Link (リンク) is a veteran fighter in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. He was confirmed in the game's first teaser trailer in March of 2018.





Changes from SSBWU/3DS


  • Link's appearance is based off his appearance in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild when wearing the Champion's Tunic, with his classic appearance being an alternate costume.
  • Link no longer uses the clawshot or hookshot for his grab; as such, he also no longer possesses a tether recovery.
  • Link has a new Final Smash that replaces Triforce Slash, in which Link uses an Ancient Bow to fire an Ancient Arrow in front of him in a similar fashion to Light Arrow.

Ground Attacks

  • Link received a new jab combo.
  • When at 0%, Link can fire a projectile beam from his sword when using his forward smash.

Aerial Attacks

Grabs and Throws

Special Attacks

  • All of Link's Special Moves have their appearance updated to reflect its appearance in Breath of the Wild.
  • Link can pick up arrows that miss their targets; the next time the bow is used, it will then fire two arrows instead of one. Picked up arrows can also be thrown as items.
  • Link's Bombs can be detonated remotely; he is only able to have one bomb on the stage at a time, rather than two.
  • The Gale Boomerang has been replaced with an ordinary Boomerang.
