Go To



* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'':
** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'', with Link and the Poe Collector; the first time he encounters Link he says: "Oh...you are quite an energetic young man. You're brave and handsome, too... Heh heh heh...your name is Link, isn't it? Heh heh heh...don't be surprised. I can read people's minds. If I looked as good as you, I could run a different kind of business...heh heh heh..."
*** [[ChickMagnet Women from all over]] are throwing themselves at Link, including TWO princesses, but the only one who he interacts with on a regular basis is the [[SweetPollyOliver blonde "boy"]] in the corner playing the lyre (and Link's always so ''intent'' on finding [[SmokeOut where]] [[{{Bifauxnen}} "he"]] [[SmokeOut disappears to]]).

** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'': After her life was saved by her (temporary) HeroicSacrifice, Midna was noticeably a bit too intimate when it came to Princess Zelda...since they ''did'' [[spoiler:share a body]] for quite some time... This seemed to be returned by Zelda, since in the final scene [[spoiler:she appears to be even more disappointed than Link that Midna is leaving forever.]]
** In the ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames Oracle of Seasons]]'' manga, Ricky the ''kangaroo'' was quite Gay for Link: gushing over the [[ChosenOne Chosen Hero]], oozing admiration at Link's sword skills, and openly voicing his disappointment at the possibility of him having a female love interest... Ricky having a pouch makes this one [[ViewerGenderConfusion questionable]].
** In the ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaFourSwordsAdventures Four Swords]]'' manga, there's some [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/the_legend_of_zelda_four_swords_plus/v02/c011/5.html flamingly]] [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/the_legend_of_zelda_four_swords_plus/v02/c012/26.html obvious]] HoYay between Red Link and Blue Link, which certainly says some [[ScrewYourself interesting things]] about Link in general...
*** Purple Link/Vio and [[EvilTwin Shadow Link]], especially after Vio [[spoiler: [[FakeDefector switches sides]].]]
** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'': Given some of her dialogue/behavior, as well as how fiercely protective and devoted she is toward Zelda, it can make one a little curious as to the exact nature of the relationship between Impa and [[spoiler:Hylia]] before the events of the game.
*** Mixing FoeYay with HoYay is Ghirahim's implied interest towards Link. He has NoSenseOfPersonalSpace around him on two occasions and [[http://whereareyouravengers.tumblr.com/post/107174364379/%CA%96-what-place-ghirahim-%CA%96 although in this picture]] Ghirahim is merely getting low to the ground before sneaking up behind Link it certainly looks like's he's going down on Link. He even talks about the two being tied together by a [[RedStringofFate red thread of fate]].
** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'' has Carlov the sculptor. After you get the color picto box, you can give him pictures and get figurines that give you information on any character, enemy, or boss (always at least one tidbit the rest of the game doesn't tell you.) Well, if you take a picture of figurine enthusiast Manny (the guy who hangs around the gallery) and give it to him, though he's excited about ''any'' subject you give him, he'll gush about this one in a way that's ''very'' hard to see as platonic. "That golden, freshly brushed hair... That stylish, yet unassuming bod... Why, this is a mighty handsome man! Mercy! My very soul compels me to make a figurine from this picture!" Oh, and the official art of him is holding a figurine. Of who? Yes, Manny. (Carlov gushes even more about the subject's beauty if you take a picture of Carlov himself, though; he seemingly doesn't recognize the picture as himself.)
* [[http://www.zeldainformer.com/news/that_romantic_spark_part_ix_-_beyond_heterosexual This website lists Link's Ho Yay moments with other male characters]].
* Kafei and Link in Majora's Mask has a following, possibly owing to Kafei's curiosity towards Link and his willingness to trust Link.
* Link departs Hyrule in Majora's mask for the purpose of finding a dear friend. He finds himself on another quest to save the world from the moon crashing down. He defeats the evil behind the plot who was possessing Skull Kid in the form of Majoras mask. Following being saved by Link, Skull Kid decides he likes him and, as he was looking for a friend to begin with, they end up playing together and a tree stump depicts a drawing the two did of them holding hands.
** Not to mention when Skull Kid (while being possessed by Majora's mask) looks to be frisking Link's unconscious body at the beginning when seeing if he has anything he can steal.
* The king of Gorons, Darunia, calling Link his sworn brother and wanting to give Link a bear hug along with the other male Gorons for his success in helping rid their cavern of an evil monster. He also gives him the Goron Ruby as a symbol of their friendship. Darunia and the other Gorons become big fans of Link for his courage.
** In Hyrule Warriors at the battle at the Temple of Souls, he arrives to help defend Link from Cia's Dark Links.
* Twilight Princess: Colin idolizes Link more than the other kids.
* Link sumo wrestling with Mayor Bo and Gor Coron in Twilight Princess.
* Cremia and Anju are friends, but with Anju getting married to Kafei, going to Clock Town has started to bother Cremia. Who says Kafei is the one she's pining for?
** To be fair, the game itself does, as the first assumption when Kafei disappears is that he's cheating on Anju with Cremia, as pretty much everyone on Anju's family knows about Cremia's unrequited crush. That being said, Anju never doubts Cremia, while she does doubt Kafei.
* In Breath of the Wild, Prince Sidon basically becomes Link's biggest fan after he purifies Vah Ruta and saves Zora's Domain from destruction and often exclaims how incredible Link is with extreme enthusiasm. Additionally, there's a male npc at one of the stables who will comment that Link has extremely beautiful features and is hit on when he's DisguisedInDrag as a Gerudo woman or by AmbiguouslyGay male npc.
