The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

Glitches

Change color of Agahnim's skin/clothes

During the Light World fight with Agahnim, he turns into a shadow, and moves around like that. If you bring up the map exactly when he is turning from shadow to real form, his colors will be really distorted, or he will look transparent, just like the 2 fake ones during the second fight. If you keep doing it, his colors will keep changing.

Holding Nothing

On any part of the Light World Death Mountain that is on top of the mountain (level with the Tower of Hera, or Mountain Tower) freeze one of the tekktites (those blue or red spidery jumping things) with the ice rod (the Ether Medallion will just kill it) and pick it up using the power glove. not jump off the edge of the mountain that leads to the ground level. The tekktie will suddenly disappear and when you land on the ground you will be holding thin air and you will walk at normal speed with nothing weighing you down. The only problem is, you can't use any items, including your sword, shield or pegasus boots, and you cant throw away the air that you're holding. The only way you can stop this is by entering a cave or by getting hurt. you can also pick up a green stone and do the same thing, but I can't guarantee it will work. Sometimes you may have to repeat the trick several times in order for the item you're holding to disappear. You can also do this in the Dark World Death Mountain where you enter the portal near Spectacle Rock. Pick up a flower, and jump off the cliff. In the Dark World it doesn't work that much, but if you try again it will work.

Swimming on Land

It is indeed possible to swim anywhere in Hyrule. Call the flute bird and go to warp point 4 (your house). Go down one screen and kill all the monsters. Face the pool of water to your left, and call the flute again. Immidiately pegasus boot into the water. After you automatically stop at the water's edge, the flute bird will pick you up. Cancel the flight and when it sets you down you will still be on land --- but swimming! You can freely visit anywhere in Hyrule, but if you get injured or jump off a ledge you lose this ability. You also cannot access any items. Have fun!

Walk through walls

In most areas of the game this glitch is possible. It allows Link to walk through walls, but in some areas the game, will glitch, and Link will be "frozen", or, unable to move in any direction at all. All you need are the Pegasus Boots and the Magic Mirror. One example is in the East Palace. Once you enter, pick up the pot and throw it. Then step on the switch. The door in front of Link should open. Go through the door, step on the switch, and dash threw the enemies through the next door. Then attempt to jump off the ledge to the left. But as Link's jumping off, before he's in mid-air and as soon as he makes the "hup" sound when leaping off, use the Magic Mirror to make Link appear back at the dungeon's entrance. Then repeat the first two steps untill you're back in the room with the ledge. If you've done the glitch correctly so far, when you dash into the statue on the right, Link should turn invisible when he lands back on the ground. This make take a few tries. NOTE: When Link attempts to walk out of the walls, he will jump back on to normal ground again and the glitch will have to be redone.

Walking on Water

Call up the Flute Duck and fly to point 7 on the map, which is the light world watergate. go up one screen to the place where the water portal is. now go up to the top right corner of the screen in the shallow water. call the flute duck again but this time before it comes aim a correctly timed pegasus charge at your left side. if you time it right, the duck will pick you up when your sword is sticking out while you're dashing. When you enter the map screen, press B to cancel and the duck will put you back down on the ground. Here you will start walking funny and when you touch a solid surface, you will bounce off of it. now go up to the right-most green totem statue so you're facing up. walk into it and bounce off into the deep water. (if you just go directly into the water the trick won't work) Swim towards the water portal and get transported to that place east of the graveyard. If done correctly, you should be standing on the water instead of swimming. Here you can walk around any screen you like and still be walking, but do NOT jump onto one of those green platforms or the trick will stop immediately. And also, it is okay to use the Pegasus Boots, but if you crash into something, you will start swimming again. and if you call up the Flute Duck and press B to cancel the map selection, you'll be swimming.

Exploding head

In the light world, go to where you recieved the flute. Go down one screen. To the right where there are two trees. Stand next to the top tree and use the Ether medalion. Walk away from the tree and ram into it with Pegasus Boots and a head like Blind in her human-ish form will fall down and explode as if it were a bomb.

Hopping Hare

In the Light World, go south of Link's house into the swamp. There you will find a blue rabbit jumping up and down in the grass. When it jumps up, cut up the grass below it, then when it comes down, go over to it and touch it. It will give a random item, such as 1 to 300 rupees, or a fairy. This can only be done before you reach the Dark World for the first time.

Secrets

Easy Money

After you've gotten the Power gloves go to the desert area in the game. Once there find the man thats sitting next to his sign. Go a little bit south and to the left where you should find two large rocks. Lift up the rock below the top one and a secret area will be opened. Once inside you'll notice a thief and 10 different pots that each hold a blue rupee, break open each pot and take all the money. You'll be able to do this as much as you please because the blue rupees come back every time you leave and reenter the area. It should only take a few minutes to get the maximum amount of rupees.

Go up to the Mysterious pond and it will ask you to throw something in. Scroll through your items until you come across an empty bottle, then throw it in the water. The Fairy will come out and ask you if you droped it. Answer yes and the fairy will say she likes such an honest person and will fill your bottle with green potion. You can do this as many times as you want.
