      Unless canon explicitly states that something happened to new hyrule I refuse to acknowledge breath of the shart as a continuation of the adult timeline, especially since they get rid of ganondorf for good. let zelda and link have a good time for once

        The more one compares botw map to AoL map. The more likely it is that BotW is downfall timeline.
        Spectacle rock being in Gerudo suggests that lesser Hyrule is swallowed up by the Gerudo desert. Coincidentally if you overlay botw gerudo with LoZ Hyrule and OoT Hyrule you wind up with level 9(quest 2), Ganons castle, and Yiga hideout in the same approximate location.
        Implying Ganon after killing Link stayed at the site of his final victory, after being defeated by LoZ Link, the Ganon cult of sheikah moved into the area.

                Not really, the lost woods is an explicitly magical forest that we have at least one canon example of moving. Death mountain also has the unique honor of being the only landmark with two separate locations sharing the name at the same time.
                BotWs death mountain has far more in common with Eldin Volcano from SS than all death mountains save TP which doesn’t line up with anything else in the series.

                While yes I certainly want to make maps. Spectacle rock has never before moved from death mountain, it is the most reliable landmark in the series. Combined with maze island, it’s not a far a jump to consider BotW Hyrule to be North Hyrule from AoL. Which specifically avoided Ganons wrath during the first 2 games.

                How is it cope to acknowledge when it’s called Hyrule it is Hyrule, and when it’s not called Hyrule it isn’t Hyrule? Death Mountain is a name reused all the time. Zelda 2 has two Death mountains on its map. 3 death mountains in one spot clearly doesn’t match any other depiction of death mountain. it is not the same death mountain.

              Arbiter's Grounds couldn't have been there before the split because at that point the desert was unexplored wasteland under the total control of the then hostile Gerudo, it most likely was built to imprison Ganondorf after he was captured and the Gerudo themselves either surrendered or got conquered.

              Ganondorf was laughing before getting petrified and after 10,000 years the landmass probably changed quite a bit.

                Yes, you can see triforces in the castle it is never shown to be something important in the lore. Link, Zelda, the King or any other in game npc ever mentions anything even slightly close to any faith to the original Hyrule religion. Why? Because Link and tetra Zelda only got a TL;DR from Daphness and fucked off to another land. They didn't even know shit about Hylia, they just built a new kingdom adopting the symbolism and thats it.

                No I’m arguing about spectacle rock, I don’t believe WW timeline makes sense for BotW, Zora and Gerudo are extinct in the WW timeline. I suppose one could argue that Sea Zora evolved into the shark Zora we see in BotW and the Gerudo having pointed ears may suggest an iteration made by Hylia/the goddesses. I maintain if it is not a unified timeline it’s in the downfall timeline.

                The knowledge of the Triforce isn't mentioned in BotW because it's not relevant to the story. Not all Zelda games are about the Triforce.

                The only thing to really speculate about the Triforce in BotW is that its powers are not enough to hold back Calamity Ganon, which would explain why nobody brings it up.

                True, but it is always relevant when Ganon is in the game, and now that we know that Hylia will be in TotK it is essentially confirmed that it is going to play a part. That is why I found it strange that in BotW it is seen as just a minor curiosity and only zelda has it.

        The "Era of Myth" is being left deliberately vague so that they don't have to give BotW a timeline placement. It's a way of soft-retconning the timeline split, leaving the theorycrafting community back to where they were before Hyrule Historia came out when it comes to the question of how OoT and LttP connect to each other.

      There's no official mention of the merge, but the official timeline on the Zelda website places Breath of the Wild at the end of all three timelines. Anyone with a brain would read this as being a soft reboot, a sign that says "Hey, the Zelda series is sort of starting over here. We might reference old stuff from a bunch of games, but the chances of us actually linking this new era to any of the old ones is needlessly slim." Timeline autists instead convince themselves that for everything to make sense, all the timelines need to have merged together. I kinda wish that was the case, though. When BotW was coming out I was hoping Calamity Ganon was the result of the three Ganons from each timeline being mashed together and going insane from all the power and memories he had accumulated, but I guess that would be too cool for this franchise.

        The Rito in BotW are visibly different from the WW Rito, and the Zora existing with their history intact means they didn't evolve into Rito

          Read the artbook for why. They wanted them both because it was cool. They made Revali, then went and made the rest in his image. Early plans for champions were Kokori, Zora, WW Rito, Gerudo and Goron.

