Submitted Artwork Last week, we asked you to create artwork of forests in Zelda. And here’s what you sent…

Throughout the course of the entire Zelda franchise, a few things have remained consistent despite all the growth and evolution the series has been through. Of these few things, one is the weaponry, which despite arms and equipment changing and adapting with new titles, still always feels grounded in this sort of high fantasy type setting. Link’s iconic sword and shield combo as he makes a mad dash towards a shambling Moblin with a club, or a Darknut with a…

What image pops into your mind when you think of Majora’s Mask? Is it Skull Kid, Stone Town, the phrase “Dawn of Day Three?” While these are all iconic, the actual mask itself is the main visual that comes to my mind when thinking of Majora’s Mask, as it’s not only on the original Nintendo 64 cartridge, but also in the title. Recently, a Zelda fan created their own life-sized version of this mask, and the results are stunning.  Redditor…

⁸A few months ago, I asked via a Daily Debate what everyone’s favorite thing was about their least favorite Zelda game. However, in the same way that no Zelda game is without at least one good quality, the reverse is also true. No Zelda game is absolutely perfect. While it may be your favorite, there may be one thing that you don’t particularly enjoy, or maybe even dislike. For me, my favorite Zelda game is Breath of the Wild. I…

If you have ever wanted to act out your favorite moments from The Wind Waker and you’re still stuck indoors, then here’s an opportunity for you! The online charity clothing retailer Uncute currently has hand puppets for sale that are based on Ganondorf, Princess Zelda, and Link from The Wind Waker. These officially licensed puppets range from 9 to 10 inches tall and have fully-movable arms. Uncute even says that the Ganondorf hand puppet is the first licensed, Ganon-related stuffed toy…

Welcome back, randomizer enthusiasts! We’re going to continue our dive into the world of randomizers, specifically those in the Legend of Zelda community. For those new to randomizers, the long and the short is this: a randomizer is a game in which treasures are shuffled and scattered all over the world, game goals are changed, and everything is much more open. For an in-depth analysis, be sure to check out this article. In the last couple weeks, a couple tournaments…

A few days ago, Zelda Dungeon writer David Lasby released a daily debate which essentially vouched for Twilight Princess’ opening in regard to a recent episode of The Champions’ Cast. After finishing the article, I took a trip to the comment section. Here, I stumbled upon quite the exchange of messages, wherein commenters were debating whether Zelda fans play the games for the heartwarming and growth-filled storylines, or the exciting and fast-paced gameplay. When I find myself discussing The Legend…

Zelda fans the world over have dreamed of Link someday getting his own Paper Mario-style adventure. Well, thanks to a new skin mod from creator AlexByRuizZ, the Hero of Time can finally set out on a parchment-themed pilgrimage. In the mod, a cute-as-a-button paper Link (inspired by the recent fan animation by 64 Bits) replaces Mario as the playable character in portions of Paper Mario: The Origami King. As the skin is still in beta, Link cannot complete the whole…

I’ve seen a lot of plushies of various Zelda characters throughout the series — Link, Zelda, Makar, and a handful of other characters, but not many creatures. The Breath of the Wild Bokoblin seemed like a strange choice — sure it’s distinctive creature design, but it doesn’t have the cute factor of other creatures like a Moogle or Pikachu (or really any Pokemon for that matter). If I could have my pick for a Zelda creature that I would get…

Hey there, everyone! We’re back once again with Zelda Dungeon’s weekly Caption Contest! In honor of Shark Week, I recently took to my soapbox to explain why the Zelda series needs more sharks. Believe it or not, but The Legend of Zelda didn’t feature a single shark until Ocarina of Time, and even then, it was a minor easter egg with no explanation. This week’s contest will honor this poor soul, who, despite his size and strength, must spend eternity…
