Fifteen year after i played the game I unexpectedly cannot get this concern out of my head.

You are watching: Are link and zelda brother and sister

Zelda's mom is never shown. Link's mother passed away protecting him running away native a war; it's not hard to imagine that probably she to be being targeted since she to be the queen and also he to be the young prince. Zelda and Link are similar in appearance, both blond and also blue-eyed, with comparable features and also stature. Connect possessing the Triforce piece might have something to execute with him being the prince the Hyrule. Ganondorf and also Zelda are both royalty, for this reason it would fit.

Is it a stretch, or am i terminally stupid for not realizing this a decade ago?

They can be, although i don't think even if it is or no they space has any kind of forbearance ~ above the story or the truth that connect has the power of the triforce.

The king's (impa's?) first reaction come gannon's grab for power is to send zelda away. Maybe they sent out the baby link away and kept Zelda approximately in order to accomplish Hyrule's background of reincarnating zelda, link, and gannondorf (hylia, the hero, and demise) in really hopes of eventual peace for the land.

Although i am sure that past Zeldas have hooked increase with past Links, link is traditionally simply some random guy in Hyrule the the gods bestow through the courage to beat gannondorf and has no imperial blood nor is a descendant that the goddess Hylia.

Link's father is a knight, Zelda's father is the king. Unless Nintendo intentionally got in Arthurian legend, then ns doubt they space siblings

I think it is possible, yet not necessarily the case. I imagine that Link's and Zelda's relationship has actually just as numerous different reincarnations as their personifications.

They room not related, as they show up to be approximately the exact same age and unless castle have various mothers they can not be related due to the proximity of your ages. Over there is nothing in the game to hint the Zelda has actually a brother, or that the king's very first wife passed away on him and also he remarried just for that wife to die too.

That said they just bare a passing same to each other that is not strong enough to indicate they room related. Situation in allude Link has actually a much darker skin tone, and his hair is strawberry blond, when Zelda's is platinum blonde.

I don't think that's the case, however I can't speak that ns didn't have actually the same thoughts together you once the game first came out.

I think you're pretty far off v this one.

Link's mother involves Kokiri woodland after fleeing indigenous the Hylian polite war. I think it'd be relatively unlikely that the Queen of Hyrule would certainly flee the safety and security of castle city to hide in the forest with part kids and a magic tree.

Ganondorf is a little bit of a oddball in state of royalty too, being the only male born to the human being in a 2000 year bike (really..? one dude every 2000 years? ns don't gain it...) he instantly gets to rule because of his gender focused birth right. Also Ganondorf doesn't obtain the Triforce the power until after link opens the door of time and also breaks the seal on the sacred realm - so it's not choose the royalty gets the triforce pieces.

Don't get me wrong - i think it's a opportunity they might be related, yet the proof in OoT is much from compelling. It's a dead that all of this could be resolved if us had also a single piece that canonical evidence about Link's father.
