One of the leading video games of the day is The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, of which we have offered you our first impressions this afternoon. The next installment in the saga aims to be one of the most important releases of the year, highlighting above all the freedom it will offer when playing, although we are looking forward to discovering what secrets it will hide.
The one that does hide a few is The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, another of the most acclaimed titles of the popular Nintendo franchise that is always worth going back and playing, even more so now that you have it available in the catalog from Nintendo Switch Online. In fact, if you are one of those who are going to download it to play or want to enjoy it again, you will be interested to know one of his greatest curiosities.
It turns out that the main villain of the saga is Ganondorf, but another of the biggest enemies that has a great role in Dark Link. Also known as Dark Link or Shadow Link, he has had to fight against him in a wide variety of games in the series, but one of his biggest appearances is precisely the one he has in Ocarina of Time.
The one who is the miniboss of the hated Water Temple is basically a reflection of Link, making the same movements that we do, which makes it somewhat difficult to damage him. What’s more, when you get a few hits, you may wonder, but how many times do you have to hit it? And that is precisely where the great curiosity lies.
The reason is because Dark Link, as a good shadow, has the same amount of hearts that we have at that moment. Therefore, if we arrive with four or five hearts, that is the life he would have, but if you are one of those who like to collect heart pieces to become more resistant and strong, then it will cost you even more to kill him.
In fact, it’s not the only time in the saga that something like this has happened, because in The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds it’s time to defeat Dark Link, who has the same hearts as the player himself. Instead, the life of the rest of Dark Link varies completely depending on the gamesuch as in Zelda II: The Adventure of Link which requires exactly eight hits to remove.
