                           1. Introduction
                  •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••


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 FAQs was born.


                  •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
                       2. How to use this FAQ
                  •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••


It's quite simple, really. First of all, if lines appear to scroll off
the right edge of your screen, it's because you aren't breaking lines.
Set your text viewer so that the lines break.

All quotes are written out exactly as they appear on the screen, ellipses
(...) and all. The name of the person talking and a short description of
the situation appear in all caps above each quote. A hard return after a
line of text indicates that the next line begins another screenful of
text within the game, or that the in-game text has a hard return.

Phrases that appear in parentheses () are not part of the quote. They are
either responses to a question asked of Link, which the user chooses; a
message from the game (such as description of a newly-obtained item);
a brief description of something that happened during the quote; or, a
description of the formatting of the text - (centered), for example.
Most gameplay instructions are ommitted because they have nothing to do
with the story.

To find a quote by a specific person, use your text viewer's Find
function (usually Edit-Find or Control-F). The quotes are listed in
chronological order (i.e. the logical flow of the game), so you can also
try to find a specific quote by scrolling through the whole FAQ or
going to a specific section.

NOTE: If you're not interested in the storyline of the Zelda games, this
FAQ isn't for you. You won't find any tips or hints about the gameplay
in this FAQ.

      to reflect the release of the Zelda 3 Quote FAQ.

 • Version 1.3 - Released 7/21/01
      Fixed the spacing of, and added more, quotes from before and
      during Link's first visit to Kakariko. Added almost all of the
      quotes suggested by Mizpah316, except for some of the Gerudo

      of the game up to Link's meeting with Zelda in Hyrule Castle.
      Added more quotes suggested by the two people indicated in the
      Credits, and added a credit that I neglected to put in last time
      (the Gossip Stone FAQ). Divided the quotes into chronological
      sections for easier reference. Also, fixed my misstyped url (gosh,
      do I feel stupid).

 • Version 1.1 - Released 5/4/01
      Added some more quotes from the beginning of the game, added quotes
      from the Lon Lon Ranch portion of the game, added a missing Gossip

      beginning of the game. Also added a Credits section (see below).

 • Version 1.0 - Released 4/18/01
      This first version of the FAQ is a bit incomplete, and inaccurate
      in places, but I figured it was about time I released the darn
      thing.

――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――

THE DEKU TREE:
(centered)
(black screen)
In the vast, deep forest of Hyrule...
Long have I served as the guardian spirit...
I am known as the Deku Tree...
(cut to Link's house)
The children of the forest, the Kokiri, live here with me.
Each Kokiri has his or her own guardian fairy.
However, there is one boy who does not have a fairy...
(Link moans in his sleep)
(cut to Link's nightmare)
(white screen)
Navi...
Navi, where art thou?
Come hither....
(end centered)
(cut to Deku Tree and Navi)
Oh, Navi the fairy...
Listen to my words, the words of the Deku Tree...
Dost thou sense it?
The climate of evil descending upon this realm...
Malevolent forces even now are mustering to attack our land of Hyrule...
For so long, the Kokiri Forest, the source of life, has stood as a barrier,
deterring outsiders and maintaining the order of the world...
But...before this tremendous evil power, even my power is as nothing...
It seems the time has come for the boy without a fairy to begin his journey...
The youth whose destiny it is to lead Hyrule to the path of justice and
truth...
Navi...go now! Find our young friend and guide him to me...
I do not have much time left. Fly, Navi, fly! The fate of the forest, nay, the
world, depends upon thee!

NAVI, WAKING LINK UP:
Hello, Link!
Wake up!
The Great Deku Tree wants to talk to you!
Link, get up!
(Link moans in his sleep)
(Navi flies around)
Hey! C'mon!
Can Hyrule's destiny really depend on such a lazy boy?
(Link sits up)
You finally woke up!
I'm Navi the fairy!
The Great Deku Tree asked me to be your partner from now on! Nice to meet you!
The Great Deku Tree has summoned you! So let's get going right now!

SARIA, WHEN LINK EXITS HIS HOUSE:
(centered)
Yahoo! Hi, Link!
(talk to her)
Wow! A fairy!!
Finally, a fairy came to you, Link!
Wow! That's great news! I'm so happy for you!
Now you're a true Kokiri, Link!
Is that right?
The Great Deku Tree has summoned you?
It's quite an honor to talk to the Great Deku Tree!
I'll wait for you here.
Get going! Go see the Great Deku Tree!

MIDO, KEEPING LINK FROM SEEING THE DEKU TREE:
Hey you! "Mr. No Fairy!" What's your business with the Great Deku Tree?
Without a fairy, you're not even a real man!
What?! You've got a fairy?! Say what?
The Great Deku Tree actually summoned you?
Whaaaaaaat?!
Why would he summon you and not the great Mido?
This isn't funny... I don't believe it! You aren't even fully equipped yet!
How do you think you're going to help the Great Deku Tree without both a sword
and shield ready?
What? You're right, I don't have my equipment ready, but...
If you want to pass through here, you should at least equip a sword and shield!
Sheesh!

SARIA, AFTER MIDO WON'T LET LINK SEE THE GREAT DEKU TREE:
(centered)
What?!
(end centered)
Mido won't let you go to see the Great Deku Tree?
Ohh...That bum! I don't know why he's always so mean to everyone!
What he said is true, though.
The forest...strange things have been happening lately...
You need to be ready for anything. You'd better find a weapon!
You can buy a shield at the shop, but there is only one sword hidden somewhere
in the forest.

BOY CUTTING SARIA'S GRASS:
That meanie, Mido, made me cut the grass at Saria's house.
Mido told Saria he would do it so she would like him, but I'm the one doing all
the work!
You and Saria are close friends, so will you help me cut the grass?
I'll let you keep anything that you find while cutting it.

GIRL ON PLATFORM:
You came all the way up here? You're a real man!
Look! Isn't this view pretty?

GIRL STANDING NEXT TO WATER:
Oh, you have a fairy now?! That's great, Link!
What?
You've been called by the Great Deku Tree? What an honor!
He may give you a special gift! Tee hee!
That's because the Great Deku Tree is our father, the forest guardian, and he
gave life to all us Kokiri!
(talk again)
I wonder if the Great Deku Tree gave life to everything in the forest, I mean
in addition to us Kokiri?

GIRL IN FOREST SHOP:
This shop...It sells things you can get in the forest for free! Tee hee!
Do you know how to use the Deku Shield? Tee hee!

GIRL IN HOUSE OF TWINS:
My sister took some Rupees and went shopping at the store that has a red roof.
Tee hee!

GUY IN FRONT OF MIDO'S HOUSE:
Mean old Mido...he made me pick up rocks in front of his house.

GIRL CLOSE TO EXIT:
Oh, a fairy finally came to you!
Now you have a lot to learn!
The best place to go to learn some new skills is the Forest Training Center.
It's on the hill just above here.

GUY GUARDING EXIT:
You're not allowed to leave the forest!
The Great Deku Tree said that if a Kokiri leaves the woods, he or she will die!

SIGN IN FRONT OF EXIT (centered)
Forest folk shall not
leave these woods.

GETTING KOKIRI SWORD:
This is a hidden treasure of the Kokiri, but you can borrow it for a while. Be
sure to practice with it before you really fight!

MIDO, LETTING LINK THROUGH TO THE GREAT DEKU TREE:
If you want...
Eh, what's that?!
Oh, you have a Deku Shield...
And what's THAT?!
Is that the Kokiri Sword?!
GOOD GRIEF!!
Well, even with all that stuff, a wimp is still a wimp, huh?
I, the great Mido, wil never accept you as one of us!
Shoot! How did you get to be the favorite of Saria and the Great Deku Tree?
Huh?! Grumble...grumble...

WHEN LINK ARRIVES AT THE GREAT DEKU TREE:
(Navi)
(centered)
Great Deku Tree...
I'm back!

(Great Deku Tree)
Oh... Navi...
Thou hast returned...
Link...
Welcome...
Listen carefully to what I, the Deku Tree, am about to tell thee...
Thy slumber these past moons must have been restless, and full of nightmares...
As the servants of evil gain strength, a vile climate pervades the land and
causes nightmares to those sensitive to it...
Verily, thou hast felt it...
Link...
The time has come to test thy courage...
I have been cursed...
I need you to break the curse with your wisdom and courage.
Dost thou have courage enough to undertake this task?

(No)
Perhaps you do not yet have confidence in your abilities...
Return to the Kokiri Forest to learn the skills of combat...
When thou art ready, return here and speak with me...

(Yes)
Then enter, brave
Link, and thou too,
Navi...
Navi the fairy...
Thou must aid Link...
And Link, when Navi speaks, listen well to her words of wisdom...

~ 5.2 After the Great Deku Tree Dies ~

――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――

THE GREAT DEKU TREE, AFTER LINK DEFEATS QUEEN GOHMA:
Well done, Link...
Thou hast verily demonstrated thy courage...
I knew that thou wouldst be able to carry out my wishes...
Now, I have yet more to tell ye, wouldst thou listen...
(No)
No, Link...
Thou must know my time is short...
(continue with his response to Yes)
Now... listen carefully...
A wicked man of the desert cast this dreadful curse upon me...
(cut to Ganondorf riding through fire)
This evil man ceaselessly uses his vile, sorcerous powers in his search for the
Sacred Realm that is connected to Hyrule...
For it is in that Sacred Realm that one will find the divine relic, the
Triforce, which contains the essence of the gods...
(cut to creation scene)
(centered)
Before time began, before spirits and life existed...
Three golden goddesses descended upon the chaos that was Hyrule...
Din, the goddess of power...
Nayru, the goddess of wisdom...
Farore, the goddess of courage...
Din...
With her strong flaming arms, she cultivated the land and created the red
earth.
Nayru...
Poured her wisdom onto the earth and gave the spirit of law to the world.
Farore...
With her rich soul, produced all life forms who would uphold the law.
The three great goddesses, their labors completed, departed for the heavens.
And golden sacred triangles remained at the point where the goddesses left the
world.
Since then, the sacred triangles have become the basis of our world's
providence.
And, the resting place of the triangles has become the Sacred Realm.
(end centered)
(end cut scene)
Thou must never allow the desert man in black armor to lay his hands on the
sacred Triforce...
Thou must never suffer that man, with his evil heart, to enter the Sacred Realm
of legend...
That evil man who cast the death curse upon me and sapped my power...
Because of that curse, my end is nigh...
Though your valiant efforts to break the curse were successful, I was doomed
before you started...
Yes, I will pass away soon...
But do not grieve for me...
I have been able to tell you of these important matters...
This is Hyrule's final hope...
Link...
Go now to Hyrule Castle...
There, thou will surely meet the Princess of Destiny...
Take this stone with you.
The stone that man wanted so much, that he cast the curse on me...
(receive Kokiri's Emerald, Spiritual Stone of the Forest)
The future depends on thee, Link...
Thou art courageous...
Navi the fairy...
Help Link to carry out my will...
I entreat ye... Navi...
Good...bye...

NAVI, AFTER GREAT DEKU TREE DIES:
Let's go to Hyrule Castle, Link!!
Good-bye...Great Deku Tree...

MIDO, AFTER GREAT DEKU TREE DIES:
Hey, Link! What did you do?! The Great Deku Tree...did he...die?
How could you do a thing like that?! It's all your fault!!

MIDO, IN HIS HOUSE:
Hey!!
What are you doing in my house?!

GIRL IN HOUSE OF TWINS:
Link, are you going to go away?

GUY CUTTING GRASS AND GUY PICKING UP ROCKS:
Mido is very upset!
Did something happen to him?

GIRL BY EXIT, GIRL BY WATER, GIRL ABOVE SHOP DOOR:
What? Where are you going?!
To the castle?
Where is the castle?

GIRL IN FOREST SHOP:
If you lose your shield, will you come back?

GIRL ON PLATFORM:
What did you do to the Great Deku Tree?

GUY GUARDING EXIT:
We Kokiri will die if we leave the forest!
You're not going to try to leave the forest, are you?!

