The Crest of the Gerudo is a recurring symbol in The Legend of Zelda series.[1] It depicts the back of a King Cobra.[1]


Ocarina of Time

The Crest of the Gerudo on the Mirror Shield

In Ocarina of Time, the Crest of the Gerudo appears on various Switches, Blocks, flags, and the Mirror Shield. In the Nintendo 64 version, it resembled a mirrored version of the real-world star and crescent symbol. It was later replaced in subsequent versions with a new symbol first introduced in Majora's Mask, as it violated Nintendo's own policy of avoiding religious material in their games.[2]

Majora's Mask

In Majora's Mask, the Crest of the Gerudo appears within the Pirates' Fortress in Aveil's chamber.

Onox displays the Crest of the Gerudo on his chest plate.

In The Wind Waker, the Crest of the Gerudo appears in the Stained Glass representing Nabooru found within the Master Sword chamber in Hyrule Castle, beneath the Great Sea. It also appears on Ganondorf's Sword.

In Twilight Princess, a slightly altered version of the Crest of the Gerudo can be seen on Ganondorf's cloak and the front of Zant's garments.

Breath of the Wild

In Breath of the Wild, the Crest of the Gerudo appears in Gerudo Town and Gerudo Canyon, on jewelry worn by Riju, and on the jeweled buckle of the garter that Urbosa wears at her hip.
