Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
Glitch: Dragon Roost Island: Floating water jar:
Go to the temple. After the first room where you moved
the blocks, there will be two Boblikins. Kill them so they do
not break the jar. Then, get a water jar (a jar where water will
appear if broken). Do not break it. Grab it and carry it over
to a place where steam appears. Set it down over the steam. The
steam will shoot it up and the jar will start to do flips. It
will crash down onto the ground when the steam runs out, but will
not break. Wait, and the steam will come up to break it again.
Glitch: Dragon Roost Island: Broken Magtail:
In Dragon Roost Cavern, there is a room with several
water jars by the door and a Magtail (lava centipede) on an island.
Throw a water jar at it to make it curl up, but do not let it
fall in the lava. Next, throw a water jar onto the lava burst
to create a platform. Grab the curled Magtail and ride the platform
to the top. Throw the Magtail onto the wooden bridge and wait
for it to uncurl. If done correctly, it will crawl up the wall
and onto the ceiling. When it reaches the wall with the corner
outward, it will float segment-by-segment back up the wall, crawl
back down, and do it again. This may require a few attempts.
Glitch Forbidden Woods: Heavy or light weighters:
In the dungeon are small, needle-like enemies that
slow you down if they get on you. Try going to the room to the
right of the four-stemmed flower to find them. In that room, defeat
all enemies except for those needle-like creatures. Use your Deku
Leaf to blow a gust of wind at them. Do not move until they land.
Once they do so, the ones you blew will look at you. Go near the
same door that you went through, but do not exit. Move around
until they start jumping on you. Get enough of them on you until
you are walking at the same speed as the Iron Boots. Leave the
room and reenter it at least two to five times. Your speed should
have returned to normal. Keep doing this if you want to until
you get at least 50 to 100 of them, but be warned; either the
glitch may longer work or the game may freeze.
Glitch: Nintendo Gallery Island: Fly into cliff:
Go as low as possible towards the plants that attack
you. If you go far enough, then the game will force you to turn
around. Stay as close to the cliff as possible (it should be on
your right). Keep turning to the point where you are forced to
turn around. If done correctly, you will turn into the cliff.
You can see inside and fly into it somewhat, cannot go far.
Glitch: Hyrule Castle: Link disappears:
When you are in Hyrule Castle and on the bridge area
where the barrier knocks you back when you run into it, do a back
flip into it. Make sure you can see yourself from behind. If done
correctly, Link will disappear but you will still see his shadow.
Glitch: Outset Island: Flying pig:
When you finally get the boat, sail (or warp) to Outset
Island. Go to the house with the big pig nearby. Pick up the pig.
Note: You must have the Power Bracelets to do this. Go to a wall
and push against it sideways. It will look as if you are not even
holding the pig. Note: This effect does not last long, and you
will have to go away and go back to a wall.
Glitch: Windfall Island: Swimming pig:
When you play the Pig-Sitting game, when the game is
over, throw all of the pigs into the sea. Immediately start a
new game. The pig on the hill will have water rippling around
him, as if it is still swimming.
Glitch: Windfall Island: Sticky sign:
Note: The grappling hook is required for this trick.
Go near Zunari's shop. There should be a sign above the shop,
with a picture of a coffee cup on it (cafe sign). Grapple onto
the sign and you should stick and be able to move around slightly.
You can also stand on top of the sign if you grapple as high as
Glitch: Fly inside island:
At any Great Fairy island, get a Hylo Pear and take
control of a seagull. Fly into the Great Fairy hole and you will
see inside the island and still fly around. To get out, fly into
a wall, which you will go through.
Glitch: Frozen Link:
After defeating the plant Boss, have Link stand in
the middle of the flower, where a petal goes through his body.
This makes him unable to walk in the next scene. If this happens,
the game will not continue at all after defeating the Boss, and
must be reset.
Glitch: Invisible Link:
When you go to the city below the sea, go to the invisible
wall and run into it. Quickly turn the camera to Link's legs.
He will be invisible until he gets up.
Glitch: Bottomless pit:
When you defeat an enemy over a bottomless pit, look
down into the pit. You should be able to see what it dropped.
Use the telescope if you cannot see it.
Glitch: Big arrows:
This trick requires the Bow and Arrow, and any item
that gets a message similar to "It doesn't look like you
can use this item here." Set the arrow and the item to Y,
X, or Z. Go to Beedle's ship and stand on the end
of it, near the opening. Turn towards the point of the ship, look
down at your feet, and shoot many arrows at the ground. You will
not waste your supply of arrows. Keep shooting, then immediately
pull out the item after you pick up an arrow. Half of an arrow
should be visible, and it looks like it could be as big as Link.
If this did not happen, try again and pull out the item at different
Glitch: Disappearing smoke:
Before you freeze the Fire mountain, try looking at
it through your sail. You will need to position your camera for
this. When you look at it, the plumes of smoke coming from the
water will not be there.
Glitch: Grappling hook length:
When you use your grappling hook to dig up treasure
while in the boat in Hyrule, it goes down a long length but the
water is only knee deep.
