'''WARNING''' - some unmarked spoilers for both games are present.


!!The Hero


While riding through the countryside of Hyrule, the Triforce summons Link to Hyrule Castle, where he is sent to either Holodrum or Labrynna. He has a Triforce mark on his hand, which signifies him as a hero from Hyrule to the natives of those lands. ''Hyrule Historia'' reveals him to be the same hero from ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast A Link to the Past]]'', with the ''Oracle'' games being the journey he returns from that results in his boat being destroyed at the start of ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendofZeldaLinksAwakening Link's Awakening]]''.

* {{Adorkable}}: Shown from some of his actions like botching a joke to nearly fainting at a kiss Zelda gives him.
* BadassAdorable: This version of him gives even Toon Link a run for his money, he saves ''two'' countries and defeats more bosses than most Links. That's not even going into the fact that if ''Hyrule Historia'' is anything to go by, he's already saved a country once, ends up defeating Ganon ''a second time'', then goes on to wake the Wind Fish. This Link has quite the Badass resume.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's generally portrayed as a friendly, kindhearted young man who tends to go out of his way to help those in distress. He is also the avatar of Courage, and has a history of beating the hell out of everything from dragons to demigods.
* BirthmarkOfDestiny: Link was born with the symbol of the Triforce on his left hand, marking him as a destined hero.
* ChickMagnet: Ladies love him across both games. [[StealthPun If you find Cuccos anywhere, their chicks will follow Link around.]] In the unofficial manga, he even has a pet Cucco chick, Piyoko. Link: ''literal'' ChickMagnet!
* TheChosenOne: The Hero chosen by the Triforce to save both lands.
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: Link cannot help but restore both lands.
* ClothesMakeTheLegend: He's wearing the iconic green hat and tunic like always.
* CoolSword: He only gets the [[InfinityPlusOneSword Master Sword]] in a linked game, though.
* CrazyPrepared: Has a weapon/item for every possible situation.
* DieChairDie: You can obtain a ring for destroying 100 different signs, which will invariably lead to this. Or maybe this version of Link just has an irrational hatred for signs. Lampshaded by a character in Subrosia ("the sign-loving Subrosian"), who gets pissed off and [[FissionMailed fakes giving you a Game Over]].
* ExperiencedProtagonist: Has already saved one land before the start of the games; namely, Hyrule back during the events of ''A Link to the Past''.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: To the point that he can call upon three of his animal friends [[PowerUpMount to help him out]]: Ricky (a BoxingKangaroo--[[KangarooPouchRide who carries Link in his pouch]]--with great jumping and climbing abilities, as well as the power to summon [[BlowYouAway tornadoes]] when his punches are [[ChargedAttack fully charged]]), Moosh (a [[{{Flight}} flying]] blue bear who can help Link cross chasms), and Dimitri (a Dodongo who can bite and eat enemies and helps Link traverse through aquatic areas, notably strong currents and up waterfalls).
* TheHero: Main protagonist and savior of two lands.
* HeroicMime: Except when he has a DialogueTree, Link doesn't talk.
* HeroicSpirit: As always he has the blessing of the Triforce of Courage, giving him indomitable courage and will.
* InterspeciesRomance: The Maku Tree wants to marry him when she grows up, he dates Rosa the Subrosian, and in the (unofficial) manga, his pet Cucco Piyoko admits to being in love with him.
* {{Keet}}: Cute and energetic.
* KidHero: This Link seems to be in his preteens, though not actually a kid.
* KleptomaniacHero: If it even vaguely looks useful and isn't nailed down, Link will nab it. If it ''is'' nailed down, he'll probably come back for it when he can pull out the nails.
* KnightInShiningArmor: Not actually, but the typical character type in practice: noble, upstanding, heroic, and incorruptible.
* MagicMusic: In ''Oracle of Ages'', which makes him [[TimeTravel travel through time]].
* MultipleChoicePast: Depending on the source, he is either the same Link from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'' and ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening'' or a completely different one. The manga adds a backstory that depicts him not as a traveling hero, but as a young boy trying to become a knight like his grandfather.
* NiceHat: Would he really be Link without it?
* OlderThanTheyLook: Considering that Bipin and Blossom's son grows up to adulthood within the span of both games, at least 14-20 years will have passed by the time the son grows up, and yet Link still looks like he's ten years old despite possibly being in his ''thirties'' by then. That said, the plot of both games does amount to the passage of time being messed up, so that might have something to do with this.
* OneManArmy: At least hundreds, more likely thousands, of dead monsters will be in your wake when the credits roll.
* PlotTailoredToTheParty: Each world is specifically constructed to allow Link to reach the next dungeon one at a time after retrieving an item from the last.
* RaisedByGrandparents: In the manga.
* RewardingVandalism: Link's primary source of income is smashing random objects. Especially pottery.
* StalkerWithoutACrush: Link has to do this at least twice to the Subrosians--the first time to find the portal into Subrosia, and the second to retrieve his Roc's Feather from some thieves.
* VagueAge: Oddly enough, this Link looked ''older'' in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast A Link to the Past]]'', in artwork for both the SNES original and GBA remake.
* YouAreTooLate: [[spoiler:Though he successfully saves the Oracles and stops Veran and Onox, they succeed in their respective parts of Twinrova's plan.]]

