Kakariko Village in Ocarina of Time.
|Series||The Legend of Zelda series|
|First game||The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (1991)|
Kakariko Village is a location found in multiple Legend of Zelda video games, first appearing in The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. The village dramatically changes within each Zelda game - in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, the village is filled with locales while in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess it is turning into a Native American-type ghost town or filled with Sheikah like in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
The village's most notable appearance is arguably in Ocarina of Time, though as aforementioned it's appeared in multiple other games. The following is a list of them all -
- The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past -- SNES
- The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time -- Nintendo 64
- The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventure -- GameCube
- The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess -- Wii, GameCube
- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild -- Wii U, Nintendo Switch
Usually the village is portrayed as a relatively peaceful area compared to the dramatic happenings going elsewhere in Hyrule. However, in LttP, after obtaining the Master Sword, Zelda is captured and the town is put under martial guard as the knights patrol the village looking to apprehend Link with force.
In Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess, you are required to go through it in order to get to the dungeon ahead (Death Mountain in both cases), and while they're both the same location, they've changed over time.
In both Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess, a graveyard appears and plays a prominent role in the game (to some extent). It is regarded as the burial place of Hylian and Sheikah soldiers who died in battle. The gravekeeper is Dampe in Ocarina, though this isn't the case for Twilight Princess.
In both games, Poes can be captured/defeated in the graveyard.
In Breath of the Wild you are required to go inside of the village in order to meet Impa and being able to access the Locked Mementos and the Captured Memories quests, the village is more in a traditional japanese style to match the design of the Sheikah tribe.
