Hey everyone. I made this a while back before Ocarina of Time 3D came out and it was supposed to be a tribute, but I never got around to finishing it. It's not the best I could do, but I think it turned out okay for what it's worth. Hopefully you enjoy the fight as much as I did making it!

It's very skillfully animated, I have to hand it to you. However, there are some sections that really stand out.

For instance, when Ganondorf dies he's doing a midair kick. I realise you don't have very much sprites to work with, but at least make him disintegrate or something. It just makes a good flash seem sub-par.

Great work though, and I'm sure if you keep this up you'll be flawless!

'Twas O.K...

Link was very well animated much of the time, but Gannondorf was very stiff in comparison. When animating sprite action sequences, every character should have about the same level of flexibility and motion, or else it looks like an animated character duking it out with a cardboard cut-out. Unless that's the effect you're aiming for in the scene, you want to try to avoid that sort of thing by using more versatile sprite sheets or limiting characters with no real action animations to stationary attacks like magic, ranged weapons, etc.

Thanks for your input. Didn't realize how little leg room I had with Ganondorf's sprites until I actually started using him.

That was fun!

Ganondorf was sooo easy to kill...ha ha ha
Thanks for the nice video

Not bad at all, albeit a bit lacking

The use of the sprites was pretty cool and I liked Link's fighting style, the enemy explosions reminded me a little of Mega Man style boss explosions but that's cool as I'm a fan of that series as well.

Not much of a story and the battle with Gannondorf was a tad short and boring but, on the whole I relatively enjoyed it.

dannydk6 responds:


Not bad animation but....

TTA is a discontinued series created by another artist, did you at least get his permission?

dannydk6 responds:

Yes, but it isn't canon. Don't worry about it.
