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

2 Twilight Princess/SSBB Link

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

Do people not get that this is all one link?

He's not fhe hero of time, that's OoT link. This is the hero of twilight.

Twilight Princess was the first ever Legend of Zelda game I have played, so it brings out this nostalgic feeling deep inside of me. This link incarnation is the best, in my opinion, because of the bleak, mysterious, sad vibe I get from him, his ability to transform into a wolf (wolves are my favorite animal), his detailed design with all those muted colors, his story/adventure/quest, and may more reasons.

And speaking of Twilight Princess, TP Zelda is also my favorite Zelda incarnation. Her overall look/design is beautiful, elegant, and just the right amount of BADASS. And it doesn't hurt that she's pretty badass herself, in personality. She actually acts like a royalty and chose to be a prisoner instead of having to be kidnapped like a damsel in distress, all for the safety of her people.

3 Skyward Sword Link

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

4 Wind Waker Link/Toon Link

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

10 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!

11 Breath of the Wild Link

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