In the Wii U version of Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2, the titular character Bayonetta and the side character Jeanne appear with multiple Nintendo-inspired outfits, including the Hero of Hyrule costume based on Link. With this costume, they use the Master Sword and Hylian Shield, with the Master Sword replacing the Shuraba Sword and the Shield used to parry and counter incoming attacks. Other elements from the Zelda series also appear, such as collectible Rupees and jingles that play when opening a locked door or a chest.

Every floor in the game has a hidden glitchy looking room with a Shopkeeper dressed up like Error and saying the phrase "I am Error" in reference to his appearance in The Adventure of Link. One of the Challenges in the game called "I Rule" is a sound reference to Hyrule where Isaac is given Mom's Knife as a sword, the Liberty Shield as a shield, The Boomerang and both Key Pieces to resemble the Big Boss Key.

Afterbirth

Japanese logo of the game is designed in the style of the logo of Famicom version of the first game.

Ittle Dew bears homage to the classic 2D Zelda titles and contains similar puzzle elements as well as Hearts and Chests. The protagonist herself greatly resembles Link, and she is accompanied by a winged companion, similar to Navi.

Sonic Lost World

The Legend of Zelda Zone artwork
The Legend of Zelda Zone is a free DLC-level for Sonic Lost World. In the level, Sonic the Hedgehog is dressed like Link in a green tunic and boots. The Zone features many elements from Zelda series, including enemies, objects, and sounds. Link himself appears in his Skyward Sword incarnation.

Along with other Nintendo-themed cameos such as Samus's Power Beam, the Hylian Shield appears as a Shield weapon in the Japanese version of Phantasy Star Zero. It is only available using a special code.

Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water

Miu Hinasaki, one of the playable protagonists in Maiden of Black Water, is capable of wearing an alternate costume that grants her the dress of Princess Zelda from Hyrule Warriors.

Soulcalibur II

Link is a playable character in the GameCube version of Soulcalibur II. In Soulcalibur II, Hyrule's tranquility was shattered by the arrival of several disasters, which brought opaque, ominous clouds with them. Eventually, it was discovered that an unknown magician was to blame for all that had happened. Just as the people were about to lose all hope, the sun miraculously returned as Link, having been summoned by Princess Zelda to find the disasters' source, successfully defeated the magician. The people of Hyrule rejoiced in the belief that eternal peace would rule; but it eventually became clear that the magician responsible for the disasters was in fact controlled by an evil sword from another world, Soul Edge, and that the fragments of Soul Edge had been gathering in the other world.[1]
Knowing that the resurrection of the evil blade must be prevented at all costs, Link chose to travel to the other world and destroy Soul Edge himself, taking his trusted Master Sword and Ocarina of Time, and transporting himself off on a secret journey.[2] Through the completion of Arcade mode, Link succeeds in sealing away the evil within the Soul Edge, saving his homeland and quietly leaving the world he had come upon, leaving only a faint echo of his Ocarina.[3]

Link's Attacks

Link is the only character with a ranged attack. His fighting style retains many of his signature moves from past games in the Zelda and Super Smash Bros. series. Some of these moves include the Spin Attack, the Jump Attack, the Down Thrust, the Up Thrust, and the Dash Attack.

Weaponry

Like all Soulcalibur II characters, Link has a total of 11 weapons to choose from. His starting and most-balanced weapon is the Master Sword and Hylian Shield, and the rest of the weapons must be bought in shops in various cities in the Weapon Master Mode.

