Monday Comic Corner: Triforce of Courage

DaveyDecember 10th, 2012 by Davey

Today is a very special day because on this Monday we observe the inauguration of a new Zelda Dungeon feature – Monday Comic Corner! (Especially cheesy, I know. It was Tingle’s idea.) As the title would suggest, this weekly feature will show off some of the comics inspired by the Zelda series. To me, comics are wonderful because they incorporate artwork, text, and a bit of something silly all in one. Zelda comics are particularly special because often they give the community’s chatter a single voice through the Zelda characters. And this is certainly the only time we get to hear Link’s opinions.

Hit the jump for our first feature -“Triforce of Courage”!

We start out with a recent comic from Corpse Run Comics. In six short panels, an interesting perspective is posed of how many of Link’s missions start, especially in Twilight Princess. As the author states in his comments, it seems that Link gets himself in a lot of situations he didn’t even intend. Though it always Link is the generous, courageous young hero, he really should speak up sometimes so we aren’t left to wonder. Some All of his missions are incredibly dangerous, he must have some “what have I gotten myself into” thoughts!

In fact, has Link ever started his adventures by his own will? Just because he’s the most able doesn’t mean he always enjoys his escapades. Either way, we’re all fortunate that Link has never rejected a mission. How would that be if he just decided not to save Princess Zelda? “Let Ganondorf take over. I’m too tired.” The Legend of Zelda: The Regime of Ganondorf probably wouldn’t be an uplifting tale.

Of course, to see more of these comics, head on over to their website. Though not all of Corpse Run’s comics are Zelda inspired, there are plenty that feature our tunic-wearing friend, and you can bet that some of our future features will be from Corpse Run.

    Your right about twilight princess, a escape and rescue mission turns into you saving the world. Don,t let me get started on The Minish Cap

    • Nico

      Navi: Link, the Great Deku Tree wants to talk to you! He needs you to kill a spider inside his body.
      Link: *Sigh* Well, at least I just have to kill a spider. I’ll do it quick and then I’ll take a good nap.

      Almost every Zelda game starts out small and ends up becoming some great big adventure.

        Except for the original; no backstory whatsoever in that.
        Except for in the title screen, but you still have no idea what you’re doing. All you know is that some… Guy… If that’s what it is, kidnapped Zelda.

        • guest

          nah, it’s some pig…waiiit a sec…..

      Are you joking! Wind Waker was the biggest example of this!

      • Gaseous Snake

        Tetra: Okay Link, you saved your sister, you can go now.

        Link: (starts walking away)

        Tetra: One quick thing… save the world will ya?

      And where escort missions are drawn-out for too long.

    Poor Linky-Poo…

  • firecrb

    link looks like he’ll have fun

  • The Dark Lord Demise

    YOU DARE COME INTO MY LAIR WITH HATE, YOU MUST DIE.

    • Demon King Ratatosk

      YOU SHALL NOT HARM ANYONE, DEMISE! I WAS THE ONE WHO ENTERED! AND I AM MORE POWERFUL THAN YOU!

      • Divine Demon Ratatosk

        sorry forgot to log in for that post.

      • Demise

        Yes, but there are two of us. You don’t stand a chance.

        • Divine Demon Ratatosk

          Actually Its you who doesn’t stand a chance as I embody space, thus, can negate any of your attacks. You don’t believe me, Click on my name. and the post you responded to was me.

          • Demise

            Sorry for the late reply. I was busy. Anyway, “Ratatosk” is a very silly name, and also we two are the Demon Kings, Lords and sources of all evil; also, together we can easily get the triforce, and then we shall be unbeatable.

            PS: Even if you were more powerful than Demise, to beat us both you’d need to be twice more powerful; plus it doesn’t say in your description that you embody space, and if you do, then it’s just as fair for me to say that since I’m (sorry, we’re) the incarnation(s) of Hate, we can use Hate to harm you (Hate is not material, and so mastery of space will not avail you, flame of Udun! :P).

