The Lens of Truth

The Lens of Truth is an item in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask.


In Ocarina of Time, the Lens of Truth is obtained by beating the Dead Hand at the bottom of the well in Kakariko Village. It is optional but would make the Shadow Temple next to impossible without it.

In Majora's Mask, it can be found in a treasure chest in Snowhead.


It allows you to see:

  • Fake Walls
  • Floors (and lack thereof)
  • Invisible People
  • Invisible creatures
  • Invisible Items

Examples are Bongo Bongo and the Poe that guides you through the Haunted Wasteland.


  • Using the Lens is an effective way to "cheat" at the Hyrule treasure chest game.
