Fly With Rooster While In Water

When in the water normally you can only dive by pressing B but if you have the power bracelet equipped move to the next screen then almost immediately press B to pick the Rooster up and you will be flying even though you were in the water. This is handy if you don't want to swim to a latter to get out and you see a bridge near you to get on (like where the monkeys built you a bridge).

Chicken Frenzy

If you find a chicken and you are bored start hitting it with your sword for a while and a whole bunch of chickens will come flying and attack you. The only way to stoopit is if you turn the game off or leave that area.

Save 90% On Raft Ride Cost

When you go to the raft ride on Link's Awakening DX talk to the guy he will say it costs 100 rupees. Pay the money and go to the raft. Once you are at the very last part of the ride as you fall down the waterfall save and quit. If you had 999 rupees at first then now you will have not 899 but 989.

How To Beat The Third Level Boss

When you enter the boss chamber, you will notice that all of these green blobs will fall down around you. Then you want to equip the Pegasus Boots and ram the wall, when you do that the boss will fall down. When the boss falls down, there is this big giant eye in the middle, walk up to the eye and hit it with your sword until it is almost apart. then equip the Pegasus boots and sword. Next run towards the middle part and ram your sword into the thin part of the boss and he'll turn into two little blobs. Every time you hit one of those they will go up in the air and try to squash you, if you hit the two blobs enough they'll die and you con get the next instrument.

Mean Marin

If you have Marin with you and you have her song play it and she will insult you this is pretty funny it will work as long as Marin is with just keep playing as you wish. Note: This is not part of the game it is just for fun.
