The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time/Unused Text

From The Cutting Room Floor
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a sub-page of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

To do:
Keep integrating the dummied-out messages into the article main body, add further info about unused lines.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time contains a number of unused messages. Each of the game's messages is linked to a four-digit hex identifier, available here. See if you can find more unused entries by using a text dump!

Almost every message has a developer comment attached to it in Japanese and English to help identify the text and occasionally provide hints to the localizers, such as indicating the tone of a speaker or confirming who is doing the talking. These comments have been sourced from the iQue leaks. It is unclear who wrote the comments and at what point in development they were written, but the English comments seem to be based on an older version of the Japanese comments. To highlight the occasional differences and keep the page clean, an unofficial translation of the Japanese comment is provided in the "Dev. Note (J)" column, rather than the original text.

You'd think this would be used if you happened to be in possession of the Giant's Knife when completing the fetch quest for the Biggoron's Sword, but it isn't. Instead, line 000C is used, which says "You handed in the Claim Check and got the Biggoron's Sword!" The developer note attached to it reads "Biggoron's Sword Obtained w/o Giant's Knife".

In the final game, the Giant's Knife can be bought from Medigoron as an adult for 200 rupees. It's unclear whether this indicates that the Giant's Knife was once part of the trading quest, and if it took the place of or could be used instead of the Claim Check to trade for the Biggoron's Sword.

This message is identical to 00B4, which is displayed when you destroy a Gold Skulltula. Since the note on the used line is "Gold Skulltula Destroyed, Name Unknown", it appears the message would've changed somehow, perhaps after talking to the man in the House of Skulltula.

The slingshot Shooting Gallery is located in the Market during the Child Era, while the bow Shooting Gallery is located in Kakariko Village during the Adult Era. Despite this location's changing nature, it uses a single scene file. The map it exits to, the actors and objects loaded, and the era it corresponds to change depending on in-game circumstances. As such, it is not possible to legitimately access the slingshot Shooting Gallery as an adult, and even if you do, the proprietor won't say this line, anyway.

This message is linked to an unused door variable. The door is slightly ajar, but slams shut according to its own volition when Link approaches it. If Link tries to open it, the message below appears.

These doors may have been present in a demo version of the game available in Seattle at an event called the 1998 Toy Test, which took place in July and August 1998. According to a contemporary account of a Zelda fan known as David C., when he visited Kakariko Village as Adult Link, most of the doors in the village were open, but, when Link approached them, they were slammed shut in his face.

When you catch a Big Poe, the used message 508F is displayed, which reads "You caught a Big Poe! Sell it at the Ghost Shop for a lot of money!" The developer note for the used message reads "Big Poe Caught". This, along with the dummied-out Big Poe shop message, suggests that it was possible to obtain a Big Poe without catching it yourself.

Oddly, only this message displays a Big Poe icon, while 508F (unlike other "caught" messages) does not.

The name of this file suggests that Navi messages were once prefixed with 80xx.

Additionally, the fact that unused line 012D is labeled "Dungeon 6 Hint 6", and unused line 013F is labeled "Dungeon 8 Hint 8" suggests that dungeon hints once occupied IDs 0100 to 013F, with 8 hints for each of 8 dungeons. The hints are no longer categorized in this fashion, with some dungeons having more hints than others, and numbering being inconsistent.

It would seem originally there were fake flags present in the Haunted Wasteland and you would have to use the Lens of Truth to make them disappear. In the final game, all the flags are real.

However, this condition is impossible to legitimately fulfill. In order to reach Zora's Domain, Bombs are required.

Navi Dungeon Hints II

0180 - 01B1

This Navi message wasn't deliberately left unused. It was supposed to pop up in the spinning scythe room in the Ice Cavern, but the developers added a staircase over the actor responsible for triggering it, rendering it inaccessible. Oops.

Also, while the mention of an "Ice Temple" might be exciting, it is likely that it is a mistaken copy-and-paste from the developers' notes around it, which say "Shadow Temple Adult". It also appears to be a one-off, as other Ice Cavern hints are labeled "Ice Cavern".

A comment from Navi that is programmed to the totem statue blocking the door that leads out of the Megaton Hammer room in the Fire Temple. The actor object to trigger this Navi hint must be the same height or below the player. However, it was programmed one unit higher (likely a developer mistake). This is therefore impossible to trigger in normal gameplay. If you hack the actor position to be one unit lower, it can be triggered.

A message spoken by Phantom Ganon!

The "gap between dreams and reality" may be linked to the alternate dimension referred to in the boss's full title, 異次元悪霊ファントムガノン (Evil Spirit From Another Dimension: Phantom Ganon). Additionally, the "dream" bit may be a reference to Phantom Ganon manifesting himself as the villain that haunts Link's nightmares.

Kaepora Gaebora says this when you make him repeat what he said in front of the stairs to Kakariko Village.

An unused explanation regarding the use of Bomb Flowers. In Japanese, the speaker has a stutter, which seems to be characteristic of the Goron Shop proprietor.

Apparently, after your first encounter with Princess Zelda, you were originally meant to visit her again after obtaining the Goron's Ruby, but prior to acquiring Zora's Sapphire. This prompt to return to the castle was removed from the final game, but Zelda does still have unique dialogue if you pay her an optional visit with the Ruby.

Kaepora Gaebora is still programmed to display this message in Zora's River if you talk to him after learning Saria's Song, but before learning Zelda's Lullaby. However, this situation isn't possible in regular gameplay, as you can't leave the Castle Courtyard without obtaining Zelda's Lullaby and you need Zelda's Letter for Kaepora to appear and Saria to move to the Sacred Forest Meadow.

An unused line for the Gerudo stationed in front of the entrance to the Training Ground. In the final game, if you try to approach or interact with any Gerudo before obtaining the Gerudo's Membership Card, they just arrest you on the spot. In addition to this unused line, the description for the Membership Card only states that it allows you to "[...] get into the Gerudo's training ground in their hideout." This suggests that, originally, the card may have simply granted you admission to the training ground, rather than allowing you to roam freely around the entire fortress.
