All over the manual and game if you call yourself Link.

You know the current people of Greece can't understand a word of the ancient language of Creek. Any ideas on that why? Languages change through time. Even the Hylians in OoT couldn't read, write or understand the ancient forms of their language if not taught to on purpose. I mean it only takes 200 years to make a language change so that the current speakers can't understand any of it. Some languages even die completely in 20 years.

Besides the term "human" I think is used in the games to simplify things to people. I do hate that in TP Midna asks to turn you back to a human when I think it should say Hylian.

Re: Theory: The Hero in Alttp isn't actually Link!

Same with Sanskrit, Latin, Ancient Keralan-

I agree Link in aLttP isn't Hylian in the same way modern Italians aren't Latin-

But the blood is there and the line of knights and HE IS LINK.

It dosen't say that in ANY of the other games. And, Link is Hylian, he has pointy ears as hell. There is a 0% it isn't a Link.

"Link and Zelda's ancestors". Sure, that was mis-translation, but they still agreed that it was LINK'S ancestor, so it is a LINK.

Re: Theory: The Hero in Alttp isn't actually Link!

just by being the hero of the game, the character must be Link.

also, the games aren't exactly consistent in distinguishing "human" from "Hylian," just like they aren't all consistent in distinguishing "Ganon" from "Ganondorf."

Re: Theory: The Hero in Alttp isn't actually Link!

I think that when the game's title is "A Link to the Past", that might be a hint that he's Link.

^ Both comments above are 100% correct. I know you want something revolutionary here, like the split timeline theory, but it just isn't happening.

Ganondorf is the character that always appears as a human gerudo and Ganon is the FSA's Ganon (Bluish Pig with trident). Ganon and Ganondorf are actually two different People now. Evidence points toward it.

OoT/MM/WW/TP Show a Human Ganon transforming into a beast from time to time
LttP/LoZ/OoX/FSA Show a boar Ganon (who's origins come from FSA Where it is implied that after he stole the trident he permanently transformed into a Pig-Beast)
Yea.

Re: Theory: The Hero in Alttp isn't actually Link!

Plus they have like four types of Hylian writing.. and I don't remember it any where saying "All LINKS ARE HYLIAN"

I guess we know that ALttP is actually link! - thanks for that Strongfan (not really a strong fan)

(and im not being sarcastic either)

yes, I know that, but the games aren't consistent with this at all. The best example I know of is in Wind Waker. Ganondorf is almost exclusively called Ganon, regardless of his form, by the King of Red Lions.

True, maybe that is because the last name THAT specific Ganon recieved (When link stabbed him in the head and had him sealed away) was "Ganon" And i suppose the King just reffered to him as Link and Zelda knew him at the end of OoT, as GANON. hmm...

Re: Theory: The Hero in Alttp isn't actually Link!

Wasn't he known as Ganondorf througout that whole game? So wouldn't the king and everyone know him by that name, not the words across the bottom of the screen when you fight him?

while the King of Red Lions calls him "Ganon," Ganondorf does actually refer to himself as "Ganondorf" later in the game.

my point is that it isn't necessarily consistent. Same thing with "human" and "Hylian." Even in one game, someone might be referred to by either term, just like with Ganon/Ganondorf.

in Wind Waker? He is referred to as both Ganon and Ganondorf, despite never transforming.

It was mentioned in the Zelda no Video documentary.

Also, it's canon. Cannon is the weapon.

Explain why it can't be canon. After all, it is a Zelda game made by Nintendo. Just because you don't play as Link doesn't mean it's not a Zelda game. It's not like the series is called "The Legend of Link".
