Eggbusters

Last week the relatively new Nintendo Everything YouTube series Eggbusters explored a barren and glitchy wasteland in Twilight Princess. Now your host Austin is attempting to do the impossible again, this time in franchise favorite Ocarina of Time.

There are two glitches on display this time around, with the first seeing Link taking a hot lava bath in Death Mountain Crater while playing his ocarina. Now that’s a fearless hero – or absolute nutcase, you decide. The second takes Link outside the bounds of the game world in Kakariko Village, where no Hylian has gone before. You can try them both out yourself with relative ease, so read on to watch the video!

For directions for the glitches in written form, here’s the transcripts straight from Zelda Wiki:

Glitch 1:

“First, enter Death Mountain Crater without your Goron Tunic. This allows the “death timer” to start. Next, walk towards any edge near lava. Now, wait until the timer turns red. Prepare to jump. As soon as there is 1-2 seconds left, jump. Once the timer runs out, your hearts should all disappear in mid-jump. Link will die on the lava, and will not reset. His fairy will come out at this point. Once the fairy is almost done with healing Link, start mashing the ocarina button. If timed right, he will pull out his ocarina.”

Glitch 2:

“Enter the top area of the Windmill by using the Longshot from outside on the nearest roof, the wooden peg is your target. Run up and grab the Cucco you should see there (sometimes it’s not around, if so just leave the area and return, hopefully he’ll be back). Now, holding the Cucco, get as far back as you can, facing the higher exit of this part of the Windmill, equip your Hover Boots, and run outside, immediately holding left to go around the corner of the Windmill. Aim yourself at a sort of bend in the wooden barrier, the second segment from the right. When you get as far as you can go, press B and Link will do a slash down at the fence, which should cause you to land beyond it or on top of it if you’ve done this correctly.”

    That was really cool! I'll have to try those sometimes. N64 glitches always fascinated me. I guess because it was a really simple form of 3D graphics, and when you mess around with glitches you can see how the game was put together.

    I wonder if these are still do-able in the 3DS version. I know they left a lot of popular glitches in on purpose.

    Now i must try…

    Been playing OoT for 10 years. Never knew the Gossip Stones gave you fairies. I guess you learn something new everyday.
