Basically, I saw Badass Link as being an one-shot joke. While your character, being a doll, is silly, it's not too silly. Yeah, it's funny, yay, but the characters will learn to overlook that, since the only silly thing is that he's stuck on the body of a doll- and he can have his darker, more serious moments. Badass Link is a joke
Falkon told me he wrote it as a joke, and wouldn't mind if it was a rejected. When the character itself (and his actions, thoughts, and just everything about him) is a joke, then it's just too much. When the circumstances surrounding the character put him in a situation that is silly, but that also allows him to have some more serious moments, then I find it OK. I can see Chibizama having those serious moments, but I can't see Badass Link having them.
Plus, Falkon had already used Link, and two Links would be just repetitive.
