The Other Hero is the last stage of the Linkle's Tale arc of Legend Mode in Hyrule Warriors Legends and Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition. It takes place in the aftermath of Liberation of the Triforce, while Link and Zelda are returning the Master Sword to the Temple of the Sacred Sword. Linkle finally arrives at her destination, and helps Impa and the remaining Hyrulean army to quell a final rebellion by the remnants of Ganondorf's army.


"The dark beast Ganon had been defeated by Link and his allies. Hyrule Castle was free from the clutches of the powerful darkness.
Together, Zelda and Link set out for the Temple of the Sacred Sword. There they would seal away a fragment of the evil spirit.
This, surely, would bring peace back to the land.
Or so they believed. But no sooner had Link and Zelda departed when a new horde of monsters approached Hyrule Castle.
Ganondorf had fallen, and the monsters were left without a leader. But still, they showed no hesitation in attacking innocent Hyruleans.
Without Link or Zelda, or the allies who had come to their aid from other worlds, Hyrule Castle was left quite defenseless.
In order to protect the people of the land, Impa gathered together battle-weary soldiers whose wounds had not even begun to heal.
This, then, would be their sacrifice for Hyrule. They fought as valiantly as they could.
At that moment, a girl approached the battlefield.
Linkle's journey had been plagued by false starts from the moment she left her village. But she had finally arrived at Hyrule Castle.
She witnessed the brave soldiers struggling to defeat the attacking monsters. Their courage kindled her spirit, and Linkle knew that the time had come to fulfill her destiny.
She gripped tightly the compass hanging around her neck and readied herself to save Hyrule. Without another thought, Linkle leapt into the fray amid the hordes of screeching monsters.
