Crazy Things I Believe
- Gorons prefer metal ores to ordinary rocks. Gorons who eat large amounts of metal ores are able to grow to enormous sizes as the metal reinforces their skeletons. Medigoron and Biggoron from Ocarina of Time are both swordsmiths who would logically have additional access to metal ores, and Biggoron from Minish Cap likes snacking on shields. Gorons wouldn't be the only Hyrulean creatures that eat metal, Like Likes eat shields.
- The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap is the first Legend of Zelda game, chronologically. It tells the origin story of Vaati, who appears to predate Ganondorf's birth somewhat before Ocarina of Time, and adds Link's distinctive Minish-like cap to his standard outfit for apparently the first time. The Minish are apparently also responsible for hiding things around Hyrule in bushes and clay pots to be found in the rest of the series. The Minish, except for Vaati, would all have moved back out of Hyrule by the time the other games take place.
- Stallord is the reanimated skeleton of Onox's Dark Dragon form. They look practically identical and Onox has a connection to the Gerudo, while Stallord is in the Gerudo Desert.
- Phantom Shadow Beast Bongo Bongo is a Twili, or rather an ancestor of the Twili we see in Twilight Princess. The ship Link takes to get to Bongo Bongo's lair is, in a shortcut in the first reaper statue room, said to travel to another world, and he is referred to as a Shadow beast in his description. This would mean two things:
- Dead Hand, before he died and was reborn as a monster, was the original owner of the Lens of Truth. He was guarding it after all. His multiple grasping hands and enormous mouth indicate he was greedy and used the lens to cheat at gambling games, which led to glasses being outlawed at the Treasure Chest Shop in Hyrule Castle Town Market, as revealed by the gossip stones.
- Telma from Twilight Princess and Malon from Lon Lon Ranch have Gerudo blood. The Gerudo apparently reproduce by going to Hyrule Castle Town to look for boyfriends (as revealed by a Gossip Stone) and red hair is otherwise extremely rare in Hyrule. Talon confusingly comments to Link in Ocarina of Time that Malon's mother may be a Gerudo, he otherwise appears to be a single parent. Jolene and Joanne from Phantom Hourglass are not Gerudo, as Jolene just like to dress up like the Gerudo sea pirates.
