The Golden Gauntlets are an item from Ocarina of Time. They serve as a strength boost to Link's ability in lifting objects — it is similar to the Goron's Bracelet, but it is used by Adult Link. The Golden Gauntlets are an upgrade from the Silver Gauntlets. They are found in the Shadow section of Ganon's Castle in the final stages of the game.
The gauntlets are used to lift heavy stone blocks that block paths. Most of the stone blocks are in Ganon's Castle, although there is one outside of it, blocking the path to a Great Fairy Fountain, where a Great Fairy will boost Link's defense power.
