*** Zelda acts very VideoGame/{{Tsundere}} twoards Link twoards the beginning, but seems to seem him in a different light later on according to memories and her diary. It's even more implied in the Master Sword memory.
*** A sidequest reveals that she actually is in love with Link, as she turns down someone's love and tells them that she is already in love (with Link). Her love for him also [[spoiler: activates her Triforce Powers]]. This also ends up appeasing a bunch of Zelda/Link Shippers.

*** Zelda acts very VideoGame/{{Tsundere}} twoards towards Link twoards in the beginning, but seems because she resented [[spoiler:how he was chosen to seem him in a different light later on according to memories and be TheHero long before her diary. It's even powers could develop]]. Her diary states she does feel guilty for snapping at him, though it only makes her more implied in angry with herself. After Link rescues her, [[RescueRomance she looks at him as though seeing him for the Master Sword memory.

** In ''P4'', [[AmbiguouslyGay Kanji]] and [[WholesomeCrossdresser Naoto]] get a fair amount of ship tease, which is added to in all the spin-offs. However, it goes ultimately goes nowhere, as [[ShipSinking all of it is one-sided on Kanji's part, and Naoto is completely oblivious to Kanji's crush on]] [[SweetPollyOliver her]].

[[folder: The Legend of Zelda series]]
* In ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' franchise, due to the fact that it's canon that each Link is essentially a different version unless otherwise noted, there's plenty of room for shipping with the various ladies he meets on his quest.
** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' did its share of Ship Teasing. Between the little come-back-safely speech Ilia gives to Link (complete with appropriate music swelling in the background), the hand-holding scene between Link and Zelda before the final battle, and the heartstring-tugging farewell by [[spoiler:Midna]] in which she almost says something emotional to Link, the shippers had a field day... especially considering that Link's a HeroicMime with no dialogue to offer clues.
** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks'' is dripping with this for Link and Zelda.
** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'' also seems to be heading in the Link/Zelda direction, to the point of ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mR6tYh4IL9w an official trailer]]'' detailing their romantic chemistry. They even somewhat trick shippers into thinking a kiss is a part of a ceremony.
** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' was the game that first got the shippers into a frenzy:
*** Nabooru's "Promise" to Young Link, which gets a sight less ambiguous when she muses that she should have kept it in light of how handsome he grew up to be.
*** Talon asking Link if he wants to marry Malon and the Gossip Stone which says she wishes for a knight in shining armor to sweep her off her feet.
*** Both of Saria's goodbyes to Link.
*** Ruto actually [[ChildhoodMarriagePromise getting engaged to Link]], the scene in which it happens dripping with [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything subtext]].
*** There tends to be an underlying vibe to any scene with Link and Zelda in it, and he's shown (and implied via dialogue) to be quite motivated to protect her. In particular, there's a great deal of unspoken emotion in their last scene together, to be interpreted as the player wills.
** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'' teases Link/Zelda, Link/Medli, and Link/Mila.
** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening'': "You got Marin! [[UnusualEuphemism Is this your big chance]]?"
** In ''VideoGame/HyruleWarriors'', there's Link/Zelda, Link/Cia, and Link/Lana.
** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' had quite a few options.
*** Zelda acts very VideoGame/{{Tsundere}} twoards Link twoards the beginning, but seems to seem him in a different light later on according to memories and her diary. It's even more implied in the Master Sword memory.
*** Mipha was a childhood friend of Link's who is out right stated to have feelings for Link, just like the previously mentioned Ruto. [[spoiler:Too bad she died before she could confess.]]
*** Paya has an obvious crush on Link, but her diary implies she'd live with the heartache if he choose Zelda.

* ''VideoGame/Shantae'':
** Rottytops, the resident zombie, is a merciless flirt. Nearly all of this flirting is directed at Shantae[[note]](although she does give Bolo a quick glance, too)[[/note]]. In the very first game, when she barely even knows Shantae, she says that she likes her passion. In Risky's Revenge, the very first thing she does is call Shantae "snack cakes," and according to her brothers Abner and Poe, is talking about her near-constantly. Then along comes Shantae and the Pirate's Curse in which she does the following...
*** Fakes a leg injury so that Shantae will carry her through a dark forest (in a bridal carry, at that!)
*** Follows Shantae to Tan Line Island, where they both end up in [[{{Fanservice}} ridiculous outfits.]] Rottytops is thrilled that they match.
*** When Shantae [[spoiler:finds Rotty's human soul on Mud Bog Island,]] she (unknowingly) gushes to Shantae... about Shantae, and worries about the ways she keeps screwing up their friendship.
*** Invites herself to Shantae's for a sleepover at the end of the game.
** While the teasing is toned down a little in Half-Genie Hero, Rottytops does call Shantae "snack cakes" again, and when she asks Shantae to come to Cape Crustacean with her, she makes it sound like a date.

** If there's a chance of a canonical pairing coming out of ''P4'', [[AmbiguouslyGay Kanji]] and [[WholesomeCrossdresser Naoto]] are it. Granted, Naoto is completely oblivious to Kanji's crush on [[SweetPollyOliver her]].
