The only non-canon manual is the SNES American ALttP manual, all of the other ones are canon, and really don't differ very much from the Japanese originals, even the NES games didn't make stuff up in the manual like the ALttP manual did.

Well, for the longest time the SNES manual for ALttP was the only version of the Imprisoning War story available, and the idea that OoT was the Imprisoning War was pretty workable up until TP came out.

And even among people like Lex, nobody takes the SNES version manual as canon anymore. I think that Volvagia_Slayer guy mentioned a couple pages back uses it for some weird "two Master Swords" theory to explain away the Master Sword being buried at the bottom of the ocean in TWW, but he's a single-timeliner, too.


Are you refering to that Ign theory a few pages back? My friend and I were looking at that sunday(and person's comments on that) and we were wondering if these guys actually played the game or just read the back of the box and the manual. Kooky doesn't even begin to describe that theory.

The two Master Swords idea came about because the origin of the MS in the SNES manual was different from the one given in TP. The person apparently wasn't aware that the origins are consistent in Japanese.

I was refering to that whole ign thread. Not just the MS part. Puting that IGN topic here under "Kooky theories" is way to nice.

This doesn't deal with any kooky theories, but since I made a link before I just thought I'd provide an update: Lex is apparently trying to downplay the entire mirror discussion on ZU and he's seemingly trying to run off.

Anyway, the IGN forums are a lost cause. They make no sense at all and disregard everything that doesn't match up with their theories. It's actually rather sickening.

After the Wii game was announced, they assumed it was a sequel to OoT/MM with the same Link because of his hair. Yes. They based their timeline placement of an upcoming game with a plot we know nothing about on Link's hairstyle in the concept art.

And then there are those who want to say that Termina is just a neighboring country to Hyrule and disregard the manual if it says it's a parallel universe. I see that one a lot, mostly among people who either never read the manual or bought the game used and it came with no manual. The IGN Zelda boards also gave birth to Joe_Cracker, the lunatic fan who tried to make an animated movie based on the cartoon series.

Who would want to make a movie based on that cartoon? Honestly. That is one of the stupidest things I've ever heard of. Another lost case that I've seen is Hyrule.net. I swear something is wrong with the people there as there are a lot of splitests that still place TP between OOT and TWW even when it's confirmed to be parallel to TWW and some don't even count TWW as canon because of the graphics. Whatever any of you here do stay away from there at all costs unless you want to damage your brain.

Here is a condensed version of the Joe_Cracker saga. It's hilarious.

My favourive kooky theory is that there is a split timeline. Oh, but I also like the one where The Minish Cap goes first in the timeline. But, the one about the Triforce being obtainable in Ocarina of Time and that you can enter the Temple of Light while playing is a damn good one, too. Wow, I can't decide. :blink:

To quell what I posted earlier, I read a lot of Miyamoto and Aonuma's interviews and the statements they made regarding the timeline did insist a split-timeline. I admit, this is a ghey finding, but it is very apparent. However, according to what the creators said, Minish Cap does not go anywhere near the Ocarina of Time, before or after. Ocarina of Time is still very first.

Also, I will continue my project concerning a single timeline theory. I will handle the rest once it is completed.

The Split Timeline wouldn't count as a kooky theory, as it's canonical, according to the creators.
