Monday Comic Corner – Link is an Elf

DaveyDecember 24th, 2012 by Davey

Because today is Christmas Eve, or even Christmas already in some places, we have a holiday themed Zelda comic for you! Straight from deviantART is a short bit about Zelda forcing some of the other characters to align with the holiday spirit.

Of course whenever Link gets a voice he usually expresses his latent “Grumble, Grumble” thoughts, whether it be because of the stress of his adventures or another cause, this comic is no exception. This time, Link and company have dressed up as common Christmas characters. Elf-Link is most certainly appropriate, but what about the other characters?

Hit the jump to see the comic!

I can’t tell whether the combination of Linebeck, Tael, and Ganondorf make this last panel so funny, or just the way Ganondorf is drawn made me laugh, but this is definitely a hilarious Zelda take on this Christmas tradition. I always find comics amusing when a villain isn’t treated like the bad guy. The character that we’re all taught is a bad guy suddenly has real feelings.

Overall, a short and funny Christmas comic by ~tie-dye-flag on deviantART. He or she has drawn some other Zelda related things, so you can check out ~tye-dye-flag’s deviantART gallery here if you’re curious.

      I think the goal was to have her look like a plum tho >.> you know, sugarPLUM fairy?

      • Mr. Resetti

        Tael’s a guy, maybe the fairy here is meant to be Navi or Tatl – it’s not really clear but hey SOOO CUTE!

  • littlemissgleek

    Oh god it’s evil santa! hahaha and gotta love Linebeck the red nosed reindeer :D

  • firecrb

    Santa is not stupid but ganon santa is :P

  • Zecon25

    I would have bet large sums of money that Darunia would have been Santa Claus… Ganon is equally impressive.

  • Waker of Winds

    Navi so deserved that

    • Hero of Time

      So, so true…

    • Turtles!

      It wasn’t Navi; it was Tael.

      • Waker of Winds

        you know wgat im going to look kindly on tael he at least gave good advice instead of navi yelling hey look listen and tatl saying your dumb stupid and lame

  • itsameluigi1290

    Eh, not the funniest, but it is cute.

  • Tehlul

    Haha Linebeck.
    We never see him enough

  • Tehlul

    I don’t believe Ganons story for a second.
    I think he’s trying to steal the Triforce and ruin Christmas.

    • Norm

      I feel a Christmas TV special coming on…

  • Norm

    Linebeck doesn’t look half bad, to be honest.

  • Me

    Uhhh… not funny at all.

  • Fierce.Deity

    Funny! I love the art style! Is that Navi, Tael, or Tatl that’s a sugar plume fairy?

  • KirikoKid225

    Tael as a Sugar Plum Fairy was cute. o.O Everything else was just awkward…

    Twas the night before Christmas and all through Hyrule
    Not a monster was stirring, not even a ghoul
    The stockings were were hung at Death Mountain with care
    In hopes that the Goddesses soon would be there
    Zelda and Link nestled snug in their beds
    While visions of Deku Scrubs danced in their heads
    And the King in his ‘kerchief and Ganon in his cap
    Had settled their brains for a long winter’s nap
    When outside the castle there arose such a clatter
    Link sprang from his bed to see what was the matter
    Away to the window he rolled like a flash
    Tore open the shutters, and threw up the sash
    The angry-face moon on the breast of new fallen snow
    Gave luster of mid-day to objects below
    When what to my wondering eyes almost did sing
    But a miniature sleigh and eight tiny loftwings
    With a little old driver so lively and wise
    Link knew it a moment that it was Demise
    More rapid than eagles his coursers they came
    and he whistled and shouted and called them by name
    Now, Dasher, now Dancer, Now Prancer and Vixen
    On Comet and Cupid, Din, Farore and Blixen
    To the top of the the drawbridge, to the top of the wall
    Now fly away fly away fly away all!
    As dry leaves before the wild hurricane fly
    When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky
    So up to the castle-top the loftwings they flew
    With a sleigh full of toys and Old Demise too
    And then in a twinkling Link heard on the roof
    the prancing and pawing of each little hoof
    As Link drew in his head and was turning around
    Down the chimney came Old Demise with a bound
    He was dressed all in flame from his head to his foot
    And his his was all tarnished with ashes and soot
    A bundle of toys was flung on his back
    And he looked like an adventurer just opening his pack
    His eyes- how they twinkled his dimples how merry
    His cheeks were like roses his nose like a cherry
    His mouth full of fangs drawn up like a bow
    And the beard on his chin was white as the snow
    The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth
    And the smoke encircled his head like wreath
    He had a broad face and a little round belly
    That shook when he roared, like a bowl full of jelly
    He was chubby and plump, like a demonic elf
    And Link laughed when he saw him in spite of himself
    A wink of his eye and a twist of his head
    Soon gave Link to know that he had much to dread
    He spoke not a word but went straight to his work
    And filled up the stockings then turned with a jerk
    And laying his finger aside of his nose
    And giving a nod up the chimney he rose
    He sprung to his sleigh to his birds gave a whistle
    and away they flew like the down of a thistle
    But Link heard him exclaim ere he drove out of sight
    Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

    “The character that we’re all taught is a bad guy suddenly has real
    feelings.” lol I think villains still have feelings, they’re just selfish to the extreme, at least in Ganon’s case.

  • Waker of Winds
