The Shooting Gallery is a Mini-Game in The Legend of Zelda series. It made its debut in A Link to the Past.


A Link to the Past

"The ghostly proprietor of the Shooting Gallery offered visitors five shots at moving targets for 20 Rupees. If these visitors were sharpshooters, they could earn their Rupees back, and more. The prize started at four Rupees and doubled with each consecutive hit. If all five shots were good, the shooter would take in total winnings of 124 Rupees. "

"Sharpshooters Only
While the row of Shooting Gallery targets moved in one direction, hand-shaped obstacles in front of them moved in the other direction. Sharpshooters would wait until there was a long gap between the hands, then take aim and fire.

— Nintendo Power Player's Guide

The Shooting Gallery in A Link to the Past is found in the Village of Outcasts. It costs 20 Rupees to play a game. Link has five shots to shoot with. The more Link hits the targets, the more Rupees he gets.

Ocarina of Time

The Shooting Gallery in Ocarina of Time is found in Castle Town. It later moves to Kakariko Village because of Ganondorf's rule of Hyrule. It costs 20 Rupees to play a game.

As a child, Link uses the Fairy Slingshot when he plays. Link needs to hit every single Rupee to receive a larger Deku Seed Bullet Bag. Consecutive wins results in Link gaining 50 Rupees. As an adult, Link uses Bow and Arrows, and if he wins, he receives a larger Quiver. Link can also play without Bow and Arrows, but he only wins 50 Rupees.
