They're fictional anyway. They have no real gender. They are what you imagine them to be.

In this case it doesn't even matter. Link is rarely the same character as the previous games' Links, so it isn't even a gender swap, it's a completely different character altogether.
>>
>>257655395
The thing is though, the way "Legend of Zelda's" plot work, a female Link wouldn't be all that out there compared to a male Samus.

Link in OoT, WW, TP and SS are all different characters, reincarnations really, meaning that a female Link wouldn't affect the series or change anything drastic.

And before anyone says that it would be pandering, the Zelda series is not above pandering to it's fanbase, seeing as that's how Twilight Princess came about after Wind Waker.
>>

The only thing that would be retarded would be a random village girl being named Zelda and a prince Link, like fucking Diaz suggested. There's reasons in story why that wouldn't happen.

Some random girl named Link going on to save Hyrule would be fine.

It's funny how so many SJW pandering artists are the same ones that openly include their fetishes in their garbage comics.

>>257656618
Yes, that would be change for the sake of change. But, you can still have the same legend of Zelda the wise royal and Link the brave warrior, just with the genders switched.

Or, just do what P3P did and have a female game where the dialogue and details change, but the overall plot and sequence of events remains the same.

>or change anything drastic.
except it will
The reincarnations you are referring to are reincarnations of "the hero of time", the character who is well established and iconic is Link, who is a male lead.
and to your point about nothing drastic being affected, the same can be said about Samus, with the exception of Other M, Samus was a silent protagonist, her gender really plays no role in her character of a bounty hunter, so switching it out to male shouldn't be that big of a deal, right?
see how annoying that can get?

If you told me they were switching genders at Zelda 2or even 3 I don't think anyone would mind, but after almost two decades Link as a male is as established of a character as Micky Mouse, and switching genders would definitely be pandering.
That being said a Zelda game with Zelda being the lead wouldn't be that bad of an idea.

I didn't imply any of that, you're just gay.

>>257657101

Zelda wouldn't work, she's the incarnation of the Goddess Hylia, so it's logical that she remains a girl.

Samus is an established character since the first game

Link is commonly never the same person throughout the series (excluding direct sequels of course)

Making Link female makes more sense than making Samus male.

Link's gender isn't as important as you think, since it's not really an important part of his legend or reincarnations (except in WW I guess).

The tunic would be the most important thing to Link as a character if anything.

-Wears a green Tunic

-Courageous adventurer and clever puzzle solver
-Triforce of Courage
-Musical ability

These are his most defining aspects through the series. His gender comes up literally once in Wind Waker in reference to OoT Link.

WHY THE HELL DOES LINK NEED TO BE FEMALE?

Is the question I keep asking myself.

Zelda exists, there's no need to make a female Link.

The thought of a girl Link getting her own game before Zelda does, is just stupid.

That was the point of the second game
>>
>>257653431

it would be like the avatar being a women few times in avatar last airbender
>>
>>257658538
There's no real reason to change his gender though. Zelda isn't really a series where the protag's gender matters. Most that would happen is that girls hitting on Link would be genderswapped or turned into "deep friendship" like in that one Harvest Moon.
>>
>>257658793
good thing the first Zelda character with a spinoff was Tingle, and he got three. CD-i games aside.

>>257658796
Samus is an individual character; most games have a new incarnation of Link.
>>
>>257658793
>WHY THE HELL DOES LINK NEED TO BE FEMALE?

Who said that he needs to be female?
>>
>>257658796
You could say that, but in Link's case it could be for variety. Samus is an established character, Link isn't since he changes person almost every time.
>>
>>257658985

Everyone who wants a female protag in Zelda, always seems to think of girl Link before Zelda,
>>
>>257658538
>18 games
>all of them male
h-h-his gender isnt a defining trait at all
>>
>>257658928
Exactly. So why not change it for once? it would shut up a bunch of people and provide some variety for the series (and Nintendo has straight up said that they've been looking for way to make Zelda more different than previous games and go against it's traditions. So making Link a female would fit right into that)
>>
>still no shindol femlink posted

Dun goofed.
>>
What purpose would there be in changing Link's gender though? Zelda is a series where that changing that alone wouldn't do much. You'd have to do it in a game where everything in the world is also a little different from a typical Zelda game, like LA or MM.
>>
>>257659187
>Everyone who wants a female protag in Zelda,

There's your answer. No one needs him to be female, some just want him to be.
>>
>>257658971
>Samus is an individual character

So is Link, he just gets reincarnated.
>>
>>257659187
Not the same guy but true, as I mention here>>257658901
Link in windwaker is reincarnation of himself.

