How was this plot twist received at the time? I was a tot and my family has a PS1 so honestly I didn't even know this was a spoiler. I learned casually from Melee and didn't play OOT until maybe 2009.

When I played this back in the day I wasn't totally convinced Sheik was Zelda even after it was revealed, mainly because Sheik looks totally different (darker skin, different eyes, masculine body with flat chest and pectorals, etc).

For the most part, I thought it was cool though, but to this day I'm still confused, does Zelda uses magic to shapeshift, or she's really good at makeup and disguise?

I'm pretty sure I had it spoiled for me at some point so I can't say it had any effect on me.

In hindsight it's incredibly obvious.

Zelda mysteriously disappeared and there's this blonde girl around your age following you. And yes, Sheik is a reverse trap but it's not that hard to notice she's a girl. Light voice (she squeaks when she gets attacked), no bulge, chest binding (and that noticeable covering right on her chest), athletic female body, face covered up.. You just don't notice at the time. It takes a second play

She uses magic.

I never realized Shiek was Zelda at the time, but looking back there are fucking tons of implications and foreshadowing. Some of which don't even make sense.

Both. The skin, possibly hair, and eyes are magic. Everything else is crossdressing.

I know plenty of pre-everything ftm, female crossdressers, crossplayers, and just boyish women. It's possible. It helps that she covers up a good portion of her body. If her scarf wasn't there she'd probably look more feminine.

Even in the manga, which isn't canon to the games, still has Sheik as female bodied.

Someone on /co/ did an overlay of Zelda and Shiek and the body lined up perfectly, even the broad shoulders.

I guess I never really noticed if the bodies aligned, since Zelda uses a dress.

So it's half magic to change her skin, hair and eyes, and reverse trap to cover her boobs.

Zelda is pretty fit.

This literally isn't an issue. Nintendo had said she's female. Everything points toward her being female. People are just butthurt because they got trapped.
