The "Command Melody" is a song in The Wind Waker.[1]

Learning Location[]

Conducted by Link using the Wind Waker, the Command Melody is learned inside the Tower of the Gods. The monument with the notes inscribed appears after the young hero returns one of the Servants of the Tower to its resting place.


The song grants Link the ability to take control of other characters and certain statues, enabling him to move them whichever way he pleases. He uses this melody mostly in the Earth Temple and the Wind Temple with Medli and Makar, respectively. By taking control of these two characters, the young hero will be able to use their special abilities, such as using Medli's Harp to reflect light, or making Makar plant seeds to make trees grow in certain places.
