Best Legend of Zelda Characters

The Top Ten

1 Midna Midna

Had more depth as a character. She had more dialogue and it was very interesting to see her grow. The other characters don't have quite as much personality as her. I also didn't enjoy interacting with them (With the exception of Link, of course) as I did with Midna.

Midna is one of the most interesting characters in the series. The whole game of Twilight Princess revolved around the bond between Link and Midna. As the game progressed foward, their bond kept becoming stronger and stronger. Midna definitely had the most character development in the series having first taken advantage of Link and then soon growing found of him. Her back story also pulled on the heart strings which made me love her even more.

This is not a tie there basically glued together there a team midna helps link kinda and wolf link does what she says they clear courses and push through
Everything and wolf links a dang dog and one finale thing midna can turn into a princess

Best zelda character?
Midna duh. She looks so HD in Hyrule warriors, that means she is more beautiful (even as an imp) and sexier (her human form ). Finally, she is the best. Her personality evolves amazingly very natural in her game. From hating to loving and much more other things. She stays with you in the whole game at all times, truly loves you, as a friend, even romantically. This things makes her the most intimate character of all time in the franchise aside of Link. No other zelda character can rival her for the single fact that Midna is your companion and she is the game.

2 Link Link Link refers to several different incarnations of the same protagonist of Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series.

Link is obviously the best character since he's pretty much the hero. He's brave, kind and sometimes humorous. Also he doesn't talk, but you can still tell what he's saying. So don't bother voting for anyone else but this guy!

Link is just the best. He is flat-out awesome, and I really like how he can effectively communicate his feelings without talking. And his skills and that classic green outfit are so iconic in the video games, not to mention the games wouldn't work, or wouldn't be as awesome without Link as protagonist. HOW CAN YOU PEOPLE VOTE FOR MIDNA?! The Hero of time needs your vote!

Speaking about link. Link makes the third spot if the series didn't have link there would be no series nothing said

It's not only my favourite LoZ character, it's my favourite character over all

3 Zelda Zelda Princess Zelda is a fictional character in Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda video game series, created by Shigeru Miyamoto and introduced in its original entry in 1986.

Have you seen how awesome she was specifically in Hyrule Warriors? Bingo! She deserves #1. Link was cool still, but Zelda was just way more awesome in this game.

Zelda has always been my favorite. In Ocarina of Time she's a complete badass. In Twilight Princess she sacrifices her kingdom and eventually her physical form to save Midna's life. In Hyrule Warriors she's easily one of the best characters and gives Link a run for his money. Not to mention she posses the Triforce of Wisdom. How cool is that?

She steals the name though Link should, but Zelda has a cooler name and it's more convenient... 'Legend of Link' doesn't sound right.

Did any of you see how cute she is in breath of wild though SO cute makes here the best!

4 Ganondorf Ganondorf Ganon (Referred to as Ganondorf in human form) is a fictional character and the central antagonist of Nintendo's Legend of Zelda series. He is a power-hungry Gerudo who possesses the Triforce of Power and aims to conquer Hyrule with the remaining Triforce parts.

He's invincible he can only be banished... and is the only villain in anything who actually successfully done what he set out to do and take over Hyrule...

can't think of any other villain succeeding in their plan.. usually foiled well before hand.. or moments before hand..

yes link stopped him.. but I'd say he murdered hundreds by himself as he's immune to attack bar the master sword, light,silver arrows..

in fact Ganondorf is the ultimate villain.. PURE EVIL

He basically gets beaten in every zelda game just like basically all games he they wouldn't have a story to legend of zelda

5 Skull Kid

He seems like a complete ass at first, but once you know his story you start to feel bad for him. He had no friends because of his annoying nature and he lived sad and alone until the fairies found him. He's one of those characters you feel bad for but also hate at times.

He is the most relatable character I have ever seen in a video game. He is just amazing.

Favorite Zelda character? He is my favorite video game character in general! - Dawscr

A great character who is overshadowed by the mask he wore. Great backstory and well developed, despite not appearing all that much. - LarkwingFlight

6 Ghirahim Ghirahim

He's easily the most interesting and kind of creepy villain. Ganondorf comes close as my favorite, but Ghirihim will always live in my heart as my favorite Zelda villain. Up your game Nintendo, if you want to outdo this masterpiece of a villain

I challenge Nintendo to make a better villain. Ghirahim is too good. They obviously spent a lot of time on his character and the writing and the game in general.

He is the epitome of a creepy, sadistic, crazy, and somehow still fabulous villain. He had amazing dialogue and is always entertaining

This is the only video game character or anyone that I am gay for. - MagmaFox

7 Saria Saria Saria is a fictional character in the Legend of Zelda video game series, making her debut in Ocarina of Time. She is a Kokiri, a race of never-aging children, who is Link's childhood friend and later, one of the six sages of Hyrule.

