How to Do the Jump Attack in "The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time"


In “The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time,” Link must use a variety of weapons and attacks to defeat the monsters of Hyrule. One of Link's most effective moves is the jump attack. To do a jump attack, Link targets an enemy, leaps up high and brings his sword down with a powerful vertical strike. The move is particularly useful against enemies such as the dodongo, Gohma larva, iron knuckle and wolfos.

  • Stand close to the enemy you want to attack. If you stand too far away, the jump attack won't hit the monster.

  • Hold down the "L" button on Gamecube, Nintendo 3DS and the classic Wii controller to target the enemy. On Nintendo 64, hold down "Z."

  • Press "A" to perform the jump attack on all game consoles.

Tips & Warnings

  • Do a jump attack on a dodongo's tail to defeat it in one hit.
  • To do a vertical sword slash, press up on the control stick and tap "B." To perform a spin attack, hold down the "B" button and then release it.
