I just discovered very recently that Sidon has some text that you only see if the game hasn’t loaded the king yet. It’s interesting that it’s even in the game! Were the developers that farsighted as to anticipate that might happen, or what?
I did this once just by flying into Zora’s Domain from one of the surrounding mountains. I did it a second time via flying machine. The key thing is that the king must not have been loaded in when you talk to Sidon.
If you’ve been to Inogo Bridge and talked to Sidon both there and at the entrance to Zora’s Domain, he’ll be waiting in the throne room and this is all that he says:
If you skip meeting him elsewhere and go straight to Zora’s Domain, you’ll notice he has more text:
You’ll notice the final text box in this latter case is the same thing he says when you’ve already met him before.
I still think this is really cool that this sort of thing is even in game. I never knew it existed!
