A Link to the Past
- Main article: Red Mail
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 acquire. 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.
