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.

  13. I checked for an island to put a pearl on and there was nothing.

    • You need to get all three pearls before the king of lions will mark the locations of the islands where you place pearls. If already have all the pearls, check your great sea chart.

    What does the rainbow firefly do?

  21. Does anybody know how to get the triforce chart from the ghost ship?

  22. If you mean Forsaken Fotress, here’s what you do. All you have to do is find your way up to the top of the main tower after you disable the searchlights. You now have a sword, so the Moblins won’t be able to put you in jail because your not going there without a fight, aren’t you?

  23. how do you save tetra from that prision

  24. Me and my brother have beaten this game, so I can help answer most questions. I don’t really know about the Tingle Tuner, though, I don’t have the necessary equipment required to make it function. But, did you know there’s a “Hand-Me-Down Knuckle Tuner”? There is! You have complete certain tasks in order to get it.

  25. where exactly do you get the firefly?
    in the hindden place under the waterfall or near the tree-guy?

    • Just look around the interior of forest heaven, mostly around clumps of grass, just be presistant and you should eventually catch it.

  26. I’ve already beate this game, but I still think it’s a classic fun to play and not to hard. My favorite part is the Nintendo gallery. For those of you who don’t know it’s near forest haven you know how when you get the deku leaf there’s one exit that you can glide to. otside you can glide to that small island with the guy with the hand bag. then you use a hoayo pear and fly the bird to the switch and the ledge and the hatch opens hop on in and give the guy a colored picture (sometimes he will say there good enough) then he will give you a membership if the pictos good. P.S. the pictos have to be in color

  27. I am letting everyone that i am changing my name to Lugia99.

  28. My friend told me that when using the Tingle Tuner when you go into the Boss Door and the fight starts that Tingle will tell you that he will be unable to help you because the boss is to strong,so the Tingle Tuner is now just taking up space on the screen and you should just replace it with any items needed to defeat the boss is you need to. I’m just wondering if he is right.

  29. leon from residentevil // February 21, 2010 at 9:00 pm // Reply

    to luigi 99, if you are still trying to get past the moblins,stay away from the rats so they can’t revile you

  30. tingle tingle kooloompa!

  31. I saw a gameboy/gamecube link cable at a Walmart in Colorado when I was on vacation, I tell my dad that I could use it for this game,he simply told me that that the Walmarts back home have them,no they don’t, I think that when I’m looking for a video game, I can find the accessories too. 😡

    • Luckily, when I bought the game again, my dad bought me a cable from gamestop. We still have it, and I’ve nearly beaten the game again!

  32. I have beaten the game and am on the second time I may answer questions some time!!!!

  33. To s.fox64 i did got in the barrel and still got caught and how do you get your characters sword at that prison place after tetra shoots you out of a cannon to the island.

    • leon from resident evil 4 // December 20, 2009 at 7:59 pm // Reply

      to lugifreak99,s.fox64 is not here,so i will awnser that,try not to move little as possible if a moblin is facing your derction,do not be imbaresed if it does not work the first time,if someone could get it the first time theyed be a genus,keep trying it youll get good some time,peace me out

  34. Dear Weerd Beerd the Pirate,
    if you didn’t know, you can also kill the Darknuts by L-targeting them,and waiting for the A-button to flash on the screen.It is also helpful to pick up his big sword after he drops it and slash him with it.

  35. The giant squids- hit their eyes with the boomerang or bow and arrow. If you want to, you can use the cannon

  36. Weerd Beerd the Pirate // November 10, 2009 at 8:00 pm // Reply

    To kill the Darknut Knights, you must cut the red ropes on his back. To do this, you must either sneak up on them from behind or use the sword attack that lets you jump over an enemy to get behind it. Once you have cut the ropes, you can kill it by attacking it with your sword.

  37. To complete the photographers tasks, the easiest way is to beat the game and then start over. At the end of the game when it asks if you want to start over but keep all of your progress say yes. Then when you start over you will still have your camera but now it will show your pictures in color

  38. To get all of the triforce shards you must first find Tingle. Tingle is located on windfall island. Go to where the hippi dude is dancing in front of the gravestone and there is a door right behind him. Tingle is in there inside a jail cell. There is a switch in that room behind the barrels to open the door. When you set Tingle free he will give you a map to his island. After you free him you will recieve a chart in the mail that you must pay for. This chart will show you where all of the triforce charts are located. When you get a triforce chart you must take it to Tingle to get deciphed. Thenn you can find all of the triforce pieces.

    to King Dodogondo:

    if s.fox64 knows more than me, why doesn’t he (or anyone) answer my trivia question?

  48. King Dodogondo // October 13, 2009 at 3:29 pm // Reply

    I can’t figure out how to complete the photographer’s first task, because I already finished the love letter thing, so the girl isn’t writing love letters anymore.
    to PLEASEHELPME!!!!!!:
    Even if it is true that s.fox64 knows more than the essence of the triforce, it is very rude to write that.
    To zelda:
    What do you mean by “the two places?”