            Okay, so there's no timeline merge because timeline adherence doesn't matter to the devs and they didn't want BotW to take place in any of them because it would limit their creative freedom

      All cope. It's like how everyone thinks OoT ends with multiple possibilities. The only thing that happens is that Zelda sends Link back to being a child after he had opened the temple of time doors, and she fled the castle, yet she's still in the castle. So we can only assume that Ganondorf gets into sacred realm

      Yeah, not every single game needs to be connected
      I feel like the 3D ones have a very organic timeline, though, because all of them (except BoTW) have some direct connection to OoT

      Skyward Sword --> OoT (child timeline) --> MM --> TP --> (thousand of years later) BoTW
      Skyward Sword --> OoT (adult timeline) --> WW

      The 2D timeline doesn't fit with the 3D one because Ocarina of Time is a retelling of the Imprisoning War and Twilight Princess is a retelling of A Link to the Past

      There's always been some chronology. LTTP was directly marketed as a prequel to the NES games, Ocarina was intended as a retelling of LTTP's backstory, and Aonuma established "Ocarina's ending splits in two" around the time Wind Waker came out.
      The Hyrule Historia timeline did pull that Defeated Hero timeline out of their ass largely because Twilight Princess just didn't work with the old 2D games at all.

    If you're trying to fit BotW into a timeline and coming up with some 'merged timeline' shit as an autistic headcanon for fun then power to you, nothing wrong with a bit of worldbuilding.
    But anyone who thinks Nintie actually sat down and had some big fucking board meeting where they discussed the super secret BOTW backstory where the timelines converged, or that Nintie gives anything resembling a shit about the timeline beyond a vague sense of some games happening after other games, is a fucking retard.

      I have a soft spot for Spirit Tracks and I quite like the Wind Waker timeline as the sort of 'advanced' timeline (WW itself obviously has a bit of an Age of Sail vibe to it) but I would really like another game where they just do another comfy medieval setting. At this point there being inexplicable neon lights on certain buildings just seems like a given but I didn't really like Skyward Sword and BotW just going full batshit with

    The way I see it; its not really about the timelines literally coming together, its that they all will deal with the event of calamity ganon.
    Like how a timeline where hitler won WW2; the sun will die and the world will perish far far far off in that future too.
    It's not to say literally all timelines with have sheika slate tech or whatever, but that calamity ganon will happen upon all of them.

      WW and TP are both sequels but only in the loose sense, MM is the actual follow-up and Ganondorf's fate ultimately doesn't matter given he returns in TotK

        bro what. the hero of time doesn't even exist in WW timeline unless he pulled the master sword and went back, (which he didn't, as the original master sword does not exist in WW).

        Wind Waker is actually the asspull, given the Adult Timeline was meant to segue into A Link to the Past. Majora is the first continuation of OoT Link's story and TP is continuing off of that

                Link had a piece of the Triforce when he was sent back. But he couldn't just take it to the child timeline where there was already a Triforce of Courage, so the Triforce decided to resolve the potential paradox by having the adult timeline piece stay behind (and explode for some reason) while the child timeline Triforce instantly gave its courage piece to Link. This also caused the wisdom and power pieces to get lonely and eventually jump to Zelda and Ganon. Or something like that.

                This is also why Zelda and Link were successful in warning the King in the Child Timeline. They had the Triforce pieces as proof. The King could no longer ignore Zelda's dreams, which were confirmed as visions. Twilight Princess confirming that Link came back to Hyrule, fought Ganondorf in the war again and then died without going back to see his family is all kinds of messed up though.

                Link immediately got the child timeline Triforce when he returned. Same with Zelda and Ganon, which is how the latter survived execution.

                the triforce is split in the child timeline because the triforce doesn't give a fuck about timelines
                once you have even a part of it, you have it for keeps
                ganondorf still had it at the end of oot, so that means zelda and link still had their respective pieces as well, so when link was sent back it time with the triforce of courage the other two pieces responded accordingly and went to zelda and ganondorf

      TP was really meant to be the sequel sequel to it, especially since the Hero of Time was actually in that game as a skeleton, and chronologically it covers events that happen both before and after Majora's Mask on the side of the timeline that Link goes back to
      But in reality they're pretty much two different sides of the same sequel, WW focuses on Ganondorf that was defeated, and TP is about what happens as a result of the Link that won

      It's more about how it reconfigured the mythology with Hylia's introduction resulting in them deemphasizing the Golden Goddesses going forward in favor of hard-coded Royal Family Divine Providence, Demise's curse removing Ganondorf's agency, and making the reincarnation motif really boring in the process.

        It had a surprisingly subdued role in the story and imagery of the game, all things considered. Obviously Zelda will call upon it and for the obligatory arrows, but other than that, kids playing BotW as their first Zelda don't even know what it is, it's not even mentioned by name, and the only representation we see of it is in the castle throne room. And maybe somewhere in the destroyed Hyrule Town, I guess.
        Not that it's bad considering the tone the game went for, but I know kids these days that just don't know any more (yet)

    ToTK will end with Ganondorf becoming Demise and being sealed by Link (the original hero) and Hylia (Zelda being reborn as a goddess), leading to Skyward Sword. It makes a lot of sense for the timeline to be an endless cycle of destruction that never ends
