The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past Cheats For SNES

Hookshot Invincibility

You can use the Hookshot to avoid enemy attacks and take no damage. Anytime you use the Hookshot and it is extended, Link will become immune to enemies allowing enemies or enemy projectiles to pass right through him. This is something easy to take advantage of, especially if you are low on health.

Free Green Potion

In order to get a free green potion, throw an empty bottle into the fountain at the Waterfall of Wishing.  This will trigger a fairy to appear and they will give you a green potion.

Unlimited Rupees

In the area right before the Desert Palace, there is a large rock that can be moved with the Power Glove. Move this rock and a secret staircase will be revealed, allowing you to go underground. You will find a guy standing there with a bunch of pots in front of him. Throw all the pots and collect the Rupees, this can be repeated, yielding 50 Rupees each time. This is an easy way to farm unlimited Rupees in the game.
