For Anyone Who Had A Crush On Sheik From "Zelda"

*whispers* Take me with you on a quest.

Posted on

When you first saw Sheik — either in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time or Super Smash Bros. — you were probably like, "Who's this androgynous ninja I have sex feelings for, despite the fact that it's a cartoon?"

In Ocarina of Time it's revealed that Sheik is the alter ego of Princess Zelda, who dresses up as a male Sheikah to avoid being captured by the evil Ganondorf.


By way of a hint, the game states that, "contrary to her elegant image, Princess Zelda of Hyrule Castle is, in fact, a tomboy!" [Swoon.]


Her theme from "Ocarina of Time" probably still gives you goosebumps.

Sheik's appearance has changed over time, becoming more visibly feminine.

(We can only hope she doesn't eventually succumb to Bratz syndrome, in which all female-oriented toys and characters become hyper-sexualized and feminized.)
