Umm, I never said it wasn't. If anything I was saying that the characters origins make it possible for him to be anything. Stop putting words in my mouth. Link is not the same character throughout the games and a female link wouldn't be out of line for the lore, nor would any other combination of traits as long as you have backstory to support them.jaibryan said:Azure23 said:Were you not paying attention?

Screwing with an established character will always be seen as bad. "Why not a woman jus cuz" isn't an excuse because there's no process for link to change like Dr. Who which COULD produce a female doctor (I think). Otherwise, why not a male black Link? Why not a trans-gender Pakistani if you're wanting to change established characters "just cuz".
However, a different lead character in that universe that's female would be just fine and no one would say anything because it's a new character being established. Same thing went for a dark skinned spiderman, people were into that because it wasn't "black Peter Parker".
The "process" for change is the same process that reincarnated the triforce into three people over the generations. The triforce of wisdom is reincarnated in a princess, the triforce of power is reincarnated in a warrior, and the triforce of courage is reincarnated in a hero. There's literally no lore reason why that cant be a woman. Most Zelda games star different reincarnations of Link and Zelda and Ganon anyway, I mean do you remember the timeline where Zelda was a damn pirate captain?
Link is not an established character, he's a completely personality-less cipher who's only job is to the players "link" (get it?) to the game world. I mean the whole why not a lady thing? Really? Because right now the default character design triple a gaming is a boring white guy with some stubble.
Basically Aiden Pierce can fuck off the edge of my dick.
than why not black link or asian link? why is equality only important when it comes to gender and not race?
