@wrighteous86: There's not that many, though a lot is open to interpretation I suppose.
Koholint wasn't an alternate world, but a weird fake island in the normal world's sea. The "World of the Ocean King", similarly, seems to be billed as just an unknown part of the sea.
The Dark World and the Sacred Realm are the same place, or at least they used to be -- the implication once being that Ganon's influence is what turned the Sacred Realm into the Dark World. ALBW seems to throw a wrench in this, as Lorule looks very much like the Dark World, making the Sacred Realm its own thing after all? Maybe? Either way, Lorule = Dark World, or Sacred Realm = Dark World.
Termina was arguably a tripped-up dream, though once again ALBW leaves room for it to be, in fact, a part of Lorule, since they both play with weird parallel crap.
The Twilight Realm is probably its own thing.
- Dark World/Sacred Realm
- Lorule/Dark World
- Twilight Realm
- (if termina is its own thing)
Excellent points. I'd say he has got you there Wrighteous.
I know I focused on the story with my point, but I more meant the concept, as the other guy said. It's always a "2 sides of the same coin thing".
And the split timeline makes the lore argument even more complex and "implied". Who's to say Termina in one timeline isn't Lorule in another, etc.
