    How do you get this?
    AriMaeda 23 May 2023 07:36
    Use powder on the old woman to turn her into a fairy and catch her with the bug net.

    It's marked as missable because the old lady disappears when you defeat Agahnim for the first time.
    Also, I didn't know about this one either xD Thanks for the info!

    For anyone attempting to go after all the achievements in one run, since there's an achievement for going bottle-less, I suggest (from game startup), loading into Sanctuary, buying the bottle from the village merchant, getting the bug net, catching the fairy and then resetting. That way your save isn't invalidated for https://retroachievements.org/achievement/314433

    @thenintendodude I didn't notice that achievement until after grabbing my first two bottles in Kakariko, so I'm gonna have to get the "get everything" and "no bottles" achievements separately.

    For anyone still struggling with this, after you get the red pendant, return to the village, go to the side of granny, use the magic powder. She turns into a fairy, collect her with the bug net and keep in bottle. achievement unlocked.

    No need to wait until you get any pendants, you can get the Mushroom and Magic Powder and turn her into a fairy as soon as you leave the Sanctuary.

    I got this to pop without powder or the old lady just by netting a fairy I knocked out of a tree in Kakariko. Lol. Specifically I ran into the tree by the house with the green roof and by the cave in the NW.
