Link has been redesigned to match his appearance in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. He can now pick up arrows he's fired, and his bombs have been upgraded to remote bombs, so you can set them off when the timing is just right!
—Description from the Super Smash Blog.

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.
