Mini-Games,(BotW | TotK)[1][2] also known as Minigames,(OoS | TWW | TP | ST)[3][4][5][6][name references needed] are a recurring element in The Legend of Zelda series. Mini-Games go unnamed in The Minish Cap.

Overview

In most of their appearances, Mini-Games are independent elements of the main game. They have a much smaller scale and the mechanics and rules might differ from the main game. Mini-Games can range from short and easy to long and tedious, and usually result in being awarded prizes such as Pieces of Heart or upgrades.
