Cadence is one of the main protagonists in Cadence of Hyrule.


Cadence is the daughter of a famous treasure hunter who went missing one day after searching for a magical golden lute. While trying to find her father, Cadence fell into a massive crypt controlled by a dark magician known as the NecroDancer and had her heart separated from her body. She was then forced to traverse the many dungeons of the crypt and slay the NecroDancer's minions, her every movement timed with the beat of her heart.

Through the power of the Triforce, Cadence is transported to Hyrule, where she awakens either Link or Zelda while searching for a way to return home.[1]


Her name is a reference to Cadence, a musical term.

  1. 1.0 1.1 "That flash! It looked like the Triforce! I knew you were special! Thank you for helping to wake Zelda. She has been asleep for a while, so I'm going to stay with her to explain what's going on in Hyrule. You should try to find your way home! I hope our paths cross again someday soon, friend of Hyrule!" — Trill (Cadence of Hyrule)
  2. "Hey! Hey, you! I saw you fall from the sky! That landing wasn't very graceful. Are you okay? Oh! You're not Hylian? So you're new here! I'm Trill. Nice to meet you!" — Trill (Cadence of Hyrule)
