They say that the tools make the man and in the Zelda series, that can certainly hold true for our green-clad hero. From hookshots to bows and magical arrows, our intrepid Link always has something for the job. You know, besides just swinging his sword at anything that moves.

Over the course of Zelda’s 30+ years of history, we’ve seen both the practical and the…not so useful items. Granted, we’re also talking about quite a bit of fantasy here, so sometimes we have to take these items with a grain of salt and more than a little frustration. Some of these tools however, could be pretty darn useful in the real world, such as hover boots or simple gauntlets that magnify your strength well over human limits. Let’s be honest, how cool would it be to see construction workers carrying giant pillars to create skyscrapers with just by wearing a pair of golden gauntlets?

So what say you? If you could have any tool from the Zelda series (no, not the Triforce, you cheaters), which would you choose? Let us know in the comments below!
