* AdaptationExpansion: In the manga adaptation, he is given the BelatedBackstory of being the last survivor of a military village on Hyrule's border, and carries a boatload of SurvivorGuilt for being accidentally responsible for its destruction.
* AnArmAndALeg: Gets his arm cut off by King Bulbin in the manga. Thankfully, Ordona heals him by putting it back together.



* BirthmarkOfDestiny: As mentioned by the Sages, Link is shown to have a noticeable birthmark in the shape of the Triforce on his sword hand. It does get mentioned in the manga.

** In the manga, Link revels in the power of his wolf form after effortlessly killing a pack of Shadow Beasts and tells Midna to simply point him in the direction of her enemies so that he can go berserk on them.



* DarkAndTroubledPast: The manga gives him one. Link grew up in a military village tasked with protecting the border that separates Hyrule from the Gerudo Desert. One day, he and his friends went and pulled Galuf's sword, something that is forbidden by the village. When he pulled the sword (which only he could do as he bore the Triforce of Courage), he was attacked and dragged underground by the Hero's Shade. When he came to, his entire village was quite literally wiped off the face of the earth. Blaming himself for the village's destruction, he ran to Ordon Village to start a new life and tried his best to keep his past a secret.



* FailureHero: In the manga, Link initially considers himself unworthy of being the Hero Chosen by the Gods due to his past failures and mistakes.



* SuperSenses: As a wolf, he gains heightened senses that allow him to follow scent trails, find objects underground, and see in the dark. They also enable him to see the physical forms of spirits and ghosts. In the manga, this is called the "Eye of Twilight".

* AdaptationalVillainy: In the game, Midna was a huge jerk to Link, but it was mostly through malicious teasing and trolling (though she did throw some insults at him when he goofed up). In the manga, however, she is downright physically and verbally abusive to Link, treating him like an actual dog and even ''electrocuting'' him with her hair when he got too mouthy.

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: So far, his mouth doesn't appear to be carved up in the manga.



** In the very first chapter of the manga, he actually engages Midna in battle during his takeover of the Twilight Realm to steal her fragment of the Fused Shadow. It's not a spoiler to say that he won decisively.



* EvilChancellor: The game is vague on whatever position he had, only revealing that he served in the royal house, and was initially next in line for the throne, but in the manga he was explicitly the young aide of Midna's father, who had his eye on the throne the whole time.

* AGodAmI: His goal in the manga, apart from covering Hyrule in Twilight, is to obtain the pieces of the Fused Shadow and become even more powerful. This is despite him already attaining great magical power from Ganondorf.



* AdaptationalWimp: Gets hit with this in the manga. In the game, he was able to survive being impaled by the Sword of the Sages thanks to the Triforce of Power and managed to kill one of the sages with his bare hands before the sages banished him to the Twilight Realm as a last resort. In the manga, the sages impale him with the sword and ''immediately'' banish him to the Twilight Realm before he could retaliate.



* AdaptationalVillainy: While he was a villain in the game, it was clear that he was JustFollowingOrders due to his philosophy of [[IFightForTheStrongestSide fighting for the strongest side]] and bore no actual malice toward Link, eventually surrendering when he realized that Link was the strongest side. In the manga, he's a full-on PsychoForHire who takes sadistic glee in his pillaging, cutting off Link's arm, and even threatening to rape Ilia.

* EvilCannotComprehendGood: The manga provides a new angle to his IFightForTheStrongestSide philosophy. After capturing Ilia, he tries to cheer her up by saying that she will soon be the new queen of the Twilight Realm. But Ilia is still grieving over the fact that she thinks Link is dead, which frustrates King Bulblin, as he can't understand why Ilia would care so much about someone he thinks is so weak. As he grew up in an environment that encourages being a SocialDarwinist, he believes that the strong deserve to rule over the weak, as that is the only life he knows.



* MarsNeedsWomen: In the Manga adaptation, he notes Ilia's attractiveness. See AdaptationalVillainy.



* RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil: Makes this implied threat towards Ilia in the manga:
-->'''King Bulblin:''' This one looks nice. I'll make you my toy. I'll make sure to savor.... The taste of your fear.



* SuddenlyVoiced: For the majority of the game, Bulblin remained silent and only spoke before and after the final battle with him in Hyrule Castle. In the manga, he speaks from the outset.

Castle.



* ThePatriarch: Deconstructed in the manga. Ook is the leader of the monkeys because he's strong enough to protect the forest from threats. However, he had been getting older and secretly feared that someone would overthrow him, a fear that was exacerbated when he became possessed by a Twilit Parasite, causing him to become tyrannical and hostile.
* PlayingWithFire: The manga gives the Gale Boomerang the ability to generate flames as well as wind.
* SuddenlyVoiced: He can talk in the manga.



* AdaptationalIntelligence: In the game proper, the Twilit Messengers are little more than mindless, feral creatures that did nothing but follow Zant's orders. In the manga, they are sapient enough to talk.

-->'''Midna''': Traitors, ha! You want to know why none would call you king? It was your eyes, Zant. All saw it, a lust for power burning in your pupils... Did you think we'd forget our ancestors lost their king to such greed?
