The Legend Of Zelda: A Link To The Past

Chris Houlihan room:
Start your game at the Sanctuary and immediately run south with your 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 heavily 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 done correctly and fast enough, you should be in a room with 45 blue rupees and a Saharasla tab that says: "My name is Chris Houlihan" and "Let's keep this between you and me." Note: This may require several attempts.
Information in this section was contributed by Scott Holland.

Start from the Sancturay and quickly run to the cemetery. Immediately go to the top left corner of the screen where the gravestone is located that opens up into the passage that leads you back to the sanctuary. Move the rocks and push the gravestone open, but do not fall into it. Once opened, turn around but do not walk forward. Plant a bomb and let it blow up and throw you into the hole. You will land in the Houlihan room.

Sometimes when you sprinkle the magic dust on a bush it will turn into a rupee.
Information in this section was contributed by Sid DeJean.

Hint: Extra bombs or arrows:
Go to the Pond Of Happiness in the lower right corner of the map and throw in rupees until a fairy appears. She will ask if you want to carry more bombs or arrows.

Information in this section was contributed by Nada97.

Hint: Super bomb:
Complete the Ice Palace followed by the Misery Mire Maze. Go to your house in the Dark World and buy the orange and white bomb.
Information in this section was contributed by E5TBJST.

If you defeat the Bosses in Palaces 5 and 6 first, you can get the Super Bomb. This will allow you to get the fourth sword and the Silver Arrows, Because you can go to Palace 7, you can also get the Big Shield. Of course, you cannot get the red mail until you defeat the other Bosses.
Information in this section was contributed by Clotho.

Hint: Flying bomb:
This trick requires arrows and bombs. Equip the bombs and arrows. Then, press the button to release a bomb and try to release the arrow at the same time. This will create an exploding flying bomb.
Information in this section was contributed by ZELDA7311.

Hint: Treasure trees:
Go to different trees and charge in to them. For example, there is a tree in the village next to the underground hut. Run in to it, and 20 rupees will appear. Go into a house, exit, and do it again. This is a good way to get unlimited rupees. The following is a list of items that you can get from the trees: magic, apples (health), bees, faires, money, and bombs.
Information in this section was contributed by Frogggy2009.

Hint: No Hookshot needed:
After you get the Hammer from the first dungeon in the Dark World, you can already get to the third or fourth level without the Hookshot. First, get the Hammer and return to the Light World. The exact location does not matter. Go to the town. On the northern side of the town are two direct entrances to the northwest of the town that lead to the Lost Woods (the forest area). If you take the entrance that is second from the left, you will see a heavy rock blocking your path. Take the entrance furthest west and find a back way into the entrance that is to the right of the one furthest west (this should not be difficult). When you come out, walk down to find wooden pegs that you can use the Hammer on. Once you get past those, you are behind the heavy rock. When you pick up the light rock in the middle of the area, there will be a teleportation pad that will take you to the Dark World. You will be in the town that you originally would not have been able to reach without the Hookshot.

Hint: Easy wins:
When you get the Boomerang, use it to freeze enemies until you can defeat them. Note: This may not work on the Bosses of the castles where you get the pennants.
Information in this section was contributed by Clint Faulkner.

Hint: Easy health:
Go in the house on the mountain that belongs to the old man who gave you the magic mirror. Talk to him to get full health. Then, go to the stairs behind him and lift up the pot. Leave the house and go into the cave to the right. Go back in and repeat as many times as desired.
Information in this section was contributed by aaron.

Hint: Magic refill:
Go to the fairy that is hidden in the waterfall near the entrance to Zora's waterfall. Approach the pond and throw in an empty bottle. The fairy will fill it with magic before return it to your character.

Hint: Defeating Agahnim:
When you first encounter Aganhim, he has three attacks: Fireball, Ice and Lightning. When he goes to the upper middle section of the room, it indicates that he will release Lightning. To avoid getting hit, go to his left or right side (but do not touch him).
Information in this section was contributed by karel merito.

