The Oracles is a recurring group in the Legend of Zelda series. The Oracles are as follows; Din, Farore, and Nayru: the Oracles of Seasons, Secrets and Ages, respectively.

The names of the Oracles are the same as the three Golden Goddesses who created the land of Hyrule. It is possible that all the descendants of the lines of Oracles are named in honor of the Golden Goddesses. It could also be that the Oracles are earthly embodiments of the goddesses.

The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons

For untold ages in the worlds of Labrynna and Holodrum, three female Oracles have existed; each gifted with the power of control of separate aspects of the two worlds. The Oracle of Ages was given the ability to control time in Labrynna, the Oracle of Seasons was given control over the four seasons of Holodrum and the Oracle of Secrets was given the power to keep "secrets" and give them form. This oracle appears in both Labrynna and Holodrum. The power of the Oracles was handed down from generation to generation; the current Oracle was always required to hide her true identity from the rest of the world, lest this knowledge be found out by those of evil intent. As a safeguard, should one of the Oracles be compromised, two objects were created that allowed someone to use certain aspects of the Oracles' power to rescue them.

During the time Link travels to Labrynna or Holodrum, the Oracles are Din, Nayru and Farore. Din and Nayru have passed themselves off as a dancer and singer, respectively, in order to hide their identities. Farore resides within both the female and male Maku Trees in both worlds; little else is known about her, befitting an Oracle of Secrets. Despite their efforts to hide themselves, both Nayru and Din are taken captive, and Link retrieves the Harp of Ages and Rod of Seasons, allowing him to utilize their power to rescue them and restore the flow of time in Labrynna and seasons in Holodrum.

The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap

The Oracles can be found in Hyrule Town looking for a place to stay. Link can fuse Kinstones with them, and Joy Butterflies will appear in flower patches. Link can fuse Kinstones with various characters in order to provide houses for two of the oracles. They will reward Link for finding them a house by giving him either Din, Farore or Nayru's Charm whenever he asks.
