A Link to the Past (SNES) Quote FAQ

Made by David Butler for The Legends of Zelda
Version 2.1, Last modified 6/30/2004

The History Behind This FAQ

In the course of running my web site, The Legends of Zelda, I found that it would be helpful to have every important quote from the Zelda games written down exactly the way it appears in the game. Why? Well, when you're arguing your point of view about the storyline, it helps to have quotes to back you up. It's not helpful to say, "I think somebody said this," and then base a theory upon it. Also, the ability to copy and paste quotes would make my life, and many other lives, a lot easier. So, the idea for the Zelda 64 and Zelda 3 Quote FAQs was born.

The original quote FAQs only had quotes that I had meticulously written down and then typed by hand. So it was open to inaccuracies and incompleteness. This new quote FAQ, however, was made from my text dump of ALttP. (See my Emulation section for more information about text dumps.) So, every quote from the game is in here somewhere, and appears just as it does in the game (or at least as close as possible). Unlike the old quote FAQ, this version is only available in HTML format. I may offer it in TXT format in the future, but not anytime soon.

This quote FAQ, and other quote FAQs, are available on my web site, in the Text Resources section (in The Library). If you are interested in the text changes made in the GBA version of ALttP, I have a comparison table available in the same section, which has the same format as this file. I also have a TXT formatted ALttP GBA quote FAQ.

How To Use This FAQ

There are several things you should know about the formatting of the text:

  1. All link breaks are preserved (unlike in the original quote FAQ), and screenfuls of text are separated with two hard returns. While this sometimes breaks up sentences, it makes it clear where screen breaks were, and I considered that to be more important than readability.
  2. This quote FAQ supports the font "Return of Ganon," which is based on the ALttP screen text. Install this font on your system if you want the full experience. The font can be downloaded on my site, in the multimedia section. It can also be downloaded at Zone 38.

All the quotes appear in table cells. Some table cells contain a section description (these are red), and some cells contain a quote description (these are blue). To find a quote by a specific person, you can either use the table of contents below to find the section you want, or you can use your viewer's Find function (usually Edit-Find or Control-F) to search for specific text. The quotes are listed in semi-chronological, semi-rational order (i.e. the logical flow of the game), so you can try to find a specific quote by going to where you would logically first talk to the person in the game. Sometimes I also list subsequent quotes by the same person underneath one quote heading. For example, if you go back to Sahasrahla during the course of the game he says different things. All these quotes can be found under one quote heading, located in the section after you beat the Palace of Darkness. I did this for convenience, so that one person's quotes wouldn't be scattered all over the place.

Note that I typed the ending and credits by hand. Also note that all the quotes outside of Main Story and Sidequests/Hearsay/Meetings are basically unordered. If I have a quote in the wrong place, please let me know.


Main Story

Long ago, in the beautiful
kingdom of Hyrule surrounded
by mountains and forests...

legends told of an omnipotent
and omniscient Golden Power
that resided in a hidden land.

Many people aggressively
sought to enter the hidden
Golden Land...

But no one ever returned.
One day evil power began to
flow from the Golden Land...

So the King commanded seven
wise men to seal the gate to
the Land of the Golden Power.

That seal should have remained
for all time...

... ...But, when these events
were obscured by the mists of
time and became legend...
A mysterious wizard known as
Agahnim came to Hyrule to
release the seal. He eliminated

the good King of Hyrule...
Through evil magic, he began
to make descendants of the
seven wise men vanish, one

after another.
And the time of destiny for
Princess Zelda is drawing
Rescuing Zelda
Help me...

Please help me...

I am a prisoner in the dungeon
of the castle.
My name is Zelda.

The wizard, Agahnim, has done...
something to the other missing
girls. Now only I remain...

Agahnim has seized control of
the castle and is now trying to
open the seven wise men's

seal. ... ...
I am in the dungeon of the

Please help me...
Link, I'm going out for a
while. I'll be back by morning.
Don't leave the house.
What're you doing up this late,
kid? You can stay up when
you're grown up! Now go home!
I see you brought a map so you
don't get lost. (Press the
X Button to see your map).
You look strong for a kid. How
much can you lift? (Press the
A Button while touching a thing

to lift it.)
I'll bet you can't wait until you
are old enough to use a sword!
(Press the B Button to use

your sword when you get it.)
That mark on your map must be
your destination.
You can often find valuables
in chests. (Press the A
Button in front of a chest to

open it.)
Us soldiers have been around,
kid. You can learn a lot from
us. But you already know that!

