** Or we can chalk this whole thing up to FanDumb - "It's canon!" "It's not F'in canon." "Yes it is!" "No it's not!". I see it more as an PragmaticAdaptation myself, (not everything like the game, but decent in itís own right) but why don't we fight each other over it - that would be much more mature. [[SarcasmMode After all we can't have people with different opinions running around!]]. Honestly the fact that your even argueing about this JustBugsMe! About the ancient evil dragon thing. It's a bit of a cliche don't you think. Trying to make it more tragic may have been the intention. If you wanna split it both ways Ganon changed the dragon in a way to reflect the Goron's myth as a way of threating them instead of actully reviving the dragon just to make it a double punch to both the Goron's and Link. Also somehow I think reading an exact copy of the game would be... well boring. Some proof as to if the manga is supposed to be canon or not would be nice though.

[[folder: Timeline woes]]
* What's with all the complaints about the timeline that was released in ''Hyrule Historia''? There are so many people who say that it "doesn't make sense", even though there's no massive plotholes or paradoxes present that would indicate this to be true once you become even slightly well-versed in the backstory of each game...It seems people act as though the timeline messes things up because it doesn't work the way ''they alone'' think it should work, but that doesn't make it wrong, does it?
** Mainly because the "Fallen Hero" timeline is kind of a cop-out, since there's no separate cutscene or NonStandardGameOver for failing against the final boss, even in the 3DS remake.
** That is not indicative of a cop-out.
** Exactly right. Just because the games don't flat-out say something is the case doesn't mean it automatically ''isn't''. There's just parts of the timeline in between that you're meant to fill in on your own. If Link has the Triforce, and Ganon kills Link, then it's only logical that Ganon's going to get the Triforce. You don't exactly need that spelled out in a cutscene.
*** Except that there's no explanation as to what caused the split into the Fallen Hero timeline. Okay, so it was caused by Link failing and getting defeated... except that such an event never happened in the actual game we played. We know what caused the Child Timeline (Zelda sending Link to the past), and we witnessed its creation, but at no point does Ocarina of Time show the creation or beginning of the Fallen Hero timeline, making it feel more like an out of continuity speculative scenario than an actual part of the storyline. That's why people call it a cop-out.
** I think the main complaint is that the child and adult timelines both came about because of history being changed in the canonical ending to the game, whereas the failure timeline was more of a "what-if" scenario. But it's not necessarily out of the question that at some point in the future of one of the timelines, someone will go back in time and help Link succeed when he originally failed or vice-versa.
** It makes far more sense if you consider the three timelines as corresponding to a part of the Triforce based on their bearers in [=OoT=]. Adult is the Courage timeline, since Link won out with his goal of beating Ganon. Child is the Wisdom timeline, since Zelda accomplished her original goal of getting everyone to realize Ganondorf was bad news and nip his plans in the bud. The Fallen Hero timeline is the Power timeline, as it originates from Ganondorf being victorious over Link and Zelda.

[[folder:Killing sapient zoras]]Zoras]]



** As of Hyrule Encyclopedia, it has been revealed that the River Zoras originally stem from Sea Zoras, however they became savage and mutated as Hyrule declined. Presumably the ones you see in ''ALBW'' are just barely beginning to return from their initial hostility, while the Sea Zoras are still around in the Oracle games due to not being in Hyrule at the time things went down.

*** Unlikely as it may be, that's irrelevant to the discussion. The headscratcher is "can a female Link exist?" to which the answer is "as far as the franchise presents thus far, yes, it may be possible. It just isn't canon yet." As soon as reincarnation was brought into Zelda's franchise, it's since been possible for Link to be potentially female in a future incarnation until further evidence points towards this being impossible.

As soon as reincarnation was brought into Zelda's franchise, it's since been possible for Link to be potentially female in a future incarnation until further evidence points towards this being impossible. And seeing as the staff for Zelda are also weighing up the potential of a female Link, it's far from impossible yet.
