Do we really know anything about the Rito history and government? I mean, I don't have Wind Waker so I don't know personally...
Well we don’t know much about it, but we know from the Rito Chieftain and his son Prince Komali that they have some kind of monarchy style chiefdom. We also know a little bit about there history from Medli.--ShutUpNavi 19:50, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

About the Gerudo theory

TALK – Favorite article: Sheikah
The theory claims that the Gerudo race is similar to the Rito by the facts that is composed by full females and one male (Ganondorf) in the case of the Gerudo and many males and one female (Medli) in the case of the Rito. Komali's Grandmother should not be named to distrust the theory because comparing with the Gerudo, there was one male before Ganondorf, K grandma coul be the one before Medli. Hoskit's girlfriend can be named but, also, I don't recall the claim that states that she was in fact a Rito., remenber additionally that Gerudo womens copulated with other races too.

Your idea makes little if any sense. Do you think she died and Medli was born immediately after? No. She was Medli's mentor meaning they were alive at the same time. She just happened to die right before Link reaches Dragon Roost Island.

Yep, I was wrong with that. The Gerudo male is born every 100 years, not when the other dies. She could have live when Medli did. Anyway, she doesn't need to be placed.

EveryDayJoe45 – "Ours was the first revolution in the history of mankind that truly reversed the course of government, and with three little words: "We the people." "We the people" tell the government what to do, it doesn't tell us. "We the people" are the driver, the government is the car. And we decide where it should go, and by what route, and how fast. Almost all the world's constitutions are documents in which governments tell the people what their privileges are. Our Constitution is a document in which "We the people" tell the government what it is allowed to do. "We the people" are free."--Ronald Reagan
I dont see why not seeing as that statment is placed there purely as a counter argument. So why wouldn't we mention that there is at least 3 that we know of (since they were all alive at the same time at one point).

If we compare with Gerudo. There was a Ganondorf ancestor that could have live more than 100 years and that was Ganondorf mentor, there is Ganondorf, and there is the Hylian boyfriend, of, I don't know, Nabooru by example. In Rito we have Komalis Grandma that will take the spot of Ganondorf ancestor, we have Medli that coul be Rito's Ganondorf, and Hoskit girlfriend that take the role of Nabooru's Hylian boyfriend.

In this case we don't know Hoskit girlfriend race, so she could be the couterargument, but the grandma fits in the theory.

You should type exactly what you told me into the mainspace. That would be a better move than removing the grandmother and leaving the girlfriend. It may be tricky to do, but I'm sure you could word the comparison well enough with a little work so it sounds good.

Well will go something like: Similar enough the Gerudo is a race composed only by females and one male is born every one hundred years, the Rito are alike but in this case this bird like race is composed by only males and one female (Medli). If the hundred-years rule is applied to the Rito, then it will mean that Rito's life period surpass the 100 years in order to Komali's Grandmother to teach Medli about the care of Valoo. Also to counter this theory, there exist Hoskit's girlfriend, but there is never stated her being a Rito, it must be remember that the Gerudo had Hylian boyfriends.

This works? When I wrote the original (the one that is already on the article), I just wanted to point out the coincidence, not as a major fact for theory.

(GMo >:M:< (talk) 14:05, November 8, 2009 (UTC)) It is said in the game that 'Female Rito love Golden Feathers' and they give a hint that you can get a heart piece by trading some. So it can be assumed that the girlfriend is a Rito.

Rito = Zora. Aonuma confirms it?

For anyone reading this check out the forums. According to a Japanese statement from Zelda developer Eiji Aonuma, the Rito are indeed evolved from the Zora. You can find what it said here. Please come to discuss how this affects this article.--ShutUpNavi (talk) 15:15, February 17, 2010 (UTC)

Suggestions for improvement?