I am in the dungeon of the

I know there is a hidden path
from outside of the castle to
the garden inside.
Soldier guarding gate
Hey hey! You're not allowed in
the castle, son!
Go home and get some sleep!
Unnh... Link, I didn't want
you involved in this... I told
you not to leave the house...

Take my sword and shield and
listen. You can focus power in
the blade (hold the B Button).

...Then release it using the
secret technique handed down
by our people...

Link, you can do it!
Save the Princess...
Zelda is your... ... ...
Soldier on castle roof
After Agahnim took over,
everyone began to act

I suppose it's only
a matter of time before
I'm affected, too.
Zelda, Rescued
Thank you, Link. I had a
feeling you were getting close.
Link, listen carefully. The
wizard is magically controlling
all the soldiers in the castle.

I fear the worst for
my father...
The wizard is an inhuman fiend

with strong magical powers!
... ... ...

Do you understand?
Not at all
All right, let's get out of here
before the wizard notices. I
know a secret path, but first

we have to go to the
first floor. Let's go!
There is a secret passage in
the throne room that leads to
Sanctuary. I'm sure the old

man there will help us.
That ornamental shelf should
open. Do you have a light?
It's pitch dark inside and you

can't see without one.
If you're ready, let's go!
Help me push it from the left!
After passing through these
sewers, we will be very close
to Sanctuary!

Let's be careful!
Sanctuary is just beyond that
door. Pull the switch over
You have to pull the lever to
open the door. (Press the A
Button and hold Down on the

Control Pad. )
Loyal Sage
Princess Zelda, you are safe!
Is this your doing, Link?
Yes, it was Link who helped
me escape from the dungeon!
When I was captive the wizard

said, "Once I have finished with
you, the final one, the seal of
the wise men will open."

Link, you must not let the
land of Hyrule fall into the

wizard's clutches.
If he releases the seal of the
seven wise men, evil power will

overwhelm this land.
Before that happens...
before it's too late... destroy

the wizard before he destroys
all of Hyrule! You can do it!
You can...
Loyal Sage
I sense that a mighty evil
force guides the wizard's
actions and augments his

magical power. The only
weapon potent enough to
defeat the wizard is the

legendary Master Sword.
It is said that the village elder
is a descendant of one of the

seven wise men. Maybe
he can tell you more...
I will mark his house on your

map. But watch your every
move! I am certain that the
castle soldiers will be looking

for you now! .........
I will hide Princess Zelda here.
Do not worry! Seek the elder!

Do you understand?
Not at all
Loyal Sage
Meet the elder of the village
and get the Master Sword.
If you defeat the wizard, the
soldiers may regain
their sanity.

Go, seek the Pendants!
Take the three Pendants into
the Lost Woods. The Master
Sword awaits you there.
Link, be careful out there!
I know you can save Hyrule!
You should follow the marks
the elder made on your map
when you explore.

If you don't know what to do
next, you can also visit a
fortune teller.
Link, you are wonderful!
As I thought, you have the
power of the Hero inside you!

Now, you should get the Master
Sword. I am confident that you
can defeat the evil wizard!
Sahasrahla and East Palace
@ WANTED! This is the
criminal who kidnapped Zelda.
Call a soldier if you see him!
Old woman in Kakariko
Who? Oh, it's you, Link!
What can I do for you, young
man? The elder? Oh, no one

has seen him since the wizard
began collecting victims...
... ... ...

What? Master Sword? Well, I
don't remember the details
exactly, but...
Long ago, a prosperous people
known as the Hylia inhabited
this land...

Legends tell of many treasures
that the Hylia hid throughout
the land...

The Master Sword, a mighty
blade forged against those
with evil hearts, is one of

them. People say that now it
is sleeping deep in the forest...
... ... ...

Do you understand the legend?
Not at all
Anyway, look for the elder.
There must be someone in the
village who knows where he is.

