ZD Top 5 – Comedic Relief Characters

line
For this week’s ZD Top 5, we asked staff members an open-ended question: Who are your Top 5 comic relief characters in the Zelda series? These characters could either be central to the main plot of the game (spoiler, Link himself was chosen in one case!) or have no apparent relevance to the main plot (for instance, Tingle). What resulted from the posed question was a collection of characters and moments that provided levity and occasional laugh-out-loud humor in otherwise serious quests to save the world.

 
Which characters got you laughing? Which were most memorable for the humor they brought to the games? Add your own voices in the comments.
