“Why Being a Henchman in Zelda Would Suck”

DaveyNovember 30th, 2012 by Davey

With nearly all of the Zelda games being an adventure from Link’s perspective, we rarely see the perspective of anyone on the “evil side”. Also, as gamers, we don’t question the seemingly random layout of traps and goodies spread around Hyrule, Termina, or wherever Link’s quests take him. However, with a recent Cracked video, we now know what happens behind the scenes, and how those “random” chests get spread around the land. Hit the jump for the video!

Okay, so the video is actually made by the guys at Those Aren’t Muskets, but it’s hosted on Cracked. Nevertheless, the video is an excellent bit of bickering between two of Ganon’s henchmen, and for once we can see who places those unlocked chests around!

And of course, like any Zelda parody, the video ends with a short feature of our courageous adventurer. It’s definitely a humorous end to the already hilarious video, and it makes the whole three minute video worth it.

What did you think of the video? Did you find it funny? Tell us in the comments!

    So he took the bottle and not the heart and there was more than one item inside the chest. Anyway, it was funny.

  • ghilesian

    It did always strike me as weird that something as simple as an empty bottle was so valuable :’) or could be used to battle Ganon for that matter

    • adolf wolf

      glass! i think pretty much only hyrule castle had glass windows?

  • Aaron hill

    hahhaahaha this is funny and makes some sense

    “There is a container in this container”
    Yo dawg…..

    • zombie_eat_flesh

      We heard you like containers, so we put a container in your container so you can use a container while using a container.

      Someone else in this world believes Link is an Elf… I’m not alone!

      • Dusk76

        hes a hydrulian not an elf.

  • Link_The_Ultimate_Chronomancer

    I’ve always wondered why keys were put IN unlocked chests… And why every chest was unlocked…

    Well done. My son is 6 and is just starting playing all of these games and loves it. I’m trying to decide whether I should let him watch this b/c of the heart blood. Yep, I think I will!! Great job.

    • Hylia

      He’s six? Smoking, mild language, swearing…
      Yeah, no.

      • The Hylian Monolith

        Actually, I’m sure that was some kind of Hyrulian smoke. He used either either or a fairy to light it. And have you seen little kid’s shows these days?
        There’s no swearing in this.

    So he drops his sword and shield, yet remembers to take the bottle?

    • Master

      you know you would have done the same

      • Anonymous

        Maybe, if the Golden Bee worked on Ganon, or we can bottle a Cukoo.
        What? We can bottle the Deku Princess! Why not a Cukoo?

    • soul

      it’s just hard to sheath a sword in a scabbard made in less than a minute

    how in the WORLD does link keep all of those hearts inside him?! or is his body just like his pockets, where he can put ANYTHING in?

    • Cucco Link

      Maybe he’s kind of like Dr.Who in a way.

      • Jono

        He’s bigger on the inside. So more like the Tardis.

    • Cucco Link

      Like how he has two hearts or something….

  • Zelda is the Bomb!!!

    WHY did there have to be an Old Spice ad? WHY?!

    • JasonTheEgg

      Look left. Now back at me. Now there’s cheese.

    • Cucco Link

      Because you don’t use Adblock.

  • Zelda is the Bomb!!!

    Son of a Lon Lon!

  • starman888

    Link, you forgot your shield…

  • pizzaman

    Well that was terrible.

    Aww. It doesn’t work on my iPad. D:

    • baileygirl99

      Go to the cracked website then scroll down and find it under the category video games.

      • ralphpotato

        The problem is that it’s a flash video. iPads (and other iOS devices) can’t play flash content.

        • baileygirl99

          I watched it on my iPad…..soo….

  • zeldafan

    oh lets put this unlocked chest in the middle of the forest full of 200 ruppes

  • drnedaj

    funny? That was one of the worst videos I’ve seen yet on zelda dungeon. But I guess others would find it funny…

  • ZeldaTeacher

    This video is pretty funny, I love that people take the time to think up this stuff!

  • Waker of Winds
