Linkle is a female version of the character Link from the Nintendo video game franchise The Legend of Zelda that will be introduced as a playable character in the upcoming Nintendo 3DS game Hyrule Warriors Legends set for release in March 2016.


In August 2014, an art book supplement for the game Hyrule Warriors was released, which featured a female version of Link named "Linkle" (リンクル or "Rinkuru" in Japanese). Following its release, a photograph of the Linkle illustration was widely circulated online.
