Great Mayfly Fairy
The Great Mayfly Fairy of Mount
Crenel. She provides you with a larger
bomb bag, allowing you to carry more
bombs with you.

The Great Mayfly Fairy is found on Mount Crenel, on an eastern ledge of the Crenel Wall. Link can use a Bomb on the wall near a Sign that warns against using Bombs.[3] Once inside, if Link throws a Bomb into her Fountain, she will ask if he threw a Golden Bomb, a Silver Bomb, or neither.[4] If Link gives the honest answer of "Neither", she rewards him with a Big Bomb Bag;[5] however, if he gives either of the other incorrect answers, she accuses him of lying and takes away all of his Bombs.[6]
