WHY Link had to drain the water from Kakariko well in OoT? He knows that if he done that, the demons could escape! It's wrote in the player guide:

Sheik said he would work on putting out the fire, and (s)he ordered Link to stop the subterranean demons.Since the town's windmill regulated the well's water level, Link started by interrogating the organ-grinder in the mill. The well had gone dry, enabling the demons to escape, and the man blamed it on a ten-years-old who played ocarina. The grinder did not reconize that the persone questionning him was the culprit all grown up, so Link brandished his ocarina to jar the man's memory. Reminded of the Song os Storms, the grinder played it for Link, who revisited the Temple of Time to undo the past. (...) young Link returned to the windmill to play his new song.

And he freed all the demons trapped in the well! Why?

He freed the demons to obtain the Lens of Truth which was required to get through the Shadow Temple and ultimately the Shadow Medallion.

T'was a necessary evil.

Actually, the game never says the water had anything to do with the seal on Bongo Bongo. This is just NOA making up crap again.

I don't think so: Bongo Bongo is the leader of the demons who were trapped in the well.

You can see it get out of the well when you go to Kakariko after completing the Water temple. It's the green mass and purple mass.

A terrible thing has happened! The evil shadow spirit has been released! Impa, the leader of Kakariko Village, had sealed the evil shadow spirit in the bottom of the well.... But the force of the evil spirit got so strong, the seal of the well broke, and it escaped into the world!!


Shadow Spirit = Bongo Bongo.

She doesn't even mention any "demons"...

The official player's guide mention it.

Ok, it was for gettin the Lens of Truth, but look at that:

Though the Song of Storms had drained the well, water still flooded into some of its dungeons. In one hall stood a monstrous statue that had water spouting from it gaping mouth. Link needed to drain the water (...).

Why Link had to drain again the water from the statue?

Actually, Impa must have sealed Bongo-Bongo in the well after you drain it as a child - hence the wall at the bottom as an adult. Draining the water just lets you get to the rooms inside; it wasn't keeping anything too badly evil in there. (Just stuff like Dead Hands that Link beats anyway).

so where the demons of the shadow temple are coming from?

Time travel rules seemed to go all over the place, in this case it seemed like the spirit was already released in the future, so Link might as well have gone back and let it go in the first place, to get the item he needed to deal with it permanently in the future.. Though I suppose the bigger deal in the future was awakening the sage, not killing bongo bongo.. and then again, yeah, it's possible the well draining had nothing to do with the seal..

Ignore the player's guide. While it may give some information it is not a completely reliable source.

The in-game text has no mentions of demons being in the well until adulthood, and that is AFTER there's a huge stone wall put down there, and after Ganondorf has taken over (and it's his fault there are monsters all over the place).

Basically, when Young Link drains and visits the well, there are only a few nasty monsters there, no 'demons'. Bongo Bongo probably originally came from the Shadow Temple, but Impa managed to seal it in the well at some point during the seven years Link was 'out of it'. Hence the frickin' huge wall thing.

Then it escapes, attacks Kakariko in revenge, and returns to the Shadow Temple.

I seriously doubt that *water* is going to hold back a demon. Besides, if that was all that held back Bongo Bongo, why did it wait seven years until it attacked?

...Link didn't release any 'demons' in the past - he went into the well defeated the monsters and got the Lens of Truth. Bongo Bongo is the only 'demon' and it came from the Shadow Temple, not the well.

Ganondorf was releasing/creating all the monsters in OoT, not Link.

I just now realized the connection between the static blob that comes out of ht well, and the static blob that Bongo Bongo turns into....

Wow I'm dumb.
