Legend Of Zelda: Link’s Awakening on Switch – How To Steal From The Shop


Are you tired of helping everyone, and feel like turning heel for a while? Does the shop have an item for sale that you want, but you are low on Rupees? Well, if you like, you can steal it. The path to a criminal life is not all gold and glory, though, because stealing has consequences. In this guide, we detail how to get a five-finger discount, and also tell you why you might not want to walk the dark path of petty-theft.

How To Steal From The Shop

Usually, when you go to the shop in Mabe Village, you pick up an item, walk over to the shopkeeper, then pay and leave. You have the opportunity to choose to steal something, however.

To steal something, you need to be able to get it out of the shop without the shopkeeper seeing you take it. Otherwise, he stops you at the door. To prevent him from arresting you, run around him in circles, and then rush out when his back is away from the door. This trick might take you a few tries, but if you keep at it, eventually you will succeed.

The problem is that everyone knows you are now a thief. Yes, you might be helping out with all the monsters, but that is no excuse to think you can take what you want. When you return to the shop, the shopkeeper will enact his revenge.

He turns on you, hitting you with a beam of lighting so powerful it kills you, no matter how many hearts you have. As such, it seems like a life of crime doesn’t pay.
