Do you really want to read a page entirely dedicated to Zelda memes?
->[[ButThouMust Of course!]]
%%PLEASE, REMEMBER: Memes that don't explain where they came from will be deleted. Even if you think it's self explanatory, there are people who will not get it. There is no such thing as a universal meme.
!!Please add entries in the following format:
* The meme. [=[[=]labelnote:Explanation[=]]=]The explanation behind the meme, if necessary.[=[[/=]labelnote[=]]=] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Like this.[[/labelnote]]
** Further mutations and successor memes, if any.
!!!General series memes
* [[ItemGet DUH-NUH-NUH-NAAAAAAAAAAA]] [[labelnote:Explanation]][[ The series' iconic]] ItemGet jingle.[[/labelnote]]
** DUH-nuh-nuh-nuh-NUH-nuh-nuh-NAAAA [[labelnote:Explanation]][[ The series' iconic]] "puzzle solved" jingle.[[/labelnote]]
* It's [[FairyCompanion Tingle]]! [[AmericansHateTingle Get the angry mob ready!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The Tingle character is seen as crude, horrible to look at, acts like a ManChild, and is simply hated by the Western audience overall. However, Japanese gamers love Tingle. This is why the AmericansHateTingle trope exists. Or, at least, why it has its name.[[/labelnote]]
* [[ Newfags can't triforce.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]A Website/FourChan meme referencing the Triforce of Power, Wisdom, and Courage, a recurring theme throughout the series. Due to the formatting used on the site, getting three triangle characters to display as a Triforce symbol takes at least a basic understanding of using HTML character codes, which most new users don't have.[[/labelnote]]
* Link hates pots. [[labelnote:Explanation]]In nearly every game, Link [[RewardingVandalism can smash pots or jars to retrieve what's inside]], usually recovery hearts or rupees. As a result, it's common in the fandom to portray Link and his reincarnations as having an irrational hatred for pottery or having some other sort of compulsion to destroy every pot he sees.[[/labelnote]]

* Various quotes, oddly worded at best and [[BlindIdiotTranslation downright mangled and cryptic]] at worst, including:
** "It's dangerous to go alone! Take this." [[labelnote:Explanation]]Said by the old man who gives you your first sword.[[/labelnote]]
** "Dodongo dislikes smoke." [[labelnote:Explanation]]Said by the old man in a dungeon. He's trying to tell you to [[FeedItABomb feed Dodongo a bomb]] or to blind it with the bomb's smoke.[[/labelnote]]
** "Grumble, grumble..." [[labelnote:Explanation]]A monster says this, [[GuideDangIt not getting across that you're supposed to give him food]]. Many English-speaking fans assume that it's supposed to be a growling stomach, but that's not what the Japanese text shows.[[/labelnote]]
** "It's a secret to everybody."[[labelnote:Explanation]]Said by the moblins hiding in caves who give you money. Why do they give you money? [[EpilepticTrees Who knows?]] Maybe they're rebelling against Ganon and trying to help you on your quest. [[Webcomic/BrawlInTheFamily Maybe they're actually bribing you to keep a secret.]][[/labelnote]]
** "Let's play money making game." [[labelnote:Explanation]]A NPC introduces a BettingMiniGame whose odds happen to be more than a little unfavorable to the player.[[/labelnote]]

* I am Error. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Bizarre introduction by an unfortunately-named NPC. He actually has minor relevance to the plot. And it isn't {{Engrish}}; he was called Error as a programming in-joke, since someone else's name was 'Bug' but badly Romanised.[[/labelnote]]
* If all else fails [[PlayingWithFire use fire]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Useful hint.[[/labelnote]]
** You have water come to my house. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Characters tend to help you if you bring them useful items. Some items are not so useful.[[/labelnote]]
* [[GameOverMan GAME OVER - RETURN OF GANON]][[labelnote:Explanation]]What the GameOver screen says after you run out of lives, followed by a picture of a shadowy Ganon revived and laughing. [[NintendoHard You will be seeing this a lot.]][[/labelnote]]

* I love the Power Glove, it's so bad.[[labelnote:Explanation]]A joint meme with, and referencing Film/TheWizard, with an item [[NamesTheSame that happens to share its name]] with the NES accessory made by Creator/{{Mattel}} (Link later finds an upgraded version called the Titan's Mitt).[[/labelnote]]

* Link checked the chest. Wow! [[AccidentalInnuendo This is a nice chest!]]

