A long time ago...

Before life began, before the world had form, three golden goddesses descended
upon the chaotic land of Hyrule. They were Din, the goddess of power, Nayru,
the goddess of wisdom and Farore, the goddess of courage.

Din, with her strong flaming arms, cultivated the land to create the Earth.
Nayru poured her wisdom onto the Earth to give the spirit of law to the world.
Farore's rich soul created all life forms who would uphold the law.

These three great goddesses returned to the heavens, leaving behind 
the golden sacred Triforce. Since then, the Triforce has become the 
basis for Hyrule's providence. Where the Triforce stood became sacred land.

In the vast, deep forest of Hyrule, the great Deku Tree served as the guardian
spirit. The children of the forest, the Kokiri, lived with the great Deku Tree.
Each Kokiri had his or her own guardian fairy, except one. His name was Link.

Early one morning, Link was having a nightmare. It was the same nightmare he
had every night, During a storm, Link would find himself standing in front of
a mysterious castle. A rider on horseback, carrying a girl, would race by. The
girl would look at Link as if to say something. Then, another rider would
appear. This big man clad in black would look down menacingly at Link.
Link would then awaken.

                                                                          5
_________________________________________________________

"Link! Hey, get up, Link! The great Deku Tree wants to talk to you!"

As Link opened his eyes, he saw a fairy floating in front of him. This fairy's
name was Navi. Navi was sent to summon Link to the great Deku Tree.

"Oh Navi, thou has returned!" Said the Deku Tree. "Thank you, Link, for coming.
Thy slumber these past moons must have been restless, and full of nightmare. 
A vile climate pervades this world. Verily, ye have felt it. The time has come
to test thine courage. I have been cursed. I need you to dispel the curse with
your wisdom and courage. Art thou prepared?"

Link entered the great Deku Tree and broke the curse.

"Well done, Link! I knew that ye were worthy of carrying out my wishes. A
wicked man of the desert cast this dreadful curse on me. Employing his vile,
sorcerous energies, the evil one is searching for the Sacred Realm connected
to Hyrule. For it is there that one will find the divine relic, the Triforce,
that contains the essence of the gods. Whoever holds the Triforce can make
their wishes come true. Thou must never allow the desert man to lay his hands
on the sacred Triforce. Thou must never suffer that man to enter the Sacred
Realm of legend. Link, go now the Hyrule Castle. There, ye will surely meet
the princess of destiny. Present this stone to the princess. I have foreseen
that she will understand everything."

The great Deku Tree gave Link the spiritual stone of the forest. Before
dying, the Deku Tree's last words were, "The future depends upon thee, Link.
Thou art courageous."

                                                                          6

When Link gets close to an enemy or object that Navi can help with, she flies
in that direction. That enemy or object has a triangle mark next to it. If you
press the Z Button, Link looks in Navi's direction, and the enemy or object is
surrounded by the Focus Cursor. This is called Z Targeting. When you use Z
Targeting, the Navi icon appears in the top right corner of the screen. Press
the C[up] Button to read Navi's advice.

Control Stick (see page 13).

surrounded by a cursor, press the A Button to talk.

_________________________________________________________

Introducing the C Items
Some items, those with numbers located next to them, have limited uses.
When you carry the maximum number of items, the number turns green. 
With some items, you can increase the maximum number.

 Deku Stick  (Child Link)
 The Deku Stick works like a sword, but is much weaker. They break very
 easily. Deku Sticks can also work as torches. Find them after defeating
 enemies or purchase them in stores.

 Fairy Slingshot  (Child Link)
 Use the Slingshot to shoot enemies or objects that are far away. Hold the C
 Button and Link's hands zooms in. Aim with the Control Stick and release
 the C Button to shoot. If you use Z Targeting before shooting, your
 accuracy will increase greatly. If you just hold the C Button, you can aim
 the Slingshot without shooting it. Collect Deku Seeds to refill your
 ammunition.

