i was thinking someone thats appeared in more then 1 game though. i probably just lost few of you. Zant, Midna/Wolf Link are both 1 game. Vaati has been in 3.
first in Zelda 4swords for the GBA.(it was the multiplayer add-on to the Link to the Past remake)
then he was the main boss on the 4swords game for GC.
and then the main villan in Minish Cap.
if you say who deserves the spot, i say Vaati. at least he's been in more then one Zelda game.
