The Flippers,(LA | TMC)[1][name references needed] also known as the Zora's Flippers,(ALttP | OoS | OoA | ALBW | CoH)[1][2] are recurring Items in The Legend of Zelda series.

Location and Uses

A Link to the Past

The Zora's Flippers can be bought from King Zora for 500 Rupees at the Zora's Waterfall in A Link to the Past. They allow Link to swim in deep water and to use Whirlpool Waterways to warp between bodies of water. In the Game Boy Advance version, Link is able to dive underwater while swimming. This can be used to avoid enemy attacks and certain traps.

If the Zora Ring is worn, he can dive for an infinite length of time.

The Minish Cap

The Flippers can be found in a sewer underneath the Royal Hyrule Library after returning all the missing books in The Minish Cap. With the Flippers, Link is able to gain entrance to the Temple of Droplets at Lake Hylia.

A Link Between Worlds

Link receives the Zora's Flippers from Oren at Zora's Domain after returning the Smooth Gem stolen by the Shady Guy in A Link Between Worlds. They allow Link to swim and dive in deep water.

Other Appearances

Ancient Stone Tablets

In Ancient Stone Tablets, the Zora's Flippers can be bought from King Zora for 300 Rupees. If the Hero of Light talks to King Zora during a raining period, he will sell the Flippers for 150 Rupees instead. They allow the hero to swim in deep water, which is required to enter Level 2.

Cadence of Hyrule

In Cadence of Hyrule, the Zora's Flippers are received from the Prince after waking him up.[5] They allow the hero to swim in deep water like Lake Hylia, allowing easier access to the Frozen Grotto and general mobility around the map.[2]