 Boomerang  (Child Link)
 If you throw it, it comes back! The Boomerang can stun or defeat enemies.
 Use Z Targeting to improve your accuracy. Some enemies can only be defeated
 with the Boomerang.

                                                                          22

SELECT ITEM SUBSCREEN

 Deku Nut
 Throw a Deku Nut on the ground and a bright light flashes, temporarily
 stunning enemies (the Deku nut cannot stun all enemies). Deku Nuts can be
 found practically everywhere.

 Ocarina of Time
 Play the Ocarina of Time at certain times and special things may happen.
 With the Ocarina, you can also warp to other places (see page 30).

 Fairy Ocarina
 This has the same effect as the Ocarina of Time, but disappears once you
 receive it.

 Lens of Truth
 See which walls are real and which are fake with the Lens of Truth. Using
 this item consumes magic.

 Bomb
 Damage enemies or blow up walls with the Bomb. Be careful not to get too
 close to the blast or you may get hurt. Bombs explode approximately four
 seconds after you pick them up (see page 18).

 Bombchu
 Pick up a Bombchu and set it at your feet. It will start running by itself.
 If it hits an object, or runs for a while without hitting anything, it will
 explode. Once it starts running, you have no control over it.

 Magic Bean
 Place Magic Beans at certain locations and they eventually sprout. Z
 Targeting comes in handy when trying to decide where to plant a Magic Bean.

                                                                          23

What is a Dungeon?
If you want to restore peace to Hyrule, you need to journey into the dungeons.

Treasure Chests/Dungeon Items
Treasure chests come in various sizes. Big chests hide important items such as
maps and compasses.

 Dungeon Map
 A dungeon map shows all the rooms in a dungeon, including your current

TIPS FOR YOUR ADVENTURE

This section provides you with some helpful hints for your adventure. It is
the hope of all people of Hyrule that your wisdom and courage will bring peace
back to Hyrule.

While you are playing the game, you discover that Link has aged seven years
since his adventure began. During that seven-year span, the atmosphere of
Hyrule has changed dramatically. Things Link does in his childhood affects
him as an adult.

In the village of Hyrule, if you do something at the Temple of Time, you will
be able to travel between these two time periods. This time travel is
necessary for you to progress through your adventure.

Make sure to visit the people you met as a child. You never know what has
happened to them in seven years.

                                                                          34
________________________________________________________

TIPS FOR YOUR ADVENTURE

The Passage of Time in Hyrule
Time passes in Hyrule. Day turns regularly to night. There are enemies who
only appear at night, many stores that are closed at night and people who
only appear during the day. Make sure to visit places during the day and
night.

 Time stands still in Kakariko Village and Hyrule Castle Town Market. It's a
 good idea to travel to other areas in Hyrule, where time passes, before
 going to these places.

Don't Waste Rupees!
There are many stores in Hyrule. In the stores, many helpful items are
available for purchase. Some items are very expensive. If you have enough
Rupees, you can buy these expensive items. In some stores, you can obtain
these valuable items without paying or in exchange for certain things. Try
to think about other ways to obtain items without wasting Rupees.

 Some items cost more than the maximum number of Rupees you can collect.

                                                                          35
_____________________________________________________

Cutting the Grass
Grass can be cut with the sword (or picked up and thrown). When cutting the
grass, you sometimes find Hearts or Rupees. When you find yourself short on
items, try cutting the grass. You never know what you'll find.

 Make sure to check under rocks and inside vases, too.

Collecting the Golden Skulltula
When you defeat the Gold Skulltulas (spider monsters), they change into Golden
Skull Tokens. Collect these Tokens and you can exchange them at certain places
for helpful items. The number of Golden Skulltulas you've collected appear on
the Quest Status Subscreen.

 The more Skull Tokens you collect, the more items you can obtain. If you
 defeat all of the Gold Skulltulas in a dungeon or area, a mark appears on
 the corresponding map. If the mark does not appear, then Golden Skulltulas
 are lurking somewhere nearby. Some Skulltulas cannot be defeated without
 obtaining a certain item.

