Sonic the Hedgehog and Legend of Zelda are in the same universe
Debate Rounds (3)
Thanks for posting this debate. It looks like it could be fun, and I can't wait to hear your evidence.
1: In Sonic Lost World, there is a special map where Sonic goes through the Kingdom of Hyrule (wearing Link"7; famous hat) and collects Rupees instead of rings. This "Zelda Zone" could show that the 2 games are at least in the same dimension.
2: Look at Links shield, it has some special artwork on it. Look at the center of it. See those wings and bird shaped form. Look familiar? What if i told you that the bird shape on his shield shares a striking resemblance to Solaris, the molder of time from Sonic 06. Now you see the similarities?
3: so Solaris is the molder of time, right? time that could mean, maybe, as i OCARINA of time?
thank you for accepting this debate, either way this turns out, it was fun.
After studying the maps of Hyrule pre-flood and New Hyrule (the most late canon Zelda material), I've found no evidence that these two worlds share landforms or features tat would imply they are the same planet.
If they were on different planets in the same Universe, then the burden of proof isn't on me to deny it, but on the one with this theory to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that these two canons exist in tandem. If no solid evidence beyond cameos can support this theory, then it sinks.
Also, some Sonic games do have ancient temples, them being the Gaia temples seen in Sonic Unleashed, for all we know, Sonic's were-hog form could be using the same kind of energy Ganan uses (don't use that last sentence against me, it's probably not accurate, just my speculation).
There is also a theory people are discussing, that every Nintendo universe is connected, so if the Sonic-Zelda connection is actually true, that would mean Sonic could also be connected to every other Nintendo franchise (including Mario).
Thank you for accepting this debate, it has been in my head for a long time.
Solaris does bear a striking resemblance to the bird emblem on the Hylian Shield, and I'll give you mad props for binging that to my attention. Couple things though: two things that look similar don't necessarily mean they're in the same universe. Secondly, Sonic 06, the game Solaris is from, is pretty much wiped off of the Sonoc cannon. It's existence was erased and restarted, so the beings/events/places in Sonic 06 and before were erased and replaced.
Lastly, just because these two series COULD have been on the same planet/ in the same universe doesn't mean they were. We need more solid evidence than two similar looking birds to, beyond a shadow of a doubt, claim Sonic and Zelda exist in the same reality.