You take care now, Link...
Old woman, after getting Master Sword
Ohhh,Link. You've changed!
You look marvelous... Please
save us from Agahnim

the wizard!
Man in Blind's hideout
Yo Link! This house used
to be a hideout for a gang of

What was their leader's name...
Oh yeah, his name was Blind and
he hated bright light a lot.
Kid by Sahasrahla's house
Hi Link!
Elder? Are you talking about
the grandpa? OK, but don't

tell any of the bad people
about this.
He's hiding in the palace past

the castle.
I will mark the spot on your
map. Here you are...
Did you meet the grandpa? If
all the bad people go away, he
can come back to the village.
Running Man
I can't believe you caught me!
With your speed it must have
been easy to kidnap Zelda...

You don't look like such a bad
guy, though...
Anyway, because you have

such quick feet, it might be a
good idea to run and bash into
many things...

For example, the trees in this
village have many useful things
hanging in their branches...

Well, just try it, OK?!
Old man drinking in pub
Whoa... I saw her.
A very nice young lady at the
Waterfall Of Wishing in the

hills where the river
Link, you should meet her

at least once. I'm sure you will
like her.
Old woman sweeping
Oh, Link. The rumors say
you kidnapped the Princess,
but I still trust you.
Woman spots Link
Hey! Here is Link, the
wanted man! Soldiers! Anyone!
Come quickly!
Man with overgrown yard
Hi, Link. Sorry about my
yard. It's a little over
grown. Thanks for visiting.

I'm glad to have company to
talk to. I will tell you an
interesting story.

There is a lake swimming with
Zoras at the source of the
river, but it is hard to find.

The treasure of Zora can turn
people into fish. Heh heh heh.
I'd love to see that.
I haven't had a chance to trim
my hedges recently. Thanks
for visiting anyway...

A while ago, there was a boy in
this village who could talk to
animals with his Flute.

He had a pet bird that flew
with him everywhere, but
he went to the mountain and

never returned.
Bug catching kid
I can't go out 'cause I'm sick...
Cough cough...
People say I caught this cold

from the evil air that is coming
down off the mountain...
Sniff sniff...

This is my bug-catching net.
I'll use it when I'm better, but
for now, I'll lend it to you.
Sniffle... I hope I get well
Cough cough...
Sniffle... Hey brother Link!
Do you have a bottle to keep
a bug in?

I see. You don't have one...
Cough cough...
I am, indeed, Sahasrahla, the
village elder and a descendent
of the seven wise men.

... ... Oh really?
Link, I am surprised a young
man like you is searching for

the sword of evil's bane.
Not just anyone can use that
weapon. Legends say only the

Hero who has won the three
Pendants can wield the sword.
... ... ...

Do you really want to find it?
Of Course!
Good. As a test, can you
retrieve the Pendant Of
Courage from the East Palace?

If you bring it here, I will tell
you more of the legend and
give you a magical artifact.

Now, go forward to the palace.
Sahasrahla, inside East Palace
Link, it is I, Sahasrahla. I
can talk to you telepathically
when you touch these tiles.

Here is a hint. You can use the
treasure hidden in this palace
to defeat armored foes.
Sahasrahla, after beating East Palace
Oh!? You got the Pendant Of
Courage! Now I will tell you
more of the legend...

Three or four generations ago,
an order of knights protected
the royalty of the Hylia.

These Knights Of Hyrule were
also guardians of the Pendant
Of Courage.

Unfortunately, most of them
were destroyed in the great
war against evil that took

place when the seven wise men
created their seal. Among the
descendants of the Knights Of

Hyrule a hero must appear.
...I see. Link, I believe you.
You should get the remaining

And carry this with you.
This is a treasure passed down

by the families of the wise
men. I want you to have it.
Sahasrahla, if you talk to him only after beating East Palace
You are correct, young man!
I am Sahasrahla, the village
elder and a descendent of the

seven wise men.
... ... ... What?
Link, I'm surprised a young

man like you is looking for the
sword of evil's bane. Not just
anyone can use that sword.

According to the tales handed
down by the Hylia, only the
Hero who has destroyed three

great evils and won the three
Pendants can wield the sword...
... ... ...

I see you have acquired the
Pendant of Courage. I will tell
you about the legend behind it.

Three or four generations ago,
an order of knights protected
the royalty of the Hylia.

These Knights Of Hyrule were
also guardians of the Pendant
Of Courage.

