"Hyrule Castle", also known as "Farewell Hyrule King", is a recurring piece of Music in The Legend of Zelda series.[name references needed] It is commonly used as a leitmotif for the King of Hyrule.


Breath of the Wild

It is not played in the actual Hyrule Castle, which instead uses an original theme in a time signature of 5/4. This one has a variable mix for the exterior (which quotes the Overworld Theme) and the interior (which quotes Zelda's Lullaby). Both versions quote Ganon's Theme and Ballad of the Wind Fish. However, it is used as King Rhoam's theme, hinting at the Old Man's true identity before it is revealed.
