What the hell, Lozzie? Why did you erase my contribution? -hisak

If you're going to request an answer from someone, it might be best not to use coarse language, that is, if you wish a response. --Jase 18:02, 14 November 2006 (CST)


This is just an idea, but perhaps we should split up the Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess dungeons into separate entries. --Yumil

Do we have a "It has been suggested that this article be split into..." template? If not, I'll add one. --Jase 23:06, 14 November 2006 (CST)

The Reason

The reason I deleted it was because I moved it over to Faron Woods. Is it known that the temple is actually named Forest Temple?

There were videos/images labeling the temple as the "Forest Temple". However, I believe they were from the E3 2005 demos. It is possible that the temple was renamed. Perhaps the best thing to do in this case would be to wait for someone to actually purchase and play the game. --Yumil 12:33, 15 November 2006 (CST)

It was named "Forest Temple" on a video taken from the actual game. I think it would have been better for Nintendo to have named it "Faron Temple" or something else.

Forest Temple: Great Deku Tree

I have OoT and TP and I think that the two temples may be the same, with Link running around in the Forest Temple which could well be the roots of the Great Deku Tree and another big tree. I'm surprised their isn't a Kokiri cameo or something. THAT WOULD ROCK

Uhh...I don't think the Forest Temples of OoT and TP are the same, myself. For one thing, in OoT the Forest Temple appeared to be a massive stone ruin of some sort, while in TP the Forest Temple appears to built into a massive tree. While this tree could be the remains of the Great Deku Tree of OoT, that only almost guarantees that the two temples are not the same, as the Forest Temple in OoT is nowhere near the Great Deku Tree at all.

Theories in Trivia

"Some people believe that the Kokiri once lived here long ago."

"Others believe that this is the Forbidden Woods in The Wind Waker, though none of this is proven."

Both of these ideas seem to feed off each other, since we know the Koroks once lived in the Forbidden Woods, and if the Forbidden Woods are the Forest Temple, then that means the Koroks/Kokiri once lived in the temple. As far as I know, however, neither has any actual supporting evidence. In OoT, the Kokiri live in the aptly named Kokiri Forest, right next to the Great Deku Tree - their creator - and I can't really imagine why they might ever have lived elsewhere, in a temple no less. As for the Forbidden Woods, seeing as how all the information we're really given about it is that the Koroks used to inhabit it, it seems to be pretty strongly implied that it was one Kokiri Forest, which is backed by the tree-houses present in the dungeon. Also, as someone above pointed out, the Forest Temple is made of stone, not trees. Any objections to removing these theories, or is there a real argument behind them?

Tracking down a citation

In trying to source "The Forest Temple is known as the "topsy-turviest" level in Zelda history", I discovered that the November 2006 issue of Nintendo Power contained the article The Stuff of Legends (Zelda) Part 2. This article listed the Forest Temple and Stone Tower Temple as two of Zelda's top five dungeons. I don't own the magazine and can't find any more details about the article, but it seems possible that this article may be the source of the topsy-turvy reputation. Maybe someone out there has a copy and can check it out. -Bodo, Sage of Obsession 03:30, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

Forest Temple in Spirit Tracks

I have started a section for the Forest Temple in Spirit Tracks. It should have all of the currently known information. Please improve it as you see fit and add any new information as it becomes available. --Bigrageous 00:38, 24 November 2009 (UTC)

You know, about the so called forest temple in spirit tracks, is it really called forest temple? I have the european version of the game an there it is called wooded temple. Is it translated different in the american version? If it is, which would mean that both names are right, wouldn't it be appropriate if we could make a redirect for the name wooded temple to this page? -- Olle93 20:45, 16 December 2009 (UTC)
There are indeed region differences in the dungeons' names. The EU names can be redirected, I guess--K2L 16:07, 24 February 2010 (UTC)


[1] [2] note the dates. I'm not one that likes to stir up trouble but this is pure plagiarism. It's actually word for word. I understand a minor editor added in the info and I would be satisfied if it is removed with an apology Don Lark Kiin 22:41, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

Those sections were removed from the article awhile ago, so please, explain the problem with this current page. User:Steven/sig 23:12, 19 July 2010 (UTC)
Alright, so it seems some of it had been moved to another part of the article, which Embyr has so kindly removed. Thank you for pointing this out.User:Steven/sig 23:16, 19 July 2010 (UTC)
No problem. Just trying to prevent another situation.CC talk 23:18, 19 July 2010 (UTC)
I don't mean to look like a prick, but don't do this on here again. Take your complaints of content theft to our staff on an off-site location, like one of the established instant messenger groups. It's against our policy to have it on here (See Appropriate/Inappropriate Behavior). User:Matt/sig 23:28, July 19, 2010 (UTC)
The complaint was valid, but the way in which it was raised was not. So Matt's absolutely right to refer back to that section of our policy. This process has been agreed by the staff from both wikis as the correct method to deal with these issues (on the rare occasions when they arise) with the minumum fuss and disruption possible. Nobody should be bypassing this established channel of inter-staff communication to raise such issues. I would hope that this policy is also publicly documented at ZP.
