Deepwood Shrine (TMC)
Producing gusts of air
Sucking things in (TMC)
Location and Uses
The Minish Cap
The Gust Jar can be found in the Deepwood Shrine. It can be used to suck in enemies and shoot them out, throw certain enemies off balance, absorb fire attacks, and remove fire scorching the ground. It can also pull hard-to-reach items towards Link, such as Mushrooms. The Gust Jar changes its color to indicate its power. Turning yellow indicates medium charge, while turning red indicates that it is at max power and air capacity.
The Gust Jar is also used for navigational purposes. While Minish-sized, Link can jump onto Lily Pads and use the Gust Jar to shoot bursts of Wind to the rear of the Lily Pad to cross bodies of water. The Gust Jar is effective against air-based enemies, such as Lakitus and Peahats. It can also be used to defeat Puffstools. It is the key item needed to defeat the Big Green Chuchu in the Deepwood Shrine and the Big Blue Chuchu in the Temple of Droplets. It can also be use to save Gregal from the ghost in the Palace of Winds.
The Gust Bellows can found in the Lanayru Mining Facility in a large, sand-filled warehouse patrolled by Froaks. It can create a gust of wind used to reveal objects underneath piles of sand or the remains of non-hardened magma. It can also be used to blow away small enemies, making them vulnerable for a short period of time, and to expose enemy's weak points, such as the Armos.
After completing the Lanayru Mining Facility, the Gust Bellows can be used in a sidequest for Mallara, Pipit's mother, who asks Link to blow away all of the dust infesting the interior of her home. Upon doing so, he will receive a red Rupee and 5 Gratitude Crystals as a reward.
Tri Force Heroes
Gust Jars in Tri Force Heroes can be used to propel other Links across gaps too wide to be thrown across, as well as blow items and enemies away. They are necessary for many puzzles involving teamwork, such as when a Link needs to propel another's Bomb across a gap to hit Switches or enemies. Gust Jars can also blow out fires, stun enemies, and push certain foes off of elevated platforms.
Gust Jars first appear in the Den of Flames, in which two of the three Links acquire them. They reappear in the Fire Temple, Sealed Gateway, Bomb Storage (two Gust Jars), Training Ground, The Lady's Lair, Infinity Dunes (two Gust Jars), Stone Corridors, Gibdo Mausoleum, Palace Noir, Lone Labyrinth, Deception Castle, and Sky Temple (one Gust Jar per Stage). They also appear in the Scorching Zone, Fortified Zone, Desert Zone and Baneful Zone of the Den of Trials, as well as the Coliseum's Volcano, Fortress and The Ruins arenas.
- The Gust Jar from The Minish Cap was inspired by a gourd that could suck up anything in the 16th century Chinese novel, Journey to the West.

- "You got the Gust Bellows! It is an ancient and mystical device capable of blowing an endless gust of wind." — N/A (Skyward Sword)
- "Ahh, Link. Welcome. So here's the thing, Link. My house is terribly dirty... Pipit is always telling me to do some dusting around here, but I just can't bring myself to do it. That's why I wanted to ask you if you wouldn't mind cleaning it for me. I'll even pay you, Link." — Mallara (Skyward Sword)
- "You will?! Great! I knew you wouldn't leave me to sit in this dusty house, Link. What's that? ... A broom? You know, I don't even remember where we keep the crazy thing... ...Or if we ever owned one... Most of the time I just wait for a good strong wind to come along and blow the dust away. So look, I don't really care how you get the job done--I just want you to blow it all away for me. So I'll just leave you to it, then!" — Mallara (Skyward Sword)
