The Deku Scrub Slingshot Game is a minigame featured in Ocarina of Time.

Location and Rules

The minigame can be found deep within the Lost Woods, and it is arguably the easiest to win out of all the minigames in The Legend of Zelda series.

Link must fire a Deku Seed at a round, wooden target using the Fairy Slingshot to achieve points. If the bull’s-eye is hit three times in a row, a Deku Scrub will jump up and compliment Link on his accurate firing and reward him with a Bullet Bag upgrade.[1]

The bulls-eye is worth a total of 100 points, and once Link hits dead center, he can simply shoot to get it twice more (provided that he does not move.)


  • The Deku Scrub at this minigame is the only one who will not attack Link on sight in this game.
  • During the scene showing the Deku Scrub giving Link his reward, the last seed he fired can be seen spinning just in front of the target.
