Grooselda is the het ship between Groose and Zelda from The Legend of Zelda fandom.


Groose and Zelda are both students at the Knight Academy in Skyloft. Groose has been known to have a crush on Zelda for a long time and is very jealous of Link due to his close friendship with her. He eventually captures Link's loftwing in hopes that he can win the ceremony and have a moment with Zelda on top of the statue. However, Zelda just gets mad at him and this fails because she manages to delay the ceremony long enough for Link to find his loftwing. Groose ends up losing to Link but Zelda is captured and taken to the surface.

After Zelda's disappearance, Groose spends a lot of time sulking in his room and blames Link for these events. He eventually follows him to the surface in hopes that he can find Zelda. Groose asks the old woman about Zelda and is bothered when she tells him that he is not the one who will save her, even though he still has an important role to play. However, he later comes around and aids Link so that he can take care of the evil and help him save Zelda. Groose catches her to save her from a fatal fall and takes her back to the temple. After Demise is sealed, Groose gives Zelda and Link a goodbye before heading back to Skyloft.


Grooselda has a small amount of popularity in the Zelda fandom. It is not as popular as Zelink or many other ships due to the fact that Groose bullied Link and tried to rig the ceremony so that he could win. However, many were pleased with Groose's character development that the fact that he selflessly aided Link in order to help save her. Grooselda is commonly shipped with other Link pairings such as Peatrink in order to give Zelda a love interest.
