** Also, it's possible that Romani is capable of riding a horse and shooting a bow, but not good enough at them to do both at once. She may be more confident shooting from the ground.

Added DiffLines:

*** Not to mention, A.) Brute Force wouldn't do anything against the Skull Kid; he can withstand attacks from every weapon in Link's inventory with nothing but a childish giggle. The reason the Oath to Order works is because it gives him a chance to fight the mask's control by reminding him of his friends, the Four Giants. B.) The Giants are implied to be somewhat ethereal in nature -- they fade in out of nowhere when summoned, their movements don't cause any damage to the Terminan landscape, and they appear to be holding back the moon at least partially through magic, rather than simple strength. Link putting on the Giant's Mask wouldn't grant any such advantage. All it would do is likely cause the clock tower to collapse beneath his weight.

** Someone or something in the game states that Kafei used to be a member of the Bombers, right? As long as he knows their passcode, he could've taken the tunnel from East Clock Town to the observatory and then hopped the fence outside to bypass the gate guards.

Added DiffLines:

** This question stems from something that was retconned in ''Hyrule Historia''. When the Happy Mask Salesman teaches you the Song of Healing, he says it turns both "evil curses" and "troubled spirits" into masks. But the only evil curse it ever has an effect on is the one that turned Link into a Deku Scrub, because ''Hyrule Historia'' reveals that that wasn't even a curse -- it was just the "troubled spirit" of another Deku Scrub being fused with Link's. This implies the song only really works against troubled spirits and that the mask salesman was just incorrect in his explanation of its powers. So the reason Link couldn't use it to help Kafei is because it doesn't have that power to begin with.

Added DiffLines:

*** The Japanese version did, as seen [[https://zeldauniverse.net/forums/Thread/183385-Timeline-and-other-interesting-tidbits-in-Hyrule-Encyclopedia/ here]]. The real disgusting thing is that some fans actually try to justify this crap. "Well, maybe only ''Lorule's'' Triforce causes the world to fall apart" they argue, which doesn't hold water because Ravio clearly spells to out to Hilda that stealing the Triforce would "ruin" Hyrule in the ending.

Added DiffLines:

**** Does the book really say that? That the Triforce was destroyed at the end of ''The Wind Waker''?


*** Whoever wrote the ''Wind Waker'' section never played ''Link Between Worlds'', as they think the Triforce can be destroyed with no ill effect; The world was clearly ''not'' falling apart in ''Phantom Hourglass'' and ''Spirit Tracks'.'

** The English Encyclopedia tried to fix that part... keyword being "tried". The Skull Kid only "Transformed" Termina under Majora's influence, and did not create it, which (sort) fixes the plothole regarding the flashback. However, they also forgot to change the part about Termina ceasing to exist, [[VoodooShark thus adding a new plothole to replace it]]. And yeah, the writers of the Japanese Encyclopedia clearly slipped their minds on several parts: Whoever wrote the ''Ocarina'' section never played ''Skyward Sword'', as they seemingly have no knowledge of Demise and think Ganon's reincarnation was all his own doing; whereas whoever wrote the ''Wind Waker'' section never played ''Link Between Worlds'', as they think the Triforce can be destroyed with no ill effects.

** They didn't model the faces in separately, they probably just slightly altered one model, and had put Nabooru inside the first one for convenience. The Iron Knuckles are not meant to be brainwashed Gerudos, and the remake proves it by removing the Naboorus from the inside. (It's important to remember that they were all Nabooru, and not generic Gerudos.)


*** The grey color could possibly be frostbite.

*** Not trying to disagree with you, but would him being a ghost really affect his color? When Mikau appears as a ghost later, he looks perfectly normal, apart from being transparent. Were they just different kinds of ghosts, or do ghosts just lose their color the longer they remain as ghosts or something?

Added DiffLines:

** This brings up another question too: if it's not the Stone Tower causing the mask to work, then why doesn't Link use the mask help to stop the moon, or in the fight against Skull Kid/Majora? Although I guess by that point you'd have already awakened the giants to hold up the moon for you.

Added DiffLines:

** I'm glad the book was declared non-canon, otherwise I would be very confused as to why Skull Kid would be trying to destroy a world that's in his own head.