Unfortunately, most of them
were destroyed in the great
war against evil that took

place when the seven wise men
created their seal. Among the
descendants of the Knights Of

Hyrule a hero must appear.
...I see. Link, I believe you.
You should get the remaining

And carry this with you.
This is a treasure passed down

by the families of the wise
men. I want you to have it.
Sahasrahla, as you beat other dungeons
A helpful item is hidden in the
cave on the east side of Lake
Hylia. Get it!
Other relatives of the wise men
are hiding from the evil
wizard's followers.

You should find them.
Incredible! At last you have
the three Pendants... Now, you
should go to the Lost Woods.

If you are the true Hero, the
sword itself will select you.
... ... ...
I am too old to fight.
I can only rely on you.
Second Pendant, Desert of Mystery
Aginah, if you haven't gotten the Book of Mudora
I am Aginah. I sense something
is happening in the Golden Land
the seven wise men sealed...

This must be an omen of the
Great Cataclysm foretold by
the people of Hylian blood...

... ... ...
The prophecy says, "The Hero
will stand in the desert holding

the Book Of Mudora."
If you have the Book Of Mudora
you can read the language of

the Hylia People.
It should be in the house of
books in the village...

You must get it!
If you are the person who will
be The Hero...
Aginah, if you already have the Book of Mudora
Aha! It is the Book Of Mudora.
With it, you can read the
language of the Hylia people.
Aginah, after you get the Master Sword (?)
You are the true Hero...
I believe that you will return
peace to this land again.
Inscription in front of Desert Palace
To open the way to go forward,
Make your wish here
And it will be granted.
Sahasrahla, in Desert Palace
Link, it is I, Sahasrahla.
You must never fail to find all
the treasures in each dungeon.
Aginah, after beating Desert Palace
Your trial in the desert has
made you stronger. The blood
of the Hero must be in your

Not sure if this one is really Aginah
You have collected the three
If you are indeed the Hero who

has Wisdom, Courage and Power,
the Master Sword sleeping in
the forest will be yours.
Third Pendant, Tower of Hera
Sign by Death Mountain
Do not enter Death Mountain
without the King's permission!
Old man on Death Mountain
I don't know who you are, but
if you are going to go up
the mountain, will you take me

with you? I lost my lamp,
Uhhh... Watch your step.
There are holes in the ground.
Could you turn right here?

Young man, are you also going
to the mountain to look for the
Golden Power?

Just ahead is a mountain full
of monsters. Many people have
vanished in this mountain while

looking for the Golden Power.

I don't want to steer you
wrong, so please don't get too
involved in such a mad quest.
Uhh... There must be a Heart in
the bottle.
Uhh... Turn right here... ...
You know, I have a
granddaughter who is your

age... The King took her to the
castle and she never returned.
Kidnapping those maidens must

be part of the wizard's plot!
I'm sure he is trying to
somehow use the power of the

descendants of the wise
The missing maidens are still
alive somewhere. I believe that
a Hero will rescue them...

I wait for that day...
Uhh... These are dangerous
times... I talked too much.

Anyway... Thank you for your
kindness to an old man like me.
Uhh... I wanted to give you

this. If you wander into
a magical transporter, gaze
into this mirror.
The wizard has deceived the
King, and now he is trying to
open the way to the

Dark World. To complete
your quest, you will need
the Moon Pearl, which is in the

tower on top of the mountain.
All I can do for you now is to
comfort your weariness...

Come back here any time.
Sahasrahla, inside Death Mountain
Link, it is I, Sahasrahla.
You must somehow make your
way to the top of Spectacle

Rock. From there you can
reach the Tower of Hera on
top of Death Mountain.
Bouncy ball in Dark World
Oh? Who are you, Mr. Bunny?
This world is like the real
world, but evil has twisted it.

The Golden Power is what
changed your shape to reflect
what is in your heart and mind.

I am always changing my mind,
so I turned into a ball...
But if you have a ball called

the Moon Pearl, you can keep
your original shape here.
You didn't change your shape?
You aren't just a normal guy,
are you?
Guy kicking ball
What do you want?!
Do you have something to say
to me, silly rabbit?!

