HW Young Link

Young link in SSBDevastation

Young Link has only three days! Young Link debuted in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, in 1998, so he is fought in the third level of the All-Star Mode.

How to unlock

  • Win 80 VS matches.
  • Complete both Classic and Arena mode at difficult Hard or higher.
  • Have him join you in the story mode.

With the exception of the third way, Young Link must be defeated in Clock Town with Deku Palace theme in.


In Devastation, Young Link himself isn't playable: he can only switch between his masks. When being Deku Link, he's faster than his other incarnations and he becomes also floatier and lighter. Goron Link is the heaviest and slowest incarnation of the trio but also the strongest. Zora Link is the middle character without outstanding weight, speed or power. Each one of these characters have a different swimming approach: Deku Link can jump five times, then he sinks. Goron Link can't just swim. Zora Link never sinks. Young Link has an important and unique mechanic: Magic Power. When attacking with standard moves, Young Link gets some magic power, which makes the special moves about 25% stronger. Using special moves make Young Link lose his magic power.
