Heroes

    Link Skywaker 

  • Composite Character: Link Skywaker is a mashup of Luke Skywalker and Link. For the original trilogy, that Link is the Hero of Winds; in the sequel trilogy, Link is instead modeled after the adult Hero of Time in a couple key scenes, while he is inspired by his Link's Awakening remake design through most of The Last Hero. Additionally, Return of the Hero reveals that Dark Link (based upon Toon Link's Super Smash Bros. Palette Swap, although the setting is based upon Dark Link's appearance in Zelda II: The Adventure of Link) is Link Skywaker's Super-Powered Evil Side rather than a separate entity.
  • Cool Sword: At first, he wields the Master Saber, which he then uses to fight Ganondarth in The Empire Smashes Back. After losing the Master Saber, he then gets the green Warp Saber, which he can use to summon warp zones.
  • Heroic Mime: Link Skywaker keeps his status as demanded by his first name; as for his second name, any dialogue is replaced by either pantomime or as a response through captions/textboxes.
  • Related in the Adaptation: Given that Link and Peach come from two entirely different franchises, it's only natural that this trope is put in effect when they take the roles of siblings Link Skywaker and Princess Pleia.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Between The Empire Smashes Back and Return of the Hero, Link takes a big one as effortlessly rips through both Wiibba's forces and Lord Ganondarth.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: After being the idealistic hero of the original trilogy, Link Skywaker repeatedly ignores Reysy and refuses to help her in The Last Hero. Unlike the original film, his newfound cynicism is never explained or justified, making it seem like he's just being a jerk to her for no reason.
  • Tricked-Out Gloves: Link's robot arm is represented with the Power Glove.

    Princess Pleia 

  • Composite Character: Princess Pleia is Princess Peach as Princess Leia. In Return of the Hero, Pleia also disguises herself as Sniper Joe (as Boushh). Like the Emperor, she's actually a triple mash-up, even without the Sniper Joe disguise: it is later revealed in Return of the Hero that Pleia is secretly Princess Zelda in disguise.
  • Related in the Adaptation: Given that Link and Peach come from two entirely different franchises, it's only natural that this trope is put in effect when they take the roles of siblings Link Skywaker and Princess Pleia.

    Yodachu 

  • Composite Character: Pikachu and Yoda. He also wears a Meowth hoodie.
  • Later Installment Weirdness: Yodachu's design in The Last Hero is noticeably different from his appearance in The Empire Smashes Back and Return of the Hero, now looking more like an old man and less like an adorable Pikachu.
  • Troll: Yodachu seems to enjoy toying with Link for his own amusement. His laughter is from the early Pokémon episodes.

    Sonic the Hedgehog (Lando Calrissian) 

  • Butt-Monkey: Sonic, in The Empire Smashes Back, mostly serves as Chewie Kong's punching bag. Justified as he did hand them over to Lord Ganondarth and let Han Brolo be turned into a trophy. It continues through the first half of Return of the Hero until he finally gets his moment that subverts the trope in the second half.
  • Composite Character: Sonic is a mashup of Sonic the Hedgehog and Lando Calrissian. Much like the Pleia/Sniper Joe example above, Sonic also disguises himself as Meta Knight in Return of the Hero.
  • No Name Given: Unlike other characters, the Sonic/Lando mashup character is never given any portmaneau name in the episodes.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In The Empire Smashes Back, Sonic is a Casanova Wannabe and The Chew Toy. In Return of the Hero, he's gone Super Sonic for the Battle of Endor and loses his obnoxiousness.
  • Visual Pun: During the Battle of Endor equivalent, Sonic's call sign is Gold Leader.note

Villains

    Phantom Lord Ganondarth / Ganakin Skywaker 

    Samus Aran (Boba Fett) 

  • Adaptational Villainy: Despite being the main heroine of Metroid, Samus Aran works with the villains here due to being cast in Boba Fett's role.
  • Bounty Hunter: With both Samus and Boba sharing the bounty hunter profession, it's only fair that they are combined in this series.
  • Composite Character: Samus Aran and Boba Fett.
  • No Name Given: Unlike other characters, the Samus/Boba mashup character is never given any portmaneau name in the episodes.

    The Mighty Wiibba 

  • Composite Character: Wario and Jabba the Hutt.
  • Dies Differently in Adaptation: Unlike Jabba, Wiibba isn't strangled to death, despite hanging with a chain around his neck for a while. Instead, Wiibba is swallowed whole by a giant Piranha Plant.
  • Gonk: Wario's already-ugly features are exaggerated to over-the-top levels as Wiibba.
  • Rasputinian Death: Wiibba is hanged from a chain around his neck, and then he falls into the jaws of a Piranha Plant, which is then crushed by Wiibba's sail barge crashing down upon it and exploding.

    Emperor Mew-Jora 

  • Composite Character: Emperor Mew-Jora is triple mash-up of Emperor Palpatine, Mewtwo, and Majora's Mask. His One-Winged Angel form, Mew-Jora's Wrath, combines Mega Mewtwo X, Mega Mewtwo Y, and Majora's Wrath.
  • Logical Weakness: Emperor Mew-Jora may be incredibly powerful... but since he's a Mewtwo, he's still just a Pokémon. Turns out that using a Poké Ball is all it takes to capture him.
  • One-Winged Angel: After being apparently defeated by Ganakin Skywaker, Emperor Mew-Jora assumes a much more physically-intimidating form known as Mew-Jora's Wrath.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: Emperor Mew-Jora gets caught by Link using Yodachu's Poké Ball instead of falling down the shaft to the reactor and exploding.

    Shylo Ren / Baby Brolo 

  • Adaptational Villainy: As Baby Brolo, Baby Mario goes from being the infant form of one of gaming's greatest heroes to being one of the main villains of the sequel trilogy.
  • Chekhov's Skill: In Part 2 of The Triforce Awakens, when Baby Brolo first unmasks himself, one of his specials is listed to be "Saber Stretch". This foreshadows the manner in which he kills Han Brolo.
  • Composite Character: Shylo Ren is a mashup of a Shy Guy and Kylo Ren. When unmasked, he is revealed to be Baby Brolo, a mashup of Baby Mario and Ben Solo.
  • Decomposite Character: Baby Mario is simply the infant form of Mario in their home series. Here, they are separate characters, with Baby Brolo being Han Brolo's Identical Son.
  • Enfant Terrible: He's Baby Mario and takes the role of the major villain Kylo Ren.
