Spirit of the Hero: A Theory on the Hero of Time’s Downfall and Legacy

Compared to other games in the Zelda series, Twilight Princess never offered a definitive backstory that relates it to other games. Although its timeline placement is firmly secured on the child arc, ages after Majora’s Mask, the game doesn’t begin with a set connection to another game. That is not to say that Twilight Princess is without a backstory entirely, because all throughout the game references are made to a hero of old, and the conflict surrounding him. Beyond mere references, in Twilight Princess Link comes face to face with the referenced ancient hero. In Twilight Princess, the Hero of Time makes an appearance, as the character that has come to be known as the Hero’s Shade. (3DS, Wii, Wii U, Zelda Series)
