4 Massive Reasons Breath of the Wild's Zelda is the Best Princess Zelda Yet

4186 ratings | 173709 views
The Zelda series has portrayed Princess Zelda in an interesting number of ways, from the cocky pirate captain Tetra to the selflessly kindhearted Zelda from Skyward Sword, but none of them are as good as what Breath of the Wild has to offer.

I so badly wanted to see a moment between Zelda and king Rhoam at the end of the game to resolve the issues between them, I was pretty disappointed when that didnt happen.

Because in this game we saw some of her character?

Did any one ever catch the reference Zelda made in this Loz game? In one memory at the sacred ruins where Link was being blessed by the goddess Hylia, she spoke “Whether skyward bound, adrift in time, or steeped in the glowing embers of twilight.” In this memory she made three references in the same sentence! Skyward bound: Reference to Skyward Sword. Adrift in time: Ocarina of Time Steeped in the glowing embers of twilight: Twilight princess. It warms my heart to see Nintendo tell new coming fans with the arrival of Botw that other Zelda games exist! Seriously though it triggers the living f*ck out of me when someone plays Breath of the Wild and is oblivious to other Zelda games or hasn’t played the other games.

Also because she's hot... what? What are you looking at me like that for? I didn't say anything?
TheOneGuy1111 (6 months ago)
Personally, I like the fact that she's a scientist.  Not just because I like scientists, but also because it provides an aspect of her character beyond just being a princess with all the duties and powers of such.

Zelda is a damsel in distress in this game. It’s verbally dressed up differently by saying she “is fighting Ganon”, and even toyed with by showing she “captured” Ganon. But if she really captured him, she would be free to go where she wants while he was incapacitated. She became his prisoner as he became hers. Several NPCs even tell Link he has to go save her. Finishing blow or not, at the end of the day, you’re still having to go save the princess from the bad guy at the castle. Still, I think she’s a great character who I like very much. I hope they actually use this skin in the new Smash for Switch cause I’m sick of the Twilight Princess design.

I like skyward sword Zelda. She was quirky, fun, and sweet. She took her destiny in stride, and was extremely selfless. And she was just adorable.

Zelda's dad was not telling her off. He was trying to help her in a way.

the only thing I dislike about her is the voice, its so annoying xD swear if I hear THE BLOOD MOON RISES ONCE AGAIN I will go insane

The reason why I like Zelda, is because she's very Pretty and really Beautiful. And very Attractive. That's all I know. I know it's not appropriate, but that's why I like her.

In my opinion wind wakers's Zelda is the best, has a counter part of a pirate when she's not a princess.
Butterballs (8 months ago)
BOTW’s Zelda reminds me of Sakura Haruno, annoying and useless.
Byrd Games (8 months ago)
I think Twilight Princess Zelda is the best because she sacrificed herself to save Midna which to me was the bravest act I’ve seen her commit...

*WARNING:UNPOPULAR OPINION* I kind of liked Zelda's voice in Breath of the Wild. Yes, I know the actress wasn't British and yes, they could have gotten an actual British actress to make it more authentic. But, when you get the memories in order, it adds to here moodiness and resentment of Link. When I first heard her get mad at him, I immediately she was being portrayed as a spoiled, snobbish Princess. Hearing her talk about her guilt and blaming herself for not mastering her power, I think her voice took on a more vulnerable touch. There were no other voices with accents and the wavering in her voice when she calls out to Link did touch me a bit. So, yeah maybe they could have gotten a better voice, but I enjoyed the performance and considering what they got, I think Ms. Summersett did a pretty god job.

Naagh...I can't choose! All the zelda's are great in their own way!
romahnae (9 months ago)
1:16- that right there is why she is not the best zelda. she got everybody killed, her dad, all 4 champions, the citizens residing in hyrule castle and castle town.. all dead.

