or there will be no effect. With this code, Tarin will give you the Mirror Shield, and the Master Sword will be waiting on the beach. (No more annoying shells.) However, if you use the code to gain the Mirror Shield, the ghost will never haunt you. If you want to be haunted later, turn off the code and get the Fighter's Shield. The Master Sword, however, doesn't interfere with the Ghost, so turn the code on before you touch the sword.
222-229 You Should Have The Sword And The Feather If you swipe your sword, You will have the power to walk through walls. To stop walking through walls, jump up once. You can walk through walls on to the next screen. On the overworld map, you'll go to the next screen, but in dungeons, buildings, caves and any thing like that, you'll go to an "almost random place." Almost random in that you can make a map and it will always be the same.


  • Sometimes, the game will lock up. Just reset, it won't hurt anything.
  • Also, watch out for screens with holes on the sides (i.e., the telephone booth).
  • Like above, if you don't have flippers, don't go to a spot with water on the edge.
  • Never take a trading item except the Magnifying Glass if you find it in a cave. Later, when you go to get your Magnifying Glass, it won't be there.

Map-Exploration Omega Code[edit]

This gets its own section due to its immense size. All must be used together. All are by Xkeeper from Zelda Coalition.

This will change all objects on the outer edge of the current screen to walkable tiles, usually dirt or grass. This allows you to go anywhere. It's dangerous though - be sure to turn it off when entering the room you want to exit, since the door tiles will likely be gone.

Code Effect Note

If activated during gameplay, only the last part of the ending will play (the credits cutscene) and the music of the current area will be over top of the intended music. This is also the easiest way to see the special Marin ending.