The "Hero" of time can be reborn as anyone.

What kind of thought process did you go through to come to that conclusion?

It's only ever brought up once in WW. His tunic is seen as more important to being "Link" than whether or not you're male or female.

I think it'd be kinda neat if there was a Zelda game with the option to play as Link as a girl, while still keeping male Link
But that's just because I love fem-Link's clothes

If they made a game where you could play as either Link or Zelda, and the only change is who you are and who you save, I'd be down for that.
Just because it's a neat idea.

To be honest, I don't mind.
It fits in line with the lore. I mean, technically there MUST be a Link, but it must not always be male, right?

If that's the case, I don't care at all if Link is female,
in fact I think it's a good design choice to separate this Link incarnation from the others.

Nope, there's no evidence that shows that's how it works in the Zelda universe.

All Links looked the same, and all wore the same type of clothes, clothes based on the original hero, who was male.

I don't think you understand the point I'm trying to make. "The Hero of Time" is the legend that keeps being reincarnated, "Link" is the established male lead that wears a green tunic. Now there is some overlap, but you don't need the legend to make a Zelda game (see Majoras Mask), but you do need that iconic male lead.

>Samus is an established character
how so? aside from being a confident, headstrong, bounty hunter, what trait of hers is exclusive to the female gender?

That's my stance on it. Link doesn't have much of a personality other than the simple "He's brave and heroic!".
It would be an interesting change of pace if there was a female Link, but again, nothing would really be different if he was male or female.

Although sidenote: the OP's image is just concept art of a hypothetical daughter of Link.

I ask, why not a fucking Zelda game? It brings much more possibilities and just another Zelda title of Link.
We can explore what the triforce of wisdom, Zelda point of view or an adventure entirely of her own, use magic and stealth, she could tell us more about the Sheika than Link could ever find out.
Why just gender swamp a main character when there is already a female main character?
>>
>>257659445
Persona is a game about relationships, and being a different gender will alter those relationships. Pokemon is a game where the protagonists change every iteration.
>>
>>257659632

And Toon Link is still male, wore the same clothes as the hero, went on an adventure when he was the same age, and was chosen by the same Goddess to have the triforce of courage, likely for those reasons because the original hero was gone.

What's your point?

The only reason we haven't seen how it would work is because Nintendo never bothered to try it out. It's not like in Doctor Who where the main character IS the same person in different bodies, it's a reincarnation of the spirit of the hero in different time periods.

This, let's be honest there hasn't been any major changes in the games since OoT and changing Link sex would be no different, you would still be playing OoT with twist but with a female.
There is no need for such change, what needs to be changed is the formula.

Just look at the OP. You can have >>257653431 as the main design for a new Link and you'd still have the same visual elements that represent Link (blonde hair, green hat and tunic, master sword and hyrule shield), only a girl instead.

Because Zelda isn't the hero of the series. Her role as a support character and the holder of the triforce of wisdom is far more of an established series staple than Link's gender. If Zelda can not only utilize wisdom, but also fight with courage, what need is there for Link?

Make Link a female and you're still playing as the hero. Make Zelda the hero and you've swapped heroes entirely.

>>257661282
But why change Link when you can have Zelda?
Why play as Link 2.0 instead of something actually innovative? Hell even if Zelda acts as a Link skin it would be the same.

just make a mask/ring/armlet/necklace/fether that turns Link a grill for a certain side-story/joke mission involving stealth that's all.

nintendo is pretty good at creating cool looking stuff
>>
>>257661469
They'd have to change triforce pieces entirely, since the only way to be ready to quest is to be courageous
And while possible, that's kinda odd. It's literally a sex change to both characters then with the others face/clothes colors rather than swapping the characters, since the personality won't follow because of the triforce
It's easier to change their genders and be done with it.
>>
>>257661347
So the point here is being the main center of the game as a female?
Zelda could easily have her own adventure unrelated to the triforce ala MM/PH, it would play different than Link, a game for Zelda is more innovative that anything a Fem Link could do.
>>
what if

>>257660798

Nintendo didn't make the game, and likely disapproved of that design, since it's not in the game.

