The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Master Quest was a bonus game released on a promotional disc also containing the original Ocarina of Time. Master Quest was said by Nintendo to be the holy "Ura Zelda" that was supposed to be a 64DD extension disk, which it was...though some Zelda fans were a bit miffed that this amounted to a new logo and reworked dungeon object layouts.

This version would later be flipped horizontally and included as part of the Ocarina of Time 3D remake with minor changes.

Unused Locked Door

In the Water Temple, in the room with the big whirlpool and rolling boulders, there's a locked door which you would normally need a key to enter. However, the level designers mistakenly made that locked door correspond to the same bit in memory as the dragon head statues before Dark Link, resulting in the door being unlocked after you raise the dragon head statues.

Since the locked door is not normally reachable without going through the room with the dragon head statues, it is never seen. The corresponding key was left in, so most gamers assumed it was just an extra key since, after playing through the whole dungeon, there's no door left to unlock with it.

This glitch was fixed in Ocarina of Time 3D.

Misplaced Bushes


There are two grass objects outside the Deku Tree dungeon map: number 0125 and variable FF01. They are loaded in room #8, the brown room containing a Gold Skulltula.

Strange Objects in Jabu-Jabu's Belly


After fighting the sub-boss and climbing the elevator, the next room will have several objects hidden out-of-bounds. There are four stone Hookshot targets, two small boxes...and a cow?

This room (#05) also generates a Like-Like and a brown platform, but they do not appear because there are no actors for these objects.