* [[MostAnnoyingSound Hey! Listen!]] [[AnnoyingVideoGameHelper Hey! Listen!]] [[ Hey! Listen!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The level of irritation caused by Navi is considered the standard by which all annoying video game sidekicks must be judged.[[/labelnote]]
* Don't tell my father. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Ruto goes into a dungeon alone in ''Ocarina of Time''. Contrary to her wishes, you must tell her father in order to continue.[[/labelnote]]
** There's also the Zora King taking at least a half-minute to move so that Link can pass.
* [[ WHAT A HOT BEAT!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Darunia of the Gorons has a dance sequence. That's all the context you're getting.[[/labelnote]]
* [[spoiler:Sheik]] is the most epic reverse trap in the history of video games. [[labelnote:Explanation (spoilers)]]Debate continues to this very day as to Sheik's sex, and despite ''multiple'' WordOfGod on the subject (and the fact in ''Ocarina of Time'', Sheik actually transforms into Zelda right in front of you, and she clearly tells you that she was Sheik the whole time), many still refuse to believe that Sheik is actually Zelda.[[/labelnote]]
** Even the rumor of finding the Triforce in ''Ocarina of Time'' is memetic. [[FandomBerserkButton But we all know what happens to those who say things like this...]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]In-game, it is stated that the Triforce of Courage resides in Link's heart. There is no physical Triforce in the game.[[/labelnote]]
* Did you get all that?
** >No
** Yes
** Do you want to hear what I said again?
*** >Yes
*** No [[labelnote:Explanation]]Kaepora Gaebora in ''Ocarina of Time'' goes on long-winded speeches... [[ShallIRepeatThat and frequently tricks the player into listening to them more than once.]][[/labelnote]]
* Song of Storms [[labelnote:Explanation]]A song that has become famous for being [[EarWorm addicting to hear]].[[/labelnote]]
* [[UrbanLegendOfZelda I beat the]] [[UnwinnableJokeGame Running Man]]![[labelnote:Explanation]]As Adult Link, one of the optional minigames you can do is race a running man from Gerudo Valley to Kokiri Forest. No matter how fast Link runs, the running man will always beat him by one second, [[MindScrew even if the player uses a cheat device to trick the game into registering a time of 0 seconds]]. Naturally, rumors spawn about supposedly beating him, but they have all been proven false.[[/labelnote]]
* [[ThatOneLevel DAMN YOU WATER TEMPLE!]] / [[ScrappyMechanic Iron Boots on, Iron Boots off]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The Water Temple is the most hated level in ''Ocarina of Time'' due to the fact that many players spend hours there and the fact that you need to repeatedly put on and take off the Iron Boots (which, in the original version, involved repeatedly going into and out of the pause menu, eating up even ''more'' time; the remake allowed the player to assign the Iron Boots to a button, making it much simpler to take them on and off).[[/labelnote]]

* Dawn of the ''x''th Day -- ''y'' Hours Remain [[labelnote:Explanation]]Often used as a countdown to highly anticipated events. (The fact that the original game uses these screens as a countdown to imminent doom never seems to occur to anyone.)[[/labelnote]]
* You've met with a terrible fate, haven't you? [[labelnote:Explanation]]The Happy Mask Salesman's speech once you run out of time and the Moon crashes on Termina, but he brings you back to day one.[[/labelnote]]
* [[WebVideo/BenDrowned BEN.DROWNED]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]A memetic catchphrase spawned from a now-dead creepypasta related to this very game.[[/labelnote]]

