"Sidon of the Zora" is a Main Quest in Tears of the Kingdom.[1]

Overview

As part of the "Regional Phenomena" Main Quest, Purah asks Link to investigate strange happenings throughout Hyrule as part of the search for Princess Zelda.[2] After both "Tulin of Rito Village" and "Yunobo of Goron City" have been completed, she suggests visiting Zora's Domain next, since Monsters are more active in the south.[3]

After Link cleans The Turning Tide during "The Sludge-Covered Statue", Yona asks why he has come to Zora's Domain.[4] Upon hearing that he is searching for Zelda, she welcomes him to search for her in the Domain.[5] She also suggests that Link visit Sidon, who is currently at Mipha Court on Ploymus Mountain.[6] Once she leaves, "Sidon of the Zora" will begin.

Sidon's introduction

At Mipha Court, Link can find Sidon using his Power of Water to separate the Sludge from the Water. When he notices Link, he gasps and asks if it is really him.[7] Throwing his arms into the air, Sidon declares that it is good to see him.[8] He reveals that he was concerned when he heard that Link was missing and asks what happened to him.[9]

After hearing Link's story, Sidon voices his suspicions that the Sludge originates from the Sky Islands above the Lanayru Great Spring.[10] As a result of this, he asked Jiahto to investigate the fallen ruins, since it is necessary for him to keep the Water clean from Sludge.[11] Sidon suggests that Link visit with Jiahto at Toto Lake, believing that Zelda's disappearance may be related to the Sky Islands.[12] He reminds Link that he is grateful to see him again after spending so long apart, welcoming him to come visit whenever he wants.[13]

At Toto Lake, Link can start "The Broken Slate" Main Quest by speaking to Jiahto. After helping Jiahto restore the Stone Slate found there, he learns that he can access the Sky via a Watery Bridge, the location of which is revealed by shooting an Arrow with the "mark of the king" through a droplet in the "land of the sky fish."[14] He suggests that Link consult with Dorephan, which starts the "Clues to the Sky".[15] During this Main Quest, Link can find Dorephan in the Pristine Sanctum, where he reveals that he was attacked by a Sludge Monster commanded by Zelda.[16] In order to prevent chaos from spreading among the Zora, he hid himself away in the Sanctum.[17] He then informs Link that the "mark of the king" refers to a Zora King's Scale, which he willingly gives to him.[18] Lastly, Dorephan requests that Link inform Sidon of both the King's Scale and his current condition.[19]

Back at Mipha Court, Sidon is shocked to hear what happened to Dorephan, though he decides to listen when he says not to worry and thanks Link for telling him.[20] Noting that they have more clues pointing them toward the Sky, Sidon decides that they should attempt to find the "land of the sky fish" mentioned on the Stone Slate.[21] He then asks Link to inform him of any leads that he finds.[22]

After completing "Clues to the Sky", a Pillar of Light will appear at East Reservoir Lake.[23] Upon returning to Mipha Court, he will find Sidon speaking with Yona.[24] He insists that it is too dangerous for her, but she claims that she has something to discuss with him.[25] However, they stop their argument when Yona notices Link nearby, and Sidon asks for an update on his investigation.[26] Hearing that they are one step closer to accessing the Sky, Sidon commends Link for his work.[27] Yona suggests that Sidon join Link's search, claiming that he has been holding himself back.[28] She believes that by joining Link, he will be able to act freely and overcome any dangers they face.[29]

Sludge Like's introduction

While Yona attempts to find the cause for his concerns,[30] they are interrupted by the Sludge nearby beginning to move. The Sludge Like then appears, and Sidon wonders if it was the Monster that attacked Dorephan.[31] Yona claims that she and her attendants, Chroma and Khira, are capable of cleansing the Water for now, so Sidon leaves it to them while he and Link fight the Sludge Like.[32] Sidon offers to use his Power of Water to create a shield of Water around Link, which he can then attack the Monster.[33]

Once the Sludge Like has been defeated, Sidon will celebrate their victory.[34] He then turns to Yona, asking if she and her attendants are safe.[35] Yona confirms that they are fine, and out of concern, Sidon tells them to return to Zora's Domain.[36] Yona refuses, using the importance of Link's investigation as evidence that Sidon should accompany him.[37] Although Sidon is uncomfortable about leaving her in a potentially dangerous location, Yona insists that they will be fine.[38] Yona believes that he is acting this way because he is afraid of losing someone he loves again, but she claims that he needs to move forward with courage.[39]

When Sidon once again attempts to argue, Yona becomes angry, telling him that he must follow his heart and leave with Link.[40] Despite his hesitance, Yona is able to convince him to help Link.[41] He decides to go on ahead to the Pillar of Light.[42] Yona is relieved to see Sidon acting like his usual self, and she asks Link to take care of him.[43]

