Tunic Secret Fairies: Full Guide To Puzzles And Locations

Tunic Secret Fairies are mandatory if you want to fully complete the instruction manual and see the game’s true ending.

Also, when you rescue all 20 Secret Fairies, you’ll be able to get one of the Secret Treasures (covered in this guide).

However, the Tunic Secret Fairies are pretty hard to rescue because you have to know where to look and how to complete the corresponding puzzles.

But you don’t need to worry because, as always, I’ll provide instructions and screenshots that will help you get all the 20 Tunic Secret Fairies without any stress.

Where To Find All Tunic Secret Fairies

Most Tunic Secret Fairies are in the Overworld area, and I’ve pinpointed their locations on the following map.

Tunic Secret Fairies Overworld Map

As for the rest of the Fairies, we will talk about their locations as we get to each one.

Check manual page 48 for a hint that will help you locate the Fairies more easily.

The hint is a Holy Cross (D-pad) code that if you use near the location of a Fairy, it will show you precisely where you have to go; however, you still have to solve the puzzle yourself.

The D-pad code is: Up, Left, Up, Right, Down, Right, Right.

Also, you can see the Secret Fairies list on the same page. Once you free a Fairy, the correspondent square will get checked off on the list.

All the Secret Fairy puzzles will be solved with the help of your D-pad.

I suggest going for the Fairies after you have the Teleport Dash (discussed in this guide) and have access to all the areas.

Now, if you are good to go, let’s save every single Fairy out there because, in case you forgot, you’re the hero.

How To Rescue Secret Fairy #1

Let’s start things off by going to the Fairies’ secret gathering place, where you can also rescue the first Tunic Secret Fairy.

So go at the waterfall marked with 1 on the Overworld map above (north of the windmill). Then enter the secret gathering place which is behind the waterfall.

Now you can use the D-pad code I mentioned earlier (Up, Left, Up, Right, Down, Right, Right) to find out where the Fairy is precisely, or you can use the following image.

Once you’ve positioned yourself in the right place, you have to push the following D-pad buttons (the solution is on the walls): Down, Right, Up, Right, Up, Right, Up, Left, Up, Left, Up, Right, Up, Right, Up, Left, Down, Left, Down, Left, Down, Right, Down, Left, Down, Right, Down, Right, Up, Right.

You can get to the same solution if you grab a piece of paper and connect the two patterns written on the walls.

Also, if you don’t know how this type of puzzle works, you have to start from one of the dots and press the button that corresponds with each line’s direction (on your D-pad).

After you enter the correct code, a golden chest materializes, and you have to open it to rescue the first Secret Fairy.

Where To Find Secret Fairy #2

For the second Secret Fairy in Tunic, you have to head east of the only Fox Shrine in the Overworld area. Again, use the map above for the exact location.

You’ll know you are in the right place when you reach the brown sign that says Forest Fortress.

Position yourself in the middle of the square-shaped terrain (like in the screenshot above) and enter the following D-pad code: Up, Left, Down, Left, Down, Left, Down, Left, Up, Right, Down, Right, Right, Down, Right.

The flowers on the ground are the key to finding the solution.

And like magic, the Secret Fairy chest appears for you to open.

Next, you need to go to the small island between the southern beaches of the Overworld area (check the map above).

Here is the code for the left side (you need only one side to solve the puzzle): Right, Up, Left, Up, Right, Up, Left, Up, Up, Right, Down, Left, Down, Right, Down, Left, Down, Right.

After you enter the code, go through the opening in the wall, and you should soon reach a huge tower you must climb.

Remember or better note down each time you change direction when climbing the tower because you’ll need the info for the puzzle. Also, note that the section with the blue lines on the walls means you have Left x3.

So, when you are on top of the tower, go in the middle and input the following D-pad code based on the route pattern you used to climb the tower: Left, Up, Right, Up, Right, Down, Right, Up, Right, Up, Left, Left, Left, Up, Right, Up.