SARIA, WHEN LINK IS LEAVING:
Oh, you're leaving...
I knew...
that you would leave the forest...
someday, Link...
Because you are different from me and my friends...
But that's OK, because we'll be friends forever...
won't we?
I want you to have this Ocarina...
Please take good care of it.
(receive Fairy Ocarina, a memento from Saria)
When you play my Ocarina, I hope you will think of me and come back to the
forest to visit.

~ 5.3 Link Exploring Hyrule ~

――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――

THE OWL, OUTSIDE KOKIRI FOREST:
Hoo hoot!
Link...
Look up here!
It appears that the time has finally come for you to start your adventure!
You will encounter many hardships ahead... That is your fate. Don't feel
discouraged, even during the toughest times!
Go straight this way and you will see Hyrule Castle.
You will meet a princess there...
If you are lost and don't know which way to go, look at the Map.
(gameplay instructions ommitted)
All right then, I'll see you around!
Hoot hoot hoot ho!

THE OWL, ON TREE BY ENTRANCE TO GERUDO VALLEY:
Link! Wait up, buddy!
Hoo hoo!
Head south from here to reach Lake Hylia's full, rich waters.
If you go west, you'll find Gerudo Valley. There's a hideout of a gang of
thieves on the other side of the valley.
Well, you're free to go anywhere you want!
Ho ho ho...hooo!
No matter how hard it is, just don't get discouraged. Ho Ho Hoo!

THE OWL, AT ENTRANCE TO LAKE HYLIA FROM FIELD:
Beyond this point lies Lake Hylia. It is full of deep, pure water.
The Zoras, who live all the way upstream, guard the sunken temple at the lake's
bottom, as well as Zora's Fountain.
OK, be careful and go!

THE OWL, ON LAKE HYLIA ISLAND:
What are you doing? You've come a long way to get up here...
Link, this is a beautiful lake full of pure, clear water.
At the lake bottom there is a Water Temple used to worship the water spirits.
The Zoras are guardians of the temple. Hoo hoo.
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... Hoo
hoo!
I'm on my way back to the castle. If you want to come with me, hold on to my
talons!

THE OWL, OUTSIDE KAKARIKO:
Hey, Link!
Wait a second, friend!
Beyond this point you'll find Kakariko Village. Have you seen the Princess of
Hyrule? If not, I suggest you go to the castle.
Link, you're the only one who can complete the quest ahead!
You must do your best! Hoo!

INGO, OUTSIDE DURING DAY, IN STABLE DURING NIGHT:
What?  What are you doing hanging around here?
You little weirdo!
I am Ingo and I mind the ranch.
I've been working at this ranch for a long time for that lazy bum, Talon.
Today, for example, he's gone somewhere for a delivery and he hasn't come back
yet!
So, I'm doing all the work around here.
Oh well...It's tough to be a working man.

~ 5.4 Hyrule Castle Town ~

――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――

SOLDIER BY HYRULE CASTLE TOWN ENTRANCE:
Welcome to Hyrule Castle Town.
It's a peaceful, prosperous town.

SOLIDER IN GUARDHOUSE BY ENTRANCE:
Man, I am SO bored...
Things would sure be more interesting if there were more...
troubles in the world...
Hey, that's just between you and me, OK?
Anyway, maybe we can let off some steam by breaking these jars.
(gameplay instructions ommitted)

RED SHIRT, WHITE TIGHTS:
Wha-ha-ha! What a crazy guy!
Can you believe that this guy was crazy enough to try to sneak into the castle
to see Princess Zelda?
All because of this idiot, they've tightened security at the castle.
Wha-ha-ha!

BLUE SHIRT, WHITE TIGHTS:
I wanted to see Princess Zelda!
I avoided the guards...
Swam through the moat...
I was almost there when they caught me!
I found a small drain hole on the right side of the castle that I thought I
could sneak into, but I got stuck there.

HYRULE CASTLE TOWN MARKET SHOPPERS:
Legends say that the Temple of Time is the entrance to the Sacred Realm...

Hey, have you heard that Princess Zelda sees prophetic visions in her dreams?

OLD WOMAN:
I made a lot of money!
Maybe I should go look for more things to sell!
I know! I should go to Lake Hylia! Many things float down the river and end up
there!
Hah hah!

BLACK VEST, GREEN TIGHTS:
Hey, forest boy! This is the city of Hyrule! Take your time and enjoy the
sights!
If you came here to see Hyrule Castle, take the street on your right
If you want to see the back alleys of the town, take the street to the left.

PERSON IN FRONT OF POTION SHOP:
Kid, have you been to Lon Lon Ranch?
Their milk is delicious!
There are many horses there, and the young daughter of the ranch owner is cute!
To get to Lon Lon Ranch, after you leave town, head due south across the field.
You should visit the ranch at least once!

DANCING LOVERS:
Ohh...
You are...so handsome...
Just like the King of Hyrule...
Hee hee...
(talk again)
Ohh...
You are...
more beautiful...
than Princess Zelda...
Ohh...

WHITE SHIRT, GREEN TIGHTS, BLACK BEARD:
(centered)
Ahem! Hrrrm!
(end centered)
This beard is my pride and joy! Doesn't it look luxuriant, kid?!

LADY IN LAVENDER DRESS:
Do you know about the Temple of Time that we have in the northeast part of
town?
Legends say that the Temple of Time is the entrance to the Sacred Realm...
Did you know that?

OLD MAN IN BLUE:
Have you heard the legend of the "Shadow Folk"?
They are the Sheikah...the shadows of the Hylians. They say they swore
allegiance to the King of Hyrule and guarded the Royal Family.
But with the long peace, no on has seen a Sheikah around here for a long time.
However...
I heard there is one Sheikah woman living in the castle...

MAN ON LEDGE:
They say we Hylians have big ears in order to hear the voices of the gods...but
I've never heard them!

MALON:
Hey, your clothes! They're...
different...
You're not from around here, are you?
.................
Ohh... You're a fairy boy from the forest! My name is Malon! My dad owns Lon
Lon Ranch!
Dad went to the castle to deliver some milk, and he hasn't come back yet...

OLD MAN IN BACK ALLEY:
Hey, sonny, I'll tell you something helpful...
I heard there is a mysterious fountain somewhere near the castle...

OWL, OUTSIDE CASTLE:
Hey, Link! This way!
The princess is inside the castle just ahead. Be careful not to get caught by
the guards!
Ho ho ho hoot!
(gameplay instructions ommitted)
Well, well, which way are you going to go now?
Hoo hoo hoot!
Hoooo. You're a smart kid.
Good luck, then. Hoo hoo.

SOLDIER GUARDING GATE TO HYRULE CASTLE:
So you say you want to see Princess Zelda, eh?
You probably heard about her in town and decided you had to meet her... Well...
Go home! Get out of here!
The Princess would never grant an audience to the likes of you!

MALON, OUTSIDE CASTLE GATE:
Are you going to the castle, fairy boy?
Would you mind finding my dad?
He must have fallen asleep somewhere around the castle. What a thing for an
adult to do! Tee hee!
Oh yeah, if you'll look for him, I'll give this to you.
I've been incubating this egg very carefully...
Tee hee!
(get Weird Egg)

TALON, ASLEEP:
Z Z Z Z Z....
Mumble mumble...
Welcome...Our ranch is so fun...
C'mon and look around...

TALON, WOKEN UP:
(centered)
What in tarnation?
(end centered)
Can't a person get a little shut-
eye around here?
(talk to him)
Hello, and who might you be?
Yep, I'm Talon, the owner of Lon Lon Ranch.
I went to the castle to deliver some milk, but I sat down here to rest, and I
guess I fell asleep...
(centered)
What?!
(end centered)
Malon was looking for me?
I'm gonna catch it from her now!
I messed up bad, leaving Malon behind to wait for me!
She's really gonna let me have it!

PRINCESS ZELDA, WHEN LINK MEETS HER IN HYRULE CASTLE:
(centered)
!
Who?!
Who are you?
(end centered)
How did you get past the guards?
Oh? What's that?
Is that...
a fairy?!
Then, are you...
Are you from the forest?
Then...then...you wouldn't happen to have... the Spiritual Stone of the Forest,
would you?! That green and shining stone...
Do you have it?

(Yes)
(line centered) Just as I thought!

(No)
Well, that's odd...
I thought you might be the one from my dream...
You really don't have it?
Tell me the truth...
(asks again)

I had a dream... In the dream, dark storm clouds were billowing over the land
of Hyrule...
But suddenly, a ray of light shot out of the forest, parted the clouds and lit
up the ground...
The light turned into a figure holding a green and shining stone, followed by a
fairy...
I know this is a prophecy that someone would come from the forest...
Yes, I thought you might be the one...
Oh, I'm sorry!
I got carried away with my story and didn't even properly introduce myself!
(line centered) I am Zelda, Princess of Hyrule.
What is your name?
.....
Link...
Strange...it sounds somehow...
familiar.
OK then, Link...
I'm going to tell you the secret of the Sacred Realm that has been passed down
by the Royal Family of Hyrule.
Please keep this a secret from everyone...

(No)
C'mon...don't be a blabber-mouth!
(asks again)

(OK)
The legend goes like this...

(cut scene of three goddesses and Triforce)
(centered)
The three goddesses hid the
Triforce containing the power of
the gods somewhere in Hyrule.

The power
to grant the wish of the one who
holds the Triforce in his hands.

If someone with a righteous heart
makes a wish, it will lead Hyrule
to a golden age of prosperity...

If someone with an evil mind has
his wish granted, the world will
be consumed by evil...That is what
has been told...

So, the ancient Sages built
the Temple of Time to protect the
Triforce from evil ones.
(end centered)
(end cut scene)

That's right... The Temple of Time is the entrance through which you can enter
the Sacred Realm from our world.
But the entrance is sealed with a stone wall called the
Door of Time.
And, in order to open the door, it is said that you need to collect three
Spiritual Stones.
And another thing you need...is the treasure that the Royal Family keeps along
with this legend...
(line centered) The Ocarina of Time!
Did you understand well the story I just told you?

(No)
Oh, I'm sorry.
I'm not very good at storytelling...
(retells from after cut scene)

(Yes)
That's great!
I forgot to tell you...
I was spying through this window just now...
The other element from my dream...the dark clouds...
I believe they symbolize...
that man in there!
Will you look through the window at him?

(No)
Please! If you don't hurry,
he'll be gone!
(look anyway)

(Yes)
Can you see the man with the evil eyes?
That is Ganondorf, the leader of the Gerudos. They hail from the desert far to
the west.
Though he swears allegiance to my father, I am sure he is not sincere.
The dark clouds that covered Hyrule in my dream...
They must symbolize that man!
(Ganondorf glances over)
What happened? Did he see you?
Don't worry.
He doesn't have any idea what we're planning...yet!
........Yes.
I told my father about my dream...
However, he didn't believe it was a prophecy...
But...I can sense that man's evil intentions!
What Ganondorf is after must be nothing less than the Triforce of the Sacred
Realm.
He must have come to Hyrule to obtain it!
And, he wants to conquer Hyrule...
no, the entire world!
Link...now, we are the only ones who can protect Hyrule!
Please!

(I don't believe you)
Please believe me....
My prophecies have never been wrong!
(repeats question)

(OK)
(line centered) Thank you!

I...I am afraid...
I have a feeling that man is going to destroy Hyrule.
He has such terrifying power!
But it's fortunate that you have come...
We must not let Ganondorf get the Triforce!
I will protect the Ocarina of Time with all my power!
He shall not have it!
You go find the other two Spiritual Stones!
Let's get the Triforce before Ganondorf does, and then defeat him!
One more thing...
Take this letter...
I'm sure it will be helpful to you.
(You received Zelda's Letter!
Wow! This letter has Princess Zelda's autograph!)
(talk to her again)
My attendant will guide you out of the castle. Don't be afraid to talk to her.

