New Topic Decided! It's...


...So yeah. It's not going to be as serious as Majora's Mask and Mother 3, but, well, get used to it. It isn't going to be as serious, so for now we're mostly going to be doing silly stuff.

We'll be reviewing such topics as:

  • Glass Joe is paid to be a Jobber
  • Doc Louis and Mr. Sandman fought for champion at the same time
  • Every player is allowed to use one cheat
  • There is only one rule in the game, wear gloves
  • TD Mr. Sandman wanted Little Mac to win
Stay tuned folks.

Majora's Mask : THE END

I've dried up pretty much everything I want to cover about Majora's Mask, so I think I'll be getting on a different topic.   Another update today when I figure that out.

Could Majora's Mask Be Made By the Twili Tribe?

Warning: This video contains spoilers and unfitting music.

Some people believe that some things seen in Majora's Mask are by-products of the Twili tribe. This video explains best, but I really don't believe in it, and, if anything, it's only evidence for Zant being a cross between Majora and the Garo Master. I would also like to add that nobody had thought of Twilight Princess at the time, so there's no intentional foreshadowing involved. It's not one of the more likely theories from Zelda, and even Tetraforce seems more likely (and it was Jossed by Word of God!). I would also like to add that if this is substantial evidence, there is substantial evidence that Ganondorf and Link are related, seeing as how they're both left-handed.

Judge for yourself.

BONUS POST: Could Majora Be A Woman?


Majora is a demigod, and thus genderless. Shut up about it. 

Is Every Mask a Trapped Soul?

"We will greet the morning together." "Well, I'm gonna go make sure you have a morning to greet."

Ok, I finally got a schedule worked out. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. But anyway, today's post will be about the possibility that every mask in Majora's Mask is a trapped soul, rather than just the transformation masks. The reason we believe this is because, if you talk to the Happy Mask Salesman wearing a non-transformation mask, he will tell you that "this mask is filled with etc." While it's likely not every mask is filled with a soul, it is almost certain that every mask is filled with part of a soul, or a very strong emotion. What would the Circus Leader's Mask be without the incredibly strong emotions of sadness that come with it, or the Bunny Hood without Grog's amazingly powerful love of the wild? The Stone Mask without the powerful... inconspicuous-ness of the poor soldier? 

This theory seems pretty likely.

Is It Possible To Bring Darmani, Mikau, and Deku Butler's Son Back To Life?

Alright. We all know that playing the Elegy of Emptiness takes your soul and sort of casts it and makes a shell out of it. Which would mean it's your soul's body. We also know that playing the Song of Healing takes a soul and turns it into a mask. So, what if you were to play the Elegy of Emptiness to make, say, Mikau's soul's body. Then what if you were to take the actual soul (a la the Zora Mask) and reattach it to the body. Essentially, you have reunited body and soul, thus making Mikau Mikau again. Of course, this means that if there were a fly around Mikau's face, and he swatted it at just the wrong angle, the mask could fall off, and, if Link weren't around, he'd be in hot water. Also, would you put the mask on Elegy of Emptiness Deku, or the Sad Tree?

Anyway, stay tuned for more Majora's Mask.


Anyone who can find the unintentional play on words gets 10 points.

Next Up, Majora's Mask

Yes, for the next few days, I will be posting Majora's Mask theories. First of all, I'd like to say that I will not cover the "Sad Tree is the Deku Butler's son" theory, as it has been confirmed by Word of God. I will, however, be covering such theories as:

  • Majora's Mask was made by the same creators of the Fused Shadow.
  • At the end of the game, Link uses the Elegy of Emptiness to revive Mikau, Darmani, and the Deku Butler's son.
  • All of the masks are trapped souls, rather than just the transformation masks. 
I will also not cover anything regarding Termina as anything other than an alternate universe, seeing as how Word of God (and the manual) state clearly that it is exactly that, made with "leftover creation power" from the 3 goddesses.

Mother 3: The Unused Backgrounds *AMAZINGLY SPOILERRIFIC*

In the process of the Mother 3 fan translation, something utterly horrifying was unearthed. This was the unused background for the final Masked Man fight. It is Purely Unrefined High Octane Nightmare Fuel. At first, I believed in the theory that Lucas kills the Masked Man, before he figures out that it was Claus. This causes some sort of dementia, and Lucas must fight it. That's right. He must fight the dementia brought on by killing his own brother. But in actuality it was only the original background for the Masked Man fight. The plot would have otherwise unfolded regularly. Note that the following video is extremely frightening.

Another example of things too utterly terrifying (apparently) to be put in Mother 3 is the original script of Tanetane Island. Apparently, Itoi himself was behind the change, apparently being too scary for the creator of the series, let alone Giygas and the things that are on Tanetane Island in the game, which are pretty damn scary already. Now that's scary.

Flint's Doorknob From Mother 3: A Metaphor for Happiness?

 Welcome all to Part 1 of today's Mother 3 double feature. In this post, we will see if Flint's doorknob from Mother 3 was really meant to be a metaphor for happiness. Flint's doorknob is seen by most as a running gag, appearing a few times throughout the game. I'm going to explain the doorknob's journey, pointing out where this might be true. I'm sure you'll be able to see why people believe this. Possible spoilers ahoy.

The doorknob  begins, of course, with Flint. This is before anything bad happens whatsoever in the perfect utopia known as Tazmily Village. Then, Thomas bangs at Flint's door bearing bad news. Sunshine Forest is on fire! Thomas tugs on the doorknob, and it eventually breaks off and is lost. At the SAME TIME that things start to turn dire for Flint. Then we don't see the doorknob again until the LAST Chapter in the game, nor does pretty much anything go right. We later see it in Porky's lair. Near the very end of the game. Lucas sees it and, inadvertently, kicks it off a cliff. Now, this is the only part where it may be confusing. However, it probably means that, being so close to the last needle, you feel you're nearing the happiness of the end. However, you find that it is actually a ways away. Almost as if the happiness that were right there went a long distance away, say, a cliff. Finally, at the end, you find that you can walk around the end screen. If you walk around enough, you will find that everyone is alright and happy! And at the same time you find happiness, you also find the doorknob. That's right, if you walk around enough, you get a message saying: "You found the Doorknob!"

It looks like Epileptic Trees are probably right this time.

If you love Mother 3, don't mind mildly scary images, and are wondering, "What else could have happened in Mother 3?", stay tuned for the next episode.
