How to Obtain The Flippers (Cadence of Hyrule Guide)

The waters of Hyrule are calling.

A familiar 2D Zelda dilemma: the aspiring hero destined to save Hero is unable to swim! Cadence of Hyrule puts us through a similar predicament, and the solution here is the same as it was then: obtaining a pair of Flippers! We should emphasize that the Flippers are not required to finish the game, but it’ll certainly make your adventure a lot easier. (Especially with the watery Frozen Grotto dungeon just around the corner) Moreover, for completionists seeking to plunder all of Hyrule’s treasures, it’s an absolute must. Let’s get to it!

So, where is it?

The Zora home of Lake Hylia, naturally! While Cadence of Hyrule’s overworld is randomly-generated, we can tell you it’s always directly south of Hyrule Castle. Just in case, observe the above screenshot above to ensure you’re on the right track. Once you’ve hopped onto the hill via the stone tiles, head down into the beach cave to stumble across a most peculiar sight…

A bunch of silent Zora ghosts watching over a slumbering Zora Prince. Zoinks!

Alright, so what do I do?

As seen above, you may notice that one of the ghosts doesn’t have a reflection. Speak to him, and he’ll go on some totally-not-creepy spiel about how the prince “belongs to us now.” Whatever their nefarious purposes may be, this cannot stand, so naturally, we must bomb him. Yeah, an obtuse solution, but while them’s the breaks, be careful how you do it: remember that your rhythm movement’s delayed within watery spaces, so ensure your placement provides an instant escape from the blast.flippers cadence of hyrule

Once the apparition’s destroyed, the Zora ghost will unveil its true identity as a green Ghast! This ghoul’s tricky teleportation make it a tricky foe, so maintain your rhythm between attacking and shield-raising. Keep to the beat, and he’ll go down soon enough.

Time for some swimming!

Grateful for your rescue, the Zora Prince will grant you a well-earned pair of Flippers! The waters of Hyrule are yours to explore. but why not add some diving into the mix? Down at the beach, a Zora shopkeeper’s selling some Snorkels for 80 rupees, so hop on down to further develop your swimming skills.
