The Red Ring is a recurring item in the Zelda series, first appearing in The Legend of Zelda.



The Legend of Zelda

In The Legend of Zelda, the Red Ring is the most powerful defensive artifact, even more powerful than the Blue Ring. The Red Ring is found in Level 9. It cuts damage Link takes down to ¼ of what he takes in his original green tunic.

When this ring is in possession, Link's tunic will be red. Wearing the Red Ring will also cause the Merchants' clothing and Princess Zelda's dress to appear red.

Oracle of Seasons

The Red Ring returns in Oracle of Seasons as one of the many collectible rings found within the game; however, its function is different. Instead of increasing Link's defense, it doubles his offensive power. It makes a lethal combination with the Master Sword, able to kill any enemy short of a boss in one spin attack, excluding mini-bosses, which require two. It will not make Link's tunic red like it did in the original The Legend of Zelda.

Hyrule Warriors

In Hyrule Warriors, a red ring appears as the true form of Wizzro, and makes a brief appearance in his intro. The Red Ring is also the second tier weapon of Wizzro's Ring weapon type. Like all of the Ring weapons, it is of the Darkness element and enables Wizzro to use and manifest his dark magic into an assortment of attacks.