!!The Oracles


Din is the Oracle of Seasons, and shares the same name as the goddess of power. She's a main character in ''The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons'' and holds the four seasons in their balance. She's a famous dancer in Holodrum and possesses the Rod of Seasons, which holds a part of her powers.
* CannotSpitItOut: Another woman with a crush on Link that can't tell him.
* ChainedToARock: She's briefly subjected to this right after she gets captured, though it only lasts long enough to put her in her...
* CrystalPrison: She spends the majority of ''Seasons'' trapped in a crystal.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Red hair and red eyes.
* DamselInDistress: Your goal in the game is to free her from the evil general Onox.
* DarkSkinnedRedhead: She has dark skin and bright red hair. She may be part Gerudo, since the Triforce of Power (i.e. Din's piece) is generally associated with Ganondorf and the Gerudo.
* HeroesWantRedheads: It's a similar case as with [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Nabooru]] here: it's unclear if Link wants her, but she definitely wants ''him''. The feeling ''is'' mutual in the manga adaptation, though, to the point of full ShipTease.
* MacGuffinSuperPerson: Onox kidnaps her to seal her powers and kick off the plot.
* MagicWand: The Rod of Seasons.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Subverted. Some concept art depicts her with red eyes. However...
* SassyBlackWoman: She has unusually dark skin for a Hylian, which is the reason why some people theorize that she's part Gerudo.
* ShipTease: In the manga, she and Link clearly have a crush on each other.
* ThreeFacesOfEve: The Seductress; an outgoing dancer named for the goddess of power.
* WeatherControlMachine: The whole purpose of her existence. Enclose her in a crystal and watch the seasons go to hell.



Nayru is the Oracle of Ages, and shares the same name as the goddess of wisdom. She's a main character in ''The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages'' and has the power to jump through time. She's well known for her beautiful singing voice in the kingdom of Labrynna and wields the Harp of Ages, which holds a part of her powers.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: And for added effect, her clothes are primarily blue hues as well.
* DamselInDistress: She's kidnapped and possessed by Veran, who wants to abuse her powers. Though, unlike Din, Nayru [[spoiler:is actually saved a few dungeons before the Final Boss fight, and aids Link by teaching him a song for the Harp of Ages that unlocks its full potential]].
* DemonicPossession: By Veran.
* {{Expy}}: While many of the female characters in the ''Oracle'' games have sprites similar to Marin of ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening Link's Awakening]]'', given their use of the same graphic style, Nayru is especially similar, being a singer and harpist.
* HarpOfFemininity: Delicate, graceful and known as a singer and harpist.
* MacGuffinSuperPerson: Her capture kickstarts the plot and her powers are pivotal to Veran's plans.
* MagicMusic: Her harp holds a part of her powers
* PrincessClassic: Even though she's not a princess, she displays almost more characteristics of this trope than Princess Zelda herself.
* RapunzelHair: Her hair goes down to her knees.
* ThreeFacesOfEve: The Wife; a gentle singer named for the goddess of wisdom.
* TimeTravel: Her powers and her {{harp|OfFemininity}}.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: And blue eyes.



Farore is the Oracle of Secrets, and shares the same name as the goddess of courage. She's a side character in both of the ''Oracle'' games. She resides in the Maku Tree that connects Labrynna and Holodrum, and Link must bring a secret he finds in one region to her so he can use new equipment in the other.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Green hair and green eyes.
* DemotedToExtra: There were initially going to be three ''Oracle'' games with her playing a large role in the third, but the developers decided it'd be too complicated to link three games so they made her the Oracle of Secrets instead.
* GiantPoofySleeves: They're almost as big as her head.
* MythologyGag: Din, Nayru, and Farore all make an appearance in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheMinishCap The Minish Cap]]'', where her charm is a combined version of Din and Nayru's at lower potency. Also, it's only possible to aid two of them; the presumed intent of the developers is to leave Farore alone as before. Her trophy also mentions how much it bothers her that people take advantage of her kind nature; her secret linking gives Link great power and lets him fight the TrueFinalBoss, but she gets no exposure or thanks for it.
* OdangoHair: Is she trying to compete with [[Anime/OjamajoDoremi Doremi]]?! Seriously...
* ThreeFacesOfEve: The Child; a helpful young intellectual named for the goddess of courage.
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: Farore seems to be the youngest out of the three Oracles, but she seems to be the most knowledgeable. The one who's carrying a GreatBigBookOfEverything around and enables you to fight the real BigBad, simply by collecting secrets.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: She has bright green hair.




