[[WMG: Zauz is this timeline's incarnation of Ganondorf.]]
However, instead of trying to kill Link he's biding his time as he can't defeat Bellum due to his ancestor's power being weakened in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker Wind Waker]]''. So he helps Link defeat it in the hopes that with Bellum out of the way, he can TakeOverTheWorld.
[[WMG: The World of the Ocean King is Termina several hundred years later, flooded just like Hyrule was.]]
[[WMG: Bellum is this timeline's version of [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Majora]].]]
Both Majora and Bellum terrorize a pocket dimension version of Hyrule, and they both also have those creepy yellow eyes. Perhaps an octopus accidentally grabbed Majora's mask after Termina flooded.
