Welcome to the Temple of Courage, where various characters from the Legend of Zelda series battle out on a semi-weekly basis! You, the people, are the deciding factors in these matches. Functionally, all of these battles are popularity contests and not "battles" as such. For instance, in a boss vs. boss fight, we suggest that you vote for the one you like the most rather than whether or not one enemy would beat another in a legit fight. This is only a suggestion, though.
You can suggest a fight or vote or comment on others on the suggestions sub-article.
You may vote for your favorite or who you think would win in a competition between the two combatants that week.
You may only vote once.
If you are a user, please include your vote in the user section. If you are not a user, please include your vote in the anonymous section. However, any votes put in the anonymous sections will only count as a half vote.
When a new fight is created (the process should take no longer than a week, give or take a couple of days), the votes from the last fight will be totaled and winner decided.
Please sign your vote (unless you want to be counted as an anonymous vote) with a link to your username in front of your eventual voting text.

LLLLLLLLLLLLLLADIES AND GENTLEMEN! Once again, it's time for a brand new fight here in the Temple of Courage, and for fight number 63, we bring you two competitors with the offer of a lifetime!
In the yellow corner, sitting cross-legged on his flying carpet, hidden in the sands of the Haunted Wasteland, is a man with a deal you won't regret! Yes, 200 rupees for... Sorry! You're going to have to pay to find out! It's the CAAAAAAARRRRRPET MEEEEEERRRRRRRCHANT!
And the tan corner, the second greatest swordsmith in Death Mountain! Yes, the manufacturer of the famous Giant's Knife, the most powerful sword known to- oh, wait, it's broken. Anyway, heeeeeeerrrrre'sssss MEDIGOOOOOOOOOORRRRRRROOOOON!
So, two of Hyrule's biggest scammers meet for a battle royale. Who shall emerge victorious? That, my dear voters, is up to you. Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to send some good-faith money to a Nigerian prince, so LEEEEET"SSSS GEEET RRRRRREEEAAADY TO RUMMMMMMBBBBBLLLLLE! Yeah!
Votes for Carpet Merchant
Okay, 200 Rupees for Bombchus is a little ridiculous, but at least they're actually useful compared to the extremely fragile Giant's Knife. Plus, the Carpet Merchant is on a flying carpet over a whirlpool of quicksand, whereas Medigoron is just lying on his stomach in a small cave. Diachronos (talk) 16:03, September 7, 2009 (UTC)
Normally bombchus arent very usefull but when you try to discover the hidden mechanics of the game they are vital. Although 200 rupees is way too much there isnt many other options once the guy in the market run out (you can always try winn them in bowling but i hate that music and its thrity rupees ago for what could be bombchu) OniDark Link 18:14, September 7, 2009 (UTC)
I suck at the bowling game so this guy is the only way for me to get bombchus after the shop is sold out. Midna Rocks
Totaly, it is SO Squadala we are off! - Squiggles, Linkadinka, and Babyfloat
Votes for Medigoron
I will admit, the first time I played this game (but come on, I was 6...), I was totally and utterly fooled by Medigoron. 200 rupees completely down the drain. The Carpet Merchant not so much. I was always more wary about him. The way he made it sound all extragavent and wonderful, I was just kinda "Hmmmm" about it. Or maybe I was just paranoid after the Medigoron scam. Either way, Medigoron's scam was more convincing in my opinion. XykebYvolixZraliv 06:10, September 7, 2009 (UTC)
Medigoron's image is good enough not to make no picture at all a better alternative. Also, I like this guy and his overpriced, crummy knife. Almost like the ones you can buy on TV Shop. Besides, he's got barrels of explosives at his command. The Carpet Merchant (I thought that was Ellen DeGeneres...) only has at his disposition the most useless and pointless item of Ocarina of Time. Give that one a thinkin' you drunks. --AuronKaizer! 15:47, September 7, 2009 (UTC)
I nearly fell for this guy's scam, I was about to buy the Giant's Knife until I heard about the Biggoron Sword quest. It was only after I got the sword that I found out how useless the Knife was. Oddball464 16:56, September 7, 2009 (UTC)
His scam was a lot easier to fall for. Plus, he's a Goron, while the other guy is just a dude with big hair. Still, I think that the biggest scam in the whole series was Beedle and his "Complimentary ID."--MaloMart (talk) 18:26, September 7, 2009 (UTC)
Argh, I fell for BOTH scams. I didn't make it 5 feet without breaking that thing! But still, a giant goron vs. a hairy carpet dwelling whatever he is, The goron wins in all aspects of coolness--Redeadhunter (talk) 22:40, September 7, 2009 (UTC)
I fell for this scam the first time I played Ocarina of Time. There I was, thinking I had the best sword in the game...and then it broke. I was more overcome with laughter than anger, though, so I'll give this guy my vote. Jedimasterlink (talk) 22:48, September 7, 2009 (UTC)
Medigoron is friendly, but the carpent man don't show the item until I show the money. Damn CaioNV
He gives you powder kegs in MM and lets you get to the race track and in OoT the giants knife at least kicks butt until it breaks.
