[[folder: Tatl and Kafei]] * Tatl, along with Link, is not subject to the rules of time travel and can remember everything that has happened in previous cycles. Yet, when Tatl and Link meet Kafei behind the Curiosity Shop, she always expresses her surprise that Kafei is a child instead of the adult that they were looking for. If she and Link met Kafei before in a previous cycle, shouldn't she remember Kafei's explanation that Majora cursed him? There are numerous cutscenes in the game that change upon repeated viewing (e.g. the cutscene atop the Clock Tower, where Tatl's dialogue depends on whether it's your first time or whether you've awakened all four giants), so why wasn't this cutscene changed so that Tatl would say something like, "Let me guess... a masked imp cursed you, and that's why you're a kid, right?" after the first cycle?

** With the power over time behind the nature of Link's heroics in Termina, this Troper figures that the transformation masks do a local memory rewrite. Upon placing a mask on and transforming, all those interacting with Link at the moment simply have their memories altered so as to have no knowledge of Link being in another form. He's simply always been a Goron, Deku, Zora, or Hylian (Terminan?) to whomever is concerned.

TRS feels this trope needs to be cut on the grounds of complaining.
** The description of the song says that it gives someone who lost their voice back to them. A [[CardboardObstacle Cardboard Song]] per say.

** Also, it's an [[AcceptableBreaksFromReality Acceptable Break From Reality]]: You have to go to a lot more trouble to get the Gilded Sword than you do to get the Razor Sword (winning a Goron race, which can take several tries vs. just paying 100 rupees and fast-forwarding a day). You'd be pretty pissed if all that effort went away when you traveled back in time.

*** Teeny-tiny eyeholes still means no peripheral vision.

*** ** Teeny-tiny eyeholes still means no peripheral vision.

*** The curse over the canyon at Stone Tower is probably the most vaguely explained overall, since many characters there only refer to it as a "curse", and very little seems to change, apart from the Gibdoes going away, after defeating Twinmold. I think the case was that the curse brought the deceased from Ikana's bloody history back to life, and they were basically forced to go through a living death, continually facing the regrets of the past, until Twinmold's defeat gave them the opportunity to return to their eternal rest when they wanted to, thus explaining why some of them continue to hang around, while others disappear completely after the curse lifts.

** Or that's his catchphrase to greet every customer. Maybe it's an icebreaker - "Hey, look, it's my favorite customer!" "What? You've never met me before." "You make a good point. Why not sit down and tell me about yourself?"

** It's also possible that each of the four temples has a clock mechanism similar to the clock tower's built into them, and so they all have bells that ring out over their respective areas as the one in Clock Town does.

** Fair enough, but the point still stands that you could go into the Milk Bar on the Final Day without accomplishing anything at all in the current cycle, and he'd still say you're his favorite...which is weird. Unless Mr. Barten subscribes to the organization of characters in Termina who are unaffected by time travel, which, I'll admit, I wouldn't quite put past him.

** The leaves were a part of his body when he was alive.

** The leaves were a part of his body when he was alive. Alternatively, Skull Kid simply sapped the Deku of his spirit, his spirit being his sentience as a living, thinking being, but he was still ''alive'' as a plant. Something like the dementor's kiss, I suppose. It still lives you alive, but you're all but dead on the inside.)
