Young Link is the second Link of Smash Bros., preceding Toon Link. What makes him different from Toon Link? He has flaming arrows. Flaming. Arrows. He's also the only character cut from Melee who was directly replaced as Roy, Mewtwo, Ike, and Lucario were meant to coexist (and all do now), and Dr. Mario and Pichu weren't replaced.
On January 14, 2015, Young Link was confirmed to return as DLC!
...in Hyrule Warriors.People hate his inclusion almost as much as Tingle because he's just another Link, Fierce Deity Link is only a temporary transformation, he got in over Skull Kid, Majora's Mask wasn't his debut game (never mind that it he had his most prominent role in that game, no, that would be ridiculous), and he was one of the least requested characters with a chance of making it in.
Role in the Zelda UniverseEdit
Young Link is the fourth most recurring Link, under Toon Link, Classic Link, and Link. However, Ocarina of Time is seen as one of the greatest games ever (whether it actually is another story), so Young Link is the second most recognizable Link, under Link.
Should He Come Back?Edit
If you don't mind having three Links that all play similarly, and he doesn't get in the way of anyone else, Young Link would make a good candidate for another Zelda character.
Currently, Young Link requesters are a dying race. A user who goes by Euroliis seems to be the only active one, but the Smashfaqs ballot results beg to differ. It is unknown if any other specimens are alive.
- Was cut because Toon Link is superior in every way
- philes like the term Young better than Toon and are the only ones that care he was replaced. Or Ocarina of Time/Majora's Mask fans. Or people who don't like The Wind Waker. Or just people who prefer Young Link in general.
