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. Once inside, if Link throws a Bomb into her Fountain, she will ask if he threw a Golden Bomb, a Silver Bomb, or neither. If Link gives the honest answer of "Neither", she rewards him with a Big Bomb Bag; however, if he gives either of the other incorrect answers, she accuses him of lying and takes away all of his Bombs.
- The interaction with the Great Mayfly Fairy is nearly identical to one Link can have with an unnamed Fairy at Talus Peaks in Oracle of Ages. A Link to the Past was the first game to introduce the concept of upgrading an item by throwing it into a Great Fairy's fountain and receiving a reward for answering the Great Fairy's question honestly. The Cursed Fairy in A Link to the Past can grant Link the Silver Arrows and the golden Master Sword Lv3.
