The Legend of Zelda is a series of action-adventure video games referenced in Heroes.
Created by Shigeru Miyamoto and Takashi Tezuka in 1986, The Legend of Zelda is a series of fantasy action-adventure video-games released for the Nintendo game consoles. The games generally take place in the fictional world of Hyrule and involve a mixture of exploration, action, puzzle and combat. Often well received, the games have enjoyed tremendous success.
The main characters are Link, the hero and protagonist, Ganon (also known as Ganondorf), the recurring villain who wishes to take over Hyrule, and Zelda, the princess of Hyrule who is frequently kidnapped by Ganon.
Hiro believes that there is a damsel in distress who requires a hero. Vowing to defeat Ganondorf, Hiro indeed finds princess Zelda -- though he does not realize she's actually a dog, and Ganondorf is actually a young boy.
Hiro also imagines he sees an angel with a symbol on his chest very similar to The Legend of Zelda emblem.
- In The Trip, Part 1, Ganon's name appears as "Gannon". The character's name has appeared occasionally with a double n, but normally is spelled with a single n.
He imagines a little boy to look like Ganondorf...
...and Zelda the dog to look like Zelda the Princess.
