The following was translated by ShiKage, Snow and GlitterBerri. It has yet to be fully looked over.

Era: Game:
The Shadow Era Four Swords Adventures

•The Gerudo Thief Ganondorf’s Reincarnation

Hundreds of years passed since Ganondorf’s defeat. The relationship between the Gerudo tribe, Hyrule Kingdom was restored and peace returned.

However, a new Ganondorf was born. Ganondorf defied the laws of the Gerudo village and invaded the ancient pyramid and took the wicked weapon called the “Trident.” Then, to bring darkness over Hyrule, he stole the Mirror of Darkness from the temple in the forest.

•The Scheme to Obtain the Power of Darkness

In order to cover Hyrule in darkness, Ganondorf stole power from the people. First, he set his eyes on reviving the sealed Wind Sorcerer Vaati of the Force Era. Then, he created a Shadow Link with the power of the Mirror of Darkness and threw Hyrule into chaos.

•The Revival of the Wind Sorcerer Vaati

In Hyrule, which was clouded by darkness, the Princess Zelda of this era felt uneasy, so she brought the six maidens and Link to the sanctuary to make sure the seal on Vaati wasn’t weakening. However, the moment they opened the gate to the sanctuary, Shadow Link appeared and sent the maidens somewhere in Hyrule with the power of darkness.


•The Pyramid

A demonic tool created from darkness sleeps within this pyramid from which no one returns alive. It is located beside a stone monument with an inscription that reads “claim this if your soul cries out for destruction and conquest”.

•The Mirror of Darkness

This mirror reflects the evil heart of its user, birthing demons. Imprisoning the creatures of darkness that once attacked Hyrule, it was hidden within a temple to deprive it of any connection with the Dark World.

Its relation to the magical mirrors that exist in other branches of the timeline, such as the Mirror of Twilight that connects to the Twilight Realm, is unclear.

•Wind Sorcerer Vaati

The Princess Zelda and Link of that era used the Four Sword to seal Vaati in the Four Sword Shrine, which couldn’t be seen by grown-ups. Even after the sealing, the Four Sword Shrine continued to be watched over by the young Princess Zelda and the maidens.

•Shadow Link

Created from the Mirror of Darkness, this demon is a spitting image of Link and wields a dark power. The thoughts and resentment of Ganondorf, previously defeated, traversed time and space and were born anew in the form of Link. What appeared in the Four Sword Shrine was a trap sent by Ganondorf in order to break the seal.

    How is the Four Sword Adventure era occur AFTER Twilight Princess? I mean, The Gerudo were all wiped out in TP but clearly appear in FSA…. So we are to believe they retconned that to “The Gerudo fled and hid” ? I guess…

    Also, How many times do the Gerudo have to give birth to Ganondorf before they realize they should probably KILL ALL BABY BOYS?!?!? lol I mean, it’s a male born every hundred years, right? So What.. you get 2 or 3 kings that aren’t the devil?

    • Snow より:

      Actually, they’ve never said anything about the Gerudo being wiped out, so them existing in FSA isn’t a retcon. After all, we never actually visit Gerudo Valley in TP, just Gerudo Desert.

      And the Gerudo have likely existed for quite a few centuries, so there have probably been a good deal of benevolent kings. Killing all boys because of a few bad eggs is a bit extreme.

    True in TP we only visited Gerudo Desert but isn’t that ment to be the same place from OoT?

    • Snow より:

      Since the places differ in name, layout and location, they’re most likely different from one another. Gerudo Desert and Gerudo Valley are probably both part of a bigger desert region than we get to explore in any one game.

    I have a question regarding the paragraph that says :
    “The Princess Zelda and Link of that era used the Four Sword to seal Vaati in the Four Sword Shrine, which couldn’t be seen by grown-ups.”

    What does that mean? Is this refering to FS!Zelda and Link sealing Vaati? Or did FSA!Zelda Link seal Vaati again sometime prior to the events of FSA?
