Huh,I could have told you I hated Toon Link 5 years ago. Not surprising. I am a bit surprise to hear Miyamoto admitting it though.

1. Wind Waker was a breath of fresh air... or, fresh water... or salt water, you get the point.
2. One thing I hate is an email with an entire sentence or question in the subject line. Why not name it "Miyamoto on Toon Link Reception" and save the details for the message / thread itself? What happened to the ability to write short but meaningful headlines?
3. Toon Link was made for cell-shading, and just looks weird in that non-cell-shaded pic above.

I always liked Toon Link. I enjoyed all the games he appeared in as well, including Brawl. But, you know, not everyone likes change.

he'd be a fool to think that everyone loved the Toon Link design, and Miyamoto's no fool... so there you go.

He is speaking to me too. I absolutely detest Toon Link and everything thing he stands for! I wish he would just die already and I hope never to see him in a game again. I mean - why Nintendo to you have to go ahead and spoil eveything: Zelda, Link, Hyrule everything, with this gross and ugly representation?!

? He's adorable. :3 And quite comical too. It's funny how he gets abused in his games. XD

I personally value flexibility in the Zelda series: it's better to think of the Zelda franchise as a loose collection of related myths and legends with some mysterious connections and repetitions across time. I don't want one unified story across all the games, nor do I want one unified look for Link or Hyrule. Wind Waker was wonderful precisely because it gave us a completely different vision of Hyrule long after the other games, submerged under water, and a completely different kind of Link to go along with it.

I honestly think that the games Toon Link has starred in (Wind Waker, Minish Cap, Spirit Tracks) are better than games like Ocarina of Time and A Link to the Past.

Anyone who doesn't think Ocarina of Time and Twillight Princess are the outstanding Zelda games are just plain wrong.

I like every Link except the creepy one in the CD-i games. I don't see why people can be irritated by someone like Toon Link. Get over it, people!

You my friend are deeply flawed as a human being. I feel sorry for you.

It did seem strange at first I'll admit. Wind Waker was such an awesome game anyway.
I started to like the design after a while. However I still prefer the look of him in Ocarina and Twilight Princess.
