[[folder: Linebeck's origins]]
* What world did Linebeck hail from originally? He have a history with Jolene, and a lot of people on Mercay Island seem to know him, but on the other hand, he also seems surprised when he hears Neri's line about the two worlds, and the ending shows him having travelled into Link's world as well. If he was from Link's world originally, then this begs the question of how he entered upon the waters of the Ocean King, but if he was from the waters of the Ocean King, then I have to ask...Why did the Ocean King send him out of his homeworld to live and settle in one that he knows nothing about? Linebeck never asked to be returned to the world of the Great Sea with Link, and judging by ''Spirit Tracks'', the two of them apparently didn't end up staying in contact with each other after this game.

[[folder: Elemental arrows]]
* Even if I were to accept that Link wasn't carrying any items from his last adventure with him when he tried to save Tetra from the Ghost Ship, or that they fell from his pouch while he was floating unconscious in the sea, what happened to his fire and ice arrows? In ''The Wind Waker'', the Fairy Queen gave Link the aid of two elemental fairies, who were shown flying into his chest, allowing him to add fire and ice powers to his arrows. Come this game, Link finds a new bow, and the game never gives you that option, nor an explanation why.

** There's probably not any real reason, but I like to think that the witnessing the death of the King of Red Lions has traumatized Link, making it so that he can't enter deep water lest he flash back to that moment.

[[folder:Swimming]]
* If this is the same Link from ''The Wind Waker'', why can't he swim in this game, when he could in that game?

** Because the temple goes extremly far below the earth and the cracks would either just let the sun pass at one specific moment of the day or you'd have to destroy half of every floor you pass on the way down.

[[folder: Sunlight]]
* If all it takes to revitalize the Sand of Hours is sunlight, why not just create some cracks in the walls to allow sunlight to reach inside the temple, like they've done in countless other dungeons across the series?

** You could also ask how Link is able to customize the ship so quickly, when what he is doing is basically dismantling the entire thing and reassembling it with all-new parts - this is something that, as far as I know, should take hours or days and cost more than just what Link pays for each part.

[[folder:King of Red Lions]]

* What happened to the King of Red Lions in between the previous game and this one? Link and Tetra were supposed to be searching for new lands as per his final wish, and while I can understand that they would do a little pirating on the side and that Link would have a need to sleep on board her ship instead of in his teeny, tiny sailboat, but...Such a deep, dynamic and emotional character as the King of Hyrule in ''The Wind Waker'', and yet there's absolutely ''no'' mention of him in the beginning, Link doesn't seem to consider boarding his smaller, faster sailboat in order to chase after the Ghost Ship, and the only reference we see toward the late king is almost a quarter of the way through the game, in practically what amounts to a joke.

[[folder:The memories of the other spirits]]
* Why don't Leaf and Neri remember that Ciela is the Spirit of Courage? Even if she's supposed to be yellow instead of white, she still has the same name and the same voice, and when she does finally refuse with her other half, the other two seem to recognize her instantly. So what gives?

[[folder:Split!]]
* Not that she was my favorite partner, but Ciela is one of the few companions Link has where it makes little sense that she has to leave his side in the end, when you think about it. She had already split herself in two before, with her personality being one half and her powers being the other - now that she's been restored to her full power at the end of the game and has the might of the Ocean King on her side, you'd think she would be able to make the split again in a more balanced, controlled manner, wouldn't she? Her spirit half could stay and continue to serve the Ocean King, while her actual persona could just stay with Link, if she really wanted to.
