Welcome to the inaugural Majora’s Memes! A weekly feature where we present you with the laughs related to Zelda we got from Memebase and other such places! Zelda is a pretty memetic franchise, spawning such hits as “I am Error!” and “It’s Dangerous to Go Alone! Take This!” And given its popularity, it’s a given that several posts from Memebase would be Zelda-related. Hit the jump to see!
To begin with, we have this post from wolfcry1996. On its own, it’s a painting of a sad Link sitting down, but it’s made hilarious by the addition of a picture of Anne Robinson, host of British game show Weakest Link and her catchphrase “You are the weakest link.” The side caption drives the joke home with the caption simply reading “Goodbye.”
There’s also this hilarious image of three of Nintendo’s biggest execs: Shigeru Miyamoto, Saturo Iwata, and Reggie Fils-Aime, as Link, Zelda, and Ganondorf respectively. They’re even standing in a triangle, making the addition of a Triforce only natural. Thanks so much to bluelytning for this!
Next, we’ve got this awesome picture of an epic reimagining of Link courtesy of uniqueLegend, who originally created the picture on her deviantART account. An anonymous Memebase user posted the image to Memebase and titled the post “Taking Breaking Pots to a Whole New Level.” It’s a distinctly Assassin’s Creed-esque take on our favorite hero.
A comment from MajoraMan on my last post; “The Legend of Poses” said it best:
Link: “Hey zelda, want to hangout or go on a date or something?” Zelda: “Sure! just rid the world of all evil by harnessing the power of the gods and going on various quests, then we can do whatever
However, this image posted to Memebase by an anonymous user also sums it up nicely. If you ask me, the ‘okay’ faces at the bottom are funny, but I think it would be better without.
Sometimes NPCs just say the darndest things, as this next image from Teh_wb points out. It depicts Mayor Hagen of Hyrule Town telling Link about his mask collection and how they “see everything about his private life.” The masks sure don’t look too happy about that!
