This week LegendZelda.net is having a daily top 5 post. To kick it off they have a great article featuring the top 5 cut scenes from the Legend of Zelda series! The article features scenes from Link’s Awakening, Ocarina of Time, Wind Waker and Twilight Princess. It seems as though the author is choosing the scenes for lots of reasons ranging from just plain fun to a more emotional and shocking cut scene. Whether the cut scenes are silly or gut wrenching, they all are part of the reason why we love The Legend of Zelda series.
The author’s number 1 pick is from twilight princess:
Our last, and number 1 scene in the Legend of Zelda series is the ending scene to Twilight Princess. In this final cut-scene, Midna, Zelda, and Link have gathered and are saying their good-byes. At this moment, Midna begins to say something to Link that has led to fan speculation and many a fan-fic.
Is she saying that she loves Link? Maybe. Who knows, as she quickly censors herself and sheds a tear. That tear then floats into the mirror, which connects the Twilight Realm with Hyrule, and shatters it into thousands of pieces. Midna leaves Hyrule forever with all connections to the Twilight Realm seemingly gone.
Personally I’m inclined to agree with the author. Twilight Princess has some of out favorite characters, and while some hardcore Zelda fans put it at the bottom of their top Zelda games, they can’t deny the emotional connection that you have to the characters. After all of the trials and tribulations you have been through, this scene is very special and as the author noted, it leaves a lot up to your imagination.
Do you have a different favorite? Did the author leave something out? Let us know your opinions in the comments.
