Other Appearances

Link's Awakening (Cagiva)

In the Link's Awakening manga by Ataru Cagiva, according to the Owl, once the power of the eight Instruments of the Sirens is combined, the mystery of the Wind Fish will be solved. Therefore, Link must find the scattered Instruments throughout Koholint Island in order to leave. Once collected, Link plays the "Ballad of the Wind Fish" on the Ocarina in order to activate their power, causing the Wind Fish's Egg to crack open.
