The Legend of Zelda (NES) – 100% Full Game Walkthrough

A 100% complete walkthrough for the original “The Legend of Zelda” on the NES. This video shows the locations for all Heart Pieces, items, upgrades and even every room in all dungeons.

This took me a while to make, as a lot of planning was required.

  8. Jacob Wright on August 22, 2022 at 2:50 am

    Man. Forgot how one-note, repetitive, and depressing this boring piece of sh*t was. And so annoying with the bleeps and never ending looped music. No wonder I gave up on it back in ’96. Still, always wanted to see the whole game.

  11. bolt's Gaming Alaska on August 22, 2022 at 2:53 am

    The best Legend of Zelda hands down! It’s still hard to beat, I died alot when I first played it, I still get hit no matter how careful I try to play but my all time favorite game above all!

  12. JP Simmons on August 22, 2022 at 2:54 am

    It’s "Ganon", not "Gannon"!

  13. Brian Tarkington on August 22, 2022 at 2:56 am

    I remember my grandpa and I playing this back in 1989, I was 8 years old, so many good memories. My grandma beat this game like 3 or 4 times. Miss you pops. He passed in 2010 rip

  15. FaReal WitIt on August 22, 2022 at 2:56 am

  16. KronKron on August 22, 2022 at 2:56 am

    So far who ever playing can’t play worth a shit

  17. James Ford on August 22, 2022 at 2:57 am

    I know he completed the game and everything, and that it takes a lot of effort to record and upload stuff like this, so I’ll give him credit for that, because he earned it. However, this guy sucks at playing the game though. Dude just runs through areas in spots taking unnecessary damage, resulting in him having to heal way too often. A damage-less run is next to impossible in this game, but this guy is way too careless, both in fights and in getting through areas.

    What’s more is that he hardly ever uses his other weapons. I’m sitting there raging at this guy trying to kill the dark blue bats with the sword when he already has the boomerang. I’m like, "Dude, you do know the boomerang one-shots those things a lot easier than trying to chase them around with a sword, right?" It’s just not very entertaining seeing him basically only using other items/weapons when he absolutely has to, and using the sword the rest of the time. The sword is not the best weapon in every situation, especially if you’re not at full health and have lost the ability to shoot blades out of it.

    Is that because Is called the Legend of Zelda because Zelda Is actually the reincarnation of goddess Hylia and so in the first game she destroyed Triforce that Din, Nayru and Farore created it to stop Ganon, that he was the reincarnation of Demise, to take it

  19. Glyym on August 22, 2022 at 3:01 am

    why do i have gleeok on level 2?

  20. VideoGamePhenom on August 22, 2022 at 3:07 am

    A legend that will always be a legend. It all seems that Nintendo was dominant in the 80s decade.

  21. james walsh on August 22, 2022 at 3:08 am

    You can buy the blue ring for 60 rupees above the gambling thing if you go back after first dungeon. Instead of 250

  22. Derek Juarez on August 22, 2022 at 3:08 am

    How do they expect you to know where to drop bombs to open up paths in the rock or in a wall. I don’t see any changes like in A Link to the past for SNES the walls you can blow up have cracks, even on death mountain

  23. Lissette St Denis on August 22, 2022 at 3:08 am

    That song is my favortie song of all video game songs!! A Bay Area Hip hop group from the 90s called the Earthlings made a song to this beat. It was such a dope song. Man when video games so fun, do t fet me wrong games are u real now, but there was more meaning to games in the 80 and 90s. We didnt have a internet to get cheats, family and friends had ti come over to play with us. Also if you only had 1 TV in the house you had to wait for your mom to finish her soaps lol!! Just a great time in history.

  24. IWTD on August 22, 2022 at 3:09 am

    38:15 look at the map☠️

  25. Holly Kaytan on August 22, 2022 at 3:14 am

    Mann kann’s auch übertreiben mit werbung

  26. Laãyøn on August 22, 2022 at 3:14 am

    This was my favorite game of all time !!!!

