** 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.

** 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.

*** Not all Zeldas, Links and Ganon(dorf)s are exactly the same even in appearance, are they? Plus the whole subplot of reincarnation of the trio through Skyward Sword (disregarding the ExactWords points below) leaves the door open for a female Link.

*** If Zelda is always a female and Ganon(dorf) is always a male, then a female Link doesn't really make sense.

** OOT Link is known as the Hero of Time, so the fact that time travel was involved in the events is presumably well-known. Therefore, it's likely that Young Link is considered to be the hero's "real" age, since he presumably didn't grow up mentally between time periods. It could even be that the fact that he was returned to his childhood was passed on, even though the effects of that weren't felt in that timeline.

** It could be that they just wanted to make a spinoff game that didn't have any real significance to the timeline. The best way to do that would be setting it outside of Hyrule and not involving any important elements of the mythos in it, which is what they did. Including the Four Sword would have required bringing in Vaati, and might have ended up resulting in some sort of plot hole with regard to the other games he was in.

** I think the problem might be you (and yes, I am well aware of the hypocrisy in such a confrontational statement); when something is responded to with "no this is wrong and has no basis in fact" on a page that more or less exists to handwave technicalities via fanwank, people get defensive; when the "no you are wrong" continues, it escalates with further aggressive defending. If you want people to have a chance of agreeing, or at least not responding to "no way" with increasingly aggressive "yes way", be diplomatic, be polite, make a token not-actually-significant concession or two. I do have theories about Twilight Princess and Wind Waker (namely, that wasn't a ghost, it was memories from a past life awakened by the familiar songs, Hero of Time having set up stones to play those songs [[CrazyPrepared for just such an eventuality]], with the meeting being along the lines of [[AvatarTheLastAirbender Aang talking to Avatar Roku]], and Wind Waker being that Daphnes, being the person least actually versed in the mystical, was simply wrong - or perhaps Link's soul departed that timeline due to the way it split off, and the soul remains in the Failure and Child timelines). Again, the whole point of Headscratchers is seeking answers for things that we still had questions on when canon is all said and done - there ARE ultimately no answers, which is why most responses are of the format "yes, or, alternatively, your question could be because blah blah blah" rather than "no, you are wrong, your question is obviously because yadda yadda yadda, even though neither of us has anything but circumstantial evidence, theorizing, and extrapolation to go by since canon is more concerned with telling a story and selling well than filling in every niggling background detail and some foreground cavities".
