Minish Cap Glitches - Fickle Farmer
- You must be at the point where you can fuse Kinstones with Eenie, but...
- You must not yet have fused Kinstones with Eenie, or even attempted to do so.
- Start the process of fusing Kinstones with Eenie.
- Quit the Kinstone fusion process without doing anything.
- Leave the screen.
If you attempt to fuse Kinstones with Eenie but choose not to do so, and then leave the screen, Eenie will never initiate another attempt at completing his Kinstone fusion. Because of this, if you don't complete the fusion the first time around, you will never be able to complete the Goron sidequest. This, in turn, will leave you unable to obtain 1 of the bottles as well as unable to wake up Biggoron; in turn, that leaves you unable to obtain the Mirror Shield.
All this is probably due to the European version of the game having started its localization process prior to the Japanese debug team having fixed the glitch prior to the Japanese release of the game. This is why the glitch isn't present in the American version, as that version's localization process took place after all Japanese programming, including the fix for this glitch, was finished.
This glitch is present on all European GBA cartridges and remains present in the European 3DS re-release.