Saria has an amazing friendship with Link and that only makes her my favorite Zelda character.

She has a tragic yet beautiful story, and was a loyal friend to link right until the very end.

She's one of the nicest people in Zelda

Too bad that in the end she doesn't say about her feelings...

8 Medli

Medli is such a crucial character in the Wind Waker, and she is so charming in her own right that sometimes I wonder why people think Zelda should be the one marrying Link.

Few legend of Zelda characters get to be as charming as medli. She is not only pretty relevant in the story, but she offers one of the most complex and sweet attitudes in the game.

Medli is one beautiful girl. One can imagine her dancing in the sky, her broad, white wings riding the wind. Call me sappy or whatever. Medli is gorgeous. Of course I can't overlook her character. She is very sweet and thoughtful, even after the revelation that she is a sage. She will always be my favorite character in the Windwaker

Medli is the best character in Zelda.

9 Impa

Total badass! Either as commanding officer or the Hyrule imperial guard or as the awakened sage of shadow, Impa stands as one of the most capable fighters out there. Love her looks especially in Hyrule Warriors.

I really like Impa and I love the fact she is the 4th most seen Zelda character. ( I think she had the 4th most appearances next to Link Zelda and Ganondorf..

She is serious and sometimes mean

10 Groose

Groose as a character is hilarious and he also goes through some of the best character development in the history of this franchise. He is a lovable douche, who becomes a great buddy.

Groose is fantastic

He's out for kaboose

THE GROOSE IS LOOSE AND OUT FOR KABOOSE!

11 Navi Navi

Navi is cute fun and can be annoying but loveable

Not every Zelda Fan always say that Navi is such annoying Zelda Character. But hey, I like Navi

I really really love Navi. I think that Link and Navi are cute, funny and remarkable couple.

HEY! LOOK! LISTEN! NO YOU LISTEN

12 Tetra

Holy moly finnaly tetra she's from wind waker and awesome she has an awesome hair style she's a cool character for the series

(SPOILER ALERT)
By far one of the best Zelda portraits in the entire franchise.

13 Toon Link

At least he has a personality...

Hey, buddy! Don't hate! He's a cute kid. Plus, the upcoming Zelda for Wii U has adult Link.

Unlike other Links his quest is 1 of the more selfless ones. also he has a soft spot in me because windwaker was the first zelda game I completed. And he killed ganon. ALSO HE HAS HILARIOUS FACIAL EXPRESSIONS.

THE WORST LINK EVER! Classic Link waas better than him!

14 Tingle

How the Hell did Tingle make it into this list?

Tingle the greedy 40 year old man who wears a green spandex,has his own 2 games while most zelda characters have none and enslaves his brothers on his island named after himself. tingle is unforgettable.maybe the voters think that the main characters name is zelda.

15 Happy Mask Salesman Happy Mask Salesman

Well, while Skull Kid is my actual favorite Zelda character, I voted for my second favorite, the Happy Mask Salesman, because he is only #15, whereas Skull Kid is #5! I wasn't as surprised that Skull Kid so high on this list, because I already knew that he was a fan favorite. But I was surprised about the Happy Mask Salesman being so high - I didn't know that so many people liked him! He really is an intriguing character, though, as is Skull Kid! I wish that they wouldn't have chosen a picture of the Happy Mask Salesman's ''angry'' face - he looks kinda creepy with it and I'm worried that not as many people will vote for him if they see this face. They should have gone with a picture of his happy face - the one with the funny, almost maniacal smile! But definitely a great character in the series!

He's very mysterious and I like his facial expressions. Especially when he gets angry.

So mysterious. Makes you think he might be more than he appears. Very memorable character

His mystery makes him the hands down best character

16 Malon

Malon as such a sweet and lovable character in Ocarina. And I believe that Link ends up marrying her. If you look at how Link from TP is farmer it makes it highly likely that he is a descendant of Oot Link and Malon. And the girl who wins over the amazing Link is definitely a great person.

Outside Saria, she is one of the most down to Earth ladies that Link meets. Plus, Ocarina of Time was my first Zelda game so maybe I'm biased, but I've always had a soft spot for her.

There's a fairly plausible theory that Link from Ocarina of Time and Malon eventually marry, and that their descendant is Link from Twilight Princess. Make of that what you will.

Cute!

17 Lana

In Hyrule Warriors, Lana was a big part of the story in a way that she was the good half of the villain Cia. The scene where the two are together one last time is actually quite touching. Also, Lana is a blast to play as! - PeterG99

My favorite, deserves to be higher

She is cute and she is like bam bam

18 Vaati

Why is vaati only at number 15? Best zelda character ever!

He is number 20 now

He's number 18 now

19 Epona

Links dang horse. Epona gets called by a very special song Epona appeared in three games ocarina of time wind waker and finnaly twilight princess
