It's funny how hundreds and thousands of years can pass but technology never advances.  I get that it would be weird to have a Zelda game running around in a modern city (although that would be interesting) but it's still funny.  Knights of the Old Republic takes place thousands of years before A New Hope but the technology is pretty much the same.

I feel like I'm watching a documentary in history class. Great work man 👍

the explanation of this series makes Ocarina of time the best zelda game of all time. that game was so good that they made 9 games around its storyline. wish the creator would have done a better job of telling us what series we were playing in by also putting it on the cover. would be nice to see (child) (adult) or (faulure) timeline somewhere near the title of the game. never the less i knew what storyline connected with what base off artwork but never could never put it in order. wonder why four swords wasnt a game with 3d graphics since that storyline was more of console games

You sound like the narrator from all those How it’s made episodes.

Just goes to show that when you make super fun games you can get away with ridiculously noncohesive plot lines. Good to know I can just walk into BOTW with an open mind.

I recommend having a separate tab of the official Zelda timeline out when watching this video. It helps make sense of everything.

I cant help but think “but that is a story for another day”

I like to think of it like this: its a legend, people have different stories behind the same legend. One person says it happened like this (ocarina of time), someone else says no it happened like this (wind waker). So any zelda that has link, zelda, and ganon, are all just variations of the same legend. And then there are games like MM and the gameboy games which are other tales about the hero of time. Makes things a lot simpler.

Imagine a game or series of games wherein the four Links (Fallen, Child, Toon, and Ravio) have to work together to defeat a thrice revived Vaati who's managed to become a threat across all three timelines and the dark world utilizing the very thing which had once sealed him: The Four Sword (probably combined with other artifacts). Vaati across all timelines and world plans to utilize all Triforces to become a God. Until a point it would appear as if everything will be fine if the fractured Vaati could be defeated. Then the timelines begin unraveling due to the destructive magics inherent in Vaati's initial attack with entire landmarks vanishing from existence. At the end of the game the Links are given the dire task to sacrifice their identities in order to save all reality by each grasping the Four Sword to combine their (3-4) Triforces into one and as a result so to each of the timelines. This could be why BotW Link seems to show characteristics of all Links.

My Wife and I have a theory for BotW's references to the timelines, primarily the scene regarding the ceremony with the Champions. The Triforce of Wisdom is a powerful catalyst for magic, granting it's bearer (Primarily Zelda), an almost divine level of magical power. However, in the hands of Zelda, who already has been proven to have a gift for foresight and prophecy, it gives her and her descendants visions of the past, present and future Hyrules regardless of their placement in Time. As for the flavor text for the rock salt, water levels ebb and flow over time, and 10,000 years is a long time, certainly long enough for a small inland sea to (mostly) drain. (I say small because, let's face it, Hyrule is positively tiny for a country.) And in regard's to MatPat's Game Theory on Link's Tunic of the Wild lends the strongest evidence to it being the Fallen Hero Timeline. The Twilight reference isn't coincidence, however, as it would be likely that a curious wizard or even a Sheikah Sage could've discovered it, or even explored it. A separate theory is that because of this aforementioned "Time Visions" is that the games are being told by one of Zelda's descendants to a scribe or chronicler. They could all be the same time just spread out by tens of thousands of years between the "timeline breaks". Thus, each one is both legend and fact being passed down from Princess to Princess across Time. They wouldn't record the gaps between because they couldn't, there was no Zelda in those gaps, as she and the Hero are only reborn when Evil is on the horizon. Sorry for the tangent, just felt like sharing, and yes, there are holes, but maybe someone can plug them. just food for thought.

Cameron McGee (25 days ago)
I’ve always thought of Breath of the Wild as a remake of Zelda 1. Or rather, a reimagining. It’s a collection of everything Nintendo would have put in the game if they had the technology, with an open explorable world to boot.

