Link doesnt live in the faron province. he lives in the ordona province Twilightinthedark

Wouldn't you say that Din is associated with the Gerudo? Her form in as a Oracle resembles a Gerudo woman. Gerudo=Ganondorf=Triforce of Power=Din. Should we add that to the page...? ZeldaGirl96 23:07, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

Din

"It is Din who created the realm itself..."

Does this information have a source? I don't remember anything like that ever being said, and it also conflicts with another part of the page which says that all three goddesses each created a different facet of the realm. However, since I don't own every game, I don't want to remove it without being sure. Jimbo Jambo

Well, that does seem to contradict itself, doesn't it. I'm not an expert but, I think it would be okay. Because using logic, Din didn't create the realm herself she had the help of the two other goddesses....so.User:Mandi/sig
Removed. That page needs a lot more sources though. Jimbo Jambo 20:15, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

Evil?

I don't think she is evil...just trying to make balance. Ya think about that--Griffen78 14:44, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

I'd like to propose that Din represents Chaos rather than Evil. Ganon, who she chose as her agent of Chaos, chose to express it in destructive, rather than creative, ways. It would follow that Nayru, Goddess of Wisdom, who brought Law to the land, represents Order and Farore, who created Life, represents Balance.

I think that chaos is a poor example as well. She would not have been the first to start building Hyrule from the "chaos" if she did not represent it. She also probably spends most of her time snoozing in the heavens while her power is manifested into the triforce of power (and the triforce has no sense of good vs evil). Simply, Din had nothing to do with such.
Also, Din is said to represent powerful races such as the Gorons, who are largely peaceful. I personally think that this theory can (and perhaps will) be bashed to dust.--Stalkid 15:37, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

Responsibilities as creator/attributes

When describing the attributes of the Goddesses, please use canonical sources and refrain from attributing logical speculation to be fact:

"When all was chaos, the goddesses descended and gave order and life to the world. They granted power equally to all who dwelt in the light, and then returned to the heavens." --Lanayru, Twilight Princess "Din...With her strong flaming arms, she cultivated the land and created the red earth." --Great Deku Tree, Ocarina of Time "The God of Power dyed the mountains red with fire and created land." --n/a, A Link to the Past Game Manual

Nowhere is it mentioned that Din is associating with rythm, dancing or the seasons or in any way governs the seasons. Any connection between the Goddess Din and the Essence of Nature via the Oracle of Seasons remains pure fan speculation and should be treated as such, not needlessly retconned into what has stated.

Gathered from the above quotes, Din is responsible for the following: Power (granted equally to all who dwelt in the light), Cultivating Land, Red Earth (Soil), Fire. Linque1 14:59, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Din and The Goddess of the Sand

Every Goddess is associated with a race. Since Din seems to be assiocated with the Goron and/or the Gerudo, does anybody think there could be a relation between the Goddess of Sand and Din? Jeangabin 13:58, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

I like that Idea, but what races are the other goddesses associated with? I would guess that Nayru is associated with the Zora, Sheikah and Hylia, and that Farore is associated with the Deku and Kokiri (who are, according to Oot, a creation of the Deku). Is that correct?--Stalkid 10:42, 18 July 2010 (UTC)

Page Theory

The thory on this page is a little odd, and after asking around, I've discovered that most people have never heard of it. Now, our rules state that theories on pages must be well-known in the community. I'm not sure about this one, though, so I'd like to ask you guys if you think it should stay or go. Leave your opinions, please.User:Justin/sig 20:25, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

I'm a non-believer of it, so my opinion would be a biased one; but I think the article can do without.--Stalkid 14:48, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
I've only heard of it in fanfiction. I've never heard of anyone who actually thinks it's true. You'd think that would cause some sibling contention between the sisters. =P Embyr 75  --Talk-- 15:58, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
It should be rewritten, but I've find it interesting. I've always wonder why she always grant Ganon her Triforce. Perhaps the Golden Goddesses are not Good nor Evil, but more like the ancient greek deities. Jeangabin 11:10, 18 July 2010 (UTC)
I've noticed this belief a lot, that Din "granted" her Triforce to Ganondorf. The in-game legends of Ocarina of Time explain: "But, if that one's heart is not in balance, the Triforce will separate into three parts: Power, Wisdom and Courage. Only one part will remain for the one who touched the Triforce...the part representing the force that one most believes in." No where does it say that the Goddesses play any active part in who gets the Triforce or how it splits. If a very evil man coveted Wisdom more than Power (unlikely, admittedly), he would get the Triforce of Wisdom instead. Princess Zelda explains, "The three goddesses hid the Triforce containing the power of the gods somewhere in Hyrule." It says containing the power of the Gods, not that the Gods are participants in granting the wish. Embyr 75  --Talk-- 14:23, 18 July 2010 (UTC)
Can we please remove the theory? Considering that Din is prayed to to restore the Master Sword against Ganondorf in TWW, as well as in Skyward Sword, it seems to fly in the face of explicit, canon material to claim there is any indication of her being evil.KrytenKoro 17:02, 12 December 2011 (EST)
