8 incredible Legend Of Zelda facts

Some amazing things we learned from Hyrule Historia

8. The Pearl Guardians

In the Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, there are three guardians of the pearls of the Goddesses and they are all linked to characters from Ocarina of Time. The Deku Tree is, of course, a descendant of the Great Deku Tree. It is quite possible it may be the grown up version Deku Tree sprout. It seems likely, but there is no direct reference to this.

Jabun, rather than being the same individual as Jabu-Jabu as speculated, is actually said to be a descendant of him.

The most interesting is Valoo, who is said to be a benevolent descendant of the malicious dragon Volvagia, who Link defeated in Ocarina of Time to save the Goron tribe.

I have to admit, it was incredibly difficult to stop myself posting the entire contents of the book for this article. There are literally hundreds of fascinating bits of information to discover in Hyrule Historia and if you're a Zelda fan, you owe it to yourself to go out and buy a copy.
