Every Zelda ever: only the chosen one, destined to banish evil from our realm may wield the master sword

Ocarina of Time: you were too young to be the chosen hero and wield the sword, so you slept for several years before the sword chose you as its master.

Wind Waker: Yo so I know you’re not actually the chosen hero or anything and you only just turned ten, but we really need a hero so here’s the master sword lol go kill some things kid

During the treehouse live at E3 2016, when asked about Zelda spin offs Eiji Aonuma briefly mentioned talk among his staff about a Sheik game. 

So I lost my fuckin marbles and thought it’d be interesting to conceptualize a story about where the title of Sheik came from and what it means. Perhaps a story that takes place just at the tail end of the sheikah people’s mass genocide.

This is SUUUUPER self indulgent.

SunShine - Master Sword

I really liked that playthrough. This was a nice trip down memory lane. Thanks, Master Sword.

Fi: *literally could choose anyone with excellent combat/sword training that can whoop serious ass*

Fi: Nah. You all are worthless. I require someone with certain qualifications.

Link: *walks up with bedhead hair, yawning as he trips over his own two feet to the ground, then falls asleep instantly*

Fi: Behold, the one with the Spirit of the Hero is here. He will wield the Master Sword and save all of Hyrule.
