    Version .1: Submitted entire script. The FAQ featured preliminary sections like

    Purpose~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(0.3)
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    
    This FAQ was written in response to time line theorists. Indeed, FSA has many 
    controversial and conflicting issues with the Zelda timeline, and it remained 
    one of the last Zelda games that Gamefaqs did not have a script for.  The guide 
    may also be used for casual readers, as all quotes are the chronological order 
    that matches the progression of the game.  I also tried to use as many captions 
    as possible to describe the events that occur.  Hopefully, a wide range of Zelda
    fans will find this guide helpful.
    
    The guide is currently formatted using the same line breaks that the game has.  
    Although, if it becomes an issue, I may end up deleting the games line breaks 
    for ease of reading.   
    
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Using the guide~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(0.4)
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    I decided to use a rating system that would help timeline theorists better 
    navigate and find meaningful quotes.  Quotes that I give a rating to will have 
    (TMLN X) directly after the name, with X being the rating level.  This way if 
    you want to search for important quotes by a specific person, you would type in
    "NAME(TMLN" in the search box.  Or if you want to search for a specific rating 
    level for a specific person, or all quotes of a certain rating, you would search
    "NAME(TMLN X), or (TMLN X) respectively.  Again, X would be either 1, 2, or 3 
    with 3 being the highest canon, and 1 being a possible Easter Egg. So if I 
    wanted to search for the description of the tri dent, I would search 
    "REDMAIDEN(TMLN 2)" with a space in between red and maiden, because I know that
    the redmaiden reads the inscription and I know the tri dent is level 2. 
    (Note: I'm using irregular spacing so as not to flood the search results)
    
    I realize that doing this in itself is controversial, and could turn out biased,
    as someone else might give a certain quote a different rating, but I narrowed it
    down to three levels of canon that hopefully can't be disputed.  
    
    LEVEL 3: High-Level Canon
    All quotes marked with (TMLN 3) are indisputable Canon that is widely believed 
    to be universally concurrent throughout the series.  It also includes elements 
    that MUST be tied into the timeline.  This includes the prologue, and epilogue,
    Gannon, the Triforce, the Four Sword, and Zelda.  After deliberating awhile, I 
    decided the tri dent would be included in this level, as it is widely believed 
    to affect the rest of the timeline.  
    
    LEVEL 2: Mid-Level Canon
    All quotes marked with (TMLN 2) are large factors to take into consideration 
    when constructing a timeline.  This level will include canonical elements that 
    impact the construction of many people's timelines, but sometimes not others. 
    This includes new storyline elements that are unique to FSA, but could very well
    be expanded on in future Zelda games.  Such level 2 material includes the 
    trident, Gerudo, Zuna, the Pyramid, the Royal Jewels, the Knights of Hyrule, and
    some of what Kaepora Gaebora says.
    
    LEVEL 1: Low-Level Canon
    All quotes marked with (TMLN 1) are probably inconsequential to the construction
    of the timeline, and might be called Easter Eggs.  I sometimes labeled seemingly
    irrelevant quotes a 1, because someone could very well end up using them to 
    support random point in some time line discussion or another.  Important 
    characters like Zelda and the maidens will always at least be given a 1 rating, 
    even if what they're saying doesn't appear to be relevant to the time line.  
    These types of quotes can still be utilized for deciphering the personality of 
    important characters.

    The Story of Hyrulean Adventure
    
    Long ago in the inner reaches of Hyrule, an evil wind sorcerer known as 
    Vaati began kidnapping beautiful young maidens, one after another.
    
    Nobody could stop Vaati, and the people of Hyrule despaired. Then, a brave 
    young warrior carrying only a single sword appeared.
    
    When the young lad took out his sword, he split into four separate
    beings. The legends say that these four beings worked as one 
    and defeated Vaati.
    
    The wanderer, united once again, imprisoned 
    Vaati deep in Hyrule and sealed the
    prison with his own sword. This place
    became known as the Realm of the
    Four Sword.
    
    After that, a long time passed.
    
    Then, the wind sorcerer Vaati broke out of his prison and then snatched
    Princess Zelda of Hyrule.  
    
    Zelda's childhood friend, a young boy named Link, claimed the strange
    power of the Four Sword and fought Vaati fiercely. In the end, he succeeded
    in sealing Vaati away once again.  
    
    And so, peace was restored to Hyrule once again.
    
    Or so everyone thought...

    (Adventure across Hyrule, and free the realm with the mighty Four Sword!)
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Game Prologue(TMLN 3)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(0.9)
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    
    Long ago, in the kingdom of
    Hyrule, a wind sorcerer
    named Vaati appeared.
    
    Vaati terrorized the people 
    of Hyrule and kidnapped 
    many beautiful girls from 
    their homes.
    
    When all hope seemed lost,
    a young boy carrying 
    little more than a 
    sword appeared.
    
    According to the legends,
    when the boy drew his sword,
    he split into four, the
    four-who-are-one worked
    together to vanquish Vaati.
    
    The hero used his word to 
    bind Vaati in a remote area 
    in Hyrule.  The people 
    christened the blade the Four
    Sword and built a shrine 
    around it.  There it remained
    undisturbed for years.
    
    Ages flowed by...
    
    The wind sorcerer Vaati
    broke free of his prison 
    and kidnapped Zelda, the
    princess of Hyrule.
    
    Princess Zelda's childhood
    friend, Link, used the power 
    of the Four Sword to defeat
    Vaati and seal him away
    once again.
    
    And, for a time, the people 
    of Hyrule believed that 
    their land was safe.
    
    Until...

    VOICE FROM THE LIGHT(TMLN 1)
    Link... Link... 
    Can you hear my voice?
    
    
    NARRATOR(TMLN 1)
    Swiftly and suddenly, dark
    clouds covered all of Hyrule.
    
    Ominous clouds that filled 
    all those who saw them
    with fear...
    
    A sense of dread swept
    across the land.
    
    
    VOICE FROM THE LIGHT
    Link...
    Hurry to Hyrule Castle...
    
    
    ~Hyrule Castle~
    
    PRINCESS ZELDA(TMLN 1)
    Oh, Link...
    It's you!  Thank goodness
    you came!
    
    The six maidens who guard 
    Hyrule are gathered here in
    the castle.
    
    The sky has become so dark
    and foreboding...
    
    I'm worried about the seal
    that binds the wind
    sorcerer Vaati.
    
    
    VOICE
    Princess Zelda!
    Come quickly!
    
    
    PRINCESS ZELDA(TMLN 1)
    We must hurry.
    Come, this way.
    
    
    ~Maidens Sanctuary~
    
    PRINCESS ZELDA(TMLN 2)
    These six maidens guard the
    portal to the Four Sword 
    Sanctuary to keep it safe.
    
    I'm going now to make sure 
    Vaati's seal remains strong.
    
    Now, the shrine maidens and 
    I must open the portal to the 
    Four Sword's resting place.
    
    Step back, Link...
    [Maidens create the portal]
    
    Come with me, Link.
    [Gasp, Shadow Link appears]
    
    Ah!
    
    Wh...who are--?
    
    It can't be...
    You're...Link?!
    
    [Shadow Link encapsulates the maidens, disappearing into the portal; Link 
    follows him through the portal, to the Four Sword Sanctuary.]
    
    
    ~Four Sword Sanctuary~
    
    [Shadow Link taunts Link into approaching the Four Sword]
    
    NARRATOR(TMLN 2)
    This sword guards the seal 
    on the wind sorcerer Vaati.
    
    If you draw the sword, you 
    must know what will happen.
    
    Will you still draw forth 
    the sword?
    
    (No)
    
    [Shadow Link continues to taunt Link, until he approaches it again]
    
    So you accept the fate of the 
    one who draws this sword?
    
    (Yes)
    
    [Link pulls it out, splitting into four.  Shadow Link laughs and runs away, but 
    as Link tries to pursue him, dark magic spews from the pedestal, and a windy 
    cyclone appears, carrying the four Links away.  The sorcerer Vaati appears from 
    the pedestal, (in his beastly eyeball form) and cackles.  The screen fades.]
    
