The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time / Master Quest

Glitches

Free Hearts

For this glitch you will need an empty bottle and a bottle with fish (or bugs) in it. Set both the empty bottle and bottle with fish to any direction (for an example we'll be using Down and Right). Now you need to backflip and, BEFORE you land, press Right and Down. Link should drink out of the bottle as if it were Lon Lon Milk and receive some hearts. This can be done at any time.

Infinite sword glitch

This glitch makes it so that links sword always registers as swinging, and will also not allow him to walk off edges, perfect for invisible walkways. To preform it, you need to take out your sword (works with any sword) and crouch in front of an interactive object. Don't use a sign that can be chopped or a person, but anything else should work, including bombs. Jab attack it and quickly press A. You want to interact while the sword is extended. If you do it correctly your sword should look like it's slightly glowing. DO NOT SWING. Swinging will cancel the glitch, and you will need to do it again. The swords hitbox will now register as swinging and permanently do damage. If you put the sword away, backflip and press B in midair.

Unlimited Bottles

Equip a bottle to any button. Swing the bottle at a bug/fairy/fish. Before you catch the bug/fairy/fish, equip an item you don't need to the button of the bottle. The item will be transformed into a bottle, and will never return to it's original state.

Warning: Do not replace items required for gameplay with a bottle, for you can not get it back. Replace items such as Masks, or the Trade Item after you complete the trade.

Unlimited Gold Skulltula Tokens

First, you must be young link and already have bombs, the boomerang, and the Song of Storms. Then go to hyrule castle, sneak past the guards, and go by the tree next to entrance of the castle(it's past the moat). Play the Song of Storms and a hole will open appear on the ground. Go into the hole and you'll see three bombable walls. One of these has a gold skulltula inside. You must kill the Gold Skulltula, then stand in front of the circle pad that transports you back up. Now, throw your Boomerang at the token and as soon as it hits the token step back on the pad(before the boomerang comes back to you). You will be transported back to the surface with a new Gold Skulltula token. The Gold Skulltula should reappear down in the hole if you did this right, so now you can easily get 100 tokens!

Easter Eggs

After you gain the Master Sword and become adult Link, go to the lost woods and take a left to the skull kid. He will attack you because you are now an adult, so attack back with regular sword attack. Do not use anything strong and dodge his attacks, if you die or use any strong attacks, he will backflip out of there. Once defeated, he will leave a very large red rupee behind, which is bigger in width and height then Link in his adulthood.

The Bald Fisherman

As a grown up when you catch the fisherman's hat. He will get mad at you, but from then on whenever you see him he will be bald, without his hat. This can be very hard, and is usually best if you stand about where the sign is, and then just keep trying to catch it

Get the golden scale as a kid!

When you are a child, go to the fishing pond and start fishing like normal. Keep fishing until you get a fish that’s big enough to earn a heart piece. Instead of going to the fishing owner, go into the middle of the pond. Face towards the owner in the water and hold Z + L (lock and shield). Don’t let go and swim and run to him. Once you reach him, talk to him without letting go of Z and L. He’ll give you the golden scale instead of a heart piece!

This allows you to do many things early on. Such as entering Zora’s Domain without having to play Zelda’s Lullaby. Or getting the heart piece from the Lakeside Laboratory (letting you have both the scale and heart piece.)

Infinite Money at Will

In the past, there is a beggar in the Hyrule Castle Market that asks you to sell him things with C. In the future, that same beggar is relocated to Kakariko Village, which is perfect for arguably the fastest non-Skulltulla money trick in the game.

Behind the old lady's potion shop in Kakariko lies a grotto, and within it, a fish. Bring a bunch of empty bottles to the grotto, then enter and re-enter the grotto until you're able to fill all of your bottles with fish. The beggar will buy each fish for 100 rupees, and you can repeat this process as many times as you wish until your money is maxed out. This obviously works best when you have the Giant's Wallet and are able to carry a maximum of 500 rupees at a time.

Sinking Lure

If you want to easily catch really big fish in the fishing pond without having to spend countless hours, then make sure you have caught the "lunker" fish as an adult and have obtained the gold scale. Now go to the fishing pond and you will find a new lure in one of three places: 1.) in the feeder creek, 2.) in the grass around the perimeter of the area, or 3.) on the log jutting out of the pond. Once you find this lure, try fishing with it. It is irresistible to fish, so catching a 20 pounder will be no problem. However, if you set any records by using this lure, the fish you have caught will be noted as illegal on the aquarium and at the record board in Link's house.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Cheats

Glitches

Use any item as an Ocarina

For speedruns or just fun you can use any item as an Ocarina without having an Ocarina! Catch a bug in a bottle. Then drop it and catch it again. Then without moving backflip and while in the air press the button the bug is in and then the button of the item you want to play. If done correctly the player should be playing the item as an Ocarina! This is extremely useful for speedruns or if you don't have an Ocarina.

Enemy/Boss Tips

Flipping Tektites

If you're having trouble with Tektites, try hitting the ground with the Megaton Hammer instead. If the shockwave connects, the Tektites will flip over on their backs, leaving them wide open to be killed.

Force The Poe Sisters To Reappear

Ganondorf's Weaknesses

While beating Ganondorf with your most powerful weapons is the obvious strategy, he is surprisingly vulnerable to more mundane items in your inventory. An empty bottle will reflect his projectiles during the first stage of the final battle. Ganon's final form is vulnerable to Deku Nuts, which comes in handy if you don't want to use your slower, more powerful weapons. Note that the bottle strategy even works on Phantom Ganon in the Forest Temple boss fight.

ReDead Invisibility

ReDeads detect you based on sound, not sight. If you equip the Iron Boots beforehand, however, they won't react at all. This is because the game registers the sound of Link's slower walking animation differently from that of his regular walking. As long as you don't pull out or put away a weapon, you'll be completely invisible to them.
