** On the subject of the helmet, what if it's just a ClingyMacGuffin? It wouldn't be so hard to believe that an ArtifactOfDoom that's been shown to cause TheCorruption ''might'' be able to glue itself to Midna's head (or just produce a sort of compulsion effect that overrides any idea of ever taking it off). Midna wasn't exactly in her right mind when she put it ''on'' to begin with... she was just on the receiving end of a [[BalefulPolymorph none-too-pleasant experience]], which is bound to affect her ability to make judgement calls.



* It it just me, or is the presence of a ''prison'' where the Spirit Temple used to be a little more than disconcerting? Not only a prision, but a Hylian prison built OVER the Spirit Temple -- the Gerudo architecture can still be seen in many places, but the 'arena' and the main foyer are obviously Hylian construction. Pointing out the absence of the Gerudo... and the fact that the temple is *filled* with bones... yeeiigh. If you fit this fact in with the 'child timeline', it makes it look like that when Zelda/Link got Ganondorf apprehended before he got to cause trouble, the King of Hyrule went after ''ALL'' the Gerudo... and had them imprisoned? Executed? Fed to the enormous dragon whose skeleton is still at the bottom of the arena pit? There are a lot of scary implications... no wonder Ganondorf is completely crazy in Twilight Princess. The whole being-executed-before-committing-the-crime thing aside, he comes back and sees '''''THE GENOCIDE OF HIS ENTIRE PEOPLE'''''. Yeah, that merits a little more than insanity.

** Alternatively, maybe he did it that way on purpose... it'd be one thing to suddenly break free and have an ensuing beatdown, and something else entirely to survive being impaled with a big glowing sword, snap the chains, and one-shot one of his would-be executioners. He's the king of evil, it's not surprising he might pull that kind of mind game.

** Besides, even though Midna felt the need to break the mirror, nobody ever affirmed that it was necessarily the right thing to do. This is the same woman/imp who pulled a ShapeshifterGuiltTrip on Link at the beginning of the story, mocks [[BigGood Zelda]] for no apparent reason other than [[ForTheLulz that she can]], seeks out not one, but ''two'' different Artifact|s|OfDoom, both of which have some form of TheCorruption (and one of which she spent the majority of the game wearing), and is [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking a troll to Link for most of the game.]] Sure, she seems to have gotten better, but the only context we have for that is in Link, who she's spent the entire adventure with and would doubtless form a friendship with, and Zelda, who just sort of seems to have that kind of effect on people. By and large, she probably still doesn't have a high opinion of Hyrule as a whole and she'd want to seal off any possibility of further intrusion as a result. Obviously, [[WhatTheHellHero Link and Zelda would probably take issue with this]], so she didn't consult with them before carrying it out (or if she did, she went against their decision... [[ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight Screw the rules, I'm doing what I think is right?]]), as evidenced by the look of shock on their faces.

** I was under the impression that he never actually had the Triforce of Power; rather, he simply had ''the affinity of'' the Triforce of Power, plus loads of BadAss and {{Determinator}}.

Why do they all have pillows wrapped around their waist with belts? Is this a safety precation against the goats? A traditional fashion? What's going on?

**I figured it was either to keep the game being too dark or a normal thing missed by the developers. Midna would suck it up and allow Link to kill because he had to. Showing her look resentful or depressed over the circumstances with a few words acknowledging the tradegy could've been shown at best. I wonder if such a statement would've boosted the age-rating? Also, most characters in this type of action-genre tend to mass murder for the greater good without a thought. It's possible the creators didn't even consider it, since it's so normal.

**Even if it's a Fantasy game, it still takes place in a medieval setting. Being a wolf might just be too much for human to handle. Even if they knew he was a human & the hero of time, transforming into a wolf would tarnish his image for life. That's a lifetime of strangers distrusting you just because they fear what you turn into.

**People can develop amnesia really easy. Traumatic experiences, strokes, and even road trips have caused amnesia. Memories are a really easy thing to lose. But also, she fell into the fountain. Watering holes tend to have rocks in them. She probably just bashed her head.
