Who do you think is strongest? This video is obviously just my opinion, based on playing the games! Edit: the red ring in Zelda 1 works like the red mail from ALTTP, it doesn't double your damage! My bad :P Edit 2: I obviously discounted ALTTP and Skyward Sword Links having the full Triforce! That's no fun for anyone else :P & Wolf Link should've got a mention for senses and agility, but any other Link would cut him up pretty quickly. Hero of Twilight is still a tank tho

@Andric376 Yes. He did, which, in my opinion, boosts the argument that he is one of, if not the, strongest Links.

Didn't ALTTP Ganon have the full triforce meaning Link didn't have the triforce?

Ok so i couldnt comment on zeltiks comment so ill just say it here i think the new hero of hyrule is the best for the simple fact that he has the best game gimmick merging into walls is the best thing to ever come out of a zelda game besides if hes fighting thats an insanely op tool as you can just turn invincible also his gold master sword and super sword spin do way too much damage to not win people over

Alright, before I watch this I have one question... Does he allow botw link to eat in the middle of a battle
J3diSt3v3 [J3]
J3diSt3v3 [J3] Dag siden
Hmmm. So I won't say botw link is the strongest, because he most likely can't compete with time freezing and invincibility powers. However, it seems that he can get a feirce deity set which, though probably not as good as Majora's mask, does increase his attack. Ofc I'm not sure what can count for canon but if we are counting the feirce deity set (gained through scanning amibos), then I want to propose one of the dlc weapons. Assuming botw link is in a one on one (due to charges) link has a one hit kill melee weapon. However he only has one heart so it would be a battle to who would gain the first hit. Botw is probably not the strongest, but including dlc, amibos, age of calamity, and whatever may await us in breath of the wild 2, this link could probably place top 5 easily (honestly probably 4th or 3rd.)
J3diSt3v3 [J3]
J3diSt3v3 [J3] Dag siden
So, I'm not sure what is canon when it comes to age of calamity but it definitely adds something to his power. I mean, he parry's a FALLING ROCK, is able to hold his own, albeit for a limited time, against all 4 upgraded blights alone, and before that shadows of the champions. Once I finish watching I probably have one last thing to say, I just need to see why the fierce deity mask is considered so strong

Hero of Legend, or maybe Hero of Time. Legend considering he has 2 magic canes, 3 magic medallions, a magic cape, a magic hammer, magic powder, 13 magic rings (of which he can use 5), the Master Sword, Mirror shield, Lantern, Boomerang, Red/Blue Mail, Pegasus Boots, Titan's Mitt, Zora's Flippers, Bow and Arrows, Hookshot, Bombs, Fire/Ice Rod, Shovel, and Flute. Time mainly because of the masks, but also he has the Master Sword, Hylian Shield, Lens of Truth, Bombs, Deku Nuts/Stick, The Goddess Spells (Din's Fire, Farore's Wind, Nayru's Love), Bombchu, Boomerang, Slingshot, Hookshot, Mask of Truth, I'm getting bored of this.

link from wild is best he got through my slap in the back without a sheild okay out of the jokes botw link is one of the best link bcause he has the power of champions and sheikah which makes him insanely powerful and he as a little boy bested adults, believe me or not thunderblight was hard but link defeated it he had every ally turned up against him, you think he got it back by some fairy, no! This link did not have a single companion but bested every beast, link was so resistance that even after a laser from a guardian did not make him fall, and the master sword was badly damaged then what he needed to go thru, link mastered every kind of weapon, his experience was added after 100 years more....this hyrule was more dangerous, like yiga members appearing every moment after Master Kohga is defeated, he has a good amount of power a sheild can not parry automatically but link parries a guardian, nearly everything. This link according to others is a little silent and emotionless thats it
MooseReady 3 dager siden
Personally I think the hero of the wild should be higher, he’s able to use 5 different arrow types at his disposal, can just casually stop time and eat to regenerate health, slow time mid air to aim arrows, slow time again to rapidly attack, and not to mention his infinite arsenal of bows shields and swords, along with the stamina to climb entire mountains, and lastly the health to survive whole laser beams from literal robots, and survive fire balls from the strongest enemy in the game, along with the shieka slate powers, infinite bombs at his disposal, the ability to literally stop enemies in time, turn water to ice in an instant, summon a motor bike, which by the way you don’t see in other games don’t you? And to finish it off, he killed 4 mini ganons, gained the ability of 4 legendary champions, and has arrows that can literally suck enemies into black holes

