** The Wii U's Virtual Console version, meanwhile, requires you to open and close the HOME or VC menus. Both cases are a lot more cryptic than the original solution, though - a lot of people left questions on Miiverse asking how they were supposed to solve it.

** Because the Black Rupoor isn't actually a stone, it's a solidified black hole in magical stasis. It activates itself only when in contact with air, so it will only be effective when Link digs it out. And once it's out, it'll suck any Rupees in its effect radius, and the rupees closest to it will be, invariably the ones in Link's... uh... pockets? Anywhat, then it destroys itself taking the Rupees away. So it's not a matter of "taking or not taking", it's about finding at all. Hey, ''you'' asked.
** A black rupoor is a [[UnrealisticBlackHole Black Hole]]? [[FridgeLogic What would happen if there were too much of them]]?

** I've always imagined Rupoors as made of antimatter, which would cause a massive explosion upon contact with matter- Link's hand or shovel in this case. Why don't they react to air or dirt, which is also matter? Why do they only destroy Rupees? Answer: [[AWizardDidIt Magic!]]

** Hey, if [[Webcomic/{{Hiimdaisy}} The King Of Hyrule Is a Jerk]], I don't see why King Mutoh doesn't have to be a jerk.
** Brant was kept on the Isle of the Dead because his temple was there and so he could guard the Regal Necklace, the only key to the Isle of Ruins. As for why his temple was built there, perhaps when the Cobble Kingdom was still alive and thriving, Brant's home was located somewhere on or near the Isle of the Dead, and he wanted to do something that would bring some great honor to it. After he died, King Mutoh and the other Knights could have figured being buried there is what he would've wanted.

** The idea is that [[spoiler: it's ''not'' AllJustADream]] - Link's possession of the Phantom Hourglass in the end, as well as the sight of Linebeck sailing on the horizon, was meant to clarify that point.

** ArtisticLicenseShips. I'm more confused as to why they chose to include the S.S. Linebeck at all, instead of just bringing back the King of Red Lions. Isn't that like having Link ride Epona in ''Ocarina of Time'' and then just giving him an entirely new horse with no explanation in ''Majora's Mask''.

* 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?

** There's much more to recognize. As is mentioned, they should recognize her voice, and her spunky, courageous personality, and her ability to sense evil, and her name is still the same, too. Plus, Ciela's line "You look just like me!" when her other half is freed would imply that there's some difference between her appearance and that of most other fairies - otherwise, she wouldn't compare it specifically to herself.

** 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.

** They probably started to believe it all on their own. The ghost ship looks like a pirate ship, and what pirate ship doesn't have pirate booty?

** Well, so did the Earth Temple in ''The Wind Waker". (True, that dungeon had less floors, but the floors in ''Phantom Hourglass'' are a lot smaller, vertically, than TWW's.)

[[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.