IMPA, THE FIRST TIME LINK MEETS HER:
I am Impa of the Sheikahs.
I am responsible for protecting Princess Zelda. Everything is exactly as the
Princess foretold.
You are a courageous boy...
You are heading out on a big, new adventure, aren't you?
My role in the Princess's dream was to teach a melody to the one from the
forest.
This is an ancient melody passed down by the Royal Family.
I have played this song for Princess Zelda as a lullaby ever since she was a
baby...
There is mysterious power in these notes.
Now listen carefully...
(whistles through her hands)
Memorize this song...
(You've learned Zelda's Lullaby!)
If the castle soldiers find you, there will be trouble. Let me lead you out of
the castle.
(outside Hyrule Castle Town)
You brave lad...
We must protect this beautiful land of Hyrule!
Take a good look at that mountain. That is Death Mountain, home of the Gorons.
They hold the Spiritual Stone of Fire.
At the foot of Death Mountain you will find my village, Kakariko. That is where
I was born and raised.
You should talk to some of the villagers there before you go up Death Mountain.
The song I just taught you has some mysterious power. Only Royal Family members
are allowed to learn this song.
Remember, it will help to prove your connection with the Royal Family.
The Princess is waiting for you to return to the castle with the stones. All
right. We're counting on you!
(she disappears)

MALON, LON LON RANCH DURING DAY:
Oh, it's the fairy boy again!
I heard that you found my dad! How did you like the castle? Did you see the
Princess? Hee hee!
Dad came home in a hurry after you found him. Hee hee!
Oh, yeah, I have to introduce you to my friend, fairy boy!
She's this horse. Her name is Epona. Isn't she cute?
(Epona runs off, talk to her again)
It seems like Epona is afraid of you, fairy boy...
(talk to her again)
My mother composed this song. Isn't it nice? Let's sing together.
(get out the Ocarina)
Oh, cute ocarina!
Are you going to play this song with that ocarina?
OK? This is the Song...
(learn Epona's Song, owl flies overhead)
(Epona walks over to you, talk to her again)
Oh, Epona! She's grown fond of you, fairy boy.

INGO, IN STABLE:
I can't believe that I, the great Ingo, am working on this dump of a ranch!
Because the owner is so lazy, I always have to do all the work around here!
I, the hard-working Ingo, should be in charge, not that lazy bum, Talon!

NAVI:
What would Saria say if we told her we're going to save Hyrule?

GUY GUARDING KOKIRI FOREST ENTRANCE:
Oh, you're OK? You didn't leave the forest after all, did you?

GIRL NEAR ENTRANCE:
Saria wanted to see you...
Did she find you already?

GIRL ON PLATFORM:
If you want to go to the Lost Woods, you'd better equip the right gear!
Hee hee!

GIRL NEAR WATER:
Saria said she's waiting at the usual spot.

GIRL ABOVE SHOP DOOR:
Mido might know something about Saria's whereabouts.
I think Mido is sulking in one of the houses around here.

MIDO:
If you're looking for Saria, she's in the Lost Woods, as usual.
Don't tell me you don't know where that is! The entrance is up on the cliff
overlooking the village!
I know you'll get lost! Don't worry, you'll just end up back at the entrance!
(centered)Harumph!

OWL, IN LOST WOODS BEFORE LINK MEETS SARIA:
Hey, over here!
Hoo hoo!
Link...Good to see you again! Listen to this!
Hoot hoot....
After going through the Lost Woods, you will come upon the Sacred Forest
Meadow.
That is a sacred place where few people have ever walked.
Shhhh...What's that?
I can hear a mysterious tune...
You should listen for that tune too...
Hoo hoo hoo!
If you are courageous, you will make it through the forest just fine...
Just follow your ears and listen to the sounds coming from the forest!
Hoot hoot!

SARIA, MEETING LINK IN SACRED FOREST MEADOW:
I've been waiting for you, Link!
This is the Sacred Forest Meadow.
It's my secret place!
I feel...
This place will be very important for both of us someday.
That's what I feel.
If you play the Ocarina here, you can talk with the spirits in the forest.
Would you like to play the Ocarina with me?

(Don't do it)
Huh?!
How boring!
C'mon! Play along!
(continues as though he said yes)

(Yes)
OK, try to follow along with the melody I will play.
Are you ready?
(play Saria's Song)
Great! Great!
Please don't forget this song!
Do you promise?
When you want to hear my voice, play Saria's Song. You can talk with me
anytime...

OWL, AFTER LINK MEETS SARIA:
Did you learn an Ocarina song from Saria?
That melody seems to have some mysterious power.
There may be some other mysterious songs like this that you can learn in
Hyrule.

~ 5.6 Kakariko Village and Death Mountain ~

――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――

KAKARIKO CLOCK SOLDER (SOLDIER BY ENTRANCE):
(day)
(tells time)
Hello there, son.
Zelda's attendant, the great Impa, opened this village to the common people.
We have only a small population now, but someday this place will be as lively
as Hyrule Castle Town! Oh, yes! It will! Climb up the stairs at the north end
of the village to find the trail that leads up Death Mountain. But you need the
King's permission to actually go up the mountain.

(night)
Hey, son, what are you doing wandering around this late at night?
Oh, I get it. You're testing your courage, aren't you? You must want to go
to...a graveyard!
Wait a minute! What am I doing talking to a kid? I've got work to do! Work!
Work!
(tells time)
Head east and you'll find a graveyard. Legends say you can calm the souls of
the dead with an old song of the Royal Family.

WOMAN IN FIRST HOUSE:
Hi, boy! Is this the first time you've visited this village?
A great woman, Impa, opened this village to us poor folk.
Well, make yourself at home. The food isn't ready yet, though.

CARPENTERS' BOSS:
(day)
I am the boss of the carpenters that Impa hired to improve this village and
make it into a true city!
But young men these days don't have any ambition...
Do you know what I mean, kid?
My workers are just running aimlessly around the village, and they're not
making any progress at all...
Even my own son doesn't have a job, and he just wanders around all day!
They're all worthless, I tell you!!

(night)
Those guys each do the work of half a man, but they still want a full man's
portion!
They're lazy slackers, I tell you!

SOLDIER BY IMPA'S OLD HOUSE:
This used to be the great Impa's house, but she doesn't live here any longer.
It is now open to all villagers. You are free to go on in.
This village used to be a Shiekah [sic] village, but the great Impa opened it
to everyone.

GUY IN IMPA'S OLD HOUSE:
(day)
Hey! Kid, do you always enter other people's houses without permission? Didn't
your parents teach you any manners?
(line centered) Oh well.
Did you see a lady behind this house? She's going through hard times.
(line centered) Oh well.
If that lady asks you about chickens, you should listen to her.

(night)
Is visiting other people's houses at this late hour your idea of fun? You must
not have had a good upbringing.
(line centered) Oh well.
That lady takes care of chickens, but she is, in fact, allergic to them.
(line centered) Oh well.

CARPENTER, IN EMPTY SHOP:
(day)
A job where you can make a lot of money without much effort...
The only thing I can think of is thievery... Is that a bad idea?

(night)
I heard that our boss's house is just behind this house. He doesn't want any of
us to know, though.

WINDMILL MAN:
Go around! Go around and around and around! What fun! I'm so happy!
I'm a music man who loves to go around and around! Go around and around!!!
I'm trying to come up with a musical theme inspired by this windmill...going
around and around and around!!!

SOLDIER GUARDING GATE TO DEATH MOUNTAIN TRAIL:
(talk to him)
The road is closed beyond this point!
Can't you read the sign over there?
Eh? Oh, I see. You're just a kid, and you can't read yet.
Ha ha hah!

(show him Zelda's Letter)
Oh, this is...
This is surely Princess Zelda's handwriting! Well, let's see...
Hmmm... OK...
"This is Link...
He is under my orders to save Hyrule."
Wah ha ha ha hah!
What kind of funny game has our Princess come up with now?!
OK, OK, all right. You can go now... Just be careful, Mr. Hero!
Wah hah ha ha hah!
(opens gate)
By the way, Mr. Hero...
If you're going to climb Death Mountain, you should equip a proper shield! It
is an active volcano, after all!
If you go back to Hyrule Castle Town Market, you should check out the Bazaar.
They sell the shield you need there.
Tell 'em I sent you and they should give you a special discount!
If you think you're good to go already, don't worry about it.
Now, I'd like to ask a favor of you. No, I don't expect you to do it just
because of the great tip I just gave you! I'm just asking! Have you been to the
Happy Mask Shop that just opened in the Hyrule Castle Town Market? Everyone is
talking about it! My little boy pesters me for a popular mask, but I don't have
time to go there...
So, could you go and get the mask for me next time you are in the Market? If
you don't feel like it, that's OK, but...
Well, I have no choice, this is my job...
       ...sigh...

(talk to him while wearing the Keaton Mask)
Wha-ha-ha-hah! Do you think you're in disguise, Mr. Hero?
                  Oh?
Is that a "Kee...something..." character mask? I heard he's very popular
recently?
He's my boy's favorite. That "Kee...something..." mask...
If you don't mind...
Will you sell it to me? (yes)
My boy will be very happy with this! You really are Mr. Hero!
Wha ha ha hah!

GORON IN FRONT OF DODONGO'S CAVERN:
I am one of the Gorons, the stone-eating people who live on Death Mountain.
Look at that huge boulder over there!
It blocks the entrance to the Dodongo's Cavern, which was once a very important
place for us Gorons...
But one day, many Dodongos suddenly appeared inside the cavern. It became a
very dangerous place!
On top of that, a Gerudo in black armor used his magic to seal the entrance
with that boulder!
If you want to hear more Goron gossip, head up to our city!
Goron City is just a little way up the trail. It won't take much longer to get
there, even on foot.

GORON ON DEATH MOUNTAIN TRAIL:
They say a beautiful fairy lives on top of Death Mountain!
Don't you want to see her?

GORON ROLLING DOWN DEATH MOUNTAIN TRAIL, AFTER STOPPING:
I wish I could roll down the mountain like a rock, with a Bomb Flower and...
BOOOOOOM!
If I could do that with a Bomb Flower, I could become a real man.

SIGN NEXT TO BOMB FLOWER:
(centered)
Natural Wonder
Bomb Flower
Danger! Do not uproot!

GORON NEXT TO BOMB FLOWER:
I'm standing here to shade the Bomb Flowers from the sun.
Do you have a question for me?

(Ask about Bomb Flowers)
Those plants growing over there are Bomb Flowers. They are "mining plants" that
grow only on this mountain.
They usually grow only in dark places, like caves, so Bomb Flowers that grow in
a place like this are extremely rare.
If you have the Goron's Bracelet, even a little kid like you could easily pick
it.

(Ask about Dodongo's Cavern)
Did you see the cavern on your way here? That is the Dodongo's Cavern. Because
the light inside is very dim, the Bomb Flowers, a plant unique to this
mountain, grow like crazy in there!

FIRST GORON IN G0RON CITY:
Oh...I'm so hungry...
Everyone feels faint from hunger because of the food shortage in this town. We
are in danger of extinction!
It's all because we can't enter our quarry, the Dodongo's Cavern.
We Gorons live on a diet of rocks...
And the most delicious and nutritious rocks around are found in the Dodongo's
Cavern! But that seems like ancient history now...
We've become such gourmets that we can't stand to eat rocks from anywhere else!
Sigh... I want to eat the top sirloin rocks from the Dodongo's Cavern!

GORON BY SPIRITUAL STONE DISPLAY:
Hey!
It's dangerous for a little kid like you to come out here. You might fall down!
If I'm not mistaken, you came out here to eat the red stone! Well, too bad!
It's not here!
What? That's not why you're here?
You're looking for a "Spiritual Stone?" You must mean that delicious-looking
stone that was once displayed here!
I was so hungry that I thought it would be OK to just give it one tiny little
lick...so I snuck out here. But, it was already gone!
I think Big Brother took it away.
He always says that everyone is after that red stone!
Big Brother has shut himself up in his room saying,
"I will wait in here for the Royal Family's messenger!"

GORON BY LOST WOODS WARP PORTAL:
I'm so hungry that I can't think about anything but food!
"Spiritual Stone?"
That red stone that was lighting up our city?
Big Brother Darunia took it away. Then, he shut himself up in his room and
won't come out.
Since then, it feels like all the lights in the city have gone out... Everyone
seems so...
depressed...
I want you to bring fire from Big Brother's room back here.

GORON BY STAIRS:
Oh?
We don't get many visitors way up here. Where are you from?
The forest?
What's a "forest"?
Eh?
It's where a lot of "trees" and "plants" grow?
Now I'm even more confused! Nothing grows around here besides the Bomb
Flowers...
We don't have "seeds" or "nuts" around here either.
Even Deku Sticks are very scarce around here!
I know a trick to conserve sticks! If you light a stick on fire, it will burn
to ashes. Put it away before it completely burns!
By the way, I hid a stick somewhere...
Hehehee...