The main villain of ''Oracle of Seasons,'' he is known as the General of Darkness. He kidnaps Din and throws the seasons in Holodrum into chaos, spreading destruction through the land. He is revealed to be TheDragon to Twinrova.
* AttackItsWeakPoint: In his dragon form, the crystal on his forehead is his weak spot.
* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: His dragon form is easily the largest boss in either game, taking up the entire screen and tapering off into darkness.
* BlackKnight: Wears a large suit of black and golden armor.
* BlowYouAway: He summons a tornado to kidnap Din and attacks you with them during the second phase of his boss fight.
* BreathWeapon: His dragon form breaths two types of fireballs, red ones that just fly straight at Link, and blue ones that stay the on the ground for a few seconds, limiting his movements.
* CardCarryingVillain: "[[BossSubtitles General of Darkness]]."
* CoDragons: With Veran, as one of the two villains who's helping Twinrova. Humorously, he's also ''literally'' a dragon.
* CurbStompBattle: His first two encounters with Link in the manga end with him delivering these to him.
* DragonsAreDemonic: His OneWingedAngel form is a giant black dragon.
* DubNameChange: "Gorgon" in Japan.
* EpicFlail: He attacks with one, and the ball part is bigger than Link is.
* FinalBoss: Of a standalone ''Oracle of Seasons'' playthrough.
* FlatCharacter: They might both be {{Filler Villain}}s, but Veran has a couple of other scenes during the game to flesh out her motives and personality, and she has a more complex plan to execute. Onox just shows up, kidnaps Din and destroys the Temple of Seasons, and then doesn't reappear until it's time for the final battle.
* GenericDoomsdayVillain: Since he only has three scenes over the course of the game, he doesn't get time to display much personality besides being evil and [[UnderestimatingBadassery not taking Link for a threat]].
* HumanShield: He uses Din as one during the boss battle. [[spoiler:Use the Rod of Seasons to gently knock her away to safety.]]
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: He actually becomes a dragon for the last phase of the fight with him.
* LargeAndInCharge: Definitely one of the more physically imposing villains Link's had to face.
* OfficerAndAGentleman: He claims to be this in the official manga, but it hardly shows.
* OneWingedAngel: Shifts into a dragon for the final battle.
* OrcusOnHisThrone: He doesn't do anything after the prologue ends. It's also justified: as he's already imprisoned Din and sunken the Temple of Seasons, he doesn't ''need'' to do anything else to fulfill his part of Twinrova's plan, the world will tear itself apart just fine. Though it also raises the question of why he lets Link go and collect the Essences of Nature and come to his castle; Veran at least has the excuse of being busy manipulating Ambi and constructing the Black Tower.
* RougeAnglesOfSatin: Twinrova calls him "Knox" twice in ''Ages''.
* SequentialBoss: When confronted at the end of ''Seasons'', Link must face down two forms of Onox; his TinTyrant form with the ball and chain, and then his dragon form in 2D. In a linked game continued from ''Ages'', Onox's two forms are the start of the ending boss gauntlet, with Twinrova and Ganon following the general shortly afterwards.
* ShoutOut: The battle with his OneWingedAngel form is remarkably similar to Sigma's final form in the [[VideoGame/MegaManX1 first]] ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' game -- he floats in the background and snaps his claws down at you, you ride them up high enough to strike the gem on his head. The game was developed by Creator/{{Capcom}}, so it's not surprising they'd throw in some kind of reference such as this.
* StalkerWithACrush: The manga shows him as being this for Din.
* TacticalSuicideBoss: If he didn't do his attack where he lowers his hands to crush Link, he'd be impossible because Link wouldn't be able to reach his weak point.
* TinTyrant: Covered in thick armor from head to toe.
* WalkingWasteland: Described as such in the manga, where the land dies under his feet.
* WeatherControlMachine: He throws the seasons out of whack when he imprisons Din.



