The Zelda timeline, redone

Are you a fan of the recently released official Zelda timeline, or does its third split make you cringe like a Dodongo in a bomb factory?  One Zelda fan, Zac Gorman, has created a parody of the timeline, providing humorous commentary, references to both the old cartoon and the CD-i games, and even more splits in Hyrule’s long and mysterious history.  Read on to follow the epic journey of “The Hero of Stuff and Whatever.”

"Well EXCUSE me, Princess!"

The large, flowing graphic can most easily be viewed by clicking here.  Clearly the parody doesn’t strictly follow the parameters of the true timeline, but rather pokes fun at some of the moments in Hyrulean history that didn’t appear in the timeline, such as the animated series and games like The Wand of Gamelon.  Did you manage to understand many of the other references that Gorman made?

    Hilarious idea, I say. Even through that timeline makes no sense at all, it's at least funny.

  • SpaGheTTi

    It was funny until I say the games he put under "Okay", while practically every game should've been under "Amazing".

    • Ezluke

      Yeah, that's how I felt too! I don't see why people think Twilight Princess is any less great than the others… And I think Spirit Tracks is better than Phantom Hourglass. 😡

      Yeah, I'm boggled Majora's Mask was only on the "Good" list. It's one of the best in the series IMO. So many amazing moments <3

    best timeline ive seen to date

  • Jason Rappaport

    This timeline is missing about six more splits around when Link had a donut that turned out to be a time portal. That was a mess.

    Zelda is more complicated than Doctor Who.

  • I get pretty much every reference. Does that mean I've been here too long? xD

  • Link and Cuccos

    There needs to be a Legend of Groose timeline. XD

  • Artemis

    Has anyone else seen the timeline someone made based on Link's hair?

    "Cringe like a Dodongo in a bomb factory"… hahaha, brilliant! 😀

  • LunarMew

    For the record, I like Wind Waker and Twilight Princess more than Link to the Past. Sue me.

    This timeline still surpasses the one from Nintendo, however.

      press charges against me too. I agree, I like those games more that a link to the past. I also like those games more that SS, but that's only because the motion controls are starting to annoy me.

      • I love all the Zelda games, and have been playing upon release for the past fourteen years, but Twilight Princess has been my favorite ever since I first began it. Brilliant. (;

  • hyRULES

    agreed! TP deserves so much better than that. it was amazing

  • MrDudeyRock

    This guy is a freaking genius.

    Zac Gorman, huh? Like the evil Gorman Brothers who try to steal the shipment of Chateau Romani? Coincidence? I think not.

    Already doesn't work. 😐
