The Green Potion is a recurring Potion in the The Legend of Zelda series, used to replenish Link's Magic Meter, first appearing in A Link to the Past. In all of its appearances, it completely fills the Magic Meter regardless of how much Magic is needed. It is generally less expensive than the Red and Blue Potions.

In The Wind Waker, Green Potions can be bought for 10 Rupees at the Chu Jelly Juice Shop on Windfall Island, but are not available at first. Link must first supply Doc Bandam with 15 Green Chu Jellies.[6] Afterward, Link can get a free Green Potion if he brings Doc Bandam five more Green Chu Jellies.[7]

Twilight Princess

Although Green Potions does not appear in Twilight Princess, a Green Chu Jelly can be obtained from Green Chus in the Wii and HD versions. It has no effect when drunk. Green Chus only appear when a Blue and Yellow Chu merge in the Wii and HD versions of the game (they create a Purple Chu in the GameCube version), which can only occur in the Cave of Ordeals.
