Artwork of Link holding an Ember Seed
Throughout all of Labrynna and Holodrum, trees, bushes, pots, and even enemies hold Mystical Seeds. There are five types: Ember Seeds, Scent Seeds, Pegasus Seeds, Gale Seeds and Mystery Seeds. Seeds can be carried in a Seed Satchel and shot with a Slingshot or Seed Shooter. They grow on Mystical Trees. In addition, Four Swords also features three types of Mystical Seeds known as Razor Seeds, Armor Seeds, and Pegasus Seeds.
Ember Seeds are Mystical Seeds that ignite when cracked open. They can be used to light torches, burn shrubs, and cause enemies to spontaneously combust. If Link uses one on a Gibdo, its wrappings will burn off, revealing the Stalfos underneath.
Scent Seeds are Mystical Seeds that emit a weird smell when cracked open. Many enemies are attracted to this scent, although it doesn't work on every enemy. These seeds are mostly used for shooting enemies and targets with either the Seed Shooter or the Slingshot. When shot, these seeds inflict physical damage without any evident scent effect.
Pegasus Seeds are Mystical Seeds that cause Link to run faster. They appear in Oracle of Ages, Oracle of Seasons and Four Swords. They can be used in conjunction with Roc's Feather to jump farther. When shot, these Seeds will freeze enemies in their tracks.
In Four Swords, picking up a Pegasus Seed will double Link's walking speed until the stage is cleared. Like the rest of the power-ups in Four Swords, they can be found by cutting down grass.
Gale Seeds are Mystical Seeds that produce miniature tornadoes when cracked open. These tornadoes can carry Link to any Mystical Tree that he has found, effectively becoming the warp system of the games. Gale Seeds will blow almost any enemy away if they are fired out of the Seed Shooter or the Slingshot.
Mystery Seeds are one of the many types of Mystical Seeds. As suggested by their name, their effect will remain a mystery until used.
Mystery Seeds are a mix of every type of Mystical Seed including itself, having powers from each and every Seed. Their own unique ability is the power to bring Owl Statues to life. They are also the one thing which may undermine Veran, while she possesses the body of another.
Abilities of the Mystery Seeds
Mystery Seeds, although possessing abilities from each and every seed, are not all-powerful, and do not feature each and every ability that other Seeds do. The abilities they possess are activated upon contact with any enemy. All other times, they will explode with a mysterious sound, accompanied by a mysterious smoke. They are capable of:
- Burning certain enemies (Ember Seeds)
- Injuring certain enemies (Scent Seeds)
- Freezing certain enemies in place (Pegasus Seeds)
- Blowing certain enemies away (Gale Seeds)
- Awakening Owl Statues (Mystery Seeds themselves)
- Driving malevolent beings (like Veran) from a body they may be possessing (Mystery Seeds themselves)
Razor Seeds are small red seeds that appear in Four Swords. Picking up a Razor Seed will double Link's attack power until the end of the current stage. It is one of the three upgrades available, the other two being the Armor Seed and the Pegasus Seed. Like the rest of the Mystical Seeds in the game, the Razor Seeds can be found by cutting down grass.
Armor Seeds are mystical seeds featured in Four Swords. They are small blue seeds which have a crystalline appearance. Picking up an Armor Seed will double Link's defensive power until the end of the current stage. They can be found by cutting grass.
- In the Oracle series, Pegasus Seeds are blue in-game but green in their artwork, while Mystery Seeds are green in-game but violet in their artwork.
- Mystery Seeds are called "Harena Seeds" in early prints of the Oracle of Ages manga by Akira Himekawa.
