Faron Province

─────── Any% ───────

Forest Escape

During or after Faron Twilight, it is possible to escape the Faron Woods with an LJA. Full details can be found on the Forest Escape page.

Postman Skip going to Eldin

It is possible to skip the mailman trigger that is on the way to Eldin Twilight. To do this, stand next to the white spot shown in the video, then throw the boomerang ahead and LJA when the boomerang is OoB. This works because the boomerang is over a void OoB.

Gate Clip to access Lanayru early

There are various ways to reach Lanayru Province early by clipping through the gate that blocks access. A full list can be found here.

Epona OoB to access Lanayru early

Discovered by Dragonbane

Instead of lining up Epona with the gate and bonking into it, you can set her out of bounds by perfoming Map Glitch and come back later after finishing Eldin Twilight to jump on her back out of bounds and simply bypass the gate. This is equal to 1 bonk for Gate Clip if set up really fast.

Forest Escape (Gate)

In the Ordon Day 2 storyline when you are in the Faron Woods, there is a gate blocking access to Hyrule Field South. It's possible to clip through this gate; methods can be found on the Forest Escape page under the Epona Methods.

Postman Skip going to Eldin (Wii alternative)

The postman trigger is much smaller on Wii 1.0, so to avoid it, a simple jump attack will suffice. Perform a jump attack as human or wolf at two locations. See video for clear visuals.

Epona Seam Clip in South Field

By running into a seam in South Hyrule Field at a precise speed and angle, it is possible to clip through.

Coro Text Displacement

Discovered by Taka

With a 1 frame Ooccoo pull, you can warp out of the area before Coro's next dialogue line begins after the bottle text. This keeps the Text Displacement value at 2.

Bomb boost to Lost Woods

It is possible to use a bomb boost to get out of bounds in the N. Faron warp portal area. Once up, you can use an LJA to get to a place where you can LJA to the Lost Woods entrance. This has been used in All Dungeons and 100% to get to Temple of Time quicker.

To do this, stand on the highest point of the root and line up your hearts as shown in the video (1st heart in line with the other tree's right side is useful). Now throw a bomb forward and instantly aim the boomerang as high as possible without looking right or left, then throw the boomerang and LJA instantly to get up on the slope. Mash B to stay here until the bomb pushes you higher onto solid ground. You can also wait a second before the LJA so that the bomb won't take as long to explode once you're up there.

From here, you want to roll around or backflip over the root of the tree and stand in the corner seen in the video. Then, aim roughly over a low point on the other side low point and LJA across. Roll forward 4 times and then roll left and slightly up; there is a slope here, so make sure you get up it in the first roll. (If you are unsure, you can C-Up to see where the limits of land and slope are.) Now use your map to aim at the Lost Woods entrance, throw the boomerang, and LJA as it is over the void on its way back to you.

LJA to Lost Woods

Using the same method as above, you can LJA onto the wall and get out of bounds only using the boomerang. It is harder than the bomb boost method but allows you to get into Lost Woods with nothing but the boomerang

Stand on the highest point of the root and align your hearts the same as the bomb boost setup, then throw the boomerang as high as possible straight up. Mash B to stay on the ledge and keep mashing until Link stops slipping off of the slope. You can hold left while mashing to keep Link's sword from recoiling against the wall and knocking you down once you're up.

From here, you can follow the same path into Lost Woods as the bomb boost method above.

Grove 2 chase

It is faster to stay human for the entirety of Grove 2 in All Dungeons. 100% transforms into wolf before entering Sacred Grove to collect the poe and back to human for Grove 2 Skip.

When entering Sacred Grove 2 as human: - For the 1st hit, roll towards the wall that will disappear instead of going towards skull kid behind the tree. You can shoot him from here. - Stay human as you make your way to the his 2nd location and once again shoot him with an arrow. You can do a sidehop after shooting him to save some time on movement. - For the 3rd hit, it is important to note that when exiting the area with the water and poe you need to turn back for a bit then continue going forward. This is because on the first hit the triggers don't count as following him so your way will be blocked unless you do this. Finally, you can shoot him from below on the ground rather than climbing up the tree steps.

The bomb chest shown is 30 bombs and is not necessary for some categories. Some 100% routes as well as Bug Limit Any% open it.

Grove 2 Skip

Full details can be found at the Grove 2 Skip page.

─────── Misc. ───────

South Faron OoB

Early mist area Heart Piece

By getting Epona OoB in South Faron, you can get to the shortcut load zone without Dominion Rod. Ride Epona around the Hyrule loading zone and use the OoB collision to get a little more height. Then ride Epona to the cliff by Coro's house and ride Epona off the cliff to get more height. Ride over to the shortcut and backflip into the loading zone.

Skip gate in the mist area (wolf)

Using a sidehop clip, you can clip through the gate, skipping the need to get the small key.

Skip gate in the mist area (human)

By getting Epona OoB in South Faron, you can get Epona into areas not normally accessible. Ride Epona towards the mist area and use the minimap to position Epona in the spot where the mist area should be, then backflip off to void out. Run to the mist area, mount Epona, then ride her under the Mist gate and backflip into the loading zone.

Early Forest Temple

By getting Epona OoB in South Faron, you can get Epona into areas not normally accessible. Ride Epona around the Hyrule loading zone and use the OoB collision to get a little more height. Then ride Epona to the cliff by Coro's house and ride Epona off the cliff to get more height (920-930 Y-pos). Ride over to where North Faron should be on the map and use the minimap to help position Epona near where the Forest Temple entrance should be. (Note: If Epona is positioned too close to the blue bokoblins, she'll get scared and clip in bounds.) Void out, then enter North Faron. Ride Epona OoB and behind the Forest Temple loading zone. Backflip in to enter.

LJA to Grove 100R chest

There is a 100R chest in the Skull Kid 1 area that normally requires the spinner to access. However, you can LJA over there, requiring only the boomerang. Stand on the very edge at the black spot on the ground at the top of the vines and then target above the arch. You should line up your targets so they are slightly in the wall so that you won't recoil.

Master Sword Puzzle Skip

Using a few precise LJAs, you can skip the statue puzzle normally needed to open the path to the Master Sword. This is useful when using Fixed EMS.

Bug during Master Sword timesaver (obsolete)

Old 100% routes (with Fixed EMS) get the golden bug at Sacred Grove before Master Sword. There is a timesaver with clever targets to boomerang the bug through the wall without entering the walled off area. Once in the boomerang, the bug will come to you during the master sword CS and you can pick it up afterwards.
