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.

It's my favorite

2 Twilight Princess/SSBB Link

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.

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.

3 Wind Waker Link/Toon Link

Wind Waker Link is the best because he did everything just to save his little sister Arryl, but he also manages to help others, such as the Deku Tree, Tetra/Zelda, Medli, Prince Komali, and other characters. In addition, Toon Link is also the most expressive of all Links, and I like the fact that he has somewhat of a personality and even says "yay" or "come on".

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

Toon link is best link

4 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.

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

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.

6 The Legend of Zelda Link
7 Oracle of Ages/Seasons Link
8 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

9 Hyrule Warriors Link
10 TV Series Link

Well excuse me princess.

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!

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 Dark Link

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

14 Deku Link
15 Zora Link
16 Goron Link
17 Wolf Link

Link as a wolf. So cool.
