You can reflect any projectile this way. It just isn't worth doing for most things, but I think your shield takes no damage if you do it (and if you do it to rocks and stuff, you'll send them flying straight back at whomever threw them at you, faster than you would if you just block it).

It also knocks enemies over if you use it to parry melee attacks, but it's better to side-step and use a flurry counter.

It was the first one I found. Creppy (toilet) hand angrily asking for tons of rupees when I didn't even know you could sell stuff.

To contribute, you can do the rotating puzzle thing sideways too.

The first thing I did when I got the skelleton horse was taking it to the stable. I didn't expect them to take it in but I was glad that there was a dialogue for it. I was taking pics and thinking that it'd been fun I they actually let me keep it when suddenly BOOM.

You can put octorocks into a raft and have it set off with you on top. It's majestic.

Also frozen meat giving you heat resistance. And white doves can drop XXL meat for some reason.

I parried an arrow once. I don't think it flew back to hit the enemy though or at least I couldn't see it if it did.

"Smoking out" bees is done in real life to immobilize bees when extracting honey.

I think collecting honeycombs in the rain keeps the bees from appearing, too. Either that, or I've just come across hives without bees...and only while it's raining.

At around 11PM~12AM, take high ground really high up and look at the moon. You will often see a shooting star and a yellow trail of a fragment land somewhere in the distance. Go grab that fragment and keep it for upgrading armor.

Was aproaching a moblin camp near a lake under leveled and low on gear, so i was trying to stealth by.

Used my Cryo power to continually create blocks that acted as a moving screen that obscured me from view. Which allowed me to stealth past enemies until i got close enough to steal an overpowered sword away from sleeping enemies with Magnesis

It's different from most other examples as this probably wasn't intended, but I got a good laugh out of this one.

On one of the gyro ball maze shrines, I got frustrated and spun my controller around wildly, sending the ball flying off the maze. I waited a few moments but another one didn't come out. Thought the game had bugged out so I exited the gyro puzzle and was about to exit and re-enter the shrine when I bumped into the ball which had miraculously landed right behind me on the platform.

There was a clear path to the keyhole so I ended up just pushing the ball normally and skipping the puzzle completely.

You can still break it if your timing is wonky, I definitely destroyed at least one guardian shield trying to parry the beams.

Parrying guardian beams was the big one for me. Accidentally parried one with a pot lid because i pressed the wrong button at the exact right moment.... its my new favorite mechanic in the entire game. The animation slowdown and sound are amazing.

Yeah i believe this carries over to the fire lizalfos and stuff as well. One shot with the correct elemental weakness and they just vanish in one hit! I noticed this on death mountain when i had an ice great sword out against them.

Yes, it works with all (normal sized) ice and fire enemies.

On that note, I'm pretty sure you can't kill Fire Keese with fire arrows, nor Ice Keese with ice arrows. Goes right through them.
