    The Lost Woods, a crossroads to different dimensions?

    The forest you travel through in the original LoZ is actually the same Lost Woods spoken of within OoT, Majora's Mask, ALttp, TMC, and more. Although it's referred to as simply the "forest maze" by the NoA translation, the Japanese name for it is the exact same one that the others use. Just...

    Skyloft's Cloud Barrier

    Like I was saying, if it can survive an impact with earth going at terminal velocity (as well as possibly being superheated while passing through the sky) and come out unscathed, I hardly think it hitting rocks on the way down would hurt anything

    Skyloft's Cloud Barrier

    Zelda also had nothing that could have broke her fall if she really had fallen all the way through that cloud barrier. My instinct tells me that since Ghirahim needed Zelda alive, he wouldn't have just snatched her away and let her fall to her death. Also as far as items go, falling from any...

    Skyloft's Cloud Barrier

    Hearing the Japanese version would be nice but... I think that it's probably gonna be a while until we can get to hear anything.

    Skyloft's Cloud Barrier

    Yeah, but I always considered the dangers of the thunderhead to be like, y'know... Inclement weather, lightning, hail, violent winds... I would kind say the same thing for the actual cloud barrier, if it weren't for the fact that you never really see it rain on the Surface. I would think that if...

    Skyloft's Cloud Barrier

    As I'm sure everyone knows who's played Skyward Sword, one of the things that made it's sky world unique is it's cloud barrier. This cloud barrier prevents the denizens of the sky from being able to venture towards the surface, and protects said denizens from attacks from the surface. Now one...

    The Truth of the Shadow Temple

    If the sum total amount of bodies in there includes people that would have died during the war described by Lanayru, then I'm sure that there would be plenty of bodies, especially considering that the crypt is inscribed with whole quote of Hyrule "having a bloody past".

    The Truth of the Shadow Temple

    We don't really know how long the civil war went on for. If the civil war was started for the reasons shown by Lanayru, it could very well have been going on for years in some form or another, even via tensions related to the Triforce being missing in TMC. "But Lord, Minish Cap is shown to have...

    The Truth of the Shadow Temple

    The Twili may very well have origins within the Sheikah, that I don't doubt. They both can use powerful magic, but if you wanted to go off that I like both versions of the translation tbh, but the Japanese has always seemed like it be the most qualified candidate to for the better translation...

    Flying after Skyward Sword

    If flying came back, I'd really love to see the ways they could be used as an extension of you. You could upgrade it with bombs and teach it to drop them on hordes of enemies from above, have your loftwing hurl them in front of you to clear cliff side openings or release lava flows, shoot arrows...

    Flying after Skyward Sword

    I think honestly that flying could definitely be implemented better in future installments. What make Zelda, "Zelda", to me is having this real feeling of wonder and excitement, this feeling of building yourself up and getting to adventure through it better and better. I don't think that all...

    The Truth of the Shadow Temple

    One of the great things about the Legend of Zelda is the fact that you can take just one game and build so many stories off what it has to offer. Like you said, your theory definitely has some holes in it, but I think I get the general gist of it. Maybe if you refined it you could have...

    The Truth of the Shadow Temple

    I guess that's true. He's not really ethereal, just a spirit. One could argue that the Twilight Realm itself was the Twili's outside cause of evolution, but I do commend you for bringing that up!

    The Truth of the Shadow Temple

    Twilight Princess and the Wind Waker were both quoted by a delevoper as having been set 200 years apart from OoT. If a later source quoted something different, than that just goes to prove what I said about timeline quotes not being steadfast. Bongo Bongo is an ethereal spirit. He didn't need...

    The Truth of the Shadow Temple

    Bongo Bongo was sealed in Kakariko's well, not the Shadow Temple. He wasn't sealed there and until Impa went there and tried to seal him herself. Also, we really don't know how many years passed between Skyward Sword and Twilight Princess. While quotes on how far apart the games are are nice, I...

    The Truth of the Shadow Temple

    As I'm sure everyone here has played OoT, I'm sure you will also remember the Shadow Temple. The Shadow Temple in OoT is the respective temple of the Sheikah, and Impa's chief designated temple. Entry is only afforded to the Sheikah, and those they deem worthy of entering: in OoT's case, this...

    Zant and Midna are related by blood

    I believe going back, it said that Zant believed that he should have been picked as the rightful king because he had lead some kind of revolution against the former monarch that freed a large majority of his people. But when it came time to pick the next ruler, they glossed over him and decided...

    Theory on Kafei

    I think some people may be taking the whole counterpart thing too seriously. Kafei to me definitely embodies a lot of the virtues that Link does, and has a lot of characteristics that seem to be based on him. There doesn't neccesarily have to be a Terminian counterpart for every character...

    Lanayru's Vision and the creation of the Sacred Realm

    The Sacred Realm is never quoted as having always had the Triforce within it. Hylia's whole purpose in existing was to watch over the Holy Land and the Triforce. With her watching, there really was no reason to keep it sealed away. The arrival of Demise is what changed all that, and Hylia...

    The Mirror of twilight, Its origin , loss, and recovery

    I agree with Shironagi on the whole Arbiter's Grounds being used as an executionary place. The fact that the Gerudo are missing, the fact that most of the Twili don't actually seem to mind the Twilight, and the fact that they all have red hair (along with the fact that Midna resembles some kind...

    Lanayru's Vision and the creation of the Sacred Realm

    The term "Dark Interlopers" is something I think NoA just came up with to kinda further paint the Twili as this (while somewhat human) very uncanny group of alien aggressors. Kind of what I was arguing though is that the Ancient Sorcerers (just a term I'm coining for convenience) were really...

    Graphic Style of Skyward Sword

    Just wondering, how much is the average new game in NZ? I think that's a big thing to consider. I also wouldn't consider it childish, it's more of a fantasy style world. Like DarkLink7 said, it's got a Starry Night look to it (as far as textures go). The art-style is actually based on...

    Your Favourite Boss Fights?

    That second fight with Ghirahim was pretty cool. He presented a real challenge and the motion controls added a whole new depth to combat. He also didn't seem horribly slow, either. If they had made the bosses faster in Hero Mode, I'd be more than happy to play it through again.
