Yeah, every Link, except for the one from OoT and MM, and the one from Zelda 1 & 2, and the WW and PH one, is a new and seperate Link in each game. But they're all decended from the ones who came before. Who, I think, is desended from the original hero, Gustal/Gustav(sp?), the Hero of Men. Who is also the original, or atleast earliest know, King of Hyrule. Which could make Zelda and Link related since they're both of Hyrulian royal blood.
Good thing they never got too romantic, b/c that would be gross if they indeed were related. Which makes me wonder...
Let's say they are related. They both possess the power of the Triforce and only very special people can wield the Triforce. So if Ganon has the Triforce aswell, maybe he's related to Gustav too.
It would definately be interesting if they made a game about Gustal. It would probably clear up alot about the history and timeline of Zelda.
You know what I don't get? If some of these games take place hundreds of years between each other, why is there no technological evolution. I've been thinking about this since WW. The Kokiri evolved in to little tree guys and either the Gorons or Zoras evolved into bird people. I'm not sure which one it was, it's been a few years since I've played it. I think they said in the game the desended from Gorons, which is back up by them living on a volcano with a dragon. But that seems unlikely since Gorons were big, heavy, rock people. And there are actual gorons in the game. Which makes me think they're Zoras, b/c the leap fron finned fish to feathered foul is more local, and you don't see any Zoras in the water
world of WW.
What was talking about? Oh right, evolution. There's oviously natural evolution in the series, but what about technolgical? We've seen technology in the games, but it's not reflected very much by the people. They don't seem to be making very big jumps. There's the telescopes we see in MM and WW. The advancement in boats and ships from TP to WW. The Tingle Tuner has got to be some kind of electronic. Maybe Tingle is from the future.
The appearance on cannons in TP and WW. But the people of Hyrule still seem to left in the dark ages. Don't get be wrong, I don't want to see Link's Master Sword become a light saber, or his hook shot become a Samus-style grapple beam. But I would like to see something new and different in the next game. How long will we be stuck with the same old iron boots and bow. You know, now that I think about it, maybe they have advanced a little bit. But what I don't like is how they're moving away from magic. Link doesn't seem to have as many magical powers as he did in OoT and MM. I mean, he doesn't even have a magic meter. I think this is the first time since the original LoZ on the NES Link hasn't had one.
