Link, also known as the Hero of Time, was one of the incarnations of the hero that save Hyrule countless of times throughout the ages. He faced Ganondorf, sealing him in the future and preventing his rise in the present

Orphaned during the Hyrulian Civil War, the young Link was taken in and raised Kokiri and the Great Deku Tree. Unlike the Kokiri, however, Link aged and did not own a guardian fairy. One day he was awoken by Navi, a fairy who told him that the Great Deku Tree wished to speak to him. Once he arrived at the ancient tree, it explained that it was cursed by Ganondorf who tried to take the Spiritual Stone which would give him access to the triforce and the Sacred Realm and, once it refused, cursed the Deku Tree with a monster called Queen Gohma. After vanquishing the beast the dying tree begged Link to save Hyrule.

Link traveled to Hyrule Castle and planned with Zelda to defeat the ambitious Ganondorf before moving onto the Gorons and Zoras, receiving their respective Spiritual Stones aswell. Once he returned to the Castle he found Zelda fleeing from Ganondorf who tossed him the Ocarina of Time before riding off. After unlocking the passage to the Sacred Realm, Link awoke a young adult and was informed by the Sage of Light, Rauru, that Ganondorf had conquered and slain the other Sages. After awakening, the new Sages and sealing Ganondorf in the sacred realm Link returned to the past and stopped Ganondorf's schemes before they came to fruition.

After Navi disappeared, Link traveled the world to find her, but soon found himself in another land known as Termina which was threatened by Skull Kid who was possed by Majora's Mask. Having undone the curses that Skull Kid cast, Link freed him of the mask's hold and returned to Hyrule.

Years later, Link died prematurely with regrets that he couldn't pass his knowledge to the new generation. As a spirit, he managed to pass his knowledge onto the new incarnation of the hero before finally moving onto the afterlife.

In one timeline, Link died during the final battle against Ganon. Without the Hero of Time to stop him, Ganon was allowed to do as he wished, corrupting the Sacred Realm into the Dark World and mobilising an army which he used to attack Hyrule. Ganon's army was repelled by the Knights of Hyrule, however, and the Demon King himself was sealed into the Dark World by the Seven Sages.

Battle vs. Kelsier (by Leolab)

Link, the Hero of Time, finds himself in the city of Luthadel at night. Unsure of how he got there and blinded by the mists, he readies his sword and shield and starts walking carefully. Kelsier, The Survivor of Hathsin, spots him walking from his vantage point on the rooftops, and flips a coin into the streets. Link, startled by the noise, looks around and sees Kelsier landing in front of him. Kelsier challenges Link, believing him to be a noble. Link, being mute, puts his guard up, and Kelsier pulls out his allomanic daggers.

Kelsier moves first, Pushing on Link’s shield, unbalancing him and moving in. Link manages to raise his shield in time, and is surprised when the dagger, made of glass, doesn’t shatter. He starts dueling Kelsier, Link’s plows being Pushed or Pulled aside while Kelsier’s strikes get blocked by Link’s shield. Kelsier gets bored, and Pushes strongly on Link’s shield, sending both of them flying. Link gets crushed into the dirt while Kelsier hits the rooftops and is shrouded by mist. Link readies his bow, running through the streets and shooting at Kelsier’s shadow on the rooftops. Kelsier skids to a halt as he finds what he is looking for: three glass vials, with metal suspended in the fluid of each. He downs all three, topping off his Steel and Iron, and adding a more deadly metal: Atium. Feeling refreshed, he looks down in time to see Link fire his last arrow into his shoulder. Kelsier recoils and pulls it out, cursing himself for not bringing Pewter. He spots Link on the roof with him, and starts Burning Atium, which lets him accurately predict Link’s moves. He quickly dodges Link’s attacks and Pulls the Master Sword from his hand, catching it in his uninjured hand and turning it on the Hero of Time.

He uses the Atium to maneuver around Link’s shield and dodge it, stabbing him in the leg with the sword. Link falls, and Kelsier moves in for the kill when his Atium runs out. Sensing the change, Link lashes out with his shield, stunning Kelsier and knocking the sword away. Kelsier Pulls on the sword, while Link crouches. Kelsier notices a red orb in Link’s hands and, confused, watches him shove it into the ground and unleash a fire storm that burns everything around him. Kelsier, badly burned, is in no state to react when the Master Sword, still coming in with the force of Kelsier’s Pull, gets lodged in his neck. Link walks up to Kelsier, pulls out the Master Sword, and drinks a blue potion. Fully healed, he creates a ball of green light that transforms into a pillar around him, teleporting him back to an earlier location.

Battle vs. Cervantes de Leon (by Leolab)

Cervantes, ship full of plunder from the ship of the slain crusader, finds himself on a lake of an unknown land. He disembarks his ship and enters a hut. A man with a hat tries to sell him a fishing rod for use in his pond, but Cervantes eats his soul. He is then blinded by a flash of green light; Link appears on the other side of the pond, fresh from his battle with a powerful Mistborn and picks up the arrows he stashed there. He then spots Cervantes and his kill. Enraged, Link notches an arrow and fires at Cervantes.

It misses Cervantes, but Link is already rushing forward, Master Sword and Hylian Shield in hand. Cervantes laughs, and fires his pistol, which goes through Link’s shield and hits him on the leg. Wounded, Link starts dueling Cervantes, who eventually get in a hit in with Nirvana. Bleeding profusely, Link weakly attempts to bash Cervantes in with the Hylian Shield. Cervantes shrugs off the blow, but it serves its purpose: Link, having charged a red orb of light, thrusts it into the ground, unleashing Din’s Fire. His wounds cauterized from the extreme heat, Link walks over to where Cervantes lies.

Cervantes gets up and attacks Link. Severely weakened, he is in no state to resist when the Master Sword is knocked out of his hands by Acheron, Cervantes’s longsword. Cervantes then impales the helpless hero, throwing him up in the air, and then shooting him back to earth, completing his Critical Finish. He then eats Link’s soul and, fully healed, returns to his ship to try and find a way home.