I came here to get the Power
Of Gold but now I'm a freak and
I can't go back to the real

world! If I only had the Moon
Pearl from the Tower Of Hera, I
could go back to my original

shape! I've got good reason
to be stressed out!
So back off! Shoo shoo!
WOW! Your shape didn't change!
You got the Moon Pearl, huh?
Sahasrahla, in Tower of Hera
Link, it is I, Sahasrahla the
elder. I have some advice...
In the dungeons, you can gaze

into the Magic Mirror to return
to the entrance at any time.
Do not forget this!
Link, it is I, Sahasrahla the
elder. An orb known as the
Moon Pearl is in this tower.

Whoever holds the Moon Pearl is
protected so that his form will
not change in the Dark World.

You must find it and escape
from the tower!
Don't forget the Moon Pearl...
Old man on Death Mountain, after Tower of Hera
The Moon Pearl will protect its
bearer from the magical air of
the Golden Land, so you can

keep your human shape there.
All I can do for you now is
comfort your weariness...

Come back here any time.
Link, I think the wizard
connected the two worlds
somewhere around the castle.

All I can do for you now is to
comfort your weariness...
Come back here any time.
Master Sword, Agahnim
Yo Link! A mysterious fog
has recently fallen over the
forest. We have to be careful!
Maybe it's nothing, but this
tree feels kind of strange as
we cut it...
Yo! The fog in the forest is
clearing. Thank you! We can
go there again! Hey brother!
-Not- getting the Master Sword
This is it! The Master Sword!

No, this can't be it... Too bad.

Suddenly, Sahasrahla contacts
you telepathically...
... ... ...

Link, it is extraordinary
that you won the Master Sword
that makes evil retreat...

With this shining sword, I
believe you can deflect the
wizard's evil powers.

The destiny of this land
is in your hands.

Please, Link...
Zelda contacting Link
Link! Help! The soldiers
are coming to Sanctuary!

... ... ...
Loyal Sage, last words
Link! You are a second too
late. I have failed... Zelda...
The soldiers have

abducted her.
They have taken her to
the castle.

You must find her before the
wizard works his magic.
Please...You are our only hope...
Sahasrahla, in Hyrule Castle
Listen well, Link.
Even with the Master Sword,
you cannot inflict physical

harm on the wizard.
You must find a way to return
his own evil magic power to him.
Ahah... Link!
I have been waiting for you!
Heh heh heh...

I was hoping I could make Zelda
vanish in front of your eyes.
Behold! The last moment of

Princess Zelda!
Ho ho ho... With this, the
seal of the seven wise men is
at last broken.

It is now only a matter of time
before evil power covers this

After all, the legendary Hero
cannot defeat us, the tribe of
evil, when we are armed with

the Power of Gold.
Ho ho ho... Now, I must go!
Oh, so?... You mean to say you
would like to be totally
destroyed? Well, I can make

your wish come true!
Grrrrugh! Well met! Like the
true Hero that you are...
But I am not ready to admit

defeat yet. I will draw you
into the Dark World!
Link, it is I, Sahasrahla.
I am communicating to you
across the void through

telepathy... The place where
you now stand was the Golden
Land, but evil power turned it

into the Dark World. The
wizard has broken the wise
men's seal and opened a gate

to link the worlds
at Hyrule Castle. In
order to save this half of the

world, the Light World, you
must win back the Golden
Power. You must also rescue

the seven maidens who Agahnim
sent to the Dark World. As
members of the blood-line of

the seven wise men, they have
power that will surely help you.
The maidens are locked in

hidden dungeons full of evil
creatures and dangerous traps.
The Palace of Darkness should

be your first goal in this world!
Link, I can rely on only
you. Please make this old

man's wishes come true.
I beg you!
But I sense your helplessness...
Before you go any further,
find the Moon Pearl on

Death Mountain. It will protect
you from the Dark World's
magic so you can keep your

heroic figure.
Palace of Darkness
Tree in Palace of Darkness area
You're new here, aren't you?
Did you come here looking for
the Power Of Gold?

Well, you're too late. It will
obey only the first person who
touches it.

The man who last claimed the
Power Of Gold wished for this
world. It reflects his heart.

Yes, I came here because of
greed for the Golden Power,
and look what happened to me...

To restore the Golden Land, a
person worthy of the Golden
Power must defeat the man who

created this place...
Until that time, I am stuck in
this bizarre shape.

