An Ocarina is a wind instrument similar in nature to a flute. They have a bulbous body shape and a mouthpiece that protrude from the side. The average ocarina features between four and twelve finger holes and is most commonly made of ceramic material.

In Video Games

In video games, the ocarina is most commonly associated with The Legend of Zelda franchise as an important item in both The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. In Ocarina of Time, Link receives the Fairy Ocarina from his friend Saria. This Ocarina has no magical ability whatsoever, except for an effect triggered by one song. Later, Link receives the Ocarina of Time from Zelda. The various songs played on this Ocarina have an affect on the world, such as changing the time and weather, or warping the user to another location.

In The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, Link uses the Ocarina of Time once again to affect the nature of the world.


The Ocarina of Time can play the following songs:

  • Zelda's Lullaby: Zelda's Lullaby is the first song taught in Ocarina of Time. This song can be used to prove that Link is an envoy of the royal family, and can cause a change in the world when played on or near a Triforce symbol.
  • Saria's Song: This song calls Link's friend Saria for advice. It also helps Darunia cheer up when he is faced with a Goron problem.
  • The Sun Song: This song changes the time to midnight or noon, depending on whether it is day or night.
  • The Song of Storms: This song causes a thunderstorm to start in the sky above Link's head.
  • Epona's Song: This song summons Link's horse, Epona.
  • The Song of Time: This song opens the gate to the Triforce in the Temple of Time, and can also change the location of certain blocks in dungeons. In Majora's Mask, Link must use this song to reset the game's timer back to the beginning of the first day.
  • The Minuet of Forest: This song warps Link to the Forest Temple.
  • The Bolero of Fire: This song warps Link to the Fire Temple.
  • The Serenade of Water: This song warps Link to the Water Temple.
  • The Nocturne of Shadow: This song warps Link to the Shadow Temple.
  • The Requiem of Spirit: This song warps Link to the Spirit Temple.
  • The Prelude of Light: This song warps Link to the Temple of Time.
