Top 10 Legend of Zelda Ghouls and Ghosts

In the spirit of the season, I’ll be paying tribute to ghosts of a more pixelated nature in the first of three weekly articles leading up to the release of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds on November 22. The renowned series has no shortage of lovably ghoulish personalities who have spent years shuffling about the mortal world of Hyrule, waiting for their day in the spotlight.

I guess someone else you could add would be the flute boy from link to the past. Always felt sorry for him

Just a heads up, the Hero's Shade is confirmed to be the Ocarina of Time version of Link.

It was specified in the Hyrule Historia that he is a the spirit of the Hero of Time, and teaches Link his sword techniques because he regrets not being remembered. This article is just about the games... no need to get overly technical and confuse people who haven't read it. Besides, it gave me an excuse to throw in a little humor.

Or, to put it another way, Hyrule Historia basically DENIED the fan-theory that the Hero's Shade was OoT Link.

Anyway, on topic, the only time I was ever genuinely "spooked" by something in a Zelda game... it was in Ikana Canyon. Just... that whole quarter of the game. So damned creepy.

To Xof: I just looked it up to make sure I remembered right. I wouldn't say it denies the fan theories, but it does somewhat contradict later games. "The spirit of Link's ancestor, the Hero of Time, teaches him his secrets. Ever since returning to the Child Era, the swordsman has lamented the fact that he was not remembered as a hero."

And personally I think the creepiest things in any Zelda game are the Shadow Temple theme music and Dead Hand.
