Temple of Courage

Welcome to the Temple of Courage, where various characters from the Legend of Zelda series battle out on a semi-weekly basis! You, the people, are the deciding factors in these matches. Functionally, all of these battles are popularity contests and not "battles" as such. For instance, in a boss vs. boss fight, we suggest that you vote for the one you like the most rather than whether or not one enemy would beat another in a legit fight. This is only a suggestion, though.

If you have an account and have at least 50 mainspace edits, you can suggest a fight or vote or comment on others on the suggestions sub-article.


  • You may vote for your favorite or who you think would win in a competition between the two combatants that week.
  • You may only vote once.
  • If you are a user, please include your vote in the user section. If you are not a user, please include your vote in the anonymous section. However, any votes put in the anonymous sections will only count as a half vote.
  • When a new fight is created (the process should take no longer than a week, give or take a couple of days), the votes from the last fight will be totaled and winner decided.
  • Please sign your vote (unless you want to be counted as an anonymous vote) with a link to your username after your voting text.
  • Don't try to rig the votes by entering multiple votes; these pages are regularly patrolled and you WILL face consequences if you are caught.

Week 142: Deku Princess vs. Princess Ruto

Deku Princess Artwork
Princess Ruto Artwork
LLLLLLLLLLLLADIES AND GENTLEMENNNNNNN!!! Zeldapedia brings to you the 142nd Easter Spectacular, brought to you by Burlap Sacks 'R' Us! And to celebrate whatever this holiday is about, we have summoned forth its very embodiment for this week's battle! Because when I think Easter, I think... PRINCESSES! Let's see what these two monarchical figures are all about.

In the whatsits corner, we have the princess of the Deku Scrubs that inhabit the region of Woodfall in the land of Termina. When the once comparatively clean swamp water of her domain became contaminated, she immediately took action and headed towards Woodfall Temple, the swamp's source. However, she is taken captive by the evil spirit that has taken over the temple, and the innocent monkey with whom she had embarked on this mission is mistakenly blamed for this. The hero is eventually caught up in this series of unfortunate events, and is able to cleanse the swamp water, rescue the princess from the evil Odolwa (and return her, in a most unusual fashion, to her home) and prove the monkey's innocence, but not before the Deku Princess lets her hasty father hear what's what. THIS. IS. THE DEEEEEEEEEKU PRINCESSSSSSSSSSS!!!

In the blahblunsd corner is the princess of the Zoras that reside in Zora's Domain in eastern Hyrule. When her people's patron deity, Lord Jabu-Jabu begins to act strangely, she loses possession of the ancestral Zora's Sapphire when checking on him. As she has done so many times before, she ventures inside of Jabu-Jabu to find her lost possession. The hero finds a message in a bottle written by the princess, which he shows to her father, allowing him to pass through to the fountain where Jabu-Jabu resides. Inside Jabu-Jabu, he does indeed meet Ruto, and inadvertently becomes betrothed to her when she gives him the Zora's Sapphire. Seven years later, the two meet again, and the Zora princess is awakened as the Sage of Water, destined to save Hyrule. THIS. IS. PRIIIIINCESSSSSS RUUUUUUUUUUUUUTOOOOOO!!!

The Easter Bunny himself is in attendance tonight to witness this spectacle. We hope that all audience members have brought along protective gear to prevent life-threatening damage sustained from any eventual showers of chocolate eggs. With that said... LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLET'S GET RRRRRRRRRREADY TO RUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUMMMMMMMMMMBLE!!!

