Tingles Raveng: The Tingling is a The Legend of Zelda fanfic created by AlexKnight002 on Fan Fiction Dot Net and Archive of Our Own.

The story begins off with Tingle becoming completely fed up with people ridiculing and bullying him so as compensation, he's out for revenge. He starts off by decapitating Epona's head and places it inside Link's bed. It is explained in the second chapter through flashback the reason why everyone is acting out of character is due to the three goddesses of fanfiction. A few years prior to the events of Tingle's revenge, the goddesses of fanfiction launched their first attack on Hyrule, turning everything very absurd and overall insane.

The fanfic only gets weirder from there on.

Tropes in Tingles Raveng: The Tingling:

  • Adaptational Badass: Malon, while a normal girl in the original game, is here a psychotic murderer that can turn Super Saiyan and is powerful enough to destroy the entire planet.
    • Tingle, instead of being just a weird but harmless middle-aged man, is the Big Bad and The Chessmaster.
    • Epona is a Sith Lord.
  • Adaptational Nationality: Impa is apparently Scottish.
  • Adaptational Wimp: Link is a coward with little fighting skill, much different than the Hero of Time from the original game. Justified, as this was a result of the Fanfic Goddesses' attack on Hyrule.
  • Alternate Universe Fic
  • Anachronism Stew: Hyrule somehow has modern technology, such as video games and buses.
    • Maximilien Robespierre is alive in the 21st century and in Hyrule, with it never being explained why.
  • And I Must Scream: Hinted at being the fate of those infected by the Fanfiction Goddesses.
    • Dolores Umbridge goes through this when Malon shoots a death laser at her that causes her to melt into a blob, but still allows her to feel all of the pain until she is put out of her misery.
    " Link watched in enjoyment as her skin melted off, and her tempatures reacheded such high levuls that even her skerlaten began to melt. Malon also used her powers to make it so that she could still feel pain with her body melting. By this point, she was nothing put a pile of goop, but could feel everything. Umbridge had no mouth and must scream."
  • Animalistic Abomination: Sakurai's cat Fukura is described as an Eldritch Abomination that takes the form of a cat.
    • The Very Hungry Caterpillar is also one, with the ultimate goal to eat the entire planet.

  • Anti-Villain: Epona's main motivation is to rightfully get revenge on Link for torturing and abusing her.
  • Anything That Moves: Link.
  • April Fool's Day Episode: Chapter 10, which claims to be the final chapter and kills off the entire cast unceremoniously. It turns out it was All Just a Dream.

  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: Happens often.

    • Australia is just Hyrule after it was flooded by the goddesses, and Dragon Roost Island is in New Zealand. Tanzania is also a nearby island.
    • Machu Picchu is apparently its own country.
