[[WMG: The events Link goes through have a lot more blood and gore than shown]]
Doylist perspective: Link leaves behind a lot more corpses than the games show. Due to the technical limitations of the consoles (a bunch of bodies lying around uses up RAM), as well as the need to keep the rating below M, the games show the bodies of Link’s enemies going poof in a way fitting for the art style. In-universe, there is a trail of corpses.

The exceptions to this are certain bosses, some spirit-type enemies like Poe, and the Garo. When they die, the Garo say that they will leave no corpse, implying that this is different than the other enemies. Some bosses do burn up in magic fire as the dark magic that created them dissolves. This is not universal among bosses (see King Dongongo). Spirits do not have bodies necessary to leave corpses.

I will admit that I like this theory mostly because it allows for the badass mental image of Wolf Link, while carrying Injured!Midna, muzzle soaked in the blood of the monsters that stood in his way while their corpses lay on the ground with their throats torn out. The Hero of the Twilight does have some serious Papa Wolf tendencies.

[[WMG:The difference between Bunny!Link and Wolf!Link is damage from the timeline split]]
When the timeline broke, the soul of Hylia’s champion was broken between each timeline. His soul had cracks and holes in it, and to repair the holes in his soul, Hylia had to repair his soul with a compatible soul from some creature.

In the Downfall timeline, a small piece of the Hero’s soul made it over. This piece remembered that he lost. For all his courage, he died a failure. His soul became weak and timid. The strongest, yet still compatible soul was a bunny. This made Bunny!Link.

In the Adult timeline, Link won. This piece of his soul remembers winning, but not being sent back and losing Navi. The gods claimed this timeline’s piece of his soul when Zelda sent him back. His soul was mostly intact, but needed patching. His self-confidence and love of adventure from before his journey (see the carvings at the base of his treehouse) meant that a cat’s soul was used to patch the damage. This resulted in the curiosity and narcolepsy that the incarnations of the hero in that timeline display. He also makes for a good rat catcher for Zelda in Spirit Tracks.

In the Child timeline, he remembered winning, losing Navi, and living afterward. He set out to track Navi down. On the way he faced many powerful monsters and never gave up. His tenacity grew, as did his skill. When he reached Termina, he donned the Fierce Deity Mask, which left a mark. When the hero finally died, his damaged soul had grown, matured, and been filled with restless energy, drive to protect, Tremendous Ferocity, and a relentless need to fulfill his mission, but without the ability to recognize when it is time to hang up his sword and shield. The only compatible soul was a wolf.

It's how he holds all of that stuff without being encumbered. In his ''VideoGame/SoulCalibur'' and ''SuperSmashBrothers'' appearances he is shown to be pulling his bombs, bow and arrow, and boomerang from that general area.

***You're forgetting that without a scale from Valoo (which clearly is not passed on like an heirloom, and instead requires each individual Rito to ascend the mountain), having Rito blood means little more than red eyes and a beak, as well as assumedly dark skin if you're male, or pale white if you're female.

***Due to something hinted at in ''[=TWW=]'' regarding the spring water, that being The Great Deku Tree explaining that the water was not normal, and that it also expired if taken away from the forest, it's possible that the water within reach of any Great Deku Tree is akin to a Fountain of Youth. Anyone drinking this water with the blessings of the Great Deku Tree will not be permitted to age, or if so, ages at an extremely gradual rate. As for those who drink the water without GDT's blessing... Well, how do you think Stalfos and Skullchildren came to be? I think that the blessing has a cursed effect based on how impure the drinker is. Children become reclusive and twisted, whilst adults are turned into mindless monsters. It's explicitly pointed out than any adults who wander into the forest become Stalfos. Link is an exception to this, as he not only has the blessing of the late GDT, but then immediately is given this same blessing by his successor. Consider further that before the sprout took over guarding the forest, every monster that came to plague the village was either Plant or Water based. Once these monsters found the water was blessed again, they had to retreat or die.

[[WMG: Zora/Rito are, as a race, dependent on their physical god for their form.]]
In OoT, the Zora revere their lord Jabu-Jabu, a giant fish. Also, the Zora possess scales, which they can give away. These scales can allow a non-Zora to gain impressive diving skills.
In WW, the Rito revere their lord Valoo, a dragon. Also, the Rito must receive a scale from the dragon, in order to grow the wings which allow them to fly across the great sea.
Perhaps the Zora/Rito race are in-fact a very malleable, adaptable race of beings, able to take on the physical traits of other creatures by borrowing their scales. In this context, children are born bearing similar traits to their parents, but are not fully formed until they gain a scale from their physical god. Perhaps generations of these creatures taking on different scales could change the physiology of the race as a whole, or perhaps it can happen in a single generation.
Now, what if a young Zora took on a leaf from the Deku Tree instead? Or a scale from the Great Dodongo? I'm not sure if a lava-swimming, bombflower-eating zora would be awesome or terrifying!

[[WMG: Not all people are strong mages but most can at least some magic.]]
Link floating items over his head isn't only a simpler way of doing it, or else he would've stopped in OOT. Instead it's a [[Literature/{{Phenomena}} levitation spell]]. Most people learn it in Hyrule's world at an early age and they do it not only too seem cool but because it's an easy way to stay safe. Preparing food but has a cold you don't wanna pass over to your family? Levitate it and the tools so you won't touch with germy hands. Not sure what's in a chest, levitate it so if it was dangerous like a taratula, snake, poison, etc, you wouldn't have touched it. Something dropped into the toilet? Levitate it out without getting dirty. It's super useful! The reason I don't think Hylians only can do it is that [[TokenHuman Ilia]] does it, Link in OOT does it and he was raised by Kokiri, sereval does it in Hyrule Warriors, etc.
