Talk:Tadtone

From Zelda Wiki, the Zelda encyclopedia

Spin maneuver

The section about using the spin maneuver being essential to collect a certain tadtone:

"This skill is essential for recovering one of the Tadtones, which is stuck in the thorny underside of a lilypad."

is incorrect, to my knowledge. During my playthrough, I could not use the spin maneuver near it to bring it in - It seemed was necessary to jump off a branch above the lilypad to flip it over and free the tadtone, before collecting it (which I did with the spin maneuver; hovever I don't know if it can escape you if you don't spin to collect it though). So far I have only confirmed this with some gamefaqs walkthroughs.

Also, (sorry, i don't know the correct place to mention this,) I think that there should be a page called "Lily pad", as I have not found any page or subsection of it that exists. I think it is justified as it has appeared in at least Skyward Sword, the two n64 games, the Minish cap - opinions?

Thanks for any response!

OK, that sentence has been removed. And I think an article on lily pads would be great! They're certainly a notable object in the series. — Hylian King [*] 09:05, 17 July 2012 (EDT)
The (apparently still unnamed) spinning move isn't essential (I think I put that word in the article and if I did I apologize), but if memory serves it can be used to do this. I've done it. It's a bit finicky. I'd test it again on my own copy of the game but currently my Wii is having issues reading discs. Anyway, both this move and jumping onto the lilypad to flip it are viable ways to retrieve that Tadtone.
As for a lilypad article, absolutely go ahead with that! It's a recurring object in this series with a role in gameplay mechanics. By all means it should have its own article. --Osteoderm Jacket 21:50, 17 July 2012 (EDT)
