They’ve held generally the same form since the very beginning of the timeline to the very ends of most, though nearly going extinct in two of the three. With their tribal culture and evolutionary adaptability, the Gorons have a long and very interesting history worth exploring. YouTube’s Dr. Wily recently did a Zelda Theory video on just that, “The Goron HISTORY And EVOLUTION.” He follows the ups and downs of Goron civilization as affected by larger events in the timelines to draw evolutionary conclusions about the race.

How Majora’s Mask leads into Twilight Princess

20131212-082938.jpgA couple of years ago, Nintendo came out with their book Hyrule Historia which included Nintendo’s official Zelda timeline. There has always been controversy, but I have been trying to see how each game’s events and characters lead into the next game in the timeline.
