Alright now I know Link already has one, but it's old so am deciding to make a new if that's ok. Plus this one will actually showcase some feats for Link rather than people arguing over gameplay mechanics of what did/does/didn't happen or what have you. Now you're probably gonna tell me...
"But Wolf, the manga isn't canon!"
To which I reply
"Ok...so you'd rather argue over gameplay mechanics rather than at least looking at some scans that actually show feats? At least with the manga you don't get confused about it..."
Besides the Mangas do follow the story anyway so why not use them, sure perhaps there are some differences...but overall the stories are roughly the same give or take.
Now this isn't to say that everything will show all the items and so forth, so on that note you would really have to use the games for the items/what they do...but still this will at least alleviate some game mechanic arguments(hopefully). Anyway lets kick off this respect thread with!
Edit: Here is Samus' respect thread. http://www.comicvine.com/forums/off-topic-5/samus-metroid-respect-thread-1509109/
After taking his Uncle's sword and shield, he fights against a huge shadow knight. He evades the spiked ball but gets choked by the chain and swung around, though defeating the knight with a simple pot knocking off the head.
Here Agahnim takes out 2 knights with his dark magic, before then attacking Link the same but him surviving.
Here you see Link(who has the Master Sword at this point) easily cut down some dark knights.
Here Link blocks Agahnim's dark magic and sends it right back at him, defeating the dark wizard.
Here Link takes on a 3 headed dragon and with one swing of the Master Sword defeats it.
Link vs Ganon, here Link battles Ganon, he blocks a strike from Ganon's trident with the Master Sword and then cuts his hand causing him to bleed. Link gets burned by the blood(Ganon's blood is acid) but doesn't falter and attacks again and thus sets him up for a Silver Arrow.
Here Link goes to retrieve his sword, but is confronted by monsters however he shows some agility here flipping over the big one to get his sword back.
Here Link sends a Dynamite Kick to an enemy!(Lol) With enough force to send him flying and crashing into a tree.
Here Link dodges a thrown spear, before defeating his enemies and kicking down a door.
Link vs Tail, here Link fights off against a boss, his body too tough for normal sword strikes, he dodges his attacks though. Link then attacks the eye, but then he is sent falling through the floor crashing hard but quickly being able to get up and defend himself from Tail's strike. He then saves himself before going over a ledge, picking himself back up and does a spin attack on Tail killing him.
Here Link fights against a big guy, avoiding arrows shot at him and showing off more agility before killing his enemy with one sword slash.
Upon entering the 2nd dungeon he faces off against more enemies, even grabbing one and slamming him down before showing more agility and killing another enemy while also killing the one he was fighting. He then found bombs! :D
Here Link fights a giant, getting thrown into a wall hard enough to shatter it and then getting punched in the face but withstanding it. He then blocks with his shield bombs thrown at him before throwing a bomb himself, he then bats away the giant's hand before finishing him off with a sword strike.
Here Link runs carrying a girl while avoiding a group of enemies, even tripping one as he runs. He then stops to fight, lighting some bombs and then engaging them in combat(am I seeing some sort of H2H from Link there? Lol). He then takes a club right in the face, falling over a cliff yet appears fine later.
Here Link fights against those he fought shown previously, he also tricks them into thinking he can't move thanks to the needles but then notes that they can't get through his boots after finishing them off with some bombs.
Here Link fights against some sort of shadow creatures, that dodges all his attacks even his bombs and disappears to surprise him. Link then improvises to get better footing by using his shield, before then doing a spin attack to defeat his enemy.
Here Link fights in the water against a large fish, he defeats it....but his sword breaks.
Here Link fights against Karuna, with a broken sword....he also fights with some kicks using the sword mostly as a defensive weapon while dodging the large guy's strikes. Of course Link is the sent plummeting over an edge after Karuna cuts through the ground.
Link vs Karuna round 2, after getting a new sword they fight again. However this time Link beats him, even cutting his sword in half.
Here Link fights a skeleton warrior, simple enough.
Here Link shows the sword beam attack while fighting against a group of enemies.
Just another showing of the sword beam.
Here Link fights against a giant cyclops. He dodges his attacks, blocking, utilizing some kicking with some sword attacks to bring him down.
Even while wounded he fights, here he seems to blitz three enemies killing them quickly.
Here Link fights against a skeleton and his bird, dodging the attacks and defeating him while then also using his shield to catch Felicia and then using a bomb to launch them to safety.
Here Link shows a little more agility while killing a snake/dragon thing.
Fighting against more enemies, even slugging one in the face.
Here Link is fighting a shadow creature, taking damage like being thrown into a wall and hit in the face. Yet he figures out the attack pattern being able to get in a hit, though that still doesn't take him out. His shield then gets knocked away from him though he finally defeats the creature by stabbing it in the eye.
Alright done for now, next up will be OoT and MM.
