The Legend of Zelda series is one of the most popular franchises
in gaming history, having over twenty different extremely successful games that
have shaped the industry as a whole.
One of the most interesting parts of each game is the
introduction of new and unique items that can be used to complete certain
puzzles throughout the game.
Items like the beetle in Skyward Sword, the Wind Waker in
Wind Waker, and the many transforming masks found throughout Majora’s Mask make the world that the player can explore all the more interesting.
Using these items in
combat and to solve puzzles creates the kind of engaging gameplay that only the Legend of Zelda
That being said, not every item in the series has been a
smash hit. Some items are used once or twice in a temple, and then are simply
tossed aside for the rest of the game.
Other items in the game are useful, until an upgrade or another
item comes along that does the same thing, but better. These are just a few of
the items throughout the series that are basically useless after obtaining.