    [black screen; flapping wings and owl coos can be heard every once in awhile]
    
    VOICE(TMLN 2)
    Link...
    You have accepted the
    destiny of the hero...
    
    Princess Zelda and the six 
    maidens have been taken 
    by dark forces.
    
    However, Vaati's magic has
    robbed the Four Sword of its 
    power to vanquish darkness.
    
    To return the sword to its 
    full strength, find the source 
    of that power: Force Gems.
    
    Gather Force Gems wherever
    they lie, and rescue the 
    maidens and Princess Zelda.

    Link! Link!
    You must awaken, Link!
    
    [screen opens to green field, an Owl flies in landing on a perch.]
    
    Hoo hoot!
    At last, you're awake, Link.
    
    I am Kaepora Gaebora.
    
    KAEPORA GAEBORA(TMLN 2)
    Mine is the voice you've 
    been hearing since you left 
    the Four Sword Sanctuary. 
    
    I know you're worried about 
    finding Vaati, but you must 
    not act rashly.
    
    Find the six shrine maidens 
    and Princess Zelda, and you 
    will also find Vaati.
    
    As for that dark shadow...
    Let's call him Shadow Link.
    That one is up to no good.
    
    Your sword is weak, but you 
    can restore its power by 
    infusing it with Force Gems.
    
    Hoo hoo! First, gather the 
    four who were once one with 
    the L Button or Y button.
    
    I must fly, but we will meet 
    again on the road ahead.

    OLD MAN IN HOUSE
    Hm?
    I've never seen you lads in
    these parts before.
    
    I'm spending my retirement
    teaching my grandkids all
    about formations.
    
    You may not believe me, but
    I'm a former castle guard!
    A professional adventurer.
    
    Formations are the key to
    working together and
    performing great deeds!
    
    If you're interested in
    learning more about it,
    go on into my backyard!
    
    [Move into backyard]
    
    OK. We'll get started once
    you're all standing in
    the field on the left!
    
    GRANDKID 1
    If you get into formation
    and unite your strength,
    you can do almost anything!
    
    You can certainly do more
    than any one of you could
    do alone.
    
    GRANDKID 2
    Oh! Hi there. You know, if
    you have a Game Boy
    Advance, you should use it.
    
    We always connect our
    Game Boy Advance systems!
    
    It's nice to have a little
    privacy when you go into
    a house or a cave.
    
    That's what our grandfather
    always says. But...what
    would he need privacy for?
    
    GRANDKID 3
    Press the L Button or the 
    Y Button to change 
    formations!
    
    GRANDKID 4
    Oh, hello there!
    
    Did you come to learn
    formations from my
    grandfather, too?
    
    If so, you can do your
    training over there!
    
    GRANDFATHER (instructing)
    OK! Looks like you're ready
    to get started!
    
    I'm going to drill you boys
    in the art of formations!
    
    And... Wait, hold it!
    I guess I'd better explain
    how this all works first!
    
    Um... I'll yell out the name
    of a formation!
    
    You will press the L Button
    or the Y Button to form up!
    
    That's it!!
    
    If you hear a formation
    name but don't know which
    it is, watch my grandkids.
    
    All right then...
    Here we go!
    
    [do the four formations: Box, Wide, Long, Cross]
    
    That's enough!
    
    That's the end of the drill!
    
    I'll give you some Force
    Gems for all the hard work
    you've done!
    
    No matter where you go or
    what you do, remember
    your formations!
    
    Your safety is my number-
    one concern!
    
    [move into house again]
    
    GRANDFATHER
    Listen up! Formations are
    the foundation upon which
    adventurers are made.
    
    Good formations mean good
    cooperation, and teamwork
    is the key to adventure!
    
    SIGN
    The bridge is out!
    
    If you just have to see
    what's on the other side,
    press and hold the B Button!
    
    SIGN 
    Do not recklessly pick up
    stones and throw them by
    pressing the R Button!
    
    OLD WOMAN IN HOUSE
    Oh, thank goodness!
    
    That stupid door was really
    getting on my nerves!
    
    It never occurred to me that
    someone might have locked
    it from the outside!
    
    I'm convinced it was that
    shadow boy, the one who
    looks just like you.
    
    Strange things are happening
    everywhere these days. You
    boys watch yourselves.
    
    OLD WOMAN IN HOUSE (again)
    I don't know...
    You look JUST LIKE that
    shadow guy.
    
    But you eyes! They sparkle
    and shine with light!
    
    I can tell just by looking
    into your eyes that you're
    not bad boys.
    
    MAN IN BACKYARD
    I've started working out so
    I can do something about all
    those Octoroks out front.
    
    Still, no matter how strong
    I am, I'll never be able to,
    say, lift a huge rock alone!
    
    MAN IN BACKYARD (again)
    If I have someone to help
    lift it, I'm sure it would
    be as easy as pie.
    
    OLD WOMAN IN HOUSE (on way out)
    Oh, so you want that rod,
    do you?
    
    That shadow boy was
    after the same thing.
    
    I hid it from him, but I
    think you can have it.
    You've been so nice to me.
    
    And besides, you look like
    you can be trusted with it.
    
    Take care of it,
    all right?
    
    [As you lift a large rock, a strange person appears]
    ... ... ...
    
    ... ... ...
    
    Huh?!
    You... You've saved Tingle!
    
    TINGLE(TMLN 1)
    ... ... ...
    
    Ooo...!
    Th-that outfit! That aura!
    
    It's the fairy that Tingle
    has dreamed of...
    
    It's you!!
    
    Oh, Mr. Fairy! You coming to
    my rescue has left me
    overcome with emotion!
    
    Let me thank you by sharing
    some thrilling Tingle news
    with you!
    
    The oh so Tingle-esque
    pastime of collecting Force
    Gems is all the rage now!
    
    In fact, I got stuck under
    here trying to get the Force
    Gem under this rock.
    
    But you saved me! Clearly,
    it was the power of the gems

    No doubt that's why you're

    Tingle had an encounter with
    a charming lady fairy! It
    was fate! Destiny!
    
    I was sneaking along behind
    her when she went into a
    castle...and never came out!
    
    Surely she's been captured,
    because she's too adorable
    for her own good!
    
    If you happen to see
    Miss Fairy, gaze upon
    her lovingly for me.
    
    Oh...and save her, too!

    He's leeching power from the

    Listen well, Link.
    
    To rescue the maidens, you
    must face the fiercest of
    foes.

    You... You're not with those
    fiends who have taken over
    the castle, are you?
    
    Please, would you help me?
    
    I heard the maidens' cries
    and came running to find the
    castle a nest of fiends.
    
    They captured me and split
    me in two. That's why I look
    so horrible right now!
    
    Please, I beg of you.
    Reunite my two halves!
    Make me whole again!

    Oh, the Four Sword. You've
    drawn the mystic blade.
    
    That means Vaati is free
    once more, does it not?
    
    And you've taken up the
    mantle fate has given you.
    How brave!
    
    Such determination speaks
    well of you. You are truly

    SEEKER 1
    ... ... ...
    
    Hm...so you're a new
    member of the Seeker's
    Guild, are you?
    
    Let me tell you about the
    clues our investigation
    has turned up so far.
    
    This odd little mage
    whispered this to me:
    
    "The six..."
    
    I'm sure it's connected to
    this incident somehow!
    Don't you forget it!
    
    SEEKER 2
    ... ... ...
    
    What was that?
    You're...a brother of
    the Seeker's Guild?
    
    I see... Well then, listen
    to the information I've
    gathered.
    
    An apprentice mage
    disappeared somewhere
    around here. POOF!
    
    Right when she vanished,
    she whispered something...
    
    "Protect..."
    
    Now that's suspicious!
    You would do well to lock
    that away in your head!
    
    SEEKER 3
    ... ... ...
    
    Oh, so you're here to help
    with the investigation?
    That's welcome news!
    
    Well then, listen to what
    I have to tell you!
    
    Look! The mage is over
    there, right?
    
    I was hiding over here,
    watching her, when I heard
    her call out suddenly...
    
