Kill all the enemies except for one in a particular screen, and next time you go through there will only be that one enemy there, instead of them all coming back.

Refill Red Water of Life
If you bought a red-colored Water of Life, when you use it once, it turns blue, meaning you can only use it once more before it disappears. To refill it from blue to red without buying a second Red Water of Life from the Old Woman, buy a Blue Water of Life. Doing so will make it red again.

Kill Gohma easily.
Before entering Gohma's room, ready the bow and arrows. Now go inside and quickly shoot an arrow. Gohma will be exactly in front of you with his eye open so he will die in one shot.

Automatic health restoration
When your health gauge is low, visit a lake of a Great Fairy to restore your life. When you approach the lake, your health will slowly fill. While your health is being restored, press start to enter the item selection subscreen, and your health will continue to fill. Using a controller in port 2, press Up + A to return to the save menu. Select SAVE, and load your character's file. Once loaded, instead of remaining at the default of 3 filled heart containers, Link will have his health fully restored at the start.

Undo The Bubble Curse Instantly
If you're touched by a flashing bubble, instead of waiting for its curse to wear off, immediately blow the whistle. The moment you stop playing, you'll have the ability to use your sword again. (NOTE: This trick doesn't work against the red bubbles in the second quest.)

Keep The Hungry Goriya From Stealing Your Bait
In some labyrinths, you'll encounter a Goriya who will grumble at you and refuse to move until you give him your bait in exchange for him letting you go forward. However, there is a way to keep this from happening.
The moment you hear the 'secret found' sound effect, switch to your inventory screen and, on controller 2, press Up and A to go to the Continue/Save/Retry screen. When you return to your game, you'll find that you still have your bait but the Goriya is no longer there.

Immediately after you enter Level 1, exit. Now when you re-enter, you'll notice the northern door has been magically unlocked! This will give you an extra key in case you get stuck in further dungeons.

[FAMICOM ONLY] Pols Voice Trick
Due to the fact that only the actual Famicom has the microphone on the second controller, you can only do this on the original Famicom. Pols Voice can be killed by speaking into the microphone on the controller for Player 2.