Votes for Deku Princess

  1. Bit of a toss-up here, actually. I like them both. However, Ruto, as we all know by know, is part of an Escort Mission, and it's not one of the good ones. That and she's a bit of an annoying brat and her becoming the sage was as obvious as it can get. The Deku Princess, while not having a lot of character traits or anything, just struck me as a more likable character and actually a semi-efficient ruler. And while she too was technically part of an Escort Mission, it was one of those that was fun, and actually took me a while to connect the dots on what to do. That's thinking outside the box. Ruto loses on some glaring character flaws here, I'm afraid. --AuronKaizer! 00:04, April 25, 2011 (UTC)
  2. Although I like Zoras as well as Deku (no way), I found Ruto herself and carrying her around a bit annoying. At least Link can carry the Deku Princess in a bottle, which is much more original than the letter in the bottle that Ruto had. --DekuStick Master 00:13, April 25, 2011 (UTC)
  3. She's wearing clothes. And I can play the Deku Palace theme on flute. So, yeah. --BassJapas 00:14, April 25, 2011 (UTC)
  4. She does not try to marry Link. -Isdrakthül 00:16, April 25, 2011 (UTC)
  5. Actually shows respect for Link as someone not bound to serve her upon first meeting.--RedeadhunterRedeadContributions Edits 00:39, April 25, 2011 (UTC)
  6. Love ability to carry person around in bottle. Also, Ruto ticks me off with her "How in considerate! You shouldn't have left me behind! If you're a man, act like one!" (Sorry, but, I was too busy killing a giant parasitic tentacle to hold you.) Also, I found it very annoying to have to carry her everywhere. (Although I enjoyed throwing her at jellyfish!) She also was extremely bratty, especially when you think about the fact that I carried her everywhere in that stupid dungeon (apparently she can't walk on her own), saved her from the big octo and Barinade, and then she yells at me for being late! (I didn't know we had set a time to meet up again) Then, she not only shows me very little gratitude, she also has to trick me into getting engaged to her! I think I'll end it Metallica-style: Specially Huge Amounts of Hatred and Cess-Ridden Filth to the Idiot that Follows: Princess Ruto! LINk11

This looks pretty one-sided. But I don't think it's because of people liking Deku Princess(she's barely a character), but because everyone just hates Ruto so much. LINk11

Week 141: Megaton Hammer vs. Skull Hammer

Megaton Hammer
"'Megaton Hammer!'"
Megaton Hammer

14.5 > 9.5
Skull Hammer

LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLADIES AND GENTLEMEN!!! I am pleased to announced the 141st fight in the TEMPLE. OF. COOOOUUUUUURRRRRRRAAAAAAAAGE!!! This week's battle is between two large hammers that our hero picks up during his travels around the world. Let's meet our contestants now.

In the brown corner is an ancient tool once wielded by the Hero of the Gorons. Found in the boiling Fire Temple, this silver hammer can be used to depress heavily-rusted switches found throughout the dungeons of Hyrule. This handy tool may also be used to uncover entrances to hidden grottos and smash rocks, and even use it much like his trusty sword. Weighing in at a megaton and/or capable of producing shockwaves whose force equals the same, THIS. IS. THE MEEEGAAAATON HAMMERRRRRRRRRRRR!!!

In the light slate gray corner is a ghastly-looking hammer, left behind as battle spoils from the hero's battle with Phantom Ganon in the Forsaken Fortress. The hammer's primary usage is pounding down wooden stakes ordinarily unyielding to regular force. It may also be used in battle, sending out devastating shockwaves. When used in conjunction with Ice Arrows, it may be used to defeat the enemy outright by smashing their frozen bodies. THIS. IS. THE SSSKUUUULLLLLLL HAMMMERRRRRRRRRR!!!

Which of these heavy hammers will win? And for that matter, how will they even fight if there's no one to hold them? I guess we'll see in the ring! LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLET'S GET RRRRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEAAAAADY TO RRRRRRRRRRRUMMMMBLE!!!

