The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time manga is a manga by Akira Himekawa loosely based on the story of Ocarina of Time. It was released in Japan by Shogakukan in 2000 and made available in English through Viz Media in 2008. The manga is split into two parts, fanonically called the "Child Chapters" and the "Adult Chapters", though this is slightly misleading, as the "Child Chapters" contain several chapters following Link after he has already pulled the Master Sword from its pedestal and aged seven years.
The contents of the first volume of the manga are broken into two parts with a total of ten chapters. The contents are as follows:
Ocarina of Time
- Chapter 1: The Great Deku Tree Incident
One day in the Kokiri Forest, a young boy, Link, awakens to find the Great Deku Tree in grave danger. When Link and Mido discover that Gohma has been sucking the energy out of the Great Deku Tree, they challenge her in battle and manage to kill her.
- Chapter 2: Link's Journey Begins
- Chapter 3: The Mystery of the Triforce
Princess Zelda tells Link of her dreams and the story of the Triforce.
- Chapter 4: The Search for the Spiritual Stone of Fire!

Hero of Time
- Chapter 1: Sword of Legend: The Master Sword

Link revisits the Kokiri Forest in an attempt to find the Sage of Forest, Saria. Link finds Mido, who doesn't recognize him, and saves his childhood friend.

The contents of the second volume of the manga continues from the second half of Part One and also includes two additional bonus stories. The contents are as follows:
Hero of Time
- Chapter 5: Shadow Guide: Sheik
- Chapter 6: The Haunted Wasteland
Link, still guided by Sheik, enters a vast desert. Sheik supposedly betrays Link, handing him over to the evil Gerudo.

Link carries an unconscious Sheik away to safety.
- Chapter 7: A Fated Reunion
Link, with the injured and still unconscious Sheik, camps at an oasis. Link goes to get water and, upon his return, finds Sheik concious and without his face wrap. Sheik removes the rest of his disguise, revealing his true identity as Princess Zelda.

Ganondorf appears and kidnaps Zelda. Link, Nabouru and several Gerudo travel to Ganondorf's Castle. The Sages create a bridge and Link confronts him inside the keep. Link barely defeats him and the castle collapses.