Im in here because I really don't like either... This dude makes you waste 200 rupees for a big knife that BREAKS. I like him in MM though because the powder kegs are needed for beating the game, but he does still scam you because the kegs he sells are 100 rupees, and the goron in clock town sells them for 50... Cybrwulf
Freakin' awesome sword, overpriced Bombchus. I think we know who wins here
Poor Medigoron can't live up to the expectations of his brother, but atleast we know who makes more money, right?
Medigoron is really annoying, and cheap, and I want to kill him, and the sword sucks... what was I saying? But he's still better.
i like medigoron better because even when the knife breaks u got this awsome little broken thing that u can swing around
wich in my opinion is awsome
We need an image for the Carpet Merchant. Unfortunately, I'm all sleepy and must retire for the night.--MaloMart (talk) 05:49, September 7, 2009 (UTC)
LLLLLLLLLLLLLLADIES AND GENTLEMEN! For our 62nd week, we here at the Temple of Courage take a break from our normal fighting and instead bring you a dance-off to end all dance-offs!
In the purplish corner, we have a being who is no longer one with the realm of the seeing and breathing. His one lingering regret is that he could not find a subject unto whom he could pass on his life's work, his dance. Translation: IT'SSSSSS KAMMMMMMAAAAAAAAAARRRRRROOOOOOOO!
And in the red corner, we have a strangely familiar looking dancer. All day and night he tries to use the power of dance to control the flow of time, sadly ignorant of the fact that only song can do that. Lookin' good in tassles, glitter and fantastic hair, it's TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOTT!
When two masters of the dance meet for a final showdown, who shall stand and who shall fall? That, good people, is up to you. Without further to do, LET'S GET READY TO RUMMMMMMMMMMMBLE! Yeah!
Votes for Kamaro
Even creepy half-naked ghosts are better than people imitating Elvis. XykebYvolixZraliv 17:12, September 1, 2009 (UTC)
Tott kinda freaked me out. Why Kamaro didn't is anyone's guess.--MaloMart (talk) 17:14, September 1, 2009 (UTC)
Kamaro is funny, and Tott's just an idiot dressed like Elvis. Diachronos (talk) 21:56, September 1, 2009 (UTC)
You get a mask and a Piece of Heart from helping him. And he doesn't dress like Elvis, need I say more? Oddball464 00:18, September 2, 2009 (UTC)
Like most of Majora's Mask, Kamaro is mysterious. Tott is just an idiot. I'm voting for the nearly-naked Ghost who dances atop a giant, frozen mushroom during the nighttime hours. --EveryDayJoe45 (talk) 01:29, September 2, 2009 (UTC)
Tott is just annoying. And Kamaro dances better anyway. Jedimasterlink (talk) 01:33, September 2, 2009 (UTC)
I liked Kamaro and his mask. He is very weird, but his song is cool. I like how when Link wheres his mask, it covers Link's whole face, and Link dances. I don't even know who the other guy is! The Midna 22:01 1 September 2009(talk)
He is a ghost. I am a fan of the undead. Who did you think I was going to vote for?Redeadhunter
Sadly, I do not in the least feel inclined to even out this fight by voting for poor Tott over there. He deserves to get pummeled, and if it is by a 95% naked ghost man, then so be it.DekuHeroFile:Deku Scrub.png
Kamaro is so mysterious and strange that he makes you WANT to know more about him. Tott just makes me want to unsee. He is creepy and an obvious elvis impersonator. And Kamaro's dance is cooler and doesnt make me cry inside. User:HeroofAwesome
The weird Indian-ish music he dances to scared me the first time around, and struggling to find the source of the noise, I was beginning to believe it was all in my head. Creepy stuff. Tott, he's just generic and part of the most non-creative way of learning a song ever. Subtletly is nice... *insert Fergie joke here* --AuronKaizer! 16:33, September 3, 2009 (UTC)
Kamaro is a dead guy. I like dead guys.Green hat (talk) 20:46, September 3, 2009 (UTC)Mr.Green hat
the guy seems to worship the moon. and it isnt anyold normal moon its the moon from majoras mask and we all know what kind of moon that is. OniDark Link 20:58, September 3, 2009 (UTC)
Tott was just annoying, and Kamaro's an undead dancer. Need I say more? Sir Real
Tott's a noob! Kamaro is cooler and it's undead... also, the Kamaro's Mask is fun CaioNV
Kamaro is awesome creepy. Tott is just creepy..
teaching the twins the dance was awsome and u couldnt have done it wwithout komaros help plus the way he talks is awsome
Kamaro doesn't make annoying noises when he indicates his dance moves. Also Kamaro gives you, though indirectly, three things, while Tott only gives you one. Kamaro: Kamaro mask, part of Bombers notebook and a piece of heart. Tott: Song of Passing.
