Possible Hylian Ancestors

Have you ever thought of how the Hylians came to be? Well I have a theory.

I think the Hylians were descended from ancient greek slaves who escaped onto the Great Sea (Mediterannean), then were guided by the Oocca to the new land (Hyrule), where they settled and eventually became a kingdom. They could've learned about the Triforce from the other races living there (Gorons, Zoras, etc.). This would also explain why there is so much greek architecture in the Temple of Time in TP, including drawings of greek-looking people on the walls of the temple, and in the last room, which looks kind of like the pantheon.

Pretty good theory huh?

Hyrule =/= real.

Greece = real.

so no, you'd be very wrong. Fantasy games take things like architecture from ancient civilizations to make it more old-feeling.

Also, the building is the Parthenon. The pantheon is the set of gods.

also, troll.

Re: Possible Hylian Ancestors

Also the Cobble and Zuna were Egyptians magically transported to Hyrule cause of all the pyramids and stuff.

Also here's a dancing chicken.

Re: Possible Hylian Ancestors

Dude, thats kind of mean.

And to tell you the truth, I don't believe that Hyrule was just fantasy. I believe it could've been a real place at one time. It is sort of my belief, something that gives me hope in this cold, cruel world.

Its a secret I've kept hidden for too long. Its time for me to let it out.

Well, I said it. Let the ribbing begin.

Re: Possible Hylian Ancestors

And Miyamoto is its sole prophet.

Aonuma will some day take the torch.

Then they will come and find you and declare you the Hero of Light.


Speaking of which- if you want to have this debate- fine.

In Ancient Stone Tablets the hero is of our world magically transported because Link is away. Ergo in-game evidence says Hyrule is a different world from our own.

ARE YOU SERIOUS KID???????

It's supposed to be a fun little game, IT IS NOT REAL!!! Do you think CandyLand and Start Wars are real? If you do, you need to see a therapist.

NO. Just the Legend of Zelda.

And you don't see ME calling YOUR beliefs CRAZY, DO YOU!!! How would YOU like it if I made fun of YOUR BELIEFS, HUH!!!!!!!????????!!!!!!!!!!

I mean, every religion started out with someone believing a crazy story. Well I don't see how this is any different.

Oh, and another thing.....your a BIG JERK for ridiculing my beliefs.

Because those stories didn't come from video games based on a man's childhood adventures in the forests of Japan.

Alright, alright, that's enough. Stop playing the martyr. There's a HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE difference between religion and believing a game was real. I used to believe that sort of thing about Harry Potter. I obviously grew out of it. I'm 17! I can't be that crazy anymore!

So if you're like 14 or younger, then it's okay. If not...see a therapist.

And by the way, don't further such a pointless argument, please. It's painful to watch.

A story has to come from SOMEONE right? Well, I believe that this man, as you say, found something while he was exploring, perhaps a book or log left by.....well, you could probably guess.


Oh, and AST is NOT Canon. So you can't really get reliable info from that game.

Re: Possible Hylian Ancestors

you are not being crazy, you are embarrasing yourself by thinking that Hyrule existed once.
Kid, Hyrule doesn't exist , it never did and probably never will.

Re: Possible Hylian Ancestors

It comes from a fishing term. It's where you shake the line to draw fish by making them think it's alive.

Re: Possible Hylian Ancestors

All dancing chickens and trolling aside, Nintendo does intend some meaningful parallels to the real world. For example, it is understandable that some fans of Wind Waker regard the 'kingdom under the waves' idea as directly taken from the concept of Atlantis in reality. Perhaps if a thread of this vein was altered slightly, and taken away from the theorising boards, we could get into some true discussion regarding real-world inspiration/reference.

Hyrule is not a reality, however. <3

Okay, then. I'm leaving. Bye, troll!
