The "Earth God's Lyric" is a recurring Song in The Legend of Zelda series.[1]

Learning Location and Uses[]

The Wind Waker[]

It is conducted using the Wind Waker and is learned from a Stone Tablet inside the cave of Headstone Island. Upon learning this melody, the Zora sage known as Laruto appears in front of Link. Laruto was the Sage of the Earth until Ganondorf stole her soul inside the Earth Temple.[2] Her spirit remained in the hopes that the new Sage of the Earth could be awakened.

The "Earth God's Lyric" must be played in front of Medli in order to awaken her as the Sage of Earth.[3][4] Medli, with the help of Link, plays this song on her harp to open the entrance to the Earth Temple.[5]

This melody must be played numerous times inside the Earth Temple in order to break down several Stone Tablets and thus be able to progress through the dungeon. After defeating Jalhalla, Link conducts the Earth God's Lyric for Medli and Laruto so that the power to repel evil is restored to the Master Sword.

Other Appearances[]

Hyrule Warriors[]

Medli plays the "Earth God's Lyric" on her Rito Harp in Hyrule Warriors. She plays this Song to create a Crest of Din on the ground as one of her attack combos and as one of her attacks while under the effects of Focus Spirit and it ends. She also plays the Song during her victory animation.
