Easter Eggs: The Legend of Zelda
The vast and wonderful kingdom of Hyrule, who has not visited this place at least once in his life? We all know their different races: the noble Zora, the proud Goron, or the brave Hylians. The cozy Kakariko Villa, the dangerous Enchanted Desert, or the majestic Hyrule Castle. But, did you know that Chain chomp (the famous enemy that surely gave us more than a scare in Super Mario 64) appears as an enemy in the game The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past? Or that in that same game we can find a painting of Mario in various houses of Kakariko? It is but a small part of the Easter eggs that hides the great Kingdom of Hyrule, and that today we are going to reveal.
The first game in the series to appear on portable consoles was loaded with secrets. Again, we found references to the Super Mario Bros saga, which from then on would be very frequent; the main characters of the platform saga had some “replicas” within the game:
- – Mario has a slight resemblance to Tarin.
- – The cuckoo keeper reminds us of Luigi, with his mustache and his green garment.
- – Christine, the girl who appears in the love letter addressed to Mr. Write (this, in turn, is a cameo by Will Wright from the Sim City video game), is blatantly similar to someone …
- The Mamu frog is similar to the Wart frog from Super Mario Bros 2, in addition to the fact that Mamu is the Japanese name for Wart;
- Many enemies of the Super Mario Bros saga made their appearance in the game, such as the Goombas, the piranha plants and the Shy Guys;
- In one of the minigames we could get a Yoshi doll as a prize.
There were also a couple of references to Kirby, another very popular Nintendo game:
- The Sea Urchins remind us of the Fatties, common enemies of Kirby;
- An enemy called Anti-Kirby who appears in the eagle tower and whose attack consists of trying to swallow us is identical to someone you may have already thought …
Ocarina of Time
The favorite of most of the fans of the saga also came loaded with Easter Eggs, although due to the popularity of the game, you probably already know many of them:
- On the second floor of the Dodongo Cavern there is a sign on a stone that we can also find in the star fountain of Super Mario 64;
- Talon is once again a reference to the best known plumber, Mario;
- Ingo is also once again a reference to the second best known, Luigi;
- Malon and Talon wear Bowser’s face brooch on their chests;
- Fox McCloud’s ship Arwing can be unlocked in-game with the use of hacks. Apparently it was deleted from the game for unknown reasons, but its codes are still inside it, so if you manage to recover them you will be able to see it fly all over Kokiri. But beware! Which is also capable of firing laser beams:
– The shape of the Stone of Agony is similar to that of the Rumble Pak for Nintendo 64:
– In Ocarina of Time 3D we can find several posters of the video game The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, in the Lon Lon Ranch, the Gerudo Fortress and the Bombchu store.
