Carrots are recurring items in the Legend of Zelda series. When riding Epona, Link's horse, they are used to give her speed bursts. These speed bursts must be used to jump over various obstacles, such as fences. In Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland, the Frizzy Carrot appears as an item obtained from defeated Rabbits. In The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the Endura Carrot and Swift Carrot appear as health restoring items and ingredients for cooking.


The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask

Link is given six Carrots when he rides Epona. Every time Link uses a Carrot, Epona increases her speed for a short period of time, and she resumes to running at a normal speed after one has been used up. These speed bursts must be used to jump over various obstacles, such as the fences found in Lon Lon Ranch. Carrots eventually regenerate after a brief lapse of time, but will take longer to reappear if Link uses all of them before they have begun to regenerate. They will fully regenerate if Link dismounts Epona, or if he enters a new area while riding her.

Carrots are also used when riding other horses at Lon Lon Ranch in Ocarina of Time.

The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures

Carrots are used in similar fashion to their earlier counterparts, only they must be collected rather than automatically regenerated. They are found prevalently in The Field and during the Bucking Bronco mini-game.

The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes

Though Carrots do not appear they are mentioned in the description of the Carrumpkin, which is described as a carrot that love autumn so much it turned into a Pumpkin.

Carrots appear as part of Link's Horse moveset and are used to make Epona charge ahead when the Strong Attack button is pressed. Epona will also charge if the strong attack button is held down at the end of a combo attack. However like in Ocarina of Time, Epona cannot charge ahead if the carrot gauge is empty and have to wait for it to regenerate.

Hyrule Warriors Legends

In addition to their role in Link's Horse moveset, Carrots also appear as a Food item for Companion Fairies and are classified as a type of Plant-based Food. Like all Food items, they come in 3 grades: Bronze, Silver, and Gold.
