Whats the timeline for Zelda?

The creators of Zelda said

"Yes there is a master timeline but its confidential document!" explains Aunuma-san. "The only people to have access to that document are myself, Mr. Miyamoto and the director of the title. We cant share it with anyone else! I have already talked to Mr. Miyamoto about this so I am comfortable in releasing this information - this title [Skyward Sword] takes place before Ocarina of Time. if I said that a certain title was 'the first Zelda game', then that means that we cant ever make a title that takes place before that! So for us to add titles to the series, we have to have a way of putting the titles before or after each other."

So we know that Skyward sword is before Ocarina so my theory is that:
1.Skyward Sword
2.Four Swords
3.Ocarina of Times
4.Majora's Mask
5.Twilight Princess
6.Phantom's Hourglass
7.Oracle of Ages
8.Wind Waker
9.A Link to the Past
10.Link's Awakening
11.Adventure of Link

(It's just my random guess Im not saying Im right in anyway :P)

What do you think it is? Or Which one was your favorite?


  1. Always wonder about the timeline lol. You should check out the zelda timeline theory video on really in-depth video! Just google it if you can't find it.

    Look forward to more!

  3. 0) The actual story of the Legend takes place. The Prince of hyrule learns of a great power called the Triforce, and desires it for himself. An evil wizard convinces him that his sister, Zelda, knows of its location, but when she won't talk the wizard casts a spell on her leaving her locked in an eternal slumber. The kick-back from the spell kills the wizard, and splits the prince into two, his evil power hungry side and his good side. (This is the origin of Link / Dark Link). The Good Prince is left guilt-stricken over his sister, so he has her moved to a temple, and decrees that from that day forth all girls born into the royal family of Hyrule will be named Zelda.

    1) Minish Cap. It's where the green hat becomes a staple, and it's before the Master Sword becomes the /Master/ Sword

    2) Skyward Sword. Furthering the path of the Master Sword to become the icon it is.

    3) Ocarina of Time. The first true use of the Master Sword as the bane of evil. Ocarina of Time splits the timeline in half. The timeline when Link is still a kid, and the timeline he left behind as an adult. We'll call Link (Kid) Timeline A, and the other Timeline B. Timeline

    A) Link goes back and warns Zelda about Ganon's plans. He's locked in the Twilight Realm, a sort of prison for the criminals of Hyrule. Then...

    4A) Majora's Mask. Link takes a trip to Termina after deciding to leave Hyrule behind. After he saves Termina from Skull Kid he continues his journey for a place to settle down, and gets lost in the sea.

    5A)Link's Awakening. This game is all actually just a fever dream after Link is left shipwrecked. I believe this game is sort of like a premonition that Link is having about Ganon preparing to escape the Twilight Realm.

    6A)Twilight Princess. Ganon escapes the Twilight Realm.

    7A) Original Legend of Zelda.

    8A) Zelda II. In the instruction book it states that Zelda II takes place a few seasons after the original Legend of Zelda.

    9A) Four Swords. Four Swords marks the return of Vaati, and this is where Ganon gets the Trident of Power that he later uses in...

    10A) A Link to the Past. At the end of Link to the Past, the Triforce is reset and Ganon is presumably dead.

    11A) Oracle of Ages, or Seasons.
    Meanwhile, in Timeline B.

    4B) Windwaker, 100 years after Ocarina. This game also resets the triforce.

    5B) Phantom Hourglass

    6B) Spirit Tracks. Neither of the two DS games really bothers the reset triforce, so...

    7B) Oracle of Ages, or Seasons. One of these games takes place in each time line, and the events occur at the exact same time and if you sync the events with a GameBoy, like they would be in the real timeline, it leads to the resurrection of Ganon.

  4. I think I'm one of the only gamers that has never played a zelda game. XD It's not that i don't like the idea of the game I've just never came across it.
