The Cannonballs are objects in The Legend of Zelda series.[1][name reference needed]

Location and Uses[]

The Wind Waker[]

Cannonballs are first seen when Tetra's Pirate Crew are assailing the Helmaroc King in order to rescue Tetra. They inadvertently cause Tetra to fall into the Forest of Fairies by striking the Helmaroc King in the face with a Cannonball.

Cannonballs are also used during the Squid-Hunt Minigame and the Cannon Minigame. In both Minigames, they are represented with icons of Bombs with skulls.
