I recall reading somewhere that the Bomb Arrows in LA were originally a glitch, rather than an intentional feature. Anyone have any idea what that was all about? I can't seem to find any articles saying as such, but I'm pretty sure I remember it from something... Dazuro (talk) 01:23, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
I read that they could be made by dropping a bomb at the same time as firing an arrow. Baltro [ talk · edits ] 01:24, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
Yes, that's how it works. But I seem to recall that the programmers didn't originally intend for that to be possible. I was hoping someone else might have a source or something else to say on that subject. Dazuro (talk) 01:26, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
We don't source or cite stuff here unless necessary, but this is good enough: Baltro [ talk · edits ] 01:27, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
Xykeb Zraliv– 2. And the Prince turned to the Innkeeper’s guest, and he said “You I shall not let live, for once before have I made this warning, and still my Soul aches with what is done to the wood that is my Soul, and I will spare no Man who injures me in this way.” TALK– it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts
Actually, I recall that somewhere in the game, there's a cave with a gap and a cracked rock on the other side that could only be destroyed with a Bomb Arrow (I think the only way across was to use the Flying Cucco, unless I missed something else that could have gotten me across). I couldn't think of any other way to destroy it, and that way made sense to me. I could be wrong about the Bomb Arrows being the only way, though.
Baltro, you seem to completely be missing the point here. I'm not asking if they exist, I'm asking if they're a glitch. XZ: I don't know exactly what you're talking about, but I suspect it's possible by picking up a bomb, waiting for it to flash, then throwing it so that it explodes before it falls down below the rock.

Xykeb Zraliv– 3. And with those words the King threw down the Prince and stripped away his vestments, and the Prince once again became the Arrogant Man. TALK– it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts
I tried that, the gap was too long. I think it was somewhere in Tal Tal Heights, but I don't remember where. Maybe I'll look for it in a little while, and if I find it, I'll let you know.
Interesting. I hope you're right, because I'd rather not think that my favorite weapon was an accidental creation. :P Dazuro (talk) 01:33, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
In my opinion, it looks too difficult to simply fire a bomb arrow in LA. Pressing both buttons at the same time seems simple, but unintended. And if the game never explicitly calls for them, then I have to assume it's a glitch. Baltro [ talk · edits ] 01:36, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
To be fair, the game also requires you to press all four buttons simultaneously to save. XykebYvolixZraliv 01:49, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
Xykeb Zraliv– 10. “And after you learned the true purpose of the Bridge, you had the audacity to subvert my will. Weakly you sought to avert your destiny and the destinies of others.” TALK– it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts
Ok, I can't find that cave anywhere. I'm so sure it's somewhere in the game, but I just can't remember where it is.
I think that it's on Turtle Rock, we must fire it on a wall to open it(duh), but you can just jump it. BUT it's possible to open it from the other side(the other side is dark)
I still don't think that is a glitch, becuse it's too easy to fire a Bomb Arrow, the mistake is press both A and B at the SAME time, we must press the bomb button a bit early!
I have the prima guide for it and it talks about using the bomb arrow as a weapon and nothing about it being a glitch.--Ironknuckle1 21:02, November 12, 2009 (UTC)
Xykeb Zraliv– 2. And the King was greatly wrathful, and He said to the Prince, “Why have you returned, O Prince? You, who would betray his King, who would defy his own Flesh?” TALK– it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts
Alright, clarification here. I just saw a video showing how to get that Piece of Heart, turns out there's a secret bombable wall that leads to an area where you can throw a bomb to blow up the cracked block across the gap. There is no place where the Bomb Arrows are necessary. That still doesn't mean that they're a glitch, however.
First off I think that possability of them in Links Awakening being a glitch should be mentioned and if no one gives reasons why it shouldnt then ill revert the revertion. And should they go the infobox for spirit tracks? They arent used by Link in that game and the only other situation like it I can think of is Ball and Chain which just covers the item apperance OniDark Link 18:27, February 6, 2010 (UTC)
Seeing is that they do appear in ST, the only problem is that should we add Spirit Tracks too the appearance section, even though it is not possible for Link to use them in-game, and should we add a the STNav?
The only other parallels I can think of is the Ball and Chain which just covers its item apperance and Fire Arrows which have a Twilight Princess section but like here dont have a Nav category or info box mention. So it seems we shouldnt give it a nav and the rest but keep info about it on the page. OniDark Link 08:14, March 25, 2010 (UTC)
