    Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Glitches

    Skip The Skull Woods Boss Glitch

    Location: During the Skull Woods boss fight.

    To perform this glitch, just follow these steps:
    1. Equip the tornado rod
    2. When the hand is ready to charge, use the tornado rod to fly up in the air
    3. As you land back down, press Up on the joypad.

    If you fail the timing, just try again. It might be possible to perform this glitch without the tornado rod, but not sure how hard it would be.

    This glitch will be very useful and helpful to speed runners, and should at least save you 15 – 30 seconds. This glitch may also lead to other similar door glitches. If you can find an enemy that is not affected by the tornado rod, and pushes you against a wall, you might be able to use this same glitch to skip the fight.

    Here’s the full glitch & how to perform it in the game:

    Here’s what happens if you return to the boss room (you can still get the heart piece):

    Desert Palace Boss Glitch

    Location: If you enter the Desert Palace boss fight area early, the boss will not appear.

    To perform this sequence break, just follow these steps:
    1. Use the portal clipping glitch, you can find a place to take advantage of the glitch near the Desert Palace boss area. Sadly you can’t even damage the boss, but if the boss functioned properly we would have saved at least 5-10 minutes during a speed run.
    2. Idle sand is 1 ‘block’ higher than active quicksand and after triggering the quicksand there is a invisible yet solid model nearby the middle part of the area. Possibly it is the model but you can’t do anything to damage it.

    Here’s the glitch video that shows how to get it to happen:

      For the early desert temple boss glitch, the reason the boss cant be damaged is cuz the door isnt open, not sure if its possible, but maybe if u use to glitch to somehow go back towards the boss door and open it with the key, the boss could be fought, but this is rather pointless because it would be so much easier to just open the door normally by the time the key is gotten

      Dark Palace… I thought you were supposed to get to the top floor, bomb the 3 boarded up windows, go back to the main boss door room and hit the crystal switch to shine light all all 4 targets. I bombed all 3 windows and hit the crystal switch. The top left target is still dark!!! I’ve retraced all my steps… Bombing the window was supposed to shine light on that target right? idgi

      The top-left eye is also being blocked by a bit of cracked floor on 1F.
