Why is Zelda such a sweet cutie and why doesn't Link make her dreams come true by impregnating her with his children?
Link strikes me as someone who'd get extremely pissed at even the thought of someone else touching Zelda. Like, you can't even get him mad about anything else, but this one thing he will fucking kill over.
I think it depends on which link and zelda.
Like SSlink and zelda definitely did it but MMlink and zelda didn't
>not shipping Link and Zelda
His other options are:
A fish: Ruto
An angry desert woman (that's is probably directly related to Ganondorf): Nabooru
A strange computer program or something: Fi
A goddess of an alternate realm that doesn't care about Hyrule really: Midna
A chick that never grows past the age of 11 or 12: Saria
Guy doesn't really have many options y'know
Did he get together with Zelda before becoming the Hero's Shade?
I doubt it. Hero's Shade tells Link they're off the same bloodline, but he never mentions that bloodline having other living members. And there really wasn't much romancing in OoT to begin with. It seems more like Zelda kept her royal bloodline going, and Link kept his hero bloodline going. They never joined.
>incest: the thread
it's like you fags want more mongoloid little shits roaming planet earth
>wearing shoes in bed
Do Link and Zelda still wear them even when having sex in the missionary position for the purpose of procreation?
>Forgetting Wind Waker
>Forgetting Spirit Tracks
Minish Cap because it played the Childhood Friend Romance trope between Link and Zelda first
Does Adventure of Link count?
Well, he sure didn't fug the fish. I think that would have been fairly obvious. And since all the sages stayed that way until TP, there aren't many left. It's quite possible.
Then again, who's to say he didn't wander around the world after defeating Ganondorf? He could have picked up some girl when he was actually of adult age, as opposed to sticking with his childhood milk merchant.
Yes and Zelda does not reincarnate, every female of the royal family is name Zelda.
Link's spirit reincarnates on a different body to fuck his grand grand daughter every hundreds years or fucks another girl if he subconsciously got tired of blond pussy (OoT, TP)
I think Spirit Tracks depends on if you decide Link should become a Knight.
Personally, being an Engineer fits better for him, and Zelda can always catch a ride if they want to spend time together.
Wasn't aware of that. It's just speculation, but it seems fitting enough. If Link would have left Hyrule, what's to say his descendant would have made his way back before he was needed? Especially since TP doesn't start with Link at the end of a journey, but rather as a villager in a small settlement. I don't remember what they say about him, though; did they mention anything about him being a recent addition to the village?
>who's to say he didn't wander around the world after defeating Ganondorf?
About that, I wasn't sure what to make of Majora's Masks' ending. Did Link decide to stop looking for Navi and head back to Hyrule or keep looking for her to have a proper farewell?
As far as I can tell, Navi left Link after their quest was done. Link chased after her, was somehow transported to Termina, saved it, and there's where the theories set in. Seeing as the themes of MM seem to be about loss, I wouldn't be surprised if it was just Link coming to term with being left alone. And then, most likely, sticking around Hyrule / venturing out in the world, and eventually settled down. But fuck if I know.
They're brother and sister you sick fuck
SS Zelda is probably the sweetest character in the entire franchise.
Not best girl tho.
>tfw you'll never be cutie skyward sword zelda
>tfw you'll never be skyward sword zelda and be utterly extremely pregnant
If anyone is to plunder dat ass, it's him.
>not brown enough
>you will never ntr zelda with sheik
I'm not sure that was the case, though. If I remember correctly, the regret of Hero's Shade was that he was unable to pass on his skills. Possibly because the next hero had yet to be born, what with the cycle and all. There just wasn't anyone skilled enough, not even in his own bloodline, to learn all he could teach. So he died with a regret, and stayed around as a ghost to wait for the next hero.
>Fi just says I'll have a hard time explaining this to Zelda or something like that
>It's never brought up ever again
I have feeling she never learned what happen to Link, and just waited for him to come back for the rest of her life.
Hero's Shade explicitly states that he and Link are of the same bloodline. The royal Hyrule bloodline has always been a thing in 3D Zelda, so when it's not mentioned, I just assume it's not involved. Of course, we can't know anything, since we're not the designers, but for Zelda and Link to be lost siblings... it's pretty damn far-fetched, in my opinion. Since it's not mentioned anywhere. And while they could potentially be descendants from the same bloodline... I don't know, again I feel like they'd have mentioned it.
The real reason why they went with TP link isn'tead of SS Link for smash 4.
