•The Goddesses’ approval of Link
Link fought through the trials in the Tower of the Gods to test his courage and gain access to the Master Sword sealed away in Hyrule Castle at the bottom of the ocean.
Link assaulted Forsaken Fortress and challenged Ganondorf, but the Master Sword had lost its powers and couldn’t harm Ganondorf’s body. As Tetra tried to come to the rescue, Ganondorf saw through her disguise and realized that she was Princess Zelda. In the nick of time, Link and Zelda are rescued and flee the Forsaken Fortress.
The King of Red Lions realized the gravity of the situation and led Link and Tetra to the chamber of the Master Sword, where he revealed himself to be the King of Hyrule.
The king reunited the fragments of the Triforce of Wisdom, which made Tetra awaken as Zelda, the heir of Hyrule’s royal bloodline. To prevent her from being kidnapped by Ganondorf, the king made her stay in Hyrule Castle.
