One, we know it has some sort of sacred power, two, only the royal family seems to know about it, and three, it was brought to Hyrule from another realm. Hmmm, I wonder what ever could it be.....
1) Well dur, every plot device is sacred.
2) If only the royal family knows about it, how can it be an ancient LEGEND? A legend requires itself to be widespread.
Besides, the light force isn't neccessarily from another realm. All we know is that the minish gave it to the hero. They could have picked it up off of the floor for all we know.
Good point. Or MAYBE they made it. They made the Wishing Cap, another plot device. and the Picori Blade.
No one knows if the Minish Realm and the Sacred Realm are one in the same. The Minish Realm opens every hundred years, but the Sacred Realm does not do this as we know of. Doesn't sound like a connection to me anyways.
Exactly. The way they describe the Sacred Realm, it's a secret hiding place, devoid of life, or something like that. And if they were the same, why didn't the Minish use it to make everyone in the universe happy? That IS their goal after all. and they're not Sages. I'm sure they wouldn't care about the cosmic ramifications of their actions or whatever Zythe-style excuse someone might bring up.
This statment makes it clear that she does not have all of the light force. Now if this was the Triforce, or a piece of the Triforce, that means that Link destroyed Vaati and the a piece of the Triforce! Do you really think that Link destroyed a piece of the Triforce? I wouldn't think so, and Vaati did have a lot of the light force's powers. As Link and Zelda leave the crumbling castle and try to find safe haven in the sanctuary Vaati stops them and states this to Link:
Good points. Also, do you think a guy with a hat can steal a divine relic described as only able to be taken when the Triforce parts are gathered, the owner gives it up willingly, or the owner dies? And even if the Triforce peices weren't destroyed, they wouldn't go to the Sacred Realm unless the whole Triforce is assembled and dismissed. Otherwise they sit idly like Courage peices in TWW.
Vaati couldn't believe that he was beaten while having extracted most of the light force from Zelda. How do I know that he extracted most of it? Well if the third toll of the bell is sounded then Vaati has consumed the entire light force, but only two bells sound by the time Link gets there, meaning Vaati had 2/3 of the light force power.
Honestly does anyone truly think that Vaati could have done that to the Triforce? I think not.
Exactly. I don't care if he has a Wishing Hat. the Triforce CAN'T be stolen. Especially if Zelda supposedly has the whole Triforce, as it's supposed to serve her as long as she LIVES. She's only stone. she isn't dead.
No, I don't think that link destroyed the Triforce. Ganon had the Triforce in LTTP, and killing him didn't destroy the Triforce, so why should it be different with Vaati? The Hylians at that time obviously didn't yet know that the Triforce/Light Force was an indestructable power.
Ganon's Triforce was in another room, in the Sacred Realm. If it was Vaati's position, the Triforce would of hovered over his ashes like the Triforce of Power did for Ganon in LOZ
She didn't know what it could do. There is no evidence that the Light Force had been used prior to MC, save for the Hero of Man, but it never states that they knew how it worked (as in, granting the holder's wish).
This is irrevelent. When someone obtains the Triforce, It tells them telepathically something along the lines of "If Thou has a desire, simply grasp the Golden Power and wish for it" I don't know what it said exactly, but it's close enough. And even if it didn't, since Zelda was born with it, Her wishes would still be granted since the Triforce grants someone's greatest desires automatically by mere contact.
Now let me ask this question: can anyone else argue that the Minish Realm is the Sacred Realm? And if they can, is there any proof backing it up? I want to see if that issue is still alive and kicking.
No, they can't. If this was the case, why would Rauru be needed to guard the Triforce? The Minish should be able to do it. and if the Minish did live in the Sacred Realm, then wouldn't they ask Link for protection againest Ganon's forces or something in LTTP? Or wouldn't there ATLEAST Be Minish scuttering around on the ground in the Four Sword palace as backround or something?
