Super Smash Bros. 4
Toon Link is a playable character in the Super Smash Bros. series, appearing in conjunction with a "primary" Link. His design is based off Link's more recent appearance from The Wind Waker, Four Swords, Four Swords Adventures, The Minish Cap, Phantom Hourglass, and Spirit Tracks with an added "airbrush shading" as opposed to his normal cel-shading.
In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Toon Link is a secret character that can be unlocked in various ways: 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, or more specific, Tetra's Ship from The Wind Waker. He is very similar to his older counterpart, even having the same Final Smash as him. It is generally believed that he replaced Young Link from Super Smash Bros. Melee.
Toon Link is confirmed to return in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. 4. Aside from retaining The Wind Waker-specific equipment, little is known about him at this time.
Unlike Young Link in Melee, Toon Link has three alternate colors that resemble the Four Swords clones (Red, Blue, and Purple). He also has an alternate color that resembles the first The Legend of Zelda model. Much like regular Link, his last costume is a dark version of Toon Link, which looks like Shadow Link. His shield color changes as well, as it is an inverted version of the original Toon Link's shield.
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 than adult Link's. The 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 the Boomerang from The Wind Waker, 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.
|Name||Image||Description||How to Unlock|
|Toon Link||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)||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||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.||Clear Target Smash Level 5 With 10 Characters|
