Talk:Spectacle Rock

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


For Majora's Mask, I believe what we have labeled now is the counterpart of Lake Hylia, not Spectacle Rock, due to it being a body of water, with 2 or more islands connected by bridges. Do we have and documentation to say that this is spectacle rock? I believe that since it is in Termina, and the Terminian counterparts are usually twisted versions, the Pinnacle Rock is Spectacle's counterpart, based on the similar sounding names, and representation.

Any thoughts? This is just what I had always assumed, so to see the Wiki disagreed surprised me, and I thought I would ask. Nicktheslayer 14:12, 6 November 2012 (UTC)

I think in case the Twin Islands are not the Terminian counterpart to Spectacle Rock, it would most likely be the 2 peaks seen in Goron Village which was always my #1 candidate for Termina's counterpart of Spectacle Rock in Majora's Mask. Wtc4ever (talk) 02:21, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

Twilight Princess

Wait, this appears in Twilight Princess? "Spectacle Rock" doesn't appear anywhere within the game's text, and perhaps we're confusing this with Death Mountain? —Ando (talk) 03:50, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

Spectacle Rock is the large (and only) structure you enter, home to the Goron Mines. It isn't specifically called Spectacle Rock, but neither is the one in Ocarina of Time; it is just something that is plainly obvious to any Zelda continuity fanatic. Twilight Princess' Death Mountain, however, is the fiery, unmissable and rockily doom-ridden molten behemoth visible in the distance. You can even see it from the Faron Province, so it's difficult to confuse the two. Canonicity for the win! Rob 64 18:24, 28 July 2008 (UTC)Rob 64

A rock is a rock is a rock

Maybe I've been living under my own rock for years, but what on Earth is the point of this article? Is this some sort of hardcore Zelda fan inside joke, or what? Someone explain please. Jimbo Jambo 21:23, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

It's not really a joke. It's actually quite important to the timeline/landscape issues. It's something of an "easter egg" for most Zelda fans. Alter  {T C B H } 22:32, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Perhaps you could go a little bit more in-depth than that? Admittedly I haven't played any of the old Super Nintendo or GameBoy games, but for the console games, I fail to see the connection between a tall, thin rock spike in the very center of Death Mountain Crater to the roundish rock face in Twilight Princess where the Gorons live which isn't even completely separate from the surrounding stone walls. And a single plateau among two others in the middle of a lake in Majora's Mask? That doesn't even take place in the same reality as any of the other games. Jimbo Jambo 04:10, 8 February 2009 (UTC)
If you speak french, there is a more complete article there :—Preceding unsigned comment added by Gay164 (talk) 12:25, April 18, 2013

Starting this up, again... Where are the references for this article? Without references backing this up as a fan-accepted wink at Zelda continuity, this article just looks like a mess. The area mentioned in the Majora's Mask section, for example, doesn't have an article of its own at all; it's covered briefly in the Snowhead article, and even called Spectacle Rock in that article despite the fact that it is never called that in the game. Unless we can gather some concrete references for this continuity phenomenon, and for which places are actually meant to represent this (since there doesn't seem to be concrete finality about some of these locations), I say this article needs to be labeled as... something... this isn't quite a theory, but without references this seems like something that's more made up than confirmed in-game.

Dividing the page

While reading the page I noticed that most of the rock's supposedly appearances are just speculations, or "candidates" as they are often called throughout the page. Only a few games actually call it Spectacle Rock, including the obvious reference of Spectacle Island, but the rest are just speculations, and ones without sources, as there's only one reference in the whole page. So wouldn't it be better to divide the page in confirmed appearances and possible apperances? Chuck (talk) 18:51, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

I wouldn't even call them possibles, rather "allusions".KrytenKoro (talk) 19:31, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
I would say yes, Chuck. That would be an important distinction to make. - TonyT S C 20:36, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
Then I'll go ahead and do it, although I'm still not sure which is the best way to call the "other appearances". Chuck (talk) 21:43, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
Should its appearance in A Link Between Worlds be put in with the confirmed appearances section since Nintendo confirmed that A Link Between Worlds takes place in the same world/Hyrule that A Link to the Past was set in (i.e. through its association with that game be a confirmation)? My opinion about this is that it should because the game's association with A Link to the Past along with the location & shape of the mountain imply that Spectacle Rock evolved over the years into an active volcano. Wtc4ever (talk) 02:13, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
As far as I remember, it is never confirmed in-game that it is called Spectacle Rock, so that's why I moved it to the unconfirmed section. Chuck (talk) 03:31, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
I think someone ingame mentions it being Spectacle Rock. --Hero of Termina (talk) 20:36, 22 June 2016 (UTC)
