    That got me confused when I was a kid. I thought that the playable character was named Zelda.

    And while we're at it... In Metroid games why don't we play as a Metroid? Heck... there's even a Metroid game with no metroids in it. Why?!

    I used to name Link Zelda in my games, and The male character in every Pokemon game Ash.

    When he said, "like in mario..." he was saying how you always have to save the same person. Mario always rescues Peach, like Link always rescues Zelda.

    Total misnomer, I was hoping to see some hot Snake-eating action because of the name. [​IMG]

    in many games, movies, etc the title is based on the story itself not the hero. legend of zelda is about zelda, metroid is about the metroids among other things.

    I always wondered who/what Zelda was, I though it was the hero's name...

    Final Fantasy wasn't final. They made at least 13 more!
    Pit isn't called Kid Icarus
    You don't play as starfox
    You don't play as megaman either
