|The Legend of Zelda: Oath of Riruto|
The Legend of Zelda: Oath of Riruto (ゼルダの伝説: リルトの誓い, Zeruda no Densetsu: Riruto no Chikai) is a manga created by Junya Furusawa and Jin Munesue. The series was only released in Japan, where it was originally serialized in Shounen Oh (少年王), a bimonthly manga anthology magazine published by Kobunsha. The series began in the December 1994 issue and concluded in the April 1997 issue, which was also the final issue of the Shounen Oh magazine.
The series was collected into four paperback books, with each volume containing three to four chapters. The protagonist of the series is not Link, but a boy named Riruto; however, Link does appear in all four volumes. The manga also features other characters from the video game series, including Zelda and Ganon.
Ganon is the main villain of the story. He is only shown in his beast form.
Kāla is a girl who Riruto meets during the later part of volume two. She helps Riruto throughout the story and can be seen carrying an animal that can transform into a giant, worm-like creature.
Kalin is Riruto's childhood friend who gets kidnapped twice during the story by evil creatures. Her first kidnapping is what starts Riruto's adventure and the manga's plot.
Riruto is the manga's main character. He resembles Link in many ways, his clothing is however very different. The plot starts out with his motivation of rescuing Kalin, who is his childhood friend.
Link serves a minor role in this manga. However, he teaches Riruto several things about swordsmanship. He only makes interaction with Link and Mōtone during the story.
Mōtone is a knowledgeable old man who is introduced to Riruto by Link. They are the only characters he makes interaction with during the story.
Zelda is a rather minor character in the manga, as she only appears in the introduction of the first manga and in the ending of the fourth manga.
