I've got to question the merge here, because honestly, the Magic Mirror is used primarily (among other uses, like returning to the start of a dungeon) to ESCAPE the Dark World, whereas the Mirror of Darkness was used to TRAP an ancient tribe in some prison realm.

Anyone ELSE see a major distinction there, or is it just me? Dinosaur bob 14:31, 10 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm actually more in favor of taking the merge even further to include the Mirror of Twilight. There is so much speculation regarding all of the mirrors being related that I think it would be useful to have the information in one place.
There's certainly a chance of them all being separate and unrelated, but it seems unlikely. While they are all described and named differently in the games, they all share the ability of world-travel. All of them lead to other worlds. The Mirror of Darkness and Mirror of Twilight also share that they sealed away an "evil tribe."
In other words, I think this page should stay how it is, unless we want to merge even more into it.--Yumil 17:10, 10 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm in favour of splitting. Yes, these are all mirrors which allow to some form of travel, but they are all named differently and have different abilities, whereas there's nothing hinting they are the same thing. Or at least, nothing exceeding similarities such as also present in the Pendants of Virtue/Spiritual Stones/Goddess Pearls/Holy Metals or a good number of TLOZ/TAOL enemies. We don't merge/havemerged those either. IfIHaveTo 20:47, 10 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm with Yumil on this, I think this one page could be used as a work in progress, beef up the sections and then go for a split from there. And then cross-reference the other mirrors' pages to prevent some additions made from people that search for nothing. Other merges we don't have are sort of a flaw. I mark them as I see them, but never really hunt them down. Well it's 2 to 2 on this :P Nayru help us all Axiomist (talk) 03:33, 11 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I belive a split is in order. The Dark Mirror has absolutely zero to do with the Magic Mirror, and there is not much that can be related between them, except that they're mirrors. Right now, this article is confusing as it states that the Magic Mirror appears in FSA while it does not. And I don't think the Mirror of Twilight and Dark Mirror should be merged either. A cross-reference should be enough. Merging the two would make for a real messy article. Nerushi 21:11, 21 May 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Mm. Yeah, I was for splitting this but I never did leave a comment. I think we should split them because it's VERY confusing to readers. I know I was confused when I came upon this.Justin(Talk) 22:15, 21 May 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