I said this in the other thread, why do you want Link to be female?

For variety? Link with boobs, so innovate

For porn? There's tons of it already, male or female, you name it

Just 'cause? I'd like a game with Zelda as a protagonist if we get a Zelda game with a girl as the hero

The main bad is not Ganon, the triforce is not at work there and instead of focusing on dungeons it's focus on sidequest and NPC interactions.

I honestly think the idea of fem link works out really good because it makes the origin a bit more interesting. Kind of like how in The Once and Future King, how Arthur forgets a sword to get for his brother so he just finds a sword in the ground, it would be like the Kokiri village is getting all fucked up and Fem-Link is the only one whose cunning and wit is enough to drive off the evil, when the prophecy says a hero is to come at a similar time.
Also, how do we know this is official for the next game? I am honestly pretty excited if this is the case

So you're talking about a spinoff with Zelda as the main, not a main installment. And I don't necessarily disagree with that idea.

But in terms of the main series, Link should be the protagonist. Whether or no he has a dick is irrelevent. I don't care if they ever make Link a female or not, but I WILL care if he's robbed of his primay role in the series.

Wow, you didn't even read what I wrote, I shouldn't have expected that from you, I guess

Either way, I don't give a shit about what you think but wanting to change a character for bullshit things instead of wishing Nintendo would focus on the real problems the games have like the handholding, the eternal tutorials and the fact that the games are getting easier with each iteration sound really fucking retarded to me

I would play the shit out of a game where Zelda is the main character.

Honestly, I feel there's a lot more you could do more with her from a gameplay and story perspective.
>>
>>257662723
>Samus
Is the same character in every game. The Samus in Metroid is the same Samus in Super Metroid is the same Samus in Metroid Prime. Samus is an established character. If Samus was suddenly inexplicably male in the next Metroid game, that would be a problem. You couldn't flat out call it pandering because you really don't know what reasons they had for doing this, but it would be a problem.

>Link
The Link you play as in OoT and MM is an established character. The Link you play as in LttP is an established character. The Link you play as in WW is an established character. Etc. These are all separate, established characters. They are not the same, single, established character. If a new Zelda game came out, not directly related to any previous Zelda games, and Link happened to be female it wouldn't be a problem from an establishment point of view. I know, you have a problem with it because you're juvenile and in your mind this kind of change is clearly pandering to the social justice agenda™. But it wouldn't be as if they retconned or rewrote anything about the series. Now if MM's Link was inexplicably female, that would be a problem, but it hasn't happened that way.

It's only stupid because you would make such a big deal about it.

That's the main problem with the female Link shits.

Link is more than just a blank slate, each one has friends and family before you start the game.

a female Link would actually change a lot more than most of them think.

Femlink would have to involve some explanation as to WHY she picks up a sword and fights.

Whether or not it make sense to you or anyone else literally (literally) does not matter. Other M takes place in the same universe and timeline as every other Metroid game. That is fact.

Duh. On a more serious note, if you place so much stock in established lore, how can you defend the legend about the Hero of Time, "If a person who has an evil heart gets the Triforce, a Hero is destined to appear...and he alone must face the person?"
So, to make Link a female, you'd have to remove the triforce and Ganon, which would make it a spinoff game, in which case you might as well make a Zelda/Sheik game.

Memes have power over the stupid.

Didn't you play MGR?

it's gd damn pathetic that a shitty one-liner is all it takes to make a troll thread with over 500+

you fags pretty much troll yourselves at this point

>>257654474

>All these shocked replies

Has /v/ been taken over by tumblr?

