Pots, also known as Jars and Vases, are objects found in most games in the Zelda series.
When broken, Pots reveal items such as Rupees, Hearts, Fairies, Bees, Arrows, Bombs, Water, and even Ooccoo. They can be found in houses and Dungeons, and sometimes they look like vases. Pots can be broken by throwing them, rolling into a wall with a shelf that houses them, or striking them with a sufficiently powerful Sword.
Large pots filled with Water can be found in The Wind Waker, used for temporarily cooling and solidifying magma so Link can travel across safely. These are found mainly within Dragon Roost Cavern. In Four Swords Adventures, Water Pots are found in houses and Caves. They are used on The Mountain Path to extinguish swaths of flames.

Found only in The Wind Waker in the House of Wealth, these are shiny blue and white Vases that decorate the first floor. If Link breaks one of these Vases while Mila's Father owns the house, he will not be allowed to leave until he pays the necessary amount of Rupees needed to replace the Vases. When ownership of the auction house passes to its new owner, after Link defeats the Helmaroc King at the Forsaken Fortress, Link can break as many of these Vases as he desires without a single fine; they will be replaced the next time he enters the mansion.

In Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, Four Swords Adventures, The Minish Cap and Phantom Hourglass, there are Flying Pots that come alive and fly at Link in order to attack him. When broken, these Pots contain items such as Rupees and Hearts.

- In A Link to the Past, Pots are replaced by skulls in the Dark World.
- In Twilight Princess, Link's fascination with breaking Jars is made fun of when examinating them in Hena's Fishing Hut, and he can even be expelled from the fishing hut after multiple attempts to break those Jars rolling into the wall.
- "It sounds crazy, but I've heard stories of people who have nothing better to do than go around breaking every jar they see." — Hena (Twilight Princess)
