The Scale is an item in Link's Awakening.[1]

Location and Uses

The Scale is the thirteenth item in the game's Trading Sequence.[2] It is obtained from Martha the Mermaid, who promises Link one of her Scales from her tail in return of her missing Necklace.[1] The Scale is pivotal to complete "The Mourning Mermaid", an unfinished Statue that Schule Donavitch sculpted in Martha's Bay.[3][4] After placing the Scale onto the statue, it will move aside and reveal a cave where Link finds the final item in the Trading Sequence, the Magnifying Lens.[5]
