Venus is a character from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. She is queen of the Fairies who resides in the Pond of Happiness at Lake Hylia. When Link approaches the pond, he has the opportunity to throw in 5 or 20 Rupees. Once Link has thrown in 100 or more Rupees, Venus appears and gives Link the choice to increases either the amount of Bombs or Arrows that he can hold by 5. Link can then throw Rupees in at increments of 25 or 50. For every 100 Rupees thrown in, Venus will further upgrade Link's Bombs or Arrows. The final upgrade increases Link's carrying capacity by an increment of 10 instead of 5, reaching a maximum of 50 Bombs and 70 Arrows. If Link asks to increase his capacity for an already maxed out item, Venus is unable to help, returns his Rupees, and tells him that her friend in the Waterfall of Wishing may be able to help him.
In Roman mythology, Venus is the goddess of love, beauty, and fertility.
