Princess Zelda

Princess Zelda is a fictional character in The Legend

of Zelda series of video games. She is a member of Hyrule's

royal family and plays an integral role in Hyrule's history. Though

she is the eponymous character, the player controls the main

protagonist, Link. Zelda is usually kidnapped or imprisoned by

Ganon, also known as Ganondorf. In some games, she appears as one

of the sages. In Ocarina of Time and The Minish Cap,

she displays other magical powers, such as energy blasts and force

fields. Creator Shigeru Miyamoto has stated that her name was

inspired by Zelda Fitzgerald, the wife of American novelist F.

Scott Fitzgerald.[1]

s a character in Ocarina of Time, and is an alter ego of

Zelda. In the game, Zelda passes herself off as a young Sheikah

male known as Sheik. With voice muffled and face concealed, as well

as wearing a form-fitting blue suit, black boots with the red

Sheikah eye in the center, the character is essentially

unrecognizable as Zelda.[2]

Sheik- Sheik plays the harp and teaches Link new songs to help

him on his quest. When Link arrives at the Temple of Time near the

end of the game, Sheik uses the Triforce of Wisdom and reverts to

Zelda. It is claimed by the character's trophy in Super Smash

Bros. Melee that Zelda uses her magical skills to change her

skin tone, hair length, eye color, and clothing. In addition, Sheik

is voiced by a female voice actor in Ocarina of Time,

Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

However, when Link encounters Princess Ruto in the Water Temple,

she refers to Sheik as "a man", and in the manga for Ocarina of

Time it says that Zelda used the Triforce of Wisdom to actually

become male while disguised as Sheik, and sealing away the

consciousness of Zelda.

Sheik appears in Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super

Smash Bros. Brawl, in which Zelda can change into Sheik as one

of her abilities. According to "Smash DOJO", Sheik's new design in

Brawl is based on a model created for consideration in

Twilight Princess.[3]

Tetra

Tetra, as depicted in The Wind Waker

Tetra is a young female pirate who, in The Wind

Waker and The Phantom Hourglass, causes Link to start

his journey. Her mother died a few years before the events of

The Wind Waker, and she was left to lead the group of

pirates. She is the one who Ganondorf intended the Helmaroc King to

kidnap, instead of Aryll. Initially, she does not like Link,

unimpressed by his sadness owing to the kidnapping. Later, however,

she notices Link wielding the Master Sword as he advances to slay

the Helmaroc King.

She periodically helps Link in his quest, and, later, her true

identity is revealed in Hyrule Castle: she is Princess Zelda, the

last heiress in the Hylian Royal Family bloodline. Before this,

Tetra did not know she was Zelda, yet knew of Hyrule, the legend of

the Hero of Time, and the Master Sword, and wore a large piece of

the Triforce of Wisdom around her neck as a necklace. When reunited

with her ancestor, the King of Hyrule, their Triforce pieces unite,

triggering her physical transformation into the fair-skinned,

blonde Princess Zelda.

Tetra also appears in Tetra's Trackers, a part of the

Japanese version of Four Swords Adventures, as well as

Phantom Hourglass, where she is taken by the Ghost Ship,

from which Link must rescue her. Link then learns that he must also

defeat Bellum to restore her from being transformed into stone.
