Damage Buffering

Discovered by Acryte

Using the Ocarina and a Bomb/Bombchu, you can buffer damage in order to lower your health quickly anywhere. Buffering effectively multiplies the damage done by the explosion. This is very useful for setting up a cutscene skip or causing a death in order to deathwarp to the entrance of a dungeon.

How To Do:

  1. Drop a Bomb/Bombchu near you.
  2. Right as it is about to explode, push the Ocarina button.
  3. Once the HUD fades out (except for the B button), press B to stop playing and then quickly re-press the Ocarina button (you will take 1/2 heart of damage).
  4. Repeat until Link is at the desired number of hearts.
