In Brawl Legends, Link is based off of his Ocarina of Time/Majora's Mask incarnation. This Link was orphaned at a young age and was raised in Kokiri Forest in the land of Hyrule. He began his journey at roughly the age of 11 or 12 when he helped rid the Great Deku Tree of monsters. After many journeys, he eventually ventured beyond Kokiri Forest in order to find Princess Zelda. After meeting with her, he went on other quests to save the Goron and Zora people from dark forces. Following his return to Hyrule's Castle Town, he witness Zelda fleeing the castle as the evil king, Ganondorf, had taken over. Link makes his way into the Temple of Time and draws the Master Sword. He is then frozen in time and awakens seven years later. Now an adult, he is given a mission by the Sages to retrieve medallions throughout the land of Hyrule. After a backbreaking journey, even allying himself with the mysterious Sheik, he returns to face Ganondorf. Sheik was reveled to be a disguised Princess Zelda and they face Ganondorf together. After an epic battle involving several casts of magic, rescuing Zelda from a barrier, and stabbing the Beast Ganon with the Master Sword, Link bids Zelda a goodbye and returns to the past to live out his childhood free of adversity.

Shortly after his return to the past, Link ventured into the Lost Woods with his trusty steed, Epona. He was soon ambushed by the mysterious Skull Kid and was robbed of his belongings, including the Ocarina of Time, his weapons and Epona.. He gave chase, but ended up being turned into a Deku Scrub by the magic of Majora's Mask. After speaking to a Happy Mask Salesman, Link was given the quest of retrieving the mask from the Skull Kid. After waiting three days in Clock Town, the capital of this new land of Termina, Link faced the Skull Kid again and won back the Ocarina of Time. He learned that the nightmarish moon above Clock Town would fall after three days. Fearing the destruction that would follow, Link used the Ocarina to play the Song of Time, allowing him to return to the dawn of his first day in Termina. He also regains his humanity when the Mask Salesman plays the Song of Healing. Link sets out to find a way to stop the moon and stop the evil of Majora's Mask. He helps many people throughout this new land and collects many masks along the way. He is able to return to his Deku form by the use of a mask left by the Song of Healing, as well as a Goron and Zora mask produced by resting the soul of a dead Goron and allowing an injured Zora to pass on to the next life. After reliving the same three day period ofr several months and saving the four giants of Termina, Link once again faces the Skull Kid. Majora's Mask takes on a form of its own, abandoning the redeemed Skull Kid. Link faces it and is given a new mask: the Fierce Deity's Mask. In this form, Link takes on the appearance and abilities of a deity, and easily overpowers Majora, restoring peace to Termina. After this journey, Link returns to Hyrule and watches over the Master Sword and his four Transformatiuon Masks, awaiting the arrival of the next Chosen One of a new prophecy.

Once he reached adulthood, prior to meeting Lee Hatake, Link was sent on a secret journey to find a mysterious power that a wizard that attacked Hyrule possessed. He learned that this power was the legendary sword, Soul Edge, and set off to destroy it. However, other fighters had also set out for the sword, even ones such as Heihachi Mishima and Spawn. Unable to destroy it, Link returned to Hyrule after battling Inferno,a medium for Soul Edge. He thought he had won, but Inferno soon fused with the sword after Siegfried Schtauffen abandoned it, becoming the new Nightmare. Link continued his watch over the Temple of Time and soon realized that Soul Edge and its counterpart, Soul Calibur, were part of the prophecy for the other Chosen One.

Brawl Legends

Seven years after his adventures in Termina, Link appears in the Soul Swords arc where he is shown guarding the Temple of Time. He informs Lee Hatake of the latter's identity as the Chosen One and gives him the Master Sword in the Temple of Time. It is speculated that this takes place roughly a month after his search for Soul Edge, however it is uncertain how long it's been as he is not seen for the rest of the series.


Link has acces to countless alternative forms throughout the Legend of Zelda series, however, his Brawl Legends forms are based on his Ocarina of Time/Majora's Mask and Twilight Princess forms.
