    "In what hand does Zelda weild the Master Sword?"

    And he answers that she doesn't which is bullshit. She's held a baton in Twilight Princess and a sword in Spirit Tracks. Both times she held the Swords right handed. However specifically in the Wind Waker she holds the master sword with both hands. Both hands is the correct answer.

    I can't believe they let some fake fan have an interview with Reggie, if he isn't embarrassed I'm embarrassed for him.

    NERD.

    No, but really, I've played a chunk of Zelda games, mostly the classic ones. I'd consider myself a fan of the series. There's a difference between being a fan and knowing stuff down to the little details. Not to mention the guy is in front of Reggie, and that'll rattle anyone up good.

    was this a joke post? if so im sorry

    Hold on, "wield" means intending to use it personally in-battle. It's been a long time since I played Wind Waker, but does she actually make an attempt on Ganon with the Master Sword herself, or does she just pick it up to give it to Link?

    I'm pretty sure the question was just to try and trip him up on Link/Zelda, kind of like the question "How many of each animal did Moses put on the ark?" (Answer: None, Noah built the ark and filled it with two of each animal)

    Most fans would probably say she doesn't, but a fanatic probably would have known.

    But shouldn't a fan be expected to know the little details like how Sonic's arms are not blue and Mario's last name is Mario (debatable if that's canon.)

    Point being he should of answered the question as it was presented and not diverted from it. It's cool if he likes the games but I wouldn't say he's a fan.

    Doesn't liking something make you a fan by definition?

    Zelda doesn't appear in Phantom Hourglass, Tetra does. And if a normal sword doesn't qualify as the master sword, then a baton certainly doesn't.

    No, being knowledgeable about what your supposedly passionate about makes you a fan.

    And your right. The game was Spirit Tracks, she possesses a dark nut which weilds a sword.

    I'll just leave this here.

    I don't see the requirement to be knowledgeable about it. (But that's just my two cents)

    Do you routinely enjoy works from a given genre, style, franchise or artist?
    Will hearing of a new work in or from one of said same cause you to investigate it? Alternatively would you say you enjoyed the work(s) you have experienced, possibly enough to recall key themes and elements.

    If yes to both then congratulations you are a fan of something. It is not a high barrier to entry.

    Describe an average Zelda game. The hero discovers they are the one to save the land, and princess too for that matter, and via a series of dungeons and bosses they face the big bad and save the day.

    What hand does a character wield a sword in? Acceptable answers includes who gives a fuck?
    Those versed in series minutia have their uses, and indeed I would even say they can still do general fluff piece interviews just fine as well, but it is hardly a requirement for such a thing.

    I'm going to be frank - who gives a shit? Just because you're a fan of something doesn't mean you have to know everything there ever is to know about that thing.

    Actually she possesses a phantom.
    A Dark nut are the black armoured warriors in Twilight princess.

    "I can't believe they let some fake fan making a topic about this, if he isn't embarrassed I'm embarrassed for him."

    ;)

    What I really trying to say to you is:
    It doesn't matter.
    To much drama for a nothing.

    Actually, the fan was correct.

    She held the Master Sword in Wind Waker, but she never did wield it. She was giving it to Link. Wielding means holding and actually use the weapon.

    And if you want to go with specifics (since yes, you did nitpick a bit)
    A baton isn't a Master Sword.
    A Sword in Spirit Tracks, well, there was no master sword in that game.

    All of these, not only makes the question actually valid but also the answer correct.

    And who gives a rat's ass on whether he got it or wrong for something that specific?
    What Reggie wanted to know is that he didn't confuse Link with Zelda.

    A fan is devoted into loving the franchise and knowing at least the very common things about said franchise. That doesn't mean he needs to know every intricate details.

    Should I know how many enemies and which types there are at the 42nd floor of the Cave of Ordeals in Twilight Princess? Come on Bruh.

    EDIT: FYI, she didn't posssed a Darknut, she possesed a Phantom.
    By your definition, for making such a misshap, should you not be a fan?