          • Divine Demon Ratatosk

            Hate stands no chance against Space cause Space also isn’t material and is Stronger. Plus I didn’t say mastery, I said embody which means that you pathetic attack is useless. Also the Triforce Is missing two Pieces, each is half of the center. And I just forgot to place that tid-bit of info into my description.(FYI ‘incarnation’ and ‘embody’ mean basically the same thing. And your hate will not save you,either of you. SPACIAL SLASH!)

          • Demise

            FYI Space IS material. Hate is a feeling, and feelings aren’t dependent or connected to Space in any way. Anyway only the Master Sword (or it’s equivalents, e.g. Dark Master Sword) can harm us, which you don’t posess, so SPACIAL SLASH NEGATED. HATE ATTACK!!!

          • Divine Demon Ratatosk

            Space is not material because it has no form you can touch, other than myself of course. And I possess the Sword of Dimentions, a sword was forged at the same time as the Goddess Sword (Then it was turned into the Master Sword), that is stronger than the Master Sword (Which I helped to create by forging the metal its made of) beacuse it could not be altered by the first sages, unlike the Master Sword, which was altered to act as the key to the Sacred Realm. (P.S. You cant win even with every version of Demise to ever exist put together cause it still comes down to Space vs. Hate in which Hate always loses due to it being nothing but an emotion, something you cannot touch, exept you of course. so in retrospect, we both give Immaterial things Material form. So, I still win.(And Material means something that you can physically touch. it doesn’t mean that only emotions are immaterial.)

          • Demise

            OK, Draw. But by definition I am the most powerful evil being ever, however, since we can go on aguin forever, it’s a draw. :P

          • Divine Demon Ratatosk

            And what about killing Tehxbox?
            My sister really wants him dead for his insult.

          • Demise

            Do you mean you want my help? Surely one so strong and powerful, the incarnation of Space, can deal with him alone. :P

            If not, then what about him?

          • Divine Demon Ratatosk

            Hylia want’s us to get along somewhat long enought to kill him. Its not that I want your help. so Don’t get the wrong Idea.

          • Divine Demon Ratatosk

            How about we just agree to a Draw Cause this fight is getting us no where. That and Hylia is currently telling me to Kill Tehxbox for insulting her. We both know what happened when You and her fought, you ended up sealed and then when you are finally revived your killed by her chosen hero guided by the spirit of the Master Sword, And I really do not feel like being sealed for a millenia. So what say we work together JUST this once and kill a Zeldaverce Hater? (Zeldaverce is what some LoZ fans call our world. I’ve seen it somewhere in the internet, but I don’t Remember where.)

  • Mister

    I concur, my good man. I, too, find it stimulating in continuously posting negative comments about a series on a website dedicated to such a series. Such as: The Legend of Zelda is of a lower quality than Halo, or The Legend of Zelda is simply not good at all. Hmm, yes. Quite. Excuse me I must clean my monocle.

  • Sebastian

    in Skyward Sword, Link gets into the surface because he wanted to save Zelda, because he cared about her.

    • Veronica Wheeler

      then he ends up fighting the imprissoned like 5 times. then his true form at the end to save all of humanity!! (and what ever else is living there)

      • Fi

        3 times actually

        • mjennaro

          2 times to many

  • ZeldaTeacher

    I had never thought of things that way…he never does get a chance to “voice” his opinions. I am looking forward to seeing different comics every week!

    • Ninty

      Yeah. We have the same main objective in each game for the most part (become hero, save world). I’ve barely seen Link as a character other than the fact that we don’t have a lot of choice to do whatever we want in Zelda games. I mean, what happens if we decide not to do side quests? It’s not that Link doesn’t care about the citizens, but that the gamer does or doesn’t.

  • ……….

    And this is why Link must speak.

  • Tehlul

    No no no your doing it wrong, you do it like this;
    Lolz Teh Halolz goterz teh bhetter graffix tin teh Zhelda lolz

  • baileygirl99

    Haha. This is funny! I like how the guy was about to push Link right off the edge of whatever they were standing on :-). I like Corpse run.

    • Midna’s Sister

      Corpse run brings hilarity to simple moments in the Legend of Zelda.

