Trivia

If you go into the room with the giant statue inside the Spirit Temple, and aim the Hookshot at where the nipples would be, you will find that you can grapple on to them. It's possible this was a joke by Nintendo. See more »

Goofs

Link goes into suspended animation in the Temple of Time as a kid with no earrings. He wakes up with some on, but since he also is wearing a different and larger clothes, leggings, gauntlets, a shirt beneath his tunic, boots, etc., someone (presumably Rauru) must have changed his clothes when his body began outgrowing the old.

Quotes

Nabooru: First of all, let me introduce myself. I'm Nabooru of the Gerudo. I'm a lone wolf thief. But don't get me wrong! Though we're both thieves, I'm completely different from Ganondorf. With his followers, he stole from women and children, and even killed people!A kid like you may not know this, but the Gerudo race consists only of women. Only one man is born every hundred years... Even though our laws say that lone male Gerudo must become King of the Gerudo, I'll never bow to such an evil man!

The Best Video Game That I Have Ever Played
23 July 2005 | by BSHBenSee all my reviews

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is quite possibly the best video game ever made. The environments, particularly Hyrule Field, are huge and very detailed. Perhaps the best part about Ocarina of Time is the incredibly long game play. The main game is exciting and their is an almost uncountable number of side-quests. You can try to find all 100 Gold Sculltulas, collect all the pieces of heart, acquire the Biggoron's Sword, complete the Training area for the ice arrow, catch the 20-pounder fish, or own all four empty bottles. Ocarina of Time's N64 sequel, Majora's Mask, is also a great game, although Ocarina of Time is a bit better.
