||  Part Sixty-Eight  ||  Part Seventy  || Part Sixty-Nine “What are you?” Osmond asked. The glowing eyes narrowed as he raised his hand over his head. He snapped his fingers and a massive broadsword that Osmond would have needed two hands to wield, appeared in his hand. He swung it around over his head and pointed its flat head down at Osmond. In the blink of an eye, he was charging downward at Osmond. Osmond, reacting just in time, raised…

In every Legend of Zelda game released so far, Princess Zelda has always been… well… a princess. On rare occasions we have seen her either disguise herself as a different character (Sheik in Ocarina of Time) or be entirely unaware of her royal bloodline and true name (Tetra in The Wind Waker). But in both cases, she ultimately returns to her full standing as the Princess of Hyrule. In the latest installment of the series (as of the date of…

We’ve covered a lot of really cool Zelda-inspired titles here at Zelda Dungeon, but Mika and the Witch’s Mountain has to be my favorite that I’ve had the pleasure of covering. Created by developer Abraham Cozar, Mika and the Witch’s Mountain is an indie title that will be soaring to consoles and Steam later in 2023. This coming-of-age story takes you all across the sky as aspiring witch, Mika, as you soar on your broomstick, delivering packages to the island’s…

Greetings, all you Zelda fans! Are you ready to kick off another excursion into Zelda Dungeon’s weekly Caption Contest? After putting in a lot of work for last week’s Dungeon Week festivities, I’ve felt it necessary to kick back a little bit the past few days. And while searching my contest folder for this week’s featured image, I found a screenshot from The Wind Waker that perfectly reflects my relaxed state of mind. Now, let’s get this contest started before…

The Zelda series is full of colorful characters from all walks of life. Some of these strong personalities could benefit from a bit of professional help letting go of their hangups or fitting more comfortably into social circles. Ironically, the Zelda characters who need therapy the most are those who might be most resistant to it: Ganondorf, Zant, and Vaati to name a few of the biggest contenders. But there many other strange characters who might not be too keen…

Dungeons and Zelda go hand in hand. They are like Link and Princess Zelda, Kafei and Anju, and Revali and his pride — one would not be complete without the other! Throughout the past 37 (whoa!) years of Zelda, we have seen a plethora of unique dungeons and temples in each entry in the series. These dungeons have always been a staple throughout each adventure in Hyrule, and they often pose challenges for our favorite green-clad hero, giving him the…

Since it’s Dungeon Week here at Zelda Dungeon, there’s no better time than the present to get your Gooey’s Dungeon Dive fix! Over the holidays, Zelda Dungeon’s Gooey Fame released another episode of Gooey’s Dungeon Dive, which is now well into its ninth season focusing on The Wind Waker. This time around, the series takes us into the Tower of the Gods. Once again, Corey Richmond joins the fray as the pair of hosts discuss the dungeon’s Indiana Jones-eqsue vibes,…

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 is filled with tons of awe-inspiring dungeons to explore and conquer. But what makes a dungeon worthy of the top tier? What makes it memorable and enjoyable, and just plain good? In my own experience, I’ve always wondered if it’s the overall theme of a dungeon that makes it memorable. Each game in the series usually has a plethora of themed dungeons that range from desert, to lava, to water (everyone’s favorite, right?). I feel like a…

Get your headphones in, because this week, we’re taking a musical journey throughout the history of the Zelda series to rank and discuss every games main theme! We go back and find what works, what doesn’t, which games were short-changed, and which themes we would consider the best of all time. We’re playing every theme in the series, so sit back and groove out to the amazing music of the series. Don’t forget to let us know which main theme…
