The Legend of Zelda: The Sage of Darkness is an independent Fan Film based on The Legend of Zelda series, directed by Josh Dixon and created by Titus Studios (now Karpos Pictures). Released on YouTube in 2008, the film provides a somewhat extended backstory behind the frequent reincarnations of Link, Zelda, and Ganondorf.
The film in its entirety can be seen here.
- Action Girl: Zelda, to some extent. Unlike most depictions, she actually plays a key role in helping Link defeat Ganondorf once again.
- Big Bad: Davik, the titular Sage of Darkness, is behind everything, intending to end the Cycle of Eternity out of disgust.
- Complete Monster: Davik is a completely batshit insane monster, poisoning his own sister and despising all of humanity.
- Defiant to the End: Link and Zelda seem to be the only people in the kingdom willing to stand up to Ertegun and his troops.
