Top 10 Best The Legend of Zelda CharactersThe Legend of Zelda is a fantasy adventure video game franchise from Nintendo. The series centers on the Hylian warrior Link and the magical Princess Zelda as they fight to save the land of Hyrule from Ganon, an evil demon king.
Link may not speak, but he is a great hero. He (like every hero) has his faults but that does not define him. He is the best in twilight princess but I wish he could've spoken in the game and interacted more with midna. Link is kind hearted.
Link has to be my favourite character in the Zelda Franchise, especially Twilight Princess Link. He's so brave and loyal and he cares so much for the people around him. I loved how he went crazy when Colin was captured by King Bulblin, and he literally kicks everyone's butt in the game. He's also a bit shy and dorky, which makes him even more adorable. Even though we don't hear him speaking out loud, I do believe that this character has depth. Definitely my all time favourite video game character!
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!
I forgot how few characters are in this franchise. You know there aren't many when a horse is in the top 20... so Link by default. But he's also pretty awesome on his own.
She is amazing. Cute, adorable, understanding, caring. She and Link honestly should've been together. Maybe it wasn't meant to be, but she clearly loved him.
Best Zelda character ever.
It was sad to see Midna leave without expressing her obvious feelings for Link. She was clearly going to but instead changed her words from I love you to see you later. Midna is a very well developed character and I wish she didn't have to leave but she had to go back to her people, she had to go it it was clear once she asked link to come with her to the twilight realm. Overall, Midna is THE BEST zelda character ever.
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
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.
I love Zelda so much! Instead of lying around, waiting for a knight/Prince to save her, she does her part and fends for herself. She defends the ones she cares about and does her part as royalty.
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?
Have always loved Zelda. Her relationship with Link is the cutest ever! She's really kind and she can actually do stuff unlike Peach. She is wise and brave as well. There is a reason to why it's the legend of zelda and not the legend of link.
She needs to be up there ahead of Midna! Midna was rude to Link at the beginning of the game but got better after Zelda saved her life! And she is pretty. Prettier than Midna!
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 beforehand.. 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.
Able to have so much diversity game to game but still stick with that essence that truly makes him ganondorf.
A mean, green, grouchy villain great combination!
The ocarina of time ganon fight is cool.
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.
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!
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.
One of the best characters, memorable from Majoras Mask (also in ocarina of time)
He reminds everyone of his 'Alex De Large' characteristic and struggles between good and evil.
All three of the boss fights were just packed with action and the creativity was just out of this world. An interesting twist from the usual Ganondorf or Ganon. He is a creepy and mysterious character, and I loved fighting him!
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.
Girahim is by far the most charismatic villain from the Zelda franchise. and (spoiler alert) the game ends him perfectly by showing you that, despite his haughty attitude, he's just a pawn under a greater evil.
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.
Saria is by far my favorite character. Link would be just second on my book to be honest.
I like her, she reminds me of Gulley in Link between worlds.
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 needs to be in Smash!
The character development is off the charts. Even with out the depth to him, he would still be on my list because of how cool he is
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.
"You lay off my do right now, or I'll flatten you. Everyone knows I've got the slickest pompadour in town."
Everyone knows he's got the best pompadour in town...
Obviously the best set of links. He actually has personality. Plus none of the links were adult until ocarina of time, and now everybody expects every link to be an adult, and if he's not, he's a crappy link. If you asked me, this IS the classic link.
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...
I played Windwaker HD and loved it, not to mention it was my first Zelda.
She is by far the best version of Zelda. And I feel her and this version of Link would be so great as a couple.
She's the only Zelda with an actual personality.
The only Zelda who doesn't know she's Zelda.
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
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 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.
Medli is simply the best. I have a friend who's never played a Zelda game but is addicted to Medli.
I really really love Navi. I think that Link and Navi are cute, funny and remarkable couple.
Not every Zelda Fan always say that Navi is such annoying Zelda Character. But hey, I like Navi
Hey hey listen
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!
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 basicaly embodies everything Majora's Mask is loved for. So many questions come to our minds when we think of him.
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
A female Link who don't have any parts of the Triforce or sacred equipment.
Malon only appears in Ocarina of Time, but is a kind character. She meets link when they are both children, they meet again as young adults and link saves lon lon ranch. sadly malon never got her chance with link but was still very kind.
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.
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.
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.
Simply wonderful. Fantastic development, and impossible to ignore; Tingle has spawned many spinoff games and is truly great.
Tingle is a bit creepy, and I always hate it when he tries to steal my Rupees in four swords.
How the Hell did Tingle make it into this list?
I love little Tingly Tingle.
Should be a lot lot higher up in the list. HE's a great and very memorable character. I cannot believe he's not in the top 20, let alone the top 10! He's separate to the person who is behind his disguise and is his own persona, a sheikah boy. Very wise person and talented fighter. Sheik is the best.
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 just adore Shiek! I always get the goosebumps when he arrives... I feel that Shiek provides a better background to Zelda but honestly, He deserves his own character.
I love Sheik's theme in OOT. I don't know why, but it's captivating and I love Sheik.
God, I love this guy. Even though everyone else loves him, I can't help but love him too. He's just so charming. He's basically the Groose of BotW. He's a character that just had such a hilarious appeal. He's very positive and his design in general is just cool as Hell.
HE IS SO AWESOME! I have a friend that is literally in love with Prince Sidon. Should be higher on the list. In the made up Zelda game I'm making, I thought Sidon was so awesome I had to make him a little badass by giving him 2 pistols that convert into a submachine water shooting gun. Hands down best Zelda 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? "
Sidon is just epic, the most memorable thing about sidon is his smile when his jolts his arm up to his face. Epic.
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!
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!
She is the dreamy kind girl who helps Link. And she can sing!
Best version of link
Don't know much about her but she loves butterflies and swallowtails and such.
She's the sweet healer of the group. She had the easiest time piloting her Divine Beast, and her Age of Calamity moveset is like, the best in the game.
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.
A kind soul. She, as well as many other women in the zelda series was in love with link.
The thing on the switch that made me closest to becoming a furry.
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
Epona is a loyal horse.
