Ok! Ok! I'm done being stupid. He doesn' die. Anyway! Why can't the restrict and subdue part be about sending him to the TR? Isn't that like trying to subdue him? Why would they refer to the execution as a "subdue" or "restrict" when they are clearly trying to "eliminate"? That's my point.
STOP REFERRING TO THE NOA MISTRANSLATION! The Sages overestimated their ability to CONTROL the evil magic, according to the original Japanese script. "Control" means "to restrict" or "to subdue"; it can only refer to the Sages having captured Ganondorf.I think to a common person that would mean he had more power then they expected. Which-is-what-it pretty much means. Which is why the TR didn't hold him like they had thought. HA!
]Are you honestly trying to say the term "overestimated our power" would mean "We should have checked if Ganondorf had the Triforce before we attempted to off him" to anyone but a timeline theorist such as yourself?
The TR did hold him. Ganondorf said near the end of TP, "their anguish was my nourishment." That pretty much says he was subdued or something until the Twili awoke him..
