Koroks named after Trees?
Similar to how most Kokiri had theme names, the first sylable being a musical note. Mido, Fado, etc... I'm thinking that the Koroks are for the most part named after various types of Trees.
Such as Rown/Rowan, Oakin/Oak, Hollo/Holly, Olivo/Olive, Linder/Linden, Irch/Birch, Elma/Elm, Aldo/Alder...
The only two that don't really fit are Makar and Drona... though, honestly I'm no expert on Tree names and Makar being different would be expected, seeing as Saria didn't fit the mold of the Kokiri names either.
Do you think this is worth mentioning? 188.8.131.52 05:37, 4 February 2009 (UTC)
Koroks = Hyrule's Answer to Kodama?
Anyone else ever notice the similarity between the Koroks and the Japanese mythological tree spirits, the Kodama - at least in their incarnation in Princess Mononoke? Both are small, involve/resemble trees, wear masks or have faces resembling masks, and make a wooden rattling sound when moving. Their names are also similar. I wonder if it may have been an inspiration for them, considering both are Japanese in origin? - Somarinoa (talk) 11:49, January 29, 2010 (UTC)
- Well it seems possible. Maybe an etymology section or something? Not sure. --EveryDayJoe45 (talk) 17:17, January 29, 2010 (UTC)
Theory on Kokiris and Koroks
korok is just the kokiri true form?
I always thought the implication behind kokiri and koroks was that their form as children was just something they took when link lived with them and their korok for is actually their true form, their reapearance in botw could support this as well as their ability to transform into different objects and the like, and the great deku tree in wind waker never says that they were children just that they once looked like children, so they very well could have just appeared that way whilst always being tree beings--Avangaruda (talk) 14:00, July 5, 2017 (UTC)
