Welcome to the Cave of Trials. The premise is simple: Every week, two characters from The Legend of Zelda series will duke it out for the Zelda Informer Championship. Whoever has more votes at the end of the week, wins. This is strictly a popularity contest, not who you think would win in a fight; so vote for who you like better! The winner will then go on next week to defend the title against a new challenger, as decided by you guys! That’s right, leave a name in the comments of who you want to see step up next and the character with the most votes will get their chance to dethrone the champion next week! Be warned though – a character only has one shot, so choose wisely. If a champion is successful in defending their title for six weeks in a row, that champion will be retired and the title declared vacant!
Welcome back to the Cave.
After putting up a valiant effort, and even after looking quite dangerous in the first couple hours of the poll, the King of Red Lions succumbed to the overwhelming popularity of the Twilight Princess, Midna. After dispatching Nabooru and The King of Red Lions so easily, it’s become quite obvious that Midna needs stiffer competition.
Enter Dark Link.
The twisted shadow version of Hyrule’s Hero first appeared to antagonize Link back in Zelda II on the NES, and makes his return to Cave of Trials to fight shadow with shadow. This dark and sinister mirror image of Link has captured the imaginations of fans everywhere from the moment he debuted. Will it be enough to knock off the Champion and take her title? There’s only one way to find out! Let’s do this!
