The first panel is based on the instruction manual for The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Great game!

For the record, I don't give a rat's behind about the timeline of the Zelda series, official or not. It's more enjoyable that way.

This is actually commission that I did because I liked the guy's (Seth Marati's) idea. Hee hee.

LOL, pretty funny.  Although I actually have the Hyrule Historia and the Seven Wise Men mentioned in LttP are not the Seven Sages from OoT, despite what people seem to think.  HH mentions that the Imprisoning War takes place a few generations after the Sages are forced to lock Ganon away to prevent him from ravaging Hyrule.  Supposedly, though, the Seven Wise Men were descended from the original Seven Sages.

Although, to be honest, I still argue that LttP and the NES Zeldas don't fit in the timeline of Zelda very well at all.  Probably because (at least in my opinion, and strongly hinted at in HH), the idea of an overarching history was not Shigeru Miyamoto's to begin with (Miyamoto always said gameplay came first), but rather came into the picture with Eiji Aonuma, who's worked with Miyamoto on every Zelda game since OoT (which is also where the overarching storyline concept began in a series that never really paid much attention to it before).

What's more, the idea they survived to defeat Ganon and did breed contradicts the canon in more than one way.

That's a perfect point though. Cause I was positive that Ocarina was the events the manual was talking about...But THEN we find out that a THIRD Timeline comes out, where the whole thing happens again! It's just...Stupid!

Yeah, I prefer to just enjoy the games (I love every LoZ game I've ever played).
What, Darunia and Rauru don't count as wise?

I'm glad to find those who don't believe the zelda timeline to be honest. I actually wanted to find those people since some fans do believe in the timeline. :shrug:

Link: Yeah, even though my ancestor went through that himself, I still have to call Bullshit on that.

As funny as this is, I feel I must point out that Link to the Past came out before Ocarina of Time... Still though, it is awfully funny :P

Yeah, I didn't care much about the official timeline either. The most I cared about the timeline shtuff was the direct sequels, such as Ocarina of Time to Majora's Mask, or Windwaker to Phantom Hourglass to Spirit Tracks, which were known before the "official timeline".
