Blue Potions,(OoT | MM | TWW | TMC | TP | ALBW)[1] also known as Medicines of Life and Magic,(ALttP)[1] are recurring Potions in The Legend of Zelda series, commonly used to instantly restore both Link's health and Magic. Typically, it is known as a "cure-all" Potion that is effective in recovering many to all of Link's Hearts in addition to restoring his Magic when present in the game.[2] Furthermore, the Potion has been noted to be easy for Link to consume.[3]

Location and Uses

Inception and Original Usage

Prior to the Potions, the earlier games in the series had introduced Water of Life. In The Legend of Zelda, the blue Water of Life could purchased by various Old Women after receiving the Letter from an Old Man in a cave in northeast Hyrule, and then showing it to them. Once the Letter is delivered, the blue and red Water of Life will become available for Link to purchase, costing 40 and 68 Rupees, respectively. However, unlike later versions of the Blue Potion that could replenish both Magic and health, it was merely a one time use health Potion, due to Magic not existing in the game. Potions debuted in A Link to the Past, and was also the first game where the Blue Potion was used to restore both health and Magic. Just like Red and Green Potions, Link needs an empty Bottle to store the Potion.

In Majora's Mask, Link can either purchase a Bottle of Blue Potion from the Ikana Canyon Business Scrub for 100 Rupees, or give a Magic Mushroom to Kotake at the Magic Hags' Potion Shop, who will then use it to create Blue Potions and sell them for 60 Rupees each. They also cure the Jinx status that Blue Bubbles inflict.

In The Wind Waker, there are two ways to obtain the Blue Potion. The first is to collect four Boko Baba Seeds from defeating Boko Babas and then giving them to Hollo, who will mix a Blue Potion for Link. The second way is to collect 15 Blue Chu Jellies from Blue ChuChus and trade them to Doc Bandam on Windfall Island. He will use them to make a Blue Potion and give Link the first sample for free, and from then on will have it for sale at 60 Rupees.

As a Health Restorer Only

Blue Potions in The Minish Cap restore up to eight hearts only.

In Twilight Princess, Blue Potions can be obtained by defeating a Blue Chuchu and scooping its Chu Jelly into an empty Bottle. The blue jelly of a Blue Chuchu acts like a Red Potion, restoring all hearts. Blue Potions can also be bought from the Goron's son in Kakariko Village, the shop in the City in the Sky, or from Malo Mart in Hyrule Castle. Blue Potions only restores hearts, as the Magic Meter does not appear in Twilight Prncess.

In A Link Between Worlds, the Blue Potion completely restores all of Link's hearts, making it the most powerful health-restoring Potion in the game. It can be bought from the Witch's House for 200 Rupees and ten Monster Tails.

Other Blue Potions

Skyward Sword features a different type of Blue Potion, the Air Potion, which reduces the rate at which Link's Oxygen Gauge depletes.
