  • Like every other veteran, Toon Link now appears much more vibrant and his appearance is more based off his appearance in his games with a small realistic touch.

Special Moves

Name Damage Description
Neutral Special Hero’s Bow 4% uncharge, 12% fully charged Fires an arrow straight forward. If the button is held down, Toon Link charges the arrow by draws farther back on the bow, increasing damage and range. Arrows are much floatier than Link's, making them very useful even with no charge, but are also notably slower.
Alternate 1 - - -
Alternate 2 - - -
Side Special Boomerang 8% (near), 5% (middle), 3% (return) Tosses a boomerang that flies forward to hit opponents, and returns to the user while still being able to hit foes. Can be thrown at a variety of angles with an analog/circle pad, and 3 main directions with a D-pad. Close up, it can be used to follow up with another attack, and on the way back, can disrupt foes (Ex. If Toon Link gets grabbed) and turn the tide of battle albeit with weak knockback.
Alternate 1 - - -
Alternate 2 - - -
Up Special Spin Attack Uncharged: 1% (hits 1-9), 3% (final). Charged: 1-2% (hits 1-9), 4-5% (final). Aerial: 4% (hit 1), 2% (hit 2-4), 4% (hit 5) Toon Link sticks his blade out and spins around rapidly, hitting opponents multiple times before knocking them in different directions. Useful for catching rolls. The grounded version can be charged for more damage, while the aerial version gives him vertical and horizontal ascension.
Alternate 1 - - -
Alternate 2 - - -
Down Special Bomb 4% when connecting on an opponent, 4-6% with explosion (weak throw), 7-8% with explosion (strong throw) Pulls out a bomb. The bomb has a set time limit before it explodes, but it can be thrown at opponents from a distance. The bomb itself deals less damage than Link's bombs, but the explosion is much larger, and deals more damage then Link's bombs. Bombs will bounce off of shields, and can be picked up by foes. If the bomb connects with an opponent, the explosion does not harm the user. Bombs seem unaffected by rage. This is arguably Toon Link's best move to set up combos.
Alternate 1 - - -
Alternate 2 - - -
Final Smash Triforce Slash 1% (first hit), 3% (hits 2-15), 2% (hit 16), 15% (hit 17) Toon Link sheathes his sword, flashes the Triforce symbol on his left hand, shoots a beam of light to stun foes, then rushes in and deals a flurry of slashes to them, trapping them in an image of the Triforce, ending in a wind-up attack that breaks the Triforce prison and launches them. Once the opponent is caught in range of the first hit, they are trapped and can not escape until the finishing blow. Can hit multiple opponents, but all non-trapped opponents get knocked out after the penultimate hit. Whereas Link's Triforce Slash can hit the other side of Final Destination, Toon Link's range is much smaller. Try using a projectile to stun the opponent before using this attack. After this move ends, Toon Link gets a little jump for some minor vertical height, in case he used it too far off the edge.
