The Legend of Zelda franchise has gifted gamers some truly amazing adventures that are full of epic battles, immensely memorable characters and superb soundtracks that keep players coming back for more time after time.
Obviously, a lot of the fanbase remain loyal to the franchise in the hopes of wielding the Sword of Evil's Bane, The Master Sword, as they hack and slash their way through hordes of enemies, tricky dungeons and cinematic boss fights. However, no Zelda title is complete without a host of supporting inventory items.
While some support items, such as bombs, have multiple uses including combat, many of the best items we've ever seen in Zelda games are those that are solely used to solve puzzles, add game mechanics and even give Link on-the-go storage options.
There are very few titles in the Legend of Zelda franchise that can be completed without filling Link's inventory (even if some of the items are good for one location and that's it!) so it's about time the supporting cast were given some of the credit they deserve.
Just for clarification: any items with a combat application won't be appearing, so the Hookshot, the elemental arrows, the rods and various other loosely combat-worthy items will be omitted.
