Nayru's Love is a recurring Spell in The Legend of Zelda series, first appearing in Ocarina of Time.

Location and Uses

OoT3D Nayru's Love Icon.png

In Ocarina of Time, Nayru's Love received from the Great Fairy of Magic in the Desert Colossus.[1] When used, the Spell surrounds Link's body with a diamond-shaped barrier, which lasts for exactly one minute.[2] Nayru's Love prevents all damage, but does not stop recoil from enemy attacks. It can be activated instantly on command, but only deactivates when it wears off. The effect of Nayru's Love wearing off is signaled by the barrier flickering while the noise that accompanies it falters. It drains 12 Magic Power when used. While activated, Link cannot use any other items that drain Magic Power.

Other Appearances

Super Smash Bros. Series

See SmashWiki's articles on Nayru's Love for more information.

Nayru's Love is Zelda's neutral special move. When performed, a blue diamond-shaped barrier surrounds Zelda, which then shatters into tiny blue crystals as Zelda spins around. The shards deal slight damage to any nearby opponents. The spell can reflect projectile attacks when timed correctly.[3]

Hyrule Warriors

In Hyrule Warriors, Nayru's Love appears as a Defense Badge in the Bazaar's Badge Market. When purchased for a Warrior, it nullifies the knock-back effect from hits sustained by that particular Warrior.[4] It appears in three iterative Badge qualities: bronze, silver and gold; each providing a stronger effect than the one prior. Nayru's Love I nullifies the first hit, Nayru's Love II the second hit, and Nayru's Love III nullifies the first three hits.

One of the attacks that Zelda can execute with her Rapier is summoning a large crystal of ice. This, joined with her two other attacks resembling Din's Fire and Farore's Wind, appears to be a reference to Nayru's Love.