Hint: Defeating Ganon:
When you fall in the hole that the bat made, Ganon will be there. Before he can talk to you, strike him with your Golden Sword. After your conversation, approach him and strike him six or seven times while dodging his trident. He will teleport. Instead of throwing his trident, he will release about eight small fireballs that turn into fire bats. Use the Cane Of Byrna or the Magic Cape to attack him instead of dodging around. You must do this over ten times. He will teleport again. If you fail to attack him first, he will release a fire bat that will make a spiral of flames. If you hit him first, he will make a quake on the ground. The upper left floor will collapse. Do this four times. The border floor will become a hole. He will tell you that you can fight the Secret Technique of Darkness. After that, the lights will go off. Use the Firerod or Lamp to light the lamp stands. Then, immediately strike him. Then, immediately change your item to Silver Arrows. You can hit him two times if you are quick enough. It takes four arrows to destroy Ganon. If you were slow in stunning him, just light the stands if the fire goes out. You can defeat Ganon even you do not have medicine.
Information in this section was contributed by karel merito.

Hint: Defeating Moldorm:
Although Moldorm in the Mountain Tower is extremely difficult to defeat, if you use the Dash Attack, you can run right through his body taking no damage. If you line it up correctly, you can attack his tail. This makes him much easier to defeat. Make sure to stop running before you get to the edge.
Information in this section was contributed by Aidan Whelan.

Moldorm starts out very slow and does not go after you. When he moves in a straight line, hit his tail. He will now slowly go after you if you get too close to him, but only for a short time. Hit his tail again to get him. Repeat this three or four more times to defeat him. Note: You will know when you are close to defeating him when he hardly ever moves in a straight line; and on the last hit he gets way faster and never goes in a straight line.
Information in this section was contributed by Gentlescorpion.

Hint: Defeating Trinexx:
To defeat Trinexx very easily, you must first have the following: at least one Fairy, The Staff Of Byrna, Fire Rod, Ice Rod, Golden Sword, and the 1/2 Magic Meter. Once you get to Trinexx, it helps having as many hearts as possible. Start by taking out the Cold Head. Hit it once with the Fire Rod then at least three times with the Golden Sword. It should then go back to normal. If done correctly, hit it with the Fire Rod one more time to take it out. If not, keep doing it until it is gone. Then, do the same thing with the Fire Head, except use the Ice Rod instead of the Fire Rod. After both of the heads are taken out, wait until Trinexx's shell is broken. It will break on its own. Having the 1/2 Magic Meter will allow you to a good amount of magic remaining. Use the Staff Of Byrna to make yourself invincible, then get Trinexx while he is slithering on the floor, up against the southern part of the room. Hit him with your sword a few times. If done correctly, Trinexx should be down in a very short amount of time. You are free to leave after getting the Heart Container and the seventh maiden (Zelda).

Go to Crystal 1. You must have at least 110 rupees. Get the Hammer and leave. Go to Crystal 3. Get the Firerod and leave. Then, go to Crystal 4. Get the Titan's Mitt and leave. Next, finish Crystal 5. After it, purchase the Super Bomb at the Bomb Shop. Go to the pyramid to blow up the crack. Then, turn your arrow into Silver Arrows. Go back to Crystal 1. Blow the mask off the Boss. Afterwards you must hit the Green Crystal in his forehead. It will be gone with just one shot of the Silver Arrows. Then, go to Crystal 2.Get the Hookshot and go to the Boss. Kill the cotton-like enemies with the Hookshot and Sword. Wait for him to disappear and reappear again. Equip the Silver Arrows. With just a shot of it, it will die instantly. The Silver Arrows also kills the Bosses in the Final Dungeon (i.e., the Bosses of the First and Second Pendants Dungeons) in just a single shot; six arrows for the six statues and three arrows for the three worms.
Information in this section was contributed by karel merito.

Hint: Defeating the Ice Palace Boss:
In the deepest level of the Ice Palace, there is a monster of ice and snow. While encased in ice, nothing can harm it except for the Fire Rod, and it takes a lot of magic to break the the crust. Alternately, use the Bombos Medallion just once and immediately shatter the ice, enabling the sword to damage it.
Information in this section was contributed by KishinD.

Hint: Easy Ice Palace:
Before you go into Ice Palace, go to Misery Mire and get the Cane -- you can also complete that area if desired. Then, enter the Ice Palace and go to the room where you have to push the block onto the switch to enter the door.. You now can just use the cane instead of doing that.
Information in this section was contributed by mcafee53.

At the part of the dungeon where you need to push the block on the switch to keep the door open (a few rooms before the Boss.), simply use the Cane of Somoria on it. The cane is found in Dark World level 6.
Information in this section was contributed by shujinco2.

