Young Link is a lightweight character who does not slide. He cannot wall cling nor crawl. However he does wield a Mirror Shield that blocks projectiles and reflects energy projectiles. It only works if Young Link is standing still. However, in his standing animation he does drop his shield making him vulnerable. Young Link is a little taller than Toon Link. Young Link’s main weapon is his Razor Sword, however he does use his other swords in this moveset.
: Hero’s Bow
Young Link fires a fire arrow from his bow. This move can be charged and the charge cannot be carried. The arrow does small damage and good knock back.
: Orange Hookshot
Young Link pulls out his Hookshot with his right hand (also his shielding hand because Young Link is left handed plus this is the hand he uses in the game) and fires it and quickly reels it in. This attack can be tilted and charged, and the charge can be carried. If it hits an opponent then the opponent is knocked back with good knockback. It takes two seconds to fully charge and when fully charged it has a range of a little less than 1/2 of Final Destination. If not charged it only goes a little less than 1/4 of Final Destination. If the hook hits the stage Young Link will be pulled towards the stage very quickly. If one presses the A button while being pulled towards the stage, Young Link will slash his sword.
: Spin Attack
On the ground, Young Link pulls out his gilded sword, charges then spins around dealing good damage and good knockback. Unlike Link’s Up B (not to be confused with any of the Majora’s Mask Links), Young Link’s Up B activates faster and does not perform multiple hits. This attack can be charged but the charge cannot be carried. In the air, Young Link pulls out his Gilded Sword and spins upwards sending Young Link up. The last hit is the most powerful dealing good damage and knock back. This attack exhausts Young Link and has good ledge grab range.
: Deku Mask
Young Link pulls out his Deku Mask and puts it on. In a quick puff of smoke Young Link will transform into Deku Link. This takes about as much time as Super Smash Bros. Melee Zelda/Sheik takes to transform however this move cannot be used in the air. If you use the B Button plus one of the taunt buttons instead of using the control stick, you will transform into a different Link.
