You didn't elaborate on why your points were true. If I saw something untrue, I said so. I don't see why I should explain why it's untrue if it's just blatantly untrue. I don't have time to waste to refute unsubstantiated claims. o.o
Not to be a jerk, Fyxe, but I like how for most of the replies to my post, you just said, "No, it doesn't," but you didn't elaborate on why you disagree with me.
Yes, but... I get bored sometimes. XP
Far be it from me to tell me that you must have a reason to disagree, but I have seen you debate before, and I know that you are above arguements that are basically equal to "Nuh-uh!!! " I am not trying to insult you. I am saying that I know for a fact that you can do better than that.
No, you didn't, but you can't claim it's a retcon based on evidence that *requires* it to be a retcon.
It has to me mentioned to be present? Maybe I misunderstand the definition of retcon.
As much as I love Scrubs, this isn't really comparible, because it explains itself immediately. You're saying it's a retcon despite the fact that it may not be. That bit in Scrubs HAS to be a retcon because they *make* it one. Your evidence on the Light Force bit being a retcon is based upon the theory that it already is a retcon. It's self-fulfilling, and not reasonable.
Hahahah! I just remembered the perfect example for this. Near the end of season 5 of the TV series Scrubs, the main character J.D. meets Dr. Kim Briggs. She has supposedly been at Sacred Heart Hospital (the series' main setting) since before the show even began (back in 2001), but she makes her first appearance in this episode. Turk (J.D.'s best friend) points out to J.D. that even though Dr. Briggs has never been seen or mentioned up until this point in the series, she has been at the hospital all along. The episodes shows several flashbacks to previous episodes, and Dr. Briggs is superimposed into old snippets of episodes from the past (as a joke, of course).
No, but by the same token, you can't deny that it might imply that the Light Force and the Triforce are one and the same. And there's actually more evidence for that. I'm not saying it's the case, but it might be.
To answer your question, no the light force has never been mentioned before TMC, but that definitely doesn't mean that it couldn't have just been there all along.
Zelda states that the door to the Minish's world opens every 100 years. How would they know this if it's only ever opened once before? The Minish also seem very at home in Hyrule, like they're used to the door opening every now and again and crossing between the worlds.
Where does TMC imply that TMC's backstory isn't the first time that the Minish have come to Hyrule?
Um, firstly, because they're monsters. Usually 'argh, look out' is the natural reaction. Also, they say MORE dangerous, implying it's dangerous at other times.
Then why are the people like "OMFG MONSTERS!!!" whenever the chest is opened at the beginning of the game and monsters are all over Hyrule? There is a man or woman in Hyrule Town that says Hyrule has become more dangerous lately.
It's similar to Link's Awakening, where the number of monsters is increasing, so things are more dangerous, but nobody treats the monsters as completely unnatural, just nasty and the numbers are unexpected.
You're making up facts. Where is it said that no monsters like that existed anywhere?
Yes, a few monsters probably existed, like the Armos, but the Ropes, Keese, Octoroks, Keatons, etc. that we see come out of the chest were not present between TMC's backstory and TMC. The only reason I can see anyone saying anything differently would be because they don't like the facts and want to make some of their own.
What the heavenly fuck?
Yes, and all of the games can just be Tingle's dream, too, but you don't see me assuming that it happened just because it can happen, do you?
WHAT THE FUCK. Do you realise what you just said? You just said that no game can occur in the past because it can happen. By that logic, you are assuming that a game exists before OoT because it can happen. You're saying that's akin to saying that Tingle is dreaming it all.
See how stupid that is?
I can deny that every Rupee and every Heart in every bush was put there by the Minish, because it's never said that's the case. Also, you're the one who assumes the Minish have only been around for 100 years.
You can't just deny the facts given by TMC (that the Minish are the source of the rupees, hearts, etc. around Hyrule) and then not give a reason for it. I know that you are above that.
I'm sorry, but that's rubbish. By that logic, we are to assume that Zelda never moved from the Courtyard even once when Link was getting the Spiritual Stones. That's bad logic. Especially when based on the things I've already pointed out about the door being a regular thing.
If we are to use as little fan fiction/assumptions/w/etf you want to call it as possible, then the Minish only came to Hyrule twice.
As far as I know, there is only two types of Hylian, and only one is translatable, but oh well.
I just called it that because I thought that was the fan-given nickname for it. Whatever the Hylian is called that appears in TWW also appears on the books in the library in TMC.
I'm not saying I do know, but I don't think it's evidence enough to place TMC before OoT, which everyone seems to do.
You are missing the idea that every single piece of evidence wasn't neccisarily meant to be literal. It might just be the writers way of symbolically starting the green hat trend. The key word is might, though, since we are not the writers and do not know for sure what the purpose of Ezlo giving Link the green hat was. I am just saying not to claim that you know it wasn't supposed to mean anything since you were not a writer for TMC, either.