I'm just playing Devil's Advocate because I can't recall any concrete evidence that they're *not* of the same bloodline. I vaguely recall something about a Knight Bloodline, which may be the Hero's Bloodline you're referring to. But like I said, it doesn't necessarily rule out anything.
Has Anouma cleared this up at all? I know Hyrule Hystoria confirmed a number of things.
>impa's rise in prominence in story is nintendo's way of playing to the lesbian crowd
Every time I see SS Impa I feel like she'd snap in half as if she were a brown skinned stick man.
Hyrule Warriors Impa, on the other hand...
Honestly, I don't bother going beyond the games themselves. I just play them and enjoy them for what they are; the timeline and attempts at a consistent lore aren't that important to me.
Usually stuff gets cleared up in the story. Hell, SS had to write out that Impa was Impa, even though I think most people knew that half-way through the game. So if they leave it out, that's usually a closed case for me. Unless they leaves clear hints, like the grave in TP.
Pretty convenient that the next hero was in his bloodline then.
The time period between MM and TP was around 100 years, right? How much time would have passed between his death and TP Link being born?
I like both, and OOT Impa.
Oracles is ok.
Others are take or leave.
I generally hold the same views as you, but Hyrule Historia did clear up the relationship between the Hero of Time and the Hero's Shade, so there's that.
So you think the Hero's Shade never got involved in the royal bloodline?
To be fair at least a thousand years have passed since OoT and TP such that even if Time and Zelda hooked up the Zelda and Link of TP would have had enough genetic drift to be total strangers. I mean we're all related, technically.
Because if SS is the first in the timeline, then Hyrule's royal family is the original hero bloodline.
Link DOESN'T has a single bloodline, just in this case it happened to coincide.
OP, he does. Where do you think the next generations of Link always comes from?
"Link, the descendent of the Hero of Time: [...] The spirit of Link's ancestor, the Hero of Time, teaches him his secrets. Ever since returning to the Child Era, the swordsman has lamented the fact that he was not remembered as a hero. This is the reason he passes down the proof of his courage and his secret techniques to the Link of this era, addressing him as "son"."
Maybe Link was sad he wasn't remembered for the things he did as a Knight?
Wouldn't the Hero's Shade being part of the knightline, and buried beneath the graveyard be counter-evidence for the prospect of him being Hero of Time Link? Knights are forbidden from wedding, which is a good point brought up tangentially by >>276962001. Seems to me that ST Zelda asked what Link's ambitions were to determine if they might be together someday. The engineer option obviously being the correct choice, as that's the one that leads to the happiest ending.
HH contradicts itself, claiming the identity of Hero's Shade as HoT to be fact, yet simultaneously theory on another page. Not a trustworthy source.
It's hard to say. There are only a few games that hint about a romantic relationship between Zelda and Link. Among the 3D games it's really just SS. Until the writers have said theirs, there's no way to know, but it doesn't seem likely.
Maybe the Hero's Shade was able to influence, directly or indirectly, who would be the next hero. His skills wasn't unique to the hero, after all, but to their common bloodline. Or maybe it really was a huge coincidence.
>the swordsman has lamented the fact that he was not remembered as a hero
That's weird, didn't the game say something different? That is, that he regretted not being able to pass on his skills? I'm pretty sure I remember something like that.
That seems a bit doubtful, else they'd hero worship Link far more and remember him enough that he wouldn't have been filled with such regret as the Hero's Shade.
Like, remember Link Between Worlds? That showed LttP Link got loved big-time. OoT Link came back in time and Zelda didn't know much of him and his future-time shenanigans never happened, he might have even been returned to the past so far that he hadn't done his small-time heroics even.
That is correct. Since going back to the Child Timeline, he felt regret because he basically saved two worlds and neither really remembered him
because of either time travel or one not even existing in the normal dimension.
That's also another reason, yes.
Not really the case, The Hero's shade is the manifestation of Link's regrets but no exactly the spirit of Link.
It's like Ganondorf being the incarnation of Demise hatred but not the reincarnation of Demise.
>Knights are forbidden from wedding
You got a source on this? And why are you applying real life to a video game? Sounds like you want your particular fanfiction to be the actual canon.
Each reincarnation of Link has the blood of a knight, link doesn't reincarnates randomly.
And thinking about it how did OoT Link get to know there is a cycle of heroes?
Is it stated in any Zelda game that Knights are forbidden from wedding anyone in the Royal Family?
Link being a Knight would have him closer to Zelda considering the ending where he's training in the courtyard and Zelda can still interact with him.
Choosing Engineer makes the possibility of them getting together to more of a maybe than becoming a Warrior, but I personally prefer that.