John Smith (26 days ago)
Could BOTW be the culmination of all the timelines? As in, this is where everything was meant to end at? Being that there is Easter eggs for all of the times lines there, that this was meant to cull time back to one unified order, if not be the end?
Gilbert Antonio (27 days ago)
Wait Wut?? Where's Corey?
Even if Aonuma wants to be cagey about anything definitive, I still see such a means of defying placement as reunification of the timeline. What this essentially means is that enough time has passed to collapse probability to a point where this era is inevitable; what has transpired in each of these various histories has been blurred and shuffled by the forces of necessity to the point where all of the timelines might as well have occurred in the past...probably. Like the wild itself, distortions in time such as the dispersion caused at the end of OOT are quickly rectified by natural counterbalances that act relentlessly with the passing ages. It's without a doubt Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle on steroids. I believe Escaflowne referred to such a thing as "The Zone of Absolute Fortune": what better fortune than the untamed bounty of nature pervading the entire realm?

It should be Link to the Past then Oracles of Seasons and Ages then Link's Awakening.

Ricky Lyon (28 days ago)
After listening to this amazing video, I feel the next game should be called Zelda: Apocalypse, take hundreds of hours to complete and have a reference to every single game and every single timeline that precedes it. It should have characters from all previous incarnations of the games as well as iconic items such as the master sword but also the four swords and the wind waker. The story could be something along the lines of: Somehow, the demon king Demise has resurfaced and found a way to mess with all the different Zelda universes and eras and Link has to travel through all of them to fix them all. The action would not only happen in Hyrule but also the Great Sea, Termina, Skyloft, Dark world, Lorule, Twilight, etc. Villains such as Vaati, Yuga, Agahnim, the Lady, Zant, Majora, Bellum, Malladus and Ganondorf could all return as generals of Demise, as well as a plethora of dungeon bosses. What do you think? How epic would that be?

We can still bring it close to either the hero's triumph or defeat in the child era, since the land is still being called Hyrule. Plus all the ruins that wouldn't exist in the adult era

Non Spicy memes (1 month ago)
I’m fairly new to the Zelda timeline and I just wanted to ask something. Is the timeline where link is defeated canon? From my perspective when you’re playing OOT you defeat Ganon. You don’t really die or lose in that game. Every death you get just eventually leads up to you beating Ganondorf.
Herr Wagnerianer (1 month ago)
I'm a little bit shocked that so many Zelda fans don't care at all about the timeline or even discard it as an unnecessary hindrance to creativity. That's the impression I got reading lots of comment sections of other BotW-related videos. I myself, though, am a great fan of the idea that all Zelda games are linked ( :-) ) together, thus formin a Gesamtkunstwerk, a total work of art consisting of dozens of mosaic pieces. Every single game is a piece of art in its own right, but coevally, they, as a whole, form a picture. It gives depth to the series while the shackles it places on the creative freedom of the developers are minor. Hopefully, I'm not completely alone, and hopefully, Nintendo won't backtrack and declare that there is not timeline at all.

In a way it does make sense to not have as part of the any of the three lines. And explains why Zelda in BOTW would know of the twilight realm.

I personally think that skyward sword and breath of the wild are the only games that actually happened and all the other games are just different possibilities from different choices.

Adult timeline: Link defeats Ganondorf and is sent back through time to warn Hyrule to avoid the disaster repeating. Child Timeline: The timeline he returns to before Ganondorfs arrival and take over in Hyrule. Other Child Timeline: The timeline Link returns to throughout the game to complete temples and quests. In this timeline the ocarina doesnt exist anymore as its in the adult timeline , Zelda and impa are still running from Ganondorf and Link is not here either as he was sent to the child timeline. Is this the fallen hero timeline?
Ben P (1 month ago)
Also, if Link brought the master sword with him to the Child Timeline then surely the master sword would not exist in the other two worlds. Maybe the swords would appear different in the different timelines as two would have had to have been forged again.

If the minish cap basically explains why link wears a green hat then why does he have it in skyward sword?
