  2. How To Buy A Golden Bee

    Go to the cave with the Ice Rod, and go into the non-secret entrance, not the one leading to the Ice Rod. Dash into the statue at the end of the passage, and a Golden Bee will pop out. Catch it, and take it to the guy who refuses to sell you the Golden Bees. He will say that they are not as rare as he thought they were and will begin selling Golden Bees.

  3. Easy Money

    After you've gotten the Power gloves go to the desert area in the game. Once there find the man thats sitting next to his sign. Go a little bit south and to the left where you should find two large rocks. Lift up the rock below the top one and a secret area will be opened. Once inside you'll notice a thief and 10 different pots that each hold a blue rupee, break open each pot and take all the money. You'll be able to do this as much as you please because the blue rupees come back every time you leave and reenter the area. It should only take a few minutes to get the maximum amount of rupees.

  4. Free potion

    Once you've gotten the super bomb and already blew up the wall blocking the dark worlds fairy go inside and make sure you have at least one empty bottle with you. Go up to the Mysterious pond and it will ask you to throw something in. Scroll through your items until you come across an empty bottle, then throw it in the water. The Fairy will come out and ask you if you droped it. Answer yes and the fairy will say she likes such an honest person and will fill your bottle with green potion. You can do this as many times as you want.

  5. Get the red shield before entering the dark world or paying 500 rupees

    After you get the Zora flippers, find the big waterfall in the light world. It should be near the area where you got the flippers. Once you see the waterfall walk right into it and you'll be able to go inside of it. Once your inside you'll see a pond and it will ask you to throw something in. Choose to throw your small shield in and a fairy will ask if it is yours. Answer "YES" and she'll give you a red shield.

  6. Save the Fish!

    When you are in the light world, go to the dungeon where you get the Ice Rod. To the left, you will see a little fish flopping around. If you catch it with the right button, you can go up one screen and throw it into the water. It will thank you with 20 ruppees.

  7. Holding Nothing

    On any part of the Light World Death Mountain that is on top of the mountain (level with the Tower of Hera, or Mountain Tower) freeze one of the tekktites (those blue or red spidery jumping things) with the ice rod (the Ether Medallion will just kill it) and pick it up using the power glove. not jump off the edge of the mountain that leads to the ground level. The tekktie will suddenly disappear and when you land on the ground you will be holding thin air and you will walk at normal speed with nothing weighing you down. The only problem is, you can't use any items, including your sword, shield or pegasus boots, and you cant throw away the air that you're holding. The only way you can stop this is by entering a cave or by getting hurt. you can also pick up a green stone and do the same thing, but I can't guarantee it will work. Sometimes you may have to repeat the trick several times in order for the item you're holding to disappear. You can also do this in the Dark World Death Mountain where you enter the portal near Spectacle Rock. Pick up a flower, and jump off the cliff. In the Dark World it doesn't work that much, but if you try again it will work.

  8. Walking on Water

    Call up the Flute Duck and fly to point 7 on the map, which is the light world watergate. go up one screen to the place where the water portal is. now go up to the top right corner of the screen in the shallow water. call the flute duck again but this time before it comes aim a correctly timed pegasus charge at your left side. if you time it right, the duck will pick you up when your sword is sticking out while you're dashing. When you enter the map screen, press B to cancel and the duck will put you back down on the ground. Here you will start walking funny and when you touch a solid surface, you will bounce off of it. now go up to the right-most green totem statue so you're facing up. walk into it and bounce off into the deep water. (if you just go directly into the water the trick won't work) Swim towards the water portal and get transported to that place east of the graveyard. If done correctly, you should be standing on the water instead of swimming. Here you can walk around any screen you like and still be walking, but do NOT jump onto one of those green platforms or the trick will stop immediately. And also, it is okay to use the Pegasus Boots, but if you crash into something, you will start swimming again. and if you call up the Flute Duck and press B to cancel the map selection, you'll be swimming.

  9. Change color of Agahnim's skin/clothes

    During the Light World fight with Agahnim, he turns into a shadow, and moves around like that. If you bring up the map exactly when he is turning from shadow to real form, his colors will be really distorted, or he will look transparent, just like the 2 fake ones during the second fight. If you keep doing it, his colors will keep changing.

  10. Walk through walls

    In most areas of the game this glitch is possible. It allows Link to walk through walls, but in some areas the game, will glitch, and Link will be "frozen", or, unable to move in any direction at all. All you need are the Pegasus Boots and the Magic Mirror. One example is in the East Palace. Once you enter, pick up the pot and throw it. Then step on the switch. The door in front of Link should open. Go through the door, step on the switch, and dash threw the enemies through the next door. Then attempt to jump off the ledge to the left. But as Link's jumping off, before he's in mid-air and as soon as he makes the "hup" sound when leaping off, use the Magic Mirror to make Link appear back at the dungeon's entrance. Then repeat the first two steps untill you're back in the room with the ledge. If you've done the glitch correctly so far, when you dash into the statue on the right, Link should turn invisible when he lands back on the ground. This make take a few tries. NOTE: When Link attempts to walk out of the walls, he will jump back on to normal ground again and the glitch will have to be redone.

