As part of my grand quest to ruin everything by explaining it, I’d like to point out how this particular scene with Princess Ruto. The purpose is to show that the Alt-White neopagan slash esoteric Jungian pagan interpretation of this game is likely the correct one. Here’s the transcript:
You! You looked cool…cooler than I thought you would, anyway…Just a little! Well, anyway, you saved me, so I guess I’ll reward you. What do you wish? Just tell me…You mean the Spiritual Stone of Water, Zora’s Sapphire, don’t you? My mother gave it to me and said I should give it only to the man who will be my husband. You might call it the Zora’s Engagement Ring!
All right! I’ll give you my most precious possession: Zora’s Sapphire!
Her most precious possession? You don’t know what she’s talking about, but you’ve finally collected all three spiritual stones! Go back to see Princess Zelda!
Don’t tell my father…
Immediately after this very suggestive scene, Link becomes a man. This puts a different spin on the imagery in the previous dungeon in the belly of Lord Jabu Jabu.