* 'Hoy, small fry! [[labelnote:Explanation]]The fishmen who fill out Link's Sea Chart use this as their CatchPhrase, and this is always their first line. Considering that the fishmen give useful hints towards OneHundredPercentCompletion and that a fully mapped out Sea Chart has its own benefits... expect to read this line a lot.[[/labelnote]]
** Che~yyy! [[labelnote:Explanation]]This is the voice effect the fishmen make when they say their CatchPhrase.[[/labelnote]]
* '''''C'MON!!!''''' HeroicMime, ''subverted''.[[labelnote:Explanation]]How Link tells a Tower statue/Medli/Makar to follow him if they weren't already.[[/labelnote]]
** '''''Meow!''''' Likewise.[[labelnote:Explanation]]This is what Link does to make a would-be thief think he's just a cat. If she can't see him, that is.[[/labelnote]]
* [[{{Mondegreen}} CHICKACHICKACHICKA]][[labelnote:Explanation]]The entirety of the background music of the battle against the boss, Molgera, has a lot of chicka, as heard [[ here]].[[/labelnote]]
* Link taking selfies. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The Wii U remake allows Link to take selfies with his pictograph. It didn't take long for players to start using this new feature humorously; for example, having Link take selfies during otherwise serious moments, like boss fights.[[/labelnote]]

* Twilight [[EightPointEight 8.8]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The fan rage when ''Twilight Princess'' was given a score of 8.8 out of 10 was large enough to spread across the internet. Also a TropeNamer.[[/labelnote]]
* "I know you have bugs...." [[labelnote:Explanation]]Said by [[CreepyChild Agitha]] the [[CloudCuckooLander Bug Princess]] whenever you leave her house with new bugs you haven't given her.[[/labelnote]]
* [[ NOT TAKE MIRROR!]] [[labelnote:Explanation (Spoiler)]]After getting to the second mirror shard in Snowpeak Ruins, Yeta the Yeti gets corrupted by its influence and does not allow Link to take it, screaming the quote to them with a [[NightmareFace terrifying face]].[[/labelnote]]
* "Wait, is that a fishing rod?" [[labelnote:Explanation(spoiler)]]When fighting Ganondorf, you can get him to be distracted by your fishing rod. The fact that the villain of the series gets distracted by something so silly is very comical.[[/labelnote]]
* GET A JOB! GET A JOB! [[labelnote: Explanation]]The music that plays when fighting [[spoiler: Beast Ganon]] has some strange chanting in the background. Fans joke around about what the chanters are saying, with many believing that it sounds like Homer Simpson saying "get a job".

* Demon Lord [[FanNickname Debbie]] is so ''[[SissyVillain fabulous]]''.
** I think you mean [[ThatMakesMeFeelAngry FURIOUS!]] [[MilkingTheGiantCow OUTRAGED!]] [[EvilIsHammy SICK WITH ANGER!]]
** Ghirahim's [[OverlyLongTongue tongue.]]
** ''This news has just filled my heart with rainbows!''
** Ghirahim is a veritable FountainOfMemes. No exceptions.
* And now in the same vein of ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'', we have: [[EightPointEight *Something* Score: 7.5]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The score [=GameSpot=] gave. Not by the same guy, though.[[/labelnote]]
* Have you been getting your Gratitude Crystals from the thankful women? [[labelnote:Explanation]]Gratitude Crystals are strange little PlotCoupons given to you by completing quests. The "thankful women" part is probably just [[DoubleEntendre the product of someone's dirty mind]].[[/labelnote]]
* Wanna play the "How loud can you scream" game? [[labelnote:Explanation]]A friendly monster that kidnapped (but not really) a child likes playing this game. Alone. With a child. It doesn't take a genius [[MistakenForPedophile to see how people]] (in-universe) could [[ThinkOfTheChildren get]] [[PaedoHunt the]] [[EatsBabies wrong]] [[YouCanPanicNow idea]].[[/labelnote]]
* There is a __% chance... [[labelnote:Explanation]][[IfMyCalculationsAreCorrect Fi likes statistics.]] A lot.[[/labelnote]]
* Think about what you can do with a stranded girl and mushrooms. [[labelnote:Explanation]]A girl gets trapped on an island because her Loftwing was injured. You need to give it medicine, which is mushrooms. Again, dirty-minded players had a field day with this.[[/labelnote]]
* The Bokoblin's[=/=]Moblin's undergarments. [[labelnote:Explanation]]They're apparently so obsessed with their cheetah print underpants that according to Fi, they can literally COME BACK FROM THE DEAD DUE TO THEIR ATTACHMENT TO THEM.[[/labelnote]]
* The Legend of Groose: The Groosenator of Grooseland [[labelnote:Explanation]]Groose has become the resident MemeticBadass.[[/labelnote]]
** The Legend of Groose: [[AnimeHair Skyward Hair]]
* [[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants Squidward]] Sword [[labelnote:Explanation]]A series of photoshops replacing various things with Squidward and other characters from ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants''.[[/labelnote]]
* Zelda likes to push Link off of cliffs. [[labelnote:Explanation]]In-game, she pushes Link off of a cliff. Twice. Jokes are often made that this is Zelda's way of either showing affection toward, or friend-zoning, Link, among other things.[[/labelnote]]
* Groose's theme goes with everything. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Similar to [[Franchise/StreetFighter Guile]]'s theme, Groose's theme has been used for a variety of things.[[/labelnote]]
* Before the game came out, fan speculation on the then-unnamed Fi ran amok, culminating in her being called 'Steve'.
* "WE HATE YOU GROOSE!" "Groose, you're awesome!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Many players hated Groose at the start of the game for how he bullied Link and got in the way of one of the most popular ships in video game history. However, as Groose was given a healthy amount of CharacterDevelopment and more than one chance to display that he genuinely cared for Zelda, he grew on fans. By the time he stopped pining for her and started supporting Link as a good friend, he became one of the most popular characters in the game.[[/labelnote]]

