“Brawl in the Family” is a series of comics featuring Kirby and many other characters from Super Smash Bros. Brawl, including Link. Each of the strips is relatively short and definitely a good source for laughs, so it’s great news that Link has made his way into one of these comics. In it, Mario, Kirby, and Link are challenged to the game of Pushmo, in which they each try to rescue a child on top of a stack of blocks. Of course, things don’t go exactly as planned. Hit the jump to find out why each of these beloved heroes fails at the rescue, and why Link is perhaps the most destructive of all.
Oh, Link: it seems that using the hookshot for scaling walls, capturing Skulltulas, and bouncing from rooftop to rooftop is perfectly fine, but when he tries to use it to rescue a poor child, he just gets yelled at!

What’re your thoughts on the hilariously unfortunate fiasco featured in the comic–can you think of any other of Link’s items that would’ve been a no-no in trying to rescue this child?
