me: Princess Zelda’s a pretty cool character and is way more than just a damsel in distress.

some nerd: source????

Didn’t do shit in Link’s awakening though

This post has over 50 thousand notes and this is the most baffling response to it I have ever seen. 

Yes, Zelda didn’t do anything in a game that she was not in. You fucking got me. In other news, Mario is a bad character because he didn’t do shit in Metroid Prime. 

Ocarina Zelda really didn’t do all that much. She held the carrot on the stick, and gave you the light arrows, but really and truly, she got her ass kicked twice.

Tetra, by comparison, was an accomplished pirate, and joined you directly in battle against Ganon.

BotW Zelda fought off Ganon for a hundred years, and was incredibly intelligent without the triforce of wisdom’s power.

On the other hand, Oracle of Ages/Seasons Zelda, I can barely even remember.

On the other other hand, Twilight Princess Zelda only surrendered because her soldiers lives were at risk, and she was a stoic ruler even as a captive.

Zelda is widely varied across her reincarnations, some were born great, others started with nothing, some achieved greatness, others were just the princess in the fridge. Different Zeldas really shouldn’t be lumped into one group, and instead treated as individuals.

Honestly, Link is pretty generic by comparison, as lovable and dorky as he is.

Don't be the product, buy the product!
