What is it, how did it get in the game, et cetera. This FAQ is short, that is because it only covers one secret in the game. So when you think about it, it's actually quite big. It covers a secret hardly anyone knows about in The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. I hope that this FAQ changes all of that, because everyone should know about this secret. Coincidentally, as I write this (June 30, 2002, about 3:30am), I just found out about the Chris Houlihan Room myself not 10 hours ago. While browsing the GameFAQs.com message board for The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, I came across several threads discussing this secret. It intreuged me, so I read into it, tried it, and even made a thread of my own, asking for additional help so that I could include a version of the secret in my FAQ/Walkthrough for the game. It was then that I decided that in addition to including it in my FAQ/Walkthrough, that I would make a seperate FAQ discussing the little-known secret in the game, using information that I read on the message board, as well as the famous David Wonn's website (the glitch-master himself). Needless to say, the secret itself goes pretty deep, and I hope I covered it all in this FAQ. If I didn't, if you have ANYTHING to add, or tell me I'm wrong, or critique me, WHATEVER, please feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com. I'd be more than happy to hear from you, especially on this great secret. Enjoy! -Colin Moriarty (CMoriarty) [firstname.lastname@example.org] /\ /\ /__\===================================================================/__\ /\ /\ IV S E C T I O N F O U R | W H O I S H E ? IV /\ /\ /__\/__\===============================================================/__\/__\ Who is Chris Houlihan? That's a good question, and one I'm about to answer for you here. Chris Houlihan was a reader and subscriber to the uber-popular Nintendo magazine, Nintendo Power. Sometime in the early 90s (being that this game was released in late 1991, I'm going to guess it was sometime in 1990, or early 1991), Nintendo Power held a contest, where the winner would have his name in a secret room in a game... and the room would be so secret, hardly anyone would no about it. Needless to say, it stayed that way for quite some time. While I'm not going to say that upon the game's release no one knew about this secret, but I don't think anyone really did, apart from the programmers of the game. I got the game the Christmas after it came out, and I NEVER EVER heard of this secret until very recently. I read on the GameFAQs message boards that only after the Internet was in people's homes and a Super Nintendo emulator was invented that the secret came out. Whether or not this is true, I don't know, but I do know that the secret, even to this day, is a pretty well hidden one. The room itself isn't anything impressive, it's just more of a novelty. When you fall into the room, you'll find yourself in a normal sized room, with cave walls, a blue floor, and 45 blue rupees strewn across it. In addition, there is a Sahsarahla plaque on the northern wall, which tells the player that this is the Chris Houlihan Room. The exit at the south of the room (the only way out), when you exit, leads you out of Link's house... odd, I know, but true. Not much else is known on Chris Houlihan... if you have any more information to add, please e-mail me at email@example.com, although I think the information provided is complete, as far as anyone really knows. /\ /\ /__\===================================================================/__\ /\ /\ V S E C T I O N F I V E | M E T H O D S V /\ /\ /__\/__\===============================================================/__\/__\ As far as I've read, there are a few methods to gain access to the room. I have everyone at the Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past message board at GameFAQs.com to thank for this information! THANKS GUYS! I hope this FAQ pays tribute to all of your hard work and effort to bring this secret out. NOTE: To do any of these, you MUST have the Pegasus Shoes, because you HAVE to run. The first method, and the one I use the most often, and works the most often for me, is the following. Start the game from a save file, and choose to start out at the Sanctuary. As the game starts, you're within the walls of the Sanctuary. Immediately run south, out of the Sanctuary, and then south again, out of the garden of the Sanctuary. Then run west one screen, and turn south as soon as you can. You'll now be in a heavily wooded area. Carefully (and quickly) navigate the trees, bushes and enemies, and head west, to the side passage into the castle walls. Once here, run south, then east, and then north. Run north and run INTO the bush that hides the hidden passage into the castle basement, and you'll fall into it. If you're fast enough, instead of falling into the basement, you'll fall into the Chris Houlihan Room. Neat-o. Thanks to a good guy at the Zelda: LttP message boards, named ABR. Thanks to him, this FAQ is possible, because his help turned me on to this secret! The second method is similar. Go to Kakariko village, to the vertical pathway on the east side of town, on the edge of town. GO to the north of it, and run north. Run east, past the Fortune Teller's house, and then run south into the wooded area. From here, it's identical to the first method... this version never worked for me, but coincidentally, this is the version most people seem to successfully use, so I was probably not fast enough. You may have different luck, however. Now for an unconfirmed method. Many people say that if you fall into a hole in Ganon's Tower (e-mail me to confirm WHICH hole), that you will fall into the Chris Houlihan Room. This is unconfirmed. The fact of the matter is that the room seems to be designed in such a way that if there's any malfunction with the game cartridge, that it'll automatically transport you here. David Wonn sites this one his site, saying that the game scans for problems when entering caves and houses, and if there is a malfunction with the cartridge, you will be transported to the Chris Houlihan Room. This is confirmed, but very, very rare. David Wonn says that you have a better chance of winning the lottery than hitting it this way. Any more methods? Corrections? Additions? Please e-mail me, firstname.lastname@example.org! /\ /\ /__\===================================================================/__\ /\ /\ V S E C T I O N S I X | M O R E I N P U T V /\ /\ /__\/__\===============================================================/__\/__\ I understand that I might have missed a lot of stuff. Many of you out there know more about the Chris Houlihan Room than I do, and that's why this small section of the FAQ exists. If you have ANYTHING to add, correct, or a question or comment about this FAQ, please e-mail it to me at email@example.com. I usually wouldn't advertise my e-mail address this much in a FAQ... actually, in my 24 other FAQs on GameFAQs, I -never- do. However, this is different, because I feel I am still greatly uneducated on the pure physics of the Chris Houlihan Room secret, and if anyone out there is more enlightened than I on it, then please do e-mail me. I'd really appreciate it. This FAQ was made to help people out and show the vast public of the existance of this room. However, it's not complete or 100% accurate, and I realize this. So again, e-mail me with anything you may have to add. Thanks. /\ /\ /__\===================================================================/__\ /\ /\ VII S E C T I O N S E V E N | C L O S I N G VII /\ /\ /__\/__\===============================================================/__\/__\ Well my friends, it's time to close this guide out! =) I hope you found it very helpful... I very much enjoyed writing it. It was fun, as is the game, and I'm sure that it was/is/will be enjoyable for you as well. And hey, if you have game related questions, comments, suggestions - whatever, e-mail them my way, firstname.lastname@example.org. And make sure to put Zelda SNES - Chris Houlihan Room (or whatever game you're writing in on, I have nineteen other guides), in the header as the topic, so I know what the hell you're talking about. =) Take it easy. I'd like to take this chance to thank a friend of mine, Devin Morgan, a fellow FAQ writer on GameFAQs, for just being a good guy, a good friend, and someone I can talk to about everything. Thanks Dev. Thanks should also go out to other fellow FAQers, including Nemesis, flowerpot, MetroidMoo, Pop, et cetera. One final thank you goes out, once again, to Astro Blue and Shdwrlm3, for offering me use of some of their formatting from their Zelda OoS/OoA FAQs, which I gladly accepted. Thanks guys! Oh wait, that's not true. Thanks to EVERYONE on the GameFAQs Zelda: LttP Message Boards who enlightened me on this secret, especially ABR, who went out of his way to further enlighten me. Additionally, thank you to David Wonn and his website, for additional information on this secret. THANKS TO ALL! /\ /\ /__\===================================================================/__\ /\ /\ VIII S E C T I O N E I G H T | A B O U T...
