The Waterfall of Wishing is a location in A Link to the Past.[1]

Features and Overview

The Waterfall of Wishing is a large waterfall that can be found at the northeastern corner of Lake Hylia, partway between the Witch's Hut and Zora's River.[2] The Waterfall of Wishing is home to a Great Fairy who is known to be a friend of Venus.[3] By swimming up the center of the waterfall, Link can access a secret which contains a small pond known as the Mysterious Pond.[4] Walking up to this pond asks if Link wants to throw something in. Any item the hero throws in will be returned by the Great Fairy dwelling within the pond, but certain items will be improved upon return if Link answers the Fairy's questions honestly.[5] The Boomerang will be replaced with the Magical Boomerang, a Fighter's Shield will be replaced with a Red Shield, and a Bottle will be filled with Medicine of Magic.
