Sheik (シーク, Shīku) is the ninja-like alter ego of Zelda in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, aiding Link as he adventures through Hyrule to awaken the seven sages. She is playable character in Super Smash Flash and Super Smash Flash 2.
In Ocarina of Time, after Link pulls the Master Sword from its pedestal, he goes 7 years forward into the future which opens up the Sacred Realm, allowing Ganondorf to take the triforce. Due to Ganondorf's imbalance of wisdom, courage and power, the triforce splits into three parts, leavin Ganon with only the triforce of power. In an attempt to hide her identity, Princess Zelda changes into Sheik to prevent Ganondorf from finding her. 7 years later, Link meets Sheik, a mysterious character who claims to be the last member of the Sheikah; a clan of warriors sworn to protect the Royal Family of Hyrule. Sheik urges Link to find the six sages from the six temples scattered across Hyrule in order to put a stop to Ganondorf. After Link rescues all six sages, he goes back to the Temple of Time where Sheik soon reveals herself to be Princess Zelda.
