The main series of the franchise is the titular The Legend of Zelda series. The franchise also consists of the Tingle series and Hyrule Warriors series.
Unlike the Mario franchise, which consists of numerous spin-off titles and series, The Legend of Zelda franchise largely consists of its main series.
