      @Jlipper his facts are bullshit.. he doesn't even admit to being wrong. Link isn't dead, Pokemon isn't Animal abuse, and Mario isn't a psychopath. He constantly umdermines everyone of his theories (especially the Mario is mental) whenever he puts out a new theories. Be honest with me do you really care that the barrel roll from star fox is an aileron roll or do you just care about the fact that his theories are bullshit and pointless and ruins any game that he comes across. For fucks sake he makes hater response videos on youtubers who make honest corrections to his theories. Besides he doesn't make up these theories. The link is dead theory was made by something else and it wouldn't surprise me if he completely stole other people's ideas. Sure his videos are filled with facts but most of them are incorrect and plagiarising other creators

        Matpat I love youre theory, I love every aspect of it... Except for obe tiny little detail. At the end of HW all the damage is undone, showing that non of the elements of the different timelines stayed behind. Tgen again you could count linkles part of the story which shows that even after the to timelines returned to normal, most of the monsters stayed behind instead of going back to there timelines. This COULD help the theory but it's too little thou, however youre theory has a strong basis and it actually makes a lot of sense. Not to mention that Nintendo themselves are constantly declaring non-canon most of there games because they sense ( something that ive have noticed, please do not feel ofended) and would probably take away the fun of majing people analize and appreciate there games but that's just my opinion. Anywho great job!

          I found something in the first breath of the wild, there is a korok seed on the rocky beach north of the akkala ancient lab and south of the north laberynth island. Hidden under some rubble there is a korok seed and behind that is what looks like the entrance to a cave. Could this be the entrance to the cave system under hyrule we see in the trailer for the next game?

              I forgot the ghost of link in twilight does teach you the songs from majora’s mask but it still links up with one of my theories on majora’s that it’s all a dream and he goes on countless journeys after majora’s

              Until I realized that the place you’ve been saving a place called terminal the hole time omg how obvious

                            In BOTW the evidence of Link to the past is found next to the Camel beast. The portal is found there. I really like this theory a lot.

                                          Finally, been waiting for someone to make the connection with Hyrule warriors for years now. *sniffles* thank you. I've seen just about every timeline theory to date and not one has even mentioned Hyrule Warriors. I think Hyrule warriors should be cannon and spirit tracks removed, cause just no. and while we are on the topic, uncanonize triforce heroes too.

                                                While i agree with the timeline you have presented for the most part i have one problem with it. The Ganondorf from The child timeline ( aka Twilight princess) is dead. So how can he appear in Hyrule warrior? Not trying to be mean but I would really like to hear your on how that would work.

                                                    Can’t only one reincarnation exist at a time? There’s only one Link, so Linkle isn’t a reincarnated heroine. Of course we know Yink and Tink exist in Warriors, but they’re from different universes. Linkle isn’t. Don’t get me wrong, a female Link would definitely be something, but I don’t think that’s the case this time around.

I could be completely wrong and even if I am right I don’t think that it would throw off your theory by much, if at all, but didn’t Ruto become a sage along with Zelda in Ocarina if Time?

For years I have always told people that Hyrule Warrior should be canon. I've always believed that HW could solve it all. The usual argument i get is that Aonuma said its part of a separate dimension. But if its part of a separate dimension, so what? Isnt the point of a convergence of timelines that it does create one new timeline/dimension? I see no reason why it cant be canon. I love the Zelda series, and Hyrule Warriors is one of my favorites in the series. I dislike how quickly people were willing to dismiss it. In any case, Im very happy to know that at least this theory is being entertained a bit :)
