To Penguin-The Tingle thing isn't really much to go by, as the Tingle brothers only appear in TMC in allusion to TWW, and there is nothing wrong with having all the other crap you just mentioned go in between.

Penquin-tingle is the comic relief, he isn't all that important, buit sure, you can go by the characters, but then you'd have to go by ALL the characters.

Trust me, Dark Nut. It's not bad to have the same timeline as someone else's. Trying to be different despite factual information is a MikePetersism, which is punishable by death =.=

The Wind Waker explains that people started dressing up like Tingle because the original Tingle helped the Hero of Time in Majora's Mask.

But since the Minish Cap comes before Majora's Mask, then there has to be some other explanation for their origin. Like time travel or the Worst Easter Egg Ever.

Seriously: Tingle is in the game for the sole purpose of annoying the people who hate him. Nothing more and nothing less. Tingle has been in every Zelda since Majora's Mask, but are we to assume they all take place afterwards? Besides, Tingle is from Terminia, but only one game takes place there. Tingle is an anomaly and a parodox, and IMO not something that one can consider when placing games in a timeline.

Yeah, because if something in-game contradicts with Chaltab's theory then it must be the game that's wrong.

Chaltab, you're bordering MikePeters-ing. Although I partially agree with you, you're approaching the Tingle problem all wrong.

Recycling characters is a bit annoying, though - it's clearly impossible for TWW, Oracles, FSA and TMC to all happen immediatey after each other with the same Tingle. So it's probably safe to assume that he's an easter egg in at least some of them. Or else immortal... Or a time traveller...

It's different people - just like Link. This is what The Wind Waker says on it:

It is said that long ago, a boy garbed in green known as the Hero of Time saved
this land. However, on a certain island, there is also the story of the fairy
who saved that hero...

It is said that the Hero of Time met the fairy in the midst of his travels.
The fairy appeared before the Hero, who had found himself lost in darkness.
With a mystic power, it would float in midair, dancing above his head like a
burst balloon.

After the fairy handed the lost Hero a map, it flew off as quickly as it had
appeared. Better able to foresee places of danger than the Hero, the fairy
marked them on a map. The Legend goes on to say the quest of the Hero of Time
was saved by this plump figure...

Fairies live for thousands of years... but this odd fairy was a bit different.
This mystical fairy was born near a lake, and when he met the Hero, he was but
35. Beyond that, there is little known about that fairy...

The little-known Legend of the Fairy's 35th Birthday
On one island they celebrate one's 35th birthday with a green coat and red
pants. They do this in the hopes of becoming like the legendary fairy, Tingle.

It's pushing it a bit, though. The legends state that a hero will rise whenever Hyrule is in danger. We can assume that there will be a royal family, often with a princess named due to the Legend of Zelda. It's acceptable to think there might be a great recurring evil called Ganondorf.
But a random 35 year old who wants to be a fairy and is reincarnated every time the hero is? Where's that in the legends? And Malon and Talon as well? (OoT, FSA, TMC).
Capcom should just stop reusing characters for no storyline reason. Tingle being in MM and TWW is fine - they're set in different universes, after all.

Tingle is not reincarnated and there is no form of destiny controlling the matter.

The original Tingle helped out the Hero of Time, the story of this got passed down through the generations and people started dressing up like him on their 35th birthday.

It's what the game says, so who are we to argue with it?

As for Malon and Talon and co I will agree that it is lazy recycling, I think we're supposed to assume that they're all descendants of previous versions. Notice that in the Oracle games they have round ears and not pointed ears.

well, isn't it so hard to believe that all souls in Hyrule are reincarnated? Omg... -.- and Tingle does SORTA help Link. kinda..and Malon is usually a love interest of his. not all reincarnations have to be legendary in proportion. and Showsni, don't blame Capcom >.> Nintendo started it.

But the Legend of the Fairy doesn't work...

Original Tingle was from Terminia and had nothing to do with helping save "This Land"... Obvioulsy that is what it is reffering too, but it is... not anachronistic but... anadimensional...

Again, I maintain that repeated characters are normally just Easter Eggs/ a lazy way to avoid creating new characters and can't be used to gauge the timeline. Do the Tingle brothers in Minish Cap mention anything about the first Tingle or the great sea era? They just sit there and collect kinstones.

If it must be explained by the story, I say that there is only Tingle brotherhood that travels through time--and the first Tingle is immortal.

Meh, he's a 35 year-old moron who wears his underwear on the outside. He is an easter egg to bug the people that hate him. They always give him the 'dumb' job of 'fusing kinstones' or 'making maps' and such. They could have picked villager #4 to do that. But, if you want, use tingle as proff, no skin of my nose. Actually, he HELPS my timeline (I think O.o) but i still hate him.....

Theres no reason they had to use Tingle in there at all. The Knistones thing could have been done with a completely different character. The fact that they put Tingle in there suggests to me that he comes after MM (and hence after OoT). Simple. Calling it just an easter egg is a bit naive.

It does work. Read it again. It speaks of the Hero of Time who *did* save 'this land' (Hyrule/Great Sea, see the opening legend of Wind Waker). THEN it talks about how the original Tingle saved him from being lost 'in darkness' (Termina).

I think it's a rather clear reference to Majora's Mask. It even gets the age of Tingle right.

He exagerated it. Remember how Tingle greets you when you first see him in the jail? It's the original Tingle; he's immortal and he exagerates the exploits of the 'first' Tingle (himself) to get followers.

The WW Tingle isn't the first Tingle. The first one is clearly the one in Termina.

Chaltab knows this, but Tingle lies and acts like he is immortal and that he WAS the first Tingle.

All the Tingles are messed up, especially the later ones. They're all deluded liars and thieves. They sure know lots about maps, though.
