Top 10 Worst The Legend of Zelda Items

The Top Ten
1 Telescope

This item is bogus. What the heck are you looking at that's so detailed? News flash! Cel-shaded games don't have detail!

You only need to use it once, and if you ever use it again, it's probably by accident.

Yeah, you only need it to progress the story (much like the Gerudo passport or so).

2 Wooden Shield

In Twilight Princess, the Ordon Shield is already twice as strong, and the wooden shield burns or breaks in one hit!

3 Tingle Tuner

Since when does anyone use it? And it's from Tingle, so it's got to be awful.

It's just a green Game Boy Advance that's only useful for saving Tingle.

4 Deku Nut

It also appeared in Majora's Mask. All it does is damage enemies. That's it. Not killing, but damaging.

5 Couple's Mask

Why doesn't this mask do anything? I spent like three hours getting it!

Lame side quest + lame looks = Couple's Mask.

6 Slingshot

You all have good points, but come on! How many of you wanted your very own slingshot when you were kids?

In OOT, you need it to progress through the first few dungeons.

It's kinda annoying to use, but the Scattershot saves it.

7 Green Tunic

The other tunics actually do something and look way cooler.

8 Giant's Knife

Plus, you can just get it replaced by one that doesn't break. You spend 200 Rupees on a sword that breaks and takes 7 years to complete. When you first get the item, your reaction will probably be, "Oh cool! A new sword!"

*Swing it a couple of times at the wall to test it out.*


"What the chunk! It breaks!"

Time to finally use this knife in the final battle with Ganon. I wanted to save it for later because I was told it was a special weapon. I don't have my Master Sword, so... hyah!

"Knife breaks."

What the living heck? I was ripped off!

When I'm done with this adventure, I'm going to kill that giant Goron liar.

9 Magic Armor

Costs you 3,598 Rupees in all to get. Drains your Rupees as you wear it. But it does make you invulnerable... AS LONG AS YOU HAVE RUPEES! Once you get hit, it takes away 12 more Rupees.

Plus, you just went on a giant "Rupee grinding" quest. In my opinion, Twilight Princess was the hardest game to get Rupees in (as opposed to OOT and MM, where money is no object).

It took me three weeks to get this armor, and it was the most useless item in all of Zelda. I also did it in probably the quickest way that I could think of: doing the Agitha Bug fetch quest. That was torture enough.

Rupees are crap.

10 Wooden Sword

Take this stick and go fight evil.

The Contenders
11 Hestu's Gift

Not doing it. This makes 100%-ing the game not worth it. Nintendo should have made it so that you buy them.

I would then 100% the game easily because I am the person who uses too many glitches. I would ace this because I duplicated rupees.

What kind of item is this in a Zelda game?

12 Tree Branch

It's just a tree branch. Very weak and can break easily. That's it. It's just a stupid branch of a tree. Nothing here, folks.

Only a minor means of defense before you get better stuff.

Imagine how much pain YouTubers go through doing a tree branch-only challenge.

13 Cursed Medal

This item in Skyward Sword will make Rupees appear more often, but at the cost, you can't use any pouch items. No shields. No potions. No nothing.

14 Shovel
15 Purple Chu Jelly

Anything can happen if you drink this jelly in Twilight Princess.

Let's spin that roulette wheel.

16 Spinner
17 Hawkeye

Nobody really needs it. The Hawkeye is a baby toy. I can snipe those weird goblin things from a mile away even without that Hawkeye.

18 Wallet

Link basically has a TARDIS of items in his pockets, so why does he even need the wallet upgrades?

19 Pumpkin Seeds
20 Royal Guard Gear

Really high attack, but breaks in like two hits.

21 Phantom Hourglass
22 Bomblings

Who needs Bomblings when you have regular bombs? All they do is walk and explode. You can't control the Bomblings.

23 Gust Bellows
24 Dominion Rod

It only controls the statues. Don't see anything bad about it? Just play the game.

25 Picto Box

You just take pictures for nothing. You can complete the whole game without it, right?