DARUNIA, WHEN LINK FIRST MEETS HIM:
What the heck? Who are you?!
When I heard the song of the Royal Family, I expected their messenger had
arrived, but... you're just a little kid!
Has Darunia, the big boss of the Gorons, really lost so much status to be
treated like this by his Sworn Brother, the King?
Now, I'm REALLY angry!
Get out of my face, now!
Are you asking why I'm in such a bad mood right now?
Ancient creatures have infested the Dodongo's Cavern!
We've had a poor harvest of our special crop, Bomb Flowers!
Starvation and hunger because of the rock shortage!
(centered)
But...
This is a Goron problem!
We don't need any help from
strangers!

GORON BY LOST WOODS WARP PORTAL, AFTER LINK BRINGS FIRE TO HIM:
How was Big Brother?
I see...
By the way, do you know the music coming from deep inside of this tunnel? We
all like this music!

DARUNIA, AFTER DANCING TO SARIA'S SONG:
Heeey!! What a nice tune!
Just like that, my depression is all gone! Something just came over me! I
suddenly wanted to dance like crazy!
(line centered) I am Darunia!
I'm the big boss of the Gorons! Was there something you wanted to ask me about?
(line centered) What?
You want the Spiritual Stone of Fire, too?
The Spiritual Stone of Fire, also known as the Goron's Ruby, is our race's
hidden treasure...
But hold on--I'm not going to give it to you that easily.
If you want it so badly...
Why don't you go destroy the monsters inside of the Dodongo's Cavern and prove
you're a real man?
That way, everybody will be happy again! If you do it, I will give you anything
you want, even the Spiritual Stone!
I have something for you. I'm not really giving you this in return for
anything, but take it anyway.
If you wear this, even a little fella like you can pick up a Bomb Flower.
(get Goron's Bracelet)
Destroy the monsters in the Dodongo's Cavern and become a real man! Then, we
can talk about the Spiritual Stone!

INSCRIPTION IN DODONGO'S CAVERN:
Giant dead Dodongo...
when it sees red,
a new way to go
will be open.

~ 5.7 After Beating Dodongo's Cavern ~

――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――

DARUNIA, AFTER LINK BEATS KING DODONGO:
It's me, Darunia!
Well done!
Thanks to you, we can once again eat the delicious rocks from the Dodongo's
Cavern until our stomachs burst!
What a wild adventure! It will make an incredible story...
I can't believe that the Dodongos suddenly appeared in such great numbers!
And that big rock blocking the cave...
All this trouble must have been caused by that Gerudo thief, Ganondorf!
He said,
"Give me the Spiritual Stone! Only then will I open the cave for you!"
You, on the other hand, risked your life for us...
Kid, I like you!
How's about you and I become Sworn Brothers?!
No, there's no big ceremony involved! Just take this as a token of our
friendship!
(obtain Goron's Ruby)
Brother! You'll keep brushing up on your skills as you travel, won't you?
You should go see the Great Fairy on top of Death Mountain! She will power you
up!
Hey, everybody! Let's see off our Brother!

OWL, ON TOP OF DEATH MOUNTAIN:
You've done well to come all the way up here, Link.
This is the summit of the sacred Death Mountain! Hoot!
It is said that the clouds surrounding this peak reflect the condition of Death
Mountain. When they look normal, it is at peace.
Climbing all the way up here just proves how smart you are! Now I want to see
you make another smart move...
The Great Fairy lives on this mountaintop, and she will give you a new skill!
She is the leader of the fairies, you know. Hoo!
I will perch here and wait for you. When you're ready to go back down, I can
help you!

Now, get going!

GREAT FAIRY OF POWER (ON DEATH MOUNTAIN):
Welcome Link!
I am the Great Fairy of Power!
I'm going to grant you a sword technique.
Receive it now!
(You mastered the secret technique of the Spin Attack!
Hold B to charge your weapon! Release B to unleash a wave of energy with your
spin!
If you want to release energy without charging your weapon, just rotate + once
and press B for a very effective quick spin!)
When you charge power for a Spin Attack, magic power will be consumed. Pay
attention to your green Magic Meter!
Hey, boy! You're a messenger of the Royal Family, aren't you?
Next time you're in their neighborhood, you should drop in on a friend of mine
who lives by Hyrule Castle.
She'll surely grant you another new power!
(every Great Fairy says the last line)
When battle has made you weary, please come back to see me.

SARIA, AFTER BEATING DODONGO'S CAVERN:
Are you collecting Spiritual Stones? You have one more to find?
You mean the Spiritual Stone of Water, don't you?
The Great Deku Tree once told me that King Zora, ruler of Zora's Domain, has
it...

――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――

INSCRIPTION ON FIRST LARGE TOMBSTONE:
(centered)
R.I.P.
Here lies the souls of those who
swore fealty to the
Royal Family of Hyrule.
The Sheikah, guardians of the
Royal Family and founders of
Kakariko, watch over these spirits
in their eternal slumber.

SHARP THE ELDER'S GHOST:
GYAAAAH!
YOU KILLED ME...Unbelievable!
Oh, what?
You're not one of Ganondorf's men, are you?
Because of my role as a ghost, I had to act like that. I apologize.
Now then, let me introduce myself. Ahem...
I am one of the ghostly composer brothers of Kakariko Village.
All the people in this village are born to serve the Royal Family of Hyrule.
We brothers also served the Royal Family, and we were assigned to study the
hereditary mystic powers of the family.
Though we never could figure out the power of the Triforce,
we had almost completed our study of controlling time with the tones of
ocarinas.
Uh, I mean...
Actually, we did complete that study!
We would have been famous, if that hateful Ganondorf had not tried to steal our
results.
We could never let him reap the fruits of our research!
That's why we gave our lives to protect the secret.

SHARP THE YOUNGER'S GHOST:
GYAAAAH!
I'M DEAD AGAIN!
What? You again?
Somehow, you remind me of...
Princess Zelda...
Hmm... Since you may have some connection with the Royal Family, I will tell
you a little more of our tale.
Back then, people called us great composers because of the many musical
masterpieces we wrote.
But we brothers were not just composers.
We had a mission to analyze the mysterious powers of Hyrule's Royal Family.
Our names would be part of Hyrule's history if we could complete our research!
We kept our study extremely secret until we completed it.
To tell the truth, each of us was studying a different song, one to summon the
sun and another to summon the moon.
If you were really sent by a member of the Royal Family, I will tell you about
the results of our study.
We inscribed it on the royal tombstone.
As a messenger of the Royal Family, you should show your Royal credentials on
top of the Triforce mark...

INSIDE ROYAL FAMILY'S TOMB:
(centered)
This poem is dedicated to
the memory of the dearly departed
members of the Royal Family.

The rising sun will eventually set,
A newborn's life will fade.
From sun to moon, moon to sun...
Give peaceful rest to
the living dead

This is an interesting poem...
huh?
Something is inscribed on the tombstone...
It's the secret melody of the Composer Brothers!
(learn Sun's Song)
Restless souls wander
where they don't belong,
bring them calm with
the Sun's Song.

~ 5.9 Zora's Domain ~

――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――

OWL, BY ZORA'S RIVER:
Hoo hoo! Looks like you've gotten bigger and stronger already, Link!
Just ahead lies Zora's Domain. The Zoras serve Hyrule's Royal Family by
protecting this water source.
Their door will not open for anyone except those who have some connection with
the Royal Family.
Let them hear the melody of the Royal Family!
Hooo hoo hoooot!

INSCRIPTION IN FRONT OF SLEEPLESS WATERFALL:
(centered)
Sleepless Waterfall
The flow of this waterfall serves
the King of Hyrule. When the King
slumbers, so too do these falls.

ZORA STANDING OUTSIDE SHOP:
Who are you?
We are the Zoras, the proud aquatic people!
So...you say you have some connection with Hyrule's Royal Family...
Well, what do you want from us?
(talk again)
Zora's Fountain is the source of the river.
Lord Jabu-Jabu lives in the fountain.
Lord Jabu-Jabu is the patron deity of the Zoras. Princess Ruto is in charge of
preparing his meals, morning and night.

ZORA IN WATER:
We Zoras all serve the great King Zora.

ZORA BY LAKE HYLIA WARP:
Have you seen Lord Jabu-Jabu?
(Yes)
According to the "Legend of Zora," the act of offering a fish to Lord Jabu-Jabu
will make you happy.
(No)
Oh, that's not good.
Everybody who comes around here should see Lord Jabu-Jabu at least once!
Zora's Fountain is just beyond King Zora's throne. That is where Lord Jabu-Jabu
swims. But...
unless you have King Zora's permission, you can't go to Zora's Fountain.

ZORA IN WATER, BETWEEN LADDER AND ISLAND:
All of the water in Hyrule flows from Zora's Fountain.
That water flows through Zora's River, which eventually reaches Lake Hylia to
the south.

ZORA ON ISLAND:
We are good at diving!
How about you?
If you want to be a master diver, try the diving game at the top of the
waterfall!
Have you tried it already?

ZORA IN WATER, ON OTHER SIDE OF ISLAND:
We haven't found Princess Ruto even though some of us have searched as far as
Lake Hylia...

INSCRIPTION ON SIGN IN KING ZORA'S THRONE ROOM:
King Zora's Throne Room
To hear the King's royal
proclamations, stand on the
platform and speak to him.

KING ZORA'S FIRST CONVERSATION WITH LINK:
Oh, my dear, sweet Princess Ruto...
Where has she gone?
I'm so worried...

ZORA IN LAKE HYLIA:
I am a Zora. Have you seen anything strange in the lake? The river carries many
things into this lake!

KING ZORA, WHEN LINK SHOWS HIM THE LETTER IN A BOTTLE:
Ho, this letter!
It's from Princess Ruto!!
Hmmm...Let's see...
She's inside Lord Jabu-Jabu?
That's not possible!
Our guardian god, Lord Jabu-Jabu, would never eat my dear Princess Ruto!
But since that stranger, Ganondorf, came here, Lord Jabu-Jabu has been a little
green around the gills...
The evidence seems clear.
Of course, you'll go find Ruto.
You can pass through here to the altar of Lord Jabu-Jabu.
I'll keep this letter. You keep the bottle it was in. Take it respectfully!
Please find my dear Princess Ruto immediately... Zora!

INSCRIPTION ON SIGN IN FRONT OF LORD JABU-JABU (centered):
Zora's Fountain
Don't disturb Lord Jabu-Jabu!
--King Zora XVI

GREAT FAIRY OF MAGIC (BY ZORA'S FOUNTAIN):
Welcome Link!
I am the Great Fairy of Magic!
I will give you a magic spell.
Please take it.
(You got Farore's Wind!
This is warp magic that you can use with C. Warp when you are in danger!
You will teleport to the Warp Point. When you first use the magic, you will
create a Warp Point.
When you use the magic again, you can either dispel the Warp Point you created
last time or warp to that point.)
Remember, you can use Farore's Wind only in dungeons that have a dungeon map
hidden inside, OK?

――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――

PRINCESS RUTO, WHEN LINK FINDS HER:
You? Who are you?!
I am Ruto, Princess of the Zoras.
What?!
Are you saying my father asked you to come her to save me?
I'd never ask anyone to do such a thing!
"Letter in a Bottle?" I have no idea what you're talking about!
My father is worried about me?
I don't care!
Anyway, I can't go home right now.
And you... Get out of here!
Understand?! (walks away, falls into hole)
(line centered) Ooooh Noooooo!
(talk again)
Are you still hanging around here?
I told you to go away!
I'm OK. I've been going inside Lord Jabu-Jabu's belly since I was little,
but...
Lord Jabu-Jabu is very strange today...
There are electrified jellyfish and strange holes around...
On top of that, my precious stone was...but...
That's none of your business!
Anyway...
You! Go home now!
Understand?!
(talk again)
You're that worried about me?
Then I will give you the honor of carrying me!
However...I won't leave until I find the thing I'm looking for. You'd better
believe me!

