Link is the Hero is the of Hyrule and possesses the Triforce of Courage. He is often reincarnated in various timelines along with Zelda and Ganon and will awaken when a great evil arises. Armed with the Master Sword and other magical items, he is the shield that protects Hyrule and rids it of evil.

Link had a variety of weapons and tools he can use to fight against evil including his trusty shield and Master Sword. Somehow, he carries various items such as boomerangs, bows and arrows, bombs, and more. This makes him a bit weighed down - especially in the air.

Classic Mode: A Quest to Seal the Darkness
All of Link’s opponents are evil or those with any affinity for darkness.

Role in World of Light
Link tried his best to fight against the beams of light that were unleashed upon the fighters but even the Master Sword proved futile.

He is revived by Mario and Kirby and aids them in searching for Luigi and Fox. Link’s Arc revolves him searching the Castle area for Zelda but ends up reviving Medusa who agrees to air him for a Price. He ends up reluctantly aiding Demise who began rounding up Spirits as well as Medusa to fight for him. Link fights them both along with Pit and manages to sway them to their side. He is later seen in the final battle.
