>>67148856>but most Links don't actually hook up with their Zelda
I wouldn't say that.>LoZ/AoL
He ends up with A Zelda, possibly two. The one in AoL definitely kisses him for one. That's not PROOF they fucked, but c'mon, be reasonable.>ALTTP/OOS/OOA/LA
It takes until OOS/OOA to be in your face, but she directly kisses Link and blushes.>OOT/MM
This one probably didn't end up with Zelda. They never have a romance and his descendent is a farm boy.>WW/PH
He very clearly ended up with Zelda/Tetra and founded New Hyrule, one of the least disputable ones.>MC/FS
They're childhood friends but talk little, no explicit romance with anyone in this so you can't say either way.>TP
Absolutely didn't. They don't interact and Link is chasing after Midna at the end, there's no chance here.>ST
This one has romance, very kiddy romance of holding hands and blushing, but it's there enough for me to give it a 'yeah in a few years.'>SS
This is THE most obvious romance Zelda, you have to really stretch to dispute it with everything they say and do. They go on to found Hyrule together.>ALBTW/TFH
Yeah this one doesn't have any romance either, not with Zelda and not with anyone, but this Link does interact with her. It's another 'who knows.'>BOTW
Poor Mipha, but Zelda has written diary entries that point to pudding feelings, and Link is stuck under her big butt whenever he can be. Unless they swerve hard in BoTW 2 it's hard to deny.
So let me count, 6 Links end up with Zelda, 2 definitely don't, and 2 could go either way. It's absolutely not a 'most Zeldas don't end up with Link' situation. It's not even half and half, 60% of Links fuck Zelda unless you're the kind of shipper that needs bareback at the end of the game to prove it.
