About

Link is the main protagonist and player character from the Nintendo video game series, The Legend of Zelda. Due to his prominence within the series and in video game culture as a whole, he has been the subject of a number of fan creations, including fan art and other such parodies

Origin

Link first appeared within the 1986 Nintendo Entertainment System title, The Legend of Zelda, created by Shigeru Miyamoto. Despite the option for players to choose their own name for the character, the character became more well known by his default and promotional name, Link, and became famous for his signature Green tunic. Within the game, Link is tasked with saving a captured Princess Zelda from the evil Ganon, as well as saving all of the land of Hyrule in the process. Since then, an incarnation of Link has been the main playable character for all the main series Zelda games, as well as starring in a number of spin offs and other franchises, most notably the Super Smash Bros. Crossover series.
