He would win. His SSBB version is able to withstand missiles from Snake and lasers from fox without flinching, he has a magic sword, he can survive full powered blasts from Lucario, etc. And his Final Smash is awesome.

Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, maybe cause they're not Nintendo or Sega characters? Also, I'm pretty sure you have to be a video game character to be in Super Smash Bros. I don't really know.

In Twililght Princess, he is trained by some kind of spirit. In Wind Waker he is trained by someone (forget his name).

Haven't played in a while, but didn't you learn combos throughout the game?

I believe in Wind Waker, it is Ocha.

When he retrieves the Master Sword, he gets the fighting skills/experience of every owner before him.....which at least would give him the edge in experience, nevermind his training from a long, long dead knight. Dunno about actual fighting skills.

Anyways, since the version from SSBB is the same Link from Twilight Princess, I will go with him, as the TP Link had a secondary Wolf form as well as some seriously dangerous weapons. Plus, the Magic Armor (assuming he's carrying around a bit of money) negates any damage he would take.

no just slash slash slash.

all you get is weps and suits.

Leonardo, of course.

I don't follow. How is 'slash slash slash" any different from Leonardo's "slash slash slash"? It's the same thing. The main point of using a sword is to cut stuff.

And yes, you do get weapons and suits....like I said. Thank you for reiterating my point....?

Except you do learn new moves in the Zelda games. In TP, you get regularly taught new techniques by the undead knight (including parries and instant-kill quick draws), and in Wind Waker you also get taught a few techniques by Ocha.

Well, sorry for mistaking your comment towards me, I thought you were responding to my post.

Link wins. He strong enough to double jump, he is able to withstand missiles from snake, has about 26 hearts, etc.

Smash Bros. isn't canon, so we can't use what occurs there as a basis for fact in battle threads.

I'm gonna assume you mean "I don't think Link can beat a Ninja", as saying "don't and can't" would mean you think he could.

Anyways, yes, I do believe so, as his armor and weapons give him the edge. A bomb+arrow combo would put Leo out of commission.

If he didn't have the instincts of a talented fighter.....then how did he not only manage to hold his own against Ganondorf (a dude with possibly hundreds of years worth of experience) but also impale him through the head?

I mean, sure, Zelda was using the light arrow, but even staying in the same field as him during a sword battle is impressive.

During the battle, Link was distracting Ganondorf-not Zelda. She was the one doing the real damage to him with the Light Arrows.

I agree with you about the OoT version of Link, he was probably the most skilled of them all.

Who, according to Sakurai (dude who made Smash Bros), is the version from Twilight Princess. The OP might have also meant the Adult Link-which could mean it could be Link from any of the Smash Bros games, in which case that changes his abilities a bit. More specification, IMO, is needed here.....

Besides, using the fighting game argument doesn't work all that well, as any character can take numerous grenades, rockets, etc., or can be KO'd by one punch from...say...Jigglypuff.

Am I making sense, or am I just rambling now?

I get it, I'm just saying all the characters in super smash are able to do things they can't in their own series.

I guess. But, in a game as free-form as Smash, skill is a factor as to what a character can or can't do.

For example-a good player might be able to take something extremely powerful (Bombs, grenades, Super Sonic, etc.,) and survive, while a less-skilled player could die from being tapped or something.

 

Their durability is definitely increased in Smash, but since it revolves around "King Of The Hill" style gameplay, the could actually take anything and keep going-they just get knocked off the stage.
