The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword & Buddhism

Game Theory: The Ancient Cistern temple in The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword is modeled after a Buddhist Temple. As a matter of fact, it is well known that many predominate employees of Nintendo happen to be Buddhists. Ancient Cistern even contains a giant golden statue of the Buddha in a lotus meditation position, and a scene that gets you climbing to enlightenment while being pulled down by zombies into the underworld. The pink lotus flowers that grow out of the murky waters of the cistern are actual symbolic representations of Buddhist history and method.
