The Roc's Feather is a recurring item in The Legend of Zelda series. Named from a large mythological bird, it allows Link to jump momentarily. It is of most use when avoiding ground-based attacks and jumping over small voids. When paired up with the Pegasus Boots, the jump effect is increased.

"Roc's Feather
This legendary treasure has been handed down from olden times on Koholint Island. This magical Feather makes the bearer a body much lighter and allows him to jump very high. The jumping ability bestowed by this Feather is useful for avoiding enemy attacks or jumping over pits.

In Link's Awakening, the Roc's Feather is found in the first dungeon, Tail Cave, in a Treasure Chest. Link can use it to reach items floating above his head such as Recovery Hearts and Magic Powder, and he can jump over pits. It is invaluable in the side-scrolling areas of the game.

The Roc's Feather can be found in the Poison Moth's Lair.

Oracle of Ages

The Roc's Feather can be found in the Wing Dungeon. It will give Link the ability to jump to higher places and over small gaps.

Four Swords Adventures

The Roc's Feather can be obtained on various stages around Hyrule. As in previous games, it gives the player the ability to jump. Pressing B while in mid-air will have Link swoop downward quickly with his sword.[1] It can be upgraded at a Great Fairy Fountain to Level 2, which will allow the Links to double jump.[2]


The Roc's Feather is named after the Roc, a type of mythical gigantic bird.
