Link's Triumph is the fourth & final episode of Read Only Memory Vol. 2. In this super quick short, Link faces the Aquamentis, the first boss from the original Legend of Zelda game.

I hope everyone enjoys the short. Thank you!

Edit: Thanks Tom & the NG team for fronting this so quickly! Awesome.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

I really liked this, it was short and sweet.

The animation was very fluid and the artwork was very clean and pleasant to look at.

But what I really liked was how you made Link act throughout this video. I haven't seen Link being given this kind of character type alot, if at all.

He was nervous, but still courageous enough to face his enemy, while being a bit clumsy during the fight (shield on fire, accidently litting his bomb, .. ) all while staying true to his character but not having any dialogue.

This accompanied with the music, it overall came accros as a very enjoyable and quality cartoon. I honestly could see this working as an official short Zelda cartoon on television, or something along those lines.

Fantastic work!

Short and sweet. I like how he couldn't believe what he'd just done


Rated 5 / 5 stars

This short was really good. I liked the animation and Link's insecurity face to what lied behind that door. It was his first boss after all!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Honestly, I was thrown off a bit. With a title like "Link's Triumph", I've been trained by other Newgrounds vids to expect a gag. Which isn't bad! But this was even better. The flames/fire were amazingly animated! The voices were great, not just standard grunts and such, as were the other sound effects and music. Let's not forget the ending song; awesome! Simple character style, but expressive animation. Yes, it was short...but not too short to kill the action or squash the quality.
