    Link does talk, it just treats as if when you make a choice, you said it but you don't see the dialogue box, except in the auction house in WW when you place a bid

    At what point between Ocarina of Time and Wind Waker did the world become cartoony? How did it happen?

    Link is not just magically musically gifted. He doesn't just pick instruments up and know how to play them. In the first game, he only knows one simple melody for the flute. In LttP, he doesn't know how to play until you meet the flute kid, who teaches him. In Ocarina of Time, he has to be taught every song in that game from someone, with the exception of the Sun's Song and that's only three notes. By the time you find that, Link easily could have learned enough about music from the other songs that he was taught to figure out those three notes. In Link's Awakening there are a lot of instruments but the only one he knew how to play was the Ocarina and, again, all the songs he knew were taught to him. As for the magical instruments, he didn't play those, they played themselves and, for another thing, that was a dream, so anything he does in that game is possible.

    Link lives in a world that is clearly not as technologically advanced as our own. At the very least, they haven't hit their industrial age. It's more akin to a simple 1800s lifestyle and, in the 1800s, glass bottles WERE very rare and valuable items. The fact that Link only manages to find 4 of them just laying around in that world makes way more sense than if they were everywhere.
  • The Doctor - April 26, 2013 1:09 p.m.

    Link does talk to people, you just don't hear it. Think about it... "Hello, what is you name?" "..." "Link? That's a very nice name, Link!"
  • The Doctor - April 26, 2013 1:13 p.m.

    Also, your complaint about Twilight Princess isn't true. They actually SHOW Link talking in that game from a distance. His mouth is moving and he's even gesturing with his hands as he tells his story. Again, you just don't hear it.
  • The Doctor - April 26, 2013 1:14 p.m.

    I meant SS, not Twilight Princess.

    About the items: Dimensional Pocket. Here's a link for references,

    I am going to be honest. I have always been negative on this site's discussions. But this article was interesting. I will say in the LOZ cartoon from the 80s arrows appeared as an energy beam or in later episodes the items just appeared in Zelda or Link's hands. Maybe that is too simple of an explanation, but maybe Link can carry stuff and have it appear or disappear when needed. Bethesda could explain Skyrim the same way since it is fantasy, but not Fallout 3 or New Vegas since it is post apocalyptic sci-fi. Also just why were talking about my favorite games from Bethesda, how do the maintenance people retrieve the PIp-Boys from corpses in the Fallout universe?A character says it is hard to do in Fallout 3, but leaves the explanation to the gamer's own imagination. Plus you can totally replace your Pip-Boy to a blingin version in New Vegas. So somebody figured out in the game, but once again no clear thought on how it is done is given. Sorry to be TL;DR but just pondering.Thanks for your time.

    i've been wondering, how many adventurers are in this universe? i've only seen a couple others mainly that group from twilight princess. why are there so few? why are the guards so pathetic and only get in your way? can i skip dungeons with skulltulas... the first dungeon is always the hardest for me because those creep me the hell out, giant detailed aggressive spiders that are armored and can block you attacks. bleh! it takes me 3 days to clear the first dungeon every time because i take breaks to cool down from dealing with em, oh my gosh i pity the cursed dude, though he's not as scary as the real deals but he can't escape him self. if we lived in the zelda universe honestly how far do you guys think you'd make it? i'd be stuck on the first dungeon if it was a requirement. meh the boomerang aint all that great, the hook beetle is awesome though... AH! gross gross gross those spider bombs!
  • g1rldraco7 - March 10, 2013 9:38 a.m.

    Main question how does every Link you control have the bloodline of the hero of time if Link doesn't have a kid?
  • The Doctor - April 26, 2013 1:11 p.m.

    Because he's not a person. He's the living personification of the triforce of courage. He doesn't need to have kids because it's technically always the same guy.

    "Outside of magical intervention--something Wind Waker never hints at--how did an underwater race become a family of flyers so quickly?" Nicely ignoring the quest you have to go through to get one of Valoos scales so Prince Komali can grow his wings. Which, granted, doesn't completely answer all questions, but certainly provides enough to go on. I'd assume the scale has some sort of magic/reaction to their race that causes wings, and considering you can go back nearer the end of the game and Komali's grown complete usable wings i'd say that the whole race fully evolving over the course of a few hundred years seems reasonably plausible. My bigger question would be something only touched on here, surely it'd be more advantageous to remain as Zoras, but when you think about it it'd be quite easy to get lost when traversing the ocean without any form of map or guidance. Flying would probably be better in that regard.
  • C.King - March 10, 2013 10:53 a.m.

    since they evolved i've been wondering if they're shy or what ever looking for the less common terrain to seclude themselves, i got no clue it a pure guess
  • The Doctor - April 26, 2013 1:32 p.m.