The main villain of ''Oracle of Ages'', known as the Sorceress of Shadows. She possesses Nayru and goes back in time to screw up the history of Labrynna, spreading sorrow through the people. She is revealed to be TheDragon to Twinrova.
* AdaptationalWimp: In the game, Veran has a pool of magical powers at her disposal no matter what host she has. In the manga, she's limited to whatever abilities her hosts normally have. She's forced to flee from Ralph after possessing [[{{Muggles}} Ambi]], instead of curb-stomping him as she did in the game.
* BareYourMidriff: Her outfit oddly leaves her midriff bared.
* BatmanGambit: [[spoiler:Her method to light the Flame of Sorrow is to create an endless day and make the people of Labrynna labor for actual days on end to complete the Black Tower, creating a symbol of oppression that towers over the land and fills them with sadness.]]
* BeastWithAHumanFace: Her three OneWingedAngel forms are these. They are a beetle with her head which she can retract in, a bee which has her face on top of its forehead, and a spider which has her face on its underside.
* BerserkButton: In the manga, the spider form is her true form. She's repulsed by it and is furious at Link for forcing her to take her true form.
* BigBadDuumvirate: A dragon to Twinrova and by extension Ganon/Ganondorf, but by far the most visible of the main antagonists in these two games.
* CardCarryingVillain: "[[BossSubtitles Sorceress of Shadows.]]" She happens to have a bit more of her character developed than Onox, though.
* CleavageWindow: Her outfit bares the top of her breasts.
* CoDragons: With Onox, she's a servant of Twinrova.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Characters under her control have a blue skin tone.
* DemonicPossession: She prefers to use other people's bodies rather than her own, and does this a lot. She possesses Impa at the start of the game so she can get close enough to possess Nayru, and later [[spoiler:makes Queen Ambi her host after Nayru is freed]]. She ''tries'' to use it against Link after the first phase of her final battle with him, but he jumps out of the way. She also has a curious comment in the game about having possessed Ralph at one point, which only happens in the manga.
* TheDragon: Veran pretends to be this to Queen Ambi while possessing Nayru, but...
* DragonInChief: It's obvious Veran is running the show, creating an endless day to get the Black Tower built.
* EvilChancellor: As the possessed Nayru, she becomes Ambi's right-hand woman and helps corrupt her to evil. [[spoiler: After 6 dungeons, you fight Veran as possessed Nayru and break her control over the Oracle, prompting Veran to possess Ambi and "become" the Queen herself; she retains control of Ambi up to the ending boss battles to close the game.]]
* EvilSorcerer: In contrast to Onox's brute physical power, Veran relies on magic to fight.
* EvilTowerOfOminousness: The Black Tower, which she needs to complete as part of her plan.
* FairySexy: A sign of Veran's [[VainSorceress vanity]], she deems her "true" form to be "hideous." Said form retains her stunning facial features and curvaceous figure while, in accordance with the trope, decking Veran out in clothes even skimpier than her already mildly {{Stripperiffic}} dress. The only other characteristics that distinguish Veran from the rest of her fairy kin are more prominent head antennae, [[GoodWingsEvilWings sharper wings]], and what is either [[SlasherSmile a lurid grin]] or {{fangs|AreEvil}}, all of which are, at worst, minor blemishes on her physical beauty.
* FinalBoss: Of a standalone ''Oracle of Ages'' playthrough.
* FinalBossPreview: Link fights her after the sixth dungeon, and she fights similarly to how she fights at the end of the game.
* FlunkyBoss: The second stage of the last battle with her brings in classic [[EvilKnockoff Dark Links]] [[FearfulSymmetry that mimic your movement]].
* GiantSpider: One of her final forms, and the least humanoid of them all, is a giant spider.
* TheHeavy: While she and Onox are dragons to Twinrova, Veran is the most active of the primary villains and pushes the plot more in her quest to light the Flame of Sorrow to help revive Ganon/Ganondorf.
* HotWitch: She's not at all bad to look at, even if she is evil.
* ImpossibleHourglassFigure: There is no way those hips are natural.
* JustBetweenYouAndMe: A meta-instance -- the player sees that Veran dislikes Mystery Seeds in a scene that Link cannot possibly have witnessed himself. However, it's a hint to how to defeat her.
* KryptoniteFactor: Mystery Seeds disgust her and temporarily incapacitate her physical host.
* LadyOfBlackMagic: Mainly seen in her first two forms.
* OneWingedAngel: Her true appearance is that of a fairy. Veran has an additional ''three'' she doesn't want anyone to see (bee, beetle, and spider).
* OurFairiesAreDifferent: Her true form is a demonic-looking fairy who {{summon|Magic}}s four [[EvilKnockoff Dark Links]] [[FlunkyBoss to aid her in battle]] and pelts you with magical fireballs.
* PeekABangs: Her hair covers her right eye.
* PimpedOutDress: Complete with GiantPoofySleeves.
* PowerParasite: She took Nayru's body to gain her time-manipulation abilities.
* RecurringBoss: Unlike Onox, Veran is fought a few times throughout the game, including as possessed Nayru, then as [[spoiler:possessed Ambi]] to start the FinalBoss fight.
* SequentialBoss: Veran has three forms to defeat (a [[spoiler:possessed Queen Ambi]], then a fairy form with Dark Link doppelgangers mimicking your movement, then her three creature forms) in sequence as the last fight in ''Ages''. In an ''Ages'' game continued from ''Seasons'', these are the first three stages of a closing boss gauntlet, with Twinrova and Ganon following shortly afterward.
* SquishyWizard: She's relatively defenseless when not possessing someone, going down in only three sword strikes. Of course, [[OneWingedAngel this isn't actually her true form]].
* TheStarscream: [[spoiler:Eventually, Nayru is freed and Veran possesses Ambi, moving on with the Black Tower construction without Nayru and Ambi, which leads to the lighting of the Flame of Sorrow and the near-revival of Ganon.]]
* TerminatorTwosome: Veran goes back in time to create chaos through history. Link follows her to stop her.
* VainSorceress: Shades of it. [[PowerUpgradingDeformation She considers her final set of forms ugly]] and curses Link for [[IAmNotLeftHanded forcing her to use them]].
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: In the final phase of your battle with Veran, the sorceress continuously shifts back and forth between forms.
* XanatosSpeedChess: When Link [[spoiler:successfully frees Nayru from her control, Veran possesses Queen Ambi instead]]. Though she no longer has free control over time, she's still in the past and in control of Labrynna, so her work on the Black Tower (and thus her plan to light the Flame of Sorrow) can continue just fine.

[[folder: Vire]]


A red, bat-like demon that serves both Onox and Veran.
* AdaptationalWimp: He was never particularly tough in the game, but he at least stood his ground and fought Link. In the manga, he simply serves as a scout.
* BreathWeapon: He can fire bolts of energy from his mouth.
* TheDragon: To both Onox and Veran.
* FragileSpeedster: He can fly through the air and can quickly dash out of Link's sword swings, but has minimal defenses.
* KansaiRegionalAccent: He uses a lot of Kansai-specific phrases and words in his Japanese speech texts.
* MesACrowd: He can split himself into two smaller creatures.



