The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap

Please tell me how to talk to the masks in the mayor’s house to be able to return the last book to the library. Thanks so much.

Games Guru: You don’t need to talk to the masks. Just run into the wall under each of the masks to make them fall.

Could you tell me where all the wall kingstone fusions are? Also, how do I get to the minish in the library?

Games Guru: That would be a very large answer, as there are more than 40 kinstones here.

How do you beat the Fortress of Wind?

Games Guru: It’s a big place. Where exactly are you in it?

How do you get past the third dungeon?

Games Guru: Please write back and let me know the name of the area you wish to get through. Do you mean the Fortress of Winds?

Are there any secret codes for this game?

Games Guru: There are no secret codes for this game. There are, however, a number of tricks that can help you along through the game. Here are two of my favorites:

An endless supply of rupees awaits just outside of Link’s house. Once you have the mole mitts, take Link home and have him dig to the left of his front door. You will find 20 rupees. In fact, there will always be 20 rupees in that spot, so just come back any time you need some cash. Better yet, go in the house and come back out, and 20 more rupees will be waiting every time you step out that door.

Want a double shot of life just when you need it most? You can catch two fairies in one empty bottle if you go to the tree with the door in South Hyrule Field. Enter the tree and go to the room with the fairies, stand in the center of that room and wait for the fairies to come within range. You need to catch both fairies with one swing of the bottle, so make sure to wait until two fairies are flying around you at the same time, then swing the bottle.

  5. dear game guru,

    how do you get past the boss in palace of winds

    • You have to watch the monster’s eyes and which are open, use the glowing tiles to make copies of yourself in the formation of the eyes, and slash away. This is WAY easier said than done.

    how do i find librari the minish in the library!?

    • Zelda Finatic, to get to Librari in the Library, you have to return 3 books to his house’s (book’s) shelf. After that you only need to climb up each of those book’s spines to get to his house!

  12. My friend’s little brother is so good at this game, he can beat this game in about 3 hours.

    the element get music is one of my favorite zelda fanfares, after “you’re the hero of legend” (TP), “drawing the master sword (multiple), “gem get” (OofT), “medallion get” (OofT), “fused shadow/mirror shard get” (TP) and “medal get, crystal get, you-just-killed-ganon” (aLtotheP)

  19. I’ve beaten this game six times and then traded it in for A Link to the Past. I’m glad I did the but also sad. I love this game

    To get past the statues in castor wilds, shoot them in the eye with the bow and arrow. They will try to chase you, but by doing that, letting you gain entry to the place they were guarding.

  30. how do u get past the mount crenel to get to the fortrest of fire

  31. I know a lot about this game, so ask me if you have any questions

  32. To nintendan: fuse stones with a goron and big goron will appear. beat the game and then go to him, and he should improve your shield.

  33. How do you beat Vatti? (All forms)

  34. Where do you get mirror shield?

  35. um the catepillar thing is the miniboss. you dont shoot the eye. you hit the nose and then swing back and hit its exposed tail.

  36. i just started the game and i cant get past that caterpillar thing.

  37. If you mean the ones with the really ugly eyes, shoot them in the eye. They will come to life and you must fight them. The only way to damage them is to shoot them in the eye, so just do it about four times and it should die. Not very hard.

    If you mean the ones in the south, you have to fuse Kinstones with all of them, and the rock blocking your way will disentigrate. The orange Kinstones are in chests in variopus dungeons in the Wilds.

    Hope that helps.

  38. i think link is awsome.

  39. how do i get past the huge statues in castor winds?
