Toon Link is a playable character in the Super Smash Bros. series and the Hyrule Warriors series, appearing in conjunction with a primary Link. His design is based off Link's more recent appearance starting with Four Swords and The Wind Waker with an added airbrush shading as opposed to his normal cel-shading.


Super Smash Bros. Series

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Toon Link is a secret character that can be unlocked by clearing the Subspace Emissary and clearing Classic Mode with Link on any difficulty, clearing the Subspace Emissary and going through the hidden door in The Forest stage, or by participating in 400 Brawls. His stage is the Pirate Ship from The Wind Waker. He is very similar to his older counterpart, even having the Triforce Slash as his Final Smash too. Toon Link also appears as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U.

Most of Toon Link's special moves are the same as his adult counterpart, with a few differences. His Hookshot, which serves as his grab move and can be used as a tether recovery, has a shorter range. His neutral special move, the Hero's Bow, also does not travel as far as adult Link's and has a slower speed. Toon Link's side special move is a standard Boomerang, and his up special as well as his recovery move is the Spin Attack. The latter one varies with adult Link's in that it can trap any nearby foes in a cyclone of slashes.

Unlike Young Link in Super Smash Bros. Melee, Toon Link has three alternate colors that resemble the Links from Four Swords (Red, Blue, and Purple). He also has an alternate color that resembles Link from The Legend of Zelda. Much like regular Link, his last costume is a dark version of Toon Link, which looks like Dark Link.

Trophy Information

Name Image Description How to Unlock
Toon Link Toon Link Trophy.png Link as he appeared in The Wind Waker and Phantom Hourglass, with big eyes and an expressive face. He lived peacefully on Outset Island until a bird captured his little sister, and he came to her rescue. In The Wind Waker, he had to crawl, press up to walls, and the like. His green clothes were worn on his 12th birthday and are the lucky outfit of the hero of legend. Clear Classic Mode as Toon Link
Triforce Slash (Toon Link) Triforce Slash Trophy (Toon Link).png Toon Link's Final Smash. Hit an enemy with the light emanating from the Triforce mark on his hand to initiate the move. The enemy will be trapped within the Triforce and be unable to move--Toon Link will then rush in close and carve up his foe at lightning speed. The final blow will break the Triforce prison and send the opponent off the screen. Clear All-Star Mode as Toon Link
Outset Link Outset Link Trophy.png Link in his traditional clothing. He wears a blue, V-neck, long-sleeved top with a lobster pattern, coordinated with slender orange pants. It makes you think that, even on his home, Outset Island, Link was quite the fashion leader, and suggests that he may have changed into his green hero's clothing somewhat grudgingly.

Toon Link SSB3DS Toon Link Trophy.png ToonLinkTrophyWiiU.png This cartoonish version of Link is how he appeared in The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker and a few other titles. In Smash Bros., he uses moves much like his older, taller counterpart. His small size gives him extra speed, though, so take advantage of that to send your foes flying. Clear Classic Mode as Toon Link
Toon Link (Alt.) ToonLinkAltTrophy3DS.png ToonLinkAltTrophyWiiU.png Toon Link's Bomb move doesn't deal much damage, but the blast radius is pretty big. His bombs can be thrown in all directions, damaging or distracting your foes. Also, his up special Spin Attack keeps him airborne longer than Link's version. For some launching power, use the side smash attack. Clear All-Star Mode as Toon Link

Wii U Version

Triforce Slash (Toon Link) TriforceSlashToonLinkTrophyWiiU.png For Toon Link's Final Smash, a ray of light emanates from his hand, and whomever the light touches gets trapped in the Triforce. While they're defenseless, Toon Link strikes at foes repeatedly and then launches them a great distance. Just be sure to time the Final Smash well-if the ray of light doesn't touch anyone, nothing happens. At all. Clear All-Star mode as Toon Link

However, instead of having Proxi speak for him on his behalf, his younger sister Aryll speaks for him using the Pirate's Charm.[1] One of Toon Link's moves is flipping in the air and over some enemies as if he has the Roc's Feather. While in the air, Toon Link can attack enemies with the Deku Leaf.
