"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. You can only get this tunic in the DX version of this game in the Color Dungeon. After completing the dungeon, the Great Fairy will give Link an option to have more power or defense. The Blue Tunic will grant him double defense, while the Red Tunic doubles his attack.
Ocarina of Time
- Main article: Zora Tunic
Link acquires the Zora Tunic from King Zora in return for unfreezing him. He 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 will gain him access to the Water Temple.
