After their respective Scenarios have been completed, Movies appear on the Story interface in the Gallery, where they can be rewatched at any time. The only exceptions to this are "Inevitable Betrayal" and "Terrako", which play after certain conditions have been met and appear in the Gallery afterwards. Select Movies have the option to reflect equipment, which will alter the Warriors' Attire and Weapons to reflect what they currently have equipped.

Title Description

"Across Time"
Since ancient times, Calamity Ganon has threatened the land of Hyrule. As Hyrule Castle falls to his devastating assault, a lone Guardian reacts to Princess Zelda's desperate plea and embarks on a journey through time to save her.

"King on the Eve of Battle"
The king of Hyrule, preparing for the revival of Calamity Ganon, attempts to eliminate the monsters running rampant. Standing among the troops assembled for battle is the fateful knight Link.

"The Central Tower"
The mysterious Guardian that Link discovered during the battle reacts to the Sheikah Slate Impa has in her possession. Just as the Guardian reacts, a mysterious tower erupts from the ground.

"The Diminutive Guardian"
Impa racks her brain over the mysterious, diminutive Guardian and the tower that suddenly appeared. Meanwhile, the Guardian spots Hyrule Castle and, ignoring Impa's shouts, rushes toward it as fast as it can.

Link and Impa pursue the Guardian, arriving at Hyrule Castle and meeting Zelda. As Zelda expresses her joy at their safe return, the small Guardian dashes up to her, seemingly desperate to convey something.

In order to analyze the Guardian from the future, Zelda travels with Link and the others to the Royal Ancient Lab. On the way there, however, a Guardian goes berserk and attacks the party. At the same time, a horde of monsters appear and attack as well.

"A Hidden Observer"
After narrowly escaping the rampaging Guardian and the monsters, Zelda and the others celebrate their safety. Meanwhile, an ominous figure observes them from hiding.

"The Ruined Future"
Carefully analyzing the little Guardian from the future reveals it to be a completely new model built from unknown technology, and stored within it are detailed records of the events at Hyrule Castle after Calamity Ganon's revival.

Zelda, Link, Impa, and the others prepare to depart Hyrule Castle on orders from the king to recruit pilots for the Divine Beasts. The king stops them, however, when he recognizes the Guardian at Zelda's feet and gives her a stern admonition.

"The Looming Threat"
In order to recruit Mipha as a pilot for a Divine Beast, Zelda makes her case to Mipha's father, King Dorephan. The king refuses to permit Mipha to help, but the audience is cut short when monsters suddenly threaten Zora's Domain.

"Against the Lynel"
Discovering the young Prince Sidon standing up to a Lynel, the party quickly comes to his aid. The Lynel is undeterred by their arrival, brandishing a giant blade and releasing a terrifying roar.

"Ray of Hope"
The party rescues Sidon, but they have no time to rest before an even bigger horde of monsters appears. Comprehending the scale of the attack, Mipha and the others are at a loss for words until the little Guardian gives them a sliver of hope.

"Divine Beast Vah Ruta"
King Dorephan himself takes command of the forces defending Zora's Domain, but even under his guidance, they are backed into a corner by superior numbers. However, salvation arrives in the form of the Divine Beast Vah Ruta, piloted by Mipha.

"Mipha's Wishes"
After seeing Mipha use the power of the Divine Beast to defeat the Lynel and hold off the massive attacking horde, King Dorephan acknowledges Mipha's resolve and gives his approval for her to serve as the pilot of the Divine Beast.

"Reaching Vah Rudania"

"Into the Storm"
On the way to Rito Village, the party gets caught up in an intense snowstorm. Leaving Princess Zelda behind at a safe location, Link and the party set out to scout the area but quickly come into conflict with Rito warriors led by Revali.

Just as a fierce battle between Link and Revali is about to reach a violent conclusion, Princess Zelda intervenes. Both the snowstorm and the battle between the two warriors come to an abrupt end.

"Revali's Wishes"
Revali agrees to become a pilot for a Divine Beast but gets his feathers ruffled when he discovers that Link is the Princess's Knight. The little Guardian interjects, not in support of Link, but to assert that it is also a protector of the princess.

"Attack of the Gerudo!"
The party sets out for Gerudo Town to recruit their chief, Urbosa, as a pilot of a Divine Beast. However, they are unexpectedly attacked by the Gerudo. Zelda steels herself and attempts to learn Urbosa's true motives.

"Return of the Chief"
With Zelda in peril, the real Urbosa makes her appearance, and the imposter chief is revealed to be Master Kohga of the Yiga Clan. Kohga quickly summons reinforcements to the battle then abruptly leaves them to fight on their own.

"Slippery as a Banana Peel!"

Master Kohga and Sooga escape to their hideout. Waiting for them there is the mysterious seer Astor, as well as a black Guardian eerily similar to the model that has been accompanying Zelda.

Zelda has been successful in her recruiting mission, yet the king remains stern with her. Told to focus on her training now more than ever, Zelda tells the little Guardian of the insecurities she carries with her.

Zelda departs Hyrule Castle and sets out with the pilots for the Lanayru region, where they intend to train with the Divine Beasts. The party talks amongst themselves as they travel, but their progress is abruptly halted when the Yiga Clan appears, intent on taking Zelda's life.

Link and the others fight bravely in the intense battle and manage to rout Sooga and the Yiga Clan. Zelda offers Link gratitude for his protection, and finds herself slowly coming to trust him more and more.

"Divine Beast Vah Medoh"
In order to more easily secure the sword that seals the darkness, the Master Sword, the king of Hyrule orders all monsters within Korok Forest be eradicated. A plan centered around the Divine Beast Vah Medoh is made, but its pilot Revali, seems unsure about their leader.

"To the Lost Woods"
Thanks to the power of Vah Medoh, the monsters are cleared away, and the party is able to continue on to the Lost Woods. Unbeknownst to them, however, Astor, the Yiga Clan, and others have already infiltrated the forest depths.

"The Knight Who Seals the Darkness"

"Zelda's Wishes"

"After the Ceremony"
The inauguration ceremony for Link and the four Champions who will pilot the Divine Beasts comes to an end, and everyone takes in the celebratory atmosphere. An amusing interaction between the little Guardian and the others is enough to ease Zelda's worries, if only a bit.

As Zelda prepares to depart and investigate the Central Tower, King Rhoam confronts her once again on where her focus lies. Zelda musters all of her courage to express her intentions to him, but...

"The Sheikah Towers are Activated"
