A series as popular and long-lasting as the Legend of Zelda is sure to have some interesting facts, backstory, and secrets along the way. Youtuber WatchMojo.com has created a list of their top 10 Zelda facts. Some of these, such as Zelda being named after Zelda Fitzgerald and the (still controversial!) timeline split after Ocarina of Time, are pretty well-known to fans of the series. However, the video does highlight a few other lesser-known facts. For instance, the 2nd quest in the original Legend of Zelda was basically an afterthought, added in after the game was completed. Also, you can actually almost beat the first game without ever obtaining the sword!
What other facts made WatchMojo.com’s list? And what did they rank as their top Zelda fact? You can check out the video below or click here to view it on YouTube. Also, feel free to leave your favorite Zelda facts in the comments!
