- "You found the Moon Pearl! This protects The Hero from the changing effects of the Golden Power."
- — In-game description
The Moon Pearl is a recurring item in the Legend of Zelda series. Its magical properties relate to the Dark World in different ways in each of the games it makes an appearance.
The Moon Pearl is a red orb that has the power to allow Link to remain in his Hylian form when inside the Dark World; normally, he would change into a pink rabbit. It can be found in the Tower of Hera, the third and final dungeon of the Light World.
There are several Moon Pearls in this game, which appear as blue spheres. Each one can be used once to open a Moon Gate to the Dark World on certain spots. The Moon Pearl shatters as soon as it opens a portal. Link can identify these spots by listening for a faint tinkling sound. Link must carry Moon Pearls with him and cannot use any other items, except for the Roc's Feather, while he is doing so. If the Moon Pearl is thrown at a Floormaster, the Floormaster will be temporarily stunned, allowing Link to escape.
