 Insert train-related joke here.
It's that time again: time for you to summon up the answers to five obscure Zelda trivia questions for a chance to win a copy of Spirit Tracks and some other neat schwag courtesy of the folks at Nintendo
 
Just like last week, be the first to post all five correct answers in these here comments to win this week's package. Also, contest still open only to residents of the United States. Sorry, international folks! 
 
Here's them questions.
  
  1. Who has appeared in more Zelda games, Ganondorf or Tingle
  2. What is the only Zelda game to feature both friendly and unfriendly Zoras?
  3. Who sits beneath the tree in Kakariko Village in Ocarina of Time?
  4. What enemy does Link defeat in Stone Tower to get the Big Key?
  5. What is the full name of the King of Hyrule in The Wind Waker?   

Don't forget, there will still be two more chances to get in on this excitement, one next Monday and the other the Monday after that. Meanwhile, for an extended look at Spirit Tracks, take a look at this new trailer, and give my latest hands-on a look-see while you're at it.

Not that I am going to play this game but its insane how fast some of these speed contests go by. I wonder if someone is sitting there refreshing the page constantly or if they just happen to stumble upon it when they want to check out Giant Bomb.

@ProjektGill: I was refreshing this page every couple of minutes about a half an hour before, but increased my frequency of refreshing as 1 PST approached. However, I'll admit that I'm a little obsessed when it comes to the Zelda series. Now, to wait and see if anyone has gotten all 5 questions correct.
 
Also, I'm curious about #2. Was Brad thinking about the lone Zora in ALttP that sells you flippers, or the distinction between River Zoras and Sea Zoras in OoA.

My intuition tells me that all of the answers are "C".

Posted by RHCPfan24

Too late for me I am sure. Oh well.

Posted by TeamQuiggan

A Link to the Past only had Evil Zoras, it's not the right answer, the king of the Zoras had to be bested in battle before he gave up the goods.

Posted by Majinken

 Ahh well, little late but this should be fun.

1. Ganondorf (in Gerudo form) appears in Ocarina of Time, Wind Waker, and Twilight Princess. Tingle appeared in Majora's Mask, Wind Waker, and at least 2 Tingle games that I know of. You could argue the DS games don't count, but Tingle wins.
2. Link to the Past has a Zora that sells you Flippers and opens the water warp points.
3. The carpenter's son. Can't remember if he had a name?
4. Gomess, the bat dude. Totally had to look his name up.
5. Daphnes Nohansen Hyrule. (Thought it was Johanses or some shit. xD)

I don't understand why anyone is posting the same answers someone before them posted.

I'm pretty sure only Ocracle of Ages had the evil Zoras, as Oracle of Seasons didn't have the underwater bits. Man, I played those a while ago...

...No, you paid the giant friendly Zora 500 rupees and he gave you the flippers. You didn't have to fight or anything just hand him the cash.

Because Ganondorf and ALttP aren't right. TIngle was in MM, OoS, TWW,  FSA, and TMC while GanonDORF was only in OoT, TWW and TP. 
The Zora king was good, but he was still a River Zora. The River and Sea Zoras weren't in a game together till OoA. 
 
And I have yet to see hard questions from the trivia :P

It would seem I haven't played as much Zelda/retained the knowledge I thought I had... hmm...

The problem lie in the question, not the answers.  The question does not differentiate between River and Sea, but Friendly and Unfriendly.
 
The proper answers can be as follow:
Tingle
ALttP OR Oracle of Ages (it depends on the meaning of the question)
The Carpenter (Mutoh) OR the Carpenter's Son (of course the Carpenter doesn't sit, but again, vague question [though not as vague as the first question with the correct answer much more likely to be Grog]) 
Gomess
Daphnes Nohansen Hyrule
 
I believe the true meaning of the questions should be more adequately described.
 
PS: I also believe that due to the very nature of time in a contest like this, it would make more sense to enter the people who answer correctly into a lot and draw the winner.
 
PPS: The answers I would have given based on the questions are as follow:
Tingle
ALttP
Grog (Mutoh's Son)
Gomess
Daphnes Nohansen Hyrule

@ProjektGill: Interestingly enough, I won last week, when there was no time where you knew it was coming or that there would be a contest at all. I just sat down at my computer randomly to check giantbomb, i clicked on the story that said zelda first cause its my favorite franchise, and it was a contest, and crazily enough, not a single person had yet responded. This week may be different because Brad said to check back at 4 on mondays for the next questions.

Man, so many people who can't read...

Posted by TriforceoftheGods

@ Kyle: Because posting the right answers when the previous answers had a few wrong is the same as posting the same answers again  /sarcasm 
But when applying that to the ones who did repeat answers, I agree.

Posted by SaturdayNightSpecials

This would have been a fairer contest if everyone had to PM their answers within the day and you picked randomly from those who got them all correct.
