Find The Real Master Sword in This Ocarina of Time Tribute

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Expect the unexpected

For gamers infatuated with iconic moments in gaming, who also happen to have a camera and a bit of film-making expertise, there's only one place to go: YouTube. While there's plenty of appalling rubbish on everyone's favourite video-sharing site, there's also some good work that re-creates memorable sequences with a twist.

One of these is a recent video from user Warialasky, which mimics the experience of discovering and taking the Master Sword in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, prompting unexpected results. This takes a key moment from the game and re-interprets it, so if for some crazy reason you haven't played it in any form then look away from spoilers now. In fact, avoid the comments section too.

Being a YouTube video with production restrictions, there are some little continuity errors despite the fact that it's rather good — but this is Zelda, continuity isn't a strong point of the series — so see if you can spot them all.

It's more like when Link finds the Master Sword deep in the Lost Woods in A Link to the Past if you ask me. ;)

Eh, I thought it was light on the spoilers. Pretty funny how he had to pull out the sword three times.

The production values jump around too much, the Master Sword itself looks great and do two of the pullings, but the third one looks like it was very cheaply and amateurishly produced in an introductory 3D animation package.

Continuity errors? I didn't see any! Everyone knows that crazy stuff happens when you draw the Master Sword! :)

I'd be pretty freaked out too if pulling the sword turned me into a crappy animation. :P

@Mr_LztheBleh Well, he really should have aged ;) I agree though, I think it's a fool who tries to apply logic and sense to almost anything in the Zelda universe, just look at the crazy timeline!

@ThomasBW84

actually, unless he was already old enough to draw the master sword, then he shouldn't have aged at all ;) if you want aging, they should have put a kid in that video.

The second time he pulls the sword kinda looks like Xenoblade Chronicles when Shulk's soul is floating about or whatever

@NintendoLand The console wars one was awesome. I thought Xbox and Playstation were going to battle it out in FPS mode for a bit and then Wii would snipe them out instantly.

The same guy made a trailer for a movie version of Tetris. IMO, it blows this out of the water!

@RupeeClock: The sword is the one thing that bugged me most about the video. Why the hell is it CGI? A cheap plastic sword would have looked better than that.
