Anyone who has played through Tears of the Kingdom can tell you that the beginning can be tough. Link has been knocked back to a weaker version of himself and depends on tree branches for offense and wooden shields for defense. When I first started, I heard the “Game Over”  music so much that my preschooler would hear it and say, “S’okay, Mommy, try again,” without even looking up from what he was doing.

CarbotAnimations captures that feeling perfectly in their two short animations depicting the humorous side of Tears of the Kingdom. The first video, “So I Tried Zelda [Tears of the Kingdom],” will be familiar to anyone who has given the game a try. Link fails over and over again at seemingly simple tasks until he’s stricken with the inspiration to build a mech-like Zonai monstrosity that decimates his enemies and deletes their TikTok account.

Then, the second video, “Tutorial Island,” pokes fun at Rauru becoming impatient with Link’s crazy antics on the Great Sky Island. The antics recall the days of building bridges to solve every puzzle and testing the limits of what Link can do to the Koroks. Both videos offer plenty of laughs and are totally worth the two minutes it takes to watch both of them.

If you liked what CarbotAnimations has to offer, they have plenty of other videos parodying other games like Baldur’s Gate III and Elden Ring. You can find them on TikTok, Instagram, and X.
