Link is the hero of Hyrule who is a confirmed veteran for Super Smash Bros. Universal Struggle, and is one of two confirmed veterans from the Legend of Zelda series, alongside Zelda. His appearance has been updated to match his appearance in Hyrule Warriors, but this only adds several minor changes to his gameplay. Like Mario, not much has changed since Link's last Smash iteration.


Special Moves

  • Neutral Special: Hero's Bow - Link fires an arrow from his signature bow. Like in previous games, this can be charged to make the arrow fly faster, go farther, and deal more damage. (4%-12% damage depending on charge)
  • Side Special: Gale Boomerang - Link throws out a boomerang which creates a medium tornado that damages opponents on send out, but not on return. (7% damage on closer opponents and 5% damage on opponents in the middle of this move's range)
  • Up Special: Spin Attack -
  • Down Special: Bomb -
  • Final Smash: Triforce Slash - Link homes in on the nearest opponent and then begins slashing away at them before launching them. (1% damage per strike and 30% damage for the finishing blow).
