The only problem that I see here is that if Ganon shows up in FSA and was sealed or something, how is he back in OoT? The Royal Family would know of Ganon right? There's no way the King would trust him either. Unless your going to say that they are different Ganon's because of this back story that Demise makes but still, why would the King still trust someone with the same name? Funny...
Every male gerudo becomes king. Kings sharing the same name is more common than not. FSA ganon, no matter his actions, do not reflect OoT ganondorf at any point in time because they are not the same person.
TMC, FS and FSA show us a Hyrule without any neighbouring countries and different tribes living together, a fact which supports a placement after OoT (since Hyrule got united just prior to OoT).
Civil wars have been spoken of in 3 games, OoT, Alttp and TP. In TP it was specifically stated by Lanayru; the land of Hyrule and all its tribes were content in mind and body for many ages, until word of the Sacred Realm and its wish-granting Triforce spread throughout the world. Eventually, a group of Interlopers attempted to use the dark magic they had mastered, the Fused Shadow, to seize control of the Sacred Realm and take the Triforce for themselves. This caused the various tribes of Hyrule to quarrel and fight.
Now, in actuality this helps pre OoT placement because of SS. Impa and Hylia wanted the Triforce to be forgotten, which is a great explanation as to why the triforce is nowhere to be mentioned in any of the FSS games at all. This fits the FSS to a tee- a retro Hyrule with developing civilisation with a lost Triforce legend. That is, until the interloper backstory comes into play and various tribes struggle for power and the triforce....
Another factor that needs to be considered when placing the FSS is the links between the FSA and AlttP: the geography is fairly similar, the Palace of the Four Sword exists in AlttP, the thieves that move to a forest, etc.. Any way, the FSA Ganondorf can be used to introduce a new Ganondorf to the series, a Ganondorf which conveniently can be the one that appears in AlttP.
I personally do not believe geography takes priority over races when it comes to timeline placement. It has never been stated to my knowledge to effect timeline placement, where as races ARE important to timeline placement stated on record multiple times by Eiji himself. (Zelda Box 2002, Nintendo Power 2008).
The Sacred Realm had been forgotten for a long time prior to Ganondorf finding it in the back story of AlttP. In TP, the absence of the Triforce and the ruined Temple of Time indicates a decline in the Triforce religion. The FSS shows a Hyrule without the Triforce religion. This makes it quite logical to put the whole FSS in-between TP and AlttP.
I stated this above but ill explain again, SS sets up the disappearance of the Triforce from all the races pre OoT, which allows FSS to fit in there just as well. On top of that, the triforce still needs to be placed in the SR pre OoT, a time before all tribes were in harmony and the triforce was out of sight out of mind. Tie this in with the Gorons being nomadic, absence of the Zora, and Gerudo being able to exist in back to back titles, It pretty much supports pre FSS placement flawlessly as far as races go.
The Gerudos are quite unlike each other in FSA and OoT, moreover, AlttP Ganon leads a band of thieves, which is indicative of the Gerudos continued existence.
Alttp Ganon backstory happened many centuries before the actual events of alttp. It in no way proves the Gerudos continued existence. Also, the entire backstory of Alttp wasnt even released with the remake on GBA, making its canon up for serious debate to begin with.
Placing FSS after TP makes the only appearing Zoras the ones in Holodrum and Labrynna.
Not true, alttp has zora as well. It really doesnt make a difference with how you place the FSS as far as reappearing, but, why do that when it fits perfectly pre OoT?
Nomadic Gorons exist in WW too, otherwise is it a good point.
Nomadic Gorons do exist on the AT, but thats after it is flooded. If you are placing FSS on the CT it has nothing to do with the AT.
Now here is how this timeline would flow if we were to place the FSS pre OoT.
-Events of SS
-Triforce is taken to the SR.
-Unconfirmed amount of time after SS, events of TMC take place, with many things in common to SS.
......Relations and connections to the "Sky"
......Absence of Triforce, as it was hidden in the SR to be forgotten.
-Unconfirmed amount of time after TMC, the events of FS take place.
-Events of FSA take place.
......1st incarnation, Ganondorf is sealed in the four sword as Ganon (Pig form)
-Unconfirmed amount of time after FSA. Interloper backstory stated in TP. A war between all the tribes. Creation of the Twilight realm, ect ect.
-Possibly another civil war 7 years before OoT. Or the same war stated above.
......2nd incarnation. Ganondorf(2) backstory.
- Events of WW.
......Ganondorf(2) is killed.
-Events of PH
-Events of ST
-Unconfirmed amount of time after ST, Pig ganon escapes 4 sword seal.
-Unconfirmed amount of time, events of LoZ take place.
......Pig ganon is killed.
-Events of AoL
......Failed revival attempt of Pig ganon.
-Events of MM
-Events of TP sometime after
......Ganondorph(2) is killed.
-Unconfirmed amount of time, FSA pig ganon escapes seal and leads to THE REAL Imprisoning War backstory of Atttp.
-Centuries later events of alttp take place.
......Pig ganon is killed.
-LA, OoX take place (Whichever order)
......Failed revival attempt on Pig ganon.
There you have it, 2 ganondorfs pre OoT. 1 human, 1 pig death on each branch(4 deaths) And 1 failed revival on each branch. All races progress/digress seamlessly, and as stated by Eiji, races do play an important role. Im not saying this is what it is, but there is evidence to support this claim now because of SS. Im not gonna lie, anyone who would have placed the FSS pre OoT before SS came out, I would of brushed off as newbish. But it has to be considered seriously now imo.
