|Game(s)||Ocarina of Time|
|Use(s)||Get inside Lord Jabu-Jabu's belly|
|Comparable Item(s)||Zelda's Letter|
Ruto's Letter is an item in Ocarina of Time.
The letter was written by Princess Ruto requesting help after she became swallowed by Lord Jabu-Jabu. The letter, which was stuck inside an empty bottle, eventually made its way to Lake Hylia. During Link's adventure, he finds Ruto's Letter in Lake Hylia near the underwater entrance to Zora's Domain. Link can remove the letter from inside the bottle and read it, which states as follows:
- "Help me.
- I am waiting for you inside
- Lord Jabu Jabu's belly.
- PS: Don't tell my father!"
Upon handing over the letter to the King Zora, he will allow Link to access to Lord Jabu Jabu's abode in Zora's Fountain and asks him to look for Princess Ruto. As a bonus, the King grants the young hero the empty bottle that contained the letter.
- "The evidence seems clear. Of course, you'll go find Ruto. You can pass through here to the altar of Lord Jabu-Jabu." — King Zora (Ocarina of Time)
- "I'll keep this letter. You keep the bottle it was in. Take it respectfully!" — King Zora (Ocarina of Time)
- "Are you saying my father asked you to come here to save me? I'd never ask anyone to do such a thing! "Letter in a Bottle?" I have no idea what you're talking about! My father is worried about me? I don't care!" — Princess Ruto (Ocarina of Time)
- "Have you seen anything strange in the lake? The river carries many things into this lake!" — Zora (Ocarina of Time)
