Nintendo’s Breath of the Wild debuted on March 3rd, 2017. This historic game has been out over five years now, and we are still discovering unique nuances that the developers peppered into the game’s structure. Most recently, Redditor u/justlookingfordragon posted a detailed analysis into the mysterious Yiga imposters that are scattered across Hyrule. The Yiga imposters are secretly Yiga Clan members disguised as Hylians traversing through Hyrule whom Link may encounter on his quest to defeat Calamity Ganon. From the outset,…

The Legend of Zelda has boasted its fair share of cute creatures across the series. Some are creatures that you interact with like the Koroks and the Kikwi, and there are others like the elusive Blupee that are just in the background for us to observe and enjoy. Today I would love to find out which creature in The Legend of Zelda series do you think is the cutest. Personally one of my favorite cute creatures, and my contender for…

Power, Wisdom, Courage — these three virtues of the Triforce establish what it means to be a true hero in the land of Hyrule. But to become worthy of them, specifically the Triforce of Courage, Link often has to bravely face many hardships and trials to prove himself. This particular side of the Sacred Triangles has always been my favorite of the three pieces, ever since I was little. I used to think I liked it so much because it’s…

United Kingdom and Hong Kong-based toy and model company First 4 Figures recently announced another fantastic addition to their incredible line-up of Zelda statues. The latest in its line of licensed Zelda collectibles will feature “Link on Horseback” from Breath of the Wild, with a YouTube unveiling scheduled for August 16th, 2022 at 9am PDT/ 5pm BST.

Over a year ago, we interviewed Zelda YouTube theorist Cuccolover about the first Zelda theory on her own channel, titled Sacred Salvation, as well as the differences between self-publishing videos and writing for other channels (which she had done previously). Sacred Salvation was only the first part of an overall theory which was planned to be split into three parts. With time, we’ve finally gotten the second video titled Divinity’s Doom, which you can watch above! Beginning where Sacred Salvation…

Which do you prefer, blisters on your heels, or a sore rump from riding? Perhaps you enjoy a little bit of both. With Hyrule being such a vast kingdom (continent?) in Breath of the Wild, Link is going to be racking up the mileage as we explore every section of the map, more than once if you’re as dedicated as me. We are given two ways to get around. Sure, there’s always fast travel for those long distant trips, but…

Burnout. You hear it a lot from employees who work extremely long hours, have overwhelming tasks, and/or work in people-facing environments. You know you’re on the edge of burnout when you feel mentally, emotionally, and physically stressed. I’m an airline worker, and sadly, I feel the symptoms of burnout. Through the midst of flight cancellations and angry passengers, the thought came to me: out of all the Zelda games, which Link and Zelda have potentially faced burnout? Let’s talk about…

The summer off-season is beginning to come to a close, and yet the blazing summer heat continues. At this annual intersection, I often find myself both excited for the coming academic working year and filled with angst that I haven’t been able to take more time off to relax. It’s times like these when I turn to meditating on the aesthetic or experiential things that make me happy – like Zelda! Odds are if you’re reading this, you love Zelda…

Taking a look at the Legend of Zelda series, I often focus in on the journey of our favorite, green-clad Link in most games. Obviously out of all the characters in Hyrule, he definitely goes through the most challenging and turbulent journey, right? Well, yes. But also no. In many adventures we have seen so far, Princess Zelda, Link’s counterpart, often has just as many (if not more) trials to face and overcome just as our hero does. There’s Princess Zelda in…

Most Zelda fans have had gripes about the inclusion of certain companion characters in the series at one point or another. Navi’s “Hey! Listen!” heard one too many times in Ocarina of Time can be grating and distracting. Skyward Sword‘s Fi is a downright divisive character, with players often either loving her and her cool design as the spirit of the Master Sword, or hating her and her penchant for frequent interruptions and obvious information dumps. Other companions in the…
