100% RTA (1.0, 1.1)

The route for versions 1.0 and 1.1 utilizes Eyeball Frog early to obtain the Biggoron's Sword in the middle of Adult 1. This technique alone makes the route alone 6-8 minutes faster compared to doing the adult trade sequence normally, which is enough to make N64 v1.0/v1.1 the fastest version for 100%.

Please familiarize yourself with the Common Terms and Abbreviations before following this route.

Alternatives (Adult 1)

You can get Hookshot before entering Shadow Temple early to get Hover Boots, and enter the Windmill from the main entrance in Kakariko Village to get Song of Storms and the HP. This is 7 seconds slower, but easier than getting Hookshot after Hover Boots and enter the Windmill from Dampe's grave via SoT block clip.

Alternatives (Child 2)

If you don't feel comfortable with your HESSing: you can savewarp after learning Saria's Song, superslide to the mini-meadow to get the soil GS and 20 Deku Stick upgrade. Next, exit & play Sun's Song to get Skull Kid HP and sell mask, soil GS and 30 Deku Stick upgrade. Finally, play sun's song and get Bullet Bag (40) upgrade and Ocarina Minigame HP.
