This memory can be activated at the Sacred Ground Ruins, just south of Hyrule Castle. It begins with the Champions watching Princess Zelda perform a ceremony with Link kneeled in front of her, recognizing him as the hero of Hyrule Kingdom. During her speech, Daruk and Urbosa are shown to be concerned by Zelda's demeanor.
As Zelda continues, Daruk comments to the others that the ceremony is not very uplifting and that Zelda sounds as though they've already lost. Revali then reminds Daruk that this was his idea, revealing that he has little faith in Link's abilities. Urbosa dismisses Revali's criticisms, stating that she believes Zelda sees Link as a reminder of her own failure to unlock her sealing power. After this, the memory ends with Zelda staring down at Link.
- During her speech, Zelda references the events of Skyward Sword, Ocarina of Time, and Twilight Princess.
