    Your favourite Zelda timeline

    Thanks. In another time and place I did a number of threads and articles concerning this matter because it just never made sense for the FS=MS. Seemed to defeat the purpose of 'four swords' concept even from a game-play standard. In this thread I am going to try and be as stoic as possible...

    Evolution in Hyrule

    lol Yeah they are rare. But now I think we have an equal ratio between good and evil from which we've seen in the series thus far. When I get time I'll probably look more into it myself. Well, maybe their should be a difference between the natural 'terrain enemies' and baddies that are in...

    Evolution in Hyrule

    That's most likely the more plausible reason, good point. And yes, I do remember Valoo giving the Rito cases of Red Bull. I wonder if Valoo's role in their evolution has anything to do with the powers of the three guardian dragons in SS - Faron's powers being inherited towards evolving the Zora...

    Evolution in Hyrule

    Can you list the evidence for the Zora -> Rito evolution? I always wondered why the Zora even had to evolve, when they should have been the ones to benefit from the Great Food. Jabune certainly did. On the idea of 'magic' facilitating evolution, I think its plausible in most cases concerning...

    The Theory of Time: Why People Are Right to Question the Timeline

    You care to some extent to disregard HH so brashly. Zelda Theorizing bothers you for the mere fact that the release of the Zelda Timeline was fanservice to a sector of the fan-base. Why? Well... I won't argue this from a literal-legends standpoint. But the fact remains that there was just...

    Future Zelda games took inspiration from the cartoon?

    Yeah, I always liked the hat idea for carrying items. I almost thought Nintendo was going to humor it when TMC was an upcoming game, but eh... Although, technically Link shrinking physically also included items being carried... Outside of the original LoZ, I don't think the 'underworld' is...

    Skyward Sword - Impa and time travel

    Nah, I was meaning in terms of the zeldaverse. Although I think Nintendo was trying harder not to contradict themselves with time travel in SS, but that's just IMO.

    Why Aren't Temples Places For Worship?

    This isn't entirely true. According to SS, the region of the Gerudo Dessert was the location of the original Temple of Time and thus under direct jurisdiction of the Goddess Hylia herself. The Colossus is most likely the last structural evidence of her presence by the time of OoT and TP era. We...

    The Existence of a Fourth Goddess

    This is a very old argument. A lot of people here have given it good thought, here is my two cents. I think the whole fourth goddess and tetra-force concept was recognized by Nintendo through introducing Hylia in SS. I would even go so far as to say the Desert Colossus and Arbiter's Grounds...

    Spoiler The Many Timelines of Majora's Mask

    The merging timeline business is inconsistent with how time travel works within the zeldaverse, I kinda agree with what Shironagi said. There is an inconsistency with MM equipment being retained, or not, once Link travels back in time. He loses some items, but not others. I always deducted that...

    Future Zelda games took inspiration from the cartoon?

    I know a lot of people are going to hate me because of this comment, but I hope Nintendo recognizes the old cartoons and CD-I titles (if only by parody alone). I'm not necessarily saying they ought to remake the games... but HH should have noted them nonetheless. Zelda played a big part of my...

    Mikau's Death

    In the past I've gone through the entire MM text dumps trying to find helpful clues that go beyond the Garo transgressions against the Ikana Kingdom, but came to no avail. The skull kids involvement with Termina's past may be skewed however. If you recall Anju's grandmother telling the story of...

    Mikau's Death

    This is true based on what Evan says to Link's guise as Mikau. Evan: Mikau! How was it? Did you get the eggs back? Oh... you couldn't do it, after all. Have you been to see Lulu out in back by the ocean? Ever since the pirates stole her eggs, she's just been standing out there gazing at the...

    Cult of Demise (Illuminati confirmed!)

    I use to play with the idea of a cult which rooted far back before OoT's debut of Ganondorf history - even before SS confirmed Demises role behind his continual resurrection. Aghanim: Ahah... Link! I have been waiting for you! Heh heh heh... I was hoping I could make Zelda vanish in front of...

    Skyward Sword - Impa and time travel

    Well, I've yet to see an example of a 'Fixed Timeline' in the series. If it were true, then the Split Timeline would virtually be impossible according to HH's logic. Parts of OoA and SS time travel kinda represent the Dynamic time travel theorem. I suspect this exception to the Multiverse rules...

