All-Purpose Bait is a recurring Item in The Legend of Zelda series.[1]

Location and Uses[]

The Wind Waker[]

All-Purpose Bait can be bought from Beedle Shop Ships once Link has bought the Bait Bag. It can also be bought from Rats and from Tingle using the Tingle Tuner.

It comes in three-use bundles and is delectable for many Animals,[2] including Pigs, Rats, and Fishman. All-Purpose Bait can be used to feed it to the Fishman so they can draw parts of Link's Sea Chart while giving him information about the islands. It can also be used to persuade the large Pig, Link, on Outset Island to dig in black spots of soil to reveal a Piece of Heart. All-Purpose Bait can also be used to lure Rats from their Rat Hole and convince them to sell things to Link, including Arrows, Bombs, Potions, Hyoi Pears, and even more All-Purpose Bait. All-Purpose Bait can also be used in the fight against Puppet Ganon in Ganon's Tower.[clarification needed]
