The Lens of Truth is an item in Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask. It allows Link to see invisible objects and other hidden items.[1] It shows objects such as ghosts or hidden ladders at the expense of magic power.[2][3]


Ocarina of Time

In Ocarina of Time, the Lens of Truth is obtained in the Bottom of the Well after defeating Dead Hand. It can be used in the Treasure Chest Shop in Hyrule Castle Town Market in order to complete the game to be awarded a Piece of Heart. When Link hears gossip from a Gossip Stone near the Temple of Time, it says it is illegal to use any lens in the Treasure Chest Game.

Majora's Mask

In Majora's Mask, the Lens of Truth is found in the "floating" cave east of the Goron Village. Link is helped by Kaepora Gaebora who shows Link the way by dropping his feathers on the invisible ice platforms. It leads to the cave where it is to be found. When Link walks out of the cave, he can find Darmani when using the Lens of Truth. He becomes surprised that Link can see him, and then wants Link to follow him to his resting place. Once they have arrived at Darmani's grave, he asks Link to "heal his sorrows". If Link plays the Song of Healing, he obtains the Goron Mask.
