Zelda 3:
Equipment
Sword
It's the most important weapon Link will get. Forged from aged cold steel and sweat, each Hyrulian Sword is handcrafted by expert swordsmiths. A Smithy of particular merit lies to the east of Karariko Village. The master swordsmiths who work there will be eager to help Link if he helps them first.
  • Fighters Sword: Link's Uncle will give him the family-owned Fighter's Sword when he encounters him in Hyrule Castle. This Sword is lightweight and short.
  • Master Sword: There is deep legend surrounding the powerful Master Sword. It is said that only the true Hero will be able to retrieve it from the Lost Woods.
  • Tempered Sword: The Swordsmiths will glady temper the Master Sword for a paltry sum. Link will have done them a huge favor by finding the one lost in the Dark World.
  • Golden Sword: The Fat Faerie, who resides within Dark Pyramid, is the only one who can give Link the Golden Sword. Link should toss the Tempered Sword into her pond. The Fat Faerie will ask Link if he dropped the sword. Remember, always respond to faeries with a truthful answer.
Shield
Cast from a rare alloy, every Hyrulian Shield is very strong and also extremely light. A young boy like Link can easily wield even the heaviest Shield. It is rumored that the Swordsmiths also make Shields. Unfortunately, the merchants who also sell Shields are not at liberty to disclose and information about their origin or who they obtain them from. The Hyrulian people take it for granted that Shields will always be available.
  • Fighters Shield: Link's Uncle will hand over the family-owned Fighter's Shield at the same time he gives him the Sword.
  • Red Shield: The Red Shield can be purchased from a merchant for the sum of 500 Rupees. Link knows it's worth more. It can also be gained by tossing your regular shield into a fairy pond, such as the one called the Waterfall of Wishing. This place can be found in the river, by the witches hut, after you buy the flippers.
  • Mirror Shield: Link will be able to reflect beams with this Shield. It's thought that the Mirror Shield has Magic Power. Find it in Turtle Rock.
Armor
Link's main piece of Clothing is a green Jerkin. Almost every young boy in Hyrule wears some type of Jerkin. The material is very light, yet it retains a unique insulating quality. It's perfect for all weather conditions. Link will always wear it, but later in his quest he will want to improve his chances of survival by wearing Blue or Red Mail over the Jerkin. A floppy Cap is also part of Link's garb.
  • Green Jerkin: This Clothing is standard issue for a Hyrulian boy of Link's age. It provides little battle protection.
  • Blue Mail: Locked in a Big Chest in Ice Island dungeon, the Blue Mail decreases the amount of battle damage.
  • Red Mail: The Red Mail is the ultimate in Hyrulian battle protection. It's fashionable, too. Link will be all the rage.
Pegasus Boots
The Pegasus Shoes are a treasure which was passed down by the family of the wise men. Sahasrahla believes in Link and gives the Pegasus Shoe to him when he shows him the Pendant of Courage. Activate the power of the Pegasus Shoes by holding down the A Button for one second. Release the button when Link sprints off. Great distances can be travled in a short period of time by using the Shoes.

Use the Dash Attack to mow down an entire row of bushes or grass. If Link uncovers a Heart or Rupees, he'll need to backtrack through the row in order to pick them up.

Link should try crashing into everything including trees, rocks, and statues. There are numerous cave entrances to be uncovered by Dashing into rocks.

Power Glove
Gloves: When Link begins his adventure, he has the ability to pull up bushes, lift vases and pick up skulls. His lifting power will be increased tremendously if he wears the Power Glove or the Titan's Mitt. From the size of some of the stones in the land of Hyrule, Link knows that it will be necessary to find each of these special items. There are paths and entrances that are blocked by stones.
  • Power Glove: The Power Glove can be found inside of a Big Chest in the Desert Palace. It gives a little more lifting power.
Titan's Mitt
Gloves: When Link begins his adventure, he has the ability to pull up bushes, lift vases and pick up skulls. His lifting power will be increased tremendously if he wears the Power Glove or the Titan's Mitt. From the size of some of the stones in the land of Hyrule, Link knows that it will be necessary to find each of these special items. There are paths and entrances that are blocked by stones.
  • Ages ago, a band of thieves stole the legendary Titan's Mitt and hid it, thinking no one could find it in the Gargoyle's Domain.
Zora's Flippers
First of all, Link needs to have the Power Gloves in order to travel to Zora's Falls. Once Link arrives there, Zora will appear to him and ask him what he wants. If Link has 500 Rupees to spare, he should ask for the Flippers. After he recieves the flippers, Link will be able to swim in even the deepest of water. Buy them as soon as possible.
Moon Pearl
Link will experience the effects of the Dark World when he first enters that realm. The Dark World has the power to turn anyone into what their true heart reflects.

The Moon Pearl must be in Link's possession to neutralize the effect. The Big Chest in the Tower of Hera holds the much-sought-after Moon Pearl.
