Interesting theory about before SS

Discussion in 'Zelda Theory' started by Bailoo, Jan 17, 2018.

?

Would a Zelda game set before SS be cool?

  1. Yeah! It would be interesting to see the landscape and new baddies!

  2. Nah! That would be dumb! We already know enough so leave it at that!

  3. Don't really care...

    Just curious:
    In Skyward sword, a Tingle doll is in Zelda’s room in Skyloft’s Knight Academy, yet we neither see or hear of Tingle at all. Now don't get all crazy and stuff, It's just a random thought, but could this mean that Skyword Sword shouldn't be the first game on the timeline? I mean, where could Zelda ever find a doll like this? If anyone here has read the manga at the back of Hyrule Historia by Akira Himekawa (which I really love), you could piece together that there is a civilization before the whole mess started with the demons and the gods and junk. Could there have been an original tingle? Maybe the next Zelda game will be set before that big war? Who knows....

    Always a possibility, but that was most likely just an easter egg, and the Manga should not be considered canon

    I think it's quite possible. We already know that there are multiple Tingles throughout the series, probably reincarnating similarly to Link and Zelda. And even if there was no Tingle doll, you can't possibly say nothing in history happened that was interesting before SS. Just nothing we know about.

    The reason I thought it was canon is because on the first page of the manga it says:
    "This comic is based on the video game The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. It includes key elements of the game's story"

    Is based off of the story. Just like Rogue One and all of the Star Wars books are based off of Star Wars (I don't think they are canon)

    Rogue One is definitely Canon, some of the books are, but not all.

    Normally I'd agree that the Manga aren't canon, but this one appears in Hyrule Historia, which is canon, so there's a possibility that the Manga is as well.

    I’ve always considered (in my own personal timeline) that the manga was canon so I definitely think that you are onto something here!
