- — In-game description
Nayru's Love is an item from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. It is a magic spell that Link receives from the Great Fairy of Magic found near the Desert Colossus. At the cost of magic, it creates a blue crystal-like shield that envelops Link, preventing him from taking damage, though he will still be knocked back, or down, if hit by a powerful blow. While Nayru's Love is in effect, Link is unable to use any equipment or abilities that require the consumption of magic power. The spell ends after a certain amount of time has passed; when one use nears its end, the shield begins to blink before fading entirely. The sole enemy that can cause damage while Nayru's Love is in use is Ganon, though the effect of his attacks will still be lessened.
Non-canonical appearances Edit
Nayru's Love is Princess Zelda's standard B attack as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. When she performs it, she shatters the crystal just after creating it, harming her enemies with its shards and reflecting projectiles.
