Zelda is a playable veteran starter character and one of two representatives of The Legend of Zelda universe on the starting roster alongside Link. She has the ability to transform into Sheik to gain access to a second set of moves. Her custom sprite appearance was the work of user SemiJuggalo.

Zelda is ranked 15th on the tier list. Zelda has very powerful moves which strike very fast and allow her to KO her opponents quickly. Zelda also has the very powerful Transform move which not only deals damage, but can insta-KO under the right conditions. She can also use her Lightning Kicks to get cheap insta-KOs as well.

Despite this, Zelda is one of the slowest characters in the game, has no projectiles, and has limited range, giving her a terrible offensive game. She also suffers against sword users and projectile-oriented characters for the same reasons.

Still, Zelda has a very strong defensive game, and can transform into Sheik in order to counteract her weaknesses. Because of this, she ranks in the dead-center of the tier list.


Attack Description Damage Image
Standard attack Zelda raises her arms covered in a blue magic and then thrusts them forward with a damaging shine coming from her palms. Keeping the attack button pressed prevents Zelda from shining her palms and makes her enter an odd levitation-like animation frame. 5% SSF Zelda standard attack
Side attack Zelda conjures a glowing orb that rapidly expands from her palms, damaging opponents with it. Keeping the attack button pressed causes Zelda to perform an upwards Lightning Kick, a kick that Zelda delivers with a shine coming from her heel. 4% SSF Zelda side attack

Down attack This attack is a combination of two attacks: Nayru's Love and Transform. The first has Zelda covering herself in an octahedron-like blue barrier that hits opponents multiple times and the second comes once the barrier dissipates, leaving Sheik behind. 5% SSF Zelda - Sheik down attack

  • Zelda's sprite set for Super Smash Flash was at one point considered to be reused back for her return in Super Smash Flash 2, but this never came into fruition.
