Hyrule Castle is the seat of the Hyrulean Royal Family in The Legend of Zelda. It has appeared on several occassions that the Mario and Zelda series have had crossovers.

In the Super Smash Bros. series[edit]

Hyrule Castle is a lengthy stage in Super Smash Bros. based off how it appeared in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time . In the single-player mode, Hyrule Castle is the first stage the player battles on. During gameplay, a whirlwind will occasionally appear about every 30 seconds; any character in it is blown upwards, and sometimes out of the stage if sufficiently damaged. The castle also has a little shack at the far right end of the stage, which may act as an additional platform.

This level serves as Link's home stage in the game. In Super Smash Bros. Melee, a similar but much larger stage called Temple takes its place.

Hyrule Castle, in it's The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess incarnation, also appears in the background of the Bridge of Eldin stage in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

Mario Kart 8[edit]

Hyrule Castle appears as part of the downloadable course Hyrule Circuit. As the castle is surrounded by Zora's River, racers will access it by using a Glider Pad in Hyrule Field to fly to the roof. When the racer enters the castle, they will drive on a small staircase to a large chamber that houses several Rupees and the Master Sword resting on the Pedestal of Time, surrounded by several glass monuments; a small glider pad will occassionally appear in front of the Pedestal of Time, providing a significant speedboost if the Master Sword is touched. The racer will then drive out of the castle through a bridge leading into Hyrule Castle Town.
