Increasing Link's movement speed
Carrots are recurring objects in The Legend of Zelda series.
Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask
In Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask, a Carrot meter appears while riding Epona. When pressing the A Button, a Carrot is used, giving Epona a speed boost. The meter consists of six Carrots, which replenish after a short period of time. If the meter is empty, Link cannot make Epona go any faster until replenished.
Four Swords Adventures
In Four Swords Adventures, Carrots can be collected to increase the speed of the Links' Horses. Obtaining a Carrot without a Horse will instantly grant the Links a Horse. Carrots only appear in The Field stage and the Tingle's Tower minigame, Bucking Broncos.
Breath of the Wild
In Breath of the Wild, Carrots appear in two different varieties, Swift Carrots and Endura Carrots. Uncooked Swift Carrots restore half of a heart each. When cooked into a dish, they add a "Hasty" bonus which temporarily increases Link's movement speed. Uncooked Endura Carrots restore two hearts each and when cooked into a dish, grant Link extra maximum Stamina. Swift Carrots look like ordinary orange Carrots, while Endura Carrots are bifurcated with a lighter orange hue.