The twin sisters Koume and Kotake, who were Ganon's adoptive parents in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'', are the true villains of the ''Oracle'' games. They send Onox and Veran to Holodrum and Labrynna to create destruction and sorrow as part of a plan to resurrect the Demon King, Ganon.
* BigBadDuumvirate: As they are one entity in two forms, they are technically this with each other.
* ColorCodedElements: In their fused form, Twinrova will randomly switch between using the elements of [[PlayingWithFire fire]] (red) and [[AnIcePerson ice]] (blue), with her appearance changing accordingly. (These colors correspond, respectively, to Koume and Kotake, who are predominantly colored as such.) Interestingly, when they first merge together or when damaged enough by Link to be stunned, Twinrova is an even split of both; her left half is icy and her right is fire.
* CrystalBall: They use one to spy on Link.
* DualBoss: You fight both witches at the same time; like in ''Ocarina'', they eventually fuse together.
* EvilMatriarch: Although unlike most examples of this trope, they really ''do'' care about their adopted son, [[spoiler:enough to sacrifice their own lives to bring him BackFromTheDead.]]
* FinalBoss: The first stage of the TrueFinalBoss fight that can only be encountered at the end of a linked game; they and then Ganon are fought shortly after Onox/Veran are dealt with.
* FusionDance: The two merge together to fight Link after fighting him as two separate beings.
* HijackedByGanon: They do this to Onox and Veran.
* LargeAndInCharge: If the sprites are any indication, Twinrova is roughly the size of Onox, matching her [[StatuesqueStunner towering depiction]] in ''Ocarina''.
* MamaBear: Their entire plan is to revive their son, Ganon, to the point of [[spoiler:''sacrificing themselves'' to resurrect Ganon when the ritual went awry]].
* TheManBehindTheMan: They're behind both Onox and Veran.
* NoblewomansLaugh: The sisters let out an "Oh hoh hoh!" after Link defeats them individually.
* SenselessSacrifice: [[spoiler:Their sacrifice does bring Ganon back, but only as a raging, mindless Ganon, rather than as the King of Evil.]]
* SequentialBoss: Part of the chain of last boss enemies in the linked game, with only Ganon behind them. Just like in ''Ocarina of Time'', you fight the two as separate enemies, then as a combined Twinrova.
* SlasherSmile: One of them bears one in the ending of the first game played in a set, which is pretty impressive for someone who hardly has a full set of teeth.
* TennisBoss: Your objective is to bat their projectiles back at the opposite sister, since their elemental powers cancel each other out.
* TheManBehindTheMan: They're the ones behind Onox and Veran's schemes.
* {{Wicked Witch}}es: Twinrova ''could'' be considered a HotWitch, though.
* UnexplainedRecovery: WordOfGod stated that the ''Oracle'' games take place in the event that Ganon managed to kill Link during their final battle in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'', with everything up to that event being the same as in the Adult Timeline, so how Twinrova managed to return from the dead is unknown. Likewise, assuming they are in fact still dead, their [[spoiler:sacrificing themselves to ensure Ganon's resurrection]] makes them eligible for the DeaderThanDead trope.



The GreaterScopeVillain of both games. At the start of the games he's dead, but Twinrova is planning to resurrect him the Dark Rites that Onox and Veran are aiding them with. The official timeline establishes this Ganon is the incarnation from ''A Link to the Past''.
* AlmightyIdiot: [[spoiler:He was revived to be as powerful as he ever was, but with none of his intelligence from before.]]
* AxCrazy: He has no personality but to attack and destroy things.
* BackFromTheDead: Twinrova planned to resurrect him after he had died.
* BadassCape: He wears a large cloak.
* CameBackWrong: [[spoiler:Thanks to an improper sacrifice, he's devoid of any intelligence.]]
* DyingAsYourself: It is implied [[spoiler:from Ganon's final words after being vanquished by Link ("Gwoh hoh hoh! I am Ganon... The Evil King...") that he at least regained some clarity upon the final blow.]]
* FinalBoss: Of both games in the linked scenario; he and Twinrova are encountered in a bonus area after Onox/Veran are killed at the end of the second game.
* FullBoarAction: He's a humanoid pig-man.
* GreaterScopeVillain: He's not directly involved in the plot, staying a dead body for most of the game. The real {{Big Bad}}s of the linked game are his surrogate mothers, and the plot is driven by them trying to resurrect him.
* InterfaceScrew: One ability of Ganon's is to warp Link to an AmazingTechnicolorBattlefield where the player's controls are reversed.
* KryptoniteFactor: An unusual case. The Master Sword pieces his defenses to damage him, without it Link must use a SpinAttack. However, this is not because of [[HolyBurnsEvil any story trait attributed to the Master Sword]], but due to his weaker swords not having the power to damage Ganon. If Link wears a ring to boost his sword damage, he can hurt Ganon with normal sword attacks.
* OmnicidalManiac: "''Destroy...all...Kill ALL!!!''"
* ProngsOfPoseidon: Wields his trident as usual.
* ShouldersOfDoom: Decked out with SpikesOfVillainy.
* TeleportSpam: Though departing from the manner he used it in ''A Link to the Past'', the player can't see where he's going to show up when he teleports till right before he reappears.
* TrueFinalBoss: In a linked game, after the game's actual villain is slain, Ganon and Twinrova are fought, with Ganon as the last enemy.
* VillainDecay: Thanks to Link [[spoiler: thwarting the ritual sacrifice of Zelda and forcing Twinrova to sacrifice themselves instead, [[CameBackWrong Ganon returns as a mindless beast]] instead of the cunning King of Evil that he was in ''A Link to the Past'' and ''Ocarina of Time'']]. Not only that, but [[BadassDecay he is also susceptible to any sword attacks]] whereas in ''A Link to the Past'', Ganon could only be stunned by the Master Sword and needed four Silver Arrows to be killed.
* WalkingSpoiler: Twinrova's plan to revive him is a major story reveal.