At East Reservoir Lake, Link can find Sidon on a piece of rubble overlooking the Pillar of Light.[44] At that moment, Link and Sidon hear a strange sound, and although Sidon is momentarily confused, he instead decides to focus on the Pillar of Light's origin.[45] He suddenly has an idea and jumps into the Lake's Water.[46] He uses his speed to create a Whirlpool, which reveals the entrance to a Cave on the lakebed.[47] Sidon directs Link to jump into the Whirlpool.[48]

The Whirlpool leads Link to the Ancient Zora Waterworks. By breaking the Hard Sediment clogging its pipes, Link can raise the Waterworks' Water level. This allows him to reach a Terminal on top of a large stone outcropping, which is the origin of the Pillar of Light. Once it is activated, a beam of light will shoot up towards Wellspring Island in the Sky, which causes the Watery Bridge to flow into East Reservoir Lake.

Back on the Surface, Sidon is shocked by the sudden appearance of the Watery Bridge.[49] He asks Link what happened,[50] and he realizes that this must be how they are meant to reach the Sky.[51] He commends Link for living up to his expectations.[52] Once again, a strange sound appears, and a voice beckoning them to the Sky can be heard.[53] In spite of his confusion, Sidon decides to continue on to the Sky.[54] Using the Zora Armor, Link is able to Swim up the Watery Bridge with him.[55][56]

At the top of the Watery Bridge, Link will land on Wellspring Island, which is located within a low-Gravity environment. Nearby, he can find Sidon admiring the ruins.[57] While he is curious, Sidon prioritizes dealing with the Sludge first.[58] He decides that they should temporarily split up for their exploration and runs ahead.[59]

By Swimming in Water Globules, Link is able to navigate Wellspring Island. Upon meeting with Sidon again, he remarks how light he feels in this environment.[60] Due to their unfamiliar situation, Sidon decides to stay with Link.[61] The pair then defeat a Captain Construct, which motivates Sidon to continue forward.[62] At the bottom of a nearby Waterfall, Sidon is able to identify the ruins from which is flows as the source of the Sludge.[63] He then tells Link to make sure he is prepared before they begin to explore.[64]

The Water Temple

Once Link confirms that he is ready, the pair will Swim up the Waterfall.[65] Upon reaching the top, they will arrive at the Water Temple. Sidon is shocked that such a structure was above Zora's Domain.[66] He then sees what he believes to be the origin of the Sludge.[67] He also notices a stream of Water descending from one of the faucets behind the Sludge, which he thinks can be used on it.[68]

By activating the Terminal, the Water Temple's Travel Point will activate, and the Water Vessels behind the Sludge will tip toward it. Though this causes the Sludge to temporarily recede, to amount of Water splashed on it is not enough.[69] The voice speaks to Link and Sidon again, revealing that the Water Temple is the source of Zora's Domain's pure Water.[70] She instructs Sidon to use his Power of Water to activate the remaining four faucets, which will fill all of the Water Vessels.[71] Sidon decides that they should listen to the voice[72]

If Link swings a Weapon at one of the Water Wheels while Sidon's Power of Water is active, it will begin to spin, which activates a faucet. As they activate faucets, Sidon will count down how many are left.[73][74][75] Once all five faucets are flowing, Sidon directs him to activate the Terminal once more.[76]

When the Water Vessels are tipped again, the Sludge will be successfully washed away, except for a glob that flies past Sidon and Link. Sidon is initially positive that they have saved Zora's Domain,[77] but he becomes concerned when he notices the Sludge behind them moving.[78] Mucktorok then reveals itself, and Sidon reasons that it must be the source of the Sludge.[79] Once it creates a Sludge shark, Sidon tells Link to prepare for its attack.[80]

Once Mucktorok has been defeated, the remaining Sludge will disappear from the Water Temple, including that which is covering a Secret Stone. A Heart Container also appears for Link. When Sidon approaches the Secret Stone, it will suddenly shrink in size and rush toward him. Though he stares at it for a moment, Sidon eventually touches it, which causes him and Link to be engulfed in light.

