The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom fan art shows us a new (and hilarious) side to the princess

Nintendo has revealed that Princess Zelda will lead as the playable protagonist in the newly announced game, The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom. Instead of swinging the iconic Master Sword, Zelda wields the Tri Rod, a magical tool that can allow her to replicate items and creatures from the larger environment. Now, anything from a wooden table to a monster can be summoned by Zelda to explore the world, solve puzzles, and fight.

Using materials in unexpected ways isn’t exactly anything new for The Legend of Zelda fans. If anything, the sandbox elements of Tears of Kingdom already pushed this way of playing to the max. Anything from a pile of logs to a frozen slab of meat could be viable materials for building zany contraptions. However, Echoes of Wisdom revives the charm and humor of using unconventional tools to save Hyrule. Mainly, it’s just great to think about the princess aggressively saving Link from his death by wielding nothing but a chair and a kitchen table.

Now fans have filled X with posts and fan art celebrating the protagonist and her newfound set of magical powers. This first piece of art portrays the enormous potential of “table power,” but you can scroll on to see more.

Based on the gameplay demonstration shown on Tuesday, Zelda needs to be able to see and scan an item first with her rod before she can replicate it. I don’t think there are any guns in Hyrule, but that hasn’t stopped fans from fans imagining what could happen if she were able to create one.

Part of the trailer showed Zelda carrying a hefty rock, so a lot of the art reimagines the moment where the tiny princess picks up the large boulder.

And then if good old goofs and memes are your game, well there are already plenty of those too. Here are two of the funniest ones we found.

The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom is coming out on Nintendo Switch on Sept. 26.
