You think that’s ludicrous. What about the fact that the most powerful creature in Hyrule is a chicken?
It’s a freakin chicken.
What I never understood was why a “wooden sword”? What a stupid weapon to go into battle with, it’s just a goddamn stick! Why couldn’t it have been made of bronze? That’s a good material for a starting sword. Then the White Sword could be made of steel, and the Magic Sword could be made of…I dunno…cheese or something I guess.
Seriously wood! What am I going to do with it, give Aquamentus a splinter!?!
You think bronze is easy for poor villagers to have lying around?
Iron then, I only said bronze because the color of the wooden sword is brown.
And those villagers aren’t poor, every time I go into their houses and ransack the place I find rupees in every pot, and they’re rich enough to keep refilling them after I leave.
And one more thing, it’s wood right, and it can shoot FRICKEN LASER BEAMS! How in dafuq?!? Only in Hyrule could a man pick his teeth with a toothpick and accidentally shoot himself in the face.
Nothing actually points to Link’s age in The Legend of Zelda, and the old man was simply helping him, not sending him on his quest x_x
if you took a wooden sword into the woods you could do some serious damage to the flora and fauna. a baseball bat is basically a wooden sword; if someone charged at me with a baseball bat i’d better believe they could kick my butt.
And thus the adventure starts…
Hey, a sharp stick HURTS. And if you’ve ever been hit with a stick, that’s painful.
And also, the manual did say that, just not 5 minutes earlier, he saved Impa from Moblins on that screen.
How exactly, and where did Impa go, is a mystery for the ages…. unless we get a 3D remake of Zelda 1 or soemthing (that would be sweet).
