Now Viewing: Link


Tag type: Character

The main protagonist of The_Legend_of_Zelda series. He wears a distinct green tunic and hat. His appearance has changed a few times over the franchise. In the art for the early Zelda games, he is drawn as shorter and having slightly darker hair, but after Ocarina of Time, he is generally drawn as a blond-haired young boy or a tall young man with pointy ears and is always left-handed. According to Koizumi Yoshiaki in an Iwata Asks interview, he altered Link's appearance, particularly his nose, after his wife asked him why Nintendo characters had strange noses and didn't have any handsome male characters. This slightly redesigned and more handsome Link was very well-received and subsequent games as well as fan art tend to depict Link in this fashion. His most iconic design is notably somewhat androgynous looking, which has spawned plenty of genderswap artwork and ultimately an official female version of him named Linkle, introduced in the 3DS version of Zelda Musou. He is also infamously often assumed to be Zelda by people unfamiliar with the Zelda franchise.

He is notable for never talking outside of battle cries, but despite his lack of dialogue, he is depicted as a courageous and heroic young man. He also has visible facial expressions and body language so his personality can be inferred by some of his actions. Also, characters often respond to Link as if he has spoken so it seems that Link is technically capable of talking, but the player doesn't hear it. However, in appearances in non-interactive mediums like manga, he talks frequently. The OOT incarnation of Link is also the only Link to have extended pieces of dialogue, but he does not talk in any of his playable appearances. He only talks in his Hero's Shade persona in Twilight Princess, acting as a mentor to TP Link.

Although Link technically is not the same person in each Zelda game barring direct sequels, the Links are all collectively referred to as Link and seem to have roughly the same appearance and personality. The same applies for Princess Zelda although Ganon is suggested to be the same person. Fans often refer to the Links after the game the incarnation debuted in for clarification. For example, the Link that stars in Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask is referred to as 'OoT Link.'


He also seems to have quite a few female companions and women who are strongly implied to have romantic feelings for him. With the exception of Spirit Tracks, Skyward Sword, and Zelda Musou which have much stronger romantic subtext, Zelda games generally do not focus on romance and the nature of Link's feelings towards any of the women is ambiguous.

He primarily uses a sword and a shield in combat, but in each game, he amasses a lot of gear that he uses in combat and to solve puzzles in dungeons.

He is popular enough to make appearances in crossovers like Smash Bros. and was the guest fighter for the Gamecube release of Soul Calibur 2.

His name is a reference to one of the original concepts of The Legend of Zelda. Originally, the Triforce fragments were computer chips and the original game was to involve time travel between the past and the future. Link was the 'link' between these time periods.

Miyamoto intended Link to be a protagonist that players can easily relate to and identify with. Through Link, players can get the chance to go on grand adventures and become a larger than life hero.

He is voiced by Fujiko_Takimoto (Young Link in Ocarina of Time and Super Smash Bros Melee), Hiyama_Nobuyuki (Adult Link in Ocarina of Time, Super Smash Bros. 1 and Melee, Soul Calibur 2), Matsumoto_Sachi (Toon Link in Wind Waker, Phantom Hourglass, Super Smash Bros Brawl), Sasanuma_Akira (Twilight Princess, Super Smash Bros. Brawl), and Kodaira_Yuki (Spirit Tracks), Ohara_Takashi (Skyward Sword), and Takanashi_Kengo (Breath of the Wild)