    She said, "Beautiful!"
    
    suspicious, isn't it? Maybe
    it's part of a spell or
    something!  What's she up to?
    
    SEEKER 4
    ... ... ...
    
    Oh, so now you're a member
    of the Seeker's Guild?!
    
    Well then, why don't you
    listen to the clues I've
    gathered so far!
    
    A weird mage is lurking
    somewhere back here....
    
    I can sometimes hear her
    talking to herself, and
    this is what she says:
    
    "Deeply connected to 
    this village..."
    
    That is most definitely a
    clue! Go and report this
    to the chief!

    You guys used a Moon Pearl,
    didn't you?

    lout think he is?
    That's just rude!

    Eee hee hee hee hee!
    
    The girl here has vanished,
    too.  No doubt she is
    trembling in fear even now!

    guild, but watching over us
    is a waste of time!

    and robbers if they like!

    place for our kind!
    
    You want a Moon Pearl?

    G'wan, get outta here!
    
    (Yes)

    MAN MISSING HIS HOUSE
    My girl and I were fighting.
    I took off, and when I came
    back, my house was gone!
    
    I went to her place, but all
    I found was this strange
    mage and a Seeker.
    Where's my house?  Where's
    my girlfriend!?!
    
    Ah...I've lost everything...
    
    What am I supposed to do

    My name's Iris!
    I'm a novice magician.
    
    I lost my magic book, and 
    now I don't have the magic
    to get back home.
    
    I tried some spells from
    memory, and I got this tiny
    house to appear...
    
    But it's so frustrating!
    Where in the world could my
    book have gone?

    Hey! Let's gamble. You won't
    get into and trouble!

    Wow! Talk about a boring
    guy! Maybe we can play

    Oh, yes... As thanks for
    your help, I'd like to
    give you something.
    
    During the course of our
    inquiry, we dug up a
    hidden passageway.
    
    Try digging by the
    house of pots in the south-
    eastern part of the village.
    
    You should find a path

    is always crying.
    
    I wonder if she doesn't like

    this old village.
    
    I really need a vacation,
    but it's always the first
    step that's the hardest.
    
    I mean, I can't really go

    ... ... ...
    
    What?
    You made the new road?
    
    That's so helpful!
    Thank you!
    
    That new road you built
    has been a lifesaver! Or
    at least, a time-saver...
    
    I'm gonna take a quick
    rest, and then I'm headed
    for the summit.
    
    GORON
    Oh, not good! Someone built 
    a house here while I was
    gone. That was fast!
    
    It's covering the hole I
    buried my most precious
    belonging in...
    
    If there were just some way
    to move that house aside...
    
    THIEF
    H-Hey! Did you see one of
    those Gorons out front?
    
    I don't know what he's
    thinking, but he's been
    shaking my house like crazy!
    
    I planted stakes outside to
    hold my house in place, but
    that guy is stupid strong.
    
    GORON (after house is moved)
    Whoa! Oh, whoa! That
    big ol' house just
    moved!
    
    Yeah, all those stakes
    stuck around the house
    were such a pain.
    
    But now that they're gone
    I can just push that house
    around all I want!
    
    KID GORON
    I can't even believe
    he's a Goron...
    It's just shameful!
    
    Fire doesn't bug us!
    
    Listen, brother! Go give
    that pitiful Goron a
    solid thumping!
    
    Knock some sense back
    into his rocky head!!
    
    GORON
    Darn it! Where'd he go!
    It's a disgrace! Since when
    is a Goron afraid of fire!?
    
    We've been looking for him
    everywhere. I bet he buried
    himself again.
    
    What are we going to do?
    He still has the key...
    
    UPROOTED GORON 1-4
    Yaaaawwwnnn...
    I was sleeping so soundly...
    Let me be, will you?
    
    UPROOTED GORON 1-4 (again)
    What is it?
    Do you need something?
    
    UPROOTED GORON 5
    Hey! What was that for!?
    I was trying to hide!!
    You're a meanie!
    
    UPROOTED GORON 6
    You found me! Good work!
    And I thought that was a
    pretty good hiding spot!

    The giant bird is just up
    ahead. It is quite fast, so
    keep your eyes open.
    
    We bird folk like to fly high
    and gaze down on the land.
    This area is especially nice.
    
    We'll not let beautiful
    Hyrule be taken by these
    dark beings.
    
    ...Hm?
    
    That's Hyrule Castle...
    I believe you've driven off
    its darkness already, but...
    
    Something's not right.
    I shall go and investigate!
    You keep going!
    
    Get rid of that bird and 
    save the maiden from

    Oh, this isn't good. I
    brought my bombs all this
    way, and then I dropped 'em.
    
    They went right into the lava,
    too. And I thought I had a
    good plan...
    
    I was gonna use them on the 
    monsters around here. You
    should watch out for them.
    
    I mean, if they can toast
    me, they're sure to burn
    you to a crisp.
    
    Oh, hey! I can teach you an
    IN-credible way of dealing
    with those pesky things.
    
    What do you say? Would
    you like to hear it?
    
    (No, Thanks)
    
    ...Huh? Are you sure? You
    might regret it later.
    
    Well, I won't hold it
    against you. If you change 
    your mind, just come see me.
    
    All it will take is one good
    toasting, and you'll learn 
    your lesson the hard way.
    
    GORON (again)
    Hey, there, brother!
    
    Want to hear my great plan
    for slaying Dodongos?
    
    (Sure) 
    
    Great! I'll show you!
    The problem is those things
    have skin as hard as rock.
    
    Even with my strength, it's 
    a waste to hit them. I can't
    even make a dent!
    
    But then it came to me! They
    may be tough on the outside
    but weak on the INSIDE!
    
    So right when they open
    their mouths to breather
    fire, gulp! And then...
    
    BLAMMO! What a great idea!
    ...But then I dropped my
    bombs in the lava!
    
    Ugh! I can't believe it!
    
    KAEPORA GAEBORA
    Hoo hoot!
    Link! Danger has struck
    Hyrule Castle once again!
    
    The darkness we thought 
    vanquished has returned.
    
    Perhaps some dark agent
    remained hidden, waiting for
    the right moment to strike.
    
    Where there is great evil,
    though there may also be
    an imprisoned shrine maiden.
    
    You must tell the maiden
    of this tower! We cannot
    abandon Hyrule Castle!
    
    GREEN MAIDEN(TMLN 2)
    You passed through the
    flames to rescue me!
    
    Such bravery. You're just
    like the Knights of Hyrule!
    
    You've heard of the Knights
    of Hyrule, of course!
    
    They're the pride of the
    kingdom! They would lay
    down their lives for honor!
    
    In Hyrule, four sacred jewels
    can open the path to the
    Realm of the Heavens.
    
    The safety of these jewels
    has for ages been entrusted
    to the Knights o Hyrule.
    
    And yet, in these dark times,
    the knights are nowhere
    to be seen...
    
    I cannot hide my fears.
    
    ... ... ...
    
    Pardon? Master Kaepora
    Gaebora, you say?
    
    Is that so... Well then, we
    must go to Hyrule Castle!
    
    We must liberate the castle!

    Um, excuse me...
    Were you just talking
    to...a green fairy?
    
    I saw it! There was a
    beautiful fairy fluttering
    around you!
    
    Amazing! What Poppa told
    me really is true!
    
    He said that good boys and 
    girls get to meet fairies!
    
    Like today! I was coming
    home after running errands
    but...I couldn't get back.
    
    I mean, it started raining,
    and the castle guards were
    moving all the cannons...
    
    The cannons are really old,
    and they're not meant to be
    used... It was really weird.
    
    Say, if you're all going on
    ahead, take me with you!
    
    You're friends with the
    green fairy, so of course
    it's OK, right?
    
    (No)
    
    But why?
    I'm sure the green fairy
    would take me!
    
    And you're friends with 
    the green fairy, so you
    must be a good kid.
    
    Please!
    Take me home!
    
    (Yes)
    
    Oh, great! Thanks!
    
    My name's Malon!
    I'm from the Lon Lon Ranch
    right up the road.

    Thanks, again!

    Poppa!
    