* "Mumbo jumbo, mumbo jumbo..."[[labelnote:Explanation]]The masked cult in Lorule's CatchPhrase.[[/labelnote]]
* "GIMME BACK MAH RUPEES!"[[labelnote:Explanation]]Said by a Hinox in Lorule [[VideoGameCrueltyPunishment if you refuse to spare him]].[[/labelnote]]

!!!''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaCDIGames'' (non-canon)
* MAH BOI! [[labelnote:Explanation]]The King is actually saying "My Boy". The King's lines are often a source of parody videos on Website/YouTube. The screenshot often used, with the King raising his pointer finger, is actually from when he says "...strive ''for''".[[/labelnote]]
** "This peace is what all true warriors strive for."
** "I wonder what's for dinner?"
** "After you've scrubbed all the floors in Hyrule, then we can talk about mercy!"
* "Squadala! We are off!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Said by Gwonam, a wizard from The Faces of Evil as he flies off with his carpet.[[/labelnote]]
* "Lamp oil? Rope? Bombs? You want it? It's yours, my friend, as long as you have enough rubies." [[labelnote:Explanation]]Morshu, a storekeeper from The Faces of Evil.[[/labelnote]]
** "Sorry, Link. I can't ''give'' credit. Come back when you're a little... MMMMM... ''richer''!"
* "[[DisproportionateRetribution You DARE bring light to my lair?! YOU MUST DIE!]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Line said by Ganon once you face him in The Wand of Gamelon.[[/labelnote]]
** "Join me, Link, and I will make you a Face[[note]]Often written as [[{{Mondegreen}} "your face"]][[/note]], the GREATEST in Koridai! Or else you will '''DIE'''."[[labelnote:Explanation]]Line said by Ganon once you face him in The Faces of Evil.[[/labelnote]]
** "'''NO'''! Not into the pit! IT BUUUUUURNNSSS!!"
* "I can't ''wait'' to bomb some Dodongos!"
* "This is illegal, you know!"
* Actually, let's just say every single line from the CD-I games is a meme.
--> ''"And I thought Zelda CD-i was the lowest form of WebAnimation/YouTubePoop."''
* [[WebVideo/GameGrumps ♫Looks like you've got]] [[WithLyrics a baby penis...♫]][[labelnote:Explanation]]Lyrics for the [[ overworld map theme]] from ''Wand of Gamelon'', courtesy of [[Music/NinjaSexParty Danny Sexbang]].[[/labelnote]]

