The Zora's Flippers,[1] also known simply as Flippers,[citation needed] are a recurring item in The Legend of Zelda series.

Location and Uses

A Link to the Past


In A Link to the Past, the Zora's Flippers can be bought from King Zora for 500 Rupees at the Zora's Waterfall. They allow Link to swim in deep water and to use Whirlpool Waterways to warp between bodies of water. In the Game Boy Advance version, Link is able to dive underwater while swimming. This can be used to avoid enemy attacks and certain traps.

Link's Awakening

In Link's Awakening, the Flippers are obtained in the Angler's Tunnel. They allow Link to dive underwater, which is required to enter the Catfish's Maw. By diving underwater, Link can avoid attacks from enemies while swimming.

Oracle of Seasons

In Oracle of Ages, the Zora's Flippers are found in Cheval's Tomb in the Yoll Graveyard. They are used to pass Cheval's tests in order to get the Cheval Rope. Later in the game, Link can find the Mermaid Suit, an upgrade to the Flippers. In Oracle of Seasons, the Zora's Flippers are received from the Master Diver at the Sunken City if Link retrieves the Master's Plaque for him with the help of Dimitri. With the Zora's Flippers, Link can dive for a short period of time. If the Zora Ring is worn, he can dive for an infinite length of time.

The Minish Cap

In The Minish Cap, the Flippers can be found in a sewer underneath the Royal Hyrule Library after returning all the missing books. With the flippers, Link is able to gain entrance to the Temple of Droplets at Lake Hylia.

A Link Between Worlds

Other Appearances

Ancient Stone Tablets

In Ancient Stone Tablets, the Zora's Flippers can be bought from King Zora for 300 Rupees. If the Hero of Light talks to King Zora during a raining period, he will sell the Flippers for 150 Rupees instead. They allow the hero to swim in deep water, which is required to enter Level 2.