Breath of the wild Zelda is my favorite too!!!!😀😀

It’s either this one or spirit tracks
Ce1es (9 months ago)
Seems I saw this way too late.... Well I agree that BotW's Zelda is gorgeous, I'd still give two other honorable mentions: 1st: Skyward Sword's Zelda, as she was the first I really cared enough about that I wanted to save her because I wanted to save her and not because of the adventure I wanted to go on. 2nd: Tetra and I mean Tetra before she realizes she's the princess and starts to suck. I mean she's a pirate and badass and needs no saving whatsoever. Instead it's the other way around most of the time. However if I had to choose, I'd prefer Mipha and/or Urbosa. Gosh that game is full of adorable ladies.

100% best Zelda.
Francisco Peralta (10 months ago)
I don't know if I would call this one the best, but in a few ways, I can see why people would favor this one. In a few ways maybe she is the best, in every way, I don't think so.
Fablewolf (10 months ago)
To be honest BOTW Zelda has probably one of the most fleshed out and complex characters in the series. They go more into detail about the struggles she is facing along with the struggles that Link is facing, and there is a valid reason for it. And she doesn’t just sit there and wait for Link to rescue her. As strange as it sounds she is ultimately rescuing him by keeping Ganon at bay long enough for Link to reach the castle, and if it weren’t for her Link would have already been long dead if it wasn’t for her knowledge of the Shrine of resurrection.

I really want a game that actually has you playing zelda. Like if they had a breath of the wild 2 but 100 years ago with Zelda’s perspective, that’d be soooo amazing!!

What's remarkable to me about Zelda is the trial of her faith. She worked so hard and studied so much to unlock her power, and yet she was left fruitless. I don't believe it was Link's life being threatened alone that enabled her power. I believe all the traveling she did, all the research she did, and all the praying she did prepared her for that moment. I served a 2 year full time mission for my Church and a huge chunk of the time, we were going door to door just looking for people to teach, we practically never found people who wanted to learn this way, but we kept at it and eventually miracles happened and individuals who did want to learn came to us. Those rare individuals were worth more than the thousands of doors slammed in my face and the the hundreds of people cursing us just for trying to help people.
TFP Radgirl (1 year ago)
Personally, this isn't my favorite, you bring up good points. Especially with her father and human thing. But this Zelda doesn't feel like Zelda to me. She kinda feels like a whole different person, especially with her voice. I haven't played the some of the other games, but my personal favorite is the one from Twilight Princess.
Viggzplashfilms (1 year ago)
I love Zelda's character design in BotW, it's like an anime. She is very cute and beautiful in this game. She has also a powerful power

Am I the only one that cringes a bit with Super Mario Oddysey? I love the game, I have preordered it, but I can’t feel ashamed for buying a game with the classic story of rescuing a helpless princess
Alexander Jakubowski (1 year ago)
Personally, I think the story was great in the sense that Zelda as a character was portrayed as being deeply conflicted beyond just being kidnapped. She had real depth because of this and seemed like she could be a real person, unlike in OOT and most other games where she was really just some puremaiden mary sue with no real personality. The downside is that there just was not enough story content, not enough context, not enough character development. The more minor characters just seemed to be an afterthought. Personally I think it was a big narrative mistake to make everything happen in the past and through memories. There was no reason for it whatsover. The "I have amnesia" Link was so cliche. I really will never understand why they decided to go this route but it simply did not work. In a broad sense, They made Zelda way too convoluted for what it is as the game we fell in love with. The Sheikah tech idea is admittedly cool, but was not needed. A simple medieval fantasy setting would have sufficed and would have been better ultimately. A lot of the time money and effort expended on making this Sheikah tech come to life (and the divine beasts) could have been spent on developing a better more cohesive story, more and better dungeons, etc. Etc. And also something a lot more interesting than "omg technology!!1!!" To expand on the Sheikah. I just don't get why they felt they needed these unnecessary plot devices, and I hope in the future they realize that simple is better, and that new is not necessarily better either, especially for a game like this. I say scrap the dumb technology idea, scrap the dumb memories amnesia thing, scrap the devine beasts, make a better menu system, and this game could have been perfect.

You forgot reason number 5; She's fudging hot!