    POPPA
    Oh... Malon!
    You're late!
    
    The rain's coming down so
    hard, I was beginning
    to worry!
    
    In fact, I'd gotten so
    worried that I was about 
    to go looking for you!
    
    MALON(TMLN 1)
    To tell the truth, Poppa,
    these young boys rescued
    me!
    
    The soldiers in the castle
    we behaving so oddly, and 
    I couldn't get past them.
    
    They were moving the old
    cannons around...and they
    even aimed their bows at me!
    
    POPPA
    What? Really? That IS
    Strange. Something must
    have gotten into them.
    
    What could be going on?
    I wonder if something's 
    happened at Hyrule Castle.
    
    Malon, I'm just glad that
    you made it home safely. It
    sounded like a close call!
    
    My thanks to all of you for
    saving my poor Malon!
    
    I'd love to give you a
    token of my gratitude!
    
    Hmmm...let's see...
    
    I've got it! If you're going
    to continue your trip, you
    should go on horseback!
    
    This castle guards are sure
    to be headed this way, and
    there are more ahead, too. 
    
    You'll be much safer riding
    my swift horses, I'm sure!
    
    Our farms right next door.
    We've lots of carrots around,
    so take some with you.
    
    Those horses love carrots!
    They'll come running if
    you've got some handy.
    
    Thank you once again!
    I'll never forget what
    you've done!
    
    MALON (again)
    Thanks to all of you, I made
    it back home safely!
    
    I hate to admit it, but at
    first, I wasn't sure I could
    really count on you guys.
    
    But it turns out, you guys
    are the best! You're real
    heroes!
    
    I think I finally understand
    why you guys are friends
    with the green fairy.
    
    Thank you so much!
    
    POPPA (again)
    We're so scared that we do
    nothing but sit at home and
    stare at the walls.
    
    Oh yeah, at the bottom of
    the stairs in front of our
    house, there's a storeroom.
    
    It's full of stuff we never
    use, so if you see anything

    all our weapons are stored!

    outside, can you slay all
    the one-eyed monsters?
    
    If you do, you can use
    whatever you want from
    the storage shed.
    
    Will you slay the monsters?
    
    (No Way)
    
    What? Why not? Well, come 
    tell me if you change 
    your mind.

    crumbled to bits, making it

    can I give you...

    There's this giant tree
    that's blocking the path
    to the castle...
    
    But I dug a huge passageway
    so I could get into the
    castle.
    
    Once I was done with it, I
    sealed it up, but you could
    dig it open if you wanted.
    
    Take this shovel in exchange
    for your help. You can dig
    holes with it!
    
    There's a spot north of our
    shed where there might
    be an underground cave.
    
    You should start digging
    around there and try to
    find it.
    
    If you have a hard time
    finding it, try going to the 
    Great Fairy's Fountain.
    
    The fairy there can make 
    this a powerful shovel!
    
    OLD MAN IN HOUSE (again)
    Oh! You again?
    
    What? You slew all the

    Oh, thank you so much!

    your reward.

    To my shame, I fell under
    the sway of dark powers
    
    and was transformed into

    The jewel was also cursed,
    and it became a portal to

    I am sorry for the citizens
    of Hyrule who suffered...
    and for Princess Zelda!
    
    I trust you are going to

    and the Palace of Winds.
    
    However, you must first
    gather the royal jewels
    
    to reveal the path to
    the Tower of Winds.
    
    There are three other
    guardian knights. I fear
    they too have been changed.

    How did you come by it?
    
    Is that so?
    The Knights of Hyrule... So

    Darkness covers it like a

    Link, will you go to the
    forest? Perhaps you will find
    some clues there.
    
    In the heart of the forest is
    a temple. The Dark Mirror
    can be found there.
    
    Long ago, a dark tribe
    invaded Hyrule.
    
    They were defeated and
    imprisoned within the mirror.
    
    The tribe's mirror prison was
    then secreted away and
    hidden in the forest temple
    
    to sever its connection to
    this world.
    
    That Dark Mirror must never
    fall into the hands of those
    with evil hearts.
    
    Link! The mirror is a danger
    in anyone's hands but yours.
    No one else can be trusted.
    
    Retrieve the Dark Mirror
    from the palace, and keep it
    until Princess Zelda is safe.
    
    Please. You are the only one
    we can depend on...
    
    First, let us proceed to the 
    forest.

    Link, this is the Forest
    of Light.
    
    Or rather, it once was. Now,
    the darkness grows deep,
    and the air stagnant.
    
    I wonder if some clue might
    reveal itself here.
    
    It seems that many foul 
    beasts are gathering here.
    
    Perhaps you might be able
    to learn something from
    them.

    Ooh, everywhere I go, woods,
    woods, and more woods!
    Lost Woods everywhere!
    
    Here's a solitary road sign
    just for you!

    Everything's going swell
    lately! And we have Ganon,
    King of Darkness, to thank!
    
    Huh? Vaati?
    
    What's that? No, Vaati's
    old news. Ganon's the King
    of Darkness! Forget Vaati!
    
    DEKU SCRUB
    Oopipi!
    Are you lost?
    
    Oopipipipipi!
    Yeah! Yeah! You'll be
    lost forever!!
    
    [Link stumbles upon Deku Scrubs circled around some type of skull shrine]
    
    DEKU SCRUB 1(TMLN 1) (starting at bottom, going clockwise)
    Soon, Lord Ganon's power
    will change all of Hyrule's
    forests into Lost Woods!
    
    Once that happens, we'll be
    able to travel freely!
    
    DEKU SCRUB 2
    Gwee hee!
    
    I locked up the shovel and
    hid the key to keep
    strangers from finding it!
    
    And let's not forget
    my impeccable work
    guarding it personally!
    
    There's no way anyone will
    ever get their hands on the
    shovel!
    
    DEKU SCRUB 3(TMLN 1)
    Make sure that all who
    enter the forest remain
    here! Lord Ganon's orders!
    
    But we're trying to build an
    underground road that will
    let us go anywhere...
    
    Anyway, we've hidden
    every single shovel we
    could find!
    
    If there are no holes, no
    one will ever find our road.
    We're absolutely brilliant!
    
    DEKU SCRUB 4
    Ah... I love darkness.
    It's so soothing, so
    relaxing.
    
    DEKU SCRUB 5
    Digging holes in woods this
    big is tough work when your
    shovel's been taken away.
    
    We move four times as fast
    in Deku Scrub formation 
    tough, so it'll be a breeze.
    
    You know,  doubt anyone
    else could come up with 
    such a cunning plan!
    
    DEKU SCRUB 6(TMLN 1)
    Thanks to Ganon, we were
    awakened from our slumber!
    
    DEKU SCRUB 7
    The Lost Woods is our
    birthplace!
    
    If you wander lost here for
    too long, you too can
    become a Deku Scrub!
    
    DEKU SCRUB 8
    Uh-oh! I forgot about the
    hole I dug as a joke
    the other day...
    
    I'll need to sneak away
    later, grab a shovel, and
    look for it...
    
    DEKU SCRUB 9
    I captured the Great Fairy
    so that if someone steals
    my shovel...
    
    he won't be able to
    power it up!
    
    DEKU SCRUB 10
    Where the heck did Decci
    go?! That slacker should try
    helping out once in a while!
    
    DEPPI THE DEKU SCRUB
    We're busy getting rid of
    things in the woods that
    are bad for Deku Scrubs.
    
    This is the dumping ground.
    No one's allowed here except
    for magical creatures!
    
    DEPPI THE DEKU SCRUB (again)
    If you want to help, you've 
    got to ask Dekki!
    
    Dekki's around somewhere.
    He likes dark places, so
    go find him yourself!
    
    DEKKI THE DEKU SCRUB
    Hm. You're not a Deku Scrub,
    so why are you even here?
    
    Do you wanna help us?
    
    (No)
    
    Pfeh! I'm busy here! I don't
    have time for your nonsense!
    
    G'wan, get outta here!
    
    DEKKI THE DEKU SCRUB (again)
    Boy, oh, boy! Took you long
    enough! If you want to work,
    all you have to do's say so!
    
