A Link to the Past
The Flute once belonged to the Flute Boy in A Link to the Past. The Flute Boy set out in search of the Golden Power and never returned. When Link talks to the boy in the Dark World, he gives the young hero a Shovel and asks him to find his Flute. Link finds this instrument buried in the Haunted Grove in the Light World. He then plays the Flute one last time for the boy, who is soothed by the music and is then turned into a Tree.
When Link brings the Flute to the Man in Tavern, the Man understands what has happened to his son and asks Link to keep it. He then tells Link to play the Flute in front of the Weathercock in the center of Kakariko Village. Soon after Link complies with his request, the Flute Boy's Bird breaks out of the Weathercock and flies off. Whenever Link plays the Flute in the Light World from that point forward, the pet Bird can transport him to one of eight locations. The Flute is necessary in reaching the sixth Dark World dungeon, the Misery Mire.
