Metoid has always had an order, since the Return of Samus came out. It's never been confusing at all. Except for maybe Prime, considering that's more of a sidestory.

Ah, Mario storyline is so much simpler: "The order they are released in, is THE order."

Except, you know, for Yoshi's Island.

Hate to get OT, but it was debated for a while, it was confirmed a while ago to go with the release of the Prime 2 demo. Fusion is last, Prime 1 & 2 (& DS) are slap bang in the middle before Super Metroid. After number 1 (NES) there are the other two (GB) before Prime 1.

Really? huh, I always thought the order was Metroid (Zero Mission), Prime, Prime 2, Metroid 2, Super Metroid (3) and Finally Fusion. Shows how much I know.

Yeesh, I really need to play the Oracle games through, I never knew that there was a Tingle in them.

Is that not what I said, about Metroid that is? Fusion definately goes last.

And the thing about Yoshi's island is true, unless Bowser, Mario and Luigi gave their kids all their own names.

We're kind of going OT, maybe an Admin can split this thread into Legend of the Fairy debate and Metroid/Mario debate like in the Gamehiker section.

When was there ever a debate about the Metroid order? The first four games each referenced the previous, and Prime was said to happen between Metroid and Return of Samus.

The "Official" in their name implies they are.

But then again, they said that LTTP is last in the Zelda series chronologically.

I hate when people edit their posts to make it so your posts don't make sense. Argh, Wolf O'Donnel!

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


I'm sorry, it's just that I thought up of something else to say and didn't want to double post. I had no idea you were going to post so soon, otherwise I wouldn't have done it.

BTW, it's O'Donnell, and just call me Wolf. Much easier to type out.

You know how Tingle wants to be a fairy? Well maybe that did happen for the very first Tingle and he became.... Navi. That would explain why she's so annoying :lol:

Yeah, and there's undoubtable proof in FSA (Ganon created the Deku Scrubs) that it takes place before OoT. There's only one problem, though. There's a slight difference between faeries and forest fairies. Forest fairies are small, spiritual beings dressed in green (like the Kokiris). I don't know how much in the myth that is in the games, but it's said that they had spiritual dances and afterwards mushrooms grew where they had danced. That explains why there are mushrooms in the Lost Woods. ;) This is also one of the reasons why I use the classic English word faerie instead of fairy when talking about those tiny, winged beings.

There are some things that Nintendo has changed, though. Because I haven't heard anything about the forest fairies from Norse mythology having guardian faeries, and according too the Legend of the Fairies in TWW they only lives for thousands of years. They're not completely immortal. I at least think the forest fairies from Norse mythology were immortal, like the Elves.

Really though, it doesn't make much sense, we know for a fact that Termina is in a parallel dimension, and that there is a very small chance of somebody from Termina coming to Hyrule, but Tingle is also in the FSA, which is a bit confusing. Of course we could say that because there is more or less an altered version of each person in Hyrule living in Termina that there are also two copies of Tingle, of course, that's taking a lot of liberties. Any better explanation? I'm confused...


Then how can it be that Link managed to return to Hyrule? There is evidence that he do return, at the end of the credits. Aside of that, when you meet the Skull Kid in the woods he has already been in Termina. That flashback when he meets Tatl and Tael is proof of that. ;)

Heh, maybe at the end MM, Tingle provided Link a map back to Hyrule.

Link couldn't remember the door at the bottom of the Clock Tower? ;)

Well, but it clearly seems like he can't return following the same path he used to arrive to Termina, remember he fell into a void at the beginning of the game, so maybe Masamune's theory is right.

Another theory I have about Majora's Mask ending is that, after saving Termina, Link plays again the Ocarina of Time and returns in time, the only difference is that this time Talt doesn't scare Epona and lets him go, without saving Termina, it's a sad story though, but maybe there's no way out of Termina, so Link chose to do that.

Maybe when the Gods sought to return Link to Hyrule, they saw too green-clothed people and sent back Tingle! This is just me joking around but it would be highly comedic.
