"You got Elixir Soup! This healthy soup your grandmother makes replenishes all of your life energy and magic power! Your attack power also doubles until the first time you take damage! Now THAT is one hearty soup! And your kind old grandmother filled your bottle so full that there's two helpings inside! Isn't she the sweetest?"
— In-game description

Elixir Soup is an item from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. A soup made by Link's Grandma, it will fully heal Link's health and magic if he drinks it. In addition, it will double his attack strength, making Link's sword glow, until he takes damage. If he has the Magic Armor equipped, his sword will still glow when he is attacked, as long as he has sufficient magic or Rupees. When obtained, two servings of Elixir Soup are stored inside a bottle.

Link can get Elixir Soup after he cures his grandmother from her illness. He does this by capturing a fairy in a bottle and releasing it near his grandmother to heal her. After she is healed, Link can return anytime to get a bottle of soup from her. However, he can only carry one bottle of the soup at a time.

Interestingly, Link smiles as he prepares to drink the soup, instead of grimacing like he does with other Potions. At the beginning of the game, after his grandmother gives him the Hero's Clothes, she tells him that she is going to make his favorite soup for his birthday, implying that she has made it before.
