The loud moans of Great Fairies in Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom led a TikToker’s neighbour to file a noise complaint.
The internet is buzzing with an endless stream of Tears Of The Kingdom jokes, covering everything from players taking Purah on a romantic airplane trip to comical (yet horrific) war machines.
The suspicious sounds certain non-playable characters make when interacting with Link have also become a massive meme sensation, especially when it comes to the peculiar Great Fairies.
The Great Fairies make such odd noises that a popular TikToker’s neighbours mistook innocent sounds from the game for something far more scandalous, leading to some hilarious confusion.
The TikToker in question, Jiayang (aka Plumsoju), revealed he received a lengthy email from his landlord, letting him know that ‘adult content’ sounds coming from his flat have disturbed his neighbours.
At first, Jiyang admitted he was quite puzzled by the email, as he said he’s ‘not doing any of that,’ or at least not with the speakers cranked up.
‘Then it clicked. Because I’ve been playing Tears Of The Kingdom every day since it came out, and I’ve been trying to upgrade all my armour,’ the TikToker said as he connected the dots.
In Tears Of The Kingdom, to level up your armour you need to visit one of the four Great Fairy fountains scattered across Hyrule.
Every time you visit them, they burst out of their bulbs exclaiming a rather suggestive ‘Ah-haaaa!’, which is what caused the misunderstanding.
The suspicious sounds become even more pronounced when Link rapidly upgrades multiple pieces of armour in one visit.
So, it’s not that surprising that the TikToker’s neighbours interpreted it as adult content – even though it really isn’t.
Jiayang will most likely be rocking headphones when interacting with the Great Fairies from now on… if he wants to steer clear of any future noise complaints.
