Love him or hate him, you cannot deny that Tingle has a certain mystique about him. What is it about this spandex-clad, rosy-cheeked, fairy obsessed gentleman that we just can’t get enough of? Is it the way he helps us navigate in Majora’s Mask? Those spellbinding magic words he created himself? Perhaps it’s that the long march of time makes us relate to him more and more with each passing year? Despite his numerous appearances—including the amazing Tingle-centric trio of games that…

Hello everybody and WELCOME to Zelda Dungeon’s MUSICAL MARCH MADNESS. The premise is simple: 64 songs will go head to head in a series of single elimination matches, with the winner advancing to the next round, until there is only ONE song left standing that can be called the Greatest Zelda Song Ever. This post will be updated DAILY with new match-ups, so make sure you bookmark it. Polls will last 24 HOURS, STARTING AND ENDING AT 5 PM PACIFIC…

Let’s get one thing out of the way first; ships are a tricky business. Of course, I’m not speaking about your standard river and seafaring vessels. I’m talking about the internet shorthand for a “relationship.” More specifically, the special pining fans do when they long for two characters to fall in love. Earlier this month we celebrated a Week of Love, in which we talked about relationships in The Legend of Zelda. Now, let’s think a little bit about relationship don’ts! Be…

I’m not one to bring up my personal life in my work for Zelda Dungeon, but with this week being the Week of Love, I felt compelled to lift the curtain a bit on what goes on IRL. Last year, something pretty big happened for me: I got married! And as much as I love my new wife with all my heart, I must admit that she is very much not a gamer. She had only held a controller a…

One of my favorite Zelda games of all-time has to be Hyrule Warriors. As someone who is a fan of the gameplay style of Dynasty Warriors, the Zelda variation was a very entertaining and fun experience throughout. Getting to see the heroes of multiple timelines come together and show off their abilities was really enjoyable. The story, while not the best in the series, was still a good enough adventure that I was proud to be a part of. Speaking…

Gorons: a stout race. Known for their stony hides, fraternal social structures, and penchant for dang delicious rock sirloin, they’ve been a series staple for many years. But what of the culture of our bouldering brothers? How do they fashion themselves? Just how much does their biology allow? In some games like Ocarina of Time, Skyward Sword, and even Breath of the Wild, we see them sprout little tufts of hair from their lil’ dumpling heads, some even sporting billowing beards…

Over the course of less than four years, we’ve received not one, not two, but three different versions of Hyrule Warriors.  Considering its most recent incarnation on the Switch is dubbed Definitive Edition, I think it’s safe to say that we’ve seen the last of these re-releases — at least until Nintendo releases its next console. And for as much as the subsequent iterations have added to the original Wii U game, the Zelda series boasts such a rich history that…

Andy and Taylor are back to cover a wide variety of different fans questions. On the table is Link’s Reawakening, our thoughts on Lana from Hyrule Warriors, which Nintendo 64 game needs a sequel, Horizon: Zero Dawn impressions, and… what each Zelda race smells like?? It’s another episode full of fun and shenanigans, and just because it’s Taylor’s birthday, Andy doesn’t make fun of Young Link… that much! Listen here, and get ready for next week as Andy finally makes…

Sheik remains one of my favorite parts of Ocarina of Time. The mystery of the character and their knowledge of time travel made her a good addition to the latter half of the game as Link’s guide. As cool as Sheik was though, the handling of the character wasn’t done especially well – with Zelda being immediately captured as soon as the disguise was dropped. Concept art of Sheik’s possible appearance in Twilight Princess inspired Super Smash Bros. Brawl and…

In the past several years, visual media like movies and video games have progressively become more inclusive by portraying all kinds of people. From The Shape of Water to Avatar: The Last Airbender, to The Dragon Prince and Moss, it proves that these characters aren’t defined by their disability (no matter what it is), and it instead becomes their strength. In particular, I’ve sign language to be the most interesting inclusion because it requires hiring interpreters on staff to ensure…