That reminds me, from what we've seen in Zelda U, when could it take place?
To be fair he'd be remembered in TP world as a king, not a Hero. TP is the timeline where he came back as a child. And in Zelda games your royal family is pretty much just limited to Zelda. The regal history of Hyrule, especially from a millennia ago, probably would never,be brought up, if even remembered.
1) Link is sexy as fuck
2) Hyrule is goddamn tiny
I'm pretty sure he HAS knocked up every bitch in Hyrule.
I can't accept that, I never thought of Link to give a fuck about glory considering he spent who knows HOW many cycles depending on the player helping and saving everyone in Termina.
Maybe it's the manga's fault for giving Link standard shonen protagonist character traits and me being used to that considering he's a wooden plank in both games, but I can't see him caring about that shit.
Uh yes, but the timeline split causes him to be remembered differently. In WW he's the big shot hero because that's the timeline he left at the end of OoT. The child timeline that he returns to wouldn't know him as a hero since he stops all of that from happening. He has no claim to fame in the TP world.
I actually don't remember that. I do know that he seemed to know "someone" has stolen his daughter's heart, and he's pissed, but then he says something along the line of "But if it was you Link, it'd be different!" or something.
>And thinking about it how did OoT Link get to know there is a cycle of heroes?
Didn't he just live long enough? He seems pretty knowledgeable and wise. And if he's been around since OoT, I bet he picked up a few things. He travels all over the place in TP, after all.
WW timeline rules mean noting, there was no spirit of the hero an WW earned the title and te cycle began anew.
Everyone is a reincarnation of the hero before SS and in WW timeline is they are a reincarnation of WW Link.
>I never thought of Link to give a fuck about glory
Well, that's just your headcanon. Personally, I find it very believable that he would be just a little agitated from saving TWO (technically three) worlds and not getting any recognition for it. Imagine all of that, then going back to a normal life probably free of war and suffering. I'm surprised The Hero of Time could even readjust to society.
>Maybe it's the manga's fault
Never read the manga, is it good?
Also isn't he the only Link which his quest involves knowing the royal family secrets to keep advancing?
By the end of OoT he knew as much as the main circle of the royal family.
Yes. HH is full of errata. It does say he regretted not being able to find a protoge.
No. Actually I was thinking of Jedi. Still, the Hero's Shade would be a king if he had married Zelda. A king wouldn't be entombed in a nameless grave beneath a tree surrounded by lowly guards.
It has some positives, like Link having a personality and some more screen time with Zelda, but overall it's a pretty shit adaption.
It's still worth checking out though, it's short as hell.
Well fuck that thing, then. I thought the timeline was a stupid idea in the first place, I'm not having them retconning my games. I'll just play them for what they are instead.
He's got his own, huge grave in the royal cemetery right next to the princess that has a ghost guard. Meaning he was such a significant figure that his grave is guarded even after all the original guards died. That's devotion fit for a king.
After reading the red pill; I'm 100% sure Zelda has fucked Ganondorfs thick cock at some point
Think about it
The timeline isn't a stupid idea, and Hyrule Historia does have some good things revealed in it, but it's pretty clear that i was made just to get people to shut up about the Timeline and it wasn't planned at all.
The thing with the regret is pretty inconsistent.
>TP said he couldn't pass down his swordplay and was worried for the next hero
>HH said he regretted not being remembered for his deeds
>Get back in time
>Can't go back home
>Go see brother Darunia
>Nigga doesn't know me
>Go see my "fiancée" Ruto
>Bitch doesn't know me
>Zelda is still a stranger to me
>Go find Navi, she is the only thing I have left
>Get back to Hyrule and become a knight
>Not a single nigga can learn how to use a sword
>If no one can learn to fight the future is doomed
>I must find a way to train the next nigga that will come after me
>it wasn't planned at all
That's what makes it a stupid idea in my eyes. Either say "there's no timeline, make up your own theories", or lay one down from the get-go. Don't awkwardly shove one in 25 years down the line.
The thing is the timeline was planned from the beginning, go back to see interviews with Shiggy, the thing is Anuma fucked up the whole thing when he made TWO sequels to the same game.
>Link never had any descendents because after he was ingested by a Like-Like once he loved it so much he spent the rest of his life hunting them and letting them devour him
Wonder what timeline would be created by this.
>Get back in time
>Can't go back home
Wasn't it clear that Link couldn't go back to the Kokiri after he left?
>Go see brother Darunia
>Nigga doesn't know me
While that's sad, who's to say they can't still become brothers again?
