Triforce Favoritism by Lethalityrush Triforce Favoritism by Lethalityrush
If you haven't played The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword or the Wind Waker, you should be aware that this contains some minor spoilers for the games...but if you're reading this it's probably too late because you maybe glanced over the comic/comments already... Oh well, at least Zelda games are more about the gameplay instead of the story.

Now then, did anyone find it strange that Link could make a wish with the Triforce without touching it compared to when Wind Waker Ganondorf couldn't? The King of Hyrule sure showed Ganondorf by stealing his wish, but in order to do that he was touching the Triforce. Hmmm...maybe Link just has better wishing skills...whatever.

Also, that pose with Link and Zelda was based off of something in another game. If you know what it is, feel free to say or not say what game it was based off of .;) (Wink) 

Oh, would you look at that Wii.

The Zelda/Link pose is from Fire Emblem Awakening!! I think it's from one of the male!Robin marriage scenes, yeah?

To be honest, in Skyward Sword he had like all of the parts in his hand and he's usually the only person doing stuff in the series so I think the Triforce really does just favorites him.

Zelda logic.

*Is way taller than actual height*

Link is a pretty short fellow. Look in Soul Calibur 2, he's the second smallest character, only taller than Talim who is 4 feet 8.

Personally, I think this is because in Skyward sword, the tri force hasn't actually split yet. :)

Wow, what an asshole
Karakitsune8 Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2015
Probably because he's the only one who could posses al three pieces at once and not make them split
MysticD Featured By Owner Edited May 17, 2015
maybe it has something to do with him being the legendery destined hero and Hylia made it acceptable for link to make the wish mentally?

I think it's only fair that Link can make a wish without touching the triforce.
I mean,think about it.
Ganon can use the triforce of power to do a lot of badass stuff.
Same for Zelda,she can use her triforce of wisdom to use magic!
And Link?His triforce of courage turns him into a frickin wolf from time to time ._.

maybe the Triforce favours pure hearted heroes

Link already touched, so he don't needed to touch again.

Maybe the Triforce grew weaker over the years or something. Since this takes place long before Wind Waker.

Sorry Ganondorf. Call the Nintendo complaints hotline the next time that happens. The number is 1-800-YOU-SUCK.

That's actually a good point. How come Link can get away with that shit and Ganondorf can't?

Poor WW Ganondork
TheShepard256 Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2015
Maybe you don't actually have to touch the Triforce, just that whoever's closest has dibs on their wish, and touching is as close as you can get.
logicalpencils Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2015
The reason I always had for the necessity to touch the Triforce for basically everyone except SS Link for it to work is as follows:

SS Link did not just earn the Triforce, like WW Ganondorf or LttP Link. He became worthy of it. He was the only person known in Hyrule history to actually forge his soul to become worthy of all parts of the Triforce. So, when he collected it, he became its owner, and could wish on it freely. 

A more simple way to explain Ganondorf's need to touch it is that there were multiple people who had a part of the Triforce, so the once who got the wish was decided by who touched it first. In this case, it is King Daphnes Nohansen Hyrule, former bearer of (most of) the Triforce of Wisdom.

Fun Fact, Malon from Ocarina of time may be part Gerudo!

Only gerudos have red hair, and they are girls.
Azzzanadra Featured By Owner May 5, 2015
well there are many girls out there that have red hair.
bigbulbasaur Featured By Owner May 6, 2015
Possible Gerudo Ancestry

It is possible that Malon's mother is a Gerudo or has Gerudo ancestry as Malon has vibrant red hair and her father, Talon, gives an interesting reaction when Link approaches him while wearing the Gerudo Mask, he will say that it looks like his wife, but then decides against it. If that is the case, that would raise the question on why she wasn't raised as a Gerudo (although this may be because of her differences compared to the other Gerudos).

And why does the Wind Waker version of Ganondorf have a cooler hair style than the TP version's? o3o

Isn't that pose from Cordelia's avatar confession from Fire Emblem Awakening?

The one in Link's thought bubble with Zelda.

I think I did hear this that only one with a pure heart could have a wish granted by the Triforce
TotalFreakZoid Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Anyone can make a wish on the Triforce, it was just the fact that the Triforce would split into three parts if it is touched by one of a evil heart. Ganondorf still got his wish of gaining control over Hyrule in Ocarina of Time. It was just that the Triforce split leaving him with just the Triforce of Power. He wanted to full Triforce in his arsenal, not just one.

TheAntsaBoy94 Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Maybe it was "registered" to the King of Hyrule as he touched it, and thus Ganondorf would need to touch it again to have his wish granted?
Weavileforce Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2014
Well, the Triforce is never meant to be in evil hands, and splits into three when Ganondorf tried to claim it. Maybe it has more safety mechanics to ensure villains have a disadvantage.

The pose you were referencing kinda reminds me of the FF8 logo. I don't know if that was your reference piece or not, but it is my best guess.

well isn't the courage triforce embedded into his DNA?

SSBB Ganondorf : "Stupid bigoted Triforce favoring Hylians... That's racist!"

Perhaps he should sue.

Demialc-neeb-sah-em Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2014
Probably just as well, all things concidered

i'd guess the triforce can choose what it grants but ganadorf's touch is powerful enoguth to override this.
draconichero18 Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2014
Oh gods I know I've seen the image in that thought bubble before. 

Also, maybe the spirit of the Triforce of Courage (I.e Link) is above the rules or something.

Because Link has more badassery than you, Ganondorf.
