Flying Pots are recurring traps in The Legend of Zelda series.[citation needed]


Flying Pots appear to be simple, harmless Jars from a distance, but when approached, they rise into the air and hurl themselves at Link. Like other Jars, they may sometimes contain items inside, usually a Heart. Striking the Pots with the Sword or blocking them with the Shield are effective tactics to avoid damage. Link can also sometimes break them and collect their contents from a safe distance with the Hookshot or Boomerang.

In Link's Awakening, Facade uses Flying Pots to attack Link. In Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask, they can be distinguished by their size, as they are smaller than regular Jars.
