“The racial animal of the Gerudo is the Hylian Oryx, a large antelope with horns on both males and females. Since they can go for long periods of time without food or water in their home in the desert and are very strong, the Gerudo adopted them as a symbol of their endurance and power. It is common for an Oryx to be kept in a pen with the horses in the Gerudo villages, and their bones (especially their skulls and horns) are used in rituals to bless the Gerudo king.
The Hylian Oryx is an important source of meat during the dry season, when everything else moved out of the Desert, as the Oryx stays behind. This is also used as a symbol of the loyalty the Gerudo have for their homeland. The rare leucistic or albino Oryx is considered to be an emissary of the Gods, while the equally rare red Oryx, which are only male, are symbols of the rare male Gerudo.”
"The goddess image carved into the front of the Spirit Temple was once as brightly-painted as the massive statue deep inside. The harsh desert sunlight has, however, bleached the pigment away, leaving behind nothing but plain stone."
“The Kokiri Sword was actually a small knife or dagger that Link’s mother had on her possession upon entering the Forest. The Great Deku Tree had it put safely away outside the village, so that none of the Kokiri would accidentally injure themselves on it. “
“Living in a barren desert has made the Gerudo very creative with their dishes. Though they prefer to hunt more normal quarry, they are not opposed to slaying, cooking, and eating monsters such as kees and leevers. (The latter makes an excellent, if rubbery, curry.) It takes a lot of spices to mask the unpleasant taste of these lesser meats, and thus Gerudo cooking is renowned for its heat and rich flavor.
Their unusual (sometimes toxic) diet has, over time, granted the Gerudo the most powerful livers of any Hyrulean race. They can drink just about anyone under the table.”
“Gorons reproduce by budding, and have no concept of gender in their culture. When they were introduced to Hylians and other gendered races, they simply adopted a male gender for the entire race, to keep things simpler when interacting with gendered raced. ”
“Due to their diet of rock, Gorons possess an incredibly high internal body temperature—they don’t so much digesttheir food as meltit. Because of this, their skin is hot to the touch, like beach sand on a sunny summer afternoon.”
“The Hero of Time started to have panic attacks afterOcarina. He would hold back the worst of it, even if no one was around to notice. Have you ever cried so hard that you were screaming and couldn’t stop? That’s what he did the few times he let loose.”
