Secret Seashell.gif

26 Secret Seashells are scattered across Koholint Island, which can be found underneath bushes, rocks, underwater, or inside Treasure Chests.[1] Though typically obtained one at a time, Link may receive two at the Seashell Mansion as long as he is already carrying exactly five or ten seashells. Link receives the Level 2 Sword at the Seashell Mansion after collecting twenty or more seashells.[2] The Sword upgrade is twice as strong as the Level 1 Sword and can shoot Sword Beams whenever Link is at full health.

Once the Level 2 Sword is obtained, any remaining Secret Seashell will either disappear or be replaced with 20 Rupees.
