"The Invasion Begins" is the second Scenario of the Cia's Tale arc of Legend Mode in Hyrule Warriors.[1] It takes place in Hyrule Field.


Set before "The Armies of Ruin,"[2] Wizzro advises that the Dark Forces capture the kingdom's Fairies to gain an advantage.[3] When some of the Fairies escaped their capture, Cia had Wizzro and Volga dispatched to Hyrule Field.[4] Despite Cia's efforts, Lana was working with the Gorons to protect the Fairies and had arrived at the Field.[5][6]

During their battle with the Gorons, Volga commands that either the W. Rockface Keep or the East Field Keep be captured to open the enemy gates. Lana sends several Goron Captains to make their way to Hyrule Castle (Castle Keep and/or Abandoned Fort) to ask for reinforcements. Cia commands that they be stopped before they reach the Castle. Depending on the actions of Volga or Wizzro, the Goron Captains are either all defeated or successfully reach their destination, thus calling for more aid. While this is going on, Lana advances to the north to stage an attack on the Dark Forces, which opens the other gate. Lana is defeated, however, and retreats from the battlefield, but swears she will defeat Cia.

Zelda then appears on the field, who although confused by the sudden invasion, readies her troops for combat. Cia immediately switches her attention onto her and commands her Forces to ignore the Fairies and to kill the Princess. Zelda's call to arms results in several Keeps controlled by the Hyrulean Forces opening as her troops advance towards the Dark Forces' Base. Cia plans a counterattack and has her troops advance as well. As several Hylian Captains are defeated, Impa appears on the battlefield to intercept the Dark Forces. Cia sees an opportunity in this and states that if Impa is defeated, Zelda will have to come out. Impa falls and temporarily retreats, which demoralizes the Hyrulean Forces and halts their advance. Their retreat leaves Cia with an air of confidence as she falls back to let Volga and Wizzro carry the rest of the battle.

With Impa defeated, the Castle Keep's gate partially opens as Zelda advances. Her encouragement boosts the Hyrulean Forces' morale. Volga leaves to battle the Princess himself and fights in front of the Castle. If Zelda is not defeated in a sufficient amount of time, Impa will reappear on the battlefield, having recovered from her wounds.

Ultimately, Zelda is defeated, and she withdraws her troops from the battlefield, promising to regroup and return later.[7] The Hyrulean Forces rally themselves to ready for the next battle. Though their retreat bothers Wizzro, he swears that they will return as the Dark Forces leave in victory.
