It had to be said. There are three Goddesses, with the Triforce that represents them (perhaps unintentionally) evoking the Christian Holy Trinity. Obviously, they're {{God}}. Ganondorf is "only" a human, albeit one who somehow gained a piece of God's power. Not quite Devil material. Then who would be the Zelda Satan? Well, certainly none of the villains who ended up HijackedByGanon. But of those who weren't, Majora has the whole bit of "mocking" God. Three forms: the "Mask", the "Incarnation", and the "Wrath", as a parody of the Holy Trinity. Remember that in TheDivineComedy, Satan himself had three faces in a similar mocking. The NumberOfTheBeast is also a "trinity" (of sixes, in this case) in an attempt to mock God.

[[WMG: Majora is on of the gods worshiped by [[SilentHill The Order]] ]]
It's a monster that tries to destroy the world, and it's later forms certainly look like something out of Silent Hill.

Both Ganon and Ikana are the kings of their respective lands, which are located in desert-like lands. Both are large in height, wear topaz jewelry (Ikana's brooch, Ganondorf's head jewel and necklace) and cloth with intricate patterns, and have red hair (in Ikana's case, his beard spikes). In a way, Igos represents what Ganondorf would become in 'Wind Waker': a being who longs for the old days, but has to resign himself to the fact that things will never be as they once were. Only difference is that while Igos just accepted his fate, Ganon would get the whole Triforce and come close to resurrecting Hyrule.

[[WMG: Pamela's father's name is Tortus, and Pamela and Anju are sisters.]]
Admittedly, this theory came from a dream, but ideas are ideas. Tortus's ever-increasing passion for his study of Ikana and the undead was what drove a wedge between him and his family. He felt restless in Clock Town and wanted to move to the canyon, but his wife and older daughter were firmly settled in their lives, and his mother thought he was being foolish (and was too old to travel, anyway). Pamela was only a baby, so she didn't have much to leave behind, and he ended up taking her with him -- it took a lot of convincing, probably a fair amount of pleading, but his ex-wife ''very'' grudgingly allowed him to take his younger daughter with him to his new life. Anju and her mother buried the emotions and moved on with their lives, but Anju gets strangely wistful sometimes, and her mother is never quite free of an underlying bitterness...

* Saria's my favorite Zelda character. As much as it pains me to admit, he blatantly forgot about her. He's definitely searching for Navi, everything points to it, everything stated on the matter by devs and in the game manual, and in-game itself, all point to him searching for Navi. I'd absolutely love it if he really was searching for Saria, but there's nothing whatsoever to indicate he is, and rather everything indicates to him blatantly forgetting about the one person he had left to call his friend in a game heavily centered around the theme of friendship. (We don't even know what happened to his Fairy Ocarina. Presumably he kept it, but there's nothing to suggest he still has it.)

* Entirely possible there were Kokiri in Termina, but its far more likely that they merely traveled between the two worlds, since they live right in the Lost Woods, which has a portal to Termina. They probably didn't go extinct, they just left and didn't come back. Perhaps because the world became too dangerous or the Great Deku Tree of Termina was destroyed, or both.

[[WMG: The Happy Mask Salesman is the [[spoiler: Soul of the Moon]]]]
We know that the moon has some sort of life, as it speaks while [[spoiler: attempting to fall on Termina under Majora's influence]]. But if it's so convinced to destroy all life, then why is it raining moon TEARS? When it speaks, it merely states that it wants to consume all. It's portrayed as a mindless entity, a slave to Majora. So if Majora is controlling it, and it's become mindless, what happened to its consciousness? That's where the Happy Mask Salesman comes in. A mysterious man who instantly knows your situation, moves in erratic, inhuman ways, and has a grudge against Majora? Seems kind of suspicious. The guise of the Happy Mask Salesman isn't his actual appearance, it's just AFormYouAreComfortableWith. He pretends to be after Majora's Mask, but really he's after Majora itself. This is evidenced by simply fading away after Majora's defeat, and when the moon is freed from its influence.

The Happy Mask Salesman is also the only entity in the game who remains after the Moon crushes Termina in a game over, though we don't see his physical form. And who else would be left on the planet? Maybe Majora, and the Moon. However, the HMS is only a fraction of the Moon's Soul. The rest of it, embodied by the Moon Children, has been sealed away in the bosses, which gives them their power. And due to their being sealed away with a mask by a masked Skull Kid, they've come to associate masks with evil, which explains their obsession with obtaining them. They want to take them and destroy them.

So, to recap, HMS is actually the Moon's disembodied soul manipulating you into freeing it to return to its body. The intellectual part, or Ego, split and disguised itself as the Happy Mask Salesman, taking the idea out of Link's Memory. The rest of its mind is sealed away in the Moon Children (Superego) and the Moon itself (Id). Defeating Majora frees them and allows them to control themselves again. HMS never had any intention of reclaiming the mask, he just wanted you to destroy it.

Majora's Mask is [[Persona2EternalPunishment Nyarlathotep]], The Moon is Nyx, The Happy Mask Salesman is either Philemon or Igor, and almost everyone in Termina is a Persona User, which would make Link a Wild Card. The Happy Mask Salesman does give you what it essentially your first mask, or in this case, Persona. The themes of Major's Mask and Persona 3 do fit with each other, knowing that death is inescapable.
