Link should have wished to be a god with unlimited power greater then the Goddess and Demise combined.

Then the Triforce would have meaning.

Was he able to make that wish?

I don't think a limit was ever imposed on what you can and can't wish for, only that if the wish was completely selfish the Triforce would split, you would get 1/3rd of its power, and you would have to find the other 2 pieces to make your wish again. At which point the Triforce, having granted a wish, would disappear and nobody would wonder where it went.

If Demise wanted it so badly, and he was "supposed to" be a god himself, then it obviously could do for him something he couldn't do himself.

You may have misunderstood how the Triforce works. The Triforce doesn't discern between good and evil; any wish is fine. However, if the person claiming the Triforce doesn't have all three virtues in balance the Triforce will split, regardless of how good or evil that person may be.

There does seem to be limitations to the Triforce's wish granting powers, though. After all, Ganondorf's wish wasn't granted in ALttP since he was prevented before it could be fulfilled. Instead, it basically just gave him the next best thing.

...I could believe this.


In fact, this would make a great storyline for a Zelda game. So many gullible, innocent fools searching for and believeing in the Triforce when in the end it is revealed that all it is is a big fat lie.

I think a futuristic steampunk setting would be most appropriate, in an era where most people have stopped believed in myth and magic, causing Ganondorf to finally commit suicide due to his overwhelming failures and thus ceasing the reincarnation cycle.

Hasn't it been part of the plot since the first game?
