Prince Ralis is a character in Twilight Princess.


Ralis is the prince of the Zora people, and son of Queen Rutela. He tried to travel to Hyrule Castle to plead to Princess Zelda for help when Zora's Domain froze, but he was attacked by monsters and rescued by Ilia.[1][2] He became ill because he had spent too long away from water, and requires emergency transport to Kakariko Village to be treated by Renado.[3][4] Soon after Link clears the Lakebed Temple, Prince Ralis will tell Link that he had seen him in a dream that his mother sent him.[5] He is reluctant to become the King of the Zoras, but throughout the story he grows in confidence with Link's help.[6][7] He is an excellent Reekfish angler,[8] and gifts Link the Coral Earring required to catch one.[9] Catching a Reekfish is essential to the game's progression.

After giving Link the Coral Earring, Ralis returns to Zora's Domain and rules over the Zoras. If Link visits him, he will welcome him and urge him to make himself at home.[10] During the end credits, Ralis finds the spirit of his mother and continues to rule over the Zoras, but in a much happier state.

Twilight Princess The prince of the Zora people, aquatic humanoids that inhabit the waters of Hyrule. Ralis is the son of Queen Rutela, who was executed by creatures from the Twilight Realm. As a memento, Ralis keeps a coral earring. He is a great reekfish angler-the best, in fact, of all the Zora people. Random


  • During the period in the game when Link goes to Mayor Bo to ask how he bested the Gorons, if he goes into the other villagers' houses either before or after he speaks to Mayor Bo, Prince Ralis' Theme will be playing in the background. This only occurs during this segment of the game.
  • The pendant around his neck resembles the Zora's Sapphire from Ocarina of Time.