But what a mischievous thing
to leave lying around...
The Power Of Gold...

Zelda, contacting Link from a tile in Dark Palace
Link, can you hear me?
It's me, Zelda. I am locked in
Turtle Rock on top of Death

Mountain. I know you are doing
your best, but please hurry...
Maiden in Dark Palace
Link, because of you, I can
escape from the clutches of
the evil monsters. Thank you!

...This world used to be the
Golden Land where the Triforce
was hidden.

But because Ganon, the boss
of thieves, wished it the world
was transformed...

I'm sure he's intending to
conquer even our Light World
after building his power here.

He is trying to open a larger
gate between worlds near the
castle using our powers.

But the gate is not open
completely yet...
If we seven maidens come

together, we can break the
barrier around Ganon's hiding

I will tell you where the other
girls are held. I believe you
will destroy Ganon.

I will return to my original
form at that time.
... ... ... ... ...
May the way of the Hero lead
to the Triforce.
Swamp Palace

Link, it is I, Sahasrahla.
Objects exist simultaneously in
both worlds with similar shapes.

Maiden in Swamp Palace
Link, because of you, I can
escape from the clutches of
the evil monsters. Thank you!

...The Triforce will grant the
wishes of whoever touches it,
as long as that person lives...

That is why it was hidden in
the Golden Land. Only a select
few knew of its location,

but at some point that
knowledge was lost...
The person who rediscovered

the Golden Land was
Ganondorf the evil thief.
Luckily, he couldn't figure out

how to return to the Light
...Well, remember that you

have magical powers, which only
The Hero can make the most of!
There are some other magical

warping points like the one you
saw on Death Mountain.
By using them you can go

find the evils hidden in the
Dark World. You are the only

one who can destroy
Ganondorf, the thief-no,
Ganon, the evil King Of

Skull Woods
Maiden in Skull Woods
Link, because of you, I can
escape from the clutches of

...Do you know the prophecy of
the Great Cataclysm?
This is the way I heard it...

If a person who has an evil
heart gets the Triforce, a Hero
is destined to appear...

...and he alone must face the
person who began the Great

If the evil one destroys the
Hero, nothing can save the
world from his wicked reign.

Only a person of the Knights Of
Hyrule, who protected the
royalty of Hylia, can become

the Hero... You are of their
blood-line, aren't you? Then
you must rescue

Zelda without fail.

the attacks of evil monsters.

I heard that the Knights Of
Hyrule were nearly wiped out in
that battle...

You are perhaps the last one
to carry on the blood-line of
the Knights...

It is ironic that the last one in
the line has the potential to
become the Hero of legend.

Surely you can destroy Ganon!
Ice Palace
Sahasrahla, in Ice Palace
Link, the magic flames will
protect you inside this icy
You cannot destroy the
Skeleton Knight with the sword
alone. When he collapses, he is

vulnerable to another weapon.
Link, do not use all your
magic power if you do not
possess the Medicine Of Magic.

Now, get ready to go into the
depths of this dungeon.
Maiden in Ice Palace
Link, because of you, I can
escape from the clutches of
the evil monsters. Thank you!

They say the Hylia people
controlled mysterious powers,
as did the seven wise men.

But the blood of the Hylia has
become thin over time. We who
carry the blood of the seven

wise men do not possess strong
power any more, either.

Our powers will increase if we
mix the courage of the Knights
with the wisdom of the wise

men. Only a short time remains
until the gate at the castle
linking the worlds opens

completely. If you defeat
Ganon, this world will vanish
and the Triforce will wait for

a new holder.
I believe in you...
Good luck!
Misery Mire
Beetle thing
Heh heh. Thank you. As a
matter of fact, monster magic
is making it rain in the swamp.

If you can move the air with
more force than the monsters,
the rain may stop.
Link, it is I, Sahasrahla
the elder! You must set fire
to four torches to open

the way forward.
Maiden in Misery Mire
Link, because of you, I can
escape from the clutches of
the evil monsters. Thank you!

Ganon captured us because he
couldn't break the seal of the
wise men with his power alone.

And then, using the wizard
Agahnim as his pawn, he drew us
to the Dark World.

After cracking the seal with
our powers, he sealed us inside
of these crystals.

