    According to Aonuma, they thought about it but decided against it, with the legendary designer saying...

    We thought about it, and decided that if we're going to have a female protagonist it's simpler to have Princess Zelda as the main character.

    [...] if we have princess Zelda as the main character who fights, then what is Link going to do? Taking into account that, and also the idea of the balance of the Triforce, we thought it best to come back to this [original] makeup.

    In Japan, men come first and women come second.
    Or sometimes not at all.

    What is funny is that Link looks more feminine in this game compared to others. I bet they planned this all along :P

    Linkle eh? But you still can't change the fact that he can take a tinkle with his winkle.

    Yes, but suppose someone tries to get Link into bed, wyd? They'll obviously find out by the male sounding grunts Link makes.

    Actually, now that you bring it up, I'm surprised they didn't give the players the possibility to play as Linkle. Would have been a great opportunity to maybe show that the hero of time can sometimes reincarnate as a female instead.

    Haven't died from a single shot but have lost a lot of hearts due to it. :P

    He just doesn't seem to say a word at all.

    You're quite right about that. :P

    My initial reaction to the reveal trailer was that Link kinda looked like a cel-shaded Ellie from The Last of Us, now it makes sense.

    By Link's body shape, I knew he was a transgender. Let's hope the Christ for Zelda he doesn't go all the way with surgery.

    It's amazing how he's able to defeat super powerful enemies yet he's bare-bones.

    IDK, seemed like Link and the fish girl were hitting it off there... If Link gets surgery, I suspect it would look something like this:
