He's the master of swords!
He's THE hero he deserves credit
He is the best - OrangeRin
I get why people like Midna (I like her a lot). But when it comes to the best character of the series, it has to be Link!V 36 Comments
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.
She is more valid as a love interest for Link than zelda thanks to the spectacular character design and execution.
The friendship/relationship of Midna and Link it's the most beautiful of the entire series, the pump of Twilight Princess. The end of the game always breaks my heart.
Zelda can't compare, Midna is godlike, the imp always stayed with Link at all times, interacted with him, logically she was the true significant for him (as a true friend and lover). Midna touches links face, she was in link's arms, flirts him, gives support, smiles at him and laughs, she can make a sacrifice for you (not exaggerated).
True love it's not about of just wanting someone, it's being with that person and doing anything to make happiness and better moments together in life. I found these things in Midna and it's almost impossible to leave her of my mind and heart after years of my first play though of Twilight Princess. Her main theme and variations are beautiful (Midna's ...more
I want Midna to be number 1!
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.V 42 Comments
Like the only video game princess that isn't just some damsel in distress, especially in BOTW - erock04
Zelda is the best she gives link his childhood
She isn’t another Princess Peach, in windwaker and Breath Of The Wild, she has an amazing personality and seems like a mature, yet curious and spirited princess.
I love Zelda she is the only prinesees that helps the hero and has powers!V 17 Comments
The ocarina of time ganon fight is cool.
Able to have so much diversity game to game but still stick with that essence that truly makes him ganondorf. - Fat_Turtle_Gamez
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 zeldaV 5 Comments
I honestly think he's better than Ganondorf. Heck, I think that he's the best video game character (In my opinion anyway).
Skull kid my favorite, when I first saw him, I was like you complete jerk, but after squinting it really hard at the screen really hard, I saw his sad backstory, I was super happy that he had a happy ending, unlike disney villains, YEAH WALT DISNEY!
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.
It's a Zelda villain that isn't Ganon. He is original, has an awesome design, great back story and actually feels like a threat. He, and the mask, is probably the most iconic character in my opinion.V 11 Comments
Literally a flamboyant, crazed sociopath. Best villain in the series
This character is amazing. He is a perfect villain, psychotic and bloodthirsty. And he is actually a weapon used to kill others.
His personality, oh god.
He is honestly, the best character ever in the seriesV 20 Comments
Saria is by far my favorite character. Link would be just second on my book to be honest.
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 ZeldaV 3 Comments
Everyone knows he's got the best pompadour in town...
He is fabulous XDDD - OrangeRin
THE GROOSE IS LOOSE AND OUT FOR YOUR CABOOSE! - IceFoxPlayz
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.V 4 Comments
Medli is simply the best. I have a friend who's never played a Zelda game but is addicted to 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 WindwakerV 6 Comments
I played Windwaker HD and loved it, not to mention it was my first Zelda. - MarioBros11
Toon Link should be at number 1/2/3, because he has a much better personality, and he possessed the ORIGINAL great spin attack and back slice (called hurricane spin and parry strike respectively) plus he is the only Link to actually KILL Ganondorf. (Toony's much better at his job)
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.V 5 Comments
She is a savage and a very good person in game
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.V 2 Comments
The only Zelda who doesn't know she's Zelda. - MarioBros11
Tetra is keemstar here - B1ueNew
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
By far one of the best Zelda portraits in the entire franchise.
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.V 7 Comments
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 characterV 1 Comment
Simply wonderful. Fantastic development, and impossible to ignore; Tingle has spawned many spinoff games and is truly great.
I love little Tingly Tingle. - MarioBros11
He's Just... So special...
How the Hell did Tingle make it into this list?V 2 Comments
I don't get how Sheik is below Tingle, he's obviously a more likeable character what with the mysterious charm and playing the lute and stuff.
I love Sheik's theme in OOT. I don't know why, but it's captivating and I love Sheik. - RosalinaX
Technically zelda but okay? - Pokemonfan10
Good charact!V 6 Comments
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.
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
How can u call dark link REMOTELY...cute?!
he is best
He is my all time favorite character! He is so cute!
HE IS AMAZING
Adorable and sweet and at the same time badass and awesome
A beautiful character who needs more recognition
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
Hey! why isn't she on the list? She is such a likeable character.
He's sexist if you don't do the main objective 'Find Zora's Domain' and just go there. He says, "The king is not accepting visitors at this time. Pardon my manners, but are you a Hylian? " - MarioBros11
Exact explanation of a chick magnent
He is too kind (I am sorry, my oppinion) and too late girls, there are others out there (In the game lol) that HE MIGHT CHOOSE (srry I da heart breaker) - Foxillusion
I am in love with him! - ShinyEevee101V 7 Comments
Ah yes... the Zora with the most beautiful, and tragic backstory. I would love a prequel to Breath of the Wild, just to see more of her. She also had a heartbreaking backstory everybody cried over.
Shes pretty - princessMiAmore
The thing on the switch that made me closest to becoming a furry. - Fat_Turtle_Gamez
AgreedV 1 Comment
Revali is awesome
I just love him
He's got a nice voice - princessMiAmore
He's a jerk but I like him. Everybody has flaws! - MarioBros11V 11 Comments
How is Vaati this low? Vaati is the best character in the whole Legend of Zelda! Four Swords for life! by the way Zelda don't steal that master sword
Why is vaati only at number 15? Best zelda character ever!
Childhood crush, luscious hair and his laugh
He is number 20 nowV 1 Comment
SHES SO ADORABLE
Marin is one of the first characters with any kind of depth to actually have any kind of a meaningful relationship with link. a lot of other characters, both male and female, are simply there to progress the story - but Marin actually shares aspects of the adventure with link, and the two of them have a lot of interesting interactions that don't necessarily have to relate to the story progression. Personally, I really liked taking her to the Trendy Game ;p
From Link's Awakening, this was the first character that I felt had any depth, and I really cared about her. Despite only appearing on the Gameboy, she was self-sacrificial, interesting, and likeable. And her song is awesome!
The best female Zelda character.
I like Marin because she seems like a good girl on the outside, but on the inside she's pure evil, for example if you attack a cucco at first she'll tell you to stop, but if you keep attacking the cucco she'll eventually say - do it! Do it more!
Zant is just... Zant!
Zant is dope
Zant is bae
The true embodiment of evil and hatred. It just wants to destroy without reason. After destroying everyone's lives individually, he brings down a demonic moon to "put everyone out of there misery." Rated e for everyone my ass
Please just please rank him higher. Such a marvelous character and pulls off one of the funniest moments in the series
Bye far my favorite ocarina of time character. Sworn brothers.
How can the best zelda character ever be 25! VOTE PEOPLE
I love it when he dances to Saria's song
MAKAR IS THE BEST CHARACTER EVER! (Next to Beedle, of course, but I don't see him on this list)
I love Makar, everyone loves Medli and she gets to reappear, does everyone forget the fact that Makar was actually playable? He's adorable and pretty funny.
Why does Makar get no love? He is such a cute little sprout lol
I wish he wasn't only in Windwaker. He's so cute I just wanna snuggo witto Makar so much! 😗 - MarioBros11
Old Man is the best! Without him Link would have died in the original game. In case you didn't know the old man referred in this is the old man that gives link the sword in the original Legend of Zelda game. His most famous line is "It's dangerous to go alone. Take this." After that he gives Link the sword.
"It's dangerous to go alone. Take this."
What old man?
I HATE THIS BOi
Why is he so low?
He wears a bunny outfit. Enough said
Ravio is the best he is amazing and cute and even more amazing Ravio for presidentV 2 Comments
He's what would happen if groose was reborn in the era of the winds. Such a great character. Deserves his own game in my opinion.
I want more adult era games just to have more of him
I really think that phantom hourglass is a unrated Zelda game that brought a lot of cool facts to the franchise, and I think this mainly because of linebeck.
he's a charming, humane and well rounded character who covers himself with a "narcissistic and selfish" coat. I just love him.
He's a self-absorbed, narcissistic, cowardly arsehole... and he's bloody hilarious! It's a shame he's in a game generally loathed by Zelda fans, I have a feeling that were he in any other game he'd be universally adored.V 3 Comments
I personally think that urbosa is an awesome character and also is kinda funny at times. Hands down the best champion after Mipha
So glad they brought him back in BOTW! - MarioBros11
He's so funny! - neehawgamer
OHHH THANK YOU!
Although he's a major Jerk in the beginning he has a change of heart after 7 year's it seems like he actually misses you.
Am I the only one who likes Mido?
Ruto is still my favorite Zora in Zelda Series...
WHERE IS THE RUTO LOVE
Shes so annoying and
she yells at you for no reason
Some girls would go gay for Ruto
So silly-looking - MarioBros11
Sad to see her so low, she is by far my favourite character in Link Between Worlds and one of my absolute favourite characters! Her character looks, feels and acts differently than many characters in the game and so she's quite refreshing. It also feels as if she's given a bit of character development which, understandably, isn't a big focus in most games. Been a while since I played that game but she always sticks in my mind!
I just love how she looks act's and what she will do for her kingdom. She is better than Zelda only by the fact she will fight
I love Hilda, she was way more badass than Zelda was in that game. Plus (in my opinion) I thought she had a great personality
Yeah I love Hilda! Seeing the contrast between her and Zelda's personality is very interesting!V 3 Comments
Would be nice to see Aryll again.
Aryll is sweet,nice and pretty cool with us all the way and link is always so happy too see her.Aryll and Link just have a great bro and sis relationship
I like this guy. He's based off of Mario
This piece is what all true warriors strive for.
Kinda looks like my friend Gabe - Fat_Turtle_Gamez
Oh hell naw!
Squadala, and we're off! - Torchpost
He trains you - MarioBros11
