Group of Weirdos is a comedy fan-fiction by Mr. Light Chicken Bulbs, about ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' series. It is a retelling in which Link is an idiot, but the main attraction and source of the name is that each of the defeated bosses joins his entourage over the adventure, each with their own personalities and... flaws. There are currently two completed stories in the series,[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3045006/1/Group_of_Weirdos_Ocarina_of_Time Ocarina of Time]] and [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5629614/1/Group_of_Weirdos_Majoras_Mask Majora's Mask]], and a third one, based on Twilight Princess, is currently being updated [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7285727/1/Group_of_Weirdos_Twilight_Princess here]].

** Odowla is afraid of ghosts, making bringing him through Ikana very difficult. It only delays his item announcement, however. No force can stop that.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The humor in the first few parts of the first fanfic contained a lot of what some people would call "lol random" humor (Among plenty of other humor). It wouldn't be until around the end of the Forest Temple that it began to move away from this and into the more clever variety it's known for. Mr. Light Chicken Bulbs has since rewritten the early chapters specifically to avert this trope and make the quality more consistent.

* RunningGag: Quite a few. One notable one is that whenever Ocarina Link tries to use his ocarina, he plays the Bolero of Fire. This occurs before he even learns the song, once.
** And he does it again [[spoiler:right at the climax of Majora's Mask, too!]]

* AmbiguousGender: Majora, suggested to simply [[NoGender lack a gender]] and referred to as just an "it". Link decides to himself that it is female, though.



* GuestStarPartyMember: During ''Twilight Princess'', the bosses from ''Ocarina of Time'' and ''Majora's Mask'' [[spoiler:except Morpha/Morpheel, who are the same being]] come and go and generally only join Link's party for one dungeon. Justified since otherwise the author would have an impossible time [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters fitting in all those characters]]. Sometimes we see what they're up to away from the group as well.

Added DiffLines:

* WeAreStrugglingTogether: While Link likes all the bosses, they all hate him and mostly hate each other (There are a few sincere friendships in there, such as Phantom Ganon and Bongo Bongo). Inverted in Twilight Princess, however, where all the bosses seem oddly fond of each other and of Link, who would rather have nothing to do with any of them.

* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: During the final battle with Majora, the different things Majora's Wrath does: [[spoiler: He roundhouse kicks King Dodongo into a wall, tears Phantom Ganon's head off and throws it down Volvagia's throat, slashes Gohma's eye, dropkicks Twinrova and uses her as a meatshield against Bongo-Bongo before freezing him, whips Barinade down to a bleeding pile of body parts...and kicks Morpha.]]

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Most of the bosses start out as somewhat flat, but develop parts of their personality over time, often via interaction with Link, the other bosses, and the enviroment. Barinade in particular went from fairly generic to one of the best characters in the story.

Added DiffLines:

** Ganondorf simply shuts down after a time paradox causes him to have ''four'' mothers instead of two.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Retcon}}: The early chapters of Ocarina have been rewritten significantly, though plot points haven't been changed much and it's mainly updating the humor to the more matured and clever quality seen later.
