This moveset is based on the Wind Waker baton from The Wind Waker. Its use by Zelda is likely a reference Fado statement that the Wind Waker was once used by the King of Hyrule (implied to be Daphnes Nohansen Hyrule) to conduct the Sages of the Master Sword and the fact that Toon Link receives it from the King of Red Lions himself, thus Zelda's possession and use of the Wind Waker is likely a reference to its association with the Royal Family of Hyrule. Her use of a conductor's baton may also be a reference to Zelda's portrayal in the Hyrule Warriors series, as she is the Supreme Commander who leads the Hyrulean Forces, a role akin to that of a conductor.
