    Link... an Empty Shell?

    I'm not talking about performance-wise... Gawd no, he 'performs' so well that he doesn't even need the master sword, he could just cut his enemies up with his hardenned nipples.

    But that's not the point, I'm asking about his personallity, it seems that's the only thing that they don't really work on in any of the Zelda games (with exception to maybe WW). The only thing we really know about his personality and how he'd act, is that he's courageous (sp?), but we all know why that is eh?

    Anyway, do you think that I'm just ignorant, and that there actually is a lot of detail invested into Links persone? Or do you think that the bland overall nature he has allows the player to sort of dip their own personallity into Links frame?

    Discuss!

    By being given the option to name your character something other than Link in the Zelda series it gives the player a much greater feeling of involvement. Something which Nintendo are clearly very keen on. This would explain the lack of character development in terms of Link and the choices of what you can say to people at certain points. You play the Hero, you are the Hero.

    well, hes a stud with the ladies, but is never interested...and hes a very angry Hylian when hes around enemies. all that grunting and yelling. you could sorta tell what his expressions were in WW. those sort of helped
    When you wish upon a falling star, your dreams can come true. Unless it's really a meteorite hurtling to the earth which will destroy all life. Then you're pretty much screwed no matter what you wish for. Unless it's death by meteor.

    Madness does not always howl. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "Hey, is there room in your head for one more?"

    But they were just expressions. Reactions to situations which anybody would have. They don't help build the personality... because YOU ARE THE HERO.

    Some good answers, I lol'd at the "Well... he's a stud" part. XD

    I think max pretty much hit the nail the head to be honest, but I reckon it'd still be nice if Link would talk every now and then... At least say something! xD

    Well actually I think Nintendo made some good facial animations!
    In some gameplay movies I could see Link was angry! And in one movie where Link almost flies off Epona his eyes widen and you could see his mouth open.
    I could see that Link was scared at that point

    a lot of main characters never talk because that makes you become that person. its better immersion

    Yeah I always liked that and I really hope Nintendo stays away from the voice acting in Zelda!

    That's not reaaaallly a help to his personality though. If you're going to fight, you're going to look fierce, if you're startled by falling off a horse, you're going to look startled.

    Now if he just fell off the horse, sat there and laughed, then that'd show he's someone who can have a laugh at himself, if he sat there and sulked, it'd show he's a withdrawn person, if he roundhouse kicked Epona upside the head, it'd show he's a very angry individual.