Just to make sure this article is fully fleshed out incase it becomes a featured article, dose anyone have any suggestions on what I can improve of? Also do you think this page covers enough info because I was thinking of adding a quotes page, image gallery, and an in-game appearance section. The game appearance section would talk about the role the Rito played in The Wind Waker's plot, such as Link traveling to their island and calming down Valoo, or Medli becoming a sage. Do you think that these sections would be helpful, or would they just take up space without adding anything important?--ShutUpNavi (talk) 22:51, April 25, 2010 (UTC)

All of those seem useful. -Isdrakthul ( 23:26, April 25, 2010 (UTC))
Uh, shouldn't it really be fleshed out before it's granted featured article status? --AuronKaizer! 02:12, April 27, 2010 (UTC)
Yes, that why I am asking now before the article gets featured. If you think my suggestions for fleshing out the page would help it I could get to work.--ShutUpNavi (talk) 02:43, April 27, 2010 (UTC)
That's not exactly my point. The main parts (obviously, small acts of cleanup and such don't count) should be finished before you make the actual nomination. What if you don't get the time to finish it before it receives the promotion? It's more of a question of principle than anything. --AuronKaizer! 02:47, April 27, 2010 (UTC)
What AK is getting at is that you already nominated it. He's saying that you should have asked this/done this before you nominated it, because there is no guarentee that it will be featured.-- C2 / CC 02:49, April 27, 2010 (UTC)

Okay.... can you find them? Or do you want someone to look for some more? Stating a want/fact without anything else to elaborate isn't being all that helpful. But yes I agree, it does lack in images.-- C2 / CC 02:56, April 27, 2010 (UTC)
The header is titled "Suggestions", so I suggested something. —Baltro [ talk · edits ] 03:04, April 27, 2010 (UTC)

Well OK, I guess I nominated the article prematurely then. I'll admit it's my own fault for not thinking what more I could add to the page before nominating it. I guess I will take this off the featured article voting page for now, at least in till I add all this stuff (assuming everyone likes it).--ShutUpNavi (talk) 03:01, April 27, 2010 (UTC)

New Zora->Rito Evolution Theory

I think I may have caught on to something here. So it's common knowledge, by now, that the Rito only begin to grow their bird-like features after they receive a scale from their "Great sky spirit Valoo" right? Well what if the same were true about the Zoras? They, much like the Rito, also had what they considered to be a "great spirit"- "Lord JabuJabu." My theory is that the Zora and Rito ARE, in fact, the very same race, and that their adaptation is simply controlled by the scales they use.

This would also imply the change from Zora to Rito could simply have been due to the death of "Lord JabuJabu" and the adoption of "Valoo".(a very practical scenario)

Another reason I reached this hypothesis was the unexplained silver and golden scale items from OoT. The thought that a mere fish scale could somehow give you the ability to say underwater for longer periods of time always used to pick at the back of my brain. However, if the scale is from JabuJabu and has the ability to genetically alter the holder, this begins to make sense.(Better yet, let's just say it's magical. XP) I know some of you are probably thinking: "So then, why doesn't Link turn into a Zora?" Well, I think both age and exposure probably explain that. For instance, the Rito kind-of seem more human than the Zora, but we already know that the Rito don't get their scales until at least age 10 or so right? So what if they got them at an even earlier age? Isn't it likely then, that they would probably be less human like the Zoras? The same would, therefore, be true about Link. If you still don't like that theory, there is also the possibility that the Zora and Rito could simply be extra sensitive to the scales as a race.

Please let me know what your thoughts are on this theory.

Should we merge the Rito & Zora articles?

Considering they are the same species, the Rito being a slightly evolved form, shouldn't the two articles be the same? 15:34, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

Is there any possibility that the Fokka are the Downfall Timeline version of the Rito, they are both bird-like humanoid races. Or maybe the Fokka are an offshoot of the Rito like how the Yiga Clan is an offshoot of the Sheikah. Sidapa0 (talk) 11:44, April 5, 2017 (UTC)
