Use(s) Shrinking
Comparable Item(s) Minish Cap

The Gnat Hat is an item in Four Swords.[1]

Location and Uses

The Gnat Hat allows Link to instantly shrink down to the size of a tiny gnat and back again. There are some areas only insect sized beings can enter. The Gnat Hat functions similarly to Ezlo in The Minish Cap, where he aids in shrinking Link down to the size of the Minish. The Mage's Cap created by Ezlo, also in The Minish Cap, has a similar appearance.
