Fire Temple (OoT)
Location and Uses
Ocarina of Time
The Megaton Hammer is found in the Fire Temple in Ocarina of Time. It is used to break certain Boulders and smash in rusted Switches. It can also be used to smash blocks for access to new areas and to open Secret Grottoes. It does as much damage as the Master Sword, but it has slow speed compared to Link's Swords. It can be used against certain enemies, such as Tektites, to flip them over and attack them. If used on the ground close to a wall with a Skullwalltula, it will knock the spider off and defeat it without hitting it directly.
According to Goron legends, a mythic hero of the Gorons and an ancestor to Darunia, patriarch of the Gorons, used the Megaton Hammer in battle against Volvagia. Wielding it, he was victorious and sealed the dragon in the fires of Death Mountain. Thus, it is necessary to defeat Volvagia. The Megaton Hammer is also effective in the final battle with Ganon for attacking his tail.

- "A long time ago there was an evil dragon named Volvagia living in this mountain. That dragon was very scary! He ate Gorons! Using a huge hammer, the hero of the Gorons... BOOOM! Destroyed it just like that. This is a myth from long ago, but it's true! I know, because my dad is a descendant of the hero!" — Link (Ocarina of Time)
