The Ancient Hero

The ghost of the hero who instructs Link in his secrets. Some theorize that the fact that he holds his sword in his left hand means that his true form is that of Link from Ocarina of Time…

    Just a question: The Ancient Hero has been told to be The Hero of Time. I don’t think we can say that is just because the figure is holding his sword in his left hand. Wasn’t “Twilight Princess” originally one way on the Gamecube and then mirrored for the Wii? If that is true, wouldn’t the hero really have his sword in his right hand for the Gamecube version? I know that he is The Hero of Time, but I don’t think just by looking at what hand his sword is in his a good enough reason.

      You’ve got it backwards. The Hero’s Shade holds his sword in his right hand in the Wii version and in his left hand in the GameCube version. This means that he’s canonically left-handed since the GameCube is the original and canon version.

    I think this may be either child timeline hero of time or the spiritual predecessor of Link(aka Pre-Skyward)

    Hmm…I dont know what to assume. the hero also transforms into a golden wolf and has one eye missing.