    Yeah, the much better question would be, why did a race of water dwelling creatures evolve into birds when the world got flooded? That kind of goes against everything we know about evolution.
  • oj_sarraj - March 8, 2013 3:36 a.m.

    1- maybe there is a scared hidden temple where each Goron have to take part of his rocky body and toss it to reproduce 2- i don't think Heart pieces exists in Zelda universe its just for us gamers 3- when he was locked in the temple of time there was the Hero suit along with the accessories in a box but we never saw that due to Nintendo 64 capabilities 4- Nintendo haven't found the right voice yet 5- there are spirits living in them we haven't heard that side of the story yet 6- past games and art work 7- his pouch is liked to the temple of time every thing he store in his pouch transfers there 8- they are not rare, link is on a quest to help the princess, who think of a bottles? his focus is on weapons 9- i guess so 10-again due to Nintendo 64 power capabilities 11-every legend has its own link this one happen to have a pink hair :) 12-forests 13-they believe in sacrifices a lot 14-died during child birth 15-hes the chosen one for a reason don't you think 16-each by its same color i guess (to us gamers at least) 17-who questions evolution seriously 18-hes Japanese :) 19-through the magic of wings 20-apparently he kept holding that piece of wood with little bit of luck or god is watching over him
  • rainn'sgaydar - March 7, 2013 1:07 p.m.

    The one that always got me was the Song of Storms in OoT. You learn the song as adult Link because the windmill man hates it because some kid (Link) played it 7 years before you learn it. Then you go back in time and play the song you learned in the future. Really boils down to a time travel paradox, but it was like the windmill man predicted the past in the future.
  • Datadog - March 7, 2013 9:43 a.m.

    Those iron boots always confounded me. How can they only be heavy when Link's wearing them? Simply having them in your inventory should be enough to make you sink.
  • JarkayColt - March 7, 2013 3:12 a.m.

    Wow, I never thought about the ending to Awakening like that. That's pretty...grim. Also, I did wonder about why the Zora evolved, what with all that water. Since the Gorons still manage to survive into Spirit Tracks, then the "born from the earth" theory does have a bit of credibility. As mentioned below, it's been suggested Termina is an interdimensional counterpart to Hyrule. To kill two birds with one stone, some people think this also explains Tingle, who may be Link's counterpart in this dimension. Now a wall-o-text-o-questions I've always wanted answering: Something I've always wondered about Majora's Mask is how certain events don't 'revert' when rewinding time. I understand that certain items held about Link's person could come back with him, but then, why does he lose all his items that have a quantity, but keep all the unique ones (e.g. masks)? Also, how come the characters that he heals remain dead, even though they were alive on the Dawn of the First Day? How can he call Epona at will each time when she was originally taken in to Romani's Ranch, (which is sealed behind a boulder), before the Dawn of the First Day? How can the banker recognise him and take money from his account, when Link wasn't a customer before the Dawn of the First Day? The "marking" explanation doesn't suffice, since Link's account should always be empty when he goes back in time anyway. There's a lot more I could say about MM but basically, IT MAKES NO SENSE. Also on the topic of Rupees; how is it that, despite most of them being the same size (excluding "giant" 200 & 100 Rupees), your wallet is too full for a Red, but can easily accomodate a Blue? In other words, you wouldn't have used any less space if you were carrying either 100 Green Rupees, or 100 Purple Rupees. That doesn't make a lot of sense, either. Additionally, how exactly does a Rupoor cause you to lose money? If it somehow had a negative value, wouldn't you just, y'know, drop it? :/ If MM takes place directly after Ocarina of Time, how is it that he can suddenly ride young Epona, as well as suddenly becoming an acrobat able to flip through the air? Also, how did he manage to forget all the Ocarina songs, exactly? In Spirit Tracks, how the actual hell is Niko still alive? Also, how come the entire intermediate generation seems to be missing? (e,g. Link/Zelda/Linebeck's parents (as opposed to grandparents). How do the fish in The Wind Waker manage to draw ANYTHING on your Sea Chart? They just leap at it with a brush, while Link holds it towards him. There's no way anything but a rip or a soggy patch is getting on that thing. I could go on, but, y'know...magic?
