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.


Water Pot

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.

Water Pots serves the same purpose as Mega Ice from Oracle of Seasons and Spirit Tracks and Water Fruit from Skyward Sword.

Expensive Vases

Main article: Extremely High-Class Bone-China Vase

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.

Flying Pot

Main article: Flying Pot

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.

Warp Jar

Main article: Warp Jar

Featured only in The Wind Waker, Warp Jars allows Link to Warp to other unblocked Warp Jars in a Dungeon. These are useful for quickly navigating a Dungeon.

In Tri Force Heroes, one of the Drablands Challenges in some Levels requires the Links to safely transport a special pot to the end of the Level. This pot rests on a pedestal when the Level begins, and must be picked up in order for the Triforce Gateway to activate. For the Level to be completed, the pot must be thrown onto another pedestal at the end of he fourth Stage. Like other pots, this one breaks when thrown to the ground, or when dropped by a Link as he takes damage, which causes the Links to fail the challenge. However, it can be safely thrown between the Links if necessary.


  • 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,[1] and he can even be expelled from the fishing hut after multiple attempts to break those Jars by rolling into the wall.
