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.

* ''ALTTP'' can't happen before it, both because ''OOT'' was Ganondorf's StartOfDarkness and because ''ALTTP'''s ending says that the "Master Sword sleeps again forever", precluding its use in future games.

** Why would that make more sense? None of the games (that involve the Triforce) can come before ''Ocarina of Time'', because in that game Ganon makes his original bid for the Triforce. In fact, at the time of its release it was a pretty explicit prequel to ''A Link to the Past'', depicting the backstory events alluded to. My thought is that Nintendo execs simply figured that the latest generation of gamers didn't know anything about that "old" SNES game and felt free to drop it in favor of new sequels to ''OOT''.

* Multiple-choice-boxes are immune. Link says "I hate Ganondorf!" the first time he meets Nabooru in ''OOT'', and declares himself to be "an ally of justice" while reasoning with a thief in ''WW''. Still, he does tend to give a simple "yes" or "no" most of the time.

Anyway, back to Spira: the world floods between ''OOT'' and ''WW'', [[spoiler:the continent of Zanarkand]] becomes the archipelago of Spira, and meanwhile, the ''Legend of Zelda'' games are taking place, following the ''Wind Waker'' timeline. The Island Fish in ''Link's Awakening'' (no matter the timeline) is a version of Sin, hanging out in the ocean while [[spoiler:it regenerates]], and Marin was an unsent, influencing Link's dream and allowing her to get her happy ending and manifest as a seagull instead of a fiend. Possibly [[spoiler:the guardian of the last High Summoner previous to ''Link's Awakening'']], trying to find a way to escape being bound by [[spoiler:Sin's body]], at least for a short time.

** I meant a Great Fairy. And anyway, a much worse fate for Navi would be to have her life force run out at the end of ''OOT'', if you hate her so much.

Consider: in ''VideoGame/ZeldaIITheAdventureOfLink'', Old and New Kasuto are the only towns which do not share their name with a character from ''Ocarina of Time''. Impa and Zelda are the only Sages who do not have towns named for them, Zelda, for what I would think are fairly obvious reasons. We also know that Impa, like Link and Zelda, is a legacy character -- this is the name of the nursemaid and/or bodyguard of the princess in the original game, ''Zelda II'', ''Ocarina of Time'', and the ''Oracle'' games. It stands to reason, therefore, that "Impa" is not the character's actual name, but rather a title assigned to the princess's chief female attendant. The ''OOT'' Impa's real name was Kasuto, and so the towns in ''Zelda II'' are indeed all named for characters.

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.

Think for a moment about where each one was when Link "awakened" them. Saria ran unarmed into a monster-infested temple, with her last heard words being desperate cries for help. Darunia challenges Volvagia without the one weapon that could defeat him, and is never seen after entering Volvagia's chamber. Ruto immediately rushed into the Water Temple. Impa chased an undead monster into a mass grave. Nabooru took a direct hit from Koume and Kotake. Rauru was never shown out of the Sacred Realm in the first place. Notice how the only time you see these people after these events are when they appear in the not exactly material Sacred Realm, and notice that several of them regret not being able to fulfill promises such as marriage (Ruto) or...er, other activities ([[{{Shotacon}} Nabooru]]). Why? Because they're ''dead''. However, this ''isn't'' true of the Wind and Earth Sages in ''The Wind Waker''.

[[WMG: Each timeline after Ocarina of Time is based off of on of the pieces of the Triforce]]
Each of the branches is based on of the three virtues. Downfall is Power: Ganon, the holder of Power, was victorious; Child is Wisdom: Zelda, the holder of Wisdom, sent Link back the his childhood so he can live his life; Adult is Courage: The games in this branch of the timeline are mainly about exploring new worlds. Link and Tetra leave to explore the worlds beyond the remains of Hyrule in Wind waker, Link explores the world of the Ocean King in Phantom Hourglass, and Link and Zelda explore New Hyrule in Spirit Tracks. Exploring the unknown takes Courage, so the Adult branch is based in this.

*[[DivergentCharacterEvolution So the Rito and Zora becoming two differant races]] could be explained by the original zoras getting split apart and having enough time to settle into their new forms with them likely embracing the powers of their great divine beasts

Link's Crossbow Training. Go figure. Hopefully it'll use the ''VideoGame/{{Metroid Prime 3|Corruption}}'' engine, I love those controls.

Not the Wii one, though, since that seems to be finally telling the origin story for the Master Sword. But the ground has already been laid with steam-based Zelda games, cannons in several, and Link's Crossbow Training. Remember that Miyamoto's original concept for ''Ocarina of Time'' was Zelda done as an FPS. Link will get a gun eventually, probably done tastefully to maintain the medieval European theme, as in ''Fable 2'' -- a primitive but powerful weapon that needs reloading, and will no doubt include several magical varieties of ammunition.

*** ''FSA'' actually occurs in the Adult Timeline, after ''TP''.

*** ''ALBW'' showed that "forever" apparently meant "a century or two".

[[WMG: The Triforce is responsible for all of it. ]]
The timeline referenced in the books confirm that, up to a point, it's all one history - and after that, one of several histories. Three people in the same dance - a warrior king, a young hero, a princess, over and over and over. What they all have in common is the Triforce: a mystical artifact of origin unknown beyond involving mythic, divine beings. The real question is whether the Triforce knows what it's doing when it manipulates history to bring about the save-the-princess-unite-the-triangles narrative so many times, or whether it's just having that effect - a storybook from some library belonging to an EldritchAbomination whose mere existence is twisting reality into permutations of its own narrative, a device designed to amplify magical abilities in certain bloodlines it's in contact with so they eventually rise to power and create conflicts...it could be just about anything.

Jolene did say that they hadn't met in [[{{Foreshadowing}} 100 years]]. Given he's a [[PiratesOfTheCaribbean Jack Sparrow]] {{Expy}}, he might have gotten cursed with the ''Zelda'' equivalent of the [[CursedWithAwesome Aztec gold curse]].
