So I watched Disney's Sleeping Beauty this morning, and noticed a lot of parallels between it and Zelda. Some of the more interesting ones:
There's a lot of green fire seen around the enemies in both. Maleficent's henchmen look almost identical to early Moblins. During the final scenes of the movie the Prince has a sheld with the same design as NES Link's. Also during a lot of those scenes, the fairies are drawn as little glowing orbs, just like OoT fairies. And... y'know... sleeping Zelda.
Interesting coincidence, or influence on Zelda's art? YOU DECIDE.

Now that's an interesting thing to point out, even though it doesn't actually negate Fry's point. Though Link's not being Kokiri does complicate matters on Peter Pan, since Peter Pan could be called a Lost Boy just as much as any of the rest of 'em, albeit only when you try to define a Lost Boy, as there's no way to make an exception for Peter Pan when you define it, since he fits literally any description of a Lost Boy you could throw at him.
Of course there are parallels with Peter Pan, but it doesn't mean the Legend of Hyrule has to follow it word for word. Link is protected by the Kokiri Woods and the Deku Tree, remaining young so long as the Deku Tree remains alive... so in that regards he remains young, like Peter Pan, until he leaves his "Neverland".
The only difference with the other Kokiri is that they cant leave, unlike the Lost Boys. That's not a problem... it's just an alteration to the story to fit the Legend of Hyrule.
And then there are the parallels between Majora's Mask and Alice in Wonderland. I wonder if Tingle is supposed to be the Mad Hatter! ;D
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
