Also it was mentioned in SS that the battle between Link and Ganondorf is destined to continue for all time: "Though this is not the end. My hate... never perishes. It is born anew in a cycle with no end! I will rise again! Those like you... Those who share the blood of the goddess and the spirit of the hero... They are eternally bound to this curse. An incarnation of my hatred shall ever follow your kind, dooming them to wander a blood-soaked sea of darkness for all time!". That was Demise, an example of reincarnation in Zelda resulting in a different character which could be applied to say a female Link:P Link talking or not talking has nothing to do with his lack of personality, he just seems to go along with things for the sake of it. I never understood in Ocarina why he wasn't intrested in his parents when he was talking to the Deku tree. Link never appears exactly the same except in direct sequels to a story, but there is still a strong physical similarity, just like there is a strong physical similarity between both Demise and Ganondorf. Also we encounter D at the end of his life, not knowing how much he would have physically changed since birth, and both have a habit of changing their physiology, who knows where that would eventually lead? You do know the Deku tree was dying right? I don't think he had the luxury of telling Link his entire life story. arronishere wrote: Zelda games have a Link, a Zelda and Ganon (I believe he is the same throughout the series). Already presented two instances of reincarnation on the villains part, OoT, and 4 swords. Still the same gender, same as Link and Zelda Aviator wrote: Give players the option. Ugh no. That leads to Goku/Reggie/Batman/Every single videogame character for smash bros. If you want the option you should be making the game yourself and then you'll understand how truly difficult giving the people that option is. Also it sucks being required to play through a game a second time when you've missed a reasonably different portion of story due to picking a small aesthetic detail. I'm out. In response to the thread title: "What if Link is gender neutral?" People will b&^%$ and moan especially when they get what they want. So don't give it to them.
