The Creepiest Things In The Legend of Zelda
Just Hold It
In “The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask,” "???," also known as the toilet ghost, reaches up from inside of a toilet and grabs you. Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto explained the inspiration behind “???,” revealing, "There are some ghost stories in Japan where — when you are sitting [on a] Japanese toilet — a hand is actually starting to grab you from beneath."
“The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess” wrings fresh terror out of mirror-based jump-scares. Yeta stares at her own reflection and transforms from a kind mythical creature into a fanged, red-eyed monster who screams "NOT TAKE MIRROR," shattering all of a room's windows with supernatural power and becoming Blizzeta, a "Twilight Ice Mass" that Link must fight.
In “Breath of the Wild,” Kilton isn't as overtly sinister as the Happy Mask Salesman in “Majora’s Mask,” until you notice that he only shows up at night, thinks that Fang and Bone is a great name for a shop, and only trades in black market monster organs. Only then do you realize it's the Happy Mask Salesman all over again.
Cubus Sisters
“The Phantom Hourglass'” Cubus Sisters are very unsettling. You find them lurking on board a ghost ship, and they give Link bad information directing him to chests that contain deadly foes. When you finally get all of the Cubus Sisters together in one place, they shed their mortal guises, show their demonic faces, and attack Link with their black magic.
The Well
In “The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time,” the Bottom of The Well is a disturbing dungeon, home to lumbering ReDeads, claw-like Wallmasters, creeping Skulltulas, and the Dead Hand, a zombie-like creature that uses disembodied hands to grab and consume its prey. It also has various coffins and caskets — and human arms scattered on the floor.
