During normal play, while keeping the right side of the game cartridge pushed down, pull slowly up on the left side of the cartridge until Link starts flickering all over the screen and the sound becomes distorted and fuzzy. If you pull the cartridge out too far, or if you keep the cartridge pulled out for too long, the game will crash. Quite often when attempting this trick the game will simply crash. To prevent the game from crashing make Link run around while pulling up on the cartridge; the faster Link is moving, the less likely the game is to crash -- usually. Now when you have got it to the point where the sound is distorted and Link is jumping all over the place you can, among other odd things, run straight through rocks and people (see Actors).

For obvious reasons this does not work on the GCN, MQ, Virtual Console, or 3DS versions of the game.