He then gave us to his loyal
monsters. But Ganon didn't
plan on your getting this far.

Now, Princess Zelda is waiting
for you inside of Turtle Rock.
Please hurry!
Turtle Rock
Link, do you possess the
Medicine of Magic? If not, I
recommend against going any

Zelda, in Turtle Rock
I appreciate your coming so far
to rescue me. As I thought,
you are the legendary Hero.

I have felt this from the first
time we met.
... ... ...

Ganon is waiting inside of his
tower to pass through the
gate linking the two worlds.

Once Ganon enters the Light
World, it is unlikely that
anyone can stop him.

But if he stays in the closed
space of this world, you can
find him wherever he runs.

Now, go to the Tower Of
Ganon! We will use our
combined powers to break the

barrier. Let's return peace to
the country without fail...
... ... ...
Zelda, if you haven't rescued all the maidens yet
I appreciate your coming so far
to rescue me. As I thought,
you are the legendary Hero.

I have felt this from the first
time we met.
... ... ...

Ganon is waiting inside of his
tower to pass through the
gate linking the two worlds.

Once Ganon enters the Light
World, it is unlikely that
anyone can stop him.

But if he stays in the closed
space of this world, you can
find him wherever he runs.

Some maidens still need your
help, though. Once you rescue
them all, go to Ganon's Tower.

We who are of the blood-line of
the wise men will then use our
power to break

Ganon's barrier!
Link... You must return
peace to this country...
Ganon's Tower, Pyramid of Power
Fairy Queen in Pyramid of Power
You are an honest person.
I like you.
I will give you something

These are the Silver Arrows.
To give Ganon his last

moment, you definitely need
them! I know I don't quite have
the figure of a faerie.

Ganon's cruel power
is to blame!
You must defeat Ganon!
Link, we are going to break
the barrier of Ganon's Tower
with our power.
Ho ho ho! It's great that you
could come all the way here,

I'm very happy to see you
again, but
you'd better believe that we

will not have a third meeting!
Prepare to meet your doom!
Sahasrahla, in Pyramid of Power
When Ganon is stunned, give
him his last moment with a
Silver Arrow!

Do you understand, Link?
I never imagined a boy like you
could give me so much trouble.
It's unbelievable that you

defeated my alterego, Agahnim
the Dark Wizard, twice!

But I will never give you the
Triforce. I will destroy you
and make my wish to conquer

both Light and Dark Worlds
come true without delay.
You are doing well, lad. But
can you break through this
secret technique of Darkness?

En Garde!
Essence of the Triforce
Welcome, Link...
I am the Essence Of The

... ... ...

The Triforce will grant the
wishes in the heart and mind of
the person who touches it.

If a person with a good heart
touches it, it will make his good
wishes come true... If an evil-

hearted person touches it, it
grants his evil wishes.

The stronger the wish, the
more powerful the Triforce's
expression of that wish.

Ganon's wish was to conquer
the world. That wish changed
the Golden Land to the Dark


Ganon was building up his
power here so he could conquer
the Light World and make his

wish come completely true.

But now, you have totally
destroyed Ganon. His Dark
World will vanish.

The Triforce is waiting for a
new owner. Its Golden Power is
in your hands...

Now, touch it with a wish in
your heart.

my older brother's room? Is he
still angry?

Dwarven Swordsmiths
If my lost partner returns,
we can temper your sword,
but now, I can't do

anything for you.
Ribbit ribbit... Your body did
not change! You are not just
an ordinary guy, are you?

I used to live in Kakariko Town.
I wonder what my partner is
doing there without me...

Ribbit! I have a request of
Please take me to my partner!

Please! Ribbit! Please!
Oh! Happy days are here again!
You found my partner!
... We are very happy now...

Drop by here again!
At that time, we will temper
your sword perfectly!
Hey you!

Ask us to do anything!
Temper my sword
I just dropped by
I'll give you a big discount!
Sword Tempered... 10 Rupees
Wait a minute
Tempered, eh? Are you sure?
I changed my mind
All right, no problem.
We'll have to keep your sword
for a while.
I'm sorry, we're not done yet.
Come back after a while.
Your sword is tempered-up!
Now hold it!
Well, we can't make it any
stronger than that... Sorry!
Drop by again anytime you
want to. Hi ho! Hi ho!
We're off to work!
Flute Boy
...mumble mumble... My son
really liked to play the flute,
but he went to look for the

Golden Power and has not
returned... ... ...
I wonder where he is and what

he is doing now?...
... Zzzzzz Zzzzzz
Flute Boy
After wandering into this world
I turned into this shape.
... ... ...

