Link and the Wind Fish share a dream of Koholint Island in Link’s Awakening. The island was only ever part of their dream, but could Link ever return to Koholint again?
Have you ever had a dream that you wished that you could return to? I know that I have, and I’ve even dreamed the same thing more than once. Dreams are often a weird and tricky topic to discuss, but I think that if we apply the idea of being able to dream the same thing or recall our memories in our dreams that Link could return to Koholint. I don’t think it would be possible for Link to forget his dream with the Wind Fish. How could someone forget such a grand adventure? I could easily see Link wishing that he could return to Koholint Island in another dream now that the nightmares are gone. He could visit Mabe Village again, the beach, and even Marin.
Now, I could see the argument being made that Link couldn’t return to Koholint without the Wind Fish being present. Personally I think that the Wind Fish is still out there, so even if Link did need the Wind Fish to return, he could if he were to find the Wind Fish again. I don’t think the Wind Fish would be needed though, I think that Link could dream of Koholint again on his own.
What do you think? Could Link ever return to Koholint Island? Would Link need the Wind Fish in order to return to Koholint? Let us know in the comments below.
