Legend of Zelda Wind Waker FAQs & Secrets for Gamecube

Infinite health, alternate music and costumes, and other secrets for Wind Waker


Infinite Health

This trick requires two bottles and a telescope. Go to Grandma's and fill one bottle with Elixir. Set the bottle of Elixir to Y. Press Start + Y, then put an empty bottle in Y, where Elixir was located. You will now have two bottles all together; one bottle full of Elixir, and one bottle half filled with Elixir. Set the full Elixir back to Y. Press Y + Start, then select the telescope on Y. You will drink the Elixir, but keep a whole bottle. This can be repeated as many times as needed. Additionally, set one bottle of Soup to Y. Press Y + Start and put an empty bottle in the slot that the Soup occupied. Press Y + Start and you will have one full bottle of Soup and a half a bottle.

Alternate Background Music

Enter "Zelda" as a name when you begin a new game to hear slightly different background music throughout the game. Alternatively, successfully complete the game. You can hear the slightly different background music, just the same if you entered "Zelda" as your name.

Understand The Hyrulian Language

Successfully complete the game. This allows you to understand the ancient language of Hyrule. When you talk to the gods such as Valoo and Jabun, you will understand what they are saying.

Alternate Costumes And DX Camera

Successfully complete the game and save at the end. Start another game with that saved game file. Ayril will be wearing the skull shirt from the ending, Link will wear his pajamas from the beginning all the way through the game, and the DX camera that takes color pictures will be in your inventory. Additionally, successfully complete the game once to get "invisible" clothes from Grandma for Link to put on over his PJ's. Some Outsetians will say different things. Successfully complete the game the first time. When asked if you want to make another save file, answer "Yes". When you play the new game, the Pictograph Box will be in your inventory. Successfully complete the game three times on all three slots. Note: You cannot copy one game three times. After you have three completed games, restart the game in the second slot. You will be able to choose the color of Link's clothes.

Ballad Of Gales

After saving your sister at Forsaken Fortress, go to C4 or F3. When you see a cyclone go near it. A red-frog like creature named Cyclos will appear. Shoot him with your arrows until he surrenders. He will grant you the power of the cyclones to teleport you to different areas of the ocean.

Easy Rupees

Go to island east of Outset Island (the Earth Temple one). On the beach, randomly do spinning attacks. Rupees will appear from the sand.

Grappling Hook Tip

If you are afraid to attack a monster at close range, use your Grappling Hook.

Light Arrows Tip

When you get Light Arrows, you can destroy any enemy that is not a Boss with one shot. Also, if you shoot it at an enemy with the Light Arrow, it will go through them and also hit any enemy directly behind it.

Sword Power-Up

When you have bombs, go back to where you first met Tetra. You will find a huge rock. Blow it up and go in. Get a fairy in the fountain and pour it on your grandmother. She will give you a Soup. It heals magic and HP and doubles your sword attack. If you run out, pick it up again at any time.

Trash In The Ocean

When you lower your hook from your sailboat near a glowing mark in the water, you might pick up trash, such as a boot, instead of a treasure chest.

Free Ride on Beedle Ships

You can get a free ride on the Beedle ships around the area that the ships patrol. Enter the shop, then leave, and stand still. After a short time, the ship will resume its usual sea path.

Bomb Beedle's Shop Ship

Go out and find any Shop Ship. Pull out a bomb and place it on the ship then get away from it. The blast will rock the boat and cause smoke to appear from it.


When traveling around the Great Sea at night, stop the boat and look into the sky. You should be able to see unusually bright stars that resemble constellations such as The Big Dipper and Orion's Belt.

Pig Attack

You can get attacked by pigs just as Link was attacked by the chickens in previous games in the Zelda series. Attack the pig a few times and it will turn red and attack. To make pigs angry and chase you, hit then with a boomerang, arrows, bombs, or your sword. Hit the pig(s) at least four to six times to make the sound of a slap. After that, the pig(s) will jump, flip, then flash red and begin to chase you. The small pigs take off one heart, and the giant pig on Offset Island will take four hearts.
