gender neutral or sex neutral?
you can be gender neutral as male or female. gender just describes behaviour or am i missing soemthing here? (not native english speaker)

You're closer than anyone else has been in this thread. Link is technically masculine in behavior, but as he rarely brings up actual gender in any debate, he can be considered agender. Again Skyward Sword is the main counter-argument, and even that is questionable.

I COME UPON THEE WITH RIGHTEOUS FURY FROM THAT OF THE SMASH FANDOM! ILLOGICAL STATEMENTS SHALT BE MET WITH ALL OF MINE RAGE... until I do something else. No sense in being grumpy.

Yeah, I don't understand why people can't accept Link is a male character. Am I against playing as a female? No, of course not, but if I'm playing as a girl I'd rather it be Zelda or another character who is already said to be female rather than messing with who Link is supposed to be.

Pretty much my opinion on this matter too.

Nintendo and most Japanese companies never really had their male characters with the typical features that most westerners associate with males (with a few exceptions like Dragon Ball Z and Fist of the North Star). How Japan sees as an attractive male is different than how most westerners see as an attractive male.

If you compare Link with the typical male hero character in anime/manga, he looks like he can easily fit with them.

Personally, the Link i've always wanted to see is from the Twilight Princess game box or from Smash Bros Brawl. He looks EPIC in that image. Too bad Nintendo never made Link look like that :(

Nintendo needs to make the Zelda series dark. And by that I mean Majora's Mask. The game was light hearted on the surface, but it was really dark when you got to the core of the game.

For some reason, I get a feeling that all of the sudden people have somehow had their memory wiped regarding JP developers and their love for pretty-boy and androgynous male characters.

This has already been covered ad nauseum over in the main Zelda U thread.

However, I'll just say that I find it mildly hilarious that everybody has made such a big deal about Link's androgyny in the Zelda U trailer, but yet I haven't seen a single person mention how feminine she appears in Hyrule Warriors:

If Link had a beard and/or mustache, we probably wouldn't even be discussing this.

Most people don't really care as much about Hyrule Warriors as they do about a main series Zelda game :)

I would have really love to see Link look as he did in the Twilight Princess concept art.

Gender neutral that would be a strange twist for the series nothing story changing (maybe) but a weird way to go and imagine how all the other nintendo characters would feel around him, her, it the next smash could be awkward. I'd rather have boy link who we are all used to or female for something different but gender neutral how would he use the bathroom?

Yo Square Enix I'm really happy for you and Imma let you finish milking but.. Final Fantasy is one of the most overdone series of all time!...ALL TIME!!
Also remember 7/18/2011 R.I.P. MegaMan Legends 3 we'll miss you...

@8BitSamurai omfg

btw what is gender neutral anyway? isnt nearly every behaviour somehow related or rated as male or female?

at least there won't be any problem with link's voice. CAUSE THAT THING NEVER FREAKING SPEAKS !!!
