Main appearance(s)

The Golden Gauntlets are a recurring item in The Legend of Zelda series.[1]

Location and Uses

Ocarina of Time

The Golden Gauntlets are located in the Shadow Barrier room of Ganon's Castle. They are considerably stronger than the Silver Gauntlets,[2] able to lift things that were previously impossible, such as giant, black stone pillars. One of these pillars obstructs the door to the Light Barrier room, forcing Link to use them to clear the path.

A second pillar appears outside of Ganon's Castle, in the region formerly housing the Great Fairy of Magic on the path to Hyrule Castle. When removed, the entrance to a Great Fairy's Fountain will be revealed, housing the Great Fairy of Courage. When summoned, she provides him with Enhanced Defense,[3] halving all damage taken.[4]
