There’s a huge subsection of Zelda fans who like to debate just who exactly Link ends up with (romantically) in any given Zelda game. Is it the princess herself? Or Malon? Peatrice? Maybe even Groose?
ComputersAndVideoGames compiled a list–seemingly for Valentines Day–of “The 25 Greatest Nintendo Romances.” And not so surprisingly, Zelda characters were mentioned in three of those places in the list.
Whose Heart Containers made the cut?
Coming in at number six is Peatrice and Link from Skyward Sword. Yup, that’s right, their romance beat out Link and Zelda in this list. And if you’ve played the game and indulged Peatrice in her affections, maybe you can understand why.
At number 10 is Kafei and Anju from Majora’s Mask. Which is fitting as the player had to work so hard to untangle their story.
And then at number 11 is Link and Zelda from Skyward Sword. That game certainly hints at a relationship much more deep than “I’m the princess, you’re the hero, save us” for once… yet the game still leaves it up to your interpretation just how far into “romance” territory it goes.
