Finally, after years of wanting to fully redo this video to the quality it deserves, it has finally been done! Hope you enjoy the 30+ minutes of Zora timeline as Joseph and I have been working hard on this one! :)

Commonwealth Realm great video! But you should of waited after the 2nd DLC came out considering the true ending of BOTW hints that you will visit Zoras Domain again. We might get new scenes of the champions. Oh well I'll watch the updated version again anyway lol

Hyrule is a tyranny.

I know that this was made a year ago but I have to say something. I have NEVER believed the Rito were an evolved Zora. I believe that Medley was descended from Laruta via an interspecies MARRIAGE. Ruto fell in love with a Hylian so why couldn't Laruta marry a Rito. It is a possibility.

I absolutely LOVE these educational videos. They help me get a better idea of the timelines since I had some trouble catching all of the information as a young kid playing the older games. One suggestion I might add would be to research sentence structure and basic grammar. I am not trying to be a Grammar Nazi, but there are a lot of basic errors and a TON of repetitious language that would sound so much more professional if edited a bit more carefully and properly. An example would be in the beginning of one of the videos when it was stated: "Greedy individuals made its way...". It just sounds weird.... It should be something like: "Greedy individuals made THEIR way...", just very basic structure. As far as repetition, using the same words unnecessarily twice or more in a sentence is a boring way to elaborate. Saying something like "He restored the kingdom to its former glory by restoring the sword to its original state" as an example. I simply think with these small tweaks, it could be big budget-level sounding stuff! Keep up the great work and good job on making a very cohesive timeline series! <3

Garbage. The majority of zelda games have no link. Only Ocorina of time and Majoras mask.
leozar69 (10 days ago)
My theory of the Zora and Rito coexisting, is that some Zora left the tribe, or were simply elsewhere while the events of the hero took place. And/or there's more than just one Zora tribe, not only in Hyrule. Which is most likely.

Can you answer my number one question , why is Calamity Ganon boss fight garbage I'm a dark souls master so I need challenge boss was a fucking joke made me very disappointed very very disappointed I love Majora's Mask that shit's difficult so that disappointed me . I killed him with four with four hearts in just a few weapons didn't do any Divine beasts .
AirCooledMan2006 (11 days ago)
Those divine beasts...does the Brotherhood of Steel know about this? New California Republic? The Enclave? The Institute? I have a theory that the Legend of Zelda and Fallout games are set in the same universe. The Vault Dweller, Chosen One, Lone Wanderer, Courier, and Sole Survivor are all high as fuck and everything we see in the Zelda games is actually them hallucinating while chemmed up. By convention, we see our Fallout protagonists as Link. Hyrule, Termina, Koholint Island, etc. are all stand-ins for the NCR, Mojave, Sierra Madre, Zion Canyon, Big Mountain, Divide, Capital Wasteland, and Commonwealth. All the dungeons are vaults, Pre-War buildings, caves, and other structures. Case in point: A Link to the Past and New Vegas. Our drugged-up Courier, hot off being shot in the head, starts out at Link's uncle's house a.k.a. Doc Mitchell's house in Goodsprings. Zelda? She's an anthropomorphization of the Platinum Chip that Aghanim/Benny stole from the Courier. The path Link takes? Once you get past the Courier's drugged stupors on everything from Buffout to Turbo to that Datura Root tea you drink right before fighting Ghost of She during Honest Hearts; it's all the Courier's pursuit of Benny through Primm, Nipton, Novac, Boulder City, and ultimately the Vegas Strip. Ganon is a trippy version of Caesar with his minons as the Legion. Ironknuckles could easily be Protectrons, Sentrybots, Securitrons, and anyone in NCR, Enclave (the Remnants and, depending on your choices during the quest For Auld Lang Syne, Arcade), or Brotherhood power armor. Lakelurks appear as Zoras. Super Mutants appear as Moblins and other humanoids. Death Mountain is oh so easily a stand-in for Mt. Charleston and Jacobstown. The trip to save the maidens in the Dark World? Easily the quests to deal with the Brotherhood, Great Khans, Boomers, Omertas, and White Glove Society (our Courier is on drugs, remember), along with the New Vegas add-ons. And just as Link is fully equipped when he faces off against Ganon, the Courier is fully equipped when fighting the Second Battle of Hoover Dam. The Triforce represents control over New Vegas and the Mojave, be it through the Securitron Army and Mr. House/Yes Man, NCR, or Caesar's Legion (depending on alignment). Change my mind.
The converged timeline is literally the stupidest thing ever

whats sad, is the fans demanded a timeline and continuity, but there never has been! Zora's were completely different looking in original games, then they tried to say " oh those are "river," zoras," however this was also contradicted in many other games, laughable but love these games

