In Link's Awakening, the Ocarina can be found in the Dream Shrine, which can only be completed if Link has the Power Bracelet and the Pegasus Boots. The Ocarina can be used to play "Manbo's Mambo", "Frog's Song of Soul", and the "Ballad of the Wind Fish".

Other Appearances

BS The Legend of Zelda

In BS The Legend of Zelda, the Ocarina can be found in Level-4. It can be used to warp to other Dungeons. When the Ocarina is played on a pad near the eastern shore, Level-6 will appear.

Hyrule Warriors

In Hyrule Warriors Legends and Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition, a golden Ocarina can be obtained from a Treasure Chest in the middle of the Deku Tree Keep during the Legend Mode Scenario, "The Sorceress of the Woods". The Ocarina allows Warriors to warp to any active Owl Statues in a Stage.[2] When the Ocarina is used, the Warrior plays the "Ballad of Gales" to summon a cyclone that warps them to the selected Owl Statue.

In Hyrule Warriors, the Ocarina is also a class of Weapon used by Skull Kid. It is associated with Darkness. Skull Kid plays the Ocarina to coordinate attacks between Tatl, Tael, and himself. He can transform it into a trumpet to summon and control Puppets from Twilight Princess to attack on his behalf.


The default Ocarina is the Fairy Ocarina, based after its namesake. The second form of the Ocarina is the Lunar Ocarina, followed by Majora's Ocarina.

In Hyrule Warriors Legends and Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition, the fourth form of the Ocarina is the Crackling Ocarina, which is associated with both the Elements of Darkness and Lightning.

Attack Combinations

Attack Pattern Effect
Weak Point Smash
Main article: Critical Point#Hyrule Warriors

Against Captains and Warriors, Skull Kid summons a Puppet behind them. It then rapidly attacks the target by flailing its arms until Skull Kid comes up and finishes off with an energy attack. Against Giant Bosses, Skull Kid uppercuts the monster with Tatl and Tael and then strikes it down while surrounded in a dark barrier.

Special Attack
Main article: Special Attack

Within a frontal radius, Skull Kid uses the dark magic of Majora's Mask and rattles his head while a large magic circle appears. Enemies are drawn into the circle and are rapidly damaged. Skull Kid then ends the attack with an energy burst.

Focus Spirit
Main article: Focus Spirit

Upon activation, Skull Kid stomps the ground in anger, bursting in dark energy. The Focus Spirit Attack has Skull Kid kick a miniature Moon into the air before kicking it again at the enemies in front of him. He then mockingly spanks his behind at them afterwards. When the Focus Spirit gauge is depleted, Skull Kid holds his head and squirms violently until dark power is unleashed, damaging enemies around him.


Ocarina means "little goose" in Italian.
