The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker

Once you put the three pearls on the goddess platforms, how do you beat the temple that comes out of the sea?

Games Guru: You have to go to the top of the Tower of the Gods to prove you are a hero. You have to return to the Tower three times, too, and beat the bosses. So you’ve got your work cut out for you.

Where do I get the rainbow-colored firefly far in the forest haven?

Games Guru: Remember the photographer on Windfall Island? You can get the firefly easily after you complete the photographer’s three photo challenges.

Where do I get the ability to use a twister to get into Mother and Child Island?

Games Guru: Traveling across the great sea, you have undoubtedly run into Cyclos, the god who bombards your ship with giant whirlpools. (You can always run into him around Mother and Child Island, Shark Island and the Northern Triangle.) Hit him with three arrows as he sucks you in, and he will give you the ability to warp your boat using cyclones.

How do you get to the Sky Spirit Valoo?

Games Guru: You do not really want to beat Valoo. As you explore the caverns of Dragon Roost Island, you will discover that Valoo is the victim of a fire-breathing creature called Gohma.

Go beneath the crater when you see Valoo. There you will find Gohma. Use your grappling hook to shoot a line on Valoo’s tail. Swing across. When you land, Valoo will knock rocks down on Gohma, breaking his armor. Once Gohma’s armor is gone, you can defeat him by targeting his eye.

I have found all the triforce shards and have entered Gannon’s tower. I found the portal that Gannon used to escape. Where are the light arrows?

Games Guru: When you beat the phantom Gannon in the Forsaken Fortress, a chest will appear. The light arrows are in that chest.

    yoshifan, you must get the ghost ship map first and it is on diomand stepp island. once you board the ghost ship,you will have to battle a summoning wizzrobe, two poes, and enimies the wizrobe summons. then you get the map

    May I remind you that I said, ” posted a Link’s Awakening question here because there’s no Link’s Awakening site on the whole entire internet where you don’t have to give away your e-mail adress. Anyway, I got brain damage because in the Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, all the members of Koholint Island want me to wake the wind fish when they all know that when I wake the wind fish, all the townsfolk will die!”

  11. To Debbie go 2 squares east of outset island you should see birds circling one spot in in the ocean sail there and a squid will appear kill it (its weakpoints are its eyes)

    a fairy will appear and double your magic

  19. hOW DO You get makar to follow you to the wind temple, I am in the waterfall with him

  20. why did they make zelda .

  21. to Cool Man: use the grappling hook from the ledge you would normally use. hold down R to stop swinging and while still holding down R push the control stick down to slide down the rope. let go of R, push and let go of L, push up and down with link on the control pad. keep trying this until you find the cave that makar is in.

    I need to know where the 6th triforce shard is i can’t find the beam of light.

  25. To Becca: sprry it’s been so long( you might be done with the part by now) but you burn the skull flag to the left of the entrence with fire arrows. use the girls harp to reflect the light on the PURPLE chus and then pick two of them up and switch the swicthes!

  26. How do you get to Makar in the waterfall? I need to play the song from the wind temple with him?

  27. king of the games // May 13, 2008 at 7:41 am // Reply

    to Cool Man:find a place where a beam of light shines and use the mirror,point it towards the smoke and it will vanish for a moment,also use the harp of the girl from the rito tribe.

  28. Cool Man // May 6, 2008 at 1:31 pm // Reply

    In the earth temple, after getting the mirror sheild and going down the stairs, I’m at the part where the room goes two ways. I’m stuck! How do I clear the blue smoke and what do I do after that in each room?

    What are the coordinates of the Ice Cavern? Where are the triforce shards? I can’t find them!!!!!

  30. where do u get the rainbow colored firefly?

  31. Hey heres something ammusing, go to 1 of the platforms and kill all the enimes, now play the song of passing , as soon as you can move you see the enimes that were on the platform fall through the ceiling!!!!

  32. Where is the iron boots?

  33. To all you people who are fighting the boss at the tower of the kings

    As soon as the battle starts go back the way you came in and stand by the door it is said that the hands cannot reach you (haven’t tried that yet)

    also if you L target the hands with your bow you can destroy them really quick

    then all you have to do is throw the bomb into his mouth three times

    I hope this helps


  34. To: ??????

    I don’t remember where it is but this might help at

    Somewhere around every square on the chart there is a fish if you throw red bait near it the fish (after he’s done) will put the island on your map it helps a lot so you know were you’ve been and where you haven’t

    Hope that helps


  35. To: Tator-tot

    To become as heavy as the Deku tree himself you need another upgrade.

    Go down to big hole were all the air is coming out.

    Go through one of the doors and the door will lock behind you (if it does not then try the other door) after you defeat all the enemy’s a chest will come.

    In it is the hook shot use it to get to the switch to open the door then go back to maker’s prison put on your heavy boots and use the hook shot it will cause the tree thing to fall down and break if you are in front of it you will loss some heart so do this from an angle. oh I almost forgot the hook shoot will help you defeat the boss too

    Hope that helps

    to Gamer1120 :when the head is in the floor get close to it’s mouth and use the bombs.

  45. I am in the Tower of the Gods and I am trying to beat the boss. I have shot down his hands with my arrows and they are now gone. And I have shot down his head to where it is now lying on the floor. What do I do after that? Because when his head’s lying on the floor, after a little while it starts floating againand he gets one of his hands back. PLEASE HELP!!! 🙂

  46. Hey guys, did you know that when you sneak up on Moblins, and attack them, that they jump up and down on their spears or hold one foot up? Its very funny and you can use this advantage to dish out more damage!!!

  47. I am at the part where you have to find the guy playing that instument. I know he is on the Island with the Deku tree and the music seems to be coming from inside the waterfall but I cant find how to get inside the waterfall? I’ve tried everything please help.
