The Legend of Zelda is a video game series created by Shigeru Miyamoto for Nintendo. It is an action-adventure fantasy series that follows a character named Link, who must save the land of Hyrule from the evil Ganon, a sorcerous warlord who has the ability to transform into a boar-like demon. It also has a spinoff based on the Dynasty Warriors franchise called Hyrule Warriors.

Early versions of the Zelda series, generally the two NES and to some extend the SNES release A Link to the Past, contain Christian connotations. Several Crosses can be seen in the first two releases on the NES: On a shield, on a book of magic, and a standalone cross relic. Additionally, promotional artwork for the SNES has the main character kneeling in front of a Crucifix with an unnamed person on it. Also in the SNES version there is a Church "sanctuary" as well as one puzzle which requires a prayer to advance to the next location.[1] After the SNES, the Zelda series began further developing its own lore and iconography.

The 1989 Legend of Zelda cartoon also featured the cross on a shield.
