Ocarina of Time’s Secret Pot

ChristinaDecember 23rd, 2012 by Christina

As Zelda fans, we are built to uncover every secret that the games hold for us. We check every nook and cranny, we explore every corner of the world, and we break all the pots and open all the chests in hopes of discovering something that is not immediately obvious to the player. But, no matter how good you are at uncovering those secrets, there is a chance that you missed something.

The video game facts website Did You Know Gaming recently posted a new one about a secret pot in Ocarina of Time. While some of you may know where it is, there are probably plenty of you who do not. Make the jump to discover the pot.

I never knew a second pot existed inside of that house, but I rarely go into the houses when I play Ocarina of Time anymore. Even if I did, I doubt I would have noticed part of Link disappearing behind an invisible pot.

Have any of you ever noticed or suspected a second pot being there? If not, will you go try and discover it now? Let us know in the comments!

    • pianomancuber

      You spelled N64 really weird.

      • YuSoStupid

      • Midnafan

        isn’t OoT on the set for Gamecube? :/

      • hero of awesome

        Um, theres a gamecube version too

      • Linkfan99

        I don’t have an N64, I have a Gamecube with OoT. I also have master quest. They make it for Gamecube too.

        • firecrb

            YES! Me, too. BLack Friday special at Walmart a few yrs back. UBER win

  • hcpaki95

    Haha I never noticed that… never really explored the houses in the forest that thoroughly

    • Midnafan

      i just went in there for the rupees… :/

      • Norm the Conqueror

        Ahh, fond memories of my first OoT playthrough, where I mined that room’s 2 pots until I had enough to buy that dang shield.

        • Midnafan

          lol me too. But I was also following the ZD guide so my memories aren’t as fond. Beat the game with 100% completion though, something I rarely manage :)

        • hcpaki95

          Haha rightt – the shield ^.^ I ran alllllll over the forest to get rupees for that one – actually, I had several spots I went to every time. I knew there were 10 rupees behind this house, another 5 or so on top of that one, and a few more if I walked along that bridge that extended above… and then I raided the houses for the rest :D

  • Triforce Snatcher

    its crazy how many secrets that have been uncovered in Zelda, I’m sure that there will be lots more to come

    • christburner

      seriously 13 years old and were still finding out about things in game.

  • Forlork

    I always noticed link disappearing right there in the house, but I never suspected to be because of a 2nd pot. I just assumed it was one of the many wonders of n64 graphics…

  • itsameluigi1290

    I didn’t know about this!

  • http://www.facebook.com/emilio.valle.5 Emilio Valle

    if the second pot is true check it out on oot 3ds

    • Zack Patterson

      Nope only one pot and no glitch.
      and actually looks like a physical object.

      • Mikau94

        That’s probably because they redid the insides of houses and Hyrule market so that there would be 3D objects in them instead of painted backgrounds

    • Nintendocan

      The only version it isn’t in is OoT 3D.

      • Midnafan

        damn.

  • Terry

    I misread the title as secret plot and was very confused.

    • Midnafan

      That’s what I thought it was at first, then they started talking about pots, and I’m like “oh… well that’s a hell lot less interesting” :(

    • OwnerofTriforce

      Haha, so did I! “…what does this have to with the pl- Oooooooh!”

    • hcpaki95

      Haha yeah same thing happened to me xD I was like “woahh a secret plot in Ocarina?!” annddd then I was like oh. I see, a pot…

    • Emma Mix

      Same here, I got so excited and then I’m like, “Oh. It’s just… a pot. WOOOWWW…”

  • That Guy

    I used this in a video to help prove a point about pre-rendered graphics a few years back

  • ocarinahero

    this is old i saw it on the website a while ago

  • zombie_eat_flesh

    Don’t misread the title.

    • BlackRaven6695

      That’s exactly what happened to me…

    • hcpaki95

      Hahaha yeah I was like “Secret Plot? In Ocarina? WHAAAAT?” :0

      ….and then I clicked it and it was about.. a pot… haha

  • Midnafan

    I don’t think I ever really cared, but if that works on the 3D version I might just check it out when I (eventually) do MasterQuest…. You guys all know that means I’ll probably never do it right? :”(

  • Mikau94

    I found that spot when I was trying to get out of the Kokiri Forest early. I had broken the sign that triggers the glitch so I ran into the twins house to make the sign reset and found it. I thought the wall was messed up.

  • Me

    I misread it at first and thought it said plot, then I misread it and read pot. Like pot the drug. OOPS.

    • radioactivehylian

      Haha same thing here ! xD

  • christburner

    haha….hidden pot….. ;)

  • Taylor

    wow someone has too much time on their hands

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/bs88145 bs8814

    How very interesting

  • Tehlul

    It’s a conspiracy.

  • Squadalacarpetguy

    Does anybody else read the DYK facts for Zelda in Egoraptor’s voice?

    • The Hylian Monolith

      No, but I sometimes read it as GlaDos.

  • Krukmeister

    Parts of Link disappearing behind the pot? What parts..?

  • MsNerrrrrd

    You know when you’re a huge Zelda- fan when you get all excited about a hidden pot…

  • Oli98987

    WOW…..
    I had no idea there was a second pot!
