The Zora Tunic is one of the three tunics that appear in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and its Nintendo 3DS remake, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. It is a blue tunic that gives Link the ability to breathe underwater. In conjunction with the Iron Boots, this disables the underwater timer and allows places such as the Water Temple to be navigated safely. Like the Goron Tunic, Link can only wear the Zora Tunic as an adult.

Link can obtain the Zora Tunic by either buying it at the Zora Shop or from King Zora after Link unfreezes him from the red ice. At the shop, the Zora Tunic costs 300 Rupees, and even though Link can purchase it, the shopkeeper mentions that only a rich family in Kakariko Village can afford the Zora Tunic. If Link already has the tunic and talks to King Zora, he offers to kiss Link, who declines. If Link is swallowed by a Like Like and does not unequip it before being spit out, it will swallow the Zora Tunic. Link can recover the tunic if he defeats the Like Like quickly enough, otherwise he can purchase another at the Zora Shop.

According to the Player's Guide, the Zoras created these tunics for the Hylians, who could then breathe underwater because Zora Tunics were made from fish gills.[1]

In the Super Smash Bros. series and the GameCube version of Soulcalibur II, one of Link's alternate costumes is based on the Zora Tunic. The Zora Tunic appears as one of Link's unlockable costumes in Hyrule Warriors, and is also represented on three obtainable badges that reduce damage taken on water-element-recommended stages.

The Blue Clothes from The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX particularly resemble the Zora Tunic. In The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, the Zora Tunic was succeeded by the similar Zora armor.

"Zona Tunic The Zoras served the King of Hyrule by supplying sacred water from their river. To purify it, the king’s Hylian water inspectors often needed to cleanse the riverbed of pollutants. To help them breathe underwater, the Zoras outfitted the Hylians with suits of fish gills."
