The Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap: Secrets

Lost Legends and Spinoffs

The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap- 2005 GBA
The King of Hyrule is sending Link on an incredible quest that will take him to places he's never imagined. Using the power of a special hat called the Minish Cap, Link can shrink and explore the magical world of the Minish -- tiny people who live just beneath his feet!

Smith's Sword
This is your starting weapon, you are given it at the start of your quest by the king of Hyrule. It holds little power but it does its job well. It is however, soon replaced.
Small Shield
This is also given to you at the start of your quest. Princess Zelda will hand it to you after she wins it in the town festival, this shield serves little purpose in the game (apart from for talking to business scrubs and defeating a few enemies) and you will probably replace it as soon as you get a new inventory.
Gust Jar
This is the 'special' item that you receive in Deepwood shrine. It can be quite useful for killing certain enemies, and in some cases moving you around via lily pad or mushroom. The gust jar sucks in air, the longer you hold the button, the faster the air goes, it sucks in pots etc. and then fires them out.
The boomerang can be bought from Stockwell's shop for 300 rupees. You must have first bought the rupee purse from him first though. The boomerang temporarily paralyzes an enemy (allowing you to attack it without the risk of being injured) and then returns to you. The boomerang is useful for killing some enemies that are invincible to any other means of attack.
As the name suggests, these are bombs. Drop them on the floor and wait a few seconds, and they blow up. They are very useful for blowing up walls and in some cases, killing enemies.
Cane of Pacci
This is the 'special' item you obtain in the cave of flames, on Mt.Crenel. It can be used to turn things over (such as pots which allow you to shrink to minish size) and move energy into holes. Putting energy into holes allows you to jump a bit higher. When you get this item, it seems quite good, but it will soon be replaced by better inventory.
White Sword
You obtain the white sword from Melari on Mt.Crenel after completing the cave of flames and getting the fire element. It replaces the Smith's Sword in your inventory and is significantly more powerful. After getting an element, the white sword can be infused with its power. This means you can split Link up into up to 3 people (allowing you to complete some game tasks) before you lose this sword.
Pegsus Boots
You get this item from the shoe seller in Hyrule after the small side quest. It allows you to run quickly and cross swamps that you usually couldn't get past. The Pegasus boots are required to get the bow, and to enter wind ruins. It also allows you to learn the 'dash attackk' sword technique.
This quite simply, is a bow. Collect it from a chest in the north-west region of Castor Wilds. You can fire arrows to kill enemies with it, although I didn't use it much in the game (until later). It is however, the only way of killing the Eyegore statues.
Mole Mitts
This is the 'special' item obtained in the wind ruins. The only real purpose it serves is to collect secrets (such as rupees, mysterious seashells and kinstone pieces). You can open the weird looking doors as well, but they can't be used for attacking or defending.
Ocarina of Wind
You will get this after finishing the wind ruins. It serves only one, but a very useful purpose. Using the wind crests that you unveil through the game, you can travel between them quickly.
Flame Lantern
The flame lantern is the 'special' item obtained in the temple of droplets. It can be used to light up dark rooms, light candles and melt blocks of solid ice. It cannot be used as a weapon (you can set flowers on fire though).
Magical Boomerang
To get the magical boomerang, you must fuse kinstones with all four of the tingles (see a walkthrough guide to find them) to open up for trees in north Hyrule field. Enter the trees, collect the treasure and stand on the switches. When all of the switches have been stood on, a ladder will appear in the centre of the field, and you can go down and open the chest containing the magical boomerang. The only difference between this and the standard boomerang, is that it can be controlled (to an extent) when you throw it.
Remote Bombs
To get remote bombs, fuse kinstones with the elder in the minish village, then return to the guy you originally got the bombs from and with no extra cost, he will upgrade you to remote bombs. If you wish to switch back to standard bombs speak to him again. Remote bombs are set by pressing the button, then they explode when you press the button again.
Light Arrows
To obtain this, you must have first fused kinstones with the guy in the house on the left side of Hyrule, then entered the portal. Go to the top floor and use the gust jar to suck away the ghost around the old man. Later in the game, if you saved the old man, he will give you the light arrows, if not, then you will never be able to get them again. The light arrows are much more powerful than standard ones, and can be charged up before you fire them.
Roc's Cape
This is the 'special' item obtained in the palace of winds. It allows you to jump, which means you can obtain some secret items and learn the 'down thrust' sword technique.
Four Sword
This is the white sword (it's been renamed) with all four elements infused into it. It is a little more powerful and when you do the spin attack, a silvery thingy is released (it apparently cures people of curses). The most powerful sword.
Mirror Shield
You must first finish the game before you can get this. Go to the veil falls and speak to Biggoron the goron. He will eat your shield! Come back later and he will give you the mirror shield in return (Note that you will lose your shield for this period of time).
Kinstone Bag
The kinstone bag (collected from the guy who is giving them out for free at the start of the game). The kinstone back contains....shock horror....Kinstones! There are nine normal kinstones, 3 red, 3 blue and 3 green. It is also possible to get 8 gold kinstones, but they are used for puzzles in the game.
Grip Ring
Bought from the business scrub on Mt.Crenel for 40 rupees. It allows you to climb walls which have the climbing things on (Only found on Mt.Crenel).
Power Bracelets
When you are minish size, you can enter the cave on the fountain. Defeat enemies in this small dungeon and you can open the chest containing the power bracelets. They allow you to push boxes etc. when you are small.
After returning all of the books to the library, speak the the elder on the bookshelf to be thrown into another mini dungeon. Defeat any enemies etc. and open the chest containing the flippers. They allow you to swim.
There are 4 bottles you can get in the game. Bottles can be used to store various things to help you with your quest. It is required you have one bottle, but it is optional to get the others.
Bottle 1
In the Trilby highlands, there is a ladder just south of where you enter, go down the ladder and use a bomb on the wall on the right. In the new room is a business scrub who will sell you a bottle for 20 rupees.
Bottle 2:
You'll notice eventually that there is a bottle behind the counter in Stockwell's shop. I won't go into to detail, but basically, you must shrink yourself and enter in the chimney (I think), then grow back to normal and take the bottle. One problem, he tells you it is full of dog food, so you must take it his house in Lake Hylia and feed his dog. After this, the bottle is yours to keep!
Bottle 3
Fuse kinstones with your grandfather and a chest will appear in Lon Lon Ranch. It contains bottle number 3.
Bottle 4
You've probably noticed the big guy hitting a wall in Lon Lon Ranch. Well, to get bottle 4, you must send other gorons to help him. I will not go into detail here, but basically you have to fuse kinstone's with 'mysterious walls' that are scattered across the world. Eventually, when you have done so five times, you get the last bottle. This side quest cannot be completed until quite late in the game.

Then walk north towards the stairs and climb up the vine there. Walk to the backside of the hotel and enter (by the small flowers). Inside you'll find a Piece of Heart.
When you can play the game inside the house with the purple ghost (after the 3rd dungeon, I believe), go there and play the game. Kill all the monsters you have to fight to win a Piece of Heart.
