Jarrett Allen is a lover of the blockbuster Nintendo Zelda!

For those unaware, the Cleveland Cavaliers staff plays brief jingle-like music whenever Jarrett scores. And the jingle, from Nintendo’s hit video game saga The Legend of Zelda, playing is no coincidence.

Jarrett is a big fan of Nintendo’s hit Zelda franchise. He grew up playing with the games and still collects all the key memorabilia related to the famous franchise.

As noted in an ESPN article, Jarrett Allen was initially asked by employees of his former Brooklyn Nets team to suggest what should be played each time he scored. Without hesitation, Allen chose Zelda’s “Tokioka” jingle. It is a mystery solving theme that plays in the Nintendo game whenever the protagonist finds a secret object.

The Cleveland Cavaliers star also chose the jingle because it was short and sweet.

His love for Nintendo’s Zelda dates back to when he wasn’t the star he is now. In 2016, he first revealed his taste for the game in a tweet. It called The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild “one of the best in the series” at the E3 event that year.

A year later, in 2017, he again showed his passion for Zelda in a tweet, while answering a question.
