* The second volume of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cLTnvRoxfPk Time's End]], which was partially used in the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vbMQfaG6lo8&t=111s Majora's Mask: Terrible Fate]] short film, was well worth the four-year wait.

* Take an OminousPipeOrgan, give it a driving, BadAss rhythm, add a little Harpsichord of High-Class Evil, and you get [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e5ErrrQ9-Jo Vaati's theme.]]

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cAVn71rNImI Zelda's Lullaby]] becomes a more emotionally charged piece in this game - ''especially'' when you hear it in-game for the first time.

* The main theme was conspicuous by its absence from ''Ocarina of Time'', [[https://youtu.be/zO8Y7hdD6Qk?t=80 apart from a riff]] [[SuspiciouslySimilarSong that's suspiciously similar to the original theme]]. Fastforward to 2011, and Creator/MahitoYokota decided to make up for it by giving it a stellar appearance in the remake for 3DS [[https://youtu.be/tRapMAQOBh0?t=88 on the extended Staff Credits theme]], this time performed by an orchestra[[note]]On top of that, it appears at the point in the melody where the aforementioned similar riff appears in most recordings of the "Hyrule Field Theme", including the official soundtrack release. Coincidence?[[/note]].

** Zelda's also has a stellar appearance in the magnificent "[[https://youtu.be/N8nCEDyGHKk?t=180 Staff Credits]]" theme, which forms the third movement. And also, it's the riff that [[https://youtu.be/N8nCEDyGHKk?t=294 wraps up]] the melody, putting a perfect final bow to one of the best themes in the entire series. Like the appearance of Link's leitmotif, this would also become another common practice in the Staff Credits music for later installments.

** As for its appearance in the "[[https://youtu.be/M1uxmcMCJu0?t=105 Staff Credits]]", this time appears around half way through, with a build up that will throw shivers through your spine.

One small clarification, although the official title is "Zelda's Theme", it's better known among fans as "Zelda's Lullaby". So don't be surprised if you see that title in some of this linked videos.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cAVn71rNImI Zelda's Theme]] makes a comeback in ''Skyward Sword'', with a full orchestra backing it up, which surely will bring tears to any Zelda's fan's eyes. Surprisingly enough, though, this is the only rendition Of Zelda's leitmotif in the entire game, which was ''extremely'' rare in the franchise at this point. [[spoiler:Unless you count "Ballad of the Goddess" and its multiple iterations, of course]].

** Then we have "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lNVelg0p9Sw Zelda's Portrait", which gives us the most ominous rendition of the them yet. That organ surely is spooky!