Votes for Megaton Hammer

  1. BA-DOOM --BassJapas 01:11, April 19, 2011 (UTC)
  2. Hammer used to in ancient times to slay a dragon who is later revived and beaten once again with the same hammer, is much more intense than that random one over there. Plus it looks brand new after all these years and doesn't have the slightest bit of corrosion it seems. --EveryDayJoe45 (talk) 01:24, April 19, 2011 (UTC)
  3. It took me until just now to realize this, but the artwork of the Megaton Hammer looks very similar to the Hammer from Fire Emblem. Guess what I've been playing lately? Jedimasterlink (talk) 07:30, April 19, 2011 (UTC)
  4. Love me my megaton hammer! Cause Dark Link to just sit quietly and not defend himself! Guaranteed not rust, even if left in a box for countless centuries after having dragon gore all over it! SMASH! SMASH! SMASH! LINk11
  5. Megaton Hammer was one of my fav weapons in OoT! Plus the Fire Temple was awesome!-LinksGirlfriend
  6. *Bang bang* Link's silver hammer came down upon Volvagia's head. *Clang clang* Link's silver hammer made sure that he was dead. --AuronKaizer! 14:25, April 19, 2011 (UTC)
  7. It looks better, and makes more sense as an actual hammer... --DekuStick Master 20:27, April 19, 2011 (UTC)
  8. Anyone up for a game of Whack-a-dragon? --Hydropanda (talk) 23:16, April 21, 2011 (UTC)
  9. Its epic, nuff said Lincas1Vaati (The Minish Cap) 20:12, April 22, 2011 (UTC)
  10. It's a goron treasure. And I like OoT better than WW, lame excuse, but I like the Megaton Hammer better anyway --Breakin'Sleazer 19:06, April 24, 2011 (UTC)

Anonymous votes

  1. One word: Volvagia
  2. It just reminds me of The Legend of Zelda: Abridged Series. Go Mega-Crush (MC) Hammer!!
  3. Even though the skull hammer has a better design, I like the shinyness of the Megaton Hammer. It was fun to slam it against a wall and see Walltullas come down..
  4. You can smash Soul Calibur characters with this one :)
  6. I agree with anon number 2. GO MC HAMMER!!!
  7. Ocarina of time is just cooler then wind waker! and besides, who does'nt love gorons!!
  8. The Megaton Hammer (or Megacrush Hammer in The Legend of Zelda: The Abridged Series) can be used for Ocarina of Time's famous crouch-stab glitch. The Skull Hammer can't be used for any glitches besides the dumb stop-and-swap glitch.
  9. MEH.

Votes for Skull Hammer

  1. It's shaped like a Skull. It's found after defeating PHANTOM GANON. It can freakin' flatten enemies. I mean, come on, what more could you want in a hammer? -Minish Link 01:11, April 19, 2011 (UTC)
  2. In my opinion, anything with a skull is awesome. Hammers are also awesome. Therefore, the Skull Hammer would be double awesome. I also renamed it as such as the "Double Awesome Hammer of Skullz". You know you're all jealous of my super naming skills... :D - McGillivray227 01:18, April 19, 2011 (UTC)
  3. It can flatten enemies, can send enemies flying Incredible distances, and is skull-themed. -Isdrakthül 01:39, April 19, 2011 (UTC)
  4. I love the animation of the skull hammer. Also it is bigger and better designed than the megaton one.--User:CerberuΣ GR 30px-The Guardian of Underworld 07:27, April 20, 2011 (UTC)
  5. I really like the Megaton Hammer, but I love playing baseball with Miniblins more. Wait... BANG! New distance record! --Ricorum (talk) 15:13, April 20, 2011 (UTC)
  6. I don't have any idea what animal's skull was used, but I WANT THAT HAMMER.--RedeadhunterRedeadContributions Edits 02:14, April 21, 2011 (UTC)
  7. It has more character. --Birdman5589 (talk) 03:35, April 21, 2011 (UTC)
  8. First off, let me say that I'm a huge fan of OoT, and I think it is a vastly superior game to WW. That said, let's compare. Megaton Hammer: useless outside the dungeon you get it in, very few unique interactions w/ enemies, looks lame, less reach than the Master Sword. Skull Hammer: decent amount of use in the Overworld, interacts differently w/ most enemies, is a visually impressive GIANT F***ING HAMMER W/ A SKULL on it, has more reach than your sword. As cool as all the fanboys think Volvagia (and anything associated w/ him) is, the Megaton Hammer really was pretty useless outside the Fire Temple. Knives182 (talk) 02:36, April 22, 2011 (UTC)

Week 140: Ilia vs. Marin

Marin Artwork
7.5 < 15.5
Marin Artwork

LLLLLLLLLLLLLADIES AND GENTLEMEN!!! I welcome you to the 140th fight in the TEMPLE. OF. COUUUUUUURRRRRRRRRRRAAAAGE!!! This week's contestants are two feminine friends of our protagonist. Let's meet them now.

