Natzu Wasteland is one of the three possible landscapes of Natzu in Oracle of Seasons. The region of Natzu will vary, depending on which Animal Companion Link has acquired. Natzu Wasteland will only exist if Link has Moosh as a companion. If Link has Ricky, then there will be the Natzu Prairie. With Dimitri, it will be the Natzu River.
The Natzu Wasteland covers a large amount of land in the center part of Holodrum. To the South, it borders North Horon, Eyeglass Lake, and a small portion of the Holodrum Plain. To the west and north lies the Temple Remains. Also to the north, the Goron Mountain can be found. To the east, Link will find Moblin's Keep, which Link must travel through to reach the Sunken City. At the northeast corner of the region, a small portion of the Natzu Wasteland connects with Mt. Cucco.
Natzu Wasteland features arid terrain with tons of pitfalls throughout the region. Much like other arid regions such as the Western Coast and Eastern Coast, the Natzu Wasteland is filled with Palm Trees. The pitfalls found throughout the region will require Link to uses Moosh's flight ability. Throughout the region, Link will encounter a number of enemy Leevers and Tektites, but neither should give Link much trouble.
Link can initially reach the Natzu Wasteland from two different routes. At the northeast corner of North Horon, there is path that leads to the Wasteland and Link will need to use Moosh to fly over the small pits. Alternatively, at the northwest corner of North Horon, Link can use Roc's Feather to leap over a small hole and enter the region. At the western portion of Natzu Wasteland, Link can hit a switch, extending a bridge to the west that easily connects the region to the Holodrum Plain and the Temple Remains.
Whether Link is traveling through Natzu Wasteland, Natzu Prairie, or the Natzu River, he will encounter three different caves along his journey. The caves are all identical, but their actual locations will vary, depending on which region Link is in.
Right near the center of the Wasteland, a second cave can be found next to some pits. Inside, Link will find a Deku Scrub. If Link speaks with the Scrub, he'll find that he loves seeds and also loves singing. If Link agrees that the song he sings is a great song, the Deku Scrub will fill up all of the seeds in Links Seed Satchel.
After Link has learned the Deku Secret from the Deku Scrub found in the Deku Forest within Oracle of Ages, he can return to this cave in Oracle of Seasons. After telling the Deku Scrub in the Natzu region the Deku Secret, the Deku Scrub will upgrade the carrying capacity of Link's Seed Satchel. The upgrade will boost Link's carrying capacity to 50 seeds or 99 seeds, depending on whether he has acquired the first upgrade.
The third cave in the Natzu region does not differ, regardless of which terrain of Natzu is present. This cave is located on a narrow strip of land at the base of Goron Mountain. Link will need to swim over to this small area of land to access the cave. Inside, Link can cross a trio of moving platforms to reach a Treasure Chest that contains 50 Rupees.
- Link can reach the Natzu region before ever encountering any of the Animal Companions. If he does so, Natzu Prairie will be the default region.
- Natzu is one of the few regions in Oracle of Seasons that does not have a Tree Stump. Thus, it remains Spring at all times. Ironically, the term Natzu is derived from the Japanese for Summer.
- In Oracle of Ages, the Nuun Highlands have similar characteristics as the Natzu region in that the landscape will different, depending on which Strange Flute Link has acquired.
