A Link to the Past
- Main article: Whirlpool Waterway
Whirlpools are first seen in A Link to the Past, known as Whirlpool Waterways and are scattered throughout Hyrule. Link may use certain Whirlpools to Warp to different areas in Hyrule. Whirlpools also indicate the surfacing of Zoras from bodies of water.
Ocarina of Time
Oracle of Ages
Whirlpools appear in the Sea of Storms in Oracle of Ages. They are impassible barriers that will swallow Link whole if he attempts to cross them. The only means of passing them is through an underwater entrance in the past.
The Wind Waker
Whirlpools are found all over the Great Sea in The Wind Waker. Whirlpools form around various obstacles, such as the barrier to Jabun's cave on Outset Island or when water is displaced from Big Octos surfacing. Whenever they appear, Link must complete the task at hand within a timely manner or he will be swallowed by the Whirlpool. Entering a Whirlpool in The Wind Waker causes the weather to become stormy until the Whirlpool disappears.
