The Evolutionary Biology of Hyrule: A Link to the Deku Tree

by Lambert Varias

With 15 games and a handful of spin-offs – and undoubtedly more to come – the Zelda universe has acquired its share of fictional plants, animals and floating eyeball things. Lots of them, as shown in this piece by Jude Buffum. He compiled “200 of the most important species” in the series, including chickens.

Behold! The Magna Arbor Vitae Deku. It’s Latin for “Beautifully Drawn Huge Ass Print. Deku.” I kid. It means The Great Deku Tree of Life. As you can see, ol’ Deku Tree’s branches are quite organized. Even though each branch is not explicitly labeled, there are various phyla, which branch out into orders and then genera and then species. El Juderino then gave each organism its own binomial Latin name, a laudable feat in itself.

His Judeness said that he’ll be selling 15 copies of Magna Arbor Vitae Deku at the SUPER iam8bit art show in Los Angeles, but seeing as the show already kicked off yesterday I wouldn’t be surprised if he already sold them all. But don’t worry, Juder will release posters of the print after the show ends. Check out The Jude’s website for magna-sized pictures. I suggest you alternate between the tree itself and the names to discover gems like Vulpes keaton, Testudosaxeus tricollum and good ol’ creature number 167.
