With the promise of the new Super Smash Bros. title for the Wii U, we have been seeing an incredible amount of art from the game. Zelda, among other favorites, have already been confirmed as playable characters in the game, but I know you all have been itching to see just what Hyrule’s princess has in store for her competitors. After reviewing a recently released art gallery from Nintendo Everything featuring twenty-two shots of Zelda, I can confidently conclude that she is going to give other big name characters a run for their money. Hit the jump to see just how intense she can be!

You got your teaser picture above, now prepare yourselves for some fabulous and personality-filled shots of Princess Zelda beating up, ambushing, blocking and otherwise owning other characters. If that is not enough to satisfy you, I have included some particularly entertaining shots of Zelda revenging herself on Link after he cuddles up to another royal cutie pie, Princess Peach.

Zelda passing by Toon Link on a Skyloft world scene.

The classic duo team! Perhaps Navi is a projectile weapon? That could be fun.

smash_bros_zelda-13
Princesses backhand assassins with swords. It’s actually a skill they learn when quite young.

smash_bros_zelda-14
Is this the Smash Bros. equivalent of walking away from an explosion? Or maybe she’s like, “Skyloft? Screw this place. I’m going home.”

Standard pre-fight chit chat with Olimar and his loyal pikmin.

Mega Man doesn’t have enough badges to train me! (Yes, that is a triple Nintendo reference. You’re welcome.)

smash_bros_zelda-17
Our favorite royal ladies… being frenemies.

Clearly Zelda is not at all interested in older or shorter men, and Mario is very upset about the rejection.

smash_bros_zelda-2
Behold the terrible power of Zelda, as she uses her magic of the light to manipulate the air and hurl objects at unsuspecting victims!

This is Zelda’s Facebook profile picture. Naturally.

smash_bros_zelda-21
Alas, Zelda’s weakness is fat pikmin. Curse you Olimar!

smash_bros_zelda-22
Princess Zelda has been tagged in a photo! If only all of the pictures taken of us while we are unaware could turn out so nicely.

smash_bros_zelda-3
This looks like a power move in context, but out of context it kind of looks like she’s going to transform into an anime superhero.

smash_bros_zelda-5
Your fire power means nothing! Don’t you know I learned to backhand at a young age?!

smash_bros_zelda-6
It is not okay for Toon Link to make jokes about Zelda’s wardrobe, appearance, age or usefulness.

smash_bros_zelda-7
You thought I was joking about Zelda being trained to backhand, didn’t you? Starting to seem like a legitimate battle strategy, isn’t it?

smash_bros_zelda-8
This move is for when the offender has moved out of standard backhand range and Zelda doesn’t feel like chasing them.

smash_bros_zelda-9
It’s like they are all about to ballroom dance right into each other… or maybe Zelda will ballroom dance them to death!

smash_bros_zelda-4
Zelda, spying on her would-be lover, discovers Link has arranged what appears to be some sort of secret, romantic meeting. This will not stand!

smash_bros_zelda-10
Zelda about to punish Link for flirting with Peach. Grab the popcorn, because this is a show worth watching!

smash_bros_zelda-11
Maybe Zelda came in a bit too hard? Poor Link is dead! On the upside, there’s no chance of Peach stealing him now…

If this collection doesn’t make you want to take on the role of Princess Zelda in the new Smash Bros. installment, I don’t know what will. Let the drastic increase of anticipation begin!

    At no point in this are Link and Rosalina in the same picture….

    • VladNorris

      And that’s bad because of….?

      • Adam Kaczmarek

        It originally said “flirting with Rosalina,” not Peach

        • VladNorris

          Oh, I see. Well, glad they edited that thing….

          But seriously, why did Sakurai made a screenshot where ti seems Link is flirting with Peach in the first place!?

  • CrashLove37

    Zelda’s so spiteful she doesn’t care that she got Peach’s name wrong

  • GreenLinkMaster

    besides wishing his hair were alittle more blond, and despite the fact that he’s lying on the ground as if defeated (by Zelda no less) Link is lookin awesome.

      Peach already fills Smash’s quota for the “Blond Haired, Blue Eyed, Pretty Princess in Pink” category. We dont need every female in this game to be blond like Samus, Peach, and Rosalina.

      Zelda is far more elegant and graceful as a brunet, and adds diversity among the gown wearing fighters in smash.

      • Anibal

        Did you read who he was referring to?
        “Besides wishing HIS hair were a little more blond…”
        “…despite the fact that HE’s lying on the ground…”
        “…LINK is looking awesome.”
        Just in case, he’s talking about Link, not Zelda.

  • TheSkeletonMan939 .

    I hope they remember to add in the chain for her necklace (or whatever it is) so that it isn’t just hovering there.

    And that is one fat pikmin.

  • Angel

    Awesome screen shot I like them all of them

  • Ixbran

    Zelda is looking absolutely ravishing in these pictures! So glad they went with her TP design, it has to be the most elegant and beautiful of all her appearances, I think so anyway.

  • VladNorris

    And that story of yandere Zelda is quite scary.

  • Ryu

    Boy, these captions are hilarious! Now I REALLY wanna play as Zelda! xD

  • DocGuy

    The person doing this commentary and captions should really play Smash Bros. before posting these.

  • Zeller

    Am i the only one who thinks link looks really, REALLY derpy in the one with zelda and navi?

  • Shona

    They look great! I can’t wait for this game!
