Ocarina of Time - Dark Link

Hey guys. Guess what? Two more Ocarina of Time posts! Yes, there will be this and another one. However, this articles won't be that great. I have very little information on Dark Link, but the Sheikah Artifacts post will be full of surprises. Anyways, enjoy the post!

Dark Link is perhaps one of the most mysterious characters in all of the Zelda games. He, or it,  knows every move Link knows, attacks identically, sounds the same, and looks exactly alike beside of the dark feature he possesses. Some say that he was created from Links "dark side". I do not believe this. Only one pure of heart can pull the Master Sword out of the Pedestal of Time. Link was able to do this, and this proves that he has no evil in his heart. It is a possibility that he was created by Ganondorf, perhaps the same way he created Phantom Ganon. Another (unlikely) possibilty is that something that happened to Link or one of his ancestors that split his hero and dark side into two, which caused the creation of Dark Link. It's up to you what to believe.

Make sure to watch my new videos that I made on my YouTube channel, and to read my next Ocarina of Time post. It will be really good. I am also planning to make a video for Top 10 Scariest Zelda Songs, so check the "Fun Stuff" page regularly to see if it's up. Enjoy the rest of the site!

New Pages

Hey readers. There are a couple of things I would like to say today. First of all, I am starting schools soon, so I will post less frequently now, around once a week. The same goes to my YouTube channel. Another thing is, I have added 2 new pages to this site. One is for our affiliates, and the other is titled "Fun Stuff". I will feature things such as top 10's and 20's here, but I am sad to say I have none now (but I am working on one). Anyways, I hope you guys enjoy the changes!

Majora's Mask - Poe Salesman

Hey everybody. There are a couple of things I would like to say before I start the article. First of all, I would like to say that I have started a new Ocarina of Time walkthrough on my YouTube channel! I have decided to start a new site soon solely dedicated to Zelda walkthroughs, and I will have the link on the sidebar soon. Another thing is that this the last Majora's Mask articles, so if you have any last-second ideas, bring them in.

The Poe Salesman, truly a very mysterious character from both Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask. However, he is featured in the Majora's Mask section because that is where he plays a bigger part. Let's get started with his identity. I think it is obvious who he is. You can see in the video in this post, but let me explain anyways. When you talk to the guard standing in the shed full of pots at daytime, he will say that he wishes the world had some more troubles. And if you walk in on him at night, he says he is interested in collecting ghosts. In my opinion, this settles it. So the guard became the Poe Salesman.

Now, some may ask if the Poe Salesman is the same one from Majora's Mask. I think so. You see, in Ocarina of Time, Link defeats Ganondorf and insures a safe future for the people of Hyrule. The guard decides to chase his hobby and find a ghost-inhabited place, and departs to Ikana Canyon. This is why he is found there in Majora's Mask. The Poe Salesman also appears to have powers. He summons a dead tree from nowhere in Majora's Mask to aid Link, and is also able to read minds. Has Ganondorf blessed him with those powers when he turned over to the Dark side? Who knows.  

I hoped you guys like the last Majora's Mask article. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, but I actually added Zelda Level to our affiliates a really long time ago but I forgot to mention it. Anyways, it's a great Zelda site for news and articles. I myself wrote a couple there. So you should check it out. And remember to follow the site before leaving!

Majora's Mask - Boss Masks

Good news, everybody! The sidebar gadgets are fixed. Previously, the search and followers gadget were not working, but I fixed them. However, the search gadget will work differently. When you search for a word, you will get all posts with that word. In other news, I have uploaded another video here and on YouTube, and it is about the Fire Temple. Check it out when you can.

The bosses and boss masks in Majora's Mask have very little known about them, so do not expect too much from this article. We all know that the Giants wore certain masks that transformed them, possessed them, and gave them Dark powers. They completely took over the Giants' body and made them do actions they normally would never do, seeing as they are god-like peace-keepers. These masks are clearly the same type of mask Majora's Mask is (though not as strong). But how did they get the masks? Where did the masks come from? And why did the Giants wear them in the first place? Here is an analysis:

Odolwa: The masked, jungle warrior Odolwa was what one of the Giants transformed into when he wore it's mask. The mask must have been created in the swamp region of Termina, seeing as it is the only region that seems jungle-like. I believe an ancient native tribe similar to the tribe I previously had an article about made this mask. This explains the face paint and tribal dancing and chanting. But it has Dark powers, seeing as it poisons the swamp water and makes the wearer very violent and able to summon bugs to aid him. This mask was probably used in war. But how did the Giant find it? Well, it is not coincidence that all the Giants wear Dark masks and transform at the same time. The Skull Kid must have somehow found the masks using Majora's Mask, and as he was the Giants' friend, he gave the masks to them, tricking them into wearing them.

