Arwings are unused enemies in Ocarina of Time.[1][2][3]


The Arwing is the vehicle used by the Star Fox Team in the Star Fox series. In Ocarina of Time, an unused enemy Arwing can be found by modifying the game's data, either by hacking or using a cheat device. When Link enters an area with an Arwing, a small cutscene will play showing the ship appearing. The Arwing will then proceed to fly around the area and attack Link with its lasers.

The Arwing was used to test the flight patterns of Volvagia.[1] It was left in ports of the game to the Nintendo GameCube and Virtual Console, but is not present in Ocarina of Time 3D.

  • The Arwing's lasers use the same sound effects as Phantom Ganon's energy balls. When the Arwing is shot down, the sound of a Dodongo inhaling is heard.
