The Legend of Zelda is one of gaming’s most beloved and celebrated franchises but that doesn’t stop many people from not understanding who Zelda is. Because the series is named after Zelda, there are countless out there who think that the green-tunic wearing hero of the series (generally refered to as Link) is in fact named Zelda rather that the Princess of Hyrule whom the series is actually named after.
Over the years, gamers of all ages has been introduced to one of gaming’s most beloved series as they controlled the hero in the green tunic on his quest to save both Hyrule and Princess Zelda (whom many wonder why she needs saving in the first place considering how able-bodied the games have grown to depict her.)
The series may be named after Princess Zelda, but if I were given a purple rupee for every time that Link has stepped in to save the Kingdom of Hyrule, then I would need a wallet upgrade. The heroic elf-eared “boy in the green outfit” isn’t afraid to clash steel, shoot arrows, throw bombs, or even travel through the fabric of time itself in order to rescue the princess and ensure the safety of the land. Link is a hero in every sense of the word and on top of it all, he can play a mean ocarina too.
