Since Link uses a sword and shield, he has been branded by many as being a clone of Cassandra or Sophitia. Although he has similar moves, Link aso can throw bombs, shoot arrows, and throw his boomerang, each attack being different from the other sword and shield wielders because they are all long range weapons.
Link wears the traditional Kokiri outfit, a green hat and tunic. Link's weapon of choice is the Master Sword, which can only be wielded by the chosen hero of Hyrule. Link's shield is the Hylian Shield, which can be purchased in the main town of Hyrule, right outside the palace.
- Soul Calibur II -After finishing off Ganondorf, Link had discovered that Ganondorf was using a piece of Soul Edge, which existed in another world. So, Link uses the power of the triforce to travel into the world where Soul Edge originated. His journey is to find Soul Edge, and destroy it.
