Appearances

The Wind Waker

In The Wind Waker, the Hero's New Clothes are an unlockable item that only appears after completing the game once. The concept of the Hero's New Clothes comes from the fairy tale of the Emperor's New Clothes. After restarting the game on the same save file, Grandma gives Link these clothes instead of the classic Hero's Clothes. The clothes are described as being visible only to those who are honest, and Link is unable to see them.[1][2] With them, Link is seen in his Outset Island clothes throughout the entire game, due to the actual outfit being invisible or, if the reference to the Emperor's New Clothes story is taken into account, nonexistent.

Phantom Hourglass

The Hero's New Clothes also appear in Phantom Hourglass as the first item in the game's trading sequence, which in the end grants Link the Swordsman's Scroll. Link receives it from the Man of Smiles as a thank you for rescuing him, but like in The Wind Waker, he is unable to see anything.[3] He tells Link that they were worn by an ancient hero.[4] When Link takes them to Nyeve, he immediately "senses" the Hero's New Clothes.[5] If Link gives him the Hero's New Clothes, Nyeve exchanges it for the Kaleidoscope.[6][7]
