"You've got the Blue Clothes! Your damage will be reduced by half!"
In Link's Awakening, the Blue Tunic serves a completely different purpose than in Ocarina of Time. Firstly, it is not required to complete the game and is optional to acquire. Link can only get this tunic in the DX version of this game in the Color Dungeon. After completing the dungeon, the Great Fairy gives Link an option to have more power or defense. The Blue Tunic grants him double defense, while the Red Tunic doubles his attack. As a result of the game not having the ability to show damages of quarter a heart, it is advisable to choose the Blue Tunic, making Link invincible to all enemies who do damages of half a heart.
Ocarina of Time

Link acquires the Zora Tunic from King Zora in return for unfreezing him. Link can also purchase one from the Zora Shop for a fee of 300 Rupees. This tunic allows Link to breathe and survive underwater. In addition, this tunic gains him access to the Water Temple.
