Story & Themes
Together, Link and Zelda escape through the sewers and arrive at a sanctuary where a man tells them that Agahnim is planning to free Ganon from the Dark World. The only force that can defeat him in the Master Sword, and so Link travels through Hyrule collecting three medallions which will allow him to wield the sword. However, the Sanctuary is attacked right when Link is about to draw the Master Sword from its resting place, and, rushing back, he finds that Agahnim has spirited Zelda away to the Dark World. Link and Agahnim fight, but the latter sends him to the Dark World as well.
Trapped, Link embarks an the second leg of his quest, seeking the Seven Sages who, with their combined powers, allow him access to Agahnim at Ganon's Tower. After defeating both Agahnim and Ganon, Link is finally able to restore the Dark World and Hyrule to their original, unblemished states.
