- This article consists of information about general caves. For other uses, see Cave (Disambiguation).
Caves are hidden, underground, or enclosed areas found throughout The Legend of Zelda series. They are often filled with enemies and have a valuable item towards the end of the cave.
Caves are often dark areas that Link cannot see with just his eye. At times, he will need to use a Candle or a Lantern to make the cave visible. Often times, Caves serve as gateways connecting various parts of the overworld. Other times, Caves lead to secret, valuable items such as a Piece of Heart or high value Rupees. In some rare cases, a cave may contain an item that is required to progress.
