Swordless Link (The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time)

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is a fan favorite, but it had one of the more memorable glitches from any The Legend of Zelda game. It was possible to deprive Link of the Master Sword, and in doing so, allow him to use all of his weapons in unintended ways. All you had to do was reach the game's final battle. At the beginning of this fight, the Master Sword is knocked from link's hand. If you saved the game and restarted, you'd find yourself outside the boss room without your sword. That wasn't the major effect of the glitch, though. Losing your sword in this way would allow Link to use all of his weapons on horseback; not just the bow and arrow. It also let adult Link use child Link's weapons, and you could even play in a first-person perspective. It was a bizarre list of effects, which is probably why Nintendo moved so quickly to eliminate this method of triggering it. There are still some more complicated ways of getting the effect, though.
