Gerudo Typography is the written language of the Gerudo, as confirmed by Hyrule Historia. Consisting of 26 different characters, it is directly based on the modern Latin alphabet. It appears at the Gerudo's Training Ground and in the Spirit Temple of Ocarina of Time and sparsely in the Arbiter's Grounds of Twilight Princess.
- The alphabet is written in the its order on the stone to the left for the stairs at the entrance of the Spirit Temple of Ocarina of Time.
- The "y" in the Gerudo Typography bears resemblance to the "y" found in the medieval runic alphabet, or fuþark.
- The usage of only two single numbers (1 and 5) highly suggests that the Gerudo numerical system is a simplified variation of Roman Numerals. It is possible that counting would consist of the two available numbers being used consecutively to reach the desired number. For example, 6 would be written "5 1", ten would be written "5 5" and fifty five would thus be written with eleven consecutive 5's.
- A font of the Gerudo Typography was constructed by Sarinilli shortly after scans of Hyrule Historia revealed the existence of the alphabet.
