This will need to be updated when The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is released, but until then it’s pretty darn accurate.

    Or there are a few extra copies of one or two Links, depending on how you look at it.

    ALttP, Link's Awakening and the Oracle games share a Link, just like Zelda 1 and 2 do.

      Yes and no. In the game, his hair was pinkish, but if you looked at him in the manual he had his usual light brown hair. I’m really not sure what happened there, to be honest.

      They made his hair pink so it wouldn’t be the same color as the trim on his hat. Why they just didn’t forgo the hat trim and leave his hair blonde is beyond me.

    Where is Wand of Gamelon Link? Is he too busy eating Octoroks?

    The Link from Link's Awakening is the same Link as the one from A Link To The Past. Remember, a few of the Zelda games do actually have sequels.

    They probably drew this before that game was announced.

    Like this post if you had the ending theme of Durarara playing through your head while looking at this pic-

    Oh wait there’s no “likes” mechanism for comments here is there? That’s probably for the best.

    He has been allowed to fall and is below the frame of the picture. He is there though, falling to his death.

    I almost wanted to complain that they forgot the Oracle of Ages Link, but then I remembered he’s the same on as the Oracle of Seasons Link.
