Nayru's Love is a type of Magic Spell that appears in Ocarina of Time. It is one of three spells Link can learn in the game.

Ocarina of Time

Like Din's Fire and Farore's Wind, Nayru's Love is a spell named for a Goddess - Nayru - which is bestowed upon Link by the Great Fairy of Magic.

Using Nayru's Love makes a blue crystal-like shield appear around Link. Link does not take damage while Nayru's Love is working, but strong attacks still knock him back. Ganon will still hurt Link, though. While using it, Link is unable to use any other items that require magic. When used, Nayru's Love disappears after a little less than a minute.

This spell is only available near the end of the game. After Link has completed the Shadow Temple and freed the Carpenters from the Gerudo's Fortress, he can head through the gate into the Haunted Wasteland. When Link traverses through the desert, he arrives at the Desert Colossus. If Link follows the wall on the right, he finds two palm trees. Link can then use a bomb between them to reveal an entrance to the Great Fairy's Fountain. Play Zelda's Lullaby on the Triforce symbol on the platform. The Great Fairy appears and grants Nayru's Love.


Non-Canon Appearances

This section describes a subject that is or may be outside the core Zelda canon.

Super Smash Bros. series

Nayru's Love is Zelda's default neutral special move in Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. In the Smash series, it is a barrier which appears only briefly rather than for almost a minute, but deals damage, reflects projectiles and briefly makes Zelda intangible.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U introduced two variant versions: Nayru's Rejection, which pushes opponents away but is otherwise weaker; and Nayru's Passion, which pulls in opponents but doesn't reflect.
