Re: Where are Links parents in WW

Most Zelda games portray Link as an orphan, with a virtually unknown origin.

In some games he lives with his uncle or another relative, but his parents are completely unseen. I think OoT is the only game that mentions his parents, telling us that his mother died after giving baby Link to the Deku Tree.

As for TWW and other games, we must simply assume his parents are already dead or missing for whatever reason, prior to the events of the game.

Re: Where are Links parents in WW

I didn't know they specifically mentioned Link's parents in Ocarina of Time. Then again, it's been a little while since I played that game, and read the text closely. Interesting.

As for Link, the poor soul, he's always, as mentioned before, depicted as a parentless child. It's never strongly referred to in the story, however, it's just how he is. Link has no parents. In some games, he does seem to live with family members. WW Link is one of the few Links that actually has more than one family member, and a really close relative (his sister).

aLtTP Link lived with his uncle, however short-lived that was. TP Link has no family that we can see, and he seems to be the only Hylian in all of Ordon. OoT Link was raised by the Kokiri, and apparently, there is some vauge mention of his parents (or mother). I'm sure in the other games, his family either consists of a distant relative, or he's taken care of by the community.

As for WW Link? And where his parents went? You can somewhat assume that they died at some point. Since there really is NO mention of them. Whatsoever. If they were still alive, there's definately a chance that they'd be mentioned to being "Overseas" or "On another island", or something. But no. It looks like Link, Aryll and his grandmother are all that's left of their little family.

well i knew about the mention in OoT.. and i know about the uncle in AlttP.. i was just wondering why they were never mentioned in WW though your right and you have to assume that they are dead.. i just figured since he does have a close relative (sister) then they might have mentioned them..

Re: Where are Links parents in WW

Link: Mum, i am going to kill Ganon now.
Link's Mum: You'll be back at 10 o'clock. No alcohol and drugs and watch out for maniacs!
Link: Dad, can i get some money?
Link's Dad: *readingthenewspaper* No.
That is why Link has no parents.

Well, wouldn't his granparents/uncle be a little more overprotective, because they've already lost their own kids?

Japanese seem to be obsessed with chosen orphan warriors so just leave them alone.

Re: Where are Links parents in WW

Most likely since there is no mentioning in the game they are dead. That's what I thought.

Re: Where are Links parents in WW

Lets see mmm.... I once read that Links parents died in the great Hylian war or something like that. That would direct him as an orphan. The only family members ever mentioned r his sis Aryll and his grandmother. So ya sadly thier dead.

Re: Where are Links parents in WW

No prents for Link. He is always an orphan... though I wonder what it would be like if Link had a father who was a great Hylian warrior, but then he got caught by Ganon in a war or something and Link has to go and save him. Anyone think that would be a cool opening to a Zelda game?

Re: Where are Links parents in WW

Link's parents have never appeared because Nintendo wants to leave his personality up to the player. If Link's parents were included, they would have too much influence over Link's personality, particularly if he were a child (which he usually is).

Re: Where are Links parents in WW

I agree, I rather have the normal and kind Link that I love. And ya good idea for the next game of storyline. Does anybody have idea how to e-mail Mayiomoto?
