  • Out of all of the new details shown off in the latest Breath of the Wild trailer, Zelda's new short hair is easily one of my favorites!!

      Croton the thing link and Zelda are moving with is a water buffalo 016 Hyrule compendium

    You know, i honestly can't wait to see what team hyrule can accomplish. Like seriously if zelda didn't get taken away by evildoers... zelda will never be the same again and maybe, just maybe she could represent who she was originally based on. But this, too, will end in failure. Such is my curse.

          why do i feel like the game could start zelda waking up link and being like: sooo... what do you think, link?

              Probably already been posted or explained here but the game's just following a classic Japanese tradition of cutting hair to symbolize a new beginning. Notable examples
              Riku from KH series
              Garnet from FFIX
              Serena from Pokemon

                I feel like she might become a playable character. That, or she will be a tag along with Link. Kinda like Leon & Ashley graham in Resident evil 4. Short hair is a lot better for adventures. :D

                  Am I the only one who noticed it's the same haircut she had in that Sable Serviette hentai... You know... The one with Urbosa? ^_^'

                    It's so cool! I grew up with the Legend of Zelda, and long hair that was about mid-back length. Around four years ago, I cut my hair all the way up to mid-neck length, and it's stayed that short. Now that she's gotten a haircut as well, Zelda has hair that looks more or less exactly like mine! (Just a neat little coincidence that makes me very happy ^^)

                      Maybe she was just tired of split ends and tangles.

                        She probably cut it due to having so many split ends for 100 years

                            or maybe it's just a pain in the ass to animate hair, so they shortened it for an easier workload. Then people can just add a more in depth meaning for no reason so the designers don't seem as lazy

                              She Cuts her Hair Cuz In the Modern Asian Culture that is now, cutting long hair into a short cut means to forget the past, leaving the old and starting anew. or symbolizes being banished or rejected from their home.

                              It's the Same reason Why Hinata from Naruto Cuts her hair Short at Her Young Age

                                  (But in my canon she have a threesome with Link and Mipha)

                                              Absolutely nothing to do with zeldas hair but I hope they add a mechanic that allows you to still wear your hood but have it pulled down as seen in the trailer

                                              Skyward Sword was my favorite Zelda. She was the only Zelda you felt like you legit WANTED to save because of the established relationship between her and Link

                                                She is probably my second favorite Zelda for those reasons!! Her, and BotWs Zelda are the only ones that got proper character development - and that's why I like them the best!!

                                              Zelda needing to pray to unlock the power never made sense to me.. isnt she literally the mortal incarnation of the Goddess? Who is she praying to? Herself..?

                                                The kings hubris made her think that she could unlock it that way... stubborn old man... he did what he felt best i suppose but yeah the king is to blame for that

                                              I love her new hairstyle. Her character is already unique compared to the other Zeldas before her and the short haircut reflects that perfect imO

                                                Great Theory!  Something that I noticed was the fact that, with Zelda's haircut, she seems to look more mature to me, so I wonder (like you said) if its her showing that she is having a more hands on role...Anyway, Ive grown to like the haircut more than I did when I first saw it.  Again...well made video!

                                                                  Or she could be a Companion like Atreus from GOW. Shoots arrows on command and helps you on a fight. Thats cool aswell. And makes sense. But being playable is even cooler.

                                                                  yet another comment, damn im talkative xD

                                                                  she could have cut her hair in means of symbolism even if some other event didnt happen, she just got back from a 100-year sealing of ganon so she just got around to doing it.

                                                                  obviously something happened to warrant them going down there, but i doubt its another calamity.

                                                                  but hey thats just me

                                                                    About the time between Botw 1 and 2, i have a somewhat controversial opinion: It takes place months or even up to a year before the two notice Ganon's presence and venture to find it.

                                                                    Why I think this:

                                                                    1) The scene during Hyrule Castle raising above the ground clearly shows a somewhat restored Hyrule, obviously not completely finished (my main issue with the time travel theory). However we do see the shrines/towers/divine beasts are presumably back underground & hyrule castle has been restored. the place couldnt have done that much if it was literally right after botw.

                                                                    2) The trailer shows Zelda & Link very comfortable with each other, (ZeLink confirmed? it already has but whatever lmao) walking together as opposed to the feet apart they did in the memories, showing that they've become accustomed to each other and their daily lives together.

                                                                    At least that's what I've picked up, ive been dying to share this and since its 2 in the morning why not type up an unnecessarily long novel in the comment section of a youtube video.

                                                                    if anyone sees this feel free to tell me your own thoughts, im curious yeehaw
