Destroying everything around Link


A sign near the Lake of Ill Omen warns passerby not to throw anything into the nearby circle of stones. Being the daring soul that he is, Link should throw something into the circle. A strange fish will try to bribe Link into leaving him alone by giving him the Quake Medallion. Using it causes the earth to shake violently. Link can gain entrance to Turtle Rock by using Quake.

"A shy water resident will give up the Quake Medallion."

A Link to the Past Nintendo Player's Guide

"Crunch! Link thrusts his sword deep into the Hylian crust to activate the Quake Spell. The ground will shake with tremendous force."

A Link to the Past Nintendo Player's Guide

The Quake Medallion is an item from A Link to the Past and Four Swords Adventures.

A Link to the Past


The Quake Medallion is one of three Medallions that can be found in the game and is one of two Medallions required to complete the game. The Medallion allows Link to do a jump strike in the ground, rumbling the entire screen. The Medallion is required to enter Turtle Rock.

To obtain the Quake Medallion, Link must first obtain the Book of Mudora. Next, he must venture to the Lake of Ill Omen. If Link throws something in the ring of rocks there, a Catfish living there will give Link the Quake Medallion to make Link go away.

Four Swords Adventures

The Quake Medallion appears alongside the Bombos Medallion on select stages. It will turn all enemies in the area into Zols. According to a mage at Death Mountain Foothills, mages around Hyrule create these medallions.[1]



  1. "Oh ho ho ho... Such youth... Troubled by the giants, are you? We magic users have enchanted two types of medallion. These medallions instantly alter the shape of an evil presence or make it vanish. One of these medallions is in that treasure chest there. It's one that I enchanted myself. You may use it if you like." — Mage, Four Swords Adventures.
