Ocarina of Time Races
- Main article: Hylian

- Main article: Sheikah
The Sheikah are a race of ancient humanoids who were an advanced civilization with power and wisdom that saved Hyrule numerous times. They seem to live in a state of perpetual near-extinction.

- Main article: Kokiri
The Kokiri are a race of children that never grow up, living in the Kokiri Forest under the watch of the Great Deku Tree, who is said to be their father.
"Hey, have you seen your old friends? None of them recognized you with your grown-up body, did they? That's because the Kokiri never grow up! Even after seven years, they're still kids!"
- Main article: Goron
The Gorons are brown/gold, mountain-dwelling creatures that are made out of rock and feed on rock. All Gorons refer to themselves and each other as male; many Gorons have mentioned having brothers, fathers, and sons, but no mothers or sisters.
"I wonder how the Gorons fared after the Great Calamity."
- Main article: Zora
The Zora is a race of aquatic folk split into two subspecies: River Zora and Sea Zora. Though named after their most frequented habitat, River Zora can be found in the sea and vice versa. Their main distinctions instead are their morphology and their temperament.
"The Zoras come from Zora's Domain in northeast Hyrule. An aquatic race, they are longtime allies of Hyrule's Royal Family. I heard that only the Royal Family of Hyrule can enter Zora's Domain..."
