This looks very sexy to a nerd like me!

If, like me, you’re still wiping the drool off of your chin from the sight of the magnificent creation above, then I’m afraid that I have some bad news: it’s not for sale, and it’s one of a kind. Ben Howard put three months work into this chess set and it looks like it was definitely worth the effort. The pieces are split into both good and evil characters from the series.

For a full list of characters included in this chess set hit the jump!

Good pieces
King: Daphnes Nohansen Hyrule
Queen: Princess Zelda
Bishops: Zoras
Knights: Links
Rooks: Gorons
Pawns: Koroks

Evil pieces
King: Ganondorf
Queen: Veran
Bishops: Wizzrobes
Knights: Moblins
Rooks: Octoroks
Pawns: Chu Jellies

Each piece is unique, even down to each individual pawn. Ben also seems to have used the art style from The Wind Waker for each piece, despite the fact that characters such as Veran and the Zoras don’t appear in that game (theorists could argue that Zoras appear in a different form, but for all intents and purposes…).

Just as a special bonus, we thought that we would throw in this comical motion comic by Zac Gorman.

  • Zeldo

    how can i get this?!

    • Astarael

      You can't, I'm afraid – it's not for sale.

  • Astarael

    Anyway, this looks absolutely wonderful! The amount of effort and time put into this clearly shows – it's a magnificent creation.

    • YodaZeltchy

      I knew that bit looked wrong when I was writing it :L

      CBA to change it

      / Laziness

  • Danimus

    That Zora looks like Laruto to me, so the only non Wind Waker character here is Veran. Not that I’m complaining…

    • Astarael

      Aye, you're right – it looks just like her.

    • There's another Zora, so unless Laruto cloned herself, that's not Laruto.

      • cloverplayer

        They're both Laruto, just like the knights are both Link.

      • Ashmic

        don't be a smartass

      • Jason

        Gorons were not in Wind Waker either, well they didnt look like that at least

        • Caleb

          They were in Phantom Hourglass, though, and their design here looks just like that.

        • Daisy

          There were gorons, they were trade merchants. if you unequip all the bagage they have you actually do get that statue.

  • Poe Princess Mara

    Awesome! But I think Link should have been the King XD.

    • Guil.

      Link has always been the heroic knight so no he shouldn't be king. Hyrule already has a king otherwise Zelda would bee queen not a princess.

      • Poe Princess Mara

        I know that, it's just he's such a major character you'd think he'd be the most important piece on the board.

    • cloverplayer

      that would be lame, he would be the worst piece on the game board!

  • GorCoronSumo

    So cool, but knights should be Darknuts

  • there was zoras (or zora…) in the wind waker: Laruto the wind sage.

  • its amazing how even no chu looks the same. clearly a lot of effort and it all showed in the end!

  • Keimori

    alow me to help.

    King: just make a OoT styled King Daphanes, I'd asume he'd be king during that time, maybe make him a smidge younger.
    Queen: Zelda (ether age'll do)
    Knights: Link (make one Adult Link the other Young Link)
    Rooks: Gorons (take your pick)
    Bishop: Zoras (agian take your pick)
    Pawns: Hylain Soliders(and their shorts)

    King: Ganondorf
    Queen: Naboru
    Knights: Phantom Ganon(on his horse)
    Rooks: Darknuts
    Bishops: Koume & Kotake
    Pawns: valious low level monsters (IE deku scrubs, Skultulas bokobabas, ect.)

    That's awesome

    I would so buy a Zelda chess set if they ever make any commercially in the future.

  • that's…. that's so awesome. I want one!

  • Jeff

    I would make a Majora's Mask theme chess set


    King: either Tatl or the Mask Salesman
    Queen: Fierce Deity Link
    Knights: Link
    Rook: Gorons
    Bishop: Zoras
    Pawns: Deku Scrubs

    King: either Tael or Skull Kid
    Queen: Majora's Wrath
    Knights: Iron Knuckles
    Rook: ?
    Bishop: Wizzrobes
    Pawns: ?

    • jtf337

      rook = eyegore or stone enemies in stone tower.
      pawns = chu chus or bombchus.

  • kaepora gaebora

    If we were going with a wind waker theme I would have made helmaroc king the queen even though it is a he, don't get me wrong it's still amazing, i hope he makes more sets for the other titles 😀

  • Danimus

    You know the entire good side could be staffed by different incarnations of Link?

  • cdx75xmx

    *managed *more stupid *faggots *anyway

    If you mean Rito, you are wrong. There IS a Zora in TWW, it's the spirit of the dead Earth Sage.

  • Chu-Chu Train

    I look pretty good!

  • Danimus

    Thank you, troll! But your website is on another server.

  • Zelda fan

    pretty cool
