Ocarina of Time

OoT3D Serenade of Water Icon.png

The "Serenade of Water" is one of the warping songs Link learns as an adult in Ocarina of Time. It is taught to him by Sheik after obtaining the Iron Boots in the Ice Cavern, and enables him to easily warp to Lake Hylia, where the Water Temple is located.

Majora's Mask

In Majora's Mask, the "Serenade of Water"'s notes sometimes appear on a wall in the northern part of Termina Field, where Link can play a song for Rupees.

Twilight Princess

In Twilight Princess, the serenade can be heard as the background music for the two instances when Link encounters the ghost of the deceased Rutela. The aforementioned two moments are when the throne of Zora's Domain is found totally frozen, and after escorting Ralis from Hyrule Castle Town to Kakariko Village. It also plays briefly after Ralis gives Link the Coral Earring and states his decision to return to Zora's Domain.

Other Appearances

A serenade, or "serenata" is a musical composition or performance in someone's honor. Serenades are typically calm, light music. The word Serenade is derived from the word "sereno," which means calm, making it fitting to the smooth and relaxing tempo of the "Serenade of Water."
