For me it would be hands down Navi even though she almost always says the same things it almost made me cry when she leaves at the end.... Also Epona is sort of a sidekick since I used her a lot! I think Linebeck is annoying as hell what he said was funny but he looks retarded.
Midna's my favorite! I loved her sophistication, wit, and playfulness throughout the whole game. Early on, yes, she treated Link like a slave after rescuing him. However, that shell was broken in no time and we had a powerful force on our side when Link and her became extremely good friends. She needs to be in future installments.
Here are my views for all sidekicks from OoT-ST (or to say all 3D games). I will grade them from a one to ten (one being worst and ten being best).
Navi: She was an annoying fairy that repeated the same things over and over even when your heading in the direction. She is very useful when there are secret holes or locations but other than that...I'd give her a four.
Tatl: Another fairy. Much less annoying than Navi yet quite as useful as her. I'd give her a six.
King of the Red Lions: ... not much of a sidekick. I count it as both a sidekick and a "horse". Doesn't give much help at all so I'd give it a one.
Midna: Actually the best sidekick Link has had. She's got emotion and a story behind her. Very sassy and rude sometimes (like all princesses). Very helpful, maybe too helpful. I'd give her a nine.
Linebeck and Celia: A snoty sailor on the hunt for treasure and a fairy. Linebeck is kind of rude yet comical at some points and Celia is once again a fairy. The two's arguments are quite humorous for me to see which gives them an eight.
Ghost Zelda: The one time she is a sidekick! Not always there for Link because she is EEK! A RAT! EW EW EW! a princess. It's kind of her to put on some armor and help Link now and then with dungeons but other than that she is just there to get her body back. I'd give her a seven.
Well there they are. All sidekicks. So Midna is my fav. Thanks for your time.
This is a tough one for me. I want to agree with Linebeck but Midna is right up there too. Midna had a story that just got deeper and followed with the plot of Twilight Princess, while linebeck provided comedy and provided transportation in phantom hourglass. I cant choose lol.
Navi because she is the first sidekick Link had (in the order of games that I played). She was with me through my first real Zelda experience. Tatl had a personality, and I liked the ringing sound she made. Ezlo and the KoRL were both helpful and humorous, but also serious, depending on the point in the game.
in my view midnas the best sidekick, she has the best character development of any sidekick she was also a key part of the story of twilight princess unlike other sidekicks who generally are just put in to aid the player and provide hints (e.g navi)
I like Midna, for the reasons that others have stated: great backstory, funny dialect, a grows-on-you personality, and her weird speech. The only thing that I disliked about her is that she wasn`t helpful in a practical sense, just a decoration of sorts when you were a wolf.
No Zelda side Kick is the superior in my eye. They all bring something new and very extrodinary to Link`s side. This is why my absolute favorite is the boat/fairy/imp/ ghost, Princess of Winged Twili. Be afraid, be very afraid…
This may shock alot of people but I would have to say Navi. Probably just because of the nostalgia I get when playing OoT. I have alot of memories involving Navi. Granted there not all good memories lol.
My second favorite is definitely Midna. I just really like her personality.
You get the best out of others when you give the best of yourself.
Midna just pissed me off, even though she had a good backstory and blah blah. She just hated on me wat too much and I wasnt having any of that. We had beef. So id say the King of Red Lions just because he couldnt bother you, and he enjoyed his peace and quiet, like me. Not like that little ball of noise Navi.
The reason I chose "L6I0N4K" as my profile name is because I love Link, and 604 is the Vancouver area code.
There is not nearly enough Linebeck on this page, so I attempt to add some more. Seriously, he is one of the most charismatic characters to enter the Zelda games, and has the greatest character design ever. Seriously, the scene when the Ocean King promises him that reward (BGM: Linebeck Leaps into Action) is one of my most memorable in Zeldadom.
I salute you, captain Linebeck.
"My name is Debbie Diamonds. You killed my Sky Whale. Prepare to die."
Tatl was my favorite. She was funny imo, and her sarcasm was a nice taste. Her chime got a bit annoying, but I didn't hear it all that often.
And, yes, Linebeck was my second favorite. He always had me giggling tbh.