!!Other Characters

[[folder:The Maku Trees]]

The Maku Trees of Holodrum and Labrynna are the guardian spirits of the land. When the title oracle is kidnapped, they task Link to retrieve the Essences of Nature/Time that can stop Onox and Veran. The Maku Tree of Holodrum is male, the one of Labrynna is female.
* TheDitz: The ''Ages'' one certainly is.
* {{Exp|y}}ies: Of ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'''s Great Deku Tree. The male one seen in ''Seasons'' shares the most in common with his predecessor.
* ExpressiveAccessory: The ''Ages'' Maku Tree's flower droops when she's sad.
* FisherKing: Inverted, their welfare is directly linked to the spiritual state of the land they reside in.
* InterspeciesRomance: The Maku Tree of Labrynna develops a crush on Link after he saves her in the past.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: The Maku Tree of Labrynna has damaged memories as a result of Veran's meddling in time. Saving Essences of Time slowly restores the damage and allows her to remember things.
* NatureSpirit: Living trees that protect the land.

[[folder:Ricky, Dimitri, and Moosh]]

Ricky, Dimitri and Moosh are Link's animal companions who help him cross impossible terrain. Ricky is a BoxingKangaroo that can jump up cliffs and over pits, Dimitri is a red dodongo that can swim across seas, and Moosh is a winged bear that can fly over large gaps.
* AerithAndBob: Ricky, Dimitri, and... Moosh?
* AnimalGenderBender: Ricky is a male kangaroo with a ''pouch''.
* BigEater: Moosh. You get him by helping him get bananas in ''Oracle of Seasons''.
** Dimitri qualifies as well; he can eat ''a lot'' of things and never seems to get full.
* BlowYouAway: Ricky can [[ChargedAttack charge up]] a wind-up punch that launches a tornado across the screen.
* ColourCodedForYourConvenience: Ricky is yellow, Dimitri is red, and Moosh is blue.
* CowardlyLion: Despite being a Dodongo, Dimitri is pretty timid.
* DeclarationOfProtection: In the manga, Ricky makes this while [[KangarooPouchRide keeping Link in his pouch]] during a large battle.
* ExtremeOmnivore: Dimitri "eats almost anything, ''even monsters''".
* GentleGiant: Despite being a large flying bear, Moosh is very meek and doesn't like to fight.
* GiantFlyer: Moosh is a large bear with tiny wings.
* InterspeciesRomance: Ricky supposedly has a crush on Link in the manga.
* NotAlwaysEvil: Dimitri is the lone heroic Dodongo in the series' history.
* PowerUpMount: Link rides them to reach areas he can't normally.
* SchrodingersPlayerCharacter: Which partner becomes your "Main" is determined by whose flute you acquire first.
** In ''Seasons'', Ricky is the default partner, should Link obtain Moosh's or Dimitri's flutes before returning Ricky's boxing gloves to him they'll appear earlier than they normally would.
** In ''Ages'', you meet with all three of them before finding Moosh (the default) in the Fairies' Woods, if you got another friend's flute first, they'll be in the woods instead of Moosh.
* TalkingAnimal: All of them.



Impa is Zelda's nursemaid. In the prologues of both games, she's on her way to try and get the titular Oracle to safety, but fails to do so before the villain finds them.
* DemonicPossession: Veran does it to her before the start of ''Oracle of Ages''.
* DependingOnTheArtist: In this incarnation, she is presented as a heavily overweight middle-aged woman, in extra contrast to [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaI her previous]] [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime two incarnations]].
* LegacyCharacter: One who actually looks different in each of her incarnations, as noted above.
* MarshmellowHell: In the ''Seasons'' manga, Impa frequently hugs Link into her bosom, nearly suffocating the poor lad.
* [[MrExposition Ms. Exposition]]: She exists to tell Link what to do at the start of each game.
* StoutStrength: As strong as she is large in the manga, Impa can lift a full grown cow over her head.

[[folder:Queen Ambi]]


Ambi is the Queen of Labrynna in the distant past when it still had a monarchy. She's come under the influence of Veran in Nayru's body, and is building Ambi's Tower at the detriment to the stability of her village.
* BigOlEyebrows: Forked eyebrows. They run in the family.
* DemonicPossession: [[spoiler:After Link saves Nayru from Veran, Veran takes over Ambi instead.]]
* EvilTowerOfOminousness: She's building the Black Tower as a beacon to guide her lost lover home from sea.
* FinalBoss: The [[spoiler: possessed Queen Ambi]] is the first phase of the final Veran fight in ''Ages''.
* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen: Under Veran's influence she became much more overbearing and demanding. [[spoiler:Once Veran possesses her, she goes for full evil.]]
* GrandfatherParadox: She's Ralph's ancestor, thus presenting Link with the dilemma of [[RetGone Retgonning]] Ralph from existence if Ambi is killed.
* TheHighQueen: In contrast to the above trope, without Veran influencing her the people of Labrynna loved her and she was a kind and gentle queen for them.
* SequentialBoss: In an ''Ages'' game linked from ''Seasons'', the [[spoiler: possessed Queen Ambi]] is the first stage in a boss gauntlet that will eventually end in a battle with Twinrova and then Ganon.
* ShouldersOfDoom: She has massive spiked shoulers.
* StarCrossedLovers: Her lover was a seaman and could not stay with her, and she's never stopped loving him after he's been gone for years. [[spoiler:In a linked game where ''Ages'' was played first, they finally reunite.]]
* UpperClassTwit: Gets a case of this in ''Seasons'' when she visits the Sunken City and wonders if she should make her palace "sunken" too.
* WalkingTheEarth: In a linked game with ''Ages'' completed first, Nayru sends her on a journey through time to see the world, and she ends up in Holodrum to cameo repeatedly in ''Seasons''.



