Skyward Sword’s potentially awesome character connection to Twilight Princess

This could be one of the craziest Easter eggs in Skyward Sword… if it really is an Easter egg, that is. But there are some interesting similarities in what I’m about to describe.

So, Skyward Sword has a pub called the Lumpy Pumpkin. Twilight Princes has a similar location in Castle Town called Telma’s Bar. Pumm, Kina, Rusta, and Keet can all be found at the Lumpy Pumpkin on a regular basis. The same goes with “The Group”/”The Resistance”, who spend their time at Telma’s Bar. This group consists of Telma, Auru, Ashei, and Shad.

                 

                          

 

What’s most intriguing is how these characters’ looks are quite comparable. Pumm has his hair up and is a bit on the chubby side like Telma, and Rusta’s hair is very similar to Auru’s (they’re both old men, too!). Kina and Ashei look somewhat similar, as do Keet and Shad.

If this is at all confusing, I suggest you take a look at the comparisons in the gallery above. Comparison images from left to right: Ashei/Kina, Auru/Rusta, Shad/Keet, and Telma/Pumm.

I feel like this has to be more than a coincidence since Skyward Sword contains tons of references to past Zelda titles. What do you guys think?

I haven't played the game yet so I don't really know what to think. Can anyone who has played through the game tell us what they think of this??

It's well established that Nintendo is lazy. If I were in charge, I would take existing stuff and slightly alter it too. It's less work and someone out there might celebrate this laziness as genius.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

lol I knew you'd say that



Makes sense. If only they did something useful aside from bitch about you destroying their chandelier (if you didn't want it destroyed don't put a heart piece up there!), and then be way overly-critical about your harp-playing skills

It was fun giving the old Mogma to Kina, though



Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.

wow it is so similar... with 25th anniversary and so many links to the past, this is pure genius.

I have not either gotten that far or noticed these characters, but they do look alike! Now if we could only figure out who they used to play tingle!

They do look alike, that´s something i love about the series...

Also, today i was playing OoT 3D and discovered a poster of skyward sword on the gerudo fortress, it was really cool and somewhat funny.

This is similar to Lon Lon Ranch characters being similar to the Super Mario Bros. series characters lol

Wouldnt be surprised!

Maybe their ancestors of the Twilight princess characters!?!

I liked more the designs of Twilight Princess, but Pumm sidequest is one of the best in the Zelda series, imo.
