Zelda Wiki, previously known as Zelda Wiki.org and Zelda Universe Wiki, is a wiki-based encyclopedia hosted on the wiki-farm Fandom (originally called Wikia). Zelda Wiki aims to collect any and all information related to Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda franchise.

Zelda Wiki co-founded the Nintendo Independent Wiki Alliance with Bulbapedia and Super Mario Wiki, a network that comprises fan-run wikis from several Nintendo franchises. Zelda Wiki's status in the Nintendo Independent Wiki Alliance is currently in dispute due to its acquisition by Fandom.

History

Zelda Wiki was originally founded as Zelda Universe Wiki by Jason Rappaport for the website Zelda Universe. It quickly grew to contain information related to The Legend of Zelda, before the website crashed following a server move. After it was moved to a new server, the wiki adopted the name "Zelda Wiki.org" and became a collaborative project between several different Zelda sites. After many major Zelda sites choose to leave and the only masterminds were small Zelda sties, it was reorganized under an independent structure.

Its founder, Jason Rappaport, was also the one that approached Archaic and Porplemontage over forming an alliance together. Together the group founded the Nintendo Independent Wiki Alliance, overseeing the growth of the alliance as various wikis joined the group during the Fandom migration.

On March 8, 2017, Zelda Wiki became part of Gamepedia, a wiki-farm hosting gaming wikis. Gamepedia was acquired by Fandom in 2018, bring various Gamepedia wikis under the same roof as other Fandom wikis, including Zeldapedia. On June 15, 2019, Zeldapedia agreed to merge their userbase into Zelda Wiki. By 2021, the wiki has received a new skin known as FandomDesktop, and a new domain name.
