We all remember the first time we guided Link to that location in that game and embarked on conquering that dungeon. For some, it’s hookshotting to the top of the broken steps and entering the Forest Temple. For others, it’s being fired from a canon and landing atop the City in the Sky. And for others still, it’s hefting the statue before the Ice Palace. Each of these temples features one theme; be it forest, sky, or ice, these themes…

Scrolling through the Twitter timeline as a Zelda fan looking for Zelda-themed art is like being a kid in a candy store! However, a really cool series of art began by the artist Stoic Seraphim in September of last year has really stood out. The prompt: If Fierce Deity’s Mask was an item in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.   ~If Fierce Deity Mask was an Item in Smash: Sora~#SmashBros #Zelda #KingdomHearts pic.twitter.com/B6aBGXgnyt — Stoic Seraphim (@Stoic_Miiverse) September 3, 2022 It…

I am a Zelda dungeon fanatic (both in terms of in-game dungeons and this glorious website where we currently reside). Few things bring me as much joy as a good dungeon full of whimsical puzzles and memorable baddies do. However, there are some dungeons in the Zelda series that not only made me scratch my head, but almost made me rage-quit a few times during my first playthrough. Being difficult doesn’t mean that these dungeons were bad, but good heavens,…

The Zelda series’ reputation for expertly crafted dungeons and puzzles that cleverly incorporate important key items is unparalleled in the video game industry. So much of what makes the series special is the emphasis on coming up with creative solutions and thinking outside the box, and these principles are perfectly encapsulated in Zelda‘s dungeons.   What Makes a Dungeon Good? There isn’t just one thing that makes a dungeon memorable and fun to explore. There are many factors that come…

From the very start of the series, dungeons have been intrinsic to the identity of The Legend of Zelda. Whether they be levels, palaces, temples, cisterns, or Divine Beasts, these structures are in many ways collectively a crucial ingredient of the whole Zelda franchise. These areas, more than any other, sell the heroism, adventure, fantasy, and sense of discovery for which we come to Zelda again and again. “Dungeon” is in the name of this website for a reason, after…

||  Previous Chapter  ||  Next Chapter  || “We can’t bring hell to Kakariko,” I protested. “Don’t your people live there?” Small puffs of smoke rose from the unsuspecting village in the distance. It stole Impa’s attention as she strangled the handle of her sword. “Your concern is noted. It can’t be helped,” her voice wavered, as if trying to convince herself of this fact. “My home is the only place I can perform a seal.” Ah, but he moved to the windmill to…

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask holds a special place in the hearts of many Zelda fans. Released only two years after Ocarina of Time, it was an amazing achievement in the gaming industry to put out a game that quickly as a follow-up to the success of its predecessor. Its three-day cycle that affected gameplay, its numerous side quests that focused on characterization, and its darker themes of loss, grief, and even death make it unique among the Zelda series, let…

||  Previous Chapter  ||  Next Chapter  || I had no idea what the hidden treasure of the Sheikah could be. Old man Shikashi was the resident expert on the mysterious tribe, although his musings boarded more on rumour. Perhaps a dangerous weapon? A spell or a song?  Whatever the truth, the General kept referring to the entity as a ‘he’ which meant she knew him. Ganondorf’s shadow beast had once been flesh and bone. King Hyrule led his soldiers to form a barrier…

Hey there, Zelda fans! Are you ready for another exciting edition of Zelda Dungeon’s weekly Caption Contest? Last week was the first contest of 2023, and to celebrate the New Year’s sense of transformation, we highlighted a classic moment from Majora’s Mask. But, as we all know, our hero Link doesn’t just undergo transformations in that Nintendo 64 classic; he transforms in many games! In fact, he takes on a pretty drastic transformation in Twilight Princess.   Last Week’s Contest:…