* Link's scarf. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Link's ScarfOfAsskicking has become very popular with the fan base, so much so that a lot of fans are asking for it to be part of Link's canon design from here on out.[[/labelnote]]
* Groose or Riot. [[labelnote:explanation]]The request for Groose from ''Skyward Sword'' to be playable. The phrase is very popular on ''Hyrule Warriors'' Direct.[[/labelnote]]
* Ganondorf and hair-care products. [[labelnote:explanation]]Ganondorf's new long hair has prompted a lot of jokes about how dedicated the Demon King is to maintaining it. It got to the point that Nintendo of Europe [[ got in on it]].[[/labelnote]]

* Depicting Link in a princess dress [[labelnote:Explanation]]In the game you can dress Link in various costumes, one of them being Zelda's dress. Link crossdressing has always been a thing in the fandom due to his effeminate looks but it had never been depicted canonically. The princess dress has the most fanworks out of all the costumes, though the cheerleader outfit is also popular.[[/labelnote]]

* Real horses don't run into trees very often. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Aonuma explaining how Epona was going to be given her own AI to allow her to navigate on her own while the player is preoccupied with other things.[[/labelnote]]
* Naked Pyromaniac Link [[labelnote:Explanation]]The ability for Link to be a WalkingShirtlessScene and being able to KillItWithFire to enemies, weapons, environment, ''everything'', resulting in... patterns of play with the demo shown at UsefulNotes/{{E3}}. [[/labelnote]]
** [[ The Legend of Zelda: BURN EVERYTHING]]
** Further mutated with the discovery that Link can ride bears... after setting said bear on fire. Usually captioned with the phrase "WHO'S THE CALAMITY NOW!?"
* [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain L Has Come To]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Thanks to some cleverly edited Breath of the Wild trailer footage combined with the song ''Sins of the Father'' and the resulting snowclones, some fans have strongly associated ''Breath of the Wild'' with ''The Phantom Pain''.[[/labelnote]]
-->From LINK Two Phantoms Were Born\\
He played us like a damn Ocarina!\\

"You're a legend (of Zelda) in the eyes of those who live on the Hyrule Field, so you'll have to handle this quest yourself. That's how Groose would want it. Gerudo Valley is a big place. I expect you'll become quite familiar with that tablet as you find the next dungeon. How and where you explore... well that's up to you. Now go! Let the legend (of Zelda) come back to life!" ... "Did you get all of that?" (No/Yes)
* The Legend of Zelda: (Other Franchise)[[labelnote:Explanation]]Due to the vast environments, weapons, and situations in the game, some users on Miiverse have taken to posting screencaps of their games with these sorts of captions; such as Link dying in soldier armor and calling it "The Legend of Zelda: [[VideoGame/DarkSouls Dark Souls]]", Link in a shrine with "The Legend of Zelda: VideoGame/{{Portal}}", or recipes with "The Legend of Zelda: [[VideoGame/CookingMama Cooking Mama]]".[[/labelnote]]
* It's time... to scrub all the floors in Hyrule! [[labelnote:Explenation]]One of the weapons obtainable in the game is [[MundaneMadeAwesome a wooden mop]]. Combine that with the phrase from the Zelda CDi games, and you get this meme.[[/labelnote]]
* Link's TrademarkFavoriteFood being apples. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The first food item shown off were apples. Fans instantly began depicting Link as apple obsessed[[/labelnote]]
* "Link is hot". [[labelnote:Explanation]]The line comes from an interview where Nintendo of America's president Reggie Fils-Aime was questioned about how female gamers are drawn to the game due to Link being a MrFanservice. Reggie ended up replying with the quote[[/labelnote]]
* Lynels' reputation. [[labelnote:Explanation]] People ''really'' hate them for being DemonicSpiders and ''common''.[[/labelnote]]
* ''[[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureStardustCrusaders ZA WARUDO!!!]]'' [[labelnote:Explanation]]Once you obtain and upgrade Stasis, you can temporarily freeze time to take out your enemies quicker. Fans caught on with this and Website/YouTube videos will often will have Dio's CatchPhrase in the title.[[/labelnote]]
* If you can't handle me at my worst, you don't deserve me at my best! [[labelnote:Explanation]] The Master Sword at literally any given point of time. If you use it too much (even in Hyrule Castle when it's in it's uninhibited form), it will run out of energy and give you a ''very'' long cool-down time before you can use it again. In addition, you have to have at least thirteen heart containers before you'll even be able to ''retrieve it''. Some people interpret it as Fi testing him out of spite because Link ditched her for the last century.[[/labelnote]]
* Shark husbando / fish husband. [[labelnote:Explanation]] Prince Sidon grew ''really'' popular among both the furry and non furry fandom, with going head over heals for him. [[EvenTheGuysWantHim Even the guys.]][[/labelnote]]
** I'd fuck that fish. [[labelnote:Explanation]] The more explicit love for Sidon by fans.[[/labelnote]]
** Fish bro. [[labelnote:Explanation]] From pretty much everyone else.[[/labelnote]]
* "That fucking robo-[elephant/camel]." [[labelnote:Explanation]] The two most difficult dungeons in the game(by popular opinion)are Vah Ruta and Vah Naboris. Ruta is likely because it's likely the first dungeon the player would experience in this format and the "Divine Beast Controls" on the map are easy to miss. On the ''other'' hand, Naboris is just difficult overall. While the other three dungeons had 1, 3, and 2 configurations you can arrange the map into, Naboris has ''twelve''.[[/labelnote]]
* The Puzzle-Skip Shrine [[labelnote:Explanation]] The Myahm Agana Shrine is frustrating if done as intended, so a ''lot'' of people either turn it over and use the flat side, or... [[ whatever this is]]. [[/labelnote]]
* Killing Yiga Clan members in ridiculous ways. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Ever since a Switch update allowed users to share videos of Switch gameplay, it's become common for ''Breath of the Wild'' players to confront disguised members of the Yiga Clan, only to kill them immediately after the conversation is over in increasingly absurd ways. Tricks include [[ColonyDrop dropping boxes on them]] or [[ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks hurling a weapon at them]].[[/labelnote]]
* "It runs on apples!" / Apple engine. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The motorbike from the Champion's Ballad DLC requires fuel use. Fuel which is basically anything you have clogging up your inventory, including apples. The sheer absurdity of this quickly became memetic.[[/labelnote]]
* "Yahaha! You found me!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]A line spoken by Koroks when you discover their hiding places.[[/labelnote]]

