“Dumb Ways To Die” Parody Featuring Link and Cuccos

TimothyDecember 10th, 2012 by Timothy

YouTube user Megasteakman has produced a video unveiling the most dumbest ways to die in the history of video games. There are some very hilarious methods shown off but none worse than our hero Link succumbing to the power of the cuccos. As we know from playing Ocarina of Time, cuccos may look like a fun target to slash at but it comes with its major consequences.

This parody is definitely worth taking a look at even if it means you only get a laugh at Link performing some epic dance moves! Hit the jump to view the video.

    poor link. He does not even hurt the cuccos, but they hurt him.

    I tried it in Twilight Princess and it turns you into a Cucco for a second. So weird. xP

    • Derp.

      Indeed. I tried it near Falbi’s Fly-by Fowl and then made a kamikaze jump into the lake… XD

      And why can they make you fly so much, but whn they jump of themselves, they fall like a stone?!

    “Most dumbest”…

    Cuccos are the deadliest thing in all of the legend of Zelda. I played through the whole game 20 times. Did not die once! Decided to play with the cuccos I died XD.