The pair find themselves in an unknown realm with the Sage of Water standing before them.[81] Sidon recognizes that her voice was the one guiding them, and she reveals that she is an ancestor of his from the ancient past.[82] In her time, she was a Sage who served Rauru, the first King of Hyrule.[83] Based on Sidon's fluid movements as he fights, the Sage of Water declares her pride for him.[84] She claims that Mucktorok was a servant of the Demon King Ganondorf that was sent to prevent him from obtaining her Secret Stone.[85] She decides that it is important he knows the history of the Imprisoning War.[86]

The Sage of Water shows Link and Sidon a vision of Hyrule's earliest days. In this time, the Demon King Ganondorf appeared and attempted to destroy Hyrule.[87] Rauru and the Six Sages gathered together to face him, and they were given Secret Stones to enhance their powers.[88] However, they were unable to defeat the Demon King, so Rauru sacrificed himself to seal him away.[89]

Following the Imprisoning War, the Sage of Time came to visit the Sage of Water at the Water Temple.[90] She revealed that the Demon King Ganondorf will break from his seal in the distant future, but a swordsman named Link will fight him.[91] The Sage of Time asks the Sage of Water to lend her control over Water to him,[92] which makes the future of the Zora clear to her.[93] She vowed that when the Demon King returned, a new Sage of Water would awaken among the Zora, and the Zora themselves will fight alongside Link.[94]

Once the vision ends, the Sage of Water states that this involves the destiny of the Zora.[95] Since the Demon King Ganondorf is still a threat, the Sage of Water asks Sidon to accept her Secret Stone and honor her vow.[96] After the Sage of Water disappears, Sidon is silent for a moment as he considers his destiny.[97] In order to save Hyrule, Sidon will decide to honor his ancestor's request.[98] The Secret Stone then turns blue as a new engraving appears upon it, and it adheres itself to the back of Sidon's hand.

As the new Sage of Water, Sidon demonstrates his new power by summoning a Sage Avatar of himself.[99] He then asks to take Link's hand,[100] which he holds as he makes the Vow of Sidon, Sage of Water.[101] As proof, his Vow will engrave itself upon a ring on the pointer finger of Link's Right Arm.[102] This allows him to summon Sidon's Sage Avatar.[103] Now that they are partners once more, Sidon decides that they should return to Zora's Domain.[104]

Around the Lanayru Great Spring, all of the Sludge can be seen disappearing, including that which has afflicted Dorephan. In the Throne Room, Yona welcomes Link's return, and Sidon points out that all of the Sludge has disappeared.[105] Dorephan expresses his gratitude toward Link for helping save Zora's Domain.[106] He also acknowledges Sidon's role, declaring that now is the time to pass the throne down to him.[107] Although Sidon is shocked by how sudden it seems, Dorephan claims that he has been thinking about it for some time.[108] He asks Sidon to lead Zora's Domain alongside Yona.[109] Sidon is still uncertain,[110] but after being reasured by Yona, he decides to accept his new status.[111] Glad to see Sidon's acceptance, Dorephan decides that Link should bear witness to his coronation.[112]

As the residents of Zora's Domain gather in the Square, Muzu calls for their attention.[113] Wearing his crown, Sidon declares that he is the new king of the Zora.[114] He asks his citizens to open their hearts to Yona, who has now become their queen as well.[115] The crowd cheers, and Yona commends Sidon, Link, and all of the Zora for surviving the onslaught of Sludge.[116] Since Hyrule is still in danger, Sidon asks the Zora to help Link, which is what he and Yona plan on doing.[117] At the end of their speech, the crowd cheers once more.

Returning to the Throne Room, Sidon recalls that the Sage of Time they saw in the Sage of Water's vision appeared to be Zelda.[118] He then wonders who the Zelda who attacked Dorephan could have been.[119][120] As a result, Sidon resolves to find the answer by asking her himself.[121][122] Although he is unable to leave as the new king, Sidon decides to start gathering information on his own.[123] He also requests that Link come visit Zora's Domain in the future, declaring that the two of the will always be connected.[124] If "Sidon of the Zora" is the last Main Quest completed during "Regional Phenomena", Dorephan will suggest that Link return to Lookout Landing.[125] Following this conversation, "Sidon of the Zora" will be completed.

Objectives

Stage Description
1 After the Upheaval, sludge started pouring from the sky around Zora's Domain. That foul gunk has caused much suffering.

Yona, the Zora prince's fiancée, filled you in on the troubles at the domain. She asked you to meet with Sidon at Mipha Court on the summit of Ploymus Mountain.
2 You met with Sidon at Mipha Court. He has a hunch that the cause of the sludge is in the sky. In his search for answers, he ordered the Zora historian Jiahto to investigate ancient documents and the fallen ruins.

Speaking with Jiahto at Toto Lake may yield information about Princess Zelda.
3 Speaking with Jiahto and the Zora children led you to King Dorephan, who was injured when a Princess Zelda look-alike loosed a monster upon him. The phenomena troubling the Zora—the sludge, the monster, the princess—all seem connected to the sky.