RUTO, FINDING THE SPIRITUAL STONE OF WATER:
That's it!
That's what I've been looking for!
Throw me up there!
Onto the platform!
(Princess Ruto got the Spiritual Stone!
But why Princess Ruto?)
Oh my goodness!
I finally found...
My mother's stone...
I got very upset when Lord Jabu-Jabu swallowed it...
While I was feeding him, he suddenly swallowed me! I was so surprised I dropped
it inside...
But, now that I've found it, I don't need to be in here anymore!
So, take me home, right now!
(platform rises, Ruto screams)
(centered)
[Keeeyah!
What is this?! An octopus?]

RUTO, SAVED FROM BARINADE:
(inside warp light)
You...You're late!
What took you so long?
You're useless!
I was just lonely, that's all...
Just a little!!
(warp outside, Link falls in water, Ruto jumps in too)
You!
You looked cool...cooler than I thought you would, anyway...
Just a little!
Well, anyway, you saved me, so I guess I'll reward you.
What do you wish? Just tell me...

(Nothing really...)
Heeheehee... Don't be shy.
I can tell what you're thinking...

(I want that Spiritual Stone)
You mean the Spiritual Stone of Water, Zora's Sapphire, don't you?

My mother gave it to me and said I should give it only to the man who will be
my husband. You might call it the Zora's Engagement Ring!
(line centered) All right!
I'll give you my most precious possession:
Zora's Sapphire!
(obtain Zora's Sapphire)
(Her most precious possession? You don't know what she's talking about, but
you've finally collected all three Spiritual Stones!!
Go back to see Princess Zelda!)
(black screen)
Don't tell my father...

~ 5.11 Ganondorf and Link Meet ~

――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――

GANONDORF, IN FRONT OF HYRULE CASTLE TOWN MOAT:
(centered)
Arrrrgh! I lost her!
You, over there!
Little kid!
You must have seen the white
horse gallop past just now...
Which way did it go?!
Answer me!!
So, you think you can protect
them from me...
You've got guts, kid.
(Link draws his sword)
(Ganondorf sniggers ominously)
Heh heh heh...
You want a piece of me?!
Very funny!
I like your attitude!
(Ganondorf raises left hand, blasts Link with magic)
Pathetic little fool!
Do you realize who you are
dealing with?!
I am Ganondorf!
And soon, I will rule the world!
(rides off as Link looks on)

ZELDA, WHEN LINK RETRIEVES THE OCARINA OF TIME:
(You found the Ocarina of Time! This is the Royal Family's hidden treasure
which Zelda left behind. It glow with a mystical light...)
Link...Can you hear me?
It's me, Zelda...
Link, when you hold this Ocarina in your hand...
I won't be around anymore...
I wanted to wait for you, but I couldn't delay any longer...
At least I could leave you the Ocarina and this melody...
This song opens the Door of Time...
(You've learned the Song of Time!)
Now, Link.
Play this melody in front of the altar in the Temple of Time.
You must protect the Triforce!

SARIA:
Link...
I don't know what it is...
I have this feeling of dread...
The Castle...
Yes, something bad is happening at the Castle!

BEARDED GUY, IN HYRULE CASTLE TOWN MARKET:
That guy riding on the black horse must have been Ganondorf, who is renowned as
the Gerudo King of Thieves.

GUY BY POTION SHOP:
Wasn't that Princess Zelda riding on the white horse?!

GUY IN BLACK VEST, GREEN PANTS:
Something happened in the castle!
Kid, you'd better be careful!

OLD WOMAN:
I have a feeling something terrible is going to happen...
Maybe I should leave town soon.

OLD MAN IN BLUE:
The one riding on the white horse holding the little girl...
Wasn't that a legendary Sheikah?

GUY IN BLUE SHIRT, WHITE TIGHTS:
I almost got kicked by that black horse!

GUY ON LEDGE:
We don't see a lot of Gerudos in these parts...
Something fishy is going on!

SOLDIER GUARDING GATE TO HYRULE CASTLE:
There's a lot going on in the castle right now. I can't allow even a dog to get
into the castle!

ALTAR IN TEMPLE OF TIME:
(There are three hollows and an inscription here....)
Ye who owns 3 Spiritual Stone
Stand with the Ocarina of Time
And play the Song of Time
(That is how the inscription reads.)

NAVI, SEEING THE MASTER SWORD:
Link, isn't that...?!
(flies over to it)
It's that legendary blade...
The Master Sword!!

――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――

GANONDORF, TALKING TO LINK TELEPATHICALLY (centered):
Geh heh heh! Excellent work!
As I thought, you held the keys to the Door of Time!
You have led me to the gates of the Sacred Realm...
Yes, I owe it all to you, kid!
(long, roaring laugh)

RAURU, WHEN LINK WAKES UP IN THE CHAMBER OF SAGES:
Link...
             Wake up...
Link, the chosen one...
I am Rauru, one of the ancient Sages...
Ages ago, we ancient Sages built the Temple of Time to protect the entrance to
the Sacred Realm...
This is the Chamber of Sages, inside the Temple of Light...
The Temple of Light, situated in the very center of the Sacred Realm, is the
last stronghold against Ganondorf's evil forces.
The Master Sword--the evil-destroying sword that you pulled out of the Pedestal
of Time--was the final key to the Sacred Realm.
Link...
Don't be alarmed...
Look at yourself...!
(Navi:
Look Link!
   You're big now!!
   You've grown up!)
The Master Sword is a sacred blade which evil ones may never touch...
Only one worthy of the title of "Hero of Time" can pull it from the Pedestal of
Time....
However, you were too young to be the Hero of Time...
Therefore, your spirit was sealed here for seven years.
And now that you are old enough, the time has come for you to awaken as the
Hero of Time!
Well, do you understand your destiny? (yes)
But, remember...
Though you opened the Door of Time in the name of peace...
Ganondorf, the Gerudo King of Thieves, used it to enter this forbidden Sacred
Realm!
He obtained the Triforce from the Temple of Light, and with its power, he
became the King of Evil...
His evil power radiated from the temples of Hyrule, and in seven short years,
it transformed Hyrule into a world of monsters.
My power now has only little influence, even in this Sacred Realm...
Namely, this Chamber of Sages.
But there is still hope...
The power of the Sages remains.
When the power of all the Sages is awakened...
The Sages' Seals will contain all the evil power in the void of the Realm...
I, Rauru, am one of the Sages...
And...
Your power to fight together with the Sages makes you the Hero of Time!
The Hero of Time, chosen by the Master Sword!
Keep my spirit with you...
And, find the power of the other Sages and add their might to your own!
(You received the Light Medallion!
Rauru the Sage adds his power to yours!)
(white screen)
Find the other Sages
and save Hyrule!

NAVI, AFTER LINK WAKES UP IN TEMPLE OF TIME:
Link... we're back in the Temple of Time...
But have seven years really passed?
It looks like you won't be able to use some of the weapons you found as a kid
anymore...
Let's get out of here!

SHEIK, IN LINK'S FIRST MEETING WITH HIM IN THE TEMPLE OF TIME:
I've been waiting for you, Hero of Time...
When evil rules all, an awakening voice from the Sacred Realm will call those
destined to be Sages, who dwell in the five temples.
One in a deep forest...
One on a high mountain...
One under a vast lake...
One within the house of the dead...
One inside a goddess of the sand...
Together with the Hero of Time, the awakened ones will bind the evil and return
the light of peace to the world...
This is the legend of the temples passed down by my people, the Sheikah.
I am Sheik.
Survivor of the Sheikahs...
As I see you standing there holding the mythical Master Sword, you really do
look like the legendary Hero of Time...
If you believe the legend, you have no choice. You must look for the five
temples and awaken the five Sages...
One Sage is waiting for the time of awakening in the Forest Temple. The Sage is
a girl I am sure you know...
Because of the evil power in the temple, she cannot hear the awakening call
from the Sacred Realm...
Unfortunately, equipped as you currently are, you cannot even enter the
temple...
But, if you believe what I'm saying, you should head to Kakariko Village...
Do you understand, Link?

INSCRIPTION ON ALTAR IN TEMPLE OF TIME (FUTURE):
The Ocarina of Time opened the
door. The Hero of Time, with the
Master Sword, descended here.

ONE-EYED GHOST SHOP OWNER:
Oh... you are quite an energetic young man. You're brave and handsome too.
Heh heh heh...your name is Link, isn't it.
Heh heh he...don't be surprised. I can read people's minds.
If I looked as good as you, I could run a different kind of business...heh he
heh...
My shop is the only Ghost Shop in Hyrule.
Because of the great Ganondorf, it is a fine time for a business like this...
heh heh heh...
Oh...I can only hope the world gets even worse!
The ghosts, called Poes, are spirits of concentrated hatred that appear in the
field and graveyard. They hate the world!
Young man, if you catch a Poe, I will pay a lot of money for it...
Heh heh hee!

GUY IN RED SHIRT, WHITE TIGHTS:
Look at this guy! Ever since he escaped from Hyrule Castle Town, he's become
even more timid!

GUY IN BLUE SHIRT, WHITE TIGHTS:
I tell you, I saw him!
I saw the ghostly figure of Dampι the gravekeeper sinking into his grave. It
looked like he was holding some kind of treasure!

OLD MAN IN BLUE:
(day)
A long time ago...
There was a man in this very village who had an eye they said could see the
truth!
Now usually, you have to train your mind's eye most strenuously to actually see
the truth...
But this fella, no, they say he had a different way of doing things...
His house stood where the well is now...

(night)
Folks around here tell of a fabulously rich family that once lived in one of
the houses in this village...
But they say that the entire family was cursed due to their greed!
Who knows what might happen to those who are consumed by greed...

GRAVEKEEPER'S DIARY (FUTURE):
Whoever reads this, please enter my grave. I will let you have my stretching,
shrinking keepsake.
I'm waiting for you.
--Dampι

DAMPE'S GHOST:
Heh heh heh, young man!
Are you fast on your feet?
I may not look like it, but I'm confident in my speed!
Let's have a race!
Follow me if you dare!
(Link wins race)
Hehehe, young man...
You were very quick to be able to keep up with me! Hehehe!
As a reward, I'm going to give you my treasure. It's called the Hookshot!
It's spring-loaded chain will pull you to any spot where its hook sticks.
Doesn't that sound cool? I'm sure it will help you!
I live here now, so come back again sometime. I'll give you something cool!
One more thing! Be careful on your way back!
Heheheh....
(You found the Hookshot!
It's a spring-loaded chain that you can cast out to hook things.
You can use it to drag distant items toward you, or you can use it to pull
yourself toward something.)

KOKIRI GIRLS IN HOUSE OF TWINS:
Haven't I seen you somewhere before, mister?

Saria went to the temple and hasn't come back...

KOKIRI GIRL IN SARIA'S HOUSE:
Have you been traveling around much, mister?
Have you ever met a boy named Link?
Mido said that the Great Deku Tree whithered because that boy did something
wrong to it...
Only Saria defended Link--until she left.
Maybe we misunderstood...

KOKIRI BOYS IN MIDO'S HOUSE:
Why is that fairy following you around? You're not one of us!

I see. You didn't have any problems entering the forest, mister...
Did the meanies out there bother you much? Before the Great Deku Tree died, you
wouldn't see things like that around here...
Since it's dangerous outside, I always stay inside my house. But I'm bored to
death in here!

KOKIRI KNOW-IT-ALL BROTHERS:
Since the Great Deku Tree whithered...more meanies have been appearing in the
forest...
I'm scared!

Where's Saria?
Do you know Saria, mister?
That's weird...
Where has Mido gone during such an emergency?

An evil wind is blowing from the direction of the Forest Temple.
Saria left, saying,
"I have to do something
about it!"
The Forest Temple is located in the Sacred Forest Meadow in the far side of the
Lost Woods.

SARIA:
Great! You're safe!
I knew I would hear from you again! I'm in the Forest Temple!
The forest spirits were calling for help, so I went to check it out...
But it's full of evil monsters!
Help me, Link!

MIDO (BY ZORA'S RIVER WARP IN LOST WOODS)
What are you? Though you wear Kokirish clothing, you can't fool me!
I promised Saria I would never let anybody go through here.
(after playing Saria's Song)
      That melody?!
Saria plays that song all the time!
You...Do you know Saria?
That song...
Saria taught that song only to her friends...
OK...
I trust you.
When I see you...
I don't know why, but I remember...
him...

