[[folder: What are Monsters]]
* What exactly are monsters? Some games seem to indicate Monsters are simply hostile fauna or creatures that are native to areas, while others seem to suggest monsters are magical demons. Sometimes even a single game don't seem to have consistency on what monsters are. An example being ''Skyward Sword'' saying Demise is the source of all monsters, while the description of the Octorok saying this monster evolved from Ocean mollusks.

* The fact that Link changed out of his Pyjamas and into his hero's clothes right before his grandma's eyes, with the house's windows wide open. Does this boy know no shame? Also, in ''Twilight Princess'', where did his Ordon-clothes go when he got them? LostForever?

** Backing this up, also recall the end of Link to the Past: the Master Sword sleeps once more, forever. '''Forever'''. Having not made any appearances otherwise in the NES titles, and there not being any further titles down the Defeat Timeline that take place after Link to the Past and feature the Master Sword, the likelihood of the Magic Sword, which looks nothing like the Master Sword, actually ''being'' the Master Sword and contradicting Link to the Past's ending seems less probable than the two weapons just being two completely different swords.

** Is that right? I guess I haven't seen all there is in Gerudo Town, or else I just didn't notice them. And now that I think about it, I guess the town's leader, Urbosa's daughter, is technically still a child, too.

**There are Gerudo children in Breath of the Wild's Gerudo Town, such as one who hangs out near the arrow shop advertising. No idea why they're mysteriously absent in OoT/MM, though.

[[folder: Gerudo children]]
* How come we never see any Gerudo children in the games where the tribe make an appearance? Understandably, a race composed almost entirely of women would probably have a significantly smaller rate of reproduction, especially when the rest of the world has generally seen them as hostile thieves, but even in ''Breath of the Wild'' where they're given their own thriving desert town and a more realistic portrayal of an average lifestyle, I still have yet to see as much as one child running around.

**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.

**This actually makes far greater sense when you factor in the ValuesDissonance between Western and Eastern cultures. The common Western definition of a hero is a macho-man, who charges head-first into battle against all foes and overpowers them "honorably." Contrast the Japanese folk hero, Yamato the Brave, a prince who went around facing enemies who could have [[CurbStompBattle curb stomped]] him in a fair fight, and winning by using tactics such as dressing as a festival maiden and catching his enemy off-guard at close range, or replacing a foe's sheathed weapon with a carved wood copy before a duel. Actions that Western cultures would consider cowardly. And yet it was Yamato's ''enemies'' who granted him his title! In Japanese culture, ''true'' courage isn't about being a fearless macho warrior. ''True'' courage means not letting fear hold you back, even against physically superior foes. I could even go so far as to say it is ''because'' your enemies could [[CurbStompBattle curb stomp]] you with ease if given the chance, that weaker heros have to fight ''smarter,'' not ''harder.'' And some of the blessings Farore gives help you do exactly that if you can use them right.

** 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.

** My guess is that if one of the characters themselves dies, the spirit of the oracle leaves them and is reborn inside a new host, thereby preventing chaos from erupting under such circumstances. As for Nayru's influence over Labrynna, she ''did'' have the power to the halt the passage of time in ''Ages'', creating an endless day, so if she were locked within a similar crystal as Din was, it might similarly cause time to cease, or maybe just go out of control like Din's seasons did. Whether this would be as simple as the passage between day and night or if different eras might actually start to fuse together (a la ''Hyrule Warriors'') is currently unknown.
