This is my favorite timeline break down. Ive watched this 3 or 4 times now and I just love it. Others rush through and only talk about the games ( most likely for time constraint so people actually watch) but this is just so insightful. I love it. If I could like this each time I watch I would. And I love that it's all information. No jokes, no snarky comments on a game, no hate, no love, no bias, just straight information. Love this so much

I really hope Nintendo retcons all this into separate dimensions. I dream of a new game called "The Legends of Zelda: Infinite Realms" that plays out like "Spider-man: into the Spider-Verse." Each game is/was a single "legend" of Zelda connected by the sacred realm. Link is literally the "link" between realms (since he appears in every game) and must join together with the other incarnations of himself to defeat evil. The story should kick off when Phantom Ganon from OOT breaks the boundary between realms because he was banished in OOT to the " gap between dimensions" when he was defeated. I picture famous items, locations, villains, and dungeons from across all the Zelda games making an appearance in this game with multiple incarnations of Ganon being the final boss (Imagine Ganondorf wearing Majoras Mask!) . Multiple Links, Items, and Zeldas from different realms are needed to defeat him in the end. Tell me this wouldn't be cool. I know this sounds a little like Hyrule Warriors but it needs to be a proper Zelda game.

>After Link fools around a minute or so, Zelda grows impatient and guides Link to the towers Also Link: Fools around for the rest of the game by looting everything and everyone lmao Love the vid, thank you for you hard work!

So much could've been avoided if they just KILLED their villains instead of sealing them away... but then again if they do that then we wouldn't have these awesome games

Way more than 10,000 years. 10,000 just since the last Calamity. The Era of Legend (all the games in and before the 3 timelines) could very well be hundreds of thousands if not millions of years in the distant ancient forgotten past.

What if there is no timeline and the legend of Zelda is just that. A legend told by multiple people of Hyrule to their children about the heroes who fought against evil to save them. The legend would change by whoever is telling it.

Im pretty sure BOTWs placement would be at least 10k years AFTER the timeline converges. It would make the most sense and still be quite interesting because a crap ton of things clearly happened between that time. I would love to see how the fabrics of each timeline intertwined and likely screwed things up for a little bit. Plus the timeline forming a rupy is... just so fitting.

I think that the War of the Ages from Hyrule Warriors should be considered as canon. How else can you explain the Rito being in the same timeline as the Zoras and Gorons? I would place it during the Child or Adult timeline.

Here's something I don't get: Zelda is put under a sleep curse, shatters the triforce of wisdom, is kidnapped by gannon, saved by link six months later link has to find the triforce of courage to awaken zelda? O.o how was she doing stuff in the first zelda if she was supposedly under a sleeping curse?

Due to the fact that BotW has a non-cohesive narrative if you skip major parts to trigger cutscenes, I believe that the Legend of Zelda BoTW is actually just a real legend based on the games in one of the Hyrule Historia Timelines

Brandon 8 måneder siden
"The timeline doesn't matter in Breath of the Wild" is my favorite line in this whole video. It's also why Breath of the Wild is my favorite game in the series - Instead of trying to forcefully tie the games together in a convoluted timeline, BOTW treats the past games as old legends and fairy tales that the people of Hyrule have been telling eachother for centuries. This is why so many locations on the map in that game are named after people and places from earlier games that fans will instantly recognize. It really feels like you're walking through the history of a once prosperous kingdom.

why is the ocarina of time the only place where the timeline splits? Is this just a narrative device to help with the sheer number of zelda games or is there some significant reason ganon was able to win against the hero of time just this once? ( imagining the zelda timeline once one or two more alternate timelines are put in makes my head hurt.)

So Beath of the wild continues after the first so we have a new timeline that may take place at the end of any of the 3 previas, or all 3 or none of the 3 that may just be legends and myths. So question is then what about the possibality for brand new time lines to be branched off in the past? Like what if Link returned to Temina and remained there? Or what if Termina itself plays a role in a future game where Termina and Hyrule enteract? What about Links dream journey? what about maybe his next adventure and what happened next? Could Lowrule be featured again but after the placement of Breath of the wild? What about a fourth timeline in general?
