Restricted Items

Restricted Items is a type of glitch which allows you to use items or buttons in situations where they are supposed to be dimmed.

Zora Swimming in Shallow Water

Honey and Darling Day 3 (JP only)

Simply play the Day 3 Honey and Darling minigame as deku link and you will be able to use any item on C.

With Saving at Owl Statues (US only)

If you get on Epona, enter a loading zone, then save at an owl statue and reload the save, you will be able to use any C button until you pause, leave the area, or transform to Deku, Goron, or Zora. Since the glitch gets cancelled when transforming, if you want to use restricted items as a transformation, save at the owl statue again.
