The Golden Scale is an item in Ocarina of Time, an enhanced version of the Silver Scale.

Ocarina of Time

The Golden Scale enables Link to dive up to nine metres deep into water, three metres deeper than the Silver Scale, before needing a breath of air. Although this item is very useful, it is not necessary to complete the game.

The Golden Scale is given to Link by the owner of the Fishing Pond as a reward for presenting him with a fish of 13 pounds or more in weight.

Link can use it in the Lakeside Laboratory to obtain a Piece of Heart - by diving to the bottom of the pool inside the laboratory, the Lake Scientist will award Link a Piece of Heart.

Hyrule Warriors

Main article: Zora Scale (Hyrule Warriors)

The Golden Scale is the second version of Ruto's Zora Scale weapon in Hyrule Warriors. While it resembles the Golden Scale from Ocarina of Time, albeit smaller and worn on a bracelet, it allows Ruto to manipulate water and "swim" over land, rather than dive deeper.