  • http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005S0W0MS/?tag=signalpublis-20 Thareous

    Halo is an awesome First Person Shooter.

    Zelda is an awesome Action/Adventure series.

    They both balance out, respectively. =)

    • Veronica Wheeler

      Indeed. Very respectful for different reasons. Like donuts and cake. neither of which are better than the other. But i love them both for different reasons.

      • TwilightMirror11

        Old fashioned glazed donuts would kick cakes offensive word for waste disposal!

        • Veronica Wheeler

          WORD

  • Waker of Winds

    I think I can see why Link doesn’t say anything…………

  • Affliliant

    Perhaps Miyamoto purposefully didn’t give him a voice because he knew that this would happen…

  • itsameluigi1290

    It’s a sequel to that other Corpse Run comic!

    O/

  • http://www.zeldadungeon.net/ DA LAWLZ >:3

    i absolutely love zelda comics!! a lot of them are kind of the same but they are all so funnny!

  • http://www.zeldadungeon.net/ DA LAWLZ >:3

    Silly Tehxbox! Trolling is for noobs!

    • Speedsk8

      It gets worse when you realize he’s been doing this for months now

      • Mikau94

        Even longer than that sadly. If it the same “tehxbox” that has trolled here for quite a while, he has been here since 2011 at least.

        • itsameluigi1290

          Honestly, I don’t care that he/she trolls. I say, WE IGNORE HIM/HER!

          *Says the guy who just replied to tehxbox*

      • Tehxbox

        Years, actually.

        • Speedsk8

          Wait…seriously? why?

        • alexlgamer

          hold the phone! you didn’t use a z at the end of every single word…it feels awkward…

  • http://medlismessages.blogspot.com/ Heroine of Time

    Teh Xbox! Ah, I remember you. How’ve you been? It’s been a while! Still trolling as usual, I see…

    • TwilightMirror11

      That’s not trolling, that’s jackassery.

    • <3<3<3

      I love you so much! Please marry me! You are my long-held crush and girl of my dreams and I am your secret admirer!!! Please, I love you. I NEED you.

  • Pokalink

    OH MY GOSH I RECOGNIZE THAT TROLL!!!

  • Anonymous

    you should look up vgcats.com. they’ve got a lot of zelda comics

  • itsameluigi1290

    You’re speaking some sort of alien language, speak english.

    • TwilightMirror11

      Nah, I think he’s just mashing the side of his head on the keyboard over and over.

  • LinkInMyHead

    Hahahahahahaha XD That’s my reaction to how the games end up, you just sit there like… And this happened how!? Where is my decline button! I WANT TO GO FISHING!

    • Midna’s Sister

      Sooo true!

  • TwilightMirror11

    Who the hell liked that post???

  • TwilightMirror11

    Ok, now you’re just disliking all the comments on this whole post. WHAT THE HELL? Besides, if you think you are some revolutionary genius, it’s been done before on this website, i would show you but the comment was deleted.

  • Naga

    geez-twilight princess, where to start…?

    Midna: Link, im gonna get you outta the prison, just do what i say and-
    Link: no, i wanna stay here cause then it actually wont be my fault for once if the world implodes or something.

  • Anonymous

    Yikes. I was thinking that maybe Link was like Sora from Kingdom Hearts; he accepted all the missions he was given and then some, and volunteered for even more. Seriously, how often do either of them say no (and stick to the choice)?
    Besides, Link is us, and there are EXTREMELY few reasons we wouldn’t help out the Hylian race. The only reason I can think of: they added the senses of smell and touch (not to the point of pain or injury) to a game with Toilet Hand, and we have to shake…

  • vaati’s wrath
  • zeldagirl123

    I love it! so awesome! pants… pants…. whiseing. awesomeeeeeeeee…. GEEZ AND CRAPPERS! BUT WITH MORE ANIME, IT WOULD BE…. A-W-E-S-O-M-E!

  • LLAMAS!!!

    actually, instead of making him talk, they just should’ve put link’s face when he saw that amoghoma wasn’t defeated ):3
    P.S. I’M BACK BABY!!!!!!!!!!!
