Heartwarming / The Legend of Zelda

Go To

The Zelda series has so many Crowning Moments of Heartwarming, it deserves its own Heart Container to store them all.

The cartoon

  • Late in "The Missing Link," Ganon states that Zelda is able to see Link's non-corporeal form due to The Power of Love. Both Link and Zelda are in earshot of this. Zelda profusely denies this to Link...
    Link: Yes you do!! Yes you do!! *sings* That's why you can seeeee meeeee!!!! *stands up on a ledge to proclaim the glorious news to the rest of Level-9*
    Zelda: Get down, you idiot!! They'll hear you!!
  • In "That Sinking Feeling," Zelda is overjoyed at a picnic Link has set up and glomps him. She's just about to kiss him when Ganon attacks and ruins the mood.

The manga

  • In the manga version of Majora's Mask, when Kafei is blaming himself for not being with Anju during the third day, Anju suddenly appears thanks to Tatl telling her.
  • Near the end of the manga version of The Four Swords, The Reveal that Shadow Link is alive and happy.
    • Earlier when the four Links are gathered around the dying Shadow, they refer to him as family.


  • Gabe Marcelo, a lifelong Zelda fan, knew he might not make to the release date of Breath of the Wild and decided to try it hands-on before he went. Eventually, he got to live his dream, going to Nintendo's Seattle HQ, getting a tour of the facilities and played the game himself before passing away. The story can be read here.
  • A commercial for Ocarina of Time 3D, starring the late Robin Williams and his daughter Zelda. Robin talks to Zelda about how he became a hero and saved her kingdom, causing the latter to ask if he's mixing her up with the princess again. Robin's response? "Hard to say, you're both pretty magical".


How well does it match the trope?
