Below is the list of allowed and banned techniques for the Glitchless + Ground Jumps (GGJ) ruleset. Because this was based on a ruleset from the vanilla game, you may notice significant differences in the level of detail in describing what is allowed or banned when comparing to the Standard ruleset. Please feel free to assume that if it is not listed, and doesn't otherwise violate one of the explicitly banned conditions, that it is allowed.

This ruleset will update over time to include new discoveries as they are made, however the goal of banning only by technique - regardless of the consequences - will remain in effect.

This ruleset is typically raced with glitchless logic. Other rulesets are also available.

  • Please keep in mind that the Universal Rules apply to all OoTR races, including GGJ Ruleset races.

  • Touching misplaced or accidentally-exposed loading zones
    • EG: Early Jabu, Trials skip, Market shops at night
