The "Ballad of Gales" is a recurring song in the Zelda series, first appearing as a playable song in The Wind Waker.


Appearances, Learning Locations and Uses

The Wind Waker

In The Wind Waker, it is taught to Link by the Wind God Cyclos.[1] He teaches it to the young hero after he defeats the wind god using the bow and arrows while caught in his cyclone. This melody allows Link to warp to the following islands of the Great Sea:

This tune is mandatory in order to progress in the game, for it is the only way to obtain the Fire Arrows and the Ice Arrows from the Fairy Queen in the Mother and Child Isles.

Twilight Princess

The "Ballad of Gales" appears once more in Twilight Princess, as the fifth song Wolf Link must howl in order to summon the Golden Wolf on Snowpeak Trail. This version incorporates parts of the The Wind Waker main theme, in addition to the Ballad itself.
