Proper Noun
The main character/hero from the Legend of Zelda series. Link usually appears as a young man, age 12-16, though in the game Ocarina of time he was roughly 10 years old then when he left the temple of time about half way through the game he was 17. So there is no confusion, none of the Legend of Zelda game time lines are related to each other. Link is the wielder of the Master Sword and holder of the Triforce of Courage. Link also uses a variety of tools in his adventures, including bombs, a boomerang, a bow and arrows, and many others though they differ throughout the games. He fights Ganondorf alongside Princess Zelda and has a fairy named Navi who accompanies him and gives him advice. Link is also in capable of speech, or is just the quiet type, and I mean REALLY quiet. Link never says anything other than making vocal noises when jumping, fighting or taking damage.
Link, in addition to being the hero of Hyrule, is a real player as he has at least 3 girlfriends by the end of each game, except for the old ones and the GB titles. They are as follow:

1) Princess Zelda (obvious)

2) Saria: Link's childhood friend from Ocarina of Time

3) Malon: A young farm girl Link meets and befriends in Ocarina of Time

4) Princess Ruto: The princess of the Zora's (fish people) who Link supposedly was going to marry in Ocarina of Time

5) Tetra: The captain of a pirate ship, that started Link's adventure in Wind Waker, was really Zelda but she didn't know who she really was when she met Link

6)Medii: A Rito girl (bird people) who Link meets in Wind Waker, might not be a loving relationship, just a friendly one

7)Ilia: Link's childhood friend from Twilight Princess, her being kidnapped starts his quest in the first place.

8)Midna: The princess of the Twilight Realm who replaces Navi as a companion and advice giver, though she is much less annoying. Midna originally planned to use Link as a minion but eventually fell in love with him, awwwwww. Also, Link really loved Midna back, when it is usually the girl just falling for Link, Midna counts as 2 girls because when she met Link she was a small imp, but after Ganondorf is defeated she returns to her normal (and very hot) form.

I am sure that there are some characters that I missed, but I got most of them.

Link is the main charectar Shigeru Miyamoto's classic series "Zelda". He was named link because Shiggy thought of him as the "Link" between the player and the game world. He is a Hylian, an elfish type charcetar from the land of hyrule. In most games, he is young (looks about 12, but he becomes an adult for Half of OOT), with golden-blond or brown hair, and wears a Green tunic. Except for OOT and MM, link is reborn in a diffrent time and storyline in every game (as is Princess Zelda)
and prevents ganondorf, the evil wizard guy who was the only male born amoung the Geurdos, from stealing the triforce. The storylines do relate to each other tho (espically in Wind Waker)
Link...he come to town...come to save...the princess zelda!

The main hero from Nintendo's classic "Legend of Zelda" series. He can do almost anything, except talk and jump.
"My name is Link" <-- something you will never hear in the Zelda series, because apparently Shiggy thinks it might shatter our fragile gamer souls to play an actual character
