link19If there’s a consistent theme across the Legend of Zelda franchise, it’s people who underestimate the Hero of Time based on his age, and are pretty damn rude about it, too.

Phantom Ganon

“Hey, kid, you did quite well… It looks like you may be gaining some slight skill… But you have defeated only my phantom… When you fight the real me, it won’t be so easy!”


“Hey you! ‘Mr. No Fairy!’ What’s your business with the Great Deku Tree? Without a fairy, you’re not even a real man! What? You’ve got a fairy? Say what? The Great Deku Tree actually summoned you? Whaaaaaaat?! Why would he summon you and not the Great Mido? I don’t believe you! You aren’t even fully equipped yet. How do you think you’re going to help the Great Deku Tree without both a sword and a shield ready?”


“Your clothes, they’re so different. Wait, are you from the forest, fairy boy?”


“You’re just a kid! The temple is no place for kids!”

Madame Aroma

“Oh dear, are you on a field trip?”

Princess Ruto

“You! Who are you?! I am Ruto, Princess of the Zoras. What?! Are you saying my father asked you to come here to save me? I’d never ask anyone to do such a thing! ‘Letter in a Bottle?’ I have no idea what you’re talking about! My father is worried about me? I don’t care! Anyway, I can’t go home right now. And you…Get out of here! Understand? Are you still hanging around here? I told you to go away!”

Hyrule Villagers

“Young children shouldn’t be walking the streets at night, go home and get to bed.”

The Rosa Sisters

“Ugh! Kid, don’t bother us!”

Koume and Kotake

“Look at that stupid kid! He came on his own to offer himself as a sacrifice for the great Ganondorf”


“There, there. You be a good boy and calm down. No need to bite! So! I bet you’re wondering, where are we?! Well, I’ll make you a deal. If you can get over here, I’ll tell you. Eee hee!
I found you! Oooh! Aren’t you scary? Eee hee! Are you sure you want to be doing that? Snarling and glaring at me? Well, that’s too bad… I was planning on helping you… if you were nice. Eee hee! That’s much better! You humans are obedient to a fault, aren’t you?”