                                                                          36
______________________________________________________

TIPS FOR YOUR ADVENTURE

Setting the C Items
You will obtain various items during your adventure. More than likely,
dungeons hide important items. You should equip dungeon items immediately.
Use items that you find not only in dungeons, but in other places around
Hyrule. Use the C Buttons to assign these items.

All Enemies Have Weaknesses
Enemies are everywhere in the dungeons, and you can be sure that they will
attack Link. Stay calm and keep an eye on your enemies with the Z Button. When
you do this, if you press the C[up] Button, Navi tells you each enemy's
weakness. Knowing an enemy's weakness is the best way to defeat it. If a
sword doesn't work, try using an item in conjunction with the sword.

                                                                          37
_________________________________________________________

Find the Fairy Fountains to Regain Hearts
Fairy Fountains are found all over Hyrule, although some of them are hard to
find. Visit these fountains to refill your Life Energy. Make sure to look
everywhere.

Ride the Horse
Traveling by foot in Hyrule can take a long time. It's a good idea to use a
horse. Horses can be found at Lon Lon Ranch. With a horse, you'll be able to
cross the Hylian plains in no time. Although you can only ride the horse in
certain places, it will always be waiting for you if you need to go somewhere.

You must do something special before you can fide the horse, and you can only
ride it when Link is an adult. the number of carrots on the screen indicates
the number of times you can increase the horse's speed.
                                                                          38

Stone of Agony

Get Help With the Stone of Agony!
The Stone of Agony is an item you may find in Hyrule.  When you are near
treasure chests or hidden items, if you have the Stone of Agony, your
controller rumbles (only with the Rumble Pak accessory).

Let's Go Fishing!
There's a pond near Lake Hylia where you can go fishing. If you catch a big
fish, something good will happen. If you have the Rumble Pak accessory, you
will feel a tug on your line.

In the vast deep forest of Hyrule, the great Deku Tree served as the guardian
Spirit. The children of the forest, the Kokiri, lived with the great Deku Tree.
Each Kokiri had his or her own guardian fairy, except one. His name was Link.

Early one morning, Link was having a nightmare. It was the same nightmare he
had every night, During a storm, Link would find himself standing in front of
a mysterious castle. A rider on horseback, carrying a girl, would race by. The
girl would look at Link as if to say something. Then, another rider would
appear. This big man clad in black would look down menacingly at Link.
Link would then awaken.

                                                                          5
_________________________________________________________

"Link! Hey, get up, Link! The great Deku Tree wants to talk to you!"

As Link opened his eyes, he saw a fairy floating in front of him. This fairy's
name was Navi. Navi was sent to summon Link to the great Deku Tree.

"Oh Navi, thou has returned!" Said the Deku Tree. "Thank you, Link, for coming.
Thy slumber these past moons must have been restless, and full of nightmare. 
A vile climate pervades this world. Verily, ye have felt it. The time has come
to test tine courage. I have been cursed. I need you to dispel the curse with
your wisdom and courage. Art thou prepared?"

Link entered the great Deku Tree and broke the curse.

"Well done, Link! I knew that ye were worthy of carrying out my wishes. A
wicked man of the desert cast this dreadful curse on me. Employing his vile,
sorceress energies, the evil one is searching for the Sacred Realm connected
to Hyrule. For it is there that one will find the divine relic, the Triforce,
that contains the essence of the gods. Whoever holds the Triforce can make
their wishes come true. Thou must never allow the desert man to lay his hands
on the sacred Triforce. Thou must never suffer that man to enter the Sacred
Realm of legend. Link, go now the Hyrule Castle. There, ye will surely meet
the princess of destiny. Present this stone to the princess. I have foreseen
that she will understand everything."

The great Deku Tree gave Link the spiritual stone of the forest. Before
dying, the Deku Tree's last words were, "The future depends upon thee, Link.
Thou art courageous."

