Young Link (also known as Child Link in Japan) is a playable character in the fighting video game, M.U.G.E.N Trilogy. Due to being the child version of Link, he has the same moveset as the regular Link, but with minor enhancements. Young Link was confirmed on February 1, 2015 along with the other characters who appear in Super Smash Bros. Melee and Fujiko Takimoto provides the role for him, using voice clips borrowed from Super Smash Bros. Melee and Ultimate, with Nobuyuki Hiyama providing the role of his transformation, Fierce Deity Link using voice clips from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, Hyrule Warriors and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.


The first appearance of a prepubescent Link is in the series' first installment. This is confirmed by the trophy description for Young Link in Super Smash Bros. Melee, which refers to the Link featured in this game as his first appearance. In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Pac-Man's Classic Mode route uses Young Link to represent the series' debut in 1986, and the Spirit Battle for Link (The Legend of Zelda) uses Young Link's 2nd costume color as a puppet fighter.

However, the playable Young Link in the Super Smash Bros. series is based specifically upon the incarnation who made his debut in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, in which the "Hero of Time" begins his quest as a young boy. Initially growing up in Kokiri Forest under assumption of being a Kokiri, Link was eventually summoned by the Great Deku Tree to receive his very own fairy, Navi. During this, the Tree also reveals that Link is destined to save Hyrule by preventing a desert man clad in black armor from acquiring the Triforce, an almighty relic that can grant any wish.
