Reasons

A lot of people have questioned the point of Midna destroying the Mirror. I know the reason why, but no matter how you slice it, it'll sound bad. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Krystal 00:06, 29 July 2013

I hesitate to use the following template, but with the way you word it, it just sounds like speculation, so I encourage you to share it on a forum instead.

The point was, Nintendo needed an excuse to cut her off from Link, because she possibly loved him, but Miyamoto and Aonuma think that Link belongs with Zelda, and no other.--Krystal 06:48, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

Well, that's definitely a topic for forums. It's rather irrelevant to the wiki, especially since it's an interpretation and likely not based on their word. - TonyT S C 08:06, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
OFF TOPIC
This discussion is off topic.

Zelda Wiki is an encyclopedia, not a forum. Please consider continuing this discussion on Zelda Universe's forums.


Talk Pages are meant to discuss improvements to the article, not the subject of the article. Comments like "This is my favorite item" do not belong here.

Update?

Why does this article need to be updated? Is it Hyrule Warriors? What information needs to be added? The DJ (talk) 01:12, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

Mostly information about HW, although I guess it's better to just wait until the game is released in 2 weeks in Japan. Also, it is still lacking some sources from the information that has been released so far, which also will be easier to add when the game is released. Chuck (talk) 02:41, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

Midna starts off as an Enemy in HW

Wreck-It Ralph

In the film Wreck-It Ralph, isn't it plausible that Vanellope Von Schweetz could be based on Midna? It's a movie based entirely off of video games, and the two of them have a few things in common...They're both short, snarky, somewhat impish characters who wear ponytails, and both were princesses previously, only to be dethroned by psychotic villains and reduced to dimunitive outcasts - the only difference between them in this regard is that Vanellope had her memories erased and didn't know she was a princess. Both characters end up teaming up with heroes, somewhat reluctantly, in both cases, and the villain they were facing turns out to just be a front for the greater-scope villain that was behind everything. (King Candy was really Turbo in disguise, and Zant was only acting under Ganondorf's power.)

...In addition, Vanellope's glitching does somewhat resemble Midna whenever she uses her power to phase through walls and such...Wouldn't this be worth a mention in the trivia section? Mistress Fi (talk) 01:44, 7 December 2015 (UTC)

I'm afraid that we don't entertain comparisons to non-Nintendo series, especially without official word. And their similarities can easily be explained by taking a trip through TV Tropes, especially if you nit-pick convenient details. - TonyT S C 03:22, 7 December 2015 (UTC)

Zelda giving Midna the Triforce of Wisdom?

And we know this how? The verification doesn't verify anything about that. It says Zelda made sacrifices. Just because we know she made sacrifices doesn't mean we know the Triforce of Wisdom was the sacrifice. TrueZelda3 (talk) 20:22, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

I believe the reasoning was that Zelda lost her physical form in the Twilight Realm because of her sacrifice, while the Triforce allows a person from the world of light to remain in Twilight.
However, there's no indication that Midna has the ToW, so it's merely speculation. I have removed it. - TonyT S C 21:40, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Twili Midna's own page

Since Twili Midna had been selected to have her own page, just a few questions, will it only be for Non-Canon Information as her name? (Like how Toon Zelda, Toon Link and Young Link have their own page as Non-canon info?) and did she had the same Voice actor as the one from Twilight Princess? And lastly, would it be right to still put it as she is from the Era of Twilight? If yes, then maybe should Toon Zelda should have "Era of a new Hyrule" on her page as well? -- Wolfgerlion64 (talk) 17:00, 22 March 2018 (UTC)

Change of definition on Midna "imp" form

I am noticing that you have been removing my modification on the word "imp" replacing it with "creature" / "monster". I want to clarify that my modification has arguments. in the Japanese version of TP, Midna says herself "monster", and that word in Japanese means "Kaibutsu" = "monster. The word "imp" does NOT appear in the original dialogue or enter the category of "monster", it is just one of the many bad editions of Nintendo USA. Zelda games are supposed to be based on the original translations of Japan, not the USA. I already left the links 4 times and it seems that they do not want to accept that Midna is not an "imp", it is an invention of Nintendo USA.

I'm not sure how many ways I can explain this, but per Zelda Wiki policy, we are to base our content off of the American English canon, regardless of our personal opinions of it. While the difference between Midna referring to herself as a monster instead of an imp is interesting, it is a minor difference with little contextual difference and doesn't supersede our policy. TriforceTony (talk) 00:43, 29 May 2018 (UTC)
Hi
I understand your policies, weird because they seem to have an affiliation with Nintendo USA, right? It is not a personal opinion, because I have seen that they have put theories in other sections, but in my case I have solid arguments. The difference is that Midna is not an imp because an imp has horns, a long tail and a bad appearance. The artist who created Midna was based on a child combined with a monster, giving a mysterious appearance. But directly, her form does not belong to any kind of imp, not even the Miniblins (in her beta versions of Midna, she had that appearance, but it was discarded). The small form of Midna is unknown, and only refers to herself as a "monster." But hey, I wish that word "imp" is replaced by "monster" or "creature." My intention is not to be rebellious or to foment vandalism. I just rely on what the original Zelda games say. I respect his work on the wiki and I just wanted to give interesting information. Orzal (talk) 01:07, 29 May 2018 (UTC)
Neither Zelda Wiki nor its policies are in affiliation with Nintendo of America, though we happen to cover its products. Also though it seems apparent that Midna was speaking colloquially and not literally, an imp isn't required to have those qualities you've described by definition.
