Short

How come Saria's article is shorter than Fado's article? Eponasowner 16:48, 22 November 2007 (EST)

Because people think articles will become longer if they ask why they are short, rather than just go ahead and make some changes. IfIHaveTo 12:41, 22 November 2007 (EST)

Musical names

Have you ever noticed that almost all Kokiri names are music-oriented? here are some examples: fado= fa-do, Mido= mi-do--Claire 14:59, 1 January 2008 (EST)

Yeah, I heard that theory and really, it's cowcrap to the bone. Only three Kokiri names are known. Of those, only two could have that connection. Of the remaining two, one (Mido) was the name of a town in TAOL, which kinda breaks the music-connection (I mean, it does not have the intention of music in its origins). The remaining name (Fado) can go two ways: either as a backup for Mido to have a music-connection or as indication that Fado and Mido are siblings. I'd say it's a very, very shaky theory. Especially since none of the Korok names are music based.IfIHaveTo 15:26, 1 January 2008 (EST)

Its not really a theory at all...I'm not saying that Shigeru Miyamoto intentionally made it so that their names have a slight relation to musical notes...I'm just pointing out somewhat of a pun that I noticed.--Stalkid 19:49, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

Story retelling

I'm seeing way too much of this, and it's really starting to bother me. A good portion of this page is retelling the story of OoT, which is completely unnecessary. The page should be about Saria and the role she plays in the game, not with whom Link must speak to find out where she is and not how Link navigates through the Lost Woods to the meadow. Those are just a couple things I removed. Another thing: if you come across articles written in past tense, change them. For consistency's sake, there shouldn't be some articles in past tense and some in present and some in future. They should all be in the same tense, using present and the occasional future (mostly for Ocarina of Time, in articles about things and people found both as a child and an adult).User:Justin/sig 01:58, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

resemblance

I've noticed that Saria slightly resembles the pokemon Gardevoir. does anyone else notice this? --Krystal 16:22, 27 July 2013 (UTC)

As I've said in my edit summary, I believe it to be too obscure to be noteworthy. First of all, their only resemblance is the green hair, which further only comes from the bob hair style (that being the curling on the sides). This is certainly not noteworthy, as the Ralts line all bear varying hairstyles (Ralts having a bowl-cut, Kirlia's hair cuts to the shoulders on its side with the red horns resembling hair pins, on top of that, the original three were meant to be based on dancers) thus it can be inferred that Game Freak was observing and basing the hair on the styles, and not on anyone in particular.
Then there's the larger issue of whether Saria's hair actually resembles Gardevoir's: the issue is the bangs. Gardevoir's comes directly down its face in the middle, whereas Saria's bangs split on the right side of her head. However you look at it, I just don't think it's intentional, so it's not really worth noting.
To me, it would be the same as mentioning that Ghirahim and Honedge are similar because they both take the form of swords, or that Fi and Suicune are similar because they're both diamond-themed and blue. - TonyT S C 17:44, 27 July 2013 (UTC)
I'm sorry, but I simply do not see the resemblance. It's stretching quite a bit to make the connection, and such a thing does not have a place in any of our articles in my book. If it was completely and totally obvious, then I'd be down with the idea, but as is, it's just a passing similarity. Such things are not worth mentioning, although I do appreciate the theorists and their point of view on the issue.User:Justin/sig 12:29, 28 July 2013 (UTC)
I did a little search and it seems there's actually several fans that do make the connection. Take this fan art for example. Personally, I wouldn't have seen any resemblance unless someone pointed it out, but the fact that a fair number of fans do see a resemblance might make it noteworthy. — Hylian King [*] 14:37, 28 July 2013 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure stuff like that is through attempts to replace all the Zelda characters with the closest Pokemon (like is done with Pokemon and the Avengers), rather than seeing them as similar independent from a desire to mashup the franchises.KrytenKoro 20:09, 28 July 2013 (UTC)
That was merely an example. What I'm saying is it seems a fair number of fans are making the connection, so it might be relevant for that reason. It's a similar situation to the Monster's Inc. trivia on the Tentalus page. — Hylian King [*] 20:35, 28 July 2013 (UTC)
For the record, I don't support mentioning "connections" between franchises unless they actually are canon/confirmed to be an homage or reference, especially if the media in question is not from Nintendo. - TonyT S C 05:56, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

I have also noticed that Saria looks uncannily like Queen Merelda, but I was given practically no say over whether it was mention worthy or not.--Krystal (talk) 04:27, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

We understand you think they look similar, but there is literally no similarities besides they wear green and the hair is of a somewhat similar style. No thinks they look similar, Saria is most certainly not an inspiration, and it is against our quality standards to post baseless comparisons. You need to stop being so rude to people and re-adding illegitimate trivia. Arguing and insulting admins is a definite no. It is only by the grace of the staff that you haven't been banned yet; if I was admin I honestly would have banned you after your last edit on the Saria page. Champion of Nayru (talk) 04:57, 27 November 2013 (UTC)Champion of Nayru
Let's please keep to the topic at hand: whether or not Saria's resemblance to Merelda is noteworthy.
To be fair, I can see why someone would make the connection. It's listed as trivia on Super Mario Wiki, so Krystal certainly isn't the only one.
That said, I think it's only a passing resemblance. Merelda's hair is turquoise and her bangs are totally parted to one side. Saria's hair is forest green and only slightly parted (even less so in artwork and OoT3D). Their clothes are both green, but Merelda wears a formal dress whereas Saria wears a tunic and shorts (or maybe it's some kinda onesie?). They both have blue eyes, but that's about it. Otherwise they have nothing in common, not in their roles nor their physical appearance. — Hylian King [*] 05:21, 27 November 2013 (UTC)


Someone else apparently does agree, because they made this: https://fbcdn-sphotos-c-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/1401609_200033680183107_1006929150_o.jpg --Krystal (talk) 21:41, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

They sorta look like each other. That is not a connection. Their hair color, ears, clothing, name, personality, role and game series are all different. The only similarities are that their hair is a similar color, and they wear similar colored clothing. The same can be said of many characters. Why is this notable? It's like saying Obama is similar to Brock from Pokemon because they are dark skinned. Champion of Nayru (talk) 22:29, 27 November 2013 (UTC)Champion of Nayru

This doesnt really contribute to the wiki, but that was very uncalled for.--Krystal (talk) 00:00, 28 November 2013 (UTC)

Saria in Hyrule Warriors

Why has Saria not been included in Hyrule Warriors (yet). She's one of the more well known characters in Ocarina of Time and is also a sage like Darunia and Ruto. Also it's not as if the fact that she has no weapon has stopped any other character so far. —Preceding unsigned comment added by ZiggyAngelo8 13:44, June 7, 2015‎

Saria = Aria

So I just randomly realized this - is it possible that Saria's name comes from "aria", as in:

aria: noun
1. an air or melody.
2. an elaborate melody sung solo with accompaniment, as in an opera or oratorio.

This would make her name musically-oriented, like Mido and Fado seem to be. I've always pronounced her name "suh-RI-uh", but since it has no official pronunciation, "SARR-e-ah" could be it. Peanutjon (talk) 22:05, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

It could potentially incorporate that. I think it's fine to add details like that to an Etymology section. The idea is valid and works considering that Saria is closely linked to music. - Midoro (T C) 23:18, 19 April 2016 (UTC)
