Link (リンク, Link) is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch. His return in Super Smash Bros. 4 was announced during the E3 Nintendo Direct on June 11th, 2013. He was also among the first wave of amiibo that are compatible with Super Smash Bros. 4. Akira Sasanuma reprises his role as Link's voice actor, albeit via voice clips recycled from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

Trophy Description

Green clothes? Pointy hat? Yep, it's Link, all right! In this game, his sword and shield make for effective attacking and blocking, and his bow, bombs and boomerang will spice up any battle. He's even brought his Clawshot for grabbing enemies and edges. Jeez, just how much stuff can Link carry?


  • During Link's first victory animation, his eyebrows appear lighter than usual, only to revert to their original shade of color once the animation ends.
  • In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, a glitch prior to update 1.1.0 enabled the player to see characters' bind poses. In Link's case, it could be seen that his bind pose was modeled in an unusual way, without forming a "T" shape like other bind poses.
    • This pose can still be seen even post-update 1.1.0, albeit only during the Master Core battle. If one looks close enough when Master Shadow begins to form, Link's bind pose is used instead of a normal falling pose.
  • Link's alt. trophies in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS appear very similar to his ancestor's All-Star and Adventure Mode trophies, respectively, in Super Smash Bros. Melee.
