It’s no secret that The Legend of Zelda is one of the most popular game series of all time. As a result, there has been a variety of Zelda cameos and references in different TV shows, songs, and even other video games. Some of these awesome references in pop culture date back to the series’ first game and, over time, there have been nods to other games in the series. Now, if you’re hoping to look back on the moments you may have missed, The Leaderboard channel recently released a video explaining the different Zelda appearances in pop culture; and you might be surprised to see how influential the Zelda series is.

The video includes Zelda references in some older, popular TV shows such as Robot Chicken, South Park, and of course The Powepuff Girls. But that’s not where the video ends just yet. The Leaderboard includes Smosh’s Zelda rap video as well as cameos in newer TV shows such as Rick and Morty and The Amazing World of Gumball. If you want to check out the full list of these amazing Zelda references, be sure to check out the video above and get ready to be feel some nostalgia coursing through your veins.
