This is a list of cameos in games not from The Legend of Zelda that feature characters/references/or so on in the series itself.


Super Mario series

Kirby series

  • Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra- The Triforce is an item that can be found in "The Great Cave Offensive".
  • Kirby series - Kirby's sword ability strongly resembles Link. Upon getting the sword ability Kirby gets a green hat similar to Link's and when he has full life he is able to use a sword beam.

Wario series

  • WarioWare series - Many of 9-Volt's games are based on The Legend of Zelda series.
  • WarioWare D.I.Y. - Some of the pre-loaded sprites are from earlier Zelda games. Some music from The Legend of Zelda is also unlockable.

Final Fantasy series

In Final Fantasy 1 there is a town named "Elfheim." In this town there are three gravestones next to a building. The one on the far left has flowers in front of it and if you press A while looking at it, it says "Here lies Link." This makes sense because it is a town of elves and everyone is dressed like Link.

Non-Nintendo Titles


  • In Terraria, the Hero armour set strongly resembles Link, including a green hat, green tunic, and tights.
