Favorite Zelda Intro/ Title/ Opening Scene

Pretty self-explanitory. Which game has your favorite Intro/ Title/ Opening Scene, or, what I like to call, "Press Start Screens"?

Personally, my favorite is Ocarina of Time, because it's all so mellow at first, and then takes a turn and gets pretty epic at the end with the whole "Spirit Temple" scene, it leaves you thinking.. "wait, wtf!? I need to play this now!" And the music....... is just,....... breathtaking.
My second choice however would be LA, I mean, come on. Just epic.

Here they are to help refresh your memory :

"The Legend of Zelda"


"Zelda II: The Adventure of Link"


"The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past"


"The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening"


"The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time"

(This video is missing the part at the end where Link is in the Spirit Temple with Nabooru and gets attacked by Koume and Kotake, so don't forget about that )

"The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask"


"The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages"


"The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons"


"The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords"


"The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker"


"The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures"


"The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap"


"The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess"


"The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass"


"The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks"



Vote away!

MM. I love how everything seems to be so nice and happy. And WHAM! Skull kid shows up and that creepy-weird music starts playing.

Re: Favorite Zelda Intro/ Title/ Opening Scene

As much as I like the 3D console Zelda games, a Link to the Past's opening, in my opinion, is takes the cake. The intro depicts Hyrule's dark history of greed and hatred. The seal once thought forever is threatened and the King of Hyrule is dispatched. As the final hour is approching and as the last candle of hope extinguishes, everyone wonders, who will save us?

Re: Favorite Zelda Intro/ Title/ Opening Scene

What a tough decision to make D:

I love all of them for different reasons... I love the background story of the LoZ, AoL, and ALttP, but the artistic simplicity of TWW was refreshing... Ocarina is special just because it's the first Zelda I played, but I've seen it so many times now lol... I love the intro to LA because it was just epic... And MM was awesome too, if only because I loved watching little Link sit in different areas of the town swinging his feet :3

I'm surprised to find myself wanting to go with Twilight Princess on this one. While it's not my favorite of the series, there was so much anticipation for it, and I remember a lot of us seeing the intro video as a sort of teaser before we really realized it was the title screen. The solemn beauty combined with the music brings tears to my eyes more often than not as I was just blown away by how it just... I can't even explain it, it was just beautiful.

I can't wait to see what Skyward Sword will be like ^_^

By the way, thanks for posting the videos for reference! It must have been time-consuming to do so

Re: Favorite Zelda Intro/ Title/ Opening Scene

I really liked Majoras Mask opening theme.

I thought it was kind of cool just showing some scenes in Clock Town and out of Clock town and putting it into a slide show. And the theme music they used for it actually fitted well for it as well. I thought it was clever.

Re: Favorite Zelda Intro/ Title/ Opening Scene

Zelda II. The classic intro, then avoiding the main theme altogether in favor of a more serene theme, that becomes more intense. Repeat.

I like it mostly for the music.

ALttP. I love the music too much to choose anything else.

Re: Favorite Zelda Intro/ Title/ Opening Scene

My vote whole-heartedly goes to The Wind Waker. Not only is the music breath-taking, but I love the visual of Outset Island, and then Link in his villager gear, staring out at the ocean. I always pictured this as the day before his birthday (when the game started), with Link symbolically standing on the precipice of adventure and maturity.

Re: Favorite Zelda Intro/ Title/ Opening Scene

Wind Waker is my favorite. I remember seeing it at a young age and falling in love with the theme. Though it's simple it sets the tone for the game, and it just gives off a good vibe.

I say Majora's Mask. I really enjoy the music and a look at Clock Town before Skull Kid came along.

Re: Favorite Zelda Intro/ Title/ Opening Scene

OoT. The way the music and the morning setting blend together just hits me a certain way. I camp a lot, and that small period of time when the sun is just rising is my favorite time of the day to experience. I remember backpacking on top of numerous mountains when the sky was right between night and day. It wasn't light, yet it wasn't dark. I dunno, calm's the best way I can describe it. That intro just reminded me of some of the feelings I experienced during that time.

Re: Favorite Zelda Intro/ Title/ Opening Scene

Twilight Princess with Ocarina of time as an close second. They are really similiar so it's hard to to decide but I love the howling at the end with midna's theme(lament?) in the background.
Plus, I don't know if it counts but the trailer that comes after a while with the orchestral score is epic

Re: Favorite Zelda Intro/ Title/ Opening Scene

I'm gonna say Majora's Mask. I can still remember the creeped out feeling this whole game gave me as a kid. The intro doesn't really help in making the player feel relaxed, too.

Also, A Link To The Past intro was nice too.

Re: Favorite Zelda Intro/ Title/ Opening Scene

Majoras Mask for me. For some reason I also really liked the Minish Cap screen.

OOT is another close favorite because of so many memories

I hope they make a good one for Skyward Sword. I have high hopes for that game and I really hope they deliver.

Majora's Mask, I love how the music starts off normal, then evolves ninto something twisted and evil. :3

Re: Favorite Zelda Intro/ Title/ Opening Scene

Majora's Mask. Really gives you a look into what to expect this game to be like. It sets the mood and makes you want to begin playing.

OOT is my 2nd choice though..Could listen to that music for hours.
