** She's a ten-year-old. If she even ''did'' send any invitations, odds are the post office would've thrown them out, and so she just asks Link to aid in maintaining her little-girl antics by collecting bugs. Also, snails are hermaphrodites, being capable of changing their gender, so it's more likely the door Link passes through reverts the snail he caught in the present back to its original gender in the past.

*** He's a collector of rare, short-lived currency? (And before you ask when Hyrule ever used gold coins, my answer is "Probably in between games."

* Agitha sent invitations to the 24 golden bugs in the world. '''''ONE OF THEM IS IN THE DISTANT PAST'''''. This is less about whether this snail, the other snail, or, indeed, any of the ''actual'' bugs (It Just Gastropods Me?) she sent invitations to received them, and more about how she knew it was somewhere to begin with.

** I think the door that Link passes through is similar to the Timeshift Stones - it doesn't actually take him to the past, but rather creates a projection of what everything in the area would've looked like back then. Thus, the mirror shard was hidden somewhere just beyond the Sacred Grove, which requires Link to pass through the door to get past the ruins.

** Perhaps, even as far as the Gorons are concerned, what the sumo match is partially a test of is whether or not you have the Iron Boots. They know that the mining facility is not possible for humans to traverse without them, and since it's also not possible for the standard hero to win in a sumo match against a Goron without them, the latter makes a suitable test for the former. Thus, it's not a cheat (though what would be a cheat is still unknown), but one of the points of it.

** Perhaps, though I guess they'd have to make some attacks take more sections of heart to compensate.

** Time might flow differently in the Twilight realm. Also, don't assume that Ganon instantly had full and complete power over the Triforce the moment he had it. He probably needed time to build himself up before he could take another swing at things.

** He needs the Shadow Crystal in order to transform, and seeing as he can't even touch it ''without'' transforming, I think what's implied is that Midna kept it with her while they were on their adventure, and just poked at him with it whenever he needed to assume his beastform. So once Midna goes back to the Twilight Realm and shatters the mirror, no, I'd assume Link would remain as a human from then on. (Not that you're unable to transform during the final battle if Midna isn't with you, both when Ganon-as-Zelda knocks her out of the throne room and after she sacrifices herself.)

[[folder: Timeline]]
* How long after ''Ocarina of Time'' does this game take place? The backstory pretty much goes, "Link returns to his childhood at the end of ''Ocarina of Time'', rats on Ganondorf to Zelda and her father, and journeys into Termina while he's arrested and sentenced to death. Due to the Triforce of Courage coming back with Link, Ganondorf survives the execution due to the piece that came to ''him'', and then the sages banish him to the Twilight Realm out of desperation." Now, after all of this, enough time had to have passed for the Kokiri to vanish from the world, the Temple of Time to be overtaken by forest, and the Hero of Time to have started a family and sired a line of descendants. But Midna's coronation and overthrow by Zant, I can imagine only would've taken a few days, at most, after all of this, so what was Ganondorf doing that whole time, and why didn't he open up the mirror and return to the light world right away?

[[folder: Transforming Without Midna]]
* Okay, just finished the game story-wise, and I can't help wondering if Link can still transform into a wolf without Midna. Sure, you "need" her help in game, but that's probably more for ease of access for the player... right? Are we given any concrete evidence that he definitely needs Midna to transform? Or would all the magic shenanigans he got blasted with mean that he has the ability to do so on his own now?
