I didnt make the thread... And I'm not sure if Link would win, but he's definitely cooler then Cap.
Link has gone up against supposed gods (Ganon) but Caps gone up against massive brutes, like Hulk, and came out victorious.
Link has incredible swordmanship, and good use of a shield; also a massive inventory of weapons (tips the scales to his side a little), is the wielder of the Triforce of courage, is the Hero of Time, and can transform into... a goron, a deku scrub, a zora, and a wolf.
Cap has amazing martial arts skills, is a strategic/tactical genious, has peak human strength, speed, reflexes, and has mastered the use of his indestructible shield.
As I said before Cap's gone up against opponenents where it seems there is no hope for Cap, but he comes out victorious.
Colt Python says:
"Cap fought the Hulk hand to hand and he doesn't even have super strenght I'm pretty sure he can take down an elf."
Not an elf that is, seriously, invulnerable....
he uses Nayru's Love......he's invincible. Then he casts Din's Fire and Cap is lit on fire......or, god forbid, he uses the Ocarina to go back in time and just kill Cap when he didn't even have the serum.
