I decided to post this message on this zelda board instead of any other because i thought it would be seen by more people here. This topic is for us fans to debate about the different symbols that have appeared troughout the zelda series.
First we have many freemasons symbols; we have the triforce, representing the pyramid and the ultimate power, whoever controls it, rules the world. Then we have many enemies like gohma and bongo bongo that have only one eye, representing the all seeing eye.
Then we have some muslims themes, we have the character sheik which means leader of the tribe in ancient before islamic times or muslim authority in recent times, there is also the banned version of the fire temple in which you can hear people praying to allah, here is the link for you to hear it : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYxDhMVvkp8. Also, the mirror shield and some blocks in the ocarina of time also have islamic symbols: http://www.hylianhelpdesk.com/ocarina/imgs/items/mirror_shield.jpg
Lastly, and the most shocking symbol i have ever seen in the zelda series, is the nazi swastika you can see in one of the dungeon maps which appear on the nes zelda.
All of this is in contradiction with nintendo´s strong removal of satanic/religious themes in their games, why would they allow this messages to be within their games, what do you think?

Notice how she has an eye in her clothes, a masonic symbol also known s the all seeing eye, http://images.google.cl/imgres?imgurl=http://library.thinkquest.org/05aug/00158/images/allseeingeye.jpg&imgrefurl=http://library.thinkquest.org/05aug/00158/illuminati.html&usg=__siX9o0TprD2nhVDouxE37ffpk4Q=&h=321&w=300&sz=32&hl=es&start=2&sig2=ah42dSfpqQDGNMzGqsIgPA&tbnid=DwnjY8BD3iPzCM:&tbnh=118&tbnw=110&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dall%2Bseeing%2Beye%26gbv%3D2%26hl%3Des%26safe%3Doff&ei=iawIS6rrOc2XtgfTn72RCA
^This. BTW, NIntendo hasn't been actively removing religious symbols for some time now, except where they actually did offend someone (Fire Temple chanting). The more recent Final Fantasy re-releases, to name a well-known example, are pretty much intact (no more "White"/"Pearl" nonsense).
