Manholes
"There are many pitfalls and chasms in the dungeons which typically do not have fences around them. If you stray off the path and fall into a pit, you will sustain damage and return to the entrance of the room. There are also manholes (see below) in the dungeons. If you fall into one of these, you will drop through to the floow below, but you will not sustain damage."


Link's Awakening

Pitfalls
"Some of the treacherous walkways in the dungeon are not fenced. If you stray from these paths, you may fall into a bottomless pit and return to the entrance of the room. Some holes are not bottomless - a fall into one of these will land you in the room below."


Oracle of Seasons

Link can use the Roc's Feather and the Roc's Cape to jump over Pits.[8]

Oracle of Ages

Link can use the Roc's Feather and the Switch Hook to cross gaps formed by Pits.[9]

Four Swords Adventures



The Minish Cap

Holes appear throughout Hyrule and in Dungeons in The Minish Cap. If Link falls into one with no visible bottom, it will damage him; however, some Holes have a view of a lower floor, making them safe for Link to fall into and placing him on the lower floor. Some puzzles require Link to retrieve Small Keys that have fallen into Holes.