    Hey! What's going on? Hey!
    Do you want some work?
    
    (Yes)
    
    Really? Is that so?
    That's a big help!
    
    I was in deep trouble, 'cuz
    there weren't enough Deku
    Scrubs!
    
    Now, uh...were you the one
    who's going to help?
    
    I see... Just you, huh?
    Jeez, I got 50 guys helping 
    me, you know?!
    
    I'm just saying you
    should have a helper...
    or two...or three.
    
    Oh, whatever. C'mon, let's
    just get started.
    
    You ready? I'm gonna name
    three items, and I want you
    to remember each of 'em!
    
    I ain't repeating myself!!
    
    Then you go into the woods,
    nab 'em, and bring 'em back.
    And in order, you hear!?
    
    [Dekki chooses three random items from the following: water jar, stone, grass, 
    oil pot, sign, or bomb.]
    
    1.	Water jar
    2.	Stone
    3.	Grass
    
    So go take all those things
    I told you about and get
    'em to Deppi in that order!
    
    You make any mistakes, and 
    you're fired! now, get
    movin'! Time's a-wastin'!
    
    DEKKI THE DEKU SCRUB (again)
    Cut out all the chatter
    while you're on the job!
    Show some control!
    
    DEPPI THE DEKU SCRUB (after talking to Dekki)
    Don't dawdle! Bring it here!
    
    DEPPI THE DEKU SCRUB (with wrong item)
    Grrrrrr! That's not what 
    you were supposed to bring!
    You're useless!
    
    You're fired!!
    
    DEPPI THE DEKU SCRUB (again)
    You've been fired,
    so scram! Now!
    
    DEKKI THE DEKU SCRUB (after getting fired)
    That's it! You're fired!
    You want to get your job
    back, show me you got guts!
    
    DEKKI THE DEKU SCRUB (after leaving and coming back)
    What? You again?
    Aren't you the whelp
    that just got fired?
    
    You're back to give it a 
    second shot, is that it?
    
    [Dekki gives you another list of items]
    
    DEPPI THE DEKU SCRUB (with first item on list)
    OK! That's one down!
    Now hurry up and bring
    the next one!
    
    DEPPI THE DEKU SCRUB (with second item on list)
    All right, that's number
    two! Just one more to go!
    
    DEPPI THE DEKU SCRUB (with final item on list)
    That's all of them! Your
    job's finished! Now give
    Dekki the good news!
    
    DEPPI THE DEKU SCRUB (again)
    There's nothing left for 
    you to give me! Get going
    and report to Dekki!
    
    DEKKI THE DEKU SCRUB (after job's finished)
    Nice work!
    You're not as worthless as
    you look, you know that?
    
    That's it! Job's done!
    
    You did well, so I'm gonna 
    give you a special reward!
    
    A Power Bracelet!
    
    Put this on and you can
    move even the heaviest 
    things!

    Hey there! How you doin'?
    
    Help us make all woods Deku
    Scrub-friendly environments!

    Do you know this village,

    home to many kind people.
    
    Now however, it's become a
    rather dangerous place.
    
    The darkness that cloaks
    its people has cost many
    of them their humanity.
    
    It's madness. How much
    stronger will this darkness
    in Hyrule grow?
    
    Hoo hoot? Dark Mirror?
    
    Hoo... So the shrine maidens
    have said they want you to

    LETTER ON TABLE
    Dearest,
    
    we've been married now
    for 56 years, and you've 
    always been so good to me.
    
    After I'm gone, please don't
    let yourself be too sad
    for too long.
    
    If you get lonely, get
    yourself a cute Cucco
    as a pet.
    
    If you do, perhaps you'll
    be able to forget some
    of your sorrow.
    
    Good-bye, old timer.
    We'll meet again one day.

    ... ... ... ... ...
    
    Ah, what an adorable Cucco.
    It warms my old heart.
    
    After my wife passed on, I 
    was prepared to spend the
    rest of my days alone...
    
    But now that I've seen that
    Cucco... Would you...let 
    me take care of it for you?
    
    I'll give you this key, and 
    you can even take as many
    Force Gems as you like.
    
    If I have that Cucco by
    my side, I won't need 
    anything else.

    adopt myself a pet Cucco.

    Ah, well... Come again...

    OLD MAN WITH CAGE
    I've built a fence around
    the village to keep any
    thieves from escaping!
    
    If you want to leave the

    ten thieves first.
    
    All you gotta do is lift the
    rascals up with the R Button
    and put 'em in the cage.
    
    I'm countin' on you.

    You still have __ thieves
    left to capture.

    Use the R Button to lift 'em
    up and put 'em in this cage.
    
    Nab every last one of them
    miscreants even the once
    holed up in their lair.
    
    TREASURE CHEST
    Too bad! You got nothing!
    
    OLD MAN WITH CAGE (after catching ten thieves)
    Well, I'll be!
    Did you really capture every
    last one of the thieves?
    
    What a relief that is. Now
    that they're all gone, I can
    take that fence down.
    
    You can come and go as you
    please from now on.
    
    OLD MAN WITH CAGE (again)
    Looks like peace and quiet
    will return to our village.
    
    No need for me to look out
    my window for thieves
    anymore. What a relief!
    
    And we have you to thank
    for all of this!

    What we need is a good 
    downpour, but there's nary a 
    drop of rain to be had.
    
    I'd say a rain prayer, but
    I can't very well use the
    flame from our own fires.
    
    Hmm... Gotta do something,
    or the village is doomed.
    What to do...
    
    OLD MAN BY TORCHES (again)

    to chow down on those
    fish, but I can't catch 'em!

    them in my mouth, I'll give 
    you a reward!
    
    Do you want to try?
    Hm? Do you?
    
    (No)
    
    I'm famished...
    Go away!
    
    (Yes)
    
    I'm really famished, so
    you've got to  do it within a
    minute! Ready... GO!
    
    Hold it!
    
    Oh, that was tasty!
    Here's your reward.

    in here for my health.
    
    I'd like to give you
    something for rescuing
    our village.
    
    There's a treasure buried
    in a pit in my yard.
    
    You'll get more out of it
    than I ever will.
    
    So...cough...I want you to
    have it.
    
    (again)
    My most special treasure,
    my bug net...
    It got burned up...

    The Four Sword was the seal
    to Vaati's prison.
    
    If you have it, that means
    the seal has been broken.

    me in darkness was not

    Ah! If the one who enchanted
    me and turned the jewel
    
    into a dark portal wanted
    Vaati restored...
    
    His goal must be to use
    Vaati to remake Hyrule into
    a land of darkness.
    
    Listen to me, heroes. You
    must never forget that Vaati
    is not the only foe you face.
    
    I will follow my brother
    knight's lead and entrust to
    you this green royal jewel.

    Ah, but it's a free world...
    You can go get stomped if
    you want! Ha ha ha hah!
    
    DEKU SCRUB 2
    The inside of the temple is
    a rough place. You'll get
    torn up in no time!
    
    You'd better be prepared!
    
    DEKU SCRUB 3(TMLN 1)
    Hey! Why have you come to
    the Temple of Darkness? Are 
    you here to see Lord Ganon?!
    
    DEKU SCRUB 4
    You'll learn how strong Lord
    Ganon is soon enough!
    
    DEKU SCRUB 5(TMLN 1)
    Lord Ganon told us to keep 
    watch for any travelers
    moving in groups of four.
    
    And there are four of you,
    aren't there? Geh heh heh...
    
    But Lord Ganon would never
    be afraid of kids like you.
    He must mean someone else.
    
    DEKU SCRUB 6
    Whew... I'm beat! I've come
    all the way from the Lost
    Woods to pay my respects.
    
    DEKU SCRUB IN FOUNDATION(TMLN 1)
    Grrr!
    What a bunch of thugs!
    
    Blowing up our foundation
    with your stupid little
    bombs!
    
    That's right! This is the
    foundation for the glorious
    Lord Ganon's statue!
    
    It's not done yet, so don't
    go manhandling it, punks!
    
