Princess Zelda Render Princess Zelda Smash Bros WiiU 3DS Art Princess Zelda Hyrule Warriors Render Art

Princess Zelda, like Princess Peach is often abducted by the antagonist of the game series she is a character from. In her case it is Ganon who is trying to use her to obtain and use the power of the Tri-Force etc.

She became a more interesting character with the time however and in the Super Smash Bros. games she is a playable character. She is actually a part of the Legend of Zelda games since the first part already and appears in some form in almost all Zelda games, even in Majora’s Mask as a memory from Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

At a few times, Princess Zelda is used to work for the antagonists of the game, like in Twilight Princess and Link has to fight her. You can see more about that version in our big Legend in Zelda art tribute “Link’s Blacklist”

Her looks change a lot with almost every title which results in a very varied interest by artists.

In this gallery you can see some of the best Princess Zelda fan art ever made alongside a few of the official illustrations by Nintendo and hopefully some nice cosplays of her as well soon.

“Oh my Goddesses! She’s mine! I can’t let anyone else to take her!” so I picked Princess Zelda”


That’s what Queen Zelda, from Chile and a big Legend of Zelda fan like myself wrote when she submitted her take on Princess Zelda in her design from Ocarina of Time for our Video game Character Database 🙂

She draws a ton of LoZ related stuff, including NSFW fan art as well, so be prepared if you have a look at her complete gallery which I totally recommend. After Princess Zelda, she also drew Sheik for our project here!
