A Closer Look at the Lore of Items in Zelda

The items in Zelda games never fail to fascinate. In many cases, the items represent something found in the real world, yet they always have a twist in terms of design and lore found only in the games. Many theories can be found for the lore in Zelda, and this item is definitely deserving of some attention, even if it is a starting key item in Twilight Princess. I was enthralled to obtain this item in the game, and found its ability not only useful but neat to witness the boomerang spinning through the air with a whirlwind animation. Youtuber Dr.Wily delves into the boomerang’s lore and forms some solid theories about where such an item might have come from.

The in-game description of the item is what he bases his theory on, and it expands from there into some deep thoughts on this item. Who created the boomerang? What was its original purpose? How did it end up in the hands of the leader of the monkeys in Twilight Princess? All of these questions and more are covered by Dr.Wily as he takes on what could possibly be the history of this boomerang. This and more on everything Zelda, can be found here at Two Guys Playing Zelda.
