A big one would be what he says after you get the final Sword Technique. That pretty much says it all.

"Those are for only for the one who carries the blood of the hero...the one whose spirit is that of the sublime beast."
While neither of these in bold point to him being OOT Link, they do suggest that he was the legendary hero, both because he knows the legendary techniques and is the golden wolf.


"Although I accepted life as the hero, I could not convey the lessons of that life to those who came after."
Again, this doesn't suggest that he was OOT Link, but it does suggest that he was THE hero and not just A hero.

There's nothing at all that suggests he is OOT Link, other than timeline placement and circumstantial stuff, like suggesting that Link turned into a stalfos from being lost without a fairy, etc.

Maybe he was OoT Link's father. I think in OoT they said Link's father died in war. It's just a theory though. I mean how do we know his father wasn't a hero?

SuperSaiyanJirrue; I think that's called ignorance.

LionHeart, we just got finished discussing how he's not a Stalfos. :(

Anyway, the "go forth, my child" line is ambiguous. I highly doubt it's because Link is his literal spiritual or genetic child. The Hero's Spirit/Shade is Link's instructor. Therefore, in a sense, Link is his "child", acting as a father figure who teaches his offspring the secrets of life. Think of how much of a parent's role of teaching a child right from wrong has shifted to teachers in elementary school.

I mean, look at this part.
"Although I accepted life as the hero, I could not convey the lessons of that life to those who came after."
If OoT Link knew those techniques, where were they in OoT/MM? Why is he eight feet tall as the Hero's Spirit? Why is his armor so drastically different? Why does he only have one eye? Why is his sword different than any sword Link has ever wielded, and indeed, different from any other sword up to this point?

It's more likely that he's OoT Link's father, or an ancestor of Rusl, and those don't even have flimsy proof.

I wasn't suggesting he was a stalfos, I was saying that people are suggesting he was a stalfos. I no longer subscribe to that theory, but quite a few people do.

Is there a particular reason why?

I also like to believe he's OOT Link, not for a very good reason, but just because I want to believe that the designers put a wink to OOT in TP. I don't care if there's no real proof for it. Unless one day Nintendo makes a game that falls in between OOT and TP and explains why he CAN'T be OOT Link, but I don't see that happening
