** I think I have an answer: They need Link's blood, but Link also has to be dead for it to work. So all they need is some of his blood, and wait for him to die. Considering that he's probably lost a fair bit of blood throughout his journey, getting stabbed, smashed, bitten, clawed, and who-knows what else, all they need is to take it off the sword or teeth of whatever monster he's killed after he's left, and save it for when he finally dies.

** [[http://www.digitpress.com/library/manuals/nes/Zelda%20II%20-%20The%20Adventure%20of%20Link.pdf The manual]] indicates that Hyrule is dying: because Ganon's ashes are powerful and corrupting, but also because the country is so overrun with monsters and bandits that no one has a monopoly of violence, and so the common people can hardly even sow a crop and reap it in peace. Link has been trying to aid in normal reconstruction efforts, taming the wilderness and pushing back the monsters, but chaos is winning; and so he, with Impa's advice, attempts a last-ditch gamble. Success -- uniting the Triforce and wishing for peace -- is a complete victory for Hyrule; failure means that the country dies quickly instead of slowly. Maybe some other adventurer can stop Ganon, or maybe he'll tick off a kingdom that can forge magic swords and silver arrows for their knights.

** Technical limitations? They needed a NonstandardGameOver for when Link dies in a way that Ganon's minions can't use, and the whole setting ends up stuck.

**Link does not have the full Triforce and they require his blood.

** To be honest, how would he even know that his death means Ganon's revival? I don't think the manual says that he gets outright told that, if he were to die, Ganon would be revived. I think it only says that killing Link to revive Ganon is the motivation of his minions, which explains why they keep going after him in the game.

** A minor DubInducedPlotHole: Tektites can be defeated with any weapon in the Japanese version of the game.

* Link's priorities seem to be a little skewed here. If Ganon intends to revive himself through Link, his body, blood and soul becoming the [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt new unstoppable form for the prince of darkness to lay waste to the world]]. '''WHY''' is he risking not just his life? But the fate of the entire kingdom for one girl stuck in eternal slumer?

** Do not get me wrong. This is a wonderful selfless thing to do for someone, but what an ''incredibly reckless'' course of action for a person to take. Its far too risky. If you fail, your death now seals the ''doom'' of the entire world. And '''WHY''' aren't the Hylian guards or somebody watching over this young man?

man? If in charge I'd have a small army of elite soldiers swarming around him.

** Talk to them four times in a row and they will give you a hint. The bot in Saria tells you where to find Bagu, the ache in Darunia tells you where to find a heart piece.
** Thanks for telling me. However, that is one big load of [[GuideDangIt Guide Dang It]]. If you talk to them the first three times and all they do is snore, how could the developers expect you to talk to an apparently useless character four times? Luckily, I found both Bagu and that heart piece by accident the first time I ever played, so I never needed their hints regardless.
