Chest Guide

Information provided by Artemis251, Jay Harland, mabdulra

Various items are available from chests upon activating Doghouse Glitch, some of which are useful for speedruns. When you first enter the glitched map you are required to move up-left in order to gain regular control of Link. The first room where you have control of Link is room I8, where the letter refers to your Y-coordinate and the number refers to your X-coordinate. See In-Game Maps for more information. All maps contain 256 rooms divided into a 16x16 grid. The number following the table heads below indicate how many enemies you need to kill in order for the chest data to be correct. Many chests contain only text and no items; those will remain unlisted.

All information below is specifically for Link's Awakening DX. Some information may be missing.

Item Upgrade Oddities

If you have the Level-1 Power Bracelet when you open a Power Bracelet chest you will obtain the Level-2 Power Bracelet. Opening another Power Bracelet chest will not give you a Level-3 Power Bracelet. However, shields will upgrade and you can go beyond the Level-3 Shield.

Trading Item Chest

In Doghouse 8 there is a trading item chest located in B7. If you have not started the trading quest you will be given the first item, the Yoshi Doll. If you leave the room and come back you can open the chest a second time; this will give you the second item in the trading quest. Using this chest it is possible to get the Magnifying Lens early. It should be noted, however, that if you open the chest after getting the Magnifying Lens you will receive a glitched trading item.
