Zelda models by William

12-05-2013: William sent me another picture, showing some new papercraft models he made since last time! ;o)

In the background, right next to Beast Ganon, is my very own Menu Link, the adult version from Ocarina of Time!

And in the top left, you can see the Moon from Majora’s Mask!

It actually took William quite some time to track that one down, because there were different versions at one time, but most of the original download links are gone now… :o(

And once William finally did manage to find a working download link, it turned out the template was incomplete, so he had to improvise and use one of the pages twice to make a complete Moon!

So that was a bit troublesome, but luckily William was able to overcome the problem with some smart thinking. ;o)

Most of the other paper models in the picture are the ones William already showed us before, except maybe one: I think the “Donkey Kong” poster on the wall in the background might actually not be just a poster, but the papercraft diorama piece made by Linkdude101 on Nintendo Papercraft!

16-10-2012: As you can see in this picture, William from Sweden made several more papercraft models since last time, including my own young Princess Zelda!

The other, new paper models you can see are made by billybob884:

  • Nintendo 64 logo (link)
  • Ganon in his beast-form (link)

Especially that last one took up much of his spare time the last three months, but if you see this group picture, you’ll agree that it was time well spent! ;o)

26-03-2012: William built not one, but two new models since last time: picture

The first one is young Link, who was just minding his own business, no doubt on his way to the next adventure, when a big bully suddenly blocked the road (read: bookshelf).

That big bully was of course Ganondorf, but even though he’s almost twice as big as young Link, I think he’s going to regret bullying Link like that… ;o)

04-01-2012: William from Sweden found my papercraft webpage by accident, but he liked the paper models so much that he decided to try it out himself!

These are the two paper models he built: picture

One is Majora’s Mask, and it’s hard to see, but he even made a small loop on its back so he can hang it on his wall.

I know what you’re thinking of course, but I think William doesn’t have to be afraid of Majora‘s evil powers in the mask: Fierce Deity Link will deal with Majora if he tries anything suspicous! ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!


Young princess Zelda by DanteSagittariKnight

21-04-2013: This wonderful version of young princess Zelda was built by DanteSagittariKnight from Chile!

Even though the picture is a bit dark, you can see how DanteSagittariKnight chose not to make sharp folds of all the fold lines on the templates.

As a result, you get a papercraft princess Zelda that’s a bit more smoother looking, and I think it looks great! ;o)

If you want to see more great things, you can visit DanteSagittariKnight’s DeviantArt gallery, where you can see several other papercraft models that he built, and also the drawings he made: link

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

Ocarina of Time adult Link by Metallica005

08-04-2013: Although my papercraft Ocarina of Time adult Link has “only” 57 parts (including the Hylian Shield and the Master Sword), Metallica005 says it felt like there were 100! ;o)

It took him 8 hours to fold and glue them all together, but with the experience he has in making cosplay props (as you can see on his DeviantArt page: link), it’s no surprise that his papercraft Link turned out great too!

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

Zelda models by Jose Vazquez

15-02-2013: Jose built my papercraft Twilight Link before, but as you can see, this time he made some changes so he could put his arm in a different position!

This way, Link can be in a more relaxed stance (maybe a bit too relaxed even…? ;o)

Jose also opened up the top of the sheath on Link’s back, so the Master Sword can be put inside: picture

Why he needed to do that? Well, it’s so that Link can also use other weapons like this Ball and Chain from the Paper Zelda website: picture

It’s a good thing it’s only made from paper, because otherwise getting hit by that thing would cause some serious headaches…! ;o)

18-11-2012: Here’s another Ocarina of Time adult/Menu Link), this time built by Jose Vazquez: picture

As you can see, Jose even made it so that he can put the Hylian Shield on Link’s back and the Master Sword into the scabbard.

Adult/Menu Link is not the first paper model that Jose built: some other papercraft models of mine that he built include Epona and Link, Twilight Link, Zora armor Link (which he modified a bit just like Toni Müller did) and even Super Smash Bros. Melee Link!

