- Main article: Link
Link is the Legendary Hero and the main protagonist within Oracle of Ages. After being summoned by the power of the Triforce, he awakens within a mysterious forest. Shortly after, he saves Impa who is being attacked by a group of Octoroks. The two then journey to meet up with Nayru, the Oracle of Ages. It is revealed that Impa was, at the time, being controlled by the Dark Sorceress Veran, who, after getting passed a block that only Link could move, possess Nayru and gains the power to travel through time. After traveling 400 years in the past, Veran's evil deeds start to alter the present, causing chaos throughout the land. It then becomes the goal of Link to stop Veran and save the land of Labrynna.Link overcomes obstacles in eight different dungeons,and meets a whole cast of characters in the past and present as he journeys through time to collect the eight Essences of Time. With the Essences in hand, Link restores the Maku Tree's memory, gains the power needed to defeat Veran, and lives up to his destiny as the Hero of the Essences. His journey also takes him to the land of Holodrum, where he must stop Onox there and prevent the resurrection of the Evil King Ganon, a deeper plan devised by the witches Koume and Kotake.
- Main article: Ganon
After completing his adventures in both Labrynna and Holodrum, Link finds out that the cause of Veran's mischief was the result of a bigger plan devised by the witches Koume and Kotake to resurrect the evil king Ganon. The actions of Veran and Onox caused the Flames of Sorrow and the Flame of Destruction to be lit. In an attempt to light the third and final flame for their ritual, Twinrova kidnaps Princess Zelda to be used as a sacrifice. Although Link is able to defeat Twinrova and save Zelda from the ritual, he cannot stop the resurrection of Ganon, as Twinrova ends up sacrificing their own body as a vessel for the evil king.The resulting incarnation of Ganon lacks much intelligent thought, though he does show knowledge of who he is. Still, Ganon proves to be the toughest obstacle that Link must overcome if he is to restore peace to the world and take his destined place in hisory as the Legendary Hero. Through a Linked Game, Link can go to a secret altar where they fight Ganon.
- Main article: Impa
Impa is the Royal Nurse for Princess Zelda and has cared for her since her birth. Impa was sent to Labrynna by Princess Zelda with instruction to bring Nayru back to Hyrule in order to protect her from shadows that surrounding her.

However, it is revealed that Veran had been controlling Impa and used Link to reach Nayru and possess her body.After reverting back to her normal self, she thanks Link for saving her. After seeing the symbol of the Triforce on Link's left hand, she tells Link that he is the hero that must save this world. She gives him the Wooden Sword, which was entrusted to her by Princess Zelda. Impa then takes refuge in Nayru's House for much of the game. In a Linked Game, Impa gives Link a Wooden Shield instead of the Wooden Sword.
- Main article: Maku Tree (Oracle of Ages)
The Maku Tree can be found in Lynna City and Lynna Village at the northeast part of town. The Maku Tree, who is female, is the guardian of Labrynna who Link first encounters shortly after Veran possesses Nayru's body and travels back in time. During their conversation, the Maku Tree suddenly disappears. Upon travelling back in time to investigate, Link finds the young Maku Tree being attacked by a group of Moblins. Link saves the Maku Tree, which negates her disappearance in the present. As a result of saving her life, the Maku Tree then falls in love with Link. Upon returning to the present, the Maku Tree instructs Link to gather the eight Essences of Time so that she may regain her memory. With them, Link helps the Maku Tree to regain her memory so that she can aid Link putting a stop to Veran.
- Main article: Nayru (Oracle)
Nayru is a young, wise, and serene woman who has one of the finest voices in all of Labrynna. She spends her days singing to both the humans and animals of the land, as well as occasionally playing her Harp of Ages. However, Nayru's true identity is that of the Oracle of Ages, which grants her the power to control the currents of time. Nayru has a close friend from her childhood in Ralph, who also serves as her protector and is always nearby. Veran, after posing as Impa and manipulating Link, is able to gain access to Nayru and take control over her body. With the power of the Oracle of Ages, Veran gains the ability to travel back 400 years into the past and wreak havok throughout Labrynna, thus affecting the events of the present. One of Link's first objectives then is to not just stop Veran, but if possible, save Nayru as well. Eventually, he is able to do so after a confrontation at Ambi's Palace in the past. Shortly after, Veran assumes control of Queen Ambi's body. After being freed from the clutches of Veran, Nayru returns home where she remains until the end of Link's quest. Once Link defeats Veran for the final time, Nayru warns him of problems in the land of Holodrum. Link then must travel to this land, where he eventually saves Din, the Oracle of Seasons, and ultimately battles against Twinrova and the evil king Ganon.
- Main article: Zelda

