Link returns yet again to the Super Smash Bros. franchise in Super Smash Bros 5. He aesthetically looks more like a mixture between his Hyrule Warriors and his Zelda Wii U design. His move set is mostly the same with only a few small changes.

Changes from Smash 4Edit

  • The range of Link's boomerang and bombs has increased
  • Spin Attack takes longer to fully charge but does more damage when done so
  • Link's dash attack now does slightly less damage
