The relationship between Link and Zelda has long been debated. Some see the two as a romantic pair, often nicknamed “Zelink,” while others see them as simply friends or even relatives. It’s time to put an end to the arguing and discover the truth. I have definitive proof that Zelink is indeed canon, thanks to evidence found in the CD-i series.
First of all, let’s take Link’s ongoing request for a kiss from Zelda. He wouldn’t be asking the princess for a kiss if he had no desire to be romantically involved with her. Zelda turns him away, but not due to lack of interest. She doesn’t want to kiss him in front of an audience. How would her father, the king, react to his daughter kissing Link? Dads tend to be overly protective of their little girls, therefore she acts uninterested so he won’t be suspicious.
Link won’t kiss just anybody. When other women pull him in for a kiss, he resists. The reason? His heart belongs to the princess!
Once Link and Zelda finally have a moment alone, they lean in, but just before their lips meet, Gwonam pops in and ruins the whole thing. Geez Gwonam, take your squadala somewhere else!
So, there you have it. Based on the evidence found in Wand of Gamelon and Faces of Evil, it’s clear that Link and Zelda belong together, making Zelink canon.
