The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess introduces a new form of Hylian text that is a cipher based on the Latin alphabet. It translates directly to English in most cases, and occasionally to Japanese. The previous form of Hylian text, introduced in The Wind Waker, also makes an appearance in the Kakariko Village Graveyard.

Images from Twilight Princess HD are shown where available. For Hylian text added or altered in that version, see Hylian Language Translations/Twilight Princess HD.

  7. This is part of the legend told in The Wind Waker's introduction.
  8. 8.0 8.1 8.2 8.3 This text is enlarged and legible in Twilight Princess HD, though it is filler text with no particular meaning.
