The "Overture of Sages" is a fake song claimed to exist in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. The song figured largely into one of the biggest hoaxes in the Legend of Zelda series history.

The "Overture of Sages" was supposedly played as follows: Up-C, Down-C, A, Right-C, Left-C, Up-C. In the 3DS remake of Ocarina of Time, the notes to the fake song can be played with A, R, L, Y, X, A.


Overture of Sages

Link learning the "Overture of Sages" from Kaepora Gaebora

In February of 1999, a mysterious "woman" using the pseudonym of "Ariana Almandoz" began leaking information about an obtainable Triforce in Ocarina of Time. One screenshot released by "Almandoz" to support "her" claim shows Kaepora Gaebora teaching the "Overture of Sages" to Link. Ostensibly, the song was a warp song that transported Link to the Temple of Light, where the Triforce was located — other screenshots were released to further compound this story. Although many bought into it, "Ariana Almandoz" revealed it to be a hoax on March 11, 1999 after being pressed with thousands of e-mails from skeptics and believers alike. Although a complete fake, the "Overture of Sages" is to this day remembered and considered one of the biggest fan-made hoaxes in video game history.
