Gustaf? What?

Okay, I've gone through The Minish Cap, and I'm in the process of doing it a second time, but I gotta ask: Where do people get the idea that the name of the Hero of Men is "Gustaf"? I don't recall seeing this at all in the game.

He's the king you get a gold Kinstone piece from if you visit him in the Royal Valley.

Re: Gustaf? What?

I... uh... Huh. Apparently I need to get back to that point in the game again soon.

Nope.

Gustaf is a 'Fan-made' name. No one really knows it, but many people think he is really Swiftblade, the last of the swordmaster brothers. (Who's dead)

Oh, maybe the ghost king's name was Gustav. Swiftblade the first, who you can find in Castor Wilds, is my guess on who's the Hero of Men too.

Re: Gustaf? What?

Gustaf, if I'm not mistaken, was the previous king of Hyrule. You can find his ghost in the royal valley. He isn't the Hero of Men. I don't really think you even see The Hero of Men at all in the Minish Cap, and if you do, it's most likely Swiftblade the first.

Re: Gustaf? What?

They reveal Gustaf's name when you collect his figurine, do they not?

The "Gustaf being the Hero of Men" theory came from that Retrospective that Gametrailers had a while back, I believe. It was interesting to watch but their timeline had a bunch of holes in it. (Gustaf being the hero was one of them.)

They reveal Gustaf's name when you talk to him, he tells you that he is "King Gustaf" I think.

I new it had something to do with Gametrailers which started the theory!

Re: Gustaf? What?

Sorry for posting in such an old thread, but this has always pissed me off.
There is no Gustaf. Check any text dump, read the figurine, it does not explicitly name the Royal Spirit anywhere, and it by no means says he was the hero chosen by the Picori. It's all over Wikis now, and figurine lists list him as Gustaf now, wheras they had previously not.
I painstakingly got every figurine in the game, and nowhere did the word "Gustaf" appear.
This is complete tripe generated by a poorly informed GameTrailers employee making a retrospective with a bunch of holes in his logic.

Re: Gustaf? What?

I have this problem of misplacing my memories. When I first watched the retrospective, I thought, "Hey, they never named the Hero in the intro" and the memory deteriorated into "Hey, they never named the Royal Spirit" and it spun out of control from there. I apologize. I trust my memory too much.
Last time I checked that text dump, though, my Ctrl + F came up red. lol

So now I can rest easy, though I'll still be hostile if anyone calls the Hero by Gustaf.

And you have every right to be. There is absolutely no reason for anyone to think Gustaf is the Hero of Men.
