Re: Link Zelda Connection

They are not related in any way, other than that in some games they are friends.

Re: Link Zelda Connection

So far, there hasn't been a game that has said they are related by blood in any form. But people have speculated about this but the fact remains there isn't really canon to prove this. I personally don't think they are related.

Re: Link Zelda Connection

I beleive they were related in Oot because link has no parents, and zelda doesnt have a mom. The deku tree said links mom brought him to the forest. Or something like that.

Re: Link Zelda Connection

I can tell they were defidently NOT related. Zelda's mom probably died in the war between the races sometime after she was born. Link's father probably died too, leaving his mother to have no choice but to bring Link into the forest where it was safe. She died from being injured afterwards. now this makes a lot of sense.

Re: Link Zelda Connection

I believe they were not related. I believe that Zelda's mother died while Zelda was young, but not too young. Like about 7 or something. Now, i reckon Links father was a palace soldier, and died during the war. Links mother died bringing him to the forest, confirming her death.

So you're saying they both have the same mom? Why would the Queen take Link to the forest and just leave Zelda? She wouldn't. Plus (in the manga, OMG!), Link's mother was a servant to the Queen and his father was a knight/soldier. Mystery solved. Case closed.

Re: Link Zelda Connection

Thank you guys I had heard a lot of stuff. Like how only the royal family or soon to become members of the royal family could have triforces. But I will go with the magna what the manga says is proabley right.

Link could be a bastard son. In the context of illegitimite, of course.

Wait a minute! Back up! We don't atcually have any real proof that Link's father was a Hylian soldier. We don't have any proof that Link's mother was a servant to the queen either(Where'd you get an idea like that any way?).

Re: Link Zelda Connection

Are you referring to that OoT comic? Because that's not a manga. The official JAPANESE manga by Akira Himekawa, however, was made in co-operation with Nintendo and therefore (I'm aiming this at those who think it's not canon) everything that isn't contradicted in the game should be considered canon.

According the manga Link's parents lived in a castle that's NOT Hyrule Castle. Ever noticed the ruins in the field? I believe they lived in a kingdom south of Zelda's father's kingdom before he unified Hyrule. They might even be King and Queen.

Re: Link Zelda Connection

Since when was the manga/comic confirmed to be part of the continuity? I know I didn't heart about that. We can only make assumptions should that be the case anyway.

This might be a stupid question, but by continuity do you mean timeline? If so, I don't know, but I don't think they'd need to be. They're just retellings of the stories, so it's basically the same thing. But they are 100% official (Miyamoto even told them what to put in the comics).

Re: Link Zelda Connection

Yeah. I mean the same thing. But usually, I've gotten the impression that comics and manga take liberties with stories and well, add elements to the story that aren't fitting into the actual well, continuity of it, for the lack of a better word. An example would be Star Wars. Lucas approves of them and all those expanded works, but I don't remember him saying that it fit into the canon.

Mainly what I think is that you can go to the manga for stuff that isn't cleared up in the games (Link's parents for instance), but if something in the manga is in direct conflict with what's in the game, you automatically go with what's in the game, since it came first (Volvagia's origins: In the manga he was Link's pet/best friend; in the game he's an ancient demon).

Re: Link Zelda Connection

I've flitted backwards and forwards with the sibling relationship between the two (only in Ocarina of Time, mind you) for a while - all because the first (possibly second) time you talk to the ghost of Sharp the Elder he tells Link:

"I don't know why, but when I look at you I am reminded of Princess Zelda"

Plus Impa's whole, "only royal family members are taught this song" bit... made me think "Hmmm...", and we know that Shigsy likes Star Wars, at least I'm sure I read it somewhere...

I was also certain for a long time that I came across a gossip stone that said that Zelda's mother had gone missing in a war years ago, but I recently did a clean sweep of all the gossip stones and it's not there, so I must have dreamt it up. Weird.

Currently I'm of the mind that they weren't brother and sister - maybe the comment made by the Sharp ghost was just a little in-joke given the whole thing that went down with the "Link, Zelda is your..." in ALTTP.

Actually, come to think of it, I've not spoken with that ghost in ages, I might have imagined that dialog as well... though I can't think I'd just randomly make something like that up.

This is where playing videogames too late into the night gets you.

As for the Manga - if it had anything in direct conflict with the game, then I'd tend to think that it can all be taken with a pinch of salt. If it was canon then there would be no conflict with the game at all surely?

Yes, because we all know that when people look like one another, they're automatically related.

So, Impa's a member of the royal family now? She knows the song.

"Zelda is your...destiny." (Japanese version of ALttP) Just for the people who constantly use this quote for evidence of their siblinghood.

No, you're right. That ghost says it. And actually, I had thought I had dreamed up some of the conversations with those ghosts, too. They were talking about researching the triforce, I think, and the royal family, but I could never get them to say it again. So, I just forgot about it, until I found a text dump that had what I'd heard. I was happy; I really wasn't crazy!

Not necessarily. They're going to change some stuff like that to make it more interesting/not so boring. For instance, we know that Mido didn't go in the Forest Temple with Link, it was changed to make it more interesting, even if it is directly conflicting. Same with the Volvagia thing and cutting down the time it takes to get through the dungeons. Plus, why would you want the exact same thing (the game) in book form?
