The Forest Temple by cheddarpaladin The Forest Temple by cheddarpaladin
So I have this theory. Ocarina of Time could have certainly allowed for co-op. At the very least AI partners. I mean, all the sages are just sitting around for most of the game, but all of them show some combat prowess or magic skill. And freakin' Sheik! Imagine if Sheik actually used the weapons she was given in SSB. Now that would have been awesome.

But anyway, I got a request for an image featuring Saria and I decided to use that opportunity to illustrate my theory. To go along with that theory, I equipped Saria with Link's Kokiri gear that he just seems to lose during his seven year hiatus. I figure it makes perfect sense for her to use them, she's seemingly capable of everything young Link is capable of, n' then some. So why not?

Oh, for those of you who are unfamiliar with what's going on here, a doppleganger of Ganondorf is the boss of the Forest Temple. His shtick is jumping in and out of paintings on his flying horse. Failure to guess which painting he's charging from results in pain.

All characters are owned by Nintendo.

Now that would be awesome, not only in boss battles, but also for certain places to explore and unlock new secrets that only the sages can hinted Link of. Perhaps in the next Zelda game after Zelda Wii U should this co-op feature shall be presented and used.

Very nice work and neat composition as well! :D

It would add a lot of depth to the gameplay if you could switch characters, or the story alternated between Link and others throughout the narrative. It's like they keep toying with the idea, with Link turning into the wolf in TP and being able to manipulate people in the Wind Waker. Even the statues in Majora's Mask. But nothing substantial.
If anything it'd be a nice surprise to see Link get trapped and have to get busted out by Sheik or one of the sages or someone.

Glad you like it and thanks for the :+fav:!

This shows Saria needs to be announced as a playable standalone DLC character.

It would be so fun to play as Saria. I can see her handling similarly to Young Link but with a few unique powers. Maybe some exclusive Ocarina songs. I see her having something like the big leaf introduced in the Wind Waker to get over gaps that Young Link couldn't without a cucco. Other cool things.
I don't think Nintendo would ever do anything like that in future games, but I think it's about time they had sidequests where you get to play as Zelda, at the very least. Someone other than JUST Link.

Thanks for the comment and the :+fav: as well!

I figured if she were ever in a situation where she'd need to defend herself, she'd probably have the set after Link flashes forward.

I've been saying this for years. Though I'm even bigger on deathmatching, this battle being co-op would have been some crazy stuff.

Great, now I've got this image stuck in my head of Link bashing one of Phantom Ganon's magic attacks at Saria, who promptly whacks it straight into Phantom's back...

It's be nice to talk to them between temples. As they're all different, they'd probably have something different to say. Give advice or something like that.
