Goddess Walls

  1. While exploring dungeons, you might spot a swarm of butterflies. Play your harp, and you just might discover a Goddess Wall. These mysterious walls emit a blue light.
  2. To use the Goddess Wall, walk up to it and hold your sword up. You’ll then be able to draw inside the frame. Draw an item in the frame and that item will appear — often, lots of items will appear. Try drawing the items listed for freebies below.
  • Arrow (Pointer) – Grants arrows.
  • Bomb (Circle) – Grants bombs.
  • Rupee – Grants rupees.
  • Heart – Grants hearts.
  • Triforce – Grants three fairies.

Thank you very much, as I wondered what else than bombs, hearts and rupees I could get from those walls. I helped me quite a lot. Thanks again.

Yes, I too would like some drawings. I try drawing a triforce and it comes up hearts :( What does a ruppee drawing look like, a diamond?

I found a wall and saved right before it — I made a ruppee symbol
basically a hexagon shape and it worked!
make sure to try it again if you didn’t get a SILVER rupee! (just load your last save; aka press start, then reset, then yes, then A, then load game)
otherwise it just gives out
2 x green
2 x red
2 x blue

hope that helps!
If anyone gets the triforce let us know!

It has to be drawn in one stroke without running over other lines. Draw the top 2 lines of the top triangle, then keep going down to draw the first side of one of the bottom triangles. Draw the other two sides of that same triangle, then the bottom of the top triangle, then the third triangle on the bottom. Hope this helps.

I just tried a triangle and got 3 faries!

Does anyone knows what is the drawing which is required beside the Goron in Faron Woods (just beside the entrance of the temple) ??

Thanks !

If you draw Link’s hat, a bunch more rupees than the rupee come out. I drew it hanging to the right.

@odin: the goron tells you to draw something different each time you visit him. I think I drew a heart first.

For those needing help with the Triforce, start at the top-left corner of the inner triangle and proceed to to draw the outer one, then, when you connect with the beginning, continue to draw the inner triangle, starting with the corner you began with.

This should help you! It worked for me, thank god because I just used up all the three bottles I had (containing fairies) at the temple with water

Even if they don't just click the link (hahaha)
