1. A flawed method of reasoning which states that if one thing can beat another, and that second thing can beat another thing, then the first thing can beat the third. In reality there are far too many factors involved for that to be consistantly true. It is ironicly named after the popular game of rock-paper-scissors which is a clear example of how it is faulty.
"Well, Link is powerful enough to defeat Ganon and Ganon was powerful enough to conquer Hyrule, so Link could conquer Hyrule too!" "No way. Stop using rock-paper-scissors logic."