Sidon will be eager to hear this news.
4 You relayed King Dorephan's story to Sidon. Both Princess Zelda's trail and the destructive sludge connect to the sky above the domain.

Your objectives align with Sidon's. If you find a clue about the watery bridge connecting the Zora to the sky, you should let him know.
4 A pillar of light appeared at East Reservoir Lake. The clues you gathered from the repaired stone slate suggest this will lead you to the watery bridge.

Sidon will want to hear about this. You can find him at Mipha Court.
5 When you told Sidon about the pillar of light at East Reservoir Lake, a sludge monster attacked.

Work with Sidon to repel the fiend.
6 You defeated the monster with Sidon's aid. Yona pushed the prince to confront his fear of loss, and he rose to the occasion. He is ready to investigate the watery bridge with you.

Sidon will wait for you near the pillar of light that appeared in East Reservoir Lake.
7 Sidon used his impressive swimming prowess to create a whirlpool in the lake, revealing some kind of entrance on the lake bed.

This may lead to clues about the watery bridge. Jump into the whirlpool and investigate.
8 Upon jumping into the whirlpool, you found a vast space filled with ancient ruins.

You may find a clue about the watery bridge among them.
9 When you activated a mysterious device in the Ancient Zora Waterworks, a jet of water erupted from the ruins high above.

Even a Hylian could climb the resulting waterfall by wearing the Zora armor.
10 Resolving to explore the sky island, you arrived at some vast ruins that may hide the answers you seek.

Follow Sidon, who went on ahead.
11 After climbing the waterfall and entering the ruins, you found the source of the sludge plaguing the Zora.

Sidon suggested that it may be possible to wash away the foul substance using the water in the enormous water vessels.
12 You poured water from the vessels onto the sludge, but it was inadequate to cleanse the area. It seems even more water is needed. A mysterious voice indicated locations that may be of assistance.

Work with Sidon to open all of the faucets.
13 When you washed away the sludge with the water vessels, a monster suddenly emerged from the muck. This must be the culprit behind the sludge!

It's time to work with Sidon to finish this.
14 You combined forces with Sidon to defeat the monster producing the sludge. What remained of the substance dispersed, taking the threat to the Zora along with it.

Sidon was left gazing at the strange stone that appeared when the sludge vanished.
Complete With the defeat of the fiend responsible for the sludge, the trouble afflicting the region was resolved. At the same time, Sidon awakened as a sage.

He promised to rally the domain to assist you, declaring that it's now the Zora's turn to help their hero.

  2. "Right! Let's talk about the Upheaval. It's affected more than just the castle. Reports of other strange phenomena have been coming in from all over Hyrule. Let's take a look at your map. The first report comes from Hebra to the northwest. Next up is Eldin to the northeast. The Gerudo are reporting trouble in the southwest. And finally, there's Lanayru to the east. The strange phenomena are concentrated in these four regions. I can't say for certain, but... I've got the nagging suspicion that we might find out more about Princess Zelda by looking into these phenomena." — Purah (Tears of the Kingdom)

