Link breath of the wild render by jrrenders-dad872p
When I finally got around to asking why he's so quiet all the time, I could tell it was difficult for him to say. But he did. With so much at stake, and so many eyes upon him, he feels it necessary to stay strong and to silently bear any burden.
~ Zelda’s diary


The main protagonist of Breath of the Wild. 100 years ago, Link, Zelda and the four Champions set out to defeat Calamity Ganon using four Divine Beasts. The Champions were all killed, and Link critically injured. Link is placed into stasis, and rests for 100 years. He wakes up with amnesia, and meets an old man who tells him about what happened to Hyrule since Link has been asleep. Link then sets off on a quest to both regain his memories and defeat Calamity Ganon once and for all.

Intelligence: Despite initially suffering from amnesia, he is as skilled as the other Link's, if not far surpassing them. Held in very high regard before the Calamity. The greatest feat of combat prowess is after his 100 year sleep. After losing most of his memories, Link was able to once again become a prodigally proficient sword combatant, as well as picking up several other weapons he had never used before, and using them incredibly skillfully. He defeated all of the Blights, who killed all four Champions 100 years prior, before eventually outmatching, and defeating, Calamity Ganon

Weaknesses: He’s very reckless | Has an immense cooldown on his Champion's Abilities. His information analysis requires him to make a photo of the being he wants to analyze

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Daruk's Protection: Creates a glowing barrier around himself that allows him to protect himself against three attacks, no matter how powerful they are. Can reflect Guardian lasers.
  • Urbosa's Fury: Summons thunderbolts from the sky to cause heavy damage to foes.
  • Mipha's Grace: Revives himself when he loses all his Hearts. Refills all his Hearts and gives him five Bonus Hearts.
  • Revali's Gale: Summons a vertical wind shaft and uses it to fly upwards with his Paraglider.
  • Flurry Rush: After dodging an attack with the right timing, Link will speed up dramatically and launch a swift barrage of attacks at his opponent.
  • Bullet Time: Upon drawing his bow in air, Link's surroundings slow down in front of him, which allows him to fit in a far greater number of, and far more precise, arrow shots.
