You twisted every one of those examples. The Bulbins were attacking the village because it was one of the last places on the map still peaceful.
They wouldn't have kidnapped the kids if that were the only reason. There has to be some reason they did that, and looking for the Triforce is a reason that fits with the other games.
It is never stated why the Shadow Beasts capture Link, and one can draw their own conclusions.
Such as? Why lug him all the way there? The "it was just curious" argument holds no weight.
The power Midna wants to restore is the power of the goddesses, which can reside in someone regardless of owning a Triforce.
Okay, I'm trying to be patient with you guys but that's just stupid. You're making up a completely new concept simply because of some vague lines that could be interpreted in a variety of ways. So far everything I've said has some basis in the games. Yours is merely an interpretation that has no backing, at all. The fact that you accuse me of "twisting" my examples and then say this crap is ridiculous.
Ganondorf remaining inactive after his revival is due to the fact he had already become the king of light and dark, at least in his mind. He completed his goal. If he was looking for the other Triforces, he would have searched, as Raian has stated.
His behavior is no different in TWW or OoT, so that's a moot point. Furthermore, Zant AND Ganondorf both claim that they're goal is to do that, and that it hasn't happened. So you're falt-out wrong in this case.
Citing WW Link, or any Link as an example of the Triforce not granting immediate power is benign. Link is the character the player controls, if he gains omni-potency, then he wouldn’t need to lift a finger any longer in the dungeons and against bosses ho are meek in the face of the gods.
Then how about the fact that neither Ganondorf nor Zelda automatically gain omnipotence either. Really, there's little difference in any of them. You're grasping at straws here.
Ganondorf did not die after the first half of the battle in OOT, nor was he near death. He did not know how to control the power of the gods and therefore turned into a monster, and turned back when he was subdued. His is why the anon we see in OOT and TP is merely a Ganon hat this specific Ganondorf turns into when angry or whatever.
The Great Evil King Ganondorf...beaten by this kid?! (spits blood) Link....!
Without a strong, righteous mind, he could not control the power of the gods...and...Link, listen to me! This tower will collapse soon! With his last breath, Ganondorf is trying to crush us in the ruins of the tower! We need to hurry and escape! Please follow me!
Emphasis all mine.
You also seem to be implying that Ganondorf had somehow obtained the Triforce of Power before the execution scene, since he would have to for all of your statements to make sense. His is impossible since we know Ganonorf was brought to justice before conquering Hyrule. You state in passing at the end that “the door of time was open at the en of OOT”, although that has nothing to do with TP.
Yes, I'm saying that he could have gotten it when he did in OoT and that as long as Link stopped him before he actually conquered Hyrule the future could still change. I'll use an example of what I mean. Let's say you actually know how to travel through time. Then someone, lets call him G, murders a person named D. With your amazing time travelling powers you go back in time, but unfortunately you were only able to go back to a point after G bought the gun he was going to use. However, G had to learn how to use it first, giving you ample time to stop him. That's what I think happened here. Nothing I'm aware of contradicts this interpretation.
These statements are made of God and Win.
I didn't know conjecture with little basis in fact was made of God and Win, learn something new every day.
Like I keep saying, it is possible that the three have a connection to the very Triforce without physically possessing it. Alternatively, the Goddesses could each (hence the different triangles on their hands) have conferred their power to one of the three. Essentially that would make them living, breathing Triforces. And don't come and tell me that's not possible. It's the Gods. They can inbue their power in anything they please.
Problem is, in situations like this you need something to base this belief on. There is very little in the game that points to what you're saying being true. I could just use "the gods did it" to prove everything in a debate but I'd be considered a fool for doing so.
You stated that Triforce marks appear on hands of the chosen. There are three chosen ones in TP (Ganondorf, Link and Zelda). To differentiate them, the crest doesn't appear as an outline for each of them, it appears as individual pieces representing what they are chosen for. Ganondorf for power, Link for courage and Zelda for wisdom.
I'll say it again, anyone who possesses the Triforce in their own bodies rather than as an item is a chosen one
. TWW says as much.
If the Triforces contain the power of the gods, wouldn't they be omnipotent?
If you wrote a fictional story perhaps that would be true but it isn't in this case at all.
TP Ganondorf never entered the SR or accomplished anything, he was brought to justice before doing so because of his blindness.
That's not necessarily correct. In fact, if you go by what Jumbie says, the only thing that we can be positive of is that Ganondorf didn't conquer Hyrule. He could still have found his way into the Sacred Realm without actually ruling over it or Hyrule.