    "In that case, feel free to investigate the area around the domain as thoroughly as you see fit." — Yona (Tears of the Kingdom)
  6. "Oh! I have a lovely idea! If you do not mind, I ask that you please go and meet with Sidon. I am certain that he would be delighted to see you. Sidon can be found at Mipha Court, located at the peak of Ploymus Mountain." — Yona (Tears of the Kingdom)
  7. "Is it...really you?" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  8. "It's good to see you, my friend!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  9. "Link! It has been far too long! I received word that you had gone missing and was beside myself with concern. Whatever could have transpired?!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  10. "To think something like that could have taken place beneath Hyrule Castle! And afterward, you mysteriously awoke on a sky island... The sky... Could it be that the sky is the key to everything after all? Ah, my apologies. I have actually been wondering if those floating sky islands could be the source of the falling sludge?" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  11. "That is why I have tasked a Zora historian with investigating ruin fragments and all historical documents related to the sky. As for me, I am not at liberty to leave this spot at present, as I am uniquely qualified to deal with the sludge here. You see, old friend... This place is the source of the water that flows into Zora's Domain. That is why I must use my power of water manipulation to separate the sludge from our water in order to clean it. If I cease, then the sullied water will flow into our beloved home, and there will be much pain and suffering. That is why I cannot afford to leave here, no matter what." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  12. "Say, Link... Does it not seem that Princess Zelda's whereabouts might be related to the floating sky islands and the ruins? If so, perhaps you should go speak with our historian Jiahto. His many years have blessed him with great wisdom. It is quite possible that he could provide you with some useful information. At present, you should be able to find Jiahto continuing his investigation at Toto Lake." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  13. "By the way... I hope you know that I am truly happy to see you again after such a long time apart, my dearest friend. Visit me anytime you like! Your presence is never anything less than welcome and appreciated." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  14. "What is this?! The stone slate! I can hardly believe my eyes! Link! I must thank you! Oh! Incredible! I can finally read it... Yes, I very well can! Stand upon the land of the sky fish, and behold its lofty view. Among the floating rocks you see, a droplet waits for you. "Through this droplet, shoot an arrow with the mark of the king. Do this task, and you shall reveal a most wondrous thing. "See the watery bridge's resting spot with your own two eyes...that which connects the Zora to the people of the skies."" — Jiahto (Tears of the Kingdom)
  15. "As it mentions the mark of the king, perhaps it would be prudent to consult King Dorephan. I assume that he will be returning from his investigation of the sludge shortly." — Jiahto (Tears of the Kingdom)
  16. "Link. I will now tell you what happened when we last saw Princess Zelda... As well as the reason behind my seclusion here in the Pristine Sanctum. We encountered Princess Zelda just after Hyrule Castle ascended into the sky. Floating islands appeared as if from nowhere...sludge and fragments of ruins began raining down... Muzu and I had left the domain to investigate these strange occurrences. That is when it happened. Princess Zelda descended from the sky accompanied by a sludge monster. What happened next took us by surprise... She then unleashed the beast upon us." — Dorephan (Tears of the Kingdom)
  17. "King Dorephan valiantly vanquished the threat. However... He was gravely injured by the sludge during the battle... As for Princess Zelda, she vanished without a trace. If word got out that Princess Zelda lost her mind and harmed the Zora king... The resulting turmoil would be devastating. That is why were are temporarily remaining hidden within the Pristine Sanctum." — Muzu (Tears of the Kingdom)
  18. "Ah! So you have already spoken with Jiahto! You say that the mark of the king was mentioned on the stone slate that was restored? Hm... Indeed, I do know of it. The mark of the king refers to a Zora king's scale. One of my scales, in other words. I have heard it called by the name you mentioned in an ancient ritual. However, none remain who know how it was used... If this particular scale of mine may prove useful to you, by all means, take a few. There is no need for restraint! This is as nothing to me. If you run out, simply return and acquire more. Wah ha ha!" — Dorephan (Tears of the Kingdom)
  19. "Please inform Sidon about my situation and about the king's scale. Tell him there is no need to worry about me. Tell him that he must go forth and do what needs to be done." — Dorephan (Tears of the Kingdom)
  20. "What?! You say my father was attacked by a monster? And that Princess Zelda unleashed it upon him? What could that possibly mean? Well, for now, I fear all we can do is take my father at his word and try not to let our concern overcome us. Link, thank you for telling me about my father." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  21. "Princess Zelda descending from the sky, not to mention the monster and that filthy sludge... It seems our course is skyward. We now know that the mark of the king written of on the slate refers to my father's scale. The only remaining mystery is that of the land of the sky fish and the floating rock in the shape of a droplet... Stand upon the land of the sky fish... That must be referring to an actual location of some sort. I am sure that if we locate the land of the sky fish, it will lead us to the floating rock that is in the shape of a droplet!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  22. "Link, if you find any leads, please let me know at once." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  23. "When you shot the mark of the king into the droplet visible from the land of the sky fish, a pillar of light appeared in the reservoir in the eastern part of the domain.

    If the writing on the ancient stone slate is correct, this should indicate the hiding place of the watery bridge.

  25. "Lady Yona! It is far too dangerous for you to be here!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
    "Darling, I came here because there is something I need to speak with you about. I have been thinking for quite some time..." — Yona (Tears of the Kingdom)
  26. "Hm? Oh! Hello there, Link!" — Yona (Tears of the Kingdom)
    "What has happened, my friend? Did you figure something out?" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  27. "You solved the ancient stone slate's riddle, and a pillar of light appeared?! If the words upon the stone slate are correct, a path to the sky may open up if we investigate that location... Well done, Link! This is a huge development!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  28. "I see... My dear Sidon. I think that you should go with Link to investigate that pillar of light. As I was just about to say... For a long time, I have been concerned that you are holding yourself back and not acting as freely as I would have expected." — Yona (Tears of the Kingdom)
  29. "But, my love, if you and Link join your powers, I am certain you shall be able to overcome whatever danger waits." — Yona (Tears of the Kingdom)
  30. "This is undoubtedly true. However..." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
    "Whatever is troubling you, Sidon? Why are you hesitating so?" — Yona (Tears of the Kingdom)
    "I... It is simply that..." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  31. "That monster is covered in sludge! Could it be the foul beast that harmed Father?" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)

