The Riddle Quest is a sidequest in A Link to the Past & Four Swords.

Procedure

The Riddle Quest can only be started if Link has gathered at least 10 Medals of Courage in Four Swords on the same game file. The Bug Catching Net is also required.

To begin the quest, Link must first talk to Q. Bumpkin inside the Lumberjack's house, located north of the Death Mountain entrance.[1] He will give Link the Basket and a riddle, and send him off to catch the creature or item with the net that solves it.[2] After solving all ten riddles, Link will receive the Hurricane Spin.[3] He will also receive three Carver's Statues after solving the first, fourth, and seventh riddles.[4]
