almost nothing in this thread has advanced a serious discussion about the issue.

hey, some of us tried, but when the majority doesn't want to be mature about it, there's not much that can be done. no online forum has a chance in hell of advancing a major IRL-affecting issue like this, but if one person's mind can be opened by something that's been said here about the topic, it's worth it for me to have spoken my mind IMO.

No, Link should not be a girl.
Just because Link looks pretty in some gender swapping fan art pictures, doesn't mean he should.

HoF status for arguments like this maybe. It's a great point, just kind of staggering that it needed to be made.

I would say HoF status for arguments like that not because 'they needed to be said', but because they didn't. Putting forth the assumption that all of us in favor of the idea would want to see Link in female form for the sole reason of 'because he looks pretty'? Not cool. :/

@kyuubikid213: No offense, but if you think that whatever 'they' would do to Link in female form hasn't already been done to him in male form, you're sorely mistaken. I fail to see how it's a point of contention.

And bravery, a strong sense of justice, selflessness, and perseverance, whether it is right or not, cannot be associated with a woman character?

I knew someone would say that. These have been considered traditionally more masculine in society. Is it right for those traits to automatically be associated with men? That is up for debate. I don't think so. However, if you look at any qualities of a traditional male hero, those have been central. All I am saying is that Link is in my opinion a masculine character, not just in the dirty, macho, in your face type of way.

And they haven't been the qualities of female heroes as well? I don't quite get what you're trying to say. A sense of justice, perseverance, and selflessness has been a part of both male and female protagonists as well as historical heroic figures, it comes with the territory. any hero is going to boil down to those three qualities at the very least, otherwise nothing would get done and no one would be saved.

This thread is very slowly beginning to make my head explode. There are people who are taking it seriously, and these people I thank for giving the overall topic of gender issues in video games the respect it deserves, because it's something I feel strongly about. as for those of you who use these topics as cheap vehicles to spout sexist jokes and behave like fools, I can only hope that someday you understand and eventually come to regret what you're doing right now.

More to the point I think a playable female character set in the Zelda universe could be very cool. But to call that character "Link" is to forever bastardize a beloved character by saying anyone by that name can claim to be the legendary hero.

... so? i thought that was the point of Link being reincarnated through time, it's always someone named Link who winds up the legendary hero. I don't see it as bastardization, I see it as 'something different for the series'.

thelastlemming wrote:

It would also call into question the gender of all of Link's "ancestors." Say it's not so, but with a scrap of evidence fan-boys minds run a muck. :p

again... so what? still not seeing where the impossibility lies in some of Link's hero ancestors being female. It's a 50/50 shot in each incarnation as to which gender Link winds up being, after all. :3

Link didn't have an army, so he saved it in the only way he could. Zelda is a member of a royal family and can order around a bunch of knights to kick Ganon's .

Yeah, because that worked so well in Twilight Princess. Look, I'm not talking about things being 'degrading' or not, I'm talking equal-opportunity here. Link is always one person, and the way the stories are written, he has the ability to get through the game on his own to deliver that final blow himself (with the help of a few friends here and there along the way). I'd like to see a story written in this manner for Zelda someday to let her be the hero, to get her off her duff and saving her own kingdom for once is all.

if zelda were a man, then he would probably end up being an a-hole about it, because it's very likely to me it seems that zelda would have a lot of pride in his head, so if you ended up saving him, he'd probably say:
"took you long enough" or "ppssshhh! i let him kidnap me!" or "hey sexy lady!"

as long as he's not saying 'well excuuuuuuuuuse me, Link!', i guess we can't complain.

that said, if you're going to troll like that, this kinda isn't the thread for it. please be serious. :/

@Tasuki: What are you talking about? You can't transfer WiiWare/VC titles between two Wii systems, not on your own anyway — that's been a huge point of contention between Wii, DSi, and 3DS owners and Nintendo from the get-go. You'd have to negotiate with Nintendo to do it for you, and they still very well could be all 'nope, your Wii still works, not doing it for you' and leave it at that. There's also the fact that if the OP has played any games on their Wii that use the WFC (Brawl, MHT, etc.) they can't transfer their save data between systems, so they have to start alllllll over again from scratch if they just up and purchase a new system (yet another point of contention between fans and Nintendo).

@Tasuki: If the OP has any WiiWare purchased and such, it's not an easy thing to have to switch between two different Wiis in order to play their Wii/GC games and all their downloadables. As for the Wii U, it's not out yet, so that's not really going to help the OP play the games they want to play.

This actually sounds like an awesome beginning to a Zelda RTS. Link fails to appear to save the kingdom, Zelda has to save it herself. But, rather than face Ganon with only one Triforce she decides to use the Hylian army instead.

What does Zelda need an army for? Link's never needed one to save Hyrule/Termina/(insert place that needs saving here), so why should she hide behind one? :/

hey now, if we're talking about men in skirt-like clothing, it doesn't get more manly than these guys:
Untitled

also, don't forget the Romans, the Egyptians, the ancient Chinese, and other peoples typically had their males wearing non-pants around on a daily basis. some even had their men as pampered and makeup'd as their women. That doesn't make them any less 'manly' :/

i like where this is going :3

to be absolutely honest, though — I wouldn't mind it if Link was a girl. I'd like it more if the person (male, female, or otherwise) in the 'Zelda' position actually took some responsibility for their kingdom and saved it themselves, though; i think that would be more revolutionary to the series than switching around the gender of the main protagonist.
