The Elixir Soup is a recurring Item in The Legend of Zelda series.[1][note 1]

Location and Uses

The Wind Waker

In The Wind Waker, Elixir Soup special soup made for Link by his Grandmother. The Soup heals both his health and Magic and also doubles his attack power until he takes damage.[3][4] It is stored in bottles like a Potion and each bottle can hold two helpings.[5]

Link can get the Soup after he cures his Grandmother, when she falls ill. Link does this by going to Fairy Fountain on Outset Island to get a Fairy that will heal her.[6] After being healed, Link can always get a Bottle of soup from her when he runs out.[7] Unlike when he drinks a Bottle of potion, Link smiles before he drinks the soup rather than grimacing; this is apparently because it is Link's favorite soup, which his grandma originally planned to prepare for him on his birthday.[8]
