Red Tunic




Increased Defense
Attack 2x
More heat immunity


The Red Tunic is a special tunic only in the games A Link to the Past, Link's Awakening, and Ocarina of Time. It will empower Link in different ways.


A Link to the Past

Main article: Red Mail

The Red Tunic of A Link to the Past, also known as the Red Mail, increases Link's defensive power. It is found in Ganon's Tower and is the best mail of the game.

Link's Awakening

In Link's Awakening, the Red Tunic serves a completely different purpose from A Link to the Past. Instead of increasing Link's defense, it boosts his attack power. It is not required to complete the game and is optional to aquire. Link can only get this tunic in the DX version of the game in the Color Dungeon. After completing the dungeon, the Fairy Queen will give Link "the power of color", with the option to have more power or defense. The Red Tunic will grant double attack power, while the Blue Tunic gives double defense.

Ocarina of Time

Main article: Goron Tunic

Link obtains the Goron Tunic from the Goron leader Darunia's son. Link can also purchase one from the shop in Goron City. This special article of clothing is heat resistant and allows Link to survive in Death Mountain Crater, as well as enter the Fire Temple.