    "... You are right, as ever. It is up to you, milady! Link! Please, I must ask that you must fight at my side once more!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  33. "The beast is protecting its body with sludge! It is a mighty opponent, certainly, but we must not falter. When an opportunity presents itself, call out to me! I shall use my power to envelop you in water, thusly shielding you from our foe... At that point, you may shoot forth the water as an attack by swinging your weapon!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  34. "You did it, Link! Take that, foul beast of the sludge!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  35. "Is everyone all right?" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  36. "We are unharmed." — Yona (Tears of the Kingdom)
    "Thank goodness. Lady Yona, if something had happened to you... I... Ahem, in any case, it is possible that another monster will appear. I suggest that you return to the domain at once." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  37. "Thank you for the sentiment, Sidon. However, more importantly, we must consider what Sir Link spoke of earlier. The pillar of light that he said appeared at the reservoir begs to be investigated. This may be our opportunity to learn the cause of the sludge falling from the sky or even Princess Zelda's whereabouts. Leave this place to us, dearest Sidon. Your friend needs your help getting to the bottom of this mystery." — Yona (Tears of the Kingdom)
  38. "W-well... Of course it would be best for me to accompany him. However, I cannot leave you alone in this dangerous place!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
    "Did you not entrust this task to us already? We will not be on our own for long. We shall be just fine." — Yona (Tears of the Kingdom)
  39. "But..." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
    "Sidon, my darling... I truly appreciate that you worry so for my safety. It speaks to the kindness in your heart. But you are the prince of the Zora. One day, you will lead the people of your beloved domain. I can see right through you, whether you want me to or not. You are yielding to the fear of losing someone you love again. You must overcome your past and face whatever the future holds with courage." — Yona (Tears of the Kingdom)
  40. "But... I..." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
    "Enough is enough! You are not acting like yourself! You must leave this place to me! Sweet Sidon... Do not get lost in the past. You must keep moving ever onward. Just follow your heart, as you always do!" — Yona (Tears of the Kingdom)
  41. "Like my old self... Like I always do..." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
    "It is all right. I swear it. I am not going anywhere." — Yona (Tears of the Kingdom)
    "I see... And there it is, clear as day... I was giving in to my fear of once more losing someone I love... I... I... Ahaaaaaaaaa! You are right, Yona! I will not give in to this fear! Nor forsake my trust in you! I leave this place to you, my love." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  42. "Off we go, Link! To the pillar of light! I shall blaze on ahead, my friend!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  43. "Hee-hee... It seems Sidon has finally put his doubts behind him and returned to his usual fearless self. I am so glad. All this time he was clinging to regret over being unable to save his precious sister, Mipha... My poor, tormented Sidon. And to think he was unknowingly paralyzed from taking action because he feared losing me as well... Yet he has overcome this trial and placed his faith in me. At last, the Sidon I know and love has come back to me. Link... Please take good care of my dear Sidon. He is the sun in my sky." — Yona (Tears of the Kingdom)
  44. "So that is the clue for reaching the sky!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  45. "Just now... What was that? Never mind. Now is not the time for flights of fancy. Just where could that light be coming from..." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  46. "I have an idea!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  47. "It's just as I thought! I can see an entrance at the bottom of the lake!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  48. "I'll make a path for you! Dive in, Link!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  49. "A waterfall! A waterfall descended from the sky!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  50. "Link, what happened? Is this your doing?" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  51. "Aha! So you activated a mysterious device in the ruins... And then the waterfall appeared... Hm... Ah! I believe I understand! To a Zora, a waterfall is no different from a path. That must be the meaning behind "watery bridge." Yes, it must! If we climb this waterfall, we shall ascend into the sky!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  52. "Link! I knew you could do it! My belief in you is as well placed as ever." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  53. "...here... Come here... Come to me..." — Sage of Water (Tears of the Kingdom)
  54. "It is happening again... Is someone calling to me? What was that sound I just heard... Well... In any case, we now have a path forward. All that is left is to press ever onward!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  55. "Link! If you wear the Zora armor, you can climb the waterfall as well! You must acquire said armor from Yona at Mipha Court!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  56. "With your Zora armor, you can climb the waterfall as well! Let us be off to our next adventure, Link!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  57. "How incredible!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  58. "What is this place... My body...it feels light as a feather! This is a strange place indeed, but right now, we must focus on locating the source of the sludge!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  59. "Link! It's time to divide and conquer! Let's split up for the time being." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  60. "This really is such a strange place... My body felt light as air, allowing me to soar surprisingly high when I was climbing the waterfalls!