Top Ten The Legend of Zelda Items


The Top Ten

1 Double Clawshots

Lets you act like spiderman

The double clawshots lets be serious are just bad ass I think that the clawshots are more important than the master sword Ok I'm going to ocarina of time link makes a sword stronger than the master sword so I would give up the master sword to get the clawshots and just make a sword more stronger than the master sword ever thought of being. The double clawshots also help get to higher places.

Come on! It's two clawshots! No other item in the entire Zelda series is as useful as this item. I mean, think about how often you get to use it OUTSIDE of it's dungeon. - Daxflame

People can be like spiderman with these badass things you can go to one place then go to the other place but you can't do that with a regular hookshot!

2 The Master Sword

Literally the only reason the timeline makes sense. Sure, link didn't use it in the very first game made, but skyward sword explained how he got this iconic weapon. It might not be the funnest thing to use, but it's the most important.

I LOVE THE MASTER SWORD! The sword of evil's bane for the WIN!

I honestly don't get why this isn't number 1. The Master Sword is my favorite weapon to use in Legend of Zelda.

Link would not, could not have completed any of his quests without this item. Some may say "But he has other swords! " but we true heroes know better. Do "other swords" release blasts of magic energy? Do "other swords" have the same ability to take link through time? Finally, are any other swords so powerful and pure that they are literally
Called "The Sword of Evil's Bane"

3 The Ocarina of Time

Classic. It's a great Item and now it's popular because of Ocarina of Time. I want one now xD!

I love it because you can play the most classic of zelda tunes from only 5 notes

The Ocarina of Time, most definitely. I think this item is the only reason that most people even know of ocarinas, because heck, even I went out and bought an ocarina just b/c it inspired me so much.

I love it... and itโ€™s a main part of OOT and MM... plus the sound is great and the songs are classic...

4 Bow and Arrow

Ah, memories of sitting somewhere unseen and just picking off enemies... Or riding through Hyrule Field on Epona and shooting the enemies you can't run over. Seriously, the bow is the most useful item out there, along with bombs.

All time favorite item ever. I can't think of anything better to use. They even upgrade to silver arrows. Nothing beats arrows infused with light... Nothing.

Link become snipes mcgumphery when he has this item. I mean, sniping enemies from any position. Also elemental arrows Are incredible. The bow is best in twilight princess, because bomb arrows and the cool camera angle.

The bow of light from spirit tracks it the best.

5 The Boomerang

The Beetle was more fun to use because it can pick stuff up and you can control it.

Windwaker version is the best

The TP version of the boomerang is the best because not only can it lock up to five targets,but it can make a small tornado as well.


6 Beetle

This and the ball and chain are best just because of the uses and design

I like it because I can pick up stuff and control it while also being able to see what was ahead of me. I hope they bring it back. - Skullkid755

You get to fly around an awesome looking mechanical bug, cutting ropes and dropping bombs on enemies. So awesome!

Was more fun to use than the boomerang

7 Bombs

Look at this. I found a secret doorway.

8 Hylian Shield
9 Roc's Cape

The Roc's Cape may not give Link the ability to literally fly, but it still has plenty of other useful purposes, like gliding and jumping. This is one of the things that made the game fun for me.

I love me some Roc's Cape, especially in Minish Cap when you can do that midair downward thrust just like in Smash Bros! :D by the way, the Clawshot kicks the Hookshot's ass... just saying - Oreanta

10 Deku Leaf

The Deku Leaf is the best Wind Waker item. I cannot tell you how many times I used that thing outside of it's dungeon. No matter what happened, my Deku leaf was always equipped.

You can glide with it and it can blow away enemies.

The Contenders

11 Bomb Arrow

BEST INVENTION EVER why snipe someone when you could snipe some one and blow them up AT THE SAME TIME this is truly awesomeness that kills. I mean c mon what's more badass then killing monsters with flying bombs

I mean come on!?

12 Magic Cape

You are invisible and invincible - moose4life19

Not just invisible it made you invincible. Your only concern when wearing it was falling in a hole. Let the boss slaughterfest commence

13 Spinner

So much fun

I just got this item today... I'm very happy... Now excuse me while I go kill a giant bone goat head with a spinner that flies across the room... Because that... Is fun...

