Sheik is a playable character in the Super Smash Bros. series. She is from The Legend of Zelda series and debuted in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time as a major ally.


Sheik first appears before Link soon after his spirit is unsealed after being contained within the Chamber of Sages for seven years. Upon meeting Link, Sheik reveals that now that he is old enough to properly be the Hero of Time and has acquired the Light Medallion from Rauru, the Sage of Light, he must also awaken five other Sages and acquire their respective Medallions in order to become powerful enough to stop Ganondorf and save Hyrule.

Following this, Sheik appears before Link at various instances, and uses her harp to teach him warp songs to help him on his quest. In addition to teaching Link the songs, she imparts words of wisdom to him before mysteriously disappearing each time, typically via the explosive flash of a Deku Nut. When all six Sages are awakened, Link arrives at the Temple of Time near the end of the game and is greeted by Sheik, who uses the Triforce of Wisdom to reveal herself as Princess Zelda.
