Main appearance(s)

Golden Bombs are recurring Objects in The Legend of Zelda series.[1][2]


Oracle of Ages

In Oracle of Ages, Talus Peaks has a natural fountain with a Sign next to it warning people not to throw anything into the water.[3] If Link throws in a Bomb, a red Fairy appears. She materializes a Golden Bomb and a Silver Bomb and asks Link which one he dropped.[1] If he answers honestly, the Fairy rewards him by increasing the amount of Bombs he can carry by 20.[4] If Link responds by saying he dropped the Golden Bomb, the Fairy asks him to confirm,[5] twice.[6] If he affirms the lie both times, the Fairy teaches him a lesson by depleting his Life Energy to a single Heart.[7][8] To obtain the upgrade Link must leave the area, then return and throw in another Bomb to restart the whole interaction.

The Minish Cap

In The Minish Cap, Link throws a Bomb into the Great Mayfly Fairy's Fountain, she will ask him whether he threw a Golden Bomb, a Silver Bomb, or neither.[2] If Link gives the honest answer of "Neither", she rewards him with a Big Bomb Bag;[9] however, if he gives either of the other incorrect answers, she accuses him of lying and takes away all of his Bombs.[10]

Golden Bombs are not seen in-game, only mentioned.
