Top 5 Things That Make no Sense in the Zelda Series
The Legend of Zelda Series is filled with oddities that just continue to puzzle its fans. Everything from the plot to your basic characters seems to be open to fan speculation at times.

The two stories are after all intertwined with the events of both games working for the revival of Ganon. So what did Link do with all of his fancy gadgets from the time he beat General Onox to the point where Veran starts wrecking with the flow of time?
