Top 5 Items in the Legend of Zelda
The Legend of Zelda series is full of powerful things. We’ve set apart the different swords, bows, and arrows, as well as bombs, and boomerangs. We could build a top 20 item list with them. There are other rare and not so recurrent items we will discuss here. They are obtained in certain games, and will give you a significant advantage to beat your enemies. Some are a must to go through some quests or defeat a particular enemy. Let’s explore our selection of the top 5 items in the Legend of Zelda.
- Zora Mask
The Zora Mask is handy when you have to battle in the ocean. Not only does Link get Zora’s face, but he also acquires some incredible powers. Fast swimming and unmatched abilities to fight underwater are just some of the features. Link will also get the capacity to play a screaming undersea guitar. The fins, melee, and ranged weapon are as useful. In the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time you’ll be rewarded with Zora’s Mask right after you complete the Happy Mask side quest. However, it is not very useful here. You will find it useful at the Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. You cannot continue to the Great Bay Temple without it, and it is the only way to get in the Pirates’ Fortress and the Pinnacle Rock. You can obtain it as the third transformation mask of Link while he travels in Termina.
- Din’s Fire
Use Din’s Fire to set fire to everything around you. The incredible destruction power of Din’s Fire is perfect to tear down the entire place. You can also set light to all torches in a blink or kill as many enemies around you. You will need 6 units of magic to use it, and Link will not be damaged while he casts this spell. In The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time you will get Din’s Fire from the Great Fairy of Magic at a fountain outside Hyrule Castle in the Dead End. The Great Fairy of Magic will only give up Din’s Fire to Child Link. You can use it anytime after you get it. Beware of using it when Keese is around, because it will turn him into Fire Keese. You will need it to complete the game when you try to open the door of the Shadow Temple. So, if you’ll need it anyway, it is a good thing to use it.
- Roc’s Cape
Roc’s Cape will let you jump really high; it will seem you are flying. Long jumps are an excellent advantage on battles. You will get when you upgrade the Roc’s Feather. In the Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons you can find it at the Explorer’s Crypt. On the Legend of Zelda: Four Swords, get the Roc’s Cape throughout Hyrule. It will appear randomly inside item podiums. In the Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap, get the Roc’s Cape to the Palace of Winds. On this last game, it is a must to get a Piece of Heart, where you will need a long jump.
- Bug Net
The Bug Net is not a popular weapon, but it is easy to get, and it’ll give you very cool abilities besides catching fairies and bugs. You can reflect energy beams in The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. That is enough to have it on this list. Reflecting energy beams is one of the most wanted powers from the Master Sword, and the innocent Bug Net can do it. You can get the Bug Net from a kid. The Bug-Catching Kid is found at the center of the Kakariko Village. When you are fighting Agahnim, you can deflect his magical attacks. In the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, you’ll find it for 50 Rupees at the Beedle’s Air Shop. You can use the Bug Net to fight Demise and Ganondorf, reflecting projectiles and magical attacks. In the Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, the Bee Guy will give it to Link. It is useful to defeat Buzz Blobs because it does not conduct electricity.
- Fierce Deity’s Mask
The ultimate transformation for Link in The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is the Fierce Deity’s Mask. It can transform Link into the avatar of the mighty God. Fierce Deity can shoot Sword Beams. The shortcoming is that it can be used during boss battles only. Fierce Deity is taller than the standard Link, which is an advantage for boss fights. In Majora’s Mask 3D you can also use it when you are fishing in ponds. You can get the Fierce Deity’s Mask trading the 20 non-transformation masks, just before the Majora battle. If you don’t get it, you can still defeat him. However, it is much easier if you get the mask.
