  1. the reason i put in my last comment “he only appears in skyward sword” is because it say’s “a recurring character in the series” and that is actually wrong.

  2. kaepora pass isn’t actually a easter egg (or least i dont think it is) technically the guy’s name is actually gaepora and only appear’s in skyward sword as the headmaster of the academy.

  3. All of the Divine Beasts names have some sort of correlation with the sages in OoT, Naboris – Nabooru, Ruta – Ruto, Rudania – Darunia, etc.

    • Not all sages from OoT. Medoh isn’t an anagram nor has any correlation to any of the sages from OoT. I think, and it is speculated that because of the fact that it’s based off the Rito, the name may be a play off of Medli, the Sage of Earth from Wind Waker.
