Link - Legend of Zelda Hero

Link is the main protagonist in Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series of video games. Link has been featured in other video games from Nintendo like the super smash brothers series, including its merchandising, comic books, children s books and an animated television program. Link was awarded with a star on the Walk of Game in 2005, alongside Mario and Sonic the Hedgehog.
Link is depicted in some games as a human and in others as a Hylian boy from the fictional land of Hyrule. His age varies in each game, usually varying from pre-teen ages to a young adult. Link often travels through Hyrule, defeating creatures, evil forces and the series' primary antagonist, Ganon, while attempting to save Princess Zelda and her kingdom. To defeat him, Link usually requires the mystic Master Sword and Light Arrows, or a similar legendary weapon, obtained after many trials and battles gathering magical objects or using other items such as musical instruments and weaponry. Each Zelda storyline (normally) contains a different incarnation of Link, as whenever a new threat emerges in Hyrule, a new hero must arise.


  1. Link is one of my all time favourite game heroes, but they seem to be making him camper and camper. I've not really got a problem with this, I'm just wondering why he's gone from hardened bad-ass to, well, now.

  2. He's the hottest little Hyrulian ;3