In the green corner is our hero's childhood friend who hails from Ordon Village. When the hero hurts his horse, Epona, while jumping fences, she takes her to the healing Ordon Spring, but is taken away by evil forces. After her rescue, she is revealed to suffer from amnesia, and our hero attempts to retrace her journey to restore her lost memories. When he successfully does so, she gives the hero the Horse Call, which allows the hero to call upon his mount from most locations. THIS. IS. IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIILIAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!

In the azure corner is another fine lady, residing on Koholint Island. When our hero is shipwrecked, she saves him and brings him to her home, where he mistakes her for Princess Zelda upon waking up. Subsequently, the hero encounters her many times throughout his quest, and learns from her the "Ballad of the Wind Fish", which is an important key to his escape from the island. At one point, she directly accompanies the hero in order to awaken a sleeping Walrus that blocks his path. During the very end, her greatest wish may be fulfilled depending on the actions of you, the player. THIS. IS. MARIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIN!!!

Who will win this battle (presumably over our hero)? I can't be sure, so LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLET'S GET RRRRRRRRRRRRREADYYYYYYYYY TO RRRRRRRRRRRRUMMMMMMBLE!!!

Votes for Ilia

  1. Ilia was creepy and annoying, yes, but that just made it more satisfying when Link killed her in the cutscene about the Interlopers. -Isdrakthül 00:14, April 11, 2011 (UTC)
  2. She may be crazy and evil but she doesn't make you drag her all over the world just so some mouse can take her picture. Also Ilia is only verbally abusive towards Link where Marin actually becomes physically abusive in her quest for being photographed. --Birdman5589 (talk) 21:11, April 11, 2011 (UTC)
  3. I enjoyed swearing at her and laughing when she got kidnapped. I'm not sadistic... --BassJapas 23:30, April 11, 2011 (UTC)
  4. Played Twilight Princess silly and LA was just a gameboy game I played before I could even speak English. Qua design Marin wins, but Ilia was more interesting in my opinion.Mido did what?! (talk) 14:38, April 12, 2011 (UTC)
  5. I feel so sorry for Illia when she loses her memory! Besides, I never played Link's Awakening. Elfpixieprincess
  6. I haven't played LA. Also Illia seems a lot nicer than some girl who dumped Link to become a seagull (I mean, what? Seagull?). Also Illia is cuter. CABAL (talk)

Anonymous votes

  1. Never played LA.
  2. Link's Awakening SUCKS. Twilight Princess on the other hand, is a great game. I would have voted for Marin because Ilia is useless if Link's Awakening was even mediocre.
  3. Just because.