    Just be careful, because if
    there are holes to the north 
    and south of it, it'll move!
    
    DEKU SCRUB IN FOUNDATION (after move)
    Gwaaaaaaa!!!
    
    You... You moved our
    precious foundation! You...
    You dared to touch it!!
    
    What do you think you're
    doing? You're so mean!!
    Wahhh!!!
    
    DEKU SCRUB 1
    We're planning a cool stone
    monument to put up here!
    
    The inscription's been
    finalized and everything!
    
    "1. Put four in a vertical 
    line." That's what it'll 
    say! Is that cool or what?!
    
    DEKU SCRUB 2
    We're planning a stylish
    stone monument to put up

    The inscription's been

    Now is that or is that not
    the very height of style?!
    
    Seriously, am I right?

    We're planning a grand

    right?
    
    WHITE MAIDEN (fairy form) (TMLN 2)
    Ah!
    The Dark Mirror... Someone's 
    stolen the Dark Mirror!
    
    That mirror reveals the 
    wickedness within a person
    and brings it to life.
    
    It's an item of terrible,
    dark power. No good can
    come from this.
    
    Shadow Link!!
    
    Could he be your evil
    reflection, cast by the
    Dark Mirror?
    
    If that were the motive of
    the mirror's thief...
    This is disastrous!
    
    If we don't get the mirror
    back, Hyrule will be overrun
    with evil Shadow Links.
    
    The mirror... Who took it?
    And where?
    
    WHITE MAIDEN (fairy form)
    The red shrine maiden's in
    trouble! The Mirror! The Dark
    Mirror!
    
    RED MAIDEN(TMLN 1)
    The white maiden? I'm
    worried about the mirror,
    too. Who could have stolen it?
    
    And what of the other shrine
    maidens? Has Princess Zelda
    been rescued?
    
    WHITE MAIDEN(TMLN 2) (fairy form)
    The whereabouts of the 
    purple maiden and the 
    princess are still...
    
    We still have no clear idea
    of who stole the mirror.
    
    However, there is something
    that disturbs me.
    
    When those...things...first
    entered my woods, they
    spoke of their dark lord.
    
    "Ganon, Ganon," they
    chanted. It was as though
    they were...worshipping.
    
    RED MAIDEN(TMLN 3)
    Ganon... I've heard that
    name before. No wait...
    It was Ganondorf...
    
    But, no... That man was of
    the Gerudo tribe.
    
    I can't imagine these
    creatures worshipping 
    some desert nomad.
    
    There's a Gerudo village
    in the desert.
    
    I doubt there is any
    connection, but it cannot
    hurt to check the village.
    
    Beyond the village lie
    ruins and an ancient 
    pyramid.
    
    They are so old that no
    living creature knows
    very much about them.
    
    All I can tell you is that
    no on who sets foot in the
    pyramid ever returns.
    
    If one of the maidens is
    there, I fear for her safety.
    
    Link... Despite all of this,
    we must go there.
    
    Let us be on our way! To
    the endless desert sands!

    RED MAIDEN (fairy form)
    Take heed, Link.
    The road you must take is
    enveloped in a fierce wind.
    
    But remember how far you've
    traveled. You must proceed.
    You must go forward.
    
    You can meet any obstacle
    that arises. I believe that.
    
    A Gerudo village lies due 
    north of here. Go and speak
    with them.
    
    GERUDO(TMLN 1) 
    Welcome. It's been a long
    time since we've seen any
    travelers here.
    
    This village is our home. We
    are the dwellers in the
    desert, the Gerudo tribe.
    
    The village is in a bit of
    an uproar contending with
    a man who broke our laws.
    
    We can't do much for you,
    but make yourself at home.
    
    GERUDO IN TENT(TMLN 2)
    The pyramid is sacred
    to our people.
    
    To have a criminal such as 
    him enter... His presence 
    stains its holy ground.
    
    GERUDO IN TENT(TMLN 3)
    The Desert Temple was built
    to keep people away from
    the pyramid.
    
    None who enter the pyramids
    or the temple have ever 
    returned. They are tombs.
    
    Yet the man has gone there
    by himself. All for the sake
    of his own mad desire!
    
    GERUDO IN TENT(TMLN 3)
    Once every 100 years, a 
    special child is born unto
    my people.
    
    That child is destined to 
    be the mighty guardian of
    the Gerudo and the desert.
    
    But this child, its heart
    grew twisted with every
    passing year.
    
    The child became a man
    who hungered for power
    at any price.
    
    GERUDO IN TENT(TMLN 2)
    Curse that Ganondorf!
    He broke our laws and
    left for the pyramid...
    
    I don't know what he plans,
    but I am worried...
    
    GERUDO IN TENT(TMLN 1)
    Within this desert, an
    ancient temple slumbers
    amid ruins.
    
    A perpetual sandstorm blows
    here, a barrier to hinder
    those who seek to enter.
    
    If you plunge headlong into
    the sands, you'll wind up
    right where you started.
    
    GERUDO ELDER(TMLN 2)
    Tell me travelers what
    brings you to these
    borderlands?
    
    Hmm...
    
    I see... You came on word
    of the maidens, eh?
    
    Yes, this Ganondorf you
    speak of is a member of
    the Gerudo.
    
    But his intent is unknown to
    me. He has flouted the law
    and fled for the pyramid.
    
    To reach the pyramid, one
    must first pass the trial
    of the Desert Temple.
    
    The villain Ganondorf will
    no doubt draw his last 
    breath failing this trial.
    
    We've blocked the road to 
    the desert to keep other 
    fools from coming.
    
    But considering the crisis
    in Hyrule, we've no reason 
    to stop you brave lads.
    
    Go to the entrance of the 
    village and speak to the
    guards at the gate.
    
    GERUTO ELDER (again)
    The world is in turmoil. The
    desert and her storms have 
    grown fierce.	
    
    Please rescue the 
    maidens...and our world.
    
    GERUDO AT GATE(TMLN 1)
    From here on, the sandstorms
    are brutal. Kids like you
    will never make it through!
    
    GERUDO AT GATE (after talking to elder)
    ... ... ...
    
    Eh? You've received
    special permission?
    
    Well, then...
    I've no choice, do I?
    
    Go ahead. Go on through.
    
    Remember though, the storms
    ahead are terrible.
    Be careful out there.
    
    GERUDO AT GATE (again)
    The sandstorms grow more
    fierce from here on.
    Be careful.

    We of the Zuna tribe live in

    We may not look it now.
    but we are descended from
    the wise pyramid builders!
    
    ZUNA MAN IN TENT(TMLN 1)
    The man who came from the
    south a while back gave off
    bad vibes.
    
    I waved and everything, but
    the jerk just ignored me!
    Hmph!
    
    ZUNA WOMAN IN TENT
    I'll give you a sand rub for
    100 Force Gems!
    
    It's a special massage
    that's good for the heart!
    
    (No thanks.)
    
    And I was going to give you
    a sand massage, too...
    Oh well! Next time!
    
    (Sure.)

    Whew! That is fantastic!
    
    ZUNA MAN IN TENT(TMLN 2)
    Do you want to know the
    secret of the pyramid?
    
    When we're young, we're
    told all the legends of
    the pyramid!
    
    There are many frightening
    tales about the pyramid.
    
    They say there's an evil
    force... No, wait... They
    say there's no evil force.
    
    Wait...which one was it?
    Evil force or no evil force?
    
    ZUNA WOMAN IN TENT(TMLN 1)
    I was wandering about and
    came across this temple in
    the desert.
    
    Eh? Where was it?
    
    Uhm...let's see... I had no
    business there, so I forgot.

    Will your Force Gems
    multiply or dropify? Risk
    100 Force Gems and see!
    
    What do you say?
    
    (Forget It)
    
    Too bad...
    Save up your Force Gems
    and try again.
    
    (I'll Risk It)
    
    Excellent!
    Then open the chest of 
    your choice!
    
    (if the multiply)
    
    Talk about lucky!
    150 Force Gems!
    
    (if they dropify)
    
    Wrong!
    You get 1 Force Gem!

    I am the Knight of Hyrule
    charged with guarding the
    red royal jewel.
    
