The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time manga (ゼルダの伝説 時のオカリナ, Zeruda no Densetsu: Toki no Okarina) 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.

Volume two contains two extra chapters at the end: "The Skull Kid and the Mask", narrating the meeting of Skull Kid, and "Rouru of the Watarara", involving the manga-only Watarara race.
