Sometimes the logic in a Zelda game is a bit of a stretch from real life. For instance: Link can seemingly carry around a pair of shoes which are so heavy they cause him to sink in water… but only when he puts them on his feet. Likewise, he can carry a small army’s assortment of equipment… but only 255 Rupees.
In this comic by Katie Tiedrich found on Awkward Zombie, the author pokes at another peculiar bit of logic found in nearly all video games, but especially Zelda: what exactly are Link’s priorities when he is injured?