Kamaro looks alot cooler. Tott is just plain wierd. And I like to annoy my mom with the music from Kamaro's mask. ;)
Kamaro is creepy in a good way. Tott is creepy in a gay Elvis-impersonator type way, not to mention he has a stupid name. Kamaro is cool, Tott...eh, not so much
Kamaro is way better. He doesn't break dance like an anti-quail. Kamaro is a bôss.
Kamaro is a better dancer. :P
Votes for Tott
I loved his awesome dance in Wind Waker and the best part was, I stumbled upon the Song of Passing entirely by accident! :D Portal-Kombat
YEAH! *moves arm left* YEAH *moves arm right, spins around* POW! *touches ground, nods head*. I laughed so hard at Tott's incredibly funny dance. Midna Rocks
Tott only gets this vote because he doesn't give you a creepy mask plus i like the song of Passing--Green Courage 14:28, September 2, 2009 (UTC)
Tott is a better-looking and cooler character than Kamaro. In addition, I'm getting tired of ghosts by now. Tott gets my vote. Signed, the Recondite Sage
Tott is just so dementedly hilarious. -- Squiggles, Linkadinka, and Babyfloat
Gotta love how the WW artwork depicts half the characters in flamboyant positions. But seriously, this guy wasn't as annoying as Kamaro.
with tott we finally know wat happened to elvis
Invaluable during Figurine making, the best part of Wind Waker
I changed the color for Tott from simple red to something a little better. —Baltro [ talk · edits ] 17:23, September 1, 2009 (UTC)
what are we gonna do for the hundreth fight? gotta be something special for sure!-- C2 / CC 01:48, September 2, 2009 (UTC)
In all likelihood, all that'll happen is that everybody will oppose perfectly good fights just because they think that the big 100th fight should be "bigger and more epic" or whatever. Somebody will probably post Link vs. Zelda vs. Ganondorf just because it's epic or whatever, even though it's the most unoriginal fight ever made. I bet that, in the end, we'll just have a normal Temple of Courage fight for the 100th one. It's what happened for the 50th. XykebYvolixZraliv 03:08, September 2, 2009 (UTC)
i was thinking along the same lines. but i was hoping someone had a rly good idea haha-- C2 / CC 13:40, September 2, 2009 (UTC)
Well it seems most of the people that voted for Kamaro agrees that Tott looks like an Elvis impersonator and that Kamaro should cover up more.The Midna 22:04 1 September 2009(talk)
I think they are both freaky but it's suprising that people are voting for a half naked ghost enough that it's not even close--Green Courage 14:37, September 2, 2009 (UTC)
No, Michael Jackson isn't one of the choices for this one. (Wow, surprised to see someone actually making an effort for interesting colour schemes (read: non-default generic colours) recently. Big ups.) --AuronKaizer! 16:33, September 3, 2009 (UTC)
That would be me that changed the color from just red to something marginally better. Glad somebody noticed. —Baltro [ talk · edits ] 16:38, September 3, 2009 (UTC)
Oh, YOU did it. Not so big ups then. I was expecting Kurt Russell or something. Big ups only go to the rich and jobless. You'll have to settle for small ups. Now that I think about it...what are ups? And how big do they tend to get? Do they taste like Kudos? What do Kudos taste like? Blah. --AuronKaizer! 16:59, September 3, 2009 (UTC)
To anonymous voter #5, please don't be homophobic.--MaloMart (talk) 00:34, September 5, 2009 (UTC)
Malo Mart, I think that he/she is not being homophobic, just saying it's stupid.-- C2 /CC 00:36, September 5, 2009 (UTC)
Still, it's rude. I was just giving a reminder that we don't tolerate rudeness here.--MaloMart (talk) 04:35, September 5, 2009 (UTC)
Trying to make IPs less rude never works, I know from experience. They don't generally come back here after voting. XykebYvolixZraliv 05:01, September 5, 2009 (UTC)
Baltro, big ups, sincerely. Actually, it doesn't really mean so much from me, my net connection is poor, so I only see text and images. So, I fail!--User:Redeadhunter
