Wind Waker - King of Red Lions

Hello again, readers! As I have figured out from the comments people put on my last article, it seems that I have some flaws in it. I sincerely apologize for this, as I have not played Wind Waker in a very long time, and I hope I can make up for it with this article. I also cancelled the Great Flood article, as no theory is required for it. Its facts are very straight-forward, and you can read the whole story on Zelda Wiki (you can find it's link in the Affiliates page).

The King of Red Lions is a talking boat that Link sails in Wind Waker. It (he) plays a very important role in the game as he is Link's main source of transportation. He also turns out to be Daphnes Nohansen Hyrule, king of Hyrule. Of course, Hyrule no longer exists in Wind Waker, as it is plunged deep under water away from humanity, so basically, the King of Red Lions is not really a king. It is unknown if this was the same king that ruled Hyrule in Ocarina of Time, but I have my share in this. First of all, the King of Red Lions must have been a king at one point, otherwise he would never even been named a king. Second of all, I mentioned in a previous article that I think the king of Hyrule from Ocarina of Time died already. I think that the King of Red Lions may have ruled in the time period between Ocarina of Time and Wind Waker, but as he has abnormal powers, he turned himself into a boat under an alias name when the Great Flood happened. So all in all, I say no, the King of Red Lions was not the king in Ocarina of Time. Another theory about the King is that he dies at the end of Wind Waker, and I support this. He clearly drowns in the water, he looked like he lost hope to live, too. So I think it's pretty clear that he dies.

So did I make up for the last article? I hope I did. Anyways, another important announcement I have is that I am currently looking for News Writers and Walkthrough Writers. Anyone interested, please contact me. The Zelda Realm need new staff with our growing popularity (we hit 3000 views today), and you could be a big contributor. So apply now!