    Hear now the doom of the 
    knights. We were bested by
    a foe with a mighty weapon.
    
    He cast us into the Dark
    World, were we and the 
    jewels were lost in shadow.
    
    The Tower of Winds
    vanished, and I...
    
    No, WE servants of the
    crown were turned into
    monsters!
    
    The man that defeated us
    is also the same man who
    created that shadowy imp.
    
    A man from the desert
    wastes... He is not Vaati.
    
    Your dark twin was sent by
    him to trick you into
    breaking Vaati's seal.
    
    I wonder were the fiend
    got the amazing power he
    now wields.
    
    It matters not! None of
    this allows me to aid
    Princess Zelda.
    
    And yet I cannot go on...
    
    Brave ones...I entrust the red
    royal jewel to you.
    
    You now possess three
    of them.
    
    Obtain the fourth, and
    bring light back to the 
    Realm of the Heavens!

    Do you think the person who
    took this trident was...
    Ganondorf?!?
    
    The King of Darkness is
    not Vaati?
    
    Does this mean this wicked
    man is somewhere in Hyrule

    Hear me, earth...
    
    Heed the light of the royal
    jewels enshrined here, and
    restore to us...
    
    the Tower of Winds!!
    
    [Light comes from the eye picture on the wall and a pillar of light restores 
    the green color to the Sanctuary]
    
    Link! Climb the tower.
    You are entrusted with

    OooooOOoo...
    
    Strike cracked blocks
    forcefully from above to
    smash them to bits.
    
    Everyone knows that.
    
    I didn't know that...
    No one ever told me,
    and now it's too late...
    
    I must leave some kind of 
    record of my mishap before
    it happens to someone else.
    
    ...Why did I write
    out "OooooOOoo"?
    
    [A prism of light appears after defeating the boss]
    
    PRINCESS ZELDA(TMLN 1)
    Link?
    It is you, isn't it, Link?
    
    I believed you would come to
    my rescue, and here you are.
    
    I knew you would wield the
    Four Sword and come...
    
    Thanks to your efforts the
    darkness above ground is
    thinning.
    
    The maidens and I will pray
    to keep the darkness from
    recovering its full strength.
    
    However, the Realm of the
    Heavens is now overflowing
    with Vaati's monsters.
    
    The darkness in the Realm of
    the Heavens must be purged
    if true peace is to return.

    Strike cracked blocks

    You can also use the
    momentum of being shot from
    cannons to do the same.
    
    Everyone knows that.
    
    Except me. That's the first

    Didn't help me much,

    [Defeat Shadow Link!]
    
    PRINCESS ZELDA(TMLN 1)
    Link!
    
    The Shadow Links will
    regenerate if left alone!
    
    I must act...
    
    [Zelda illuminates the emblem on the ground]
    
    Link! Now!
    Defeat Shadow Link!
    
    PRINCESS ZELDA(TMLN 1) (after Shadow Link is defeated)
    At last, the Dark Mirror has
    been retrieved...
    
    [The emblem disappears]
    
    The Shadow Link, the one
    who wrought so much havoc
    upon Hyrule...
    
    No longer will his troubling
    shade darken our world.
    
    The one who stole this

    the Shadow Link...

    darkness draws near!

    A bridge!
    
    [A rainbow bridge appears behind Zelda]
    
    PRINCESS ZELDA(TMLN 1) (after bridge appears)
    The time to face the wind
    sorcerer Vaati is at hand.
    
    There will be many traps
    waiting for you in the
    Palace of Winds.
    
    Reaching the fiend will
    be no small task.
    
    Yet you, Link, are the only 
    one who can save Hyrule.
    
    The maidens and I and the
    fortunate people whom you
    have rescued...
    
    those whom the darkness
    claimed, the Knights of
    Hyrule, and many others...
    
    We all believe that you, Link,
    will deliver us from this
    peril and bring us peace.
    
    And I...
    I will wait for you.
    
    Please, do not forget...

    PRINCESS ZELDA(TMLN 2)
    Link!
    
    You've defeated the
    wind sorcerer Vaati.
    
    ...!
    
    [Pieces of the palace begin falling]
    
    This palace was built
    on the power of Vaati's
    magical strength.
    
    With its master gone, it can
    no longer retain its form.
    
    We can't stay here any
    longer! We must escape
    to the Tower of Winds!
    
    [Inside palace, rubble is falling; a voice is heard]
    
    GANON'S VOICE(TMLN 3)
    This was all there was to
    the wind sorcerer Vaati, eh?
    
    Before the Four Sword, you
    were at your wit's end.
    
    Useless cur!
    
    I did not steal enough power
    from the Hyruleans.
    
    My blood boils, heroes! It
    seethes at the sight of you!
    
    I thirst for destruction!
    For the pure release of
    rage, the power of wrath!
    
    Four Sword or no, my
    trident will reduce you
    to nothingness!
    
    I'm waiting, you worms!
    
    [A blue shadowy cloud is seen leaving the palace]
    
    
    ~TOWER OF WINDS~
    
    PRINCESS ZELDA
    What's going on?
    Why is the Tower of Winds
    beginning to collapse?
    
    Link!
    We have to get out quickly!
    
    [Zelda now guides Link toward the exit, stopping when there are enemies 
    blocking her path, which Link must defeat]
    
    PRINCESS ZELDA (later)
    There are still monsters
    about. If Vaati did not call
    them, then...who did?
    
    [Hoard of soldiers appear surrounding Links and Zelda; Link defeats them]
    
    PRINCESS ZELDA (later)
    What is this sense of dread
    that fills the air?
    
    PRINCESS ZELDA (later)
    While we linger here, the
    tower is crumbling about
    us! We must hurry!
    
    PRINCESS ZELDA (later)
    The tower's collapsing...
    I sense a tremendous
    power approaching!
    
    PRINCESS ZELDA (later)
    The exit's not much 
    farther!
    
    [A soldier with a ball and chain appears, which Link must defeat]
    
    PRINCESS ZELDA (later)
    The exit's nearby!
    
    Hu-Hurry!
    
    [The floor beneath their feet crumbles and collapses; they all fall]
    
    [After landing, the same shadowy cloud from the Palace of Winds appears before 
    Zelda and Link]
    
    PRINCESS ZELDA(TMLN 1)
    What?! That raw patch of
    darkness, deeper than the
    blackest night...
    
    Is... Is that Vaati?
    
    No, it's not the wind
    sorcerer...
    
    No matter, I must use my
    power to seal it away!
    
    [Zelda attempts to use an orb of light to seal it away]
    
    Can't breathe... My strength
    is failing me...
    
    The very air around me is
    growing thin...dying...
    
    I only need a bit...
    more power...
    
    GANON's VOICE(TMLN 1)
    MORE!!
    
    Enough!
    
    The princess of Hyrule and
    all her power amounts to
    nothing!
    
    Zelda! I, Ganon, now seal
    you away forever!
    
    [Zelda is taken captive; out of the shadowy cloud emerges a pig like beast 
    wielding a trident...Ganon...duh]
    
    GANON(TMLN 2)
    Gwah haa haaaa!
    Weaklings! Incompetent
    fools!
    
    You so-called heroes do
    not stand even a gnat's 
    chance of harming me!
    
    Even if you worms attack
    in a group,
    
    I will skewer the lot of
    you on my mighty trident!!
    
    [Final Final Battle: Ganon; midway through the battle, Zelda breaks her bonds]
    
    PRINCESS ZELDA(TMLN 2)
    Ganon... This beast was once
    of the Gerudo... Once human.
    He was called Ganondorf!
    
    King of Darkness, ancient
    demon reborn. The wielder
    of the trident!!
    
    [Zelda makes another orb of light energy]
    
    Yet now...
    While Ganon's power has
    waned...
    
    I will pour all of my
    remaining strength into
    this ball of light!
    
    While it is suffused with
    power, I will release it
    and strike!
    
    At that time, use this!
    
    [Link receives a bow]
    
    Fire at the ball of light
    with all your might!
    
    If we combine our powers,
    we may yet be able to seal
    Ganon away from the world!
    