NAVI (SACRED FOREST MEADOW):
From here on, we'll be going through some narrow passages!
If you take it slow, maybe you can sneak up on some enemies.

SHEIK (IN FRONT OF FOREST TEMPLE):
The flow of time is always cruel...
Its speed seems different for each person, but no one can change it...
A thing that doesn't change with time is a memory of younger days...
In order to come back here again, play the Minuet of Forest.
(learn Minuet of Forest)
Link...
I'll see you again...

GANONDORF, WHEN LINK DEFEATS PHANTOM GANON:
Hey kid, you did quite well...
It looks like you may be gaining some slight skill...
But you have defeated only my phantom...
When you fight the real me, it won't be so easy!
What a worthless creation that ghost was! I will banish it to the gap between
dimensions!!

SARIA, IN CHAMBER OF SAGES:
Thank you...
Because of you, I could awaken as a Sage...
I am Saria.
The Sage of the Forest Temple...
I always believed that you would come. Because I know you...
No...
You don't have to explain it to me...
Because it is destiny that you and I can't live in the same world.
I will stay here as the Forest Sage and help you...
Now, please take this Medallion...
(You received the Forest Medallion!
Saria awakens as a Sage and adds her power to yours!)
(centered, white screen)
Saria will always be...
Your friend...

DEKU TREE SPROUT:
Hi there! I'm the Deku Tree sprout!
Because you and Saria broke the curse on the Forest Temple, I can grow and
flourish!
Thanks a lot!
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!
You must be wondering why only you have grown up!
Well, as you might have already guessed, you are not a Kokiri! You are actually
a Hylian!
I am happy to finally reveal this secret to you!
(cut scene)
Some time ago, before the King of Hyrule unified this country, there was a
fierce war in our world.
One day, to escape from the fires of the war, a Hylian mother and her baby boy
entered this forbidden forest.
The mother was gravely injured... Her only choice was to entrust the child to
the Deku Tree, the guardian spirit of the forest.
The Deku Tree could sense that this was a child of destiny, whose fate would
affect the entire world, so he took him into the forest.
After the mother passed away, the baby was raised as a Kokiri. And now,
finally, the day of destiny has come!
(end cut scene)
You are a Hylian, and were always bound to leave this forest.
And now...
You have learned your own destiny...
So you know what you must do...
That's right...
You must save the land of Hyrule!
Now, Link, break the curses on all of the Temples, and return peace to Hyrule!!

MIDO, AFTER LINK BEATS THE FOREST TEMPLE:
Oh...I see...
Saria won't ever come back...
But...I...I made a promise to Saria...
If Link came back, I would be sure to tell him that Saria had been waiting for
him...
Because Saria...really...
liked...
(line centered) Hey, you.
If you see him somewhere, please let him know...
And also...
(aligned right)
I'm sorry for being mean to him.
Tell him that, too.

SHEIK, MEETING LINK IN THE TEMPLE OF TIME A SECOND TIME:
You destroyed the wicked creatures that haunted the temple and awakened the
Sage...
But there are still other Sages who need your help.
In order to awaken all the other Sages, you must become even more powerful.
You must travel over mountains...
under water...
and even through time...
If you want to return to your original time, return the Master Sword to the
Pedestal of Time.
By doing this, you will travel back in time seven years...
The time will come when you will have to return here quickly...
I will teach this to you for when that time comes...
The song to return you to the Temple of Time...
The Prelude of Light...
(learn the song)
As long as you hold the Ocarina of Time and the Master Sword, you hold time
itself in your hands...
Link, we shall meet again!

~ 5.16 Goron City and the Fire Temple ~

――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――

ROLLING GORON IN GORON CITY, AFTER LINK BOMBS HIM:
How could you do this to me? You, you're Ganondorf's servant!
Hear my name and tremble!
I am Link!
Hero of the Gorons!
(speak to him)
What?
Your name is also Link?
Then you must be the legendary Dodongo Buster and Hero, Link!
My dad is Darunia...
Do you remember him?
Dad named me Link after you, because you're so brave!
It's a cool name!
I really like it!
Link, you're a hero to us Gorons!
I'm so glad to meet you!
Please give me your autograph!
Sign it:
 "To my friend,
 Link of the Gorons"
Oh...
I guess it's not a good time to ask you for this...
Please help everyone!
My dad, Darunia, went to the Fire Temple. A dragon is inside!
If we don't hurry up, even my dad will be eaten by the dragon!!
B-b-b-boooo hooooo!
(You'd better try to calm him down if you can...
Maybe he will calm down if you talk to him?
What do you want to ask him?)
(About the dragon)
A long time ago there was an evil dragon named Volvagia living in this
mountain.
That dragon was very scary! He ate Gorons!
Using a huge hammer, the hero of the Gorons... BOOOM!
Destroyed it just like that. This is a myth from long ago, but it's true!
I know, because my dad is a descendant of the hero!
B-b-b-boooo hooooo!
(About the Gorons)
Everybody was taken to the Fire Temple...
While my dad was out...
Ganondorf's followers came and took them all away!
All of them will be eaten by Volvagia!
Dad said that Ganondorf revived Volvagia...
As a warning to those who might oppose him, Ganondorf is going to feed them all
to Volvagia!
Dad went to the Fire Temple all by himself to try to save everyone...
Please help, Link!
I'll give you this heat-resistant tunic!
(get Goron Tunic)
(doors open, talk to him again)
Dad told me not to let anybody follow him to the temple, but...
Only you, Link, can save everyone!
I'm sure that the shop owner, who is hiding somewhere right now, will also help
you!
Now, I'll tell you about the secret passage to the Fire Temple!
Try to move the statue inside Dad's room!

SHEIK, IN DEATH MOUNTAIN CRATER:
It is something that grows over time... a true friendship.
A feeling in the heart that becomes stronger over time...
The passion of friendship will soon blossom into a righteous power and through
it, you will know which way to go...
This song is dedicated to the power of the heart...
Listen to the Bolero of Fire...
(learn song)
Link...
I'll see you again...

DARUNIA, IN FIRE TEMPLE:
Who's there?  Is that you, Link...?
Oh, it really is Link!
You've grown so big since I last saw you!
I want to have a man-to-man talk with you, but now's not the time.
Ganondorf is causing trouble on Death Mountain again!
He has revived the evil, ancient dragon Volvagia!
On top of that, he is going to feed my people to that evil dragon as a warning
to other races that might resist him...
If that fire-breathing dragon escapes from the mountain, all of Hyrule will
become a burning wasteland!
I will go on ahead to try to seal up the evil dragon...
I'm concerned, though, because I don't have the legendary hammer...
But I have no choice.
Link...I'm asking you to do this as my Sworn Brother...
While I'm trying to deal with the dragon, please save my people!
The prisoners' cells are in the opposite direction.
I'm counting on you, Link!

SAVED GORONS (IN FIRE TEMPLE):
(they all say this except for one)
Are you releasing me?
Am I free to go?
I'll tell you a secret for saving me!

In order to get into the room where Darunia went, you have to do something
about the pillar stuck in the ceiling.
Find a path that leads to a room above the ceiling right away!

There are switches in this temple that you have to cut to activate. But, you
can also use the Goron "special crop" to do the job.

A wall that you can destroy with the Goron's "special crop" will sound
different than a regular wall if you hit it with your sword.

When you are on fire, you an put it out by swinging your sword, or by rolling
forward... Did you know that?

In this temple, there are doors that fall down when you try to open them. When
one of these doors starts to fall, move!
If you use a sample of the Goron "special crop," you can break it...

Are you releasing me?
Am I free to go?
Here's a tip for rescuing me!
Somewhere in this temple, you're sure to meet up with some creatures that dance
as they attack. Arrows won't hurt them!
Looks like you might need some of the Goron "special crop!" That's all I have
to tell you!

If you find a place that you can see on the map, but can't reach, try playing
your Ocarina!

A door is hidden inside the statue at the entrance to this temple.
But, the Goron "special crop" won't work on it... Don't you have anything
stronger?

Oh, I see. Big Brother Darunia asked you to rescue me. I owe you big time!
Please help Big Brother!

DARUNIA, IN CHAMBER OF THE SAGES:
Thank you, Brother!
I really appreciate what you did. I thank you on behalf of the entire Goron
race!
You turned out to be a real man, just as I thought you would!
By the way, I, the wild Darunia, turned out to be the great Sage of Fire...
Isn't that funny, Brother?
Well, this must be what they call destiny.
Nothing has made me happier than helping you seal the evil here!
Hey, Brother, take this!
This is a Medallion that contains the power of the fire spirits--and my
friendship.
(get Fire Medallion)
(white screen, centered)
Don't forget...
Now you and I are true brothers!

LINK, DARUNIA'S SON:
Brother Link!
Everybody has come back!
Dad and you destroyed the dragon together, didn't you!
When I grow up, I want to be a strong man like you, Link!

――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――

TALON, SLEEPING IN KAKARIKO VILLAGE:
Z Z Z...
Malon...doing all right...
Mumble...mumble...
Sorry to make you worry...

TALON, WOKEN UP BY CUCOO:
(centered)
What in tarnation!
(end centered)
Can't a person get a little shut-eye around here?
(talk to him)
Ingo took over Lon Lon Ranch and they call it Ingo Ranch nowadays.
I was kicked out of there, and look at me now! My girl, Malon, still works at
the ranch...
I'm worried about her...

INGO, LON LON RANCH DURING DAY:
There are some people in Kakariko spreading rumors that I cheated Talon out of
the ranch, but...
(centered)
Don't be ridiculous!
(end centered)
That guy Talon was weak!
I, the hard-working Ingo, poured so much energy into this place!
I don't want any strangers like you saying anything bad about me!
Listen, the great Ganondorf recognized my obvious talents and gave the ranch to
me!
I will raise a fine horse and win recognition from the great Ganondorf!

INGO, ASLEEP AT NIGHT:
Z Z Z Z Z Z Z Z Z Z Z Z Z...
S-stop that song...I...
Mumble... mumble...

MALON, IN STABLE DURING DAY:
Oh...a visitor!
It's been a long time since we've had a visitor here...
Where did you come from?
Since Ganondorf came, people in the Castle Town have gone, places have been
ruined, and monsters are wandering everywhere.
Mr. Ingo is just using the ranch to gain Ganondorf's favor...
Everyone seems to be turning evil...
But Dad...
He was kicked out of the ranch by Mr. Ingo...
If I disobey Mr. Ingo, he will treat the horses so badly...
So...
There's nothing I can do...

MALON, OUTSIDE SINGING AT NIGHT:
Please keep it secret from Mr. Ingo that I sing this song...
(play Epona's Song)
You...
Do you know my mother's song?
Everyone really liked that song...
My dad... Even Mr. Ingo...
But...since Ganondorf appeared, Mr. Ingo has changed completely.
I can remember the good old days only while I sing the song. Also...
Epona really liked that song...
Only I could tame that horse...
Even Mr. Ingo had a hard time...
Hee hee hee!

INGO, WHEN LINK BEATS HIM AT RACING:
(centered)
S-shoot!
(end centered)
If the great Ganondorf found out about this humiliation...
Hey, you!! How about another race! If you win...
You can keep...the horse!!
(beat him again)
What's up with that horse?!
Is that Epona?
How did you tame that wild horse right under my nose?!
I was going to present that horse to the great Ganondorf... But I bet it on the
race and lost! Shooot!
(centered)
Hah ha hah!
(end centered)
As I promised, I'll give the horse to you...
However...
I'll never let you leave this ranch!

INGO, AFTER MALON HAS TAKEN OVER:
Hi there, how are you?
I am Ingo. I feel so honored to be allowed to work here.

INGO, IN BED AT NIGHT:
Z Z Z Z Z Z Z Z...
Mumble... It's not easy to be a working man...

MALON, OUTSIDE DURING THE DAY:
Thank you very much for the other day... I haven't even asked you your name
yet...
........
Really?
Link!
That's what I thought!
You're the fairy boy from the forest! That was years ago! Do you remember me?
You do? I was sure it was you because Epona remembered you!
Oh, I have to tell you about Mr. Ingo...
He was afraid that the Evil King might find out that Epona had been taken
away... It really upset him!
But one day, all of a sudden, he went back to being a normal, nice person!
Now my dad is coming back...I can't believe it, but peace is returning to this
ranch!
It's all because of you! I owe you so much!
Thank you! Thank you, Link!

