religouse elements in zelda series

let it be from christianity to islam, hinduism and what not. if you have realized any interesting religiouse implementations the guys at nintendo put into the series and also specific games to, share your thoughts.

if you have also noticed any important themes that might also attribute to eligion, share those two.

off the top of my head the only thing right now i can mention are the three goddesses

First of all, sentences start with a capital letter, and questions end with a question mark. Secondly, you spelled "religious" wrong as well.

Besides the mirror shield in OoT, I got nothing.

Re: religouse elements in zelda series

Hylian Dan came up with this interesting theory that the Stone Tower Temple in MM is based on the Tower of Babel, which can be found here.

Re: religouse elements in zelda series

Nobody actually knows if the bird is a phoenix or not. Some people believe it is, but it's never actually mentioned in any of the games as far as I know. So, you can continue to think it is whatever you want, because you can't technically be wrong.

Speaking of the bird/phoenix, it's not only on Zelda's dress. I think it's considered the Royal Crest of Hyrule, and it's found in various places, including on several of the shields in the game.

Agahnim was a priest in the original Japanese version of LTTP (which was called Triforce of the Gods in the original Japanese version.)

Re: religouse elements in zelda series

The three goddesses could be a reference to God being Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Also, Link and Zelda are reincarnated throughout the series, a reference to Hinduism.

Re: religouse elements in zelda series

I do not think the point of this topic was to point out religious tribes within the games, but how some events in the game relates to real world religions.'

A priest is anyone who is an elite/guide in a religion.

A sanctuary is not neccisarily a religious location, it is simply a place that one can find peace.

I do not see the relation between the Goddesses and the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Re: religouse elements in zelda series

someone in the forum of the tower of babel mentioned that:
Power-God the Father
Courage- The son
Wisdom-the holy spirit in a nutshell you could agree that they coincide vaguely. the wisdom and power do, but im still thinking of whether courage could still be attributed to the son.
