Throne Rooms are recurring locations in The Legend of Zelda.[1][2][3]

Features and Overview

The Minish Cap

The Throne Room is located within Hyrule Castle in The Minish Cap. King Daltus resides within it until he is turned to stone by Vaati, who takes his place. Minister Potho and Princess Zelda are also found here, the latter also having been turned to stone.

When Vaati transforms Hyrule Castle into Dark Hyrule Castle, the Throne Room becomes an arena for Link to fight a Red Darknut. After it is defeated, the throne can be pushed aside to reveal a staircase leading to a subterranean level of the Castle.

A Link Between Worlds

The Throne Room is a single chamber inside Lorule Castle in A Link Between Worlds. The Throne Room serves as the stage of the final battle of the game, where Link faces Yuga Ganon and Princess Hilda for the freedom of Princess Zelda and ownership of Hyrule's Triforce. After unlocking the main door at the end of Lorule Castle, Link is able to access Princess Hilda's offices, which contains a portal back to Princess Zelda's offices in Hyrule that now contain several Fairies. Link follows the same path from Princess Hilda's private office to the Throne Room, where he learns of Princess Hilda's duplicity and conspiracy with Yuga to steal Hyrule's Triforce to restore Lorule, which lost its own Triforce when Hilda's ancestors destroyed it to stop the endless wars fought over it. After sharing this story with Link, Hilda steals the Triforce of Wisdom from Princess Zelda, who is contained in her painting nearby. She then summons Yuga Ganon, commanding him to take the Triforce of Courage from Link. The hero bests the beast, who captures Princess Hilda in a painting as well, and absorbs it to gain the Triforce of Wisdom. Yuga Ganon then attempts to take the Triforce of Courage again, but falls to the blade of the Master Sword, exploding in a burst of dark energy and releasing both Hilda and Zelda.

Breath of the Wild

The Throne Room is located in Zora's Domain in Breath of the Wild. It is where King Dorephan presides over the Zoras.

But, Master Link, you probably shouldn't speak to the elderly. Oops! Sorry for keeping you too long. You have business in the throne room, right? Please proceed there at your earliest convenience." — Rivan (Breath of the Wild)