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  61. "As we are in an unfamiliar place, let us proceed with caution. Link, please take care as you forge ahead." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  62. "Done and done! Link! Let us keep pushing forward!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  63. "From what I can tell, all of the sludge waterfalls are flowing from the ruins above here. In other words, if there is a source for this sludge somewhere, it must be..." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  64. "Link! Once you are amply prepared, let us dive right in!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  65. "[I'm ready.] Right! The time has finally arrived. Off we go!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  66. "How magnificent... To think that such a structure was floating in the sky above our own Zora's Domain!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  67. "Link! Look! That is surely the source of the sludge. I am certain of it. We must do something about it..." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  68. "Link! You see it, do you not? If we could only make use of that water..." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  69. "Oh! ... It seems it did not work... But you saw it, too, did you not? Using that mechanism did have an effect! There simply was not enough water..." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  70. "Hm?! That sound again..." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
    "Cherished kin... This is the source of the pure waters of Zora's Domain." — Sage of Water (Tears of the Kingdom)
  71. "Use your power to turn on the four faucets, and you can collect water here. Heed my words..." — Sage of Water (Tears of the Kingdom)
  72. "It happened yet again! Only this time, I heard the voice loud and clear! The four faucets... I see! If we turn those on, we can acquire more water for the water vessels! Right! Let us get to work, Link. Together! With our powers combined, there is nothing in this world that can stop us!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  73. "Yes! You got one flowing! This is great—just three to go!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  74. "Well done, Link! Now you just need to open the remaining two!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  75. "All right! Just one more, Link!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  76. "You did it, Link! OK, they're all filled up! Now we just need to use the central device!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  77. "Look! The sludge dissolved! The domain is surely safe now." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  78. "Not good!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  79. "This strange creature must be responsible!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  80. "Get ready! Let's go, Link!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  81. "Sidon, my cherished kin." — Sage of Water (Tears of the Kingdom)
  82. "That voice again. You're the one we've been hearing this whole time?" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
    "Indeed. I am your ancestor from a time long past." — Sage of Water (Tears of the Kingdom)
  83. "I served the first King of Hyrule as a Zora warrior and a sage who, like you, could direct the flow of water." — Sage of Water (Tears of the Kingdom)
  84. "You are the pride of the Zora. Your fluid, graceful movements as you fight... I would expect nothing less from my descendant." — Sage of Water (Tears of the Kingdom)
  85. "You bested the monster that sullied our domain, but it was a servant of a greater evil—the Demon King. His true purpose was to prevent you from obtaining the stone that you just found—my secret stone." — Sage of Water (Tears of the Kingdom)
    "That stone that you are wearing?" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  86. "Yes. And it is important you know more about the stone and the Demon King. So listen closely to what I have to say. It concerns the Imprisoning War and the destiny of our people." — Sage of Water (Tears of the Kingdom)
  87. "Though we Zora live long lives, this all happened in a time ancient even to us. The kingdom of Hyrule was still in its infancy. A great evil, the Demon King, appeared. He invaded Hyrule and sought to cut the new kingdom's time short." — Sage of Water (Tears of the Kingdom)
  88. "But Rauru—the first king of Hyrule—brought me and five other warriors together to oppose him. To fight the Demon King, Rauru entrusted us with secret stones. Treasured artifacts that amplify the power of those who carry them. As the Sage of Water, I bore a secret stone and fought alongside my fellow sages in battle." — Sage of Water (Tears of the Kingdom)
  89. "However, the Demon King's power was overwhelming. Even my strongest defenses could not stop his ferocious attacks. In the end, our leader realized it would not be possible to defeat the Demon King outright. He chose to end the battle by sealing the Demon King away...sacrificing himself in the process." — Sage of Water (Tears of the Kingdom)
  90. "Some time later... Another of the six sages—the Sage of Time—came to visit me, and the destiny of the Zora was made crystal clear." — Sage of Water (Tears of the Kingdom)
  91. "The magic restraining the Demon King will eventually be undone. When that happens, a noble swordsman, named Link, will oppose him." — Zelda (Tears of the Kingdom)
  92. "We must help. Lend him your power... He will need the Zora's control over water!" — Zelda (Tears of the Kingdom)
  93. "The course of the Zora's future was clear." — Sage of Water (Tears of the Kingdom)
  94. "It would be our honor to aid in defeating the Demon King. I swear to you that, when the great evil returns, the Zora Sage of Water will awaken once more. The Zora people and their sage will fight alongside your swordsman." — Sage of Water (Tears of the Kingdom)
  95. "That is everything there is to share of the Imprisoning War and of the destiny of the Zora." — Sage of Water (Tears of the Kingdom)
