Where's the Proof?
Most powerful and wisest being in all of Hyrule? Says who? Rauru never fights or shows any kind of strength, and he doesn't seem very wise to me.
Link or Ganondorf would be the ones who would get the title of most powerful in Hyrule. Wisest would probably be Kaepora Gaebora.
I think this should be changed, or at least be backuped my something proving the statements...
Link or Ganondorf would be the ones who would get the title of most powerful in Hyrule. Wisest would probably be Kaepora Gaebora. Rauru IS Kaepora Gaebora. In video games, rumors like this tend to be true.
He is right. Keapora is Rauru in the physical realm. And he is powerful, he just uses his power wisely, preferring not to fight when unnecessary.
Just speculation and nothing more.IfIHaveTo 02:31, 29 December 2007 (EST)
About the not knowing Link can travel through time... It could be used in a sarcastic manner, to hide his true identity. User:Master Lucario
Okay, I see Ganondorf as most powerful because of the triforce and link because he beat Ganon <insert number of games here> times. But wouldn't wisest be Zelda? Sk8torchic
Rauru (Sage) and Rauru (Town)
In-game quotes of The Adventure of Link show that the town of Rauru is only known as Rauru: not Rauru Town (which is what we have now), or Town of Rauru...it's simply Rauru. Thus, I'm proposing that the Rauru page be a disambiguation page, and Rauru the Sage's page be renamed (or moved) to Rauru (Sage), and Rauru the town to Rauru (Town). That way we'll have the correct name for the town in The Adventure of Link, since from what I've seen thus far, a lot of the towns' names in TAoL have been mislabeled in this Wiki.

King Rauru Hyrule?
I think he could possibly have been the King of Hyrule, Zelda's Father. The king was unseen for no apparent reason beforehand (Ganondorf kneeling before him) and Rauru wasn't a known citizen either. Rauru has all the features, the kingly robes, the baldness from wearing a crown for too long, the awesome facial hair... I'd say since Zelda had forewarned about Ganondorf, that when everything went down he entered the sacred realm and found Link trapped in stasis. The royal connection with the Triforce would have allowed him to bypass the need to be "Awakened," and he simply knew that he was one... he of course discarded his crown after losing everything to Ganondorf's army.
This is speculation only, because it seems to work but there is absolutely no proof. Any thoughts?Kryptnyt 16:09, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
- This is less like 'speculation only' and more like 'Wild speculation'. Though it is a a clever theory, it has no place in the article. You can place it in your user page. User:Axiomist/sig 17:23, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
- I also think that (given the character in SS). Maybe they have the same ancestors (Gaepora), or they're brothers. I heard that, in middle age, when a family had three sons: one had to be the successor, one had to be a soldier, and the last had to be a priset. Both are related to the sages, and in ALBW, the priest's daughter seems to be Zelda's counterpart among the sages. Jeangabin (talk) 18:43, 8 April 2016 (UTC)
So, in the Child Timeline, the five other Sages did not become the Sages. However, there's no reason to believe that Rauru was replaced, and he's certainly not new...so is it fair to assume that he is the Sage of Light in TP?KrytenKoro 01:59, 6 January 2012 (EST)
Smith or Architect?
One of the Zeldas mentioned that the Master Sword was created by Ancient Sages (I think it was TP Zelda, but I'm not sure.) But SS Zelda says Hylia made the Goddess Sword, which Link later upgrades to the Master Sword. This means A: one or both Zeldas were incorrect, or B: Ancient Sages helped Hylia create it. Most people think Rauru is one of the Ancient Sages, but didn't he build the new Temple of Time during the Era of Chaos, AFTER Skyward Sword? He can't exist both before and after the game, can he? Maybe he got reincarnated? Thoughts?
- This is mentioned in the "Discrepancies" section of the Master Sword article; the fact that the sage symbols appear in the Temple of Hylia seems to lead to your point B. So unless he's immortal or incredibly long-lived (which seems unlikely since he doesn't appear in SS), then you might be right. Another possibility is that, despite what Rauru says himself, he isn't one of the actual "ancient sages" and wasn't present at the events preceding SS. It might just be a screw-up on behalf of the developers (it certainly wouldn't be the first time Nintendo has contradicted themselves).

Oh, okay. So he probably built the Temple, but did NOT help create the Master Sword. Thanks. Nare 12:19, 21 October 2012 (UTC)
