Returning to Forsaken Fortress, Link confronted the evil Phantom Ganon, before reuniting with his sister. Tetra and her crew appeared to help Link transport Aryll and the other kidnapped girls to safety while Link fought and defeated Helmaroc King, before confronting the Ruler of Evil, Ganondorf.

They discovered that the Sages of the Master Sword had been killed by Ganondorf, and where forced to seek out their successors in order to restore the Master Sword. The Sage of Earth turned out to be the Rito Medli and the Sage of Wind turned out to be the Korok Makar. After taking each Sage to their respective temple and having them pray to restore power to the Master Sword, the King of Red Lions tasked Link with obtaining the pieces of the Triforce of Courage hidden throughout the Great Sea. With both the Master Sword and Triforce of Courage in hand, Link returned the Tower of the Gods, where he was given the title, Hero of Winds by the King of Red Lions, before descending back to Hyrule.
