Songs,[1] also known as Melodies[2] and Notes,[3][4] are recurring elements in The Legend of Zelda series.[5][name reference needed]


The Legend of Zelda[]

Playing the Flute will summon a tornado, which can carry Link to dungeon entrances. It also dries up a pond, and will cause Digdogger to split into three fragments.

The Adventure of Link[]

A Link to the Past[]

Playing the Ocarina, which in localisations is mislabelled as a Flute, will summon a bird to carry Link to one of eight warp points.

Link's Awakening[]

Ocarina of Time[]

Majora's Mask[]

Oracle of Seasons[]

The Song of Storms is played at the Windmill by Guru-Guru.

Oracle of Ages[]

Four Swords[]

The Wind Waker[]

Four Swords Adventures[]

The Minish Cap[]

While music does not play a large role in the story or mechanics of The Minish Cap, when Link obtains the Ocarina of Wind, he can play it (using the same tune as the Flute from The Legend of Zelda) to summon Zeffa, who will swoop down and transport him to any Wind Crest he has activated across Hyrule.

Additionally, after Link collects the first 130 Figurines in the Figurine Gallery, Herb will let him inside the Music House, where a Phonograph can be used to play songs from the game.

There are also two Songs briefly sung in-game: "Live Long, Love Long" by Ezlo and "Ting Tong" by the Mountain Minish.

Twilight Princess[]

Phantom Hourglass[]

Spirit Tracks[]

Skyward Sword[]

A Link Between Worlds[]

Tri Force Heroes[]

Breath of the Wild[]

Kass can be found in multiple Regions of Hyrule playing Ancient Songs to help Link find Shrines or Treasures.

During Breath of the Wild's "EX The Champion's Ballad DLC" Kass writes four individual songs of each Champion by using verses written by the Court Poet.

He then combines these four songs to form the Champions' Ballad.
