    Default Zelda Timeline Discussion Thread!

    Now, based on each game's story, I have devised a POSSIBLE order of events for the Legend of Zelda timeline.

    Here it is.

    The Legend of Zelda
    The Legend of Zelda 2:Link's Adventure
    The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (which really had nothing to do with the past.)
    The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening/DX
    The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
    The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
    The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages/Seasons
    The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap
    The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords
    The Legend of Zelda-The Wind Waker

    We can infer that TLoZ and TLoZ2:LA are first because TLoZ was Link's first appearance, and then Link's Adventure took place just after. A Link to the Past came next because of Vaati's appearance, and it must have come before Ocarina of Time because the Temple of Time had not existed. Next will be Link's Awakening/DX, due to the fact that Link had been traveling to a certain location overseas, when his ship crashed. Perhaps the Oracle games came before, and that Link possibly could have been returning to Hyrule from Holodrum or Labrynna, or traveling between Holodrum and Labrynna? We'll see once we get to the Oracle games' spot. However, let's continue to Ocarina of Time. It may have come next, as it seems Link has a strong connection to the princess, as seen by earlier games. We can also infer that it is next, as Ganon returns. Majora's Mask came next, based on the fact that you got Epona in OoT, and Epona is still your sidekick in Majora's Mask. You also get your Ocarina back, from OoT. Now, the Oracles. These had to have come next, because in the opening FMV, Link is riding Epona to the temple of the Triforce. The Minish Cap came next, because Vaati appears a second time. Four Swords came AFTER Minish Cap, because the Four Sword was first created in Minish Cap. Last is Wind Waker, because in the opening story, it says that all knowledge of Hyrule was lost.

    Now, there's a possibility that OoT came first, based on how the new Maku Tree tells Link that his Hylian mother brought him as a baby to the Kokiri Forest to escape the fires of war before she died.

    Agree? Disagree? Think I'm wrong? Elaborate.

    I thought all were alternate times with different Links and Zelda's (they were always incarnated versions). Most of the Links only starred in two games.

    -The first Link from the two NES games.
    -Link from LTTP and LA
    -MM and OOT Link
    -WW and MC Link

    Possibly. But the Minish Cap Link and Wind Waker Link are NOT the same. How could he be the same age in both if in the Wind Waker the world is eclipsed in water?

    I still believe they're all the same, up until Wind Waker...

    And OoT MUST be the first one.

    It'll be fun to incorporate Twilight Princess later.

    Ah...I don't agree to that one. Interesting though.

    Maybe I'll email Nintendo or some other crap.

    Now, I must play my FF3 NES rom with an english patch. Farewell!

    I believe it went like this...
    ----------------------------
    0. LOZ: Before all of the Games

    The gods created the land, there was a war between races.. and link a hylian was born in the kokiri forest and zelda are born these are the first
    -----------------------------
    1. LOZ 5: Ocarina of Time
    We all know the story.. when he defeats ganon(dorf) he sets out to find his fairy.
    --------------------
    2. LOZ 6: Majora's Mask

    He Searches for fairy and somehow ends up in Termina where the moon is crashing.
    ----------------------------------------------
    2.5 LOZ:? Twilight Princess (speculation)

    Meanwhile back in hyrule, ganon gets power over many many years. They wait for the hero.. he doesnt come so they pray for help... it rains.. the land is submerged in water.

    (Nintendo claims it is set between OOT and WW)

    -----------------------------------------
    3. LOZ 9: The Windwaker
    Link the 2nd and Zelda the 2nd (Tetra) are born.

    They fight ganon - blah blah blah - they win!

    New hyrule is founded.
    ---------------------------------
    3.5 LOZ PhaNtom Hourglass (speculation)

    (Nintendo claims it to be a sequal to windwaker)

    ------------------------------------
    4. LOZ 3: A Link To The Past

    Zelda the 3rd and Link the 3rd are born

    Agahnim appears.. gets trusted.. and destroys the seal on ganon... Link (3rd) defeats them both.
    ---------------------------------
    5. LOZ 7: Oracle of Seasons and LOZ 8: Oracle of Ages

    Zelda(3rd) travels to Holodrum and Labryna where Gerudo witches (Koname and Kotaki) plan to revive Ganon. The Oracle of Seasons Din and Oracle of Ages Nayru are kidnapped before Zelda can stop it. Link beats Ganon again, freeing the Oracles.

    -----------------------------------
    6. LOZ 4: Link's Awakening

    Link gets shipwrecked on the koholint island. In order to escape he has to awaken some wind fish.. (I argue this to be just a dream so true timeline place is hard to say)

    Minions attack and destroy Hyrule castle and Kakariko villige The royal family flees to North Castle. Towns are named after the legendaty sages (OOT)

    For knowing the location of the triforce zelda the 4th is put a deep sleep

    Ganon reappears and steals the triforce of power.

    Link the 4th and Zelda the 5th are born
    -----------------------------------
    7. LOZ 1: Legend of Zelda

    Zelda (5th) inherits the triforce of Wisdom, Shatters it and is captured.

    Link (4th) recovers Triforce of Wisdom, defeats Ganon and saves her
    ------------------------------------
    8. LOZ 2: Adventure of Link

    Link (4th) recovers the Triforce of Courage and awakens zelda (4th)

    ps: I left out four swords because i never played it nor have i played the minish cap and know nothing of their story..for the positioning of Oracle of seasons and oracle of ages I'm uncertain.

    You mixed up Oracle of Ages and Seasons. Ages has to come before Seasons, as in a linked game from Ages to Seasons, Queen Ambi is on the beach. If Queen Ambi is in Holodrum, then portals to the past HAD to exist before Seasons took place(As Ambi existed in the past), thus placing Ages before Seasons.

    How dare you. Not really.

    Ahem. Minish Cap must happen around New Hyrule, because it uses the WW Zelda and Links. The Four Sword is created in Minish Cap, which is the sword in Four Swords.
