Zelda Dungeon Talks: Which Link Was The Most Heroic?

Hey all and welcome to this week’s edition of Zelda Dungeon Talks! Throughout the numerous games in The Legend of Zelda series, we have seen many, many different Link’s. All carrying the spirit of the hero, all named Link. With so many Link’s to choose from, at least one of them has to stand out from the rest. The question we want to find the answer to is which Link is the most heroic. Which Link has the best qualities of a hero that we have seen so far? When I first saw this question the Link from Skyward Sword instantly popped into my mind. He didn’t do it because there was a princess that needed desperate help and in the beginning he didn’t know that there was a demon lord lurking on the surface. No, his motives were always to rescue his friend Zelda. This is just my opinion though, it’s time to find out what you guys think!

In this week’s edition of Zelda Dungeon Talks, various staff members will tell us which Link the believed was the most heroic. Feel free to leave your opinion in the comments below. Read more…

In the video three heroes are shown working together to do lots of damage to the boss, with one of them having fireballs.

Gossip Stone: Should Link Be Made to Deal with a Real, Impactful Instance of Death?

mikausgrave-1The day Link lost his uncle in Hyrule Castle’s sewers in A Link to the Past all those years ago, people knew that The Legend of Zelda would not always be simply about fighting monsters and saving a princess. It is often about losing something that truly matters to you personally, and fighting to make sure that you can get it back. This level of personal motivation mostly involves Link losing someone he cares about to the evil attacking Hyrule, but is it not odd that no one close to him ever actually dies? Not to sound harsh towards Link or his loved ones, but death is a common and effective plot driver in giving people a reason to venture out as Link has. Will someone he knows and loves die in the future? Should they, and what can we expect to come of it based on past games?

Join the discussion after the jump! (Warning: potentially upsetting themes for those sensitive about the topic of death.) Read more…
