Ocarina of Time - Dark Link

Hey guys. Guess what? Two more Ocarina of Time posts! Yes, there will be this and another one. However, this articles won't be that great. I have very little information on Dark Link, but the Sheikah Artifacts post will be full of surprises. Anyways, enjoy the post!

Dark Link is perhaps one of the most mysterious characters in all of the Zelda games. He, or it,  knows every move Link knows, attacks identically, sounds the same, and looks exactly alike beside of the dark feature he possesses. Some say that he was created from Links "dark side". I do not believe this. Only one pure of heart can pull the Master Sword out of the Pedestal of Time. Link was able to do this, and this proves that he has no evil in his heart. It is a possibility that he was created by Ganondorf, perhaps the same way he created Phantom Ganon. Another (unlikely) possibilty is that something that happened to Link or one of his ancestors that split his hero and dark side into two, which caused the creation of Dark Link. It's up to you what to believe.

Make sure to watch my new videos that I made on my YouTube channel, and to read my next Ocarina of Time post. It will be really good. I am also planning to make a video for Top 10 Scariest Zelda Songs, so check the "Fun Stuff" page regularly to see if it's up. Enjoy the rest of the site!

  4. Why is it unlikely that something happened and caused Link's dark side to be separated from himself? You say it's probably not what happened, but you don't say why.

  5. dark link was a mere creation by both ganondorf and the king of hyrule this theory is explained in more elaboration if you had played The Legend of Zelda II The Adventure of Link in which to aquire the triforce you must deafeat your own shadow

  6. Have you considered that Dark Link could be the potential to do evil, discarded from Link after drawing the Master Sword? Having a pure heart and being free from evil deeds are two very different things, an holding the Sword of Evil's Bane could have purged such malevolent potential from the Hero, leaving it to coalesce into something with a life of its own.
    I've also toyed with the idea that Dark Link could be a Sheikah, or a byproduct of the tribe, as they are tied to the shadows.
