These Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time enemy renders are pure nightmare fuel. Like seriously, these things will give you nightmares!
The renders in question are from a concept artist by the name of Andreas Rios. Looking back, I do remember finding some of the enemies in Ocarina of Time creepier than I expected. However, this concept art brings that creepiness up to a whole other level.
Legend of Zelda has its moments of horror
The concept art features Bongo Bongo, Dead Hand, ReDead and Skulltula. For me at least, it’s been a while since I played Ocarina of Time, so I’ve put together some images so you can compare the artwork of Andreas Rios, next to the original concept art.
Seriously, these horrific enemy renders wouldn’t look out of place if they were in a survival horror game such as Silent Hill. Let alone a charming game such as The Legend of Zelda. Though it’s fair to say that this series does have its moments.
I won’t be sleeping tonight
Take, for example, the “Bottle of the Well” a dungeon where enemies such as Dead Hand reside. Furthermore, the moon from Majora’s Mask will never stop giving me the feeling of utter dread.
“I picked [these four] because those were the ones I hated as a child,” Rios told Nintendo Life. “I really love Ocarina of Time and in my free time I’m working on more fanarts, eventually I’d love to do more of other Zelda games like Majora’s [Mask] or Wind Waker.”