Goht: This and the next two masks show how the Boss Masks are capable of fully transforming a body. The masked, mechanical monster Goht was what became of another Giant after he wore the mask. It transformed him to a large, mechanical bull. This theory may seemed far-fetched, but maybe this mask was possibly made by someone (Goron?) to create an extremely fat creature capable of winning many races. Of course,  races are very popular among Goron, so it could be true. Of course, this is not necessarily true. This mask could have simply been made by a crazy man living near Snowhead Temple, as it also has Dark powers allowing the mountains to be covered in snow. As I said before, the Skull Kid tricked the Giant into taking it, which is why he ended up wearing it.

Gyorg: This gargantuan, masked fish also demonstrates how the Boss Masks can transform your body. This mask transformed one of the Giants to a large, vicious fish that has immense powers. It can hit the platform you stand on so hard you will collapse, and it turns the water around Great Bay very murky. Where has this mask originated from. It does not seem likely that anyone made this mask, seeing as a gyorg is a type of fish monster that appears in different Zelda games. Maybe it came from the corpse of an especially powerful gyorg, and Majora's Mask injected powers into it that will turn the wearer into a large and powerful gyorg. And I said before how the Giant must have gotten it into his hands.

Twinmold: This pair of giant masked insects are very powerful. They are possibly the biggest boss in the whole Zelda series. It also has strong Dark powers, capable of giving a depressing mood to all of Ikana Canyon. The theories of where this mask could have came from are countless, seeing as Ikana is one of the most mysterious regions in all of Zelda. The most likely theory, in my opinion, is that it was made by the same ancient tribe that made Majora's Mask and the Giant's Mask. More proof to support this is that it was found in Stone Tower Temple, the temple of the Ancient Tribe. So the facts came pretty straight for this mask.

Well, that concludes the Boss Masks article. I know it seems unlikely, but I don't think you can find any better ideas elsewhere. So, I hope you enjoyed the article, and remember to follow the site before leaving this page!

Majora's Mask - Fierce Deity's Mask

Hey everybody. Hope you liked the moon theory. It is a bit confusing, but if you think about it, it all makes sense. I have some news for all the readers of this site. The Majora's Mask section is coming to an end (as I said last post) after this article and two others. Well, before I start the section of a new game, I am going to add two Ocarina of Time articles (you can see what they are below on the sidebar, along with other future posts). Another thing is that I finally beat Link's Awakening! The story is really confusing, so be sure to expect a section about it. But for now, we are stuck on Majora's Mask.

First thing I would like to say is that anyone who has not read the previous article about the moon may not fully understand this, so I advise you to do that before you read this. Anyways, the Fierce Deity's Mask is the mask you get at the end of the game in the moon when you trade in all of your masks to the children running around. As I have said last post, Link's whole experience on the moon was basically an illusion created in his mind. This theory will support this. Seeing as Link has all of his masks back at the end of the game, this shows that he did not give any of them, and the Fierce Deity's Mask he supposedly had cannot be used. It is displayed in the menu simply to show that you have collected all of the masks in the game, and defeated Majora's Mask. So at the end, the Fierce Deity's Mask was not real, but was part of the illusion (or parallel world) Majora's Mask created for Link inside the moon.

Yes, I know. This was a short article. But don't worry. Hopefully next article, which will be about either the Boss Masks or the Poe Salesman, will be longer. Anyways, I am now accepting request for which Zelda game I should play. Oh yeah, and I forgot to mention, check out the new video about the Shadow Temple I have made on the videos page or on YouTube. I guarantee it will be good.

Majora's Mask - The Moon

Hey everybody. I have some bad news and good news. The bad news is that the Majora's Mask section of this site is coming to a close. I only have about 3 ideas left, I don't know what the next game the site will be about will be next (though it will either be A Link to the Past or Wind Waker). The good news is that the Zelda Realm YouTube channel has reached 20 subscribers in only a week! If only we had that many followers... anyways, to the article.

