The Fairy Ocarina is an item from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Link receives this brown ocarina as a memento from Saria when he leaves Kokiri Forest to embark on the quest for the Spiritual Stones. Link learns most of the non-teleportation songs in the game while in possession of the Fairy Ocarina, including "Zelda's Lullaby" and "Saria's Song". This Ocarina seems to be a generic Ocarina handed out to the Kokiri, as Saria is seen playing an identical Ocarina after giving Link his. The Fairy Ocarina sounds identical to the Ocarina of Time, which is obtained later in the game. Upon obtaining the Ocarina of Time, it takes the place of the Fairy Ocarina on the Item Subscreen; what happens to the Fairy Ocarina is unknown.
The Fairy Ocarina can be played with the A Button and yellow C-buttons. A total of twelve songs can be learned; six songs with different effects and six songs that teleport Link to various places; however, the latter six songs and the "Song of Storms" can only be learned after obtaining the Ocarina of Time.
The pitches of the notes that correspond with each button are as follows:
In the manga
Link receives the Fairy Ocarina as a gift from Saria when he leaves the forest. Eventually, he learns to play both "Saria's Song" and "Zelda's Lullaby". The Ocarina does not appear to have any magical power, and neither do the songs. Upon encountering Link, Ganondorf takes the Fairy Ocarina from him, mistaking it for the Ocarina of Time. When he realizes his mistake, seven years later, he crushes it in his hand.
