Young Link, known in Japan as Child Link (こどもリンク), is the child version of the adult Link. He is notably smaller. Being brave and gentle like his adult counterpart, he is often trying to save innocent people from danger. He was a playable character in Super Smash Flash but, along with InuYasha, Mr. Incredible, Mega Man X, Blade, and Blue was cut from the roster of Super Smash Flash 2.

Character Description

In Ocarina of Time, Link lived in the Kokiri forest for the majority of his life until the Great Deku Tree called him forth by sending him his first companion fairy called Navi. Eventually, Link finds out that the Great Deku Tree had been poisoned by a magical wizard by the name of Ganondorf and heads out of the woods, leaving the forest behind him for the first time. Upon finding the Temple of Time, Link realizes that the door leading to the Master Sword is shut and that he must gather all three spiritual stones in order to open the door. When Link finally gathers all three stones and grabs a hold of the Master Sword, he is stuck in time due to the fact that when he pulled the Master Sword from its pedestal, he was too young to become the Hero of Time. Link was stuck holding the Master Sword in his hand for seven years in which during that time, he became an Adult. It was at that time that Young Link referred to the Link seven years in the past while Adult Link meant the Link from seven years into the future.