However, Impa never quite completed that journey as planned and the evil power of Veran took control of Impa, and eventually the Oracle of Ages herself. After Link battles through time and defeats Veran, it is revealed the Veran is just a pawn in a grander scheme to resurrect the evil king Ganon. In order to do so, three flames must be lit, the Flame of Destruction and the Flame of Sorrow had both been lit when Link defeated General Onox and Veran, but the third flame had not been lit yet. Twinrova captured Princess Zelda with the intent of sacrificing her body and light the Flame of Despair and complete the resurrection of Ganon. Fortunately, Link was able to prevent this, and rescue Princess Zelda. Instead, Twinrova sacrificed themselves, but it did not go as planned, and Ganon was just a mindless beast who Link would feat once and for all.
- Main article: Queen Ambi
Queen Ambi was the ruler of Lynna Village 400 years before the present day events of Oracle of Ages and was well respected by the townsman. This all changed when Veran, who possessed the body of Nayru, came from the future and started to manipulate the Queen. Ambi had been constructing Ambi's Tower, which she wanted to use to someday find her husband. However, Veran convinced her to keep building the tower to the heavens, where she would someday be known as one of the greatest queens ever. Queen Ambi sent every man in Lynna Village to work on the construction of what was now known as the Black Tower. Further manipulating Ambi, Veran had gotten most of the people close to Ambi to be sent away, ensuring Veran's power. Veran was in need of Mystery Seeds and convinced Ambi to offer a reward to anybody that could bring them mystery seeds. Soon, Link showed up with Mystery Seeds and this led to a trade in which Queen Ambi gave Link some Bombs. Later in the quest when Ambi had left the palace, Link returned and freed Nayru from Veran. However, Queen Ambi soon returned and hinted that she had suspicions that Nayru had been corrupted. Before long, Veran was able to possess the body of Queen Ambi. Now with control over Queen Ambi, Veran pushed even harder for the Black Tower to be complete.However, Link saved her by defeating Veran in Battle after collecting the 8 essences.

Just as Link arrives to Labrynna and meets Nayru, Ralph insists that he does not need Link's help to protect her. Moments later, Veran possesses the body of Nayru, leaving a very distraught Ralph unable to fight Veran as that would also mean striking the body of Nayru. After Veran travels through a Time Portal to the past, Ralph quickly sets off to find and save Nayru.Ralph acts as Link's friendly rival throughout the game, as they both have similar ambitions. When Link battles Veran for the first time, separating Nayru's body from Veran, the Dark Sorceress shortly after takes control of Ambi's body. Link and Ralph are safely warped back to the present by the power of Nayru, but Ralph quickly returns to the past to get his revenge on Veran.Though he is the descendant of Queen Ambi, Ralph confronts Veran at the Black Tower near the end of the game, making the choice to fight Veran while she is in Ambi's body even though defeating Ambi will cause him to vanish from existence. Ralph is unsuccessful in defeating Veran, but Link is able to fill in and save Queen Ambi while also defeating Veran.
- Main article: Twinrova
Koume and Kotake (together known as Twinrova) are two witches whose intentions are to revive the evil king Ganon. They enact their plan by persuading Veran to wreak havoc in the land of Labrynna, and Onox to do the same in Holodrum. The actions of Veran and Onox light the Flame of Sorrow and Flame of Destruction, two of the three needed in the ritual to revive Ganon. Though Link put an end to Veran and Onox, the damage done to Labrynna and Holodrum proves to still be enough to light the first two flames. To finish the ritual and light the final Flame of Despair, Twinrova kidnaps Princess Zelda to use as a sacrifice. Once Link is able to defeat Koume and Kotake separately, the two fuse into one entity and become even more powerful foe called Twinrova. After Link defeats Twinrova, thus saving Princess Zelda, the witches choose to sacrifice their own body as a vessel to revive Ganon. However, because the ritual is not carried out using Zelda as planned, only a mindless, yet dangerous Ganon is able to be revived.

Eventually, Link travels to the past and battles with Veran to frees the body of Nayru from her grasp. However, before Link can kill her, Veran possesses Queen Ambi and quickly flees to the Black Tower.After collecting the eight Essences of Time, Link goes to the Black Tower itself, where Veran has taken refuge. Though Link is successful in freeing Queen Ambi's body from Veran, she desperately reveals her true form of a Beedle, a Bee, and a Spider to Link in an attempt to stop him.
