Character Description

Not much is known about Link's character or personality. What is known about him is that, being the Hero of Hyrule, he is a polite young man and very "humble". He is a very skillfull swordsman and a master of various weaponry.

Link's appearance has changed from that of the previous games. Link's design is based on his appearance from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.


Link is a character that has received quite an upgrade from the previous SSB games. He has avarage speed. Link's tilts are fast and powerful, as well as his Smash Attacks, which deal medium damage and have high knockback. His Special Moves have also been upgraded. His bow is very fast when charging but does not deal much damage. However, it is ideal for Target Smashing. His Gale Boomerang, which also deals damage, can drag opponents near him, and thus easily attack them. His Spin Attack is one of his most powerful attacks and his most powerful Special Moves. It deals a lot of damage and has excellent knockback. His down Special, the Bomb, deals the same damage as it did in SSBB but has greater knockback, making it a very useful technique.

However, one of Link's major drawbacks is his recovery. making him easily to be KO'ed. He has short jumping. His stamina is avarage and can withstand to powerful attacks more easily than he did in SSBB. All in all, Link has been upgraded in terms of attack knockback and damage.
