Story & Themes
Despite the loss of her body, Zelda remains behind as a spirit. She travels with Link to the Tower of Spirits where they meet Anjean, a Lokomo (a guardian of the Spirit Tracks), who tells the two of them that the Spirit Tracks are disappearing because the demon king Malladus is slowly gaining the power to escape from his restraints. In order to stop him, Link and Zelda must restore four rail maps in the four farthest corners of the kingdom. After the fourth map is restored, Byrne is revealed to be a former Lokomo and the apprentice of Anjean who'd later defected and joined forces with Cole. When Link and Zelda return to the tower, they encounter Byrne and, at the top of the tower, Malladus' awakened spirit. He successfully possesses Zelda's body, then turns on Byrne before leaving with Cole on the Demon Train.
After gathering special items with which to fight Malladus, Link battles the Demon Train, Cole, and Zelda's possessed body. Malladus leaves Zelda's body and possesses Cole instead, but Link is able to defeat this new entity with Zelda's help. With Malladus destroyed forever, Anjean, Byrne, and the other Lokomos ascend into the sky while Link and Zelda watch, hands intertwined.
