** It's been suggested that the Triforce only stays together if one with a balanced heart makes a wish upon it. The scenario goes: Balanced heart touches the Triforce > That person gets to keep it and make as many wishes as they'd like. (Link gets the Triforce at the end of this game and gives it to the royal family.) Meanwhile, an imbalanced heart splits the Triforce > Imbalanced heart is forced to find all three pieces > Imbalanced heart gets ''one'' wish from the Triforce after reassembling it > Triforce returns to its original, unsplit form and location, and awaits a new host. (In Ganon's case, he collected all three pieces after defeating the Hero of Time, wished for omnipotence, and caused the Triforce to reset and return to the Sacred Realm, now the Dark World, and seal itself inside the Pyramid where no one could get to it.)

*** AWizardDidIt. But real answer, Hylians are a magical race seperate from humans in-game so maybe there's more compatibility than meets the eye. As for zoras, they would have to pass on their genes to a hylian through males and a few generations would certainly allow that setup to happen eventually.

** Which raises further questions. The zora are egg laying fish people and the gorons subsist on stone. How exactly are they and hylians compatible? It is also inconsistent, given the very idea of inter species romance has been consistently mocked in the series.

** The sword's attack is swing in A Link To The Past and the beam is a spiral. Majora's Mask also has sword beams for the fierce deity and it is a three dimensional polygon game. The reason for the inconsistency is that Zelda games never had explicit continuity beyond those that directly continued from each other(''The Legend Of Zelda''--''Zelda 2 The Adventure Of Link'', Ocarina of Time -- Majora's Mask) The Wind Waker was released and it was stated they were ''all'' a part of a carefully thought out chronological narrative.

** ...Not quite, my friend. The Downfall Timeline came about as a result of a hypothetical Game Over suffered by Link '''during the final battle against Ganon''' in ''Ocarina of Time'', thus allowing him to obtain both Link's and Zelda's Triforce pieces, and forcing the seven sages to have to seal him inside the Sacred Realm. As has been suggested on a different page, it's possible that, if the Triforce is split and reassembled by one with an imbalanced heart, they only get a chance at ''one wish'' before it resets itself back to its resting place in the Sacred Realm, which would've been inside the sealed chamber in the Pyramid in ''A Link to the Past'', where Ganon couldn't get to it.

*** Didn't LttP come after OoT, gameworld-timeline wise? If so, then the back story of LttP is describing what the people remember of OoT. Ganon got sealed into the Golden Realm just before he acquired the Triforce. Wouldn't the seal keep the Triforce from splitting in the first place? Unless there were people in the realm to send Courage and Wisdom to, Ganon would have had all three. By the time Link beats him, he has a balanced heart and can use the Triforce without worry.
*** No, the seal wouldn't have prevented the Triforce from splitting. Ganon got his hands on the Triforce ''before'' he was sealed in the Golden Land. The entire purpose of the Imprisoning War in ''A Link to the Past's'' backstory was because they couldn't stop him otherwise. The Imprisoning War in this case was an entirely different event than what is depicted in ''Ocarina of Time'', because in the Downfall timeline Link ''failed'' to awaken the Sages, leading to a bloody war between the Hylian Knights and Ganon's army.
