Answers to Questions (FAQ)

What is the Hylian language from Twilight Princess? (Definition)

Hylian is a fictional language created for the Zelda game universe (in the world of Hyrule). The hylian has several variants depending on the game, the Twilight version is mainly the one used in the game The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

How to write in Hylian, as in Zelda Twilight Princess?

Hylian writing is similar to a classical writing in English but with each letter replaced by an Hylian symbol.

Example:

LetterHylian SymbolLetterHylian SymbolLetterHylian Symbol
Achar(65)Bchar(66)Cchar(67)
Dchar(68)Echar(69)Fchar(70)
Gchar(71)Hchar(72)Ichar(73)
Jchar(74)Kchar(75)Lchar(76)
Mchar(77)Nchar(78)Ochar(79)
Pchar(80)Qchar(81)Rchar(82)
Schar(83)Tchar(84)Uchar(85)
Vchar(86)Wchar(87)Xchar(88)
Ychar(89)Zchar(90)
dCode.fr

The letters X and Z are sometimes switched, the sources diverge.

In the Wii version of the game, many things are reversed (mirrored), and the glyphs/symbols are:

LetterHylian SymbolLetterHylian SymbolLetterHylian Symbol
achar(97)bchar(98)cchar(99)
dchar(100)echar(101)fchar(102)
gchar(103)hchar(104)ichar(105)
jchar(106)kchar(107)lchar(108)
mchar(109)nchar(110)ochar(111)
pchar(112)qchar(113)rchar(114)
schar(115)tchar(116)uchar(117)
vchar(118)wchar(119)xchar(120)
ychar(121)zchar(122)
dCode.fr

There is no difference between upper and lower case and there is no question of punctuation and to write numbers, it is better to write the numbers in letters beforehand.

Example: HYLIAN becomes char(72)char(89)char(76)char(73)char(65)char(78)

How to decrypt Hylian from Zelda Twilight Princess?

Each Hylian symbol has an equivalent letter in the latin alphabet, decoding a word is to translate each symbol by its corresponding letter.

Example: char(90)char(69)char(76)char(68)char(65) translates ZELDA

How to recognize an Hylian Twilight Princess ciphertext?

The message is composed of rounded symbols, sometimes accompanied by a dot or a triangle.

Any reference to Link character, to the Twilight Princess game or Zelda universe is a clue.

In the game, the hylian symbols appear mainly on the signs and maps.

With each new Zelda game, the Hylian language has undergone variations.

What are the variants of the Hylian Twilight Princess cipher?

On the Nintendo Wii console, the symbols appear in mirror writing compared to the Nintendo GameCube version.

This version of the Hylian language appears in Twilight Princess but also a little bit in Skyward Sword (although the majority of the symbols in this other game use a dedicated Hylian Skyward Sword alphabet).