Of course it's fucking gay, it's a tiny step above trap faggots.
>>
>>257670843
some of us just enjoy femLink. not my fault there's so many shitters in the thread too.
>>
>>257670593
You're not the guy I was arguing with, but if they wanted to leave any room for interpretation, why would they use the word hero in every single description of Link? Why not any of the like ten genderless synonyms?
>>
>>257670941
>gay to be aroused by a girl
Sure.
>>
>>257671045

>Gay to be aroused by a tranny

ftfy
>>
>>257670843
So a normal day at /v/, I don't see why you're so upset if it's been like this for a while
>>
>>257670843
>implying people haven't been talking about this shit all day
>>
>>257671102
There's a difference between a guy who became a girl and a girl whose design is based off a guy's.
>>
>>257671004

If you guys just admitted you liked dudes, none of this would have happened.
>>
>>257671017
>Hero is a rigidly male only word
not even close, faggot
>>
>>257671214
I don't like dudes. I think Link has attributes that I would find attractive in a girl. hence a girl based on Link being attractive to me where male Link isn't.
why is this difficult for people to understand
>>
>>257671190

>It's different because I say so
>>
>>257671332
Honestly, I don't know why it's so hard for you to understand.
>>
>>257671004
FemLink is cool and all... in fanart
People asking for femLink are just as bad as people that ship Link with Dark Link, just for the fucking porn
>>
>>257671190
What if they're both? Don't pay me any mind, I just want an excuse to post more Ranma.
>>
Why are the gays on /v/ so insufferable?

It hurts to live

>I think Link has attributes that I would find attractive in a girl

But he's a guy, therefore you find him attractive even with those feminine qualities.

You just put them on a girl to be more comfortable with yourself.
>>
>>257671392
he either understands but doesn't want to stop arguing, doesn't want to understand because he wants to keep arguing, or can't understand because he's autistic
>>
>>257671398
but anon, I like femlink because she looks kinda like me
>>
>>257653431
Not even a cute woman would help them be noticiable again.
>>
>>257671392

Because making a character who's been male for 25+ years a female just so you can fap, is fucking gay.
>>
>>257671228
>what is the word heroine
>>
>>257671651
Your argument always boils down to "being attracted to a girl whose design is similar to this guy's is gay," which is retarded.

Please stop responding until you can think of a coherent argument. In other words, just stop responding.
>>
>>257657140
You realize that the old broadcast satellite Zelda games, which were on the SNES, both feature playable female characters, right?
>>
>>257671830
>similar

It's the same fucking thing with boobs and a vagina.
>>
>>257671452
I know
Why won't they admit they want to fuck Link instead of trying to force the femLink shit to hide their homolust?

>>257671531
So you wanna... fuck yourself?
>>
>>257671830
Whatever helps you sleep at night
>>
>>257671913
If that's what your femlink would be, then you're doing female design wrong.

Retarded and insufferable, I see.
>>
>>257662051
that's why you're talking about Zelda U, right?
>>
>>257671964

Show me one pic in this thread that isn't like that.

Show me something that you could at in a thumbnail, and be able to tell it's gender right away.
>>
>>257671981
>what is the fact that they could've made it clear if he was a boy or a girl because there's a perfectly good word to do just that?
>>
>>257671934
I want to play a video game as someone who looks like me as opposed to a guy vaguely like me. it's not that complicated.
>>
someone post that comic of that guy turning into a girl while playing zelda
>>
>>257671531
But you're a hambeast and a terrible person.
>>
>>257658653
Yeah, he's a fucking fool for thinking it's weird that Link is already riding a horse and using multiple weapons before acquiring his main tunic.
>>
>>257672134
Right here man >>257656121
>>
>>257672087

The fact that you're defending yourself so hard proves to me that you're gay.

Try fapping to male Link without shooting semen all over your ceiling, you'll know for sure you aren't gay.
>>
If Link's gender doesn't matter, then why all of the screaming and shitting yourselves in rage over the idea of a female Link? All I ever see for reasons from you people is "SJW PANDERING!!" and other shit about your favorite imaginary boogiemen.
>>
>>257672289

Still looks like male OoT Link in the thumbnail.

Nice try.
>>
>>257672161
Then go play the sims or any RPG with customization

If you play Zelda for how the character looks and no how fun the games are then I'm fucking glad Nintendo doesn't listen to people like you
>>
>>257672373
Honestly, I'm convinced you're the gay one, since you're so vehement in your position and refusing to concede in any logical aspect, it strikes me as you denying your own feelings pretty hard.