>Go see my "fiancée" Ruto
>Bitch doesn't know me
No loss there.
>Zelda is still a stranger to me
Majora's Mask pretty much said Zelda and Link were close before he left to find Navi with her appearing in that flashback.
>tfw it feels like Nintendo is actively avoiding featuring the gerudo for whatever reason
Nobody cares about bokoblins. They are pathetic and have a shitty generic design. I want to battle against Ganondorf's armies of amazonian desert women. Stop insisting on boring me to death.
To be fair, it seems like Ruto falling into the fish would've happened regardless of Ganon being banished or whatever happened to him.
She just fell in one day while feeding him.
>Either say "there's no timeline, make up your own theories"
That was the problem, everyone was making up their won timelines to try to put all the games together because they thought they all absolutely had to be connected together and Nintendo got sick of it.
No no, all wrong.
There WAS an actual timeline in place since the beginning - Miyamoto confirmed it way back
or he was bullshitting, who knows. It's just that Anouma clearly gives no fucks about the timeline and Hyrule Historia had to awkwardly fit everything together.
You don't die from Like-Likes, they just strip you naked and molest your bare body.
He couldn't go back AS a Kokori. Because he's Hylian. You can go back into the Forest in OoT but no one except for Mido and Saria recognize him. Since he knows his way around the forest, he'd never get lost either like other Hylians.
I guess accepting defeat, even after painting yourself into a corner, isn't the Japanese way. I just don't like the idea that "everything has to make sense somehow", when clearly it doesn't. The book contradicting itself should have been the sign that it just wasn't going to work.
Mfw the ambition of the Hero's Shade in finding a protoge is at variance with the thesis that he is the Hero of Time; because he would know that a new Hero of Time wouldn't reincarnate, because he is he. Unless one is to suggest the notion that TP Link is not OoT Link reincarnated. In which case he does not bear the Hero's Spirit of which there is only one shared. Even if there could be more than one Hero's Spirit we run into this problem.
1. If HS = OoT Link; then TP Link = New Link
2. If the above statement is correct: TP Link x Midna, because HS x OoT Zelda.
3. Meaning if HS x OoT Zelda then she, who is reincarnated in TP Zelda, has no significant other in TP.
Every theoretical possibility debunks HS/OoT Link
You were already proven wrong once in the thread with your retarded marriage comment, but
>because he would know that a new Hero of Time wouldn't reincarnate,
There's nothing implying he wants to teach his skills to another person with the Hero's Spirit. He just wanted to pass his skills down to anyone competent enough to learn them, but apparently such techniques are so complex he couldn't find an apprentice.
Which is silly, because those techniques aren't difficult to pull off for a trained swordsman at all.
Would she be attracted or fall in love with Link?
As long as it lasts the game out, yeah. Or a game series with clear prequels / sequels, even. You know, unlike Mass Effect. The Zelda games don't really line up like that, though, so I don't care if TP has a completely different world to TWW - despite being the chronological sequel.
I never find myself thinking "What would Link do next?", since every game is its own adventure. So for me, they might as well have left the timeline theories alone. It won't exactly hurt their sales, and people are still making theories about it, despite having the official explanation. Mostly because that explanation isn't very coherent.
TP even says "countless tales are told" of the Hero too. Of which there is only one ever referenced in third-person, including by the Hero's Shade.
I don't care WHAT the HH says about the Hero's Shade's motives. They can say he is an aggregate afterimage of all past Link's lives if they want and it can be canon. However there is not way on God's green earth I am going to believe that HS = OoT Link for stated reason.
Personally, I like it when everything ties together. It makes a universe feel more real and alive, if you know what I mean. Like, knowing X years ago something happened which influenced modern day events, or how the events we play out now will irreversibly change the course of the future. Stuff like that is real neato, especially when there are callbacks and stuff. A good example of what I'm talking about is Tolkien's stuff, where the universe exists far beyond (and behind) the Ring trilogy. It definitely immerses you in the universe and makes it fun to connect all the dots together. I'd wager I'm not alone in this either, as Star Wars is another franchise with a fanbase dedicated to exploring its rich history.
That said, I do agree that when it's done poorly, like when Anouma took over the Zelda franchise, that it's unnecessary.
Would anyone on /v/ want a Zelda anime if it adapted every game perfectly and even fixed some things regarding plot?
He's literally a one man army who radiates an aura of justice and heroism. He's the greatest swordsman who ever lived and beats the shit out of gods as a child. He's the god damn Hero of Time, he makes pussies wet just by entering a room.
