What is Painter XI? I hope that you don't believe that he's a Stalfos because he isn't. So many people assume that.

Painter XI is a painting software. Just like Photoshop, Paint Tool Sai etc.
And I know he's not a stalfos :)

Looks fantastic! I feel an uncanny connection between the armor and the Chozo from Metroid

This is the Hero of Time in spirit form. Wonder why he chose that shape?

ANd so there is evidence suproting. ti IT is even said that Shade is the hero of time. and if stalfos are thsoe who died in the forest it makes sense. 
And why you guys so Angr about this, nto even i got so angry over the death of Roland.

ok then ill tel you
link went looking fro navy in the dark forest he then fell into that tree. and died during his acceptance of deadth he expiierenced Majoras mask. BUt at the end he still couldnt accept not been able to shars his knowledge as a hero ttransformng into shade.
IN twlilight princess he teaches the new hero his abilities.
you can alsso find skull kid in the game.

Falling on a flower does no damage to Link so it didn't kill him.

No offense but Game Theory isn't ALWAYS correct this is why I hate MatthewPatrick with a burning passion.

but that one does make snese, also notice its not the hero himself its his regret to not been able to pass by his abilities

It is the Hero of Time himself he's left handed like Link. Hyrule Historia confirms that it IS him also in Wind Waker The King of Red Lions says that the Hero of Time left the land that made him a legend. Regret? fuck Game Theory!

I've played Majora's Mask and I don't buy that. Besides, he left Termina at the end and returned to the forest with Epona and the Ocarina of Time, which were stolen.

Link was still a kid then and he didn't know the moves he taught TP's Link.

The truth is that we will never know what happened to Link on his journey to find Navi after Majora's Mask, but we do know that he chose to pass on what he learned in life to the next Hero.

Its absolutely positively wrong. The video is wrong.

The very same Hero's Bow made it to Hyrule. How does that happen if Link died in MM?

And, we've got the clear evidence he and Malon settled down in Kokiri Forest, what with the ranch, the horse's name, even the house looks the same. So yeah. Its wrong.

but how lnk surived the fal, how did epona surivived and appeared elsewhere, why isnt there any info of the hero of time burial, why does everything looks like drugs?, why does nobody else in hyrule worries about the falling moon.
all the NPC are the same cause its the only people he knew.

thats why the heros shade knew the fightstyle of the Hero, before any hyrule soldier knew them as they where later thought

When I played Twilight Princess listening to what he said about being a former warrior and then finding that mysterious gravestone in Hyrule castle I figured he used to be Link maybe the Link from Majora's Mask.
