Wind Waker - Wind Gods

Hello everybody! It's been a long while since I last had a theory post, so I have a new one for you today regarding the Wind Gods from the Wind Waker. You probably don't know who I'm talking about now, so read on a bit more.

The Wind Gods are the frog-like creatures in Wind Waker that you find in Dragon Roost Island, a bit on the edges of it. You find two monuments (one broken, for reasons we will discuss) and when you step up to it, the first Wind God, Zephos, introduces himself to you. Later on in the game, you meet Cyclos. Now the big question that all Zelda theorists ask about these gods, what are their positions of power? What theorists mean by this, what exactly are these gods classified as? Aren't there only the three main goddesses? Well, yes. The three goddesses created everything in the Zelda universe as we know it, and must have created these "gods" more as guardians, controllers of the wind and creations that must withhold the state and power of the wind.
Of course, these gods do have abnormal powers, but Cyclos simply proves the fact that they are not perfect creations when he goes into rage and causes cyclones to occur all over the Great Sea when his monument breaks. But how did it break? Maybe something simple, a couple of Rito kids playing around the island, they accidentally break it, then never speak of it again. Yeah, I don't think it was something serious. Otherwise, Zephos would surely have mentioned it to Link.

If anyone has any comments, do hesitate to mention it below. I do read all comments, although I may not reply to all. I'm currently waiting on the response of a potential new staff member, so you guys should expect some more activity on the site. Anyways, remember to follow the site and drop me message if you need anything, and remember to check out the YouTube channel once in while. Thanks for reading!
