Talk:Four Sword Sanctuary

From Zelda Wiki, the Zelda encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

I know this exists in both Four Swords Adventures and The Minish Cap, but does it show up in the original Four Swords? --Douken 21:17, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

I've not played Four Swords myself, but I've looked up location lists several times, and I've never seen anything related to a Four Sword Sanctuary on there. Again, I haven't played it, though, so take it with a grain of salt (wtf does that even mean seriously). User:Ando/sig 19:11, 15 September 2008 (UTC)
Depends upon your definition of "showing up". It's not a playable area in the game, but it appears in the opening cinematic to explain the plot.--Feanor 19:08, 9 May 2012 (EDT)

Merge with Elemental Sanctuary

From Hyrule Historia page 119, the beginning of the FSA summary: "Using the Four Sword, Vaati was sealed into the Elemental Sanctuary, a place visible only to children, by Link and the remaining Princess Zelda. Following his imprisonment, the sanctuary was watched over by the young Princess Zelda and the maidens." From page 120: "Link, who was left behind, drew the Four Sword that rest deep within the Elemental Sanctuary" They are the same location.

Hm. You have a point. The elemental sanctuary is where Vaati is sealed at the end of TMC... so it would make sense that the Four Sword Sanctuary is the same thing, considering that Link draws the Four Sword from there and frees Vaati. I support a merge for that reason.User:Justin/sig 19:00, 9 May 2013 (UTC)
I'm for the merge too. Jeangabin (talk) 06:06, 10 April 2016 (UTC)
I'm against merging the two pages. In Hyrule Historia, the translators assumed that the two sanctuaries are the same. I think they should have used the term Four Sword Sanctuary which is used in the games. In TMC the Elemental Sanctuary is located between Hyrule and the Minish World, whereas the Four Sword Sanctuary is in Hyrule. Also, according to the FS manual the people built a shrine to protect the sword. The Elemental Sanctuary existed before the events of the Four Swords backstory though. There is a topic here as well that I had opened. Zeldafan1982 (talk) 01:51, 12 April 2016 (UTC)
