I didn’t even know that this version of Link has his own page. Well then, I guess it’s proposal time.

What’s the Work?

The Legend of Zelda is a video game series centering on an elf warrior named Link, who fights to protect the kingdom of Hyrule from the evil king Ganon (or Ganondorf, depending on the game), who seeks to kidnap Princess Zelda and obtain the three pieces of the Triforce.

Who Is He/What Has He Done?

Young Link, also known as the Hero of Time, is the incarnation of Link from Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask (he also had a small appearance in Twilight Princess).

Sorry if these plot descriptions are a little barebones, but anyone who's played these games knows that they're pretty long, and I don't wanna have to go through every single plot point.

In Ocarina of Time, Link was sent on a quest to go help Princess Zelda stop Ganondorf from invading the Sacred Realm, stealing the Triforce, and taking over Hyrule (a lot happened in this game). After a long journey of time travel, dungeon-delving, and helping random people along the way, a now grown-up Link manages to defeat Ganondorf and seal him in a realm of evil. Zelda then sent him back in time, returning him to his youthful state.

In Majora's Mask, Link found himself in Termina, an alternate world set to be destroyed in 3 days by a very angry-looking falling moon. Link set out to stop this, and along the way was antagonized by the Skull Kid, a mischievous imp controlled by a powerful artifact known as Majora's Mask. And so, after another long journey of time travel, dungeon-delving, and helping random people along the way (I’m starting to see a trend here), Link successfully defeated Majora's Mask and stopped Termina from being destroyed.

In Twilight Princess, Young Link makes an appearance as the Hero's Spirit. He taught his successor, the Hero of Twilight, seven sword techniques known as the Hidden Skills.

Corrupting Factors

None that I can think of.

Admirable Standard

All versions of Link are admirable in their own ways, but this one still stands out. He was the first in the series' timeline to fight Ganon and save Hyrule from his tyranny (not counting the Fallen Hero timeline). Plus, he saved another world from being straight up destroyed. As a little cherry on top, he carried on being a hero even after his death by teaching the Hero of Twilight.

Final Verdict

Basically, all versions of Link have technically already been approved, so this one should be included as well.
