''The Legend of Zelda'' franchise is, in essence, a mythos in the classical sense of the word: An evil [[SorcerousOverlord wizard]]/king/thief/[[HumanoidAbomination monster]] named [[BigBad Ganon]] (or Ganondorf, but [[FandomBerserkButton not Gannon]]) has cast a great evil over the [[TheKingdom land of Hyrule]], and a young boy in a sort of green PeterPan[=/=]RobinHood costume must save Hyrule by [[PlotCoupon recovering powerful artifacts]] that rest in [[TempleOfDoom places tainted]] [[DungeonCrawling by Ganon]]. [[BadassPrincess Princess Zelda]] is his resourceful and sometimes [[ImpliedLoveInterest ambiguous love interest]]. He either must [[SaveThePrincess rescue her]] or is guided by her, if not both at once.

* DivineBirds: Many entries in the series feature birds which offer Link some help in either direct or indirect form, from the bird statues in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening'' and ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'' which dispense advice, to the live bird in the latter game who serves as a WarpWhistle, to the owl-shaped {{save point}}s in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'', to the Loftwings (based on shoebills) in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword''. Even the royal crest of Hyrule, which was founded by the avatar of the goddess Hylia, features a pair of stylized wings.
