Do you ever wonder about the life of recurring characters within The Legend of Zelda franchise? What happens to these characters in the space of time that spans each game they are featured in? One of the characters that has been heavily debated about is Malon; more specifically could she actually harbor secret feelings for our hero? What if they have a relationship that extends beyond what we have seen within the games? These questions are the basis of some of the theories that You Tube channel, Dr. Willy discusses in his latest Zelda Theory video. Head past the break and see if you agree with some of his conclusions about the relationship between Link and Malon.

Our green clad hero has seen many trials and tribulations during his life times, he has felt great grief and loss in his many quests to save the people and land that he loves. Would that not change you? Can you really go through all that pain and suffering and not come out a changed individual on the other end? What has happened to our hero as he embarks on his many guests, Is Link really a friend or foe to the Hylian people? Most importantly what happened to the Hylian people without their Hero of Time, what dark secret could our hero really be hiding? These are the types of questions M. Productions has taken on in their latest Zelda Theory video recently uploaded to YouTube. Head past the break if you want to know more!
How do you think Skyward Sword will connect with the rest of the Zelda games in the series? We obviously know that it is a prequel to Ocarina of Time and that it will deal with forging of the Master Sword. What about its connection to later Zelda titles in the Zelda Timeline like Twilight Princess? We’ve seen that the lettering in some of the shots seems to go hand in hand with Twilight Princess, but we really don’t know much at all. Forum member An Hero of Time from over at Zelda Universe has recently created an image speculating on some things he noticed between Skyward Sword and Twilight Princess.
If you click the image to the left, or simply just read on in the story, you can view a larger version of the image. When looking at the first part of the image, I think the bird symbol appearing as the Hero’s Shade’s helmet is nothing worth noting at all. Similarly, the third part of the image comparing the Skyward Sword logo to the body doesn’t seem important to me either. The bird-like mask on the body of the Hero’s Shade does seem to be something unique. I honestly never noticed that at all before and now that I see it, it appears to have a resemblance to the hawkeye item that you get in Twilight Princess. Why would the Hero’s Shade have such a symbol on his body?
Over the years, Zelda theorists alike have attempted to piece together the Legend of Zelda timeline by pulling from an assortment of various sources including the actual games, the game manuals, translations of the Japanese versions of the text, and of course, quotes made by the developer’s of the Zelda games. Often times there are so many developer’s quotes that seemingly contradict one another, and it can be so hard to keep track of them all. Well, here at Zelda Dungeon, we’re trying make things simple for all the enthusiastic Zelda Theorists, as we have created a Developer Timeline Quotes page, highlighting most of the significant quotes made by the game developers in regards to the storyline and timeline.
Each quote listed showcases the main topic it discusses, the actual quote, when it was said, where it was said, a link to the source where you can get the full context of the quote, and a summary and analysis of the meaning of each quote. It really is a comprehensive listing and I surely hope Zelda Theorists out there find it to be quite useful. If you are brand new to the Zelda Theorizing world, such material might seem rather meaningless to you. However, if you do have interest in learning more about the theory world of Zelda, be sure to check out our Zelda Theory Forum over at our message boards.