    Link! You must hold back
    Ganon until my ball of
    light is ready!!
    
    GANON(TMLN 2)(with glowing orange aura)
    Do you think to stop me?
    You have not even a fool's
    chance of facing my power.
    
    Once I am finished here, I
    shall be rid of your Princess
    Zelda forever!
    
    [When you hit Ganon with the ball of light, he is suspended in the ball of 
    light; the six shrine maidens appear and return to human form around him, 
    casting a light spell]
    
    PRINCESS ZELDA(TMLN 1)
    Now! Hold the Four Sword
    over your head!
    
    GANON(TMLN 1)
    Gyaaaaaaa! What... What
    have you done? I am the
    King of Darkness!
    
    I cannot be destroyed by
    insects like you! Noooo!!!
    
    [The light grows more intense, then goes into the Four Sword. Ganon disappears 
    with the light]
    
    PRINCESS ZELDA(TMLN 3)
    ... ...
    
    Link.
    
    We whom you protected, and
    all of Hyrule as well...
    
    We will struggle together
    and grow stronger than
    before.
    
    We will work as one, as the
    four of you have done.
    We will work...together.
    
    Now, the Four Sword...
    
    Place the sword that sealed
    away the darkness on the
    pedestal.
    
    ~FOUR SWORD SANCTUARY~
    
    [The shrine maidens and Zelda surround the pedestal. Link comes forth; four 
    swords rise up and merge into one, which is then lowers into the pedestal. The 
    maidens create a triangular prism around the Four Sword, and then turn into 
    fairies and leave. Link and Zelda then exit together]

    Boss Descriptions~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(9.2)
    
    LEVEL 1
    
    Phantom Ganon
    Phantom Ganon hurls a ball of energy toward you and you must hit it 
    back and forth until it strikes him. Once he is hit, he will fall on 
    one knee and you must hit him with your sword several times to defeat 
    him.
    
    This boss has the same appearance as Wind Waker's Phantom Ganon.
    
    LEVEL 2
    
    Stone Arrghus
    This giant eye encrusted with stone opens and closes. It is encompassed 
    by several small stone eyes. Before you can harm the giant stone eye, 
    you must use the boomerang to retrieve small stone eyes, and then kill 
    them with your sword. Once the small stone eyes are all gone, the giant 
    eye chases you on the floor. You must wait until it stops, and then hit 
    it with your sword.
    
    LEVEL 3
    
    Dodongos
    The Dodongos breathe fire. They're exterior is too tough to penetrate. 
    The only way to hurt them is to throw a bomb in their mouths the moment 
    they open. They will swallow the bomb and it will explode inside of 
    them.
     
    Same dodongos as in LoZ and OoS/A.
    
    LEVEL 4
    
    Big Poe
    To defeat Big Poe, you must light the torches and anger him. He then 
    sucks you up and you must battle the small creature inside of Big Poe. 
    
    This appears to be the same Poe as in WW. It also follows the same two 
    stages.
    
    LEVEL 5
    
    Phantom Ganon X 4
    Phantom Ganon appears and splits into four. The three false Phantom 
    Ganons throw silver balls of energy toward you, while the true Phantom 
    Ganon throws colored balls of energy that correspond to who must hit it 
    back. When the ball of energy hit Phantom Ganon, he becomes one again, 
    and you hit him with the Four Sword.
    
    LEVEL 6
    
    Metal Moldorg
    The key to defeating this giant Molgorg is its tail. The tail changes 
    color every time it's damaged by the Link with the tunic that matches. 
    After a while, the Molgorg splits into two Molgorgs, each following the 
    same colored tail routine.
    
    LEVEL 7
    
    Frostare
    A giant ice covered eye hangs from the ceiling. Several small ice eyes 
    fly around the larger one. After defeating the small ice eyes using 
    Roc's Feather to jump high enough to hit them with your sword, you can 
    focus one the giant ice eye. You are unable to hit the eye with your 
    sword, so you must step on the four switches hidden in one of the rooms 
    to make more ledges appear. You then hop across and climb the ladder. 
    In the top room, a dragon like thing blocks your path. If you strike it 
    with your sword, you will notice that it hurts the giant ice eye. When 
    the root is agitated enough, the ice eye begins to fly around. Hit the 
    eye with your sword and it will fall to the ground. Attack the eye from 
    above to defeat it.
    
    LEVEL 8
    
    Vaati
    Vaati spins in a circle, creating a cyclone beneath him. Using the 
    proper timing, throw bombs into the wind funnel to damage Vaati. Vaati 
    then protects himself with purple orbs, forcing you to utilize a cannon 
    to stab him from above with your sword. This alternates between the 
    upper and lower levels. (TV screen and GBA screen)
    
    Note: There is no dramatic climax when Vaati is defeated.
    
    Ganon
    Ganon twirls around his trident, which makes him invisible and impossible to 
    hit. He then shoots rays of energy out of the tip of his trident. Try to hit 
    him with your sword as often as possible. He sends you to the dark world, where 
    you must defeat stafos to return to the light world and continue your battle. 
    After a while, Ganon will warp Link and himself to a different spot in the 
    room. After he stops spinning, he throws his trident around the room, with a 
    blue blaze where it's traveled. After you hurt him enough, he begins to breath 
    hard and Zelda comes down and is released from her bondage. Now Ganon has an 
    orange glow/shadow. He spins his trident and then shoot green (or multi color 
    for multi player) balls of energy out of the tip of his trident. If you hit 
    enough back and hit him, he will collapse, breathing heavily. Zelda will 
    release her ball of light, which will circle around him until you hit it with 
    an arrow and hit him (or until he regains his strength).  When you hit him, he 
    is held hostage within the light orb. He is then sealed within the Four Sword.

    I made some notes during my play-through of the game, keeping Twilight Princess
    in mind.  Perhaps these notes will spur some cogs in intuitive theorists.  
    
    -Ominous Clouds covered Hyrule
    -Vaati's main followers are the magicians/mages
    -Ganon's main followers are the Deku Scrubs, while the Gerudos shun him.
    -The Knights of Hyrule were defeated by Ganon and his trident.
    -There's no mention of a war or the Imprisoning War.
    -The Dark Mirror sealed away a dark tribe, which sounds a lot like the Twilight
    Mirror
    -Kakariko Village taken over by thieves, in LttP, the Dark World is taken over
    by thieves.
    -Ganon has the same intentions as in LttP/TP ---> Land of Darkness
    -Green Knight: REMAKE Hyrule into land of darkness? Probably meant "recreate"
    -Dark Mirror stolen, slab of rock could be TP's slab only moved..
    -Temple of Darkness<=>Temple of Light/Time (Lost Woods/Dark World)
    -Gerudo only exist in OoT, and FSA
    -Why is Ganondorf accepted by Gerudo in OoT, but not in FSA?
    -Same pyramid as ALttP?
    -Zuna's descendants build the Pyramid, and possibly the trident.
    -Royal jewels look exactly the same as the Four Elements (TMC)
    -Jewels function is to revel the Tower of Winds, while Elements function is to
    power the Four Sword, but the Four Sword doesn't change at all when the Royal
    Jewels are set, nor is there a said relationship between the jewels and the Four
    Sword.  
    -Vaati has no dialogue whatsoever, while he was quite the babble mouth in
    FS/TMC, he might be nothing more than a pawn
    -Vaati sort of "wisps" away once defeated.  No explosion or dramatic climax.
    -Ganon the demon Reborn? No descriptive origins of trident, or the spirit of the
    trident, could this be the spirit of Ganon sealed within the trident? 
    -Link has a party at the castle in his honor
    -Last scene of credits shows Zelda entering a room with a Triforce over the
    doorway, which glows bright as the screen fades.  This is the only reference to
    the Triforce in the game.

    Anyone may email me to discuss the guide, point out errors, or discuss time line
    theories.  I know there are errors, and I will do my best to edit and fix 
    anything that's out of place.  I will always try to keep the guide up-to-date; 
    changing ratings, notes, and adding content with each new Zelda released.  
    Thanks for reading.
