Living in North Castle with Princess Zelda and King Harkinian, Link is in charge of protecting the Triforce of Wisdom from falling into Ganon's hands. However, he dislikes his new lifestyle, claiming that it is boring and would rather be off fighting monsters and roaming the world. The only positive thing, he says, is that he gets to be in company of Princess Zelda, who usually dislikes Link's overall personality. Despite this, it is revealed in "The Missing Link" that she loves the young hero anyway but would rather keep it a secret to prevent it from going into Link's head. Link is persistent at any rate in trying to get Zelda to kiss him, and asks for a reward any time the young hero saves her. Any time that seems like Zelda is about to kiss him, they are always interrupted by Spryte, Ganon's minions or even Link's own clumsiness ruining the moment, leaving the young hero frustrated. Link's motives for rescuing Zelda are not always a kiss, however, as he seems to genuinely care for her and would do anything to save her, which seems to be his weakness. Even so, he will take any chance to impress Princess Zelda or even to make her jealous.

- Threw his shield so hard that it flew all the way out of the Underworld before stopping, even with Link and Zelda standing on it (Underworld Connections).
- The Crissword has sliced several Hylian weapons in half, which should be superior to human weapons (Stinging a Stinger).
- Once defeated Ganon using nothing but bees just because the Triforce of Wisdom told him to (Stinging a Stinger, though this is likely PIS).
- Held on to a rampaging Octorok for a long while until someone helped him out (The White Knight).
- Yelled so hard from a bottom of a lakebed that the entire lake shook (Underworld Connections).
- Made Spryte infatuated just by looking at him.
- Link’s feet can hold his entire body weight for an extended period of time.
- Just after waking up he can easily blitz and overpower many Moblins, who are stronger than Hylians, who are stronger than humans; claims he can kill 15 of them at once.
- Defeated multiple Tinsuits, who can casually destroy heavy stone walls, and did not use his sword while doing so (The White Knight).
- Fell a distance many times higher than the North Castle itself, so high that Zelda's wheelbarrow she put under him exploded upon him hitting it, which he then easily shook off (Sing for the Unicorn).
- Deflected a wall busting blast while greatly injured (The White Knight).
Key: Base | Power Bracelet Amplification
Note: There are some that argue in this episode the reason Link avoids his sword blast is because he continually forgot about being a spirit, thus he dodged it due to that. However, that's actually not the case as a couple of seconds ago he remembered he was a soul. He also doesn't forget about him being a spirit again after that specific scene except for one more time where he wasn't thinking about that cause Zelda agreed to kiss him, also whenever it's meant to be a scene played for laughs about him forgetting he's a spirit they specifically mention it, they make no mention of it here and Link just tells her she's shooting it wrong. Thus, Link does not forget about being a spirit during this moment.
Note 2: There are also some that argue his beams only works on magical creatures. However, Link's affected by Ganon who uses similar power, as a spirit he was afraid of being hit by his beam, and regular non-magical objects have the same effect as when the beam hits magical beings. Thus, the existence erasure is not only limited to magical creatures.
