Catching a fish

At the beginning of the game, you must catch two fish. Go to the area where you see the cat, then begin fishing from the dock. Throw the line into the water and wait until the colored bobber sinks below the screen. This means a fish has bitten. Quickly lift the Wiimote up hold it there. If done correctly, a ‘Fish on’ message will appear. Continue holding the Wii-mote up until Link reels the fish in. Throw the second fish away, so the cat takes it.

Defeating Fyrus

Shoot the crystal on his head. When he is stunned, go around and pull on either of the chains that are attached to his feet to trip him. Go up to his head and start slashing until he gets back up. Repeat this until he is defeated. If you are running low on arrows or health there are pots around the room.

Defeating Ganondorf

When fighting Ganondorf, take out the fishing rod. He will drop his guard and watch the bobber. While his guard is down, take out your sword and hit him. Repeat this until he is defeated.

Defeating the Gerudo Temple Boss

An easy way to defeat this Boss is to use the spinner and go along the side of the sand pit he is in the middle of until you are directly behind him. Hit the ‘support bone’ which is the spine. To hit the bone you must use the spinner’s attack. Each time more skeletons will come up to block you from reaching the spine, but they do not regenerate. If you kill one, the next time you attack there will be a gap in the wall of skeletons which you can slip through and attack. After you have done this three or four times the sand drains and the head of the beast will still remain. Use the spinner to raise the platform. As you walk out, an intermission sequence of the head coming to life and knocking Link off the platform will play. You must use the spinner to climb the platform. After awhile the head will start shooting fireballs at you while you are climbing. The key here is to jump from the platform track to the track on the wall every time he tries to hit you with a fireball. The head will then get irritated and c ome in beside you, at which time you can jump and attack it with the spinner. When on the ground attack the sword that Zant puts in its head. Repeat this two more times to kill him and get a heart container.

Defeating heavily armored opponents

You first fight this heavily armored enemy as a mini-Boss in the Temple Of Time. You will then see him several times later as regular monsters. The strategy is the same each time. First, if you are having trouble timing the dodge to attack him multiple times, you can just wait and use the Mortal Draw ability when he gets close enough. Note: This does not work on the mini-Boss version, but works on every other one. He will lose one piece of armor every time you hit him with the Mortal Draw. When he throws his sword away he will begin wielding a smaller sword. Get close to him, roll behind him, and use the Rising attack (where you roll around him and rise up from the ground spinning). He will block the Rising Attack but will become vulnerable to regular attacks immediately afterwards. Do this three times and he will be defeated.

Defeating Twilight Monsters

An easy way to defeat Twilight Monsters is to kill the one that is not near you, then use the force field to kill the rest.

Bigger Wallet

The Adult Wallet can be obtained after defeating the giant Twilight Bug at Lake Hylia. Go to Hyrule Castle Town as a human, then go to the southeast alleyway and look for a door. Go inside and give Agatha any Golden Bug you have caught and she will give you an Adult Wallet (Big Wallet), capable of holding 600 Rupees. One Golden Bug is outside the south entrance of Castle Town, on the top of a large vine covered column. Blow up the rocks with a bomb and a Golden Ladybug will come out. It will resemble a point of light. Hit it with the boomerang and grab it with A. There are also two Golden Ants in Kakariko and Kakariko graveyard.

To get the Giant Wallet, give Agatha all 24 Golden Bugs.
