The Kokiri Sword is Link’s first sword. He gets it in Kokiri Forest during his training.
The Master Sword is the sword trusted upon only the bravest of heroes. It’s range and power surpasses that of the Kokiri Sword.
These two swords look very similar, but there is a major difference. The Biggoron’s Sword takes a lengthy trading sequence to get but unlike the Giant’sKnife it doesn’t snap on impact. They are so big and heavy that Link needs two hands to hold it, meaning that he can’t use a shield at the same time.
The Deku Shield is fragile, but cheap. Made of wood, it offers no protection from fire.
The Hylian Shield is a replica of the ones used in battle by the old Knights of Hyrule. Child Link is too small to hold it properly in combat, so it is better to use the Deku Shield when playing as him.
The Mirror Shield offers the same protection as the Hylian Shield, but reflects magic and light.
The Kokiri Tunic is the clothing of all Kokiri children. It offers protection from the weather, but not much else.
The Goron Tunic is more than a nice color. It gives Link complete protection from serious heat that could otherwise sap his life.
The Zora Tunic lets Link breath underwater when he is using the Iron Boots.
The Kokiri Boots are the standard footwear that Link normally wears.
These Iron Boots make Link walk slower, but if he tries to go into water with them on, he will sink to the bottom. With the Zora Tunic, he can then explore underwater areas.
The Hover Boots let Link walk over empty spaces for a limited time. This enables Link access places he couldn’t have otherwise jumped to. They have very little grip, though.
The Deku Seed Bag is used to keep your Deku Seeds in, for use in your Slingshot. The total capacity can be increased.
Like the Deku Seed Bag, this quiver is upgradable. It is used to keep your arrows in for use in your Fairy Bow.
The Bomb Bag can be used by either Child or Adult Link. It is used to keep bombs and Bombchus in. This too can have its total capacity upped.
This is the first item you get that helps you pick up heavy objects. Near the end of the game you get Silver and Golden Gauntlets. You can pick up almost anything with the Golden Gauntlets.
With the Silver Scale, Link can dive under water further than he previously could.
When Link has this, he can dive for a total of 10 seconds. This isn’t needed to complete the game.
