Plot

Link is a Hylian that lives in Karariko Village, but his peaceful life soon ends when his childhood friend, Princess Zelda, goes missing after a walk together around Castle Town. The blame is put on Link,who then vows to find Zelda. Soon, Link meets an old man who tells that he can help Link on his quest. He gives Link the Master Sword and a shield, and tells he's been keeping it safe if Ganondorf were to return. So, Link sets out an adventure to rescue Princess Zelda, get the Triforce and defeat Ganondorf. Meanwhile, Ganondorf gets a report from one of his henchmen, that a Hylian is planning to stop his reign of terror. Ganondorf orders his minions to bring him Link's head on a silver plate.

Link, meanwhile is instructed by the old man whose name is Rauru, to obtain three medallions, which are kept into three temples - one in a deep forest, another one in a mountain, and the last one, under a frozen lake.

Link first ventures in the Forest Temple, which is guarded by a child-like woman named Saria who is playing an instrument similar to that one Zelda gave to Link when he was little. Saria is playing a beautiful song, whom she teaches to Link as it is useful to leave the temple. After facing several skeleton knights known as Stalfos and capturing four ghosts of a quartet of sisters, known as the Poes. Link faces (seemingly) Ganondorf, riding on a horse, holding a lance and wearing a horned mask. Link first tries to attack him, but then discovers he is intangible. When "Ganondorf" attacks him with magic bolts, Link figures that the way to fight them is to volley the blasts with either his sword or his shield. Link turns the fight into an even sided match until "Ganondorf" finally loses all of its stamina and is hit by one of his own blasts. It falls to the ground and dissolves, leaving the medallion behind. Link thinks the fight is finally over, until he remembers that he has two other medallions to obtain. The real Ganondorf suddenly appears before him, proving the other Ganondorf to be a simple puppet. Link tries to fight him but the real Ganondorf grabs the blade and throws it to the ground. He tells Link he is no match for him. Link once again tries to attack him, this time with his bare hand, but Ganondorf disappears.

As Link gets out from the temple... He meets with a peculiar young woman in a ninja outfit, whose name is Sheik...
