Lord Jabu-Jabu


[edit] Background

A giant fish that the Zora's worship as their patron deity. A figurehead character, he plays virtually no role as a character in the series, though his belly is one of the dungeons that Link must traverse as a child in Ocarina of Time.

[edit] Appearances in the Series

[edit] Ocarina of Time

In The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time, Lord Jabu-Jabu resides behind the Zora's Domains in his own private lake. King Zora refers to him as "The Great Jabu-Jabu", and hints to Link that he' been acting a little "green under the gills" lately. Turns out that Lord Jabu-Jabu swallowed a nasty parasite - Barinade - as well as the Zora Princess, Ruto. In order to restore peace to the Zora's and save Ruto, Link must venture into Lord Jabu-Jabu's belly and defeat Barinade. Afterward, he is rewarded by Princess Ruto with the Zora's Sapphire, and proposal for marriage.

When Link returns to the Zora's Domain seven years later, it has completely frozen over. Lord Jabu-Jabu is nowhere to be found, although in his place is a rather large chunk of ice. It's possible that he too was frozen when Ganondorf visited the Zoras.

[edit] Oracle of Ages

In The Legend of Zelda Oracle of Ages, Lord Jabu-Jabu resides in the Zora Village. In the past, he's nothing more than a tiny fish. However, in the present he is fully grown. Link must venture into his belly and defeat the vile jellyfish - Plasmarine, if he wants to find the Rolling Sea, one of the Essences of Time.
