I just finished Oracle of Ages on a GameBoy Color emulator. Going back to the menu, I noticed that Nayru now appears in the file selection screen next to Link.

Screenshot of the selection screen

What does it mean? Is Nayru now playable or is it just because I finished the game?

  • Well... you just finished the game. Why does it have to mean that she might be playable? Aug 19 '16 at 14:43

    As she appears next to Link, I though that it could be a possibility... However I found nothing that support that option.

The Oracle of Ages (OoA) and Oracle of Seasons (OoS) games are special. Both of them feature a world where Link has to save the respective oracle (Din in OoA, Nayru in OoS). And compared to most other games of the Franchise, the game isn't over when you saved the oracle.

Instead, you will unlock the third oracle, Farore, the oracle of secrets, which allows you to use secret codes found in the other game (OoS) in yours (OoA) and vice versa (as long as the games are linked, IIRC). This will unlock the actual final boss, after both candles of destruction* are lit.

So Nayru/Din on your game is just an indicator that you've saved the oracle and are now ready to start over in the other game and/or get ready for the final encounter. Also note that Nayru now sings in the town again.**

* that's the literal translation of the German term, I don't know the English one
** I'd like to add a screenshot, but I've only played both games on cartridge

  • Nayru is a singer. Din is the dancer. Aug 19 '16 at 20:04
  • @Michaellogg: Whoops, thanks. Has been a while since I've played those. Still, I should finally get it into my head: Din/red/power; Nayru/blue/wisdom; Farore/green/courage…

Just because you finished the game (and can use the code feature to start a linked game in Oracle of Season).