* [[WebVideo/BenDrowned You shouldn't have done that...]]
* [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfZelda Well, excuuuuuuuse me, Princess!]][[labelnote:Explanation]]Link's retort whenever Zelda mocked him in the animated series.[[/labelnote]]
* [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfZelda Looking good, Princess Zelda -- especially from THIS angle!]][[labelnote:Explanation]]The first words out of Link's mouth in the series, spoken to a Zelda in her undergarments on a balcony below. Zelda, having heard that, immediately gets a coat to wear.[[/labelnote]]

!!!Fandom Memes
* "[[FandomBerserkButton GANNON-BANNED]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]]A satirical punishment doled out to ''Zelda'' fans (sometimes {{troll}}s) who get details wrong regarding the series.[[/labelnote]]
* '99% Confirmed.' [[labelnote:Explanation]]Shortly before E3 2010, the website Zelda Informer posted a bunch of "inside info" about the then-upcoming ''Skyward Sword'', known at the time simply as "Legend of Zelda." The header for the image was the early artwork with "99% Confirmed" printed over it in big, bold letters. Their alleged source? Someone whom they claimed was Miyamoto's English translator... [[EpicFail whom they also said happened to be German.]] A few days later, E3 came along and debunked all of their claims, prompting the main moderator of the site to post a video where he seemingly shoved a Wii Remote up his nose, which he said he would do if he was wrong. The website has yet to live it down, and "99% confirmed" has become a joke on other fansites, even non-Zelda ones.[[/labelnote]]
* What if Zelda was a girl? [[labelnote:Explanation]]A form of trolling intended to push the FandomBerserkButton by [[ProtagonistTitleFallacy referring to the player character as Zelda]], who is a girl. Occasionally prone to the further mutation [[RougeAnglesOfSatin "What if Zelda was a grill?"]] This meme also saw resurgence with the official reveal of Linkle, Link's DistaffCounterpart in ''VideoGame/HyruleWarriors''.[[/labelnote]]
