Upgrades aren't necessary, but help throughout your adventures should always be welcome. This is where Great Fairies come in. If you find their hidden spots, and answer a few things for them, they'll be happy to reward you with upgrades including Magic, Din's Fire, Farore's Wind, Nayru's Love, and a stronger defense.
Images with "Zelda Dimension" embeded on them are archived from our old site. We're still in the process of obtaining new pictures to replace them.
Great Fairy #1
Reward:Spinning Sword Attack & Magic Meter
How to find them:On the top of Death Mountain, near the crater, bomb a wall next to it and enter the cave. Play Zelda's Lullaby, the fairy will appear, and you will receive the Spin Attack along with a Magic Meter.
Great Fairy #2
How to find them:After getting the bomb bag, go to Hyrule Castle. Once you get to the opposite side of the gate, head right until you come to a dead end with a sign near it. Blow up the boulder blocking the cave and enter it. Play Zelda's Lullaby and the fairy will give you Din's Fire.
Great Fairy #3
How to find them:Enter Zora's Fountain and go to the right past Jabu-Jabu. You will reach a small patch of land in the Northeast part of the fountain. Blow up the boulder and enter the cave. Stand on the Triforce symbol and play Zelda's Lullaby. The fairy will then give you Farore's Wind.
Great Fairy #4
Location:Death Mountain Crater
How to find them:After completing the Fire Temple, use your Hookshot to get back to the entrance of Death Mountain Crater. Once past the broken bridge, you will see a huge boulder, use the Megaton Hammer on it and enter the cave. Play Zelda's Lullaby and the Great Fairy will double your magic meter.
Great Fairy #5
How to find them:When in the Desert Colossus area, look around for a crack in a wall between two palm trees. Place a bomb between then and you will open the entrance to the Fairy Fountain. Play Zelda's Lullaby again and you will receive Nayru's Love.
Great Fairy #6
How to find them:Once you have the Golden Gauntlets (from the Shadow room in Ganon's Castle), leave the castle and go to the same place that you got Din's Fire. Use your gauntlets to get the boulder out of the way and then pick up the black pillar type thing and throw it, to reveal the entrance to the Great Fairy's Fountain. Play Zelda's Lullaby and the fairy will give you a white outlining around your hearts, which is 2x the health you had before, and picks up your defenses.