Hint: Dungeon 6:
The Hookshot is not needed to get inside Dungeon 6. Move behind the block in the beginning, then dash into it. While your character is in the air moving to the right, hold Right until reaching the other side. The same technique may be followed to exit the dungeon by using the other block.
Information in this section was contributed by Jesse Smith.

Hint: Easy rupees:
Go to the Lost Woods immediately above where the lumberjacks are located to find a tunnel. Enter it to discover three chests. The man there will offer to open one of the chests for 100 rupees. One chest contains 20 rupees, but both of the other cheats contain 300 rupees. Note: This may only be done once.

The magic powder can be used to turn the spinning enemies that take both hearts and energy into a fairy. However, this does not work on the ones that guard the switch to open the chest to the big key in Palace 1 in the Light World.

Skull Woods: Go into the Dark World and go to the entrance to the woods. Use the hammer and open the 8 stone.

Ice Palace: Go to the island in the Light World that requires 5 or 20 rupees to be thrown. Pull the black stone and go to the Dark World.
Misery Mire: Use the flute to go to destination 6. Pull the black stone and enter the desert in Dark World.

Turtle Rock: Use the same method for the Death Mountain Palace and go to the right. Use the hammer and continue going right. When you see a big black stone blocking three hammer objects, pick it up.

Information in this section was contributed by croc_hunter2.

Find any chicken (even dead ones in the Dark World) outside of a house. Corner it, then use any available item to attack it. Keep hitting it until you are suddenly attacked by flying deadly chickens. The amount of time you need to wait depends on the item you use. The more powerful, the less the wait. To flee from the attack, leave the area into a new screen, or pick up the chicken.
Information in this section was contributed by CharKay and DoodleBugger.

Hint: Avoid tile damage:
In the rooms with the tiles that fly at you, stand in the doorway you came in from, facing towards the room. You will not lose any hearts because the tiles will just break on your shield.
Information in this section was contributed by Justin.

Hint: Extra lives in dungeons:
Use the magic powder on the white-and-red flying skulls to transform them into fairies.
Information in this section was contributed by cartoonland.

Hint: Four way fireball shooters:
In some dungeons there are small yellow boxes that shoot fireballs. To avoid getting hit, do not stand in the path of a fireball and swipe your sword. The fireball shooters will only shoot if you swipe your sword. Also, it only will fire out of the side that you are closest to. Note: These are the yellow boxes, and not the boxes that have faces on them.
Information in this section was contributed by Trashman2036.

Hint: Advance to the Fourth Dark World level:
This trick can be done as early as after completing the First Dark World dungeon. Note: The enemies in this level are very difficult if encountered earlier in the game without the preparations the other dungeons will provide. After you have gained the Magic Hammer, enter the Lost Woods by the farthest left entrance in Kakariko village. Once inside, turn right, then exit. Bash the two different spikes. Under the stone is a portal. The only point of entering early is getting the Big Key and Golden Gloves very early, saving the Smith, and getting the Level 3 sword before even entering the second dungeon. This makes the rest of the game up to the fifth or sixth dungeon much easier.
Information in this section was contributed by IShinji32.

Hint: Get into The Dark World before getting the Master Sword:
This trick will only work if you have the Moon Pearl, but you do not need the third Pendant. At the top of the mountain in the Light World is a warp to the Dark World. Use this, then travel down to where the bridge would be. Squeeze very close to it, then use the Mirror to travel to the Light World. Do the lightest button-tap possible, then wait for the portal to bring you back. Do not move. Use the mirror again, and when you are in the Light World, walk into the fence. Facing the fence, charge your sword and slowly move back into the portal. You should now be on the edge of the cliff. Move right to jump off, then walk to where you see a lava break and a rock next to each other (at the bottom of the screen.) Move in between them and move down. The screen should move to you on a hill in the Dark World.

Hint: More money for fish:
Once you drain the lake to get the heart piece you can pick up the fish in the swamp.

When you first meet the lumberjacks near the thieves' forest, they are cutting down a tree which they say feels weird. If you return to this spot after your first visit to the Dark World, or when the Lumberjacks leave, you will find the same tree which now looks as if it has a lip near the bottom. If you use the boots to run into this lip, the branches will disintegrate, leaving a hole for you to fall into. Inside, if you go up the ladder and down the other side, are four faeries flying around. They will regenerate when you leave by the door and return through the tree.