An obnoxious young man first seen as Nayru's bodyguard. When the Oracle is kidnapped by Veran, he goes tearing off after them, [[CatchPhrase screaming for Nayru]]. He occasionally shows up to give Link hints, usually nagging him for stopping to help others instead of rescuing Nayru.
* AerithAndBob: Nayru and Ralph.
* BigOlEyebrows: Forked eyebrows. They run in the family.
* {{Bishonen}}: Apparently androgynous enough to give at least one NPC ViewerGenderConfusion.
--> "I couldn't tell if it was a man or a woman! It was scary!"
* CampStraight: He's pretty fabulous in his flares with purple trim, flippy hair, hip-accenting pose, and (look closely) ''green nail polish''. But he spends most of his screen time worrying about Nayru, and the manga makes it clear that his interest in her is romantic.
* CatchPhrase: "[[RunningGag NAYRU!!!]]"
* CharacterDevelopment: He comes to realize that he needs to help all of Labrynna, not just Nayru. He also [[FriendlyRivalry warms up to Link]], and in the end credits is taking swordsmanship lessons from him.
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: The game touches on this a little, but the manga emphasizes this a great deal.
* {{Expy}}: Of [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Mido]]. Other than their similar appearances, they also have similar behaviors. They are both overconfident minor characters who antagonize Link. Design wise, his sprite is similar to Richard from ''Link's Awakening''.
* FieryRedhead: He's passionate and eager to save Nayru.
* GrandfatherParadox : As Queen Ambi's eventual descendant, he would cease to exist if Ambi was harmed or killed. During his confrontation with Veran (possessing Ambi's body), he acknowledges this and resolves to fight her anyway. [[CurbStompBattle He then gets crushed.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:Just narrowly subverted. Although he acknowledges that killing Ambi, his ancestor, will [[GrandfatherParadox result in his existence being erased]], he decides to go through with it anyway just to save Nayru and Labrynna from Veran. Veran-as-Ambi proceeds to kick his ass and leave him incapacitated, but alive.]]
* HotBlooded: He's very energetic and loud.
* PeekABangs: His hair partially covers his eyes.
* TheReveal: He is the descendant of Queen Ambi, and presumably the present-day ruler of Labrynna.
* TheRival: He ''finally'' [[FriendlyRivalry mellows out at the end]], though.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: [[CurbStompBattle Well, at least he tried.]]
* SignificantGreenEyedRedhead: The official art shows him with green eyes.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Official artwork shows that he has the same type of UnusualEyebrows that Ambi has.
* TimeTravel: Follows Veran back in time after she kidnaps Nayru.
* [[ChildhoodMarriagePromise Victorious Childhood Friend]]: The manga implies that he wants to be this to "my beloved Nayru."



Found in ''Oracle of Seasons'', she's trying to care for a lot of Cuccos but doesn't know what she's doing. She plays a part in the game's trading sequence.
* {{Expy}}: Of Malon from ''Ocarina of Time'', and by extension Marin from ''Link's Awakening''.
* MissingMom: As usual, her mom is nowhere in sight.
* RaceLift: Is a "plain" human rather than a pointy-eared Hylian this time.
* UglyGuysHotDaughter: As always, Talon is not quite in the same realm of physical appeal as Malon.



Malon's father, he went adventuring up Mt. Cucco and fell asleep. He plays a part in the game's trading sequence.
* BumblingDad: Malon's lazy and clumsy dad.
* {{Expy}}: Of Tarin from ''Link's Awakening'' and by extension, of [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]]. It seems he gets more Mario like with each successive game. In ''Link's Awakening'', Tarin's sprite looked a lot like Mario, but his character art was somewhat different. In ''Ocarina of Time'' he has the blue overalls and red shirt. In ''Oracle of Seasons'', he has Mario's "M" logo on his hat, Mario's exact mustache, sideburns, nose, ears, and eyes. He even gives Link a mushroom as part of the [[ChainOfDeals trading sequence]].
* HeavySleeper: A FetchQuest involves finding an item to wake him up.
* LazyBum: He's still not very motivated.
* PieEyed: Unusually for an otherwise anime-styled game.
* RaceLift: Is a "plain" human rather than a pointy-eared Hylian is this game.
* {{Sleepyhead}}: Frequently found napping during the day.

The goofy-looking man who rides around by tying a balloon to his belt, floating in place. He appears in ''Oracle of Ages'' where he sells Link a sea chart needed to sail to Tokay Island.
* CatchPhrase: "Kooloo-Limpah!"
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: He's a 35-year-old ballooning map salesman who thinks he's a fairy.
* MythologyGag: [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask As usual]], he's selling maps.
* {{Gonk}}: Also as usual, he's rather hideous-looking.