This is the best version of Zelda I have ever seen in a game. I love how strong, sweet and human she is.
Ekigaku (1 year ago)
ChelseaInsaneDay (1 year ago)
Just yes. To everything. I love how Zelda doesn't quietly accept her grim duty as she does in TP, but questions it. She shows vulnerability and insecurity, but also shows strength and power at when it's time to fight. Nintendo did it right. 👏👏
Zues Gaming (1 year ago)
Zelda is the best
Gabriel Freitas (1 year ago)
*Laughs in Skyward Sword

I personally think the best Zelda would be a combo from BOTW, Twilight Princess, and Ocarina.

Tetra is equally as good

WOAH spoiler warning please!!
Obilim (1 year ago)
Idk I still really Tetra, I think they are tied for me. I also quite like spirit tracks Zelda, she was funny, she comes 2nd
WHY YOU CAME (1 year ago)
I just beat the game today, and I was thinking much the same thing. Also, the King's journal really says much about Zelda. Especially the ages given when she was made to carry her burden.
omegazero ozew (1 year ago)
1 reason zelda from botw isn't the best zelda in zelda, she isn't a likeable character like the zelda in skyward sword, in skyward sword the whole reason you want to beat the game, is because you actually care about zelda, that was the first time I ever cared about zelda a character, in botw, zelda is given a mission, which she will eventually fullfill, I couldn't really care much about zelda story an her development when the game is so focus on just doing anything you want, she was weak from the beginning an lack personality, yes, she feels human, and one can identify with her problems, but even so, I never really care about what she did, it was only on 1 or 2 memorys where the character became slightly interesting, while in skyward sword, zelda is amazingly likeable, and you want to get close to the character because there's a sense of humanity in link, they both share a bond and you as the player want to know about it, in botw zelda is just, irrelevant. I love botw as a game, but zelda in this game is just slightly more interesting than zelda from ocarina, but worst than tetra (before becoming zelda, her personality just became bland after that). Skyward sword zelda is the best zelda in zelda, there's no arguing

• Kaijed • (1 year ago)
I honestly preferred Princess Zelda from the Twilight Princess game. She seemed more than a princess that should be babied, even being one of the hardest bosses of the game. This opinion probably stems from my overall fondness of the game, but I still count it as an arguable opinion
Gomorrah (1 year ago)
not to mentions she was 17 when she went to face ganon. she wasnt even an adult and she fought for 100 years. but the disgusting fans reduced to her ass in one or two cut scenes in the game smfh

Also did you know that there is a secret in breath of the wild. If you talk to kass after completing all of his quests he will sing you a song that reveals that link and Zelda liked each other romantically!! Which is AMAZING
Chandler Combs (1 year ago)
I love this Zelda a ton! However the zelda from skyward sword was also amazing! Her relationship with link was so adorable and charming! I thought she had such good character development and i had such a huge urgency to go save her! Not sure which one i like best😜

brandonisi (1 year ago)
This Zelda got so much hate and I never understood why. She's hardcore. She literally went and faced Ganon by herself....and that's after her father is killed, all four champions are killed, everyone in the castle and caste town are killed, and even Link himself is at best on the brink of death. Glad she and Link now get to pick up where they left off before the Great Calamity rather than be elderly looking back on all the years that were wasted by holding back Ganon.
Palathaxx (1 year ago)
I beg to differ, she's a bitch. She slacks off from her training, putting everyone's lives in danger, she treats Link like shit, atleast in the beginning portion, and she tells him that he shouldn't do his job because of her stupid anger, and when she does trey Link normal, it's to dump her stress and personal problems on him. Skyward Sword Zelda does a better job with personality than this one does, because all BOTW Zelda is, is stress, failure, success, sadness, happy ending. SS Zelda doesn't follow that linear path. She may have fought of Ganon for 100 years, but that was only AFTER she got all of her friends and all of Hyrule brutally killed and destroyed. And to put the cherry on my birthday cake, let's not forget her awful voice acting, atleast in the English version