Votes for Marin

  1. Marin kicks ass, dude. Seagulls ftw. -Minish Link 23:57, April 10, 2011 (UTC)
  2. Marin is awesome - she has awesome hair, she sings an awesome song, she lives on an awesome island, with awesome bros, and at the end she either gets wings (awesome) or becomes a seagull (awesome). She also has a crush on Link, d'aww. Marin also has some epic dialogue. Ilia is NOT awesome. She is ugly, stupid, she STOLE MY DAMN HORSE, she hits on Link and Link is like, WHOA HO, GTFO. She's also ugly and stupid. And human. And annoying. And she's creepy in that cutscene and SHE FALLS UPSIDE DOWN. Ilia is evil! -Stars talk Starssprite.gif 00:01, April 11, 2011 (UTC)
  3. Ilia was weird. --EveryDayJoe45 (talk) 00:16, April 11, 2011 (UTC)
  4. I Like Marin's hair.. ILIA IS WEIRD!! Who gets so mad just because there's a cut on a horse?? I Know who! CRAZY, WEIRD Ilia!! I also agree with Stars, she's creepy in the cutscene where she falls upside down. Marin is much better then her!-LinksGirlfriend
  5. Marin is not going to win this because people don't like Ilia. She is going to win this because she is the embodiment of pure brilliance. I really don't think it would be an understatement to say she is one of if not the best female character in the series. Shes just a total win all round Oni Dark Link 17:28, April 11, 2011 (UTC)
  6. I like seeing the walrus fall down. Stalchild21
  7. ... --DekuStick Master 21:05, April 11, 2011 (UTC)
  8. Marin is one of the first characters in the series with legitimate character development. Case closed. Jedimasterlink (talk) 03:02, April 12, 2011 (UTC)
  9. "You got Marin!" should be all I need to say. But in case it's not, I agree w/ Jedi that Marin displayed decent character development, and with others that the Ballad of the Wind Fish she sings is awesome. Ilia, meanwhile, was a mediocre, undeveloped character at best, and an annoying one at worst. I guess it's not really her fault...being an amnesiac for most of the game makes it kind of hard to have a personality. Also, by the time she gives you the Horse Whistle, it's totally useless as you're already warping everywhere. Back to Marin, she made me feel really special for beating the game without dying, a tradition whose demise I lament. Plus, Marin was obviously the inspiration for Malon, who is also made of awesome. In short, MARIN, & anyone who thinks anything else is clearly wrong about everything, ever. Knives182 (talk) 04:12, April 12, 2011 (UTC)
  10. Marin helps you in your quest multiple times, and is the reason you are still alive at the beginning of LA. Illia impedes your progress repeatedly and is the whole reason why the children got kidnapped. Need I say more? --Hydropanda (talk) 02:35, April 13, 2011 (UTC)
  11. Per me. As in, my opinion during the earlier ToC fight in which Marin was featured. I've nothing further to add. --AuronKaizer! 15:21, April 13, 2011 (UTC)
  12. Marin Forever. --Ricorum (talk) 22:43, April 13, 2011 (UTC)
  13. She was a far more interesting character, who actually seemed fleshed-out and made it feel like the game's writers actually wanted to make a character we could enjoy learning about. She's also a good singer, and she makes for some hilarious scenes in LA(though I cannot unsee the scene where Link holds her over his head like an item, all the while staring up with his mouth wide open). Little Orphan AnnieIlia wasn't unlikeable, but she just came across as bland and one-dimentional, almost like the game's designers were merely trying to give the shippers ANOTHER girl to pair up with Link in Twilight Princess. That's how many, five now? Sir Real (talk)

  1. Somehow, Ilia's face looks awkward.. Besides, I love the Ballad of the Wind Fish, especially the version they made for and left out of Super Smash Bros. Brawl. And Marin's cute too.
  2. MEH.
  3. . Let's see...crazy lady who gives you an item that's pretty much useless since you can warp wherever you want to go and flips out over a tiny little scratch on a horse, or super special awesome lady who sings the best song in the Zelda series EVER, has more of a background, and helps you out more? My vote's going to Marin.
  4. I don't have anything agains Ilia, but Marin sings better and HELPS Link
  5. Most definitely Marin. I liked Illia but she didn't have a much of a story or as much character as Marin. Marin is also much nicer and prettier.

Peanut Gallery

girl fight!

Catfight, indeed. I forgot to put this in my vote (anonymous vote #2 on Ilia's side), but Marin is also insane. Why would ANYbody want to turn into a seagull? An eagle or a falcon would be a much better choice for if you want to be a bird., if you're going to edit the peanut gallery, please double space between comments. Otherwise, it looks like one comment. Anyway, I'd like you to elaborate on your unfounded hatred of Link's Awakening and Marin. Had you actually paid attention to the game, as well as the behavior of birds, you would notice that Marin doesn't just want to fly, she wants to be able to leave the island and travel across the sea. You know, where you see gulls? I don't think it's all that common to see an eagle or a falcon flying out to sea. I'm sorry if I sound like a prick, but I just can't stand to see someone spew hatred at something I love without even giving reasons. Sir Real (talk)

I see your point, Sir Real. I still don't like Marin or Link's Awakening, because I get annoyed when someone greets me with "THIEF!" when she's supposedly my friend. Also, Marin reminds me to much of annoying, seagull-fetish little sister Aryll from WW, and she just annoys the hell out of me. LINk11
