The Tower of the Gods (Back Outside)

You must restore the power to repel evil to the Master Sword. Before you can do THAT, you must first find the Fire & Ice Arrows. Firstly, go to either Northern Triangle Isle or Shark Island to find one of Cyclos’ cyclones and learn the Ballad of Gales. If you haven’t already done so, look back on our previous pages to see where to find a Cyclos Cyclone).

Mother & Child Isles

After teleporting, Link and the King of Red Lions arrives inside the larger of the two islands. A pinkish stream of light emits from the raised spring of water nearby. When it focuses into a thin beam, something resembling a small girl holding a Great Fairy doll will appear.

She giggles and speaks of your ability to command the winds at such a young age, then introduces herself as the queen of the fairies! She has taken a liking to Link, and helps him by giving him the power to shoot fire and ice from his Hero’s Bow ( Fire Arrows and Ice Arrows , respectively).

She summons two fairies, one with red sparkles and another with blue ones, and the two enter Link painfully, bestowing the power in his bow. Fire Arrows shall melt even the coldest ice and Ice Arrows can extinguish the hottest fire (except lava…) and enemies

Both have double the power of normal arrows, but they also require a portion of your magic. When targeting with the Hero’s Bow, use the R button to change types. The queen tells you this and, as with the other fairies, gives you permission to use the fairies here to relieve your fatigue.

Before vanishing, she tells Link that she is just her type, the King of Red Lions looks at Link, and the queen vanishes. Use the fairies if needed, and proceed to the next section.

Set hundreds of years after the events of Ocarina of Time, The Wind Waker finds the hero Link in a sea scattered with 49 islands, which necessitates frequent sailing and naval combat. Link lives with his grandmother and younger sister Aryll on Outset Island, one of the few inhabited islands in the Great Sea. The people of the Great Sea pass down a legend of a prosperous kingdom with a hidden golden power. An evil man found and stole this power, using it to spread darkness until a young boy dressed in green sealed the evil with the Blade of Evil's Bane. The boy became known as the Hero of Time and passed into legend. One day the sealed evil began to return, but the Hero of Time did not reappear. The inhabitants of the Great Sea are unsure of the kingdom's fate, but it is clear that this legend is the story of Ocarina of Time where the Hero of Time, Link, fought Ganondorf. Can you emerge as the new Hero of Time?