  11. Swimming on Land

    It is indeed possible to swim anywhere in Hyrule. Call the flute bird and go to warp point 4 (your house). Go down one screen and kill all the monsters. Face the pool of water to your left, and call the flute again. Immidiately pegasus boot into the water. After you automatically stop at the water's edge, the flute bird will pick you up. Cancel the flight and when it sets you down you will still be on land --- but swimming! You can freely visit anywhere in Hyrule, but if you get injured or jump off a ledge you lose this ability. You also cannot access any items. Have fun!

  12. The Chickens Attack!

    The Chickens found in Kakariko Village and other areas have a vendetta against you; that is, of course, if you attack them. Hit a chicken enough with your various weapons, whether it be sword, arrow, bomb, whatever, and the chickens will come from all directions to peck you!

    Contributed by: mh204 

  13. Hopping Hare

    In the Light World, go south of Link's house into the swamp. There you will find a blue rabbit jumping up and down in the grass. When it jumps up, cut up the grass below it, then when it comes down, go over to it and touch it. It will give a random item, such as 1 to 300 rupees, or a fairy. This can only be done before you reach the Dark World for the first time.

  14. Different Statues in Links house

    After you get all the statues from completing the riddles go into your house and select the magic powder. Sprinkle it on the statues and they will sparkle. Sprinkle magic powder on them again to get them in color. Sprinkle them one final time to get Bunny Link, skinless chicken, and Zelda as an old lady.

  15. Picture of Mario

    Go to the Treasure chest shop in the dark world in the Village of Outcasts. In the very back of the house, a picture of mario is hanging on the wall.

  16. Exploding head

    In the light world, go to where you recieved the flute. Go down one screen. To the right where there are two trees. Stand next to the top tree and use the Ether medalion. Walk away from the tree and ram into it with Pegasus Boots and a head like Blind in her human-ish form will fall down and explode as if it were a bomb.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past Cheats For Super Nintendo

  1. Aquire Invisibility Cape Early

    There is a way to get the Magic Cape right after you get the Hammer in the Palace of Darkness(Dark World's 1st dungeon). In the graveyard in the Light World you'll notice there are dark colored rocks with the number 8 on the them surrounding a tombstone, but if you go to the same place in the dark world you can cut down a flower and dash into a pile of rocks that usually reveals a red ruby(worth 20 rubies). In this place you need to use your Magic Mirror north of the rock pile. If you've done this right you can circumvent the dark colored rocks in the Light World.

    Note: You need to use the Magic Transprter between the Kakariko Village and the Lost Woods to reach this location.

  2. Free Green Potion

    Throw an empty bottle into the fountain at the Waterfall of Wishing. The faerie who appears will give you a free green potion.

  3. The Lost Woods with Dark World Enemies

    In the Dark World, go and stand EXACTLY where the mushroom is in the Light world(Somewhere in the Skull Dungeon). When you use the Magic Mirror to go back to the Light World,not only will you get the Mushroom but the trees will be glitched and you'll be able to fight some of the monsters that are only in the Dark World! When you leave the forest, everything will go back to normal.

  4. Death Mountain Descent

    Death Mountain Descent will allow you to explore all of Dark World without obtaining the third pendant, the Master Sword, or defeating Agahnim.

    First, you'll want to get the Moon Pearl out of the Tower of Hera. That's necessary unless you want to stay as a bunny the entire time. Once you've acquired it, exit the dungeon. Now hop in the teleporter just outside the Tower of Hera and go to Dark World. Hop down the cliff, and make your way to the right. Go to where the broken bridge used to be in Light World.

    Now stand right under the top statue, as far against the wall and statue as you can get. Mirror to Light World. This is the tricky part, you must move ONE PIXEL to the right. No more, no less. If you don't do it correctly, you have to start all over. After you've moved, wait until you get teleported back to Dark World. You should be ONE PIXEL closer to the ledge now. Now DON'T MOVE! If you move, you will have to start over again. Mirror back to Light World.

    Now walk to the right until you're stopped by the bridge post. Wait until you stop flashing, and hold down the B button until your sword charges up, while still facing right. SLOWLY move backwards into the sparkly teleporter. If you don't do this slow enough, the trick won't work. When you teleport, if you don't get teleported back to Light World, you did the trick correctly. Now press right to jump off the cliff into the black stuff. Make your way around the black stuff and to the bottom of the screen.

    Go down one screen and you'll be on top of a cliff in Dark World. Hop off the cliff and you're now allowed to explore Dark World! If everything is glitchy, enter a cave, then exit and things will be normal looking.

  5. Hookshot invulnerability

    Anytime you have the Hookshot equipped, if any enemy or projectile comes to attack you, use the Hookshot, and while the Hookshot is extended, the attack will go right through you, and you will take no damage.

    Contributed by: durango 

  6. Chris Houlihan room

    Start at the Sanctuary and run south with the Pegasus Shoes until you are outside. Then, run south and stop before you hit the barrier. Proceed to run west until you are able to run south. When you run south, you should be in a wooded area with guards. Navigate this area and find the entrance to the castle grounds. While still running, go around the castle grounds to the hole where you fall into at the beginning of the game. If you did it right, you should be in a room with 45 blue rupees and a Saharasla sign that says: ''My name is Chris Houlihan'' and ''Let's keep this between you and me.'' Sometimes when you are fighting Gannon, you may fall into a hole and this may happen.
