    It might be 'cause I didn't play Twilight Princess more than once, but I don't understand what's being said :x Is that dude that teaches you new weapon tricks (the pic up there) supposed to be an old Link then?

    This timeline info doesn't seem very concrete to me personally :x It feels like someone just tried to connect elements they thought could be connected, not that were intended to be connected.

    This isn't really "proof", in fact the creator of the original topic is over reaching. It has been long debated that OoT Link is the Hero of Time but it didn't prove he was the Hero's Shade. And with SS, many have begone to suspect that he is the Hero's Shade. This article says doesn't have any new information, he's just saying the "the Hyrule Historia says it OoT Link" when in fact it doesn't. It's nothing more information manipulation, the reader figures hes not lying since he gave proof without even checking if it makes sense. Nothing from the passage he quoted says which link is the Hero's Shade.

    I dont understand... TP is in the Child era timeline, which means, Ganondorf is stopped from the beginning and the hero of time disappears in Majora's Mask. This contradicts this theory.

    Well, there IS proof, actually.
    1. The Hero's Shade looks like a Stalfos.
    2. Hylians who go into the Lost Woods become a Stalfos.
    3. Link wasn't exactly a child in Majora's Mask. He was much older, as seen when the Kokiri Sword he wielded was much smaller than it used to be. It was a wimpy knife compared to how the sword was in Ocarina of Time.
    4. In Majora's Mask, Link goes into the Lost Woods to find Navi.
    5. It's not known whether or not Link ever made it back to Kokiri Forest.
    From this, we can assume that Link probably fell victim to the woods' dark magic.

    No, that's not what they mean.

    They mean Link survives and exists for any period of time after the game ends.

    I hope you guys see why I absolutely refuse to accept that there is a timeline in the Zelda series.

    I hope you see why having no timeline in the Zelda series makes absolutely no sense.

    I'm petty sure this, or something like it, has been a fan theory for quite some time..

    How would it not make sense? Even when shit is being proved by Nintendo, people are still stupid and debate over it and say "nope, they're wrong".

    The way that I've always taken the Zelda games, the way that I'll always continue to take the Zelda games, is that each installment is it's own story. They don't connect to each other. There's no overall story to the land of Hyrule. Each game is just different. Not everything needs a timeline.

    So lets fabricate one then.

    Listen, these games were NOT created with any overarching story. no way. If fans enjoy Nintendo coming with a bit of back story now, great, but they didn't have this in mind all along.... and to my mind, it adds nothing whatsoever to the games anyway, I've played pretty much every Zelda game but I wouldn't say the story is important or even that good in the series. It does a job but nothing more.

    This makes as much sense as trying to tie the Final Fantasy games together.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Final Fantasy games were never intended to be the same universe. I think that fact was even mentioned in Dissidia (I haven't played the game in a long time, don't quote me on that). The different Zelda games have always mentioned one another, Final Fantasy doesn't.

    The most of what I been seeing is debate about explaining the timeline, not denying it. This thread is only confirming a theory of small details.
    Thinking about them as their own game, thinking they didn't need to connect or/and that the timeline doesn't do anything for you,(which all that is fine) doesn't mean there isn't connections and a timeline.