Granddaughter of Syrup, the witch who sells you potions in the previous games. She appears after you defeat a certain number of enemies, triggering a sort of mini-game where you bump into each other and each drop some of your items. You then have to race with her to collect each other's items. She often drops rings, Gasha seeds, and even potions and a piece of heart.
* AscendedExtra: She plays a large role in the ''Oracle of Seasons'' manga, even taking part in the final battle.
* CuteWitch: Isn't she just?
* FlyingSaucer: In a linked game, once she's stolen a certain amount of Rupees from Link, she ends up ditching her broom for a shiny new UFO.
* FreudianExcuse: See [[WellDoneSonGuy "Well Done, Daughter!" Gal]] below.
* HeelFaceTurn: In the manga adaptation, she originally only helps Link so she can get the Rod of Seasons for herself, but eventually switches over to his side for real.
* {{Jerkass}}: In the game; in the manga adaptation, she starts out as a JerkWithAHeartOfJerk and eventually evolves into a JerkWithAHeartOfGold.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Your main cue to her presence.
* OrwellianRetcon: In the UsefulNotes/GameBoyAdvance port of ''A Link to the Past'', she replaces the generic witch's assistant from the original game.
* TimeTravel: She can occasionally be found in the past in ''Ages'', apparently due to unwittingly flying through a time portal.
* [[WellDoneSonGuy "Well Done, Daughter!" Gal]]: It's implied by something she says after giving her the Touching Book that she just wants Syrup to appreciate her.

[[folder:Bipin & Blossom]]


A local family in town that asks you to name their newborn son. The son grows up differently based on how you interact with the family during the game.
* DesperatelyLookingForAPurposeInLife: If given everything he needs in excess as a child, the son grows up into a slacker who "idles his time away."
* FloralThemeNaming: Blossom.
* HelloInsertNameHere: A somewhat uncommon non-player character example.
* HeroesPreferSwords: If raised to be a warrior, his WeaponOfChoice is naturally a sword.
* LastMinuteBabyNaming: The premise of your meeting them.
* LikeFatherLikeSon: It's possible for the baby to grow up into a Gasha Seed farmer like his old man.
* MagicMusic: If the baby grows up to be a singer, his music will heal you whenever you talk to him.
* NiceHat: Bipin's hat is almost as big as he is in its in-game sprite. His son will also don the same type of hat if he grows up to be either a farmer or a warrior.
* InTheBlood: Bipin's ancestor Pipin, is also a Gasha Seed farmer. The son can also become one if Link raises him that way.
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: Yes, you can name the baby something dirty, and the parents will go with it.

Owns a jewelry store in both Horon Village and Lynna City. He appraises and stores rings for Link throughout the game.
* NiceHat: Or rather, Nice Turban.
* PowerCrystal: Interestingly enough, rings avert this. Rings are made from magical ''seeds'', not gemstones.
* RingOfPower: What Vasu's business specializes in.
* WeBuyAnything: Even though it probably isn't always in his best interest to do so, Vasu will buy ''any'' ring you appraise that you already own for 10 more Rupees than you paid to appraise it.



A female Subrosian "pop-star" who is distinguishable by the huge ribbon she wears. The key she carries can open any lock; a pity she doesn't follow you out of Subrosia.
* InTheHood: Like other Subrosians, she remains cloaked and hooded at all times.
* InformedAttractiveness: From a human perspective, the only thing that makes her look any different from the other Subrosians is [[TertiarySexualCharacteristics her ribbon and sprite color]], but she is apparently very desirable among members of her own race. Or maybe the Ribbon itself is the reason she's considered so attractive.
* InterspeciesRomance: Goes out on a date with Link when he gives her a new ribbon.
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tDGTdPTNyLU "A Date With Rosa."]]
* HairDecorations: A ''massive'' ribbon.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Like all Subrosians, she's much shorter than Link, though her ribbon sort of makes her taller than most.
* SkeletonKey: The key she carries around opens any door. "Celebrities get the best toys."
* ValleyGirl: Speaks like this in the English version. "Um, I like, lost something."

[[folder:Princess Zelda]]


The Princess of Hyrule, she sends Link to Labrynna and Holodrum to aid the endangered oracles. The joined game reveals that the true aim of Koume and Kotake is to sacrifice her in order to resurrect Ganondorf. She is apparently the same princess from ''A Link to the Past''.
* DamselInDistress if you linked your game, then she'll play this role twice. First she's captured by Vire, and secondly by Twinrova.
* DemotedToExtra: Kind of. She's really only seen in the joined game, although the manga indicates that she's the one who sends Link to the aid of Din and Nayru.
* {{Expy}}: Her sprite is similar to [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening Marin's]], which makes sense, as Marin was described as strongly resembling Zelda.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Still the princess with IncorruptiblePurePureness we know and love. [[HairColorDissonance More of a]] [[HeroesWantRedheads strawberry blonde]] this time around, though.
* HeroesWantRedheads: She's got red hair in this incarnation, and the hearts that erupt from Link after her SmoochOfVictory would suggest that this is the case.
* HumanSacrifice: What she's intended to be, but Link saves her.
* ImpliedLoveInterest: Again, as suggested by the SmoochOfVictory.
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: The fact that she has this is the reason she'll make an ideal sacrifice.
* SmoochOfVictory: She gives one to Link when the joined game is won.
* {{The Wise Prince}}ss: The manga gives her this role.