                                                                          6

TIPS FOR YOUR ADVENTURE

This section provides you with some helpful hints for your adventure. It is
the hope of all people of Hyrule that your wisdom and courage will bring peace
back to Hyrule.

While you are playing the game, you discover that Link has aged seven years
since his adventure began. During that seven-year span, the atmosphere of
Hyrule has changed dramatically. Things Link does in his childhood affects
him as an adult.

In the village of Hyrule, if you do something at the Temple of Time, you will
be able to travel between these two time periods. This time travel is
necessary for you to progress through your adventure.

Make sure to visit the people you met as a child. You never know what has
happened to them in seven years.

                                                                          34
________________________________________________________

TIPS FOR YOUR ADVENTURE

The Passage of Time in Hyrule
Time passes in Hyrule. Day turns regularly to night. There are enemies who
only appear at night, many stores that are closed at night and people who
only appear during the day. Make sure to visit places during the day and
night.

 Time stands still in Kakariko Village and Hyrule Castle Town Market. It's a
 good idea to travel to other areas in Hyrule, where time passes, before
 going to these places.

Don't Waste Rupees!
There are many stores in Hyrule. In the stores, many helpful items are
available for purchase. Some items are very expensive. If you have enough
Rupees, you can buy these expensive items. In some stores, you can obtain
these valuable items without paying or in exchange for certain things. Try
to think about other ways to obtain items without wasting Rupees.

 Some items cost more than the maximum number of Rupees you can collect.

                                                                          35
_____________________________________________________

Cutting the Grass
Grass can be cut with the sword (or picked up and thrown). When cutting the
grass, you sometimes find Hearts or Rupees. When you find yourself short on
items, try cutting the grass. You never know what you'll find.

 Make sure to check under rocks and inside vases, too.

Collecting the Golden Skulltula
When you defeat the Gold Skulltulas (spider monsters), they change into Golden
Skull Tokens. Collect these Tokens and you can exchange them at certain places
for helpful items. The number of Golden Skulltulas you've collected appear on
the Quest Status Subscreen.

 The more Skull Tokens you collect, the more items you can obtain. If you

TIPS FOR YOUR ADVENTURE

Setting the C Items
You will obtain various items during your adventure. More than likely,
dungeons hide important items. You should equip dungeon items immediately.
Use items that you find not only in dungeons, but in other places around
Hyrule. Use the C Buttons to assign these items.

All Enemies Have Weaknesses
Enemies are everywhere in the dungeons, and you can be sure that they will
attack Link. Stay calm and keep an eye on your enemies with the Z Button. When
you do this, if you press the C[up] Button, Navi tells you each enemy's
weakness. Knowing an enemy's weakness is the best way to defeat it. If a
sword doesn't work, try using an item in conjunction with the sword.

                                                                          37

Find the Fairy Fountains to Regain Hearts
Fairy Fountains are found all over Hyrule, although some of them are hard to
find. Visit these fountains to refill your Life Energy. Make sure to look
everywhere.

Ride the Horse
Traveling by foot in Hyrule can take a long time. It's a good idea to use a
horse. Horses can be found at Lon Lon Ranch. With a horse, you'll be able to
cross the Hylian plains in no time. Although you can only ride the horse in
certain places, it will always be waiting for you if you need to go somewhere.

You must do something special before you can fide the horse, and you can only
ride it when Link is an adult. the number of carrots on the screen indicates
the number of times you can increase the horse's speed.

TIPS FOR YOUR ADVENTURE

Stone of Agony

Get Help With the Stone of Agony!
The Stone of Agony is an item you may find in Hyrule.  When you are near
treasure chests or hidden items, if you have the Stone of Agony, your
controller rumbles (only with the Rumble Pak accessory).

Let's Go Fishing!
There's a pond near Lake Hylia where you can go fishing. If you catch a big
fish, something good will happen. If you have the Rumble Pak accessory, you
will feel a tug on your line.
