Main Appearance(s)

Oceans are large bodies of water which often connect to major landmasses in The Legend of Zelda series. Various oceans have appeared in the series, and they often are unique. They appear in The Adventure of Link, Link's Awakening, Majora's Mask, Oracle of Ages, The Wind Waker, Phantom Hourglass, Spirit Tracks and Skyward Sword; however they appear most in Phantom Hourglass and The Wind Waker, as most of the game is centered around the ocean and sea transportation, however the idea of using an in-game boat to navigate large waterways is also seen in games such as Skyward Sword as a minor form of transportation.
