  • Chris Houlihan Room: This is a secret room you get if you beat the game’s RAM to a room.  The best way to do this is to have the Pegasus boots and launch the game at the Sanctuary.  Plan your route and run full sprint all the way to the secret entrance into the castle (this is the one on the right side you enter in at the beginning of the game).  You’ll fall into a room with 225 rupees that announces itself as the Chris Houlihan Room.  The name was removed from the GBA version.  Aside from the rupees, this room holds no other purpose and was not to be a part of the game.