Jose also built lots of paper models from other people too, like another Ocarina of Time Link (from Icthus7), a Hylian Knight (from Nintendo Papercraft) and a recoloured Twilight Princess > Skyward Sword Link (from Paper Zelda): group picture

You can also see a few videos of Jose’s builds on his YouTube channel, so be sure to check it out: link

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Legend of Zelda models by Sean Fogarty

28-11-2012: You can never have too many papercraft Links, Sean must have thought! ;o)

From left to right in the back row you can see a few Links from my own papercraft webpage:

And in the front row, you can see two papercraft Links made by Chokipeta as a bonus gift in the Japanese Nintendo magazine Dengeki some years ago:

  • Wind Waker Link
  • Four Sword Adventures Link

But even though they’re all from different games, as you can see, they’re getting along very nicely! ;o)

14-11-2012: Another group picture of papercraft Link(s): picture

This time it’s Epona Link, Melee Link, and the new Menu Link that I only finished a few days ago!

Epona Link and Melee Link are models that Sean already built earlier, and he only needs to do a few more parts on Menu Link and then he’ll have finished all three regular adult Links I made so far. ;o)

05-11-2012: Now here’s something you don’t see in your average Zelda game…: picture

Ocarina of Time Epona Link, Super Smash Bros. Melee Link, and Majora’s Mask Link have killed a big wolf and are planning to eat its head…?!

But hopefully they will realize that the wolf is actually wolf Link, the alternate form of Twilight Princess Link (“Um, guys…?”) and refrain from eating him…! ;o)

18-10-2012: Sean told me about the new papercraft models he made earlier, and here’s a picture of his 2 favourite models: picture

You’ll recognize them as Link from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and Auron, from Final Fantasy X of course. ;o)

They’re both characters that don’t take any nonsense, so it’s a good thing Sean did such a great job building them! ;o)

Update 14-10-2012: Sean tells me he has been quite busy, building two of my most challenging papercraft models (which both happen to be Legend of Zelda models) namely Super Smash Bros. Melee Link and wolf Link!

He also built the black mage Lulu, from Final Fantasy X , but of course he’s still a Zelda fan, so he also built Majora’s Mask and a Spirit Tracks Phantom, from the Paper Zelda website. ;o)

Update 18-08-2012: Sean has been busy building Sora, Cloud and Auron as well! (he tells me Auron is his new, favourite papercraft model! ;o)

Videos of Sora are already on his Youtube channel again (video 1 | video 2) and more videos are on the way! ;o)

Update 12-07-2012: Sean let me know that he made two other papercraft Zelda models besides the two already mentioned!

Before making Twilight Link, he already made Zora armor Link, and after young Link, he also made Oni Link. ;o)

He uploaded a new video of those two here: link

Don’t forget to check out his other videos, he has some tips on building young Link too! ;o)

11-07-2012: Sean told me about a video he made of the papercraft Majora’s Mask young Link that he built!

Here’s a screenshot of it, and the full video can be found here: link

But wait: Sean built Twilight Princess Link too! ;o) That video can be on his Youtube channel as well: link

That one took him about 4 days to make, and I think he did a great job on both of them!

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Sora + Zelda models by Angélique

23-11-2012: Angélique showed me this picture of my papercraft Sora that she built, taken on top of her keyboard synthesizer!

Maybe Sora is a bit confused, because a keyboard is completely different from a keyblade of course…! ;o)

Because Angélique normally builds much bigger papercraft models, Sora was a bit more challenging than she was used to, but as you can see, Sora turned out really great nonetheless: picture 2 | picture 3

And now you are all probably dying to see all the other papercraft models built by Angélique?

Well you’re in luck, because she made a whole site dedicated to her papercraft hobby: Papercraft Lilik ! ;o)

If you look in the Zelda section there, you can see a few more of my papercraft models that Angélique built, like Epona and Link, Midna, young Link from Majora’s Mask, young princess Zelda and Twilight Link, but be sure to visit the rest of Angelique’s papercraft weblog as well to see all her other models!

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ (and other peoples’! ;o) papercraft models!

Zelda models by Ray Tha Man

22-11-2012: I made a few papercraft Links before, but this is the latest one (Ocarina of Time adult/Menu Link), built by Ray Tha Man! ;o)

As you can see, it turned out really great! Ray also built my King of Red Lions earlier: picture

The figurehead was the hardest part on that one, but it looks very good as well! ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!
