Unlocking the sealed skills

There are certain weapon skills in the game that contain additional requirements to unlock compared to normal skills. They are displayed as purple on weapons, such as the Master Sword, until the unlock conditions are met. Successfully complete the indicated tasks to unlock these skills:

    Evil's Bane (Master Sword): Unlock all weapons in the game (Level 3 and below), then kill 10,000 enemies using the Master Sword.

    Exorcism (Master Sword): Unlock all weapons in the game (Level 4+ and below), then kill 15,000 enemies using the Master Sword.

    Legendary (all other weapons): Unlock both Evil's Bane and Exorcism for the Master Sword, then kill 10,000 enemies using any weapon which has this skill unlock requirement.

Apothecary mixtures

The Apothecary in the Bazaar contains many mixtures you can create using materials and rupees. These mixtures last for a single level and provide a variety of effects, normally to help with collecting drops or getting more XP and rupees. Obtaining these mixtures requires the Apothecary to be leveled up, which is done by collecting Gold Skulltula illustrations from throughout Legend and Adventure mode. You need a total of 90 Skulltulas to fully unlock the Apothecary. The following is the level the Apothecary is upgraded using the indicated number of Skulltulas:

    Apothecary Level 1: 0 Skulltulas (default)
    Apothecary Level 2: 3 Skulltulas
    Apothecary Level 3: 12 Skulltulas
    Apothecary Level 4: 45 Skulltulas
    Apothecary Level 5: 90 Skulltulas

Leveling up the Apothecary also increases the potency of your special potion that characters can drink mid-battle to get a boost of healing as well as some SP gauge. The potion will also change color (Red - Purple - Blue - Green - Yellow) to reflect its potency. Additionally, a collection of food drop potions will unlock at Apothecary Level 3, but they also require you to have obtained at least one companion fairy before they appear.

Hero difficulty and second Gold Skulltula in Legend and Free mode

Successfully complete all scenarios in Legend mode on any difficulty to unlock the Hero difficulty in Legend and Free mode and a new Gold Skulltula to find in all scenarios. The new Gold Skulltulas can only be found on the Hard or Hero difficulty. It also can only be found after defeating the first Gold Skulltula, and has a stricter requirement for appearing, such as being exclusive to specific characters or weapons. Note: You do not have to play as those characters or with those weapons throughout the whole scenario -- they just need to be in your party.

Cucco's Fury in Challenge mode

Successfully complete the "Survival Lv.4" challenge in Ganon's Fury with an "A" rank to unlock the Cucco's Fury special section in Challenge mode, which allows you to play Ganon's Fury challenges as a giant Cucco character.

Raising max fairies in My Fairy mode

When you first unlock the use of fairies in the game, you are only allowed to keep five fairies at one time. However, there is a way to raise the maximum amount. Each map in Adventure mode has a "final" stage with Ganon as the last enemy (killing him will trigger the credits). Each final stage completed will raise your maximum fairy count by one. There are nine full maps -- so it is possible to hold up to 14 fairies if all final stages are completed.

Reuse compass item card in Adventure mode

Normally all item cards in the Adventure mode maps are single use only, but this trick allows you to use the same compass card multiple times without needing to earn/buy another. When using the compass on a square that allows it, an area will sparkle as a hint, along with a message prompt stating you found a suspicious area. When the message prompt appears, do not press A to continue (otherwise the game will autosave and you will lose that item card). Instead, press the [Home] button and quit the game. When you restart the game and enter Adventure mode again, you will still have the same number of compass cards. You can use this trick to get multiple hints with the same card, making finding the hidden spots to use items much easier.
