Pitfalls
Some of the treacherous walkways in the dungeon are not fenced. If you stray from these paths, you may fall into a bottomless pit and return to the entrance of the room. Some holes are not bottomless - a fall into one of these will land you in the room below.


Oracle of Seasons

Link can use the Roc's Feather and the Roc's Cape to jump over Pits.[8]

Oracle of Ages

Link can use the Roc's Feather and the Switch Hook to cross gaps formed by Pits.[9]

Four Swords Adventures



The Minish Cap

Holes appear throughout Hyrule and in Dungeons in The Minish Cap. If Link falls into one with no visible bottom, it will damage him; however, some Holes have a view of a lower floor, making them safe for Link to fall into and placing him on the lower floor. Some puzzles require Link to retrieve Small Keys that have fallen into Holes.