TALON, AFTER SAVING LON LON RANCH:
Did you save Malon? Thanks! I'm goin' back to the ranch, then! Yeehah!

――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――

NAVI:
An arctic wind is blowing from Zora's River...do you feel it?

SHEIK, IN ICE CAVERN:
We meet again, Link...
If you came here to meet the Zoras, you wasted your time...
This is all there is...
With one exception, the Zoras are all now sealed under this thick ice sheet...
I managed to rescue the Zora princess from under the ice, but...
she left to head for the Water Temple...
This ice is created by an evil curse... The monster in the Water Temple is the
source of the curse.
Unless you shut off the source, this ice will never melt....
If you have courage enough to confront the danger and save the Zoras, I will
teach you the melody that leads to the temple.
Time passes, people move....
Like a river's flow, it never ends...
A childish mind will turn to noble ambition... Young love will become deep
affection... The clear water's surface reflects growth...
Now listen to the Serenade of Water to reflect upon yourself....
(learn Serenade of Water)
Link...
I'll see you again...

KING ZORA, FREED FROM THE RED ICE:
Oh--I've come back to life!
Was it you who saved me?
Don't be nervous!
It looks like you have a hard time breathing underwater.
As an expression of my gratitude, I grant you this tunic. With this, you won't
choke underwater.
(talk to him again)
Ah, I see...
Princess Ruto went to the Water Temple...

PRINCESS RUTO, IN WATER TEMPLE:
Oh...you... If I'm right...
Link?!
You're Link, aren't
you?
It's me, your fiancιe, Ruto!
Princess of the Zoras!
I never forgot the vows we made to each other seven years ago!
You're a terrible man to have kept me waiting for these seven long years...
But now is not the time to talk about love...
I'm sure you've already seen it! Zora's Domain--totally frozen!
A young man named Sheik saved me from under the ice...
But my father and the other Zoras have not...yet...
I want to save them all!
I want to save Zora's Domain!
You! You have to help me! This is a request from me, the woman who is going to
be your wife!
Link, you have to
help me destroy the evil monster in the Temple, OK?!
Inside the Water Temple, there are three places where you can change the water
level.
I'll lead the way.
Follow me, quickly!!

RUTO, AFTER LINK BEATS WATER TEMPLE:
Link...
I would have expected no less from the man I chose to be my husband.
Zora's Domain and its people will eventually return to their original state.
As a reward...
I grant my eternal love to you.
Well, that's what I want to say, but I don't think I can offer that now.
I have to guard the Water Temple as the Sage of Water...
And you... You're searching for the princess, Zelda?
Hah!
You can't hide anything from me!
Princess Zelda... She's alive. I can sense it...so don't be discouraged.
I can tell that nothing will stop you in your quest for justice and peace...
You must take this Medallion... Take it respectfully!
(receive Water Medallion)
(white screen)
If you see Sheik, please give him my thanks, OK?

SHEIK, AFTER LINK BEATS WATER TEMPLE:
As the water rises, the evil is vanishing from the lake...
Link, you did it!
(Link warps in)
Did Ruto want to thank me?
I see...
We have to return peace to Hyrule for her sake, too. Don't we?
Look at that, Link...
Together, you and Princess Ruto destroyed the evil monster! Once again, the
lake is filled with pure water. All is as it was here.

INSCRIPTION ON LAKE HYLIA STONE:
When water fills the lake,
shoot for the morning light.

~ 5.19 Kakariko Village and the Shadow Temple ~

――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――

SHEIK, WHEN KAKARIKO IS BURNING:
Get back, Link!
(Sheik and Link get beaten up)
Looks like you're coming around...
Link...
A terrible thing has happened! The evil shadow spirit has been released!
Impa, the leader of Kakariko Village, had sealed the evil shadow spirit in the
bottom of the well....
But the force of the evil spirit got so strong, the seal of the well broke, and
it escaped into the world!!
I believe Impa has gone to the Shadow Temple to seal it up again, but...she
will be in danger without any help!
Link!
Impa is one of the six Sages. Destroy the evil shadow spirit and save Impa!
There is an entrance to the Shadow Temple beneath the graveyard behind this
village.
The only thing I can do for you is teach you the melody that will lead you to
the Shadow Temple...
This is the melody that will draw you into the infinite darkness that absorbs
even time... Listen to this, the Nocturne of Shadow!!
(learn the Nocturne of Shadow)
Let me take care of the village! I'm counting on you, Link!

WINDMILL MAN:
Grrrrrrrrr!
I'll never forget what happened on that day, seven years ago!
Grrrrrrrrr!
It's all that Ocarina kid's fault! Next time he comes around here, I'm gonna
mess him up!

(take out the Ocarina)
What?! You've got an ocarina!!
What the heck!
That reminds me of that time, seven years ago!
Back then a mean kid came here and played a strange song. It messed up this
windmill!
I'll never forget this song!
(learn Song of Storms)

(talk to him again)
Oh, no! A storm again!!
You played the Ocarina again, didn't you!!
Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!

NAVI, IN THE BOTTOM OF THE WELL:
I can hear the spirits whispering in this room...
"Look for the eye of truth..." That's what they are saying!

VOICES IN THE SHADOW TEMPLE:
(all centered)
The Shadow will yield only to one with the eye of truth, handed down in
Kakariko Village.

One who gains the eye of truth will be able to see what is hidden in the
darkness.

Shadow Temple...
Here is gathered Hyrule's bloody history of greed and hatred...

What is hidden in the darkness...
Tricks full of ill will...
You can't see the way forward...

SIGNS IN THE SHADOW TEMPLE:
(all centered)
Make my beak face the skull of truth. The alternative is descent into deep
darkness.

Only one who has sacred feet can cross the valley of the dead.

Only one with the eye of truth will find the stone umbrella that protects
against the rain of blades.

NAVI, IN THE SHADOW TEMPLE:
Here...I can hear the spirits whispering in this room...
"Those who have sacred feet should let the wind guide them. Then, they will be
led to the hidden path."
That's what they are saying!

Link!
This ship is sinking!
Abandon ship!
Get onto a safe platform!

IMPA, WHEN LINK BEATS THE SHADOW TEMPLE:
The boy with the noble Zelda's Ocarina...As I expected, you have come.
I am Impa, one of the Sheikah. I am Princess Zelda's caretaker, and I am also
the Sage who guards the Shadow Temple.
We Sheikah have served the royalty of Hyrule from generation to generation as
attendants. However...
On that day seven years ago, Ganondorf suddenly attacked... and Hyrule Castle
surrendered after a short time.
Ganondorf's target was one of the keys to the Sacred Realm...the hidden
treasure of the Royal Family... The Ocarina of Time!
My duty bound me to take Zelda out of Ganondorf's reach. When last I saw you,
as we made our escape from the castle, you were just a lad...
Now I see that you have become a fine hero...
There's nothing to worry about...The Princess is safe now.
Soon, you'll meet Princess Zelda face-to-face, and she will explain
everything...
That is when we, the six Wise Ones, will seal up the Evil King and return peace
to Hyrule.
I have to stay here... You go to Princess Zelda's side and protect her on my
behalf.
Now I put my power, which should be helpful to you, into this Medallion!
(receive Shadow Medallion)

Please look out for the Princess!

~ 5.20 Saving Carpenters From Gerudo's Fortress ~

――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――

BOSS OF THE CARPENTERS, IN GERUDO VALLEY:
I am a master craftsman. Those Gerudo thieves...they broke the bridge.
I want to fix it, but all of my workers are gone! They said that working as
carpenters isn't cool, and they went to the Gerudo's fortress to become
thieves...
Hey, you! If you're going to the fortress, would you mind finding out what my
workers are doing over there?

CARPENTERS, IN THE GERUDO FORTRESS:
(all say this part)
Hey, you! Young man, over there! Look over here, inside the cell!
(talk to him)
I have no idea where you come from, but you must have a lot of guts to make it
past all the guards around here! All of my fellow carpenters are imprisoned
somewhere in here. If you can get us out of here, we'll repay the favor
somehow!
But be careful! There're sure to be Gerudo guards somewhere around here....
Woo! Watch out!
(fight Gerudo guard)

Did you come here to save me? Oh, that's just swell! I'm Ichiro the carpenter.
We were really interested in joining their all-female group, but they locked us
up like this just because we're men! We don't care about the Gerudo anymore!
They're so rude!
Three of my fellows have also been captured, so please help them escape, too!

You're a cute kid! Thank you for coming to save me! I'm Jiro, the carpenter.
These women are so scary! I'd rather work as a carpenter than join them!
I can't wait to say good-bye to this place! Two of my buddies are still being
held prisoner. Will you please get them out, too?

Thanks, boy! You're fantastic! I'm Sabooro, the carpenter.
Have you seen our boss, boy? He's probably worried about me! I have to get back
to him immediately!
One more of our workers is still a prisoner. Please save him!

I was afraid you were going to forget about me! Now I'm free! Thanks! I'm Shiro
the carpenter.
For rescuing me, I'll tell you something interesting about the desert that I
overheard the Gerudos talking about.
They said, "In order to cross the Haunted Wasteland, you'll need the 'eye of
truth.' The Colossus is on the far side of the wasteland..."
OK, now I'm going back to my tent near Gerudo Valley, so, drop by sometime. You
may find something helpful there! Byeee!

HEAD GERUDO, AFTER LINK FREES THE LAST CARPENTER:
I've seen your fine work. To get past the guards here, you must have good
thieving skills.
I used to think that all men, besides the great Ganondorf, were useless...but
now that I've seen you, I don't think so anymore!
The exalted Nabooru, our leader, put me in charge of this fortress.
Nabooru is the second-in-command to the great Ganondorf, King of the Gerudo
Thieves.
Her headquarters are in the Spirit Temple, which is at the end of the desert.
Say, you must want to become one of us, eh?
All right, then!
You're in from now on!
Take this. With it, you will have free access to all areas of the fortress!
(get Gerudo's Membership Card)
(talk to her)
From now on, you're free to come and go as you please through the gate to the
desert.
You'll find the Shadow Temple, where the exalted Nabooru lives, out there in
the desert.

CARPENTERS' BOSS, AFTER LINK SAVES THE CARPENTERS:
Hey, I heard you saved my men. When they returned, we built this bridge. Look
at this!
Isn't it a fine bridge?
They may be wimpy carpenters, but once they all got together, they got the job
done.

CARPENTERS, IN THEIR TENT IN GERUDO VALLEY:
The leader of the gang of thieves is Nabooru. She is experimenting with
brainwashing many people at the ruins in the desert.

When Nabooru was a lone wolf thief, she never stole from the weak, but...
Now, Nabooru's gang of thieves stands for cruelty and brutality. She claims to
be a chivalrous robber, but...no way!

In Gerudo society, those who have great skill in horseback riding and archery
are well respected.
How about trying horseback archery at the Gerudo's Fortress?
If you have a horse, a Gerudo from the fortress will set up your challenge.

Now that we're all back together, building a bridge over the valley was a piece
of cake.

______________________________________________________________

~ 5.21 Haunted Wasteland and the Spirit Temple ~

――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――

HORSEBACK ARCHERY GERUDO:
(talk to her when not riding Epona)
Hey, newcomer! This is our horseback archery field.
After a lot of hard practice and training, we finally have the skill to hit the
bull's-eye while riding like the wind!
When you finally learn how to ride a horse, you should come back and try it.
It's a dangerous sport, but it's fun!

GERUDO ON HAUNTED WASTELAND GATE WATCH TOWER:
Hey, rookie!
Are you going into the desert? I'll open this gate for you, but...
You can't cross the desert unless you pass the two trials.
The first trial is...the River of Sand! You can't walk across this river! After
you cross it, follow the flags we placed there.
The second trial is...the Phantom Guide!
Those without eyes that can see the truth will only find themselves returning
here.
You are going anyway, aren't you?
I won't stop you...
Go ahead!
(clap, clap, gate goes up)

SIGN IN FRONT OF HAUNTED WASTELAND:
(centered)
If you chase a mirage, the desert will swallow you.
Only one path is true.