The moon plays a very important role in Majora's Mask, as we all know. But many facts about it are ignored and not mentioned in the game. For example, the face on the moon does not appear in any Zelda game and seems very evil. However, the residents of Clock Town do not find it is strange at all that there is a face on the moon. I read something online that said the face was not there at all, but was just a symbol of anger and destruction. This cannot be true, seeing as Link went into the mouth of the moon. Then I came to a conclusion: Termina is a parallel world, which means it can have things Hyrule doesn't. This includes a moon with a face. I believe the facial expression of it must have changed when the curse of Majora's Mask was placed upon it. Confusing? Yes, but it makes sense.

The face on the moon is not the only strange thing about it. One of the most mysterious ideas surrounding this game is how there is a large, seemingly endless plain and one single tree inside the moon, and many children wearing the masks of the bosses you have defeated running around the tree. First of all, I would like to say that I do not believe the experience in the moon even happened to Link. As we know, Majora's Mask is a very powerful mask. It must have created a mind illusion for Link. Some people may not believe this, which is why I have a better theory. Majora's Mask must have created a parallel, simple dimension inside the moon, for the sake of challenging Link. The dungeons? Of course, these were also created by Majora's Mask. When Link defeated all of the bosses from the previous levels, the essence from the temple must have stayed in the mask of the boss, which is why the dungeons from inside the moon match the temple of their boss' mask.

Unfortunately, I know very little of the 5 kids in the moon. I believe that they also are creations of Majora's Mask. They are not human at all. How about the strange questions they ask you? Majora's Mask and it's kid creations must have took on the essence of the previous wearer of the mask, in this case, Skull Kid. This is why the questions they ask all have something to do with Skull Kid's problems.

I hoped you guys liked this post. It took me a lot of thinking, and this theory is 100% from me, so I got almost no information from anyone else. If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to contact me or comment. Remember to follow before leaving this site, and make sure to read next post!

New Blog?

Oh no! Another update! Sorry for the lack of real posts, but their are some things I need to tell everyone about. First of all, the "followers" gadget and the "search" gadget on the sidebar may not work for everyone. I need anyone that is experiencing difficulties with the sidebar gadgets to report to me as soon as possible. Secondly, I am wondering about making a new blog solely dedicated to Zelda walkthroughs. If anyone has anything to say about this or has any idea on how to fix sidebar gadgets, please contact me. Thanks for your support.

Majora's Mask - Happy Mask Salesman

Finally back to real posts! Sorry for the long delay of theory posts, but I have been working very hard this past week. I changed the title (hope it's nice!), the logo, created a banner, made a new YouTube channel, and changed the site name and URL. It took a long while, but it's all set and done now. Thanks for the support from everyone who helped! Now, let's get to theorizing about the mysterious Happy Mask Salesman.

The Happy Mask Salesman is a travelling mask salesman that also appeared to be in Ocarina of Time, though their did not seem to be anything strange about him. The Happy Mask Salesman has no known past. He seems to be Hylian, but their are suggestions that he is not human at all. This is is supported because of his many strange abilities, such as being able to conjure large objects from nowhere (his piano from the beginning of Majora's Mask), and how he said he was following Link, but he was not even seen. This implies that he could possibly go invisible. Some people may note his temper and mood swings, but I find this normal, seeing that many people have large tempers. Though he may not seem human, he is not evil. He was scared of the damage Majora's Mask could cause, and was happy when told that the spirit within the mask was driven away.

Perhaps the biggest mystery surrounding the Happy Mask Salesman is how he obtained Majora's Mask. He seems to be the only one in the whole game who knows about this Ancient Tribe that once held the mask. This means he could be a descendant of them, which also explains his personal need to keep the mask, even after the evil left it. He can also do magic, and the Ancient Tribe are said to be magic-doers. Some say he is a spirit alike the children on the moon (seen later in the game). I do not believe this. The Moon Children are, well, children. If they are spirits, they do not grow. I believe that the Moon Children are spirits, but the Happy Mask Salesman is a powerful, non-human.

I hope everyone liked all the changes I made to the site. I went through a lot of trouble to do it. If anyone has any comments to make, don't hesitate and contact me or comment below. Something else I need to point out is that the "followers" gadget and "search" gadget may not be working, so please be patient until I fix them. And in case know one realized, I also made a new "contact Zelda Realm" page to make it easier for anyone who wants to speak to me. Thanks for reading!