Link's Weapons
Weapon Set Cost Attributes Description
Master Sword (SCII).png
Master Sword & Hylian Shield
Free Well-balanced A magic sword and shield that have accompanied Link on many adventures and helped him repeatedly save the land of Hyrule. This journey is no less dire, and Link once again goes into battle equipped with these items, this time in another world. These are well-balanced arms for Link.
Razor Sword (SCII).png
Razor Sword
600 Gold Attack goes up 25%
Short reach
Takes 15% block damage
A sword forged by the blacksmith from the Mountain Village on Snowhead. The blacksmith is famous for his perfectionism—this sword is yet another excellent example of of his craftsmanship and boasts an amazingly sharp cutting edge. Unfortunately, the metal used to forge this blade is prone to chipping, so there remains some concern about its defensive capabilities.
Armos Series.png
Armos Series
900 Gold Defense decreases 30%
Offense increases with Soul Charge 40% (deteriorates)
A sword and shield from one of the living Armos statues that dot the land of Hyrule. The origins of these items are shrouded in mystery, much like the Armos themselves. Concentrating one's will increases the weapons' power, but they are a bit too heavy for Link and he cannot use them effectively for guarding.
Megaton Hammer (SCII).png
Megaton Hammer
1,200 Gold Offense goes up 35%
Short reach
An extremely heavy hammer. Learning to use it effectively could take some time, as its reach is somewhat short for a weapon. Its power and toughness, however, far exceed that of any normal sword. It's guaranteed to inspire awe.
Cane of Byrna SCII.png
Cane of Byrna
1,600 Gold Soul Charge boosts offense up to 50%Triforce piece.png
Soul Charge lowers damage received by 25%Triforce piece.png
Soul Charge recovers up to 32 HP each time
An ancient magic staff that grants protection to heroes. It can be used even by those who are not sorcerers as long as their hearts are pure. It is said that praying to the staff with all one's heart will shroud the user in light and fill him with vitality. Because it is not a true weapon, it usually does not fare well when it clashes against an opponent's weapon.
Mirror Shield (SCII).png
Mirror Shield
2,200 Gold Hits taken are counters
33% of damage received is inflicted back onto opponent
A mirror-like shield found in the Spirit Temple. It is an amazing work of art, and there are few who would argue that it is not one of the finest shields in Hyrule. It is said that its surface reflects not only light but hostile intent as well.
Magic Sword and Magic Shield.png
Magic Sword & Magic Shield
3,000 Gold Causes 40% block damage
Weak against physical impact
Ancient arms hidden deep in an underground tomb. This powerful sword holds an enchantment that counters the forces of darkness, and its holy aura allows it to deliver damage to the enemy even without making physical contact. The shield is enchanted with a spell that protects its user from enemy magic, but the actual shield itself is quite old and is weak against physical impact.
Biggoron Sword (SCII).png
Biggoron's Sword
4,000 Gold Long reach
Drains 3 HP per attack
A masterfully crafted long sword forged by the best blacksmith in Hyrule, Biggoron, who lives on Death Mountain. Designed specifically for Link, it is made to be wielded with one hand. Even so, swinging it with full force gets tiring after a while.
Soul Edge (SCII).png
Soul Edge (Complete)
7,700 Gold Offense goes up 40%
Defense goes up 35%
Drains 2 HP per second
An evil blade with a reputation for devouring souls. This weapon is also known to be a shape-shifter—which form it takes depends on its current owner. The forms it has taken are legendary, as are the souls of the renowned warriors it has consumed. Only those with great mental discipline can retain their will while wielding this weapon. It consumes the souls of those who fall before the blade, and also the soul of its wielder.
Great Fairy's Sword (SCII).png
Great Fairy Sword
9,800 Gold Attack goes up 20%
Gains 5 HP per second
Takes 20% block damage
A sword blessed by the Great Fairy, rumored to be able to reflect any and all dark magic. Merely holding it fills the wielder with strength, but unfortunately, its protective power did not survive intact in this world, and it is no longer able to resist enemy attacks.
Bug-Catching Net (SCII).png
Bug-Catching Net
12,500 Gold Offense decreases 80%
Defenses decreases 80%
A long-handled net used for catching bugs. This item is an old companion of Link's and has appeared on many of his adventures—it accompanies him on this adventure as well. Obviously, it is not a weapon, but perhaps it will cause opponents to let down their guard.

Other Information

  • Link's Destined Battle in Arcade mode is against Raphael.
  • The overworld theme from The Legend of Zelda is used in Link's profile viewer and destined battle theme. It is also played if Link was used in Eurydice Shrine gallery.