This item is fun and cool even though it isn't that useful outside of the Arbiter's Grounds

It's just amazing how I can "Ride the rails" with this thing. It deserves to be #1.

14 Bottle

How is this not number one?

How is this not in the top 10!
It holds:
-Defeated Poes
to name but a few!

not to mention they can deflect certain attacks like Ganondorf's energy ball attacks from OoT.

15 The Mirror Shield

this item is very unique. it can reflect things and it'as a mirror used a shield. very unusal too. - lucario411

16 Bunny Hood

Made getting the Mask of Scents ( don't know what it does though) easier. - Skullkid755

This item is awesome it makes you like sonic

I love that hood if I ain't transformed I'm wearing the bunny hood I also like how you get it

17 Dominion Rod

Decent item with great use i. Temple of time

18 Ball and Chain

Doesn't it feel food to swing one weapon and knock down an entire row of enemies? Ball and chain for the win.

The way you get it is awesome, the way you use it awesome, there is nothing wrong with it!

The ball and chain is fun weapon to destroy enemies.Haha.Crash.๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ™ƒ

19 Longshot

Why is The Boomerang above this?
It is so much harder to aim with that thing.

20 Zora's Flippers
21 Fierce Deity's Mask

No doubt about it, most OP item in the zelda series ever. It should at least be placed in the top 10 because of how fun it is to use!

This should be much higher on the list you kill bosses IN 5 SECONDS

One of the most powerful items Links ever layed his hands on.

It's the most powerful weapon in Zelda history. It's OP af. I'm beginning to think that everyone who voted for other items, have never played Majora's Mask before.

22 The Hammer

On WindWaker when you are on Beetles Boat shop on the deck, smack it with your hammer and it will stop :D

Every problem can be solved with a badass hammer

MEGATON HAMMER for the win!

Ok none of you can say smaking people in the face with the hammer on windwaker wasn't highlarious

23 Biggoron's Sword
24 Pegasus Boots
25 The Flute

transports you places (different from the Ocarina) - CaptainComedy17

The ocarina was like an amazing smartphone gadget with loads of uses. You could keep messing around with it unlike other items that could only be used in specific locations or just for certain uses.

26 Gust Bellows

I don't know why I'm voting for this but here is my great reason (only the skyward sword one) It looks like GHOST BUSTERS but besides just blowing stuff away and being some ghost buster guy this is stupid

27 Cane of Somaria
28 Whip

Gotta love ripping peoples hearts out with this thing

Castlevania had this weapon

29 Ravio's Bracelet

I love the ability to wall merge. - Skullkid755

30 Scattershot
31 Ancient Bladesaw

A Badass Saw-thing, with high damage

32 Hookshot

if I could have any zelda item in real life it would be the hook shot

Love this.. so fun to muck around with!

Classic item that has cool uses definitely memorable.

Gets you to high ledges easily. - Skullkid755

33 Lantern
34 Zora Armor
35 Fishing Pole

Use this to bother Ganon at the end of Twilight Princess

36 Power Bracelet

This thing helps you lift up stuff

37 Empty Bottle

There are so many things that you can do with the humble bottle. Over the years, the bottle has been used to hold many things, fairys, water, magic water, shroom spores, potion, and even a princess. You choose what you do with the bottle, and you solve so many puzzles with it. Like any good item, this defines Zelda as a whole, and this is an eccelent, and criminally overlooked item.

38 Bombchu

This thing is f,in awesome he is a bomb mixed with a pikachu

39 Big-Bug Net
40 Telescope
41 Picto Box
42 Bug-Catching Net
43 Magnetic Gloves
44 Water Bomb
45 Bombling
46 Fairy Bottles

They heal u when you die,yo

When I was fighting the Lord Jabu Jabu's Belly boss I almost lost but I was revived and managed to win. - Skullkid755

47 Megaton Hammer

The megaton hammer is AWESOME! just the sheer power it contains is anazing! It makes the ground shake when you use it!

48 Gale Boomerang

So much fun to use, I apply it to literally everything.
"Huh? I just got a bow to cut some ropes? THROW THE GALE BOOMERANG!

49 Mask of Truth
50 Elemental Rods

These items are the fire rod, ice rod, electric rod and dominion rod (not really)
