Movement Speeds

Information

The following is a table of movements and their speed values in Ocarina of Time. Each movement type has a short acceleration delay, so most of the listed values are the maximum speed attainable. These values were found by observing the speed addresses in a memory viewer for each type of movement.

The speeds listed below represent the distance traveled every frame, at a rate of 20 frames per second. It's important to note that internally the game reports velocity as being 2/3rds slower than what is listed below; this is most likely due to the fact that the Zelda 64 engine was derived from the Super Mario 64 engine, which ran at 30 frames per second.

This is a list of all known and tested speed values. All values are for Adult Link, unless stated otherwise.
