**It's a separate plane of existence that's intangible and invisible unless you know what to look for. Compare the Silent Realms from Skyward Sword: Until you know exactly where to look and how to find them, you can walk right by their entrances a thousand times and never realize it.

** [[WordofGod Hyrule Historia]] tells us that Link specifically told Zelda of what happened, and, being Zelda, she believed him and told him to leave Hyrule with the Ocarina of Time. After this, the TP section only says 'Many years later, Ganondorf, the infamous demon king... was finally able to be executed.' So, he probably did some other bad stuff in the future of that timeline. All Link did was prevent him from getting into the Sacred Realm to begin with.

** Also, in addition, this is taken straight from the Zelda wiki:
"According to Hyrule Historia, the Nintendo Power strategy guide, and the official Legend of Zelda series website, Navi is the one that Link is searching for at the beginning of Majora's Mask, the direct sequel to Ocarina of Time. However, this is never directly stated in-game."

** Maybe the Stalchildren turned into Stalfos after seven years, and the peehats just died off?

** I don't recall anyone treating him poorly just because they think he's a Kokiri.

to:

** I don't recall anyone treating him poorly Sheik doesn't just because they think he's evade Ganondorf. Link has to confront threats, both natural and otherwise, to get wherever he goes. Fighting past moblins in the Lost Woods, dealing with flying boulders climbing Death Mountain. Considering all the places you run into Sheik, it stands to reason that Sheik had to confront those problems just as Link had to. Whether that means Sheik fought them or simply used stealth, I have no idea, but there's some clear OffScreenMomentOfAwesome stuff going on here.
** The person who calls Link
a Kokiri.
'fairy boy' has a massive crush on him that is immediately apparent. It may sound a bit cringe worthy, but it is definitely not meant with malice.

** I would imagine it's because it's a Temple. Like an actual Temple, with religious statues and overtones and such. Aside from MAYBE the Water Temple, the Spirit Temple is the only one I would consider to be a REAL Temple- and even the Water Temple is iffy. (they say it was a place of worship earlier in the game) Anyway, you go to Temples for Spiritual reasons. Hence, Spirit Temple.

** In the game, she actually makes it pretty clear that she's allergic to Cuccos, but bred the Pocket Cucco to be hypoallergenic. I always assumed that the ones at the end were pocket cuccos like someone above said... though, thinking back on it, I don't really recall the size of them at the end.

** New troper here; I always subscribed to the Peter Pan theory. That is to say, Peter Pan is a boy but he's traditionally played by a girl. So whether he was physically male or not is irrelevant because he was a character Zelda was playing. At least, that was my take on it.

** My question really was why it's called the ''Spirit'' Temple, when it's located in a desert, and all of the other temples' names incorporated elements that corresponded to their locations? Why use something obscure like "spirit", instead of another element?

*** So THAT's why she was so annoying!

*** ** So THAT's why she was so annoying!



*** Its an interesting idea, but doesn't add up given the ending of Ocarina of Time. In Wind Waker the Great Deku Tree states that the Kokiri took on the form of Koroks after the seas rose. In the Ocarina of Time ending the Kokiri are still human at Lon Lon Ranch, and without their fairies as well (so it can't be argued that the fairies are what keeps them in human form either, since they don't have them here).
*** To be fair, the Deku Tree could've been generalizing at that point, and the transformation could've been a gradual process. (Especially if the Kokiri returned to their forest after the party, which might've halted the transformation, only to start it again when they left again later.)

*** Freeing Ruto is just a matter of melting some ice (with magic fire, if it was red ice, but it's not like blue fire is hard to come by), and getting to the dangerous places he goes to when he teaches Link the teleport songs is rather easy when you know the songs already (with the exception of the Ice Cavern, as the song doesn't lead you there, but he could have just sneaked behind Link in this case). We never see any hint that Sheik has any real combat abilities, other than an artwork that depicts him wielding a shortsword. For all we know, Impa only trained Zelda to be stealthy, not a warrior. After all, she knew very well that the Hero of Time would need to do all the fighting, the Princess of Destiny just had to stay alive until then, and give out some knowledge and magic.

*** To expound, what the stone probably didn't know was that Link isn't a Kokiri. Though that particular stone is in an excellent position to learn that from the Deku Tree Sprout in the future, it hasn't heard it yet, and Link can't wear masks in the future.

*** Because it's a ''hatchling''. The other poster implies she [[EatsBabies ate a newborn Cucco]]. Though Zelda might've just taken it as a pet.

*** Considering where ''Ocarina of Time'' fits into the series' chronology, it's possible that the Master Sword changes its appearance in later games is ''because'' it put Link to sleep here. Considering that putting him to sleep is directly responsible for Ganon bonding with the Triforce of Power and corrupting the Sacred Realm, it's entirely possible that either the Sages who empower the Master Sword found a way to enchant the sword so that it would change to fit the wielder instead of forcing the wielder to fit it, or Fi subconsciously did so, to prevent the sword from inadvertently causing problems the ''next'' time it's needed by a kid.