I enjoyed playing the flute in
the original world...
... ... ...

There was a small grove where
many animals gathered. I want
to see that place again...

I buried my flute there with
some flower seeds.

Will you try to find it for me?
No way
Then I will lend you my shovel.
Good luck!
... ... ...
I see. I won't ask you again...
Good bye.
Did you find my flute?
... ... ...
Please keep looking for it...
Thank you, Link. But it
looks like I can't play my flute
any more. Please take it.

If by chance you go to the
village I lived in, please give
it to a tired old man you will

find there.
... ... ...
Well, my mind is getting

Please let me hear the sound of
the flute one last time...
Zzzzzzz Zzzzzzzz
... ... ...
Snore Zzzzzz Zzzzzz
...mumble mumble... Oh? This
is my son's flute...!
Did you meet my son?

Where is he? Is he all right?
... ... ... ...

Oh, I see... Well, I can tell
what you want to say by the
look in your eyes...
Would you keep the flute?
And will you play its sweet
melody for the bird in the

village square?
I beg of you, please!
My son would probably want it

this way...
...But still, I wish I could
see him once more...
Fortune Teller
Hmmm... You look like you might
have an interesting destiny...
May I tell your fortune?

I'll make it cheap...
Ask him to tell it
Not interested
Now I will take AB Rupees.
I hope you will be healthy.
Yeehah ha hah!
It is indeed a poor man who is
not interested in his future...
I'll be waiting for your return.

Wow! I haven't seen a normal
person in a few hundred years!
Let me talk to you for a while.
In Village of Outcasts
Do you know about the
Gargoyle statue in the village?
People say they can hear a girl

calling for help from under the
statue. Isn't that a strange
Location unknown
Surprisingly, the Triforce
created this world to fulfill
Ganon's wish.

What is Ganon's wish,
you ask? It is to rule the
entire cosmos! Don't you think

it might be possible with the
power of the Triforce
behind you?
By Haunted Grove
I once lived in the Lost Woods,
until the day I wandered into a
magic transporter...

The power of the Dark World
quickly turned me into this
tree shape...

I guess the two forests are
connected with each other...
Strange Middle-Aged Guy
Heh heh. Thank you. To tell
you the truth, I used to be a
thief in the Light World...

some of my fellow thieves went
into hiding because they were
afraid of being caught.

One of them was a master
locksmith, but now he is hiding
the fact that he was a thief...

...by pretending to be a
strange middle-aged guy!
Ha ha ha...
Hey kid, this is a secret hide-
out for a gang of thieves!
Don't enter without permission!

By the way, I heard that one
of our ex-members is staying
at the entrance to the Desert.
Pay no attention to the
average middle-aged man
standing by this sign.

Leave him alone!
... ... ... ... ... ...
... ... ...
Why did you take my sign? It
says plain as day to just leave
me alone! Sheeesh!
I heard that you know I used to
be a thief, right?

Well, I'll open a chest for you.
Will you keep it secret from
everyone else?

Would you please promise ?
Promise not to tell
Tell it to everyone
OK, if that's the way you want
it, I hope you drag that chest
around forever!
Remember, you promised...
Don't tell anyone.
All right, bring that chest over
here... Seriously, keep this a
secret from everyone.

get a Magic Decanter?

Hey! I'll tell you a profitable
story if you pay me 20 Rupees.

How about it?
Pay Rupees
Don't want to hear it
Heh heh. I see. I'm not
interested in talking to people
who don't have Rupees...
Hah! Thank you. They say
there is a tiny circle of rocks
in the lake at the source of

the river. I don't know what
will happen, but it might be fun
to throw something into it...

Heh heh. See you...
Hah! Thank you. To tell you
the truth, I found incredible
beauty inside the pyramid,

but someone sealed the door.
You can't do anything with a
standard bomb, they say...
Yo! Link! You seem to be in
a heap of trouble, but this is
all I can give you.
I can't tell you details, but

me now. Come back here again.
