Hyrule Town

  • Piece of Hearts The Minish CapShrink in the young man's with a dog house, then go between the flowers north of the hotel
  • At Simon's Simulations (house with a green roof in the centre), pay 10 rupees to play and win the game
  • [Roc's Cape required] Stand under the bell and jump to make the Piece of Heart fall down
  • [Roc's Cape required] Behind the fountain, as a Minish, walk on the footbridge and fly west
  • [Four Sword required] In the school's playground, as a Minish (use the vase in the classroom to shrink), walk to the end of the tiny path, clone yourself and push the block
  • In the southeast part, help Anju to bring back the cuccos in the pen. You have to pass 10 steps! (2 in 25s, 3 in 25s, 4 in 30s, 5 in 45s, 5 in 50s, 5 in 45s, 6 in 50s, 7 in 60s, 2 in 55s and finaly 3 in 55s). The latter requires the Flippers to get a white cucco near Nitendo, then throw it above the river and cross the river again. To save time, you can throw a cucco towards the pen from the door of the blue-roof house: the cucco will go to the pen by itself (and you'll hear the rooster sing). Anju gives 820 rupees in total!
  • Once you have all Nitendo's figurines, talk several times to the man left of the café, to get him open his house's door just above
