Why would they execute Ganondorf unless Link told Zelda?

Zelda was the one who played the Ocarina and reset time. She could have left her own memories alone so that she could produce enough evidence to convince the King to have Ganondorf executed, thus 'fixing her mistakes' from the first time through (where she brought Link into the mess) and 'bringing peace to Hyrule' in the process.

No,because the Zelda in the Child Timeline is not the same Zelda in the Adult Timeline. The timeline split created 2 Links,2 Zeldas,and 2 Ganondorfs. I know,it's confusing isn't it? The timelines are a mess.

Enniji Arouma? More like Eiji Aonuma! Just because he's Japanese doesn't mean you can jumble a bunch of letters together and think that's his name.

There aren't many games that show you something on the title screen that is completely optional in the game, that I think says a lot about Ocarina. The ending doesn't bother me, it was getting there that was important for me. My favourite dungeon I think was Forest Temple, but I've not played it in ages. I prefer Ocarina's idea of Link having a preordained destiny rather than the humble guy achieving greatness in Twilight. Princess Ruto still freaks me out though (she's a fish for goodness sake).

ah, i see what you mean. my bad. in that case, Zelda had Link under her power (along with the Ocarina in her hands) for an unspecified period of time during the ending. She also had powers as the seventh Sage and the bearer of the Triforce of Wisdom; we have no real idea of what she could or could not have done during the end sequence to prepare herself in the Child timeline to have Ganondorf executed.

also, there is a problem with the Child/Adult timelines theory -- Link initially disappears from the Child timeline after Ganondorf has stolen Zelda away from the castle, after she has thrown him the Ocarina of Time. with them meeting again, Link has not been thrown back into the original Child timeline at the end of the game if they show him meeting her in the garden again; if he has been put back in at the beginning of everything, he has been thrown into yet another timeline.

had he been returned to the original Child timeline, it would have to have been done at the time of his original disappearance to avoid a paradox, and at that point it would have been too late. Ganondorf would still be as powerful as he had been the first time around, and still as unstoppable. There is also the problem of the Deku Tree; it dies before Link goes to Hyrule, and though Link killed the monster inside there is no saving the Great Deku Tree. There are still going to be problems with Link's childhood thanks to Ganondorf's evil if he is sent back to the beginning, there will be no reward of 'regaining his lost years' or 'returning home' unless Adult Zelda does something drastic with the new timeline she creates for him.

What!? You mean you can skip getting the Ocarina of Time and just use the Fairy Ocarina the entire game!? I need to do a Youtube walkthrough of Oot while doing crazy stuff in the future.

@SuperSonic
I was referring to Link riding Epona accross Hyrule field on the title screen. You don't need the horse to complete the game.

@ChickenBrutus
Tell me about it, I had a couple of shots of Chateau Romani and woke up next to Tingle...

Would you rather wake up next to Tingle or Rosie in S&M? I want a serious answer and your reasoning.

Goodness, Plato didn't have to deal with questions like this. Right, er, I would have to go with Tingle. He is clearly very lonely, so I think he would give you all his attention. Also caravan holidays would go very smoothly as Tingle would always have the appropriate map. Tingle repeating his magic words over and over would still be funnier than Rosie.

I hope future employers aren't reading this.

Ocarina of Time is probably the reason why I'm here posting comments when I should be asleep. It is the game that made me fall in love with gaming and made me realize that a video game can compete with films and books in terms of cultural influence. It influenced me as a person and I think it's perfect.

Cheers to that...

I just LOVE EVERYTHING about Zelda Ocarina of Time; same goes for Twilight Princess!! Both are my top #2 favorites in the series for millions of reasons... but the sole #1 reason is because they're just TRULY EPIC!! Everything boils down to the story, characters, music, awesome graphics & amazing gameplay!!

And Twilight Princess is actually one of the first Zelda games I've ever kept count on how many times I've beat it; I'm working on my 10th run of TP... (to keep me busy while I wait for May 18th & to see if Majora's Mask will be our #300 VC game... because I already bought the points for it but won't open them & imput the code until then)!
And FYI; my favorites out of both are:

Its a toss up for which race is my favorite; because I love both Gorons & Zora's equally!! Gorons in OoT & MM better though, even TP as well!! And my only favorite reason why I love the Zora's in TP are because of Rutella, Ralis, & the remixed music of the Serenade of Water!!
And its hard to choose which favorite temples & bosses but here's my favorite order:

Ocarina of Time:
Water Temple is #1 (I like listening to my favorite BSB & Keith Urban CD's while playing & seeing Ruto flirt with Link as a sexy adult)!

Twilight Princess
Snowpeak Ruins #1; being I love the atmosphere & scene where Yeta transforms into Blittzetta... & Yeto & his humming while making gormet soup!
But that scene after the Arbiter Ground & seeing Ganondorf being banished (ALWAYS LOVE HIS INSANE FACE) TAKES THE CAKE!!

It's alright, one of the better Zeldas. I prefer ALttP.

When I was younger, I thought it was an awesome ending. Slashing Ganon for the final time was a great moment!

Well,I personally think Zelda send Link back before almost everything happened. The Adult Zelda seemed to had created a time paradox. Everything seemed reset in the timeline,except for the fact Link,Zelda,and Ganondorf had the Triforce pieces. That part puzzles me the most. I guess when their future selves recieved the Triforce,their past selves received it too.

But anyway,I hope the Zelda movie is good and not horrible like the CDi Zeldas. Personally,I think a Zelda TV show would be better. Because,there is only so much of the Zelda story you can fit into a movie. But a TV show,you can fit as much of the storyline as you want. Also,what does everybody think about Nintendo adding voice acting in future Zelda games?
I personally would love to see it.
