- "Rumors tell of precious Red Ore and Blue Ore. If you mix the two, you get unbelievably hard ore! But it's a secret!"

The Hard Ore is a quest item from The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons. While not necessary for completing the game, it is necessary in order to obtain the Iron Shield. Hard Ore is seemingly an alloy or amalgamation created when Red and Blue Ore is combined. It can only be acquired after getting the Magnetic Gloves, as these are required for getting the Red and Blue Ore.
