- — Toon Zelda, Spirit Princess of Hyrule Historical Entry Tutorial Bio
Toon Zelda (トゥーンゼルダ Tūn Zeruda?, ) is an alternate version of Princess Zelda that appears in Hyrule Warriors and Hyrule Warriors Legends. She is based on Ghost Zelda from The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks.
Like most DLC characters, Toon Zelda has no role in the story of Hyrule Warriors or Hyrule Warriors Legends.
As the Princess of New Hyrule, Toon Zelda possesses the Sacred Power of the Spirits, which makes her a target for Chancellor Cole and Malladus in Spirit Tracks. In her ghost form, Toon Zelda possesses various powers such as flight, intangibility, and the ability to possess Phantoms. In the Hyrule Warriors series, her End Focus Spirit Attack is depicted as capable of unleashing a powerful scream when frightened that damages enemies, along with the two rats that caused her to scream in the first place.
While possessing a Phantom, Toon Zelda gains access to its armor, weapons, and special abilities like those possessed by the Warp Phantoms and Wrecker Phantoms. In the Hyrule Warriors series, however, her Phantom appears to be a normal Phantom, though it possesses Wrecker Phantoms' ability to turn into an iron ball. She is also capable of unleashing Sword Beams from the Phantom's swords.
As a Phantom, Toon Zelda is stronger than in her original body, thus allowing her to perform feats such as carrying Toon Link. In Hyrule Warriors, she can even sheath her Phantom Arms and fight using its fists as one of her combos. She is also shown to be able to leave Phantom briefly before repossessing it.
Moveset and Weapons
With Toon Zelda herself being an intangible ghost, she fights by possessing a Phantom and making use of its Phantom Arms, a powerful light-infused sword and shield. In addition to her sword slashes, she can also shoot Sword Beams from her final string of weak attacks, turn into an iron ball like Wrecker Phantoms to ram into enemies, or temporarily exit the Phantom to cast light magic using the Sacred Power of the Spirits.
