** When brought together, the four Fused Shadows are clearly intended to be some sort of a mask or helmet. Midna also doesn't have any way of carrying it with her, and it could very well be the source of all the powers she displays in-game - before putting it on, she's only shown walking, and the tentacles of the beast she turns into when she wears the complete set are meant to resemble the hand she can form from her ponytail, suggesting the one piece she starts out with is responsible for her ability to do that.

*** Yes, this game is in the same timeline and before ''Breath of the Wild'' chronologically. During Link's knighting ceremony, Zelda mentions the Master Sword being "...steeped in the glowing embers of twilight...", a clear reference to ''Twilight Princes''.

*** I realize why it may look like that, by that's not exactly concrete...The Divine Beasts are named after sages who were only awoken in the two timelines ''Twilight Princess'' has no part in, and one of them explicitly was a Rito, who so far seem to have been limited to the Adult branch. Zelda's comment about the twilight could be some sort of background continuity nod or something - there's far too much evidence in favor of the other two timelines for that to be the defining piece of evidence.

** Has it been confirmed that ''Breath of the Wild'' is this game's sequel? Either way, it's possible that the Gerudo traveled elsewhere after the events of ''Ocarina of Time'', leading to their absence here, and then returned to appear in ''Four Swords Adventures''. (Which ''is'' a sequel.) The arrest and attempted execution of their king can't have done their reputation any favors, after all.

** With Hyrule being overtaken by Twilight, maybe the boundaries between it and the Twilight Realm cease to exist, making it possible to traverse the two without the Mirror (hence how Midna was able to get to Hyrule without it). Now with the light restored, the only way to reach the Twilight Realm is to use the Mirror.

** Or Ilia, being little more than a child, is under the delusion that being the mayor gives him the right to dictate what people can and can not do with their property.

At first I thought that because of their complete absence in the Gerudo Desert (or anywhere else in the game), that the Gerudo were victims of an InferredHolocaust because of Ganondorf's actions leading to their persecution. However, in [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild Breath of the Wild]], the Gerudo are back and on good terms with the rest of the world. So where were they during the events of this game?

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?

**Here's a better question: why kidnap everybody but Link? They had no reason to believe he was anything more than another dumb kid, and if they did think he was too much trouble, why kill him right then and there? Did King Bulbin respect his moxey and already decide he wanted to see what he would do?

** 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.
