The Trophy is an item featured in The Adventure of Link.[1]

Location and Uses

The trophy belonged to a woman in Town of Ruto, but it was stolen by a Goriya.[2] Link has to retrieve the trophy in a cave in Tantari Desert which is infested with Octoroks. At the end is the Goriya guarding the trophy, and once the young hero takes it back to the woman in town, she will allow him to meet her uncle, who will teach him the Jump magic.[3][4]

Other Appearances

The Legend of Zelda (Valiant Comics)

The Trophy appears in the The Legend of Zelda comics by Valiant Comics, although it is referred to as the Magic Trophy. In The Power, Link and Zelda go to Ganon's lair in the Underworld to retrieve the stolen Trophy and return it to the Town of Ruto. It is explained by Zelda that the Trophy must be immediately rescued since otherwise, the town of Ruto will perish.[5] Link eventually finds it unguarded in one of the chambers, along with the Triforce of Power. After defeating a pair of Darknuts and Darknut Prime, the young hero exits the underground lair and meets with Zelda, informing her that he obtained both the Magic Trophy and the Triforce of Power.[6]

The Trophy is also depicted in the prologue story of Issue #1. Here, Link defeats a Goriya guarding the trophy, much like in the game. He then holds it above his head as the townsfolk cheer for him.


  • The sprite for the Trophy was altered from the Japanese version, where it appeared much more angelic with spread wings and open arms. In contrast, the international version looks like it's holding its hands in prayer.
  • The Japanese version of the game refers to the trophy as a "goddess statue".
  • The Trophy in the game resembles the Statue of the Goddess in Skyward Sword. Both show a feminine winged character supposedly a goddess and also in the international versions they have the same pose.
