sorry to everyone, this is in french, however, i'll resume the main point of this video. The guy here share a theory where the Link we see in BOTW is the one who got defeated by Ganon in Ocarina of time. In short, Ganondorf defeated Link, took the triforce of courage and wisdom, and had an immense power. The sages still managed tyo seal Ganondorf away. Then, the sages, who knew the seal wouldnt last forever, decided to preserve Link's body for future uses when Ganondorf would be freed. Notice that the first place shown in the game is the Chamber of resurection. So this game is in the Fallen Hero Timeline. Ganondorf having the whole triforce, sages knew that it was matter of time before he destroy the seal to free himself. Link being the only one who can really stop Ganon, they knew they had to preserve his body, otherwise, there wouldnt have any Link descending. LINK WITH OCARINA OF TIME : Temple of time is the same in BOTW and OOT Fountain near the Temple that was at the center of Hyrule city Description of the Sheika Tablet : A mysterious tablet with a glowing center. You've never seen this device before, and yet... there's something familiar about it. Means he might have know something in the past about sheikas Ganon appearance : same eyes, same horns same shape Gerudo appear in the game (exterminated in child timeline) Deku Tree, he says, you don't recognize me? Of course we dont, since he still was a sprout when we first met him (OoT) WHAT HAPPENS IN THIS NEW ZELDA : Ganondorf broke the seal and destroyed the new city of Hyrule The Zelda in BOTW is very different from the one in OoT, meaning she probably hasn't been preserved like Link The old man we saw few time (5:58) is probably the King of Hyrule, father of Zelda. Could be the Red boat from WW, but an alternate version (alternate reality) MASTER SWORD AND ITS LINK WITH GAMES : Zelda probably retrieved the Master Sword after Link got defeated and brought it to one of the last barrier against the darkness : Kokiri Forest. The reason why the Temple of time is destroyed in BOTW is because Ganondorf wanted to destroy the Master Sword, the first place he though where it could be was it. Remember that after the death of Deku Tree, the forest got invaded by monster. But now that a new Deku Tree was born, Princess Zelda brought the MAster Sword so it could protect it from Ganondorf. Notice that the Master Sword in BOTW is rusty. The reason is because it is no longer protected from aging like when it was in Temple of Time. In Twilight Princess, it wasnt rusty, but it still got the benefit of the Temple of Time even if it got destroyed. For the Wind Waker Timeline, the castle of Hyrule got destroyed, so it might have been rebuilt over the ruin of the Temple of time. It would also explain why we retrieve the Master Sword in the Lost Wood in A Link to the Past and A Link Between World CREATURE AND THEIR EVOLUTION : Kokiri adapted themselves in Wind Waker and became Korok because of the vast ocean flooding Hyrule. So why are there Korok in BOTW? The reason is that maybe because Ganondorf is slaying all Hylian, they decided to turn back to their original form (Korok) to hide from him. SHEIKAS ROLE IN THE GAME : WARNING : THIS IS PURELY THEORIC!!! Sheikas might be ennemies of Link in this game. Why? We see Link fighting one in the trailer (12:40) Also, in one of the first trailer, we see a Sheikas eye droping a tear, which transform into blood and pictures of war. We also know that the main force of Ganondorf, the Gerudos, allied with Hyrule Forces. So Ganondorf is left without an army He might have took the Mirror of Twilight and released the Twili, aka the remaining and banished Sheikas. They allied with Ganondorf in order to get their revenge against Hyrule. So, what are your though about this theory?