    Your favourite Zelda timeline

    As a side note, I guess I wouldn't have had a problem if FSA went on the AT, as it could have made sense, but back on point: Well, I'll open my ear to anything as its been a long time. When considering ALttP's BS, how did you account for the state of the Triforce during FSA's BS, and the...

    Your favourite Zelda timeline

    Primarily the 'Force' argument. Nintendo did a bad job relating the FSS into the rest of the continuum once Aonuma confirmed FS was supposedly the 'oldest tale'. And then people had a hard time figuring out if this was a mistake or not because the FSA BS implied FS was a direct prequel. And IF...

    I'm not sure how to answer the topic of this thread but I'll start with top three timeline theories that annoyed me the most 1st - Theories which put ALttP on the CT 2nd - Theories which put any part of the FSS on the AT 3rd - Theories that argued OoT wasn't the Seal War anymore because of...

    The Punk Guy from OoT - what was his medicine for?

    @Beauts That's a hell of a synopsis you put together there, I believe you may be on to something. Given what we know about him, he certainly is a depressed person. People that have darkened minds tend to make bad choices, this particular scene in OoT has always been a weird yet vivid memory. I...

    Ears and Link's hometown in TP

    I always liked this topic, but it almost seems somewhat nostalgic ever since Nintendo started making the whole 'ear type' be noted by paying attention to the NPCs in-game. OoT has only ever paid homage to the long ear tradition which had only been elaborated on in the ALttP magna, since then...

    Kakariko Village, The Bottom of the Well and The Crazy Villagers

    Interesting thread, I'll interject this. When OoT first came out, their were three versions of it - 1.0 (commonly known as the gold cartridge), 1.1, and 1.2 (gray cartridges). You can see differences and anomalies removed from the original here and here. The presence of blood depiction was...

    Origins of the Hero of Hyrule? (NES Link)

    When the series was in its infancy with LoZ/AoL and ALttP/LA, theorists relied on the magna for canonical insight. While the old comics are as canon as the infamous CD-I games, they provide the only theoretical "in-game" dialog that is absent from the original product. If you read into the page...

    Where are all skyloft's dead people?

    I imagine the Demon under Skyloft sicks his evil kitties to devour the dead and/or dieing, making catnip an unnecessary incentive afterwards. Makes sense why they are so cute and lovable during the day, and then outright *****es at night. Damn sassy kitties.

    What is Lorule's Hystoria?

    This is the kind of stuff we need to examine to keep theorizing alive, good thread btw. Let me interject the possibility that Termina might be a satellite nation of Lorule in the same way Holodrum and Labrynnia are with Hyrule. You mentioned some interesting parallels that might make your...

    Beyond Hyrule

    I'll add to this. Technically not canon, but this is from a very old magna. Although its given credibility concerning the relation between LoZ/AoL, not many have disputed the implications geographically. Its sad to say that in the last 25 effing years, Nintendo has only added another sector...

    Do you remember the time before Hyrule Historia?

    What Nintendo needs to do is use the timeline to its advantage to make the series more innovative from a storyline standpoint. We need to explore new lands not necessarily exclusive to Hyrule's history. I think with the remake of Majora's Mask, someone is taking note that gems of games like...

    The "Way" Between Hyrule and Termina

    There are a few 'dark tribes' throughout the records of Hyrulian history: AlttP: 'the tribe of evil' - referenced by Agnahim OoT/TWW: Ganondorf's 'demon tribe' - Japanese Translation reference MM: Majoran Tribe - (May not be exclusive to the Hyrule Universe though) TP: The Interlopers/Twili...

    Are Rereleases More Canon Than Original Releases?

    I would have to say newer releases are more canon. Considering GBA ALttP switched 'wisemen' to 'sages' to stay consistent with the modern concept of newer games.

    Capcom has ever right to tie their games together as much as Nintendo. Though the oracles play a small side quest role in TMC, their existence is prevalent due to their roles in the OoX series. My only question is, "Why would their descendants be in Hyrule?" Considering the Royal Family's...

    I don't mean to be rude... but... are you serious?

    Based on what some people are saying, I think for fan's sanity's sake if we are to speculate storyline correlations, keep the magna world separate from the in-game script world. Otherwise interrelating the two for certain elements, and not others, really isn't sound theorizing or ethical in my...