Don't forget the Oracle Link can straight up punch rocks and demolish them, the same ones needed bombs to blow up. Also is easy to get at the beginning with RNG manip. Oracle link by far largest arsenal, all the rings. Also he can punch Gannon to death. ALso the 3 animal companions, and able to manipulate time whenever. You really just ignored the fact about manipulating the environment to any season and a different time line that affects the future... The main items in the oracle games.

Huh, I just realised that even in the official art for the BotW Link (shown on his stat page in this vid), he's drawing the arrow on his bow wrong, with the palm facing outward. So it wasn't just a careless mistake with his in-game model; that was how he was designed to draw an arrow. It was still probably done unintentionally, without knowledge of proper form by whoever made this decision, but still interesting.

Hero of time only got second, while he can literally become a god, plus defeat majora, which majora can rip a soul from it's body(the deku kid), and stop THE MOOOOOOON from destroying everything, and he has the ocerina of time which can literally turn back time and do so much more, and yes this is basically just a complaint on how he only got second, also the hero of the wild should be higher up, because he has the one hit obliterator, ancient stuff, plus he's over 100 years old

@SCREAMING yes but I think that the ocerina is actually secretly the most powerful iteam in all of legend of zelda. Yes more powerful than the fierce deity mask. Think about it, if it can summon storms, turn time, and activate magical dungeon mechanics, and heal people's souls. This is still only like 10-15ish songs. There could be even more powerful songs out there for the ocerina.

Hero of time is by far the most powerful the ocarina of time alone can make it rain change the sun and move time add in he has the full power of the master sword which most others don't like in BOTW without the DLC and to top it off the fierce deity mask it's not even a contest.

Personally I think it’s between botw and ww. I’d like to this video redone with Age of Calamity taken into account. It really shows off the sheer power of that link. Also I think some of the more complex gameplay of botw’s link should be considered as well. I mean he’s been in countless battles and certainly is the most experienced in my opinion. Of course I would consider myself biased toward him as he is my favourite link so far. If you have a rebuttal or something I’m not seeing I’d love to hear your reply!!

We need to give botw link more credit. He has urbosa’s fury which does 150 base damage and can be used 3 times before recharging, he also has mipha’s grace which revives him after dying and gives him 5 additional hearts, he can also use parries to fully deflect any projectile or ranged attack and he has been zelda’s appointed knight and has been on a journey through hyrule twice, with age of calamity and breath of the wild. He also can cook food that can raise his attack by 50% and he can also make food that recovers his health completely with additional hearts, he also can make stealth food for sneak attacks and speed food that makes him 50% faster, and he has bullet time which makes him slow down time enough for multiple (possibly ancient) arrows to be shot, not to mention in normal mode he has one shot protection from bullet time which makes any fatal move not kill him and instead leaves him with 1/4 of a heart left, enough time to instantly reheal and continue fighting. Also if he does a sneak attack he will always one shot an opponent. He can also get perfect dodges which slow down time and allows link to get multiple attacks in. He also is very physically fit, being able to wield daruk’s boulder breaker and a multitude of other heavy weapons. He also has infinite bombs with the sheikah slate, and he can also use the master sword’s beam attack at full health. He also has the awakened master sword which is always at 60 base damage. Also, did I mention he can jump which makes him more agile than some of the other links. Needless to say I think botw link should be ranked higher on the list.

Zetlink I think that the Mm link is the strongest in strenth, item sword power because he weilds the reuse deity mask witch is the most powerful sword in the legend of zelda series. The deity can woop every single link in just a fist fight. Just young link weilds the fairy sword witch is the 2nd most powerful sword ever the coming 3rd the builder sword and after that comes the razor sword. I also love your videos they are awesome I usually watch them during class in my spare time.
