The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass Cheats

Hint: Time Manipulation & Money

Locate the Traveler’s Ship (the guy who gives you all of the treasure). Kill all of the enemies on board his ship, and then talk to him. After receiving the treasure, exit his ship and save your game. Turn off your DS, turn it back on, and head into the DS settings. Adjust the time and date (moving it forward one day, for instance), and restart your game. Return to the Traveler’s Ship, repeat the same process as before, and you’ll receive more treasure. Stock up using this method, and then go sell all of your goods. You can get 9,999 Rupees easily in about twenty minutes doing this.

Hint: Infinite Rupees

Here’s an easy way to get as many rupees as you desire. While sailing the seas, you may from time to time encounter jellyfish-like creatures. When these are encountered, the ship should be stopped (though they will follow the ship even if you don’t stop). Shoot these foes with the cannon (the cheapest cannon for your craft will only cost 50 rupees). When they are killed, they will drop a green rupee. Since they split apart when shot, you will be able to get multiple rupees per creature. Keep riding your ship around finding more of these creatures, and you can accumulate a good amount of rupees, as many as you’d like.

Hint: Fast Rupees

If you haven’t yet challenged Jolene to a final duel, go and find her. Battle her a couple of times. You will be rewarded with a large red rupee (worth 200 rupees) each time you do. This is especially useful for buying all of the 1,000 rupee items at Beedle’s and the Island Shops.

Hint: Acquire Fire Sword

To acquire the Fire Sword, get ten Fairies. Then, head to the Fairy Princess near the Sun Temple, where you will receive the sword.

Hint: Your Doppelganger

Climb aboard the ship called The Prince of the Red Lion, where a character suspiciously similar to Link can be found. You can fight him if you want, over and over again. Earning a certain amount of hits on him will net you new items. For instance, scoring under 100 hits in the time allotted will net you an item like a Pearl Necklace, or a Princess Crown. More than 100 hits will get you a better item, like a Heart Container.

Hint: Ship Parts

To grab new parts for your ship, you must fight the character on the ship The Prince of the Red Lion. If in the time given you manage to get 200 or more hits on the foe, he will give you a ship part. You can do this over and over again for new parts.

Hint: Acquire Hurricane Spin

Do the following series of fetch-quests to get the Hurricane Spin ability:

1.) Go to the traveler’s ship in the northeast section of the sea. Defeat the monsters you find there, and you will receive New Hero’s Clothes, as well as a Treasure Map.

2.) Take the clothes to another traveler’s ship, this one in the northwest section of the sea, and give them to the man there. He will give you the Kaleidoscope in return.

3.) Take your newfound Kaleidoscope to the traveler’s ship in the southeast section of the sea and give it to the man in want of a telescope. He will give you the Guard’s Notebook in return.

4.) Take this notebook to the traveler’s ship in the southwest section of the sea and give it to the man you find there to acquire the Wood Heart.

5.) Finally, take the Wood Heart to the Old Wayfarer’s Ship, and he will give you the scroll which will allow you to learn this technique!

Hint: Efficient Rupee Accumulation

A great way to accumulate rupees fairly quickly is to head to the Dee Ess Isle (which is an island on the map suspiciously shaped like a Nintendo DS Lite) once the Goron Game is available. Winning this game is easy once you’ve done it enough times, and going through the course given in thirty-five seconds will net you all sorts of goodies. Sometimes, you’ll get 200 rupees as a reward, which is good enough, but you’ll also sometimes get items, such as Zora’s Scales (which you can sell for 800 rupees), or Coral (which you can sell for a whopping 1,500 rupees). Easy money!

Hint: Ocean King Temple Cash

After obtaining the Phantom Sword, head to the Ocean King Temple. If you head to the middle area of the temple, you can fight Phantoms, destroying them by targeting their weak points with your sword. In room B7-9, after all of the Phantoms are defeated, a chest will appear with a ship part within. You can then go up the next three floors to get 100, 200, and 300 rupees. You can sell the part you got for more rupees if you desire. You can then be done over and over again, as needed.

Hint: Beedle’s Masked Ship

To find Beedle’s “Masked Ship”, which sells special inventory, you must visit the ship’s location between 10pm and midnight on weekdays and between 10am and noon on weekends (depending on your Nintendo DS’ internal clock settings). There’s valuable items on board, so be sure to find it!

Hint: 1,000 Rupees

After unlocking Spirit Island and acquire the shovel, try this to get 1,000 rupees easily. First, head to the Spirit Island, where you can destroy all boulders. Then, defeat all of the enemies, and cut down all of the grass. Then, dig around. And finally, enter the cave, break all of the vases, leave the cave, and repeat the steps. Doing this will net you all of the rupees you want… if you’re patient.

Hint: The Chicken Jump

If you’re having difficulty jumping to certain areas and need a little extra boost, try jumping with a chicken in Link’s hands. This will further your jump ability, allowing you to travel further than you otherwise would.

Hint: Salvaging Ship Parts

To attempt this, you must have a Cannon and a Salvage Arm on your ship. Head to the southwest section of the map, near Mercay Island. From here, you’ll want to head towards Goron Island, where the pirates seem to congregate. You can destroy the pirate vessels with your Cannon, and then use your Salvage Arm to take random parts from their sinking ship. You can do this over and over again, grabbing parts like this instead of purchasing them with your hard-earned Rupees.

Hint: Golden Ship Parts

If you manage to become a VIP Member of Beedle’s Shop, you will get 40% off of all of his merchandise. Occasionally, he’ll have golden ship parts available, which will be much more affordable than usual with a 40% discount.

Easter Egg: Animal Crossing Reference

If you’ve played Animal Crossing: Wild World, then you’ll recognize a reference in Phantom Hourglass. When you first meet the Postman, you and he will talk for a moment. He’ll ask you that you try not to shoot him with the slingshot out of the air. This is in reference to Pete the Postman in AC:WW, who suffers a similar fate that the Postman in PH is trying to avoid!




  1. i need help finding a bomb bag, also finding the cannon. if you can help me please email me at my email address.

    • Ok, no probs, Ive emailed you the solution, and i hope it helps 🙂

  2. Hey do you know how to get the bow and arrows?

    • I think it is in the temple of courage. It isn’t very hard to obtain. the temple kind of leads you to it as there is usually only one way to go when you are playing through it the first time.

  3. im on boss fight crayk

  4. im trying to get the pure metals HOW DO YOU GET THEM?!?

  5. I’m stuck. I’m on Molida Island, and no matter what I do, all Romaros says “What’s up little guy? Huh, the Ghost Ship?That’s the big talk among the fishermen lately. Don’t know if it’s treasure you seek, but don’t get any crazy ideas in your head!” and nothing else! I’m getting pretty frustrated. Any luck that you could help me?

    • How about cheacking out my Phantom Hourglass Guide page. That might help. If not, I’m sure someone will know what to do.
