Quotes: The Legend of Zelda
"Some call our realm a world of shadows, but that makes it sound unpleasant...The twilight there holds a serene beauty...you have seen it yourself as the sun sets on this world. Bathed in that light, all people were pure and gentle...But things changed once that foul power pervaded our world..."
Midna, after the Mirror of Twilight is restored, Twilight Princess

"It's the Legend of Zelda and it's really rad, those creatures from Gannon are pretty bad, Octoroks, tektites, levers too, with your help our hero pulls through. Yeah, go Link, yeah, get some, awesome! Intense!

"I FOUND A MIRROR UNDER THE TABLE."

"SSSSKKKYYYAAAAAAA!!!!"

Link, answering Nabooru in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

"Meooow!"
Link, hiding from Mila in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

"An ally of justice!"

"COME ON!!"

I Am Error
—Error of Ruto

Whenever there's a meeting, a parting is sure to follow. However, that parting need not last forever. Whether that parting is forever or only for a short time, that is up to you.
The Happy Mask Salesman, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

My son... gives me Helpful Nintendo Hints that are far too complex for the adult mind to comprehend. Here's a verbatim example: "OK, there's Ganon and miniature Ganon and there's these things like jelly beans and the miniature Ganon is more powerfuller, because when you touch him the flying eagles come down and the octopus shoots red rocks and the swamp takes longer." And the hell of it is, I know he's right.
Dave Barry, describing what may very well be Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, "Un Nintended Benefits"

Link: Gee! It sure is boring around here!
Harkinian: Hmm... How can we help?
Link: Great! I'll grab my stuff!
Link: How about a kiss, for luck?
Zelda: You've got to be kidding me.
Link: Whoah, what are all those heads?
Gwonam: These are the Faces of Evil. You must conquer each.
Link: I guess I better get going!
Gwonam: Here is the map. Where do you wish to go?

King Harkinian: Zelda, Duke Onkled is under attack by the evil forces of Ganon! I'm going to Gamelon to aid him!
Zelda: But Father! What if something happens to you?
King Harkinian: I'll take the Triforce of Courage to protect me. If you don't hear from me in a month, send Link.
Zelda: Impa!
Impa: Don't worry, Zelda - the Triforce of Wisdom promises that the King will return safely.
King Harkinian: Enough! My ship sails in the morning. I wonder what's for dinner?
Link: Oh boy! I'm so hungry, I could eat an octorok!

"Many games have a story, only one is a legend."
