When there's something weird in your neighborhood, who you gonna call? LINK!

Link ain't afraid of no ghosts, but he is rather irritated by one who forces him to take it all around the island before letting him get back to his main quest: learning new songs on the ocarina. Link also takes on the Catfish's Maw, learns the truth about the island, and then delves the Face Shrine, the boss of which looks like a certain Nick Jr. mascot. Join Link as he continues his quest to wake the Wind Fish, and discovers what's really at stake!


And if you're interested, here is an analysis I found of the dungeon music in Link's Awakening, and how they're all variants of a single theme. WARNING: SPOILERS ON THE PAGE. IT'S RECOMMENDED THAT YOU WATCH THE VIDEO BEFORE VISITING, IF YOU DON'T ALREADY KNOW THE STORY!

We finally wake the Wind Fish and leave Koholint Island, before moving on to Ocarina of Time! This landmark game marks many firsts that would go on to become standard within the Zelda series: the first 3D world for the series, the first instance of Link riding a horse, and most importantly, the first instance of an irritating sidekick pestering Link with information he already knows and/or doesn't need! Join Link as he resists the urge to swat Navi while they try to help the Great Deku Tree!

For the first time ever, one of the forest children leaves the forest! The world outside is much different from what Link anticipated, what with most people being thoroughly unsuited for their jobs, and others neglecting their children to sleep for days at a time! Let's join Link as he marvels at the wonderous sights of Hyrule Castle Town, Hyrule Castle, Kakariko Village, and Goron City!

Having already traveled inside the Deku Tree to learn how vegetable matter works, Link decides to travel inside Dodongo's Cavern and the great fish Lord Jabu-Jabu to learn about minerals and animals, respectively. As will surprise no learned person, he discovers that rocks are full of exploding creatures, while animals are full of mechanical switches and electricity. Join Link as he tries to learn and understand as little as possible in his ill-conceived quest to collect all the Sacred Stones!

With the Sacred Stones collected, it's time to return to the castle and explain that the plan to keep the Stones away from Ganon by gathering them together in one place was a complete success! The good news is that Ganon never obtained the Sacred Stones. The bad news is that's only because we already used them to open the gateway he wanted, and didn't close the path behind us. Join Link as he sets off to gather the Sages to help him defeat the great evil...that he himself sort of unleashed on the world in the first place. Oops.

Water, water everywhere, Nor any drop to drink! The Zoras are rather cold toward Link at the moment, so he decides to head off to the Water Temple. There, Link will do his level best, face a familiar foe who is a mere shadow of his old self, and then finally get to the core of the matter! Join Link as he rises (and falls) to the occasion and conquers the Tower of Tedium!

Link is having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day! First, he bought a defective product and was told that he'd have to pay full price to replace it with another defective product! Next, he made a new friend only to find out that the new friend turned into a monster and was lost forever! Then he encountered a horrifying, bloody demon in control of countless disembodied hands that held Link in place as the creature attempted to gnaw him to death! Worst of all, he's had to listen to Navi the whole time!

Some days are like that. Even in Hyrule.

From the humble Octorok to Ganon himself, Link has faced many enemies. However, none have been so devious, so deadly, so able to end his quest entirely as the dastardly Hole. Whether their bottoms contain lava, a prison cell, or just endless nothingness, Holes mean trouble. Puzzles can be solved and enemies can be outfought, but Holes are an ever-present danger; patiently waiting and secure in the knowledge that when Link falls from pride, it is into them that he will fall. Join Link as he clears the Shadow Temple and heads off to the desert, and learn why he broke down sobbing when his teacher assigned "Holes" as the class reading assignment.

The sages (except Rauru), have all been characters we first encountered as child Link, so who could the sixth sage be? Will it be the cucco lady we helped in Kakariko Village? Will it be the windmill guy who got upset at us for playing our magical ocarina? Could it even be Malon or Talon? Or could it instead be someone who we'll have technically met as a child, but only because we're forced to return to the past in order to open up the next temple? Join Link as he races to get to know the new sage in time to feel emotional about their involvement!

Come with me and you'll be
Tasked with arachnid elimination
Take a look and you'll see
They're spread all across the nation


Link has beaten Ganondorf's minions, rescued the sages, and all but restored peace to Hyrule. Only one thing now stands between him and ultimate victory: the various side quests and mini-games spread throughout Hyrule! Navi may wonder why they're not running directly to Hyrule Castle to beat Ganondorf's face in and rescue Princess Zelda, but Link is a seasoned enough adventurer to know that the only way to save the world is to do as many seemingly meaningless tasks as possible, no matter how small the reward!

There is no life I know
Like doing side quest procrastination
Once you start, there you'll be
'Til the end of time with me

Link continues his quest to save Princess Zelda and all of Hyrule, though to the casual observer it may appear that he's doing anything and everything except that. Even taking this less direct route, however, Link's path is fraught with failure. He failed to follow a basic checklist, failed to play a five-note ocarina correctly, and even consistently failed in taking on enemies he's been fighting since the first dungeon. On the plus side, he did succeed in firing an arrow into the air. Furthermore, Ganondorf himself appears to be failing to expand and consolidate his dominion, so Link must be doing something right!

Link has been journeying through Ocarina of Time for nearly twelve whole episodes. He's had his ups and downs; his successes and defeats. He's taken out temple bosses, rescued sages, and traded his way up to a better sword. He's lost rupees, lost friends, and a couple times very nearly lost his tunic.

And all of it has been building up to this moment. The blood, sweat, and tears that Link has shed will be repaid in full, as Link finally achieves his ultimate quest. For tonight, Link collects his 100th Gold Skulltula and cures the cursed family!

Though, Link can't help but feel there's something he's forgetting. Golden triangles? A dark lord? Something about the end of the world? Eh, it can't have been too important; I'm sure it'll come back to him later.
