Zelda Redesign: Thunderbird by Samolo Zelda Redesign: Thunderbird by Samolo
Thunderbird from Adventure of Link.

I never, ever could clearly understand what the hell thunderbird was... it was supossed to be a statue? a bird? a humanoid figure? who knows...

This is my take on the boss who was such a pain in the gut.

I agree with you completely in not knowing what this thing was. Your redesign is world's better than what it looked like on screen. Well done.

Yes, he was, it was a pain to save magic to use thunder, jump and who knows how many other spells and keep jumping and dodging popcorn-like fireballs. Oh it would be cool to see it again... they should remake those game for 3DS like Ocarina.

Yeah I got to him many times only to realize I didn't even have enough magic to fight him x_x

I believe the Thunderbird from AoL was based off of Garuda, an eastern guardian diety:

Regardless, I really like this redesign. It's very stylized. :nod:
