Top 10 Incarnations of Link

Link. The Hero of Time! The Legendary Hero! The Hero of Winds! Hero Chosen by the Gods! Throughout the history of Hyrule, and times, before it, there has been a hero clad in green to protect the land. But which one is the best?

The Top Ten

1 Ocarina of Time/Majora's Mask/SSBM Link

Oot and MM link/ hero of time is the best because: He fought Ganondorf, Ganon and Majora, He relived the same damned three days for at least 10 times, he went through some pretty dark games that I am not even sure why they kept there e for everyone rating and he was not recognized as a hero for his original adventure in the timeline he went back to. Plus he never knew his mom or his dad. He also had the most annoying fairy Cough Cough Navi and the most rude fairy Cough Cough Tatl.

OOT Link is the best Link in the entire series. He went through way more crap than the any other Link so far.

He also trains Twilight Princess Link

It’s my favorite

2 Twilight Princess/SSBB Link

He is hawt and he is mine.

Plus he turns into a fluffy adorable wolf.

To me, this is the ultimate hero. And the one that I grew up with (For many others it would be the OoT Link or Wind Waker. But this Link, to me, completely embodies the Hero of Time. - higgsboson2142

One word: SEXY

Do people not get that this is all one link?

3 Skyward Sword Link

This Link is a selfish jerk who stayed on the surface with zelda because he's too clingy of her and can't stand to be a minute away from her. He shows too much emotion, is too fleshed out, shows too much chemistry between Zelda (I get it, Nintendo! ), holds hands with her, and stares at her crying like a crybaby at the end smiling like a cruel bastard. - Pinkarray

I thought SS's cell-shaded style vividly brought this Link to life. - higgsboson2142

4 Wind Waker Link/Toon Link

He's very expressive. With Ocarina of Time you just have Link going "HNG" or something like that, with literally 2 facial expressions: Mouth closed and mouth open. Here, Link has many expressions, allowing for an overall more expressive character in general. - Marxcute19

What can I say? At least he isn't the weakest link *Cue Rimshot*

This character always has that courageous look about him, ready to do anything. - higgsboson2142

5 A Link to the Past Link

This should be paired with a link between worlds link even though they aren't the same link. They even share enough similarities that they both even turn to a bunny in the dark world.

With that out of the way, What other link can save the world while being a literal bunny for parts of the game where he can not attack in any way or form? none other than this guy. What other link goes out of their way to do someones last wish which was play their own song and give the flute/ocarina back to their father?
What other Link has carried a golden sword that is twice as powerful as the master sword? What other link still went to save zelda and the other 6 maidens even after being accused of kidnapping the princess?
This link was truly heroic and he did it even while being ridiculed and being an enemy to the royal palace throughout the whole game.
This also was the first link to get both the pegasus boots and the hookshot so that gives him some extra bonuses as well.

This was also the Link in a Link to the past and the Oracle games (He's really called the hero of legends)

6 The Legend of Zelda Link
7 Breath of the Wild Link

Best link ever. He has the most weapons and even has high tech! This version of Link is a total badass.

The blue cloths are a nice change and ad freshness to the character

How is the CD-i Link above this? - shawnmccaul22

Yes'm put this above cdi

8 Oracle of Ages/Seasons Link
9 TV Series Link

Well excuse me princess. - Skullkid755

10 Hyrule Warriors Link

Not canon, so I'm not sure if it counts, and that's why it's back here (Initially #8) - higgsboson2142

The Contenders

11 CD-i Link

I'm just putting this here because I couldn't think of any more Links! Do NOT, vote for this thing! - higgsboson2142


Oh boy, I can't wait to bomb some Dodongos!
I'm so hungry, I could eat an oktorok!

12 Fierce Deity / ONI Link

Definitely the strongest form link will probably ever get in any Zelda game

13 Deku Link
14 Zora Link
15 Goron Link
16 Dark Link

Cut him some slack. I mean he lives in the Water Temple, and we all know how hard that would be.
