This week at Zelda Dungeon, we’re focusing on the many companion characters that have made an appearance in The Legend of Zelda. From Navi to Fi, each of us has had companions that we liked more than others. In the same way, each of us has had companion characters that we despised. No matter how we felt about any given companion character, each of them, unfortunately, left Link behind at the end of the game, and some in sadder ways than others. While…

Majora’s Mask has always been seen as an oddball entry in the Zelda series’ history, a black sheep among its brethren, a game and story that was never afraid to be a little twisted, a little unhinged, a little hairy. Surrounded by conspiracy theories regarding terminal Termina’s alternative world being that of purgatory, with dark dilemmas, warped characters and some form of tragedy permeating each compass point, its easy to see why. And on an initial quest to find his beloved…

It’s Companion Week over here at Zelda Dungeon, and we’re getting the week started with a bang! This week, the boys sit down to discuss every Zelda Companion EVER. Buckle in, because it’s a long one; we discuss our favorites, least favorites, weigh in on how usefulness affects our liking, and debate what exactly constitutes a companion. Is Navi really as annoying as they say? Is Midna really as great as people make her out to be? Is it time…

Happy Monday, friends and foes! I hope you’re ready another exciting entry of the Zelda Dungeon Caption Contest. Today we kicked off Companion Week, a celebration of Link’s many partners and allies throughout the Zelda series. Some of you may have already checked out today’s Daily Debate (Maybe I should have translated the idea into a full-on editorial instead of a debate article?), which considers the likelihood of a Zelda companion turning to a life of evil. I made the…

Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Red Hood and Batman. Xehonort and Ansem the Wise. The theme of masters and apprentices is as old as fiction itself, and as is the case with many relationships, these pairings don’t often end well. In all of the above examples, former friends and peers were turned against each other. Some by circumstance; some by choice. A feeling of being held back or unappreciated is common, as is a good old-fashioned desire for power. In…

We’re kicking off Companion Week here at Zelda Dungeon, which means that over the next several days, we’ll be celebrating Link’s many partners, mentors, and friends. As fans and as fellow adventurers in the Zelda world, we hold these companions with special regard; some more than others, but you get the point. There will be plenty of praise showered on these Zelda companions over the next few days, but we figured we’d start the week by looking at them in…

Whether Link is traveling by foot or on a boat, many of the games in the Zelda series have a little trick or two you can do to make traveling a little faster. The most common method is rolling. This can be done in Ocarina of Time, Majora’s Mask, Wind Waker, and more. Oddly our hero has endless stamina and gets around faster by somersaulting, but you have to put up with his repeated cries each time you do it….

Zelda is no stranger to innovation in the gaming world. After all, A Link to the Past and Ocarina of Time helped set the stage for many gameplay elements in a variety of genres for many years to come. But what about other games and series? Zelda isn’t the only great IP on the market and in the creative industry, everybody can benefit from a little bit of collaboration from time to time. Each genre of gaming tends to have its tropes,…

Chapter 24: Omens A booming voice echoed throughout the grove, catching Link by surprise. “It has been a long time since that sword has been wielded….” Link dropped his arm to the side, his right hand still clutching the blade of legend, the Master Sword, as he looked around for the source of these words. Listening carefully to the ambience around him, he picked up on the creaking of wood, the rustling of leaves, and the rattling of what he…