  27. Fernicus Maximus on August 22, 2022 at 3:14 am

    So crazy I was 4 when this came out, how time has flown.

  28. KramCherry P on August 22, 2022 at 3:15 am

    Question for all 80’s kids, did the graphics look "rad" back then?

  29. Peter Newbranch on August 22, 2022 at 3:15 am

    fuck 1 million ads

  30. Gach_gacha on August 22, 2022 at 3:17 am

    I remember playing this game when it came out and it was SO GOOD then it released in America and when I found out a bragged how we got “early access” to it. Glad the game can be played world wide now

  31. Jason Helenburg on August 22, 2022 at 3:18 am

    Video is only half complete. Try the second quest

  32. Dr.C on August 22, 2022 at 3:21 am

    Walk through walls, man. Epic concept to this day!!!!!

  33. schoolgirlshortdress on August 22, 2022 at 3:22 am

    The game that changes my life..Thirty years later the song is stuck in my head and in my heart as well..I havent played another rpg game, because I don’t feel like that there is another rpg game as good as this..ZELDA FOREVER ❤

  34. Clofic C on August 22, 2022 at 3:22 am

    Back when a new game had to last for several months and easily did so 🙇🏼‍♂️

  35. Jimmy Carolina on August 22, 2022 at 3:22 am

    It’s the greatest video game ever made. Just watching this video, I’m almost brought to tears, by the exquisite craftsmanship of this wonderful game. The time & energy that was obviously invested into its creation is staggering. What a gem it is.

  36. Gina Marie Ferreira on August 22, 2022 at 3:24 am

    The secret door noise 😍

  37. Brook Lyn on August 22, 2022 at 3:25 am

    First skyrim

  38. JM99 on August 22, 2022 at 3:26 am

    I never liked this game until today, I now think it’s one of the best nes games

  39. bearly acoustic on August 22, 2022 at 3:27 am

    Seriously didn’t think I’d watch the entire video… lol…

  40. Aaron M on August 22, 2022 at 3:27 am

    Thank you

  41. ENL ATH Xaind on August 22, 2022 at 3:28 am

    This was my second game ever played on a console after Metroid. Watching this almost makes me cry. Me and my beloved father spent thousands of hours on this game, beating it again and again. It was the times that in my country NES was not even released so if someone we knew was going aboard we had to beg to get us a game…

  42. bolt's Gaming Alaska on August 22, 2022 at 3:29 am

    I just downloaded the rom, I’m in level 3 now on my way to try for both quests, and using this PS4 controller and Android this is one tough tough tough game I don’t know how many times I died, I got the white sword and blue ring currently and I’ll keep trying no matter how many times I die but this guy makes it look soo easy but, I’m not ready yet for the deathless run 😂 I’m still dying trying to finish a few levels 1 life is all then your down, gotta have my failsafe, red bottle of medicine 🩸 dang this is tougher than I thought until I slowed down dodge and hit, but I’ll keep trying 😂 gotta develop your own style to beat this game not everyone has the same style, others I saw skip levels, some can run and gun like this dude, but I’ll enjoy this old game still the one of the. Top hardest most fun games ever created hands down besides the 2nd one was also a pain but a blast to battle and beat.

  43. Annie Finch on August 22, 2022 at 3:32 am

    I remember this video game.

  45. Ask Remy on August 22, 2022 at 3:37 am

    in these days we would play games with friends – we went to each others homes – had dinner – went outside played kickball or ride bikes or simply hangout

  46. srgreeniii on August 22, 2022 at 3:40 am

    That music haunts my nightmares, oh so many hours, days, weeks spent playing it.

  47. bay justin on August 22, 2022 at 3:41 am

    As an Asian I remember getting sidetracked and betting my hard earned money with the old man inside the cave … as soon as I found him, I stopped progressing … just countless hours betting …

  48. Richard Reavis on August 22, 2022 at 3:41 am

    Started this for the first time 08/2022. 32 years after I first played AoL.

  49. AnimeWarrior Pharaoh on August 22, 2022 at 3:42 am

    Why didn’t you get the wand from lvl 6!
