** Mystery Seeds don't prevent that on their own. The posessed body sleeps and Veran's shadow form is briefly manifested, but she counts as being "inside" them for the sake of being hit. You can't damage her without first using the Switch Hook, which likely can't be easily duplicated or replaced.

** The implication seems to be some of the echo portals were opened up by accident, letting things get displaced.


Added DiffLines:

** The Triforce seems to be actively manipulating events, such as sending Link to the Oracles itself. It might simply not have accepted wishes. Also, since it is never used to imediately solve all problems instantly when it's assembled, it is likely that there is an unknown rule to what wishes it can grant and when.

** The Temple is stated to have fallen into Subrosia by the Subrosians themselves, so it definately dropped down. For that matter, you can trigger a volcanic erruption in Subrosia that reaches up to Holodrum later on. However, Subrosia's portals don't exactly obey normal space to begin with; the portals do not line up with each other or follow any kind of linear relationship in terms of position. My guess would be that the temple literally fell into the ground due to Onox's magic, whereas the pirates crashed through an entirely unrelated portal and ended up with their ship bridging accross it. The temple is the one thing that doesn't follow the rules of the portals (step into a swirly hole in either world and pop up in the other), and was moved under different circumstances to begin with

[[folder: Impa]]
* What exactly is up in terms of Impa's design and character? In every game that came before and since these two, she's either a wise old woman who imparts her knowledge to Link or Princess Zelda's younger, more proactive protector. Yet in both of the ''Oracle'' titles, she appears as a middle-aged woman with a very...unconventional body type, who doesn't seem to actually do anything beyond introducing Link to the quest he has to go on and then leaving it to him to fulfill it. Was there really such a need to include her when that's all she ended up doing?

** Keeping an heir hidden wouldn't work, since then, there'd be no issue of Ralph disappearing if he tried to kill Ambi.

** Leaving her in the past at least ensures that the heroes know where she is and that she won't be able to go anywhere else without Nayru in the same time period. Bringing her back to the present runs the risk of her possessing Nayru again and using her power to travel through a different point in Labrynna's history, where Link and Ralph won't know where she is.

** Ralph stays in the past until the sixth dungeon is completed (Nayru brings him to the Present along with herself and Link after Veran possesses Ambi). After that point, he can presumably travel between the ages freely as Nayru is with him.

**Veran created an endless day, making the workers work non-stop. They day itself never ended but people still felt the flow of time (hence why the post man knew he had to make deliveries). People were upset at their loved ones being away so long (and in some cases being dragged away) to work on the tower. It changed from the symbol of a heartbroken queen's hope for her lover into a tyrant's symbol of oppression and forced labor.

** Likely the same way Maple did.

[[folder:Ralph is a Scrappy?]]
* Ralph, from Oracle of Ages, is listed on the Video Games page as TheScrappy in legend of Zelda. This is a case of YMMV, but how is Ralph annoying? He only shows up a couple of times in the game, and when he does, he only says a few lines before running off.
** It's probably because of what makes him similar to Mido or Groose. The problem (I'm assuming, based on what I know) is that they both overcome their hero complexes and rivalries with Link fairly early on in the game, with Mido just hanging out in Kokiri Forest after that and Groose actively helping Link out where he can. Whereas Ralph (I think) takes a bit longer to accept Link's role as the hero, and even when he does, he still rushes blindly off into danger afterward that would be best left for Link to handle.

[[folder: Veran's plan]]
* Forgive me if I've missed something - I've only just started the game - but Veran's plan in ''Oracle of Ages'' seems a bit confusing to me. She possesses Nayru and travels back through time, where she manages to hijack a heartbroken queen, convincing her to use an endless day to...build a tower, which somehow will cause enough sorrow and despair to bring Veran's goal to fruition? Not only does that not make much sense (to me), but why does Veran bother with something so specific in the first place?

[[folder: When you wish upon a triangle...]]
* So Impa was sent by Zelda to collect the two Oracles and bring them to Hyrule, where they'd be safe from danger. But the Triforce is inside Hyrule Castle as of both games' beginnings - why not just use it to ''wish'' them there and save Impa and Link all the trouble?