I'm secure as hell, you aren't getting to me in any way because you're just asinine and completely illogical.

>>257672515
Lying doesn't support your argument. Even if you weren't it'd just be because the thumbnail isn't zoomed enough on the Femlink.
>>
>>257672153
well that word sure as hell isn't "hero"

They could flat out say something along the lines of "the Hero of Time is male" by way of being a male descendent or something, but they don't. They don't clearly specify the gender of the Hero of Time. You're putting all the weight in the world on pronouns and the commonly gender-neutral word "hero".
>>
>>257672403
>If Link's gender doesn't matter

It does matter, only the femlinkfags are saying it doesn't.
>>
>>257672275
Link is already riding Epona and using the slingshot and a sword before getting his green tunic in TP, anon
>>
>>257672591
I still enjoy Zelda games anyway. it would just make it even more fun for me, personally.
>>
>>257671964

That's exactly what it should be. Same character, same clothes and aesthetic, same HUP HUP HYEAH, slightly different face and body shape that's difficult to even make out with the camera behind her. That's the complete extent of the impact it should have on a game were it included.
>>
>>257672403
>screaming and shitting yourselves in rage
Quite a few people have been trying to make rational points about why the sudden change wouldn't make sense.
Regardless, Nintendo's not going to do it any time soon, so this is all pointless
>>
>>257672628

Go look up gay Link porn right now if you're so secure.

posts pics of them in the tabs.

Then I'll believe you.
>>
>>257671489
Oh god now I'm going to have to fap
>>
>>257672769
>comparing a slingshot to multiple types of arrows
okay I can see there is no arguing with you
>>
>>257672678
it doesn't matter though
>>
>>257672403
If it doesn't matter why is people so adamant on saying we should get a female Link?
>>
>>257672373
What is so gay about a girl?
Is Jojo gay as well now?
>>
>>257672831
Why would I want to do that? I don't like gay porn.

Besides, I have no need to prove anything, least of all to a completely illogical person like you, I know what I am. You on the other hand...
>>
>>257672896

Turning a character who's been male for 25 years female out of nowhere doesn't matter?
>>
>>257672936

Who is saying that? The only people I'd describe as "adamant" are the ones who don't want it. The "pro" faction argument largely seems to be "it wouldn't affect the game, so why not?".
>>
>>257672936
that isn't what's happening at all though. There's one side adamantly shitting themselves over the very idea of a femLink, and another side that just thinks a femLink would be okay, not that it absolutely has to happen
>>
>>257672632
There's still a way of making it clear, they decided not to because Link is clearly a male and he will most likely stay like one

>>257672795
Good, at least you're not a retard like half the poeple itt
>>
>>257673004
>Why would I want to do that? I don't like gay porn

You don't want to look it up, because you're afraid you'll like it.

I finally exposed you.
>>
>>257673083
It's a different person every time, a femlink would be a new character farther down the timeline.

She'd be a regular old girl in a village who just happens to be good at swordplay and later happens to don the old green tunic.

Surely it's not gay to be attracted to a regular girl in a coincidentally iconic green tunic.
>>
>>257672936
Why are people so adamant that we don't have a female Link?

Link is the player. He's more of an avatar than a character. That's why you can name him whatever you want and why he has very little emotion in the games. He's like Robin, your WoW character, and other similar characters. If Link was female, none of this would change at all, nor would any of the story be changed.

So, tell me, why is it such a horrible bad evil thing for one Link incarnation to be a woman?
>>
>>257672936
>Why people would ask for new things
>Why people would ask for more options
People get tired of not being able to changer their avatar.
>>
>>257673178
Dude, you think I didn't see that coming a mile away? I know your game. If I did go through with that you'd call me gay for being so eager to look up and post gay porn. Just stop embarrassing yourself with dumb fallacies.
>>
>>257673245
>Surely it's not gay to be attracted to a regular girl in a coincidentally iconic green tunic.

That has nothing to do with the current conversation, but yes it is gay.
>>
>>257672884
>multiple tyoes of arrows
We only saw one, though?
And he does use it as a weapon to kill wallskulltulas, other than that my example is solid and you can't just accept you were wrong

Also, I'm not the guy you were arguing with
