Why pink hair?

>Why pink hair?
To provide the player with a strong visual anchor. There's a lot of greens and browns in the game, with brown hair as seen in the official artwork the player character would blend in too much. With pink hair it is easily trackable even with peripheral vision.
>>
>>2884316

It's not really that it'd blend in too much, the pink hair just makes it stand out that much more.

Because the dust hasn't yet settled, else the dust would turn his hair into a more appropriate color.

because if his hair was brown he would be a brown bunny and that's too normal
blonde? you ever seen a blonde bunny?
yep. pink is the only choice after all.
>>
>>2884473
But it's been repeatedly debunked that the rabbit and Link don't even share palettes.

Oh Dobson. He seems to think that the American Mario and Zelda cartoon series were canon.
>>
>>2884473
I know how we all feel about Dobson but that Howard & Nester comic is pretty cute. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

The official answer is to differentiate between this link and link in the original 2 zeldas. Since LttP isnt a remake or a sequel Nintendo wanted to avoid that confusion.

This is the best argument I've seen other than "the devs just wanted it that way"

I wish they had kept it in the official art and Link Between Worlds, I think pink hair is cool as fuck personally. I'd love to see more differences in Links throughout the generations. I love this artist's take on them:

The brim of his hat is yellow. If they wanted, they could've had a pink brim and yellow hair, but they didn't.

He was refering to americans right?

These are all revoltingly gross tbqh mate. Promote your art elsewhere.

I like pink. Link should be cute, not manly. He's only 10 or so after all. Also Zelda 1 was too hard. If you didn't have Nintendo Power, you weren't finishing it. You needed outside help.

No, you fuck off with your "I played the game by myself blindfolded and beat it in 45 seconds" lying. You needed Nintendo Power or somebody else who read Nintendo Power to beat Zelda I.
