Bottles, also known as Magic Bottles in A Link to the Past,[1] are recurring items in The Legend of Zelda series.

Contents

Uses

Bottles are used to store various items inside for later usage. They are commonly used to store Potions, Fairies, Water, and Milk. In some games, Bottles are also used to store Poe Souls, Fish, Bugs, Great Fairy's Tears, Chu Jelly, and other various things. Some Bottles are obtained as rewards for completing certain sidequests or minigames, while others can be found through exploration. In some games, Bottles are required to progress through the story, usually to carry something inside them to take somewhere else. In most games, Link is able to collect only four Bottles. However, in Majora's Mask he is able to obtain six (seven in Majora's Mask 3D), and in both Skyward Sword and A Link Between Worlds, he can obtain five.

Empty Bottles can also deflect the attack of some bosses and mini-bosses, including Ganondorf in Ocarina of Time, Phantom Ganon in The Wind Waker, and Puppet Zelda in Twilight Princess.

Majora's Mask 3D

MM3D Empty Bottle Icon.png

In Majora's Mask 3D, one of the Bottles switched place with a Piece of Heart. An extra Bottle was also added, making seven Bottles total.

  • Dampé's Bottle is switched with the Piece of Heart Link can obtain from Koume by completing the Swamp Tour after beating the Woodfall Temple.
  • During the Second Day, Link wearing the Troupe Leader's Mask can talk to Gorman while he is sleeping at the Stock Pot Inn. Gorman requests Link to bring Mystery Milk from his brothers at the Gorman Track in the afternoon. While still wearing the mask, Link can obtain the Milk from the Gorman Brothers at any time after 12 PM. However, the Milk spoils after two real time minutes. If Link successfully delivers the Milk to Gorman, he will let him keep the Bottle. Link cannot roll as Goron Link or play the "Song of Soaring" while delivering the Milk, as doing so will spill it. The sidequest cannot be done in a cycle where Link plays the "Ballad of the Wind Fish" for Gorman on the first night.

  • Sold by the Business Scrub in Trilby Highlands for 20 Rupees.
  • Found inside a Treasure Chest in the Eastern Hills, south of Eenie and Meenie's garden. The chest appears after fusing Kinstones with Smith.
  • Obtained from Stockwell after feeding Fifi with Dog Food. Link must shrink down to Minish size to get to the back of Stockwell's Shop. There, he will give Link a Bottle with Dog Food. After giving Fifi the food inside Stockwell's house in Lake Hylia, he will be able to keep the Bottle.
  • Found inside a cave near Lon Lon Ranch. Link must first fuse Kinstones with Eenie to get a Goron to open the cave. He must then fuse Kinstones with five Mysterious Walls in order to call more Gorons and reach the end of the cave.

Canteen (Empty) Icon CD-i.png

In Link: The Faces of Evil and Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon, Canteens are Bottles used to carry Water of Life, which can be refilled once empty. In The Faces of Evil, Link receives a Canteen from Alora after returning her stolen Necklace from a Gleeok in Spearfish Falls. In The Wand of Gamelon, Zelda receives one from Lady Alma after saving her from Wizzrobe at the Shutoy Lake tower.

Canteen Icon CD-i.png

The Canteens can be refilled by Hamsha and the Fairies of Spearfish Falls in The Faces of Evil, as well by bottles of Water of Life found in Fortress Centrum, Glutko, Lupay, and Serigon Caves. In The Wand of Gamelon, it is refilled by the Fairies of the Fairy Pool. If no Canteen is present, then they will simply replenish Link and Zelda's health.

ZA EmptyBottle.png

In Zelda's Adventure, the Empty Bottle is a quest item given to Zelda by Glebb the thirsty woman. Zelda can take the Bottle to the River Source Pond to fill it with water, which turns it into the Water Bottle. The Bottle can then be taken back to Glebb, who will reward Zelda the Vial of Winds in gratitude. As the Bottle is a quest item, Zelda does not keep it and cannot use it to store healing water. Instead, Life Potions are purchased from merchants separately.

Hyrule Warriors Series

HW Bottle Icon.png

In Hyrule Warriors and Hyrule Warriors Legends, Potions and rescued Fairies are kept inside of Bottles in the inventory. When a Potion is all used up, its Bottle disappears from the inventory, and will only be refilled at the start of a new battle. Warriors may use Potions after crafting a Bottle Badge in the Bazaar, and more uses can be obtained by crafting additional Bottle Badges. Rescued Fairies are automatically kept in separate Bottles once they are rescued, and will disappear from the inventory along with their Bottle once used.

Link is also kept inside of a giant Bottle when using the Great Fairy weapon, as control switches over to the Great Fairy. In certain combo attacks, he will be momentarily released from the Bottle before shortly going back inside.
