Single Link Theory

This thread is to discuss the Single Link Theory. (SLT) This theory believes that there is one Link in the whole series. Fans stopped accepting this after WW was released in 2003. After that, the theory then included that each Link is a descendant of the Hero of Men, rather than the Hero of Time.

Re: Single Link Theory

If you read the whole thing, you would see that it also included that the Links were descendants of the "Hero of Men" from MC. The idea of one Link was crossed off of the list after WW was released.

Re: Single Link Theory

What exactly is the point/purpose of this thread? And I think the majority abolished the single Link theory earlier than 2003...12 years earlier.

Re: Single Link Theory

Yes, the single Link theory was abolished in 1991 when ALttP claimed to be about "the predecessors of Link and Zelda".

Did anyone read this part? Seriously, the idea was crossed off a long time ago and now that was the new idea.

Re: Single Link Theory

You have to make a statement discussable in order to expect relevant discussion.

Re: Single Link Theory

Hero of Men? Isn't that from Minish Cap?

Re: Single Link Theory

Yeah, as said it's been long established that there are multiple Links. :]
I suppose the question is now as to how they are appointed as the Hero in the first place.

The two most popular theories are reincarnation of the same spirit/soul, or biological descension by blooodline.

I personally think that the souls of Zelda and Link from OoT are reincarnated, since they are the ones that are involved in the splitting of the Triforce, and so are reincarnated when matters of the Triforce arise.

Re: Single Link Theory

Personally, when I was young, I actually believed that there was a nonsensical aspect to the arrangement of the games, and they were more or less fables passed down through generations, always evolving, thus the reasoning for similar aspects in different stories- they are simply just different tellings of the same story, manipulated by the ages.

Re: Single Link Theory

Well I used to believe there was only 1 Link until I was wondering why WW and OOT Link were so different and then I knew it all.

Well for a start, why is your thread called "single Link Theory" and states that it's a place to discuss the Single Link Theory?
And there is not much to be said about the statement you just quoted.
Are all Links decendants of the hero of men? Maybe. Is there evidence for that? No.

Re: Single Link Theory

There was really people who theorized this? Not even a plausible theory, or even close to being plausible.

Because the idea of them being descendants of the Hero of Men is a part of the SLT.

How can many people being many descendants of one person be a part of a theory in which only one entity is proposed?

Re: Single Link Theory

Because the idea was eliminated completely after TWW with Toon Link. That's when people began to believe that all of them were descendants of the original Link from LoZ. I didn't create it, I just found out about it and wanted to get other people's opinions on it.

So what does this have to do with the Hero of Men?

Re: Single Link Theory

Actually, I think it was revealed far earlier in ALttP, when Link was said to have been a descendant of the original knight/hero.

The single Link theory was disproved years before WW.

From what I understand, it was fully disproved after TWW. I read an article about it.

Well, before ALttP, there was only LoZ/AoL, so there wouldn't have been able to be multiple Links.

I'm fairly certain that the "knight/hero descendant" talk came from ALttP.

So the concept of multiple Links was revealed in ALttP.
