  2. Chicken War

    When you find a chicken in Mabe village, hit it with your sword around 15 times. After, chickens from Mabe Village will start attack you. BEWARE: You can lose all your hearts just from this. To get out of this, go into a different screen.

  3. Missile Shots

    Have both bombs and arrows ready, then press both buttons at the same time. If done correctly, the bomb should be flying on the arrow.

  4. Level 8 before Level 7

    Normally you cannot enter dungeon 8 because of the fire thing you need the mirror shield to get around. But, if you have a potion, use the potion when you would normally die from the fire. You will be invincible for 3-4 seconds, in which you can run through the flames! After this, just defeat the dragon thingy and enter level 8!

  5. Invincible Rooster

    You need the Boomerang, and the Rooster you get after Level 5. Throw your boomerang. Now pick up the Rooster. The boomerang will float underneath you, and kill anything you pass over while flying!

  6. Steal Shop Items

    If you don't want to pay the outrageous prices for items in the Mabe Village shop, you CAN steal items. To do this, simply walk up to the item and pick it up as if you were going to buy it. While holding the item, walk BEHIND the shopkeeper, and then quickly walk out the door while he is facing the other way. This may require more than one try, especially on the more expensive items (like the Shovel or Bow). If you succeed, however, there are drawbacks. First of all, everyone will call you THIEF instead of the name you used, and the next time you enter the shop, the shopkeeper will kill you.

  7. Cheaper Items

    This only works on an item as expensive as the bow, or maybe the shovel if you're quick. Begin paying for the item and save and quit, (a+b+select+start) and then load your game again. You should have more money left (as much as remained when you saved) and you don't have to finish paying.

  8. Different Ending

    Beat the game without dying. You will see a picture of Marin in the ending.

  9. Always Win at the Crane Game

    Move the crane directly above the left conveyor belt using the B button. When the item that you want to pick up gets to the very top of the right conveyor belt (but not on the top conveyor belt), tap A. The crane will move down and grab the item.

  10. Hookshot invulnerability.

    Anytime you have the Hookshot equipped, if an enemy comes toward you, or it launches a projectile at you, simply use the Hookshot and as it launches out, the enemy/projectile will go straight through you, and you will take no damage.

  11. Bouncy Tiles Glitch

    In the color dungeon, there are tiles that when on them you bounce around and they turn from green to yellow to red and then a hole appears. If you walk over them with a pot in your hands, you will not bounce and will just walk across it, without changing the color of the tiles.

  12. Underworld Glitch

    This glitch is useful, because the famous screenwarp glitch is fixed in the DX version. First, kill 4 enemies on the overworld (Mysterious Woods is the closest), then go to Mabe Village. Walk behind BowWow's kennel, stand behind the top right corner of it and walk in to it and hold Down + Left. If successful, you will enter a glitched world, otherwise try again. In glitched world, you can find treasure from much later in the game like the Magic Rod. Refer to the Underworld Treasure Guide FAQ for further information.

  13. Secret Track in Richard's Villa

    Go into Richard's house and wait until the music has looped a few times. Eventually it will stop, then play a little tune found in Mario Paint and Yoshi's Story, then the regular music will start up again.
