Link has high jumps and two solid projectiles that deal good damage.
However, his horizontal movement is fairly slow, and his arrow has a very high startup lag. His best projectile, the Boomerang, has limited range. Due to his larger hurtbox, he is placed lower than Young Link on the tier list.
Slashes twice with the Master Sword. The first is a horizontal slash with a small hitbox and deals moderate damage and knockback, while the second is an arched slash that encircles Link's head and its hitbox is considerably larger.
Throws a Boomerang that travels across the floor and then returns through the air, making it able to hit opponents both in front and above Link. The returning trait of the boomerang is unique among other projectiles. Trying to launch a boomerang right after another will cancel the older boomerang and neglect its returning property.
Utilizes the Down Thrust, shoving the Master Sword downwards and damaging opponents directly below him. On contact with an opponent, Link will bounce upwards slightly. Oddly, he will get a bigger boost if Link is player two in the match.