What game is the footage of the Gerudo-Hylian war from? I do not recognize it but it looks wicked sick!
jorge oquendo (2 months ago)
I think that the Rito and Zora coexisting in BotW really isn't all that weird tbh. For some reason everyone thinks the Rito in WW had evolved from the zora, but this doesn't make sense as the Rito chieftain literally tells you how they get their wings, Valoo's scale. I don't think they're evolved from the zora, i think they were transformed from the Zora by Valoo. The Rito in WW are just humans with beaks and wings, the Rito in BotW are actual birds, i think there is a simple explanation to this. The Zora are very prominent in BotW, not just in Zora's domain either, wouldn't this mean that the river zora would be a prominent enemy as well? There are no River zora in BotW, i think they evolved into the BotW Rito, it makes sense since the River zora were more fish than human, so if they evolved into birds it'd make sense that they'd be more bird than human. I think the reason for this evolution is pretty simple as well, as i said, the zora are very prominent in BotW and they rule the waters, i don't think they'd suffer territorial disputes with their more aggressive counterparts. The river zora were kicked out of the waters and had to evolve to survive on land. Also, BotW is DEFINITELY in the child timeline, Zelda herself mentions twilight princess, all the other evidence for the other timelines are just circumstantial and weak or are easily explained by a little thinking. And there is no dialogue evidence for it being in another timeline like there is for the child timeline. The koroks can exist in any timeline as long as there is some kind of reason for their appearance. 10,000 years before BotW for something to have happened. There is also the possibility that the kokiri were only a thing to help raise link, OoT says link's mother brought him to "the great deku tree", no mention of forest children or the kokiri by name. The rock salt is referencing the lanayru sea you visit via timeshift stone in skyward sword, hence "ancient sea", not "great sea". The dragonroost island theme in Rito village and "Vah Medoh" are just nods to WW, or are you thinking Rito village is built on/around Dragonroost island? The divine beast names could've been anything, they only mean something to us who've played the games. The only divine beast mentioned in-game to be named after someone is Vah Ruta. And maybe Vah Nabooris? I feel like it might've said something about Nabooru or i could just be mixing up what the community decided was a connection. The lynels exist in BotW because Ganon went full power like he did in the downfall timelines's beginning. In the downfall timelines beginning his reason for going to max was attaining the complete triforce, in BotW, at the end of the child timeline, Ganon's reason for going to max is his giving up on reincarnation in an attempt to end the cycle. In both timelines he unleashes everything and is able to create his most powerful minion.

In the Ocarina of Time Manga there was a Bonus chapter in wich there was another wandering Tribe of Bird people very similar to the rito From breath of the wild... Coexisting with the Zora.
Icecreameskimo (5 months ago)
maybe the rito where just hippie zora that wanted to be different and so settled on land and then eventually became the rito while the zora just kinda sat there underwater
Ashley Is Artsy (5 months ago)
Kinda surprised the different carved stones referring to the history of the zora that are actually in botw as a sidequest weren't mentioned. They tell us a few interesting bits of info about them and their culture as of that game! Great video, though.

You know what would be a really cool game....an open world Zelda during the civil war. Everyone wants link to pick a side but he works together with Zelda to bring the triforce together with a young Ganondorf...once peace is brought to the kingdom Ganondorf becomes corrupted with his piece of the triforce and becomes Ganon. Zelda, Link and the leaders of the other tribes have to work together to fight back and seal the evil. Hence the creation of the sages and the seal with the master sword in the Temple of Time.

Here's a question I have regarding the Zora. In breath of the wild, I think its stated that Zora age slowly, when compared to Hylians. Though in Ocarina of Time, Ruto seems to have aged the same amount as Link, when he moves forward seven years, is this ever explained?
