If you rush through The Legend Of Zelda games to get to the end you may miss some great secrets. For example, if you look through a certain window of Hyrule Castle before you meet Zelda in Ocarina In Time, you'll see a New Super Mario Bros picture.
Now ONM forum member Zabba 2 has rounded up 10 interesting facts and things you may have missed from the Legend Of Zelda games.
1. The Dying Soldier - Ocarina Of Time
There's a very obscure interaction often missed by players in Zelda: Ocarina of Time. After meeting Ganondorf face to face and getting the Ocarina of Time, but before opening the Door of Time, there is a wounded soldier slumped in the back alley of Hyrule Market. He explains what happened regarding Ganondorf and why Zelda has fled, before dying quietly. This interaction can only be accessed between this short frame of time.
2. Ganon's Sword - Wind WakerIn Wind Waker, if you translate the Hylian text on Phantom Ganon's sword, it states Zubora Gabora. This isn't meaningless gibberish - it's actually the names of the two blacksmiths who reside on Snowhead Mountain in Majora's Mask.
3. Totaka's Song - Link's Awakening
The Legend Of Zelda: Link's Awakening is one of the few Nintendo games to feature Totaka's Song. The song is a 19-note tune that composer Kazumi Totaka is famous for hiding in nearly all the videogames he works on. The song is infamous for being notoriously difficult to find, to the extent that people are still looking for it in some games as far back as the N64. In Link's Awakening, it can be heard if you wait in Richard's villa for 2 minutes and 30 seconds. A second method involving the name-select screen exists for the Japanese and German versions only.
4. Spell it out - The Legend Of Zelda
In the original Legend of Zelda, the layout of five of the dungeons in the Second Quest mode spell out the word Zelda when arranged accordingly.