INSCRIPTION ON HAUNTED WASTELAND PLAQUE:
One with the eye of truth shall be guided to the Spirit Temple by an inviting
ghost.

THE PHANTOM GUIDE'S MESSAGE:
I'll be your guide on your way,
but coming back, I won't play!
I'll show you the only way to go,
so follow me and don't be slow!

INSCRIPTIONS IN SPIRIT TEMPLE:
If you want to travel to the future, you should return here with the power of
silver from the past.

If you want to proceed to the past, you should return here with the pure heart
of a child.

SHEIK, IN FRONT OF SPIRIT TEMPLE:
(owl flies overhead)
Past, present, future...
The Master Sword is a ship with which you can sail upstream and downstream
through time's river...
The port for that ship is in the Temple of Time...
To restore the Desert Colossus and enter the Spirit Temple, you must travel
back through time's flow...
Listen to this Requiem of Spirit...
This melody will lead a child back to the desert.
(learn Requiem of Spirit while owl looks on, owl flies away)

NABOORU, WHEN LINK MEETS HER AS A CHILD:
I haven't seen you around, kid...
What do you want?

(To see the temple)
You're just a kid! The temple is no place for kids!

(Looking for the Sages)
A Sage? I don't know anyone like that.

(Nothing, really)
You have nothing to do? What good timing! Can you do me a favor, kid?
Wait a second, I want to ask you first--you wouldn't happen to be one of
Ganondorf's...
followers...would you?

(What if I am?)
Wha-ha-ha!
Don't try to act cool, kid.
I was just asking!
A kid like you could never be one of Ganondorf's followers!
Well, let's cut to the chase...

(I hate Ganondorf)
Uh-huh!
You've got guts.
I think I like you.

First of all, let me introduce myself. I'm Nabooru of the Gerudo. I'm a lone
wolf thief. But don't get me wrong!
Though we're both thieves, I'm completely different from Ganondorf. With his
followers, he stole from women and children, and even killed people!
A kid like you may not know this, but the Gerudo race consists only of women.
Only one man is born every hundred years...
Even though our laws say that lone male Gerudo must become King of the Gerudo,
I'll never bow to such an evil man!
By the way, what is your name, kid?
Link?!
What kind of name is that? Well...anyway...
I want to ask you a favor...
Will you go through this tiny hole and get a treasure that's inside?
The treasure is the Silver Gauntlets. If you equip them, you can easily push
and pull very heavy things!
No, no, no, kid! Don't even think about taking this treasure for yourself!
The Silver Gauntlets won't fit a little kid like you if you try to equip them!
I want you to be a good boy and give them to me!
Ganondorf and his minions are using the Spirit Temple as a hideout.
Only the Silver Gauntlets will allow me to sneak deep into the temple.
Once there, I'm going to steal all the treasure inside and mess up their plans!
How about it? Will you do it?

(No)
Well, what did I expect? After all, you're just a kid!

(Yes)
Thanks, kid!
You and I, let's give Ganondorf and his followers a big surprise, shall we?
If you can successfully get the Silver Gauntlets...
I'll do something great for you!

OWL, WHEN LINK GETS SILVER GAUNTLETS:
Hey, what's up, Link?
Surprised to see me?
A long time in this world is almost nothing to you, is it? How mysterious!
Even I thought that the tales of a boy who could travel back and forth through
time was merely a legend.
Link, you have fully matured as an adult.
From now on, the future of all the people in Hyrule is on your shoulders.
Maybe it's not my time anymore. Here is my last advice.
Two witches inhabit this temple. In order to destroy them, turn their own magic
against them.
Hoo hoot!
I will continue to watch you...
Hoo hoo hoo hoot!

NABOORU, BEING KIDNAPPED BY THE WITCHES:
(scream)
Hey! Where are you taking me?!
Yeearggh! Let me go!!
(Link spots Nabooru)
You, you fiends!
Ganondorf's minions!
Link!
Get out of here! Now!
These witches! They're using black magic on me!

LINK'S ENCOUNTER WITH SORCERESS SISTERS TWINROVA:
Ho ho ho!
Looks like someone is here, Koume.

Hee hee hee!
Looks like it, Kotake!

What an outrageous fellow he is, to intrude so boldly into our Temple...
Ho ho ho!

We should teach this outrageous fellow a lesson!
Hee hee hee!

Oh, loyal minion...
Destroy this intruder on our behalf!

(defeat Iron Knuckle, metal falls off to reveal Nabooru underneath)
(Nabooru)
Unnnh...
Where am I...?

Well, well...
Looks like she's back to normal...
Koume...

She's just a little girl, but she commands a lot of respect among the Gerudo,
Kotake...

Maybe we should make her work for the great Ganondorf for a little while
longer!
Ho ho ho!

Then we should brainwash her again!
Hee hee hee!

(she tries to run, they make her disappear, Link continues to their lair)

Look at that stupid kid! He came on his own to offer himself as a sacrifice to
the great Ganondorf...

(centered)
With my flame, I will burn him to the bone!

(centered)
With my frost, I will freeze him to his soul!

(fight Sorceress Sisters Twinrova)

(Navi's description)
Twinrova Kotake
Ganondorf's surrogate mother. Sorceress of Ice. She seems vulnerable to high
temperature.

(Navi's description)
Twinrova Koume
Ganondorf's surrogate mother. Sorceress of Fire. She seems vulnerable to low
temperature.)

(defeated)
OK, let's get serious now, Kotake!

Oh, OK, Koume.

(centered)
Kotake and Koume's
Double Dynamite Attack!

(defeated again)
(centered)
Shoot, what a fresh kid!
This time, we'll get serious,
right Kotake?

What?

Hey, Koume, what is that above your head?

I don't know, but you have one over your head too, Kotake!

But I'm only 400 years old!

And I'm just 380 years old!

We're twins! Don't try to lie about your age!

You must have gone senile!

Who are you calling senile?! Is that how you treat your older sister?

We are twins! How can you be older?

Keeeyaaah!!
How heartless you are!

How can you be so ungrateful?

You're heartless!

You ungrateful...

(fading to white screen)
I'll come back to haunt you!

NABOORU, AFTER LINK BEATS SPIRIT TEMPLE:
Kid, let me thank you. Heheheh...look what the little kid has become in the
past seven years--a competent swordsman!
By the way...
I really messed up...
I was brainwashed by those old witches and used by Ganondorf to do his evil
will...
But isn't it funny? That a person like me could turn out to be the Sage of
Spirit!
And now, I'm going to fight them as one of the six Sages!
Heh heh...
I'm going to pay them back for what they did to me!
Kid...
No...
Link, the Hero of Time!
Instead of keeping the promise I made back then, I give you this Medallion!
Take it!
(receive Spirit Medallion)
(white screen)
If only I knew you would become such a handsome man...
I should have kept the promise I made back then...

~ 5.22 Zelda in the Temple of Time ~

――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――――

RAURU, AFTER LINK AWAKENS ALL THE SAGES:
Link, the hero!
Finally, all of us, the six Sages, have been awakened!
The time for the final showdown with the King of Evil has come!
Before that, though, you should meet the one who is waiting for you...
The one who is waiting for you at the Temple of Time...

SHEIK/ZELDA IN TEMPLE OF TIME:
I have been waiting for you, Link.
Link, the Hero of Time...
You have overcome many hardships and awakened six Sages.
And now you have a final challenge, a showdown with Ganondorf, the King of
Evil....
Before that... I have things I want to tell only to you. Please listen.
Another unknown legend of the Triforce passed down by the shadow folk, the
Sheikahs....
(cut scene)
(centered)
If you would seek the sacred triangle, listen well...
The resting place of the sacred triangle, the Sacred Realm, is a mirror that
reflects what is in the heart...
the heart of one who enters it...
If an evil heart, the Realm will become full of evil; if pure, the Realm will
become a paradise.
The Triforce...the sacred triangle...
it is a balance that weighs the three forces:
Power, Wisdom and Courage.
If the heart of the one who holds the sacred triangle has all three forces in
balance, that one will gain the True Force to govern all.
But, if that one's heart is not in balance, the Triforce will separate into
three parts:
Power, Wisdom and Courage.
Only one part will remain for the one who touched the Triforce...the part
representing the force that one most believes in.
If that one seeks the True Force, that one must acquire the two lost parts.
Those two parts will be held within others chosen by destiny, who will bear the
Triforce mark on the backs of their hands.
(end cut scene)
Seven years ago, Ganondorf, the King of Thieves, used the door you opened in
the Temple of Time and entered the Sacred Realm.
But when he laid his hands on the Triforce, the legend came true.
The Triforce separated into three parts. Only the Triforce of Power remained in
Ganondorf's hand.
The strength of the Triforce of Power enabled him to become a mighty, evil
king, but his dark ambitions were not satisfied.
To gain complete mastery of the world, Ganondorf started looking for those
chosen by destiny to hold the two other Triforce parts.
The one who holds the Triforce of Courage is...
You, Link!
And the other, who holds the Triforce of Wisdom...
is the seventh Sage, who is destined to be the leader of them all...
(Sheik reveals himself as Zelda)
It is I, the Princess of Hyrule, Zelda.
I apologize for meeting you in disguise, but it was necessary to hide from the
King of Evil.
Please forgive me...
On that day, seven years ago, Ganondorf attacked Hyrule Castle.
(flashback)
I saw you as I was escaping from the castle with my attendant, Impa.
I thought I should entrust the Ocarina to you... I thought that would be our
best chance...
(end flashback)
As long as you had the Ocarina in your possession, I thought Ganondorf could
never enter the Sacred Realm, but...
something I could never expect happened...
After you opened the door of time, the Master Sword sealed you away in the
Sacred Realm...
Your spirit remained in the Sacred Realm...and then the Triforce fell into
Ganondorf's hands.
He went on to invade the Sacred Realm...
Ganondorf had become the Evil King, and the Sacred Realm became a world of
evil. All of this is an unfortunate coincidence.
I passed myself off as a Sheikah and hoped that you would return. I waited for
seven years...
And...now you are back. The dark age ruled by Ganondorf the Evil King will end!
The six Sages will open the sealed door and lure Ganondorf back into the Sacred
Realm.
I will then seal the door to the Sacred Realm from this world.
Thus, Ganondorf the Evil King will vanish from Hyrule.
Link...
In order to do this, I need your courage again. Please protect me while I do my
part.
And here is a weapon that can penetrate the Evil King's defenses...
The power given to the chosen ones...
(centered)
The sacred Arrow of Light!!!
(You got the Light Arrow! The light of justice will smite evil!)
(rumble)
That rumbling...It can't be!?

GANONDORF, KIDNAPPING ZELDA FROM THE TEMPLE OF TIME:
Princess Zelda...you foolish traitor!
I commend you for avoiding my pursuit for seven long years.
But you let your guard down...
I knew you would appear if I let this kid wander around!
My only mistake was to slightly underestimate the power of this kid...
No...
It was not the kid's power I misjudged, it was the power of the Triforce of
Courage!
But, with the Triforce of Wisdom that Zelda has...
When I obtain these two Triforces...
Then, I will become the true ruler of the world!!
(Zelda disappears)
If you want to rescue Zelda, come to my castle!
(long roaring laugh)

CURSE YOU...LINK!
Someday...
When this seal is broken....
That is when I will exterminate your descendants!!
As long as the Triforce of Power is in my hand....

ZELDA, END OF GAME:
Thank you, Link...
Thanks to you, Ganondorf has been sealed inside the Evil Realm!
Thus, peace will once again reign in this world...for a time.
All the tragedy that has befallen Hyrule was my doing...
I was so young...I could not comprehend the consequences of trying to control
the Sacred Realm.
I dragged you into it, too. Now it is time for me to make up for my mistakes...
You must lay the Master Sword to rest and close the Door of Time...
However, by doing this, the road between times will be closed...
Link, give the Ocarina to me...
As a Sage, I can return you to your original time with it.
(gives it, Zelda is sad)
When peace returns to Hyrule...
It will be time for us to say good-bye...
Now, go home, Link.
Regain your lost time!
Home...
where you are supposed to be...
the way you are supposed to be...
(plays the Song of Time)

Thank you...
Link...
Good-bye.
