Zelda: Ocarina Of Time has a seriously creepy secret you probably missed

Zelda: Ocarina Of Time has a seriously creepy secret you probably missed

Oh, Link

Sometimes you miss things because you’re not looking, but when it comes to this Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time secret, it was easy to miss regardless how astute you are.

It’s been 26 years since the game was originally released, yet the treasured Nintendo title still has secrets to reveal to us. And thanks to its Nintendo Switch port, it now can.

Instead of looking to the past, let's look to the future with The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom trailer.

Only not everything discovered in The Legend of Zelda is helpful or sweet, sometimes it’s creepy and better left unseen.

Unfortunately, we opened Pandora’s box and now we can’t close it.

In a blink and you’ll miss it moment during Link and Dark Link’s boss fight, we see a hint at how this dark presence comes into being.

As you approach the island in the arena, Link has a reflection in the water. Yet, once you’ve triggered the battle, his reflection is no longer there. Coincidence? We think not.

Especially considering that upon Dark Link’s defeat, Link’s reflection returns to him.

In noticing this unnerving detail, we begin to understand why this fight happens in the Water Temple and not the Shadow Temple: it’s because Link is fighting his inner demons, ones only addressed when seeing his reflection.

Whether this is the canon reason for the location of the battle, and for Dark Link’s arrival, we can’t say.

Still, it makes for a stimulating theory that adds additional layers to this exceptional classic adventure.

With another mystery seemingly solved, it’s time to go hunting for new secrets. Your ideal starting point is to search for some hidden loot that has (mostly) remained concealed for 26 years.

Never be fooled into thinking The Legend of Zelda classics don’t have anything new or interesting to gift us in a modern of modern adventures; there’s much life in these golden oldies yet.
