Link: The Faces of Evil

In Link: The Faces of Evil, Rafts appear in several water-based stages, including Spearfish Falls, Firestone Lake, and in the tar pits of Ganon's Lair. They are used to safely cross these waters and will immediately move once Link stands on one.

Zelda's Adventure

In Zelda's Adventure, the Raft item can be found next to a pond in the Meadow of Skotness near Great Wimbich. It is used to cross the flooded passage in the Shrine of Water. Another Raft also appears in the Port Town of Seacoast Plain, belonging to a seafarer. He allows Zelda to take the Raft to Sea Island, provided that she pays him two Rupees and has the Vial of Winds, as the offshore wind has died down.[2] The same Raft can be used to return to the Port Town from Sea Island.

Hyrule Warriors

In Hyrule Warriors, the Raft appears as an Item Card in Adventure Mode. It can be used to cross water from docks, removing locks on certain adjacent squares. In the Twilight Princess DLC pack, the 8-Bit Power Bracelet can be unlocked in the Twilight Map. It features the Power Bracelet paired with the Raft.