  96. "Zora's Domain is once again safe, thanks to you. However, the Demon King continues to threaten all of Hyrule. Sidon, my cherished kin. You must take up my secret stone and honor the vow I made to the Sage of Time. Fight alongside the swordsman Link." — Sage of Water (Tears of the Kingdom)
  97. "It's my destiny to fight by your side." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  98. "I came here so that I could save Zora's Domain... but it looks like all of Hyrule will need my help! I'll do all I can. Just as my ancestor did. I will accept this secret stone!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  99. "I am the Sage of Water. Behold! This is my new power!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  100. "Here, Link! Your hand." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  101. "I, Sidon, the Sage of Water, swear that I will fight by your side." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  102. "Please accept this! It is proof of my vow." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  103. "With that ring, you will always have my power with you!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  104. "We're partnered up again! Yes! All right, let's head back home." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  105. "Link! Welcome back!" — Yona (Tears of the Kingdom)
    "Link! Have you seen? The sludge has vanished without a trace!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  106. "Link. Thanks to your courage, the inhabitants of Zora's Domain are safe once again. No words could express the depths of my gratitude. Thank you, hero. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you." — Dorephan (Tears of the Kingdom)
  107. "As for you, Sidon... Though Link certainly played a key role, your own efforts to save the domain were nothing short of magnificent. I have always believed in you, Sidon. Now, you have unequivocally proven your worthiness to bear the crown. That is why I shall joyously take this opportunity to pass the throne to you." — Dorephan (Tears of the Kingdom)
  108. "Father... This is so sudden..." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
    "No, it only seems that way. In truth, it has been heavy on my mind for some time." — Dorephan (Tears of the Kingdom)
  109. "Sidon, my son... It is time to ascend the throne as the new king. Take Yona's hand, and as one, lead Zora's Domain to a brighter tomorrow." — Dorephan (Tears of the Kingdom)
  110. "Me... The king?" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  111. "Thank you, Father! I will not let you down! I swear it." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  112. "That is the spirit, my boy! Now! Accept your place upon the throne. The finest swordsman in all of Hyrule shall bear witness to this momentous occasion!" — Dorephan (Tears of the Kingdom)
  113. "Silence, everyone!" — Muzu (Tears of the Kingdom)
  114. "I hereby inherit this crown from my father, The Exalted Dorephan. From this moment on, I shall be king of the Zora!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  115. "At this same precious moment, I ask that you also open your hearts to your new queen, my beloved Yona!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  116. "The sludge threatens us no more. We are once again free to swim through crystal waters beneath azure skies without fear. We could not have achieved this without our dear King Sidon, our heroic Sir Link, and all of us who call the domain home. I am so proud and so very grateful to count myself among the Zora of the domain." — Yona (Tears of the Kingdom)
  117. "However! That does not mean that all matters have been resolved." — Yona (Tears of the Kingdom)
    "Right you are, my love! So long as darkness lurks in the depths of Hyrule, this peace we have fought so hard for could vanish like a bubble on a needle. We shall not allow that! It is now time for the Zora to help Link prevail! Everyone, I ask that you lend him your strength! Doing just that shall be the first task that I and my partner in life and in leadership shall undertake as your king and queen." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  118. "First things first, my friend. Regarding the whereabouts of Princess Zelda... When I obtained the secret stone, we saw a vision of that woman...the Sage of Time. I am certain it was far more than a passing resemblance. That was the Princess Zelda whom you and I know so well." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  119. "As for the Princess Zelda who appeared in the domain and attacked Father... Could it be that the princess we saw in my ancestor's era and the one my father saw in this era are not one and the same?" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  120. "In stark contrast, the look-alike sighted in the present day is harming others and even attacked Father. As such, I can only believe that our princess is somehow in the bygone era of my ancient ancestor. However, if my hunch is correct, what is the true identity of the Princess Zelda who is running rampant in this era?" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  121. "Hm... Questions upon questions. It is painfully clear that we have no choice but to find the princess and ask her directly!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  122. "Hm. Whatever the answer, it is painfully clear that we have no choice but to find her and ask her directly!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  123. "Link. As I have just ascended the throne, I must offer my sincerest apologies for being unable to accompany you. Still, I shall continue gathering information about our lost Princess Zelda." — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  124. "Please promise that you shall once again grace our fair Zora's Domain with your presence sooner rather than later! Whatever comes to pass, know that you and I will always be connected...by the power of a sage, no less!" — Sidon (Tears of the Kingdom)
  125. "That reminds me... Link, as I understand it, you have already visited Rito Village, Goron City, and Gerudo Town. I am certain that our allies at Lookout Landing would benefit from the information you have gathered. It may be worthwhile to return there and report your findings." — Dorephan (Tears of the Kingdom)
