There are plenty of secrets and hidden collectibles in The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. Chief among them, Maiamais, the strangely named and odd creatures scattered throughout Hyrule and Lorule. To find these critters, you must first rent bombs from Ravio, then use the explosives to gain access to a cave located to the east of Link’s house. In fact, there’s a sign just outside the entrance warning of something mysterious living inside.
Thankfully, Mother Maiamai is kind and not in the mood to snack on Link. Instead, she gives you the Maiamai Map that shows the locations of all 100 lost Maiamais. Catching these little guys, though, will take some brain power. You don’t simply walk up to them. Instead, you’ll need to merge into walls, dash into objects and even utilize special items like the Tornado Rod to blow away Tornado Tiles, Zora’s Flippers to swim and the Sand Rod to uncover Maiamais. That said, we already posted how to find Maiamais 1-25, so here are the best ways to track down 26-50.
